Saturday Morning Scene

So far, this has been what's going on.

We have a fun day on the agenda though. Full of shopping. It's time to go out and get some Mother's day gifts and birthday presents for various family members and then we might go on a little cowboy boot search for Michael. He's wanting some to take out west this fall when we take our trip to Wyoming. Afterwards we will probably head off to church (I prefer Saturday night over Sunday morning, what can I say...I like my sleep). Then maybe...just maybe...I can talk my husband into cooking out since it's such a nice day.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

A Day in My Life Through Pictures

I saw a version of this done by Shannon over at Life After I "Dew". This is my version using Instagram. I'd like to tell you what you see below is a typical day, but I really don't believe I have a typical day. I have Ethan on a schedule of course, but everyday is truly different. I really enjoyed doing this and will probably do it again sometime in the future. I think I even got a little overzealous seeing as how there are about 50 pictures. I'll probably pair it down a little bit next time. Anyways, Enjoy.

An Incoherent Post....Good Luck

Today has been one of those days where there is too much to do and not enough time to do it. It doesn't help that it's off and on nasty outside and that I'm feeling scattery today.

Definition of scattery = (1) I can't think straight (2) I jump from idea to idea (3) I leave things unfinished (4) I forget what I'm doing while I'm doing it.

See, I can't even make a coherent post.....mainly because I have nothing of substance to post today...

Feel free to move right

... I am working on a fun post for tomorrow though. Hopefully it will be ready. It involves Instagram (fun!).

How about some random thoughts?

  1. Why do people feel the need to touch your baby? Every time I go to the grocery store, people come up and grab Ethan's feet and talk to him (aka breathe all over him) while I'm conveniently distracted by getting stuff I need or checking out. Agh. Stop.
  2. When am I going to grow my mom claws and tell them to stop? I feel like I couldn't pull off (please don't touch my baby) in a nice way. I don't like for things to get awkward. Plus part of me thinks they are going to think I'm a crazy person or a germaphobe when I tell them to put their hands up and slowly back away from the baby.
  3. I always feel like an idiot when I go to the post office. It's not even a real post's some affiliate store...I don't even know where the real one is here...anyways. I expect them to be able to tell me the mailing options, but apparently they expect me to know what I want. They look at me like I'm ridiculous if I ask them the best way to mail something. Today I tried to sound like I knew what I was doing when I went to mail pictures to Ethan's great grandparents. I simply asked for a priority mail envelope. $10 later I walked out still feeling like a complete idiot because I obviously picked an expensive choice. FAIL!
  4. Why am I the only one who replaces the toilet paper in this house *cough, cough* (this is directed at you Michael!).
  5. I think I'm addicted to making baby food. I've got more than enough and let's just say I'm so excited to expose him to all different types of food that I may, or may not be doing the 3 day rule thing. Oops. Oh well, the first foods really aren't big allergic reaction causers. I'll try to contain myself.
If you made it through this post....bless you....really. At least one thing is off my to-do list today...I feel better even if it is a scattery mess. It's a true reflection of my day and state of mind.

Ok...I'm stopping before this gets any worse.

Ethan's First Easter

This morning we woke up at what felt like the crack of dawn to pull off getting to church on time which usually never happens. On top of this, we were headed to my mom's church 45 minutes away. Eeeks.

We made it....on time....barely. Ethan rode over in a plain ole onsie in order to avoid any mishaps on the way since I only had one Easter appropriate outfit. I changed him in the car once we got there and as soon as I got him dressed he threw up on both him and me.

No fear. Everything was salvagable. I just found it ironic and may or may not have let a few not so church appropriate words slip in frustration.

He sat through church with us and behaved wonderfully although I didn't hear a word of the sermon. Children in church are way too distracting even if they do behave. In the middle of the service I realized I forgot his cooler of food in our fridge at home. More inappropriate words were thought. Maybe I should attend two services next week. Why is it that I always forget ONE thing...that happens to be crucial?

After church we ran over to Wal-greens to fix my little mishap and headed to my moms house where we took the traditional Easter family pics and had an awesome meal.

Ethan went through his Easter basket and watched the grownups have there own little Easter egg hunt filled with grown up things like money!

I'm proud to say we escaped the holiday without a single meltdown even though he only had an hours worth of nap time the whole day. Go E!

It was wonderfully fun, but I'm exhausted. Hope everyone else enjoyed the beautiful day!
