coffee is a diuretic

i got this lovely in the mail today. and- oh my. he is so delicious. i could stare at this cover all day.
 i just wish that my cousin in new york was here to read this with me. i swear all we do when we get together is read up on our celebrity gossip {yay- kourtney k. is prego again!} and make trips to walmart. rhea- hurry and come visit me i miss you!!

i can't believe tomorrow is december 1st.
ps- hi erin ;)



i have a 7 year old. it's so weird to think she is that old. 7 years ago my life changed so drastically and i wouldn't change a thing. i love how she is. i love that she loves me. and i love that she is amazing. she is so smart and talented. she acts like a 13 year old.

she is so sassy. she argues like crazy but knows when to stop. i love more than anything that i have a best friend for life. she is genuinely so sweet. and i couldn't have asked for a better big sister. she loves the crafts i make for her.

every night we watch elf or the santa claus. i love that she loves the holidays like i do. i can't wait to see the amazing person she is growing up to be.
stop growing up so fast little girl.
love you more than the most

the morning of her birthday the first thing she said was- are there presents for me? she ran out of bed so excited. so this is her just wake up out of bed look. ooooh man i love her


jagger is 2

my little babe is 2. i can't belive it. he is so dang cute and i have the hardest time thinking that my baby is already hitting those dreadful 2's. he loves his daddy and sissy. i'm just there when he needs someone to hold him :) i'm ok with it though. i told hubs i need to have just one more little boy so i can see what people are talking about when they say mommas boys. i don't think i'll ever know what that means.

his favorite thing is to watch eeeeffff. {elf} and elmo. he'll watch them over and over. he loves his blankey and bottle. it's awful that he's 2 and still has his baba. i just feel so bad taking it away from him- it's his total comfort. one day i'm hoping he just doesn't want it anymore. wishful thinking? maybe.

he's one of those kids that when he talks only i know what he's saying. he's got his own language. he totally mumbles things and says them so funky. i know he'll figure out how to talk normal one day :) and he's nowhere near being potty trained. kennedy was 2 years and a month and had it down. jagger's got another good year. it's good motivation for not having another little babe while he's still in diapers ;)

i love this little boy so much. i can't imagine our lives without him. he's made me so happy.

love you jagger krew
more than you'll ever know


i am so thankful for hot baths

on freezing cold nights

theeeee best time of my day :)

all she wants for christmas is her two front teeth

her two front teeth, her two front teeth-
yesterday- {11.12} we went to ry's moms for dinner. kennedy has had her two front teeth loose for almost a year. i'm not even exaggerating. they got to the point they were so gross. she could move them back and forth with her tongue. she used to have a gap in the middle and she pushed her right one over when she was playing with them one day and got it stuck so the gap went over to the right side.
she totally looked like a hillbilly.
last night she was wrestling with her grandpa and bumped it. it started to bleed a little bit. i told her- 'lets just pull it!!' and she freaked. she is such a baby when it comes to pulling her teeth out. i had bribed her with almost everything and she still wouldn't let me touch it.
i told her to open her mouth so i could get a paper towel on it to stop the bleeding.
and- bam. i just pulled it out. she was so mad at me. she looked in the mirror and then was even more mad because she said she looked ridiculous with her other tooth hanging there and said she hated the way it looked.  she started to cry even more so i said let me just look at it. i put my finger on it and- bam. pulled the second one out. then she was fine.
the tooth fairy came to our house last night :)
that tooth fairy also forgot to take the teeth so kennedy thought she was extra lucky she got to keep the teeth and got sparkly dollars.
it's so perfect for this time of year.
i think she looks so grown up with those teeth out.
my babe is so dang cute.

and i made her these lovelies-
she said i should sell them to everyone so i could buy a HUUUGE house.
i like that idea :)
etsy- here i come.
HA who am i kidding?

happy sunday

i have so much to do today. {thank you pinterest} and i think i'm going to be brave and go to h&m. i just can't handle it. i want to get the kids clothes sooo bad. you would think that with their birthdays just 2 weeks away i would save what i buy and give it to them then. nope. i am the worst at that. hubs can't stand it. we went shopping yesterday and i have this obsession with wrapping paper { which the best friend does too- someday we're going to be so rich off of selling it } i was in the wrapping paper aisle forever. even worse- it was all half off. i came out with only 2 rolls that time. he told me if it was that easy to make me that happy he would take me to the wrapping paper store everyday ;) i told hubs i can't wait to wrap something. he just smiles and shakes his head. he's such a trooper with my shenanigans.
and- now we're off to go CHRISTMAS shopping!! thank you walmart for your layaway. now my kidlets won't be getting their gifts early ;)


i'm thankful for our veterans

today i am so thankful for the veterans out there. past and present. especially my cousins, carmen and rhea. carmen is currently overseas and i think about him every single day. i love them both and thank them for what they've done for our country. freedom isn't free. i am so grateful to be living here and have the freedoms i do. i have such a big mouth i don't think i would last very long in another country where freedom of speech isn't implemented. haha :)

today was {11.11.11} i thought something cool would happen. it didn't. 11 has been my lucky number for as long as i can remember. my whole family is always seeing 11.11 except my dad who thinks we're just weirdos.
it was a good day nonetheless ;)

i have a new addiction. pinterest. i don't know where it's been all my life. but it's not a good thing. i seriously could sit at the computer for hours. i have a looooong list of things to make tomorrow.
and i cant.wait.

happy weekend!!


i am thankful

every november i remember after thanksgiving that i want to blog at least every other day something i'm thankful for. it's the 9th so i'm definitely ahead of schedule ;) better late than never. today my best sent me this picture-

i love it. she is the best.
i am SO thankful for being her best friend.
she just gets me.
she genuinely listens to me.
she has always been there for me.
..and we have so much fun- even when she makes me go spray tanning
with her and i wake up looking like a blotchy pumpkin.
it's creepy how comfortable we are around each other.
why go spray tanning alone when you can have the bestie
standing right next to you to talk to.
i love you christina. you're the best


under the mistletoe

       i can't wait to take kennedy to school tomorrow then straight to target. why? because this came out!!

yep i'm that girl that changes all the presets on november 1st to fm100.kosy106.5.and b98.7
and just waits for all the christmas music to start.
2 months just isn't enough!
and oh man i love me some justin bieber.
                                                              hubs hates it. poor guy.
i married scrooge. he says he's never loved the holidays.
i just keep telling myself that one year i'll convince him how amazing they really are!
