It's our first night in our new house tonight! And Benny's first night in his own room!

There is an amazing lightning storm outside, along with a tornado watch. Did I mention it's tornado season here now? The storms can get pretty hectic sometimes! It's usually pretty intense to sit and watch. For instance, right now, for five minutes straight, the sky lit up literally every half a second! When I was here as a teen, we used to drive out to the middle of field-land and watch the storms in all their glory!

Have a good night to all!

PS Our first guest room is ready for reservations!

The Business of Babies

This is not a talk about the birds and the bees :) This is a talk about my new business. Well, my new website for a business I've been trying to get some wings on. Baby product consultations. The Baby Aisle. It's what I know and love, why not use it to help other people and bring in a little money! Most people don't take the time to do the research necessary when purchasing products for the little ones. Not that they are buying unsafe products, but with todays' market, when there are so many choices available, why not get exactly what suits you and your lifestyle! And that's where I come in. Knowing the right questions to ask and where to look for the answers can make a big difference.
For now, my site is a blog that is being constantly updated with pointers and reviews and incentives (free gift to the first ten signers!) to become a client. Go to to get your baby needs taken care of!!!

Um, Say What?

Is there anyone else out there who is wondering when this illusive season they call 'Summer' may be coming? I am beginning to believe this is just so we don't complain so much about the winters! Tell us there is this great, hot season that comes soon after; tell us we can go swimming, yes, swimming; not have to layer up. YEA RIGHT!! I'm telling you, it's a lie! All a lie!

I'd probably even be happy if it were in the 80's, I don't need the standard high 90's to 100's. Just not 58. Because that's the current temperature here in Iowa. 58 degrees.


On a happier note, I fall more in love with Benny every day, if possible! He is at the most adorable stage, learning new things all the time. Really, he is just surprising me with his understanding of what's going on around him. He really gets things! And he really gets into things! He is slowly adding new words, or what sounds like words anyway. He points to things that are actually there now! He takes his little walker and runs everywhere! Ain't no stopping him now...:)

One of the funniest things he is doing these days is dancing to every drop of music he hears. It's awesome. I can sit and watch him for hours. If only he would sit for that long!

Everywhere we go with him, people stop what they're doing to talk to him. It's very interesting to see how people change around a baby, drop all their guards, become someone else!

We are still not fully into our house yet. We got this amazing deal on a bedroom set, it was originally $250, we found it clearanced for $62. It's a dresser, night-stand, headboard, and mirror. Beautiful too. Nice oak. It was brand new, in the box. They are just bringing in a new furniture company! Score!!

Anyway, if anyone wants our new mailing address, email me and I'd be more than happy to share it!
Have a good night!!!
