What Are You Thankful For?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am SO thankful for so much! My biggest blessing in 2007 was the birth of my baby girl! If you know know we have tried for SO long and our prayers finally came through. Everything happens for a reason on HIS watch...not ours.
I am thankful for my job, that helps support myself and my family, my loving parents that watch our new little one while we are at work, my new "family car", my degree that I finally obtained (hallelujiah!!!), food on the table, health, and so much more.

This morning, I woke up early and met up with my Sorors of ZETA PHI BETA SORORITY, INC! and some interest to help serve the homeless. This is a tradition that we do every year to help the less fortunate. We went early to help basically set up, get items cleaned up in the kitchen, set up tables and chairs, put tablecloths and centerpieces together, etc. This is an annual event that is held at the Brandin' Iron in San Bernardino near the baseball Stadium on "E" St. This is SO rewarding, because yes, I could had been at home with my family, others had meals to prepare, it was early, etc., HOWEVER....just think if we didn't have a stove to cook on, or any groceries to buy for our family, OR any family period...We take so many things for granted DAILY...
It is so rewarding to help others in need, it is nice to see people have a satisfying meal and enjoying their time with a smile on their face.

Remember to be thankful, think about what you have and what other don't have...
Stay Blessed...and don't forget to count your blessings.

Bre's first baby jar food....

Okay, so today we got a little bold and tried some baby food from the baby jar! She did really well! The first one we tried today was the green beens....I don't think she was too hot about it at first, but quickly begin to enjoy the treat! I am glad we tookher clothes off! Green stuff ended up in a few places! It was so cute! Enjoy!

Bre's First Halloween!!!

Okay...I know it has been a while, I will catch you up on everything that has been going on with me I promise! But before anything I had to get these pics on here cause we had to show miss Tinkerbell off! Isn't she cute!?

Fires, Winds, and Smoke Oh My!!!

This was a picture of my street yesterday!
Me and Reggie came home to this Sunday evening after a beautiful weekend in San Diego. On our way home from San Diego, we drove through the horrible fires in San Diego / Poway was horrible! So when I got home, was clueless of the fire in Lake Arrowhead...too close for comfort. As you can see the smoke in the background of the pics and how strong the winds were to blow down these elm trees.
4 years ago we had to deal with the Waterman Canyon fires when we had to evacuate...
Well it is Tuesday morning and thank God that winds have calmed down slightly in my area, but still really windy in others. I just pray that winds do not kick up bad enough where the fire changes direction and crawls over the mountain in back of my house. It's funny because you really don't know what to grab when you are forced to evacuate in 15 minuyes. You really can't say what youwould do until you are in that situation, believe me when I say...its kinda weird how that happens.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all families who may be affected by this fire and who may have lost their homes and or businesses or have been threatened. May God bless you all...and whoever is setting these fires, may they rot in you know where!

She Got her Ear Rangs!!!!

Well she did it! I have to admit, she was a soldier! I was real nervous about finally getting it done...i'm all frantic and forgot the dang pacifier at home...realized it when were half way to the mall. Daddy said she wouldn't need it and he was right! She didn't!
The right ear was easy breezy...only flinched byt the pic to the left here was after the left ear..I think it was the noise. But she popped her collar, well her hoodie and was good to go!
Then all of the sudden she copped this dang diva attitude, like, "Where's my water!?" I was like what the heck!? Didn't have any naps..was up till about 11ish...Dad finally put her to sleep with the Jungle Book doing the monkey dance...whatever that was! I put them both out my bedroom, I was pooped man! But she looks so freakin cute! I love her!

Words of Wisdom...noted from Maya Angelou

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."

"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'."

"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."

"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision."

"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."

"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone."

"People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."

"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

I'm Dying Here!!!

