Make My Monday-Update

As much as I have loved doing Make My Monday, it looks like it is coming to an end. I hate that it will be no longer, and makes me very sad to say. If anyone out there sees this, and knows that a piece of their life will be missing, feel free to do it with me.

It's fun, easy, and simple. Let's do this together! Revamp it. Start over. What do you think? Who's going with me?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Oh, Transitions

Davis is slowly still adjusting to being in Houston, and the poor guy is taking a little longer than I thought. Every day he asks me when he is going to go home. He even brought up his buddy from McKinney, which was house #2 for him. And that was also about 8 months ago. If you're just starting to read, we have now moved 4 times in a year. Yes, freaking shoot me in the face. This week, Michael had to leave to go out of town VERY expectantly. And when I say VERY, he came home in a tizzy, saying he had ten minutes to pack a bag and a car was waiting for him outside. He has yet to come home. So now, Davis thinks we have moved to a new place, and daddy is never coming home. Needless to say, this week has sucked like major! We had to go by the new house this week to pick out fixtures, flooring, etc (which by the way, Davis was awesome, especially being there for FOUR hours!) so overall, was a trooper! I've been trying to explain that we will be moving in soon, and that's our new house. Davis is so confused and last night, asked me if daddy was going to be at the new house when we move. My poor little guy.
I also haven't been able to leave Davis at the gym for very long to go workout. And I mean, like 10 minutes, and they are paging me over the speaker system to return to the childcare room. He's beat red, in hysterics, and screaming for mommy. While on one hand, it's sweet he wants me, but worries me at the same time. He is used to going to the gym everyday. This whole move has set him over the edge. I can't put him down, leave his sight, and he hasn't been wanting to eat as much since Michael has gone out of town. I have that helpless sense, of not really knowing how to handle this at the moment. It's frustrating, tiresome, and of course, worries me. I hate that my little baby is having a rough time right now. He just seems worried and scared. Like he's afraid I'm going to turn the corner and run off and leave him.

All I know to do is talk to him and tell him everything is going to be okay. That mommy is here, and daddy is just at work. And don't worry, we are going to get settled next month. Everything is okay. And to pray and pray hard. I don't want my little baby scared.

Catch Up With Picutre, Time

Date night at Danton's. That right there is a dream in a sundae cup. Huge chunks of lump crab meat, crab claws, and a bunch of yummy goodness. AND their own tortilla chips. I'm telling you. Heaven in a cup!

 Oh, my special lovie. I'm not really sure what this was about, but you bet your bootay I'm going to post it!
I am loving this color right now. I want it in everything. With turquoise! Okay, maybe not everything, but close enough. And that chair?? I wanted to take it home with me. But I thought they may frown upon someone trying to carry it out the door.
 Bayou City Art Fest...AMAZING! This was a performance, that I loved. Modern. Dance. Realistic. Awesome.
A friend of mine just moved to Houston as well. Another AWESOME! So he actually got his first REAL haircut. Meaning...not by me, i.e. unlicensed, butchered haircut, awful. He still has all of his crazy curls, so we are good to go!

That's it in a nutshell, folks! I'm trying to post more, but just having had moved, things are a little crazzzzzzzay! Don't cry. I'll be back :)
Have a great week!!

Mommy’s Sippy Cup 
Monday, Monday. La la, lalala. So good to me. Well, at least we can hope!! haha. It's that time again, ladies. So grab me and Kelly's button and make our Monday! The questions for this week were:
What is your favorite thing about spring? Favorite place to enjoy? Do you have a favorite color? Share your favs about spring time!

Spring has to be my FAVORITE!! I love how spring starts out cool and crisp outside. When you're able to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning when the air still has a chill in it. How the days are longer and we can enjoy playing outside a little bit more.

