Ergo Baby Carrier Giveway by The Ethertons!

The Ethertons have a great giveaway going for an Ergo Baby Carrier!

It looks like it would be a great thing to have! It holds your child up to 40lbs. note Ergo recommends 40lbs but it has been tested up to 90 lbs. You will need an extra insert for babies under 4 months old.
you can wear your baby on your front or on your back. It is easy to use and very convenient. It is also easy to store. It doesn't take up a lot of space. It could easily fit in a diaper bag when not in use.

My favorite thing is that it comes with a hood. This is a sleeping hood to keep it darker around baby and protect baby while he or she is sleeping. I am sure it also helps protect babies when its raining if your say trying to get from the store to your car and from the sun if you are outdoors for an extended period.

This one has to be my favorite!
So make sure you head over to The Ethertons and enter!

I always love getting new followers and finding new blogs to follow!
Happy Friday!!!

5 Question Friday!

It's FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!and you know what that means...Another 5 Question Friday brought to you by My Little Life

Rules for Five Question Friday: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then c'mon back to link up! If it floats your boat, you can even grab the blog hop code! I would love it if you'd link back to me, Mama M., but that's not a requirement! ;)

If you don't have a blog, but want to play along...feel free to answer the questions in the comments of my blog, or any blog along the way!

1. Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet? I want to start some kind of crafty business! I love doing any kind of crafts and I'd love to make money off of them. I also want to do it so I can continue to stay home with the kiddos but still make money to contribute to our house!

2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on? Supplies to make anything crafty! Thats something I don't normally just go out and buy!

3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child? The merry go round! I don't think they really even put those on playgrounds anymore though!

4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?I'm not a big breakfast person at all! I guess I'd have to say I like a good combo of both. If I eat breakfast its either cereal or a steak biscuit but I do like donuts when I get to have them!

5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy? Boy how I'd love to be a neat freak but I'm far from it! I guess you could say I'm a wannabe neat freak stuck in a messy bessy mom's body. The majority of the mess I'm surrounded by is kid stuff and clothes. Those are both things that no one in our house lacks!

So there you have it! My five question Friday!
So glad today is Friday and that we have a long weekend! Looking forward to the Children's Day Festival  on Saturday and Shrek 4 on Monday!

Thursday Five!

It's Thursday Five..Where we get to look back on our week and and come up with 5 things that have made us..






Whatever you want..just no bad stuff..
Some weeks are harder..and we might have to dig deeper..but I guarantee you will find 5 things!
*To play..write your Thursday Five post..then come back here and link up*

So here's my 5:
1. My daughter went yesterday to test to get into a new private Christian school and I am so grateful that I am able to give her that opportunity! She is so bright and beautiful and I want her to be in a school with a great Christian environment that will challenge her mentally and let her grow spiritually!
2. It makes me happy to hear that Owen is learning new words. All of a sudden, he's starting to say more and more words. Just within the last week he's learned Night Night, stinky and cheese! He's such a talker and I can't wait to see what he'll learn to say next or to be able actually understand everything he says!
3. I am excited that Olivia has a end of the year performance and graduation tonight. I always love seeing her perform and this year I get the added bonus of her graduating from 5K!
4. I'm looking forward to our three day weekend. I can't wait to take the kids to the Children's Day Festival with Spoleto! I think they will enjoy it! I know Olivia went a couple of years ago and had a blast! We also have plans to go see the new Shrek movie on Mon. since Liv doesn't have school! I think I'm more excited that she is!
5. I'm just excited to have my computer back. I was without it for 5 months. Can you believe it?  I certainly can't! I don't know how I ever went that long without being able to facebook, blog or check my emails whenever I wanted. I actually had to plan those things in my day and I'm excited that I don't have to plan it anymore. I can just do it!

There's my Thursday Five. What's yours?
Happy Thursday!!!!

W is for Wednesday and...


So each week on Wednesday I've decided I'm going to give you "W is for Wednesday and..." What comes after the "and" will change every week and there will be a question that relates! I'd love to see everyone join in and hear how you'd answer the question. If you want, you can copy and paste into your own blog or you can leave it as a comment! Hope everyone's having a Wonderful Wednesday!

This week I choose "W is for Wednesday and Words"

If you could pick 3 "words" to describe yourself, what would they be and why?

1. Mommy- I know thats obvious but I put it because it makes me who I am! When I was younger, I never wanted kids! I wanted to focus on myself and my career but all that changed when I had Noodle. She has made me a better person. Then I had Nugget and I realized that being a mommy is what I'm supposed to be! I love the rewards that come with being a mom! I get to watch my two beauiful children grow up and experience new things everyday. Being a mom means that I am shaping the future with my children. I just hope that I can shape them into well- mannered, loving children who go on to be great sucessful adults!

