Sunday Social

1. Did you sleepwalk as a child? Not that I know of.

2. Did you ever try to run away or sneak out of your house? No.I didn't have to.

3. Did you have any imaginary friends? I don't think so.

4. Did you ever go toilet papering? No. I never even knew people that actually did that. That's lame.

5. Did you ever sneak tv shows you weren't allowed to watch? Nope. I don't think I was banned from watching any.

Gosh I was boring!

-Had a mini date with Alan on Monday. We met at Barnes and Noble and had coffee. It felt so refreshing.
-Had more dental work done. One step closer to being done! I'm over it!
-I feel like M is ready to start potty training but I have no idea where to start. Is this a Peak or Pit?!
-I have lost 5 lbs and 1" in my belly since starting Killer Abs a couple of months ago!(3 days a week)

-Madison's naps have been all over the place. 2 naps one day, 1 the next. Goes down easy and naps, goes down easy then cries after 20 minutes of playing.

Our week in pictures

Someone enjoyed their pizza!

Love seeing horses in our neighborhood


Riding Wilma like a horse while holding a Princess wand.

A pro planker

1 of the 3 books I checked out yesterday. Was able to read a few pages before Madison woke up from her nap..

So what!

..if I'm thinking about pulling Madison out of Gymnastics. She doesn't really pay attention and I'm doing most of the work for her. All the other kids are pretty well behaved and listen and participate. She has to be forced.

..we watch Myrtle Manor. I can feel my brain cells dying watching it.

.. I still haven't started some kind of crafty hobby. I long to have a hobby but after Madison goes to bed, I just want to sit and do nothing.

 ..I love the Roomba commercial where they are doing the robot. 

What are you saying SO what! to this week?

Sunday Social

This is a weekly link up with varying questions :) Hope you like it and maybe you'll learn something!

1. What is your shopping weakness?
I have two. Finding Madison cute clothes and Goodwill. I spent over an hour at Goodwill last Sunday trying on roughly 30 dresses/skirts. I racked up for both me and Madison.

2. What is your food weakness?
Sweets. No matter how much I work out and complain that I hate my body, give me a Skor bar and I won't think twice before eating it. Let me see a cupcake shop and I have to get one(or three).

3. What is your go to movie to watch when nothing is on?
We don't own movies but if The Notebook or Sweet Home Alabama is on, I will watch it anytime.... And cry every.single.time

4. What is your go to breakfast food?
I usually eat oatmeal or cereal and coffee

5. Do you drink coffee? If so, how do you take it?
With 2 teaspoons of sugar(6packs) and enough milk so it looks like hot chocolate. So I guess I take very little coffee with my milk and sugar ;)

 I love having weeks with more Peaks than Pits :)

-Booked our photographer for Madison's party in September. Yep, I'm that crazy mom.
-Received Madison's Birthday Girl shirt that I won on Ebay. Told you I'm crazy....
-Planned a surprise for Alan for the week of our anniversary and I'm pretty excited about it :)
-Went to church again on Sunday and we liked it enough to keep going.
-Racked up on good deals at Goodwill and a consignment shop for both myself and Madison
-got my tooth pulled Wednesday. So glad that's over. I'd also like to have a pill form of that anesthesia, please. I don't remember much of anything and even after getting home was a blur. I slept like a rock.
-getting my other incisor bonded Monday to fill in the gap and hopefully fix my smile, finally!

-I'm not liking the partial I am wearing. They filled in the gap between my teeth with pink gum colored material and they didn't make it tall enough so when I smile be, my lip gets caught on the top of it.. I went to my dentist Thursday and he is fixing it Monday after it's healed a bit.
Week in photos
I took a ton of pictures this week. If you want to see them all, follow me HERE or go to our blog page and check them out on the right side of the page.

The shirt mentioned above :)

Working on a gallery wall leading up to the playroom. I'd like to add about 6-8 more frames.

Silly girl

She loves her jewelry, hat and Mickey/Minnie shirts

Finish the sentence linkup...

 1. I laughed so hard I cried when... Madison hysterically laughs at anything. It's SO funny!

2. My high school.. is a small school in a small town and nothing to write home about.

3. It really pisses me off...when people yell at their kids in public. Or even around other people. I'm talking yell, not scold. Like telling them to "shut up" or degrading them.

4. In ten years... I will be 42 and the mother of an 11 year old and married for 16 years. Holy.

5. If I could erase one'd be all of our bills? :)

6. In 1999... I was 19. I had just bought my first car. A brand new 1999 Honda Civic. I was so in love with that car. I kept it until 2007.

7. Honestly...I would rather eat sweets than real food. I have passed this trait to Madison too.

8. To me, all kinds of gross.  No thanks.

9. Someone really needs to invent...a silent dentist's drill.

10. The first time I drank alcohol... was when I was 15. Canadian Club and vodka and OJ. I didn't get a buzz. Sorry Mom! :)

11. The one question I would ask God I doing a good job? How are my friends and family? the lottery numbers? There's a lot of things!

12. Lindsay Lohan.. should be banned from being talked about.

  • .. if I watch Full House any time I see it on.
  • ...I ate 2 Skor bars Sunday.
  • ...I held up a dressing room for 30 minutes. I can't help I had a buggy full of stuff and they only allow 6 items at a time.
  • ..every time we go into a store, Madison automatically says "suckey" (sucker) and starts looking toward my purse.. someone is spoiled by eating suckers when we go out(it keeps her happy).
What are you saying SO WHAT! to?

-Met with a Moms playgroup Wednesday and may end up joining the group.

-2 of my plants have already died.

-Madison had a nightmare Monday night and ended up in our bed. Grinding her teeth.

I was one of the 830,281 people at Lowes on Friday buying flowers.

This child is obsessed with Fun Dip.

That moment you are ready for bed but you don't want to disturb the peaceful cats.
(this was before their appointment)

And another trip to Lowes to get more flowers, vegetables, sand, dirt and paint. Alan's is in the background painting Madison's growth chart board, which we have yet to put up.

The cutest little yard worker there ever was. This girl loves working in the yard and playing in the dirt!
How cute are toddler Crocs?

Pool fun

Our resort had an indoor pool so we wanted to let M try it out. She's never been in a big pool before. I had bought her this float and she loved the water. She hated the float after I got her out of it to swim free. She did not want back in it. She just wanted to kick and flail her arms. She also liked jumping off the side into the pool and climbing up and down the stairs.
