The first rule of Fight Club....

Tell EVERYONE about Fight Club!!
Well not really but that's just what we did.


I so wish I could take credit for this post but I stole it...word for word....from Jenna! She just has a way with words and I knew I couldn't even come close to it!

Just remember when you read ME...that's Jenna talkin and when you see TIFF I have not officially gone crazy and started refering to myself in the third person! ;)


Tiffany organized a fund raising event with local sports bar, Ferg's. We ran a beer tub, and all tips collected are going straight to the fight for preemies via the March of Dimes!

The people under the stairs
Back row L to R: Preemie Papas - Ryan and Tony
Front row: Christina (our friend and mama to two BEEFY non preemies - seriously, the younger one could be the Michelin Baby!), Tiff, Megan (Tiff's super sweet cousin), and Me!
Not pictured is Nicole. She had to leave before the camera situation was under control (technical difficulties).

All the way from Jacksonville... Tim and Dave!

He's with me! Good grief, what's with the sweat band Ry?!

Jason, Christina, and Ryan

The guys covering for us while we had a "staff meeting"

To say we have generous friends and family would be a gross understatement! The outpouring of support was phenomenal for our first Bottles 4 Babies event. That's right, "FIRST!" We are already cookin' up plans for another down the road!

Fight Club friend and supporter, Eric!

You might recognize a couple of these friendly faces! Josh and Lauren, parents to the precious Green Beans, drove all the way out to support us! And, guys, it's a hike! I've said it before, I'll say it again, these two are amazing! (And, their friend's were a blast too!) Their Green Bean Bracelets are another great way to support the MOD!

Two of our beloved Bayfront Nurses, Heather and Kelly!

Let's give some credit where it's due... First, a BIG thank you to all the friends and family who came out to support this cause! As you well know, The March of Dimes is very near and dear to our hearts. To have you buy our sides, well, that's just priceless. And, we can't forget the loved ones who were home caring for our little miracles while we were out!

Next, we want to give a shout out to Mark Ferguson and the rest of the gang at Ferg's! You guys are the best! We hope to work together again soon.


With our awesome bar-backs!

Our shirts were donated by Tampa Bay Imaging! Thanks guys! They were a hit and we even had some guy outside a bar take pictures! Nicely done!

When it was quitin' time, we hit the town to celebrate our successful evening!

Busy bees, Shelli-Rae and Shandy, managed to fit us into a weekend that was packed, to say the least!

Really curious as to what I was saying here. It couldn't have been good - get a load of his face!

Tony and friends, Brandon and Nick

Such fun! Stay tuned for info on our next Fight Night!

TOTAL randomness

I just noticed it has been way too long since I have posted pics of my sweet little girl!! I am sooooo sorry!!

So because of my laziness....you are getting randomness!!!!

(click on the pics to enlarge them...I made them small since there were soooooo many!!!)

Tessa had tubes put in a week ago...she did AMAZING!!!

I swear this girl has some CRAZY hair!!!
She rocked a Joe Dirt style mullet for a while and still does sort of but it is starting to curl so I can't bring myself to cut it!
What is it with mom's never wanting to cut curls??

Oh and is it just me or does it change shades daily???

Tessa loves books!!! If there is one near she is saying book...pointing to it....and won't stop until you read it to her!

Here she is with a doll I had when I was a little girl. I am pretty sure she started reading that book to the doll....so sweet!

This is another one of Tessa's favorites...a stroll around the house on her okiedog

The last 2 strolls of the night are always "let's chase Pita" strolls....

As you can see it scares Pita to death...or at least enough to cause her eyes to look spooky..

They go so fast that Tony actually has to hold on to Tessa....I am looking for a helmet her size!

Bottles for Babies

I really wanted Beer for Babies but we thought someone would call DCF on us!!

Come out and support us on March 27th as Jenna and I and the rest of our March of Dimes team, Fight Club, serve up the beers at Ferg's Sports Bar in St. Pete.

Ferg is letting us man one of the beer tubs and we get to keep all the tips collected that night!! ALL of them will be donated to our team when we March for Babies on April 24th!

So make sure to mark your calendars and bring your CASH....we.want.tips.!!!
