Happy Thoughts Tuesday

When I woke up this morning, still not feeling well, I thought of a lot of things I could complain about.   But complaining never makes you feel good.  In fact, for me at least, I always feel worse, because now I’m mad about whatever I was complaining about.  So instead, I’m going to tell you…

Dear Izzy

First of all, it’s after 9pm. Why are you up, and so energetic? Next, stop trying force me to put my shoes on. I know you like to be outside, but mommy decides when it’s time to go, not you. Putting my shoes on my lap, shoving them in my face, and even going so…

Random Makeup Post

Yeah, the title is totally unimaginative. eh..  I thought about Fab Friday, or Fancy Friday, but this post isn’t about to pack nearly enough pizazz to get either of those titles, lol! Anyway, I did my makeup today, for the first time in what seems like forever, so I wanted to share! Eyes Lips And…

Hard Headed

Have you ever heard that ” You can’t out-train bad eating habits”? I’m no diet or nutrition expert by ANYBODY’s measure, but it makes perfect sense to me.  Erika over at BGG2WL says it all the time.  I understand the logic.  I believe the science.  So why is it that the part of my brain…

Valentines Day Gift

This is my Valentines Day gift. 🙂 why? Because my husband had the good sense to ask me what, if anything I wanted. He gave me the option of being surprised, or choosing a gift. So I chose. Because I knew that he never would have bought me that on his own. He would have…

Izzy’s Buddy

Meet Frank. Frank is a bee, from PillowPet land.  Izzy’s looovvveeess Frank. Why is his name Frank?  Well, I asked Izzy what we should name him, and the first babble out of her mouth kinda sounded like “Frank” so we went with it. Izzy sits on Frank. Lounges with Frank. Loves on Frank. Eats with…

Money Matters

Even though it’s pretty early in her life, Byron and I have already been thinking about how we’re going to teach Izzy about the value of money.  We agree that it’s important to start very early.  Like, 5 years old early.  Around that time, we will start giving her an allowance, that will be split…
