Today on facebook a friend of mine posted a bunch of different deals and links and savings, (I love her for that!) and in the process of browsing through em, I found THIS. I seriously spent a good 20 minutes browsing the site, completely oblivious to the disaster my kids were making. DVDs EVERYWHERE! *sigh*
Ugh, so this morning I spend a good chunk of the morning vacuuming and moving furniture to vacuum and yea…. it was clean again, YAY right?! Welp, that’s what I thought until I went to make dinner…. and came back in to find this…..
Talk about frustrating…. *sigh* They are currently in the process of cleaning up the disaster or no more “melmo”
Yup…. they managed to pick up some their dinner dishes and a handful of cheetos before they ran off to play. Mommy’s turn. Adios bloggers.
While cooking dinner last night, I began to wonder if I was the only one….. WAIT. Peeling potatoes last night, I began to wonder if I was the only one afraid to slice my hand/finger open. I use a knife. “Why?”, you may ask…. I am afraid of peelers. I’m afraid that I will somehow manage to peel some chunks of skin off. Haha. *phew* now that I’ve shared that…. can I also just add that cheese graters pretty much scare me too?! I just KNOW that one of these days I am going to lose the tips of my fingers and all the cheese that I’ve just grated. Am I the only one with these crazy fears?! My husband will not stick his hand ANYWHERE near the disposal. I’m not sure how, but we always end up with a piece of plastic in there and I’m always the one that reaches in to get it…. NO FEAR! But hand me a peeler and my mind goes insane!! Ha. Do you have any irrational kitchen fears?!
While browsing for that link, a cute baby climbed in my lap taking over one of my hands, OH NO!! So, blog ends here for today.
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 🙂