I can't get enough of lilies. They are my most favorite flower. To me, lilies look simple, yet elegant and I love having them in my house. They were even one of my wedding flowers, so I'm a little partial to them.
I love all of the bright colors, and I especially LOVE all the decorations for Easter.
Spring just flat out makes me happy. Now, if only we could do something about allergies! haha :)
With it being so close to Easter, April 2nd question is: Do you have any family traditions for Easter? Egg Hunt? Church? Family Lunches?
Hope you have a wonderful day, everyone!!

One Week Down....

The first week in Houston, I have to say has been pretty successful. We've stayed pretty busy, and I think (I say think) that Davis is slowly starting to understand that we are staying here. I did take him by the new house the other night, and tried to tell him like 50 times that 'this is our new house.' What I'm sure didn't help was that we didn't stay, there were a ton of people working, and why was there dust all over the floor? And wait, if this is our house, where is Dexter? I'm just glad that little man is so young, that he won't remember most of it. Someone told me a few days ago that this is all harder on me than it is on him. I totally agree, thank goodness. My heart just cries a little when he asks me to go home.

I did find a Mother's Day Out program for Davis this week, though. Yay!!! It will be Tuesday and Thursday only, for a few hours a day. Perfect! I have my first spray tan appointment booked during his first week of school. Another score! (don't forget if you're in Houston, I have specials going on. Sorry, had to throw that in there) We also activated my membership again at LifeTime gym. Have you ever been to one? I swear, it's perfect for moms. I could spend the whole day with Davis there! They have an amazing childcare center, pool and kids pool, cafe, spa, amazing classes, and new equipment. It's a dream. We went there yesterday and spent like 3 hours there working out, having lunch, and Davis throwing a tantrum.

Our house is coming along great. It's just awesome. Goodness me, I'm just a little excited! So they painted samples, and went ahead and did the master bedroom to give me the full effect. DROOL!!! I chose a deep gray and it has a purple tint to it. Trust me, I know it sounds weird. But it AMAZING!! Even the designer was like, I think this is what you wanted, but umm, not so sure. I'll just have to take pictures soon and show you, but just take my word for it!

I even got to have a girls night out last night! What?!? Yes!! I know someone in Houston! Shut yo mouth, I know! It was fun to get out for a few hours for dinner and drinks, and no public tantrums. I'm hoping this is a good sign of things to come. This week has been pretty stinkin great for the most part, and I'm praying everything will be fantastic! I'm excited for work, although a little nervous at the same time. Houston has so much competition, so it's getting that first handful of people to start the whole word of mouth going. Slowly but surely. I know it's going to take time and will happen eventually. Plus, I have to remind myself I've only been here a week!

Date night tonight with my lovie, and children's festival tomorrow! It should be a great weekend!!! Hope you have a fun filled weekend, as well :)

As a side note, what the heck happened to blogger?? Why can't they leave good alone? My list is gone...can it be recovered? And the format? What in the world? I'll have to take blogger classes, now. haha :)

What A Trooper

Dear Davis,
I can't begin to tell you how proud mommy is of you right now. We've packed up, and moved you around so much lately that you are becoming a pro. Not that that is anything to be proud of. But you are being such a big boy about it, and I couldn't be more proud of you. I know you're confused, and you have no clue what is going on. I try and tell you everyday that Houston is our new home. That this apartment is where we will be for the next month. And that we are finally moving back into a house! You look at me with your little raised eyebrow and just say, home? Yes, baby. We are going to have a home. I know this is a lot to take in right now, and it's okay. It's been a lot on everyone. You do such a great job of smiling, and helping mommy smile, too. You have been asking me several times when we are going home. It makes my heart hurt a little, because I know you are so confused. The first time you asked me, I tried not to cry because it took me by such surprise. Then I wonder if you want to go back to our last apartment, because you actually seemed to hate that place. (Well, as did we all)

Little man, just know that things are going to be back to normal in no time. And you have my word on this. You are getting so big, and you amaze me more and more everyday. Just today, you went with me to look at a new Mother's Day Out program, and jumped right in to start playing with the other kids. It was a proud moment for mommy, as I watched you fit right in. You are becoming so independent, and learning so much, so fast. You have even begun potty training. You get so excited, and run across the room to show daddy or I what you've done. Such a big boy!!

