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.

Presley had her first trick-or-treating Halloween this year.  We went to all of 4 houses, and asked for just 1 piece at each house.  Maybe it's horrible, or maybe it's good, but I've never given my child candy.  So, she ate 2 suckers and 2 smarties (I may have slipped a piece or 2) in one night.  I'm not sure if it is related or not, but she would not eat any "real" food yesterday, so no more candy for quite some time.  Anyway, we did have a  big time and she really enjoyed it.  She would even keep her pig head on for most of the night.  Oh, and what a good move I made getting her "mo bucket"...we are a big fan of Elmo right now.  Enjoy the pics.

Presley the pig and Marley the loaf of Wonderbread.  Too cute!

I don't give Grace candy either and she wouldn't eat anything... We also had to have the Elmo bucket since he is Grace's boyfriend!!!
