What She Wore Wednesday

We had a repeat today of this outfit She tried to spice it up by putting her shirt on backwards. That was corrected before she walked out the door. On another note Shrek has learned the art of blubbering. He thinks it's very funny to blubber on EVERYTHING! my first attempt at uploading a video! Hope it works for everyone... I have one of him blubbering on my leg as well, but I can't find it right now. Mr. Hubs and I will wake up in the middle of the night to hear Shrek blubbering on something in his crib and cracking up about it. Mr. Hubs is grossed out by the amount of drool blubbering produces.


I've been a little absent from the blog world recently. Last week was rough. I think if one more stress had come into my life last week I was going to run away. I don't handle stress well.   I may have mentioned that Diva was very sick a few weeks ago. Very sick. I took her to see Mr. Doctor and he said it was the RSV virus, but in older kids it acts more like a cold. He said to just watch the babies and make sure they do not have trouble breathing. forward a week and a half. Both boys started with runny noses and general crankiness. Then THE COUGH started. It was the worst sound I had ever heard. They started coughing all day and night. I don't handle stress well, but I handle no sleep even worse. We didn't sleep for days . However, me being who I am thought that I would wait a few days and see if the cough and snotty noses would clear themselves up. I grew up in a family that I remember going to see a doctor twice in my childhood.

What She Wore Wednesday

My oh my...Wednesday again. I'm convinced this child is destined for stardom. She thought she looked pretty hot this morning. I don't remember if the t-shirt came from Target or Old of the two. Leggings- Target Gold Sandals- Carter's Don't worry she wore a purple hoodie over it all when she left for school.


Mr. Hubs swears that since I quit my job that I have become more scatterbrained. I think it's true. I can't remember from one minute to the next what I was doing. I think the problem was that when I was working I was on the computer more frequently than I am now and could leave myself notes and reminders to do stuff. It doesn't work now. I've had a reminder on my calendar to call and get my dogs an appointment for a haircut since Monday. They still don't have an appointment. Maybe I should do that. Hold on...Okay, they have an appointment. One thing off my list. This week has gone much better than last week. I've even managed to feed the babies everyday this week (baby food). Diva is feeling better and so far Shrek and Donkey have not caught her disease. Sleeping has even gone a little better this week. The little pancakes haven't flipped themselves over as much  this week. Instead Shrek just lays in there talking to himself at 2:30 in the morning. I won

What She Wore- Yesterday

Obviously I didn't get this posted last night. I forgot to take a picture of her before she went to daycare. I did get a picture of her in her dance outfit. She thought she was hot stuff! Pretty sure it's all from Target. On another note. I went to Old Navy today. I heard a rumor they had some cute spring dresses. I played dress up with Shrek and Donkey while I was there. He wasn't too thrilled about it. He didn't mind. He also looks just like my father in law in this hat. 


Happy's been one of those  weeks. I am glad to be D.O.N.E. Today started off on a high note. I had good news last night about my dad. Yay. My mom talked to me yesterday. However, today she is back to not speaking to me. *Sigh* The little pancakes slept all night (after 2am- trust me that's progress) and didn't get up until 7:30!!! Whoo... Then things went down hill.  I had to be at court bright and early- yuck. It was the 3rd time for 2 different issues this week. Then my hearing today was passed--again. Boo.  Diva still had a fever this morning. We are on day 4. I thought there was some hope this afternoon. It seemed to have broken, but 2 hours later it was back up to 102. AAAAHHHH! Shrek has joined ranks with his sister and has a cough and runny nose. I'm expecting Donkey to join up soon. Donkey started screaming at 2:30 this afternoon and did not stop until bedtime. It was bad enough at one point I decided to put him in his bed to scream at his mo

What She Wore Wednesday

I can't make these things up...she is definitely creative. Jacket- H&M Dress- thrift store find Pink Shoes- Target (I think?) Red Socks- Target Bows- Hobby Lobby She was very proud of this outfit and was so excited to have her picture taken.

A Very Merry Unbirthday To You!