Tomorrow, you get to go see our new house for the first time. I'm going to try to take you by there as much as possible, so you can get used to seeing it.'s mommy and daddy approved, so I'm pretty sure you'll think it's  awesome!

Davis, you are one amazing little man, and I am so proud to be your mommy. You melt my heart, make me laugh, and you have made this moving process so much easier being the trooper that you are. I love you, monkey.
Look at that cool kid, in his cool shades!!

Alone Time-Make My Monday

Mommy’s Sippy Cup 

It's that time again, everyone. Time for a new, crazy, busy week. Well, we are in Houston and back in full swing. Soon enough we will be, that is. So far, so good. I can say I really like it a lot (can't say love yet) and I am soooo excited to be here. We are temporarily in the Galleria area, which is awesome and overwhelming all at the same time. I'll save all of this for another post :)

Do you have your answers ready?? You had better! Remember to tell everyone, because the cool kids link up with Kelly & and; I. Go grab our button, add it to you're amazing post, and link it!
This week the questions are:
Where is a place you go to for "ME" time? What do you do to relax? How do  you deal with a bad day, a tragedy,or disaster? Who's the person you go to the most when you're down?
When I actually get me time, I pamper myself. I like to go relax and get a pedicure. Shoot, I could sit in one of those massage chairs alone all day if someone would let me. The massage is a bonus. But throw in a glass of wine with a foot massage, and an awesome chair and I've died and gone to heaven! I melt away and forget all about my crazy son slapping me, or screaming all day, or wanting to hide in the closet all day. Pure. Bliss.

Just please leave me there until drool starts running down my chin. At that point, just wipe it and leave me there a little longer. A little shopping therapy doesn't hurt, either. So maybe when I'm done, I'll go buy a new dress or top to add a huge smile on my face. Shhh.....don't tell. I just tell Michael, 'what this dress? I've had this for so long! Shooot!' This is my remedy for all things for me. Time for myself, time to relax, and deal with a bad day. Peace and quiet! Can I get an Amen?

My go to person for just about everything is my main man, Michael. He's the bomb diggity fo shizzle! He knows me better than anyone and accepts me for who I am, weirdness and all. He listens whole heatedly and has a way of calming me down when I need it. He's the best advice giver and helps me out with so much. I absolutely adore the relationship that we have, and am so blessed to have him in my life. We are open, honest, and have such a fun relation together. He's pretty freakin awesome!
BUT, when it's him that I vent about, then I usually rant to my bestie and she gets an ear full. Hey, it's what they are there for, right? haha :)

Can't wait to read your answers. So hurry and go write your post, and go link up with us :)

Next week is: 3/26/12-What is your favorite thing about spring? Favorite color? Favorite flower? Favorite place to enjoy? Favorite things to do outdoors??

It's Time!!

I've been talking about it for what feels like for freaking ever, and the time has finally come. We move to Houston this week!!!!! Like I said, I'm elated, over the moon, crazy excited! Even though we don't move into our house until the end of April, it doesn't matter. I can't wait to get there and start exploring the city. Try new restraunts, activities with Davis, SHOPPING, find a new church, meet new people....everything! So, I'm curious. Do I have any followers in Houston? Who is going to be my tour guide? Any takers? Come on, now. Don't be shy! And if I do have followers in Houston, then you have to help a sister out. With what, you ask? Well, don't worry because I'm going to tell you. I need to get my mobile tanning biz up and running sooner than later. If you're new to my blog, yes, that's what I do and I LOVE it! I'm an esthetician and go to people's homes and businesses and make them all bronzed up and beautiful. Hence my business name, Beautifully Bronzed. I am looking for a blogger in Houston to 1. do a review for me on a retail product (you know you want to) 2. help me spread the word. I'll give you a free tan when you host a party, or $10 off a custom tan with your choice of add on. 3. refer a friend and receive $20 off (can not be joined with tanning party) 4. tan 10 times and get a freebie! So who's up for the task? This is perfect with the warmer weather just around the corner!

