Catching Up!

Ahhhhh!!! I'm missing everything in the blog world! I even missed weigh-in Wednesday!!! Are you kidding me?? Lots of things have been going on in life lately. Things are ridiculous and unnecessary, but I won't bore you with the details!

I've been sick since this past Sunday, with what my Dr. calls "northeast Ohio crud" I'm sure that's a technical term!

So on a happy note; I thought I'd share some pics of my boys coloring eggs!!

My parents came over to help. That's my dad with both boys. We also visited the Easter bunny this past weekend. It went ok for Cole, not so ok for Drew!

Usually it's Cole that hates characters, which is why we have put off the Disney trip for a while! I also wore a scarf for the first time ever this past weekend. Not gonna lie, we had to youtube how to tie it! haha. Don't judge!
The look on my face is interesting. I was taking the pic as proof I was wearing the scarf, and it ended up looking more like a mug shot! haha!

Happy Easter blog friends. Take time to remember the reason we celebrate, and enjoy your time with whomever you are spending the day with! It has been a rough week for me, and it just makes me even more thankful for my friends, blog friends included of course, and my family. Have a great weekend!!

Finish the Sentence Linkup

 I've been kinda MIA lately on the blog front! Just been busy busy...

With that said, I'm moving on to bigger and better things like linking up with Jake and Holly for another Finish the Sentence linkup !!!



1. If calories didn't count, I would eat...chocolate, chocolate, and MORE chocolate!!!

2. On my Prom night....I went with a friend, had an ok time.....then wanted to fall asleep at our after-prom party. I never once went to a dance with someone I really wanted to go with. I know that's terrible to say. But, it wasn't until I got married that I actually got to dance with someone I wanted to dance with!! LOL

3. When I go to the store, I always buy...bread. We throw so much bread away it's crazy! We don't eat sandwiches around here I guess!!

4. Family functions typically...a good time!! We laugh, eat, play games, and just have fun together!

5. I think my blog readers...are wonderful!! I look forward to hearing from them each day!

6. I'd much rather be.....feeling healthy today instead of feeling like my head is going to explode, and not being able to breathe through my nose! yuck!!

7. I have an obsession with....Duck Dynasty and Dallas. Loooove both of them!!

8. My work friends....I'm a stay at home work friends are my kids! lol So I looooove them!

9. When I created my Facebook account....It was back in the day when facebook was only for college students. Remember that?

10. My least favorite word is...panties. I hate it even when referring to little girl undies. HATE IT!

11. I really don't remember....What it was like before I had kids. We lived in apartment, and I seriously don't remember much of that time. So weird. 

12. Justin Bieber....I love the song "Baby" I have no shame. But, that's really all I know about The Biebs.

Liebster Stuff!

Just when I have been completely running out of things to write about, Kimmy nominated me for a Liebster award. I am just happy I'm not the only one reading my blog! haha. But no really, I'm super excited about this. You know deep down everyone wants to make it big in the blog world, and to me....this is making it big! haha. I've told you before I found Kimmy on Keek, before I even knew about her blog....her blog is just icing on the cake for me! I have a few blogs that are my "must reads" everyday, and she's definitely on that list!

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
  • Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  • Go to their page and tell them.
  • No tag backs!
11 Things About Myself:

1. I'll be 30 in July
2. I'm a reality TV Junkie
3. I'm a girl who loves cars. My husband is amazed at my ability to tell what make and model a car is in the dark, just by it's headlights
4. I'm usually asleep every night before 10PM
5. I love spaghetti, but don't make it much because my hubs doesn't like tomatoes! He won't even eat ketchup!
6. For 10.5 hours a day, I don't talk to anyone over the age of 4
7. I have about 6 different sizes of jeans in my closet
8. I have enough makeup for my own cosmetics store, yet I use the same products over and over
9.I'm very much a morning person. By 7pm, look out. I'm heading into bedtime mode!
10. I always have big plans to cook dinner everynight, but it rarely happens. I usually make something for the kids, and then find something for myself. On the rare nights that my hubs is home for dinner, we usually go out.
11. My to-do list is always 5 miles long. I seem to be pretty worthless on weeknights with getting anything accomplished. See #9. I'm like a preschool age child.....melt down mode sets in when I get tired. Sometimes I act more like a 4 year old in evenings than my son, who will be 4 in April.

