Weekend update...

This weekend has been crazy busy. So busy in fact, that I've hardly had a chance to relax.
Friday night was our typical Friday when the Mr. is on call. Surprisingly he didn't get called out. ::Smiley face::

Saturday little miss was up at the butt crack of dawn as she is everyday. 6am. It never fails. So I got up with her, gave her a little breakfast and we hung out for about 45 minutes before she decided she was just kidding and wanted to go back to bed. Fine by me. I got to go back to sleep from 7 to 8:30. I'd happily get up at 8:30am on the weekends. I'd welcome that with open arms. Anything has got to be better than 6!
Anyhow, I had to leave by 9:15, so I showered got ready, got the little one ready, kissed the hubs g'bye and headed out the door.
Dropped A off at 9:30 and made it to the salon by 9:50! My appointment was at 10! I had to get my roots done. Going blonde when you have naturally dark hair requires some serious upkeep; so every 6 weeks like clockwork I go see my girl who makes magic happen :)
After that, around 12ish I think, I headed to Ulta to get some conditioner for this damaged hair of mine. (And I needed to get a new comb since I broke mine combing through my wet hair a week before. Srsly)
Then is was off to pick up the babe, and head to the dealership where we bought our car, they needed to do something, take pictures? I have no idea really. Did that, got 2 miles down the road, and had to turn around and go back because they didn't get everything they needed. ::Eye roll::
When we finished there, we swung by Babies R us to pick up some inserts for her Dr. Brown's bottles.
FINALLY 6 hours after we left we got home. The Mr. had a super bad headache so we just kinda hung out for the rest of the night. (I went to bed around 9:45, because I'm cool like that)
I was hoping to go to a fashion show that I had VIP tickets to but had no one to go with. (That'll be changing soon though ;)  )  Had the Mr. not been on call, we definitely would have gone. Whatever.
Night 2 that he didn't get called out.

Today we skipped church :( We didn't want to be in the middle of the service and have to leave because he got called out! So it was his turn to get up with the babe, and I got to sleep in until 10am!!!!! It was amazing. Seriously. Amazing. That's love folks.
Got up, fed the babe, got ready went to the Audi dealership to get our oil changed, and wouldn't ya know it, they're closed on Sunday. I would have known this, but I thought my dear husband looked up their hours, I thought wrong. So we had 2 hours to kill before we had to be home. So we decided to go to Ikea. <3
We ended up getting a huge picture to put above our couch in the living room. It looks amazing. It was QUITE the adventure getting it from Ikea to our place though. It didn't fit in our car....but that's a whole other post in itself.
It looks great if I do say so myself.
We made it home just in time. We had a technician from Brighthouse scheduled to come between 3 and 5 to fix our DVR. Guess what time he showed up?! 4:59. I'm not exaggerating. He was here for about 20 minutes and fixed our problem. I am really starting to hate brighthouse. It's always something with them. Whatever.
That brings us to now, I've still got 2 loads of laundry to finish and a grumpy baby to put to bed.

Have a great week. :)

sad face

Can I just say how sad I am that Amy Winehouse died??

I loved her music.
Her voice was incredible.
Her channel on Pandora was always my favorite.

I mean, she's no Britney, but wow. I didn't think this would bother me so much (since we all knew this was inevitable) But I'm really bummed.

My plan for the weekend, is to drown myself in her music. Valerie, F*** me pumps (great song btw, youtube it) Rehab...sooooooo many!

R.I.P. Ms. Winehouse, I hope you're finally able to rest.

Oh hai.


I feel like I haven't blogged in months! GAH!

So, lets update, shall we......

This week was awesome. Worked regularly Monday & Tuesday, left work at 10 on Wednesday, and then worked regularly yesterday and today. This week flew by....

Maybe that's because I SAW BRITNEY SPEARS!!!!!!!!!! Yes I did, yes I did (somebody please tell him who the eff I is) saw Nicki Minaj too. Jealous? It was awesome. I'd upload some of my videos buuuuuut I'm kind of screaming like a crazy teen-aged fan  and I don't think you'd appreciate that. We had amazing seats, they were great, then we got upgraded to club level (vip bitches) after the chick sitting next to us barfed. Nope, I'm not lying, it really happened. Before Britney even came on stage! Luckily for her, otherwise I would have LOST MY MIND. I would have strangled her. But it all worked out. Yay for us. :)
Beer was $10 by the way. FOR ONE! One beer, and they had crappy not everyone likes bud light! clASSy.

Anyway, that day ranked up there with the likes of my wedding and the birth of my child <3

My kiddo also had her 9 month well baby check up!
Some stats.....
27in long
She also started crawling. FINALLY. I was worried she would skip straight to walking, but nope! We're mobile people! Move over!!

