It's A Boy!!!!!!!

Its a boy....... for my friends Amanda and Lou! Baby Leo was born 09/21/10 and is so cute! I took a trip to the hospital to see the little bundle and got these cute pictures to share.

New Mommy and Baby Leo! She looks so young in this picture- hard to believe that my high school best friend is already a mommy! I have to say she looks pretty good for having a c-section following 20 hours of labor!!! Another reason why I don't want any kids.....right now!

Close up of Baby Leo! He is sooooo cute, look at his little lips :) It almost looks like he had a smile on his face, I know he is a little too young to be smiling but its still cute!

I hope you guys are all enjoying my new blog design! I had to give the good ol' blog a little face lift for fall, my favorite season!!
Rusty and I had a great weekend- spent some time together, watched some TV, made some good food for dinner, and just enjoyed some relaxation. I also spent some time with Julie, doing some much needed girl time and shopping- always a good time :)
But all good things must come to an end- now its time to get ready for the work week, but not before watching Amazing Race!!!

Get Out of Town!!!!!!!!

If you live in Southern Pennsylvania, you know what I am talking about!! They have invaded our state, county, town, and neighborhood! They make our lives miserable, they look gross, and they even smell bad! They are about the size of a nickel, but don't let their size fool you- they will get you!
They are the........ STINK BUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We usually do not have this problem, but for some reason they are CRAZY this year in our area. There have been featured in newspapers, magazines, articles, and news reports all about these crazy bugs. They have even been featured in the top story on yahoo- titled "Stink Bugs Invade Pennsylvania". Per experts, they are moving south and have now been spotted in Maryland- so watch out you Southern folks! You have been warned!

They love light and hang out on your house all day in the sun and then once it gets cooler at night, they try to make their way inside for warmth and light. They know exactly when you are getting ready to open your door and just like that are inside. I think I have officially become a crazy woman with them- I scream, yell, and run from them. There is just something about them that freaks me out!!!

So, next time you walk outside and see what looks like an "innocent little bug" think twice!!!! Does anyone else have these little annoying bugs flying around their area? I would love to know that I am not the only crazy person that HATES them.....

Fall TV is BACK!!!!!

My life has gotten just a little bit better these past few days...... all because fall TV is BACK!!
My husband and I are officially addicted to TV- something he got me into when we got married. I don't really mind it, because it gives us a reason to cuddle on the couch together with the pups!
Here are the fall TV shows that we are or plan to follow (when they start):
- Amazing Race
- Biggest Loser
- Dancing with the Stars
- Survivor
- How I Met Your Mother
- Big Bang Theory
- Kate Plus 8 (this one I only watch and yes I am embarrassed to admit it!)

We are thinking about checking out Modern Family and The Event- but who knows!

Thank the lord for DVR!! We would not know what to do without it! Not only does it allow you to always catch your favorite TV shows but you don't have to watch commercials!! I have a hard time watching "live" TV thanks to DVR!

What shows will you be checking out this fall??

Just Call Him Chef Rusty!

I know it has been awhile since I have blogged.... it has been a weird past couple of days! I have been in a funk- trying to work my way out!! I am not sure why I have been this way- but this beautiful fall weather day has made it a little better!
Not to mention, that nothing too exciting has been happening in my life! Tonight Rusty and I both had an eye doctor appointment and got to pick out some new glasses, which is always exciting. Both of our prescriptions were increased- gotta love having bad eyes and hearing the news that they have only gotten worse- ha!

On a positive note- Rusty made an amazing dinner on Sunday! He is always able to come up with some great ideas for dinner and everything is always so good. This Sunday, he made Chicken Kabobs. Here are some pictures while he was busy preparing and grilling away!!

They turned out so good and we even had enough to have left overs on Monday! Nothing like enjoying a good meal Sunday evening and then knowing that you don't have to cook on Monday :)

Once we finished dinner on Sunday, we call the pups back inside from the deck. I walked outside on the deck to find this sweet little face- she absolutely loves the deck and was trying to tell me that she was not ready to come back inside!!

