Merry Christmas everyone. I hope everyone stays safe and has a good time with friends and family. And don't forget to make sure the little ones know this time of year is for more than a bunch of gifts and toys. Its a time for charity and giving and I think when kids learn that they will be more grateful for everything they have.

So my husband and I have been together for almost nine years now. That's not that long when you compare it to 50 year marriages but its a long time for our generation. Well just recently I have been learning how to play call of duty with him. Again that doesn't seem like a big deal but if you knew my lack of coordination you would be surprised it find that I'm not spinning around stuck in a corner anymore. I'm improving. So we were playing until four in the morning the other day and it made me think. We do everything together normally and now we are adding call of duty to this. I brought it up to leif and asked him if we were blending together and becoming an even weirder couple that does everything together. His response was that it was a good thing. I picked up on call of duty and he picked up on reading books for fun. Not to mention we saw one Broadway play (wicked) and he was hooked. The next one I'm taking him to is the phantom of the opera, if it ever comes to town. But he doesn't think its odd that we are finally getting into each others interests so I guess I don't either. I just think its strange that it took nine years for me to learn a game he plays everyday.

Have you ever made a cheese ball. if you haven't I will let you in on a secret, they suck to make. I spent about an hour trying to work it all together with two spoons. That doesn't work. I kept thinking I needed to use my hands but I didn't want to fondle the thing so I grabbed the foil. It got a little better from there. I smushed the cream cheese one way between the two pieces of foil then crammed it back together and repeated the process. Totally not quick and easy. Next time i will remember to start with the foil to save about an hour. Any more tips for making a cheese ball in a timely manner would be greatly appreciated for my next attempt.

This time of year everyone has to remember to bundle up your little ones. That is unless you live in southern Georgia then make sure they are wearing play clothes because its the perfect outdoor weather here. It's December and we can still wear flip flops and shorts. Thats not right. We are having an ugly sweater party and its going to be too hot for it. Darn you mother nature. Lets hope it gets down to lite jacket weather soon so we are not burning up at our party.

So on black Friday I got nine things of Tupperware for 7 bucks a piece, now leif thinks I have too much now. He told me we didn't have enough room in our cabinets for them so we have to reorganize them all. Yay. Not really. But leif started moving everything around so my weird obsession would have a home. We moved our nice plates over to the Tupperware spot and our snacks switched with all of our candles ( leifs weird obsession) and now we have an empty cabinet. That seems odd but leif is such a good organizer that we have a lot of extra space. Looks like I need more Tupperware now.
Saturday, November 30, 2013
Finally put most of our important papers in the filing cabinet. It cleared out one drawer and two containers. And thays jist what I did yesterday. I still can breakdown four more boxes to get rid of them and make some room in our computer room. I even have a drawer for the stories that I'm writing. I found some old stories that I need to work on again. It feels good to be one step closer to organization.

Happy thanksgiving everyone. I hope everyone has a great day with their families today. We celebrated our thanksgiving already since we have to work. Cross your fingers that people are nice and leave early so we can go shopping. I hate that black Friday is now at 6pm on Thursday but I still want to go get Tupperware and blankets for a sweet sweet price. Everyone be safe and remember no deals are worth anyone's wellbeing. Also crazy people are everywhere so keep an eye out.

Thank goodness that we have new internet. We got it today and it is so much faster then the cable internet we had. We also got our first dvr. I'm already recording a lot of tv series. Leif is upset because all the recorded stuff will be mine because he watches sports amd there really is no reason to record a football game. What he doesn't know is that I'm recording all of the star wars for him this week and he will love that. Not to mention we will be able to watch the walking dead on Sunday even though we work. So excited

