{Creepy Dude Knocking on my Door!}

Uuugh. What is it with this house that makes people think they should knock on the door at ungodly hours? So far this has happened three times. I'm beginning to think there's some kind of sign saying the girl living here probably won't shoot you so go ahead and knock. This sign needs to be changed immediately!

{ #weightwatchers Week 3}

I know I said I wasn't going to update every week, and I'm still not. But I thought I'd do a little update on where I am in case you don't follow me on Twitter or Instagram (which is where I post my weekly weigh in updates).

{What's on My Phone?}

I did this post a while back when I had my S3 but since I upgraded in November I figured I'd do another one! I love my new phone! I got the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and I do not regret it one bit! I wasn't sure if I was going to like it because I wasn't a fan of the no expandable storage but I like it so far. Especially since the Marshmallow update. I love that it's so much bigger than my last phone, so much easier to read on.

{AMA Trials!}

Gaige and D's dad have recently begun hanging out. Well, not really recently. He sort of stepped in when my grandpa passed and has taken Gaige under his wing. They spend a lot of time working on motorcycles and hanging out. R (D's dad) got Gaige an AMA (American Motorcycle Association) membership and signed him up to do trials for this Sunday (yesterday). Gaige was so excited about it! He loves to off road with D and his dad. I was a little apprehensive about it simply because Gaige isn't the competition type. And we are not those parents that force our kids to be in sports to participate in things they're not into. But I wasn't going to be the wet blanket. I will happily sit there in the heat to support Gaige in whatever activity he chooses to do. But I will never push him to do something he's not comfortable with.

{Take This Not That: Hospital Bag}

I think most of us have been in the position before. You're standing in your bedroom, belly so big you can't see your toes, empty over night bag sitting on your bed waiting to be filled. You've packed and repacked the diaper bag, it's been ready for a month now. But you're bag? You have no idea what to put in there. Should you take PJ's or wear the hospital gown the whole time? What about make up? Will you be feeling like putting that on? What about clothes to go home in? How much actual stuff do you even need? What's a waste of time to pack? I know I sat there on my bed for a while trying to figure out what was needed to take the second time around. The first time, there was no hospital bag. I had no idea what to put in one, I didn't even realize I needed one. I figured the hospital would supply me with everything I'd need. And they did for the most part. But it certainly would have made my stay easier if I would have known what to bring to be more comfortable. For my birth with Owen I knew what I'd need for the most part, but ever the over packer, I ended up taking way more than I actually used.

{Remember When I Wanted You to be Little Forever?}

I can remember the days passing by so fast that I begged them to stop. I wished so hard that I could slow things down, make you stay little for just a while longer. But with each passing day you got older. I dreaded the day you'd leave. The day I'd help you pack up your childhood room and move your things to your own apartment or to a college dorm.

{4 Things Every Breastfeeding Mom Needs!}


As most of anyone who knows me or follows me on any kind of social media is aware, I nursed/breastfed Owen until he was almost three years old. Something I am so glad I did! I loved every single second of it. Well, maybe not every second, the latch issues we had for the first month were pure hell and I thought several times about giving up and formula feeding right then. But I didn't. I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. *Sigh* I miss it to be honest. Not the first month, but definitely once we got it down, I miss that part. But I come across women all the time who are planning to breastfeed (for however long) that want to know what they should have that will make their lives easier while nursing. So I thought I'd put together a small list of the things that I could not live without.

{I'm a Binge Watcher}

When I signed up for Netflix again I had no idea what kind of door I was opening for myself. I love movies and I love TV and I have been through a bunch of them already.

I went through Switched at Birth first. I originally started watching it when it was in its first season on ABC Family. But I quit watching when we got rid of cable. So I have four seasons to get through! Yay for multiple seasons! I finished it pretty fast. But now I have to wait until June (I think) until the fifth season comes out.

{Stickerkid Review!}

A couple months ago I was approached by stickerkid.com to review their products. My first reaction was to check out the website and make sure it was actually legit (I've gotten similar emails that were just spam). Sure enough, it was a real business. A business with all kinds of cute labels! I love labels! So I emailed them back and said of course I'd love to do a review! I didn't hear anything back until a couple weeks ago when I messaged them from the website directly. The lady I spoke with was quick to get me into their affiliate program! I was pretty excited. I'm a pretty small blog and I've been trying to grow to get to the point where I could do something like this for a long time.

{Weight Watchers Again}

I've been thinking about rejoining weight watchers for a while but just haven't been able to justify the money. Then it hit me, I don't know when or why, I need to lose this weight. I need to be healthy. I need to fit into my clothes!

{Vacation Spots on my Bucket List}

D and I have recently been talking about what we plan on doing when he can retire/when the kids are finally out of the house. We both want to travel. Since we will only be in our 40's when Owen 18, we know we will still be young enough to do all the things we've had to put off because we just don't have the money for it right now. We figure that when we're done raising our kids, and we don't have to worry about buying their clothes and paying for lunches, that we will have tons more money to spend on ourselves and all of our dreams. And we have a few!

{Irrational Fears}

Everyone has them. Some people are scared of the dark, spiders, of being alone in a house at night. Some people are crazy. I'm not. I don't think my fear is that irrational really.

So I've hidden this pretty well since I was a kid. No one knew how bad my fear actually was until about three years ago. I had an actual freak out moment with D and Cassie (his daughter) in the car. There may actually still be video of it floating around the internet somewhere because Cassie thought it would be hilarious to record me. Pfft. Whatever.

{Don't Judge Me}

I have never been a mom that was so opinionated about everything that I would fight with people over why my parenting decisions were better than theirs. To be honest I think that's the dumbest thing I've ever seen go down in my life (now you call a dog a teacup and I'm ready to throw down..but that's a different story all together lol).

{That Time I Really Didn't Lie}

I was a good kid for the post part. I didn't really get into trouble. I didn't back talk or throw fits (my grandma loves to tell the story of how I didn't actually know how to throw a fit). I was quiet, I played with my Barbies and my magnet people, and basically kept to myself. This trend carried on into my teen years. That's when we finally got the internet in our house (yeah, I was like fifteen) and I discovered chat rooms (I stuck to mainly Yahoo! and Backstreet Boys website ones of course).

{Greetings from Grandma's House!}

Uuugh. Why must my appliances hate me so? I mean, I know I run them into the ground with my constant use but isn't that what they're made for? We just bought our drier (used cause we're poor) a few years ago. Yesterday when I was attempting to get some laundry done for the week ahead (since the kids return to school on Monday thank the lord), I noticed that it wasn't putting out any heat. Lovely. It was still putting out air though so I didn't really worry too much about it. I figured the heating element went out (just like our last drier) but that it would still dry them, it just wouldn't get warm.
