Coming Clean

Hey out there!!! Ok, so a few of my friends have done a post asking for people who read their blog to leave comments, and I've been wanting to do the same, so I'm doing so now! I'd love to know who stops by or who reads frequently. I've always been interested in people's lives and their stories, and so for me, blogs are so fun to read. I especially like to read about other families and moms with kids, so chances are that if you're reading my blog, I read yours! So, even if this is your first time here or you're a frequent reader, please leave a comment!!

On another note, I've only gotten into one bachelorette and that was Trista, until now. I'm really into DeAnna as the bachelorette and I can only hope that ABC will allow us to follow along to see her wedding too, and maybe if we're lucky, a baby! :) Although, I'm not sure who I want the husband/father to be. I've made a poll to see what everyone thinks!

I'm totally into this Bachelorette too! I can't believe we didn't talk about this today! I can't wait to see who she picks, but I really hope it's not Jeremy. He kind of gives me the creeps (sorry if anyone knows him since he's from Dallas and all).

Natalie said...

Hey Meredith! I'm still reading along! I hope we can get together someday soon, but until then I enjoy keeping up through your blog!

The Wilson Family said...

You know I read your blog every day!!! I love reading your sweet stories and seeing all your precious pictures of Reid! We love you guys!!!!
Oh, & BTW- I LOVE the Bachelorette!I didn't get to watch it last night- long story, but do you by chance, have it TIVOed??? If so, I may come watch it today! Let me know! I am trying so hard not to look at your poll so I don't know who the final 4 guys are!

Hollie said...

Girl, you know I stop by at some point everyday! OK, I have tried watching the Bachelorette like three times now and something always takes me away from the TV...and I never remember to TiVo it! So, feel free to do a post on a recap to feel me in.....just kidding! :)

Tiffany said...

I love stopping by and reading your blog about Reid everyday. It's so much fun for me to read & think that's where Reagan will be in a year. I'm having a hard time with how much & how fast they grow up!!!

Emily Kretz said...

I enjoy reading your blog and seeing cute Reid! I personally liked the duck call guy from the first episode that she got rid of right away :)

kjsonntag said...

Hey there! I love reading about your little family! Reid is so precious! I like seeing his personality coming out in the pics!

Meredith-- I found your blog through Courtney Christianson's since we were friends at Baylor. I then found Natalie Brown Timmerman's through yours which was really fun since we were Zetas together! I've enjoyed reading about Reid especially since I was preggers through many of those first months. Brooks (yes, as in Samuel Palmer Brooks...we're big Baylor dorks) was born in January and we're having lots of fun with him!! Emily

Hunter, Amanda, Hudson and Maddie said...

Leslie said...

Graham is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I like Jesse too. But Graham is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lucy said...

hi. I admit it. I read your blog. I found it through the Penuels (I pretty much read all the blogs that they have on their list... whoops. Sorry for stalking your friends, Alli). Chapman and Alli were in a Watermark playgroup with my daughter Eleanor and me. Reid is such a cutie. My maiden name was Reid, so if we have a boy he will most likely be named Reid. Alight, enough rambling. Thanks for letting me stalk your blog.

Hi Meredith...
I got attached to your blog through my sister-in-law Hollie, even though we were Pi Phi'd together at BU (small world)! I really like reading your blog!
Sincerely,
Annie

Team Carroll said...

Okay...so, I'm guilty too!! My savvy blogstalking skills led me to your page and I just love reading all about Reid...he's too precious! I love reading about other Mommies & their kids also...I have a little man of my own so it's fun to see what I have to look forward to :) I promise I'm not a creepy stalker ;)
AND...I love the Bachelorette!! I'm all about Graham...he's just too cute!!
PS: I might have to copy you...I'm always wondering who's reading my blog!! Sweet idea!
~Cara

Summer, Justin, & Blake said...

I love your blog of course!! And ok, I like this season of the Bachelorette, but seriously can't stand Deanna ... and why oh why is Jesse still on there?! I like Graham and Jason, but they could do way better than Deanna! :)

Scott & Terry said...

Hey girl, you are on my favorites page for sure! Reid is so super adorable and I love keeping up with the cute stories you write about him and your family. I do not watch the Bachelorette but only b/c I don't take the time to watch...I did see one of the shows and that girl is beautiful. Let's get the little ones together soon.
-Terry

Ashley said...

