A Typical Morning w/ Baby Boo-VIDEO

Some of our mornings start out...rough.

Since Baby Boo has never really learned the meaning of the word "sleep," we tend to get an earlier-than-i'd-prefer start to the day.

I often find myself trying to hold my eyes open as I scramble through old recorded episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, just so I can pull myself together...(Because there is nothing more awakening than hearing Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck having a conversation about choo choo trains and mouskadoodles.)

I used to wonder if our mornings "fit" into that typical every day schedule like other stay-at-home moms, and I often asked myself if I'm the norm...

or well...far from it.

But there is something that I have learned through out this whole mommy journey, and it's that no one is ever of the norm...

No one.

Sometimes we go to the mall and there are mommy's there who have taken showers and their clothes actually fit and match. My first thought it, "Oh Brother, look at me...I took a shower today. Nener nener nener. I'm the best mom ever!"

But as I have grown older, and the showers happened way less, I realize some things aren't just that important. (Ok...Although showers ARE important.)

My daughter's smile on her face brings more joy to me than anything.

Moral of the story: If you see me at the mall, run far far away...I'm stinky.

So for those mama's out there that want to feel a little bit more normal, and realize that some mornings our hair isn't going to be brushed, our clothes aren't going to be perfect, and we might just have to listen to Justin Bieber more than once to make it though the day...

It's all good! As long as you and your kiddos are smiling that's all that matters!

A Typical Morning w/ Baby Boo!

Hopefully you all feel a bit more normal now! :-)

Baby #2!

Ok so there are a few things that I haven't been discussing on the blog, and I was waiting for the right time to where I felt that I should share...

But I really have no patience, and figured I should let you in on a few things that have really been going on in our little family, since it has taken up a lot of time and energy. :-)

So here we go...

A few months(Beginning of November) back I was having some problems...I guess we could call them "female" problems. (this is the point where every male reading this is probably thinking they shouldn't...it's ok, I won't go into TOO much detail...I promise.) LOL.

I went to the doctor because I was a little concerned and the doctor immediately told me she believed I was...Pregnant.

Now, before I go on, you must know that I haven't been on birth control since Baby Boo was born. This was because I HATE birth control...My mood would switch from Satan to an Angel with in a matter of minutes. SECONDLY, I got pregnant with Baby Boo on birth control, so I figured I should probably try other methods.

Also, the hubby and I wanted to try for a baby starting at the END of November...So, when she told me she thought I was prego, well I knew she had to be wrong.

Well, I ended up taking a test right at the doctors office and turns out, it was negative.

I figured that would be the answer, but then I got kind of sad, which made me realize that I really did want to try for a baby. When I got home, I told the hubby that I thought the doctor was coo coo, and that even if I had been pregnant it was way to early to tell. The hubby kind of rolled his eyes, because every month I think I am pregnant...like every month. Am I the only one like this? Just me?

(Ok, we are almost there...Promise!)

So fast forward to three weeks later, it was like 8 at night. I was sitting on the couch, just focusing on my body, and I just felt that I needed to take a pregnancy test. The hubby had been doing something in the garage all night, so I decided to run to the grocery store, (I told the hubby I was going to get milk), and grabbed a test. When I got home I secretly ran upstairs to take it, making sure the hubby didn't notice. I knew that if he found out, he would think I was crazy...but I am not...I swear....

I patiently awaited the test results, and decided to find out what the hubby had been doing. When I opened the garage door, I found this:

He had got me a treadmill, and was setting it up! If you know me, then you know that for Months...years...decades...I have been begging the hubby for a treadmill. I think he finally gave into my nagging (or you could say, bitching) and lovingly got me one.

I was so happy...and then I realized I still had the test results waiting for me in my pocket, so when I reached down to check it, I saw this:

:-)

The hubby thought I was joking...I most certainly was not:

So there you have it...Our little family of three:

Will soon become FOUR!

Our little bundle of joy is due:

 August 7th, 2012

I am currently:

10 weeks pregnant

!!!!

I know that it is kind of soon to tell everyone, but this has really been a difficult pregnancy for me, and I was worried something would happen if I posted to soon...But this blog is my life, and I want to share this journey with everyone.

How am I feeling?

Yucky. When I was pregnant with Baby Boo, I didn't even feel pregnant. I was running, working out, eating pretty much anything, and I rarely had nausea.

