Just try and follow along.

First of all........

Oh yes. Yes, I did. But we will get to that later.

Last night, Miss Tess told me she DID NOT want to put a diaper on for bed. She wanted to wear,

Well, OK??!!?? So, she slept in her panties. And woke up DRY!!!!!

Does this mean we are getting very close to no more,

Makes me kind of sad, yet very excited that we will be saving $789,875.00 a year in diapers.
Isn't that exciting? I had to share.

Moving on. Friday night was a BLAST!!! Hubby and I had such a fun time together, and it was great seeing friends we don't see as often as we would like too. I had lots of,
and thought I was SUPER cool when a few young UT girls gushed over how much I looked like,

that is Ashley Greene. She plays Alice Cullen in the Twilight series for those not in the know.

WELL, this made me feel like a total bad ass all night long. I told anyone that would listen that I was told I looked like Alice Cullen.

This made me happy because I get told all the time that I look like,

this does NOT make me happy, I just don't think she is cute. I was even stopped at a bar in Fort Worth by a girl armed with her camera phone to take a picture of me because she thought I actually was her. UGH.

So when I got home on Saturday I googled Alice Cullen and pulled up more pics of Ashley Greene.

Those girls must of been WASTED. I look nothing like her. Oh well, I had an entire night that I thought I looked like a 23 year old Maxim covergirl, movie star.

It's the little things.

But since they also told me my,

were super cool, that made me feel like a bad ass as well so it wasn't such a let down that I don't look like Ashley Greene.

Yesterday, I had a date with Mrs. Mack. It started with lunch and,

We each had three. Oops. Then we headed to the theatre to see,

It was awesome! AWESOME!! Loved every second of it and will be living in a weird fantasy world for a few weeks. This guy,

has been working out. Big time. Jacob is a doll face, yet I am still in love with,

Intense fellow isn't he? I can't wait for more movie dates with Mrs. Mack and I really can't wait for,

To make my Sunday even better. When I got home from the movies, this handsome devil,

had the house picked up, dishwasher running, kids had eaten an early dinner and both were soaking in a bath of bubbles. How awesome is he?! I don't think the menfolk understand that the little things mean more to us mommies than a diamond necklace.

Who am I kidding, I would prefer a diamond necklace, but you know what I am saying. I was a very happy wife and mother when I got home.

Thanksgiving week is upon us and I have TONS AND TONS AND TONS to be thankful for. Right now, I have TONS AND TONS AND TONS of laundry to do.

But that is just fine, this week is the beginning of my favorite time of the year!

Ta-ta for now!

Happy Turkey Day!

Carrie Darney said...

Love those boots! And yes, the little things that men do around the house make a mama SO happy!!

I use to get told that I look like punky brewster. now Maggie G. doesn't look so bad huh?! I mean, come on! Punky freakin brewster?

I'm not over that first picture.

I even spit out a little of my Captain Crunch.


The Rand's said...

Your boots are bad ass! Glad you had fun.
What in the world is that poking out of your hubby's bag?
I love this week, too! My girls are off, hubby is taking a few days off and having family over for turkey day!

Deelsu said...

Crockpot was awesome but it wouldn't be a turkey you would set up for looks. Fell off the bone and we're going to do casseroles, etc. with it.
Brad had never cooked a turkey and the crockpot(a bigger one than what we had) was a wedding gift we already got. He was so excited to use it. I'll find out the recipe..

The Jones Family said...

You are a bad ass, Coco!

starnes family said...

Love the boots. Absolutely darling. I haven't bought a new pair in years. Need to!

Please don't bring that shirt to KC. K?

The Soladay Family said...

Congrats on a dry night with Tess! That is such a huge accomplishment!

You think being told your boots are great and looking like Alice is bad ass....JUST WAIT TIL YOU GET YOUR BOOBIES!!! You'll be out of control! Ha ha! ;)

Anne~fiona and twig said...

What a cute post! Regardless of who you look like, you're just adorable!
All the best,

Sara and Trey said...

The t-shirt?? Seriously?????? I'm speechless.

The Luis Family said...

I am so jealous that you go to see THE movie! Love the shirt!

Way to go Tessie Mayes for staying dry! My 3 1/2 year old won't even attempt panties at night. Cries every time I even suggest the idea! Can you come work with my girl - seems like you've got the magic for this potty training thing!

The Lenzers said...

I would so prefer the diamonds and the cocktails. Love the boots too, I promised myself this is my year for new boots, it has been WAY to long!!! But maybe next year...I will still be too fat to wear my f-ing jeans! And so lucky with the diapers, or lack there of. It took Connor forever to get thru the night dry and he still has accidents.

Vintage Junky said...

So, you are adorable... I think Ashley is and I also think Maggie is too. But, you look more like Ashley than Maggie. And, I adore your tshirt... I think I need one too ;o Glad you saw the movie... I can't wait for the next... and what about the preview of Remember Me on he big Screen... oh yummmm!

Lorelai says that she is going to marry Jacob Black. She doesn't care if he turns into a wolf every so often.

It was fun friend!

I wish I could get a girl to wear some panties at night!
