Du.du.duuuun...It's Random Time!

*I honestly have no clue how to spell what I was saying for the title of this post.  But it caught your eye, no?

*Went shopping tonite.  BY.MY.SELF.  {I realize that myself is one word, but the effect of breaking it up worked better}.  Seriously, friends.  It was a miracle--in fact, Isabella?  Shoved me out of the door.  No good-byes.  Just a door slammed in my face.  I'll take it.

*Went to the Gap and Baby Gap. I got so many cute clothes for both me and my girls.  Cute Long & Lean jeans, tons of camis, shirts, boyfriend cardigan.  For the girls? Thing all-in-one long john outfit with pink patches on the elbows {Madelyn}, sweaters, jeans with hearts and flowers stitched on them, the coolest snowman slippers ever and a jacket for Madelyn.  I am in looove with it all and am planning another trip back there next week.  You know, to stock up on winter clothes for our Missouri/Indiana trip!

*Leo got Madelyn sick.  And me {yes, again}.  I swear, this year has been brutal.  This is my 2nd or 3rd cold.  I still blame this all on the swine flu.  I haven't been the same since.

*I'm trying to catch up on all of the SITSmas posts and the comments left on my post.  I had SO much fun!  Seriously--if you are wanting some comment love and are wanting to add even more amazing blogs to your Reader {I realize you do need more than just my blog to read} head over to SITS!

*Isabella is still awake playing.  I think I hear some jumping going on in there--I may need to go regulate in a moment...

*Did anyone else just say "Regulators...mount up!"?  No?   Nevermind me....just had a 90's flashback to Warren G....

*I've changed what I'll be having at my Christmas party.  The wine is still on my list.  But my food?  I'm adding a cheeseball.  God, I love those things.  I may make those pinwheel sandwiches, too.  Yum. 

*Madelyn rolled over from back to tummy today!  Love her and how big she's getting--I'll be taking some new pics soon.  Y'all must be dying without any pictures for a week or so.

*And Madelyn is always laughing at me.  Seriously--I just say hi to her and I hear the cutest baby giggles.  She's adorable, that butterball of mine.

*Speaking of butterball, I'm postponing my 30 Day Shred "Ikickass" regime.  I'm waiting until after the holidays.  I've been trying to watch the girls, catch up on housework, clean, shop {and grocery shop}, plan our trip--not to mention my party and Christmas.  It's too much for me.  BUT the Monday after New Years I am starting again...woohoo!!

*Apparently Starbucks is no longer making pumpkin spiced lattes.  I went there the other day after the Chuck E. Cheese fiasco and 1) was told there were no more psl's.  2) after I regained my composure I ordered a caramel brulee latte.  Disliked it.  Ew.  3) and I didn't even get a red cup.  

*I was devastated after that Starbucks trip.  Just topped off the whole crawling through nastyville at C.E.C earlier. 

*Isabella is quiet now...guess no need for me regulate.

*And before I sign off...Regulators!  Mount up.

*You're welcome for getting Warren G stuck in your head for Thursday.  xoxo

It makes me seem like such a fat kid (which I am, lol) when I say the food sucked at the party. But the owner said that before he let the woman who organized this year, they used to do the party at a steakhouse and there'd be tons of meat and obviously steak. I'm a steak lover, so that sounded a lot better than a nasty fish bar.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who lets their animals sleep in bed with them. *lol* Rich doesn't care if the dog is in the bed since he sleeps on my side - if he ever makes it to his side Rich gets way too hot and gets grumpy. I do admit, being between the two of them it's like a sauna.

Shopping alone is the BEST!! I really need to do it more often!! And add that cheese ball girl! I'm with you on the whole waiting till after New Years to get back on track thing...just way too much good food over the holidays!!

~Kristen~ said...

Next time at Starbucks try the Peppermint Mocha Latte and INSIST onthe red cup, 'cuz it just isn't a Christmas drink without it!!! :-)

Michelle said...

If you try the peppermint mocha, try it as a peppermint white chocolate mocha. Yum! It's fab hot or frozen.

OMG. As soon as you said regulate I had that darn song stuck in my head! Ha ha ha!

Jenny said...

gotta love the gap! that is one of my favorite stores for me and Will. they have such cute things.

my husband loves that song by the way! too funny.

peppermint mocha hot or cold is to die for...you might have a new drink...it is soooooo good!

amanda said...

please tell me you are kidding??

Anti-Supermom said...

But what decent American doesn't like a good cheese-ball?!

Have fun party planning.

Thanks so much for commenting! :)
How many years for you in the AF? My husband had Tech school at Kessler AFB, I went to visit him there once.

Love it! Regulators was one of my favorite songs back in the day...I totally started singing it when you said regulate. It is not uncommon for Josh or I to bust out into this song at any given moment....It was a cool dark night...

Your random posts are so much fun! I am glad I didn't try the Caramel Brulee Latte at Starbucks the last time I was there...my friend was telling me how good it was. I think I will stick to my White Chocolate Mocha Frapp or the Peppermint Mocha...that sounds really good right now...

You guys will have to be prepared for this insane weather we are having! Show us some of the cute things you bought! It sounds like you have a great time shopping and came home with bags of goodies!

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

Oh, to shop alone...

a H.I.T. said...

Woohoo Regulators!

Loukia said...

Llama said...

Yay for shopping by.yourself! Doesn't it make a world of a difference? I mean...i dont have kids but I prefer to shop alone...I always find more! I hope everyone starts to feel better soon, its seems like it keeps going round and round in your house soooo sorry!
Go Madelyn...you got the tummy roll...you rock girl!
I too will begin the diet... AFTER the holidays...cmon could we really give up all of the great holiday foods? Its just a part of the fun!
Booo Starbucks....what were they thinking...I think we need to get Warren G up in there to show them how things are done! HAHA! :)

Krystyn said...
