for all of the OCD bloggers out there...

I found a great website that has printable forms that you can use to help you get organized for Christmas. You can print forms, dividers, etc. and make your own notebook/planner...just in time for the holidays!

This might be one of my favorite things I've ever found...I love "To Do Lists".

if you're a taylor swift fan, you will probably want to stop reading now...

Taylor Swift - Entertainer of the Year? Really?

I watched the CMA's last night and I was stunned not to mention disgusted, when they announced Entertainer of the Year. You have got to be kidding me! Taylor Swift shouldn't have even been nominated for this award, much less win!! Am I the only person in the world that realizes that she cannot sing?

And shouldn't she have at least headlined her own tour to be able to be nominated for this category?

Happy Halloween!

It has been way too long since I've been on here, but I just haven't really had anything interesting to tell and we've been going out of town a good bit on the weekends...lame excuse I know, but it's true! I'm going to be catching up on everyone's blogs this weekend I promise....other than going to a friend's house tonight for a little get together, I plan on having a nice lazy, relaxing weekend.

I'm sure I've told you all this before, but I suck at shopping....especially for special occasions! We have a wedding to go to next Saturday at 4:00pm and I'm not sure what is appropriate (we live in the South).....anyone have any ideas?

I hope you all have a Happy Halloween and get lots of treats!

what would Emily Post say?

Can someone tell me when it became acceptable to post a picture of your baby the second it has come out of you?

I am not even kidding.

I logged into Facebook the other day and one of my "friends" (maybe not much longer, I might be deleting her) had posted, as her status update, a picture of her baby right after it had been born. And I do mean right after. The baby had not been cleaned off and you could even see the mother's legs in the picture....propped up in the stirrups.

never give up hope....

I just read this story that I saw on the Yahoo! home page:

I cried when I read the part about the sad!

How crazy is this? I hope more information comes out, because I wonder if they have held her captive even as an adult and if not, why didn't she come forward sooner? It almost sounded like she wouldn't have even come forward now if her kidnapper had not been called in on something else.

My heart goes out to her parents and the parents of anyone who have lost a matter how they lost their child. I just can't even imagine.

I almost can't wait until next week......

We're going on vacation to the beach next week, which I'm very excited about! All day, every day, I'm going to sit my butt on the beach drinking fruity drinks and reading a good book and each night go somewhere to eat wonderful seafood!

Why does the title of this post say "almost"? I won't bore you with all of the details, but something has already transpired that makes me think the boyfriend's family is going to try their best to screw this vacation up for us, because God forbid we try to take a vacation for a few days and it somehow not be all about them.

I'm going to think positive and hope for the best and hopefully we will have a wonderful vacation!

well said.....

Until yesterday, I had never heard of a "push present" before. Am I the only one?

I'm not going to say a whole lot about my opinion, because I could go on and on and on about how I think this is tacky and I'm not really in the mood for a bunch of hate mail....haha. Let me be clear though....I think it's tacky to demand, expect, ask for, etc a "push present". If your husband wants to get you a present for having the baby without you having suggested it, that's great! But I don't think anyone should ask for a present for any occasion. If someone wants to get you a gift for something, then they will do so.

Anywho, I think Atlanta Bride says it better than I could anyway in
this post. If you read the post, make sure you read all of the comments....they're quite amusing (to me anyway, but it doesn't take much to amuse me).

What are your thoughts on a "push present"?