With this pregnancy, I have been extremely weak, tired, nauseous, and sick. EVERY type of food sounds disgusting...this is no joke. That's why I haven't posted a lot of food recipes, because well, I haven't been cooking. On top of everything, I found out my blood pressure has been really low, 85/43, which explains my weakness. For a few weeks I couldn't even go on a walk without feeling like I was going to pass out. I have had to really increase my water, and even salt intake. But I have also noticed the little exercise I do may be hard at first, but I feel so much better afterwards.

It's been a difficult journey, especially trying to raise my beautiful/most energetic child in the world! :-)

But a journey full of blessings.

I appreciate your patience through out this time, and I am so grateful that many of you continued to support me even when I didn't post for like a month!! :-)

Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can now post my eats...my life...and well, somedays my view from the couch! With any pregnancy, it's truly a blessing, and I pray every day that I continue to be strong and healthy so I can grow a healthy and happy baby!

Have a wonderful start to your week! I am going to try and rummage through the fridge to find SOMETHING appealing...

Magnetic Makeup Board & Makeup Brush Holders

I'm going to sound like every other person on the planet and talk about how much I love Pinterest.

The idea of opening up a web page only to find food, clothes, home decor, crafts, DIY, handsome men, cute lil' babies, and lots of lots of pretty things...Weeeellll...

I'm not complaining.

If I could I would sew my whole families clothes, style my hair perfect, sport some hot smokey eyes, cook the most delicious dinners, have the most beautiful house, and take precious family photos. Most likely I would never sleep, not have time to enjoy that delicious dinner, and probably ignore/never see my family...

But, there are FAR more important things in life that I don't want to miss. So for now I'll do what I can, and settle for sweat pants, a messy ponytail, and beans and rice tonight for dinner.

So a while back In noticed (via pinterest) a magnetic makeup board from the website Liz Maria Blog. I instantly fell in love. (With the makeup board and the Website as well!!)

My makeup was super unorganized just thrown into a drawer, and my brushes were getting extremely dirty all mixed with everything. So when I saw the idea I knew I had to try it.

It was SUPER simple, and it cost me only a couple of dollars!

I started with a frame I had already. I had primed the frame white, then spray painted it yellow. Then I took some sand paper and rubbed a few spots here and there to give it some character.

I then rolled some rosette flowers made from burlap and doilies. Yes, doilies. I have about 692 of them in my garage from my grandpas house. I am determined to use them!

I then hot glued some burlap onto the original bored for the frame.

Next, I took my magnetic sheet (which I got at Lowes for $1.50!!) and hot glued some burlap over that.

I then glued the two boards together.

The magnet board was smaller than the frame backing, but it didn't bother me. I like the depth it gave to the frame.

Now comes the time to hot glue some magnets on the back on your makeup.

For smaller ones you only need one magnet, but for larger pieces you will need more.

Then you just stick it on!

P.S. Bobbi Brown liquid eyeliner is A-MA-ZING!

For my brushes I just used two candle holders that I had saved from when the hubby and I got married!

SEE! This teaches you to save and hoard EvErYtHiNg!  :-)

I cut out vinyl letters with my Cricut machine, one for my eye brushes and one for my face brushes. (I am also doing the same thing for my kitchen jars too!)

You could easily buy letter stickers and do the same thing.

Next, I filled each holder with a mixture of dry beans. (You KNOW I have tons of those sitting in my house!)

It really helps hold the brushes up right!

I seriously LOOVE this whole idea!

I love having such organization in my makeup, let alone SUCH easy cleanup!

Ok guys...you know what you gotta do now...

PIN It! :-)

Have a great day!

Drab to Diva Chandelier

I hate to admit it, but I'm growing up.

Even though I'm not as old as my husband, I would consider myself a mature adult. My choice of TV shows might scream others wise..And even my wardrobe. Trust me, if I could pull off a huge pink tutu like Baby Boo, I would totally sport it. I just don't think it would do wonders for my booty.

Mature people also use the word booty...often.

But I think the biggest mature part about me is the fact that my interest have changed. Before, I would have died if my parents made me walk into home decor stores, like pottery barn. Because I swear to cheese, if Billy from my 6th grade class saw me shopping at a LAMO store such as the "barn," instead of somewhere cool like Forever 21...

