Life has been relatively quite around these parts and we call that a win.  No blogging lately means no drama lately, you know, heaven forbid me post the awesomeness that is my life :)  Here goes.  Spring has turned up quickly round these part, actually I don't think we ever had winter but I'm totally okay with that.  Looking forward to lots of beaching with our little this summer.  Work is good, although sometimes boring, good.  I went to drop off a pair of jeans to get altered and stopped by Walgreens for candy and nail polish (cause who doesn't paint there nails at work) and first I need to talk about the jeans.  Ya'll, clothes are freaking expensive.  Expensive to buy, expensive to make fit right, & expensive to buy the multiple items you need to make an outfit.  My dear MIL slipped me a cool hundy a couple weeks ago to go towards a new pair of jeans since I finally blew out my 4 year old, William Rast, $375, size 27 (dayum) jeans.  Obvi I did not have a child when I made such a STUPID purchase, I could buy SOOOO many diapers with that.  Anyhow I found a pair of Seven trouser jeans I liked online that were $170? (WTF no I would not pay this) so I went to Buckle to see if they had any comparable ones.  They happened to have to exact jean, one pair left, in my size NOT 27 but they were an extra long.  I only had to pay $19 on top of my MIL's kind donation and they alter for free so its a win.  So I thought. I went to pick them up a week later and couldn't try them on in the store cause I was "working," at the mall ya know?  I got home and they were still like a foot too long so I decided I would pay to have them hemmed since the free job was not working for me.  So normally it is $10 to have pants hemmed but she surprised me today by informing me it is now $20 to use the original hem.  I'm sorry what?  So you can cute them off and sew them up for $10 but in order to cut of the hem it is $20 more dollars?  GAH.  Freaking rip.  Whatev.  I pick em' up Thursday.  That amount of money on one non-baby thing makes me want to hurl these days.  Back to Walgreens, They had these great polishes on major sale so I picked up a few to play with at work (and for the babes tiny nails)!
 I did the hot pink, its awesome!
Last week we decided to try S in a big bed in hopes that when Emma comes next weekend she will rest easier not having to be in the crib while Emma got the freedom of big bed.  I left the crib up anticipating hell and I don't even think she cares.  She tells me big girl bed, she tells me only mommy & daddy get her out, and she sleeps.  We have an awesome kid.  This weekend the out laws are coming into town to bring us a family bedroom set for her.  Sad & happy :(  The crib is officially down.  She is getting a beautiful Jenny Lind full bed, dresser and all the works that belonged to John, his mom, and his grandmother.  I can't wait to ground her for putting stickers on it.  I also can't wait for me & the MIL to decorate her room with actual matching furniture, not my crap from college.  
I cannot wait to go to the beach.  Seriously.  We will be attending the Mullet Toss this year.  Well me & my mom & a girlfriend will cause John is keeping to babe & letting us enjoy some major sun time sans kid.  He does not need to know how excited I am, I may not sleep until then.  Yeah right it's not til the end of April.
Here's to hoping I can get my blogging mojo back but if not just know that were enjoying the weather, playing outside later than usual, staying up a little later, and just soaking in the days with our girl while she is still little.


  1. I cannot wait to provide Miss Scarlet with a batch of stickers!! We are still peeling them off (or trying to) from you and your sisters stuff!!!

  2. Love that polish and I can not believe she sleeps in a big girl bed.
