Weekend Randomness

  • I (with Liam’s help) took down our Christmas decorations last week. I simply hate the way our house looks every January when all of the decorations are gone. It is like we brought the cold darkness of winter inside when all the twinkle lights are gone.

Liam’s tree and our Christmas card tree.

  • Mr. Liam still has a cold, booo, and developed a cough which is so sad. Luckily we have some medicine from the doctor from the last time he was sick and it has helped so much.
  • Liam slept past 5am the last three days!!! Seriously, I cannot tell you how happy that has made me! Yesterday we all slept until 7:30…i have never felt so good!
  • Being a parent means spending your Christmas money on an organizational system for all of your kids presents to keep you sane. Oy vey, i cannot tell you how much the clutter way driving me crazy. It is so  much better now!


  • You know how when someone ventures into a new hobby they typically start with a simple beginner project? Not me,  I took on something new late last week and jumped into an advanced i’ve been dong this for yeeeeears project. But, I am happy to say I am LOVING the way it is turning out! (no sneak peak picture, it is a gift)
  • I also learned that sewing while listening to heavy/alternative metal (Tool, I need my daily dose of Maynard) makes me sew faster.
  • I got a new phone!! I had an LG Dare (touch screen) for the last two years and on Tuesday the screen peeled off (when i was waiting for my brothers flight to come in) which in turn meant the touch screen no longer worked (lucky I was still about to call the last person that called me which was my Dad, could not have been a better person to serve as the middle man in talking to my brother and I with the whole flight thing). So Tuesday night i got my new one, a LG Vortex, and to say i love it would be an understatement. How did I last so long in the social networking world without a smart phone? It is awesome!
  • The Pandora app has become a new obsession, my favorite “station” is Temple of the Dog, total awesomeness!
  • Remember when Liam got a ball pit back when he was only 5 months old. We we didn’t have it up for a few months now and just put it back up when we took the tree down and oh my goodness he LOVES it! I am so glad we took it down and just now put it up when he is at an age that he really enjoys it. He DIVES in and out all day and loves putting the balls down the ramp.


  • My (little guy) picky eater (since i have two picky eaters living with me) ate margarita pizza and grilled cheese this weekend. It was a major victory!