If you don't live in Houston, but know someone that does, I would so appreciate a little word of mouth. Thank you in advance, ladies!!

I'm sure I'll also be updating a lot about the house process. It's seriously my dream home! White picket fence in the front yard, white kitchen cabinets, tons of windows for LOTS of light (who wants to sit in a dark room. Blech!) built ins, wine bar. Yes, they knew I was coming and are throwing in a wine bar. Hellllooooo people! Perfect? I think yes.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Make My Monday!!

Okay, everybody! It's that time again for MAKE MY MONDAY with the amazing and fabulouso Kelly! Go ahead and grab our butt....on, post it, and link up! This week the questions were
3/12/12-What is your style best summed up as? Classic, trendy, modern? What is your typical go to outfit? What beauty product can you NOT live without?

 My style is....that's actually a good question. Most of my days I'm in gym clothes. I wake up in the morning, grab little man, and head out to the gym. IF I have enough time, I shower and get dressed for the day there. If not, I go out in public like a stinky gym rat, and pretend I have no clue what the looks are about. Or I lean over to Davis and say Whew!! Stinky diaper! haha :)
My style is a modge podge of different things. I love classic looks the best, I would say. Things that I can keep in my wardrobe through seasons, and not 'discontinue' them. Just because the fashion designers don't like a certain piece anymore, doesn't mean I feel the same way.
I LOVE easy dresses that I can throw on that are effortless. That is my go to outfit. Whether it's a long summer dress and sandals, or knee length with some boots. It makes me feel like I'm among humans and didn't just have food thrown at me. Good thing I carry wipes!

And last, but not least, my beauty product I can NOT live without is concealer! I have always had bags under my eyes that are a red shade. This isn't attractive to most people, so I try and hide them as best as I can. Even if I'm just going to the grocery store, I slap some of that stuff on and I feel awake again!!
That stuff is the best. It's by Urban Decay and I drool for it. It moisturizes, and covers soooooo great. I think any mom should be handed some after they have a baby. Just sayin!

Hope you link up with us! Tell your friends, your mom, your neighbors, and of course, tweet about it! 

The next two weeks topics are :3/19/12-Where is a place you go to for "ME" time? What do u do to relax? How do u deal with a bad day, a tragedy,or disaster? Who's the person you go to the most when Your Down?

3/26/12-What is your favorite thing about spring? Favorite color? Favorite flower? Favorite place to enjoy?
Favorite things to do outdoors??

On My Heart-Life!!

Today, I'm linking up with Casey, for What is on your heart, and I think you should do the same!

I am a worrier. Maybe a worrier my nature, a worrier by fault, a worrier that I worry about worrying. Believe it or not, I've gotten a lot better and calmed my worrying self down a bit, but can be consumed with racing thoughts of everything that is going on in life all at the same time. And go figure, most of this happens right when I am trying to go to sleep. My brain won't shut off, and I'm consumed with what if thoughts. This hasn't happened in quite some time, but lately I find myself contemplating on every aspect of my life. At bedtime. Making me a zombie the next day. A lot of has to do with the fact that I'm a mom, and the other half is fear of the unknown. i.e. moving again, and this time to a big city, which scares me a little bit. Michael told me, well, Jessica. You're from Dallas! Why are you so nervous? Well, yes. I realize that. But I've never lived IN the city before. When we move to Houston next week, (next week, people! Holy moly I can't wait!) we will be living in the city. I nearly had a flippin panic attack when we went there a few weeks ago, and we were stuck in traffic. Dallas traffic is bad, yes, but this! Whoa! This is a whole other ball field! Don't get me wrong though, I am beyond excited about living in the city. It will be great for Michael, being that it is 5 miles away from his office. Great for Davis and I because there is so much to do! The parks are beyond beautiful, moms group in my neighborhood (that I'm hoping I fit in to this time!) a women's club (similar to jr. league in that is does a lot of charity work for the neighborhood and community) indoor playgrounds, soccer tots (so excited about this) and a great night life for me and my lovie!
So, what all the worrying for?
1. The mother's day outs average between $350-$1150 a month (What the WHAT? That's almost a car payment or almost a mortgage payment! They don't even serve sushi for lunch! Ha!)
2. The MDO's that I can afford of course didn't get good reviews online. Such as: kids coming home with bruises and bite marks with no notifications, not being fed, dirty, high turnover rate, director cursing at her staff in front of kids, etc. I felt like I was going to be sick!
3. Or the waiting list has 50 people on it.
4. I have found one that I'm going to do a tour, and the MDO is at a church. What I was hoping for. I am praying that this school is nice and I have that good gut feeling about it.
5.Work. In order for me to work and start spreading the word about my tanning biz, Davis has to be in school.
6. Work. Praying that I can get up and started in my area sooner than later. It's so important to me, and I really enjoy what I do. Hopefully other people will feel the same way.
7. Our house-praying that everything works out for this house. Because this house is my DREAM home! Everything from the exterior to the kitchen. I love it and can't wait to be in it.
8. I just need to breathe, pray, and know that everything will fall into place as it should. Okay, I got this!!!!

