8 DAYS!!

Only 8 more days till I leave on our 3rd annual Girl Trip!! I am so excited that I can hardly stand myself! I am sure Seth is ready for me to go so I will shut up about it! Me and 10 of my closest girls will be flying this year (poor flight attendants!) up to North Carolina for 5 wonderful days without kids or husbands! WOOHOO!!
Here are our cute shirts we had custom done on Etsy

I highly recommend our Etsy seller CMDtees, she was so wonderful to work with, we had tons of questions and she was always super quick to reply! I know I will be sure to give her future business!

Halloween costume help!

So, Seth and I have a costume party to go to this year and I need your help on costumes! Last year I went as a pregnant nun and Seth was my priest. Since I was pg at the time, the costume was cheap and easy, like me. :)
This year I am stuck on ideas...
Here are my requirements:
Gosh, do you spot a trend?
Anyways....I have one idea so far, the Spartan Cheerleaders from SNL. Do you remember these guys? I have a feeling we could feel a boombox somewhere and walk around doing cheers all night, but who knows...
What is YOUR great idea for us?!?!

I just watched this clip and I am laughing so hard!! I cannot believe some one made this slide and didn't think it looked phallic like! Either that or they did it on purpose and are a sick sick individual!

I may have to eat my words...

I have the best husband...

I just have to tell you about my wonderful husband and daddy to my kiddos. He rocks. He never complains about working two jobs so that we can afford for me to stay home with the boys, something that was important to us both. He also manages to help me out at night when Aiden is having a rough night. With both boys he was up every time to help me out. I would hurry up and make a bottle while he was upstairs changing the diaper and calming them down till I got up there. If I have a bad day, he is the first one to tell me to call some friends and go have a drink, go shop, go on a walk, just get out of the house by myself. He never complains when I do want to have a girls night out or even at our house. He keeps the kids upstairs and lets the girls take over the downstairs. He isn't one of those guys who keeps track and tells me that I had enough girls nights and its his turn out. I love that about him. I feel so blessed to have him as my husband. Every time I see him with our boys my heart melts and I am reminded again of how lucky I am that God put him in my life, I love you Seth!

Here comes Ike!

Hurricane Ike is supposed to make landfall at any time now. They are already talking about 7 & 8 ft surges down in Galveston. If I were down there I would be driving north as fast as I could. BUT I'm here in DFW. Besides some rain and some wind are we really in for that much of a problem? With the way people were acting last night at Costco you would think so! I have never seen people buying that much bottled water and canned goods! It was crazytown! Maybe I am delusional, I just happen to think positively and not dwell on what may or may not happen. I guess if we lose power for a few days I won't be able to blog, but then I will be back to say I was wrong. :)

My poor Aiden...

Aiden woke up with a runny nose and eyes on Saturday, but with everything in the air we just thought it was allergies. It stayed the same through the weekend, not getting any better or worse. He was still his happy self except for at night. As soon as we would stand up from the glider, he would start screaming, like he knew what we were going to do. We would load him up with pain meds, teething tablets and orajel, but no go, he was just miserable. SO both nights he stayed up with us till 10:00 when he could barely keep his eyes open and we would go put him down, only to have him wake up a few hours later howling in pain. I knew he was cutting two teeth on top, but this was bad!
So this morning I got him a Dr appt and took him in. Seth and I thought he just had really bad allergies, and he was having a tough time breathing, since he was so stuffed up. Our little baby Darth Vader!
Wellllll, turns out little man has a double ear infection, the Dr was surprised he was not running a raging fever and yanking on his ears, said it was BAD. He is also NOT cutting two teeth, he has about 4 about to pop through and to top it all off, he has pink eye! FUN!!!
So no wonder he didn't want to sleep, the Dr said it was probably hurting him really bad to lay down and sleep, all the pressure. Which makes sense and since the last two days his naps were in the car or on my chest in the cry room at church I never even tried to lay him down in his bed at naptime. So hopefully he will start feeling better in a day or two, especially since the boys are going to my parents house tonight!

I love Lush!

I love Lush! I first went to the store back in December. It was after Christmas and they were having a huge sale so I loaded up, to the tune of : stop reading Seth: a little over a hundred dollars! Then I went back a few months later and tried a few more things and loved all of those as well. SO the other day after my stupid Dr appt, more on that in another post, I called Seth and had him join me at North Park to get some shampoo. I have been wanting to try the Squeaky Green shampoo bar for a while, plus I needed a mask again. So I got both and came home to put the mask in the fridge and noticed the receipt. Turns out I got my two items, but I paid for 4! To the tune of $20 over! Why didn't I realize this at the store? Probably cause I was too busy talking to the girl. So I called them up right away and the girl that rang me up answered. I told her what happened and she talked to her manager. They ended up refunding my money to my credit card over the phone and they set aside a gift bag for me to pick up next time I am there! How awesome is that! I love all their products, but I am definitely a customer for life now!

::I don't want to hear any smart ass comments from certain people about how I always get free things either! You ho who you are!::

Go inside please...

I really have to wonder why news stations make the reporters report from out in the storm. As I am watching Gustav pound down on the gulf, these poor reporters are standing sideways out in the wind and rain, struggling to report. What happens if someone gets hurt? How would the station feel then? I can promise that I can understand how bad the storm is with you reporting inside from a dry, SAFE area....ugh
