{10 Baby Names I Love But Will Never Use}

Every female I know has names they've stock piled as ones they would consider naming their kids. I usually kept my favorites quiet because the worst thing is being in love with a name, telling a friend, and having them use it on their kid! But since we're done having babies I thought why not share?. I think I have more girl names than boy though lol. Probably because I wanted a little girl so bad.
Lets get to it!

{3 Kids & The 16 Hour Drive}

If you know me at all, you know that the minute we booked our Disney World trip, I started planning the drive. For some, a 16 hour drive with three kids would be daunting and they wouldn't even dream of taking that bullet. But for me, the drive is half of the fun. And over the years, D has come around to that way of thinking as well. Besides that, I feel like if God had wanted me to fly he would have given me wings. Since I'm not currently an Angel or a bird, I'll keep my feet firmly planted on the ground lol.

{Another Trip?}

I know that it's super early to be posting about this but I am so excited!

There has been rumors going around that the Backstreet Boys would be doing a Las Vegas residency (like Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and J.Lo) but the other day it was confirmed!

Las Vegas (Sept. 23, 2016) – Confirming rumors swirling for months, the best-selling boy band of all time, with over 130 million albums sold worldwide, is heading to the Las Vegas Strip. This afternoon, the pop juggernaut Backstreet Boys announced they will begin an exclusive Las Vegas headlining residency show, “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life,” inside The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino beginning Wednesday, March 1, 2017. - Backstreet Boys official website

{The 2nd Wife}

I recently got into some hot water (I guess) after posting some old family pictures on Facebook. A family member got upset with the pictures when he saw that two (literally just two) included his ex-wife. The offending pictures did not just include his ex-wife (who, by the way, is a woman I grew up around), they also included their child and my grandpa. I did not tag her in the pictures or add her as a contributor to the album (which I did add everyone else in the pictures so that I wouldn't have to mess with approving a ridiculous amount of tags). The family member who was upset by the pictures said that I should think about how his current wife feels when everyone is always bringing up his ex-wife. Personally, I don't mention his ex-wife to his current wife. I have no reason to. I have also never been around anyone who did this, that doesn't mean it doesn't happen, just that I've never heard anyone do it.

{Another Project}

I feel like we keep starting projects around the house and nothing ever really gets completely finished. I started the bathroom but got to a stand still because there are things I can't do without doing other things that I can't do. It's insane. The upstairs still has studs but no dry wall. That has nothing to do with me because I don't know how to hang dry wall or run electricity through the walls we're putting up. So I'm basically waiting for D to decide he wants to finish it. He swears up and down that it'll get done when it gets cooler and he can't be outside anymore. Which makes no sense. He should finish it when it's warm out so he can open windows and let the place air out. But whatever.

{The Fur Kids!}

I love talking about my furbabies almost as much as I love talking about my kids. After all, they are my kids. So since it's been a while since I introduced my little fur heathens I thought I'd do this little post to show them off and maybe introduce new readers to my other babies. :)

I'll go from oldest to youngest since we have a damn herd of animals at this point.

{WiFi Woes & Pink Eye!}

Can we talk about how effing annoying it is to pay a ridiculous amount for WiFi only for it to kick you off constantly and not work unless you're in the same room as the modem?

That's what I've been dealing with for the last month now. It's been a huge headache. When we got into our router at first, we found devices logged on to our network that we didn't know what they were. So we got rid of those, changed all of our settings and all the passwords and even the username to our router. We went through and turned on each device in the house one by one to make sure that we knew what each one was. Then we had to block the other two devices. One of which was pulling more WiFi than all of our devices combined. It was pretty crazy.

{10 Fall DIY Decorations!}

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love fall! I love the colors and the weather and the ability to wear my hoodie without sweating to death. I also love the fall crafts! And I know it's not officially fall (next week!), but it's never to early to start planning how to make your house fall ready!

Now I am not a crafty person. I don't care how many times I try or what I'm attempting to make I always spend more money than I save doing it on my own. It's kind of annoying. But that doesn't mean I can't share some of the crafts I've come across that I think are cute! So here are a list of 10 of them.

{Our New Addition}

Let me just start by saying I am as shocked as you are that I'm making this post. For years I have said that I don't want any more pets. The two dogs and cat are sometimes more than I can or want to handle. D was in agreement. He went a step further and told me I could get another dog when Boss dies (which is never going to happen, so that's a no to a new puppy).

I guess someone decided I needed another pet though.

{My Kids Are So Gross!!}

I am so frustrated with my children. I just don't know what to do anymore. And it's more so the teenagers than Owen. Of course he does his fair share of dirtying up my house too.

When we moved into this house, we pretty much gave the whole upstairs to the kids. We put a toy room up there with a TV and the PS4. They have all their stuff up there so that I don't have to look at it all over my house. Even though it still ends up all over my house.

{I'm The Big Sister}

For those that might not be aware, I am a big sister.

I am the oldest of four kids.

{More School Supplies?}

I am so confused by the why the hell it is that this year we had a huge list of supplies for all three kids, then Gaige and Dawn go to school and end up with another list of supplies they need!
