Who Am I?

I just realized it has been over a week since I last posted a blog entry. I don't even know why. I've sat down a few times and began a post and just never finished. My head has been in a fog all week and I feel like I've been so busy but, I couldn't tell you exactly what I did. I feel like I've missed an entire week. I don't know who I am, what I've done, or what I'm supposed to be doing. I haven't even taken a picture of Hayden until today. Man, I don't know whats wrong with me. I guess it could be the lack of sleep considering Hayden doesn't think sleep is a necessity. He refuses to nap, refuses to go to bed at night, and wakes up at the crack of dawn.

Anyway, it rained this morning and Hayden and I were lazy. We've played games and built forts and watched Noggin all morning. If I had it my way I would have stayed snuggled in bed under the covers all day. But, Hayden wouldn't have that.

This is a little video of Hayden pretending to call daddy this morning

Today, Hayden has refused to take a nap. Surprise, surprise. I thought I could jump in the shower while he was pretending to sleep in his room but, I was surprised in the shower by a cars fishing pole. "I got it mommy" he says. I only got 1/2 of one leg shaved and I think I washed my hair. Ah...motherhood!

Toddler Sleepovers

Landon came over this afternoon to have a sleepover with Hayden. They played a lot and didn't take a nap. It is now 9:30 pm and they have been asleep for over an hour. I'm not kidding. It's amazing, I don't know what to do with myself. I thought for sure they would be up kind of late tonight. I think I might crawl in bed and watch a movie. I love those boys!

Awww....look best buds!

this is Landon climbing up the rope ladder thingy...he was very proud of himself!

There's nothing like some toddler tether ball

What a fun day!


We bought Hayden some Lego's yesterday. I'm not really sure why he never had any before but he loves blocks so I figured he would like Lego's too. I probably should have bought them in the winter but I needed something that would keep him occupied so I could rest during the day since he refuses to take a nap. I am so glad I bought these Lego's.

Meet Meko

This is Meko...our first child.

Meko is a 4 year old cocker spaniel and a birthday present to me when I turned 22. I love this dog. But, he drives me nuts. Meko thinks he should be an only child. He's very sweet and a little weird. Ok, a lot weird! Meko holds grudges if I do something to make him mad like not give him a puppy biscuit before bed he'll let me know he's mad for days. He'll poop on the floor right after he came from outside and he'll ignore me when I talk to him. I'm not kidding. At times he's worse than Hayden, some days I feel like I have 3 children (greg, hayden, meko). Nana bought Meko his own dog bed for Christmas and he won't sleep in it. He still sleeps in the bed with us. It drives me crazy. We've tried so many times to ignore him when he wants help getting up on the bed. He will pace from side to side and whine until you pick him up. He's also very lazy, he sleeps about 23 hours a day. He's the last one to get out of bed in the morning. Some days I have to literally pick him up and make him go outside. He's a pain in the butt but, I love him and I love to pick on him...

Hayden's got a secret!!

I've been tagged

I've been tagged by another blogger so here it goes...

What was I doing ten years ago: I was 16 and a sophomore at Fuquay-Varina Highschool and since it's 2:33 on a Saturday right now I was probably at work. I worked at the Hyphen Coffeehouse every Saturday from 7-4.

Five things on my to do list today: grocery store, Walmart, Michael's, pick up house, work in yard...and everything but picking up the house is done so far.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire: Pay off all our debt, buy a house, buy our parents a house, put money away for Hayden, buy a new car.

Three of my bad habits: biting my nails, spending too much time on the computer, procrastinating

Five places I have lived: Raleigh, Fuquay-Varina, Rocky Mount, Wilmington, Chapel Hill

Five jobs you've had: Rock-ola(server), Chili's(server), The Preiss Company (assistant property manager), Star City Skate Rink (funnest job ever), Blockbuster (manager-lasted a week, I hated it) I've had lots more but those are my last 5


By the way, I'm feeling much better so you'll here more from me next week! Enjoy your weekend and Happy Mothers Day!!

Promised Pictures

A day late...

I accidentally deleted the pictures of the animals and I'm too sick and too tired to wait for them to upload again. Maybe tomorrow!

I don't like Hate being sick!

So, I got Hayden's cold. I'm not sure why I thought I could get by without catching it. I've got it all runny nose, fever, sore throat. I feel horrible but, I'll live.

I've been really slack about putting pictures up. I keep forgetting to get my camera out of the car. I promise I'll put them up tomorrow.

Hayden told me he wanted to wear big boy underwear today and he has done so good. No accidents so far. Hallelujah!!!

Greg is doing well at the Apex store. We hope that he can stay there for a while. The restaurant seems to be doing better than they expected and much better than Durham. Thank goodness he got out of there. The next store to open up is White Oak we aren't sure if he'll be opening that store yet. If he does we will have to move and neither of us want to do that. The money would have to be really good.

I'm gonna see if I can get Hayden to nap so I can too. I promise pictures tomorrow!!!

Is it bedtime yet?

Last night we had
10 digging toes
10 grabby fingers
2 kicking feet
2 punching fists
TOO MANY in our bed last night!
Poor little guy has been battling a cold this week and last night his fever broke at about 11:30 pm. He woke up soaking wet and upset. So he slept with us! Hayden hasn't slept with us since he was a newborn. Not even once. He slept very well, you could tell by the snoring. Mommy and Daddy not so much. Today, I have been exhausted, one step behind all day. This is a list of things Hayden has done (I'm not kidding)
  • dumped an entire bag of sugar on the coffee table (now we have ants)
  • put dog food down the air vent
  • took all the clothes out of his drawers
  • emptied his toy chest
  • hit me with his rubber snake at least a million times (I finally took it away)
  • took an apple juice container out of the trash and dumped the remaining contents on the living room floor. (now we have even more ants)
  • used eggs to play fetch with the dog

I'm sure there is more I haven't discovered yet...I'm exhausted can someone read me a book and tuck me in tonight? And the best part of all Greg is working late tonight so it's just me.

Simple Giveaways

I often enter to win give-aways on different most recent one is more for Hayden than me. It's just the cutest little lunch box that unzips into a place mat. Check it out at Simple-Reviews. You can also see these little lunch boxes at
