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.

A Real Vaca...kids not included.

The first week of March, Todd and I took a wonderful week getaway to Punta Cana. Oh my, what a beautiful place! The sand was white, the water clear, and the weather a perfect 82 degrees. We mostly stuck around the resort, as it had plenty of restaurants, bars, nightly shows, a nightclub, and a casino. We ventured out to zipline. Just the trip into the mountains was worth it...the scenery was ridiculous! But, the actual zipping was the icing on the cake...so much fun! Todd went fishing one day, but I won't get into that...he came back quite the UNhappy camper. All in all, it was a great week. We of course, missed the kids, but we figure this will be the last trip of this sort for quite sometime. Enjoy...
