Two Day Hangover…

It’s possible.
A two day hangover.
So. Very. Possible.

This weekend, was Hales’ bachelorette party.
And let’s just say… I drank more that night, than I have drank in the last two years, combined.

True story.

My typical hangover, is just being beyond ridiculously tired.
That’s about it.

So, I stopped two times on the drive home for coffee.
I crashed for two hours when I got home.
And Monday??
Well, I just wanted to sleep all freaking day long.

Now, I’m typically a tired person… but this was just beyond that!!

I’m starting to feel normal again.  But not normal enough to go through the photos from last week to do a weekly update.
I’ll get on that tomorrow.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!!



Week in Photos – 15/52

Guys… I have a confession.
My weeks are all messed up.
Yep.  It’s true.
Your Sunday is my Saturday.
Your Monday is my Sunday.
Guess this happens when the hubby works Tuesday-Saturday.
So, while everyone is posting their weekly recap on Monday, I post on Tuesday…
Because you know, Tuesday is my Monday.

I also took a lot of photos this week.
I guess the kids were being extra cute.
Oh, and it was my Birthday!!! on Sunday…
So more pictures that the norm were taken!!

Week15.8It’s true. I don’t know what happened, but at one point, I felt like I was 27, and that was well before I was 27.. So now I feel like I’ve been 28 for years.  Apparently I wanted to skip over 25 and 26…

Week15.1Lilly walking around with a bucket on her head, silly girl.  **  Baked ravioli for dinner, so delicious.  **  The precipitation forecast for last Thursday through this Wednesday.  How sad is that?!  **  Little man loves his carrots!

Week15.2Josh is getting revenge on his sister!  **  Lilly is a flower girl in Auntie Hales’ wedding, and she got her dress and the invite on the same day!  **  New Tinkerbell bedding for my big girl.  **  Just chilling in the bouncer.

Week15.3I tried to get a photo for thank you notes for her birthday party… she did not want to smile. This is what happened when I said, “Say Cheese!”.  **  Hey Ladies!!  **  Birthday breakfast at the coffee shop, yum.  **  Lilly being a goofball, while waiting for Daddy to get out of the store.

Week15.4Yoga, bright and early, to start my birthday off great!  **  Coffee and chai for my birthday, with the sister-cousin.  **  FREAKING SNOW!!!!  UGH!!!!  My birthday was great up until that point!  **  Lilly wanted to go to yoga too.

Week15.5Chris went and got ice cream cake for my birthday, and Lilly loved it!  Loved it so much, she licked the plate and the table when she was done.

Week15.6Monday was actually a very nice day, so we decided to get out of the house.  We ended up at a county park/waterfall.  It was beautiful!

Week15.7Lilly enjoyed being out in the fresh air, and able to run around… and climb on things.
But she was good and held my hand when needed too, especially when we looked over the waterfall on the bridge.


Week in Photos – 14/52

This week was pretty crummy.
Lilly and I were both sick.
Chris worked a bunch of overtime.
Lilly threw up.
Josh had an eye infection.
Just overall, our family was out of it.

Thankfully, we are now at the end of the sickness.
Josh’s eye has cleared up.
Chris will hopefully not have to work overtime this week (or at least, not as much as last week).
My birthday is on Sunday!!  Woot!
It’s got to be a good week.
Even though the weather is supposed to be crappy (seriously, rain every day?!).

So, this is what my past week has looked like.

Week14.1Cuddles with Daddy.  **  A family divided, one Cubs fan, in a land of Brewers fans.  **  Lilly loves watching Tinkerbell.  **  I could tell she was sick this week, she never falls asleep in the living room, but she did this week.

Week14.2Oh wait… Now Josh is a Cubs fan!!  **  Chris was playing with Josh and Lilly wanted in on the action!  **  Second time Lilly fell asleep in the living room this week.  **  I’m a nerd, and went through all the books I have bought for my Kindle that I haven’t read.  I put them in rating order from Goodreads, and am now bound and determined to read all of them, before I purchase another book.  So far, 3 down, 32 left.

Week14.3Ordered Lilly’s flower girl dress for Hales’ wedding!!  **  Josh was my cuddle buddy this week.  **  Chilling on her couch, reading Dr. Seuss.  **  Lilly wanted to dress herself, shorts, long sleeved shirt and dress shoes… my little diva.

Week14.4Daddy and Josh playing video games.  **  Someone turned 4 months old!!!  **  Gah, he is such a handsome little man!  **  My babies… looking so much alike!

I’m off to finish reading book 4 of the 35.  I’m on a mission, and cannot be stopped.
Seriously, how did I read before my Kindle?!





Week in Photos – 13/52

My baby girl turned 2 on the 21st of March.
TWO years old!!
Guess I can’t call her my baby anymore…

How in the world did that happen?!

So we had her birthday on Thursday, we had a party for her on Saturday and we had Easter/party with other side of family this past Sunday.
So much going on…

Here are a few photos from the last two weeks.

Week13.1Lilly enjoying her birthday pancakes **  Birthday cake on her birthday.. little stinker kept picking at the frosting.  **  Mmmmm… cake… **  Modeling her new clothes.

