The Weekend (ER)

Positive for flu, RSV, early pneumonia in left lung and double ear infections with one ruptured (again). With TLC and lots of medicine she is doing much better, much better. We are going to an ENT next week to talk about tubes for her ears.

Oh ya, Nana turned 80!

My sister made the cake, snazzy right?

Sleepy Jingles

So rise and shine and give God the glory glory rise and shine and give God the glory glory rise and shine and.... give God the glory glory children of the Lord.

It's time to get up, it's time to get up, it's time to get up in the morning.

These are jingles we sang growing up, or my mom sang to us while trying her best to get my sister and I out of bed. I've always loved sleeping, a sleep-aholic if you will.

My baby girl loves to sleep too. I'm practicing the jingles for her.

So rise and shine...

TMI Tuesday (Late Edition)

I know it's a day late, sorry, but here we go!
I love mornings that Dustin gets to go in late.
I don't have an hour (+) to work out every evening but I am doing lunch time yoga on Thursdays. (it's only offered once a week)
I look at Avery's 7 month pictures every day.
My life is super busy lately and I feel that I am neglecting things and people.
I am trying to soften my sharp tongue and not be too honest all the time.
Avery is trying to crawl, seriously.
I made dry salmon and Dustin still ate it.
My hands are dry and I'm over the cold.
Today is my dad's birthday, Happy Birthday Dad!

Photoshot for 7 months

Avery's 7 Month Pictures

I hope you had a great weekend, we did!
Pictures, Shopping, Friends, Birthday Party and Cake!

There is a wagon going by and I am anxious to jump on (then I think of telling Dustin and the anxiety stops).
I feel that everyone around me, blogs, friends, family (see everyone!) is doing something to their home. This summer, while very pregnant, I decided to overhaul the living room furniture. One more piece, maybe two and I could call it done.
Our bathroom needs some TLC (maybe the guest one too), new curtains in our kitchen nook, de-cluttering (my favorite thing to do, seriously) the guest room/office/ tagging headquarters.

Must. Stop. Now.

Can we gush over this?

Swim and Shorts

Top 'O the Morning!
I'm searching for high waisted swim suits and shorts. Have you seen any? In my head I picture a khaki short with bow sash and cuffed legs. (paired with a white shirt) A swim suit, I'll take polka dots, solids, floral, whatever we can find.
Oh, it's not warm outside?
Well I will just be prepared for when it gets warm.

TMI Tuesday

I am wearing colored lip gloss, Dustin used to refer to this
as "Koolaid Lips"
Pattern Tights spruce up a black dress.
I may or may not be looking for 1st Birthday ideas already.
Dustin installed a "Big Girl" car seat over the weekend.
I saw swimsuits in the store and regret the cookies I had
on Friday.
I still haven't heard my test results, its nearly been 2
Our guest room/office is currently my tagging
headquarters. I'm selling (some of) my baby's clothes at consignment.
I haven't started couponing yet.
Avery is trying to crawl and has a tooth sneaking through.
We read about the "California Superstorm", have you?
The text alignment on the blog drives me bonkers.

So, this is TMI Tuesday. I think it could work.

Cabin Fever is starting to set in, well at least with Avery and me. Sure, I've gone to work for some time both today and yesterday but I'm used to doing way more than traveling between home and work. Avery likes to see people. For now, she only sees her daddy and me. Trust me, we are no fun.

I am hoping we make it to Atlanta Saturday for a trip to the Mart. Please thaw yourself out, Atl.

We are snowed in with nearly six inches of snow.

I love when things are organized and this morning the lack of organization in my closet made me loony. I just reorganized this thing last month.

Jackets, shirts by color, pants, skirts, party dresses, work dresses with shoes across the top. Shoes go from boots to heels to wedges and sandals/ flops.

Sweaters and takes are in bins below, jeans in a drawer.

Are you particular about your closet? I try to get Dustin to fall into a similar pattern (I'll help him hang his laundry more if I didnt get frustrated).

16 or so months ago, b4 pregnancy, I was much more organized.

I'm trying to make better of the situation and lighten up so...
We discovered we only had "baconaids" in our house.


Sorry, This post is less than chipper.

Several people ask if "You're having a good birthday." Yesterday there came a point where I stopped saying yes and started being honest. I'll spare you the drama and will say I dont want a pity party, just a prayer party. I had several spots removed and sent for testing yesterday.

We will hear back in 2 weeks.

All of the birthday wishes and multiple wardrobe changes made the day a little brighter, thank you! Oh and my DR got to play doctor by changing out the dressings, I am the DR's wife!

I fell in love with an old favorite all over again this morning. Non-fat white mocha. Seriously, it's better than I remember.

We have a *Bucks gift card. What other drinks should we try?

(I'm still assuming people are reading)

Oh, tomorrow is my birthday so I may or may not make it to a computer to post. Come back Thursday, I will.

Anyone still here? Sorry, I could give you excuses why I didnt blog but I wont.

It's 2011 and I'm baaaaaaaaaack!

I discovered my resolution last night, couponing. I always hear about the boo-koos of money people save by couponing but I've never had the patience for it. So this year, hopefully I can knock it out in January, I will be learning how to save us money which is just as good as making money. Right?

Do you clip coupons? I've heard of some helpful resources so far, but tell me what you do.

Happy 2011!!
