BB! (BoRiNg BloGgEr)

Well here I sit a week from my last post, still wondering what to write about today. I have totally neglected my blog the past few weeks and I am not proud of it.
But don't worry-- I still religiously stalk yours!! lol

So to catch you up a little bit-- here are my recently confessions, obsessions, rants, and raves.
And basically anything else I can think of while sitting at work!
here goes nothing.

Work has been going good. I am finally done with the training and on my own. I work Wednesday & Thursday evenings from 3pm-9pm and Friday days from 7am-2pm. and a occasional Sunday evening here and there when needed! I really like the job-- something about being out at the airport, I just feel right at home!
I hear a lot of moms say they don't understand how SAHM's do it. Well I couldn't disagree with you more. Yes, being at home with a child 24/7 is challenging and A LOT OF WORK but the stress and everything that a job, outside of your job at home-- holy cow. it's overwhelming! and I'm only part time!!!!!!!!
So here's a shout out to all you working mommies.. You must drink a lot of coffee! lol

This week starts week 32 of this pregnancy! HELLLLLOOOO Month 8!! and Do I feel the pains of an 8 month pregnant woman in 105 degree weather. My entire body aches! I waddle, and the best part about waddling you ask? When someone points it out to you that your waddling! Gee, thanks. I didn't notice!! lol
As you may have read on my facebook, I returned Layla's bedding-again. However, a new bedding has been purchased and it has officially made it outside of the package and on her crib. (don't worry, it's getting washed--I put it all on the bed just to take a picture. yeah, a lot of work for a silly picture!!!!!!)
It's so cute! I love love love it! I am so happy I listened to my mom! (you won't hear my say that very often)
we have a lot of work to do in the next 60 OR LESS days, so pictures should be posted shortly! My mom keeps teasing me that Layla is going to be a boy with all the trouble I've gone through with her bedding. Let me just tell you--if it happens, please come to my house and take the bedding down. I think I'd have a breakdown if I seen it when we got home from the hospital! lol

I've come to realize that no matter how much you do for some people, or how hard to try to keep them happy.. it's just impossible. At time I feel like I walk on egg shells around some people just to keep them happy and keep the peace. I wish some people could just be happy for me and not make every situation that occurs about them!
whew. had to get that off my chest.

anyways.
have you seen the coupon ad in the paper for steak n' shake lately?? OMG. If i would let myself I would eat there for every meal. Chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, burgers and cheese fries for lunch, and chili 5 way with a shake for dinner. ugh. starving!!!! This working til 9pm thing is going to be hard. My dinner tonight was a bagel. Yum!

I confess that I feel more insecure with myself right now than I ever have in my life. Even when I was 30lbs heavier when I was pregnant with Landon. I'm worried I will never be OK with what my sweet innocent little babies have done to my body!

I confess that my house has taken a beating lately. Landon's messes are getting bigger, I have no energy to clean, our decorations from waist down have been put up or broken so our house is incredibly bare, with nearly all white walls on the lower level. I need a interior decorator who is also a maid... Any volunteers? don't all jump at once. Apply within...

Have I mentioned lately how much I miss my husband. He worked all day Friday- all night Friday, Saturday night around 8pm he got called into work for the homicide and he has been at work ever since. It's Sunday evening. Waaahh! Being a wife of a police officer is hard work!


See what you get when I have a free moment at work and I have 10,000 things on my mind.
A bunch of mumbo jumbo! don't judge. just hang on for the ride! ha!

Weekend Wrap Up!

Friday night we had a nice relaxing night at home. Dane finished painting Layla's room and we ordered Applebee's togo.
btw, the girl who works car side Togo thinks her job is the most difficult job in the world. I wanted to tell her I did it for almost 4 years, to chill. but I didn't. I let her take her time, charge me for things I didn't order or receive, then let her fix it all. lol
Anyways, Here is a sneak peek at Landon & Layla's room as you're walking upstairs. I promise, that is still the tape on the wall and not a blue border around her room. :)
We matched the paint with the bedding the night it came in the mail.... and guess what. I'm returning it.
Yep, don't judge me. lol
Friday night was our first attempt of Landon sleeping in his big boy bed. (well, 2nd big boy bed) I still didn't have a bed rail so I used the mattress from Layla's crib and sat it next to his bed and pushed his toy story table up against it. It worked wonders! Although he didn't sleep the entire night, 9pm-2am was a good enough start for us!

