short and sweet



somehow I am at a loss for words for the first post of the new ole blog.  So much pressure!  It feels a little awkward…like first date awkward…where your mind is racing and overanalyzing every single word you utter all while glancing at the menu thinking what in the heck I am going to order that isn’t going to

a. reek havoc on my breath

b. upset my stomach or

c. get stuck in my teeth

Oh, wait…you guys never experienced that?  Am I alone here?  Was I the only one who had a first date where the guy ordered onion rings!?!  Did that traumatic experience make me paranoid anytime I had a first date after that?  Oh, thank God, no more first dates for me.  Now if I have something stuck in my teeth it is usually pointed out to me by my precious almost 4-year-old.  Mr. Blue eyes, himself.

He will also ask you in the sweetest voice, “what’s that on your chin, momma?” when that annoying blemish rears its ugly head & everyone else has told you that they “totally cannot see anything on your chin”.   Liars is all I have to say!!!  You know who I am talking about.  Yep, you are so busted.  Ok, moving right along, I titled this post short and sweet here and I am already up to 150 words.  No, I didn’t count, Mom…there is a handy-dandy word counter on here that does it for me…so seriously…back to keeping it short and sweet.

I am excited to finally have a place to store all my projects, before & after updates and my totally random thoughts.  I tend to have about a gazillion projects going on at once so it never fails that I write something down on a piece of paper only to throw it out when it’s “dump day” for the good ole purse.  For those of you who don’t know what dump day is…men, you have an excuse and well, if you are a girl who throws everything in her purse, you HAVE to know what dump day is.   If for some reason you are a female and have never had a dump day with your purse, then gooooood job.  Way to go and be making all of us paper hoarders look bad.  Seriously, I am totally jealous of your organizational skills. And that, my friends, is why I am writing this blog…to help organize my thoughts, projects, life and all my “to do” items that I am constantly adding to my plate while my sweet patient husband just shakes his head at me.  Hopefully, the plan in my head ends up working out!  I cannot say I have a great track record, but here’s to hoping!  At least I have my jumping cheerleaders rooting me on…don’t mind the mess in the background.

And why yes, Oliver is wearing the CUTEST pajamas EVER!  Here is a better picture of my favorite pjs on my favorite 1 & 1/2-year-old.  I want to go back and buy 1 of every size so he can wear them forever…not sure how much he would love that, but it would make this momma smile

Oh, and of course, my sweet family…I want a place for all my relatives & long distant friends who I don’t call nearly often enough to come and see what the heck we are up to (yah yah, I need to get on facebook)…so I hope you check back often and say hi!  There is a lot more to come…I promise a lot more pictures of these two hawnyawks as well.
