Whatever Wednesday

Having a baby makes time go by ridiculously fast. Having a blog and a baby makes time go so ridiculously fast. I feel like I am constantly playing catch up. If I can even catch up! I still need to do a 6 month recap and a post about my friend's wedding.

Last night I had a little heartburn and it's lingering a bit today. I haven't had that since I was pregnant. It's not nearly as bad as then- not even close, but I can't say that I've missed it one bit! And no, I am most definitely not pregnant.

Yesterday my sister made some eggless cookie dough for us to eat {recipe somewhere on pinterest}. And we
I got a little carried away with the idea that I could eat as much as I wanted since it didn't have eggs in it. 
Although I wouldn't get sick from the egg, it didn't take long for the butter, sugar and chocolate chips to catch up with me and make me want to hurl. 

It was really good though and I may or may not be having more today.

This makes me laugh. 
I mean, really?? 
I will admit that I was a fan.
 And I will admit that I have said in the past month how much I appreciate boy bands and their songs....
but this is now a "man band" and I'm just not sure I'm ready for that.

I took about 50 pictures of her eating corn last night. 
It was so cute, her eyes looked pretty and it sums up a summer night.

She also started doing this new smile that makes me laugh.

I was laughing yesterday as I perused my Facebook for pictures of high school and college. 
My caption for this photo was "Booooobies".
Did I really post that?? 
At least it's clear that I have matured in some ways over the years.

I really need to have a cleaning day and deep clean everything of Adalyn's. 
But it will have to be on a day I am filled with energy and motivation. 
Which is not today. 
And may not be tomorrow.

I also realized I never posted our Father's Day gift pictures. So put that on the catch-up list. But thankfully, that's an easy one!

Happy Hump Day!

Whatever Wednesday

Last week I came up with this ever so creative title/theme and said "today I'm just going to write about whatever comes to my mind because it's a rainy day and I am tired." Well today it's another rainy day and I am tired, so here we go....

So so so so excited I have made it half way through my last week of work!

I am so excited that Mama Grace has arrived in Florida!

She sent me this picture while she was in line to board her plane. Parade of wheelchairs=flight to Florida. She said there were more than this, but she didn't want to make her picture too obvious.
Have you ever seen so many wheelchairs?? She counted at least 8.

I really wish I could be home with her instead of working. I was jealous this morning when I had to wake up early and leave and she got to sleep in and spend the day relaxing. Three more days and my time will come!

As I mentioned before in my previous Wednesday post, I am reading a book called And Nanny Makes Three (yes, it's about 200 pages and I'm still reading it and going on about week 4 now) and I read that there are some nannies who have a job where the dad sometimes stays home. He stays in his room and is either watching tv (loudly), sleeping or occasionally watching tv with the nanny (that's not awkward). He is sometimes loud and wakes the sleeping baby. He doesn't offer to take the baby while you go to carpool to get his other child (who doesn't love to sit in a car for 45 minutes with a baby?) or offer to get the child at carpool while you stay home with the baby (this is his day off why would you expect him to do that??) He doesn't let you leave a little early and sometimes even lets you out late. If I had a job like that I would not be repeating to myself every few minutes "three more days, three more days..". If I had that job I might be especially bitter today since they are aware that my mom is visiting and hanging out alone at my apartment today, but obviously I'd much rather be here so it's not a big deal. Besides of course, that was a story of other nannies experience so I have nothing to worry about...

That was really hard to write in the tense like it wasn't really me. I think I messed it up.

There was finally a respectable mom on 16 and Pregnant. I think she is one of the youngest ones (only 15) and she seemed to be one of the most mature as you can be in that situation, I guess. So many of these girls think they are still entitled to be teenagers. They understand they are teen moms, but choose to take those as two different roles- sometimes a teen and sometimes a mom. Honey, it doesn't work out that way. So anyways, this girl chose to keep the baby, she seemed responsible, she didn't give her mom any attitude or expect her to raise the baby, she took complete care of her daughter, she is now home schooled so she can be with the baby and she realized and accepted that this is her life now.

Regis and Kelly is definitely now on at 10AM everyday, I have chose to accept it. It might work out nicely with my new housewife schedule.

The 5 finalist of the Beautiful Baby Contest are so adorable.

I'm excited the Olympics are over and my shows will resume. Tonight is American Idol, The Middle (hilarious show mostly because it's basically about my family) and Modern Family (also hilarious).

Jessica Simpson is on Oprah today, but Tenley is on Ellen. Gah, which one do I choose?? I went with taping Oprah because I can watch Ellen online. I can only tape one because a)if I tape both then we can't watch another show on TV and that's right when the kids get home from school and I wouldn't do that to myself and b) it's not my DVR.

We chose American Idol over Lost last night. Very hard decision. American Idol isn't on hulu though so it made the decision a little easier. Have you noticed the tough choices I have to face on a daily basis? So we can't wait to watch Lost tonight. Although I will admit, I really enjoyed the first few seasons a lot better.

I am looking forward to eating at all the yummy restaurants while my mom visits.