All in all, it's been a damn good week. I'd tell you more but I'm starving and dinner's here!!!

Things my kid is loving right now

Just in case you were wondering, or needed some ideas...



Earth's Best is awesome baby food!



She doesn't have that exact giraffe, but it's very similar.
She's not quite big enough to walk with the walker, but she loves playing with it!!

<3 Have a good weekend.

3 Day Weekend


On Thursday. The baby is sleeping (since she didn't nap much today) and the Mr. is working late.

All alone. It's quiet.

It's nice. It's not often I get time to myself.
So here I sit, blogging, thinking about dieting as my stomach growls, watching Teen Mom. One of the many shows the Mr refuses to watch....along with Pretty Little Liars, Secret Life, and 19 Kids and Counting. He absolutely HATES that show. I kinda dig it. Thank God for the DVR (and every other blessing in our lives!)

Tomorrow starts my 3 day weekend. I am beyond excited.
First thing in the morning I have a dentist appointment. I'm not going to tell you how long it's been since I've been to the dentist, because, well, it's shameful. (Don't worry, I brush and floss everyday! I'm not gross!)
I'm hoping that whatever treatment I need to have done can be done tomorrow so I wont have to worry about missing any more work than I already do. (Physical therapy 3 days a week thanks to our car accident)

Our nanny is going out of town for the next week and a half. So we are going to be using someone she recommended. She was the sitter for her youngest daughter. I met with her 3 times this week, and she interacts great with the baby, and the baby really seems to like her. And I fully trust our nanny and I know she wouldn't suggest someone she didn't trust. An added bonus, she will be coming to our house to keep the baby! I am really excited about this, 1) it gives me more time to sleep in the mornings and 2) the baby will be in her own environment and comfortable as she adjusts to a new person keeping her.
So she's going to come tomorrow while I go to the dentist! I'm so glad!

That's all I've planned so far for my 3 day weekend! The Mr is on call, so chances are, he will be working all weekend. Boo. I usually spend my Saturday cleaning and doing laundry, but I'll be doing that tomorrow after my appointment so my Saturday will be FREE!!! How exciting right?! What will I do, you ask? Probably nothing. That's what I've been doing lately. It's hard to spend time with friends when they don't have kids. And it's just our luck, that none of our friends have any. So we tend to exclude ourselves at times, or get excluded. But whatevs. Maybe the kiddo and I will do something fun?!

That's all for now! Hope you've enjoyed my ramblings.

Enjoy your Friday!! :)

Newborn again?

That's what it seemed like I had last night. Not an 8 month old baby who sleeps through the night for 11 hour stretches....oh no, a brand new little, bitty baby that wanted to be held and rocked. Heaven forbid you put her down. As soon as her head hit the sheets she'd wake up and start crying again. I definitely don't miss those never ending nights.

God willing it was a one night thing. I think she's about to get more teeth, maybe that's the culprit. She's been gnawing on her hand like there's no tomorrow and I've never seen so much drool!! So gross. We call her Special Agent Grosso. (Those of you with kids can appreciate that!)


We went to Ikea yesterday to look for ideas for a dining room table. Guess what?! We found one we liked, and we bought it! An added bonus, is was under our budget! WAY under our budget!
GRANĂ…S Table and 4 chairs, black, glass
This photo doesn't really do it justice. (thanks  Underneath the glass top there's a little shelf area (kind of) made of cute little squares (which match our decor!) I'm not going to use it for storing napkins or magazines like the description calls for, we're going to put some big, wide bowl and then maybe a bamboo plant on top of the glass..... we'll see.
The chairs however, neither the hubs or myself are a fan of. We bought gray cushions to put on them, which makes them look a little better, but as soon as we find some chairs we like, we'll be replacing them.


Not a whole lot happened this week/weekend. Cleaning, laundry, Ikea, grocery shopping today, and a little relaxing. We were going to check out a Church we were invited to by a colleague, but with the baby's sleepless night last night, we didn't quite make it. So, next Sunday it is.
And the weekend after that we'll be headed to Busch Gardens to spend the day with my dad and sister! I'm really excited because I haven't been in years. I think the last time the hubs and I went was 2006...? I'm not certain, but it's been a long time.
I'd also like to make it to the beach sometime soon, since we live....oh I don't know, half hour from the shore! I'm excited to take the little one since she's such a water baby already!

I hope you all have a safe and fantastic 4th!!
Enjoy your week!!

Oh, and one more thing.....17 days until BRITNEY SPEARS!!!!
