in love

I have to admit I am officially addicted to Etsy and to these super cute Tutus that such talented people make.

I will be ordering Caroline one of these from this site sometime soon. Stay tuned for pictures of Caroline twirling around in a tutu.
Is anyone else out there addicted to Etsy?

6 hours out

Here are some pictures that I took about 7 o'clock this evening outside of my house. Hurricane Ike is about 6 hours out.

Hurricane Ike

Well, it is the evening before the storm and we are waiting with much anticipation like everyone else. Hopefully, it will be just a bunch of hype. The kids can't wait to use their flashlights and play games, however if we never lose power that will be fine with me. Here are some pictures of us preparing for the storm and just chilling around the house.
(Please excuse Jake's hat. He is really not that ghetto!!)

Ike is suppose to make landfall around 1 am, which will be Jake's 5th birthday. So, just in case we don't have power for awhile.... Happy Birthday Jake!!!!! We surprised him this morning with his favorite, donuts. Which do you like more...the crazy hair or the crazy eyes?

And here are the boys jumping on our sofa. As you can tell we are bored and our furniture rules have gone out the window. So, we unleashed the tigers.....

Peace Out!!!

tag...your it!

I have been tagged by my new friend Sada. Here are 7 funky things about me.

1. I love chicken salad sandwiches!!!!!!! My friend Karla swears that one day I will turn into a chicken. When I was pregnant with Caroline I used to eat 3-4 sandwiches in one setting. My doc tried to tell me to cool it to one sandwich and an apple. I didn't listen and maybe that is why Caroline was 9 pounds!
2. When I am nervous I say "Just kidding" or "Just joking".
3. I get super duper nervous when I play board games. My heart starts beating fast, my palms get sweaty and I lose any common sense I might have had.
4. I used to be a competitive figure skater.
5. I used to teach ice skating lessons when I was in high school.
6. I can't sew. However, I really want to learn. Just thinking about it makes my hands get sweaty and my heart beating faster!!!!!
7. I have many dreams. BIG DREAMS.... I would like to one day open up my own bakery and just serve cupcakes. Maybe one day become really good at taking pictures and have my own photography studio. Write a recipe book with Dusty and have it published. Last but not least, have our own family restaurant and have Dusty be the chef.
Hey, A Girl Can Dream Can't She?!?!?

I now tag my blogging friends Chrissy, Mandy and Melissa. Can't wait to hear about you ladies.

Who is 'SHE"?

The other day Dusty bought some AXE body wash. On the back of the bottle this is what is says:

Want skin she can't wait to get her hands on?
AXE smoothing shower scrub with cactus milk exfoliates your skin
leaving it smooth and energized so she'll keep coming back for more.
What I want to know is....
Who is SHE? And why did SHE not clean my house, scrub the toilets, wash a load of laundry, mow the grass, and feed the dog?
So, yeah! Who is SHE and where did SHE go???
