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!

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!😘

It’s been awhile!

So my last post was me underneath a dryer, getting my hair done. Yeah needless to say it turned out green & im going to try to go back to my original girl, who just happens to be my ex sister in law. Which was why it was suggested to me to try someone else. And well like I thought, that went down the pooper! Anywho, I could give two cruds about hair right now. I’m in a funk y’all. Anywho, Christmas has came & gone. It was amazing. We had Christmas in our new house, even though our move in date was delayed. It was an absolute blessing! New Years has came & gone. My grandparents kept our babies & let us have a night out. Which ended, sober & in bed before 1:30! We are real party animals!πŸ˜‚

So like I said I’m in a funk. I keep praying about it. I’ve dealt with anxiety my entire life. Sometimes, I hardly notice it & other times it’s like inevitable. So in my previous post I wrote about my grandmother having cancer. Well she went to the doctor on Wednesday & they found another spot. Which means the doctor wants to do surgery to remove it all, which means taking out some of her stomach & intestines. She will be cut from her breast bone to her belly button. She’s in way better shape health wise than she was when she was diagnosed, so the doctor is more comfortable now. I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this, but my grandmother & I are super close. She’s my best friend. The one I turn to for everything. I talk to her atleast 5 times a day, and we text none stop. I tell her legit everything! She is everything to me. She is in her 70’s and I just can’t lose her, y’all. I can’t. A part of me would literally die inside. I’m so scared. I’ve cried everyday since Wednesday. Without her or anyone else knowing, not even my husband. My anxiety is through the roof. Sometimes I can’t even think. I do not want her to have to continue her chemo shots every month, she hates them. They make her sick for days & so weak. So this surgery is the alternative. I know she’s scared but she has a strong relationship with God. She is so strong. I’m trying to be strong, and I am. Until I’m alone, and I just cry & cry. I’ve even done it once in front of my children, which I shouldn’t. But sometimes I can’t help it, and the little arms around my neck, make me feel alittle better.

We would appreciate prayers, and if you don’t believe in prayer, send good vibes! Prayers for the doctors, his staff, and for my grandma, to heal & get home fast!!! I love her so much.

Thanks in advance.

House update! 🏑

Y’all!!!!!!!! Eeeeek!

Our house should be finished before Christmas. I was super down a couple of days ago, because we thought it wasn’t going to be finished by Christmas. But good news came & looks as if we will be in there the beginning of next week! Floors & counter tops go in this weekend!! I’m beyond excited!

So this weekend, on Saturday. My husband & I spent ALL day together, KID FREE! Kid free. We haven’t had time alone like that in 2 1/2 months. Which is wayyy too long. We’ve just been so busy. But this weekend, we needed to finish the Christmas shopping! So we knocked it out, and had so much fun. I mean we always do, but we usually have our kids. Everyone tells me, y’all need to get out more. Yes, every now & then but we would rather be together with our kids! My husband is such a hard worker & I was very blessed when I met him! He has been my best friend for 7 years, we’ve been together for 5, and married for almost 2. So I literally married my bestie! At first when we met, we were strictly just friends. He wanted to date but I was young & had just got out of a really toxic relationship. So I wasn’t ready.

Anyways, that was so nice. He’s my human!❀️I just love him! My kids are going to love all his presents! I can not wait for Christmas morning!!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Have a great week!!!

December 4 πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Well it’s officially cold now here in Oklahoma. Which means, atleast one of us will get sick. That one just so happens to be my 3 year old. He seems better today, but still has a cough. Keeping him away from his sister is the biggest problem we have. He loves to play with her! But she’s only 6 months, so if she were to catch something it could potentially be bad. I’m hoping it clears up soon, he was super upset he wasn’t able to go to church today. I’d rather him stay home than spread things to others.

On another note, if you’ve read my previous blogs, you will know we are on the last remodel of our new home which is the kitchen! Welllllll…. it’s ALMOST done! Which means, we get to move in! Which also means, we get to have Christmas in our new home!πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌI’m so excited! I can’t wait to decorate! 

Our little lady turned 6 months yesterday. Friday we went to the doctor and she got 4 shots! She was so upset, so mad. It was the saddest thing I’ve seen. She cried big ole tears but she’s been fine since. I can’t believe how big she is! 17 pounds, 26 1/2 inches! My husband is 6’5 which makes since to why we have huge children. Haha. Our son is super tall, everyone thinks he’s 5! He’s 3 & wears a 5 in clothing. Our son had a milk intolerance when he was born & it took switching doctors for us to figure that out & by that time he was 2 1/2 months old. So we had a little set back with his weight. She’s much chunkier than he was at this age! I think it’s the cutest thing ever. They are polar opposites but they both look so much like their daddy! I carry them for 10 months & neither look like me. Our son got my eye color & that’s it. πŸ˜‚ That’s usually how it works, I guess! 

Well I’m going to stop rambling, and go enjoy some coffee & watch Nemo with my babies! Hope your weekend was fab & your week is just as great!

Oh btw-Boomer Sooner-Big 12 Champs!!
