We finally got SNOW!

It finally came two days late!

In some ways I am happy that Christmas is over and in some I'm not. I'm glad it's over so now I can get my life back to normal, it has been neglected for way too long. I'm sad because I feel like I didn't create enough this year.

Caleb just read me someone's Facebook status and I found it interesting, "if you could be friends with one celebrity who would it be?" I think I would be friends with Jessica Alba. She has a baby and did it backwards like me:) she also seems pretty normal:) who would you guys be friends with?

Have a tasteful Tuesday night

Christmas!

I had a wonderful Christmas! Caleb and I got some great new toys! He got an Alienware laptop, he got me a freaking serger! And my parents got me a silhouette cameo! We are sooooo grateful for the wonderful people in our lives:)

My favorite gifts are the ones you don't ask for but the people around you know what you like:) it's so refreshing to be reminded how much people care:)

Heidi is doing well, we are having trouble keeping her in her crate at night. She cries until we bring her into bed with us and she has to sleep touching one of us. I don't know if it's because she was taken from her mom so young so she needs the security from us or what. She is a really good dog otherwise she eats well she plays with us. We are watching Caleb's grandparents dog right now who is also a shih tzu and she tries to play with him but he is not amused:p I hope she is not sad when he goes home:(

Caleb's two day break ends tomorrow:( we have had such a great time together these past few days:)

Have sweet dreams tonight:)

Im here!

The last time I posted was December 6th that is just sad. I want to write everyday:) I know it wont happen just yet but I am going to try. This month has been so busy! My google reader has 577 unread blogs! I hate when that happens. We were in Michigan this past weekend and had a wonderful time! We had the Schindler Christmas on Saturday night, it was gorgeous it lightly snowed, it looked so romantic:) The Christensen Christmas was on Sunday which was also a lot of fun! We were at a clubhouse that overlooked a lake it was very beautiful. We did a white elephant at both Christmas's which is always funny. We ended up with a 38 piece set of Tupperware, that my sweet husband got for me:), a bracelet, a vase and a micro brewery. It was a good turnout! I love seeing all of Calebs family I wish we all lived in the same state:( But that would mean I would have to move to MI and I would miss MY family way way too much!

I am almost done Christmas shopping:) I have a lot of people to buy for and I like to make stuff so it takes me a while to finish:/ I didn't make as much stuff this year which kinda sucks but my stress level has been down so that's a plus.

We got our Christmas cards done and are going to send them out hopefully tomorrow!
hahahahaha Caleb is going to kill me for putting this up! hahaha but Laney looks too funny:)

Have a cheery Monday evening:)

Tuesday randoms

I did not post Sunday with the photo challenge pictures but I am going to do the rest this Sunday. I have been busy and sleepy!! I have about a million things to make right now such as: stockings, Christmas gifts, and ornaments for Lanes advent calender:)

I got both the girls down for a nap today at the same time!! Wooooo! So now that I am not breastfeeding I am having an overwhelming feeling to have another baby! When I really think about it I don't want another one yet. I want us to be more financially stable and Laney to be a little older. I like having my one baby. Last night Caleb Laney and I were snuggling on the couch and I decided I want that to last longer I don't want to add another baby just yet. Even though I ask Laney everyday if she wants a brother or sister hahaha and when I see pregnant women I long to be there too. It will just have to wait and it will be worth it!

Yesterday Caleb, Laney and I went to the mall to play in the little kids play place. It was sooooo cute!!!! I loved watching her interact with other kids and running around playing with all the toys! I cant wait for her to go to preschool just so she can play with other kids:)

Do you guys use Groopdealz? well you should! Go here to sign up!

Have a sweet Tuesday!

