Down with the Sickness

Standard

This weekend was full of sickness in our house. Little Man started off with a cold, then passed it to Squeaky. Little Man also has a double ear infection (the 5th one of his not even 2 years) and is being referred to the ENT to see what’s going on.

On the good news side of our world, Little Man’s second birthday party is this weekend! We already have everything picked out and we just have some last minute things to buy. He’s having a Cars themed party, he’s going to love it (at least I hope so). A few of his little friends will be there, so we’re making some coloring pages. There will also be bubbles and a road made on the floor to drive cars on. Hopefully that will be enough for the kids, since the ages will range from 1 to 6.

Next month, I’m going to start a program to get me into shape before my husband and I go to the Philippines next January. I’m not sure what program I’ll do, but I’m googling. Google is basically my best friend. I haven’t started my bullet journal yet, I have so much going on that I haven’t gotten around to setting it up. Hopefully I’ll be able to sometime before March starts.

That’s all I’ve got for now. How’s life for you? Let me know! See you soon!

This Is It…

Standard

Wow! So I have been gone for quite a while, but I have good reasoning! We have no WiFi as of right now, so I’m hurrying to type this using my mobile data. Also, Squeaky was born! His birth story will be posted later at some point. He’s doing great though and Little Man is adjusting very well (better than I thought he would) to having a little brother and we’ve been able to keep our daily routine about the same (luckily).

Little Man still goes to school on a daily basis. His teething hasn’t eased much since November, but I’ve figured out why. He has about 8 teeth trying to come in at the same time, they’re all about halfway in and his mouth looks so weird. Any time he’s talking and I see his molars, I still think he has something in his mouth even though it’s just teeth. He’s learning more words and remembering people very well. His second birthday party is at the end of this month, so I’m currently working on planning that.

I have been busy, considering I have a toddler and a newborn now. For some reason that I’m sure I’ll regret later, I decided to hand make the invitations to Little Man’s birthday party. His grandma has volunteered to buy the decorations and his great aunt is making the cake. I can’t wait to see it all together.

Squeaky is 7 weeks old today. He’s gained more weight than needed so that’s great. His only issue right now is sleeping in his own bed, but he’s starting to sleep there more. I just need to figure out the perfect time after he’s asleep to lay him in his bed.

I’m going to try to post weekly, since I’m going to be starting a bullet journal. I’ll be back next week (hopefully)!

Say My Name

How are youuuu? (Thank you Karen Gillan). Today’s post for the October Blogging Challenge is the story behind your blog name. Sadly, there really isn’t a story behind it, it just popped into my head one day. Then I googled it to make sure there wasn’t a blog with this name (if you know of one that started before my blog, please let me know and I’ll change mine) and then this blog was born. That’s it.

Since that was so short, I’ll add on some random content. If you’re a mom or mom to be reading this, go google mom and baby subscription boxes. You won’t be sorry. There are SO many that I wish I knew about while I was pregnant instead of now that my little guy is 7 months old! There is a long list of them here, some are crossed out but there are still a TON on there! Go check them out. My husband and I are looking into some now!

That’s all I really have to talk about today. Come back tomorrow and I’ll definitely have more for you!

I don’t know about everyone else but I love Monday nights, at least until CBS is done with Thursday Night Football. Big Bang Theory is one of my all time favorite shows! Anyway, on with the topic of the day which happens to be my 5 favorite foods. I would include a link to the website I use for this, but the blogger is currently redoing her website!

I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!! I could eat my weight in chocolate and still want more…maybe…but I seriously love chocolate. I don’t know if a love for a certain food can be passed through genetics, but if it can, I TOTALLY blame my mom!

Like I said yesterday, I love Chinese food but mostly vegetable lo mein. I’ve found that our local restaurant has the best vegetable lo mein and I can’t eat it anywhere else now! It’s saddening! Most women that I’ve met that are or have been pregnant can’t stand the food they ate a LOT throughout pregnancy anymore, but that’s SO not the case with me!

Does ice cream count as a food? Well, in my opinion it does so that’s a favorite food for sure. This is another thing I can thank my mom for if food tastes are genetic.

PASTA! Any type of pasta is the best thing ever! Pretty much the only thing I would cook myself while I was in high school was egg noodles with butter and garlic salt mixed in. FREAKING YUM!

The only semi-healthy thing on here is tuna. I love tuna. I mix it with mayonnaise and pickles or make burgers. My husband absolutely loves the recipe that the link goes to, so you should definitely try it out!

Wow, I have some poor food decisions. Thank you genetics for a fast metabolism! What is your favorite food? Let me know stuff! See you tomorrow for the last day of the September Blogging Challenge!