So while I caught up on some sleep this morning, leif was up and changed the oil in both of our cars. Thats freaking awesome. Now he gets to spend the rest of his day off with his mom and then playing basketball. I like that leif took care of that since I have to work all day. It was really nice not to have to worry about anything before work.
Thursday, November 21, 2013
So when my husband wants to read a book its so awesome. We read all day before work and now we are reading after work. He just felt the need to read last night. I finished a book yesterday and picked up the newest sookie book today. I like that we are both happy and it counts as couple time. I know it makes us nerds but reading wakes up your mind. I always feel smarter after I read any kind of book.
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
So I'm sitting here watching extreme couponing and every time I watch it I love the idea more and more. The lady today gave 3, 000 dollars to charity. Thays amazing. She got so much cat food for a local shelter. Just when I think all people suck little rays of sun shines right through. Not to mention that they pay like 6 bucks for a $700 load. This makes me want to do it so bad. Maybe one day soon but right now I'm too lazy to go out and find all of the coupons

Leif got his new PlayStation 4 at midnight on Thursday. He paid it off six months ago. We had to trade all of our games and old systems to get it. He loves it so far. He even made me a profile so I can stink it up on call of duty. My best game was 3 kills. It was nice. Leif said I got too loud but I don't think so. 3 kills is a big deal for me. I think I screamed and yelled I'm a beast but that doesnt seem like overkill to me. Either way he is happy with the ps4 so I'm happy with it. And I get to catch up on my reading so its a win win.

Yesterday we went to the shooting range and got to shoot our glock for the first time. I did really bad at first, then someone mentions that something about the back aim and I said oops I forgot there was a back aim. No wonder I did such a horrible job. So I tried again this time using both the front and the back things to aim and wouldn't you know I rock at shooting. The target was covered after that. I even shot a water bottle and made it go everywhere. Leif was a little upset that I did so well because we had a bet to see who did better and now he has to make lunch two days in a row.that sounds very nice. At least he knows he married the right person for when the zombies come.

We got leif a weight bench and now I'm using it. I feel fat and the weight bench doesn't take long to use and I feel it right away. It feels good. Lets hope it makes my arms look awesome and then leg thing on the bench is great too. I resisted so long trying to make leif not want a weight bench any longer but now I love it too. Funny how things work out.
Friday, November 8, 2013
Going to spend time with my sister and baby jackson today. Cant wait. Jackson is a good practice baby for us. I can hold him and then give him back when I'm done with him. Such a cute little baby. Boy do I really want one of my own. Hopefully not much longer for us.
Thursday, November 7, 2013
Trying my hand at making new things. My latest creation homemade mac and cheese with ham and bacon. Can you say delish. It turned out great. Leif really loved it. Lucky for him I made enough to freeze half to make another day. And lucky for me I have an easy meal just to pop in the oven. Man freezers are nice.

leif and i are both working on new projects. We got him a weight bench off Craig's list and I got a filling cabinet from goodwill. Both need work. They have a little rust on them so we are sanding them and he is painting his and duck taping mine. They will soon both look awesome.
I've got before and after pictures for leifs weights.

Happy Halloween everyone. Its my favorite holiday and I have to work on it. Not cool. Last year we had so much fun handing candy in our new house. This year we don't get to decorate or anything. But I'm not going to let this get me down tonight. I did my hair in braids and put spiders in it and I have spider earrings in. We might even have a little spooky get together after work. Lets hope the spiders get me good tips tonight. And remember to be safe and keep your little ones safe.

So I had another comment from a couple I wait on, thinking they know all about me and my husband just because they sit in my section. Do people not realize that servers are supposed to be nice to you and they don't act the way they normally would around people. Well this couple said that they don't see kids in mine and leifs future and I should just deal with it. Ummm where do you get off. We want kids so bad but we just want to be prepared for it. I don't think that translates into you guys aren't going to have kids. What part of preparing for children do they not understand. We are happily married,both have jobs, both have cars, and we pay all of our bills with savings in the bank. Does that sound like we are not going to have children. No it sounds like we are being responsible and getting all of our ducks in a row before we bring another life into this world. I guess planning for a baby seems weird to people but we want to be ready and for someone to tell me that we are not going to have any kids just because we want to make sure a kid won't bankrup us is wrong.