2. Competitive- I never really thought of myself as competetive until recently. I want to be the best in all that I do. I guess that's also a little bit of perfectionism coming out in me too! While playing Wii the other day with my husband, we were just doing a 3 pointer contest and I so badly want to beat him! I so badly wanted to get a perfect score! I got pure joy when I did beat him but I've yet to get a perfect score. Even though for the next two days, everytime Nugget went down for a nap, I certainly tried too!

3.Unorganized- Completely! I wish that I wasn't but I am! Always have been! Well I guess its more of an Organized Chaos! I know where things are but I'm the only one! I want to be organized so that everything has its place and that I'm not the only one that knows where that place is! Its something that I'm working on!

I look forward to hearing what three words you think describe yourself.
Come back next week to see what else "W" is for!

Top Two (Early) Tuesday

It's that time...time for

a little early!

Top 2 Tuesday is brought to you by The Undomestic Momma.

This weeks its Top 2 Dates.

1. I would have to say my most favorite was mine and Frank's first date. It wasn't necessarily what we did but what it was the beginning of- our life together.  Our first date had to be the best date I've ever been on because we were both just so comfortable with each other. It wasn't awkward like most first date. There were no awkward silences, no . We talked about everything like we'd known each other forever. We went to dinner at the Mustard Seed. I love that place. It has such a great quaint romantic atmosphere at night! After dinner, we went for a walk on the Battery, where we continued to talk. We ended up holding hands was we strolled along. After leaving the Battery, we stopped by his mom's house (she wasn't here of course) so he could take care of some business (romantic, right?). While he was in the bathroom, I looked at all the pictures his mom had up of him. Most of them were from when he was in high school. He was such a dork but hey, what can I say? He's my dork now and I love him! When he came out, he kind of caught me of guard by walking up behind me. He wrapped his arms around me and kind of rested his chin on my shoulder while I continued looking at the pictures. It was at that moment that I knew he was different. I knew I wanted to see him again to see where it would go. Little did I know 5 years later that we'd be married and he'd be the wonderful stepdad to Olivia and dad to Owen! He took me home afte that and walked me to the door. We said our good-byes and when he went in for the kiss, I cheeked him! A girl never kisses on the first date! We were pretty much inseperable after that!

2.Hmmm...that's a hard one! I'm going to consider our honerymoon as one very long date making it my second favorite! With me having Olivia already when I met Frank, we didn't really get a whole bunch of just "me and Frank" time. I mean we did but our honeymoon was the first time we'd gone away together, just us, for more than a night. We went on a cruise to Key West and Cozumel. In Key West, we were able to just walk the streets, shop, and leisurely eat! It was so nice. On the ship, we were able to sleep when we wanted and eat when we wanted. It was nice to just BE with Frank! When I'm with him, we don't necessarily have to do anything. We just like to BE together! In Cozumel, we went on excursion in MiniJeeps to go snorkeling! Although I despise snorkeling, I enjoyed the MiniJeep ride with Frank. It was so much fun taking in the beautiful scenery and laughing at our MiniJeep that scared the couple behind us evertime it backfired! It was so hard to come back!

Beautiful Yellow!

So I've decided to participate in this weeks photo contest over at iheartfaces
This week's theme is "Yellow" It took me a while to find a picture with yellow. Yellow isn't necessarily one of my favorite colors. My kids don't wear yellow, I don't wear yellow. The closest thing to yellow in my pictures in Nugget's hair and at this point, that's evern more white that yellow! But after searching, I found a great picture that fits the "Yellow" theme!

My Noodle flower! She's bright, beautiful and most importantly YELLOW! This is from the Flowertown Festival this part March! I just love it and hope you will too!

Seems to be a Manic Monday!

