Project 365: Day 22- July 8th

Shucks. I only took two pictures today, ugh. I'm still getting the hang of this whole Project 365 thing again, haha! But anyways-- E and I ran errands today :) We ran to our old town to pick up some mail, went to Sam's Club to pick up Tayler's formula, ran to Dollar General to pick up some Baby Oragel and CDs for our wedding reception, and then to Walmart for some good ol' birth control, haha! Ethan was complaining that it was $9.00. I said, "Would you rather pay 9 bucks now or 4,000 dollars in 9 months?" He settled for the 9 bucks LOL. And sorry, was that TMI? I thought it was pretty funny, haha! :)

Once we got home, Mom ordered some Pizza Hut pizza (veggie and meatlovers ;)) and we all settled in to chow down on that and some cheese curls. Tayler's a pretty big fan of those, haha! :)

And then after chowing down, I worked on getting all of the CDs together for our wedding reception :) We have about 5 hours of music... sounds good to me!

Project 365: Day 21- July 7th

So first off-- we woke up this morning and our cable box service was cut out. Turns out you can't take your DVR box with you when you move... or they think you stole it. Go figure, right? Even though we paid for the installation not even a month ago... and we had six months free. Eek! So, we had to return our old DVR box (along with allllll of the shows I'd had recorded on there.. UGH!) and get a new one. She's definitely not as pretty as our old one, haha!

So, we have that set up now and our shows are recording on the new one. YAY :)

I also received my Scentsy order in the mail today... which included the new Scent of the Month-- HAPPY BIRTHDAY and let me tell you. It smells AMAZING :) It's only $4.50 this month. Check out here if you're interested in learning more: 

and here's the beautiful warmer it sits in. Cute, huh? :) It matches our room PERFECTLY.
and I made dessert tonight. Brownies with cool whip, chocolate chips, and chocolate syrup. It was scrumptious!

Project 365: Day 20- July 6th

I was lazy again today. Partly because I felt terrible... partly because we're all still exhausted. How can you be exhausted from vacation, right? It's incredible. We just were on the go so much, it's taking a lot to catch up. Whoo! So, we were bums again today, haha! Tayler napped a good bit, bless her heart... and I took advantage of catching up with E on my DVRed shows-- One Tree Hill, Pretty Little Liars, Tosh.0, and America's Got Talent. Don't let him fool you. He watches them ALL. :)

I made brownies too. I guess I didn't feel THAT bad, haha! They were the fudge-y kind. Yummo. We added powder sugar to them since we didn't have icing. Incredible. Period.

While I was baking those, I decided to pack E's lunch for work. I had this brilliant idea to take a fresh jalapeno pepper and chop it up for his salad. But DURR... I didn't think to WASH my hands after. I started rubbing my lips.. and wouldn't you know it... MY WHOLE MOUTH WAS ON FIRE. I thought I was dying until I figured out what I did.... *smacks head* Genius right here, folks!

I also took some time to work on the playlist for our wedding reception. I think I have them all organized. Now-- burning them on to CDs! Make a note, please? :)

Then it was play time with the Tayter-Monster!! Gigi and I played with her for quite awhile... she's such a fun, happy baby! And she's sucking on her hands. Teething? Probably in our future!

And check out those 'socks' :) They came with my new peejays and I HAD to wear them, haha!

Cheers to Project 365!!

Baby #2

I see a preggo belly and boy....

It makes me want another!

I LOVE Tayler with all of my heart. I LOVE her being here, but boy, my heart aches to have another baby soon. 

Oh, I know what you're thinking you crazy people! No, I'm not SERIOUSLY considering it, haha! We are currently living with my parents to save up enough money to purchase a house by May 2012... but inside, I could cry thinking about bringing a beautiful new life into this world.

I LOVED being pregnant. It was seriously the BEST :) (Minus morning sickness, but I suppose that comes with the territory, right?) And I miss it. I miss rubbing my tummy. I miss feeling the kicks. I miss hearing the heartbeat... and wondering what they're going to look like.

Tayler is 3 months old and we've already discussed when we are planning (key word) on having another one. If all goes well with the purchase of a house, we want to start trying between June-August 2012. (We have a 3 month window. After that, the factory is closed until the summer of 2013. I'm not playing, haha. I DO NOT want to be pregnant during the summer. Period!) If that isn't crazy enough, we've already picked out names if it's a boy or girl! :) No, I'm not telling until the time ;) haha!

