Talk to me Tuesday!

Welcome to our FIRST Talk to me Tuesday! 
Join us and tell us what you thinking, give us a rant, or just simply list your blog! Thanks!

~Well my night was interesting last night/ Molly fell off the couch (which isnt too far to the ground) but managed to really hurt herself. I took her to the local express pediatrics, and they took an x-ray. She could have hair lined fractured her clavicle, but they think she just bruised it. They put her in a sling, and it makes me want to cry.

~ Who watched Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night? Oh my gosh, I can not believe how juicy that show is! I honestly still can not believe that all of these woman are still on the show since they fight like crazy! I thought the girls play date with Teresa and Melissa was TOTALLY awkward. Jacqueline wasn’t really on much, but I like her. I just love Caroline. Shes probably my favorite on the show (and always has been.) This season looks insane. I cant wait to watch!!
~ How about Real Housewives of Orange County? I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, because of Molly’s incident!
~Anyone else thinking “Christmas is in 6 months” or am i the only crazy one?
~Does anyone else wait for the mailman? I feel like I have issues, that I actually look forward to getting mail every day. Please tell me I’m not the only one!

~Don’t forget to head over and enter my giveaway! I also can not believe how many followers I have gained in a few days! I love it, thank you so much for reading my blog, and I can not wait to read all of yours! document.write(”);


Happies & Crappies!

Today, I’m doing a different link up with Scissors and a Whisk and The Vintage Modern Wife, both blogs I just discovered recently and adore!! 

-My Bath & Body works haul. I’m sorry I keep talking about this, but I just LOVE these candles!! 
-Molly: She always makes me happy, but she’s been extra cute this week for some reason. We got her the Sophia the First CD, and she sings the songs. She’s just getting so old!!
-My AH-MAZING giveaway that’s going on NOW! Go ENTER HERE! Really, I love this one!! 
-Getting out of Debt…Slowly but surly! Its happening, and I know it is going to take time, but its happening! 
-Growing my blog! I really have come to LOVE blogging, and the blogging world! Thank you everyone for being so welcoming! 
CRAPPIES: I actually do not have too many crappies this week!

-This heat! I know I shouldn’t complain, yes this is the weather around this time of year, I guess i just wasn’t ready for it. 93 degrees today-the AC is on! 
-This MESS! How come, whenever I clean-5 minutes later its awful again? Maybe its because I have a 2 year old…but It just stinks sometimes!
-Awful TV! Why is there never anything on in the summer? Other then the Housewives. Any suggestions (other then Sophia the First, and Mickey Mouse?)
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! 

The Mama Memoirs

I truly love this link up! Such a wonderful way to gain advice and read other people’s stories!! Today, I have a question, that is: When do you take your child out of the situation?

Our situation is being play groups, library programs, etc. Molly is only two and a half, and since last November I took her every Wednesday to Mommy and Me. In the beginning it was only her and two other little boys, but as the year progressed more children started attending. As more children starting attending she starting getting more shy, and clingy. I just thought she would get over it. Mommy and me ended a few weeks ago, and we have been busy so I haven’t had a chance to have play dates (other then with her cousin Lila.)

Yesterday, I took her to the library program, with a friend of mine. She was more shy then usual, and I didn’t think much of it assuming she’d warm up, but when we got downstairs to where the program is held, she freaked out. She grabbed on tight to me and kept saying “Wanna go home Mommy.” I continued to ignore her, and show her things to play with (a climbing toy with a tunnel, and a kitchen set) but she wanted nothing to do with it. I let her whining go on for about 15 minutes, and then gave in a left.

My question is, Will she continue doing this because I left the situation? 

I know she is still young, and she actually still has a whole year of Mommy and Me (she turns three in January and doesn’t make the Pre-school cut off date.) I feel kind of silly asking this question. I was a pre-school teacher for 4 years, and worked at the same daycare as an assistant teacher for another 4 years before that. In a teachers aspect, I probably would have gotten a little annoyed with a parent that did this. As a mother…I felt like Iwas torturing her. I always compare things to when I was a teacher, but NOW as a mom, I totally understand why these parents did some things they did…because being a mom is a totally different ball game!

I just don’t want her to have social issues, and I don’t want her to think I will always take her out of the situation. Am I totally overreacting? 

Thursday Thoughts!

