Breaking news, WOOHOO Its me!!!!

I'm finally feeling like myself again! WOOOOHOOO I'm soooo glad and I know my sweet family is!

I cant tell you how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband, Unfortunately I have been blessed with hormonal migraines! YAY me!!! I average about 1 a week, I absolutely HATE them, they put me out completely, they ruin days, they and leave me feeling helpless. Fortunately I have Jon, who takes over and picks up EVERYTHING!  Ive gained 5 pounds which I was surprised to hear, because I have done nothing but eat since the day I found out I'm pregnant!  I'm now 17 weeks, and have a decent sized baby bump! We are so excited to find out the sex of the baby next Tuesday, I cant wait to give the baby and name. I have had several people tell me that they think its a girl. So I have started referring to it as a girl, either way I wont be disappointed!

Its all so surreal that I'm actually pregnant again! This time just feels so different! I'm sooo excited and so nervous at the same time! I cant believe that I'm starting all over, more first and lots and lots of memories to make!

We have been talking about the new baby a lot  with Landon, of course he doesn't understand  yet but If you ask him were Mommy's baby is he will lift up my shirt and say baby awww.... baby and point to my bump, then he lifts his up and points to his tummy and says baby!!! LOL its soooo cute!!! He growing like a weed and amazing me everyday!!! He has started going to half day preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays! He loves it! One of my favorite things is opening up his book bag when I get home to see his sweet art work that he did for the day!! I'm def one of those moms that wants to keep everything! I tend to put sentimental value on everything! SOOO Ill have a refrigerator covered with fancy priceless art work!! 



Sooo I leave you with that for the day!! I have lots more to share!!! I think I'm back and I'm sooo excited!!!!

Hey Yall!!! HEY!!!!

I know I keep saying this But I really miss you guys! I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, DOOOO!!!!!!

For some reason it has been so hard for me to bring myself to blog or even turn on the computer! I rarely sign on to facebook, or blogger, or anything!!! I'm missing out on so much and missing blogging milestone in my life in Landon's life and pregnancy! I'm Hoping and praying that I snap out of this awful funk SOON!!!

My sweet husband turned 30 on Tuesday, We had and amazing weekend together, Just the 3 of us! We went to a local amusement park called Tweetsie Railroad. This park has been around for ages. Jon and I grew up going. Its based on the Wild West , Cowboys and Indians and trains! We had sooooooo much fun and Landon loved it! Ill give you more details and pictures later!

 I'm soo looking forward to an uneventful weekend ! I plan catching up on blog reading playing with Landon, and maybe changing this blog! I need a change here!

I hope that you all have a great weekend planned! Ill be back I promise!!!!!!

Shhhhhhhh........ Landon has a SECRET!

Yeap Landon has a Secret! 

A Very Special BIG Secret!!!

One that hes been keeping for quite awhile!!!

He is sooooo excited to tell you!!!!!
 
That
 
Hes

GOING TO BE A


BIG BROTHER!!!

We are pregnant! I cant believe how fast it happened! We talked about it one day, and BOOOOOM! I'm pregnant! Perfect Timing I guess! I knew very early on, I guess it was just a feeling or a hunch!
We couldn't be more excited! I'm 9 weeks and 4 days! So its still early, prayers for a healthy baby are welcome!! Our due date is March 24th, feels like forever away, but I know how fast this time can fly!

This pregnancy has been quit a bit harder on me then the last. I have had 24 hour nausea and indigestion, that NEVER goes away, I never get sick, which I think that I would feel better if I could! Eating is NOT a problem, I could probably eat 24/7 if I would let my self, In fact I feel better when I'm eating! I have been exhausted , I crash every night at 9:00 right after Landon goes to bed!
I feel huge and I'm sooooo bloated, my clothes are already getting tighter!!
 
I'm trying my best to enjoy every second which has been VERY difficult considering how awful I have felt. But all I have to do is look at Landon and I remember very quickly that every mininute of this prgnancy is worth it!
 
Im sooooo excited that Landon gets to be a big brother!

Fill In the blank Friday!

Want to join? Click HERE!!! Its lots of fun!
1.   One of my happiest moments ever was       Man, I can think of a few, first would be the day Landon was born, there was soooo much excitement that day, having my family and closet friends there to welcome the new baby, was so awesome, and then meeting that sweet baby for the first time there is no other feeling like it! Next would be my wedding day, again, having everyone I loved with me and marring the man of my dreams, it doesn't get much better then that!  .


2.  Summer is wedding season and weddings are   Are great, but can make you stress out,like finding the perfect dress to wear! But seriously, I love watching people commit to each other, I just LOVE ,LOVE!!! .

3.  This summer     Has been so much fun, doing new things with Landon. Its been soooooo HOT!!!! YIKES!!!!! .

4.  My summer food of choice has been  Lots of things! Anything that was picked from the Garden tomatoes and squash and all kinds of yummy things! Ive also fallen in love with smoothies yum!!!!.

5.  My summer uniform has been     Capri's and tanks and flip flops and sun dresses!  .

6.  If I could spend the entire summer in one location I would choose     A beach! Any beach will be just fine, as long as there is a nice ocean breeze and sunshine!  .

7.  My summer anthem is       Nothing gets me more pumped up for summer time then beach music! Under the board walk, sitting on the dock of the bay  all the beach music oldies, makes me long for summer days!

We are soo looking forward to this weekend! We are going to Jon's dads house to meet some of my mother-in-laws family from Canada! We have met though face book and pictures but we are finally getting to meet in person! We are going to attempt a beach day tomorrow, but with 100 degree temps, it might be difficult to enjoy the day!!! Oh well we will make the best of it!! I hope you guys are having a great week! What are your plans for the weekend!?

