Well.  hello there.  let's use bullets, shall we?

  • I have NOT been doing a good job with this blogging thing.  For some crazy reason, I envisioned that I'd have hours of free time when the boys started school and I only had Hampton at home.  wrong.  I didn't factor in that a lack of sleep and showering on a semi-daily basis would get in my way.  As all mama's will tell you, the first few weeks with a newborn are foggy.  I am beginning to feel the fog lift..
  • I am getting more sleep now because I finally bought the MOM'S ON CALL 0-3 Month Seminar.  I first learned about Moms On Call through my friend Erin.  After the first night, I called Erin to tell her IT WORKED!  AND OH MY GOSH I FEEL LIKE I COULD RUN A MARATHON!  I am sure she hung up laughing while doubting my sanity.  It's amazing how enthusiastic a few straight hours of sleep will make you.  And if you aren't reading Erin's blog Blue-Eyed Bride you are missing out.      
  • This is my last week of "taking it easy".  I had my 6 week appointment Tuesday and got the go ahead to jump back in at the gym and {mom, stop reading now} to jump back into "other things"....ewww.  That's all I have to say about both of those things.  Seriously though,  I have to lose these last few 10-15 pounds and it's not gonna happen eating the wonderfulness that is a Triple-Double Oreo.  
  • I worked for the first time this week since having the baby.  It felt good to squeeze into my fat pants and use my brain for something other than "mommy stuff".  It didn't feel good to leave my little man.  My future-sister-in-law came to our house to keep him...she is a nurse {and a baby nurse at that} so I had absolutely no concerns with leaving him with her.  Knowing her infant CPR is up-to-date and that she could put in an IV with household items if need be didn't hurt either.   
  • This came in the mail yesterday.  Does anyone else live for this trip to the mailbox once a month like me?  
  • Funny story.   When Lee got home, he picked my magazine up to flip through it and I literally flipped on him.  PUT IT DOWN.  I look at it first, mister. 
  • And Facebook.  Why do you keep changing?  I don't care that much, but now everyone's post for the next week is gonna be about how much they hate you.  I saw this on Pinterest and spit Coke through my nose.

  •  I also got a new planner a few weeks ago.  And if you are related to me, have spent any amount of time with me, or are breathing near me, I have told you about my new planner and may or may not have pressured you to buy one and be as cool as me.  I am literally making plans JUST to have something to write down EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. DAY. AND. NIGHT.  {If you own said planner, you totally got that and are laughing out loud right now because you do the same thing}  Case in point, on Monday, September 5th, I wrote "Home All Day."  Really?  I die.  Now if you want to buy one too...go here and tell them Misty sent you.  That will mean nothing to them, but everything to me.  ha.  

  • Look at these cute football players!  This football season we had several away games to start the season so we just had family and friends over here to watch the games.  When Lee and I were building, we dreamed about watching football on our back porch!  We have loved it and can not wait to have a fire out there....and watch our own "little team" play in the backyard!

  • One last thing.  If you just read all of these bullets and are still with me will you please comment on this post?    One year ago, I convinced Lee that I needed a blog makeover because I had "so many readers"  ha!    I want to show him that tonight that people are actually reading this.  For me? Please?

  4. Misty, your blog is just precious! I Giggle a lot at what you say b/c I feel like it's what I'm thinking already. So sorry your six weeks is here for both reasons LOL!!! Your family is darling!

  5. Hi Misty! I'm reading....saw your post on FB about your blog a while back. Love your posts (had to go all the way to the beginning to read it all). Good to see that you are doing well. Hampton is adorable....so are Tradd and Jackson. Commenting because you asked me to! Kristi(Crider)Hornsby (AHS Class of '95)!!

  6. I get excited everytime that you post. I am sure that I will be entertained!

    Take care,

  7. Misty, I love reading your blog.... It's that little piece of the south I'm missing up here in NY. I love reading about your boys. Having a 4 month old I can totally relate. Keep bloggin away, I look forward to readin. :)

  8. I absolutely love reading your blog girl! You are so so good at this. I can't wait to meet sweet Hampton and am so glad that I get to see how you're doing through your blog. Keep blogging. Love it!

  9. I get excited when the new sl arrives, but more excited when I open your blog and there is a new entry. Spent some long overdue time with your southern mama, some of it remembering when YOU were the southern baby and you were equally entertaining then.
    Write on. L, Jo

  10. word to your mother!

  11. I'm reading!!! Love, love, love!

  12. So glad you didn't mention your friend who stood you up on Friday due to 3 ailing boys...(that was an interesting trip to the doctor)! Any who... I need to do 3 things... 1 order my EC planner! I was torn btw it and the momagenda again. #2 reschedule my visit with you so you have something to write in your planner. #3 steal your comment plug. My readers have grown a good bit but NO ONE comments. It frustrating for a blogger!
    Love you!!!!

  13. I'm READING! Not as often as I should but nonetheless.....as often as I get a chance! :)
