Update-My anniversary

On November 17th my husband and I celebrated our official one year anniversary. Our anniversary fell on a Saturday but my Mother and Father-in-law gave us the entire weekend baby free so we decided to take full advantage of it. We decided to use the weekend not only to connect physically (**wink-wink**) but also to connect mentally, and emotionally. I have had a few couples in my life recently that have decided to call it quits for many of the same problems that we have as a couple. Youth, stress, money, children. Basically it is hard being a young parent and husband/wife. So over the weekend we talked, alot. We decided from the jump that we would be honest and upfront about everything plaguing our minds and hearts, and I honestly believe that we did just that. I learned a few things from him that I wouldnt have known otherwise, for exampe, these divorces and separations tat are coming so close to home are not only affecting me, he tells me that it worries him also. He feels like when I tell him of the problems they seem to be so minor (and sometimes they are) that he thinks that at the first sign of real trouble I will pack my stuff and go. I don't know if it is the youth talking or the length of time that we have been together (still in the honeymoon stage) but I feel like we are best friends, soulmates, and that some of the things that these other couples are breaking up over would never plague us. And that if there were any real problems that we would just talk about them together.
Now other than just talking we just spent some time togther. We went out to dinner to Applebees on Friday, got a few bottles of alcohol, and spent the rest of the night at home watching some blockbuster movies. The original plan was to go see a movie on Saturday and themovie that we both agreed upon was a fourth chapter to which we had seen all but the third, so we rented that. Saturday however we were suprised to find that the movie was sent to where ever it is that movies go when they leave the theatre. So after a breakfast at Waffle house, a trip to get some Christmas presents and a bit of lounging around, we decided to go to the movies anyway and we saw (get this) actually something I wanted to see. We saw Fred Claus and it was really really cute. Not what I thought it would be, but we ended up going to a very cute theatre that is a restaurant also so at the bad parts I just scarfed down some fries. LOL. We also found our next fancy eat out spot merely by accident. It's called Copeland's and its an upscale New Orlean's style restaurant, kind of like Pappadeaux's, but a little dressier. OMG the food was so good. Now mind you we only got an appetizer plate of buffalo wings and 2 drinks, but from just that little bit we decided that we would definitely be back. Sunday we went to get our boy, and we just spent some time together as a family. It was a very nice weekend.

Fall Y'all Giveaway Update- Congrats Michelle and Audra

Well, well, well. First let me say thanks to those of you that visited my page and left me a comment. I had a whopping 55 comments, which is by no means as many comments as some people *cough*500*cough*, but still more than I have gotten in the full year that I have had my blog up and running ( even if you add them all up and double them, it still wont touch the amount ive gotten in the past week. )

Now, like so many of you other bloggers I used the random number generator.

First it came up with 10, which was Heather. I got excited when I saw that Heather had a blog, but when I clicked her said she was blocked. Now what's the point Heather. If you happen to stop back by let me know and we will find something for you.

But I had to re-generate. Then it came up with 34, which was Michelle B, who left this comment

Political correct holiday stories sounds fun
Please enter me in your contest
So, congrats Michelle B. You get the Politically Correct Holiday Stories. I will be contacting you soon to get your information.
But, hey, I still have that darn Superman book. So I ran the number generator again..28. Audra Marie, who left this comment
Both sound great!
Thanks for the chance to win.
So congrats to you also Audra. I will also be contacting you soon. I hope you ladies enjoy your new books very much.
Sorry for those of you that did not win. Do not feel bad. I entered over 300 of those contests, and I still have yet to win. Check the results of all of the contests here just to be sure. We can wallow in our sadness together. TTYL

Fall Y'all Blog giveaway

Who knew the internet could be used for anything other than crazy porn and research. Tonight I just happened to stop at a page that is doing this crazy giveaway. The blog is Rocks in my dryer, and she is hosting a very cool Fall Y'all blog giveaway. I found over 500 free contests to enter (and sadly I have entered about half of them) and in doing so I decided that I wanted to host a giveaway of my own. I searched my house looking for anything that might be kind of cool to give away, or anything that might be fun to pass on to someone else. I found a few things.

The Superman Handbook by Scott Beaty. Such a cute little book for any man or woman who has ever wanted to know how to stop a runaway car, treat a broken neck, how to put out a fire, or even how to refill a water cooler.


Politically Correct Holiday Stories by James Finn Garner. This christmas do things a little bit different and when you sit around the fire read about Frosty The Person Of Snow, or even Rudolph The Nasally Empowered Reindeer. Very cute book, and fun to have at the holiday season.


If you wanna enter the contest leave a comment below and tell me which one you want to win(or if you wanna win both). Only one entry per person. Contest ends Sunday November 4th at 8:00 PM EST, and winners will be selected and notified Monday November 5th. US only please. Please leave a way to contact you, because...well, duh...if you win I gotta contact you. Enjoy your time here, and come back one day when you aren't just using my blog to get free stuff.
