I feel the need to Keep It Real, folks. When my training ramps up, it’s all I can do to keep the laundry done. So, let’s just forget the rest of the house. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a clean house. Everything organized and put away and in it’s place. But, after wrangling kids, training, and working all day.. I just don’t have it in me to clean up. Below is a photo diary of what my house looks like. Hopefully, it will make you feel better about yourself.
This is what greets you when you come in.. either walk past it, or add to it!
Last but not least, here is the jungle treachery that you will find on the way to my bedroom… A lone running shoe, a camera bag, tote bag (this was after I had been to see Grandpa), a piece of luggage that has been there since I went to DC, and my vacuum cleaner.
Basically, my house always looks like this. I can’t tell you the last meal I cooked and I am pretty sure I haven’t been grocery shopping since 2012. If it weren’t for my husband, most days I probably wouldn’t even remember to eat… he keeps me fed, y’all. He caught on to what a grouch some one who is rungry is!
Please share with the rest of us the sacrifices you and your family make to train… it’s always nice to know you’re not alone!!
We celebrated Claire’s 3rd birthday on Saturday. I ran out of time, so I was missing some of the decorations I had planned… like the water bottle labels and food labels. But oh well. I still pulled it off– even if I was in jeggings and a tank top and decorating cupcakes when people started showing up.
The wreath… well worth the full days worth of work, I think!
Cupcakes.. not as decorated as I would have liked. Oh well.
In case you weren’t sure who Becca was that I always talk about– she’s my second husband and my personal stylist. (and of course a sleeping baby Avery) Claire thoroughly enjoyed her 3rd birthday party… I thought it was a hit and my best party yet! Even if my time management skills were lacking. I’ll blame it on UPS and my husband working until noon.
She is hilarious. I wanted to share some of the funnies she has said in the past couple of months…
She was telling me about eating a corndog.. “I ate a corn dog. It was so good. But… I was biting it and THEN. My hot dog fell out of my corndog sack!”
She kills me singing. All. The. Time. Here are some of her gems.
“Ba Ba black sheep have you any wolf?
Yes sir. yes sir. 3 bags full.
One for my master,
one for the maid,
one for the little boy who lives in the maze…”
and of course who could forget the classic:
“Row row row your boat gentle down the stream,
merry merry merry life’s above a dream.”
This. This is what has started my utter and complete fascination with being a part of a flash mob. Don’t know what a flash mob is? Well, it’s a group of people who get together and choreograph dances and do them in public places.
I saw this one today, and it’s probably the best one I have seen. I immediately started youtubing these videos…
Stop. Hammer Time.
Backstreet’s Back. Alright?
Can’t have a Flash Mob without MJ…
Ohhh. Modern Family. I double heart you.
I totally want to be apart of one of these!! I don’t care how dorky you might think it is… This is totally awesome!!!!
I found a new event to add to my bucket list… Who’s with me???
Every once in a while, I will get a crafty surge and I have to succumb to it. Yesterday’s was Christmas pillows. SaSa came over and I was setting up Christmas decorations and telling her how I thought I might make some Christmas pillows to match the tree skirt and she spotted my table runner and matching cloth napkins I had yet to put in their home. She told me to make that into a pillow.. I had two- I could make a pillow! I told her that if I used a different fabric for the back that I could make two! I also had the perfect cream to match the stripe. When I went to my fabric tote, I found a bunch of fabric that I could use in my pillow making. I decided to try to do and put together what I could so I could wait on going to Hobby Lobby just in case there was something else I ran across needing.
Hey, look, it’s Nick Saban….
I can’t tell you how awesome the trip was…it was so nice to relax, sleep in, and take naps!
Some of you may be surprised by the lack of a certain Vampire. But, let’s face it, while he is a pretty face, he is also a goob in interviews and apparently doesn’t bathe, so I’m out.
Your Welcome for the Man Candy.
