I Just Can't Get Enough....

Happy Monday!!

10 Things I Can't Get Enough Of

1. Chocolate. Addicted? Maybe.
2. Listening to my girls laugh.
3. Candles. We go through SO many, but I love a pretty smelling home.
4. Clean, cold sheets. Especially after a very busy summer day.
5. Diet Coke. 
6. A good show on Netflix/Hulu. Any recommendations? 
7. "Me" time. I love my time with my girls and nephew but nothing beats winding down for a few minutes alone. 
8. Salads. So yummy, so many options, so filling!
9. Family time. The evenings and weekends FLY by.
10.Good books. Finding lots of time to read lately, what do you recommend?

Let's Make a List.


1. What it's like to crave some alone time.
     I love my girls but a shower alone once in a while would be nice! 

2. The way a new cut & color can make you feel like a star.
     But what guy really can? I'm sure there are very few.

3. How hard meal planning/grocery shopping can be.
    It doesn't just happen, it takes a lot.

4. Why I won't go in somewhere looking the way I do some days.
     Seriously some days, WalMart isn't an option & I've seen some crazy stuff there.

5. How I can be so calm during labor. 

6. That at one point during they day the house was clean.

7. How two little girls can have so much attitude.
    It's just beginning though.

8. The joy of finding the perfect bra.

9. Why I am better at shopping for him than he is.

10. My love of chocolate and a nice TV drama.

Oh the Weekend.

With the weekend fast approaching and my computer FINALLY set up again. It is most definitely time for a blog post and what better way to start blogging than by doing one of my very favorite link ups. Perfect topic by the way. 


1. Big Breakfast. I don't know why but it seems like the weekends are the only time I'm interested in a big breakfast so we do just that every Saturday and Sunday morning. Pancakes or French toast. Eggs. Bacon. Sometimes a potato, egg, sausage scramble. Yum!

2. Shop. The girls and I tend to head out with my mom on Saturdays and shop. We mostly window shop but we love it!

3. Head out to lunch. Sames as above, the girls and I love heading to lunch with Nana before we go window shopping.

4. Visit Grandparents. They're busy people during the week. My grandma does bowling, an exercise class, or two and heads to church functions quite often. Wish I had that much energy.

5. Deep clean something. The only time the husband is home and has tons of extra hours during the day. If anything needs heavy lifting or there's a chance of spiders he's on it. 

6. Be lazy. Oh goodness, how I love to sleep in even 10 minutes on weekend mornings.

7. Watch movies. Friday nights = family nights. 

8. Destroy the house. Seems like when daddy is home the girls get into everything and nothing gets put back. 

9. Nice long drives. When its cold like it is right now nothing beats grabbing some coffee or hot chocolate and hitting the road looking at all the new houses they're building and day dreaming of all that we want in our "dream house". 

10. Pajama day.  Oh who am I kidding, this happens during the week too. It's nice to do it on the weekends when the husband is home. 

What are things you do or like to do during the weekend?

10 Beauty tools/products you can't live without.

1. Moisturizer. Helps start the look, even if that look is the "crazy tired mom" look.

2. Round brush. Love volume in my hair.
3. Foundation. Let's cover up the problems.
4. Mascara. Even if it's a no make up day, mascara is needed.
5. Some sort of hot tool (straightener, curling iron, wand)
6. Tweezers. Gotta always have 2 eyebrows.
7. Nail polish. Toes have to look cute.

Monday Listicles: Proud.


1. Myself for graduating from high school the traditional way. I am the first and only child out of 6 in my family to graduate high school! A few of the others have their GED or High School Diploma but through a different way, still proud of them for accomplishing that!

2. My daughter for using pretty good manners at just about 2! Please, thank you, no thank you, excuse me & bless you, are heard coming from her mouth quite often! 

3. My husband for getting his Bachelor's degree, he wasn't sure he wanted to but pushed through that and got it!

4. My home. It's not an amazing looking house, and it's not decorated amazingly either, but it feels like a home when you come in, and I love it.

