Happy 3rd Birthday Mr. Preston!

I really can not believe that my little guy is three today!  Where did the time go?? 

This is Mr. Preston right after I had him!  He looked like Josh right from the start.  Right after he was born my mom said if I did not know better I would have thought you just gave birth to Josh!  Gross thought but you get the picture.

                                               Preston has beautiful eyes...they are intoxicating!

Here is Mr. Preston on this 3rd birthday morning!

I love you with all my heart little one.

American Eagle

Today is AE Fan Appreciation Day! Take 20% off your entire order only at AE.com. Use discount code 92567411.  Also you can sign up for AEREWARDS and get extra coupons throughout the year.  They recently changed the point system and I have to say I am a little disappointed that they made it harder to get the higher percentage coupons.  Overall, I love the AE Brand and have been shopping with them since I was a teenager.

This is strictly my opinion and I was not compensated in anyway.  I just love AE and thought you might too!

A few hours during the day, and about one hour after I get off work...helps me become sleepy!

2. Will you pay for your children's college or raise them to pay for their own way?
Im going to try to do both.  I had some help but did a lot on my own...and its really hard to work part time, go to college full time and still have some kind of social life. 

3. Have you ever been in a car accident?
Yes three.  The first one I hit someones back end while turning in the rain.  Second one I was t-boned.  Third I was hit in the back end while it was raining. 
4. What is your favorite book?
I dont have one...sad I know but I am not a big reader of adult books...I read a lot of childrens books to my kids...I hope they like to read more than I do.

Trucking along

I want to applogize for not blogging much lately...back in late January I got a part-time job.  It has turned into more like a full timeish job now!  I am working nights trying to save up money to fix my husbands car and we are going on a big family trip starting in June...extra spending money is aways nice. 

Families who have two working parents who are on two different shifts how do you do it for long?  I have only been at this for a month and a half and I can tell it is taking a toll on the family.  I keep reminding myself and them that its only until June...its only until June!  I dont want to sound like a cry baby but it stinks not being able to spend evenings and weekends with my family. 

Here is what I am using as my motovation to keep trucking along!

1. We are going to Disney World for a week!  I can not wait...it is going to be so much fun!!

2. My husband I are renting this beach house for a week...and it gets better...with no kids!!

3. We are going to be spending a few days in our soon to be new place for residence.

4. Going to be visiting family...this is my mom!

This is Josh's dad and Jackson (he was only two). We are going to be splitting the rest of the time with both families.
My hats off to families who have two working parents on different shifts...it stinks!
