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.

Well, we went through Gustav with no problems.  Actually, we didn't even see much of it.  We arrived in Destin on Sunday afternoon and the waves were big...that was great, because we watched some guys surfing.  The next morning, Gustav was nearing, so it rained on and off.  Luckily, a friend of mine lives in Panama City, about 50 miles east, and she said it wasn't even raining there and they were heading to the pool...so, we headed to Panama City.  We lounged by the pool all day and watched football that evening.  Tuesday through Friday were beautiful...absolutely perfect, not a drop of rain and sunny.  We beached it, shopped a tad, ate a lot of seafood, and slept at least 10h a night...did I mention we decided not to take Presley!  Ha!  Really, it was a true vacation and we got a lot of much needed sleep.  We also had some Memphis friends in Destin, too...so, we had plenty of folks to play with and had so much fun!  Our trip home was not quite as fun, as we had a 2h delay in Magee MS with a dead battery.  It could have been better, but it could have been a lot worse...so, I won't complain too much.  It is nice to have to 2 days to recover and rest from the travel...and get some quality time with my girl.
