About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Not Me! Monday

It's Monday, and that means another installment of Not Me! Monday, a brutally honest confession of things that I most definitely did not do over the last week.

Even though I had a terrible cold and runny nose, I did not use my shirt to wipe my nose while Aleck was breastfeeding. That would just be too gross.

Tom and I watched Iron Man the other night, which was an awesome movie. At the beginning of the movie, the main character, Tony Stark, is kidnapped and escapes after being held captive for 3 months. When he gets home, the first thing he wants is a cheeseburger. For the rest of the movie, all I could think of was a cheeseburger, but I did not go to McDonald's at 10:15 p.m. to get a cheeseburger and fries. I also did not have chicken tortilla soup for breakfast the following morning. I am so glad that this pregnancy is not causing some intense food cravings.

Aleck does not enjoy diaper changes, but I did not bribe him by showing him my blackberry cell phone and tell him he can play with my phone if he will be still for a diaper change. I am the adult, and I would never reduce myself to bribery to get my child to do what I want him to do.

I did not absentmindedly call Aleck by the name of my deceased cat, Jake. Jake has been gone for almost 3 years. How weird would that be?

What weird and crazy things did you not do this week?

I love that you hit McDonalds! That is great! What else can you do when a craving hits? Answer it!

Wow, Jake has been gone three years??? That means I've known you three years!! You are a beautiful friend, woman, and mom to me!! Love ya!!

You mean Mom's can't bribe? I once handed Connor a $300 watch to keep him still. Hmmm...haven't tried that in awhile, maybe it would help!

hmpf..Bribing, I think that is my middle name lately! I bribe Preston with smarties sweet tarts as of late to do lots of things! Don't feel guilty, especially since you are pregnant!
I can't believe Jake has been gone 3 years! He was such a sweet cat.
