Time to vote!
Remember when I asked for your help with creating a tagline for my new website? Well, Alicia was the only one who stepped up to the plate and suggested one. I have two ideas of my own, and I really want your help deciding which one to go with. Leave a comment with your choice, or if you have any last minute ideas, let me know them too and we will do another voting process tomorrow.

Choice one, from Alicia: Life and times of a clinically insane twenty something.
Choice two: Blogging to avoid housework since 2006.
Choice three: 367 consecutive sleepless nights and counting...

Okay, now get to voting so I can move to my new website already!

Tatertot Tuesday #51: Barefoot on a summer afternoon
These pictures are from the week before her birthday, but I really like them so I wanted to share them with you. If you've been on my myspace, then you've already seen them, but I'm sure you won't mind seeing them again. And if you do mind, too bad.

I'm moving sometime in the near future. Well, I'm not moving, but this blog is pretty soon. And when I say pretty soon, I mean either this week or 6 months from now. You know, because I'm me. But you love me, right? I thought so. Don't worry, y'all will be the first to know as soon as I'm ready to move this thing. I wouldn't want y'all to miss one single moment of our thrilling adventurous lives.

I've been a little fed up with Blogger for quite a while now. I desperately want my own domain name and a fabulous design, but I just cannot bring myself to pay for blogging, considering I don't have all that much time anymore to actually blog. And I'm not quite that important. So, I'm switching to WordPress, which I am extremely excited about. I wish I would have found them in the first place because they are soooooooo much easier to use. They cater to the stupid and I am the stupid when it comes to HTML and other computer stuff. I heart them very much.

I've pretty much got it all taken care of. Actually, I could switch over there rightthisminute if I want to, but I'm not quite ready for all of you to see it yet. I want it perfect, and it's not quite there yet. I want my own custom header, and this is where you come in. Do any of you know how I can get one of those? Without paying craploads of money? Or possibly for free? Point me in ther right direction.

Also, I want you're help for a new tagline. The blog name will still be Pieces of Me, but that tagline up there about the crazy cat and lazy dog blah blah blah ain't making the move with me. Mostly because I no longer have the crazy cat, and also because I'm tired of it. So, come up with some witty taglines for me. Something cute, funny, silly, whatever. I've got 2 in my head, but I'll wait to tell them to you until I've heard all of yours. And then I'll list them all and we can vote on them. So, get to work!

Who the heck do I think I am?
I just Googled "Homemade Halloween Yard Decor".

Somebody please stop me.

This is what having a child does to you. Actually, I can't blame it all on the baby. I LOVE Halloween. L-O-V-E. And I think that Aeralyn has inherited that love from me. On Monday, we went shopping. And oh my goodness, there are two brand spanking new Halloween shops in my area. Yes, TWO stores with nothing but Halloween items in them.


In both of the stores, they had scary displays of ghosts, goblins, hideous witches, skeletons with flashing red eyes, HUGE spiders, the works. Aeralyn was fascinated with them all. And y'all, I might have had to hold in a tear because my little girl likes Halloween too!! Just like her mama!

Like I said before, somebody stop me. Or better yet, any ideas on homemade yard decor for Halloween? Or am I the only freak that would actually decorate their yard for the occasion?

Tatertot Tuesday #50: First Birthday


Month Twelve
Dear Aeralyn,

Saturday was your first birthday, and what a day it was. I got through the entire day without crying, so I hope you will be proud of me for that in the future. It wasn't easy. We had such a great time at your party. You were the perfect birthday princess.

I can still remember exactly how I felt the moment you were born. It is a feeling I will never forget. My heart was yours from the first moment I laid eyes on you. It seems like it was just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital. Your daddy and I had no idea what to do with you, but it looks like we managed because you've turned out pretty good so far.

You finally got your first two teeth this month. We were beginning to wonder if you would ever get any. You weren't too happy about them, but I hate to tell you that there are quite a few more where those came from.

It is amazing how much you have changed over this past year. You have such a fun personality, and I can't wait to see it blossom even more over the years. You are curious, adventurous, loving, and spunky, and so much more. You are one of the busiest babies I have ever seen. You are constantly moving and playing, and you absolutely hate to be strapped down into any contraption. Especially your highchair. This has made for some fun times at dinner, but I'm sure you will get the hang of the idea before long. Atleast I hope so.

This past year with you has been by far the best year of my life. I will never be able to express how special you are to me, and you will never understand until you have children of your own someday. I love you more than anything in this world. Happy Birthday punkin'!