Saturday morning Dane had to work so Landon & I decided to do a little shopping with my mom. Landon just adores Grandma Debbie! It's so cute!! We had lunch at Olive Garden, YUM! and then headed to Babies R Us. I blame my mom for my change of heart on the baby bedding....and I'm not 100% sure if the bedding is going to match the paint that is on the walls.... soooo, I might have one upset hubby this weekend.... lol thank god he is patient with me. :) ALSO,
I'm very proud of my couponing lately. I got a big box of Pampers sensitive wipes for only $6. Original price was $13. go me! and finally got a bed rail to go on Landon's bed!! Which must have been exactly what he needed. He went to bed somewhat willingly Saturday night. He whined a bit but I told him he had to sleep next to his fishy and he was OK with that & was out within 5 minutes and slept from 8pm-6am! Sucked getting up that early, but I was so excited for him that I didn't care what time it was!!!

Sunday I had to work & Dane and Landon went to the pool & had a guys day.
Sunday afternoon we heard that news that Dane's grandma had passed away. It has been a rough 24 hours for the Luke family. We are headed home to be with his family this evening. Dane and his grandma Marge were very close when Dane was growing up, so I know the next couple days are going to be extremely hard. Even with all the hormones, I know I have to keep it together for him!

Hope everyone had a good weekend, please keep the Luke family in your thoughts the next couple days!! <3

Confession Friday!!

*I confess Layla's room is PINK!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so so so excited! We Dane finally got the first coat on last night!! We chose a lighter.. it's pretty but with nothing done to the room---it looks like pepto bismol all over the walls. lol
pink is really a scary color when your use to blues and greens!!!!
*I confess I am ecstatic to be off work today!! Pool day??? I think so!
*I confess we got a phone call from my father in law last night telling us that Dane's grandma isn't doing good. Please add her to your prayer list. <3
*I confess I am not ready to be waking up every 2 hours in the middle of the night.. I have about 68 days left of good sleep.... waaahh!!!
*I confess that Landon dropped something yesterday and said "shit". Ugh, I'm so mad at myself!!!!!!!!!!! :(( I didn't say anything to him-So I'm hoping that if I quit saying it, he will forget.
*I confess we are on the hunt for one MAYBE two new vehicles!! exciting and frustrating!!!
*I confess we have boat fever. Even with a 2 year old, and 1 on the way.. we want one BAD!!!!!! Who said our babies can't be water babies?!?! :)
*I confess that all this talk about NKOTBSB.. really makes me miss *Nsync!! I was never a Backstreet Boy fan, my sister was the NKOTB fan.. I miss me some good ole JT!!! When will the *Nsync reunion be??????
*I confess that the last month or so I have been a extremely lazy cook! I haven't made anything new or creative.. Sorry hubby, I promise this is just a phase that I will get over!
*I confess I get really aggravated with people when you tell them their kids are cute and their response is "I know". Yes, I know everyone thinks their kid is the cutest kid on earth, but I feel like you're being rude by not saying thank you! If I knew that girl a little better, I probably would have told her she was rude. lol
What do you have to confess about this week???
Hope everyone has a great weekend.. hopefully we will have some nursery pictures to post SOON!!!!
Cya!

(better late than never) Weekend Wrap Up!

Never thought I would be so happy to see a Tuesday!

Thursday was my first day at the new job and I've worked worked worked ever since! For those of you that have known me awhile know I use to work at the St Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia/Sauget before I had Landon. After having him I decided staying home with him was the best thing for both of us! I loved my job there, but they weren't willing to work with me on my hours so I quit. Here we are 2 years later and I got a job back at the airport, but at another location. Trust me, I wish my old job was hiring!! I did love it there and I loved my lovely side kick Dee Dee!!
Anyways, this job is suppose to be part time, and I still haven't been told my hours. I'm just coming in random hours right now for training.. but I did some figuring in my head on the hours they need covered and what work with my schedule--and they don't mix 100%. and that puts me at 5 days a week and 34 hours. Waaaait.... I thought this was PART TIME??? We'll see...

