Wondering...

...if these random-bullet-type posts are all that I am capable of producing as of yet? Because if you ask me...it seriously looks like it...

*Went and got some new Clinique makeup yesterday...love, love, LOVE it. Wow.

*Also stopped by Old Navy and hit up their sale. I bought some cute v-neck tees (4 to be exact), a lace cami (ca-uute!) and then a tee for Leo. All for $31 and some change. Love their sales! Especially on things that I'll be wearing at home with the girls each day.

*My memory lately has been crap. I can't remember anything--walking into a room, I forget what I was doing, what movie I watched the nite before...you name it. I forget it.

*I'm so happy to be chugging drinking my Starbucks Breakfast Blend each morning. Nothing else wakes me up like their coffee...and right now it's a necessity for me to be somewhat functional each day.

*Leo goes back to work on Monday. Crap.

*I still haven't read my Mary Kay Andrews book...I've read some, but when I'm not not busy around the house I'm reading blogs, on Facebook catching up or blogging.

*Got my Nikon D40 book for Dummies. Lets just say I am sooo happy I bought this book. I can't wait to take pictures with what I've learned.

*Speaking of taking pictures, that's on the top of my list for tomorrow. I've been really bad about it. So, that's priority over everything tomorrow. Well, almost everything....

*Getting my hair cut next month. Not sure whether to keep it long or cut it. Decisions, decisions...I know...

*Madelyn is still doing wonderfully. Sleeps (most of the time) like a champ, eats like a champ and is just a great baby. Isabella is doing much, much better--she adores her sissy and loves to help me out. What a great big sister!

*Isabella went potty on her potty chair Saturday nite! What a big, big girl! She hasn't done it again, but she has been reading lots of books on her chair. I am hoping this is a promising sign that soon she'll really be ready to really, really try to potty train.

*Been feeling somewhat domestic again. I made crock-pot meat loaf on Sunday nite. Monday nite I'm making a chicken recipe I found in my Real Simple subscription a few months ago that I have yet to make. And Tuesday? I'm making an enchilada casserole... Crossing my fingers that they're both delish!

*Called the gymnastics place to get Isabella enrolled in their fall classes...they should be calling me back tomorrow. I can't wait to get her enrolled! I think she's really going to love it.

*I think it's been decided that Bellers wants a Dora party. That's her obsession. Ah, to be 22 months again...

*Thinking about getting her hair cut. What do you think? Do it or wait for awhile?

*Did I mention Leo is going back to work on Monday....here's hoping this week is a good one without him here all day letting me sleep in, letting me nap, running errands with me, cooking dinner during the week helping with the girls....

Bullet posts are the best...I'm overdue for one!

Sounds like you've got a lot going on, but you've been productive...I mean, cooking & hitting up an Old Navy Sale AND new makeup?! Wahoo!

Please tell me that your little "surprise" made it in one piece...I mailed it last week. I hope you enjoy it!! ;-)

Bullet posts...? Welcome to the mind of a momma of TWO! When you hit THREE, you will be like me and lucky to string more that 2 words together!! :) Enjoy the days of simple bday parties....my Bella wants a BOWLING PARTY! I've never done one outside of mine or my family's back yard...I hear it is MUCH easier??!!

Way to go on potty training!!

Just lost the first message....hope it doesn't get in here twice! Love reading about you all and esp. little Madelyn and Isabella! It sounds like Madelyn is the perfect baby!! You are very blessed and so glad that little Bella is being such a good big sister.
Am so happy for you that Leo was able to be home awhile to help you. Bet you are a busy mama today with him being back to work, but hope you had a chance to get some more pictures!
love you, gma

I stocked up on some goods at Old Navy too...how can you beat those sale prices!!! I loves going to get makeup at Clinque...did they do a make over for you? I have done that a few times and it is so much fun!

I hope your week is off to a good start with Leo being back at work!