Now, I go specifically to the mall knowing that I am going to walk into home decor stores, and I get beyond happy when I see cute furniture and stylish pillows..

And holy watermelon, If there are cute plates...Clear the way! Of coarse I usually have to go by myself, because Hubby starts throwing tantrums.. "Babe, if my friends see me in this store, I will never hear the end of it..." But heck, if I need a new bra from Victoria Secret...

And sometimes I like to pretend that I can decorate.

6120589562_6d1fb41072_z
6120589562_6d1fb41072_z

I like to think that someday I'll make friends in this city I've lived in for the past couple months, and when I do they can come hang out at my pad.

And we can watch mature shows like Bachelor Pad and ABC Family...

Drab to Diva Chandelier 

This seriously was probably the easiest project I have ever done. It's super simple, and you can design it any way you would like.

To start off, I bought a cheap-o chandelier from a thrift store for $10.

6120043579_b62a38b9bc_z
6120043579_b62a38b9bc_z

It was kind of bent, and missing a lightbulb, but It worked perfectly!

First I sprayed it lightly with a primer, and then finished it off with white spray paint.

6120045273_32ef00c6b6_z
6120045273_32ef00c6b6_z

I didn't fully spray the chandelier, because like the rest of Baby Boo's room, (dresser and table), I liked the unfinished/vintage look.

If that's what you call it..maybe you call it crap, I dunno... :)

Then I hung little crystals that my mother-in-law had bought from Tai Pan..

6120047913_dd15cb3ea6_z
6120047913_dd15cb3ea6_z

You can still see some of the gold, but I promise..that was the look I was going for.. haha

This chandelier is for Baby Boo's room.

I promise someday I'll reveal all of Baby Boo's room, not just in little pieces.

I just have to finish the room first...and do laundry..and make dinner...

And shop at Pottery Barn.

See you tomorrow friends!! :)

Dresser Redo

Let's talk about style.

There is different looks, different themes, different era's, different patterns, different fittings, different everything..

Yet, certain people can take those different things and combine them together to create something beautiful.

That.Is.Not.Me.

I wear sweats 99.6% of my day..the other 4% is when I am in the shower.

My house looks like a preschool/messy restaurant kitchen/a messy cluttered teenage girl bedroom.

I'm really talking myself up here huh? My husband must be super lucky? What's that? You want to be my friend?

All joking aside, everything is true :)

But that's the life of a mom right?

Wrong!

You see there are SUPER cute stylish Mom's out there, who can pull themselves together, and manage to leave their amazingly decorated house looking adorable. Why can't I? I guess I am still in that phase..what's it called..Lazyness??

But I am gradually moving forward, and doing what I have to do to make my house, and myself presentable. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from blogs, (go figure lol), giving me that extra Ummph I need to get off my tushy and put effort into things.

For example, Recently I have really focused on my house. For some reason, I just FEEL better when it LOOKS better..although I cannot argue with the preschool look..

So this past weekend when Baby Boo was away, I finished a project that I had been meaning to do for a while but never had the time.

I turned this dresser that I got at a thrift store...

Into this:

For all I know this could be the fugliest dresser anyone has ever laid eyes on..

Work in progress folks.

Want to know how I did it?

It was actually super easy..So for those for those of you with crappy furniture lying around, don't be afraid to get creative. If I can do something like this...A caveman could do it :)

Dresser Re-Do: Drab to Diva

Start with a fugly dresser:

Remove all hard wear, and wipe down any dusty/dirty surfaces.

Then sand your dresser.

This may sound difficult, but I didn't go crazy with this step. I just sanded it down a little to give the paint something to stick too..

Next prime your furniture.

I use the brand KILZ primer Spray. It's fast and effective.

Once again I just primed the furniture lightly, (see below). Just so the paint would have something to stick to, since the look I was going for was a brownish white.

Next, paint your furniture.

I only did one coat of regular white paint. I didn't want it to be solid white, because of the look I was going for.

I love how I keep saying, "the look I was going for," like I know what I am talking about..

Next step, glaze your furniture.

For this I used a Faux Glaze from BEHR, and a sample of brown paint.

I basically poured a little bit of glaze(which is white-ish in color) in a bowl, then added a little brown paint to it, until I got the color brown I wanted.

Then with that mixture I painted on my newly white dresser...

EEEEEEEKK don't worry!!