I am sure you already know this but I am a blog stalker and yours is on my list of daily must checks! LOVE Reid and Love you... :-)

Brenna said...

Hey Meredith! I am a daily reader too. Reid is just precious!

kinsey said...

hey meredith. i'm a reader! i was a kappa at baylor (with summer and emily kretz and ashley, etc...). anyway, i enjoy reading about your cute little family. love the bachette too...i think i'm wanting either jason or graham to win!

Carter's mommy said...

I've been keeping up with you and Reid through your blog. It's so fun to see what other mommies are doing with their little ones. I used to be an avid Bachelor watcher (I was even in an inservice with a girl who was one of the final 2 bachelorettes one season) but since I've had Carter, I've fallen off the band wagon, but now I wish I had wacthed it!

Mommy of Multiples...Lizzy D. said...

No joke! By far, this is my fav bachelorette since Trista. Ryan and Trista are really the perfect couple.

I love the internet. It is so awesome to keep up with your family, after so many years. It's so fun to reconnect in this way. I don't know what I'd do if blogs did not exist. :) Keep writing and posting all those cute pictures of your sweet family.

ashleigha said...

Hi, my name is Ashleigh, I found your blog through a friends blog. I love reading your blog, about the fun baby playgroups and all the things that you expereince with your son My daughter was born May 2007, so they are close in age. I do have a blog, but I had to go private bc of some scary comments to my husbands pictures in his military uniform. If you would like to read my blog, send me a email and I will send you an invite to view my blog. I also have a 4 year old son. Reading blogs is so much fun, even if you dont know the people, seeing the cute babies is fun too.

my email is beauashleigh@yahoo.com

Lindsay Wagner said...

Hi Meredith! I love checking your blog. I am friends with Amanda Ramsey, and that is how I came across your blog. I have a daughter who is almost 11 months so I love seeing what moms are doing with their kiddos who are a little older so I have ideas of what to do when my little one gets to that age. I don't have a blog, but I do have a shutterfly site. If your interested in looking at it you can get the password from Amanda! Reid is just darling!

Hillary Kouba said...

Good idea with the comments. I might be stealing it soon! As for the bachalorette, yes, I have been into all of them and I love Deanna and either Jason or Jeremy for her. Hope to see you soon!

andydawn said...

I love to read others too! You have a cutie!

I know Brittney Poe.

The Rowe Crew said...

The Bass Family said...

Meredith-
You know I am a reader! I just wish we would have gotten to know each other better when we were both teaching in Allen! I love reading about your sweet boy and you have such interesting blogs! I think I might do the same thing on mine to see who all stops by! Oh and BTW... I really think Jason should win..although Graham is a HOTTIE!

Donnell Days said...

I definitely stop by your blog every day!!! :)

TeamRiss said...

Dunhams said...

We check your blog pretty much everyday; and I love this Bachelorette too! I actually really like all of the guys that are left, except Jeremy...he's kind of a stereo-typical Dallas guy. Hope to see you guys soon!

sarabraun said...

Hi Meredith! I'm not sure you remember me from high school (Sara Anderson) but your little guy is just precious and you do such a great job updating the blog on your family.
I have three little boys and I know how special moments like "peekaboo" are.
PS I don't watch the Bachelorette, but she lives in Newnan which is just a town over from us. My friend Laura (who knows DeAnna) says she's seen her at the grocery store decked out like Britney Spears in disguise from the paparazzi!

Laura said...

Hi Meredith, I love reading your blog and watching your cute little boy grow up! We look forward to seeing you on Saturday night!
Laura

Liz and Garth said...

Hi Meredith and Reid! I found you all a while back while "blog hopping". I love checking in on your blog to see what you all are up to. I am extremely impressed that you are training for a marathon. Training for a 5k is hard enough for me! Keep up the fun posts, they definitely keep me entertained and inspired! :-)

Allyson, Cam, & Harper said...

Hi Meredith and Reid! I occassionaly check your blog via Summer's blog and then today I ran across your blog again on the Theaux's page. I grew up with Katie and Summer is a long time friend. I read that your husband works for edward jones, my husband does as well...so I felt compelled to say hello!

The Pursifull Family said...

