Not Me! Monday




Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to http://www.mycharmingkids.net">her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


This week it's all about little Stellan...


I have not been telling everyone about sweet Stellan and his sick heart... I do not act like I know them personally, nope, not me!


I do not think that Stellan is one of the most precious baby boys I have ever seen, and I do not love him, and pray for him like he is my own, nope, not me!



I have not been praying morning, noon, and night for Stellan, his Mama and Daddy, his 3 precious siblings, doctors, nurses, family, friends, and all the other prayer warriors! Nope, Not me!!


I was not kicking myself when I realized I left my camera with a friend by accident, and I could not take a picture of Stellan's name to add to the gallery! Nope, Not me!

I love to Sew!

4th sling that I made. It takes 2 1/2 yds of fabric and 2 rings

How cute is this fabric!? I was very tempted to keep it for Bowen
It measures 1 1/3 yard. Great size. It is flannel on the orange side


burpcloth set




Monkeys are great for boys or girls.


I wanted to share some of the things I have been working on lately. I have sold several baby slings recently! I also been making blankets, pillows, burpcloths, and snack bags. Ofcourse, I make things for kids too! All my kids, nephews, nieces, my dad, friend's kids have recieved pillow cases and snackbags! I never thought I would love to sew sooo much. My dear friend Rebecca gave my machine for my birthday. I have also been sewing with Heather my other friend who is my sewing mentor! She has taught me so much, and I can't thank her enough for taking me under her "Martha Stewart" wings. Let me know if you are interested in placing an order! I have some things already made, and I do custom orders. Come on, you know you want one!

I've Been Tagged

I was tagged by Tanya , my blogging buddy to participate in 7 things you might not know about me. Head over to her blog MayandOdessa.blogspot.com to see her and 2 precious girls!



I am known to cram things in drawers...out of sight, out of mind right!

I have known Ben since High School...We even almost kissed once when I was in 10th grade. How funny huh!?


I wanted to be a L&D nurse since I was 8 yrs. old. But, school sucks! So, instead I am going to become a Doula. I love the miracle of life especially the birthing!


All my boys have short first names and long middle names, except Andrew his is backwards since I didn't name him! Andrew Ray, Luke Benjamin, Jack Robinson, and Bowen William.


My favorite musician of all time is Prince. He is soooo awesome.


When I was invited to Ben's house for a barbecue by Samarah, I never left his house! It was instant love. Sounds tacky but, he was such a gentlemen, our first kiss was on his couch 5 days later!!


After I had Luke I never saw myself having girls....I must be psychic!

Pray for baby Stellan

As many of ya'll know I follow the blog mycharmingkids.net. Well, baby Stellan the one that was healed by God before birth with the same thing, and he is really sick and in the hospital with a super high heartrate. It has been in the 200-260..not good. Please have Stellan and his Mama, Daddy, and 3 siblings in your prayers. There is great power in prayer! God Bless. Love, Erin

Not Me! Monday





Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
So, let's get to it ya'll...
I did not put cups back in the cabinet after my boys just drank water after dinner last night...who would do such a strange and lazy thing.. Nope, not me!
Ben and I were not admiring our two middle boys being soooo sweet with each without them knowing, Nope, not us!
I did not completely forget about Luke and Jack's t-ball pictures this weekend...me the team mom would never do such an absent minded thing and have a sleep over with a friend and her kids while our husbands went turkey hunting, and then went to Joann Fabrics, and Aldi Foods and did not think twice about it until I got the phone call from Ben asking how pictures went....Nope, not me!
I have not been trying to sell my slings and other baby things to my family and friends instead of setting up an etsy account like I should be, I am not so lazy that I can't take some pics of my stuff and set up an account..Nope, not me!
I am not totally putting off losing a few pounds for my cruise coming up in June, and I am not soooo ecstatic about my first cruise, and gaining a few pounds back from all the delicious food..Nope, not me!