Then take a damp towel, and wipe away the brown,

And leave a little bit behind so it's looks old.

The brown paint will also stick to the cracks, holes, and indents in the furniture making it look old and rustic...slightly dirty?

After you have finished glazing and everything is dry, put back all the hard wear on and assemble the dresser back together.

I was going to spray the handles, but I thought they went well with the rest of the dresser..

I was ALSO going to re-do the inside of the drawers, but the original lining seemed to go along too..

That, and I was too lazy..

Seems to be a re-occuring problem.

Here is the final project:

Pretty cool?

For now the plan is for this to be in Baby Boo's room. I just have to paint and redecorate in there, and then I, meaning Hubby, will bring it up.

SO at this rate, her room will be done by the time she is 45..

I seriously need to stop exaggerating.

Let's be real, maybe 14 years old?

Just a rough estimate though.

You may also remember THIS drawer from a previous post back:

I did the same thing that I did with the dresser, only using green spray paint, and I tinted the glaze black.

Oh, and I know your thinking that my smart lil brain came up with this all by my self..well, sadly no.

A MUCH MORE talented lady gave me inspiration.

Brooke from All Things Thrifty does AMAZING projects, and I am always OOing and AHHing over them. You should check her out FOR SURE :)

As for now, I am going to sit and watch Bachelorette, even though I have yet to unload the dish washer from yesterday.

Maybe because I am avoided the 67 dishes in the sink that need to go in it, or maybe because I am lazy.

I don't know..

I'm just a Diva.

Phyllo Butternut Squash Pockets

I wouldn't necessarily say I am thrifty.

In fact, I am the complete opposite...Unless of coarse Hubby is asking me, then I am very frugal, and always shop in the bargain/clearance section.

Ya right.

I wish I could say I could walk into a thrift store and find something worth buying, but..

I.Just.Can't.

And Probably the most thrify-ish shopping you will find me doing is at Ross or Marshalls.

But since I have been married, and Hubby has been in grad school, you can only imaging we are far from high-rollers. And even though Hubby would bet his life savings that I have it in my mind we are Bazillionaires, I am learning, key word, that I need to be better at how I spend my money.

Especially on groceries. Let's just say, if one looked at my grocery bill, then you could assume I was feeding a family of 5. yikes. AND, one might also assume, since I am really only feeding a family of 2 1/2, that by the cost of my purchases, we must be hefty eaters.

Not true. Well, hefty eaters, I dunno, I really...really..like food.

So where did it all go wrong? For some time now, I have really focused on my spending, and why I would end up spending so much on groceries. I thought, maybe I should share some tips on what not to do when buying groceries, because like I said, I am still learning on what to do.

The DEFINITELY DO NOTS of Grocery Shopping

1. Don't buy EVERYTHING organic.-I assumed that because it was organic, it was better for you. And although this is definitely the case in some regards, it is not the case in others. Here is how it goes: When buying organic fruits and veggies, follow the rules of the Dirty Dozen. ONLY the items on the dirty dozen list is best to be purchased organic. Items like pineapples and avocados don't. And trust me, the price of an organic avocado to a non organic one is a great difference. I also always buy dairy and meat for my Hubby organic. No questions asked. That will not change.

2. Don't buy everything you see.-I am like this in the grocery store: "I'll take that, and that, and that, and that. Oh wait, how much is it? OK here is my leg and my arm to cover the bill.."

I have learned that going with a list is crucial. At the beginning of the week I have written everything down that I want to make and want to have in the house. That way I go with a plan, instead of using my head/stomach to decide for me.

3. Don't get sucked into labels. -I will buy something if it says "Buy me, I am Delicious!", but for others, things like low fat, no sugar, healthy, brand new, yadda yadda can grab your attention. Research products out before spending a hefty penny on something they say is worth it.

4. Don't Covet-Being a blogger, I read tons of other blogs and get SUCKED into wanting to make what they posted RIGHT.THAT.VERY.SECOND. Alot of ingredients are unheard of, have to be ordered on line, and are pretty darn expensive. RESEARCH! I am not even going to mention some of the ingredients I have in my household that I purchased that I have NO idea what to do with them. Research recipes, research what the ingredients are for and their benefits.