Dear Landon,


Dear Landon,

You amaze me! It’s impossible not to smile when your around, your whole face just lights up, that big toothy smile melts my heart! Its so Hard to believe that You will be 20 months old on Saturday!

Your dad and I can not get enough of you, we are constantly telling you how much you are loved, I'm pretty sure you get annoyed by all the loving I give you! I'm constantly covering you in kisses, but  you never want to return them. You shock me when you decide  to give me one back. Your don’t have time ,your on the GOOOOOOOOO all the time!!!

Your vocabulary is becoming ridiculous! Your dad and I just stop and look at one another when we hear new words come out of your mouth! With our help you can already count to ten,  and sing part of your ABC's . Some of your favorite words are Mommy, Daddy, Oh Man, Sit (which sounds a lot like another word)  Outside, Shoe, Mickey, Just to name a few! Everyday its something new! You LOVE to sing and dance, we often have living room dance party's, which are actually pretty fun and a really good work out for your out of shape mommy! You have recently Got into books, You are constantly bringing us a one, and you will sit still for the first few pages and then your off on a new adventure!!!

This Summer has been full of new and exciting things!! Beach trips and boat rides and lots and lots of pool time!!!  We just recently switched you from you crib to your toddler bed!!! Ohhhh that new found freedom, which you have actually done really good with, nap time is pretty difficult but at bed time you are so worn out from the day, that you sleep like a rock! I really just cant believe how fast you are growing!

Your so tall and so Handsome! I love you more then I ever thought was possible. How in the world did I get so lucky!  I love you so much Landon Cole!!

Love Always and Forever,
Mom

Diet Dew!!! The UN-BESTFRIEND

OOOOOHHHH How I love the sweet tasty goodness of my beloved Mt. Dew. Its became one of my BEST friends!!! Its refreshing flavor, its perfect amount of caffeine that, just revs me up in the A.M. AWWWWW........... I can taste it now!!!!!

I just love this stuff and I have tried so hard to cut back, but time and time again. I find myself rushing to the fridge at work and at home to grab an Ice Cold dew. I have no will power against the stuff. It calls my name, it knows my weakness's, its an evil little monster!!!



I really thought I was doing something good for myself, when I switched from regular soft drinks to diet. I can remember how hard it was for me to switch, I hated diet, now I cant stop!!!! The last 2 days, I have heard 2 times how awful diet drinks are for you, of coarse I have heard that artificial sweeteners can increase your risk if cancer, there isn't much that we consume this day in time that doesn't have a warning that it can increase your chances of cancer.  2 days in a row I have heard 2 separate studies!!!
A study presented at a American Diabetes Association meeting this week shows that drinking diet soda is associated with a wider waist in humans. And a second study shows that aspartame -- an artificial sweetener in diet soda -- actually raises blood sugar in mice prone to diabetes.

I got my Info here!

WHAT????!!!! I'm trying to loose this baby fat not keep it on!!! No wonder I always feel like my stomach is big and bloated, because it is!!!!!!!!!!!! Because I always have my favorite can in my hand!!!!

Soooooo with this said, I'm going to say a bitter sweet good bye to my beloved diet. dew and all other diet drinks. You have been quite the sneaky back stabber, making believe that you were some what good for me. All the while you were helping me to keep this baby fat and making me feel awful about myself!
Its going to be sooo hard to say good bye, But I must move on to healthier alternatives!!
 Christina @ My Silly Life! kicked you to the curb, I can do it toooooo!!!!!
Good BYE Diet Mt. Dew!!!

So friends have you kicked the habit? what helped you to stop and move on!?

4th Of July!

I LOVE the 4th of July, its one of my Favorite Holidays, I  have Soooooo many wonderful memories of the 4th of July!

Growing up, every 4th of July was spent at my great aunts house, with 50 or 60  family members, it was a family reunion of sorts, I remember running around, playing until I couldn't go any more, Hamburger's and hot dogs, yummy cakes and watermelon. Sparklers were always a highlight followed by our very own private fireworks show, over the years unfortunately those get togethers have fizzled out, but I'm left with fun memories!
Doesn't Landon looked thrilled ??
 Ohhh and the parades are sooo much fun, everyone is excited with anticipation to see whats next, waving American flags and everyone in there red, white and blue! Last year was Landon's first Parade he was sooo excited and he just waived his little flag! This year I'm thinking we may have to stop him from darting into the street YIKES!!!
I'm soooo excited!!!

 I Love the Yummy cookouts with all of your favorite summer time foods, followed by beautiful firework displays. I'm really looking forward to seeing it all though Landon's eyes!
Happy 4th to you!!!

Missing him!

Jon and I have been apart before, a day here and there, and I hate it so much!
He left last night for the Most AWESOME youth camp in the World, its Called Big Stuf, Its held in Panama City Beach Florida! its AMAZING!!!!!!  The energy and Worship is soooo intense 5 looooong hot days of worshiping God with thousands of other people, with a beautiful beach back drop, it really doesn't get much better!


I'm sooooo stinking heart broken that I'm not there this year. My  manager wouldn't let me have this Friday off! WHAT???? No I cant come back a day early! I'm even more sad that Jon's gone, for 5 LOOOOOOOONG days! AWWWWW...... I have been on the verge of tears all day, I had no Idea it would be  this hard for me!!! Geeeeeezzzzz Heather, he'll be back and its  not like you can't call, text and tweet each other 24/7!!!!

Absence make the heart grow fonder right!? He hasn't even been gone a day and I feel like its been a year! I was talking to Christina today, about all of this, and I came to a conclusion that God  is teaching me something here, and I just have to be open and ready for the lesson. The best part of it all is I get lots and lots and lots of Landon and mommy time!!!

Awwwwwwhhhhh. I'm like this little love sick puppy or high school girl!!!! Silly silly!!!