Mommy’s Sippy Cup 
Don't forget to link up on Monday with Kelly & I. Next Monday's question is what is your-What is your style best summed up as? Classic, trendy, or modern? What is your typical go to outfit? What is one beauty product you can't live without?

Hope to see you Monday!!!

I'm A Mad Housewife!

For the wine, that is. If you know me (which you don't have to. Simply look at my header and that says enough) then you know I love me a good glass of wine. Vino is my friend to the rescue. My partner is crime. One that lets me put my hands all over him and never says anything. Oh, sorry.....I got a little carried away.
I am a sucker for a great wine label. Whether it is a painting, an image I love, or just the logo itself that catches my eye. So, needless to say, this more than caught my eye.
Who wouldn't that attract? I love it!! Not only does the label crack me up, it's pretty darn good wine, I must say. I drink mostly reds, so the Cabernet is my favorite.
And the other thing I LOVE about the bottle is the verbiage on the back. If it's anything I hate about wine, is when it tells me nothing on the back. Give me a little story. Tell me about the wine, where it's from. Give me a quirky little blurb about how the bat crazy wife made everyone stomp on the grapes until they had blisters from the stems? I don't care what it may be, but tell me something. Everyone knows that the surgeon general says don't drink while you're pregnant, and not to operate machinery. (Does a flat iron count? That could be machinery and be dangerous!) I was pleasantly surprised when Mad Housewife gave me this quick little summary that spoke to my heart. Which then led to the bottle to saying, please, drink more. We are one.

“Somewhere near the cool shadows of the laundry room.
Past the litter box and between the plastic yard toys.
This is your time.
Time to enjoy a moment to yourself.
A moment without the madness.
The dishes can wait.
Dinner be damned.
Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon”

This just gets me. Only I am allergic to cats, so we will have to have a talk about that. Pretty great, though, right? Have you tried it before?

What are your favorite bottles? Wines?

This should be a linkup....just sayin! Next week? Wednesday? Be there!

Speaking of linkup, next week's linkup question is:
What is your style best summed up as? Classic, trendy, or modern? What is your typical go to outfit? What beauty product can you NOT live without?

Ramble On, Sing My Song!

