Fairy had the flu last I posted and got through Christmas day with omly a runny nose on Princess' part. However, Christmas night was a completely different story.

Hubs somehow while cooking dinner he pulled a muscle in his back and can't move {including breathing} without pain. Also, on topbof that he got a cold from his dad. So he's been in a loy of pain with how much he's been coughing and sneezing too.

Princess also somehow got the cold too but its not distracting her from playing with her new toys and movies.

Now I just have this mountain of clothing to fold and put away that I washed all in one day yesterday. So not looking forward to that.

{Hate these days}

So the day was going normally. Sent Princess to bed for her nap, got settled to work on the laundry. Next thing I know, Fairy started to projectile vomit and fill her diaper.

I had lost my phone so I had to have Hubs call it from work {thank you Facebook chat}, called the pediatrician who was out to lunch along with everyone else in the office, kept getting shuffled by the operator's and schedulers. Why? I have no idea.

So, as soon as I figure out what's going on I'll let you know.

{Christmas Madness}

Oh man have we been busy.  On sunday we went to my In-Law's and had cookie making day. Princess had so much fun playing with her cousins. Fairy even got to get her hands in the cookie dough for her first cookie day handprints.

However, that night I got a text from our neighbor in our building asking if we've heard water running lately in our apartment. Which we haven't and I told her that. Apparently, the neighbors directly below us had a pocket of water in their ceiling! 

So, they turned off the water to the building and had a plumber come out thankfully we didn't have to drag the girls out into the cold and drive the 20 minutes back to let in the plumber to check out our pipes, and the 20 minutes back to the In-Laws to spend the night {the whole not having water thing.} So, yay that problem got fixed.

House hunting is horrible in this time of year too I've noticed. We've been looking at getting a house closer to Hub's work so it's less money we're spending on gas, because $60 a week is outrageous. Thankfully also, on days he doesn't have to go in early he's been car pooling. It's been fantastic on saving money.

Tomorrow is his company Christmas party and I am kind of excited.  I get to wear my new formal gown I had to buy because I didn't have anything other than my wedding dress and old prom dresses that don't fit. {It's hard to remember those days when I was a size 0 *sigh* lol}

I think I spent about $127 {heart attack!} on my entire outfit {shoes, slip, ect.} and a couple outfits for the girls, along with a couple other things for them. Where as I found a dress I really really wanted to get for about the same price but just the dress.

So far also, the past couple days I've been non stop deep cleaning and getting ready for Christmas.  So deep cleaning where if I didn't know better I'd think I was pregnant and nesting again {which I'm not!} lol. 

Got to go though break time is over and the laundry is ready to get transferred.

{November Favorites}

Hey guys! I thought this would be fun to do.  I've created a list of my fall favorites that we liked.

TV shows/movies:

  • 'Once Upon a Time'
  • 'Elementary'
  • 'Dr. Who'
  • 'Sherlock'
  • 'Supernatural'


  • Dancing Waters Triple Moisture Shower Cream from Bath and Body Works
  • Tea, tea, and more tea {I've mostly been drinking Peppermint because I was sick though}
  • Strawberry Poptarts {frosted of course} have been our {mine and Hubs} favorite snack and have been eating them like crazy
Random Items:
  • blow dryer {Oh my goodness has it been my best friend this past month because I can't stop Princess from coloring on the walls with crayon}
  • The Mei Tai baby carrier {Fairy LOVES to be in it and I love to be able to do things hands free.  I even too her shopping with me on black friday in it. Thankfully it wasn't crazy here at all.}
  • my hat thing that Princess was wearing in Wordless Wednesday
  • My new eternity scarf

Princess {toddler}:
TV shows/Movies:

  • John Wayne movies are her favorite ones ever
  • 'Baby Einsteins' 
  • Oddly enough she loves to watch 'Sherlock' too.
  • "Friends'
  • any form of chapstick
  • Those Beech Nut Purees to go pouches {she refuses to eat any form of veggies but with these I can give her the ones with the veggies in it and she'll eat it. Score for Mommy!}
  • Peppermint water! {This helped so so much with her upset stomach. You get some candy canes or peppermint candy crush them up and put them in a cup of hot water and stir it until it's melted and give it to them to drink. Our old Ped. told us about it when Princess was a couple months old before he retired. I love the old school Dr.'s}

Fairy {newborn}:


  • Pamper's diapers have been amazing with her {with Princess it was Huggies instead}
  • MAM binkies! {she can't get enough of them}
  • Advent binkies {only if she can't get a MAM}
  • Her Graco bouncy seat {it doesn't work so we have to manually bounce it but hey at least we get a work out from it}
  • Her blanket she got from Primary Children's Hospital
  • Swaddleme's
  • swaddling blankets
  • Carter's footy sleepers

Finally got the nursery looking cute!

I know, I know, you're thinking 'What do you mean? I thought you've been working on it for a while.'

The answer is yes I have been, but I finally have it looking cute. Like an actual nursery instead of just a room that happens to have all the baby things.

Also, we got the Christmas tree up!
