    Wonder where I’ve been?  Well, it’s been one of those weeks, AND I’m about to spill everything from this past week to you.  So sit back and grab a cup of coffee while I unload some rather boring life events. I’ll make this as painless as possible. Monday:  This was President’s Day and on this lovely day, I had the pleasure of babysitting my neighbor’s kid ALL day! My moody hormones can’t take it sometimes, lol.  But seriously…they were good. 😉   This was the day that Nate thought it would be a SUPERB idea to jump out of his tree house.  He sprained his right foot pretty good.  However,…

    Valentines Day

    Listen, I’m going to be completely honest with you guys.  I am not a fan of Valentines Day.   **Gasp** Seriously though, I like the cute decorations and the chocolate, but really…this holiday is somewhat re-donk-a-lous.  But…I have kids and a husband and with that comes a sense of duty to this holiday.   My husband isn’t a fan of this holiday either and my dislike for it gives him a free card, but he usually throws me a nice letter telling me how much he loves and appreciates me.  AND for that, I love him. ;D  I usually provide something small for him as well.  My husband likes to eat so…

    Preggo Potty Tales

    I’ve hit that stage in my pregnancy where I am totally over it!  I have so many complaints, but here is my number one complaint this week:  I have to use the bathroom ALL the TIME!!   I swear I have worn out a trail in the carpet and tiles from my constant trips to the restroom.  I also know where every bathroom is in every store we visit.  If you ever need to know where one is, just ask me.  😉 Today’s bathroom trip total: 2,119 times   Just to give you a visual, I made a chart thingy for ya. 😉   But really…I just had too much time on my…
