Fruit Salad? Yes, please!

Photobucket

Brought the kids to THE WIGGLES show on Wednesday night, and they LOVED it!  Here's a peak of Memphis 'rocking out' to their song "Fruit Salad."  Priceless.

When I'm away...

... my mom will find a way to sneak in and decorate my place with tacky halloween decorations!


Gotta love her, though!  The kids really loved it.  We've totally slacked on Halloween this year since we were busy with Memphis' birthday and the wedding plans.  What would I do without her?

I did it!

Here's a pic of the new bangs!  Will take some getting used to, and hopefully they'll start falling into place more naturally... but I don't hate it!  Hubby does though... for now.  He always comes around!  ;)

She Bangs! She Bangs!



Been wanting to do something with my hair for a while now. Having had it short for such a long time, thought it would be fun to grow it out.  But I need a real 'style'... so I'm heading to the hairdressers with this pic as my inspiration.  Will publish my pic when I get back... wish me luck!

October 1st

This day always holds a special place in my heart, because this was my due date exactly 5 years ago. I still remembering waddling around waiting for my little guy to make his appearance! He kept us waiting - almost a week late... but he was well worth the wait! I love my little man, and look forward to celebrating his 5th birthday next week!
