26 things about me

1. Casey and I dated in high school, but broke up. He randomly called me three years later and we were married the following december.

2. We lived in Sevierville TN beside Gatlinburg for 11 months, it was a blast!

3. All of our parents and my grandparents live off of the same road.

4. My first crush on Casey was when I was twelve and he had goofy glasses and a bowl cut ;)

5. Around the same time, I shaved the bottom half of my hair off because Jennifer Lovelace did it and I thought she was sooo cool lol.

6. My best friend growing up was Erin Lynn.

7. I went into ultrasound because I wanted to do medical and didn't want to deal with needles or anything gross, boy was i in for a rude awakening. You wouldn't believe the things you can scan with ultrasound!!! Seriously just get me started on this one, I have lots of stories.

8. I have a mini dacshund and a cat.

9. I don't know what possessed me to get either one of them. They are too much work with a baby. Actually I can handle my daisey, but the cat is the one i could do without! All she does in cry!

10. I have a beautiful baby boy (like any of you don't know, he is all I have blogged about so far and I take him everywhere!)

11. I love naps!

12. I don't cook, really! I think I have used my stove twice since Jack was born. Poor Casey. We eat out! Alot lol.

13. My husband did electrical work for five years and my bedroom still does not have switch covers or plug covers!

14. We pretty much gutted the house we have and remodeled and I never want to paint again.

15. Casey is the funniest person I know, I laugh all of the time. I love him!!

16. I don't have a hobby, not that i would have time for one now that i have Jack.

17. I envy stay at home moms.

18. I never mail anything. I am horrible about this! I will write a card and it stays in my house forever. Email has saved my life!

19. I love to lay out in the sun on a float. I will probably regret that in about 10 years or sooner than that, but it really relaxes me.

20. I am ocd about jack's food and not wasting the milk i pump. I am like the breast milk police. I call all the time to make sure he eats every drop. I feel sorry for my family, but they forgive me. The know i just want to be involved. And for those of you who pump, you know it is hard work!

21. I have to sleep with two pillows (more when I was pregnant). One under my head and one between my knees. It drives Casey crazy because they are everywhere.

22. I have been cutting Casey's hair for five years. One night he wanted me to try before he shaved it off and he liked it. Now i do my dad's, casey's, and my brother's hair every month. i like it, it is a fun chore and it saves my family some money!

23. I am obsessed about shaving! I do it everyday of my life. That was the worst thing about having jack. At the hospital I was to weak to do it and it about drove me crazy! Right when we got home, i had my mother in law help me, i felt sooo much better ;)

24. I am totally still in love with Casey!

25. My family is my world. I love them all! I am blessed to be as close to them as I am!

26. Jack is a gift from God and i love him more than anything!

My little Jackpot

I am just sitting at work bored to death and missing Jack, so I thought I would blog about him. Mondays are always hardest for me because I have just gotten to spend the whole weekend with him. I go through withdrawls. This morning I woke up the the sound of him jabbering and just by listening I could tell he was laying on his stomach lifting his head just waiting on mommy to come a get him :) I went in there and sure enough, he was on his belly looking up. I put him to bed last night in his last Pamper's swaddlers diaper (size 2) so it wouldn't go to waste and now I have a whole bed worth of laundry to do. The poor little guy peed all over himself. I don't know how he was sleeping in it. Well we are for sure in a size 3 now. I hate to leave the swaddlers behind. Partly because I love them and partly because it is all going way to fast. I can't belive it has already been six months! Anyway, back to this morning. He usually goes right to sleep when i feed him after he wakes up, but for some reason this morning he just kept staring at me and playing with my nose. I just decided to get up and let him watch my morning routine. He sat quietly on the bed and watched me iron while chewing on a few toys. It was a great way to start the day :) Well enought for now, hope everyone is having a good Monday!

My first blog :)
Well a little introduction about me and my family. I am married to a wonderful husband, Casey. We were highschool sweethearts and have been married now for nearly 4 years. We have a six month old little boy named Jack and he is the love of my life!! We have two pets daisey and maggie.

I do ultrasound for a group of doctors in muscle shoals and Casey is a salesman at Ray Miller Buick. I love my work most of the time. It is a very interesting job.

Well, I guess that is enough for my first blog!
