A Few Little Projects











I have always wanted to have a chalkboard in my kitchen, I just didn't want to pay Pottery Barns $150.00 for it! So I made my own. I just love the way it turned out! I got the mirror on sale for 16.95!!! I know crazy! So I had to by a special primer and chalkboard paint which totaled $35.00. So my entire total was $51.95, and still have lots of primer and paint left. I also found this frame for $10.00, it was this ugly light wood color. So I primed that sucker and painted away. I don't think it looks to shabby for $10.00, and it holds our feet picture at the beach perfectly :)

15 month checkup and shots :(







Yesterday Carson had his 15 month Dr. Appt. I was totally dreading it because I knew my little man had to get 2 shots. Todd always goes with us to the doctor, and always handles the shots. I stand in the corner, back facing with my hands over my eyes, and cry with my baby! You might think I'm joking , but I promise you I am not! I knew yesterday that Todd could not go with us, so I was really nervous the whole day. When we got there Carson was so happy and just chatting away with everyone he saw. It was breaking my heart knowing they were going to mess his happy mood up. I was doing OK though.......... until they brought the needles in! i started getting sweaty and i could feel the anxiety coming on. But it was over so fast and he did so good. We hugged and rocked for a few minutes, until he spotted a balloon! He was out of that room like a flash after that balloon, and had forgotten all about the pain :) Carson is a total of 21 lbs 20th Percentile ha! He is 75th for height and his head is in the 50th. My little monkey is just perfect!

What an amazing experience


Wow! Yesterday was awesome to say the least! A 14 hour awesome day, but def. awesome! You would not believe what goes into filming a TV series. It is crazy, but so exciting. I met some wonderful, funny, roll on the floor make your stomach hurt kind of people yesterday! we starting shooting yesterday at 6:15 in the morning and I didn't here the last "cut" "that's a wrap" until 8:35 last night! I played an extra as a law student,and it was probably one of the neatest things I have ever done. It consist of a lot of walking back in forth, pretend talking, and a little hand holding :) Its was great :) I would love to do it again, and was told I will probably get call backs soon! Everyone was so nice including the ever so popular Kim Delaney aka as Claudia Joy. We did a lot of shoots with her. It was so surreal to see her in person just acting away, and being only a couple inches away from her. We were severed the most yummy breakfast, lunch and yes dinner while on the set, and we weren't payed to bad either ha! After 8hrs you get paid time and half then after 10hrs it's double:) So Caycee will be patiently waiting on that check to get here haha! Now,I did really miss Mr. Carson yesterday he was asleep when I left and asleep when I got home, so a whole day of not seeing my little monkey :( That's ok though you better believe I got a BIg smile first thing this morning :)

You will not find me on my computer tomorrow, changing dirty diapers,or washing dishes nope I will be on the set of Army Wives all day! I am so excited even though you will probably never see me on camera I cant wait to see how a TV show is really put together. The only details I know right now is I have to be on set at 6:15 and I will be a law student! I will fill you in when I get back! Gotta go catch some zzzzz.

Carsons first haircut




Yay! We finally convinced daddy it was time to take off the curls! I know crazy that we had to talk daddy into it and not mommy! I was ready, I love the way a little boy looks with a little boy haircut. Looks like Carson may his mamas curls, so sorry little monkey, but hey I know a lot of girls dig the curls. Anyways Carson did awesome, really he did. He just sat and looked around the whole time. He did so much better than I thought, I was such a proud mommy!

Playground Fun!







Todd, Carson, and I had a pretty laid back weekend. Todd caught the stomach bug, so he wasn't feeling the best! It was so strange for me to see him sick, because in the 5 years we have been together he has Never been sick! Crazy I know!!!! He has had the occasional cold, but never any kind of bug! On Sunday he was feeling much better, so we decided to take Carson to the playground in our neighborhood. he Loves to slide, and that is pretty much all he wanted to do ha! Hope you guys all had a great weekend too!

My love for Pixie Lily


Just when I thought I couldn't love anything more. it happened........... I fell and I fell hard. Let me just give you a little light on the subject. I have a love a deep love for babies, and baby clothing. I know weird to some, but I'm very passionate about it :) So when little monkey was wiggling in my belly for 9 months I thought, and thought about what it would be like when he got here. For some strange reason every time I visioned my little monkey he was dressed is none other than Pixie Lily every time. I just knew it was a sign to go and find every piece of pixie lily I could, so that is just what I did. My husband on the other hand thought I was a little crazy, and swore if I brought home another piece of Pixie Lily, he was going to beat me ha! My good friend Jodi, who owns Sprout a baby boutique in Charleston probably though the same, but never said a word just helped every time I was on the search for more Pixie Lily. Thanks Jodi for understanding my Love for this line, and helping me dress Carson so lovely! So as you can tell I was obsessed, I mean in Love. So now that you know my story, can you imagine how excited, thrilled, over the moon I was when Leda Jackson herself contacted me for mentioning her line Pixie Lily on my blog. Yes I know I got a little teary eyed in a good way, when my husband called me upstairs and said I think the owner of that baby line you are obsessed, I mean in love with emailed you! I'm pretty sure I tripped up the stairs running so fast! I could not believe my eyes Leda Jackson of Pixie Lily read my blog and wanted to send my little monkey a surprise. First thing that came to mind, O no have everything that she makes in his size. I was wrong, Pixie Lily never disappoints! The next day in this beautiful box was a 2 piece cotton bloomer and top! I swear if I could still do cartwheels, I would have done them, right in the middle of my living room! Thank you so much Leda, you made my day!



PS I told my husband that I was pretty sure this was another one of those signs, letting me know all of our babies have to be dressed in Pixie lily from the day they are born too :)
