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.

my crazy head...

So, I guess the pregnancy hormones are really getting to me because about 3 hours ago I cleaned up the house, took some pics, made a flyer, and stuck a for sale sign in the yard.  Simple as that.  Seriously, it is something Todd and I have been talking about for a while, so we figured...why not now?  Here are my/our thoughts...
1) this is not the house we are going to be in long-term...so, I hate sinking money into it.
2) we will soon have 2 kids, 2 years apart.  Instead of putting our money towards private school, it make more sense to spend the $ to move into a good neighborhood with good public schools.  at least your money is going towards something tangible.  
3) i want a pool.  really.  the apartment pool we've been visiting for the past 7 years is just plain grossing me out.  we are lucky enough to have a neighbor with a super nice pool...and he is never there...so, when we can, we go over there and daydream that it is our house.  really.  
4) it may take us a while to get this off of our hands, anyway...so, lets just put it out there and see where it goes.  
5) i will be closer to deli mexicana (this may actually be a financial burden, but i don't want to think about that right now).
6) mud island is just too convenient to work.  not really...this is the only downside i can think of.

any input is appreciated.  i realize i'm crazy.
