weekend and my first award!

it's been a busy couple of days!  Bubbles isn't gaining weight as quickly as the doctors would like (his dad was 92 pounds in 9th grade- I think he's just going to be tiny!) but they have me taking fenugreek and pumping an hour after he eats - so it's been crazy working the schedule around all the feedings/pumps!

but hubbie's boss gave us tickets to his private suite at the Steeler's preseason game on Thursday night! it was my first game so i was excited! and we won!!

here's our view from the box! my favorite part...our own bathroom! there were 10 of us total so it was MUCH cleaner than the normal bathrooms!

my little cookie monster!

this was our latest dinner out...he looked so cute i had to take a picture in the middle of the restaurant!

soo I was given my first blog award last week! i was so excited and shocked since I only started blogging a week here it is...

I'd like to thank Vicky at Mess for Less for awarding me with the Versatile Blogger Award!  I am so excited that you like my blog!

The rules after accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are:
1. Thank the person who gave the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs.

So here are 7 things about me:
1- I'm a new mom.
2- I adore my baby boy! I could watch him make faces for hours!
3- I married my best friend/high school sweetheart a year ago!
4- I love to try making anything to save money.   
5- I would love to be a realtor or party planner but I'm too scared to do either one.
6- I like cleaning-mostly because i hate a mess! especially in small spaces!
7- I have VERY weird eating i still dont eat the crust of bread or the crunchy ends of french fries!

So now I have to pass this award along to 15 other blogs that I recently discovered and like! I'm still new to the blogging world and working on finding tons of awesome blogs so here's what I have so far.
Please check out all of these awesome blogs!
