Girl Talk Thursday! Twilight!

What is Girl Talk Thursday? It’s a chance to gossip and giggle, to speculate, to say bad words, to down a Margarita or rant (or rave) about your sex life. Even if weekly happy hours are an event from your former life, you can still take time to connect with your bloggy sisters. Grab the salt, a slice of lime, lick your wrist, and go.

This week were talking about... TWILIGHT!

I personally LOVE it! I'm hooked. After I seen the movie, I had to go get New Moon, and then I had to watch the movie again!! And thanks to Annette at Fairy Blog Mother I can! I won her giveaway for the 2 disc special edition of Twilight! I've watched it twice since I got it in the mail! lol

My anniversary was Monday, and my husband bought me Breaking Dawn and Eclipse, and the Complete Illustrated Movie Companion book! (He totally rocks!) I have yet to get a chance to start Eclipse, but I am itching to get started!

I didn't read the first book, so I'm not sure which is better, but the movie rocks. The only downfall for me was the character that played Bella, BUT since I have not read the first book, that may be bad judgement. I just felt like she lacked any kind of enthusiasm for Edward. But again, that could just be me.

It's vampires, romance, and forbidden love, what more could a girl (like me anyway) ask for?

Head over to Mommy Melee and join us for Girl Talk Thursday!

Bad mommy moments

Yeah, so lately I'm feeling like a crappy mommy.
A few weeks ago, I needed to take a shower when my hubby was at work. So, like always I put my Nugget in his bouncer seat, and got ready to get in the shower. I went to get a towel, only to hear a really loud cry! Go back into the bathroom to see my son face down on the bathroom floor, his butt still strapped in the chair. Apparently, he is too big for the chair! Bad mommy moment #1!
I already blogged about my daughter having to get stitches about a month ago. My poor baby, now has a huge scar. Well, its not really all that big, but it is very visible! I say this is a bad mommy moment because I should have made her stop jumping around! Bad mommy moment #2!
Last night, I put Chase to sleep like normal, in our bed, with pillows around him. He fell off the bed. We have hardwood floors. I cried, he giggled. Bad mommy moment #3!
I'm hoping these moments go away soon, though I know they wont. I've probably had a million bad mommy moments since the birth of my daughter!

Not Me Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not moan and groan at the thought of going to my sister in laws BBQ this weekend so I could finish New Moon. How rude would that be?

I did not look at myself naked in the mirror and hope to see results after only 3 days of dieting and working out. Nope.

I did not call my best friend a Bee-yotch for taking a road trip and stopping at Jack in the box on the way, and sending me a picture! Nope I sure didn't!

I did not let my daughter play outside in the back yard, all day long, so I could read my book.

I did not finish New Moon, in one weekend, and ignore all the housework that needed to be done!

Betcha Didn't Know...

That I have duck toes! Yep, thats right, my toes are webbed! Think that would get me my own show at a circus? My friends used to tease me saying that! AND my daughter was lucky enough not to get my toes, but my son did not escape it! Poor guy, he gonna have to explain to his friends one day that his mom is a freak of nature and it passed on to him! Just thought I would share that fun bit of info, I bet if you head over to Barking Mad you would understand!

The Biggest Loser?!

Kailan has been my best buddy since the 3rd grade, (that's a long freakin time in case you were wondering!) and she has always had scatter-brained ideas! But her latest and greatest idea takes the cake!
There are 4 of us buddies, Kailan, Kristie, Megan and me. We are all pretty big girls, with the exception of Megan, but she just had a baby so ya know, she has that battle! Anyway, I guess we are going to have a Biggest Loser contest, and see who can lose the most weight! It's not gonna be a competition, we are going to help each other. And yes, this was all Kailan's idea!
Were starting tonight, we are all going to the gym, and working out together! I have to say I'm not too excited about revealing to anyone how much I weigh, even to my best buddies, but I'm sure there could be worse things to face! Maybe saying it out loud to other people will help motivate me. I had said in a different blog post that I needed to lose weight, and I was going to stop drinking soda and on and on. Well needless to say, I didn't do it. I have a Pepsi staring back at me right now! But I think that with my friends doing something to help themselves and also supporting me, that I CAN do it!
I tried to find a recent photo of myself so I could post a before photo but I'm ALWAYS the one behind the camera! Maybe I can get my hubby to take one when he gets home. Anyway, just wanted to share about my new adventure!

Just because!

So, my baby boy is 7 months old today. It goes by soo freakin fast! Savannah has an appointment on the 31st for preschool! Oh I dread that day so much, I know Im gonna bawl my eyes out! Oh well, its the way it goes, I suppose!

I just had to post this pic! Savannah is wearing the cute Little Miss Matched Pj's that I won from The Not So Blog blog and What Mommies Need during their Mardi Gras giveaways! And Chase is wearing his cute Eco Friendly onsie from Green Baby Clothing that I was lucky enough to win from Feisty Frugal and Fabulous!! I gotta say Im really enjoying these blog contest! They are so much fun to enter, and of course I love winning! But I think my favorite thing about blog giveaways is finding all the cool little shops and meeting all the bloggers! Im sure though since the weather is getting nice and we will be outside most of the days to come, that I wont be winning near as much! I absolutely cannot wait until summer... water parks, swimming, camping... HERE I COME!

Oh well, enough of my rambling! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Wordless Wednesday

Now that I have a camera that works I can participate in Wordless Wednesday!!
3 days of nice weather in a row... 3 trips to the park!

Missing my G'ma tonight.

So, this might be a bit depressing, but I figured I'd post it anyway. I miss my G'ma so much it hurts, so I thought maybe writing her a letter would help? Who knows. But here it is.

I miss you. Its been such a long time, but I still wish you were here everyday. I wish you could be here to see what I've become, to see my children grow, to make me smile the way you did. It still hurts so deep in my heart when I look at your photos and know that I can't reach out and touch you. Its just not fair. People say that time heals everything, well I know that is just not true.
I have always regretted not letting you know how much I love you. I loved (and still do love) you so much G'ma. You were my rock when mom failed to be. You always knew just what to say, even about boys! GASP!! You put up with my crap, and still smiled. And moms and Aunt Janets lol! I just wish you were still here to put us in our place!
The other day I spelled grandma the way you told me to, G'ma, and my sister in law looked at me like I was crazy! You know, I didn't even know that wasn't the norm until that day! I just thought everyone abbreviated it like that, and who knows maybe they do, and my SIL is the one lost!
I got so mad the other day, the picture that you always had up in your living room of the two ships is now in my hallway. Jason ran into it and broke the frame. I got so upset and of course I cried because Im an emotional freak! But I think Im going to try to make it into a blanket. So it might be a good thing!
Anyway, I hope that you can look down and see us, and I hope that you are happy with what you see. Everything I am is because you made me that way! I love you and I miss you!
Always G'ma's Girl,
Sheila Marie