I don't know what's going on but it's early and today's already been rather crazy.
I should have known when I went in to get Noodle up for school and she didn't budge that it was going to be a great day. Of course by "great" I'm totally being sarcastic. How come no one has developed a font specifically used for sarcasm. Anyway, when she finally woke up, she cried over what I picked for her to wear, didn't want anything but PB&J out of all the things I offered to put in her lunch and then she started to cry. The crying didn't stop either. She cried over brushing her teeth, cried that she didn't want to go to school, cried because she was too tired, cried when I told her she had to go to school, cried when I told her she didn't get to spend the night with M&B if she didn't go to school, cried when I asked her to change her shirt because the one she finally put on was dirty. I finally just sent her to her room with the intent of just letting her stay home. With all the crying, I assumed she had a long and exhausting weekend over at her dad's, which isn't unusual. After calming down she came the the top of the stairs, "Mommy, do I get to spend the night with M&B tonight?" Let the water works begin AGAIN! I had already told her no school, no M&B. It wasn't too late for her to make it school so she finished getting ready and we headed to school.
Surprisely we actually made it on time and she was happy when she finally got out of the car. I think it's because she knew since she was going to school she'd get to spend the night with M&B(her great grandparents).
Well, it didn't get any better from there. As soon as I pulled back out onto the main road, Nugget started screaming! Not him too! And then after half the ride home, he just stopped! But unfortunately it didn't end there. Once inside the house, he started again. He cried until I got breakfast fixed, cried when I wouldn't let him hold my phone, cried when I changed his diaper and as I sit here and type this, he's in his crib crying! It's naptime for him and for the last three day, Nugget and naptime just don't mix. What happened to my good little sleeper who went down at 10 and slept until at least 1? Where did he go? I want him back. This napping for an hour thing is not my friend. I can't get anything done! Naptime was when I took the time to straighten up the mess he made with his toys or to do some laundry or just catch my breath. No nap means no downtime. I need the downtime!
All the craziness and I almost forgot that today is the last Monday of the school year! Well, techinically it is. Next Monday is Memorial Day so Nood doesn't have school but she does have it Tues.-Thursday! I'm super excited and ready for summer. Nugget's big enough to take to the beach, Noodle's going to a few camps, and it'll be nice to have both kids able to spend time together. I am so thankful that my children love to be with each other! I know it surprising. The whole time I was pregnant with Nugget I just knew Noodle was going to hate him when he got here but she doesn't. She's like a second mommy for him. If she wakes up before he does, she goes and gets him out of bed. She lets him climb all over her when she's on the floor. Cute part is that we can tell Nuuget loves her too! He gets so excited when she walks in the room. When we go to pick her up in the afternoon, as soon as they open the door to put Liv in the car, he yelling Hey at her and giggling. It so cute. I just hope that their relationship stays a good one and that as they grow, their relationship grows closer!
I think that's enough for now. I think I'm pretty much done with the rambling.
Hoping that this Manic Monday will turn into something much less manic!
Oh, once last thing but definitely not the least important! Happy 15 Months to Nugg! I can't believe he's that old already. They grow up too fast!

Getting to Know you, well actually Me!

Thanks to Keely over at MannLand5, I've discovered "Getting to Know You"! I'm pretty new to blogging and am always looking for new things to write about so this is a great thing to start.

1. Do you have a fetish?
I have a flip flop/shoes in general fetish! I just can't get enough of them. After having each baby, my feet grew and I was so sad when I had to get rid of all my fabulous shoes. Now I'm in the process of replenishing them which isn't as easy since my feet got wider and it's hard to find shoes that are cute and comfortable. That's where the flip flop fetish comes in handy because they are easy to find!!

2. Do you sing in the shower? Not only do I sing in the shower but I sing in the car, in the living room, to my babies. For that matter I'm always humming and am known to burst out in song whenever it hits me!

3. Who was your first crush? I did chased this boy Michael around the playground when I was in five year old kindergarten so I guess he would be my first crush! If not him, then it would definitely have to be Uncle Jesse on Full House! Have Mercy!!! I was so in love with him in first grade! Or it could have been Donnie from New Kids on the Block. I had his doll. His face was on my pillow! I was so in love with him too!

4. What do you think is the best manly trait a guy could have?
Being a great support physically, emotionally and financially! A man who can provide for his family and at the same time give them all the love and attention they need is a great man! My husband is a great man!

5. Do you sleep naked?
I have two kids one of whom could waltz in the room anytime she wanted so no I don't sleep naked. Well not totally anyway!

6. What do you do when (you think) no one is looking? I almost always readjust my pants. I feel like I'm constanly pulling them up or straightening them out and I hate doing it when anyones looking. It's just not appropriate!

7. What's the first thing you do when you go online?
Sadly its check Facebook followed by checking my emails then blogging.

8. Summer is.....?
wonderful! I love the summer! I love going to the beach, spending extra time with Livi since she's out of school, taking her to Summer Camps, and taking the kids on mini  day vacays.

It's another 5 Question Friday!!!

It's FRIDAY!!!!!!!and you know what that means...Mama M has brought me and all you another 5 Question Friday. If you want to participate just copy the questions and answer them to your own blog!

1. Do you have an iPhone and, if so, how do you get apps and what are your favorites? I do not have an iPhone nor do I know if I want one. I've seen how all the people I know that have one are slightly addicted and I don't know if I want to become that! Do you really need to be able to do internet, facebook, twitter and what not all day everyday from anywhere? I don't really think so!