Friday after work Dane and I decided to attempt to take Landon to his first movie at the theater. He loves Cars so I thought he would do great.. WRONG. He watched the previews, which ran 25 minutes after what was suppose to be the start time and sat for maybe 2 minutes. He was horrible once the movie started. He yelled MATTTEERRRRR at the TV every time they showed Mater.. It was very distracting for the other kids in the theater, so we left. I might attempt that again in a few years!

Saturday we did a little shopping & got Landon a new big boy bed! He only had his toddler bed for a couple months but he is just a squirmy little guy! He rolls soo much in his sleep and was rolling off the bed every time he slept on it. So we upgraded to a twin! We'll see how it goes. He hasn't slept in it yet because I've forgotten to get the bed rail from Target not once, but twice! Gr!!
Saturday evening the Walter's came over to hang out! Landon is getting a little better with sharing his toys, but geezz. I can't wait for the day that I don't have to stop him and tell him that Stella is allowed to play too! Ayi Yi Yi!

Sunday morning Dane and Landon headed to the pool & I headed to work.. Should be a sin to work on Sundays!! After work I headed to target for the 2nd attempt to get Landon a bed rail. Remembered it about half way home! O well, another excuse to go back!

Landon is doing good at Nana Bear's. It's the drop off that absolutely kills me. Day 1 was OK. We both cried. Day 2 was a little better, I didn't cry--Landon did for a minute. Day 3 was by far the worst. I told him he was going to Nana's on the way there.. bad idea. He cried the entire 20 minute drive, and so did mom. I was a mess!! I really hope this gets easier!!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I'm headed to the baby doctor today... not to excited to get on the scale.. I just know it's going to be BAD NEWS!!!!
Bump update tomorrow!
C~ya!

Confession Friday

I confess it is Thursday night and I am starting my confessions. It's been a hectic last 24 hours and I don't want to miss my weekly confession.

I confess Tuesday afternoon after my car broke down, I guess I just had too much time on my hands because I started browsing for jobs.
Well I got a call back within 30 minutes of posting my resume to someone and I got an interview Wednesday morning and my first day was today!
I'm still in shock. I'm very lucky they were willing to hire someone who is 7 months pregnant. God is good and mom is broke. So it worked out! It's definitely what our family needs right now! It's part time and will hopefully work around my families needs! fingers crossed this works out!

I confess I cried like a baby dropping Landon off at daycare. He hasn't gone since December. He's been attached at my hip ever since then. It was hard on both of us for me to leave, definitely more on me! But I know he is with someone that loves him just as much as her own.. Nana Bear truly is a gift from God!!

I confess as hard as it was to drop Landon off, He was soooo excited when I picked him up! and we laid on the floor at home and talked about his day for probably 15 minutes. Not a lot made sense, but he told me he played with a dog, seen a cat and threw rocks at the cat? LOL I told him throwing rocks at kitties wasn't nice, and he said Oh, not nice. so innocent! :)

I confess for dinner Landon is eating a hot dog and corn because I'm too lazy to actually cook anything tonight! Sorry baby, I'm glad you aren't too picky!

I confess I was getting kind of sick of my car recently, and after getting the rental car I did, and then getting my car back.. I realize how much I love it! ha! so long hamster car! (ps. PTL for extended warranties!!!)

I confess I am stoked about playing bunko on my birthday!!! Still have no idea how to play, but hopefully I'll catch on easily! Maybe I should look up how to play so Sarah isn't trying to explain it to 11 other girls at once!

