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.

Summer Vaca '09

We headed to Orange Beach last week for a mini-vaca before #2 comes.  We had never been and were pleasantly surprised...I'm pretty sure I tried to talk Todd into moving there at least 10 times...to no avail :(  Anyway, we will definitely be back.  Presley LOVED the water...at first, she preferred the pool over the ocean, only because the waves were a bit big on day 1...but, after she got used to it, she loved walking to the rocks, splashing, stepping on sand castles, and CONSTANTLY being able to wash her hands.  For some reason, this kid loves to wash her hands, so when you can dip them in the sand, then immediately run to the water and wash them off...that is big fun.  We ate a lot of good food...a lot.  Presley and I treated ourselves to ice cream 3 nights in a row...and I didn't feel bad about it one bit.  Enjoy the pics!

The best restaurant BY FAR...Cobalt's
Cobalt's had this big fish tank...this is Pres looking at the fish and making her fish face.
Oh...I forgot to mention sea shells...I think we picked up everyone of them!
I got down...not sure how I got up ;)

JoAnna and Presley have at least 2 swimsuits just alike! Yay for Target! What week were you on the beach? We were in Perdido/OrangeBeach the 6th thru 12th.
