Brought to You By My Glue Gun

I LOVE LOVE LOVE having fresh flowers in my house, but lets be serious, it doesn't always happen. SO I decided on the next best thing
I used Dana's tutorial over on MADE and WA-LA beautiful colorful flowers that won't die and add a little flavor to my dining table. 

 And while my glue gun was out and hot, I whipped up some Mickey and Minni headbands as party favors for a friends Birthday Party. Super easy but time consuming, but I LOVE how they turned out!

 My little characters. Its a joke trying to get them to smile for a picture. 

We're off to play with friends before it starts to dump rain. Hope you all have a fun stormy weekend!

Wonderful Wednesday

Its lookin pretty gloomy out today, which means we are going to stay in our pj's and watch movies and build forts, maybe bake some cookies and watch every Disney movie we own. It also means I will be breaking up a hundred and fifty fights and my house will look like a tornado hit it by the end of the day. 
I have a love hate relationship with inside days. 
But I have a love love relationship with babies in footy pajamas and little boys that run down the halls in chonies and super hero capes. 
It all works out :) 

On another note.

I have been on the look out for a quilt forever, but man oh man they aren't cheap. Rightly so I guess, they are a ton of work and so so beautiful. I found this little beauty on the Urban Outfitters web site and it was HALF OFF!!!! 
Um, yes please. I ordered her up and she should be here in a couple of days. I can't wait to have her colors brighten up my living room. 
And think of all the cute pictures I'll get of my babes wrapped up in her ;) 

Anyways, I'm gonna go scrub a toilet or something. Hope you all have a

About a Girl

 I know a girl that sticks her tongue out and makes way too Sassy of a face for only being one and a half.

Who wrestles like a boy 

 Dumps sand on her head 

 And cries on cue

I know a girl that dive bombs off the couch with her brother. Who licks the bottom of her shoe, and would eat the snails out of the garden if I let her. Somedays this girl comes in from a days play and is more dirty than her brother. She can eat just about anyone under the table, and has the sassiest mouth I know, even ME. Her favorite thing to do is open the refrigerator and look for something to eat.  Six days out of the week she is a 'boys' girl.... 

And then on the seventh day

 She lets me play with her hair and asks to have her toes painted "pretty".
 She flirts with the camera and says "Mama I'm so boootiful". 
She blows me kisses instead of sticking out her tongue. 

I love this girl. 
I love her with dirty finger nails or pretty pink ones. 
I love how tough and independent she is. 
I love how when she hugs you, she puts both arms around your neck and pats your back. 
I love when she says " I Love You" 
I love her sweaty smelly feet and the stains on the knees of her pants  
I love everything about this babe
and everyday I am thankful I am her mama. 
She is beautiful 
She is magical  
and she is mine 

I love you to your bones baby girl

Almost the last supper

Tonight at dinner, my babes were being extra awesome and eating like they were pigs eating from a trough. I mean seriously, they were being so gross. After asking them a least ten times to please eat like ladies and gentlemen, and wiping up the mess with a lysol wipe from my freshly repainted table like a freak mom (pictures to come I swear) I threw my hands up and exclaimed that mommy was very very tired and if they chose not to eat like ladies and gentlemen I was going to throw their food in the trash and they would go to bed with hungry bellies and I would give the rest of our food to children that listened. Oh yeah, that's right, I got crazy. I was in the mom zone where I could no longer see straight and I could feel the horns poking through my forehead.
You know you've been there. Now don't you feel better that you're not the only one.
Anyways, after I had made my dramatic statement to my little piglet children, my son looked at me and said " if your so tired mama, why don't you just go to bed?"
Seriously. Did I just get told by my three year old? I would love to just go to bed, but the day of a mama is never ending. I couldn't help but bust out laughing! I mean, I was about to loose my bananas over a little spilled food at dinner. So, i did what anyone would do. I told them to shove their faces in their bowls and have at it. There are worse things in life than a messy dinner table.

Oink oink little babes
Oink oink

I love you to your dinner covered bones

A Little Sicky

Last night the boy had a pretty high fever. The yucky kind that make his eyes little and his body shake. He was so hot and so sad. It made my heart hurt. A lot.

