We have entered the world of....


Tyler has decided he wants to wear no clothes so it is easier to go potty. I would be fine with this if he made it to the potty all of the time.

So it has been a battle of wills the last 2 weeks.

He undresses I redress him, he undresses I redress him. Some day he would spend all day in pull ups(he no longer likes diapers).

But there was a break through today. He undressed went potty and then tried to redress on his own!!!!

I think it was because he really like to wear any article of clothing with Thomas the Tank Engine on it. So I am thinking if I keep him Thomas clothes he will redress himself.

On the potty front he goes pee pee in the potty very well and will even tell me.

I think that is pretty good for a 2.5 yr old and no forcing by mommy or daddy. He is doing this on his own!

Tailgating Fun

We had so much fun tailgating at the Jimmy Buffett concert on Saturday!!!!

We got there around 1130am set up by noon. We had a sweet set up. A "kitchen" under one canopy, a "pool house" under another and under the tird was our "living room". We also had our own portable toilet(like the ones you take camping).

We had all kinds of fun decorations and a vote for Jimmy for president! If you signed the patition you got a prize it was colorful and to be used with someone you love ;0).

We eat hamburgers, hot dog, chips. cookies and drank lots of liquids(beer and water).

Then at about 7pm we packed up most of the stuff and at 730 we headed in to the ball park.

We sat and waited for the show to start at 8pm and then the rain drops started. I looked at Matt and was like let's head up to the concourse. Well we didn't make it. We got soaked. Then we waited in line for some dry tshirts. At about 9pm Jimmy opened with Let get drunk and you know.

We had a great time watching him play til about 11pm. Before the oncore Matt nad I headed back to the parking lot to see how our friends that stay back to watch the cars(it is Philly you know). Then after the second oncore there were some firecrackers.

We are already planning for next years tailgate party!!!!

I will post pictures tomorrow. I have to do some editing.

Here is another one....

I feel like i am on a roll here. 2 layouts in two days.

I got inspiration for this layout at

I am hoping to work on another tonight!

On another note it is HOT, HOT, HOT here. I can't wait for this heat to break on Wednesday! It has been over 90 for like 3 days now.

It is way to hot to go out and Tyler's blow up pool has some holes in it so I have to get him a new one sometimes this week. We have tried the hose on sprinkle but I think he doesn't like because the water is too cold for him when it comes out.

I am also thinking I am going to get a stand up fan for the living room to help move air. We already have 2 fans in our bedroom to help move air at night. One day we are going to get ceiling fans in the bedrooms and we may look into getting a fan in the living room.

Thanks for reading!

Here it is.....

As promised here is the layout I scrapped a few days ago!

It felt good to finally sit down and create. It has been so long since I scrapped a layout for myself. I have been busy with swap stuff and circle journal scrapping that I forgot all about scrapping for myself.

I am hoping to create some more tonight. I signed up got Got Sketch 101. It is a online sketch class that starts tomorrow and I can't wait! I have a ton of supplies but never get to use them.

Changing topics here.....

Yesterday we went bicycle shopping for Matt and I. We are giving up our Y membership to help cut back on expenses since gas and food are getting so expensive and Matt is going to start riding with some dad's from my MOMS Club on the weekends and I am going to do some riding with some friends so we can get some exercise and help us lose a few pounds.

So here are out new kids(both are Treks):

We also got a carrier for the Escape:

So now we have no excuses not to get out and ride!

Thanks for reading!!!!