It's that time again! Link up with two of my bloggy lovers for TTUT. Yes, bloggy lovers. They know what's up! And TTUT! That just means it's a must that you go on over there and check out what all the buzzzzzzzz is about!
I have about a 1,000,001 things on my head right now, so this a random ramble of nothing in particular.
1. We begin the moving process next week!! I feel like I've had a countdown going in my head, okay, and on here too, for so long now! I can not wait to get out of this dang apartment. However, we will be staying in another apartment until our house is finished, but I'm sure that the devil's advocate won't be living there, and they will have people on sight that actually work. And it's also a furnished apartment. So praise little 8 pound baby Jesus, that we don't have to unpack anything for just a few weeks!
2. I can't express enough how sad I am about Davis not being in his school anymore. He has progressed so much, learned so much, and absolutely loves being there. I could keep going on about it all day because it truly is an amazing little preschool. I have been trying to check into schools around our area in Houston, and I swear, these people must think they are sitting on a gold mine! Some of the rates are as much as a mortgage! Plus there are a few that it doesn't matter if you are in for only mother's day out (what we do) for one day or five days a week, it's still the same rate. Puh-lease people!
3. We did end up going to the circus this past weekend, and it was so much fun. I did feel like I was at a starter circus at some times, with people falling off things, dropping flaming items, and standing there like they didn't know what was going on. But, since I did have a two year old with me, and he doesn't know better, we stayed. To him it was magical. The most amazing thing ever. The lights, the flames, the loud sounds, and real elephants. I have never seen his attention span so spot on before. Maybe he can be a circus baby. During intermission was the best. They had animal rides set up, and all sorts of things for parents to spend more money on. It was awesome....and Davis had a ball! He even got to ride a little pony.

4. Are you on instagram? I love, love, love it! I am now also famous, because Sophia Grace is following me. Don't know who she is? Gasp! She's the cute little girl in pink tutus and crows that is on Ellen almost everyday it seems like. She also is on the red carpet a lot 'interviewing' celebrities with her yummy cotton candy. Well, Sophia Grace is following me on instagram!
See? She must think I'm tops, because she is following yours truly. And those other people are also public, so it's okay that you see their names. And speaking of tops, if you follow me on instagram, you will get amazing pictures like this.

I can not for the life of me figure out this stupid top knot bun! And it doesn't help when your husband gets home and just thinks you have a sock in it. Awesome!

Have a great day, everyone

Favorite Recipe-Make My Monday

Mommy’s Sippy Cup 
Happy Monday, everyone!! It's that time again for 'Make My Monday' with yours truly, and the ever so amazing, Kelly! Do you have your recipes ready? I hope so, because I'm always looking for new goodies to cook.
This week, the question is what is your favorite recipe to make when entertaining? Anything from appetizers to dessert.  Can't wait to see what ya got!
*Don't forget to link up and follow both blogs*

This is one of my all time favorite, and super easy, appetizers!!

Baked Caprese Salad

8 to 12 appetizer servings
Baked Caprese Salad 1 loaf baguette, cut into ½-inch thick slices (about 30 to 36 slices)¼ cup extra-virgin olive oilsalt and freshly ground black pepper5 Roma tomatoes, sliced1 ¼ pounds fresh mozzarella, sliced1 bunch fresh basil leaves, stemmed


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Arrange the sliced baguette bread on a baking sheet. Brush with some of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake until the bread is pale golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven. Top each slice of bread with a slice of tomato and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top each slice of tomato with a slice of mozzarella and sprinkle with salt. Return the baking sheet to the oven until the cheese and tomato are warmed, about 5 minutes.

Arrange the toasts on a serving platter. Top each toast with a basil leaf. Using the brush, drizzle the remaining olive oil over the basil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve.

Being from Louisiana, I love anything cajun! I mean, LOVE. I'm surprised that I don't carry a bottle of Tabasco in my purse with me. This is for all my bead throwin, crawfish eating, people! Jambalaya, crawfish pie, Oh me oh my-o!

12 medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and chopped

4 ounces chicken, diced

1 tablespoon Creole seasoning, recipe follows

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/4 cup chopped celery

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

3 bay leaves

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce

3/4 cup rice

3 cups chicken stock

5 ounces Andouille sausage, sliced

Salt and pepper


In a bowl combine shrimp, chicken and Creole seasoning, and work in seasoning well. In a large saucepan heat oil over high heat with onion, pepper and celery, 3 minutes. Add garlic, tomatoes, bay leaves, Worcestershire and hot sauces. Stir in rice and slowly add broth. Reduce heat to medium and cook until rice absorbs liquid and becomes tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. When rice is just tender add shrimp and chicken mixture and sausage. Cook until meat is done, about 10 minutes more. Season to taste with salt, pepper and Creole seasoning.