Hey Meredith...I am not sure if you remember me...I teach in Allen, we met at summer camp a few years ago, and I am friends with Carrie Irons....I have her blog address and saw yours, so I look at it periodically and actually I created one yesterday! I will add you to my friend's list. Mine is: thepursifulls.blogspot.com

***Reid is adorable!!!!!

holley said...

Hey Meredith, it's Holley from the good 'ol CHS days. This weekend I was hanging out with Brandy and we were talking about our blogs and she mentioned yours. I haven't seen/talked to you in forever, so just wanted to say hi. You have a beautiful family, I love your blog. You'll have to check out my blog
themackeys00.blogspot.com
Hopefully we can keep in touch!
Holley

The Franzens said...

Meredith...I just read what you wrote about blog stalking and I cracked up. I have been reading your blog through the Irons' blog and love it! I also went to Baylor (class of 2000) and am a teacher in San Antonio. You have such a great family, and I love the stories!! Take care--Kristen Franzen (kfranz@neisd.net)

Michelle Driver said...

Hi Meredith! I was blog hopping last night and saw your update through Kara's blog. It was about 5:30pm and I was hungry! I saw your recipe for Ritz Cracker Chicken and called Drew immediately and had him pick up the ingredients. It was really good! Thanks for sharing and what a great idea. One of many that I will plan on stealing from your blog and all of the other great blogs :)
Michelle Driver

Tina said...

I stumbled across your blog and your little man is a sweety (through the Pursifull blog).
Enjoy him :-)

Chris, Whitney, and Leighton said...

Hey Meredith! I am still learning this whole blog thing works so hopefully I am posting this in the right place. Congrats, Reid is a cutie. Looks like Mommyhood agrees with you! :)

crazimusicaddict said...

hey meredith!
i love the new layout; it's very snazzy.
hope i get to see this weekend

love,
theresa

holley said...

hey meredith- i was just thinking about your family and your food problem. we have gone through many of the same things. right now my little one won't drink water or milk, so i have to flavor the water. still haven't figured out the milk yet. but, i was thinking have you tried putting your food in one of the lil' entree trays? it's worth a try. i would start with something similar to what comes in the entrees, though. anyway, just thought i would see if you had tried that trick:) good luck, he'll eventually try mommy's yummy food.

Helen said...

hey meredith! your blog is so cute! i got to it though amanda ramsey's blog! where did you guys stay in cabo? we are going over christmas and are still scheduling our plans...last minute! any tips? thanks! helen (mast) lary

Tony and Sarah said...

Meredith, I ran across your blog from the Jetter blog. I was Gina's freshman roommate at Baylor and we continue to be close friends. I really enjoy your weekly menus and have used several of your recipes when planning my weekly menu. I especially enjoyed the Black Bean Chicken and Tator Tot Casserole! Thanks for sharing!

Ashley, Kyle, and Baby Boy said...

hi! your blog is adorable! i stumble over here from time to time from summer's blog.
my son is reid too and is nearly one at the end of them month.
my husband has a job opportunity in dallas and we've been looking at areas to live. i went to smu but didn't really spend enough time there to know where i would want to raise my family.
i was reading ur new posts and loved the one with the boys at the park and a picnic. i love that community.
may i ask where you live- what area...it seemed so new, but warm and friendly!
you can e-mail me at ashleyHbaughman@gmail.com and i'd love your perspective on where to raise a family in dallas....with really good elementary schools!

Sarah said...

Hey Meredith! I found your blog through Cara Carroll's. She and I are friends through Christy -"Just Jack" blogger and my sorority sister. It's so much fun to read about your family. Reid is just darling and you do a great job of updating your blog. Can't wait to read more...

crazimusicaddict said...

Jill said...

Hey Meredith....My name is Jill and I found your blog through my friends' rowecrew and poefam. I'm confessing to all my blogs that I'm a reader. So, I hope you don't mind me reading yours. I read your's every once in a while, but still wanted you to know.

Your family is precious!! :)

Oh, and I hope you don't think this is weird. I ran into you the other day at Church and I wanted to say, "Hi". But I had to stop myself, realzing you and I never met before. Your just a blog friend. In my head, I felt like I completely knew you. Sorry!! It was prety Embarassing.

Anyways, just wanted to confess! - Jill

Michelle Hausz said...

Meredith, where can I find your wonderful recipes? Love your decorating ideas- my most frustrating thing about owning a house!