I am really trippin here. I am participating in a No Shopping Challenge on my Yahoo group and Lord am I having a hrd time!!! I really feel that now my mind is playing tricks on a sista! Big time! Everywhere I go I see cool stuff! Stuff is just calling my name! "Trisha...., Trisha....!!!"
I know some of my favorite LSS have had some new product arrive and I can't even go look at it because I am weak! So I am really trying my best to just stay away!!! I stay away from the scrapbook section at Target as well. I say to myself, "Well, it won't hurt to look.." Damnit! yes it will hurt me to look! Who am I fooling!? Hello! And why has the damn dollar bins have so much cool stuff I want!? They had some pretty cool ribbon, albums, etc.

There are advantages and disadvantages...

Advantages: Well it will force me to use what I have in my stash! You know I am a professional collector right? Yeah..I have a crap load of stuff...Well SO FAR...I have done well! I just can't wait till this mess is over, cause its giving me a headache!

DISADVANTAGES: the end of this challenge..the Ontario Scrapbook Expo is coming up! So what do you think I am gonna do? I will TRY and contain myself! After that SoCal Shop Hop you would think that I don't need anything else....well you know me! It's like freakin CRACK! LOL!

Lord Jesus help me...

National Card Making Day

Today was fun! I had a good time today making cards in honor of National Card Making Day!
Today, myself, Nancy, Alondra, Jennifer, Tomasa, Holly and Sylvia...and Baby Fiona made cards and scrapbooked today. We had a lot of fun as usual, lots of snacks as I wouldn't expect any less. I have never really took a plunge in card making but I thinkI did pretty well to not make cards on the usual. I made some Christmas cards for the holidays coming up and some Thank You cards which will always be in handy!

We scrapped from about 1:00pm - 9ish...yeah we are die harders! LOL!

So if any of you ladies are reading this, thank you for coming out! Thanks Nancy for taking the long trip and bringing sweet little Baby Fiona! She is getting so big and cute! Hopefully I will see you again this coming Monday! If not, we shall see each other again soon!

Making cards is not a hard task. It will also help diminish the huge "SCRAP" bin of scraps I have...left over from pther projects that I swear I will reuse! So, I will definatelt be making a committment to myself for trying harder on maximizing my purchases and use everything I buy! Since the No Shopping Challenge on our Yahoo board, it has really help me realize that I do have a lot of stuff! I just need to utilize what I have! But its like any scrapper on crack! We need a fix! Anyway, it's late, and I think I am getting into another dangerous topic...let me go before I write another few paragraphs on me being a professional collector of scrap items!

Goodnite Peeps!

Wednessday Night Woes!

He wants my insurance money! It happened just like in the movies!
Okay, this is kind of a funny story, even more so, because I was wondering what my next blog entry would be...and here we are!

Well Wednessday evening around 11ish...I was on my laptop as usual minding my business instant messageing some friends and Reggie is watching a movie. He was being a cool husband and decided to get some Dibs (new age Bon-Bon's) into a little bowl for us to share....
So, I'm poppin em' back to back...maybe had 5....until my mouth got all tingly...
The same kind of tingly feeling I get when I have an allergic reaction to peanuts or seafood! So, I tell Reggie, "Babe! I think there was a peanut in here! I think I ate it!" So, needless to say, the feeling intensified within minutes, I am in the bathroom, rinsing my mouth out, brushing my teeth, trying to get rid of all remnants of the peanut that was aaccidently in my ice cream!

I'm in the bathroom, frantically trying to rince it all out, while Reggie is by my side making sure I am okay but in the same breath, "Babe! We should sue!" So, I am like, "Boy be quiet! Go get me the box!" I wanted to see the box because you know a lot of times when you go for ice cream they have to put the disclaimer about allergies (peanuts). So I read it and it does say the disclaimer and it says that there are almonds in the ice cream! So I am like "WHAT!?" I turn the cannister around only to see the words, "Nestle Drumstick" written on the front of the box! So I am yelling, "REGGIE!!!!!! YOU GOT THE WRONG KIND!!!"