Oh my...those boys are 6 months old. It went really fast. It seems like just yesterday they were this size... I have to say over all that it's getting a little easier. I don't know if Mr. Hubs and I are just adjusting or it really is getting easier. The boys are happier these days. I am so thankful for that. This past Friday I loaded babies and 2 friends up in the swagger wagon and we took off to OKC for the day to have our hair done. Shrek and Donkey were perfect angels ALL DAY LONG!!! They slept a little in the car on the way up there but otherwise they were up all afternoon and never threw a fit or got upset about anything. It was AMAZING! These boys still take 3 naps a day and to go all afternoon without one is just unheard of. Today they went for their 6 month check up and shots . I hate that they have to have shots. But, I know that it keeps them healthy. I had Nana Karen go with us this morning. It is much easier to go to the doctor with an extra set of hands. Whew! It

A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

Well...Mr. Hubs has been at it again. We took Shrek and Donkeys' 6 month pictures yesterday. We (ha! Mr. Hubs) took these in the middle of our living room. I think he did a fantastic job! Owen aka "Donkey" Olivia aka "Diva" Carter aka "Shrek" Let me know what you think...

Thanksgiving Thursday

I haven't done one since January!! Thanksgiving Thursday is a time to be thankful for what you have in your life...even when you are having a really bad week, take a minute and reflect on the good.  Today I am thankful for... Thursday Laundry . I have 3 kids and a husband. There is a lot of laundry. I typically do it 2x a week. I like my "Thursday laundry" because I usually only have a few loads to wash and I can get it done pretty quickly. Dorky, but it makes me happy. My voice.  My family life has been in turmoil recently. I have had to discuss going to a nursing home with my parents. It didn't go well. Things were said on both parts. I am not someone who typically speaks her mind or stands up for herself because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I am thankful that in this situation I was able to speak my mind and say the difficult things that needed to be said. This resulted in my mother not speaking to me anymore, which hurts, but I am thankfu

What She Wore Wednesday

Two blogs in one day...I'm outta control! My pictures are a little blurry. I'm sure it's the computer's fault it couldn't be user error. The little Diva went somewhat normal today. The jeans are her "most favorite pretty pants." They are getting a little to snug. I don't know what will happen when we can't button them anymore! It will be a sad sad day around here. Pants and shirt: Children's Place Cowgirl Boots: Target Hair detangler: Target I Pod: Santa Claus (he's a sucker) She went normal looking for the day. Tonight when she was getting dressed for dance lessons she walked out of the room in Rainbow Bright striped tights and a black/purple starry leotard. I should have taken a picture of that! I convinced her to change. It was that bad.

The Dilemma of a M.O.M.

Ideally I try to go to the grocery store in the evenings after Mr. Hubs comes home and all three of the kids are in bed. Realistically I'm tired at night and it's easier to lug Shrek and Donkey to the stores so that we can do our errands in the day. This being said....I have a problem. When I have major shopping to do I will "wear" one baby and put the other one in the cart. When I have a small list I will put both boys in the cart, somehow. 1.) because it is a pain to take a baby out of the car seat and wrangle them into the carrier. 2.) they are HEAVY! Today we had to go to Sam's (we needed formula!) and then to Target to get a few things we had run out of. I'm really glad my lists were short because this is what I faced today.... Sam's Club Target Carts are not exactly made for multiples. It makes shopping difficult.  Where do I put my stuff!?

Old Friends Make The Best Friends

I have been blessed in my life to have a core group of girls that I have literally known since before Kindergarten. We have all gone our separate ways over the years, but have always managed to remain good friends and stay in touch. Facebook helps with this a lot! No matter the distance my love for these girls has never changed and when I get an opportunity to see one or more of them it is a Big Deal ! In January my friend Mitzi had a beautiful baby girl- Addie. Just in time for the Blizzard of 2011 and Oklahoma shut down. I have been DYING to meet Ms. Addie. But, due to life, twins and court I haven't been able to get my tail to Addie's house. Today Mitzi and Addie came to visit us! It was very exciting. I forgot babies came this small! Shrek decided to leave the group. Donkey had a crush. It was a really great day. Another friend even got to come over and see us for a little while on her lunch break. It was so much fun. I can't wait to do it again!
