Baby Fever

So I'm having a little bit of baby fever.  It's nothing new - been there for at least 2 years.  I'm constantly in negotiations with Brandon about having another baby. Every time I say the word "baby" the man fakes a heart attack to distract me.  I'm thinking that we need to try for a little girl...

See doesn't he look like a guy that would be such a good Daddy to a little girl?

Now don't get me wrong - boy or girl - I'm good either way.  Just need some new little feet around here.  Feel free to drop my husband a line to plead my case.  Majority wins, right?  The man acts like he just met me and has no clue that eventually I always win and get my way. **cue maniac laugh**

Welcome To The Jungle

Last week my little peanut niece, Brooklynn Mae, turned 3.  3?!!? It's hard to believe.

As you can see - not my best look, cut me some slack I was up all night waiting for her to arrive! 

 We went from little peanut to just a little bigger peanut

My sister-in-law, Stacy, planned a great 3rd birthday party! It was a jungle theme and she went all out as usual and everybody enjoyed it!  This lady can put a kids party together like no one's business. 

{Ok so I was 3 hours late due to a dodgeball tournament - you will just have to wait for that post to find out what in the world I was doing at a dodgeball tournament}

The decorations were so stinkin cute and yes I am wearing my safari hat as I write this post.  Just ask The Hubs - he told me how huge of a dork I am. 

Love that messy frosting face! 

So my Brookie Mae turned 3 and just keeps getting cuter by the second.  I am one lucky Auntie Mimi. 

How does he nap like that?

Found this little nugget taking a little before dinner snooze like this tonight

It makes me giggle looking at the pictures again.  He napped like that for a good 20 minutes.  

Girls Night Out

You know you want one! Or two. Or Weekend. 

A great friend owns a company by the name of Bachelorette Nashville and it is so deliciously fantastic.  Their specialty is bachelorette party planning, but they also can do a girls night out! Right 
 up my alley! 

Can you go wrong with a pink Hummer limo?! I think not! 

The best part.. are you ready for it... here it is...

The are located in NASHVILLE!!

If you are going to have a bachelorette party or a girls night out - who wouldn't want it in Nashville! Everybody loves Nashville!

Not Really Jumbalaya

 I recently read a recipe (and no it wasn't from pinterest - I know..shocking) and it was a really yummy sounding jumbalaya recipe.  I was at a lost at what to make for dinner tonight and I was to lazy to take the drive to the store after just getting home from work.  I was looking around in the pantry and realized that I had "most" things for the jumbalaya recipe.  So with that I came up with my "Not Really Jumbalaya" recipe.


1 tbsp olive oil
2-3 cups white rice (depends how many you are serving)
1 Green Bell Pepper - chopped
1 Red Pepper - Chopped
A package of  Gardinera stuffed Italian sausage  - cut into about 1 inch pieces
1 24oz can of tomato sauce
1 can of green chilles
1 can of diced tomatoes

1. Cook Rice - set aside
2. In a large pan warm the olive oil, then add the chopped green pepper, chopped red pepper, and the sausage - brown the sausage and soften the peppers
3. Once that is cooked - add the tomato sauce, green chilles, and diced tomatoes - bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Add the rice - stir up
5. Serve & Enjoy!!!

 I also made biscuits (not by hand, they're pillsbury - lol not that good at cooking) because my 3 guys love biscuits.  But, I made them with a little twist.  Before putting them in the over I spread a little EVOO over the top and then sprinkle some garlic salt on.  Turned out delish!

Soon to Be 50 and Fab!

  I'm starting to plan my Mom's 50th birthday in March with the help of my amazing family.  My sister-in-law and best friend, Stacy, have been scouring pinterest for some great ideas.  But, when I sat down at my computer tonight all I could think of was... I don't want my Mom to turn 50.  It's not that I think 50 is old.. far from it, it just means that my Mom is getting older and that thought scares me a little.  But, let me tell you - my mom makes 50 look GOOD! I can only hope she passed all the good genes down to me.  I think sometimes we can take for granted that our parents will always be around, and I, and I'm sure I'm not alone, cannot imagine a life without my Mom and Dad.  My Mom has always been there and now that I'm older I have realized that she has been my ultimate best friend my entire life.  I put her through some tough times and I'm sure there were times where she wished anyone else in the world was her daughter - but she has loved me unconditionally and without fail.  I can't wait to see her enjoy herself at this party - I can't wait for her to see how much love we are going to put into it.  This lady deserves the absolute best.  I just wish the years weren't passing by so fast and that time can slow a little.  Make each day count - 50 years passes by quick.

The Many Faces Of Lucas

For Christmas I received this beauty...

It is the Sony A57.  I am in love. Like looooooove, love.  So of course, I have been going picture crazy - and I am crazy happy that a certain 5 year old that I know loves to be my test model. 

I bring to you - The Many Face Of Lucas.....

He is hilarious.  I asked him to constantly stop whatever he is playing with to pose for me so I can test all the different settings on the new camera and he is more than happy to help out Mommy! On the contrary, I cannot tell you how many times my husband has said, " Honey I am very happy you like your new camera, but please stop taking pictures and put that thing away."  Ha Never!!