Okay, so he called himself replacing my Nestle Crunch Dibs with the Nestle Drumstick. The only thing they has in common was that the logo for both was red, white and blue and both made by Nestle! So he picked up the wrong one without reading the lable carefully! So, I am really frantic now! I'm thinking I ate just one little measly peanut, when I actually ate more than that! Within a few more minutes, the feeling intensifies even more! My throat is beginning to become numb, my lips are swelling and my eyes are itching!!! My baby is dead to the world sleeping the night away, I have to go to ER! OMG! CRAP! Last time this happened, there was a peanut on the bottom slice of my pizza and just went to bed hoping I would be fine in the morning....NOT! Last time I looked like an oversized chipmunk! It was so uncool! So I did not want a repeat of what happened last year so I had to go to the hospital!

At this point, Reggie is feeling completely horrible! =( I kept teasing him asking if he wanted my insurance money!? He said it wasn't enough! Sucker! I been giving him a hard time ever since...trying to kill me!

So a shot in my right butt cheek later, and a strong dose of Benedryl, I got sent home...
Another close call....he tried to kill me yall! LOL!

Weekend Has Come and Gone...Bummer

Well as time gets closer it is almost time for me to get back to work...darn!
I have been fortunate to be off work since May for my pregnancy leave. Bre just turned 3 months so at least I was able to stay home for that. I am blessed that she will be going to grandma's and grandpa's house while we are at work during the day. She knows them already very well and is very comfortable with them!

Anyway, my weekend consisted of making money, warm weather, and having fun! Saturday, we had a HUGE garage sale and made lots of money. Myself and my sister in law were out there hustling! Jaylene sold lots of baby stuff, clothes and toys..I had tons of scrapbook stuff, clothes, books, appliances, furniture, etc. Whatever didn't sell was not going back into the house, but will be going to Salvation Army tomorrow!

Sunday, I surprised Reg and took him to one of our favorite spots to eat breakfast, BC's Cafe. It was scrumptious! But we were so full! I should have chosen a different place to eat, because he wasn't aware that I was also taking him to the Los Angeles County Fair afterwards...It was HOT! Oh, and it was pretty pricey! $15 per person to get in and $10 to park! Geez! Not to mention we had to get a little something to quench our thirsts, good thing we weren't hungry. We saw some crazy items there from various vendors, like Fried Coke, Fried Frog Legs, Fried Snickers, Fried Twinkies, and there were a few others...
Even though we were only there for a few hours, we still had a good time with each other. Pictures will be posted later!

Ciao for now!

3 Months Old Today!

Well Miss Breanna is 3 months today! How exciting! Mommy and daddy have survived as well! Let me tell you....Breanna has been such a blessing to us. Alot of times we are stil in denial that we have a little one around here! Next thing I know she will be crawling with baby teeth coming in, biting on my fingers, while she gives me gut belly laughs!

God is SO good...all the time. Some of you know me and Reg have been married for almost 6 years and miscarried the first go around. We have finally been blessed this go. We realized that HE does things in his timeframe, not ours! We are so blessed....

I love my baby girl so much....

Lets see her accomplishments thus far: She is yelling at me that baby talk, smiling uncontrollably, spitting, blowing some major spit bubbles, recognizes and smiles at us, and grandma and grandpa, loves to watch Baby Einstein, well any cartoon for that matter! Um..what else...she is kinda greedy, but thats okay, I love all her rolls!

Scrap Pink!!!

This weekend many scrapbook stores held events to help support the Susan G. Comen for the cure fundraising campaign. Yesterday our LSS Among Friends (who unfortunatley will be soon closing their doors) held a 12 hour crop. Myself, Alondra and Jennifer were there among some other scrappers. We got a lot of work done. There were goodie bags for all, we all got cute pink breast cancer pins, there was a great cake made resembling the logo for breast cancer, we had some awesome food and everyone sitting at my table won great raffle prizes! Very fun!

It felt good to do this crop knowing that I was supporting a great cause! I have breast cancer survivors in my family...may they continue to stay blessed!

If you are interested in learning more about the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and how you can help, please see the information below:

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.
Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Poo on me!

Yup, Poo on me for not keeping my blog updated! I feel bad everytime one of my blogger friends may come to my page to see the same ole' post over and over again! Well hey, I been busy these days so give me a break!

