Fall Break!

I can not believe I have not blogged since July 4th!  I am ashamed, but life has been so busy - between a new school year and having a baby girl, blogging has taken the back burner.  Now that I am on Fall break, maybe I can catch everyone up on what has been going on!

I have begun a new school year and a new adventure in the 5th grade.  I am a math and science teacher and have really enjoyed the journey so far!  I work with wonderful people and that school is my 2nd home.

Sloane is now 10 months, time has flown by!

She weighs 20.5 lbs and is a tall girl!  I guess I need to begin planning her 1st birthday - it will be here before you know it!  I am struggling with ideas, themes, etc.  If anyone has any suggestions, please comment!  I am going to keep it small - family and close friends and don't want to get out of control or spend too much money.  Some of Sloane's favorite things:

*Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
*Little Einsteins
*Being outside
*Going for walks in the neighborhood
*Waffles, turkey dogs, sweet potatoes, carrots, puffs, watermelon
*Looking at pictures
*Being read to, loves books!
*Going to Community Bible Study school with her great-grandmother
*Seeing people at the mall, she is a people watcher like her Mama and Mimi

Here is a photo of her and I a few weeks ago at my sister's house - they have a lot of acreage and we enjoyed playing.

Sloane enjoyed her first tailgating experience at Mississippi State a few weeks ago.  Mississippi State played South Alabama and won!  We tailgated with my wonderful friend, Robyn, and her family and some other friends.  Korbyn, Landon, and Sloane enjoyed seeing one another and also enjoyed some tailgating food.  Here is a photo of Kristy, Robyn, and myself with our little bulldogs.

BIG NEWS - Greg turned the big 3-0 this past Saturday.  Funny enough, my dear friend Kristy's husband shares the same birthday.  We decided to take the boys on a night trip to Tunica and enjoy a nice dinner and play at the casino.  I think Kristy and I were most excited about an uninterrupted night's sleep!  Of course, by the next morning we were ready to get back to our babies, but really enjoyed our time together and getting away from reality for a night!

My sister Emily is on a new adventure of blogging.  She has created a design blog that will be a design/retail blog in the near future.  She is full of great ideas and professional advice.  Please check her blog out and follow her!