2. What is your fondest memory of K-3rd grade? Playing house and barbies! I remember specifically pretending with my friends that we were all the people from Full House too. I loved that show back then!

3. What makes you cringe at the thought of touching? any soggy food completely grosses me out. Owen's really bad a spitting out his food or sucking on a Graham cracker until is icky! GROSS!

4. If you could have any celebrity show up on your doorstep who would it be and why?
Ellen DeGeneres. I just love her show. She's so funny! If she's showing up on my doorstep that probably means she's got something great to give me too which is a bonus! She's always surprising people on their doorsteps with something that will help them out whether it be money or a new car!

5. What would you say is your best physical feature? Probably my eyes. I get lots of compliments on how pretty and blue they are. I guess that's a good best feature to have since no matter how fat I get, my eyes will never change!

I've come to realize....

I’ve come to realize that my body image is a tad dismorphic. I'm probably more comfortable with myself than I should be. I think it's because I swear I don't look as fat in the mirror as I do when I see myself in pictures. I'm come to accept that I've had two babies and weigh much more than I used to and m body shape will most likely never go back to what is what pre-baby. I am ok with that today!

I’ve come to realize that my job is being the best mother I can be to my two wonderful children and that's the more important job I could have. I may not make any money but I get so much more out of staying at home with them and it's worth more than any money I could earn. My children are my life, without them I don't know what I would do and I know that I would not be the person I am today.
I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving I am doing one of my least favorite things. I have always said that one day I want to have enough money so that I can pay someone to drive me around. I do not like to drive. However, I do enjoy blaring the radio and singing at the top of my lungs like I'm the best singer in the world and I can't do that if I'm not driving!
I’ve come to realize that I need more "me" time. I can't remember the last time I did anything for myself. I want to be able to do whatever I want for just one day ever now and them so I don't get burnt out on always doing everything for everyone else.
I’ve come to realize that I have lost the days of irresponsibility. They will never be found again! I guess I'm ok with it since growing up and becoming responsible is part of life! However growing up and being responsible are two different things because I sure do know a bunch of people who are responsible but definitely aren't grown up!
I’ve come to realize that I hate when I ask a certain someone to do something and he takes so long to get to it that I might as well have done it myself. Well, actually I normally do end up doing it. Take today for example: Certain someone was playing his video game when I asked him to get Olivia's shower ready. I was in the middle of cooking dinner but he surely did take 20 minutes to pause the game and go start her shower. Then while the kids and I were making dinner, he was still playing his game. I asked him to get Olivia some more food since I had just sat down and he just ignored me completely! I ended up doing it anyway!
I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk someone must be keeping both my children so that Frank and I could go out. It also means that I drank quicker than Frank because he always seems to get drunk before I do then I have to be the "responsible one."
I’ve come to realize that money doesn't last long. As soo as we get it, we have to turn around and pay bills. Oh well!
I’ve come to realize that certain people will never change no matter how much you hope that they will. I've grown up and put the days full of high schoolish drama behind me but most people I know have not! I've also come to realize that it's really hard to find those people that will be great longtime friends.
I’ve come to realize that I’ll always remember the day of the Sofa Super Store fire..June 17, 2007. Frank and I were right by there when it started and we had no idea how bad it would turn out! We lost 9 brave firefighters that night. My dad is a firefighter and he was there that night. He was there to pull out those men who lost their lives trying to save others. I am thankful that he was there to help but even more thankful that he made it out alive!
I’ve come to realize that my sibling(s) and I are not as close as we should be. My sister, Heather, recently moved far away and my half sister, Kellen, I just don't see enough. Heather and I had a close relationship until she moved away and one day, I hope that it can be as close as it was before the move. Kellen has grown into a little teenager with a witty sense of humor and a love for anything Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato. She even has fan pages for them that she runs!
I’ve come to realize that my mom and I will always have our ups and downs but we'll always be there for each other. She loves me and I love her, isn't that what's most important in the end anyway?
I’ve come to realize that my cell phone needs to be upgraded to something way more hi-tech and fancy! I also feel lost without it!
I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning, I had only been asleep for 5 hours which is not enough for me to function on. I also realized that when I woke up this morning that Olivia only has 8 more days of school which mean only 8 more days of waking up early! I am thankful both of my kiddos like to sleep in when they can! 
I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep, I was sucked into the computer for way too long! We just got our computer back fixed after it breaking in January. Do you know how hard it is to not be able to just get on and check your email real quick when you want? I was lost with it out too! 
I’ve come to realize that right now I am exhausted after a long day with very little sleep, frustrated with my husband but excited to see the Grey's Anatomy finale!
I’ve come to realize that my dad is being the best dad he knows how to be. Its not the best but he's trying! I know one day he learn how to be the dad I've always hoped he would be. However I do appreciate him for being a firefighter for so long and am thankful that nothing bad ever happened to him!
I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook, I spend way to much time on it! It's so easy to get sucked in looking at what everyone is up to or the latest picture they've added. Being without a computer at home for so long though has made it a little easier for me to not spend so much time on it!
I’ve come to realize that today is one week before my baby girl graduates from kindergarten. Next year, Livi will be in first grade and I can hardly believe it. She's grown up too fast into a beautiful and smart little girl! Besides, I'm not old enough to have a child going into first grade!
I’ve come to realize that tomorrow is Friday! I like Fridays! 
I’ve come to realize that I really want to have our house on the market and sold quickly so that we can get a house with a yard. This is something we have been working on but we suffer from TMSS (Too Much Stuff Syndrome) We've gotten rid of so much already but it surely feels like its a never ended process!
I’ve come to realize that the person mostly likely to repost this is probably no one. I know I only have 3 followers but I enjoy blogging even if no one reads it! 
I’ve come to realize that life is always full of the unexpected. From one day to the next, I never know what will happen or what funny thing Olivia say or Owen will do! 
I’ve come to realize that this weekend should be fun. Owen and I have Josh's first birthday party to go to and I want to make some floor pillows for the kids playroom!
I’ve realized the best music to listen to when I am upset is Boyz II Men. I know it's totally old school but I love me some Boyz II Men. "Although we've come to the end of the road, still I cant let go. Its unnatural. You belong to me, I belong to you"
I've come to realize that my friends, my true friends, are few! It's so hard to
find real friends that won't talk about you behind your bad, get offended by your advice or act like their still in high school! With real friends, you can go months without talking or seeing each other but then pick right up where you left off like no time has passed at all! I am grateful for the few true friends I have!

