Warm & Fozzie

I have Fridays off of work.  It is nice.  So, I typically keep the kids home from day care and get a little extra snuggle time in with them.  However, I decided to do some things for myself yesterday.  I started with a trip to the dentist....cavity free of course.  Then I met up with our realtor, the amazing Debbie Dujardin, to check out some houses.  I really just love hanging out with her.  And to add to her awesomeness she took me to the bread store (we have a sweet discount bread store here) and bought us whole bag full of baked treats.

After that, I ran and picked up some BBQ to take to one of my favorite friends who just gave birth to one of the most precious little baby girls ever.  Seriously.  Lucky, for me, a few of my other favorite friends were at her house and I got to squeeze in some good catch up time.  And then after that I HEADED TO TO THE SPA!  You see I had a Living Social deal for a mani/pedi and it expired in a week, so I had to go. :) I get there to discover that OPI has a new "Muppet" line in this years holiday collection.  I don't normally get super pumped about things like nail polish, but this line made me unusually happy. Check it out, via The Polish Aholic.


I went with Warm & Fozzie.  I love it.  And so does Emmy.  The first thing she said when she saw it was, "I want that."  

It is a good thing that this nail polish made me so happy because about an hour after I left the spa, they called to tell me that I had ALREADY USED my Living Social voucher, and I that I needed to pay $60 for the service (in addition to the $15 upgrade I had already paid). So, I got myself a $75 mani/pedi.  Oops.  On the plus side, I genuinely feel Warm and Fozzie every time I look at my nails.

Like Ice Cream on a Mid-August Day

While my presence in the blogging world is fairly non-existent, my real life seems to be moving forward at light speed.  Evan will be 13 months old this week! Yes, I neglected to document anything having to do with his first birthday.  This is largely due to the fact that the G picked up a second job for a couple of weeks (well 12 weeks), both of the kids were sick for the ENTIRE month of October, and I got a migraine and barfed at Evan's b-day party (which was actually our 2nd attempt at a party). Oh and he's the 2nd child.  Just kidding baby Evan...kind of.  I'm the 2nd child and no one knows/remembers anything about my childhood, I suppose that is just the way it works.

Nevertheless, I do have this sweet little video of baby E learning to take his first steps.  It makes my heart melt like ice cream on a mid-August day.  He can actually take a few more steps than this video depicts....but at least we have something on video.

Also, before the existence of this blog and our little children, G and I once bought a house and turned it from this....

into this.....


And call us crazy, but we are itching to do it again.  If so, you better believe I will be documenting it here.  Sadly, I wasn't able to document the first remodel.  Maybe I will do a few posts on it, just to have it officially documented.  Stay tuned.
