Friday Confessions.........

You guys thought I had confessed all in yesterdays poop post didn't you?

Not even close, I got more for you ladies.

After playgroup last night the house was such a mess and my cleaning people were out of town. I may or may not have searched craigslist and even emailed someone to come clean.

I kinda blame number one on the wine, or maybe it was the sob wasp that stung me upside my head. OMG that hurt y'all for real. I was pretty proud for not crying even though I really wanted too. 

After trying this precious bubble on Taylor, I decided she needed many more for fall. I may or may not have ordered 4 more.


I ran the bridge this week. Or should I say I was demanded to RUN. My girlfriend Alexis has been working-out kicking my ass this week, and has promised she will help me get my body back. All I got to say is my ass better look like Heidi Klum in a few weeks, if I am going to keep up this insanity. 

My laundry is out of control right now, it has gotten so bad I think I may leave it for another week.

That's all!! Have a great weekend!!!

On the Real.....

Seriously I have to tell you guys this story, one because it's life with kids and two I want to look back an laugh.

I am hosting playgroup today, and when this happens I at least try to get the dog-hair up. So I whip out my very expensive vacuum cleaner and go to town.

Half way through the bastard just cuts off, no warning nothing, just dead.

So I call Dyson. A little more than pissed off considering I've only had the thing 4 months.

Finally get someone on the phone, and my Lord you basically have to give them a background check just for them to troubleshoot the thing.

While on the phone I can hear Carson knocking on his door.(he is in his room having "rest time" by the way). This is not that unusual, so I just ignore him and keep giving the Dyson girl all my info.

A few minutes later he is still knocking, so still on the phone I open the door. Lord a mercy the smell, it almost knocked me over.

Picture this.... Carson with pants down to his knees shit everywhere, and I do mean everywhere. This is still not the best part he is  holding his sisters hair brush covered in shit as well.

I calmly ask the Dyson lady to hold on.

Carson immediately tells me with a very discouraged look. "Mom there was no toilet paper and you wouldn't come help me, and all I could find to wipe my butt with was Tay Tays brush".

All I could do was laugh, still on the phone may I add.

I nicely explained to the Dyson lady what was going on, and told her it may be a few minutes before I could fine the exact date I purchased my nice  piece of crap vacuum.

Yep, Life with kids. 

PS They could not fix it over the phone, so I should get a new one in seven days. Hope my company does not mind a little stank smell and dog hair.

Wednesday what I Have........

Today instead of the usual Wednesday what I want post, I decided to be thankful for the things I have.

Don't get me wrong this girl still has plenty of wants, pretty sure that's just human nature. But I also have a lot, and the things I am most thankful for money could never buy.

Look at the beautiful family I have. Man am I ever so thankful for them.

I am thankful to have two married healthy living parents.

I am thankful that I have clothes on my back and my childrens back.

I am thankful every day I have food on the table.

I am thankful for all the wonderful friends I have.

I am thankful for all YOU guys.

Yes today I am just going to count my blessing.


Happy Wednesday.

Fall Clothes for Baby Girl????

Okay all my beautiful fashionable readers, mama needs some help!

Y'all it went from hot to cool outside overnight round here.

You all know I get real serious when it comes to dressing my babies. But it looks as if I may be struggling for fall, when it comes to miss Taylor bean.

I love a bubble. Period.

Plus Taylor is seriously a peanut y'all. She is 5 months and weighs a total of  12lbs.

So the only bubbles I can find this year at a reasonable price are shimp and grit kids, and they only have like 3.

So baby girl mamas where do I need to shop, and not pay $75.00 for one outfit!!!

My current favorite from S&G.

The Weekend.........

I must say Todds birthday was quite fabulous! You know that amazing wife he has? Well she pulled off cupcakes, 2 presents, crab legs and steaks, and ended it all with wine and a bubble bath!

Score for her :) (no pun intended)

Daddy and his girl.

Saturday morning we hit up our 89th birthday party this year. Luckily it was a great pool party with bloody Marys, and Carsons favorite  
birthday girl Maggie.



Sunday of course came way too fast.
But we rocked it out with our first bow.
 and our first time in the swing.

The End.

Birthday Boy............


I know this will make you laugh honey, because I am a total attention Hog, and he knows it!