Baby jackson should be here on Tuesday. We can't wait. Tonight is going to be movie night with my sister on bed rest. Its going to be musicals. Not sure which ones yet but we will be singing all night and if any of you know how I sing we should pick up some ear plugs for everyone.
Wednesday, October 23, 2013
We have been looking for the right pillows for us for about a year now and we found them yesterday. We are both extra firm. We tried fluffy, down, memory foam and none of them let us sleep the way we wanted. This new extra firm is perfect we both slept like babies and it even stood up to buckeye on my head all night. I think his fat butt is why all the wimpy pillows gave out too fast.

So not to long ago my mom told me that kindergarten does not teach spelling anymore. They teach them to sound out every word and write down the letters they hear. And do you know what they don't correct them. If a kid writes love they luv. And that's okay in the state of Georgia. Even if a kid knows how to spell it right they don't teach it right. If they say that there should be an e at the end they are tell them they are right but then they get confused. How is that making the world a better place. so I have been upset about that for a while but then I think that the parents should help teach them how to spell right and I forget about it. But then today I found out that in middle school teachers are not allowed to check homework anymore. The kids don't know that but how is that helping them. They can give them a participation grade and that's it. And here is the kicker some parents get upset that their kids are failing because they are not turning in homework. Now correct me if I'm wrong but if all you have to do is turn something in, even if its wrong, to get a grade how can you blame the teacher when your lazy butt didn't check to see if they had homework. I don't know about schools now a days. I think my education failed me. Imagine if I would be in school now. I already suck at spelling, I couldn't image being any worse at it. But I guess I could be. It really is sad that the future of America is depending on spell check and finding the answers online.
Today I haven't gotten out of my pjs yet. It feels good. I guess we are still enjoying all the stuff you get to with no kids. Like lunch dates and sleeping in. We both know we are ready and now all we have to wait for is leif to get this job he wants or another one if its necessary. Lets hope he gets the one he wants. Either way our days without kids are numbered

So I wait tables and so does my husband. We pay our bills, we save money, we bought a house and we lobe each other. Now what gives some old man the right to not like my husband just because I'm married to him. The old guy is 87 and I wait on him maybe 3 times a month. I tell him how happy we are. Our plans for the future. But the last couple times he has come in he always says that I have a good head on my Shoulders and that when he leaves me alone with a baby I will be fine. What. Where did that come from. Leif thinks the dirty old man wants me for himself or that he is a feminist. I think that he just hates men or watches to many lifetime movies. Either way I'm not as nice to him anymore maybe he will find a new waitress to hate on their husband because I'm done with it

Once a week while leif works I hang out with my mom and sisters. Well this week its ladies night to the extreme. We are going on a casino boat for fun and gambling. I'm going with a 30 dollar limit and that includes the money to get in. It should be fun. We are going with some odd and new friends. Wish us luck.

Since we are not losing any weight because of our lazy eating habits, I found a butter solution then eating fast food. Freezer meals. I tried looking on pinterest but all the freezer meals were complicated and had stuff that we don't like in them, so I made up two of my own freezer meals.
Easy chicken pot pie
Cream of chicken and mushroom soup
Mix them all together and freeze. When you are ready to cook them thaw and place in baking dish. Add the bisquick on top and bake.
So easy and great for lazy cooks.
Easy chicken tacos or enchiladas
Mix together and freeze. When ready grab tortillas and sauce (taco or enchilada) thaw bag. saute to warm up for tacos or wrap in tortillas with cheese and sauce for enchiladas. Add your own extras, like avocados to the tacos or peppers to the enchiladas.
Both super fast and easy. Happy eating

My sister is having her baby shower today for baby jackson. So exciting. We made a diaper cake for her. Pictures to come later. In less than a month we will have our first boy in the family. Well my side anyways. Leifs side has all boys and my side has all girls. Everyone have a good day. Sorry it was short and sweet today.
Pictures from baby jacksons shower. With my sisters

I've been working on my book a lot lately and ive come to realize that creating and writing a story makes you lose track of time. I was writing one little tiny area of a chapter and it took 3 hours to finish, then I look back and it was only like 12 pages on paper so that's like five typed out. At least its all coming together, ideas are working well together and it seems to be fitting like puzzle pieces. I really love how supportive leif is being with this, maybe he just likes the free time he has to play grand theft auto. Oh well I feel productive.