Today I am co-hosting Thursday Thoughts with Toby’s Tails and Simple Southern Ways!
~Yesterday, a friend of mine invited Molly and I to come to the local Library program in her area. I decided to take her because I thought it would be so much fun (and they have an awesome music lady come sing and play the keyboard-its just cute.) Molly is pretty shy, but usually she warms up and is fine after a few minutes. There were quite a few kids there, more on the younger side, and unfortunately Molly did not warm up. She cried the whole time and kept asking me to go home. After about 15 minutes of off and on crying I left. I’m really concerned  (and I know i probably shouldn’t be, and this could just be being a first time mother) but is this normal? All of the other kids seemed absolutely fine. Maybe it was because she knew no one? Am i totally over reacting? 
~ On a fun note, June is an AWESOME month to purchase something from Thirty-One. For every 35.00 you spend you can purchase a Large Utility Tote for 10.00! They are usually 35.00! There’s also the cutest flip flop pattern only available in June! These large totes are so useful. Some idea’s for them are grocery shopping, Beach bag, Book Bin, Dirty Shoes, closet organizer, or Children’s toys (This is what i use them for!) Host a party in June (an online/facebook party) and receive an extra 20.00 credit (in free items) from me! Contact me!
~I posted my Bath and Body works haul yesterday, and I have to say I absolutely LOVE the  Caribbean Escape. Its wonderful! If you are interesting in ordering, you can use BEACHES13 for 20% off (valid until July 7th!)
~ SO…Who watched RHOC on Monday night? I have been waiting to talk about this! What did you think? I thought it was a “warming” episode. It actually made you feel like these woman had hearts (where as sometimes I’m not so sure-ha) I actually felt bad for Tamra, she usually is kind of a bitch, but I totally understand (now) why she is like that! I thought her speech was really great! Vicki, totally made the right choice and spent the weekend with her daughter and her grandson (and now that her son in-law is going to be deployed, the ballgame changes with her and brooks-who i do not like.) I still dislike Alexis, but am looking forward to her lunch with Tamra next week! It looks good. I also, am not sure I want to admit this but Heather’s date actually made me cry. I thought it was so sweet of him to get her a  card. Tell me your thoughts!!! I am thinking of maybe doing a Recap post every Tuesday!

So What Wednesday!

Today I’m saying SO WHAT…
…IF I got 10 hours of sleep last night and I’m still tired. I’m blaming it on the weather! Its so dreary outside today! 
…IF I’m having serious Target withdrawal. I wish I was kidding, but I had a dream about shopping there last night. I have issues! 
…IF my “new” iPad is really Molly’s. Keeps her busy when I need to get stuff done! 
…IF I love RHOC. Who watched Monday night? I thought it was really good, but next week looks better!!
…THAT I thought it was so incredibly cute, when yesterday Molly was playing with her doll house and she was naming the people. The baby was Baby V (who isn’t even born yet!) She  must really listen!
…THAT I am so excited about my new link up with Rebecca over at XOXO Rebecca Mae. It starts next Tuesday, and is called Talk to me Tuesday! Check it out HERE, and join us!! 
What are you saying SO WHAT to today?

Weekend Review!

I have to say, this weekend was really great! My husband was off for three days straight! I can not even tell you when the last time he has been off for even two days, but it was nice to have him around for three days!

 It was SUPER rainy here Friday and Saturday! Friday, Molly and I did not even leave the house.
Saturday morning I watched my niece, which of course makes Molly super happy! They had a good time, but I think the most fun they had was dressing Cody up.

Saturday afternoon,we had to go to my brother in laws 30th birthday party. At last minute they changed it, to a firehouse so the kids had a great time playing around the trucks and such. His whole family are members of the firehouse/ambulance corp. so Molly sometimes gets special access, which is so much fun for her! As a kid, how much fun is it to see the inside of a fire truck! So cool!!

Sunday, Mike and I went food shopping in the AM, and then did stuff here all day long. It was nice to have him home, so he could help us clean and do some yard work. I’m not sure I have mentioned this before, but we live right next door to my father (he owns a large house with three apartments-we live in one, my brother in another, and he lives next to us) so he decided to build a shed. So that was going on too!

Memorial day was a lot of fun also! We had a BBQ, which ended up being a lot larger then i expected! In a good way! We had about 20 people over! Kids were playing and the guys were playing some sort of rope game (I have no clue what it is called!) It was such a nice day (and Cody was well behaved-he’s usually the pest of the party because he’s huge and wants to be on top of people!!)

All is all, great weekend! Wish I took more pictures! How was your weekend? Any fun plans for this week?
