To my blogosphere friends...

I'm really sick of blogger right now.

Every time I try to comment on one of your blogs, I get booted off for some reason.

I'm still here, trying to *finish* a post, but having difficulty. Can you tell the last one was supposed to be about my allergies. I have no idea how I managed to get the ONE sentence up on the blog!

It sucks to type 280 words only to lose what you've done.'re little girl is absolutely ADORABLE, and, I have a hotsling that I would be glad to send you if you'd like it. You just need to go to the website: and see what you're size would be. Mine is a 4, and if that's what you's yours.

I'm still reading everyone, I just can't comment for some reason. SORRY!

Hobby Lobby

Have any of you ever been to this place?

Oh. My. Gosh!

Being in a new house that is in DESPERATE need of decorating and finding Hobby Lobby is pretty much the definition of bankruptcy!

This place has everything you could imagine to decorate your home. From mirrors to artwork, fake plants to furniture. To top it off, it feels like you're in the bargain basement because everything is marked 30% off!! 50% off!! It makes you feel like you're saving a TON even though you might not be. (It's all about how it makes you feel right?).

Every type of crafty neccesity is in the back from crayola to proffessional paints to markers and crayons.

The boys and I were all in HEAVEN!

So, about $100 lighter, we're home after our shopping spree. Colin is painting MONSTER trucks and I am about to break out my paints to create some "buggy" masterpieces for the boys' bathroom.

I'll have to post some pics when we're done.

Too bad Kelly came across a 40% off coupon TODAY.

I guess we'll just have to use it next time.

BWA ha ha ha ha!!!

Nope, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth

Sorry, to those few, few people who may still visit!

I'm still here...only a little sick myself these days. Whatever amazing Mommy immunity I managed to build up has failed me with the most recent wave of germs in our home. It's just a cold, but enough to make me feel like crap.

Landon is a runny-nosed mess, albeit a VERY CUTE one, and Colin is now following suit as well. My home now smells of vicks as I have every available outlet taken up with a Sudacare vapor plug. These, folks, are a miracle of modern medicine. If you've never tried them, do. Sleeping while congested is miserable, and these make it bearable.

I'm just sayin'.


I haven't walked on the treadmill for two days now, and I'm starting to feel like a slug. Being sick is my excuse, but that's over with as of tomorrow. I'm not giving up on myself just yet. This just means that I don't get the weekend off from working out, but I can handle it.

I've been consistently working out 5-6 days a week for a month now, and I'm really starting to notice a difference in my body. The scale says that I've lost about 4 pounds, but my clothes are fitting a LOT looser. I've even had a few people comment that they can see a difference. It's so nice to finally be seeing results!! I don't know if I'll get back to 109 pounds, but I'm definitely giving it my best shot!


So...that's the hole that I've been in lately.

My next post will probably involve my crazy ass idea of going to grad school some time in the near future. As if I don't have enough going on in my life. I'm still in the research stages of it, but I'm really hoping that it might become a reality. I'm ready to start investing some time and energy into Lori.....

Novel idea huh??

as in strep throat.

It seems like it never ends.

Weren't the boys sick just last week??

Colin is on his third antibiotic in about 3 weeks.


Luckily, we caught this early. I thought it was his ears because he had an infection at the beginning of April and maybe it just didn't get cleared up.

I just pray that no one else in the house gets it. That would be best case scenario, but it's not usually how things play out in this household.

I'm going to go buy some stock in Lysol tomorrow morning.

Catch you guys on the flip side!
