Baby's skin...

There's a big rash that Emry has broke out on his forehead, knees, elbows, shins....first I thought it was just dry skin, but it got worse after I put Aveeno on him. I always thought Aveeno was like one of the best things to put on a baby's skin but I guess not- some of it is dry patches, but we need to go buy some burts bees lotion or some brand that's completely natural. I'm afraid to give him his next bath until we get it, cause he skin always gets worse after a bath, cause that's when we put the most lotion on him. I love him so much, everyday is amazing with him!

Just the right fit

So whenever we get a house we're going to be needing a bed because the bed we sleep on now is owned by the University. I love the bed we sleep on now but i know there are all sorts of different beds out there. There's some really cool adjustable beds that look nice. My parents bed they just bought claims that you can put a glass of wine of one side and drop a bowling ball on the other and it won't move- my mom said that it is so nice because she never feels my dad move and get out of bed at night. the bed we have now is so soft and it has a pillowtop, it feels like you're sleeping on a cloud. I alwys joke around saying that whenever we move, we'll be in the huge house with nothing in it, because the University furnishes everything for us at the moment so we don't own much of our own, we might just have to pull out the air bed for a while until we buy one, haha.


I have to admit the first time I tried oysters I was very curious because I didn't quite know what to expect- my older sister fell in love with oysters when she went off to college and she had always said I needed to try them and when I went out to Philly to visit her a couple years ago she took me to an oyster bar. And after i swallowed my first Gulf oysters, it was great! they do have a different texture but I like it, and eating oysters is fun! Eating oysters now are always considered safe because of three differnt post harvest processes oysters go through. These processes allow the oyster to be consumed raw, but with added safety features that reduce Vibrio vulnificus to non-detectable levels. The three processes include 1. Individually freezing the oysters 2.low heat pasteurization or heat-cool pasteurization 3. High pressurization


It's friday today! I love Fridays and even more, since staying home with Emry I love everyday....everyday seems like a Friday to me since I stay home with him, it's hard to keep track of what day it is....most Fridays are great mainly becuase I look forward to Josh sleeping in with Emry and I :o) Josh has so much homework lately, he has a huge 12 page paper due in a couple days and I wish I could help him in some way, i feel for him because he has to leave the apt. to do hmwk because emry and I are too distracting, he wants to just spend all his time with us and he struggles with picking school over us because he knows family is the most important. But I told him time will go fast and he'll have his Masters done before he knows it and we will all breath better after next year :o) And that even though a job and money are all of this world he does a dang good job at what he does and we're behind him!

I love Ocean Potion products, for the past year I've been using the Ocean Potion Emtreme Tanning Xcelerator, and I love it! It has a great smell, unlike some other on the market that smell bad, and it goes on smooth and doesn't leave you blotchy- my friends that I go swimming with have their own kinds, but always end up using mine, because they love it so much!

So my little sister is coming down here to Texas for Spring Break- I'm excited to have a little bit of change of pace here for a while. She doesn't get to see us that much cause she lives in Iowa, and hasn't spent much time with Emry so it'll be fun having her around him as well :o) We have lots of fun things to do around the area, cause there's so much, and her birthday happens to be St. Patricks day when she's here, so we'll have to do something special for that.....another thing I'm excited about is Emry's 4 month appointment coming up soon- we'll get to see his weight and length and how much he's grown, being a first time parent- all those little things matter so much! Looking forward to many things!

Paintball FUN!

Do you enjoy paintballing as much as my husband? It's fun for everyone, that practically any age can enjoy! If you do, then you really need to check out all of the paintball gear they have to offer at!

I have recently been looking for paintball equipment to purchase for my husband, and this site has it all! They have a huge assortment of spyder guns. They sell every brand from Tippmann, to Spyder, to even Draxxus paintball gear! These are just a few of the brand names you will recognize when you visit their site!

While their top selling paintball guns are the Tippmann 98, Tippmann A-5, Spyder Pilot ACS, and the Smart Parts Ion, you can find tons of other guns that they offer, as well as really amazing package deals! I could purchase one of these guns, but my husband is in need of more than just the gun, so I started looking at their different Paintball Gun Packages, and found a lot of great deals!

I am personally looking at a paintball package that would include the Spyder Pilot ACS Black, it's one of their great spyder guns. I'm also looking at many other useful items like a Mask with visor, paintball harness, 6 Heavy Duty 140 Round Pods, Empire Oil, 9.6v Battery and Charger, as well as a Barrel Plug, Manual, and all with a 1 year warranty! All of this for just $179.95! That is over $100 off of what the listed price is! Not only is it a great price, but Ultimate Paintball offers the best prices with FREE shipping! My husband is going to love this gift!!!!

