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.

home today with a semi-sick child

Well, I'm home today!  Presley was sent home from day care yesterday with a fever, so she can't come in today.  I'm about 99% sure she is teething, and that is the culprit, but we're going to go into the walk-in clinic this morning just to make sure.  To be honest, having a little time off is nice.  I had a super busy weekend traveling to Murphreesboro for my friend Kim's wedding.  It was really nice and everything went well, but it wore me out.  I needed to be there @ 1130 on Friday morning...so, I had to leave the house at about 6:45 that morning in order to swing Presley by Holly Springs to drop her off with the Putnams (they met me half way, thank goodness).  I got home about 1230 on Sunday, but Todd didn't get home until 215 ish, since he had to pick her back up on the way home.  Anyway, we were beat!  But, I am glad Presley is finally showing some signs of teeth.  She got her first 6 right around when she was supposed to, but then they just stopped.  I think she is supposed to have 4 on the bottom and her 1st set of molars right now?!?  She never really teethed before, they just showed up.  So, maybe they are all coming in at one time and it's causing her some pain...I'm new to this, so I don't really know.  Well here are some pics.
