I'm not here anymore!

I'm HERE!!!!

Please be patient as I figure things out over there!


In the meantime...

If you want a chance to win a 3 pack of custom AIO diapers from Cara at Bubbles & Bows Boutique, head over here!

Stay tuned...

For some changes...

Zach's going to be getting me my own domain for this blog and my others, so I can do a bit more advertising and bring some money, money, money... haha :)

I think, by Saturday, everything should be finalized ;-)


Not for the faint of heart...

You can't make this stuff up, as my friend, Angela, would say....

We were running late, of course, to get out the door to the bible study at church. K gets very still. Says, "maaaaaaamaaaa" and then throws up ....not only that, he conveniently catches it in his hands....

Then, looks at his sweet, precious brother...


he wiped it on B's head....


See ya next week bible study...


The rest of the weekend....

Was just as crazy, busy and fun :)

Let's see, Sunday was church (which started with us screaming at Benjamin the whole way there so he'd stay awake ...so he'd sleep through church, haha! It worked!) And then we grilled out for dinner Sunday night.

Today, we packed up and headed to The Purple Cow Dairy & Zoo. We weren't really sure what we were going to see upon arriving, but, we headed on anyway!

We ate lunch there and then headed 'out back' to see the animals - every thing from dogs, to goats, to kangaroos (that were not dead, just simply hot & tired, haha), to camels and peacocks! It was quite...interesting! :)

Then we headed back in to get some yummy ice cream!

After stuffing ourselves to the brim, it was time to head home to NC. We got in the van and Benjamin was asleep before long. Keaton had lots to "talk" about before finally falling asleep. Then it was Zach's turn. I had to (wo)man the van and stay awake. It was hard, but Zach deserved the nap - as I took Benedryl the past two nights to sleep and didn't really realize he woke up with the boys at 530 in the morning, well, I KNEW he did, but I didn't KNOW he did...good ol Benedryl! ;-)

We got home, unloaded the van and let the boys have some freedom....before loading them back up, heading to our old apartment to get a van load (only a handful on things remain! whew!) and then to get yummy Mexican for dinner (no one wants to cook after driving all day!) The boys were super tired, but in all, did a great job being "patient" while we waited and ate.

So, now, pictures :) From the whole weekend....

Benjamin could really care less about the animals....

Keaton could care less too, rocks are more exciting!

The Benjamin Paparazzi

They had a bunch of benches out front, Keaton had to try them all out :)

Yummy ice cream!

Me: "Look, Keaton! Baby Goats"
Keaton: "Whatever, mom, look rocks..."

I'd never seen a real peacock (that I know of) I was amazed!

We knew he was ok...see below

See... :)

What was he so excited over? dogs...
(Detour back to Zach's parents house...) Huge bubbles!
Pitiful Benjamin...

16 months apart...about 5 inches apart...

My sweet boy!

Keaton on the John Deere stool (he LOVES John Deere....that's my boy!)


What a weekend....

...and it's only 730pm, Saturday night!

Yesterday afternoon, Zach's parents got into town and we all went to dinner at O'Charley's (YUM, 3 cheese bacon burger, drool....)

Then we rushed home, got the boys in bed and I went to Kohl's and did some shopping! I did GREAT!

I spent about $24 and got about $170 worth of stuff!

I bought -
two rugs for our kitchen (normally 24.99, sale price $8.47)
a super cute shirt (normally $30, sale $14.99)
a black flowy skirt (normally $34, sale $19.99)
a bathing suit top (I already had a matching bottom, haha!) (normally, $38, sale $21.99)
and some swim trunks for Keaton (normally $16, sale $8)

I had $5 in Kohl's Cash and a $50 gift card. On top of that, for every $50 you spent, you got $10 in Kohl's Cash back. So, I paid $24 and some change and then got $10 back in Kohl's Cash!


I got home and we packed up and went to sleep as we knew morning was coming all too early...

...sure enough, 5:45am, we hear noises from Keaton's room!

I jump in the shower, Zach gets the boys and gives Benjamin a bottle and then, finished packing and by 640am, we were on the road!

We got to Roanoke around 9:30am and went to visit Great-Grandma Connie (who Keaton called Kiki and Con the whole way there) :)

Then we met my mom at Macado's for lunch.

Afterwards, we headed out to her house for a short visit and then down to Collinsville to Zach's parents for the remainder of the weekend.

We ordered pizza, got the boys bathed and in bed.


I took benedryl about an hour ago and the fact that I'm still typing (although typing 'ago' like 'awwgo') says a lot. However, I will pass out the second I lay down, or atleast I hope so as I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night!

more of the weekend to come....later....after it happens ;-)
