Ten Things Motherhood Taught Me...

I could not resist this linkup with Erin over at Simple Purposeful Living.  So, here we go with lots of pictures cuz, well, I love pictures.

  1.  When they are young, they can really capture your heart & not let go.

  2.  The being tucked into bed every night was VERY necessary.

  3.  Never borrow anything to a teenager cuz chances are you won't get it back in the same condition or get it back at all.

  4.  You'll miss the hand holding in the parking lots.

  5.  Moms cry in their beds at night too.

  6.  Sticking to your guns & following through with consequences are hard.

  7.  Sometimes, a little space is good.

  8.  I don't remember ANYTHING from math.

  9.  Tough love does work & they will know who to come to when things are tough.

  10.  Giving birth does not make you a mother, being there makes you a mother.

Love you, Kaylee Jo
& Regan Emma!


  1. You have definitely learned a lot that rings true to me too! I can definitely relate and I sure don't remember my math either!

    1. Oh, math is the worst! I hated it when I was in school & I hate it now. Blah! Ha, ha!

  2. Love this post. Every single one is on point.

    1. Awe, thanks! I thought so too. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
