Yearly Re-Cap & New Resolutions

Last year I made a few resolutions.  As expected I failed miserably. 

Skinny - Epic Failure.  Instead of losing weight I gained it.  I am well on my way to being a fat girl.  130 lbs isn't that much worse than 120 lbs right?

Tidy -  The only one I didn't completely screw up.  I mean right NOW my house is destroyed, but that is due to a combination of trying to put Christmas decorations away and packing (more on that later).  I have done a lot better at keeping the house clean, although I am still no where near where I would like to be.

Well-Read (reading the Bible) - Another epic failure. On the same note I did go to church quite a bit this year.

For 2012 I decided to make a list of things I would LIKE to do.  But its just a list of potential things, which I want to do, but if I get even a couple of them done I will be happy.

-HAVE A BABY - This is my number one goal, but one that I have pretty much no control over.
-Lose 10 lbs
-Lose 20 lbs
-Lose 30 lbs
-Drink 2 glasses of water a day - Okay I am never going to get to 8 like I am supposed to, so two is a start.
-Keep my house clean(er)
-Read the New Testament
-Read the whole Bible


  1. OH, I love your list. I should do this. Our number ones are the same - have a baby. I would also like to get better about reading my Bible every day. We should hold each other accountable? What do you think. We haven't forgotton about the Dave Ramsey thing, just trying to figure out a couple things first.

  2. We should definitely hold each other accountable. How do you propose we go about that? A reading plan we both follow? Just checking in every so often?

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
