Monday Madness....

*Leo is back safe and sound. He brought me home a cute Starbucks mug and a bad of my favorite Starbucks coffee. Have I told y'all how much I adore my husband?

*I have a million and one blogs to catch up on. I was sick this weekend and didn't feel like doing much of anything. I promise to catch up on everyone.....

*I can't believe Isabella is going to be one this Thursday. She was born on a Tuesday last fall....and I still remember it like it was yesterday. Why must time go by so quickly? I am trying to take everything in and remember everything....because she is changing more and more everday.

*Someone asked what the BBQ Bible was. It's a bbq cookbook and my husband already has the other book by the guy. If you want more info e-mail me and I'll get it for you. I'm too lazy to walk across the house right now....please forgive me!

*Here is the link for Amanda's pumpkin bread yumminess. I hope you enjoy it and leave her some comment love while you're over there...

*I got offered a job. The pay is amazing, it's on base where Leo works and every other weekend is a 3 day weekend. The part that is holding me back is (obviously) Isabella. I know she would love making friends and playing on everything, but it literally kills me to think about being away from her 10 hours a day. My heart aches at having to make this decision.

*My Grandpa has completed round one of his chemo. He also got some meds that would bring his appetite back. We are all praying that the chemo is helping.

*I'll be taking Isabella's one year pics this weekend. I hope that I can do a good job! I think we'll be taking her to the park and then I may take some of her on our front porch with the white columns. So excited!!

*Last, but certainly not least....thanks to Krystyn I have a catchy new title for my Monday posts. Thank you, Krystyn!

Glad you are feeling better. You have one sweet husband to bring you back some Starbucks.
Glad to hear your Grandpa finished round one. He is in my prayers.
Good luck with the one year pics. I hope Isabella cooperates well for you. As they get older, they seem to cooperate less and less.

I am glad to hear you are feeling better.

I think you should be excited about the job. I know it is going to be hard leaving your baby girl, but you'll get a lot of adult time...and she'll get some kid time.

Yay for husbands being home!
And for being thoughful.

I just clicked the mark all as read button in my reader and guess what? The world is still spinning and nothing blew up. I feel like a new woman. Instead of my reader saying 546 it now says 0! Woo hoo!

One is so much fun! Enjoy every minute. Happy early Birthday Bella!

BBQ bible...yum!
Must. have. one.

I have not tried Amanda's yummy bread yet...but you just reminded me that I must!

A job? With good pay?
Good luck with your decision.

Still praying for your Grandpa. Hope he is feeling better.

You will do a great job on those photos. And they won't be those cheesy ones with the carpet...ewwww!

Gotta love Krystyn!
