guilty pleasure #19

So it's about that time again. When I rush the kids off to bed so that I can watch my shows, uninterrupted. Even though I am hooked to several shows, thanks to my dvr, there is only one I am really looking forward to. Smallville. Yep, you heard, er, read right. Me, a 27 year old mother of two, love, love to watch this show.

One, because I have watched since season one and I am now nine years invested. Two, because hubs #2 (if the need should ever arise :)) is on the show. I just love Tom Welling! I mean seriously have you seen the man.

What I really love about him is the fact that he is a very private person. I mean he literally avoids the lime light when ever possible. In turn, it makes him more mysterious, which just makes him more irresistible.
But there are other more grown up shows I love to watch. There is CSI, all of them, Private Practice and Grey's. I haven't decide if there are any new shows that I want to add to my list. I mean I struggle as is is keeping up with these shows. But there are three shows that are sparking my interest. Trauma, Cougar Town and the Vampire Diaries. But we'll see how the schedule plays out and how much homework Isaiah gets. Well I hope everyone has a great night!
*For the record Trey has his crush too, Mandy Moore, so it even.*

it's official

First of let me start out by saying that for the past five years we have been a family. Nothing anybody says or does can take that away from us. But as of today Isaiah is officially a Posey and Trey is legally his dad!

Now of course this a huge day for Trey. He has always loved Isaiah as if he was his natural born son but now he can give him his name and as he says NO one can take him away from him. I too, am very happy. For the longest time, before Trey that is, I seriously thought I would always be a single mother. Therefore, I never was expecting to meet anyone because I figured I wouldn't find anyone good enough to be my husband much less a father to my son as well. So I am very blessed that the Lord put Trey in my life and let me realize that there was someone out there that could do both. Isaiah was excited that a) he got to leave school early and b) he gets to change his last name to match the rest of ours. He doesn't understand all the legality of it and he doesn't need to. All he needs to know is that his dad loves him and will always be there for him. So I would like to thank all of our family and friends who gave us their support and prayers to let everything happen as smooth as possible.
Hope everyone has a great night!

scrap love

Well seeing as I spent last weekend at a crop I do have several layouts to share. But I won't do them all at once because we need to spread the layout love and because I don't have them all scanned, hee hee.
Of course with school just starting I needed to do a layout commemorate it.

Here is a layout with me and Trey. I was just so happy to scrap a picture of us.

And another to get the football season started.

And I am happy to say that I am still on the island at croppin paradise. The layout challenge was to use colors you would find in a tropical paradise. Can't go wrong with blue and green right! The mini challenge was to create a card with some kind of nature element. I will have to post that card later because I don't have the memory card that it's on. (You know I should really keep better tabs on my storage devices.)

Have a great night!

crazy week

Wow, this past week just seems like a blur. For one Isaiah started school last Thursday. As far as I can tell he is enjoying it as much as a 10 year old boy can.

Also this weekend I was able to enjoy some time away with some friends. It has been the first time that I have gone away to scrap and even though I was totally sleep deprived I would so do it agian. But with great friends like these to hang out with, sleep is just not that important.

I got several layouts done, but I will show those on some other post because I am to lazy go get the flashdrive that they are on.
In other news this will be a big week for our Posey family! So on Thursday just keep us in your thoughts. I will elaborate more on that later but for now I am heading off to bed. Hope everyone has a good night!

i survived

First I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. And why am I asking for votes? Well you see I am doing these challenges over at Croppin Paradise. It is the Queen of Paradise Island Challenge. It will last several weeks and I have fortunately last the first. Here is the layout I created for the first challenge and the tag I made for the mini challenge.

The first challenge was to make a layout about your favorite restaurant and the mini challenge was to make a tag.
We'll see how far I make it. But for those who didn't make on the boat the first time you can still participate in the challenges for a RAK. And who wouldn't like free stuff for a little inspiration.

it's about that time!

That's right, it's back to school time! Just one more week and Isaiah will be starting the fifth grade. That is crazy! I still remember his first day of pre-k. He was content with the whole situation until I left, then I hear him screaming bloody murder as I walk out the door. And now he doesn't even want me to take him on the first day, he would rather ride the bus. I mean seriously how is a mother suppose to cope with these things.
So this weekend is Alabama tax free weekend. Anybody going to go out and hit the sales? I have to work so no shopping for me or at least no all-day-shop-till-you-drop-athon which is good seeing as I don't have money. I am just glad I don't work at Walmart or Target or any store in the mall. Bless them folks is all I have to say. Yes we will be busy but most people don't just automatically think office supply store for back to school shopping so we are spared the massive crowds. Well that is all for now. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week.
