Sweet Baby Liana

Dear Diary,
I have been the WORST blogger for the past few months. I got so busy at the end of the school year. Plus, the summer seemed to be over before it even started. Last time we talked I was spending time with my pregnant sister. These days, I am spending time with my brand new, sweet baby niece. (Can you tell how I feel about her!!) Ok, so technically she's not brand new anymore (she was three months last week) but she is still precious. I was finally able to gather some pics so I put together a little collage. I hope you are able to view this, I uploaded it a little different! Hopefully it won't be another 4 months before I blog again!!

Girls Night Out

(Me and Kara definitely did NOT plan to color coordinate, but isn't it neat that it worked out that way)

Last week while at home for spring break, both my sisters, my mom, and myself went to see Sinbad at the Civic Center in PC. We had so much fun together. At points, mom laughed so hard, she cried...literally. After we left the civic center, we went to eat a little restaurant on the water called Gracie Rae's. I hardly ever get to spend time with my older sister, so it was nice to do that before things get crazy with the baby. By the way, Liana Rose is due to arrive in 42 days... I can't wait!!!

Happy Happy Birthday!!!

Okay, so not a technical birthday, but an important one just the same. Tuesday March 10, 2009 Maddox Lee Isbell turned 10 months old. On the tenth of every month, Maddox gets some kind of present from his Killer (that's me). It's nothing fancy or too expensive, just a little something to show how much I love this little man. Don't worry this is not a tradition that will last the rest of his life (sorry Kimmy), just until he's one. Then maybe I'll stop...maybe. A few months ago Kim mentioned that Maddox needed a nice bib that she wouldn't be ashamed to pull out in public. So I found a cute reversible one at My Kids Attic. Then last week when I was at You Name It (a monogramming store that I visit religiously!!) my friend Brooke pointed me in the direction of a table that had some merchandise on sale. She said, "I just know that you can find something on this table for Maddox". That's when I remembered that his 10 month birthday was coming up. With her help, I found this. Isn't' he precious!!

he is so excited about this bib...
so excited!!

A little under the weather :(

Shade her skin a few shades darker, and give her color treatment in a box, and that would be a perfect picture of how I looked this weekend. Sick, sick and more sick. I lived on the couch from Friday night until Monday morning. I tried every over the counter drug you can imagine. From Nyquil, to Singulair, to Claritin, to Tylenol Severe Sinus, and the list goes on and on. Nothing worked. The crazy thing is that normally I would have went to the doctor Friday night. I'm not one to "wait out" a cold. If I sneeze too many times, I'm at the doctor. But at the beginning of this month we switched our insurance from BCBS to something else that I'm not real sure of. One of the ladies in the Business Office e-mailed us temporary ids to use until the real ones came in the mail. I, of course, assumed that I wouldn't need it, because there was no way I would be sick this weekend...I WAS WRONG!! On a brighter note, I do feel better today, than I have all weekend. I only wish I knew which of those 7 medicines finally did the trick!!

In case you've ever wondered...

what high school boys write to high school girls in their love notes, it goes something like this:

Hey Beautiful! I hope your having an amazing day, cause I know with
you in my life all my days are amazing. I love you so much Baby like really you
don't even know. Baby you are my everything, you are my world Baby. When I'm
around you everything is perfect everything falls into place. Baby but when I
look in your eyes Baby I get lost in my love for you. Baby every time I look in
your eyes it's like the first time I get butterflies like crazy and it reminds
me why I get up every morning and thank God for putting you in my life. Baby you
are the only girl i ever want in my life Baby. The way...

This is as far as he got before I confiscated the letter. I could hardly contain myself as I began to read it. Lucky for him I decided not to read it aloud to the class. I informed him that if any boy wrote me a lame letter like this I would cut him off with the quickness. He should be glad I saved him from himself!!

Have You Ever Felt Like....

You were losing your mind?

Dear Diary,

I know that you think I have completely abandoned you for about the last 6 weeks. Things have been so crazy. Between Thanksgiving, and Erica's (my sister) wedding, semester exams, and Christmas parties, there has been NO time for anything else. And now that we are a week away from Christmas Eve, I am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. I have not bought a single present...not one. This is so out of character for me. My tree is usually filled with presents by this time. And the one day I actually did set aside to go do some shopping, I ended up with 3 bags full of stuff for me. What is wrong with me?? Mom expects me to come home for Christmas break this weekend, but I cannot show up without any gifts. Needless to say, I am starting to stress. If this were a movie, a good friend of mine would call me out of the blue, and offer their help...Louise, Kimmy, Leigh, ANYBODY!! Just kidding. Maybe if I can get through exams, there will be some time to shop quickly on Friday afternoon.

Love and Hugs,
