25 rAnDoM tHiNgS aBoUt Me

I'm sure you've probably seen this floating around Facebook and/or MySpace, but I thought I'd share it with the blog world. When I was tagged on Facebook, I contemplated even doing it because I thought, how in the world can I come up with 25 random things about me? I'm not a very random person...well, was I ever wrong?!?! After I started, I had trouble stopping! I could have gone on way past 25...so, here you go!

1. I am completely OCD when it comes to the way my towels are folded. It drives me crazy if they are not done the way I want them.
2. I have to have decorative klennex in my purse. I can't stand to have plain white ones!
3. I secretly love living in Dumas...never thought I'd admit that!
4. I have always wanted to live in New York City.
5. I have 100+ pairs of shoes in my very small closet
6. Someday, I want to have a super fast, super loud sports car
7. I'm going to have another nephew in June!!!!!!!!!!!!!
8. I have been blessed with the most beautiful baby boy!
9. I miss my family terribly
10. My bed has to be made a certain way; every pillow has its place
11. I absolutely crave margaritas. I can drink them like water.
12. I have completely different political views than some of my closest friends, but I love them anyway! =o)
13. It makes me sad everyday that my Dad is not here to share in Ethan's life with me.
14. I really want an iPhone
15. I am a night owl, always have been. And, I HATE mornings!
16. I swore I'd never own a Ford, now I own two, and I freakin' LOVE them!
17. I want to get my nose pierced again, but I realize I'm nearly 30 and am now a mom, and it's probably not appropriate anymore.
18. I love, love, love country music. The "hicker", the better!
19. I have a treadmill that I never use, but am fully aware that I should.
20. I would love to travel the world someday.
21. I trip over my own two feet.
22. I love the ocean, although I can't stand the sand and the heat
23. I think, no I'm convinced, that Texas IS the greatest place on Earth.
24. I miss my college days, but wouldn't change my life right now for any amount of money.
25. I love peaches and would gladly drive 9 hours to Fredericksburg to get some during the peach season.

Prune Mustache and Aquariums

Ethan has started eating big boy foods. I know he's only 2 months old, but whatever works! We've been adding rice cereal to his formula for a while now, but last week we introduced him to some fruits...bananas, peaches, applesauce, pears and PRUNES (gag!). Anyway, I thought I'd try and give him some prunes with a spoon. After he figured out what to do with his tongue, he was a big fan! As you can see in thus picture, he was NOT a big fan of mommy taking the spoon away!

Anyway, it was a fun experience. I think he likes prunes WAY too much, though!! I had almost as much fun cleaning him up as he did eating it. =o)

Last night after church, they gave Ethan a baby shower. It was a great time of fellowship and fun. He got so many wonderful things, including this play gym. He played himself right to sleep this morning! He was so excited to kick the ball at the bottom and play with the animals at the top - so cute!!!

I'm a Terrible Mom, but....

Last night, we met my mom and her friend Nancy in Amarillo for dinner (they were on their way to Dumas). Any of you who have been to Dumas know there is NO WHERE decent to eat, so Amarillo it is. We met them at Cheddar's and I decided I wanted to have a Pina Colada, and oh, it was GOOD!! Anyway, I shouldn't even share these pictures, but they were just too funny! I might get the "Worst Mom of the Year" award, but I'll have a good laugh getting it!

**No alcohol was injested by Ethan and no childern were hurt during these pictures**

This is What Happens When Dad Gets ahold of the Camera...

Last night, I was reviewing the pictures in my camera when I ran across these of Ethan. I asked Ronnie when in the world he took these pictures, and how in the world did I not know he took them?! Needless to say, this is what happens when Daddy gets the camera, unsupervised:Ethan will hate us for these pictures someday, but they were too funny not to share!!!

It's Official, I'm Going to Have a Nephew!

Monday, Stormy had another sonogram, and we found out they are having a boy!!! Ethan & I met her, my brother, Reesie, and Stormy's parents in Lubbock to celebrate. We are so excited they are having a boy!!! He & Ethan will have so much fun together. It was great to spend part of the day with them and share in their excitement. I can just imagine the shananigans Ethan and their son are going to get into one of these days - there's no telling what 2 boy minds can come up with! Not to mention, an older brother/cousin to add to the plotting & scheming! Oh well, it will be a blast!!!
