Updates ...

Let me share a few things to get this week started off..

Santa came early for Mr.Man. Hint.... the Direct TV guy is coming this week.

Look what one special Nana is getting this Christmas... A Smile Tile! I can't wait to see it. Check out my new friend's website... Heather was so helpful in helping me pick out a picture. My first Christmas gift purchased.

Just so we are clear...I would like a Monogrammed Yukon not a Monogrammed Avalanche. (The things we do for others).... Mr. Man, in his sales job, is driving around my awesome Yukon. (I am driving around his Avalanche.) Gas prices are down, dear. Lucky for him I had not bought a monogram yet from Monogram Me at And look they are on sale this week. Something is getting monogrammed.

Sharped Dressed Man and My Bug

Not sure these are the names I will go with for my guys, but for now you get the point.

Here is a picture of my husband of four years and our sweet two year old boy. As parents we had no idea how life would become so sweet and awesome having children. (We hope the dear Lord will bless us again soon with another one). But for now, our BUG is best thing ever even when he pitches a fit. I also had no idea how smart and independent at 2 year old can be. And he is a great communicator at well. Saying his ABC's, asking questions and remembering from one day to the next. Our baby is no baby anymore. So there is just a little intro to how it is being a mom to my bug... Now I am going to get him and enjoy our evening routine together as a family. Here's hoping you have a great evening too....

Funny story...

So on Saturday morning, my sweet husband said it is such a beautiful day, we are going to the Moutains tomorrow as a family. So on Sunday, we head up the road and an hour later it is time for lunch so we eat and we begin discussing our next possible options. Let me just skip to the point... we went to OUTLET MALL. No complaints from me. The leaves looked great on our way to the Outlet Malls. I think my husband knew all along where he wanted to go.... shopping.

So I thought Mr. Man (my husband) was going to be all gung ho about being at the Outlets but he was not. And I wanted to look and shop but I felt like I had a ball and chain with me. Now I just have wet my whistle so to speak and want to go back. We did not go into the first store for my little Bug (sweet 2-year boy). That was on purpose because he is so easy to buy for I knew I would splurge. So next time. We had such a successful outlet shopping in Gulf Shores a few months back …yesterday was pretty laid back. Really… we only spent $10 ($3 at Pottery Barn and $7 at Restoration Hardware). not counting the $5 stroller that was a life safer and $1.00 on two silly rides for Bug.

But all that is a little background and more info than you wanted. Here is the real funny part...
… Mr. Man called me this morning from Macy’s. He thought he had hit the jackpot. He found two pairs of pants and several shirts. He literally said “Man this is the time to shop” No kidding! … kids are in school, you are all by yourself, you just got paid, Veterans Day Sales, etc. Good Grief. Wish I could shop with all of those factors. Oh and 10 pounds less would be great too! …. He was calling me for the Credit Card number. You know extra 15% off when you charge. I say again… good grief and what are you doing shopping during the work day! ... With this shopping tactic maybe I should name my guy... Sharpe Dressed Man. He really is.
