Friday Randoms

  • It has been a CHILLY day here in Georgia. We were supposed to get some freezing rain/sleet this afternoon, but so far we haven’t gotten anything. I wish we’d get some snow. We keep getting the “threat” of it but nothing to show for it.
  • Today was a FABULOUS mail day. I got two rings I bought from 1saleaday.com, a bracelet purchased with my Fab.com credit, two Thirty-One orders (I cannot WAIT to use my new Inside-Out bag!) and a princess keyboard for Lucy. I got a great deal on it, so I snatched it up to put away for either her birthday or Christmas. She loves music. I have a feeling that in the future I’ll be looking for an affordable acoustic guitar.
  • Lucy had her first haircut today. She did great, and I – surprising – did not shed a tear. I have a post dedicated to that coming up soon.
  • My first Thirty-One home party is on Sunday! I’m both excited and nervous. I hope it goes well!
  • And now, I think I will go join my kiddo for a brief nap. Happy Friday!

A Day in Our Life

Today was a pretty relaxing day for us. I was going to make a Publix run this morning but decided I just felt like staying home instead. Want to know what we do on our days in? Check it out:

7:30 a.m. – Time to wake up! Lucy slept in, so this was a nice, “late” wake-up time.

8:00 a.m. – Lucy colors. I play on the Internet.

8:15 a.m. – Lucy plays in her room, eats breakfast and hangs out with Joe while he gets ready for work. I get some blog work done.

9:05 a.m. – It’s time to stamp! Are you ready? Break it down. (All you Yo Gabba fans should get that!)

IMAG1492
9:14 a.m. – Lucy is done and off to something else! Like chasing the cats around.

9:15 a.m. – Nail painting time!

IMAG1493
9:25 a.m. – Nails are done (I hate those stupid little nail jewels!). Now, it’s watch Tinkerbell while Mommy does some more blog work.

IMAG1494
(Are you getting tired yet? Because I sure am!)

10:17 a.m. – We’re puttering around the house. I’m watching Last Chance Kitchen from Top Chef and do some more blog work, and Lucy is playing with her Care Bears.

11:06 a.m. – At this point, we’ve done some snuggling, and I’ve squelched a tantrum over Lucy not being able to pull her PJ pants up while sitting on the couch. The littlest things set her off. Also, I am ready for a nap. Is it nap time yet??

IMAG1497
11:10 a.m. – Lunch time!

11:30 a.m. – Lunch is over, and Lucy is now running back-and-forth across the kitchen shouting, “Get mark, get set, go!” Time to shower and do the lunch dishes!

1:14 p.m. – More coloring time for Lucy while I work on plans for my upcoming Thirty-One party.

1:44 p.m. – Nap time!!!!

4:00 p.m. – Wake up and start getting ready for gymnastics.

4:30 p.m. – Leave for gymnastics.

5:00 p.m. – Gymnastics class starts. Hilarity ensues. Seriously. There’s nothing funnier than a bunch of 3-year-olds trying to do cartwheels and such.

5:30 p.m. – Leave gymnastics and head to dinner at Johnny’s New York Style Pizza.

IMAG1502
6:15 p.m. – Leave Johnny’s and head to Kmart to see what’s left in the Going-Out-Of-Business sale.

7:30 p.m. – Leave Kmart (a lot poorer) and head to Kroger, where Joe pumps my gas (love a man who will do that when it’s cold) and then heads home with Lucy while I grab a few things.

8:00 p.m. – Home. Finally.

8:30 p.m. – The day is over. Time to brush teeth, read stories and put Lucy to bed.

Week in Phone Pics ~ 3/52

Well, 2013 is just chugging along by. I’m enjoying sharing the pictures I take with my phone every week because, let’s face it, that’s how I take most of my pictures.

What did we do last week? We:

  • Had cheers with our drinks at Dunkin’ Donuts;
  • Did some snuggling on the couch;
  • Sang along to Dora Rocks with our karaoke machine;
  • Played princesses with AJ;
  • Went to gymnastics;
  • Made a Valentine’s mailbox;
  • Mommy’s head met her car, and the car won;
  • We dressed up in our clothes for Heaven in Sabbath School;
  • And there was some snuggling with Dizzy at bed time.

We also:

  • Sat with friends at church;
  • Went over to their house afterward for lunch and play time;
  • And, Daddy got Mommy’s favorite – Japanese – for dinner on Saturday night!

All-in-all, it was another good week! I’m looking forward to what this week has in store for us.

Sunday Confessions ~ 01/20


I’m linking up with Every Day is a New Adventure.

1. I am trying hard to be at peace with possibly only having one child, but I still feel stabs of jealousy when I see someone I know is pregnant. I wish I didn’t and could be completely happy for them but, well, I’m just not to that point yet. Darn infertility.

2. I love being a SAHM but some days my daughter drives me so crazy all I want to do is go back to working full time.

3. Last week after gymnastics, I totally let Lucy eat a donut before dinner.

4. I don’t want to send Lucy to preschool because it will mean she’s no longer my baby.

5. Related: Deep down, I’m really glad her birthday comes after the September deadline for kindergarten so Lucy won’t be able to start until she’s almost six.

‘What’s Under There?’

We went out to grab some pizza for dinner tonight. While Lucy and I were sitting at our table before we left, she pulled the top of my shirt out and said *very* loudly, “What’s under your shirt, Mommy?? What’s under there?? I want to see!”

I’m pretty glad the people at the table next to us were old and likely couldn’t hear her!

Week in Phone Pics ~ 2/52

Week in Phone Pics ~ 2/52
It was another fun week at our house!

We danced with Daddy and had a princess play date. We were amazed at the fact that it was warm enough to wear shorts, and we put lip gloss on Daddy.

There was stamping, “eating” with chopsticks and playing Chutes and Ladders. And, to end our week, we went to a birthday party for Lucy’s fiance and spent the day together, eventually enjoying dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Bahama Breeze.

I can’t wait to see what this week has in store for us!