Weekend Fun





This weekend was an eventful one to say the least. On Friday afternoon we went to
Thomas & Creighton's house to hang out and for Ben to help Thomas mud a room. We ate pizza and watched the little kids play while the big boys spent the night jumping on the trampoline and playing the WII all night! Saturday the boys were supposted to have ball practice but it was canceled because of the rain. So, instead we took our new snake to find out the sex of it. We were calling him Max. Now he is a she. Maxine. Nice, huh?! Sat. night Ben and I went to hear Matt's band~ Riverstreet play at a Mexican resturant in Dacula. It was awesome. We had a blast hanging out with Ashley and some other friends! Jon and Tori kept the big boys. Beth had Bowen. I let my baby sleepover with Beth. He had a blast playing with Haley, Kelly's daughter. Then today we went to church, ChuckECheese for a party, and Wal-Mart. Busy. Next week t-ball games start. Exciting that spring has almost arrived. I'm glad the weather is getting better. We are soooo ready. Have a great week~ peace out, bruh.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Ready to be brutally honest and live to tell about it...Here we go!

~I do not love having boys and being able to go to the reptile store to find out the sex of our new pet snake Max(or as we found out is Maxine) and buying baby rats to feed to her, Nope, Not Me!
~I did not crack up when I heard Ben putting Bowen on the toilet, and him saying "Quit touching your pee-pee so you can go potty." Cause that is some serious stuff, and I would never laugh at such a thing. Nope, Not me!
~I did not almost cry on Friday night when I had Creighton trim Bowen's hair. He was not sporting a home grown baby mullet that needed to be dealt with. I did not have to drink some rum and coke to actually let her put scissors near my baby's head. I also am not saving the precious locks of baby hair that was robbed from his baby head. Nope, not me!
~I do not love my sweet husband more each day even though we drive each other crazy sometimes. Or it's probably just..Nope, not me!
Wow, it is amazing how much better I feel now.

Slings, Slings, Get Your RingSlings!

As many of ya'll know I took up sewing last year. Well, my wonderful friend Heather has taken me under her sewing wing. She has taught me some really cool stuff. So, I've decided to start selling stuff that I've created!! I can make baby slings, blankets, snack bags, burp cloths, pillowcases, and napkins. I have really enjoyed myself sewing. It is relaxing and addictive!! So tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and even strangers that Erin's Slings and Other baby things are for sale! I will have some pics up later this week! Ready, Set, Order.... love and blessings from me!

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.



So, I have to admit....I love Not Me! Monday! I actually look forward to it thanks to MckMama. Let's get to it ya'll...



While in the Target parking lot the other day, my buggy did not roll away 6 parking spaces and a nice lady did not have to honk at me to get my attention! I did not laugh at myself with another lady in the parking lot, Nope, not me!

I was not so lazy that I swiffered the kitchen table instead of getting a rag and cleaning my table the normal way. Who would do such a gross thing?! Nope, not me!


I have not been wearing tape on my glasses this week due to Bowen losing my back-up pair and breaking the first pair! I do not look like a total DORK! Nope, not me!


I have not been a bad housewife lately. My laundry is not piled up everywhere, my floors are spotless, and my kitchen table is not covered with papers, crumbs, and more crumbs! Nope, not my house!

Ahhh, nothin like letting your dirty laundry out for everyone to see!

No Way! It's Snowing

backyard
The boys hanging by the fire

neighbor's yard



I can't believe my eyes...it's snowing in Georgia! I did not believe that it was going to snow. They predict the weather wrong half of the time so, I was not even worried about it. We were leaving church today and it was sleeting! It has been snowing ever since...for us it is major stuff!!
Ben had left after our class this morning to go to Albany to look at a job. Well, guess who's stuck in Colombus because of the snow, and better yet who's home with all 4 boys in the house alone...ME! Atleast we have food, Pam came over after church so I could go to the store.
I just pray that the storm dosen't last long, and Ben makes it to Augusta safely. We are staying toasty by the fire watching movies!
