Girlfriends are the best!







Well I had a fabulous weekend with the girls!!! (Of course) It was so nice just to sit, drink, chat, sing, and even a little dancing :) I cant not tell you enough how blessed I feel to have such wonderful girlfriends I love them all so much! There is not one thing that I cant tell any of them, and let me say it is so refreshing just to sit back and not even have to think about what flies out of my crazy mouth! I know they will all love me just the same even though I m a little crazy! It is funny I wondered while I was prego if after I had Carson if I would change as a person? I think that in some ways I have, but I am still ME, the same crazy me. It was so funny Saturday night when we went out we were all singing Karaoke like always :) and this sweet lady came up to all of us and said I don't know if I have ever seen such a close knit group of girls, she said I can just tell by the way yall interact that yall have been friends for along time! She said just make sure after you all get married and have babies you all stay this close. There is not doubt in my mind that we will be 90 years old rocking in chairs at the nursing home still talking crap like we do now ha! I cant believe all my girls are getting married! I could not be more excited for them:) I love you ladies! I will post pics later today!

Introducing Carson and Carson



Our small groups friends just had a sweet baby and they named him Carson :) I love it, now I have someone to hand down all his clothes that have his name monogrammed on them. (and if you know me I monogram EVERYTHING)!!!!!!!!!! Todd and I took them dinner last night I made my enchiladas, rice, chips, and salsa Yum. I think that Todd was a little jealous because they are his favorite! Honey I promise now that our child is almost 7 months I will start cooking again :)

7 to 7 baby!!!




My little man slept from 7 to 7 last night!!! Iwoke up around 6 then 6:30 and still no crying Carson??? How cute is this baby in his crib!!!!

Downtown Bound!







OK Todd and I have lived in the beautiful Charleston, SC now for 2+ years and we LOVE it! But things change after baby....... I had planned for us (me, Todd, and baby) To take weekend trips downtown. (one of the reasons I purchased the Bugaboo). It is/was one of mine and hubby's favorite things to do! If you have ever been downtown Charleston I don't have to explain why!



Any who we finally made it there with BABY!!!! Ok I know Carson is almost 7 months old, but at least we got there ha. We had such a great time :) We went to one of our favorite pizza places and Carson had his very first taste, lets just say I think this man is going to love pizza. We also took a trip to get some goodies for our other son Rocky at the doggie bakery he was a very happy pup when we got home!

Cayden, Carter, and Carson 3 crazy cousins







Friday night when Todd and I got into town we went and visited my brother, SIL, and my sweet niece and nephew. They were so cute all together. they were so sweet to Carson and seemed really interested in him. Carter loved rubbing his head and giving him kisses. Carson loved them as well! I cant wait when they all get a little older and can really play together. cousins are the best, and not to long we will have another playmate! My SIL Carrie is due (I think) October 9. We can wait to meet this sweet baby BOY!

Old Friends and New beginnings







Todd, Carson and I had a great weekend! We went to the good old Flo town! One of my very good friends is getting married, and she had an engagement party Saturday night. We had such a great time, it is so nice to get together with all the girls and catch up. I know that I have mentioned this before, but I feel so blessed to have the Big group of close girlfriends that I have. Good friends are hard to come by, but we have managed to stick together for over 9 years now. No matter how long we all go without talking, when we get together its like old times! I can def. tell that I am a mom now, Todd and I tried to go out after the party and boy did we pay for it he next morning! ( I still have not caught up on all my sleep ha). Also another one of the "girls" just got engaged this weekend Congrats Lindsay :) We are all so happy for you.

They call it Puppy Love







Carson loves his girlfriend Addison. He just smiles every time he gets to see her. I love watching them play together:) As much as 2 6months old can play ha!ha! My friend Candice I usually try to get together at least once a week, and spend some mommy time together. It is so nice to have Candice to talk to about everything especially since Addison and Carson are only 9 days apart funny I know.

A little OCD

OK the question I have is am I a little ocd or borderline crazy???? Let me just fill you in on a little secret about me....... I love everything in my house to be organized and very clean and I am probably the most scheduled person you will ever meet! I was never like this growing up and even through college (the small time I went ha). But after my husband and I got married it all changed. I was crazy about everything, and then after baby WOW watch out a lot worse! I just feel so much better when everything is neat and clean and on schedule. I am just worried I am a little bit overboard. I am going to give you a weeks worth of my schedule and you tell me?? Really I want your advice?

Monday- Carson and I get up @ 6 and do his morning routine, then he takes his morning nap. While he is napping I take my shower and get ready. If he still sleeping I do some laundry. Then by 9:45 I am out the door on my way to work. ( Have I mentioned I love my job and wish I could work more that 1 day a week) But that's ok I know daddy pays the bills. Then as soon as I get off I do our weekly grocery shopping. ( 9times out of 10 I have dinners and lunches planned for the week). When I get home I put all the groceries up in there exact place. Then if my little mokeys up, I play with him. Around 5 Todd and I start making dinner. I say Todd and I because we usually grill 4 nights out of the week, and he does the grilling. Depending on Carson we may eat after its done or I may feed him first. after dinner Todd gives Carson his bath, I feed him baby food for his last meal and then Carson and daddy read books, say prayers and its off to night night land.

Tuesday- Morning routine is the same as Monday, then we have to get ready and leave the house around 10:30 for Gymboree at 11:00. It is so hard sometimes and I feel so guilty when we don't make it. after Gymboree Carson is wiped out and naps the whole way home. yay for that because he usually cries the whole way there.(he hates the car)! We get home he usually takes the rest of his nap and I finish all the laundry, sweep and vacuum. Tuesday nights we have small group, so we go to that and usually get home @ 8:30 and put Carson strait down for the night. We just do his bedtime routine before we go to small group.

Ok I have decided that I am not going to type out the rest of the week unless you guys are really interested, because I don't want to overwhelm you. But basically that is how the rest of the days of the weeks look, They are really planned out ha! O yeah and I do go to the gym Wed, Thurs, and every other Friday. We just started a play group that meets every other Friday in Mt Pleasant, I will let y'all know how that goes.

The problem with this is that If something goes off my Mon-Fri schedule I don't handle it very well, and I need help on how to handle that?? I am already on Zoloft for my anxiety and postpartum, so drugs not really an option already on those ha ha!

Blog Catch Up





On Friday morning Little man had date. My friend Candice had a job interview so his girlfriend Addison came to see him, and as you can tell from the pictures he was loving it! I have decided that we really need a little girl next. Addison is the sweetest thing ever! I just loved spending time with her and was already planning shopping trips for the two of us ha! (doesnt he look like he enjoyed that cookie from earlier.





On Wednesday we got a new highchair, and let me just tell you I love it! I feel like Carson sat in it most of the day and ate! ha! Just like his mom loves to eat:)










Ok I am have got to do some major catching up. Iam just going to briefly tell you about each day of our week last week............ Tuesday night we had a baby shower for a sweet couple in our small group. They are having their second and its a BOY!!! We are so happy for them. It was a couples shower but daddy and Carson stayed home, because Carson was very tired!