Sorry for the glow on her eyes- but you can still see just how cute she is- ha!

On a side note- I think Rusty is in just as much funk as me! He is a devoted Dallas Cowboy fan and is feeling the pain of their 0-2 start. I hope (for his sake) they are able to pull off a win this Sunday. Game time in the Christman house is always entertaining- everyone has their jerseys on, including the pups! Here are the pups getting ready for another day of Cowboy football.

Welcome to My New Blog World!

Thank you Paige for hooking me up with some good advice about making collages! I worked on this for a few days... I believe that I am slow learner, but hey at least I did it :)
I still have to figure out how to make my blog title look a little better... but there is always tomorrow and the weekend!
I hope you enjoy my new blog look! Let me know what you think- I hope you are able to get a little look into my life through my pictures!!
This is not the change I was talking about in my previous post (just in case if thats what you were thinking). You will still have to wait a little longer to find out what "that" change is- sorry Jodi ;)

CHNAGE- to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of something different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone (per

Some people are very scared of change, some welcome it with open arms. I think I am someone who is sort of in between- some change is good while other change is REALLY scary.
It is time to face some of those fears and make some much needed changes to my life- stay tuned for some more information!!

North Carolina Weekend Recap!

I headed out of town to North Carolina this weekend in this wonderful little car for a six hour drive (by myself since Rusty couldn't get off of work)

I stayed with Alex and Freddy- one of my favorite couples to hang with!!

and spent some quality time with some great college friends

while attending Erin and Tom's wedding! She was absolutely beautiful- her dress was amazing and the reception was a good time.

It was a wonderful mini Tri-Sigma reunion- I miss my girls from college :(

No trip to North Carolina would be complete with some Bojangles and a stop at Potomac Mills to pick up the hubby some of his favorite shoes!!!

It was a great weekend, always fun to catch up with old friends and get away for a few days! Until next time, I will hold the memories we made and the taste of Bojangles Chicken biscuit and sweat tea close to my heart :)

Look at Those Faces!

Its almost been a week since I posted- sorry! I have been busy the last few days. I had a wonderful three day weekend and need to do a post about my trip to NC for Erin's wedding- I promise that will be coming shortly.
But here is a little picture for Wordless Wednesday!

Look at our faces- thank you Aunt Julie for taking such a cute picture of us :)

Today's date and one of my all time favorite shows, the old 90210 that is!!! While writing out today's date on one of my documents for work, I realized that today's date was the same as those magical numbers and zip code :)

I love the show when it was originally running "live" and still love to watch the re-runs. I DVR them everyday- they are great to watch while looking around on the computer or doing some work from home!!

Here is a video for your enjoyment :)

Happy 90210 Day!!!

Home Alone!

AHHHHHHH! (as he slaps his hands in his cheeks!)- just a little reference to Home Alone- great movie!!!!! :)

Rusty is working late this evening (wont be home until after midnight) so I am home alone and have the evening to myself. I am actually looking forward to it..... not that I wont miss Rusty but it is nice to have some time to yourself!

I don't have any big plans, just a lot of relaxing and doing some of things that I have been meaning to get done. I might organize my closet a bit and work on packing for this weekend (I am heading out of town to NC for a friend's wedding- can't wait!!!) Or..... I might just do NOTHING much at all.

I am currently sitting on the couch enjoying my new favorite sweet treat (Coconut M&M's) and watching some re-runs of 90210 with the pups beside me! Life doesn't get much better, huh?

Back to this weekend- As I said earlier, I will be heading to NC for a friend's wedding. I will get to see a lot of my friends from college and I just can't wait!!!!!!! Rusty was not able to get off of work, so I will be making the trip by myself. I wish he could be coming with me, but it will be nice to have some "alone" time during the drive.

Next to seeing my friends from college, the other best thing about the trip will be getting to eat some Bojangles!!! I love me some Bojangles.... the best hidden secret of the south and definitely something I miss about NC!

I am hoping that the hurricanes will hold out and not cause too much trouble for my travel plans and Erin's wedding! Until next time.....have a great rest of the week and wonderful holiday weekend!