I kist recently completed the SoCal Shop Hop where you had to go to 29 stores, whew....what a journey! But I had so much fun! Oh, did I mention how broke I was because of it!? Now I need to scrap to put everything I bought to use!

also my baby Bre has definately been keeping me on my toes! The girl is getting big and just doing alot of stuff! She is no longer wanting to be a baby and sit back! She just feels the need toi sit up! She is spitting and blowing some serious spit bubbles, she is blabbering at the tv and sucking the mess out of her wrists! She is too much...definately keeping me on my toes!

My dad andCathy has been down visiting from Arkansas, they have been down for about a month now and will be leaving on Monday. Yup, I am sad...won't see him again until next year, shooting for Thanksgiving. It may be my first attempt to fly with an infant...we will see how that goes.

Other than that, just trying to enjoy the time left from being off work.
I will try and keep up better on the blog!
My bad!

I know now!!!

I know now why I have been having a headache since the birth of my wonderful child!
Well..I been thinking...wondering what is up with this daily darn headache that seems to come and go!?
I have come to the conclusion that it is all of the high pitched baby talk I been doin lately! I guess she likes it, she smiles and talks back to me!
It's funny cause once I was talking to her, then not too long after that, the headache came! Hmph!

Shot aftermath...a little cranky today, partly because she insists on staying awake and resisting sleep! The most she slept at a nap was 20 mama is a little tired tonight!

Why is it so HOT here in the Inland Empire!!!???
Thanks for stopping by!

2 Months Old...

I just LOVE that freakin smile!!!!
She is almost laughing!!!

Today marked little Breanna's 2 month mark, it also meant IMMUNIZATION SHOTS! OMG...I think I cried more than her. Well not really, I am exaggerating a baby screamed! I never heard her scream like that, she turned purple in the face. I felt so helpless, I couldn't do anything but hold her little arms down as hostage. =(

I thought I would be tough and would be able to handle it...does that mean that I am softy? Oh well...then let it be. I just hope that doesn't carry on into her childhood, like when she cries because she is being punished.

Anyway, other than that, she is doing extremely well. She is now 10lbs 15oz. and 22 inches long. She is doing great, smiling, cooing, all the stuff she should be doing at her age. Anyday now I am waiting for a giggle and then I will be waiting for one of those big ole' GUT belly laughs! She is such a joy to my life and makes my day. She may get mommy tired, but that is competely okay!

Thanks for stopping by!

Breanna already 1 month old!!!

I promise this is my child!
Beautiful big eyes!
Instructions not included is the truth!!!

Me and Bre

Wow! One month has gone by already....

It has been a very challenging but oh so beautiful time in my life. Baby Breanna is doing well, growing everyday! She is beginning now to make little cooing noises, at least trying to and she is trying to be grown already holding her head up being nosy! She is so funny...she smiles ALL the time.
What's even better is the fact that she is getting MORE sleep which means mommy and daddy are getting more sleep! YEAH!

So just wanted to update my readers...and post a few new pics. Enjoy! And thanks for stopping by!

Guess who I saw today?

Well...I was out minding my own business...doing some shopping at Scrappin Good Times in San Dimas, and who rolls in? Miss Michelle Hill! Okay so I am like, dang, I don't wanna come off stalker like or papparazi'ish! How do I just say hi!? So while she walked in I was still browsing and still thinking of how to say hi! Oh yeah..I wasn't too sure if it was her initially, but that voice! I remember her voice! Had to be her! This past March, I did one of her cute make & takes, for free and was worth it, really cute! She used a lot of Lil Davis stuff. I guess I should download it to my gallery...anyway..back to the situation at hand!

So anyway, I proceed to check out and she is back at the die cutting area making kits or I ask the lady checking me out: "Is that Michelle HIll?" and she was like, "Yeah." So by this time, Miss Hill had walked back up my way and I was like forget...I said, "Umm excuse me, Miss Hill?" LOL! I was kinda being funny...she looked at me and I told her that I wasn't trying to come across all funky but really just wanted to say hello! She was really cool, evem gave me a hug! I believe in April I went to a rubberstamp / scrapbook expo in Pomona, and a vendor, Freckle Friends (which are awesome by the way), were selling one of her album kits. It was really cute. So I bought it...and finally uploaded it into my gallery just now! Don't ask me why it took me to meet up with her again to remind me to upload it!
Anyway, just wanted to share...she was really cool people, really laid back. But she was like that in the class, down to earth.

