Finally... it's the weekend!!

I am exhausted!!  Thank goodness the weekend is here!!  It's almost sad... the girls are at their father's this weekend, and i welcomed it!  I just want to sleep. I need sleep... I can survive without sleep!! Sleep, Sleep, Sleep!!

Jenna has been waking up in the middle of the night with Nightmare's!  EVERY night lately!  So, she crawls into bed with us..and mommy gets zero space or sleep after!  I have GOT to come up with a solution.  I have tried going back to bed with her until she is asleep, reading, letting her watch TV.  It's not working!!  Any suggestions?!?!!?

In happier news... it's my Mother in Law's birthday!  I love my Mother in Law!  She's the best!  She loves me and my girls like one of her own.. and treats us all SO good!!  She is coming into town for the night, and we are taking her to some flea markets and having a cookout tonight! :)  Super fun!!

Have a great weekend everyone! :) Sorry for my lack of blogging!!

Always a Little Behind Crafts review and giveaway! :)

I had the chance the review the CUTEST crayon wallet from Always a Little Behind Crafts!  What an ingenious idea!!  As much as we travel on the weekends... the Wallet has been SO much fun for my girls!! 

The Crayon Wallet opens up, and can hold crayons or colored pencils, a small notepad and stickers!! 

My girls are always spilling crayons out of the box on trips, so this was PERFECT!! (We chose the one's with pencils) and they stayed in place perfectly!!  My girls created masterpieces, on our last trip!! :)  It would also be perfect to slip in a diaper bag to use as returaunts!!  ;)

The craftmanship rocks as well!

Check our her Etsy store Here 

I think it would be perfect as a Christmas gift!  I am ordering 2 more for my niece and nephew!!

My girls give it 2 thumbs up!!

New week!!

I start work full time this week!  I'm sad that I have to put the girls in afterschool care, but our family will benefit in the long run!  So... I have had ZERO time to blog after being away for the weekend!!  Hopefully soon, I will find my "Blog Groove" and learn to balance everything!  This week will be the test for sure!!

Thanks for being patient with me!!  My family comes first, and I am spending the day with my grandparents and J & A!  I can't wait!!

Wordless Wed

Every year, Bug's family goes to Hardy Arkansas, to the Spring River, to camp for a week.  A few years ago, we took the girls for the first time... and they had SO much fun!  This is a family pic, of most of the kids that went with us! :) 

Jess, Me, and Vick have been best friends since our 9th grade year!!  Eeeekkk!!  Over 17 years!  (we are getting old!!)

Because someday's... I feel like Super Mom! ;)

Today is a new day!

I've been in a funk lately.  Not sure why, or what its from...    Today, I woke up in SUCH a better mood!!  Could be the fact that I went to bed at 9pm last night, and slept soundly untl 5:45!!   I do not do well on lack of sleep!!  AT all!!

I've been reading a new book that I can NOT put down!  It's the Nora Roberts bridal series!!  So good!!  I can't wait for book #2 to come in!  I'm really liking!! 

The girls are out of school on Friday and Monday for fall break!  We were going to go camping, but decided not to go.  We are going to the Blue's Fest instead!  Should be a good time!

I hope everyone has a great day! :)

I took a Blog break today... and got thing caught up around the house!!!  It's so nice having a clean house with all the laundry caught up!! 

Here is my "To do" list for the week::

I start back to work tomorrow, just for the week!  I applied for a new "dream" job... keep your fingers crossed for me!  I would LOVE it!!

Tomorrow is our first Daisy Scout meeting! :)  I'm excited and nervous... please let me be a good leader!!

We decided to go camping this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be goregous!!  Our last camping trip before we have to winterize the motor home!

My girls had a great weekend with their dad.  I can't believe it's been a year... time flies!!  I really don't want to get into the whole story (it's NOT a good one) just think good thoughts that we don't get put through what we did 1 1/2 years ago!

Ashley has a wart on the end of her toe... ew.  I must make a doctor's appointment for her!

My husband is going through a mid life crisis! LOL  He put his speakers and amp thingy back in the jeep today! Ugh!! 

I'm 32 years young, and had a HUGE zit come up on my cheek!  Seriously?!?!?! 

I bought 7 more Christmas presents this weekend... go me!! :)

I had a newborn shoot on Saturday!  She is precious!!  Here are some sneek peak pics... enjoy!

Have a great week everyone!!! If the pics below don't put a smile on your face... I don't know what will!! :)

Goooooood Morning Saturday!

I don't know why I even TRY to sleep in!  I'm a morning person! A sugary, smiling "GOOOOOD Morning" kinda morning person!!!  You know the type?!!  That's me! ;)

 I successfully slept in until... are you ready for it?!?!! ...... 6:45am!  Taaaa Daaaa!!  Seriously, even with no kids here... I'm  up!  Bug of course is sleeping, and can sleep until noon!  I on the otherhand, think I'm wasteing my day by sleeping in!!

Today, we are going to go to the hospital to see precious Hailey!!  I got to see her on Thursday, but Bug has had to work late, and has not been able to go see her! Newborn's make me happy!  Especially when they are somebody else's!

I got my menu planned out for the week.  I'm tired of cooking the same stuff... all the time.  So, I got a cookbook out, and picked 4 new recipes to try! 

Tortilla Soup
Sausage and Rice Bake
Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken Spaghetti

Now, I need to go grocery shopping!!

Bug surprised me last night... I got home from taking the girls to AR, and he had Steaks on the grill (porter houses, OMG my husband can cook a steak) baked potatoes, and wine!  It was Soooo yummy!!  It was great spending the evening on the back patio, laughing and talking!  We definately needed it!  We even decided to go camping next weekend, 1 last time before we have to winterize the motor home!  We aren't going to tell the girls.. and surprise them.  J & A are out of school Friday-Tuesday next week... so we are going to take a 4 day weekend to camp!  Soooo much fun! I can't wait!!

Now... off to hop....

Come join in... it's really fun!!

Grumpy, Grumpy Tish....

I'm grumpy today!!  I had one of those nights.... 

 11:30 pm (after being asleep for an hour) Miss J woke me up.  She thought it was time to "get up" so I had to get her back to sleep!  I cheated, and put her back to bed on the couch. 

 2:30 am  Marley (dog # 1) woke me up and needed to go out.

 3:00 am  Camo (dog #2) woke me up and wanted to go out with Marley.

3:30 am  both Marley and Camo were barking to be let back in.  Seriously?!?! 

So... I finally got to sleep from 3:30 until 6:15! Go Me!!  I'm tired.  Really tired.  I think I will take a nap before it's time to go get the girls...and drive them half way to their dad's for the weekend.  Another thing I am grumpy about.  REALLY grumpy about. 

I hope to shake this funk soon ... me and my husband get to sleep in tomorrow, we get to have an ADULT (not that kind of adult movie... just something other than G rated!) movie night tonight, we have a date night planned for tomorrow, and he will grill something on Sunday!  I've got the house clean and laundry caught up, so i don't have to do that this weekend.  I get some blogging time, and get to get caught up on some sewing I have been wanting to do! (Did you know I make pillowcase dresses!?!?!) I get to go get my baby fix again and enjoy my husband.   I should look at all the positives of the weekend!

What do you have planned for the weekend?!?!
