Memorial Day.

Today was a fun day! We went to the pool with the Putnam's, and then went to Amy's to grill out. We played rook, talked, and ate a ton! I had a craving for both watermelon and s'mores and both were satisfied!
Happy Memorial Day!!

Picking up my kids.

Today we went at picked up my little bugs. The kids went crazy when they saw us... I loved it! They showed us all their toys and all the things they did. Austin could WALK! It was so wonderful to see them again!!

Chris's Reenlistment.

Today we signed back up with the army for another 4 years. They had a ceremony for Chris and it reminded me how much I love the military! We're going to PCS to Colorado in November. We are all so excited!

The shirt I'm wearing is from Milan maternity... THANKS NAT!!

Beach Trip Day 5!!

Today was our official day of procrastination. We did not want to leave, but we had to. So we went to Pier Park and did everything we could think of. We stopped a billion times on the way home. I even got a bloody nose so we could stay a little longer! :) I really had a blast, and love all my friends who came on the trip with me! But I'm SO ready to see my kids again!

Beach Trip Day 4!!

Today was probably my favorite day of all. We relaxed the whole day savoring every moment we could, because we we're leaving tomorrow! This trip has been so awesome and none of us want it to end!! We spent the day bonding and then went to Margaritaville for dinner! It was so good and fun! They even had fireworks! I also learned spades which is an AWESOME game! Especially when you win. :)

Beach Trip Day 3!!

Today was a lot of fun! I spent most of the day at the pool. It was a very chill day overall. The Flynn's and us stayed in and grilled hamburgers. But we had a lot of entertainment from Horton and his Who lol!

Beach Trip Day 2!!

Today was a lot of fun! We enjoyed a day on the beach, played volleyball (I'm awful), played at the pool, and then went out to Angelo's for dinner!

Beach Trip Day 1!!

Today we woke up bright and early and started on our road trip to PCB (Panama City Beach)! The Flynn's and us drove together in our van. We played 20 questions to pass the time. When we got to PCB we decided to eat out at Pineapple Willy's!!

Hectic Day!

Today was CRAZY! First I went to get my nails done with Kasey, Kayla, and Tess. Then I went to get my hair done by Jenna at her salon (we decided to go darker... my hair was too yellow for my taste). Then we had to finish cleaning out the car and the house, pack, and so much more! I just wanted to take a nap!! Pregnancy really wears you out! This pic is the pic I texted Chris after getting my hair done.

Spaghetti Squash.

Today I cleaned my house and got things ready for our trip! I also read of my "What To Expect" iphone app that Grayson is one pound and as big as a spaghetti squash! I'm not surprised! He's all over the place!!

Monday, May 17, 2010


I really tried to sleep in today since it was the first day without my kids but like normal, I woke up at 7 on the dot. So I decided to start my day early. I went shopping with some of our saved beach money, and bought some cute new things for the trip! I found this shoe store at the Mall of GA called Traffic that I LOVE! Everything is so cute and CHEAP!! These shoes are one of the items I bought!

Heading to Grandma's House!

Today was a very difficult day for me. I cried off and on all day long. This was the first time I gave both of my kids away for more than a day or two. I know they enjoyed it, because they ate cookies, drank slurpies, saw their grandma (Chris's mom), etc., but it was SO HARD for me. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do it again.

Yard Sale.

With the beach trip around the corner, my friends and I decided to have a little multi-family yard sale to make a little extra spending money for our trip! Chris and I got rid of a lot of random things we didn’t need and make some money while doing it! Plus, I got to hangout with my friends! My first Yard Sale was definitely a success!!

McDonalds at the Park.

Today was very hard for me. I knew that my babies were going to TN for a week, and I wanted to savor every second with them until then. So today I took my kids to the park and got McDonalds. It was SO humid, and I was so sleepy, but I couldn’t pass up giving them a fun day before they left me.


I love food. I really do, but I’ve never been much of an eater. Not only am I pretty picky, but I’m a small portions type girl. And I ONLY drink water and milk. That’s all I’ve ever needed or wanted. This pregnancy is seriously screwing with me. All I can think about is food. What I could bake, trying to eat out as often as Chris will allow, making food in abundance! It’s getting ridiculous! I don’t see how people eat like this normally. I honestly feel disgusting! I feel like I’m gaining weight as I fall asleep, I feel like I’m breaking out even when I’m not, I just feel gross! But it’s like I can’t stop! This pregnancy is going to do me in… I can feel it. I knew my genes would catch up with me sooner or later, but I was really hoping for later if not never. Trust me, I’m not about to let go of the fight, but this constant need for food and in bulk is not helping one bit! And I try to fight it! I was craving a Big Mac and fries the other day, but instead had a bowl of mini wheats (okay a few bowls). I have not felt satisfied until today… we had McDonalds for dinner. Okay enough venting! I just need more control, but still feel like I’m giving Grayson everything he needs and more!

Bath Time.

Lately my back and sides have been killing me... especially at NIGHT! It's to the point that I have to take baths to relax my body! I don't know whats up but Grayson really like to tuck himself right into my back at nights. Its not fun at all to say the least!! Tonights bath was very relaxing. I turned the hallway light on and the bathroom light off so it was dim. Then I put foam bath and salts in the tub. I also turned music on my iphone... relaxing stuff. I enjoyed every second of it! I like my baths so hot that I can hardly sit down because it's burning my skin, but now that I'm pregnant I can't have that hot of baths... that the only downside! But overall it was a nice way to end the day.