Now for Kimmy's Questions:
1. Favorite movie quote: Ohhh man this is a tough one! We use many on a daily basis in this house! I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old, so I watch a lot of kids shows. One quote that I use all the time is "Son of a building block" from Toy Story. Not the best parenting move on my part!  I actually try not to say it, but it happens. I also say "ohhhh Kelly Clarkson" a lot lol. But one of my all time favorites is in the movie "40 Year Old Virgin" when the girl he meets at the bar is drunk, and is driving back to her place (that part is not funny) and she almost hits another car and she says "F%&#@% Came outta Nowhere" gets me every time!
2. Most embarassing moment: In 5th grade it was the cool thing to do, to eat breakfast at school. Well, I knew that my crush Kyle ate breakfast at school every morning. So that made me want to do it even more! He was in 6 th know the cool older guy. So my friend and I decided that we would just happen to sit near him at breakfast. They had those little frozen juices that looked like an applesauce cup that you stuck a straw in the middle of. While drinking this juice my friend said something funny.....and that juice shot out of my nose faster than I knew what hit me! Right in front of my crush, Kyle.

3.Biggest struggle as a human being: I am a firm believer in the Golden Rule. I do my best to treat others the way I want to be treated. I also try to live my life as a good Christian. I was raised in a church, I go to church now but not every week like I used to, but Cole does attend a Christian preschool. I don't believe you need to go to church every week to be a good Christian. It's a way of life. I try not to judge others, and I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I often have to remind myself to do these things. It's sometimes easy to get caught up in thinking you're perfect. I am by far, nowhere near being perfect. I also struggle remembering to just be me. Not to get caught up with what others are doing, just stay true to myself, and be me.

4.Favorite Sports Team: Ohio State Buckeyes. Go Bucks!! and as sad as it is Cleveland Browns, and can't forget the Cavs. Gotta represent! haha.
5.Favorite Exercise: Does this include lifting the fork to my mouth?? lol Just kidding. I guess I would have to go with walking. I'm not a runner, I've attempted a few times, it's just ugly. Truth is, I can walk as fast as some people jog, so I that's what I do!

6.Chocolate or Vanilla: Chocolate!

7.Favorite Drink: Iced tea!!!! or Wild Cherry Pepsi

8.Best Childhood Memory: Family vacations to Myrtle Beach. The excitement of getting ready for the trip, was the best!! I remember going back to Myrtle Beach when I was 18, and thinking "this is it?" lol. It's so much different when you're younger

9.What thumbprint do you hope to leave on the world when you go? My goal is to be genuine. When I'm gone and people remember me, I wanna be one of those people that everyone says "She was always so nice", or something like that. I've lost many classmates already....about 12, and I can honestly say all that are gone were always nice, no matter what. That's what I remember about them...their kindness. I also of course want to be the best parent I can be.

10.Favorite Type of music: I don't have a favorite. My ipod ranges from AC/DC to Eric Church to Tupac, lol. I listen to it all. I'm a big classic rock lover, and a hair band lover as well! I also love REO Speedwagon, and Styx. Don't hate, lol

11. Paper of Plastic: Well in this neck of the woods, paper is no longer an option!

My Questions:
1. Favorite TV show?
2. Favorite cartoon as a child?
3. Greatest accomplishment thus far?
4.Early bird or night owl?
5.Favorite quote?
6.Do you come from a big family or a smaller family?
7.If you were an animal, what would it be,and why?
8.What's your style? Heels, or Sweats?
9. What is your perfect weekend?
10. Is blogging like a job to you, or just for fun?
11. How long have you had a blog?