With leif doing all this study for his test it got me thinking about what I could do to help out with financial stability. well I'm not really good at anything so not really sure what I could be. Then I remembered that I really like writing children and teen books. Normally I get like half a story done or one chapter then I get distracted. Maybe this time I will finish, I think I have a good stroy base and have a time line alreay worked out. Stay tune for more updates on it.

So again I know I don't have an inside voice but why do I say the weirdest things the loudest. Last time it was the astronaut hooker shoes, this time I said something like "nasty lesbian she-male". I think my words are just too colorful. At least I'm aware of it now before we have kids so I can tone it down before they are old enough to pick up on things. I think I just need to work on tastfully describing things rather then usung the first thing that pops into my mind. Maybe instead of astronaut hooker I could have said" futuristic woman of the night." Still gets the point acrossed without the did she just say that look. So where I used nasty lesbian she-male I should have said "unpleasant hermaphrodite with the bad hair cut". I think I still need to work on it but the first step is admitting you have a problem.
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Keep leif in your minds today, he has a big test that could get him a really good job. It would mean so much to him to do well today. Think happy happy thoughts for him and lets hope he does well. And don't worry if he doesn't do as well as he wants he can take a class and retake the test but lets hope for the best. I love him so much and I know he is smart and hard working and any company would be luck to have him but no one ask the wife for a reference.

So love all of the princess movies and when we have kids I want all of them. The thing is if we have boys can they still watch the girly movies? And if it bad that if we have girls I want them to like superheroes and football. Does it make them well rounded or just weird. I just don't want our kids to be cookie cutter kids. I want them to have great personalities from an early age. I didn't find my personality until high school and that sucked. Kids should know who they are and what they want to be early in life. If I knew who I was earlier maybe I could have gone to school for something I was passionate about and finished college. Now I know I want to write childrens books and I like numbers. That could have helped in 9th grade. Oh well. Our kids are going to have big dreams and we are going to do everything we can to get them headed in the right direction.

So babies. We both want one but can't bring ourselves to decide on trying yet. Its so funny that we both know we will be good parents and have plans set for affording kids but still we are gun shy. I think it has something to do with how happy we are together. Why mess with a good thing. But babies might not change that. You never know
Thursday, September 5, 2013
Oh what a joy it is for the nfl to start tonight. Leif has been so happy watching this game, loving that football is back. And what have I been doing, yelling at the tv for the fantasy football players to listen to me and stop catching the ball for my opponent's team. Apparently I'm really competitive and I didn't know it. And I eat when I'm stressed and didn't know that either. So far for the last half of the game I ate 2 hotdogs, 5 peices of chocolate, a whole plate of cottage cheese and two sodas. hopefully the season goes better than this game or else I will gain like 20 pounds.
Wednesday, September 4, 2013
So we had a normal day off today. Went and saw two movies since its five dollars before six oclock. After the city of bones and we're the millers we did a little walk around ross. Oh how we love ross. So many good deals. We didn't find any today but we cheered up a lady that was having a bad day. How you ask. Well ill tell you. We were wondering around the shoe rows and boy are there some crazy shoes at ross. I mean hookers would love some of these shoes. So leif was picking out crazy shoes for me to try on. Mind you we are all by ourselves in the size 6 1/2 row and I found this shiny silver high high heel with what looks like metal armor on the heels and toes. All I said was "man these look like they should be in an astronaut porn" then I tried them on. Well right after I take the shoe off a lady comes around the corner and said that she just wanted to come over and look at the astronaut porn shoes. She just kept laughing and said that it was the first time she smiled all day and then she thanked us for the laugh. After that I told leif I need to work on my inside voice so our off the wall sence of humour doesn't shock anyone else. Maybe its because we work in a restaurant but I forget that not everyone speaks their mind and jokes freely everday. That's why I love my husband. Its never boring and we laugh everyday.

