Oh it’s March?

I don’t know about you but I feel like it was just Christmas. My little lady is 9 months old which is super depressing & my son will be 4 in 2 months! WHAT! We’ve been pretty busy in the past weeks! We have been able to get out of the house because the weather has been super nice!! 

Oh my word, I tried a new facial moisturizer at the beginning of last month & had my first allergic reaction to anything, that I can remember in my adult life, that is! That was horrible! So I switched back to my old trusty neutrogena! LOVE it! 

We got our back splash put up & finished. Got a new kitchen table, my husband built our son a bed, we’ve been fixing up our yard, and getting ready for spring! I can’t wait, we are going to be painting the outside of our house & opening our pool!πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 

I completely forgot to post about that time it was 30 degrees out, and crazy hair day at Mother’s Day out for my son. Well as my daughter was playing in her pack n play, my son & I stepped outside to spray his hair with hair paint! It was freezing so I shut the back door. (The door knob turns on the inside no matter if it’s locked or not)<–being a house we just purchased/remodeled & haven’t lived in too long, I didn’t know that!😳So needless to say, the sweet man that has a tree farm next to our acreage had to come & kick in my back door!πŸ˜²πŸ˜‚Holy heck that was a week, there was also a cat sitting on top of my engine a couple of days later when I started my car & I about died. So glad I realized it before it was hurt! 

March has been great, so far. My grandma was cleared & is in remission! She can now resume her daily routine!!! We were all so excited about that! So, of course, she wanted to watch my little gal while brother was at MDO & I cleaned a house! Oh she was so so happy about that! 6 weeks not being able to hold or pick up her grand babies, really took a toll on her! 

We are teething, crawling, walking with assistance, and pulling up on our own. Also, starting more chores for our son! He loves it, and got to spend his money on some Lincoln Logs! I love watching them learn things, and how they change day to day! They are amazing & Im so proud to be their mother! Truly blessed!

I hope you all had a great week, and continue on into the weekend!

Sickness for everyone 😷 

Yippppppeeeee! The sickness has hit our house. Just when I thought we got through without the flu! My husband had the flu the weekend before last, and now myself, and our kids have some kind of viral infection. At least it isn’t the flu! I don’t know about y’all, but the state we live in, the flu has become wide spread! STAY AT HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK! My husband was confined to our family room for a week, and he carried a Lysol wipe around with him so he could do things like, go to the bathroom or get a drink. My son isn’t going to be happy that he has to stay home tomorrow from his Mother’s Day out class but I’m not going to take the chance of getting someone sick. 

Stay well and have a great week, y’all!

Oh, momma!Β 

I’m seriously on the verge of tears right now. Please do not take this the wrong way because you don’t know me and you know nothing about my life other than what I write about….

I need some ME time! I’m about to lose my mind. That time is important for a stay at home mom, because sometimes we tend to lose ourselves. My grandmother had surgery the beginning of January, which is my only babysitter. My husband has two jobs, and when he’s not working he thinks he has to be doing something! That something is like cleaning the yard, or the barn, or working on trucks. So basically I have the kids ALL the time. Which, I love dearly. Don’t get me wrong, my kids are my life. I live for them. But like I said, I need some ME time. Even if that consists of a hot bath, alone! I don’t care what it is, 10 mins or 2 hours! As I write this I tear up because I feel like I’m just complaining & putting stress on other people by telling them how I feel. I just can’t win. 

I just need a vacation! Bad. 

Have a great weekend!

Finally!!!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽ‰

We bought this house in August & have been remodeling it since! Tomorrow will mark, and entire week since we have been moved in!!! I’m so in love with everything my husband has done! He has done everything by himself, besides some help from my dad & grandpa. My grandpa is a plumber & did some work, and my dad helped lay some flooring! So awesome to have such handy men in our family! I will post pictures soon! We are finishing the back splash in the kitchen today, then I will post! Now it’s time to buy little pieces of furniture that we need. Such a coffee table, end table, TV console, and a rug for the living room! Decorating is my favorite part. I love it. It’s like therapy for me. I’m also super cheap, so I try to find a bargain anyway I can!πŸ˜‚

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend, go enjoy your Saturday!☺️

Snow/Ice/Rain

Seriously, Oklahoma. Get it together! Y’all we had snow last week, some of the state of an ice storm this week & today is raining! I need to it be like 72 degrees outside! I hate being cold. And just so happens my birthday is smack dab in the middle of winter! In two weeks, I’ll be 29. Woot!πŸ€”

Anywho, update on my grandma. Surgery went well & she is doing as expected! She is still in ICU which is where I’d prefer her to be because she gets more care there than she would on another floor! ICU nurses are assigned 2 patients a shift & they have to report on those patients every hour! Even though she is annoyed with being bothered, it’s good for her. She’s 72, and was cut from her breast bone to belly button. I mean, come on, that’s serious. Her blood sugars go up & down, which needs to be under control before she can go home. So we will see. She will be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. So she still have a long recovery road. So please continue to pray for her!

My husband has been the only one in this house that hasn’t caught the cold. So I have yet to be back to the hospital since the day she had her surgery. But of course, we have facetimed her a million times. Not only is she my best friend & my go to person, she is that to my children. They LOVE her so much. My son has been asking to go to grandma & grandpas, and is so sad when I tell him we can’t go. But that will only be for a few more weeks! I just so miss talking to her everyday or going to her house. But I am thanking the good Lord, that I will be able to continue to do those things with her. He had watched over her, and continues too.❀

I’m going to go enjoy this lazy rainy day with my family. I hope you all had a great weekend! Until the next time!πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

January Favorites😍

So y’all, I’ve been using a new facial cleanser since the beginning of December. I absolutely love it! It is the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser from Kiehls. I got a sample of it & it has lasted me over a month! And I still haven’t used it all. I honestly have heard people talk about the brand but always thought it was expensive so I never checked it out. When I got the sample & loved it, I finally priced it! For 5.0 FL OZ tube, it is 22.50. Personally, I didn’t think that was too bad. I was expecting like 80-100 for some reason. My skin has been so soft & has helped with the pores on & around my nose. They weren’t visible to anyone but myself, but still.  

Another product I’m in love with is the Mahogany Balsam candle from Bath & Body Works. I burn candles like crazy. I also loved Holiday Sparkle but they seem to get rid of candles so fast, when I went back for it, it was gone!😑😩Now I need to go back & get more of this MB one cause I can’t find it online anywhere. OH & if you are interested B&BW is having a 50% off sale for certain candles right now. That’s where I got the most recent one, so I’m afraid they are removing that one too! 

I’m going to try to do a favorites each month! I look forward to sharing more with you!😘
