We went to a friends birthday this weekend with our other good friends, Lance and Sue. It was Monte Carlo style and cocktail attire which wasn't the easiest thing for me to do being that I am 7 months pregnant... Lucky for me I found a dress at Gap maternity that worked out ok! This party was so much fun! We saw a lot of friends, ate yummy food and dessert, then they had a casino set up to play all night at... When we got to the party we got a little card that we could trade in for $1500 in chips, then you just play and play for fake chips/money... Every $100 you won you could trade in for a raffle ticket and they did a drawing at the end... I happened to win a Ipod touch screen which I am pretty happy about! They were also giving away a flat screen t.v. dang, so close!

Tomorrow MOCKSTAR BABY is selling the cutest nativity set that I have seen in a long time! They will be on for one day only(Thanksgiving day), you will definitely want to check them out!
Fisher Price has similar ones available but I like Mockstar's version way better and they are a better price for sure! Only $15.00... Another great thing about them is that they are compatible with all of your Fisher Price play sets.
I love that this set allows baby Jesus to come out of the manger... I remember always wishing the baby Jesus would come out with all of my mom's nativity sets.
Super cute nativity for your kids at Christmas and you will not have to worry about your fragile nativity being broke.
(In addition, if you order one of these sets tomorrow and type TABBY in the "shipping instructions" box, they will ship it to you for free!!!)
My gift to you!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.


This is funny to me! Did this happen to anyone? Brad thinks it has happened to us! LOL

Does anyone Else's child come home EVERY SINGLE DAY with clothes looking like this?? I have seriously considered buying only black for Jake lately. Does anyone have any stain tips?? REALLY... Nearly all of his clothes are stained and ruined the first time he wears them.

I ask him what he is doing and he tells me playing sports at recess and after school... How can I get mad at a boy for doing boy things?? Oh well... Your laundry secrets welcome!


My Brother and his wife welcomed their first baby into the world a few days ago! She weighed in at 6lbs 6oz. Jake and I went to see her and oh boy was she cute! Jake told me after we left that he just wanted to "eat her up!" He is very excited for our new baby, he asks almost daily when she will be here and then informs me she is taking a long time.


Just another one of my Martha Stewart moods! Some burp cloths with a signature homemade touch!


I was felling like Martha the other day, so I decided to go to Roberts crafts and stock up on a few supplies for some ideas I had floating around in my head. I saw something similar to these on my friends blog and that got my brain moving... Thanks Kacey!

.68 cents

How can you pass things up at .68 cents?? That's right you all heard me!!!! Even I can afford that! Does anyone need a personal shopper?

Our little girl will be named Millie, its official and has been from the beginning!
This is the wonderful woman I am naming my little girl after! Gramma Millie. She is the sweetest most wonderful grandmother a girl could have and little Millie will be proud to share her name! I love you Gramma Millie!


My little chef in training! Jake always wants to help me cook! He is going to be a good little husband and daddy one day!


I am not sure why I have not been blogging about all the amazing deals I have been finding for our little girl??? But believe me, I could dedicate this whole blog to my shopping sprees!! Can I just tell you all how much I love my one day a week job at Gap!! I work to fuel my habit! I get first dibs on all markdowns and returns and then of course my discount!!

Someone returned this a few days ago and our Gap never carried it, therefore we price killed it, which means we marked it super low... $3.97 then we had an additional 25% off going on in kids that could be combined with our 30% employee discount!!! You do the math!! Regular price $34.99. OHHH YAAAA! And it is the perfect size for the 4th of july month! Red/white and blue!


Jake came home from school today with a piece of paper on his shirt that said " I voted." He then asked, "Mommy, who did you vote for?" I didn't vote, so I asked him what his sticker meant... He then told me that there are 2 people who are trying to be president and he voted for "McCain, Not Roccobama." I do not know why but I got a lot of humor out of my 6 year old telling me what was going on in the world. I have been really impressed with his teachers teaching methods and I think she is doing a phenomenal job with the kids! Then he told me how the election results would be on and wondered if he could stay up longer to watch who wins? The funny thing about Jake is that I am pretty sure he knows nothing about any of this.. It is simply because he chose someone he wanted to win and due to his competitive nature he just wanted his team to win. The other funny thing to me is that Brad and I really have never had a political discussion in front of Jake, so it is funny that he decided on his own who he thought the best candidate would be.... Then he told me they were talking about who everyone voted for at recess and some kid came up to him and tackled him to the ground for choosing McCain... Little brat(But don't worry Jake said he fought back and made the kid cry) ... Just something funny to think about!
BTW Jake was really upset with the results. lol

AHHH! The sweet feel of fall!! I am so excited for the weather... I woke up this morning and I just knew it was cooler and finally fall before I even peeked out the window! I LOVE the smell in the air! I was getting really sick of the perfect weather.. I know that sounds silly, but I have nothing to wear. I have so many sweaters and long sleeves for the pregnancy and have been unable to wear anything. I have been pushing my regular clothes/shirts to the limit and need to retire them:)

Jake went from wanting to be a scary skeleton at his school carnival to a cute Indian to trick or treat! Oh well, the boy could not make up his mind..... He needed a taste of both I guess!
