Still working on this

I am still working on learning this Blog thing. I am trying to make it more personal but I am not real sure how to do this. My husband is no help, he is watching the Winter X games. If it is on ESPN he will watch it. I can usually get by just sitting and reading or on the computer and he is happy i am in the room. The boys are the same way.

I had a Southern Living at Home Party today and had a blast. The boys left and when they came back, Ben said they were checking on my "girl party" That is what i have to call things that they can not attend, baby shower, wedding shower, anything that boys do not need to go to. Ben just wanted to make sure we were having a good time. Everyone was gone by the time they got home and of course they wanted to know where the girls for the "girl party" were. Hayden has already started planning a " boy party" Dad gets to come, Mr. Brent, Charleston, and any other boy or dad he could think of. I asked what they were going to do and he said in the voice which means "Mooooom " Boy things!! I guess that leaves it wide open huh???

Modern times

Okay, i am getting this blog thing down!! Sort of I guess!!!! I am really trying to be a modern mom but i am still not going to text!!! I can call you faster than I can type you a message!! I know, I know ... get with it Sam, but I just can't. I know that in a few years, the boys will be the ones to operate all the electronic equipment in our house, but for now, I want it simple and easy. Brian and his stereo is another story, but that is him!! Boys and their toys!!!

The new year has brought tighter jeans to my house anyone else???!!! I know it is the couch that is doing it to me, so after the Super Bowl, I am going to get back to my walking tapes. I wish I knew where to go walking indoors because doing it at home alone, it is too easy to not do it. If anyone wants to start walking with me, let me know. I know there are alot of runners, but I am just more of a walker. I ran alot in softball as a teenager and enjoy walking better. Just me!!

I am ready for summer!! I am not a cold weather girl!!! I love to swim, go camping, go walking outdoors etc. The things you can do in Spring, Summer and early Fall!!!

Family time

This past weekend we went to visit my parents and brother and sister-in-law. The boys just love going to Nana and Poppy's house. Brian and I were able to get away for the afternoon and just eat lunch out and do a little shopping (thanks mom!!!) My brother has a tampolene and Hayden just has a blast on it. Ben is still now sure, but he will just if no one else moves. The boys are so funny when they are there. It is like a new place every time we go. I am so thankful to have them close by. Brian's parents live in Arizona but are going to be moving back to Arkansas in the next year or so and his brother is in North Carolina so having my family close is good for us both. God has really blessed us with two great families and so many friends who feel just like family!!!

New to this

I am new to blogging so I will just give it a shot.

My two boys, Hayden and Ben ages 5 and 2 keep me busy. My husband Brian is a pharmacist so I stay at home. I love staying home. Before I was able to stay at home, I was an assistant to a Vice President in Private Banking at Regions bank in LR. We moved here in September of 2007 for a job for Brian. I sometimes miss my job at the bank, but I really enjoy my job now. The boys are a joy ( I can say that, they are asleep right now) I always knew I wanted to be a mom but I thought that I wanted a girl until I had Hayden. I know that you are happy with whatever the child is but I was just beside myself with him. Ben is a constant source of loudness ( I am hoping that will change soon!!) When you are just about at your witts end, someone comes and gives you a kiss. I thought that I might miss out on that not having girls, but not with my boys!! I praise god everyday for my 3 boys (including Brian of course) Sometimes they are not my favorite people, but I am so greatful for them it makes up for it!!
