If only...

Once in a while I will come across a picture that I want to remember forever. I had to post this because I love this living room, and I didn't want kitty litter to be my latest post. I guess you can say I'm big into this kind of architecture and simplicity of decor. Call me plain Jane mom, but I love it. If only it was mine.

Are you kidding me?

Ok, I frequent the allrecipes website. Once, if not 5 times a day. I came across this recipe and about died! Are you kidding me? It is the nastiest idea for a cake. The title of the recipe is "Kitty Litter Cake". EWWWWWW! I can't believe I'm posting about this, but I was bored.

Take me here

One year ago this week, Marc and I were in Hawaii, and I cannot stop thinking about it. I want to feel the soft white sand in my toes. I now know why my sister is obsessed with traveling. You can't stop dreaming about where you've been. MMMMMMM!

My 1st pumpkin treat of the season!

I have officially had my first pumpkin treat of the season. Pumpkin Muffins from Costco. MMMMMMM. The only thing it was missing was chocolate chips, but it was worth every bite.

A little glimpse-

A field trip to the fire station- accompanied with an obsession with a new hat.
Chocolate mint patties- that somehow made it on Ali's eyes.
S'mores face- proof that we went up the canyon and were "campers" for an hour.

Neglecting or ignoring?

Maybe a little of both. It's been one of those mornings. Busy from the time the alarm goes off. As I run around the house from one thing to the next, I simply reply to my children as they tell me they are hungry, "just a minute, let me finish and I'll make you breakfast." As far as I know, I think I only heard them ask 2 times, but I could be wrong. As I finally find my way to the kitchen, I find 2 hungry children scrounging for food. Both stools are pushed over to the counter with them hovered over the toaster waiting for their breakfast to pop up. I then make my way over to the other counter, 2 plates. His and hers. Ali chose the elmo plate with 3 sectioned places for her food to go. In one section, a banana, mashed and bruised, but still in the peel because she was unable to open it. The other section, a cookie, at 9 in the morning. And last, an empty section waiting for her pop tart. They were so cute, that I had to let her have the cookie. My children are already learning to fend for themselves, because who knows how responsive mommy will be when 2 becomes 3! And yes, Aliyah does and always will eat more than her brother.

Martha, Martha, Martha

My current obsession. Always is, but the holidays make me feel even more Marthier. While searching her website yet again, I would like to pick two things that caught my eye. Fall Fever! You don't have it? Go to Taipan. Love this time of year.

Recipe of the day. Probably won't make it, but drooled when I saw it. Of course I would, it said Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies. She also had a recipe for pumpkin ones. MMMMMM!

2 + 1=?

4 + 1=?

3 + 2=?


2 + 1= 3 people I will call my kids

4 + 1= 5 people I get to feed & dress (yes, I sometimes get to dress Marc. He's colorblind)

3 + 2= 5 people in our family. 3 Boys, 2 Girls

It's official. We will soon be +1! Marc and I are going to be out numbered. Our car needs to magically grow into an SUV (with free gas). Our grocery bill has doubled due to frequent purchasing of toilet paper (I go 2 times in the middle of the night). It has also gone up to accommodate my regular pregnancy cravings: PB & J sandwiches, cereal, and milk (am I a kid again?) We are THRILLED to announce it is a BOY. Marc said if it was another girl, we were done. One sweet "Bipolar" angel is all we can take right now. Hopefully she grows out of it so we can talk daddy into one just like her! The little guy will join our family in January. Now all we have left to do is teach Aliyah how to correctly pronounce her K's, or everyone will think her brother's names are Dale & Dohen. Most of you know about the pregnancy, but I had to post for those of you that don't.