Looks like some good movies come out next weekend. Pretty bummed about that, Mama Grace loves going to the movies, her last visit we went to the movies three days in a row. I also love the movies, is this an inherited trait? It's so tempting because the theater is literally across the parking lot from our apartment complex, you can walk there. Our theater serves funnel cake, how unique and divine is that?? The movies are so stinkin' expensive these days so Mr. B and I don't make it over there too often so it's a highlight of Mama Grace's visit. There's not much out right now, but we might see Shutter Island. Not sure if that will be too scary for me. Has anyone seen it??

It's another cold day here in Florida. Yuck. Cold meaning cloudy and 52.

I am excited for the Strawberry Festival this weekend. They have the most delicious strawberry shortcakes (fingers crossed they even have good strawberries with all the cold weather we've had!) and we are seeing Darius Rucker on Sunday night. Hootie, baby.

Which reminds me, we are visiting my great-grandpa this weekend and he likes to go to Hooters. Oh boy.

I just got really hungry. The kind where you need to spit out your gum right away because you feel like you're going to throw up. Possible sign it's time for breakfast. Or lunch. Not a huge breakfast fan, not that I don't like eating in the morning, but I like lunch food better.

Enjoy your Wednesday!!

Whatever Wednesday

I made this title/theme myself, pretty creative huh? Feel free to contact me if you need some tips on how to create a title.

Today, I'm just going to write about whatever comes to my mind because it's a rainy day and I am tired.

Mr. B and I have been married 7 months today. It's amazing how fast time has gone by, but at the same time I feel like it's only been 7 months??

Our bed has not been made 5 times since we have been married. This is due to the fact that Mr. B is OCD, has nothing to do with me. Post on that coming soon. If it occurs again we will be moving onto a second hand and that is just repulsive.

Does Bonnie Hunt wear the same outfit everyday or did I miss something? When I first saw her outfit (a week or two ago) I thought it was cute. I am not 100% sure if it's everyday because I can only watch it on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but on those days she wears a cute blue ruffly shirt with a black blazer. Ummm Bonnie don't you have a stylist?

We got a package from Mr. B's parents yesterday! My excitement was doubled when I realized I am now married and I do not have to share these with my family!! Mr. B doesn't like Samoas, excuse me, I mean Caramel deLites, so I get two whole boxes all to myself. Wow. Just what I needed. So I might be wearing Mr. B's tshirt on a regular basis, for reasons other than bloat.
They also sent us some surprise money to go out for dinner- score. So we will most definitely be repeating last Friday night and getting those nachos again. You know when you eat something and it's so good, and it's all you think about for the next week? Nothing else sounds or tastes good, it's a legit need. The steak, the chicken, the queso, sour cream, salsa and guacamole (a taste I have finally acquired- I tried really hard to like it and I finally do. A milestone I reached in my 22nd year of life.) That's us with these nachos. I am drooling too, don't feel ashamed.

The sunset looked really cool last night.
This is what happens when you begin blogging, you take a picture of every little detail of your life, even if it is pointless and no one cares, with hopes it will give you something to blog about.

I have not stopped thinking about how the total of the meat at Winn Dixie didn't add up right. We should have spent less. After 5 days of figuring it out in my head, I finally decided to take a look at the receipt. Sure enough, they didn't take off a $10 savings!!! So we are going there tonight and they better give the money back. That's enough for a dinner at Chick-fil-A. We better get it back. Or else.

I like to eat out, have you noticed?

I keep getting weird friend requests (yes that's plural) on facebook. Like spam/porn type things. Seriously?? How do these weasels squeeze themselves into every little thing online?? Sorry yummygirl32 you have been denied. ignored. delete. I don't want to look at your adult only profile and pictures. Thanks for the offer. Please tell all your friends.

My bloating is just about gone. I know you were worried about that, I appreciate it. It always feels good to have your body back, for a few days anyways.

I am looking forward to seeing Octomom on The View today. It's important to aim high in life and get excited over the little things.

Mr. B's moped (mo-ped) looks to be taking a turn for the worse. This is not a good thing. We only have one car, which I need for work. Being the loving wife that I am, I am willing to sacrifice my job and stay home all day in order for him to get to class and his work. I am offering to sleep in, watch tv, lay by the pool and read all at the expense of losing my job. Wives respect your's the least I could do for him, really. So we will see what happens with that situation.

I am reading a book right now called Nanny Makes Three. I am loving it, it's basically a book that discusses the relationship/perspective of a nanny and the mother. It is so funny hearing the nannies point of view because it's exactly how I feel. And then of course I know the mom's is just like most of the moms I have worked for. I have another post planned for this topic too, it's called "A Nanny is NOT...." Please don't let the suspense kill you. Anyways, it's nice to read about other nannies that don't like it when the dad is home napping and watching TV in his room all day while you do the kids laundry, clean, do the dishes, watch the children and don't even get to out early. Not even 15 minutes early. sometimes even 5 minutes late. Not that this has ever happened to me, or even happening to me today. Or happens to me at least once a week. Again, I am willing to do whatever I can in order to give Mr. B a mode of transportation, even if it means losing my job. Can you say giver?
