What a wonderful Christmas

I am so blessed to have had  such a wonderful Christmas surrounded by so much love. 
It was so much fun to see the little prince on Christmas morning

Also, because I'm still in the Christmas spirit, I am giving this blank frame for FREE!

Enjoy, and you can find more of my goodies at NIGHLON

Habits change over the years...

 I have always loved shopping, especially for others. It wasn't something I ever dreaded doing unless I had to find something like a white button down shirt (which you can never find when you NEED one). I enjoy being out around people and that feeling of success when you find a great deal on something really amazing. I was never one to shop online. That is, until this year!This Christmas, I was more about bargains than finding the absolutely perfect gift!

Enter:! is basically a one-stop search engine for shopping. They have an amazing internal search engine as well as wonderful buyers guides! There's even a coupon section. has an amazing comparison shopper feature that I have never seen before. Its one of those things where you think "why didn't I think of that?" This feature shows the total price after tax, shipping, and everthing and lets you compare THOSE prices. Amazing, right?

Another thing that I absolutely love about is actually one of the main reasons that I never shopped online before. I am huge on spending money locally. I believe we should put our money back into the community when we can. With, we can do this. They have an amazing local shopping feature. Just find the item you want, type in your zip code, and you will see a list of the stores local to you that sell that item. Use this feature to keep money in your community, to test an item before you buy it, and even get it quicker.

Now, it gets fun! Being the mommy to a little boy is getting more and more exciting as the days go by! I realized that it won't be long now until my amazing 15-month-old starts playing sports. As exciting as this is, my wallet isn't so exciting. There will be so much equipment to buy over the years: balls, bats, shoes, cleats, support briefs, clothing, and even band aids. Since I have discovered, I will be able to even throw in a reward of two in addition to the must-have items. Maybe some fun baseball necklaces for boys!

I even had a really genius idea for I could help my dad restore his boat by searching " boat seats clearance " This would help him get the boat fixed soon, which means we would be on the lake sooner. FUN FOR ALL! Who knows what I can accomplish when the website does so much multi-tasking for me. I do believe that my new discovery will pay off.

Let's Fight Cancer

There are so many lives affected each year by cancer. Too many to count. The statistics don't include family members, friends, coworkers, or the random people we say hello to every day!

Its not really something I talk about, but my family has had many losses and hospital visits due to cancer. I truly believe cancer touches every one in one form or another.

No one is granted and exemption. Anyone could go to the doctor tomorrow and be faced with the very real possibility of cancer. Its heart breaking.

Especially now that I'm a mom, I want a cure found in my lifetime. I don't want to see my son face this horrible disease!

We need to all band together and help support the search for a cure!

Letters to Santa

This time of year always makes me think of all the traditions my Mother held tight to every year. These traditions will always have a warm spot in my heart. We always colored an advent calendar; took food to charities; stood outside stores ringing bells; and woke to reindeer tracks and Santa’s muddy boot prints. However, I think what stands out to me the most would be our letters to Santa.

In case you haven’t noticed, my childhood was quite different from most. We have a strict, but very loving Mama who instilled in us many important values. Most of all, she taught us responsibility, manners, respect, gratitude, and thoughtfulness. Things were no different at Christmas time.

Every year, after the tree was put up; the old world Santas were placed around the house; and the Nativity scene placed on the sidebar, it was time to write our letters to Santa. We would sit at the dining room table with homemade hot cocoa and Christmas cookies. Mama would turn on Christmas music and bring out her box of stationary. Inside this box, was the prettiest Christmas paper ever! The best part, it was only used for our letters to Santa. She even had special pencils for us to use.

Now, my mama is a bit different from most when it comes to writing to Santa. There were rules involved. Not only did we have to use our best handwriting, but we also had to actually write a letter- no lists allowed! We were only allowed to ask for one thing. Most of all, we had to show appreciation. Our letters were to include a thank you for last years gifts; a thank you for being nice to so many kids; and what we accomplished that year. I didn’t understand why we did this, but now I am so thankful that my Mama did this. After we wrote our letters, we made Santa a gift- usually an ornament.

As I sit here writing this, I wonder what made her think to do this. Also, I wonder whatever happened to those years of gifts for Santa from three children with an amazing Mother. I have my suspicions that they were either given to family members, the sick and elderly at hospitals or nursing homes, women’s shelters, or even to random charities. I will ask her one day. These are traditions that I will definitely keep going with my own son!