Life Insurance

So a little bit before Emry was born, we went and revised my benefits, to add Emry onto our plan. Mainly we increased our life insurance
, to make sure both Diana and I or Emry are taken care of. I realized that life insurance is so cheap when you're young. My father in law said that life insurance gets more expensive the older you get. But right now while we're in our Twenties, it's only pennies to up it a bit. I think it's so important to have life insurance, I don't think by doing so is saying that something will happen, but just in case it's good to have for your family....I wonder how many people in the US are without life insurance?

Breathing better!

Last year my wife was sneezing and some sort of allergy was attacking her, but couldn't figure it out. Finally realized there was lots of mildew in our vents and also realized how much pollution was in texas, and we set out searching on the internet looking at all the air purifiers that were available to buy. We found a great one, and bought it, it was a little pricey but so SO well worth it! My wife all of a sudden could breath better, and after you change the filters in those things you realize how much crap is really in the that we have a baby we are glad to have it! I think everyone should have a air purifier, they definately do their job!

Couldn't Sleep.....

The other night I couldn't sleep back has been hurting me. Since I kept tossing and turning, I just got out of bed and watched some tv, for fear if I kept tossing I'd wake Emry or Di up. There's not much on at night other than a ton of infomercials....usually for some kind of exercise equipment . There's some really neat ones that they sell right now, and it'd be nice to have one. My parents not too long back bought one they saw on tv and love it, but they also have the room for it, to put in their basement. I always say I'll work out but don't always find the time to do it.....maybe someday when we get a house we'll have room- but then there will be more kids by then and won't find the time, haha.

Coupon Code

I love it when I can find a code to use for online shopping. Like at the end when you check out there's always a place that says "coupon code" or something along the lines and it's nice when you can find a code to type in so you get either free shipping or a certians percentage's nice! The other day I stumbled upon a Amazon coupon code, Amazon has so much cheap stuff! I can always find something to buy on Amazon, because with such a big family my wife's always buying a gift for someone's birthday....and it's always nice to get a good deal!


I can't wait to have our own house! My wife has been watching these "flip your house" shows on tv, there's quite a lot of them, and in them they flip every room in the house and resell the house for more money and make a ton! My wife's favorite room that they do on tv is the bathroom, she says there's so much you can do with a bathroom. It is pretty neat how great the bathrooms look afterwards. They generally redo the whole shower, using tiling it, and then they tear out the cabinets and put in some new ones, with a new sink and also add some cool bathroom lighting it'd be fun to someday whenever we own a house to remodel some stuff and make it look even better, but everything always takes money these days! Most of my friends I've realized that if you don't do it right away when you first move in, it'll never happen!

Swollen Knee

I am in my mid 20's and already am having knee problems. Ever since I tore my ACL in college, I have had issues with my knee. I don't even have to run or be very active on it, and it swells up and starts to ache at different times of the year. Someone informed me that I should try Resveratrol which is a natural compound that can act as an anti-inflammatory. I am willing to try anything at this point, as I do not want to have to have some sort of major opperation at a young age. Resveratrol is also an antioxidant. I will surely let you all know if it ends up working for me.

Weight Loss Anyone?

My friend the other day was talking about this hoodia product that she uses to help lose weight. it's supposed to act as a appetite suppressant, and help you lose weight. She feels like it works, and I'm curious to see how long her results will last. I've heard about it in the news, people these days are using it more and more to help them lose weight, I think it'd more natural than some extreme ways of losing weight, like stapling your stomach or what not.

Wedding Rings

I am one that enjoys beautiful jewelry. It was so fun when Josh proposed to me and presented me with my gorgeous engagement ring. Our wedding rings are somewhat similar in that they both have channeled diamonds and are set in white gold bands. There are so many styles out there, but this is one of my favorites. Wedding rings are for a lifetime, so you want to be sure you find just the right one for you.

3:10 To Yuma

We haven't seen the movie 3:10 To Yuma yet. I didn't know until recently that there was an earlier version of the movie back in the 50's. The new one has been very popular and I hope to see it sometime. I would also like to see the older one and compare the two.

Branson Private Golf

My father in-law is a huge fan of golfing. I think he would golf everyday if he could. Living in the North Country, there are months that it is made difficult if not impossible to golf. Many head south to enjoy the sport. Branson is not all that far. With Branson private golf, he could enjoy his past time well into the fall season. He will have to check that out.


I see on the weather channel that there has been quite a lot of snow in the northern part of the US. I am glad we don't have to deal with that issue here. I don't miss shoveling snow at all. There are a few times that we need to scrape our car windows but not often.

New Computer

Josh's mom and dad got a new computer recently. Their old one worked pretty good but was slow. The new one has everything they need and it was pretty reasonable. It has a 22" flat panel monitor which is much bigger than the old one. I am sure it will work well for them. The newer computers are much more attractive too. The biggest problem with getting a new one is getting rid of the old one.