I tag:

1. Marcy
2. Shelli
9.Lisa W.

I apologize if I tagged someone who was already tagged. This post literally took me two days to complete!

Weigh-In Wednesday

AHHH!!! My days are super busy lately and my blog is getting neglected!! I just got a few new kiddos, and one is another infant, so I've been way busier than normal!  I've been planning to do a home tour, and I still need to do Drew's birthday party....and have yet to get to either of them! I'm going to have to start doing my posts at night!

It's Wednesday, so that means those other posts will have to wait! Weigh-In Wednesday today!
Last week I said, I wasn't going to let the scale control my life! Well a little secret that I didn't share was that I did weigh myself that week, and I was up 4 pounds from the 3 birthday parties I had attended that weekend! I just wasn't in the mood to face that last week! I actually hadn't been on the scale since, until today. I'm down 1 pound from my weight 2 weeks ago....but if you count the 4 pounds I had gained and now have lost again.....I'm actually down 5 pounds from last Wednesday. Make sense? To me it does :)

My workouts are still non-existent. I'm ashamed to say it, but it's true! I gotta get with it on the exercise front! I'm still doing well with portion control, and eating good foods. It's funny, I don't even really want junk food anymore. Maybe every now and then, but I don't crave it like I used to. That's a good feeling! Today is the first day of spring....which usually stresses me out! Because I'm not ready yet. I still wouldn't be seen in a pair of shorts if you paid me but, I at  I'm feeling like I've been making an effort this year as opposed to other years! Progress.
I'm a big ice chewer....not sure that chewer is a word lol. They say if you're anemic, which I am, you chew ice....or they say it means you're sexually be the judge! :) I think it's safe to say I'm going to start writing posts at night, because this post has very little content, and it just took me two hours to complete! Yikes!
Happy Hump Day! Can't wait for my fill of Jase tonight! Wednesdays are my favorite :)

Happy Birthday Drew!

I'm baaaaack. The end of the week got a little crazy for me last week! I had new kids visiting, and kids coming at crazy hours....and lots of finishing touches to do for Drew's 1st Birthday party that was this past Saturday! I am behind on reading blogs, and didn't get to post for two days! I feel so out of the loop! It's funny how you feel like you're missing everything when you don't get a chance to read what everyone has to say for a few days! Or is that just me?

I plan on doing a post tomorrow on Drew's party. I don't have all the pictures together yet.....but of course I have to show a few that I have ready for today!
Cole was ready to party!! It took us about an hour and a half to set up before guests actually arrived...Cole was ready to get the show on the road!
Drew barely touched his cake! He had gotten up at 6am and was basically a zombie by the time the party came at 1pm! He had just had an allergy test two days before and we found out that he is NOT allergic to milk or eggs!!! We are so thankful, and relieved! So his cake was the first time he's ever had anything sweet! He hasn't been allowed to have milk, eggs, beef, wheat, nuts, or any type of fish till he was 1! He's still not allowed any nuts or fish (probably wouldn't give him fish anyway) until 18 months.....but he's good to go on milk, eggs, and wheat! YAY!!! Maybe it was too much of a shock to eat something that sweet! haha

Time flies! I feel like it goes even faster with the second baby! I definitely feel like Drew was just born!
My little lucky charms, yesterday on St. Patrick's Day, and Drew's birthday!! The kitchen set behind them is what Drew got for his bday from us. Cole wanted a kitchen for Christmas 2011, but my hubs was all, "that's a girl toy" and bought him a grill instead! Needless to say Cole loves this new kitchen as well! Sometimes the hubs needs to get out of 1950, lol. Although he may have been born around that JK
My parents came over yesterday evening....both boys, and my dad playing with some left over balloons from the party. I think Drew would have rather had all the balloons, than the presents!! Tomorrow, I'll have all the pictures from the party. It turned out very cute. :)

Weigh-In Wednesday

I've decided I'm no longer going to let the scale control my life! I didn't even step on the scale today. I just feel blah, and I just don't wanna know!

