All in one weekend

We have had an exciting and busy weekend...and its not even over yet.  When I got home from work Friday afternoon, a very excited JT met me at the door. He has his first loose tooth! We have been anxiously awaiting this day. And of course I got teary eyed because I cannot believe my baby is old enough for this milestone. So after I assured him that Daddy would not have to 'punch him in the face' to help his tooth fall out, he started wiggling away to loosen it up more.
Chad and I had a couples wedding shower to attend tonight. JT stayed with my in laws for a few hours and when we returned to pick him up he had another surprise for us. JT has learned how to ride his bike without training wheels! So even though it was dark outside, we shined the headlights on JT and he showed me his talent. Cue more tears...I mean really??!! Not sure how much more I can take. But I was so proud. There is no greater emotion than watching your child learn to do something and seeing him so excited about it.
Tomorrow is Sunday Funday. We have church in the morning and then we will enjoy some great family time for lunch at my Mama's.  The Grammy nominated, New Song, will be in concert at Eastside tomorrow night and we are all so excited about the show. It will be awesome.
Only two more weeks left before my little man returns to school. I have so many things I want us to do together before he starts back but I am not sure how soon they will happen. We are hoping to get in a trip to the Jacksonville Zoo very soon.....Loving My Family! Xoxo

Wonderful Weekend

I had an awesome weekend with my family and some great friends. Chad played in an annual golf tournament at the Westin in Savannah.  In the past, we have always reserved a room and stayed for the enjoy a little grown-up time lol.  However, in our efforts to cut back on our frivolous spending and to stay faithful to a commitment of being in church, we decided to come home after his round of golf on Saturday.
So as Chad headed to the golf course on Hutcheson Island, I met up with my friend Amanda to enjoy a little bit of downtown Savannah. We did a little shopping(just a little), walked around River Street(with hundreds of other tourists), and hung out by the pool(that was full of kids). The weather was hot but still enjoyable. And even though JT is always at the forefront of my mind, I was enjoying my day. As soon as Chad finished his first round of golf we enjoyed some supper then headed home to our little man.
Sunday morning we headed to Sunday School for some great worship and fellowship. At the last minute me and JT decided to go back to Savannah with Chad. Nothing more precious than some quality time with my bubba.  When quickly grabbed a parking spot near City Market and I began showing JT all the neat attractions of downtown. Now after a grueling 10 minutes I was sweating like a man and miserable. So as crazy as it may seem I agreed to escape with JT to  enjoy some air condition at Toys-R-Us.
We made the rounds all over Savannah and enjoyed lots of Mama and Son time. Despite Chad's best efforts, JT is going to be a pretty good little shopper. He loves pushing the buggy around and picking out lots of accessories for Mama. Too bad he doesn't make enough money to pay for them ha! We finally pick up an exhausted Chad from the golf course at 6pm, grab a fattening but delicious drive-thru hamburger and head home. My bed never felt so good after my weekend of roaming the city. Much Love xoxo

...Until We're Wrinkled??

I cannot believe that summer is flying by! I hate it. JT starts school in three weeks and I am so not happy about it. So in my best attempt to put my foot down and pretend that our summer vacation is not nearing the end, we are spending the entire day tomorrow(I hope) at the pool. When I was telling JT my plan he asked me, until we are wrinkled? Yes until we are as wrinkled as a prune.
JT's girlfriend Payton is spending the night tonight and for the exception of Chad we are all sprawled out in the living room slumber party style. And I am enjoying it. So as soon as the sun is up we will be putting on our swimsuits, grabbing the suntan lotion and headed to that large cool body of water that has become my local paradise.  Ham & cheese and PB&J sandwiches are a definite on the menu. I would love to lay on the lounge chair as long as possible and soak up the rays. However if the weather pattern continues I am sure I will not last in the heat. Xoxo

Love this Crazy Life

So after a crazy and very busy work week my number one priority for today was to sleep late. Now sleeping late for me is like 8am. So you can imagine how I felt this morning when a certain little 5yr old was tapping me on the shoulder at 6:45am ready to start the day. In my nicest most patient voice possible I begged JT to climb in the bed with us and go back to sleep. Thank the Good Lord he cooperated and I got to sleep to 8:30am...Whooo hooo!
Then it was off to the wonderful and slightly insane world of Walmart for some grocery shopping. We were beyond tired of living off of ham and cheese sandwiches with no cheese lol. After we survived grocery shopping we spent the afternoon at the pool with some friends and great weather.
Apparently we hadn't done enough for the day so we went back to Statesboro for the second time to enjoy some Nikkos and a little bowling at The Clubhouse where my son is an expert a 'dollaring me to death' as my mama would always say.
Finally we are creeping back into bed to end our Wonderful Saturday with some sweet sleep. However I will probably toss and turn for most of the night. That seems to be my normal routine. But I would NOT trade it for anything....I Love this Crazy Life.
Tomorrow....Sunday Funday!  Xoxo

Blogging huh??

So I thought I would try out the world of blogging...obviously I am new at this. But I love checking out my friend's blogs so I thought, why not? I have thoroughly enjoyed my best friend, Jessica's blog because she is an awesome writer. I dont ever expect to compare but this seems like fun!
So maybe I should start with whats going on with The Cofield's. Nothing entirely exciting but we are loving life.  JT, who will be 6 in October, is definitely the center of our little universe. As independent as he is, he still has some insecurity issues. For instance, everytime we talk about him moving up to kindergarten this year he changes the subject. He loves school, no doubt about that. So I am crossing my fingers that the first day will be an easy transition...for BOTH of us haha!
All that being said, I cannot belive summer vacation is nearing the end. We have had a great summer. Chad and I went to Vegas this first week of June. This was my second trip to 'sin city' as some people call it. And it was just as fabulous as the first time I went. I am already planning my next vacay out west. I have a slight vegas obsession.  JT and I spent a relaxing week in Daytona Beach. It was hard to come home, but because Chad was unable to go with us, we were ready to get back to Claxton at the end of that week. Between VBS, regular trips to the pool, the movies, and the clubhouse, we have had an adventurous and HOT summer.
So how did I do for my first blog entry?? Wait....maybe you shouldnt answer that. Accepting criticism is not always easy. Hopefully I will be back soon......xoxo
