I’m lousy with my blog the last couple weeks.. Here’s what’s going on in our lives (or at least mine):
- Maria is on antibiotics for an ear infection again. Not sure if the first never went away or it’s totally different. She also has a new cold. She’s getting better.
- I am co-hosting a baby shower for Sarah this weekend. House needs to be cleaned magically in the next couple days! But I have some fun projects that I may reveal after the shower, so it doesn’t blow it for everyone!
- I started back on Weight Watchers.. only doing it online. I wasn’t good at lunch today. But at least Chad finished off the Apple Cinnamon Chip cookies for me!
- Started to think about Christmas shopping. Yikes! It’s that time of year!
- Chad found 2 dead mice in the garage on Monday when he moved the garbage bins. It’s that time of year too!
- Maria is getting close to sitting up. Sometimes she can do it, if she doesn’t move too much, else she loses her balance!
- She also squeals in a high pitched tone every time she sees herself in the mirror.
- Sarah is babysitting Maria tonight. Good practice for Sarah! 🙂
- I LOVE etsy.com! You can find anything out there! Wallets, purses, prints, calendars, Christmas ornaments, rugs… Definitely going to do some Christmas shopping there!
- Sarah also has me addicted to checking delight.com every day to see their featured product of the day.
- Chad wants me to make pecan pie next week for Thanksgiving. Anyone have any good pecan pie recipes?
- Project Runway starts tonight! Cool that we have Bravo HD now!
- I want to sew. I wish I didn’t have a job, so I could have time to sew! I wish my job was sewing for my own etsy shop. I have fabric for projects… now need time for projects!
- My house is always a mess… need time to clean! Need suggestions on how to find a housekeeper!
- I also want a Cricut machine… but seriously doubt I’d use it enough to justify the cost! Maybe if I had an etsy shop, I could sell things I cut on my Cricut machine?
- Anyone have any suggestions on what to get daycare provider for Christmas??
- Oh and I’ll be 34 tomorrow.. I think that’s officially the mid-30s. If you’ve known me for a while, you know that it’s weird that I haven’t been counting down the days or planning a party. No, I don’t plan my own birthday party for the gifts. It’s because I love to throw parties, so throwing my own birthday party is like a big present for myself! But honestly I’m more excited to be throwing a shower for Sarah then planning my own birthday party!
- That’s it for now unless you want my grocery list I’ve been constructing in my head!

Sounds like you have been very busy. Don’t worry about the house. Mine feels like it is always a mess too. 😦
I got CJ’s three teachers last year some hand lotion and antibacterial soap. They can always use that with all the kids running around. The year before that I got them some movie tickets.
Happy Birthday too!! I hope you have a great day!
Daycare Provider- I get her a free haircut from her stylist, add in a gift certificate for nearby coffee shop, restaurant… tell her to pamper herself for an afternoon. She enjoyed that gift.
