Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

So Pumpkin Head, Hubbie and I had quite a busy weekend! Haddie is almost 19 months old and she was in her first wedding this weekend. She was a flower girl. This was quite stressful for me! I worried that she wouldn’t walk down the aisle or that she might cry. She surprised me though! She did such a great job! She walked in and was a little tentative at first. I was up front on the floor by the photographer with a rubber ducky (one of Pumpkin Head’s favorite) and she finally saw me. She gave a deep belly laugh and came running. It was adorable and everyone in the whole church laughed at how cute she was. She did so good and I was so proud of her! So was Hubbie! I took her out afterwards so she didn’t get too loud as she was in quite an energetic mood. After the wedding we had a night of worship at a farm of one of our church friends. He recently started a ministry called ISI Ministries. Needless to say Pumpkin Head had quite a busy day. She was quite tired and slept well Saturday night. On Sunday we had church and on Sunday night we also had church. We had quite a show from Pumpkin Head as she entertained the youth for sure with all her antics!

This week is going to be a little slower for us! Yeah!!! We are doing some “school” things. We are working on teeth brushing and art projects. Last week we made Grandparent’s Day cards for the grandparents and mailed them out! We are also working on some Brainy Baby DVD’s that teach about Music, Colors, Numbers (which she is totally not interested in right now!) and animals. She enjoys that, but right now she is a little young to get too much out of it. However, I think it is good to go on and get started πŸ˜€


I will leave you with a picture from the wedding so you can see how cute Pumpkin Head was! Hopefully I will be able to get some that the photographer took so that I will have some that look even better. Hope you all have a great week! Let me know what’s been going on with you guys…I would sure love to know!


Really??? Put up a sign!

So yesterday we had a birthday bash for the youth group. Pumpkin Head and I ran to our local dollar store to pick up some clothes pins for clothespin tag. While looking for them (which takes forever because they aren’t where I think they should be) and finally finding the right aisle, I with Pumpkin Head in my arms slide down and land on my butt! Now, why would I slide down you may be thinking? Well of course, it is because there is a HUGE spill in the aisle. Is there any sign saying “Caution. Wet Floor”? No of course not. My kiddo is screaming and does any store employee come over to check on us? Nope, now a fellow patron does to make sure we are ok, but that’s it. I get up to the register with my clothespins and I let the guy at the register (who just started helping at check out because there was such a long line) know that there needs to be a sign stating that the aisle is wet because I just fell and while I’m ok and so is my daughter she does have a scrape on her leg. He basically down played it and said that when he got time, he would put up a sign. I sure hope no elderly person slipped and fell because I think they would really hurt themselves.


Today, I decided to go to the companies website and write a message about what happened so that they would be aware. Thus far I have heard nothing in response to my note. I really do hope that no one else fell and hurt themselves. I also have no idea what I slipped in as I am not sure that it was strictly water. I am also super glad that I held tightly to Pumpkin Head so that she didn’t hurt herself worse. Other some bruising on her foot and leg and I also have a bruise and am sore, we are fine. She seems totally unaffected by it. I guess I am for the most part other than being frustrated with people that should be handling a situation better.


Has anything like this ever happened to you? What did you do?

Hello :D

So I’ve been gone for about a week πŸ™‚ I went to Mississippi with Pumpkin Head while Hubbie was at camp. Pumpkin Head and I had a great time in Mississippi. We went to the zoo (which was her first time) with my mom and my in-laws. We had a great time, though Pumpkin Head got EXTREMELY tired! Mom and I went shopping and had sushi (which now I am really wanting some!) I also got to see my cousin who I haven’t seen in roughly 10 years! That was a WONDERFUL thing! I’ve surely missed her. I went to a painting class with a friend of mine which was sooo much fun! I visited with family and enjoyed myself. Traveling is always stressful, but I was really glad that I had my aunt traveling with me.


Needless to say, after all that traveling my house isΒ  a wreck. It totally stresses me out, but I am trying to tackle it in my six daily tasks πŸ™‚ Here’s to hoping that by Saturday the den, kitchen and bathroom are presentable in case anyone comes over! And this week is grocery shopping week which is TOTALLY fun (please note the sarcasm). If you have any good recipes that you want to share, please do, I’m always looking for new fun things to cook! Oh yes, tomorrow is also book mobile day and while I am pumped about that, I’m also sad because I didn’t get to read at all while I was traveling 😦


The winner of my very first giveaway was very easy to determine as only 1 person entered. So yeah to Faith who won a snack bag from PlanetWise πŸ˜€ I hope you all have a great week and hopefully I will get back in to blogging at least 4 times a week πŸ™‚ We will see πŸ˜€ Have a great week and share some recipes in my comments πŸ˜€

I’m still here :)

I promise that I haven’t gone away! I’m still here! Due to the fact that we had the 4th last week, I spent some time with my family and then had to do some major cleaning!

I’m not sure how many of you out there have trouble with time management, but I promise I am one of the WORST! I really struggle to keep a schedule and stay on task! Hubbie works two jobs so that I can stay home with Pumpkin Head…and I really appreciate this! However, I am not always the best SAHM. I have a hard time trying to keep my house clean and keeping up with everything else. I have always been a big procrastinator, but I am really working on this!

I recently found a website…FlyLady…and it has helped me some. I am still really struggling. This week I am trying to stay on a schedule. I have assigned myself 6 tasks a day that range in the amount of time it will take to preform them (anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour). I am hoping that by keeping this list and having Hubbie keep me accountable, I will actually get some things done! I will let you guys know on Sunday how I did!

Two other notes for you all…I have a fellow blogger who is also a friend and she has started a blog that I love! She is really inspiring me to WANT to loose weight and to really try and make some changes to my diet. I have already started some of these changes that I want to do (such as adding more fruit and veggies into my diet). So if you have time check out her blog here and show her some love! She is amazing and inspirational!

And for the second and last note…if you find yourself using TONS of zippy bags like I do (I use them to pack Hubbie’s lunch and snacks for Pumpkin Head) then perhaps you will like this: PlanetWise Clear Snack Bags. I recently won one (it came in a cute dinosaur print with the clear window) and I realized that I needed some more. It would ultimately save me money over the long run so I ordered some last week. Once I get them all in, I will let you know how much I love them! Stay tuned for that πŸ˜€
