Love is in the air...



finally! Our long awaited Valentines date...
The boys were sick the week of Valentines day and last week I was sick
but this week...
love was in the air! :)
Vanilla and I finally went out on a date!
We haven't been out on a date ONCE since law school started in August.....
yup!... August!
It's hard to go out when we've had a newborn...
I don't dare leave my little babe with a 13 year old girl. BUT I do dare leaving both of my kids with Heather and Chris. THANK YOU! They were saints from on high to watch our kids while we went out tonight.
It was SOOO fun to go out with just Aaron and I! I didn't know what to do at dinner with just he and I. I kept wondering where the paper menue and crayons were. There was no sobbing tears at our booth. I never once said, "1...2....3.... alright your going to the car!" durring dinner.
It really was great!
Thanks babe!

I think I’ll leave work early today... Or maybe I’ll take a “long lunch” this afternoon... I’m going to come into work a little later today... Seriously what happened to those awesome excuses?!...I woke up to Everest in his room with his blankets, toys, and mittens covered in poop. I wanted to shut the door and hope that somehow it would clean it’s self up. So I did! Ha! ... Aaron came home from class and scrubbed until his finger nails turned brown. {grosse! Why do I say things like that} I’ve faced the facts that being a mom is a ton of work. It’s by far the hardest thing I have ever done or will ever do. I feel like I clean up all day long and at the end of the day toy’s are everywhere and dishes are piling up. It’s so easy to sit back and see all these cute moms and think they all have it together and that there houses are always tidy and clean. When the cold hard truth in my house is.... Mommy hood is freaking HARD! Six out of the seven day’s a week I claim the title “single mom”. So if you find me constantly with a twitch in my eye and dark circles under them and, my hair in a bun... you’ll know why. It’s funny... as I sit here ragging on being a mom in my head I am rebounding with reasons why I love it at the same time. But, I'm not going to go on and on about why I love bing a single mom tonight because... tonight I want to be Eeyore and rain on the mommy hood parade! Boo-Ya! Oh, and tonight Aaron and I were suppose to go out on our “romantic dinner for two”... instead the boy’s are sick! uh! So... it’s another night of homework and nursing the kids back to health! Debbie downer is me and I am Debbie downer

Aaaand i'm not sharing...



Long before Aaron ever came along... I had a Valentine.
Always and forever a box of chocolates I found on my pillow from my dad. I never once had a sad or depressing Valentines day because I knew I was always someones valentine!
love you Dad!

Just me and you!

I love standing back and watching you be YOU! You have enough energy to wrap around the moon and the sun 500 times over and over again. You are a boy of little words and that's why you are silent but deadly! { Just like your D} Your way or the highway! {Also, just like your D} You are sweet and soft and a HUGE tease! I LOVE the way you say bus and I LOVE all 26 pounds of your tinny little two year old body!
love, Mom XOXO

You'll never look at your food the same way...

Truly and honestly you HAVE to watch this documentary!
It is journalism at it's BEST!
Let me back up a little bit...
It all started a year ago when I read this book Food Rules. It completely changed the way I viewed food and changed the way I grocery shopped. Than I saw this documentary ...
dun, dun, dun...
Now I know the truth about where our food is coming from in the grocery stores. This movie was so informative and I honestly want everyone to see it. So do yourself a HUGE favor and watch this movie. Now Aaron and I are organic, free roaming, grass fed... FANS!

Did you know your tomatoes in the grocery store are ripened from ethylene gas?

Did you know that the chicken you most likely had for dinner tonight has NEVER seen sunlight?

Did you know that corn seed has pesticides inside the actual seed itself? {Genetically Modified Organism}

Night furry!


It was same day "surgery". It sounds all dramatic and scary but really it was just to get tubes put into my Sladie babies ears. This little bubba-gump of mine has had an earache almost non-stop since October. The final straw was over Christmas break when I thought I was medicating Slade for yet another earache. When on the tenth day of his antibiotic he broke out in hives all over his body..ALLLL over his little body. I take him into the dr's to find out it was an allergic reaction to the antibiotic... and come to find out he still had two, TWO earaches. I felt horrible for him. All this time had past and I had no idea he was in pain.{ I had NO idea that an antibiotic couldn't work!} Aaron and I named him "night furry!" because he was literally that. All of Christmas break he was up every hour in the night. I became a frightening beast with dark circles under my eyes. Anyway... All is well now! He has tubes and no more earaches! Love you Sladie! XOXO
