The backpack winner has been chosen!
Landon likes this one the best (mostly because it glows in the dark) but also because it has a ton of matching stuff. He wants everything to match it. For now it will just be the backpack and the lunch box. Then later the rain gear and PJ's.
Thank you all for your comments and suggestions!

EDIT: Is the last one too girly? I still have no idea which one to get him...but I don't want it to be too girly. Also if anyone knows other places to get cute backpacks let me know. I just want to get him something a little different. I added more choices.

Since Justin has no idea when he will be home, he asked me if I would order Landon a backpack and have it mailed to the house from him. Easier said then done. Now I have to pick one out! Please help me!!!!

The first one is a jansport. Classic right?! I love jansport, they really are a great company. I just don't know if he's ready for a bag that size. He's only 4 and doesn't even weigh 40lbs.

The other ones I love also! They come in toddler or child sizes. Child being a normal size backpack. These ones also come with matching everything (and if you know me you KNOW I love matchy-match!) So far I love the rocker one and the shark one but I have no idea what one I really want to get him. I tried asking Landon and all he said was that he wanted all of them on different's like my Vera all over again!



Lol he says he wants this lunch box to go with this bag.






The Time Traveler's Wife

I just got done with this book yesterday. It was a really good book and I really think it's going to be an even better movie. Some parts were a little different for me and the language was more then what I like...but all in all it was a great book and I would recommend it.

I'm really looking forward to going to see it when it comes out in the theater!

Up Next!

Since we wiped our computer I no longer have photoshop. I want someone to re-do my blog. Anyone have any good suggestions? I also don't want to have to pay $50 to get it done.


Things have been so crazy here. I'm still not over the fact that Justin left so quickly. I normally do so well with him leaving, but this time I'm not. I'm a wreck. I think the part that gets me the most is that I have no idea when he is going to be home.

Landon and I have been trying to stay busy. We have been going out a bunch with friends and doing lots of crafts and even did a movie night. But I feel so down. I don't have the energy to do anything. I think today I'm going to get off my butt and get the whole house clean. It's not as bad as it could be but it could be better. I'm also purging all of the crap that we don't need anymore. I'm really going to try to blog more again. I just feel like I haven't really been doing anything of interest. Life seems to be crawling by. Here's to it going by faster for the next few weeks.

On my night stand!

My husband is gone again. I'm a little bitter this time because A- We should be leaving to go home next week and B- They only gave us a weeks notice that they were leaving and they won't tell us when our men will be home.

So Hello! Bitter party of one!

When we were getting Justin ready to leave this weekend we stopped at the book store (I think he felt really bad that he was leaving). He bought me 5 YES 5! New books. Mostly for my trip back home, the 7 hour plane ride is not my friend since I get bored so easily.

Anyway! I'm really excited about these books. I have heard great things about all of them!

I added my 2008 book list down below my 2009 one. I can't remember all of the books that I read but I think I got most of them down. A few I think I'm going to re-read this year just because I liked them so much or I want to recap before the movie comes out.

Hello out there!!!!!!

I'm sorry. I hate typing on Justin's laptop so i have been avoiding it at all costs. We have had a busy few weeks her. It's been fun...but very draining.

On Monday we went to the drive-in. We had a BLAST! We put the futon mattress in the back of my car, brought tons of pillows and blankets and camped out. Landon had the time of his life and I think we are going to try to go more often. Not only is it almost the same price (but you get two movies!) but we also don't have to worry about Landon being loud and moving around all the time.

Besides that we have just been trying to get things done. I hope everyone is well. i will try to update my blog a little more once things settle down around here.

My book list is growing! I have read 13 books in the past week and a half! Granted they were not the biggest books in the world. Keep the book suggestions coming!

Book Goal

The past few years I have had a goal of reading 50 books by the New Year. Last year I hit 51 (thanks in large part to my best friend deployment). As of right now I'm on book 30 for this year! I hope to be at about 40 come end of summer! Wish me luck!

Anyone have any great book they recommend?

Oh. If you scroll down my blog, on the right side you will see the books I've read so far this year. I need to find last years list so I can put that up also.