We all know Facebook is full of drama. Some of the juiciest stories have been seen on Facebook. Everyone has those friends that over share and the friends that have full on drag out fights over comments. Well something dumb happened yesterday. One of my cousins posted a picture of her daughter using the big girl potty for the first time and one of her friends reported it as porn/nudity. Now I looked at the picture and nothing was showing and she was fully dressed. The odd thing is her page is friends only so it has to have been someone she knows. Now I don't have kids yet but I don't see anything wrong with a proud mom snapping a picture of a milestone in her daughter's life

So last night I told leif that we would start trying for babies and its like the universe says no. I had so many screaming kids at my tablea today. And if that wasn't enough a lazy mom let her kid run into the kitchen and fall and hit his head. What kind of bitch lets her kid get into harms way like that. Some people.

Our fantasy football draft went wonderful. My team rocks and leif is really happy with his. The clouds are in the sky keeping it cool in the house, since the ac is still broke. Leifs in a good mood. He gets to bata test one of his favorite game series tonight after work. We are getting better with the idea of babies. And by that I mean next month we will talk about it again. We just like being happy and we are going to have to get our minds around the fact that kids make you happier and more fulfilled.
Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Day three of eating right and we are doing okay. We mowed and weed eated. Man am I hot. And our ac has been broke since last sunday. The man looked at it today and said it might be awhile until it gets fixed. Yay for the hottest month of the year. At least we are sweating off pounds. Sticking to our all meat diet leif is making ribs tonight for our fantasy football draft. Wish we luck.
Sunday, August 11, 2013
I finally stepped on the scale and have had enough. Eating better starts today. We want shopping for good food . We are not eating any bread. So sad. I love bread. At least leif said I can still eat cheese. We think bread is why I can't lose weight and McDonald's is why he can't. So no fast food means saving money and not eating late at night means the food is not just sitting in our tummies. We are getting more comfortable with wanting to get pregnant but I told leif I want to lose weight before I get knocked up so I can be a cute pregnant lady and not an oh my god is she pregnant or just fat lady. Leif has us eating meat meat and more meat and I have us eating low low calorie snacks for cravings between meat and our next meat.
Friday, August 9, 2013
I've been doing a lot of thinking about kids and back to school shopping. Man, kids cost a lot of money. Every year you have to get them new clothes because they grow out of all of their old ones. I was thinking if we have girls you buy a bunch of accessories that they can mix and match with some basics every year. Like simple outfits with cute things to wear with everything. Every year they have more of a variety to match clothes up with. But what do you do with boys. They rip all their pants and stain all of the shirts. What is the boy version of accessories. All I can think of is switching their shoes up by buying different color laces for their basic colors. Not as cool as cute belts, bracelets, necklaces and headbands. I need help with ideas for boys.
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
Our dog buckeye is turning six on the 23rd and we are not really sure what to do for him yet. I'm thinking frozen apples in ice because he loves ice and green apples. Little puppy popsicles. He would love them. I hope our dog isn't too odd. Ice cubes and apples sound really lame but he loves them so much. If only leif and I loved apples and ice as much then maybe we wouldn't be so chubby
Saturday, August 3, 2013
So we still haven't sat down and had the talk, I think it will take a couple of weeks to get use to the idea of starting babies. For now we are enjoying all the things you can do without a baby. Like sleeping until noon or hopefully winning a trip to Disney world. I figure we will get use to the idea of babies between this month and next month. We can't put it off forever and we have a lot of money going into the baby fund that leif made us start so its only a matter of time
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
So july ends today and tomorrow brings August, the month we have been waiting for. Well the deadline that was fast approaching. How does someone get ready to make a baby. Do you talk about it ahead of time or do you bring it up in the moment to bring things crashing to a halt. We both know august starts tomorrow and we both said we would start trying in August but are we just going to flip a switch in our minds and try to make a baby. Babies would change everything. We are so happy together and everything just seems to flow nicely in our life, so how will we adjust everything to include a child or two ( twins run in leifs family). Ahhh. Which slogan do we follow. Nike's just do it or Guinness' good things come to those who wait.
Ps. It was so much fun looking up slogans. We did not know how dirty slogans sound when you say them out loud. Our favorite dirty ones-think dirty as you read them
Put a tiger in your tank.
Finger licking good.
Great taste less filling.
Splash it all over.
Monday, July 29, 2013
I have to work all day today but when I come home the Boston butt will be all done. I feel bad for leif because he is off all day and will smell it but not be able to eat it for hours. At least I will have work distracting me all night. Is it sad how happy food makes us. We are such fat kids. The best thing about it is I won't have to cook for like 3 days because of all of the leftovers.