5. Don't always shop at natural food stores. -There is this certain store by where I live that I call hell. If I walk in there, I am gonna get hell for it when I get home :) kidding, but I really have a hard time not spending Baby Boo's college fund in there. Certain things I agree are necessary, but not everything. AND a lot of times, the natural food grocers jack up their prices JUST because they can. Rude I know. Smart, but rude.

I hope some of these tips help you like they have been helping me...and my wallet.

And my relationship :)

But buying cheap only does so much for the Hubby. It's the delicious dinners that really win him over..

What a sucker..

Squash Pockets

Ingredients:

(filling)

1/4 large onion diced

1 TB EVOO

2 TB chopped garlic

1 cup spinach

1/2 cup chopped artichoke

2 cups diced butternut squash( i used precooked frozen butternut squash)-

1/4 cup diced walnuts

1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

salt and pepper

Thawed Phyllo dough

Directions:

1. In a heated pan, add EVOO, onion, and garlic and cook 4-5 minutes on med-low heat until they begin to caramelize. Stir Frequently. Then add spinach and stir every so often until spinach begins to wilt, about 3 minutes. Then add artichokes & squash and stir until combined. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and let cook about 6-7 minutes med heat. Stir frequently. Then add in walnuts. Season with more S & P to taste.

2. Prepare phyllo dough according to packages. I cut mine in half.

3. Place a couple spoon fulls of filling at the top of one side of the phyllo dough and add a few crumbles of goat cheese.

4. Fold Phyllo dough all the way down. I folded mine like you were folding up a flag.

5. Repeat steps until all the filling is used. I stuffed my pockets pretty full, so I only got about 5 or 6 pockets, so it all depends on the size. You can fold your pockets any way your want. There isn't a right way. Maybe there is, I just don't know about it :)

6. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until phyllo becomes golden brown.

I had never worked with phyllo dough until this. I have NO idea why I waited so long!?

Every crispy bite made me want to run out an buy more phyllo dough and make more!! hha

See what I mean. Impulse buyer anyone??

I hope Baby Boo doesn't turn out like me with the whole spending regards thing,

Because I don't know how many more arms and legs I can sell before I run out...

Grilled Lemony Dill Veggie Sandwhich

Dear Brain-

Where are you?

How come you always seem to disappear, especially when I need you the most?

How come you can't be there to remind me to turn off the hose on our sink...

Baby Boo's face is a perfect target..

Oh, and I'm really sick of the Wet T-Shirt games.

(You don't remind me about the hose, but you sure don't have a problem reminding me wet t-shirt contest are NOT for me)

Oh, and brain, while I have your attention, can you please remind me why I am so clumsy?

Because each time I spill formula, I am slowly saying goodbye to Baby Boo's college fund.

Bye Bye Harvard...

Hello Community College.

Oh, and one more question brain..

How come you never remind me to buy Dill?

Because Dill is delicious, and for some reason I always forget.

But not this time. I think I will clearly remember!

:)

Huge Vegetarian Burritos

***********************************************************************************

There is one thing that I have always despised about the Hubby.

It's not that he can put Baby Boo to sleep in a matter of seconds, where as it takes me an hour..

And despite that pissing me off, I don't despise him for it...I simply use love him more for it.

But there is one thing...one very important thing, that makes me angrier than if someone told me there would be no more chocolate in the world.

It's simply the fact of how he eats.

You see, in college when I was overly concerned about food, and would hide behind a couch if someone showed me carbs and told me to eat them, I learned that Hubby, who was BF at the time, could stomach anything. And when we would go out to dinner, he would down a "HUGH JASS" burrito no questions asked, all the while maintaining his sexy athletic figure. I would stare him down as I picked at my dressing-less bowl of lettuce, and wished bad things. Not so evil, but that maybe his BuTt would bubble out the next day from all the meaningless fat and calories he was eating. Needless to say my wishes never came true. =]

Ever since we have been married, I have come to the terms with the fact that some people are just lucky. They can eat whatever they want, and yet look like a champ. It simply is not a struggle for them. (AKA skinny mean girls in highschool =])

But I have learned that "looking thin" means nothing, but feeling healthy means everything. I'm not saying it's not ok to eat pizza, or have dessert. I mean, I do believe in, "living a little.." =] What I am saying is that, now, I simply don't have a desire to eat a whole large pizza from little "sleezers," because I know I will most likely feel like crap after I do.

I eat what I want, and what makes me feel better about my self...

And I feel a whole lot better when I eat one of these...
