It is time I start posting more!

Well I have a 1 year old! YIKES Where did the last year go? I swear time needs to slow down. M had a great time at her party. Cupcake was the theme. Here a a few pictures from the big day.

I was hoping to go more all out. But at the end I gave up. Putting together a party like this just took over my life. It was my obsession for the month. We had 2 different parties. She is one spoiled little girl!

I am going to try and start C25K again. I need to. I need to find the motivation to get me going and keep going. Any ideas?

Crafty Mom

New obsession for the month of October.....

Monday, September 6, 2010


Yo! Today is day 1 of couch to 5k (the app rocks!). I feel great right now after working out. M was screaming her head off, the hubs was driving me nuts and I just needed to get out for a bit. I walked to my sisters house and ran on the treadmill (we are storing it at her house). It felt really good to turn up the jams and burn some calories. I am going to stick with it this time. FOR REAL!  I'm not happy with myself and I know nothing negative can come out of working out.

Pretty soon this will be me :
(I can wish)

No big plans this week. Still moving things into the house. M is all registered for swimming lessons that start next week. PUMPED I was a swimmer growing up. I swam from age 5-19 it was my life. I miss it :( I'm hoping to get in better shape so I will wear a swimsuit in public. That way I can swim while M is in lessons.

Have a fab week!!

The big move

Hello all! We have been way busy moving. M room is all painted and things are starting to come together. We went with a nice mint green color. I will post pics when I take some and get the room all set up.

Being a SAHM has been fun and a challenge. But I am enjoying it. M is crawling!!! It is way cute. watching her little butt go back and forth. This morning I was trying to get ready and it took way longer having to chase her all over the house. Other than that nothing new with us. I will try and post more!!

Day 1

Today was my 1st day of being a stay at home mom. It had it's ups and downs.

I was not bored all day
I will loose weight chase the kids all day
L (sisters son) makes me smile
I love being home with M. I swear she is growing up right in front of me
I loved not feeling like I HAD to do anything today. I could take my time and do things at my own speed and when I wanted to (well not feed them or change them but you get my point)

My sisters children both ate dog food
B (sister's daughter) was sick all day
Both kids had enough poop for 44 grown men
All 3 kids peed out of their diapers (it is way warm here and I was giving them tons of water)
Could not get L to take a nap

Overall I would say the day was great. I know I will get the hang of it. But only time will tell.....

** I was going to post pics from the trip but my stupid computer whacks out every time I try**

We made it!

13 hours in the car to Tahoe and back. DONE!! I am in love with Tahoe. The hubs keeps asking if we can move there. LOL Highlights of the trip are:

  • We celebrated 3 years of marriage! 
  • Hubs family is just odd that is the only way I can put it
  • We found the coolest beach. I will be back (I hope to be in a smaller swimsuit next year)
  • I almost broke my arm when we almost hit a skunk
  • Saw tons of shooting stars
  • A mouse is a rat! I do not care how small and cute it might be
I will do a post with pics tomorrow. Hope you had a great weekend!

I'm in a funk today. M is sick. Temp is 102 and will not stay down and she is teething. It is my last week of work and I had to call in sick yesterday and today to stay home with her. I just feel blah. I need something to get me motivated. We leave for vacation in a week. And really I'm not excited. I think I might break my rule and hit up the mall. I have some things to return and buying something will put me in a better mood. Now if only I could get myself off the couch.

Sunday, July 25, 2010


I have been painting all weekend long. BARF My body hurts. But I am telling my self great way to burn calories. I am trying to figure out what paint color to use in M room. Her room is going to be very very small. Any ideas? Here is her bedding :
Her room also has pink. What color do you think the room should be? I have been thinking a pale pink or teal? We did get some samples and I think the room will glow in the dark with the 2 we picked. Any ideas will be great! 

It is my last week at work!!! PUMPED finally. I cannot wait to walk out of there on Friday knowing I will not go back. It has been a great 6 years at the company I work for. But time to move on and start a new adventure. 

Have a great week!

Dear Nord.strom,

I know I have not been spending my paycheck with you. I am sorry. I have not bought anything in store during the Anniversary sale. But I did order during pre-sale a $200 face brush that I am in love with. If my husband knew it was $200 I think I might be sleeping in the car tonight. The emails you have been sending me are depressing, so many things I want but do not need. Then on top of that you are calling me every other day to remind me you have not seen me yet. All this is telling me is that I have a shopping problem. Thank you for your calls and emails. I have looked back on my spending and have realized I am a shopaholic and I might need to seek rehab. I am not letting myself within 600 feet of the mall for the next few months.

