My Baby is NINE!

I can't believe Carson is nine!!

I went to buy him some new shoes (size 8 in MEN) last night and he wanted the old school Converse (Chucks). I didn't know why. I think they are cool cuz even Snoop wears the baby blue chucks. However, Carson was dead set on these plain black ones. Usually he loves the crazy lookin ones. I didn't want to argue so we bought them. I dropped him off at school where his girl(that is a) friend was waiting for him in her plain black chucks. LOL

Now I know why he was so dead set on those darn shoes. I did over hear her tell him that his shoes didn't match his outfit. hahaha I thought I was going to die!

I love you Carson!!!

My Guys!!

I am the luckiest women alive! I am so blessed to have these two men in my life. They are my everything!
I can't wait till we get married so we can perhaps maybe have a girl in the household (other than my dog Chewie).
Carson is the most crazy, funny, caring kid I know. He is my knight in shining armor. And OH BOY, does he love his mom and his Grammie!
Ron is the smartest, loving (not to mention hottest) man I know. He is my rock. I am who I am today because of him. I can't wait to be with him for the rest of our lives.

I am an April FOOL!!

Benson is my very favorite Nephew in the whole wide world!! I feel like a super freak because I just want to hang out with him all the time! He makes me so baby hungry!! YUM YUM YUM!

He is the cutest little man ever!

My sister Jamie text me today and said that she was organizing her bathroom, found a pregnancy test, took it and she is pregnant!

Of course I totally freaked---another baby in the fam!

How exciting!

AND I don't have to carry it, be sick, get fat, crave weird foods, get swollen all over, push it out, recover and still be fat??! HALLELUJAH! (Obviously I have my issues about being pregnant and I am NOT a fan)

Needless to say, Jamie GOT me GOOD! I was so excited, for about 5.6 seconds before I realized what day it was. I should have known better! I did spends an hour this morning popping all the keys off my assistants keyboard and replacing them all in the wrong spots, taping the ball under her mouse so she couldn't move it and placing tape over the receiver of her phone so the caller couldn't hear her!

Karma's a ..................WHAT??!!
