My opinion on all things Charlie Sheen!

Okay...so the guy has gone off the rocker and CBS has cancelled the making of new episodes of T&AH MEN. I understand all that...what I dont' understand is this..."What happened to this guy (besides drugs and alcohol) to make him screwed up in the first place?"

We're talking about the guy who came about in the 80s and made rolls in rolls like "boy in the police station" in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Bud Fox in "Wall Street" look like biographic rolls.

Let's be honest, "Charlie" in T&AH Men had to have been written with Sheen in mind.....he's so MESSED UP.

I also feel bad for the other actors, stage crew, etc. who have been affected by Sheen's "bad choices"...I mean, come on! John Cryer is funny in the show too! And he started out just like Sheen...a star in the 80s. Ducky is one of my favorite 80s characters!! He's classicly dorky and that's what makes Cryer so funny! He plays Ducky all grown up!

But why am I surprised about what's going on with Sheen? If the parts are so close to home, why did some one not see it before NOW? (oh and I know they have) Maybe it's because I thought those were just movies!! I thought that stars lived their lives seperate from their work. But in some sad cases, (like Heath Ledger and Sheen) maybe they can't.

But on the other hand, Sheen has made a lot of money acting a fool on screen. People (like me) have laughed their way through season after season of Charlie's debotchery...and thought it was hilarious!

Are we, the viewers, and the producers, writers and directors partly to blame for actors like Sheen acting like they do? Do we expect them to act like that? Does it make them worht more money?

If so, that's sad and shame on us!

That's all I have to say about that...oh wait...wrong movie! :)

God Bless!

Molly's First Birthday

(Disclaimer: Picture Overload)
On Wednesday, we woke Molly up and wished her "Happy Birthday!" SHe was in a great mood! I was super happy! We got her breakfast eaten, dressed and gave her present to her. Justin and I got her a "big girl" high chair. One that sits in a real chair. She's liking it okay.

We woke up on Saturday morning and chilled out as a family for a little while. Molly got to use her "big girl" high chair again.

Meet the distructo baby!

Molly turned 1 last Wednesday but we celebrated on Saturday! It was at my parent's house and there were about 25 people. (hence the reasson it was there)

Everything went off without a hitch...although there was an issue with the cupcake pops..but more on that in a bit.

We got out to my parent's house around 11:00 am (for the party around 2). I picked up the cupcakes and Molly's cake before hand and was so pleased with them. They were from a bakery in downtown Springfield called Amy Cakes.

I got my dad a cake too b/c it was technically his party as well!

For vendor info see this post.

We, of course, had too much food!! My mom and I always overdo it but I'd rather have too much than not enough!

I was a little nervous b/c I wasn't sure how Molly would do with all the people and some she doesn't see very often. BUT SHE DID AMAZING!!! She was friendly and happy all day.
She looked so cute too!

She didn't really enjoy eating the cake but it was fun watching her pick and "taste" it. We're still struggling with realy food but that's for another post.

This is what was left after her "eating". In reality, I did most of the "damage". Don't you love the skirt and chair cover and balloon? Those are from 1st Wishes.

She is very blessed to have family and friends who care about her so much.

She got her car from her Mammaw and Pappaw (Justin's mom and dad).

She got lots of clothes and pjs. I spent today putting it all away and culling out the clothes that are too small. It's been warm here so I'm toatally in the mood for spring ans summer clothes! I can't wait!

Hope you enjoyed the pics...it was worth all the hard work and stress!

God Bless!


One year ago today...

I gave birth to the most precious baby girl ever! I can't believe it's been a year already.

It seems like Justin and I waited forever for Molly to get here...now, time is flying.

It also happens to be my dad's 53rd birthday! They are have the pleasure of sharing a birthday! I know in all reality, my dad is above the moon to share it with his first grandchild. They have a bond that no one can break!

12 month pics coming tonight or tomorrow. The party is coming along too. It's Saturday and there's still so much to do b/t now and then. I'm going to get a lot accomplished today...b/c I just have too!

Hope everyone is enjoying the same weather we are here in SW Missouri! It's so great!! I love spring weather!! (I'm kinda looking forward to summer though!)

God Bless!


Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day to my wonderful, loving husband Justin!! You are the best husband and daddy that any woman and little girl could ask for!!


Your lobster,


God Bless!