At the following websites, you can find areas to let your children email letters to Santa, as well as receive a letter from Santa!

Our Latest Adventure: Potty Training

So, our little prince is now a whopping 14 months!
Wow, how time flies!
He is walking amazingly well, and has been off the bottle for a while. 
He also tries to take his diaper off when he is wet....
So I came to a conclusion:
time is upon us!

Here is the plan:
we take him to potty A LOT!
His potty plays music, so that's an added bonus
the really great surprise that Nana got him: Hershey's kisses after he uses the potty!

Its been 6 days, and he is doing surprisingly well.
For the past 2 days, the only accidents have been at naptime and night time.
I'm quite impressed!

Seeing how much he is growing, I cannot believe how tiny and fragile he was.
It makes me think of a paper I was given by the doctor, while I was pregnant.
This is what it said:

A Newborn's Conversation With God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven, I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy," God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. You will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again, the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweetest words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?" God said, "Your angel will defend you , even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name!"
God said, "You will simply call her MOMMY."

This was the most amazing thing for a young lady who was so unsure of how successful of a Mother she would be to hear. I knew nothing about kids, but this helped me know that I would always figure it out.
Even if I couldn't, our angels would help us!

Testing Diet Food: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Satisfying Selections

As you all know, dieting is a problem for me.

This may be because I'm a new mom, because I am easily distracted, because I am lazy, or it could simply be because I love chocolate!

Who knows, but it doesn't really matter, because dieting is one thing I really am bad at!

Recently though, I was given the opportunity to test the new Weight Watchers: Smart Ones frozen Meals. These are called Satisfying Selections. The are larger than most diet entrees, even including larger pieces of meat! 

These meals come packages in a bag so that you can either cook them on the stove top or even steam them in the microwave. Pretty handy!

My favorite part: With the amazing taste, you wouldn't believe they have fewer than 400 calories!
If you are a Weight Waters Lady, that is between 8 and 10 points!

They even have 25 or more grams of protein, which is pretty handy for chasing around a toddler!

The varieties include: 
Sesame Chicken
Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo
Ziti with Meatballs and Cheese
Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese
Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

That's actually a decent range for a new line!

I went with Sesame Chicken (because I have an unhealthy love of it) and Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese (because I am a picky eater and I don't like Alfredo or Teriyaki- I know, I'm a strange, strange lady)

I was actually really impressed with the taste of these meals. 

Another reason that I'm not a good dieter is this: 
I see diet food and I run away.... 

Once again, this is because I am a picky eater.

I do, however, see myself picking these up when I pick up frozen dinners for the family!

These are definitely meals you should not run away from screaming!
They are definitely at least worth giving them a try!

I am now willing to even give the Alfredo and Teriyaki a try...
If I don't like it, I'll just give it to the Knight, he won't know that its diet!

I've been slack


I had a slap in the face this week.
I've always hated weighing, but i did it.
I was slapped in the face with a 20 pound weight gain since the prince was born.
I haven't weighed this much in quite a while, 
and I had taken great pride in keeping my weight level, even if it were still too much.
I now have to lose a whopping 100 pounds.

This irritated me so much that its time for extreme measures.

I look forward to McRibs all year long, so that's what I had for lunch today...
but that was my last!


So far, here's the plan:
  1. One cup of coffee in the morning with splenda.
  2. One cup of coffee in the afternoon with splenda.
  3. Water the rest of the day.
  4. Ankle weights go on when I finish my morning coffee and come off when I put the monster to bed.
  5. Walk with the monster everyday.
  6. Find an exercise program I can enjoy doing, so that I will stick with it.
  7. Figure the amount of calories to limit myself to everyday, along with fat and sugar intake.
  8. Find a diet tracker to use on my computer. Place the icon where I will see it when I turn it on.
  10. Thats the plan for now.
This is something I have to do, so I cannot lose track or give up.
I will keep my blog updated on my progress.

FALL: Noun; 1. Also known as Autumn;  2.  The season between Summer and Winter; 3. The months of September, October, and November; 4. Back to school,  Halloween, and Thanksgiving; 5. The best time of Year.

This is not the actual definition of Fall, but It is how I would describe it!

So many wonderful things in life happen in the fall. My husbands birthday, my little prince's birthday, HALLOWEeN, Thanksgiving, apples, PUMPKINS, the leaves change, trips to cherokee. The list just goes on!

Family seems to become more important to everyone, people get nicer (then winter comes, and the world is bitter again).