This morning we woke and I was praying for healthy babes.
A popsicle and a Dr's visit later....... The boy has Strep Throat and an ear infection.
Really???? I mean c'mon. This poor sweet babe is so tired and his throat hurts so bad.
I hate this.
I hate when my littles are sick.
I wish I could trade places.

I love you to your bones son, even the Sicky ones

My New Boyfriend

I have a new boyfriend.
His name is Niko. Sounds exotic huh?!
I have been waiting for a long long time for this guy, and now that I have him, he's become my new little obsession. I can't wait to see the trouble we get into and all the memories we make.
Niko, I know it's only been a few hours but I love you.

In case my stupid humor was lost on you, I got a new Nikon DSLR and I am over the flippin' moon about it. Expect LOTS of picture posts! And if you have a kid, expect me to ambush photo shoot them. I'm am little excited about it!

A Night For Friends

This might be my most favorite picture of us ever. 

You know those people in your life that you just couldn't live without. A friend that you can always count on no matter what. Someone that makes you laugh so hard you almost pee your pants. Someone that will finish her sentence in a song. A friend that loves your babes almost as much as you do. Someone you could sit in an empty room with and have it be the best time ever. Someone who will drink crappy white wine out of a licorice straw with you..... 
That's My Girl Chelsea
Monday night I headed down to San Diego all by myself ( and I sang show tunes the whole way at the top of my lungs. That's right, I was alone and living it up)  for a big girl sleepover with my favorite girl ever and it was some serious fun. She's been busting her hump at work and we haven't seen each other since Christmas. Saying I've missed her is an understatement.

I love you girl. Thank you for being such an amazing friend. I can't wait till next time!

Weekend Wrap Up

Some things I realized this weekend. 

Even though these two don't give me a chance to stop and catch my breath, I love every bit of them. Even the parts that stick their tongues out and don't listen. 
 Life is rough sometimes. And on the days when I think its all too much, this man saves me. 

 She is my new hero. No epidural and she makes beautiful babies. 

 See, beautiful! I am officially obsessed with her 

 I can't leave these two alone for a second. While doing his " business" the Sister snuck in a poured a bottle of baby soap in her hair, and he was helping make bubbles. Crazy kids

 Painting little girl nails is probably the sweetest thing ever

And finally, I miss this girl. I miss her so much its crazy. 

I'm outta here for a last minute and MUCH needed overnight girls extravaganza with this girl. I hope we laugh and cry and have too many glasses of wine and a Sprinkles Cupcake! 

Happy Monday Everyone!

Stick a Fork In Me

Do you ever feel like somedays it's all just too much? Today is that day for me. I should have just gone back to bed. We're all cranky and in dire dire need of a vacation, and a magic money tree. Where is that stupid genie in the bottle when you need him?
This mama has a couple wishes I need granted.
I know I should chose my attitude but everyone deserves to just have a crappy day every once in a while right???
Whatever, I'll stop complaining because no one likes a Debbie Downer.

In other news, I have been desperately trying to get Into the Valentines Day decorating mood. Wa wa wa. Just a few simple crafts and a couple new headbands for the new babe and her big sister. I know the pictures are shoty but my camera an I are fighting so it's iPhone pictures or nothing.

Some conversation hearts

And when the boy isn't throwing a fit or busy NOT listening, he's been practicing his name. Pretty good huh?

I'd better run. I have a batch of "feeling sorry for myself" brownies in the oven and if they burn I might just jump out the window.

A Perfect Little Babe

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I didn't get much done on my weekend list of things to do, but I can check one BIG one off!!!!!

This beautiful babe was born. Introducing Maci Cotton. Isn't she just amazing. And her beautiful mama did it all without an epidural. Yup she's my new hero.

Thank you for letting me share such and amazing moment with you guys! And for making me want another little nugget of my own. That's a whole separate post all on it's own;)

I have tons of pictures to upload but I am so tired my eyelashes hurt. Pulling an all nighter at the hospital and last night, little sister was up with a croup cough. I'm pretty spent.

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I got to love up a squishy little babe, so mine was pretty darn fantastic
