Happy to be a working Mom

Sometimes I stop and think....hrmmmm maybe I could be a stay at home Mom.
Then reality snaps me back in my spot! I am happy to be a working Mom.
Addison loves daycare and she learns so much-it helps Addison to be out working with other kids, learning, painting, playing outside, learning to share, gets to read books all the time. Why would I want to take that away from her-she loves it and I am so glad she does. With me and Bryan working-we are able to support her in every way. So I am happy to not be a stay at home Mom. Not to mention-I would not actually be able to stay at home! haha which would mean I'd have to work to make up for all of the money I'd be spending while "staying at home". haha

No go on the house

Yesterday I went and checked out 2 more houses on the market with my parents and my niece Samantha. Before walking into the 1st one my agent JS asked me if I wanted the "news" inside or when we stepped into the house. We choose outside-so she said Oak Trail is done! DO WHAT was kind of my 1st thought. We put an offer on a house March 8th and just found out on July 18th that it is a no go. WoW-Mark my words-LAST SHORT SALE EVEEERRRRRRR. The bank countered on our offer $30K above us. Not cool and we totally blame the no good selling agent. I wish agents would not take houses that they really don't want to sell. Sooooo moving on-we are now full swing looking for a house again. Let the SHOPPING begin!!

Atlanta Braves Weekend in Georgia

Bryan, Addison and I left out on July 1st for Atlanta heading to cousin Jill's house for the 4th. We left Memphis at 6:30 and arrived in Atlanta 2:30a.m.!! The last 2hrs in the car were the worst for Addison-the last hour I ended up holding up her head so she could sleep (this is what love is). Saturday morning we woke up and went to the pool with Jill and Mike-Addison had a blast! She loves to swim & throw things in the pool. Then around 4p.m. we got ready and headed to pick up Mike and had dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen (awesome place-highly recommended!)-then we hopped on MARTA and rode down to the Atlanta Braves game that started at 7:10-great game!! We got to see a grand slam!! It was a little hot-but with 2 innings left we watched the rain come in-so we all ended up leaving to head home. We had a wonderful time and hope to keep this tradition up every year. Addison loved watching everything including the fireworks and moving Chick-Fil-A Cow that does the Braves wave! The only thing she wasn't craxy about was when everyone was really loud during the grand slam. Bryan got his HUGE hotdog and I got my dip-n-dots which makes this game a great one! Sunday we layed around then went to visit Bryan's Mom-Ginger. They made us a delicious dinner and had tons of gifts to give Addison. One of the coolest gifts was Ginger's collection of Disney movies-which we watched on the way home-she had been collecting the movies before Addison was born. The best part was eating chocolate covered strawberries (Addison LOVED it!). Monday was a nice family bonding day at The Mall Of Georgia!! Yahoo Weeeee once a year I get Bryan to go to the mall with me. I love the time that we get to spend together. Addison's favorite part was the carousel. I also bought Addison her birthday present while we were down there-an Itty Bitty baby from the American Doll Collection. She is all into baby dolls-so caring with them and she feeds them all the time and makes sure they take a nap. We ended up heading back home after dinner at Firehouse Subs we made it 3hrs out to Manchester TN-Then on Sunday we woke up and had breakfast in bed and then drove 4 hours home-we did stop in Jackson to see Aunt Debbie and Uncle Tommy to drop off a delivery of books from Jill. We had such a great trip to Atlanta and can't wait till we get to go back.

Fireworks at Bellevue-AWESOME

Father's Day


We had Father's Day with my Dad on Saturday afternoon at American Cafe'-Kelly and I got Dad a gift certificate to Shutterfly so he could do his book from the Europe trip. We had a great lunch and then headed to Ali and Lee's for the Crawfish boil (2 posts back). Yes I am playing catch up! On Sunday-Father's Day I got Addison up and we suprised Daddy with a new much needed wallet and a collectors set of Johnny Walker Whiskey-Happy Father's Day-Have a Drink! haha

Addisons Hair

The daycare teacher told me a funny story the other day & I wanted to share it to remember it....
One of the little girls in the daycare room Samantha aka. Sammy to Addison told her Mom that she wanted her hair done like Addison-which is most of the hair on the top of her head pulled up into a ponytail and then a bow in the front. Well Sammy's Mom didn't know what Addison's hair looked like so she tried pigtails on Sammy and Sammy said NOOOO like Addisons! haha Oh My Goodness!! A Style Maker at 1 1/2!! Crazy~My little fashionista in Training!
