I'm about to be 25....

So next Friday, October 22, I will be 25!! I just can't believe a quarter of a century has past by me already. Wow. I entered a contest the other day, and it said...what were you doing 5 years ago? I could hardly remember right off the top of my head. Although once I got to thinking about it I could remember bits and pieces. Sometimes it feels like my memory is eating itself. Gosh I have such a hard time remembering what I was doing 5-7 years ago! I'm so glad that we have pictures and video of things now. I remember the important things, I think. :)

Anyhow. So it made me think about 5 - 10 years ago, what I was doing and where I was in life. Basically I was a bad teenager 10 years ago...but most people are. I started dating this guy, who turned out to be my future hubby! Weird how that happens. If you would have asked me 10 years ago where I would be today...I certainly would not have said married, with 2 children, cloth diapering, non-vaxing, anti-circ', baby wearing, homeowner, car owner....none of that would have come out of my mouth! I probably would have said I'd be partying with all my friends making tons of money and living it up. Hahaahaha. How wrong would that have been? Too funny how people change and things change.

So my question for all of my followers...yes ALL 9 of you....

What were you doing 5-10 years ago? Where are you now? Did you know this is where you would be right now? Are you doing things you never thought you would do?

Have fun with it...

I need de-cluttering ideas....

My house is cluttered. I try to get rid of all kinds of things. If you don't use it....don't keep it. Currently...we live in a 672 square foot house...with 4 of us. The living room is the biggest room. Followed by the bedroom. I have so many craft things...a sewing machine...paints...markers...crayons...

Can anyone suggest a neat and tidy way to space save??

Help Help Help!! I'll post pictures of my living room at it's cleanest (if I can) I have two -2- year olds today...and an keeping the house clean is next to impossible. But I'll try to get a picture of the living room up. can check out my messy living room post from a week ago. LOL

Thanks ladies!

Have you had a day like this....?

Sure it's Friday, but essentially to us mommies...that means next to nothing. Sure my husband will be home all weekend. He'll be busy doing the things that didn't get done the weekends before. The list of things to do on the weekend is horrendous. My sister is getting married next weekend!! And I just...literally just...remembered that I have to write my speech! Gah! Add that to the weekend list. Along with get the shoes, weed the front flower beds, mow + weed wack, laundry (as always), drive down to see my parents, my sister in law's birthday, and I know there were a couple of other things. Oh yeah...and at some point maybe I will find time to relax with my hubby? My sister's bachelorette party is tomorrow evening as well, that's an all I can't attend because I am still nursing my son and the bars that she is going to allow smoking. Not a fan!

And to top all of that off.....this is what my daughter decided to do today....

The Royal Princess herself, atop the laundry basket! She's real lucky she's cute. 

What is mom looking at? ? I am going to take a nap. Will all of this be here when I wake up with the kiddos...unfortunately. I just need to restart this day. Maybe fairies will stop by while I'm napping peacefully? Ehhh.

Aren't they adorable...?

I love having a co-sleeping family! My little guy, who is almost three months already is snuggled up next to his big sister, 2 (I am right here though!) She keeps wanting to put her arm around him. It's just too stinking cute!

Wasn't too sure how to turn the flash off! Haha.
Also don't mind my husband's foot in the background HAHA.

Now I'm not sure if you can post a picture comment, but if you can't....comment with a link to your sleeping angels! Love seeing little's pictures!

Cloth diaper Sales

I frequently browse the Diaper Swapper page, but with all the other chatter going on, and it doesn't really notify me very well on updates (maybe it's just my settings, I dont know) Anyhow...sometimes I like to buy gently used Cloth Diapers, and I know there are many mommies trying to sell them. Can us girlies think of a better way to sell our diapers? Maybe start a blog for exclusively diaper selling? Anyone interested in this? Anyone have a better idea?

An Art Gallery...or a living room?

My little in her art studio! we opened a toddler art studio in our living room! It was incredible. My little girl is such a fabulous artist.

Hey mom, did you realize we can paint on the floor protector too? .....Ugh.

An up close view....

Hard at work!

The night slipped by us....Grandma stopped over for her Art Gallery Exhibit. I wanted to take pictures of all the art that ended up on my walls and doors! We put our easel out front for Grandma to see (maybe she couldn't figure out which house was holding the art never know.) Haha. 

Grandma loved it, of course. She even purchased a lovely painting. 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed my art studio day..!