Hope you guys like my favorites! Can't wait to see yours :)

Have a great week, everyone...and don't forget to come back next week!

Saturday, In The Park....

I just have to say, it is GORGEOUS outside today! The weather couldn't be any better and to add a cherry on top, Davis is in the best mood. Crap...did I jinx it? Hehe :) The past few days have been rather challenging with an ongoing battle with our downstairs neighbors. They don't quite understand that banging on my floor when he is crying won't make it any better. That in fact, this scares the bejeezus out of him, therefore making him SCREAMMMM!!!!! Freaking idiots! But instead, they blare their radio until all hours of the night. Have I mentioned lately I am beyond excited to get out of here in two weeks!??!! Holy Moly! This has been the longest six months ever. Can't wait to start over fresh. Again!

Today has been such a nice and relaxing day. We all got sleep last night (which sure beats us all being up until 4am the previous night) so we are all wonderful! Ahhh!!!! We love going to the grocery store together and picking out our food for the recipes for the week. Yes, we like grocery shopping. I'm sure you think we are odd. Maybe it goes with loving new foods? Loving food in general? I have no idea. So off to Whole Foods we went, to enjoy an awesome meal, and on with our shopping! Davis loves helping, and putting all of the veggies and fruits in the bag and placing them in the cart. I love that he loves helping, and I love teaching him about healthy foods. It's really cute and really puts a smile on my face.

Other than that, we are being lazy bums and watching movies all day. Tomorrow we will either hit up the circus that is in town, if we can still get tickets, or go see the new Dr. Seuss movie! Yay for either :)

Don't forget that 'Make My Monday' linkup is just two days away! Do you have your recipe you are going to share?

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

A Horse, A Little Begging, And A Cook.

Thursday, Thursday. Is it just me, or does this week seem to be dragging on? Maybe it's just me. I feel like I'm counting down the days in excitment until the big move. If you can't tell, I am so ready to get settled. I have like 1000,000000,00000000 ideas that I want to do when we get there. Mostly thanks to pinterest. I think I may need to go to pinterest anonymous. But things like organziation ideas for Davis, the house, the pantry. Oh dear, it's bad. Well, that part is good. My obsessive pinning is bad.

This is a little video clip of this really funny leg thing Davis has been doing lately. I can't tell if he's dancing, or if he thinks he's a horse. Either way, I find it pretty amusing. If you're not family, you most likely won't enjoy it as much as I do. **And I have no idea why it's so small!**

I also want to beg you to follow me through email or RSS feeds. As most of you know, stupid google will no longer be having GFC. Why do they have to do this? No, that is not a rhetorical question. I want answers, Google!! Sheesh. So, I am begging you, as a blogger to a fellow blogger. Please don't leave me. I will curl up in a ball and cry. It will be sad. I may be in the closet again, meaning there will be wine involved. Please save the mascara from running down my face, and simply put in your email, and press enter. I will seriously love you forever. That is all for now, for the begging. Pleeeeeeeeease! Okay, that is all.

And the cutest little pictures of Davis playing at my dad's house last week. They have such great learning toys for him, and it's so cute watching him. He went and got his 'kitchen' toys and set up his own little tea party. It. Was. ADORABLE!!! Espeically because no one prompted this, he just dragged the chairs in the kitchen while we were all hanging out.
You may notice that Pooh bear is wearing a diaper. Yeah, Pooh bear is also potty training.

I also want to urge you to linkup with Kelly & I next Monday, as it is imparitive that you do. For all of you that keep forgetting, (shame on you by the way) you know who you are. hehehe But don't worry, I have a life too, so I'll forgive you. But just this once. :) So get your posts ready, and show some linky link love next 'Make My Monday.'

Have a great day, everyone! Almost the weekend!!!
