Randoms...

Isabella is watching Dora...so I thought that this? Would be the perfect time for some randomness....

*note...it's now after 7 pm. She is no longer watching Dora...it's been a L-O-N-G week around here...

~Madelyn got sick. Again. Fever 102+ and raspy voice. Took her to the ped yesterday and he *thinks* it's a nasty virus going around. Ugh. My poor baby girl has been sick at least once a month now. Ridiculous. This year the virus season has been brutal to us!

~We're going to Texas on Friday! Yay! First to go and see my sister, her husband and their new baby. I'm SO excited to meet my new niece!! Then we go down to Houston to see my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and their new baby girl. I can't wait! The girls and I will be spending the week down there at Leo's parents house--Bella is so excited!

~I went to the Gap Outlet a couple of nites ago. Just me, nobody else. It felt wonderful to go shopping alone, not having to threaten anyone with a timeout to the car...wow! I really need to go shopping alone more often. Anyway, I bought a ton of cute clothes for less than a $100. I love sales! And the Gap Outlet.

~I'm down to a weight that is 2 lbs lower than what I was when I found out that I was pregnant with Madelyn. I'm so happy! Now I just need to lose the weight from when I was pregnant with Isabella....

~Guess who agreed to get a Golden Retriever puppy after we're done with our summer trips in July...!! I cannot WAIT. I told Leo I was starting to get baby fever. Which happened around the same time that Isabella was Madelyn's age {9 1/2 months}. He quickly brought up the puppy...which I've been hinting at for the past few weeks, hehe!

~I finished reading Second Time Around by Beth Kendrick...I loved it! It was an easy read and I finished it in a couple of weeks. Light and easy read for the summer. I know, I know, I always say that, but it's true!

~I'm now reading The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I love it--I just started it on Sunday and I'm halfway done. I hope to finish it while I'm in Texas...

~I've had so many reviews and giveaways lately...it's a little insane. I think I am all caught up except for one which I'll work on while in Texas or back here in Mississippi once I get back home...

~Loving Wednesday nite TV. The Middle, Modern Family, Cougar Town, Fresh Meat...Don't judge on that last one--Leo and I love Real World and all of their challenge shows on MTV...haha!

~Um...not sure if anything else is blog worthy. My brain has been sizzled out lately...not sure what's going on. I blame extreme tiredness....

Congrats on the weight!! That is so awesome! And who could not puffy heart Gap Outlet?? So fun! Besides Houston where else in Texas will you be??

I've been a bad influence on you, huh? Those pups are too cute. But I have to tell ya, watch out for those puppy teeth, especially since you have younger kiddos. Our pup has gotten me & both kids pretty good. He's just playing, but it hurts!!! I can't leave him alone in the room with the kids yet because of it, but we are planning to go to obedience school soon. And he wants to chew everything beside his chew toys. I'm looking forward to getting past the puppy stage. Good luck, girl!

Krystyn said...

Poor M...I hope she's feeling better.

And, make sure to say hi to my family while you are in Houston!

Heather said...

I started reading that book "The Art of Racing.." and I couldn't get past the first few pages. I was sobbing and I don't think I could read it all the way through.

Jenny said...

I love randoms...Sorry about the sicknesses! I just hate it. We are battling something here too.

I know for sure that Will and Isabella would be great friends...Dora...binkys..what a team!

Love the Gap Outlet! I am hoping to go soon too!

Hattie said...

Poor Madelyn. I hope she feels better soon. Yay, you're coming to Texas!!! Woohoo for the weight loss too! I can't wait until summer starts so I'll have time to workout. I need to get rid of this tire around my waist! Ha! Heads up on the golden retriever. We had one and they shed like CRAZY. I mean it gets everywhere!!! But they are very loving and very smart. I miss our Boomer!