Week13.2A birthday gift from my brother, yep, that’s basically what I’m trying to do… **  Her second birthday cake this year, I spent a lot of time on Friday making it for her.  **  The inside of the cake.  **  Yay for ballerinas!!

Week13.3My best friend and her son, with Josh (they are best friends too)… apparently Z did not want to share his momma!  **  Hales and Josh hanging out.  **  Lilly put her hat on Daddy.  **  Best friends!!

Week13.4Lilly and I after church on Easter.  **  Opening presents at her (third) birthday party.. she loves books!  **  Some kitchen utensils, they will look good with her kitchen set.  **  Josh and I after church on Easter, my little man is all dressed up!

Week13.5The first picture of all of us together!! It’s blurry, but it was the best one, since Chris did not want to take any pictures, and refused to smile in any but this one!

Hope you all had a great last few weeks!  And a wonderful Easter!


Week in Photos – Catch Up!

Where have I been?

Well, I guess life has caught up with me.
That… and some MAJOR cleaning!
Every time I sit down and think I’m going to blog – I think “well, I need to clean this or do this..”
So, blogging gets put to the back… week after week after week.

This week, I’m playing catch up.

Week11.6I realized I dressed Lilly in the same outfit I put her in a year ago, so I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison… my little girl is getting so big!!  **  Stabbing her garlic bread with the fork, that’s how she eats.  **  My posters from my favorite musician!!  Got them framed and hung up!!  WOOT!  **  Lilly being pulled in the sled at my parent’s house.. she loved it!

Week11.5Lilly watching Downton Abbey with me… I may have gotten addicted to it.  **  My happy little man – and the shirt is so true!  **  Josh and Grandpa snuggling.  **  Lilly finally passed out after a massive temper tantrum.

Week11.4A text from my best friend – she never liked Justin when we were teenagers, (I have loved him since the MMC..), so it was very entertaining to get that text from her!  **  Lilly and Josh hanging out on their couch.  **  Chris had his birthday at the end of Feb.  I made him raspberry vanilla cupcakes.  **  Lilly didn’t want to eat dinner, so I gave her yogurt instead… and she made a massive mess.

Week11.3Lilly making a painting for Daddy’s birthday.  **  Josh turned 3 months old at the beginning of March!  **  Josh and Grandpa hanging out – they have the same smirk!  **  Lilly wearing Grandpa’s headphones for when he mows the lawn.

Week11.2Josh and Uncle Nathan hanging out.  **  Lilly eating a cupcake on Chris’ birthday.. she was very excited… and super hyper afterwards!  **  He is seriously such a happy guy!!  **  Lilly was reading to her Great-Grandma.

Week11.1Josh was trying to blend into the blanket.  **  Chris’ birthday present from me.  A ‘bro-quet’ of all his favorite things.  **  My sister-cousin and I after power yoga yesterday… I am feeling it today!  **  Lilly and Grandpa making snow angels.

Week11.7Ahhh… pretty Lambeau.  **  I needed a night of just relaxing, reading and ice cream!  **  Watching Downton Abbey on my brothers iPad while visiting the family.  **  I won some fun flavored stevia from one of the blogs I read… it was quite exciting!!

Week11.8My new reading corner!  You should have seen this corner before, it was full of totes and boxes and junk.  We finally got it cleaned out and now it is an amazing, comfy reading corner!  I love!

Hope you have all had a great couple of weeks.
I’m off to plan a little girl’s birthday party for this Saturday!
I cannot believe I am going to have a 2-year-old come Thursday!!


Week in Photos – 8/52

Why does it seem like the weekend has just flown by?
Maybe it’s because hubby is working Tuesday-Saturday shifts these days… so our weekend doesn’t truly start until Sunday, and that is when most people are winding down their weekend.
Ugh… I don’t know.
All I do know, is this was a much too short weekend…

Week8.1I typically never win anything (and believe me, I have entered enough giveaways!)… but I finally did win something!!  It’s carpet cleaner, stain remover and such… which is very helpful here, since I have a little girl who likes to dump everything on our carpets!!  ::  Lilly decided she was going to wear some makeup.  ::  Josh, proving he’s the good child right now.  ::  The aftermath of a delicious mixed berry crumb bar at the coffee shop my sister-cousin and I hung out at.

Week8.2Coffee date with the sister-cousin.  ::  Sweating it up – I have no idea how I got that smile out… my body hated me.  ::  Typical nightly view…. a sink full of bottles.  ::  Mr. Smilie-Face.

Week8.3Lilly just chilling on her couch watching some morning PBS.  ::  A snack after a tough workout (grapefruit smoothie and egg, bacon and cheese biscuit).  ::  New treadmill workout I’ve started… it kicked my butt… especially since I did a leg/arm circuit the day before.  ::  I can’t help it… every time I drive past Lambeau Field, I have to take a picture… it just makes me so ridiculously happy.  My sister-cousin even laughed at me, as I drive past it at least on a weekly basis… she thinks I should be sick of it by now… silly girl.


How was your week?