 If you've read my story under my "weight-loss" tab you've already read I apologize.

Anyway....When I first met my hubs, I feel like I looked good. I was confident, thin, and happy. I wasn't tiny....I was a size 12! I wore size medium, and large shirts....again not super small. But, I looked good. I don't know if it's where I carry my weight or what, but people who weigh less than me, always look heavier than me! Now I'm not saying by any means that I am happy where I am right now. I AM NOT. I've gone beyond that "I feel good" attitude. I don't feel good, and I want to be back to where I was when I met my hubs in 2005. Granted, that was before 2 babies....but still.

I'm not really in love with any certain number on the scale that I want to see. I am however, in love with clothes that I want to fit in. That was always how I judged my weight. I went by how I looked, and felt. It worked until I hit this point of no return! I think the scale is know where you stand....but I'm not going to let it determine if I'm failing or succeeding anymore!

I honestly don't know my exact weight when I met my hubs. I just know the size clothes I was wearing. I probably hadn't been on the scale in a year when I first met him. I didn't really have the need to. I was content with where I was.

Excuse the goofy pose. I was 22, and an idiot. This is my point. I look thin there, or at least I think I do. Those pants are from American Eagle, size 12....the shirt is a Large. Not small sizes at all.....but I looked good! That's all I want!

Another point. Those pants I have on are a size 13...and the shirt a Large. But, again....I felt thin. I think I look thin. I'd be happy with just feeling I look good. I don't know know how much I weighed in these pics. I just didn't care. I'm guessing I need to be about 60 pounds lighter to look like this again....well now 45, I've lost roughly 15. These are my goal pictures. I have goal PICTURES, not a goal NUMBER.

That of course does not mean I'm going to stop linking up for Weigh-In Wednesday though!! I do have a goal weight that I'd like to get to before I start this whole "Go by how I feel" attitude again. First things first......the initial fatness must go. Like I said, I'm not happy where I'm to get to that point, I have no choice but to watch the scale for a while. But, I'm definitely going to stop weighing myself so often!

Lastly, if you're looking for a new blog to read, check out my new blog friend Erin at Homemade Happenings! She's almost to 100 followers!! She's currently doing a button swap, so go check her out! I'll be trying out that "Tank Top Arm" workout she posted yesterday! Warm weather will be here before you know it!! Check her out! :)

10 Things About Me

Today, I'm going to talk about 10 things you may, or may not know about me! Exciting right? Remember on myspace when you would always fill out those questionnaires? I loved those things! Those would make excellent blog posts! I like to read about everyone's favorites, pet peeves, that kinda thing.

Some of you may already know some of these things, depending on how long you've been reading:

1. I'm obsessed with Duck Dynasty and watch a re-run pretty much everyday.

2. I work from home, and can sometimes go up to 5 days without leaving the house, and it usually takes me till about day 4 to realize it!

3. I could drink McDonalds unsweet tea, every second of the day, but recently had to give up caffeine! AHHHH

4. I absolutely hate to put laundry away, and will walk around the baskets until it's time to do more laundry!

5. I don't post my blog on Facebook, or Twitter because I don't want my friends that I see on a daily basis to know about my blog.

6. I am one of the grammar police! I can't stand misspellings, or when the wrong form of a word is used. Ex: There, Their, They're....or To, Too, Two. Makes me crazy!! I know, I one is perfect and I know there are many mistakes in my lil ole I shouldn't judge! Now please excuse the many ecards about grammar. They are just funny to me. I had to cut it down to just 3, I could go on all day! Yes, this is VERY important to me! I stopped reading a certain blog, because the spelling stressed me out so much. I'm very much aware that this is pathetic! :)

7. I have a minor in English, and was told by one of my professors to stop writing how I talk. Who knew 7years later I would enter the blog world and writing how I talk would be the cool thing to do!