Side note: Chris gave me these and tons of other bath stuff in this really nice hat box when we were dating. It was actually the day he first told me he loved me. I think I was working as an instructor at The Little Gym at the time and he picked me up from work and we went off roading... lame I know. But that's where he told me so yeah... there's a little Chris and Amy trivia!

This has become somewhat of a ritual for Lily. When I tell Lily it's almost time she likes to look out the window to wait on Daddy to come home. I think it is so sweet... especially how excited she gets when she sees him!

Ham Dinner.

Tonight’s dinner was heaven. I’ve been craving this for weeks now and just went ahead and made it tonight! It was DELICIOUS!! We had a ham, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh Rhodes rolls, and corn. It hit the spot! Plus I made enough to eat in again tomorrow night… and Chris can take it for lunch! And when it comes to the kids… it was a winner!

Monday, May 10, 2010


Today Chris got off work because we had an appointment at one, but when we got there the system was down. We sat around for awhile waiting for it to start working, but eventually we decided to give up. So instead we went to the park for lunch! It was a bit chilly for my taste, but Lily and Austin had a ball!

Mother's Day 2010

Today was the best mother’s day! I woke up to French Toast. Chris tried a new recipe which was AWESOME! Then we all got ready for the day and heading up to Lake Lanier for the day. Their beach isn’t opening until next weekend so we found this spot that Chris used to go to when he lived up there. The kids enjoyed the waves. Afterwards we went to the mall of GA to play in the water fountain and do a little browsing. I got a really cute pair of gold heels for $15! After we were done there we went up to Perimeter and ate at P.F. Changs and had dessert at CafĂ© Intermezzo! The day was absolutely perfect!!!

Thank You Natalie!!

Yesterday Natalie called me all excited and told me she had a mother's day surprise for me. It turns out she nominated me for a Maternity make-over and I WON!! I get $200 to spend at Milan Maternity!! I'm SO excited! Natalie is the best!!

Mother's Day!

Mother's Day this year was awesome! We spent the whole day in the SUN!! I have the best family ever!

Saturday, May 08, 2010


Although I didn't have a car today (hubby was working on the bronco at his dads), I couldn't ignore the beautiful day! So the kids and I went on the deck and had a little picnic and played! It was a fabulous day! I just wish Chris could have enjoyed it with us!

Iron Man 2 and a grill.

Tonight we went to the Drive-in to see Iron Man 2 with a bunch of our friends! It was tons of fun! We cooked out, enjoyed the movie, and then came back to my house to play a few games. I love the drive-in! It's such a fun date night and super cheap! Anyway Lily, Austin, and me enjoyed the movie in the comfort of our own car! :)

Moving on...

So we’re officially moving to Colorado in November. It feels so weird! Now that I’ve finally established good friends and a good home, it’s time to move on. I really miss Arizona, Belgium, and now I’m going to miss Georgia! I’m so glad that I get this opportunity to meet new people and live in new places every few years. I love moving around. I was born to be an army wife! I’m going to be really sad to leave my sister and her family behind. Lily and Kenzie are just so close and I’ll be sad to separate them. Besides Belgium, they’ve been around each other since day one! And now that I’m moving to CO I really, really hope my parents end up in Utah! Or really anywhere near me! It’s crazy how fast everything changes in my life! It was only three years ago I was living at home with my parents. Things are always changing!!

Bald Austin!

Austin and his hair… that boy loves to use his hair as a napkin while he eats. And it’s so bad that we’ve had to throw him in the shower/bath 3 times a day! He’s crazy! So we decided that since summer is right around the corner it was time to shave it off. I know he looks goofy, but it’s so worth it! Lily was so cute! She kept laughing at Austin and saying, “Austin looks like a grandpa” haha!

Cinco De Mayo!

Tonight I went out with some friends for Cinco De Mayo. It was really fun!! I haven't laughed that hard in awhile! I definitely will be sad to leave these friends!!

The kids love coloring!! So today I got out the crayons and let them at it!

Monday, May 03, 2010


Lily loves playing in the rain. She watched out the window until I finally gave in and we went outside to play! We played and played and played! Then I went inside and sat in the dining room and watched Lily play some more... I'm not as energetic as that little girl! She played for probably an hour and had a blast! She sang, danced, jumped, screamed... she LOVED it! When I finally got her inside we all showered, and then all snuggled up in my bed to watch Toy Story! I love relaxing, rainy days!

Girls Day.

Today Jenna, Shelbey, and me had a girls day. It was so much fun! We went out for some mexican food, went to the mall, listened to a band play outside while sipping on smoothies, went on a walk through a trail to find a waterfall, laughed, sang, and just had a fabulous day together! It was a blast!

Fun day!!!

Today we went to Ft. Benning to go to the PX. That base was so big! I loved it! Chris got new boots, and we got a few other things. Then we headed home. We went to Maggiano's in Buckhead for dinner. That is one of my favorite places to eat. Afterwards, we went to the drive-in theater to see a double feature. It was a really fun, long day. As you can tell in the picture, we were all exhausted by time we got home!
