Happy Fall and 5QF

Well, today is the first offical day of fall!! Yay!! I LOOOVE fall! I love the weather, the colors, the fun happenings. I just love everything about fall. Happy Fall ya'll! :D

Now time for 5 Question Friday.

1. Dream job...realistic and completely unrealistic.

Dream job for me... (realistic) is a nurse, I think, or maybe a preschool teacher.

Unrealistic I'm gonna go with the host of 5QF and say Princess! :D That sounds like a nice job to me! :D

2. Do you fart in front of your significant other?

Yep, I sure do. I'm not a gasy person, but if I need to let one out I do! lol Have you ever tried to hold a fart in? I have and it HURTS!! So I let one go if I need to. He farts in front of me! I wish he didn't, but he does.

3. What's the furthest you've ever traveled from home? How far and where was it?

Ummm... I haven't been to many places outside of Tennessee, but I think the furthest I've been from here is Indianapolis. I was with my dad and his girlfriend at the time. We went up there to visit her famly.

4. How do you celebrate birthday for your kids? Family only or friends? ... Alternate for those without kiddos: How did you celebrate birthdays as a kid?

Well, since Tom-Tom is only 3 1/2 and doesn't go to school or daycare he doesn't have very many friends that are his age. I have friends that have kids, but most of them are older. So, with that being said we usually have one party with both friends and family. Most of the time our friends don't show up anyway so it's mainly just family.
5. Fave thing about fall?

As mentioned above I LOOOVVE fall! I love everything about it! I can't pick just one thing that I love about fall.


Happy Friday folks and have a great weekend!

Fun times

Yesterday me, my cousin and our kids went to a botanical garden called Cheekwood. We had a good time, but I bet we didn't walk even a quarter of the place. It's HUGE!! Anyway our boys had a great time and I had an awesome time watching them playing and running around like crazy! Here are a few pics and I will post more when I get most/all of them into collages.

Not much going on

As the title says, there hasn't been too much going on around here lately.

I went to my cousin's house on Sunday (she was fussing at me because she hasn't seen us in a while). She told me she had a bunch of baby clothes for me and I could pick them up while I was there. Well, I get over there and she was more than just clothes. Here's all the stuff she gave me:
 She gave me a bouncy seat, playmat and the thing in the back is a thing you can put the baby in if you want them to sleep in the bed with you.

 Here's the clothes.
 Front view of the clothes drawer. The brown thing in the top right corner is a carseat cover.
She also gave us a bassinet.

Yay!! I'm so excited! :-D

According to an app on hubby's iPhone this is what Sophia will look like. We shall see in about 2.5 months.

Crazy prego dreams...

I'm REALLY beginning to HATE my crazy pregnancy dreams!! Last night I had a dream that me and Tom-Tom were in Wal-Mart and he was sitting in the front of the buggy and some old perv came up to me and asked if he could come with him and live in his truck for a month. The perv also offered us a pair of Christmas socks after I declined. lol WTH?!! Last month I had a dream that Thomas went pshycho and let's just say the outcome was NOT pretty! UGH!! What's up w/these crazy dreams?

Friday, again and you may or may not know what that means. It's time for 5 Question Friday!

1. What ringtone do you have on your cell phone?

I have alot of different ones. I can't think of all of them right now and my phone ois dead, but a few of them are Blake Shelton - Honeybee, Lil Wayne - How to Love and Rihanna - Man Down

2. What is your favorite memory from this summer?

Well, since the first half of my summer was filled with working and sleeping (blame the first trimester of pregnancy for that) I would have to say it has been the last part of the summer and just spending time with Tom-Tom and enjoying (sort of) my pregnancy.

3. Paper books or ebooks?

Paper. I'm not cool (or fortunate) enough to own anything that I can read an ebook on. :( Hopefully, when tax time rolls around I will, though. Our plan is to get two tablets (one for me and one for Hubby).

4. If you could have one home upgrade what would it be and why?

Ugh, can I say the whole house?! lol This house was built in the 70's and it is kind of small and I would LOVE to move!

5. When was your first serious boyfriend/girlfriend?
I guess when me and the hubby moved in together.
Have a nice weekend.

Rainy Tuesday

Well, it's been a wet weekend. We didn't have much going on this weekend because of the rain. Saturday, we were stuck at home all day without a car because hubby had to work. Sunday, Monday and Today were rainy days. It doesn't look like the rain will be going anywhere anytime soon either.

Today we began working on the alphabet again. We're working on the letter B this week. Tom-Tom painted a butterfly with Q-tips. We did a little "worksheet" called X's and O's. I wrote a big letter B at the top of the paper and wrote all the other letters of the alphabet at the bottom of the page, in no particular order. After that we went out side to do a little science experiment with a paper airplane, but Tom-Tom was worried about it getting wet so he just played in the mud puddles instead.

This week

Well, we have had some fun this week and I have been meaning to post about it all week... just never got around to doing it! I know, I know I'm a slacker! lol

So. Monday we didn't do much of anything. Tuesday was a pretty boring day also. We just hung around the house. We went for a walk down our street and that was about the extent of our Tuesday.

Then, Wednesday was started learning the alphabet. We are doing a letter a week. Of course, it's only natural that we start with the letter A.

I cut out an apple, an ant and a letter A and Tom-Tom glued them all together (with my help of course).

Yesterday I got some inspiration from The Crafty Crow and we made an alligator.

The white triangles are supposed to be teeth. Don't ask me what happened there! lol

Then, Tom-Tom had some fun on his own (practicing writing his name)

And later on in the day (after about 2 hours of putting the thing together) we had some fun with his train set that he got for Christmas last year.

Today we haven't made any fun projects based on the letter A, BUT we did make some awesome jam filled cookies. Now, let me tell you I'm NOT a baker but I got the recipe for jam filled butter cookies and they are soooo good!! :D
 Mix it up

 Adding the flour.

 After we were done and the cookies were in the oven he decided that it was more fun to play in the dirty dishes and water!


After... YUMM!!

5 Question Friday

Goodness! Friday already?!! AND September already?!! Holy time warp Batman!! I can't believe it's already September!! You know what that means... don't ya?! Only 79 days until little Sophia is due! :D :D I'm soo excited!! It's going to be hectic around here with a newborn and having to chase a 3 yr old around and keep him entertained!

Anyway, enough about that. Let's get on with the 5 Question Friday.

1. Shoes in the house - yay or nay?

Well, I'm with Mama M. on this one. Normally I don't care, but if you have poop on your shoes... then yea your shoes gotta come off!!

2. What do you call them- flip flops, slippers, thongs, etc?

I call them flip-flops or sometimes if I'm feeling froggy I will call them flippy-flops.
3. What song are you almost embarrassed to admit you know all the lyrics to?

Ummm.... I'm not really sure I have any. At least I can't think of any right now. *shrugs*
4. What is the best quality to have in a friend?

I'm going to have to go with... no two facedness (is that a word?!! I don't think so, but I don't care I'm gonna go with it! lol)
5. Do you know what you want for Christmas?

Oh good Lord!! NO!! I don't even want to think about Christmas!! lol I'm sooo not ready!


Everyone enjoy your long weekend! I think it's going to be rainy here for most of it. :(