One of the true treasures of fall is being able to be outside in the crisp autumn air and enjoy everything. Just the other day, The LP and I were walking around picking red leaves for his Nana!

Sitting on the pourch enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee is pure joy!

My Favorite Fall Activities:

Picking colorful leaves and inventing crafts for them

Decorating for Halloween


Trips to Cherokee


Watching Horror Movies

Watching Christmas Movies

Enjoying Family


Making Pumpkin Butter


This year is special-- I'm carving a pumpkin for the first time EVER

What do you do to embrace all the wonder of FALL?

KID CUISINE: Don't Feed These to Your Kid!

About a week ago, we all had grilled lemon pepper chicken for dinner. 
I wasn't sure if the little prince could eat it, so I got him one of these: 
I heat the meal, and think: This will be something fun!
He would not eat it!
Wouldn't touch it!

I break apart the chicken nuggets, and they were nothing but breading!

I was so annoyed!
Needless to say, he ate the lemon pepper chicken,


The really bad part- I ate these as a kid...
and they were nothing like this one!

The Beauty My Mother Taught Me

“Audrey Hepburns Beauty Tips”
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. 
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

This poem was not actually written by Audrey Hepburn, it was one of her favorites, and happens to be one of the last ones she read to her children before she passed away.

I look all around me and see what the world is, BEAUTIFUL is not always how I would describe it. I see all the violence and greed and it makes me wonder what kind of a world my son has been born into. I hear stories about children being murdered and justice never comes. People are beaten to death and justice never comes. Then, a disaster strikes and the world bans together. I'm glad to see this happens, just wish it didn't take a disaster to accomplish this.

I will strive to teach my son and any future children that this is true beauty. The most beautiful person is one who puts others first.

First, let me say that I love and adore my husband. He is an amazing man and father, but sometimes I want to throw the xbox controller at him! I recently read a statistic that 15 percent of divorces are caused by the XBOX! aaaahhhh! I wonder if he would know it was me if it mysteriously broke?? Just a thought! As I write this post, my dear husband is playing a game.....

just saying....

Update on Supermomdom

*update to a previous post*

I have just been reflecting on how lucky I have been to be a stay at home mom, even if only for a year. My husband and I have recently made the decision for me to go back to work. It's quite bittersweet, but I know that it is for the best! Maybe it will enable me to become a better mother and wife.

My Journey to SuperMomDom

When my little prince was just a couple months old, I had a particular day where i didn't think I was ever going to get it all done. I had laundry that needed to be finished, a room that needed to be cleaned, a husband who needed attention, and a baby who just wanted mommy. I said to my husband, I'm supposed to be good at this, I'm a mom, shouldn't it come naturally. I said I'm the multi-tasker, the one who thrives on stress, and now it just makes me crazy. I told him that I am supposed to be supermom. He very sweetly told me that I wasn't and we moved on. I still had a nagging feeling that I wasn't doing enough. This feeling stuck with me, and I never have really moved on from feeling like I should be supermom.

My amazing husband brought me Mother's Day surprises home from work friday, and with it was something I will forever cherish. This card means the world to me, and I don't think I will ever forget it, and I will forever cherish it! It was just what I needed in my beautifully imperfect life!

It said: 

For My Wife
conquering a heaping pile of laundry...
whipping up a meal in the blink of an eye...
being in two or more places at once (well, almost)...
remembering all the important stuff in our lives...
and still finding the time for a little one-on-one.. 
she's... SUPERMOM

I'm so lucky to be married to a real life superhero like you

this was just amazing!!!

More Adventures in DIY Hair

SO.... I'm a FREAKIN GENIUS... or so I like to tell myself. One of my latest endeavors could be considered not of this category!
I'm the kind of girl who had a standing appointment with a particular hair stylist ever so many weeks. SHE is a genius. She always knows what to do with my hair, and it always looks so amazing.
Lately, I have been trying to turn into a frugal fashionista!
This means... I decided to cut my own hair! Lets just say, I was a bit nervous. For the sake of my family and my dear husband's sanity, I did it anyway

I googled how to cut my own hair... I found some pretty great videos and advice. I proceeded with caution. With a little help from my Mother-in-Law with getting it even, I managed to give myself an angled bob. I am happy with the style and cut, but I learned why my hair stylist uses a razor when trimming my ends. It lays much better when the ends are razored.

What I learned from this: 1. I can do anything with the help of google 2. I have much more patience for hair stylists now.
Will I do it again: HECK YES!!!

