Newlywed Game

How long do you have to be married before you are no longer "newlywed"? 2 years? 5 years? 10 years? after your first child is born? second child? Is there a guideline?

Anyway, I took this questionaire from Katie over at Cleared for Takeoff, she played it with her hubby and it looked like fun! So here it goes, I asked the hubby the following questions about me:

1. She's sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen?
Hubs: Chick show, as in Grey's Anatomy, 90210, Drop Dead Diva

Me: Yep, that is pretty much it on the dot

2. You're out to eat, what kind of dressing does she get on her salad?

Hubs: Thousand Island

Me: Actually it is Ranch or Honey Mustard

3. What's one food she doesn't like?
Hubs: Sloppy Joes

Me: Exactly, I think Sloppy Joes look like someone couldn't figure out what to do with left over spaghetti sauce when they ran out of noodles and stuck it on some bread. It tastes like a cross between spaghetti sauce and meatloaf.

4. You go out to eat and have a drink, what does she order?

Hubs: Wine

Me: Yes, usually or sweet tea.

5. What size shirt does she have?

Hubs: XXL

Me: Yep, God blessed me-then it looks like a tent-I find it hard to find a good t-shirt.

6. What size shoe does she have?

Hubs: 7

Me: Well, technically,no-once I had Lyllian I now wear an 8-81/2-but before I was pregnant, yes he is correct.

7. What's her favorite type of sandwich?

Hubs: Pimento Cheese

Me: Yep! :) YUMMY!

8. What would she eat everyday if she could?

Hubs: Pimento Cheese or Sonic

Me: Maybe not so much pimento, but I LURVE me some Sonic!

9. What is her favorite cereal?

Hubs: Fiber One

Me: Actually, it's Cheerios, but I tried to get on a Fiber One kick at one point.

10. What would she never wear?

Hubs: Tube top

Me: yeah, that's true

11. What is her favorite sports team?

Hubs: MTSU Raiders

Me: I mean since I am still paying them for school, I might as well support them, right?!?

12. What is something she does that you wish she didn't do?
Hubs: Nag

Me: Haha! Lyllian's books need to be picked up. :)

13. What is her heritage?

Hubs: English

Me: I actually think it is Dutch

Happy Fall Y'all

Sweet Treats

I started with this:
And some apples. Then it became these:
In the fridge to "cool" the carmel:

I made these little labels:

And ended with these:

I will be giving these to all of my 7th grade teacher colleagues. I know I will probably be THAT mom, but you know, I'm okay being THAT mom-ha!

We are family...

I got all my cousins with me. Earlier in the month (I realize I am late posting this) we had a family reunion. We have one every year the Saturday after Labor Day-anyway! Last year Lyllian was just a wee one and had no idea what was going on, this year she was in the middle of EVERYTHING-what a difference a year makes.

Even though we took outside ride along toys, one Ella got there with her baby dolls, that was ALL Lyllian could focus on... If she pushed the shopping cart around once, she pushed it a million times!!!

She LOVED the cart-maybe she will get one for Christmas?!?!

We did ride on our lion some though, only backwards-she hasn't figured out how to go forward yet.

Isn't she just AH-DORABLE!!!

We learned how to "love" on Kate (even though kate had it down pat a little better-but she has a big sister) We hung out with Grammie for a photo op...

We played baby dolls with Kate...

We were all smiles, even at the end. We did fall asleep within the first two minutes of leaving though.-ha!

A Night at Grammie's

My parents kept Lyl for me tonight while I was at church working Awanna's. Pops (my dad) pulled out my old Fisher Price Little People house. She LOVED playing with it! I guess this is technically her first doll house!
Happy Wednesday!

Happy Labor Day

Whew! We have had a very busy weekend!

We started the weekend HAVING to eat dinner with our Bunny that we had forgotten existed 20 minutes prior to dinner. Honestly, she found this bunny in her stuffed animal basket and you would've thought she had been missing it for awhile. In fact, it is already back in the basket and has not been played with since. Friday night we met up with my parents at Danver's. Lyllian always wants to sit in a chair like a big girl, since there weren't very many customers, I let her sit in a booster seat. She loved it and did GREAT while she was eating. But, just as I expected, once she was finished she wanted down, now she sometimes wants down from her highchair too, but she is more contained in that than the booster seat. Needless to say, we didn't stay long after she finished eating.

We did stay long enough for her to draw her first piece of artwork. I know she is a budding artist. I, of course, saved her artwork and will hang it on the fridge.
Please excuse the quality of the above pictures, they were all taken on my phone.
Saturday was a great Mommy day-I was able to get a pedicure with some girls from work and do a little shopping. I picked Lyllian up and we ended the day with a cookout at Grammie & Pops's.
Sunday we went to a BBQ at the Sutherlen's. We had a blast and so did Lyllian, she probably walked 5 miles while we were at their house. She had a great time trying to keep up with the other kids that were there, in fact she was asleep before we got out of their driveway! Of course, I forgot my camera. She also LOVES bbq, she ate off of both mine and Tim's sandwiches.
Monday we had some friends over to cookout and Linda took some pics for us. They turned out GREAT!!! These are just a sneak peek-Grandparent's Day is coming up and I can't give away all the secrets, especially since the grandparents read the blog...

September is for APPLES!!!

We got tired of pictures and we were getting hungry...

But by the end we were all smiles again!
I think I need another day off just to rest from the weekend-ha!
I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day-here's to a four day week!!!
