G's First Birthday

So now I have already began planning my son's first birthday party. My theme is Vintage Milk & Cookies. Although his birthday is not until June, I love to plan things like this and I want it to be well thought out and the more I get done now the less worrying later. So far I am about to order the glass milk jugs. I am searching for some more red & white striped PLASTIC straws. All I can find is paper. I have 12, but I am not sure that will be enough. I have not quite decided on the type of d├ęcor. I have a few inspirations, but I want it to be original. I am loving the red and brown, but am trying to figure out how to tie in some more colors. Another thing is weather I want to do the galvanized ice bucket with jugs or if I want to do the large drink dispensers. Questions...Questions..

Organization maybe..?

Today, my husband has went golfing. So along with taking care of G, I am trying to get together recipes to cook for dinner. My goal is to have easy, but healthy and tasty recipes I can make between school and taking care of G. So far I have pretty much hit up Pinterest. It is def many peoples go to place for recipes. So far, I have found a ton of chicken recipes, however my husband loves hamburger meat so I am looking to find some using it instead of chicken, but so far I am down on my luck. I have found a few interesting crock pot recipes I am anxious to try out. I have not yet cooked in my slow-cooker, but I am def ready to so cooking can be quite easier. Organization is my goal and if I could get some recipes set out for a whole month and break them into weeks, I feel it would be an easier grocery store trip and alot easier on decisions between my husband and I. I tend to have the hardest time deciding what or where to eat and my husband gets frustrated then so do I. This week I have lined up: Sun: tacos, Mon: Crockpot Chicken and Broccolli over rice, Tues: Pizza Poppers, Wed: Chicken Alfredo (Olive Garden Sauce Recipe-my fav!!), Thurs: You can have whatever you like (as in fend for yourself), Fri: Crock Pot Lasagna, Sat: Chicken & Steak Skewers. So it sounds yummy & I hope all the recipes work out. I will let you know how it turns out. As for tonight, tacos are normal for sunday funday and True Blood will be on until Shameless finally decides to return.

More to come...

This is def new to me so I may be a little akward, but I will begin by telling you my story. To start off I am a 22 year old new mom and by new I mean June 21, 2012. Which just so happens to be barely over a month ago. I got married to my husband on April 14th of this year also. Well, to be honest this whole year has alot of new dates and family members added to my life. It has been quite the adventure this year. However, my life is finally beginning to settle down or I may just be getting used to the craziness. I am also still in college trying to finish up. My goal is to become a pharmacist, which I have been dreaming about since I was 16. Most people do not have a clue what they want to do with their life at that time. I have been working at pharmacies since I was 16, too. I now am a stay-at-home mom and college student. Not working has been driving me crazy, but I am working on coming up with some creative way to make money from home. My husband's name is Robert and he has been in the Air Force for 8 years. He just re-uped in June for another 6 years. We have only been together for a little over a year, but he is def the man God made for me. I have seen/heard of a lot of people doing blogs and with everything thats going on figured it would be a great thing for me to try. Hopefully, it turns out to be great...

Here are some pics from our wedding: April 14th, 2012