8. I'm an only child.

9. My hubs is 8 1/2 years older than me.

10. I worry about everything. I worry if there isn't anything to worry about.

There you have it......I'm sure you'll sleep better tonight knowing more about me ! :) I'm planning on doing a home tour sometime this week. We'll see. I've been researching blog topics.....I am in a rut and booooored. What do you wanna read about?

Busy Weekend!

This weekend was one of the best I've had in a long time! We had 3 birthday parties in 2 days! 1 was at Chuck E. Cheese. Wow, those people do not get paid enough!! That place was nuts! But, we had a good time! Cole is scared to death of Chuck E. He calls him "the rat". He was nervous before we even went that "the rat" was going to come near him. But, we made it through with no melt downs, and only a few Chuck E. sightings. Drew was less than impressed with Chuck E. Cheese!

With three birthday parties in one weekend, comes a lot of bad food! 2 out of 3 parties served pizza. I did pretty well, 1 piece at each party. I had 1 piece of cake between 3 parties, so I'm pretty excited about that! However, I did chow on some taco dip at the last party. That stuff was freaking amazing! Ya win some, ya lose some I guess. 
 The weather here in Ohio has been less than impressive, until this was beautiful!!! It was nice out saturday, but sunday was great!!! Almost 70 degrees!! Love it!!! I want it to stay!!!! I got to go to the grocery store alone on sunday better believe I had my sunroof open at 9 am.....hey, I saw sun that's all I needed!!
I FINALLY got my hair highlighted this weekend. My hubs does it for me! SSSSSHHHH!!! That stuff takes FOREVER, especially with 2 little kids in the house.......but we got it done!! Here is the awkward selfie documenting!

I was busy trying to show the hair, and totally didn't think about how my weird facial expression was also going to be in the pic, lol. 
We had a great weekend, with my hubs being home with us, and great weather! I wish every weekend could be this good!!! This coming saturday is Drew's bday party! I still have a lot to do, ahhh! Gotta get a serious dent made in the kids goodie bags this week! Have a great Monday!!

Finish The Sentence Link-Up

Today, I'm linking up with Holly! For "Finish the sentence.."

1. People always tell me.... to stop worrying and relax! I'm a worrier...I can't help it!

2. In the movie based on my life...Viewers would fall asleep watching. Unless you find a mom of 2 boys who is asleep by 9:30 pm exciting :)
3. Typically, I end up regretting... Being so passive. I need to grow a pair sometimes.

4. I always ask to leave off the....onions!! yuck!

5. Kim and Kanye really... Drive me nuts! Yet, I watch when I can. Not a huge fan....but I can't stop, lol

6. My Parents always reminded me...Not to judge people. That I'm no better than anyone else.

7. Every single day I.....want a nap. Hey, a girl can dream right?

8. This one time in College....I kinda dated a guy, that ended up playing for the other team. I hope I wasnt the deciding factor!div>

9. My grossest habit is...I can't stand boogers in Drew's nose, and I will pick at them till I get them out. I know, I know, disgusting

10. My latest white lie was... Telling Cole if he didn't take his medicine, that he was going to have to go to the hospital. I know....not the best parenting move....but the kid refuses to do everything these days it seems like! Gotta do what I gotta do!

11. I know all the words to...Every Britney Spears song ever written. I can't say I'm proud of this but it's true!

12. When I grow up...I want to write children's books. I've written a few but never send them anywhere for anyone of importance to read

13. Sexy time is...When my hubs showers before bed, or actually makes the bed. I know something is up when one or both of these things happen. (I don't know why he makes the bed, lol he's weird)

15. I think it's hilarious...When Cole yells "Oh the humanity" and falls on the floor.

NSV, Blog Crushes, and a New Look!