5. Myself when I accomplish something. I tend to start something and not finish it, (oops!) so when I can check something off my list (even if it's little like cleaning out a closet) I'm happy for days!

6. My dad. He's always worked his hardest to provide for his family and deserves all the great blessings he's gotten and continues to receive!

7. My hair! Ha, I am slowly but surely growing it out! 

8. My blog, it's the longest I've kept a journal & though it's not perfect it's definitely a great way for me to save memories!

9. My marriage, it's definitely seen some rough times but it's survived!

I'm going to stop right here at 9! Those seem like just enough! 

What is something you are proud of?

Monday Listicles.

A List of Thanks

Thanks to my love  addiction to chocolate, I've gained......... & I'm not too happy about it.
            But, thanks to my husband for telling me I look great, I feel much better.

Thanks to my daughter's creativity, almost every wall & floor in my house has been drawn on.
            But, thanks to her creativity, I've learned my house doesn't have to be perfectly clean, it's   her area to create & learn.

Thanks to my in-laws & their accidental pregnancies & their pregnancy scares, I was starting to feel down about our TTC #2 & how long it might take.
            But, thanks to my beautiful daughter for all her snuggles & smiles, I know everything will                              be okay.

Thanks to the many bloggers & such that don't reply to emails/questions, I start to wonder about blogging & if I want to.
           But, thanks to the other bloggers I've found that do reply & answer questions & support others, I realized I shouldn't give up.

Thanks to my need to constantly do something, I've got projects every where around my house.
          But, thanks to that need, I've learned how to do so many things.

Thanks to the awesome Monday Listicles, I have become addicted to link-ups.
            But, thanks to the link-ups, I've found SO many awesome bloggers that I call friends.

Monday Listicles

I wasn't exactly sure what to write for this post, then I went to Sunday dinner at my Grandparent's house and it all magically came to me.

Things That Make Me Go Hmm
....Sunday Dinner....

1. My Uncle's ability to say something so stupid and inconsiderate, that I want to stab him with the nearest fork, and yet no one says anything to him. This time it was about the car accident my brother was in. 

2. My grandparent's need to put as much salt as possible on everything. I mean somethings are crunchy from how much salt is on the top.

3. The way dinner makes your stomach bubble and roll, as soon as you get on the freeway to head home. Their cooking is not for those with sensitive stomachs, our Sunday dinner group has narrowed down quite a bit due to sensitivity.

4. My cousin's way of making conversations so awkward that you find any excuse to leave the room.  He'll say something you don't need to reply to, then stare with his mouth open at you, almost like the words are right there waiting to come out, but they never do, they're just waiting for you to say something.

5. My cousin's ability to say "Hi Sara, how are you?", 3 different times to me within 20 minutes,  in 3 different rooms, and want a full response and the question asked to him. Acting like he's never asked me it, it's like, uhh hello? Do you not know we just talked?

6. My cousin changing her 4 year old's diaper, wait it gets better.... in the living room! Uhh, really?

7. My cousin not potty training her 2 year old even though he wants to be because her 4 year old doesn't want to be.  Uhh, if A is 4 and wearing a diaper and nothing has happened to cause this, (I do know some things cause this process to be drawn out) someone come find me and smack me!

8. My dad telling my nephew that seagulls eat people. Now this one will need a little story, C likes to ask 100 million questions to only a select few people, my dad, his dad, & me. While out working in the yard with my dad, and on question 1 million, he asked about the seagulls flying over and what they do. That's when my dad told him they eat people. Which C responded, "Do you think they saw us?!" , of course my dad got this straightened out, but really gotta wonder there.

9. My grandparent's having a 8 year old. Okay, so he's my older brother's boy, and my brother, his wife & daughter live in one of the basement apartments, but my nephew lives upstairs with my grandparent's, they don't have to do anything for him but it's still strange. 

10. My aunt's ability to have her pants hiked up so high, and being a different pattern from her top, that even I am uncomfortable for her, and it doesn't bother her. Uhh if my pants for whatever awful reason got that high, I would definitely definitely buy a new pair of pants or stick to skirts & dresses. NO ONE should have their pants up that high, there are certain things we don't want to see.