So we have been trying to get back to exercising but have had little luck. We will work out one day and then a week later we will exercise again. I think our lack of effort has to do with being servers and having to walk on our feet all the time. I think we walk too much to feel like doing anything extra. And what sucks is that our bodies are use to it. Any person that sits behind a desk and then switches to waiting tables drops a ton of weight just because their bodies haven't been use to all the running around. One day we will find a routine that we both like and that works but until then I will take my cake and eat yours too.
Sunday, July 21, 2013
So my buddy miranda wants to learn how to bake and asked if I would help get her started. We picked a homemade cheesecake to try our hand at. Now I'm not the best baker and only really do cupcakes so this was a really big achievement. We started out rough trying to make homemade carmel.After failing at making carmel turn brown we started work on the cheesecake. It turned out perfect. Sadly we had to spilt in in half and then share with our husbands. But for her first shot at baking she picked something that wowed for sure.

So thinking about babies coming so soon I think I'm getting cold feet. First I was thinking lets wait until after we go on a trip to Disney. Now I'm thinking maybe we could wait until after my sisters wedding in March. But will I just keep pushing it back every time something fun is coming up. My mom said when she planned to have me she got pregnant right away and I think that is what has me worried. Like our first try we could have twins or something. Arent you supposed to work at it for awhile and that's what makes it fun. I just know that if we get pregnant right after we start trying we might not be ready. Does it make we selfish to want to get drunk at my little sisters wedding. I wasn't old enough to drink at my older sisters wedding and me and leif just kind of eloped so not really a big party there. I'm thinking its cold feet. I don't think any human looks forward to getting fat and not being able to drink for nine months but is it natural to keep wanting to push it back.

So I made this little video on my phone for a contest for work. Its less then a minute long but every time I tried to send it in an email it said it was too big. So I facebooked ( yes i just made facebook a verb) myself so I could pull it up on my computer. That went well so I tried to save it to my computer. That didn't work so I tried to make the link in the email. That didn't work too well either. Then leif uploaded it from my sd card straight onto the computer. So I'm thinking easy sailing from here. I go to attach it in yahoo email no luck. Its too big. Go to attach it in google email, too big. They both told me to load it through something else on their site and it would work. Wrong again. So I tried youtube. And it loaded. But then stopped at 83%. So now I'm mad because its less then a minute how is it too big for anything. So I'm on the phone with our wonderful on call nerd (Clint). Love him but he was stumped too. Finally we decided to try it on the laptop. After about ten minutes its loaded and sent. Dumb computer. I spent like four hours trying to get it done on the desktop. I still have no idea what I did wrong but I'm done with computers for the day.

You know those days when you feel you and your husband are meant to be because of how weird you are together, well today was one of those days. I was online buying work shoes from shoes for crews and I went hunting for a coupon. I found a 5% off and was pretty happy about it. Then the shipping comes up and was three times what I saved with my coupon so I went looking for free shipping. I never found the free shipping but I forgot my discount code so I had to find a new one. As luck would have it I stumbled across a 35% off code and leif started freaking out with joy and I was so proud I found the new code. This is where it gets good. Leif ordered a second pair of shoes for the new discount price and the shipping only went up a dollar. So now we have 3 pairs of shoes coming and we feel so good about saving. We fist bumped, high fived and even let out a woah or two. Now tell me that's not the oddest story about work shoes you've ever heard.

