{Sister Time}

I cherish the times I get to spend with my little sister. Mainly because we are both moms and have lives and don't get much time to get together. So when we can make that time, its good :).
Today we went to the mall, Target, Ulta, and Farm & Fleet. The usual stops.

We met at Ross and walked around there. Purchased nothing because I couldn't find a wallet :(. I need a new one. OK. Need is not the correct word. I want another one, because I have an addiction to bags and wallets lol. I picked up a cute pink and white Steve Madden one (love SM!) but put it down and didn't buy it. I don't like to commit to things I'm not positive I love.

Our next stop was to the mall. We of course got their early. Story of my life. Of course it was also -1* out today (so sick of winter by the way!). We walked around the mall for about half an hour before the shops opened and then we were off!

{Sick kid = Moms Washing Sheets}

If you follow me on twitter or Facebook then you might have seen that I said Owen stayed home from school today..well, yesterday now. He was really lazy on Saturday and even ended up falling asleep on the couch, which he never does. At about midnight on Saturday he threw up...on our new bed.
Let me just say that if you have a memory foam mattress + kids, spring for the mattress pad. That extra bit of cash out of your pocket will save your mattress when you have a kid puking all over it.
OK, fast forward to Monday morning. He woke up complaining of a sore and scratchy throat. D looked and said he should probably stay home. So he did. He didn't really act sick though. Aside from not really eating too much, he was playing and running around the house. I figured he had tricked me! Wrong. So so wrong.

{I'm Not Selling Anything!}

Has anyone else noticed that the internet has become the new door to door salesman? But instead of having to turn off the lights and pretend like no one is home, you have block people on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or hide friends from your news feed because you get tired of them posting about wraps/shakes/candles/ect.
I understand that more and more people are attempting to make money online. Hell, I even had a go at making dog treats for a while. But come on. It's everywhere. My feed is flooded with people selling wraps right now. For a while it was Scentsy. They have become the new tupperware and Mary-Kay parties. Except now you don't have to leave the comfort of your home because they're mainly online it seems. At least that's what my notifications are telling me. I get more wrap party virtual invites than anything else.

{ #weightwatchers Weigh In Week 7}


I am so sick of this crap!! I have been back on weight watchers for 7 weeks and I'm gaining weight!! How is that even possible?? I'm going crazy.

And this weather isn't helping at all. I want so bad to get back in the gym but it's so damn cold that I don't even want to walk from the car to the building and back. It's very very frustrating. I love going to the gym. I love being in my own world there. But here I am, not going even though I want to.

I am aware that I need to just pick myself up and go, but I've got no motivation to do it when it's so cold and gross out.

I know what you're thinking, work out at home. I enjoy doing this also. What I don't enjoy is D sitting there watching me. He tends to tell me I'm not doing things right or makes it a competition. Which I don't want. I don't want to be judged. That's part of the reason I was scared to start at the gym in the first place.

I'm going to get this weight off. I am going to do this. Maybe I'll get lucky and the pounds will shed off once it gets warm. *sigh* I don't know.

I'm .8lb this week.

{New Bed = No Sleep}

Before D and I moved into this house we had a pillow top California King size bed. It was amazing. We both loved that bed. It was comfortable, we could sleep close if we wanted to or we could have our own space if we wanted to also. It was tall too, which I loved! So tall that when Owen was little I put a chest at the foot of the bed so that he could climb up and down on his own. It was amazing. When we bought this house we knew that the bedroom was going to be a problem. It's half the size of the bedroom in the trailer (which we believe used to be two rooms cause it was massive for a trailer) and D had purchased large furniture (a dresser with mirror on the top and a chest of drawers) when we weren't living together while I was pregnant with Owen. I knew the furniture would have to go eventually for us to get to keep the bed.

{Whats For Dinner?}

I have been on the hunt for new recipes for a long time. Even before I started weight watchers. Naturally the place I find myself most often looking for them is pinterest. And wouldn't you know it? I found some!

Tonight I'm trying out Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

I've got to say that I was pretty excited to try this one. I love lasagna. I don't get to have it as much as I'd like to because D doesn't like it. When I do it's the frozen kind from Kroger. Which I don't hate. 

I followed the directions and learned that sometimes you shouldn't lol.

{Adults Only Weekend!}

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Valentine's Day and spent it with someone you love. Be it a kid, a friend, or a significant other. 

As I posted before D got me a new laptop for Valentine's Day this year. So I wasn't expecting too much in the way of gifts on the actual day. In fact, I wasn't expecting anything more. He'd already spent so much on my laptop and I'm not greedy.

{Rambings While Waiting}

So I'm sitting here in the parking spots for the school and I just got the urge to blog! Not that I really have much to talk about. Everything is going pretty smooth around here.
Well, I shouldn't say that because as usual Dawn is giving us fits. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with this kid. I try so hard to keep my cool when I'm punishing her. I gave all of her Christmas gifts to her because she was being so good. I warned her that if her behavior reverted back to what it has been in the past that I would clean out her room. I can't handle any more of the BS. Everything was fine for 4 days. And then she got in trouble at school (and got another detention) for being disrespectful to her teacher. What happened was that she didn't want to do what her Social Studies teacher was wanting them to do. So she began making noises and after being asked repeatedly to stop she was told she could stop or go to the office. As she was walking out of the room she says to her teacher  "I didn't want to be here anyway". Yep. That happened.

{100 Questions No One Asks!}

I have absolutely no idea why I'm starting something like this at 11:30pm but I'm not quite ready for sleep yet. So I figure, why not? I found these on YouTube. Feel free to copy/paste and let me know you filled it out so I can read your answers too!

1:Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? The doors on my closer were those hideous sliding mirror doors from the 70's, so they needed to go. Not to mention I can't have that many mirrors pointed towards my bed at one time. It freaks me out.

2:Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel? If they're good yeah. But usually they suck. I bring my own shampoo also.

3:Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out? My flat sheet is tucked in the bottom but that's it.

4:Have you ever stolen a street sign before? No. 

5:Do you like to use post-it notes? No.

{ #weightwatchers Weigh In Week 4}

Uuuuugh!! I could literally kick myself in the face right now!! I am so mad. And the worst part is that there's no one to blame but me.

I had a gain of 2.2lb this week. I'm not quite sure what happened. I do know that I have been going over my daily points quite often and I snack late at night. So that's most likely the problem right there.

I also haven't been going to the gym like I should. Which annoys me but it seems like every single time I attempt to get back in the swing of going, something happens and my mornings are changed some how. Then I don't go. So I don't get my points from working out. You'd think I would be in there every day no matter what.

{Happy Valentines Day to Me!}

Yes. That is my brand new laptop! I've had the same laptop for about 8 years now. And as we all know, electronics have a shelf life of about a year, laptops probably 3 years. I've had mine 8. That means I've had it way too long lol. Not to mention it has been dropped, stepped on, attacked by viruses, and had drinks/food spilled on it. I've been debating about getting a new one for a while now but just didn't want to deal with the hassle.

{Another Dentist Trip #momlife }

We took all 3 kids to the dentist this morning. Was pretty happy with how it all went down.
Owen had to have another filling. The kid has bad teeth or something I don't know what the deal is. I brush his teeth myself. This one though was between the teeth. Blah. He did really well. I walked back with him and they did have to gas him. He wouldn't cooperate if they didn't cause he gets too nervous. But they didn't have to use the restraining blanket. So progress! There was no crying and he didn't fight anyone. He did really good! I was pretty proud of him!