It's Thursday so that means "Non-Scale Victories"! These can be anything in your life, right? This week mine have to do with my health. I've mentioned multiple times that I am extremely anemic. We've known this since I was pregnant with Cole 5 years ago. I may have been anemic before then.....we just didn't find out until I was pregnant. I've been put on iron supplements multiple times. I take them for a few days......and then stop because they cramp my stomach so bad. Well after 2 pregnancies.....and my baby turning 1 in a few days....I'm still anemic and have been put on iron pills AGAIN. This time I don't have a choice but to take them.

So Non-Scale Victory #1:
I have started taking 1/2 an iron pill every other day. I know to some that sounds like nothing.....but to me? That is huge. I'll eventually build up to 1 pill every other day....but I know I just can't handle them daily. So baby steps for now. It's not a lot....but it's something!

Non-Scale Victory #2: 
I've been eating more iron enriched foods....which basically means, healthier foods! Spinach has a lot of I've started adding spinach to my salads.....eating more fruit......more lean meats.....very little carbs. This is probably why I saw an 8 pound weight loss in 1 week! HOLLA!!

That completes my Non-Scale Victories for this week............for me they are big ones!

I couldn't resist this link up! My first blogger crush would have to be Holly. She's my blog mentor! haha. When had 3 followers, she was one of them. Helped me figure out what I'm doing on here....and comments on everything when no one else was. Love her for that. For making me not feel all alone in this blog world! :)
Next on my blogger crush list Kimmy. I'm fairly new with Kimmy's blog.....actually found her on keek first! She is DEFINITELY my number one keek crush! haha. Makes me laugh out loud on a daily basis! Now if I could just get her to start watching Duck Dynasty, her life would be complete! haha.

Next up is  Marcy she cracks me up with her grap
hics on her blog each day! The barbie ones are my favorite! And she just lost 100 pounds. Freaking amazing!!!!

Last but certainly not least, Erin. She shares my love of country music, is super-mom, and she goes to the Grammy's! How could you not like to read about that???

 These are only 4 of my faves.....there are more! I could really go on all day....but I won't. You're welcome!

In other news....did you notice my new blog design?!?! Thank you Hubby Jack I feel like one of the cool kids now!! :)

And I just had to add this ecard in today, because it seriously made me laugh out loud! There are times when I feel like this is so true!!!

That's all I have for today! I'll be checking out all of you ladies linking up for the NSV today!!! Have a great day!

Weigh-In Wednesday!

Today is my best Weigh-In Wednesday yet! I went to the Dr. last tuesday, and from their scale then to my scale this morning....I'm down 8 pounds! HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!! Granted when I'm weighed at the Dr. I'm weighed in clothes, shoes, jewelry and at home I'm....well, not. lol You get my drift! But hey, I'll take it!

My goal last week was to lose 10 more pounds by Drew's birthday party on the 16. I didn't think I was going to be able to do it.......but now I have only 2 more pounds to go and a week and half to do it! So unless I do something stupid and gain weight....I feel confident that I may be able to reach my goal, and maybe more! That would be fantastic if it were more than 10 pounds! But, I'll be happy with 10 for 2 reasons. 1. Because it's 10 freaking pounds and 2. Because I actually met a goal.

My workouts are still slacking, but my eating is much better. I haven't been eating all healthy however. I eat what I want....I just eat a ton less of it. Everything in moderation right? Since I'm extremely anemic...I've had to go back on iron pills. I've started them a few times before and always stop taking them because they hurt my stomach so bad. But, this time I don't have a choice.....I HAVE to take them. So I'm starting off slow. I take a half of a pill every other night. So far, I'm doing ok on them....but I have been feeling a little nauseous every now and then. Iron is not fun. But hopefully with the changes in my diet, and the iron supplement...things will start to turn around. I found out that tea depletes iron. Up until a week ago when I found this out....I was drinking at least 32 oz of unsweet tea a day! I loooove iced tea. No sugar, no sweetener, just iced tea. Now I can only have it in moderation. I've actually cut out all caffeine all together....for iron reasons. It hasn't been horrible, actually a little easier than I expected. As long as I know I can have it once in a while as a "treat" then I'm good. It's amazing what you can do, when you don't really have a choice anymore! haha. I definitely feel better.....with cutting out most of the "crap food". My Dr. told me....this is a lifestyle change, and he's correct. Lots of changes, but so far so good!

