Welcome to Erin Putnam's blog!

My husband, Todd, and I have been married for 5 years. We have a 2 perfect children named Presley and Nate...and Lucy the chihuahua is still around, as well. We live in Memphis on Mud Island and really enjoy it! We have a great group of friends and you'll almost always find us together cooking out in someone's yard or at Movie and a Pizza...leaving the island is a rarity! I hope you enjoy my blog, as I try to keep everyone updated on our lives.

About Me

I like the pool, the beach, and any water - warm weather combo. I like shopping for Presley and Nate...way more fun than shopping for myself. I like cooking when I don't have to, running when the weather is perfect, the day the maid comes and my house is clean (even if for a little while), grocery shopping, minivans, pregnant women (just not me), a bubble bath and a sudoku puzzle, baby pictures of my husband, my hair the day after it was washed, reality TV, Oprah, when Todd takes the trash out without me asking, half-baked ice cream (I could seriously eat the stuff every day!), watching my babies sleep, talking about memories of my mom and grandmom, someone else choosing the restaurant, when the car beside me has spinners, strawberries and melted milk chocolate, and funny songs on your ring tone. I don't like feeling I need to exercise, folding itsy bitsy clothes, computer problems, hot leather seats, bugs, sun glasses that are too tight on your head, alarms, annoying girl drama, paying for daycare when it's closed, long fingernails, hugging people I barely know, people who use the word 'love' too liberally, and tacky children's clothes. All and all, I think I'm pretty normal.

The weather is wonderful here.  Todd and I are trying to get the yard looking halfway presentable for Presley's birthday party next month...we'll see what we accomplish in the next couple of weeks.  The previous owner over-landscaped, so we last week we had several bushes and trees taken up.  We were going to lay sod today, but went to the store to get it and it looked horrible.  So, we'll wait another week or 2 and see if some new, healthier grass comes in.  We did plant our mini-garden, though.  We have about 5 tomato plants, a few green peppers, a orange pepper, squash, and eggplant...yum!  
Presley is a real walker these days.  She obviously hasn't perfected it, but she is feeling a lot more confident.  Todd and I crack up watching her.  She has also started saying "uh-oh"...so, whenever something is dropped (or thrown, for that matter), you here her "uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh."  Here are some pics out enjoying the weather yesterday and one from this morning.
