I've been bad....

Oh my....I've totally screwed this whole 365 thing right up! I just haven't felt like taking pictures lately and before I know it the day is over and there just isn't anything to take a picture of...except maybe me sleeping on the couch by 7 at night! I did take a ton of pictures last Saturday though so that is going to have to count. My husband went out of town last weekend so I took the kids to the mall. My MIL met us there with my two nieces as well. First we went to the book store where they were having a Valentines party. The kids listened to a story, had cookies and hot chocolate and then made Valentines cards. After we left there we had lunch and headed over to the play land. They always have so much fun playing together. It was a great day over all, but that was the last time I had my camera out. Oh well, can't be perfect all the time...right?

Day 35 {365}

Can you believe that I'm actually gonna post today's picture...TODAY?? Well, my sister-in-law's, sister-in-law is also pregnant. She is expecting her third baby after 5 years of trying! And because it's been so long she doesn't have anything so she is having another baby shower. Haley asked me to make her a little notebook to record all the gifts she will receive...she didn't have to ask me twice! Here is the finished product. I think it turned out so cute and it was super quick!

Day 34 {365}

Nothing exciting happened yesterday, so I decided to take a picture of one of our weekly dinners. This one is ALWAYS on the menu. My kids love spaghetti and they just gobble it right up, so I make it once a week. They haven't complained yet about being tired of it and until they do, it will continue to be on the menu. It's so easy and so cheap! I am posting two pics today because my darling husband was being a brat when I was trying to take my picture. He kept putting his hand in front of the camera, so when he took a bite a quick like snapped a picture of him. He was just putting his food in his mouth, but you can't see the fork so it looks really funny. I told him since he was being annoying I was going to post this pic of now maybe he will think twice about it next time...HAHAHAHA!

Days 27-33...playing catch up

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, but like I said in my other blog, I have either been really busy or just plain tuckered out. This little baby must really be growing because she's pretty much sucking the energy right out of me...LOL!'s the pictures from the last week....
{Day 27}Tuesday I had a very important doctors appointment. The appointment was originally scheduled for Monday, then I asked to have it changed to Wednesday so that way I didn't have to take any kids with me. Then, they ended up switching it back to Tuesday, and then on Monday they called me and had to switch the time of the appointment. UGH...if it weren't for my planner I would have been so confused. I rely on my planner so much, especially right now with all my appointments and stuff with the kids. My mom got me this one for Christmas and I love it.
{Day 28}I spent most of the day Wednesday cleaning my house because I was having some very special company over the next day. I was pretty tired by the end of the day and it wasn't as good as I know it could have been, but it was presentable...if only it would stay clean my life would be so much easier...LOL!
{Day 29}Thursday was a very special day for me. My BFF, Hannah, came down for the weekend and she spent the entire day with me! We planned on working on some scrapbooking projects, and even though we got all our stuff out, we spent more time talking and catching up. We have not spent time together like that for almost a year, so it was way over due. Later in the evening, my bible study ladies took a trip to Saginaw to see a friend who has been in the hospital on bed rest for 10 weeks (she's due one day before me with twins!) and Hannah went with us. We had more great conversations all the way there and all the way back. We talk often on the internet but it's just not the same as face to face. I am so grateful that we were able to spend time together. She is so special and I love her so much!!
{Day 30}I had a great day Thursday, but with all the fun and excitement I was plum tuckered out on Friday!! I pretty much put myself on bed rest and layed on the couch all day watching tv or playing on the computer. It felt good to just relax for a day!
{Day 31}My husband has been using my van to go work the last week because his truck is basically a pile, so I had to wait till Saturday to get groceries...I am not really fond of grocery shopping on Saturday to put it nicely, but it worked out pretty good this time. My MIL needed to go to Saginaw, so after I got groceries, I met her for lunch and the we headed to the mall. She bought me two nursing pajamas and an adorable snowsuit for the baby. This is Michigan, so I'm sure it will still be chilly (if not freezing) when baby arrives. I had been looking for something for her, and when we saw this we just HAD to have it. It's so soft and cuddly.
{Day 32}Super Bowl Sunday...the best Super Bowl ever??? I guess I wouldn't know...I fell asleep half way through half time...but this is my view of the tv from the couch...when my eyes were open anyway.
{Day 33}Mondays and I just don't get along for some reason. I was kind of feeling blue yesterday even though the sun was shining and the weather was nice. So, I decided to make some comfort food. I had a few ripe bananas and blueberries that needed to be used. After a quick search on the internet I found the perfect recipe. It was so quick and easy and the results were delicious. I will definitely be making this one again.
Guess that about does it...I'm all caught up...phew!

Day26 {365}

Despite my restful day yesterday I am really dragging today. I had a lot that I needed to get done, but had no motivation what-so-ever. So, I decided since I didn't feel like doing any housework, why not scrap a little? I finished up the baby calender that my mom gave me today. It turned out so cute, but of course I made a big mess! (You should see my floor...yikes!)

Days 23-25 {365}

Day 23...Friday
Friday night our cousins, Alex and Raemy, came over for dinner. They are expecting their first baby in May and they are also having a little girl. I thought it would be fun to get a picture of our ever growing bellies! It's not the best picture (of me anyway) but you get the point...I'm huge and she is just plain cute! I can't wait till we are both holding our precious little girls...I just know they are going to be the best of friends!
Day 24...Saturday
My MIL bought the girls a really cute dresser for their bedroom. Of course it came with "some assembly required"...well actually the whole thing needed to be put together and took nearly all day! I had to be sneaky with the camera, but here is a pick of my hubby taking his break. Apparently he seems to think he was putting together a foot stool...LOL!------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 25....Sunday
Sunday was a pretty relaxing day. I went to church and we studied out of the book of Nehemiah. Then I came home and made lunch, played on the computer, took a 2 hr nap, made dinner, gave the kids a bath, and then chilled out in front of the t.v. the rest of the night. Not to bad if you ask me!

day 22 {365} My Christmas Present...finally

My dear sweet husband decided to buy me a remote start for my van as my Christmas gift, but like a typical man he waited until the last minute to get it. He went to the car shop on December 23rd about 5 at night and of course they told him there was no way they could get it put in until well after Christmas. So, he got a gift certificate so I could get it done later. Well, apparently lots of wives got remote starts because I wasn't able to get an appointment until January 21st to get it put in!! We had all those cold days and every time I would think to myself how nice a remote start would have been right about then...LOL! And of course I had to tease my hubby and remind him that the gift certificate was doing a poor job of warming up my car for me! But now it's in and I absolutely love it!! I guess since I have that now I can tolerate winter for a bit longer!
