Golden Birthday!

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Happy Birthday Charlie! Today is my sweet husbands birthday! He is 28 on the 28th:) I for one think birthdays should be really special. It is your one day that is all yours unlike a holiday or anniversary. So I plan to make it special tonight once I get home. I asked Charlie if he wanted me to make him a special dinner and he said nothing jumped out at him?? I knowing my husband then asked him if he would like Burger King. We never go because the burgers make me sick. So for this special occasion I can handle some chicken from there and get him whatever he wants:) Honey, that is how much I love you! lol Anyway he asked for gift cards to Lowes so that he can do whatever he wants with the yard and any tools he needs. Turned out good for him. He should have a pretty good time there the next time he goes!

On Sunday we had lunch with my parents at Christina's. Yummy mexican food:) Then we wandered into Best Buy and he got 2 xbox games with a gift card he had. Savi managed to squeeze in a dvd from her daddy too:) Then we went to Target because I had a gift card and just bought random stuff. I found a butterfly bank that is perfect for Savi's room in the dollar bin! I have been looking for one so I was thrilled! Got a baby pool for the summer and some other odds and ends. Later we went over to Charlie's parents for fried chicken and homemade chocolate cake. Great day with family!

Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Power To Choose!

Monday, April 27, 2009

So up until recently Charlie and I were under the impression that we had no choice on our electricity provider! NOT TRUE! Apparently it is an unregulated commodity and we have many providers to choose from. They are not allowed to buy the rights to a neighborhood or anything like that. For whatever reason when we closed on our house we were handed a sheet with our providers on it. CoServ was the only one listed. So with them we went. I don't know if there is a kickback to someone if they push us to use them or what. But either way we will be changing. According to this website which shows you all the providers and there cost, we could be getting a lot better of a deal. Plus we can lock in the rate! Thank you dad!

So I read an article a couple days ago about how to save money and one of them was to call your service providers for cable/internet etc. and start a bidding war. So I looked online and did all the research to see what dish network would cost me (my company's only competition) and made sure I had all the comparisons. I called my provider for cable/internet and told them I was thinking about canceling my service because dish was a lot cheaper. Suddenlink lowered my bill by $20 and sent me 4 $20 coupons in the mail to also take off my bill each month. She said there weren't any great specials at this moment but they come and go and I should call back after my coupons were done and see if we could get it lowered for good without having to use the coupons. Pretty cool I thought!

Happy Earth Day!

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

So I can't say that I consider myself SUPER eco friendly. I guess we kinda try. Charlie is a big advocate for keeping the lights off and I am big on no AC/heat if not needed. We selfishly do it to keep our bills down but it helps earth to right? At work I recycle:) In our neighborhood they have not gotten on the band wagon of recycle bins. It would be nice if they did though! Maybe someday. On a different note....Who is the best stay at home dad??? You guessed it...CHARLIE! He is doing so good with Savannah and I just love to hear about there day. I can only imagine when she gets bigger there adventures they will have during the day when mommy goes to work. I am sure there will be a lot of conversations that start out with "now don't tell mommy"..... lol Gotta love it!

First time....

Sunday, April 19, 2009

This weekend was a pretty nice weekend. Friday after work I went and got a haircut (a long over due haircut). I saw some pictures we took recently and was very blah about my hair. So for the first time in prob 10 or more years I got bangs! It turned out pretty good. I am still getting used to it. I have really thick hair so we also added some layers and texture to help. Charlie said he liked it alot:) Good man! On Saturday we hung out as a family in the morning and later I met Kristin for a movie. We saw Sunshine Cleaning. It was interesting but pretty good I guess. After I got home we took Savi to the park for the first time! It was a pretty day and I think she enjoyed it.
Sunday Savi and mommy relaxed. She took a 2 hour nap!! That is amazing for her. Savi likes to take 3-4 short naps instead of 2 longs ones. On the upside she slept thru the night at 2-3 months because she was always so tired from her short cat naps all day. I don't know what made her sleep so long today but I took a 2 hour nap this morning too. AMAZING:) Charlie is kinda sick and still working on feeling better. Hopefully he will get there soon. Hope you had a good weekend!

Bathroom Improvement

Friday, April 17, 2009

We have been wanting to paint our master bath and bedroom but you know how that goes when you have no time and a baby. Well we got an itch this week to paint the bathroom and we itched it! We picked out a color for both rooms but figured we would do one thing at a time. It really makes the room look nice and more elegant. I bought a couple things for the walls and ta da new and improved bathroom.

We will see when we get to the bedroom. That will be a huge project with all the furniture moving and size of the walls.

Happy Easter!

Sunday, April 12, 2009

We had a great weekend. Friday night Marissa, Paige, and mom and dad came over for dinner. Charlie made spaghetti (I had a burger, I hate spaghetti) and we broke in the dining room table. Later we played this game Charlie had gotten for Christmas called "Would You Rather?" It was hilarious and a great game. I def recommend it!

Saturday Charlie and I relaxed some and then I took Savi over to grandma's house to dye Easter egss. Later we went to dinner at On The Border. The highlight of my evening there was when Savi spilled an entire glass of water on my lap. I was soaked all the way through my pants. I finished my meal cold and wet:) Sunday we went to church and then I went and worked the brunch at the hotel. Charlie brought Savi to eat with me and we had a great time and good food! Had a quick stop at grandma and grandpa's for our Easter baskets and then went home. Savi got a lot of bath time toys, so we took a bath to try them out. All in all a wonderful weekend!

I am excited to say that the UNC Tarheels won the NCAA Championship. I was born a fan thanks to my dad. He grew up in Winston Salem and went to UNC. They pretty much dominated the game and did really well. When it gets warmer Savi has this cute little UNC dress to wear. I will be excited to try it out and officially make her a UNC fan just like her grandpa:)

Tyler Wedding

Monday, April 06, 2009

Charlie and I had a great time on our little trip to Tyler. Savannah did very well. Taking her out of her comfort zone is hard and she did great! We drove down Thursday night so Charlie could make it to the bachelor party. Friday was the rehearsal and then Saturday was the wedding. Savannah did great during the ceremony. She just played in my lap with the program and then I sat her in the grass next to me and she would grabs scoops of grass and watch it blow away. She was totally entertained and didn't make a peep (except for a sneeze:) )We drove home Saturday night. Great to spend time with all of the family and see the beautiful wedding of J'Vonne and Lee. Here are some pics from the weekend.

Savannah playing with her tea party in the hotel.

Happy Savi!

Daddy loves her!

I love him!

The happy couple!

Mil and Dil:)
