Cutting Loose........
















Today was just one of those days, you know those days when you feel like cutting loose and doing things that would normally make your toes curl and not in a good way ha! That's how I felt this morning I was already overwhelmed that I slept late and didn't get my shower on time, and well that just threw my whole day off schedule. So today I did not the make the beds gasp! I did not sweep the floor, I did not make Carson eat in his highchair, and I even let Rocky stay in most of the day (you know my Jack Russell that sheds really bad). then after dinner which my child did not eat........... I let him have Ice Cream :) and not vanilla O no that was way to clean for my messy day it was cookies and cream yummo!!!! As you can tell from the pictures above Carson was in Love. I am pretty sure this baby is hoping mommy cuts loose more often!

I got the itch.....







To organize my kitchen that is! Do you guys ever do this, just get an itch to re-organize cabinets, drawers, and anything thing else that is just over flowing with un-organization?? Well I do, it drives me crazy to open a cabinet and things fall out or open a drawer to find something and it takes 15 minutes to find what I need. So it was time, and I managed to do the entire kitchen before little man woke up from his nap :) Now my head is just spinning and I cant stop thinking about all of the other draws/cabinets that need some re-organizing!! While on the organizing kick I thought I would share some cute tags I had made for Carson closet. They turned out just perfect. and you should know by now I love a label!!

What a wonderful Thursday!

In his PJs this morning :)
being silly before his nap!




I am in a great mood! Today has been awesome :) I woke up to my little man chatting in his crib, and when I came to get him he gave me the biggest smile... I knew it would be a good one! The cleaning ladies arrived at 8:30 and off Carson and I went to run errands. We came home threw our swimsuits on and headed to the pool! I have such a water baby he loves it, and so do I! We came home ate lunch PB&J he got a little messy, so i decided a nice warm bath would probably help his nap last longer anyways :) I put him down at 12:00 and ran to my hair apt. that was at 12:30 I love getting my hair highlighted :) I called Todd to see if little man was still sleeping and he assured me like a baby ha! So I got a little shopping in!!! Came home to my very Clean house and my two men playing ball outside.......... Life is good, and tonight Todd and I are going on a date! Weee clean house, shopping, happy baby, and a date with my hubby that's what I call a good Thursday :)

Oreo Balls










I have to share this recipe with you guys they are delicious!!! I made them Tuesday night for a baby shower yes another baby shower!!! Do not drink the water here hehe! I am totally kidding I am so excited to have so many of my friends becoming mommies :)







What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
Make It
MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
How to Easily Dip Truffles
To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.



Last but not least get the cream cheese icing in the pack that you can squeeze out and drizzle over the top :)

Perfecton, Planning, and Anxiety

This pretty much sums up my brain at all times. I so badly struggle with perfection, obsessive planning, and anxiety. This may make some of you laugh, but I am being dead serious. most days is does not get to me, but its when things don't go as planned or go as fast as I would like them the anxiety kicks in. Its little things that i shouldn't even worry about, but I do! Let me give you some examples so you can follow..... Todds office/garage makeover. we are planning to turn our detached garage into Todds new office. There is a lot of work that will have to be done to get this ready, and I don't want to half a** it if you know what I mean! We have to get and AC unit in there, paint walls and floors, hang curtains, and all that great jazz :) Well I am freaking out and we are not even starting this until next summer! Next summer is our plan to start on baby number 2, and Todd as to be out of the house before i am making any more babies reason 1) I am not giving up our guest room, so the baby needs his office ha! reason 2 two babies in the house and my husband trying to make a living for our family.... not happening :) Carson already knows where "daddy works" and he knows how to distract daddy :) Any who my point is I cant stop thinking about this and its driving me crazy :) Also on the obsessive planning I already have my unborn childs nursery decorated completely in my head (we are not going to find out the sex next time so it will be all white awe Love!) Carsons second birthday almost done! The perfecting eeww..... I don't think you guys even want me to go there, trust me its bad! I want everything just the way I want it all the time especially my house!See what I mean my brain never stops I feel like can never relax and just let it all go!!! Sorry for the rambling, I would love any advice you guys have if any???

Conor and Jude are 2!!!

The beautiful birthday girl herself, I tried to get one of her twin brother Jude but he was not feeling it :)













I cant believe these beautiful twin babies are already 2! I remember the day they were born, and it def. doesn't seem like two years ago! Any who they had there party at Chuck E Cheese this year, and boy did Carson love this place! This was our first trip there, so we were not real sure how it would go. Well I don't think its any secret that my boy is obsessed with balls, so low and behold we were glued to the ski ball almost the whole time :) but that was fine by me, because it was so fun to watch him sling that ball every time. Todd and i were both amazed that he could actually get the ball all the way to the top! He also ended up friends with the big rat Chucky himself high fiving him and all! Happy Birthday Conor and Jude!

Friday Todd, Carson and I decided to head to the pool!!! We woke Carson up from his nap to tell Mimi bye (which we hated to do) both the wake up and telling Mimi bye. Mom and I had such a wonderful visit! We were able to do lunch twice baby free (bonus to a work from home husband) Shop, Shop, and shop, go to the movies, and take Carson to the pool :) I so wish my mom lived a little closer :( While we were out shopping Mimi bought Carson the cutest swim trunks! They were love at first sight for me! Yes I am one of those snob moms that goes weak in the knees over bubbles, jon jons, and anything seersucker! Sorry I cant help it, it just the way my brain is wired ha! So here are a few pics of my little man in his new trunks! Thanks Mimi we love you and miss you already!
