So today I’m attempting to CLEAN. Ugh. I seriously HATE cleaning. And i’ve yet to completely unpack. (You should see our bedroom, it’s pretty frightening-Clothes EVERYWHERE!). Also, it is nearly impossible to clean and really do anything while trying to clean up the messes of two toddlers. *phew* They’re nutso lately. Little miss is currently going through all the “books” (DVDs) and pulling them out while my son says “NO!!! BAD!” and puts them back!! It’s pretty entertaining. Haha. I need to go sweep and mop. I just vacuumed so YAY ME! I don’t know why, but I really dread when it comes time to sweep!! It’s not like it’s hard, so who knows what my deal is. What do you dread most when it comes time to clean?
And if I haven’t already told you about Swapstyle, you should really go check IT out. My friend, Jenn introduced me to it and I’m addicted!! You swap clothes (and other what nots) with people all over everywhere and you just pay for shipping!! YAY! I’ve already swapped with three people and am sending out my packages on Saturday! Exciting stuff happening in the Mack house! YAY
My husband loves shrimp! Me on the other hand, not a big sea food fan. (gag, barf, puke, run away, hold your nose, scream, refuse to touch/prepare/cook/eat it) Well, Sunday night I made this recipe for Zesty Shrimp Pasta while browsing online for some shrimp recipes for my hubby cuz I love him oh so much. (and he thawed it out in the fridge over night so i’d be forced to cook it or trash it. I’m not going to waste a whole bag of shrimp!) Anyway, I should have taken pics but it was AMAZING!! ( I picked the shrimp out of mine). We had some friends over to experience it and they said it was DELICIOUS! I paired it with some rolls and salad. Oh, so if you choose to try this recipe (which you SHOULD!!), i’d suggest that you chop the onions and peppers. I just cut em into strips without thinking (and the recipe isn’t specific) and everyone had to cut em up with forks or shove em in their mouths. (Still delicious, but smaller pieces is recommended).
**Side note: GUYS GO HERE!! I am seriously in love with her stuff. I really also want THIS ((can someone tell my hubs please?!?)) Oh and THIS Ok, THIS ONE might be the winner!! (I really need to quite, but this is some seriously GORGEOUS stuff))
Ok, so my other “motivation” for blogging today: Hubs isn’t coming home til late. :/ I made my first pot roast today, it is DELICIOUS!! And he’s missing it. I knew he’d be home late but come to find out, it’s like midnight late and not like 6-7pm late. *sigh* I’m sure it’ll still be delicious when he gets to finally taste it.
In other news, birthday parties are STRESSFUL!! And exhausting!! But well worth it!! Look how handsome my baby is!! And so happy!!
Here is a photo of me and my princess (she was miserable!! Fever, slept all day… poor thing)
And one more of my handsome man trying SO hard to gather up all the balloons.
Oh ummmm…. hmmmm. Quick update in the Mack house: *We are all moved in (on base, FINALLY….HOORAY!) *I am DYING to get a good desk and shelf so I can get back to crafting. *I made my kids homemade play dough today-I should have read more carefully MADE FOR A CLASSROOM-haha!! I have enough play dough to last us…. well probably a few days with my kids, but still.
There was something else I was going to post about, but I’ve completely forgotten…. so until next time. <3Oh!! I remembered!! If you’re looking for some new recipes, check out THIS BLOG!
If you wish to skip this post, I understand. It is simply full of recent photos of my little toddler (quickly leaving the “toddler” stage) He’s such a big boy!! Yesterday was his 3rd birthday (party Saturday, i’ll post some pictures for you) Where in the world does time go?! It seriously seems like I JUST HAD HIM!! I know everyone says that, but my goodness it is SO true! So yea, here are some pictures of my “big boy” in all his cuteness. Enjoy 🙂
a friend of mine ordered some of those hair bumpits… Of COURSE, I had to try them out. 🙂 hahahahha, it’s a crappy quality pic, but still makes me giggle EVERY time I see it. It’s just funny right?! Anyway, in other news, we’ve seriously been packing and cleaning. We rented a Rug Dr. Spent $60 on that bad boy only to find out that it had to be returned by 12:45 the next day. After we left there, we stopped to stock up on energy drinks. From 5pm to 3am we were up packing and cleaning and vacuuming and shampooing. And our poor carpets still have red stains. ((much thanks to this kid I babysat for a few months… his dad thought it’d be smart to drop him off with red kool-aid in a SQUIRT bottle…. the damage was done before I could even take the juice away…needless to say, after that day I always swapped his orange/red/purple juice for water or clear juice in a NORMAL sippie. *sigh*)) So for a whole minute, our house was clean… we’ve packed up most of the kids’ toys and hidden them in the garage til moving day. We kept our a few of Handsome’s trains and cars, and a few of my princess’ dolls and what not… we also kept out the crayons. **sigh again** This is my wall. :-/ Thank God for magic erasers!! Anyway, after I discovered the crayons, I “built” a fort out of some of our giant moving boxes. And told them THAT is where they color. They’ve had a blast. This pic is me and the princess hiding in the box from daddy and bubster. Ha. I later jumped out and scared the crap out of both of em. It was quite HILARIOUS!! ((Hubby didn’t think so)) Also wanted to share:: MY KIDS LOVE BROCCOLI!!! Seriously, I said “ok, break time, let’s have a snack” and brought em juice boxes and this plate of broccoli and ranch, I had to make a SECOND plate!! YAY! 🙂 (Keep in mind when viewing these pics, HOUSE IS A DISASTER-MOVING)
((I meant to post this DAYS ago, but my laptop crashed AGAIN **rolls eyes**, but it’s back and yay))
I’m thinking of doing a foodie post something or other…. A friend of mine does a recipe blog, and I’ve thought about it for a while, but I think I might just take this Foodie Friday idea and do a Tasty Tuesday, or something like that….. Yea…. hmmm. Thoughts?!
A few days ago while Mr. Handsome took a pee, Ms Dramatic followed him in there, sat on the little potty and said “poo” haha. And here are the heart shaped glass I promised. Ms Dramaqueen herself. ((How cute is she?!?!) They were having a tea party-hence the cup! 🙂
Not much to post on really, other than the pictures. Been packing and cleaning. (getting ready to move on base, THANK GOD!)
