No, I’m not a 10 year old boy, but I’m still so excited!


For those of you who missed it or couldn’t find me (since we turned off our cable I only watched it this morning online!) here’s a clip of the show that aired on Oct. 19th.  If you watch at 4 mins 13 secs in, you’ll see me standing at the barricade with my sign in front of it.  I’m wearing sunglasses and holding my camera.  You can see my girl, Kellie, in the green dress next to me.  If you’d like my autograph, please send my a self addressed envelope and $500.  Thanks! 

Isn’t the house beautiful?!?!?!

This post is for all my parents of little ones out there.  I have discovered these and they are so amazing that I had to share.

That’s right.  Boogie wipes.  Miles has had the sniffles this past week and his little nose was raw from all the wiping.  It’s made him really cranking.  I came across Boogie wipes at Wal-Mart while I was searching for baby cold remedies.  They are wet and actually have saline in the wipes.  So not only do the wipe off the runny nose, they get off the crusties and the saline helps to clear up his sinuses so you’re actually wiping their noses less.  I know this isn’t very exciting or profound, but I was so amazed by this product, I just had to share!

So it’s only taken me a week to get back here and tell you all how our date went.  It was nice and quiet.  We didn’t quite know what to do with ourselves, but it was really nice.  We went to PF Chang’s for some yummy food!  We split the lettuce wraps, mongolian beef, and moo shu pork.  My mouth is watering as I type.  Then we walked around the plaza and stopped at Dean and Deluca’s for a little coffee and something sweet.  After that we headed over to Border’s to have a little quiet reading time.  I ended up buying something for the baby, but that’s okay.  All in all it was great!  Thank you, Elevation!!!!

Over the past few weeks our church has been doing a series titled “Visionary Love, Dream Sex”.  (I’ll give you one guess what it was about.)  One of the points Pastor Furtick has really been stressing is that men need to still be romantic and take their wives out for dates.  So this past Sunday, the church decided to put their money where their mouths are.  Elevation gave out vouchers for $30/married couple for restaurants around the Charlotte area as well as cards to send in to have 3 hours of babysitting reimbursed!  That is so cool!  Tonight we have sitter and to celebrate our anniversary that was on Wednesday, we going to PF Chang’s tonight.  I’m really looking forward to it since I’ve heard how great their food is.  I’ll let you all know how it goes!

Today is our 8th anniversary.  For all you math geniuses out there, yes, we had Kalliope before we were married.  So Kalliope was there at our wedding.  I know how cliche it sounds, but I really love him more and more each day.  It’s those little things that make me love him more.  When he’s throwing Zane up in the air, when he’s giving the kids a bath, when he’s dancing with Kalliope, when he’s playing guitar for Miles, when he still opens every door for me, tells me I’m beautiful and that he lovesme everyday, …  He’s an amazing husband, father, and man.

 I love you, baby!



Saturday after the autism walk, we took Miles to get his first haircut.  He’s been needing one badly and I got tired of people say, “Isn’t she pretty!”.  He did pretty well, even took a phone call, that is until the hairdresser pulled out the clippers.  Then he was not happy.  He looks so handsome, though!

Saturday the family headed up to Lowe’s Motor Speedway for the annual Walk Now for Autism.  It was a beautiful day for it and the kids held up pretty well.  Surprisingly Kalliope didn’t complain very much.  As of this post, the walk raised over $340,000 to go towards autism research!    Here are some pictures from that day.