Thinking about it.. I've even decided that I want a Gender Party to reveal the baby's sex to our friends and family the 2nd time around. I didn't know about them when I had Tayler, but after seeing my friends throw them, I want one too! How exciting would that be?? :)

So, here's my emotions going into a blog because I can't have a baby right now... and not even that I can't.. I shouldn't and won't! And that's tough to hear sometimes, haha!

Project 365: Day 19- July 5th

I declared day a relaxation day for Tayler. Seriously, since Thursday, this girl has been on the go... and she has literally only had like 3 bottles at home since then! I felt so bad. She was exhausted, I was exhausted. So, I told her that today was a stay-at-home-day :) And my goal was for her to have every bottle at home... and we did it! :) I hung out with her all day and got some things organized in her new bedroom while my mom stripped wall paper, packed things up in my brother's room, and my dad and her moved them downstairs. Hope you're okay with seeing this Corey. We still love you, haha!

While working on that, we worked on a roast for dinner and I made little pudding treats for everyone :) It's just chocolate pudding, cool whip, with chocolate chips on top, hehe! It was yummy if I do say so myself!

Then Tayler and I settled in so I could catch up on my DVRed shows while my other shows were recording, haha! I was so behind from the weekend. I had to catch up on Secret Life of the American Teenager, Amsale Girls, Bridezillas, and of course-- my game shows! :) Tomorrow's agenda is Pretty Little Liars, One Tree Hill, and Tosh.0 :)

While catching up on my shows, I had a fussy baby and we're pretty sure we've narrowed down why: TEETHING. I'm not saying she's getting teeth, but I'm almost positive the process is beginning. She's slobbering a lot, she's constantly finding something to chew on (most of the time it's her fingers or ours, haha)... and last night, that was the only thing that would soothe her, poor baby :( Here she is trying to relax in her swing:

She didn't feel good at all, bless her heart. 

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 16- July 2nd

We spent all day today at the Kalahari. Amazing place to be :)

If you've never been here... GO! haha!

We went putt-putting today... it was sweet inside! It was a Glo-n-Putt. Pretty cool, huh? 

And the winning team in putt-putt was:

Yep, you guessed it, haha! Tayler had the best score, though. She completed 9 holes of putt-putt with a "0." Impressive.

Then we bowled (and yes, all of this was in the hotel!) and guess who the winning team was at that??

Eh' whatever. No one really likes them anyways ;) haha!

And here's the whole crew that went:

We had an AMAZING time!!!! :) I can't wait to go back next year! :)

Project 365: Day 18- July 4th

Our 4th of July started by going to the Depot :) It was sooooo yummy! I got the chicken tenders and fries with their AMAZING honey mustard sauce. It was sooo good! Plus, we took time to take some pictures. Here's me and my sweet baby girl!

And we went to Matt and Carrie's house. We miss our friends!! :( Ethan and Tayler hung out on the swing for quite some time. We love porch swings around these parts, haha!

And we HAD to share this picture... Tayler knows what kisses are now and opens her mouth wide to give them, haha! I love it! :)

Then we went with my parents and walked around at Zane Landing. We were sooo excited for Tayler's first fireworks.. y'all have no idea, haha! And here's Tayler's 2nd July 4th outfit (we had two for the day... above is what she wore in the morning hehe!) Here's Papaw and Tayler:

And the hubby and me posed for a picture as we were awaiting the fireworks:

And FINALLY at 9:45PM the fireworks began! Tayler LOVED them! I didn't think she'd really care, but boy oh boy, she was paying attention with HUGE eyes, haha!

Mommy and Tayler had a little snuggle time during fire works, then it was Daddy's turn :)

We had a great first fourth of July with Tayler!! :)

PS Did anyone else see a 'UFO sighting' during the fireworks display on July 4th, 2011???

Project 365: Day 17- July 3rd

Sunday was a pretty boring day. We drove.. and we drove... and we drove, haha!

By the time we got home from the Kalahari it was 4PM and I was busy getting things unpacked while E was getting ready for work.

It was a mess in our room, haha! :)

And I have an AMAZING story to tell you!

We went to Huntington Bank on our way home and E lost his debit card outside of the car... we didn't realize it and we drove off. Ethan calls me on his way to work freaking out because he can't get gas and can't purchase a drink because he lost his debit card. I'm heartbroken because I know the process of getting it back. So, I headed to the grocery store. When we pulled in the garage, my phone started ringing. I answered it and it was my friend Martha. She said, "Alyssa, did Ethan get his debit card back?" I was like, "How did you know we lost our debit card?" and she said, "My step-sister posted on Facebook that she found a debit card with the name Ethan B____" on it at Huntington and if anyone knows him, please let him know! So, I got in my car and headed over to her house and picked it up!! God is soooo good to us!! :)