This made me laugh....because it really is the truth. It just takes some of us longer than others to figure that out! I'm super excited about my 8 pounds......ready for another 8!  Happy Hump Day!!

New Followers!

I've noticed over the past week, I've gotten about 5 new followers! Yay!   Welcome!  After 7 months of blogging, I still really don't know what I'm doing on here! So, thank you for following along as I try to figure it out! :)

I thought since I have some new followers that this may be a good time to ask, what you want to read about? Any posts, that you'd like me to do? Anything you wanna know? I know I'm a pretty exciting person...haha riiiiiight.

I'm pretty open about things. Obviously, or I wouldn't have a blog! You basically open yourself up to the world when you start a blog. So if you have any questions, or want to know anything....just ask! Hopefully that will give me some new topics to write about! Recently, I asked my Mom if she would like to read my blog. Her response was " I listen to you talk everyday, why would I want to read it too?" Ok.....umm nevermind? She obviously doesn't get it! :)

My desktop has a virus, still! AHHH. So I've been using my older than dirt laptop for a couple weeks. It's slow, it's missing the key on the letter L, and it likes to delete full paragraphs after I've typed them! I'm close to a nervous breakdown before I actually get to publish my post each morning! Getting my desktop fixed soon! Which brings me to my next point.....I do read all of your blogs each day, I promise. But my trusty old laptop, likes to make that little comment box on some of your blogs disappear! That makes it so I can't comment! AHHH. Some of you it likes, some of you it doesn't! Sorry!! I am reading....honestly! I always feel like to be a good "blog friend" you must comment! And if someone comments, on your blog and you don't comment on theirs....that is just rude! I don't know if that's really how it is.....but I always feel guilty if I receive a comment, and I don't comment back! I may have issues. I am a polite blogger, what can I say?

Weigh-In Wednesday tomorrow.....I'm hoping for good things!! Have a great Tuesday!

Party Planning

Most of you already know that my little Drew will be turning 1 on St. Patrick's Day! His first birthday party theme is of course, St. Patrick's Day! We are in full party planning mode around here! Everything is mostly done, and planned.....we just have to put it all together on party day! We only have an hour to decorate so that's stressing me just a tad!

His invitations turned out so cute! I ordered them from Zazzle. They were a little more expensive than I would have liked, but they are worth it! 

Had his shirt made on Etsy. It was the first time I had ever ordered from Etsy. I know, I know, I must live under a rock! But, I am very happy with the shirt! I was a little nervous because I guess the way you do things on Etsy, is just put your description in the "note to seller" box?!?! I need specific instructions people. Like Line 1: Name, lol. So that part threw me off a bit !

He will hate me for this someday. I plan on him wearing the hat and the bow tie at the party.....but he won't keep the hat on for anything!

These are the centerpieces for the tables. My mom made them....not a very good pic so it's hard to see what's in them. Hats, gold coins, beads, that kinda stuff. This week I have to get the kids goodie bags done, and get Drew's first birthday pictures taken! With him being sick the WHOLE month of feb, I'm a little behind on that!

In honor of Drew turning 1 in a few weeks, he finally gets to see what we see in the car!
Yes, I'm aware that it is recommended these days that you keep babies rear facing in the car until age 2. Let me tell ya what.....that is near impossible! His legs were already hitting the back of the seat, and he won't be 1 for 2 weeks! So that's not happening. Say what you will.....this is safer for him! He can stretch his legs! And now he gets to watch movies with big brother!! :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!! I got new end tables, coffee table, and a sofa table!!! Hollla. Home tour coming some time this soon as my house is clean! haha!!!
