My Newest Addiction
I have an addiction. It is something I spend hours a week enjoying. I'm sure some of you enjoy my same addiction. Now since the holidays are right around the corner I am finding myself spending more and more time with my addiction. Here it is...

Please tell me you have enjoyed a few moments there. It's wonderful! Recipes! Crafts! Books! Home decor! My head is spinning! Just in case you haven't tried it out go to Pinterest (click on link) and follow me, we can have fun together!
It's Fall Y'all!

We are officially into Fall. I love everything about fall, especially the cooler weather. It's been a long hot summer around here and the cooler temperatures were welcomed with open arms! I look forward to Fall because so many fun and exciting things start happening! My list of favorite Fall things:

  • Pumpkins! I love decorating with pumpkins, cooking with pumpkins, carving pumpkins and painting pumpkins!
  • Festivals! Around here there seems to be a festival almost every weekend! Who doesn't enjoy a fun festival?
  • Fair! Oh, the fair, what can I say? The rides, the food, the animals and the people watching! I believe the people watching is my favorite part. You can see all kinds of things at the fair, it's better than people watching at Walmart :)
  • Halloween! I will be honest, I'm not a big fan of Halloween, I never have been but my daughter LOVES it! She loves dressing up and has been thinking about her costume for months now!
  • Mountains! We take a trip every year to Cherokee, NC. The leaves are beautiful! We always grab some apples while there, nothing is any better than mountain apples and apple cider! We always visit SantasLand while there, the girls really enjoy that place, it's a great place for younger kids.
So, what is your favorite season?
My Terrible, Horrible, No good, Very Bad Day
Today is Monday. Mondays are usually not the greatest for anyone, but usually I can tolerate them. Today has been a disaster from the moment I sat up in the bed this morning. By the way, I have only been up 4 hours. Let's take a stroll through my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day..shall we?

Emily woke up screaming and crying, for at the time I had no idea why except she was what I assumed still tired. I will figure out later why, so will you.

At 6:56 this morning Sam decided to tell me she needed an apple to take to school today because its Johnny Appleseed Day. Well, of course it is! This wouldn't be bad except I have to be in the car line by 7am or we are in line forever and we have no apples in the house. I went, along with Samantha, to the grocery store yesterday and we bought bananas, grapes, oranges, one kiwi and no apples. So, I figured I could get to my mother-in-laws quicker than the store so I called her (she always has apples)and off we went! By the way, we totally made it one time for the car line.

As soon as I came back into the house I noticed Sams lunch money sitting on the table. Our table, not the table at school which meant I had to drive back over there to turn in the money to the cafeteria. I had NO idea where the cafeteria was.

Finally made it back home to grab some caffeine and sit down to watch some Golden Girls. Then the phone rung.

Emilys teacher was calling to say she had vomited twice and I needed to come get her. So, I take off to get her and trying to call the doctors to see if I can get an appointment. (Yes I talk on the cell and drive at the same time) I get to the school about the time it starts raining and remembered I left her wheelchair cover at home and her wheelchair was going to be soaked by the time I got back home.

So, four hours into my day this is how it went. So, how is your day going?

....And We Meet Again.
This is my third and final attempt at this blog. I have tried in the past to keep up with a blog so I can share a small part of my life with you, but life gets in the way and it falls to the side. So much has been going on but now since things have settled down, I think it's time to give this another chance.

So, here we go...

Samantha Ann

Funny. Loving. Compassionate. Strong Willed. Smart.

Samantha is our firecracker. She is a girl that knows what she wants and won't waiver. She is a social butterfly and makes friends wherever she goes. She is funny and tries anything to make you laugh. She loves her sister and is beginning to understand her sister is different. She is always trying to hug, kiss or hold hands with her sister even if Emily isn't in the mood. She is active and loves to play. We love her and we feel honored to have her in our life.

Laid Back. Hard Working. Loving Father. Wonderful Husband.

He is my best friend. We met August 2001 on the internet, through a personal ad. I was divorced and lonely. We instantly became a couple. He spoiled me more than he should have. We married December 2001. He supported me through college and work, but was very happy when I became a homemaker. We really don't have that much in common but we blend perfectly. I couldn't ask for a better man to be the father of my children.