I have been swallowed

Does that sound dirty? Its not supposed to. I have been swallowed by my apartment. Yesterday my wonderful sister Jenny said to me "I think you guys have out grown this apartment" and it hit me. Oh shit we totally have. We have too much stuff, I have tried cramming stuff into every closet onto shelves but there is just too much. I know that my parents would store my stuff for me but I don't want them to I want my stuff with me so I can use it when I want to. It is exhausting trying to keep this place clean and organized because their is not enough room for it!! I know that people enjoy living more simply but damn it I am 22 recently married and I like my stuff! I am not a hoarder I am very good at getting rid of clothes I don't wear and stuff I dont use. (I may possibly hoard Laneys stuff but I just cant help it! They have too many memories that this little heart cant bear to get rid of) I like our apartment to look uncluttered but it is nearly impossible! right now our room is a shit hole with all my crafting stuff, a mini fridge, a queen size mattress topper and all of the gifts I have bought! I cant have all of the dishes clean at the same time becuase their is not enough room! I cant have all of my clothes clean either or I have to put them on the floor in my closet!

I apologize that this post is whiny but I have some stuff to get off my chest! I could desperately use a linen closet! Did I mention my apartment is 950 square feet? ya, tiny. Boy oh boy this place just swallowed me whole and I don't know what  I am going to do.

I hope you have an uncluttered Saturday!

Friday!!


This is todays ornament:) It needs work, I just glued the felt on because I was exhausted so it is not holding very will I need to stitch it on too.
hehehe Laney wants to wear my socks all the time! I love it:) those are ankle socks on me but mid calf socks on Lane:) haha
I got to hang with these pretty girls, and Jenny today. I got to see Caleb a little but he had an appointment this morning so i didnt see him much :/ I think we may be going out tomorrow night! Thank goodness my ID came in the mail today:)


I took this tonight with my phone I look horrendous!! I tried squinting my eyes a lot so you couldnt really see how awful they look without makeup and then edited it so they were darker hahaha I am such a dork! But Laney looked so cute!!! I wanted to look like a clean person today but it was just not in the cards I had way too many other things to do today so puting makeup on and doing my hair were not going to happen. I tried to put relaly clothes on and a cute hat but they were too uncomfortable hahaha LAME!!!!!

I made Chicken noodle soup tonight and Laney was my big helper! We have done this the past couple nights when I do the dishes or cook she will stand on a chair and pretend to cook:) She mixes and she adds milk and cinnamon.(just pretend)  haha I wonder what she is making.....french toast?? She really does say cinnamon really well its damn cute! She wouldnt look at me because I was asking her to little stinker, she was smiling away she thinks its soooooo funny!
The soup I made was loosly based off of this one that I made at the beginning of November.




 This is not a very good recipe this is just what I did no real measuring
A handful of wheat noodles
4 cups chicken broth
3 carrots sliced
2 stalks of celery sliced
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 can garbanzo beans
6 chicken tenderloins
Cinnamon

Toast the noodles in olive oil. Add all of chicken broth. Add carrots, celery, garlic and beans. Let cook for a little while until carrots are almost soft. Chop chicken and add to soup. Sprinkle cinnamon and mix. Cook until the chicken is cooked all the way through and thats it!

I am not a cook so I probably used the wrong terms. I am sure their are a lot of ways to make this better but this is what I had on hand. 

I hope you have a saucy Friday night :p

Rabbit Rabbit

Its the first day of December! Did you guys say rabbit rabbit today?!? I did, but I had already spoken :/ Laney started her advent calender today. She was not too sure about it but she had just woken up and I was trying to distract her so she wouldnt want to nurse. By the way we are doing better today. I am not in as much pain.
This is Laners snowman who resembles a duck :) The eyes were done with a french knot which I was super intimidated by but once I did it its super easy:) I am going to make her another ornament tonight not sure what it will be. A star, Santa, who knows what I will decide! I am quite tired tonight and I need to make a tutu. Bleh I dont know what I will do I just want to sit on my booty and watch tv! Roar enough of me complaining I will update tomorrow with my next ornament!


Have a super duper Thursday night!
