Things need to get done

I have been slacking, pouting and over all avoiding all the things. So it is time to put on my big girl panties and get it done.

  • Finish Ian’s registration for speech thearpy
  • Shower and get dressed
  • clean master bedroom
  • put away laundry
  • purge clothes
  • clean master bath
  • sweep
  • mop
  • other domain issue working on it.
  • vacuum
  • answer emails
  • pick up living room
  • purge stuff from Ian’s room
  • clean up Ollie’s room
  • bring in trash bins from street
  • clean out car Done
  • cook dinner (no cold cereal)
  • take a few minutes to read
  • use up the ripe bananas

The last is the most important to me with him working two jobs, when he gets a day off from one job we need to cherish the time we have together before we have an even longer period apart. I am going to get things done today.


I am linking up with Emily at Joyful Abode and her idea of
20 chore tuesday

What a week.

Baby's first ER visit

We started our week in the ER with Ollie who had the most nasty cough ever.

It is time.

Not only did he start out sick, he turned 9 months old this week. I can’t believe it, he has now been out as long as he was in.

Bubba get out of my car.

Sharing isn’t my best trait either Ollie, I am not gonna lie it doesn’t get any easier. Society doesn’t find fits like this as cute from an adult. I hope you and your brother grow up loving each other as much as you love to tease.


Letting my inner nerd shine with Abby and Gabe. We went to the comic book store where they were out of Wonder Woman coffee mugs and then to see The Avengers.

I am watching Dog, with the sniffles, and watching the clock. #widn @mamastrick, thanks for tagging me I never get tagged.

I finally kicked the nasty cold. A little trashy tv, the awesome vicks kleenex, and some cuddles made me feel so much better.

What I Wore Wednesday 2

Now, I am going to warn you that all my outfits but one are basically the same but with different accessories or configurations. That’s what happens when you go out of town with plans to spend one night and end up spending two. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the saturday night configuration of the outfit. It was by far my favorite with a black cardigan over the tank.

Running Errands before leaving town.
Necklace: Soleil Selene
Vest:Old Navy
Tank: Target (It is the Converse One Star Brand)
Belt: Wal-Mart
Jeans: Target
Watch: Fossil Outlet
I made a necklace change before leaving home friday night. This is basically the same look I rocked saturday night but with a black cardidgin and straight hair.
Necklace: Freecycle

Pardon the over edited picture, I am new at this whole self portrait thing. This was for my family members wedding saturday morning.
Necklace: Wishbone and Four-leaf clover(it was st patty’s day)from Treasured Charms
Dress: Target
Bracelet: Tiffany & Co.

This was saturday afternoon and coming home sunday.
Same as above all but the shoes: Steve Madden

So that is what you do when you don’t plan ahead when out of town. I wasn’t the only one without enough clothes, Ollie also ran out sunday morning. Luckily Nonnie had some extras that fit him. Yes it was just me and Ollie since Ian had his first soccer practice saturday morning.

I got Fancy

I am trying to make myself get up and get dressed more. I should qualify I mean more then just dressed, I want to do my hair and make up more. I am the queen of the comfy pants and messy hair. What am I talking about, I have messy hair most days. That’s what happens with natural curls. I was making headway in that department and then that bitch that is depression decided to stampede in like a heard of rabid toddlers. Well in the past week, I have done pretty good and managed to get dressed 4 days, what can I say the comfy pant habit is a hard one to break.

I started out last Thursday, I wanted to surprise C when he got home by being dressed. I somehow never manged to get make up on, oh well I gave it my best shot. Good thing I got dressed cause I got to escape for an hour by myself.

Flashback Friday

I was looking for a certain picture in my flickr stream and came across this gem. We were leaving a dinner with friends and were standing around talking in the parking lot, our friend decided it would be funny to put Ian in the newspaper machine. Somehow Ian thought it was a fun idea and went along with it. DSC_0079