I confess as soon as my fat face is gone, I'm going to make a drastic change with my hair. Get ready!
I confess I have had more problems with ordering Layla's bedding that I could have ever imagined. I mean seriously. We finally decide on a bedding, and its sold out everywhere. then I find it on 1 website, and I order it ASAP. Well a week goes by and they never took my payment, never processed the other or anything. so I cancelled. Found it on eBay, brand new for just a few dollars more than I was going to pay for it at the last place. Buy it NOW! Payment sent, and received. I get a email saying it wouldn't ship til end of August!!!!!!!!!! WHAT! Do you people not understand my baby is due in SEPTEMBER!!! So i email them asking what the delay was and if it was out of stock, I would look into other bedding's that was available & ready to ship, like yesterday. What do they do??? Send me an email saying my request to cancel my order is being processed. WHAT!!! When did I say I wanted to cancel my order???? I asked a question, PLEASE ANSWER IT! Ahhhh!!! The more problems I get, the uglier this baby bedding is looking!!! lol
Well I get a response back this morn(friday) and it says my order has been cancelled, sorry the mistake was on their part--but since they already cancelled the order and the bedding is out of stock until 7/30 they can't reorder that bedding for me.
Ahhhhhhh... So here I am, back to square 1. No bedding for our daughter! Waahh!!
I'm off to my 2nd day of work. Wish me luck! :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

my 1st experience with coupons

So I've watched all the coupon shows, added the groups to facebook, printed out coupons and have many used 5 at the most. probably with a total savings of $4, if I'm lucky.
sad, right?
Well something lit a fire under my butt this week because I've been looking up deals on things we need at home like crazy. I've found a few, others I'll keep looking for!
But I decided to go out on my first trip as a coupon'er! With only 2 stops to make, Target & Home Depot!
Landon and I got up this morning and he must have known momma was on a mission. He was more than willing to help get himself dressed and his shoes on. (usually I get one shoe on and spend 7 minutes chasing him around the house to get the other shoe on)
After a very interesting, stressful trip- (i'll explain later why it was stressful)
here is what we came home with:
I haven't added up what my total was before coupons,
but I can tell you I got all of this for about $27.
For you master coupon'ers that might not seem like a good deal to you..
but in my eyes (AND Danes) I rock today!! haha
And I bet you're sitting at the computer waiting to hear why this "fun" experience, turned into a extremely stressful one....
Leaving HD, I strap Landon in his car seat and start to head for Target.. I pull out of my parking spot and put my car in drive and it shifts hard.. like jerks the entire car. WTF was that. NO clue. push on the gas and my car is barely moving. I had to FLOOR my car to get it to go 2mph. OK, freaking out a little. Do I stop? No, I keep going- there are cars everywhere and I was scared.
So I turn right onto Lindbergh thinking it was my AC blaring that was causing it to stall. So I pull up to the red light at Lindbergh & Lemay and shut off my car while I'm sitting at the red light. BIG MISTAKE. Car isn't starting. Seriously?? Why me! I wanted to cry, yell, punch my car. but I was too worried about my baby in the back and him overheating. So I sit there for a minute or two while the light is still red and try again. After a couple trys, it starts. WHEW! Light turns green and I go to give it gas and again, doesn't want to move. I am basically forcing my car to drive. I make it to the next light and turn into the mall. Shut it off and sit as long as I could before sweat was literally on every inch of my body. yum right?
Start it again with the AC on this time and it starts up fine, shifts fine, and drives perfect. Except my check engine light is on. So I call my mom (who works at the dealership where we bought the car from) and she tells me to bring it in when I get back to Waterloo. You would think I would go right then, nope! told you I was on a mission. I wasn't going home with all these coupons! so I went to target and then to Sunset. LOL
So here I sit with no car because they were too busy to get to it today.
pity party of 1, your table is ready!
But we made it safely, didn't have to push the car AND I scored some pretty sweet deals. So I can't complain too much right now....... when we find out whats wrong with the car, that will probably be a different story!!

Weekend Wrap Up

Well it definitely feels like I just did a weekend wrap up..
My weekend obviously went by way too fast!!

Friday night we went to the Millstadt Fireman's picnic. Landon of course LOOOOVED the rides again! But $2 for one ride. geesh, I guess I'm just cheap! At least the cars seemed to go around a few more times unlike the Red Bud picnic! lol
After riding the rides we decided to play games! I definitely like bringing these home more than silly stuffed animals!
Saturday we hung out at the pool and relaxed at home. Saturday night Landon and I ran to Wal-Mart to find a home for his new friends.
Meet Manny and Mater.
So far they have been staying in Landon's room.. He sneaks up and gets a little too curious sometimes, but he's learning that the fish need to stay in their home to survive.
We had a low key night, Dane grilled steaks outside & we watched movies. If your in the mood for grilling steaks anytime soon, pick up this marinade...
we put our steaks in this in the morning, and OH MM GEE! They were amazing!!!! I can honestly say I don't ever want a steak from home without it soaking in this before!! I'm a huge dipper and my steak didn't need anything. No ranch, bbq sauce, steak sauce, NOTHING! Yumm!! And it was less than $3 from Wal-mart!
Sunday was my nephew Jayden's birthday party at the park in Dupo. It was miserably hot, but he had a great party!!! After the party we went home and took a nice long nap in the ac then headed back to Dupo for dinner at my dads! Again, as I've mentioned before.. he is the best damn cook EVER!!!! After eating as much Chicken Ala King as we could, we headed home and stopped for a much wanted coconut sno cone!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Only 79 days to go!! :)

