Shop til you Drop

I spent most of my weekend sick, in bed!
But on Saturday morning I gave in and went shopping with baby boy in tow. My mother in law met me at the mall and we shopped. It was fun! But when I got home I was exhausted! The good thing is I am almost done. We just need a couple of little things for the boys. And I have to finish getting the stocking stuffers. But for the most part we are done!!! I can't believe it.
I hate the mall and don't like going during Christmas time. But believe it or not, it was very calm and empty on Saturday. I guess everyone went on Black Friday. lol I stayed away from shopping on Friday. I have friends that camped out for days to get a deal.

What about you? Did you go shopping on Black Friday? Did you score any awesome deals?

Family Time

I love spending time with my family of 4. I love us time!
I enjoy getting away and just having special family dates. We try to do it often but sometimes it's hard finding fun, free activities. lol

We have a playground set in the backyard and now that the weather is PERFECT we have been taking little man out there to play. He LOVES it!!! He climbs the steps and goes down the slide a bunch of times. And then he swings back and forth. Although, he doesn't go very high. He has yet to try the monkey bars, he is kind of scared. But I'm pretty sure soon he will be all over those as well!

What do you do for family fun?

The Barbie Effect

Have you guys ever gotten dressed to go somewhere, picked out that special outfit that you always feel good in, did your hair, make up, had the perfect accessories and thought you looked amazing, only to look in the mirror and find it wasn't so? Maybe your hair didn't curl or straighten the right way, or the dress doesn't fit as well because of some bloating or extra weight, or the worse, a huge pimple has surfaced on your face and there is not enough concealer or foundation to cover it up... Nonetheless, you still feel somewhat good about yourself, you head out for your special day out... Then you run into them, the Barbie dolls. You've seen them, they are perfect from head to toe. Their makeup is flawless, there is not one strand of hair out of place, their dress fits perfectly, they have the perfect matching jewelry, even their nails are done. They look like Barbie. Yep, doesn't that just make you cringe?

That happens to me more times than I can count. Why is it that I can't pull myself together that way? I don't need to be as skinny as Barbie, gosh, no way, I like my curves. lol But I'd like to at least be somewhat put together. lol

Pumpkin Patch!

We went to the pumpkin patch this past weekend and had a blast! I LOVE making memories with our boys.

Afterwards little man asked for Moes so we took him there. Not my favorite but all 3 boys like it there.

It was a fun family day and we really enjoyed it!

Little Man was on a mission to find the perfect pumpkin. It was so cute. He went all around looking for it.

Baby Boy kept calling the pumpkins balls! It was funny.
