Random Wednesday

Gosh. I feel like I have so many things I want to blog about but I just never have the desire to sit down and write. Is this the beginning of the end? I have no idea.

Because I can't seem to formulate a sentence I'll do a little Random Wednesday....

1. I haven't had my hair colored in over a year. That is a personal record since I turned 16. Last year we didn't really have money for me to get it colored anymore (Praise the LORD for ombre hair being "in style") and now I just haven't found the time to do it. Also? My eyebrows are in desperate need of a waxing. I need to find time to groom myself.

2. Eli has been protesting his one and only nap of the day. Right now I'm watching him roll around in bed through the video monitor. How early do kids quit napping? He isn't even two yet! I NEED THIS NAP TIME.

3. I've been doing a really good job of keeping up with all my goals for 2013 and I even signed up to do a 5K. I'm scared out of my mind but I signed up!

4. Now Eli is standing up in his bed screaming at me, not a cry of pain but a scream of GET ME OUT OF HERE. Quiet down little one. Mama's clearly busy.

5. Eli enjoyed gymnastics a bit more his second week. There are 4 other kids his age in his class so it's been good for him interacting with them. Also, I don't think I mentioned it but I'm with him the whole time, its a mommy and me class. I like to think I'm getting exercise at the same time also.

6. Your makeup lasts FOREVER when you only put it on 2 or 3 times a week.

7. My new favorite drink is a split tea. Half sweet half regular. It makes me feel less guilty.

8. It has been sooo warm here. I know people think I'm crazy but I would LOVE some snow. We had a snowy winter when I was pregnant and I loved it! Give me a blizzard!

9.  I've been thinking lately....I think I am fully a mom-blog now. I guess I just need to embrace it instead of cringing.

10. Two years ago my grandma gave me the Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers. Well I just finally read it and it is AMAZING. In fact I just finished it this past week and I've already started reading it again. I just don't want to let those characters go yet.

11. I develop unhealthy attachments to fictional characters. Please see: One Tree Hill.


  1. Love Francine Rivers! Started with Redeeming Love and have been a fan ever since! :)

  2. Your brain goes to much when you turn stay at home mom. there seems to no longer be anything interesting happening.

  3. It's been a few years since I read "The Mark of The Lion" series, but it is one of the best series I've ever read!

    My daughter is almost 2.5 yrs old. She is still napping, but I found that I had to move the nap to later in the day to get her to take a good one. She goes down at 2:00 and will sleep for almost 2 hours. I tried to put her down at 1:00 the other day and she just played...not good!!!

    Oh, and I'm amazed at how long my makeup lasts as a SAHM. I would love to get the Urban Decay Naked palette, but don't know if I can justify it since I barely wear makeup anymore as it is :)

    Sorry my comment is so long!

  4. Anne Margaret is 2.5 and hates napping. She plays in her crib for a few hours and then MAY lay down before I have to wake her. I thought she was trying to give it up but the nights she doesnt nap she has night terrors and wakes up screaming. Its the WORST most scary thing ever. Since we started having those I went back to just letting her play in her crib til she fell asleep and now that we are napping again, she is not having them. As you know, all kids are different, but after all of this, I am all about letting her play til she falls asleep in her crib - even if it takes 2 hours!

  5. Francine Rivers is a fabulous author...all her stuff is the "make you stay up all night to read the whole book" kinda stuff.

    Naps will return...if the baby monitor accidentally has the volume turned down until they return....well, oops!

  6. I consider myself to be a fairly level headed non-emotional type person, but I cried over and over again throughout the One Tree Hill series. I watched each season online just last year. It is one of my favorite shows of all time.

  7. I have an unhealthy obsession with the characters from One Tree Hill too. I did not want to let them go. What was it about that stupid show? And Gilmore Girls! Have you watched that? I think I've seen the entire series at least 5 times and I constantly wonder what they'd be up to now. Pathetic. Ugh.

  8. Okay so... Mark of the Lion? Have I been living under a rock, because I'd never heard of this series before! Just looked it up on amazon, and I'm thinking I need to add these 3 to the kindle! Thanks :)

  9. Some of my favorite people are fictional characters....what does that say about me??? :)

  10. Cracking up about the makeup lasting forever comment, very true! I know from experience :)
