The New And Improved PMN!

So I hope you noticed that I have been working on my blog. Trying to make it better. To be honest, I am computer illiterate most of the time... I can facebook till my fingers fall off, but html and photoshop are like a foreign language to me. However, I did get the top banner worked out but it still looks a little computer generated. I am not really sure how yall get those really fancy blog pages up and running, but in my mind, mine looks okay and presentable! If not, PLEASE be that friend who tells me so. I need to know if it is junk and am fooling myself.

Anywho, this weekend has been pretty great so far! I am about half way through the keyhole dress. When I was working on it I was also talking on the phone and cut my piping before I was supposed to so, I have to hit up Hancocks again for more! Chris had off Sunday (technically today for me because I haven't gone to bed even though it is Monday at 3:00am) which he usually doesn't, and we spent the day lounging. We laid around until 11, then we went to Chili's for lunch. Aubrey brought her kitten purse and kept pretending it was eating her mac and cheese. The couple behind us wasn't thrilled about her loud "meows." Then it was home for naptime! Aubs napped for 3 hours!!! She is typically a one hour napper, but I guess she is growing and needed more beauty rest. I fell asleep too. Ahhh, sweet nap time.

After we woke up at 4 (which explains why I am up at 3 am), we headed over to the in-laws for dinner. Mops and Pops (Chris dad and stepmom) made grilled chicken, grilled mashed sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli, and peach pie. Following dessert, we headed outside and Aubrey and Pops got in the pool while the rest of us watched.

When we finally got home Aubrey took a bath and then let us know she was ready for bed. I love how she gets her book, hands it to me, then sits down between my legs so I can read her favorite story "Guess How Much I Love You." Chris and I stayed up and watched a couple episodes of True Blood. Love that show! Chris went to bed a couple hours ago, but since I got a nap in I am wide awake.

So, let me know if this is lame, but a lot of people have been posting What they Wore. I like seeing what other stay at home moms wear because I have been trying to dress up more to make myself feel better about my attire. Here is what I wore today:

I found the dress at Macy's for $20. and I've had the boots forever. I know the clutch doesn't match but it was my wallet. Usually I wear pants because I have always been very self conscious about my legs, but I am trying to get over myself and feel more comfortable in my own skin. I was actually very confident in this dress! I think I could maybe make it... hmmmm... maybe.... I guess I outta get some zzz's

Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. I'm gonna be the "blog design friend". Yes, it is looking good. Do I think it is as awesome as the one in your head? No.
    Don't limit yourself by what you already know how to do. Dream big and learn how to accomplish it!
    Send me an e-mail and I'll definitely help out. It does take awhile though, so you're getting there!

  2. It looks great! I love the photo, you did a great job!!!
