Thurs Pics

Ignore the crazy looking mom. Look at Miss A's face, this is the only face she'd make for her daddy's good morning picture. She feels awful!
Shopping at the "Bee Store" for crafts with Nana.
And now she's redecorating her tree.
And some more redecorating.
And climbing. 

So glad she's feeling better. 

Award & 7 Things.

So... I got this award:


From Kayla over at Life is Simple, It's Just Not Easy, I just started following her blog, but I can already tell I love it! Check it out ladies, but first finish my post! 

The Rules

  • Thank the person who passed the award on to you.
  • List 7 things that people may not know about you.
  • Pass the award to 15 other bloggers and don't forget to notify them as well.  


The hard part is trying to pick 15 bloggers not chosen by others.



First things first, THANKS KAYLA! This is my very first award!


7 things you don't know about me.

1. I love shoes! I had over 200 pairs, I think I've gotten down to bout 150 now.almost 100 of them are heels, which I don't wear because I feel too tall when I wear them. I'm just about 5' 8", so with heels I'm anywhere from 5'10" to 5'11".

2. I have really bad hips. Like I'm not sure how many babies I'll be able to pop out before I'll need new hips. I was born with them out of place and they had to grind them in. So I pop and click and grind most days as I'm walking, it hurts pretty darn bad, but I can't complain, I'm still walking!

3. I love to crochet, sew, and do other crafts, like making bows! Which I'm sure you know about the bow making part! I do have a page for bow giveaway offer if you wanna check it out! Anyway, I really do love to be crafty, I just wish I had more time and more $$ to do it! 

4. I love to make bake! I really really want to learn how to decorate cakes! I started to last year, (teach myself) then I got pregnant and just dropped the hobby all together, I can't wait for the next year and round of birthdays to start so I can get back into it!

5.I  freak myself out a little too often. The tiniest thing can send me into a full on panic. One night I heard a noise in my house, almost sounded like footsteps ok it didn't it was just the house that was popping and creaking but I started thinking, "what if it there were someone in my house?!" "maybe I should have A sleep in bed with me so we can escape out my window if we need too",so I scooped her up and stuck her in bed with me. I try not to freak out, I pray and try and relax but it seems like more often than not my mind gets the best of me. I freak out about elevators, and you know those spots in the mall where you can look from the second floor to the bottom, yeah if someone is standing next to it or sticks there arm/leg in the bar, I about stop breathing, I can't walk by them, I can't look down them. 

6. I am the oldest of 5 children, biological children that is, I have 1 adopted brother D, and my parents almost adopted his older brother C, but he joined the Navy instead, but he's still my brother whether papers say it or not and I am the god-mother to his beautiful little girl Oreo.

7. I grew up in California. It was wonderful, but I'm so glad to be in Utah now. I couldn't imagine what life would be like if I lived in California still. I grew up near Sacramento, so I didn't have any warm beaches close by, but I have seen the ocean, unlike Utah people, who figure the Great Salt Lake, is like the beach & the ocean. I could smack them.

Alright onto the next rule, 15 bloggers! Ladies, if I mess up on your names or blog titles, forgive me, I'm hurrying while A sleeps! Oh and most of these women I just started following, I hope they will follow the rules and let us know more about them!

Forgiveness.

Why is that word so hard for me? Maybe it has something to do with the way my parents are. They don't do it very easily either. 

Forgiveness. 

Something we're supposed to do easily. I wish I was better at it. I still cringe (most times) at the thought of going to see my in-laws. My niece has her first birthday party this Saturday, and you know what, I don't want to go. No real surprise right? Well she is the daughter of SJ's sister Am, the one who majority of my problems with my in-laws are around. 

Back to my parents, see my dad is all about "don't trust anyone" yaddah yaddah blah blah blah. If you screw my dad over once, he'll remember it and just not trust you the next time. If you do something to my mom, she's all "that no good, bleepity bleepity bleep." She'll forgive you most times, but its not without the constant reminder of how you "done screwed her over". 

You know what that makes me. I'm the "don't trust any bleepity bleep, because they'll done screw ya over" type of person. I hold grudges. Like that SIL. She has made up lies about me & my brother Skipper. Well you know what?! I will not forgive "that no good, bleepity bleep!"  I "don't trust" her anymore, she "done screwed me over". Ya that's right. I move on and I don't bring it up... all the time...just whenever something reminds me of it. I know shame on me. I'm not going to be a very good example to Miss A. 

Truth is, I'm still hurt. I can't believe the things she's said to me, the lies she's told. I know I said one hurtful thing to her, but it could be taken either way really, but you know what?! I was hurt! I was completely pissed off! She's lucky I didn't stab her! Kidding. I only stab people in my head, and only the ones that really deserve it. I also can't forgive my BIL, when he told me I "only had a baby to fix" my marriage, I was about ready to puke. He doesn't know crap! He should probably be stabbed, mentally of course, too! I have never done anything to him. I don't really get too close to him because, I don't want to be hanging out with my husband's brother, just like my husband won't be hanging out with my sisters. 

See this post turned into something written in anger. I'm MAD! I wanted to try and write something, make myself feel better, maybe even turn over a new leaf. I don't know. I know you're probably thinking, go talk to them. I've tried. I really have. Even calmly. I've told them they've lied, they don't know what they're talking about. I'm past that. I need to find forgiveness, but where? 

Today I linked up with Shell, haven't linked up before? Check it out!

My Christmas List

I'm linking up with From Mrs. to Mama this month for her Tuesday Posts, and I hope you do too!


My Christmas List.


A new washer, something that isn't front load, but that isn't broken like the one here.



A new fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, these are all dying slowly and painfully at my house.



Clothes that fit my new mom body and with that being said it brings me to list item #4


A new mom body look, this one is awful!



A carpet cleaner.

A job that is closer by for SJ, driving about and hour and a half Tue-Fri for work is ridiculous.


Motivation for working out.


Motivation to get my Etsy shop up and running.


Any kind of decent relationship with my in-laws, I'm sick of it all, really.



Speaking of in-laws, I want to have the ability to forgive easily, I don't. 



I'm also posting up for Monday Listicle

Life's Lessons.


1. If you ask your husband to PLEASE help keep the house clean, it will go through one ear and out the other.
2. You will not only keep the house keep while wrangling your 9 month old, you will also be asked to watch your inconsistent daycare child on Saturday.
3. This daycare child is naughty. She is a tantrum throwing child with selective hearing and only three phrases.
4. You will here, "I did it" "I want it" & "I like it" all freakin' day long.
5. You will need to run to Ikea, which is an hour away, but you have to.
6. She will throw a fit in the store.
7. You will want to beat her.
8. You know it's just anger causing you to want to smack the kid for screaming for NO reason, but you know better. You just smile and tell her to knock it the heck off.
9. You will be told they will pick her up at 5, which turns to 6, without asking.
10. You will then be told you will get said demon child at 3:45 Monday morning.
11. You will be in bed by 8:30 with a perfectly clean house Sunday night.
12. 3:45 comes Monday morning and you'll be sitting in your kitchen, for 45 minutes.
13. After you finally crawl back in bed you'll get a text asking if you can get demon child at 8.
14. Sure, it's not like I wasn't up hours ago waiting for her. You'll agree.
15.She will again be a demon child. You just accept this and ignore her attitude.
16. When 5:15 comes and she's finally leaving, you will be so thankful she's gone.
17. You will then have to get yourself pretty, make some delicious Chocolate Cream Cheese cupcakes for your dinner party across the street. 
18. You will eat about 3 cupcakes and at least one of those was just pure batter before being cooked. 
19. You will now be happy & ready to meet a new family!
