Alright, I admit it...I LOVE Diet Sodas! It's like a special treat without the extra calories. Now, I know what some of you are thinking...soda, even diet soda, just isn't good for you. True. I just haven't found it in me to give it up. I try to be healthy and I do drink a lot of water (that makes it okay, right?!) but it kinda makes my day when I get to have some pop!!!
I have all of Josh Groban's albums. I LOVE his music...Shane might even say that I have a crush on him. Not true. I've seen him on some talk shows and I really don't think he's my type! However, his voice is beautiful and his music puts me in a good mood. I can't say I have a favorite album...all of them are great. I even have his new Christmas one...so good!
This book was given to me by my mom while I was pregnant. It was recommended to her by someone with twins. This book is saving my sanity! It talks about getting your baby to get good, healthy sleep. I am currently following what it teaches and it works! My boys are still really young but are learning to sleep so well...on their own! The best part...I'm getting my sleep which is the best thing I can do for my boys. When I'm rested, I'm a better, happier mother. I highly recommend the book!
If you know me or my mom very well, you know that I love a pretty smelling house! Probably because my mom's house ALWAYS smells so yummy. These are the BEST candles...Salt City. So many other candles smell for like a day and then the aroma vanishes. Not these. They are pretty darn strong. Some of my favorite scents...Cinnamon Vanilla, Sugar Cookie, German Struessel Cake, and Baked Apple. Right now I have Spiced Pumpkin...it was on sale after the holidays. Oh, so yummy!
I was hesitant at first about the ipod but I've seen the light! While I was in the hospital and had lots of time on my hands, I organized all of our music onto our ipod. It is so awesome!!! I had lots of different playlists to fit my various moods. It has all of our Sunday music as well as our Christmas music. The best part...you don't have to pack your CDs all around. It was one of the best purchases we've made. (Sorry, I think this one is excluded as a prize...I'm not that rich!)
Have you seen this movie??? Oh, so fun and entertaining. I love the music, the dancing, the actors, everything! It is also really clean which is always a plus. I really want to see the broadway production one of these days!
Alright, leave those comments and let me know what you think. Hey, you might be the lucky winner! I'll do the drawing in about a week so stay tuned...

Shane is determined to make these boys to be buddies...do you think it's working? Don't they look like they like each other?!
The basketball game was just too much for Carson!
Carson really wanted to take a snooze right before bed time, so I was trying to keep him awake a little longer. He had his pacifier in his mouth which I removed to wake him up. He showed me...he first found his left thumb. I pulled that out and minutes later he found his right thumb. He was determined to go to sleep no matter what I tried to do!
The boys were hanging out bright-eyed in their diapers waiting for their baths.
Their baths were just too much for them. They got clean, warm, and cozy...and took a good long nap! They were pretty cute.

I was just thinking back on the last few months and still cannot believe where we've been and where we are now. On Tuesday the boys turned 10 weeks old. It shocked me to think that I was in the hospital for 10 weeks. The weeks in the hospital seemed to pass by ever so slowly and now it's hard to believe that we've had our boys here for the same amount of time. The latter 10 weeks have just flown by. Crazy! It's nice to be on the other side. All the long days...some with laughter some with tears...were all worth it! Cade & Carson are the sweetest little boys and I'm one lucky lady. I'm so grateful that they hung in there and came when they were healthy and could be home with me. Truly a humbling experience.

Cade is pretty photogenic. He just sits there all posed cute forever!
Carson had just woken up and had a hard time keeping those eyes open!
