On Tuesday, Michael had all of his wisdom teeth taken out....finally. He had to get stitches and was pretty out of it. He is not the type of person to ever, EVER take medicine and has never had any type of surgery before. So, needless to say, the drugs affected him to the max. While he was sedated, he thought he was at a college party....with the dentist....and the nurses!!! As soon as he "woke up" he thought he was drunk, but couldn't figure out why he was in a dentist chair. Oh, bless him! He then asks for a piece of paper and a pen and writes this:
It says I thought we were at a party and you were there and Smith. Smith was the dentist. When the nurses were wheeling Michael out to the car, I just took one look at him and thought, "Oh Lord!" Mouth full of gauze, he looked over at one of the other nurses and said, "You were there too! We just partied together!!"
Wow! I wish I had that recorded!

We were in Dallas this past weekend working a Fall Fest where we had a booth set up. Michael was workin it!! I walked away for a minute, and he had a few women that entered my raffle and got people's information. What a little sales man he is. It sure was great having him help me this weekend!
After the long day, we went outside where they had some GREAT bands playing....and my dad sang with them. My dad was 'born to be wild!'
Our little monkey came to see us! He spent the weekend with Nana and loved it! She bought him a little push toy that he was actually running up and down the sidewalk with! Totally BLEW MY MIND! I wish I had it recorded!
Davis' little sticker says he's a police pal! Haha :)
Tune in. I'll be back. I know you have lost sleep over me being gone, but I haven't left for good!
Have a great day!!

See? We go way back now! Can't you tell? Haha ;)
Friday night was also a cocktail hour, and meet other stylists. It was great to mingle and learn how other women work the business.
Don't you want to hang with fun people and drink wine while you work?
The training lasted all day on Saturday and we were able to get a sneak peek of the new Holiday pieces that are coming out next month! I am so excited and can't wait to get mine!
Maya Brenner has teamed up with Stella & Dot and made some beautiful pieces for the holidays!
We will also have jewelry cases, as well!
After the phenomenal training, it was off to San Antonio for the rest of the weekend where I had a great trunk show! I had so much fun and can't stress to you how much I love my job. It's liberating!

I hope everyone else had a fantastic weekend!!

My whole life I have always wanted to be a mom. I have always known it. I have always had thoughts of being the mom that had after school snack waiting, was around for field trips, car pool, recitals, practices, and homework. Now, I don't want to be June Cleaver or anything with a little white picket fence, but since I'm going to be staying at home, I want to do it all! And besides, I have decided not to wear my pearls while cooking dinner anymore. I want Davis to experience a great amount of one on one time with me, as well as taking him to a Mother's Day Out and learning with other kids. The same goes for our next child. Even though I have so many years to come, I already think about disciplining when the age comes for drinking, drugs, driving, etc. Why do I already think about that now? I was hell on wheels and Michael was no angel either. People say you are twice as bad as your parents, so that means that Davis may be in juvenile by the time he's hits preschool. (Kidding people. We were never in jail!)
What is my point with all of my rambling? I am so happy right now. I am so proud of my family and love being with them. Michael and Davis are my life and mean the world to me. I am just not quite there yet to add another limb on our family tree. I do realize that it works well for many people, just not us personally. Maybe I should have just had twins and gotten two out of the way! :)

So, I decided to write this quick post to remind myself in the future, that I haven't always had a picky eater. That when Gerber says 'Toddler' on the packages, obviously they don't always apply for every child. And I know I've said it before, but what are we going to do when he's a teenager! He's going to have to have a paper route by the time he's in 5th grade to keep up with his eating!
