Bahamas mama

I am headed to the airport. Got an early start at 2:30 AM. I'm so very tired, but so excited!! I have lots of traveling to do to reach my destination, Harbour Island Bahamas. I fly out of Atlanta at 8:30, fly into Nassau at 10:50, catch a small plane to Eleuthera, hop on a taxi to the dock, then take a boat taxi to Harbour Island. I will take lots of pictures and update everyone when I get back. I am so excited for some warm weather.

Sweet home NY

I am so happy with my decision to move up to New York. My "new" family is just wonderful. I have met a lot of new friends and it really makes me feel at home.

This past week, I had a sleepover with J since he is already out of school for the holidays. We had lots of fun watching Beauty and the Beast and eating ice cream in bed.

I also got some very sweet gifts from the kids and their parents. I am a lucky girl. Here is B wearing all of my new things.

I am at the airport, headed home and can't wait to see my family and friends.
Merry Christmas to everyone!

Buddy the elf

This is what I woke up to today! So exciting!

The snow is so pretty!

Tonight, we cuddled up by the...

And watched...

Happy Tuesday!

New York update

Well I have been in New York for 6 days and absolutely love it so far. For those of you who don't know, I moved here to work as a nanny/ mother's helper. There are 4 kids and for the privacy of the family I will refer to them by their first initial. G is 9, B is 7, J is 5, and baby girl (P) is 1. They are all absolutely precious! P is learning to deal with being the baby sister to 3 loving brothers who can sometimes forget that she is only a baby. I really couldn't have asked for a better family.

Here are some pics that I have taken so far...

My cottage...sorry for the black around the edges, but blogging from my phone isn't easy.

My Christmas decor!

My king size bed!!

Central park

Me and mom in central park!

This is what I did with the kids this weekend. I think we ate more then we decorated. Ha!

I will post again soon.

Until then...

Blogger Special for Shutterfly

I have a ton of friends who use Shutterfly for srapbooking, designing cards, and picture sharing. I love just getting on there to browse, but I've been shopping around more recently because Shutteryfly is offering bloggers 50 FREE holiday cards when they share about Shutterfly on their blog.

I have always used Shutterfly for getting pictures printed and for picture sharing, but this year in an attempt to send Christmas cards for cheap, I am trying my hand at designing my own Chrsitmas cards using Shutterfly. I have received Christmas cards in the past (from people who designed their own using Shutterfly) and it seems easy and they turn out very good.
Here are some of my favorite Christmas cards - one of which I am using this year. You can see more cards like these HERE at Shutterfly's Christmas Card selection.

I also love their calendars and photo is some of my favorite.

Go now to check out all the stuff that Shutterfly has to offer!!!
If you are interested in getting 50 FREE cards - you should totally visit Shuttefly and sign up. I'm super excited to design my own card and still save money!!

Football season has finally arrived and I cannot be more ecstatic!!

Saturday we played San Jose State and we won 48-3.

A fantastic way to start the season.

I can't wait until Friday to head back for the Penn State game.

I know I have been lately, but hopefully I will do better starting now.

1. My sister's and I have started a girl's night/bible study once a week. We started tonight and we are beginning with the basics. I have read parts of Purpose Driven Life before, but never did it in a group so we decided this would be a good starting point. We had an awesome time tonight discussing the first few day's and I can't wait to see what is in store as we get further along.

2. I have been spending lots and lots of time with this little one....and I love it! She is at such a fun age. This picture is from our looooong walk this morning.

3. I finally met this perfect little baby...Samual Larkin. He is so precious!
Gotta love the natural mohawk.

This video made my day so I had to share it. Enjoy.

Can I just say that I am counting down the minutes to kickoff Saturday?? ROLL TIDE ROLL.

I will be spending my weekend in Tuscaloosa and I cannot even express how ecstatic I am.

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 16

Day 16 is songs that make me cry...

Unfortunately, I am a crier and lots of songs have the potential to make me cry.

These 2 make me cry EVERY single time.

Sarah McLachlan-In the Arms of an Angel

Amazing Grace.
Amazing Grace was played at my Grandmother's funeral and it was one of her favorite songs.
It always brings me to tears.

Happy Monday!!

2 days until my trip to Chicago and 19 days until Alabama football!!!


30 Day Blog Journal-Day 15

So today was the day...the day that I parted ways with my birthday balloon from JANUARY.

I thought this thing would never stop singing. I have had it stored away in my closet for months and every time I accidentally bumped it, I had to hear the 2 minute song...

"It's your birthday, have a happy birthday.
Your birthday comes just once a year, so now it's time to cheer."


As much as I loved the balloon that my sis got me, I had to throw it out today. I was doing some major cleaning and it had to go.

Day 15 is dream home.

Since we are dreaming...

This could quite possibly go on forever, but I will stop here.

Bye Bye Weekend, Hello Monday!