June is always so crazy for me. It was the start of summer for so many years, but as I've grown older, it has begun to entail so much more. Working at the bookstore, it was time to rearrange students' schedules and work up promotions for summertime travelers. Now, it entails so much more.
For some reason, as if June wasn't crazy enough, it tends to be when all the chaos piles in. We run around like crazy trying to accomplish things. Trips to Cherokee and to the lake are the norm, but this year it has been a bit different. 
June starts off with MY BIRTHDAY! Yay- I turned 27! Being the first weekend, it also includes our tradition of visiting Cherokee, NC on the first weekend. This was fun, the Little Prince enjoyed getting feathers, pictures with indians, and playing in the fountain. 
On to the next, its the Royal Couple's ANNIVERSARY! What a fun weekend, we grilled out, spent time together, and laughed so much. The interesting part was eating our wedding cake, as is tradition on a first anniversary! We ended up pretending to eat it, just for the pictures!
Then, came Father's Day. Just a weekend of relaxing, and eating buffalo chicken sandwiches, with my mother-in-law's special recipe! What a good weekend, hanging out with the family and relaxing. What could be better.
Our wonderful month of June ended with a fabulous visit with family from Canada. They only get to visit every few years, so it was a nice treat. I finally got to meet the Canada family, somehow I have always missed them. The Little Prince enjoyed playing with his cousins, and It was a wonderful visit.
To sum it all up, June was a crazy month, but we made amazing memories. Now, I can get to blogging regularly. June is so crazy 

Thursday, June 30, 2011


With everything going on this week; trying to get organized, doing my everyday stuff, and getting ready from the reveal from Carolina Paranormal Investigators, I had absolutely no intentions of washing our comforter until at least Monday. The Little Prince had other plans!
I was changing his diaper and then putting him down for his nap. He decided that instead of lying there and letting me change it without a problem, he would rather crawl around! The LP wriggled out of my grip and crawled around on my bed, stinky butt and all....
Looks like I will be washing a comforter after all! At least I know that the Knight will get a laugh out of this while he is eating his spaghetti tonight!

Reorganizing Life

Little did I know when I wrote my last post that I would be re-organizing EVERYTHING! This includes my blog. Please bear with me while I figure out what will work for me! I promise it won't be maniacal very long!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

My Crazy Beautiful Life

Well, to put it mildly, life has been crazy. I have so many things on my to do list, and I just can't seem to get it knocked down any. So, I have decided that my first priority (besides the knight in shining armor and the little prince) is to GET ORGANIZED!
I'm slowly getting this done, and organizing my goals [one of which is to update my blog more often], and creating MY ULTIMATE PLANNER. YAY!!!!
This is very important because I was always the most organized person I knew, until I got pregnant. Pregnant brain or LAZINESS? probably laziness! I promise to share my progress!

Time to Get Crackin

My LITTLE PRINCE will be 9 months in 10 days. This means that I have less than 3 months to plan his AMAZING 1st birthday party. Of course, the theme will be prince! I'm thinking he should recieve a copy of THE LITTLE PRINCE as his special gift. There is so much to do. Step 1, find a party planning website. Step 2, learn to bake a lemon cake. Step 3, send invitations. and so it begins... wish me luck!

Adventures in DIY Hair

So, naturally, my hair is very dark brown, almost black. So, naturally, I wanted to go blonde.... fun!

One day, my MIL and I were watching our husbands garden, and truth be told, we were getting bored... which is NEVER a good thing! I mentioned something about going blonde, and she said follow me, which, agan, is NEVER a good thing. We go into the house and she hands me two boxes of platinum blonde hair dye. I'm thinking, my hair isn't very long, this should work.. NOT! I dye my hair, and its still brown, lighter, but still brown.

We go to the dreaded WalMart and look at hair dye. We find a really awesome product that is supposed to take it from black to blonde... AWESOME. I go home and dye my hair. I leave it on for the maximum time of 90 minutes... this should do it. NOT! Its blonde, but a dark blonde. If I'm gonna go blonde, I want to be BLONDE!

Frustrated, I get on the internet, which usually doesn't turn out too good for me, but this time it did. I find directions on bleaching hair with peroxide. Wahoo. I make the mixture of half water, and half peroxide and commence to spraying. Left it on for 25 minutes (it can really damage your hair,) rinse, and condition. It is a little lighter. I do sun-in for a few days, and then peroxide again. I continue this pattern until i used this mixture about 5 times. Getting tired of this, I decide to just use peroxide and that worked a lot better. I did this twice. Finally, It is about the color I want....
My roots are showing REALLY BAD!!!!
Even though, I like the color that it finally is, I have learned my lesson. If I want to go blonde again, I will strip it first or go to a salon!