No job = No shopping

With love (and a huge credit card balance)

P.S. The hub already told me I am not allowed to get a part time job with you because I would spend more than I made in a week.

Time to plan

M will be turning 1 at the end of this year. I am going to start planning her big day early.
1. Because I am a planner and want everything perfect.
2. We are watching money. So I plan on making a lot of the items (I'm not very crafty) and I want to try and find good deals.

 What is the theme?? I give you 1 guess. CUPCAKES!!!!!!! I will keep you all updated on the planning. I'm really excited. I might even post pics of my projects in progress. Get ready for tons of fails.

What is new??

I gave my 2 week notice at work today. YIKES!! I'm very excited to be a SAHM and watch my niece and nephew. It will be challenging but I am up for it. I have always wanted to be a SAHM. I do not want to look back on my life in 20 years and look at M and think I wish I tried being a SAHM when she was young. So in 2 weeks a new chapter of my life will start.....

No motivation

I have not started to work out yet. I really need some motivation. We go on vacation in a month. I have no clothing that fits me. I am just really depressed about it. Then today at work I get HORRIBLE news about a coworker, so what do I do? I go to the vending machine and each candy. I eat my emotions. I just need to push myself to start working out. I know I will benefit in every way possible. But how do I start? Any ideas?

Couch to 5K

I am starting couch to 5K tonight. I will give a recap tomorrow from work when I am bored out of my mind. But really I am going to stick to this for the next few weeks. I need to get back in shape and loose weight. Exercise I know is the best way. Everything I have issues with sleep, mood, anxiety, stress and body image will all get a little extra boost in a good way if I work out. So here I go.....

Yes that is the treadmill you see in the back ground folded up. But I just needed my Cold stone. LOL 
Have a great week!!!!

10 reunion

My high school 10 year reunion is tonight. And well I am not there. I feel sorta bad for not going but really I see the peeps I still care about and who I want to see. There are some people I do not care for seeing. The random run ins where you know you are both acting like you don't see the other person will not work tonight. Also I'm not drinking right now so how will my nerves every get calm enough to talk to people I don't really care how great their life is. Tonight I will be at home chilling with the hubs and baby. So MTHS class of 2000 happy 10 years! I promise I will see you at the 20.

Summer I miss you

Today is June 22 why is it all nasty out still? It is just depressing. I want that warm feeling on my skin when I walk outside. I want to smell summer. I want to take M for a walk and not worry getting rained on. Will we see Summer this year? Sun please come out and play for a bit. We need it!

I did it!

I went all day without complaining well kinda. The girl that sits next to me at work also joined the fun with me. We both watched each other and helped how to express the way we were feeling with out being negative. Now if eye rolling was not allowed we would have both done horrid but overall I think I did great. At the end of the work day I had only said 3 negative complaining things. That is GREAT for me. I'm going to try and keep this up. I feel better about the day overall not looking at one negative after another.

No complaining

I am reading a book right now. No need to mention the name it is horrible but I am finishing it to see if there is any point. LOL The chapter I read last night was about how she was trying to go 3 weeks with no complaining at all. ZERO NONE Then she went on about how she could never find a time to start because she either had therapy, or was going to meet up with friends that day. She knew they were all going to complain and how do you go to therapy without complaining.

Starting today at 9am (1 min ago) I am trying this. I am going to see how long I can go with no complaints. I am going to try and look at everything positive and not wine. I feel like I am always saying that I need more sleep, or don't feel good. So here is the new and positive me.

~Family pictures were fun. I'm still deciding if I want to post them on here or not. Have a great day and stay positive!

Coffee Fail

I bought a new pretty coffee pot over the weekend. It is one that uses the K cups. LOVE IT! I figure this way I will be saving money (over the long run) and also can control how much caffeine I am really having.

We did family pictures yesterday. We shall see how they turn out. It was very nice and sunny out but way to cold to be down by the water. Poor M was freezing and add teething with that and you get a cranky baby. I felt horrible for her. But I think we got a few good shots.

That's all for today :) I have real work to-do today. Not sure how that happen. I have the most pointless job of all time. But it pays the bills. Later!

Day 1 with no coffee

I did it! I didn't even really miss it that much. We shall see what tomorrow brings. I also ate pretty good today. Minus the cupcake I ate at 5 when the hubs when to work. OMG it tasted amazing. I noticed that food tasted way better today when I didn't eat ALLDAYLONG. I'm going to try and go all week with no coffee. I did have some tea today for a little caffeine kick. Have a good week!

