18 Months Old

Time has flown by so quick! Addyson is already a year and a half old. It seems like we just had her first birthday party   she was just born. Our sweet baby girl has been growing like crazy this month.

  • She can now wear 24 month clothes
  • She loves her baby dolls so much. She rocks them and says shhh,shhhh,shhhh to make them go night night!
  • She is crazy in love with her Uncles.... and I think that they are in love with her.
  • She is repeating everything (and I mean everything) we say.
  • She says so many words now that I can't even keep track of them all.
  • She learned to sing "Deep and Wide"
  • She can spell her name A-D-D-Y.
  • Her favorite foods right now are any kind of fruit and oatmeal especially apple cinnamon oatmeal!
  • She got to meet her new cousin baby Gavin for the first time!
  • She went and visited her Papa at his work and saw the big firetrucks.
  • We went to the park and she wasn't to sure about all the sand getting in her shoes or the grass on her hands when she fell down.
  • She loves milk alot!
  • She loves going to Chick-fil-a on kids night to see the cow. She loves the cow so much she let him hold her. We were completely shocked!
  • She loves wearing her sunglasses.
Our baby girl is growing so fast. She is learning new things everyday. It is so crazy how time flies. She will be turning 2 before we know it!

Best Drive Thru Ever

So my husband has been on to me for 2 weeks now that it was past due to get our oil changed. I usually take it to Walmart and wait for about an hour and a half and Addyson gets really irritated and tired of being in the cart. I have been putting it off for just that reason I did not want to have to wait that long and have to take Addyson out of the car. So I decided to try out the Valvoline. It is a DRIVE THRU!!!!! We didn't even have to get out of the car and it only took about 20 minutes. It was so great. The people were very friendly and explained everything that they were doing on my level (cause I do not know anything about cars)! It was just a great experience I will definetley be going back there and it will be on time because I won't be dreading it!
There is even a $6 off coupon on there website.

To Be That Size Again...

Okay so tonight I have finally came to that realization that I really, really, really need to loose weight!!! Starting tomorrow, because if I drag it out any longer it is going to get worse! Whenever I set my mind to the whole working out thing and I start seeing results I really get down to business. My goal is to loose 30 pounds! ha! That is a big goal I know but it is what has to be done to actually look halfway decent in a bathing suit this summer because we all know I will never look like this again

I mean really this is before my sweet baby girl and before Jimmy and I were married. Ahhh to be that size again! Wish me luck on my weight loss endeavor!! I need all the encouragement I can get.... I really need to stick with this ! Oh yeah I was looking at some weight loss blogs and this is what I found at The Token Fat Girl

"I'm still following the "S" plan (no snacks, sweets or seconds except for days that begin with S or special occasions) and it really has cut out a lot of excess eating."

Coupon Crazy

So it is Monday AGAIN... This weekend just has flown by, but we had fun while it lasted. On saturday we went and visited Addyson's Papa at his work.We had visited him one time before but Addyson was really little. She enjoyed it a little more this time then the first time. All the big fire engines with all the buttons to press inside looked like a whole lot of fun to her.

I have been trying extra hard to save us money on our groceries... I have been getting on to all the coupon sites and printing out the coupons that I will need for the week. It is really helping out a lot! Today I got a bunch of new coupons in the mail ( Thanks to Freebies 4 Moms) I also got 6 FREE PAMPERS diapers in the mail with coupons. That  was really exciting. It is like Christmas at my house when I go to the mail box and find all the free samples and coupons. I just love getting free samples and coupons! After getting all those coupons in the mail today and all the coupons yesterday out of the sunday paper it was just very unorganized! Too many coupons.... believe me I am not complaining. So I started looking for something to organize all of the coupons that I have and I came up with this

You can get this off of ebay  for $5.99! I will let you know if it works when I get it which will hopefully be soon. Sometimes whenever I am shopping at the grocery I sometimes forget that I have a coupon for something and pay full price for it. Yuck.  (Which it is not like I have any other distractions... ha!) I am hoping this organizer will keep me from doing that!