Friday, July 8, 2011

Confession Friday

Before I start today I have to say one little thing...
Happy 3rd Birthday to my nephew, Jayden!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Now on to my confessions.....
*I confess Landon is downstairs watching A Goofy Movie. Ever seen it?? I LOVED this movie when I was little!!!!
*I confess the baby bedding we have decided on has been in the online shopping cart for 2 days. I can't seem to hit the buy button because it isn't the one I LOVE, just like... But the one I love is over triple the amount. Waahh! Maybe I'll love the one I like once I get it...?
*I confess I've done a few cuts and colors the past couple days and I really miss doing hair.
*I confess Landon slept upstairs in his bed 2 times this week. the 1st night he did great, he slept til 4 then came to bed with us. and the 2nd night was a lot harder on mom. I cried. lol and he was in bed with us around 1am. It's a start!
*I confess that no matter what you tell people, they are always going to have something negative to say back. I just wish some people could be happy for you for once, Instead of naming off a list of negatives when I tell them something that I want. I'm a big girl, if it's a mistake--let me learn from it!
*I confess everyday I ask Landon if wants a sister, and if he is excited to meet his sister, and everyday I get the same response. "No, I'm fine." bahaha I still don't think he gets it yet!
*I confess that Sarah has came up with the idea of a blogger's bunco and I couldn't be more excited to get together with all the girls!!!!! I'm a bunco virgin, but any excuse to get away for a few hours sounds like a blast to me!!! :)
*I confess I went to wal-mart yesterday to get my nephews birthday present and Landon wanted to play with the toy while I was checking out and I told him that it was Jayden's birthday present that we had to pay for it now. and the cashier had the nerve to say to me "you know, its a lot easier to shop for other kids when you don't bring your kids along with you" NO SHIT LADY, would you like to baby sit for me while I go shopping?? Yes, I said that to her! I just looked at her like she was retarded. and he continued to check me out. dumbass!
*I confess if you were wondering where I will be all weekend, go to the Millstadt Fireman's picnic and look by the car rides... I guarantee that's where I will be. Anyone want to join???
*I confess my BFF is almost done in her pregnancy (33 weeks) and Kendra finds out what she is having in 18 days!!!! Is it just me, or is everyone else's pregnancy going by fast, and mine is standing still?!?!? seems that way to me at least!
*I confess I'm done blogging for the day. go away rain clouds--me & Landon are getting OUT today!!!!
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!!
82 days to go!!!!!!

Kinda Obsessed!!!!!!!

Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera

Delicious!!!!

So many of you know and have heard me say before that the only time I eat ice cream is while I'm pregnant. True story.
Maybe, just maybe I will have it once a year when I'm not pregnant. I don't know why, I just don't ever have a craving for it.
And I guess I have taught my child that too because Landon won't go anywhere near it either!
Anyways, last night I went to dinner with the girls at Chili's in Fairview & afterwards they were all talking about the new Orange Leaf place in O'Fallon. I said of course I'll go, not knowing what to expect but I love ice cream lately. I have never been to Cold Stone, and my BFF always talks about going.. but there is no way Cold Stone compares to this place..
I have to go again, like today! haha
We walk in and this is what you see..

and this is how it works:

Step 1: Pick a flavor & fill 'er up!
Try all of them!
Tart
Vanilla
Chocolate
Honeydew
Taro
Green Tea
Kiwi
Strawberry
Mango Pomegranate
Mint Chocolate
Coffee Lover
Raspberry
Lemon
Orange
Peach
Green Apple
Lychee
Passion Fruit
Watermelon
Cherry
Dole Pineapple
Blueberry
Peanut Butter
Cheese Cake
Cookies & Cream
White Chocolate
Banana, Coconut
Cake Batter
Red Velvet
Pistachio
Chocolate Raspberry
Yes, these are flavors of ice cream.
I tried the chocolate, coconut and wedding cake batter. Delish!