But on the real.

Happy Birthday to the greatest husband, father, and just all around Greatest man I know!!! And if you know my husband at all you would agree 100%. What can I say I am a lucky girl :)

Tonight we will celebrate Todd style. Which includes crab legs, rib-eyes, and corn on the cob. And lets don't forget a bottle of cheap red wine. He is just low maintenance like that.

I love you baby! 

PS Just to make you ladies a little more jealous he is totally handsome and buff too!!

See..........

What I want Wednesday..........

This Bedroom.


Can we say perfection! That monogram bed is just pure bliss!


These sheets for baby-girl.
There is not one thing serena and lily makes that I don't absolutely adore.
This blouse. My ever so fabulous friend Natalie has brought me over to the blouse side, and now I'am convinced I need to start a collection.

These Two..........





Have just been melting my heart lately. 

I do apologize for absence the last few days, but I have just been feeling like these two have needed a little extra mama time.

should I make the plunge?

So you ladies know I am not scared to spend a few dollars, especially if it's worth it!

So you tell me, is it?

I have had almost every pair of gym pants/shorts and tops on the market. But I have yet to take the plunge to get the ever so sought after Lucy and luluemon attire. 

Holy shit they are expensive! Again if yall tell me they are worth it, I will jump on them. ( you know I  am easily convinced like that).

But I need to know for-sure, before I go pissing Todd off next week, and spending my mans hard earned money.

Also which are your favorites of these brands or others??

I like the look of these the best!

Girlfriends......



So it hit me last night as I was loading up the dishwasher and thinking about my five things. I was thinking about my week and what I had planned, and Bam it hit me. MY GIRLFRIENDS!!! 



I seriously could not live without them! They are defiantly in my top five. I often think about how boring, lonely, and not near as fun life would be without my fabulous friends, and it makes me freaking sad!

I feel so blessed to have such a large circle of girlfriends, and not just any girlfriends, the good kind.

My Top 5..........

So after my woe is me post, I got a lot of sweet heartfelt comments and emails. They all made me feel so much better, and made me start to think I am pretty normal after all.

One in particular made me really think, thanks Julia for your inspiring words of wisdom. (she is one of those mamas who just really rocks my socks off, and who I totally adore). So I knew her advice would not steer me wrong.

She suggested to pick 5 things and just focus on those. So I have thought really long and hard about my top 5 things, and here they are.

God........ he has to be number one, and I have fallen short on letting him be lately. This is going to change.

My Husband........"Poor Todd" the famous quote from all my friends :) I really love this man more than life itself, but unfortunately he gets the short end of the stick most days. He is such an amazing person, and I really need to show him some love more often!  

My Kids........ they are soooo important to me, and at the end of the day I have to know that I am giving them my all. The days are long, but the years are short. I think about this often, and it really could not be more true. I never want to look back and wish I would have made them those cute cutout sandwiches instead of being clued to the computer. (that was just a funny example that popped on my head).

Cleaning...... Yes for me this is number 3. I just feel better when I have a clean organized home. It makes my entire day run so much more smoothly. I mean the dishes done, the laundry done, and all the beds made daily. This is a big one, and takes up a lot of my time, but for me it has to be done for my "happy me".

Fitness...... another time bugler for sure, but a must in my happiness. I just gotta get her done! You all know all the reasons for this one, no need to explain!!  

So have you ever thought about your top 5? If so I would love to know what they are :)

Confession Friday




My little man started mmo this week. It's going great, and he actually wanted to go back the next day, score! But man he is getting big, and its makes me a little sad.

I made a few updates in our half bath. I am loving the little changes.


My little peanut had to get three shots yesterday, and she has been pitiful ever since. 

She also received her first tutu, and lord have mercy she looks cute in it! 

I had bunco last night, and I hosted........this means everyone was crunked up! Because when I host I always make sure everyone has a full glass at all times, including myself. We made plans to hit up Trio in a few weeks and take a cab. I think all the "party like a rock-star" was bringing us back to the club days ;) That's what I love about theses girls. (and yall I am serious I am calling Bennie (cab driver) today).

Me before the party started.


Okay I am off kid free to lunch and shop with my mama friends! Xoxo HAppy Weekend!