Only a few of the pics out of the book...

Mary J Blige Concert

Yesterday me and Reg attended our first concert! YES! Mary J Blige! And while you are asking yourself if I just wrote our first concert....YES it was our first concert! Mary was performing at San Manuel Indian Casino (was our first time up there too). She sang for a good 2 hours....I was up on my feet most of the time, shouting out the words to her greatest songs! Oh it was fun, we had a blast! The concert was trouble, no fights, NO DRAMA! All fun!
Today was pretty much my first day getting all dressed up to go have some fun with just me and hubby since Baby Bre came! It was really nice to get out of the house to be honest. I am so blessed that my mom babysat for us while mommy and daddy were out having a good time.
Only bummy part is that I had to check my camera in...heck I didn't know I couldn't take my camera in! Heck! The security guard darn near bumrushed me telling me NO CAMERA's aloud...this was AFTER I picked my camera up from the little check in area...I thought it was only no photography in the concert. You know I am a scrapbooker, its late, I am trying to get in some photos....So I take a pic of Reg in the escalator and another one of the poster advertising Marys concert...and this dude acts like I commited a criminal act! Lord! Anyway...I had a good time regardless if I got good pics or not. I still have my tickets so I can scrap those! =)

Happy Birthday TO ME!!!!

July 7th, 2007, 7/7/07...anyway you want to look at it, its a lucky day!

I feel like the luckiest woman on earth! I have THE best birthday gift laying now beside me instead of in me.

Some of you may already know but Miss Breanna Nichole made her entrance into the world June 27th, 2007 at 6:01 am, 6lbs and one oz. She came out shouting at the top of her lungs as I assumed she would. She is my little princess, and wouldn't trade her for the world.

When she came out, all I could remember is me crying, "My baby...!" Such a touching moment and life changing moment for me. I realized now I have begun a new chapter in my life as I am almost tearing up just thinking about it all over again.

Do you ever just sit back and think how awesome and complex producing life is? It is unexplainable....

Thank you for everyone wishing me great blessings and checking in with me. Being a new parent for the first time DEFINATELY has its challenges! Wow....yes indeed. I have had the baby blues which is why it has taken me a while to get on and finally post! I think I may finally be getting out of my rut and just going in full force and keeping my head up. I will be okay! WE will be okay! I have a loving supporting husband and FAMILY! Not sure what I would do without either!

Again, truly blessed.

Here are a few pics, you know I have more....just haven't downloaded them yet. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Due Date..Has Come & Gone...


Well I have a little under 2 hours left in the day, and we aren't having any action over here! Hello in there litle baby? I think she is really taking her time....and not really thinking about me! =(

Well I guess I can just look at it in a different perspective...I have waited 40 weeks, I guess I can wait one more. If nothing all week, we will be induced Sunday (next week) at 3:00pm on the dot. So if nothing else I can look forward to that. I was quite active today, went to the store, me and Reg went to Breakfast, visited his dad, visited my mom, and did some I dunno!

It's just a matter of having patience? LOL!
Stay tuned!

Saturday, June 23, 2007

Tomorrow is the Day!

Well tomorow will be the 24th, my given due date, but for some reason, I don't think it is happening! I think Breanna Nichole will make her appearance when she is good and ready! I know, I know, I want her to come as much as many of my family and friends!

Had a Dr. appointment yesterday and he stated that I am almost there! Try and stay active and busy. So, today, I made sure my hospital bag was packed and I went to the bank, went and printed up some pics at CVS and even scrapped some layouts! I was surprised at all I did. Now I am just chillin with my feet up cause you know they are swollen watching ETV (Entertainment Television).

So anyway...stay tuned!

Revisiting LOL vs. LOLI!


Tuesday, 04 July 2006
You are probably wondering what the heck is a LOLI!?

