Thursday Thoughts 12/18

Good Morning Everyone,

Today's Thursday Thoughts: 

1. It snowed last night. 

2. My house is a wreck.

3. I have a billion presents to wrap. 

4. My Christmas cards are sitting here, all filled out, not mailed. 

5.  Potty training is weird, yet amazingly...going well.

6. This is not the post I had planned today. 

7. Whenever I start working on my blog Kyra gets her laptop ( a non working one that we had lying around) and starts typing as well. My heart may melt from the cute. 

8. I have the strongest desire to bake ALL. THE. THINGS. 

9. My To-Do list seems to be getting longer and not in fact shorter.

10. It Snowed. 



Happy Thursday.

Confessions 12/16

Good Morning Everyone,

It's time for Confession Day!

I confess that I am in slight shock that Christmas is next week....

I confess that up until yesterday I hadn't really gotten into my "Christmas Spirit". I told my husband on Monday that I just wasn't feeling all that cheerful or holiday spirited but yesterday I as I was sitting with Kyra curled up in my lap asleep and staring at my Christmas Tree....it finally hit me.


I confess that Stephen Colbert's portrayal of Legolas was one of the best things I've seen ever.

I confess that I'm about to lose it when it comes to my neighbors. They have fought literally EVERY DAY for the past week and a half. LOUDLY. They've woken Kyra up at least twice and have pissed me off more times than I can count. Shut up already.

I confess that I got more than a little tipsy over the weekend and it was AWESOME.

That's all I got for today, Happy Hump Day Everyone!

Don't forget the Linkup!!! #HASHTAGHUMPDAY

Tumbled Tuesday

Good Morning Everyone,

Okay so I'm going to be REAL honest here.

I had NO IDEA what to blog about today. I've got the rest of the week planned but for some reason Tuesday had a big old empty space.

So I thought I would do something I had not done before.

I'm gonna share with you my Tumblr Favorites. Maybe it is silly but since I joined Tumblr I have made a habit of laughing out loud to the point of snorting. My husband is constantly looking over at me in confusion as I cackle on about things. Also there is just this HUGE amount of awesomeness.

So here are the ones that had me laughing like a crazy person last night....













 



Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

P.S.- I have no idea where are the owls came from....I just like owls.

Monday Mantra 12/15

Good Morning Everyone,

Today felt like a good day for a Monday Mantra. 

The #1 Reason Most People Fail - Money Saving Mom®

I've talked a bit about weight loss here on the blog, but I try not to go "too" into it because I don't consider myself a weight loss blogger anymore. However I do like to share my struggles and successes because I like to read about them on other blogs and know other people like to read about them as well.

This past weekend one of my best friends came into town. We had an amazing time and even though I have no pictures to prove it (seriously I didn't even bother with my phone) it was one to remember. 

Weekends like that however rarely involve good food choices for me. We went out to eat on Friday and I indulged big time. Then Saturday was like Snack Central. Sunday wasn't as bad but still not many "healthy" choices were made. 

I didn't think about it then because I was like "forget this, I'm going to just focus on the fun and not worry about it. It's just a weekend!" 

This was a breakthrough of sorts. 

Normally today I would be racked with guilt over the things I ate and would punish myself by not eating today or eating as much food as I could shove in my mouth. Stupid I know. 

This morning however I got up, I made my healthy breakfast for Kyra and myself and then filled up my water jug with the intent to guzzle the 60 oz I am supposed to have every day. I didn't step on the scale. I didn't worry that I couldn't get right back on track. Because I can. I can do this. I know that this one weekend of fun won't ruin all the work I've done. I know that today I need to just get back into the swing of things and eat what I know to be good for me. 

I won't punish myself. That is a ridiculous thing to do. 

Instead I choose to push forward. 

I got this. 

Happy Monday Everyone.

The Christmas Quest

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I'm going to tell you a little story. 

Every year it seems like around this time we find ourselves with a Quest.

This year's quest? 

Finding the elusive ornament. 

Every year we get a Hallmark ornament. Sunday we decided we would go shopping for ours this year. We got to the store and it was super crowded and it was making Kyra pretty fussy so we stepped outside to look up the options online.

The online listings had a lot more ornaments than we saw in the store but there were two ornaments in particular that we knew we had to have. 

Behold "Baby Mine"  and "The Great White Menace" 







 I wanted "Baby Mine" for Kyra for sure. I love the movie Dumbo of course but the song in particular always makes me cry..in a good way! Bobby had to have Jaws just because it had the theme song and well you know it's JAWS!!

Both were out of stock at the Hallmark we were at so we drove to another Hallmark a few miles away. 

Out of stock. 

So we get on the phone and call the mall that is about 45 minutes away. Out of stock. The girl then tells us that these two particular ornaments were very popular this year and they have been out of stock for weeks. 

You may not know this about Bobby and me but we are competitive and now that we know these are hard to find...it has become a Quest!

Ornament Challenge: ACCEPTED

We look up the numbers for all the Hallmark stores in a 100 mile radius and Bobby starts calling. 

Out of stock. Out of Stock. Out of Stock. 

Finally he finds a store that has "Baby Mine". They put it on hold for us but they don't have "Jaws". 

The calls continue. 

Success! There is one store that has the display model of "Jaws" left and they are willing to sell it to us...however we have to pick it up that night! 

So we drop Kyra off at my parents and get on our way. Both stores that we have to get to are a LONG way away....and it is 3pm by now....the stores close at 5pm. 

It's a race against time. 

We arrive at the first store by 4pm and pick up "Baby Mine". It's finally ours! SO PRETTY!

One down....now we just have to get our fishy friend!

As we start the journey to the other store we notice that one of Kyra's toys has become lodged under Bobby's seat. 

We now have to listen to Polly Wolly Doodle....for 40 minutes. No joke. 
 

 At last we arrive and the lovely ladies sell us our toothy friend!! 




Victory!!!
