Accent Vlog

Some of  my favorite Twitter/Blog ladies have been doing the accent vlog, so I decided to join in
I don't think I have an extremely thich accent, but to people not from Alabama I might-ha!

And, just so you know, I feel so crazy posting this!

Here is the list of words you have to say:
aunt, route, wash, oil, theatre, iron, salmon, caramel, fire, water, sure, data, ruin, crayon, toilet, New Orleans, pecan, both, again, probably, spitting image, Alabama, lawyer, coupon, mayonnaise, syrup, pajamas, caught
The questions are:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on someone's house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it rolls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a large group of people?
What do you call a spider that has an oval shaped body with extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when it rains while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the tv channel with?

A little background about me and my "accent". I grew up in South Alabama, and after Josh & I got married moved even further south! We now live on the Gulf Coast and are super close to Mississippi {which is where people say ice box!}

23 Months

you turned 23 months on the 20th.
Only one month until you're 2. Only one month until you're not a "month-baby".
 You wear mostly 2t clothes, size 6 shoes, & size 5 diapers.
We are pretty sure you're going to be left-handed because you do everything with your left hand.
Your hair is semi-curly, and pretty strawberry blond color.
You love to talk and repeat everything you hear! Your favorite is "I got chooo" and you say it no matter what "you got"
You love to play games and sing songs. You love "Wheels on the Bus" and request it often.
You still love watching Sesame Street.
You were doing really good with potty training, but seem to have regressed instead of progress.
You have mastered the fork and spoon..but still prefer your finger 99% of the time!
You made a few new buddies this month & momma is SO happy to have play dates! :)
You are a little rough with them, but we're learning everyday to be easy.
You are a people person.
People always ask if you're daddy's girl or momma's girl, and honestly you're both!
You love to play the drums with daddy, but enjoy make-up with mommy.

We love you to the moon!

I forgot to blog about this until now, but I've started selling Scentsy!
If you're local, I'm having a launch party on the 26th.

If you're not local, but would like to host a party - let me know.
You can do an online party & still get all the same benefits!

And, just because I haven't posted a picture of this little cutie in a long time.

Erin Condren Life Planner.

This morning we had our first meet-up with Twitter/Blog friends.
We had an awesome time, and can't wait to do it again!

When we got home I saw a lovely package on my front porch.
My planner was finally here!

And y'all? I am in love!

The bright colors are fabulous!


The monthly calendar all on one page? Love it!
And you see those tabs? They're another favorite.


Love the 2012 & 2013 calendar on the back.

And, Erin Condren was kind enough to include some adorable labels.

I cannot say enough about how great Erin Condren customer service is!
After the horrible incident with the hacker, my order got a little messed up..but, she went above and beyond and made sure everything got correct.

I'm loving this company so much that I have an address book and more labels on the way!