By now you all know that I like to budget and save money. I'm getting really good at it. Our friends are just starting out getting credit and beginning a life together so we are trying to give them helpful tips. Like start with a small credit card and pay it off every month. And put everything in the bank that you can when you can. If anyone has similar advice for them just let me know. Heck even other budget advice let me know for us too

This week was a little sad. We had 2 missing children in our area. One was found save and alive, the birth mother kidnapped her. The other was not a happy ended. This world is so awful. Who would want to hurt children. People make me sick. You can't trust people today. At least one of the kids survived. Its such a shame about the other one. Hold your kids tight and love them a bunch and never take them for granite

In order to put leifs mind at ease about having children we have taken on a roommate with plans on saving every penny for babies. Leif is feeling so good about this. Its our friend Daniel. He works in the daytime, we work at nighttime. Seems pretty perfect. Not to mention he is getting married sometime next year and wants to exercise with us. So now we have an in house work out buddy. I'm just gald Leif is getting excited about babies now.

Its getting so hot outside. Thats the upside and downside of living in Georgia. You love the summer for beaches, pool time, water parks, and playgrounds but then you get dressed to go to work and you have a wet spot on your back because your car was baking all day, not cool man. Lucky for kids they can just go play in the sprinklers all day long.

Okay so we are getting more comfortable talking about kids. Leif doesn't freak out anymore everytime we talk about it. Mostly because we already have a baby fund. All he needed was a plan so he would calm down. I still feel that the closer we get to a baby the more planning and freaking out there will be but what are the big worry items that future parents should plan for.

So I was at work last night trying to fix the stapler and ended up stapling one of my fingers all the way through. Yes I know that takes talent. It makes me wonder how accident prone our kids are going to be. Leif loves sports so he has had plenty of accidents and twisted ankles and I'm uncoordinated. Our kids are going to end up wrapped in bubbles.

The kids are all out of school down here and I'm pretty sure it has rained every day so far. Its important to keep the kids busy when it rains. Find something that they can use a lot of energy on so they can use so most of it. Twister will keep them up and moving. What are some more inside activities for kids to keep them using their imagination and energy.

So with kids come lots and lots of stains. I know what to clean carpet stains with and how to get out crayons and ink but gress on clothing has always been a mystery. But fear not a friend told be the secret. Baby powder. It worked amazing. If anyone has anymore stain secrets let me know

When you become a parent a little switch should flick on that says you have to take care of someone else. You would think that would include some form of common sense. I when to walmart yesterday and these people that don't know who to raise there children were everywhere. Kids walking with no shoes on. Kids walking around with no adult. Correct me if I'm wrong but little kids should not be on their own let alone not wearing shoes. Low and behold you always see the parents eventually, looking at something with all their might then yell for the kids to behave themselves from 3 rows over. Some people just shouldn't procreate

Last night we found out one of our friends is pregnant. She had a feeling but wasn't sure. So congrats to her and her man. Couldn't be happier for them. I guess we are at that age now where all of our friends are having little ones. It won't be long for us either. The time is getting closer

<p dir=ltr>Our garden is doing really well right now. Most of our squash was lost back when the rain wouldn't stop but we have more now and our zucchini is going crazy. The dumb birds kept going after our strawberries but I fixed that. After 6 scrapes making 2 cages they are now safe. The corn got a visit from buckeye today. He almost got away with jumping in the garden but his tail gave him away. He got tons of little corn hairs stuck in his mop of a tail. It won't be long until we are eating healthy from our very own garden and I can't wait.

With August sneaking around the corner really fast it has me feeling nervous and excited. We have the baby fund already to help put leifs mind at ease but what about mine. I wonder if i my mind will calm down or if I won't be calm until it happens. The clocks ticking and I want kids and I know the time is coming but its still scary as hell

I love the zoo. It was so much fun and hannah was great. She is a very easy going kid so she was prefect for leif to hang out with. He did good with her and had a good time. Now we are one step closer to leif feeling good about having a child soon. He still says August is when we will start trying but I don't think he realizes that its really close to August.