I’ve come to realize that this year has gone by way to fast! Owen turned 1, learnen to walk and has become an adventuresome mischief maker. Olivia is graduating from 5 year old kindergarten, learned to tie her shoe in a day and has become a great reader!
I’ve come to realize that my husband is my best friend and one of the loves of my life (the other two are Olivia and Owen). Even though we have our ups and downs, I know he loves me like no one else does. He's always there for me and he encourages me in all that I do. He's a great stepdad to my daughter, a wonderful father to our son and a understanding supporter who lets me be lucky enough to stay home with the kids!
I’ve come to realize that maybe I should get a paying job outside of the house so that I can meet other people that aren't necessarily moms and start contributing to the household!
I’ve come to realize that I love the life that I have. A wonderful husband, two beautiful children, a house that we can call our own, and the means to keep it! What else could I ask for!
I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand why some people worry about all the petty stuff. There's so much more to life than the petty stuff to worry about.  
I’ve come to realize my past has made me who I am and I wouldn't change one part of it!
I’ve come to realize that parties that I attend are all childrens birthday parties. Wild crazy drunken parties are a thing of the past but I'm ok with that!
I’ve come to realize that my life is full of love, support, and blessing..lots of blessings!

5 Question Friday!

Another 5 question Friday brought to you by Mama M. If you want to join in, just copy, paste and answer in your blog! If you don't have a blog you can answer them in a comment!

1. Take your night, girls night out, or night out alone? Date night! Between the hubby working all the time and having our wonderful two kids, I've almost forgot what those are like. Date nights are important for keeping a relationship fresh I think! I love spending quality time with my hubs!

2. Can you touch your nose with your tongue? Yes I can but just barely! Of course I had to try it first before I could answer!

3. What is your favorite flower and why? Yellow roses. I just really like them, no real reason why though!

4. If you could go back in time, what advice would you give yourself? Make sure you get married for the right reasons. That's probably the biggest mistake I've ever made. I got pregnant and then got married. Even though we talked about getting married before I got pregnant, I probably wouldn't have followed through with it if I didn't get pregnant. I got married the first time for all the wrong reasons. I made the mistake but learned from it and it has made me who I am. I wouldn't be where I am either. Having Olivia changed me for the better and being in a horrible first marriage made me realize the real reasons to get married. Now I have a great husband who is a wonderful stepfather to Olivia, a wonderful father to Owen and my best friend! I couldn't ask for a better husband!

5. If you won the lottery, what is the very first thing you would do? I would pay off all my debts! Then I would buy a new house! Then I would save all the rest! It would be nice to be debt free and financially stable!