Step 2: Start Piling!
We've got oodles of toppings:
Kiwi, Pear, Mochi, Pecan, Peach, Honey, Mango, Banana, Granola, Coconut, Nuts, Pineapple, Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, Honey Dew, Jelly Bellies, Cranberries, Watermelon, Oreos, Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, Brownie, Gummy Bears, Dark Chocolate, Captain Crunch, Sunflower Seed, Dried Fruits, Graham Cracker, M&M's, Sprinkles, Marshmallows, Butterfinger, Reeses Cups.
sounds amazing, right?!?!
Step 3: Weigh & Pay
Enjoy, savor, devour, inhale, etc!
After you've made your one-of-a-kind dessert, simply put it on the scale and pay by the ounce.
Take my word for it...
this isn't something you want to miss out on!!!!!!!!!

baby bedding crisis

OK, so here I am 12 weeks out from my due date.
12 weeks sounds like a long time. Until I say 84 days.
Only 84 days until my due date!!!!!
Time is going by so fast, and we are moving in slow motion.
I still haven't found a nursery set that I have thought
"Yes!! This is the one"
I have a couple that I like, even that I LOVE.. I'm just having a hard time committing.
This is where you come in.
I need your opinion, your ideas, anything you have to share!
Send it my way!
I love animal print.
not so hip on the actual animal being on the bedding like Landon's bedding was. but I do love giraffe's.
I want it to be bright.
Pinks, Oranges, Purples, Yellows, etc.
I've tried the websites where you can create the bedding on your own.. but I can't seem to keep it under $400 for 4 pieces. thats RIDIC!!!!!!
keep in mind:
our nursery furniture is cherry wood and brown.
1.
2.
3.

4.5.6.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weekend Wrap Up!

It has been a long weekend!
I had to sit here and think of what we did Friday.
and now I'm asking myself how could I forget!
Durr!
Friday night we hung out with the Walter's at their house in Red Bud.
DiCarlo's, Sno Cones, Brownies, Stella.. a couple of my favorite things!!! It was a great night!
The kids had car races in the drive way! they were loving it!!
Then duty called, baby needed to be fed so they had to take a break from the races... So cute! :)

Saturday we got up early and had breakfast at Burger King & Landon played in the play area for about a half hour then we ventured out for more pointless hours of searching for baby bedding. found NOTHING, again! sigh. I'm beginning to get stressed out about the nursery being NO WHERE close to being done. Yes, I have 12 weeks til our due date.. but that's if she decides to come on time! Once we got home we decided to go relax in the pool. It was SO incredibly hot outside and the pool felt amazing!!!!! then later that night daddy went into work so it was mommy & Landon movie night! We made Landon's favorite, hot dogs and mac & cheese and snuggled up watching Cars.

Sunday we decided to take Landon fishing for the first time.

He knew our goal was to get a fish, and he knows they live in the water.. but I don't think he realized we were going to actually catch the fish and bring it to land.
His face was priceless when we reeled the line in and this little guy was on the end!
thanks to the storms Sunday night- our plans were cancelled so we decided to have a relaxing family night at home.
Monday was 4th of July.
yep, I borrowed one of Layla's bows for the picture. lol
We spent the afternoon at my sisters and headed home around 4 for a much needed nap.
Once we all woke up from our nap we played in the backyard and Landon even let Daddy set off a couple fireworks, but I kid you not.. the second it started to get dark outside, Landon said NO MORE and wanted inside! We weren't allowed to go outside or even look out the window at the fireworks! And let me tell you, people in our subdivision set off some AWESOME fireworks. So we watched the fireworks on TV. Landon seemed to like those, he said they were "pretty" Shortly after Landon was sleeping & mommy and daddy got to watch a movie!
It was a great weekend!!!!!! Dane was off most of it, so we got to enjoy family time together!!!