Well I actually just thought about this....when people type "LOL"....who really Laughs Out Loud?! I mean be honest....if you did you would probably frighten everyone around you, heck you might even frighten yourself!!!

LOL started along time ago when chat rooms were really active in the what, early-mid 90's? There are so many acronyms its kinda humorous...LOLI!

What about ROTF? "Rolling On The Floor" are we really rolling on the floor? It was so funny we just fell out our chair, collapsed and did a stop, drop, and roll? LOL!!! (really, I did have to laugh at that one!).

Okay here is another one....ROTFLMAO..?? Does anyone ever Roll On The Floor Laughin' their A&% Off? Well for me I have never laughed that hard where it drops me to my knees on the computer!

Don't get me wrong...their has been times where I am laughing so hard on the inside it I hearby begin a new Acronym...LOLI LOL means: "Laughing Out Loud Inside!!" HA HAHAAA!! I am still LOLI'ing...just because its so true and funny at the same time!
Hope you had a LOLI reading!
Have a great day and really try LOL today!

Adventures of the New Ice Cream Maker!

Reggies first Father's Day gift. Am I nice or what? Well my husband has this thing about ice cream! I asked him what he wanted for Father's Day and he stated an ice cream maker, so an ice cream maker it was!
And I heard pregnant women are the ice cream eaters! Yeah right! Well above, I took a picture of this HUGE concoction he made prior to getting the maker. It contained the following: Vanilla Ice Crea, Chocolate topping, Caramel topping, strawberries, banannas, and whip cream to top it off! He had this 2 nights in a row...and it was like 10ish.
So the top picture shows his nice new ice cream maker...he made his first batch last night about 10 something last night! Mind you he had to get up for work the next morning! So it had to spin for like 4 minutes and I think he got impatient and stopped it to early, eager to taste his creation....cause he "thought it was done!" So anyway...after removing the ice cream from the maker he put it in the freezer. It is supposed to freeze for at least an hour I think...can you believe he set his alarm clock to wake back up and taste it! LOL!
Anyway, he wasn't happy with the first batch so guess what...we got a 2nd batch tonight..The taste was good, but the texture wasn't quite right. But I told him he needs to be patient! So anyway...2nd batch...the maker started making all kinds of noise! I was like REGGIE!!!! Come check your ice cream! He wants to make a 3rd batch and is on his way to the store to get more ice!!!! It is 10:17pm!!!! HELLO!? LOL!! IS he serious or what. I told him to look at his troubleshooting manual and read the directions again! Come to find out was not doing a few things....leave it up to men to skip directions and try and take short cuts!
Well at least he loves his gift! I didn't go wrong! LOL!
Wish him luck! LOL!

I'm telling you...I was so overwhelmed I seriously almost started crying. But this just goes to show you how BLESSED I am. How blessed I am to be loved by so many family members and friends. And if you are reading this blog, and contributed to this STUFF....another BIG thanks from the bottom of my heart! I'm telling you, her room is completely packed! She will be the cleanest baby with all the baby cleaning stuff, shampoos and baby gel stuff, you know what I am talkin about. If you ever see Breanna dirty, please smack me! LOL!

Yes! More time has passed...

Okay, yes, I admit...there has been a MAJOR gap in between my last post! YES IT SAYS SEPTEMBER! Well I do have a good excuse! I am due as in NOW for my baby girl to come into this world. Not only that, I have kinda abandonned my blog here and I don't know why! I am involved in so many other things, apart of this group, that group and it gets overwhelming at times.

The main reason I started this blog was for family to keep up with me and what is goin on with me and my life. So, today, I vow to try better at keeping this darn thing updated.

I am expecting Breanna Nichole to join us in our household soon...she is due next Sunday, but she seems to be acting a little stubborn! Hopefully she will cooperate soon and come on and stop playing!

Other than that...summer is around the corner and it is HOT already. I know its nothing like what it is about to be...I am home all day and what does that mean? The air is running all day. I refuse to sweat in my own house. No way Jose!

Well this is my makeup post...I will come back soon...promise!
