Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Well, it's been a while!
What has happened in my life since my last post?
-I had a birthday, 28 years young, or old, depending on the day.
-I'm half way done with my Christmas shopping.
-I decided to finally get an idea for a scrap book for my son.
-I am so looking forward to have my Thanksgiving break.
-I will be going to book our Disney trip for next year soon, so I've been thinking about that.
-We went to the zoo as a family. Didn't take any pics though since we all had a cold.
-Went out to watch a local band and partied it up with the girls.
-Now I'm deaf in my right ear because of the band!
-I am also now anticipating my next blog. It will consist of our dress up days for Homecoming week.
-We will be going camping this weekend for Halloween. Can't wait! Will take pics!

Tell next time, take care!

Why Does He Have to Grow Up?

So, I've been a ball of emotion lately with my son growing up.
I looked at some of his baby pictures yesterday, and cried.
Even though my son has long been out of his crib/toddler bed, it has been stashed in our extra room along with some ride-on toys that he still rides, but is essentially too big for now.
So up they went into the attic, but not before he kissed them goodbye.... *Sniff* I cried some more.
Here are some pics of my son over the past year and a half:

Ok, I think that is enough picture overload.
But look at how much he has changed. He doesn't have the chubby little baby face anymore.
Needless to say, this past summer alone he grew one size in clothing and 2 sizes in shoes.
My little man!

Stop the Insanity!

I can't control myself!
There must be a 12 step program!

I just bought another necklace. Through reading one of my follower's blogs, The Juici Life, I came across this etsy shop called Cuppy Cake. All of the jewelry is made from recycled cans! How ingenious! I bought one that looks like this except made from a cherry coke can.

How cute is that?
And don't forget about the giveaway I am wishing to win so I can have a family keepsake necklace.
The giveaway is sponsored by Lee la la. The necklace is made by a jewelry artist, Michelle. Her etsy shop is called Silver Wren, where you can view all of her beautiful creations.

I must STOP!