Finally we have a desktop again. I killed the last one watching gossip girl on Netflix. I guess all six seasons were just too much for our old computer to handle all in a row. Then I moved on with the laptop and I didn't have true feelings for it. There is just something about a laptop that I don't like for an everyday computer. So leif found me a new desktop that can handle my need to stream the whole series of things in less then a week. So excited and confused by the new computer. Windows 8 takes a little while to get use to

shoes that help others out are the skechers bobs. skechers bobs donate a pair of shoes to kids that need them. its good that they don't donate some random amount of money for face less kids, skechers bobs really give a kid a pair of shoes and I think that is just awesome.

Just got back into town an hour ago. The cruise was amazing. Turned my phone on this morning to see baby Nolan made it into the world on Wednesday. Both mommy and baby are doing very well. And speaking of babies. My lovely husband is all nerves because we planned to sit down and talk children when we got back. Looks like its time to make a choice. Do we wait or do we start now and by now I mean soon. Pictures of our trip and hopefully baby Nolan are soon to come

We have two ladies we know that are almost bursting at the seams. One ( baby Nolan) has about one week left, and baby Gavin is due in one month. With all these bundles of joy joining the world it gets me curious about dealing with a new born. Lucky for me I will have two families brains to pick on this manner. Some people suggest that you take a warm bath while you are pregnant right before bed so you get the little one awake and moving so when you go to bed the baby sleeps when you sleep. I guess this would have the new born on your sleep cycle. I'm sure that everything falls into place ones the little ones come into the world but it doesn't hurt to know people that have already done it and can help in so many ways

2. Clean stains left inside the crock pot.
3. Clean pet and child vomit from carpet or clothing- I’d try a test spot on any fabric before you use the Magic Eraser on it!
4. Remove grass stains from shoes after mowing the lawn.
5. Clean outdoor furniture and toys, like white resin, plastic toys or white painted furniture (but scrub lightly on the painted furniture!).
6. Clean pool liners.
7. Clean vinyl surfaces.
8. Clean your car’s hubcaps.
9. Clean the built-up gunk from inside of your refrigerator.
10. Clean the dishwasher interior.
11. Remove rust from most surfaces.
12. Clean your computer, including your keyboard, mouse and some even say your laptop itself! I’d go lightly as you wipe down these electronic pieces.
13. Clean your phone- try gently wiping down your phone’s mouthpiece to get rid of built-up grime.
14. Remove cooked-on stains in pots and pans.
15. Clean your sticky/dusty range hood over the stove. (What, yours isn’t sticky or dusty? Mhmm… well mine is! Ha!)
16. Remove nail polish spills or stains.
17. Clean your gutters.
18. Clean mirrors and windows- some say that the Magic Eraser gives them a streak-free and clean mirror! And it will apparently prevent your mirrors in the bathroom from steaming when you shower… hmmm.
19. Remove mildew from tents, vinyl canopies, awnings, fiberglass items, etc.
20. Remove paint over spray that has dried.
21. Remove food stains inside plastic food containers.
22. Remove fingerprints and dirt on light-colored kitchen cabinets.
23. Clean grout and tile (I have GOT to try this one for grout stains!).
24. Remove dried paint from door hinges.
25. Remove tarnish from silver.
26. Remove adhesive residue after removing stickers.
27. Remove hair dye from counter tops.
28. Clean plastic coolers inside and out.
29. Clean oven shelves and the grates on your grill.
30. Remove melted plastic from the side of the toaster oven.
31. Remove green algae from cement (such as bird baths, steps, ponds, etc.).
32. Remove toilet bowl rings- apparently you can simply cut off a piece of the Magic Eraser and let it sit in the toilet overnight to clean. Sounds easy enough to me!
33. Clean stained caulking along the kitchen sink and counter top- another must try!
34. Remove paint scratches on your car from minor fender benders.
35. Remove stains on the underside of the toilet seat.