Crazy Week

Life has been a bit crazy lately, and I have been super busy with the little prince and other perfect life things. I will get caught up!

Can I Do It This Time?

So... I've decided once again to try and lose weight. I think that the reason that I have yet to succeed is that I have never had anyone/ anything to hold me accountable. By blogging, I'm hoping to be held accountable for what I do/ don't do.

I have several reasons to want to lose weight. Some of which are normal, health issues; however, others are more personal and vain. I want to be healthy, for my son and my husband. I don't want to develop the health issues as I age that so many in my family have. As far as the more vain reasons, I want to wear a bikini. I have never worn a bikini, and I want to and feel good in it.

I will make a plan and post it on my blog... hopefully I will succeed!

Things I Should Do

So, I wanted some change in my appearance, and apparently going from almost black to blonde wasn't enough of a change. So, I have some projects I want to get started on. Some are just a matter of getting it done, while others are really going to be a work in progress for a while.

  • Take my hair to a platinum/ white blonde
  • Put some crazy color streaks in it
  • Pierce my lip
  • lose some weight
  • Cut my bangs
  • Get another tattoo

I am going to right about these things here so that I will be held accountable. If I don't put it in writing, I will never do it!

Procrastination: My Favorite Past-time

SO.... I've always been the world's greatest procrastinator. This is not a theory, It is a fact. If there is anything whatsoever that I need to do, I will find anything possible to do instead, until the very last moment. With this comes my worst enemy: THE INTERNET!
For example, my Little Prince's first birthday is four months from today! I know, It seems like a lot of time, but given how fast the last eight have gone, I really dont think that four months is really going to be all that long. The only thing that i'm realy worried about is that I DON"T KNOW HOW TO BAKE! I know, I know, I could just buy a cake, but I'd rather not. I'd rather make myself go crazy and stick to what my mother and mil have done, and make the LP's first birthday cake. Not only am I going to make his cake, but decorate it as well (nothing but the best for my Little Prince). AND THATS NOT ALL... It has to be a lemon cake!!!! WTF am I thinking.

Back to the procrastination part:...
What I should be doing: Learning to bake
What I am actually doing: Blogging

The worst part about this is that not only am I blogging, but I wasn't sure how to spell procrastinating, so I decide to go to GOOGLE and look it up... and I can't just stop at finding the spelling, I have to click on PROCRASTINATION SITES... and find "my favorite procrastination sites" ... and I click to see these... I'm DOOMED...

Everyday Life

Sometimes everyday life gets to me, it seems like i get up and run. By the time i am caught up with everything i have to do, something else comes along that i have forgotten to do, or its a new issue. Today, i overslept, finally got us out of the house to go to the store, did the shopping, get home, unpack everything and sit down. Just then the little prince wants to be played with. I play with him, lay him in his bed, and sit down. My husband brings me a soda. The throat sighs! It may be hectic at times, but I LOVE MY LIFE.

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Wahoo! Mobile blogging... Thats what im talking about!


I've always had outlets for my not so creative energy, but lately those don't seem to work. Being a mother and a wife, it has become hard to find time to make jewelry, to sew, and to do many things that I have always found enjoyable. On top of this, I am a geek, so I needed to find a way to combine technology with an outlet. BLOGGING it seems is the answer. Here I am going to document the many journies i am going through right now. One of which, is learning to blog. I have no idea what I'm doing, so this is going to be a learning process. Thanks in advance for following along!

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


Today I had a breakthrough... being a new mom and a new wife, life has definately changed in the last year. The thing that annoys me the most is that no one seems to care what i think these days. No one seems to care if I'm hurt, or mad, or sad, or happy, or in a daze. I cannot stand this change in life. I hate to be ignored; so, I decided that it is time for a BLOG!!! I can say what i want, and i'm sure someone will listen. Even if no one does, it's still an outlet. So... to my wonderful family that i adore, I'm doing this because I LOVE YOU!

**note: i know that my husband and in-laws, mom, and other family care, sometimes it just feels like no one does**
♥ another note: thank you my wonderful mother-in-law for letting me vent to you and for giving me this idea ♥