Thankful Thursday

I feel like I am always negative. But trying to be positive. This is what I am Thankful for (no it's not Thanksgiving)

  • A healthy baby girl that looks at me and smiles or giggles when I come into the room
  • A husband that helps when I am feeling down
  • EBay (my new lover)
  • Friends who are there and ready to listen or kick back and laugh
  • Shopping (because it is the only thing I know that helps with my stress and worries)
This weekend we have big plans!! Saturday dinner with friends and shopping. Sunday we are planning on walking for breast cancer in the morning (ankle please do not kill me), then family pictures. I am praying it stays nice out. Please rain stay away.

6 Month Check up

M had her 6 month check up yesterday. She screamed bloody murder when the dr looked in her ears. I felt like a horrible mom. Then 5 mins later she got 3 shots in her thigh and was screaming again. The nurse was surprised how loud and high pitch she can get. She s growing great!!!! she weights 16.5 lbs and 26 inches long. For weight she is in 58% and length 78% long baby! Last night she took a nap with me around 5 then got up for a bottle at 9 and back to bed until 3 this AM. Sleepy girl she growing allot right now I think.

We got the go ahead to start with solids and a sippy cup. I had no clue she can start using a sipppy cup! So what do I do I order like 10 of them online and bought her one last night. She wasn't that big of a fan of it but I think it will take time.

Today... or lets say tomorrow

My diet is starting......
Here are my goals for week 1 

  1. Cut back on coffee. 1/2 if I do have it
  2. get at least 4 days of cardio in
  3. drink WAY more water 
  4. Watch what I eat and portions
I weight the most I have ever weighted in my life. DEPRESSING We are doing family pictures on Sunday and I am dreading it. Well here it goes. Wednesday will be my check in days. (Shot out to Jen I think you are my only reader)

I'm done

Being nice. I feel like I go out of my way to make people happy. Then what do I get in return? Crabby, mean, ripoff take advantage of me people. I do not believe in Karma. I am over Karma. Karma is over rated big time. I do many nice things for people and I get nothing really in return. Yes I do win a few times on a slot machine or in a drawing. But come on people please play nice.

I am big into coupon swapping right now. Pretty much to sum it up. You need a coupon I have, I send it to you and in return you send me a coupon I need. It is petty if you do not send the coupon in return or even better yet make the coupon sound better then it is. Do you really have no time but to rip people off. Yes I know I am complaining about $1 or so but it drives me nuts. I just cannot believe how someone can rip people off and just brush it off like no big deal. Its flat out RUDE and I'm over it. K

6 Months

Today my baby girl is 6 months old! Where has the time gone? I hate it when people say enjoy it now because time is going to fly. Well they are right but I still don't want to hear it! haha She is in a size 2 diaper and in clothing mostly size 3 months and some 6 month stuff. She has such a great and happy personality.  She has tried some solids but we are still working on that. She is going to be a very picky eater just like her momma.

I think it might be time to start planning her 1st birthday party! Cupcake theme here we come. *I am a planner and have to have everything planned out perfect. Or it will drive me nuts.

2 Trips in 1 day

I am in love obsessed with Coffee. I am really trying to break this obsession.
1. Not good for my anxiety and stress (everything stresses me out)
2. It is a very pricey habit.

I am a gold card member and have received 3 free drink coupons. That means just to get the coupons I have had to buy 45 drinks from Starbucks. NOT GOOD for my waist line, mental health or the checkbook. So how do I break this habit? I have tried making my own coffee at home. FAIL when I woke up that morning there was coffee all over the wall and counter. How did I do this? Well I think I added enough coffee grinds to supply enough coffee to a small county. No one ever taught me how to make coffee (thanks to everyone in my family for hating coffee). It can’t be that hard right? Off I go to Google tips on making coffee. How I am going to miss that pretty green straw every morning.

ETA: I just realized I had to buy 30 drinks before I became a cold card holder. OHMYDEAR that means I have bought 75 drinks GASP!!!!

Hello all!

Here it goes. My attempt to be a working mom, coupon freak and try to get in shape. I have allot on my plate but I think I can handle it. I will be sharing my life with you as being a new mom, a working one that is. I WISH I could be a stay at home mom but that just isn't going to work right now. I love coupons and getting a good deal or even better free! But where do I find the time? Also I have about 45 pounds I would love to loose. I joined weight watchers online a few weeks back (even paid for it) and haven't started yet. I guess I was thinking if I joined my weight would just disappear??? Well that didn't happen. Welcome and I hope you stick around.

p.s. My grammar and spelling both suck!
