A real blog post!

Oh hey it's like a real blog post and stuff.
I will not be sharing any photos of my children today but I will be discussing what's been going on in our little house lately.

First of all today, April freaking 15th, I woke to snow on the ground! I feel like karate chopping Mother Nature in the fucking face today. Last week we were outside in short sleeves riding bikes and playing. Ridiculous!

Today was supposed to be Cain's first t-ball practice :(  I can't wait to see him out there playing. I got an email from the coach about what to bring to the first practice and included on the list was a protective cup. Say what?! I didn't even think about that. It never even crossed my mind. Minus ten points on my "boy mom" score sheet. I made Chris take him to get that figured out while I was at work. Do they make cups that small - apparently so. When I told Cain he was going to go with Dad and get a cup, he was all like we have lots of cups we don't need any new ones and then I had to explain it and I'm pretty sure it just went totally over his head.

I am looking forward to this weekend. Easter - up north - with the fam! It feels like we haven't been up north in forever and I am excited :) I am going to color eggs this week with the kids to take with us. I love having egg hunts, it's so fun to see the kids get so excited. Carly is at such a great age for this stuff because it's all new to her and she is starting to "get it".

I want to get a new car. We've been discussing it. I think it will happen soon.

We just got memberships to the zoo and I can't wait to go. We really love the zoo.

Cain has a field trip to the zoo in May.

He just had a field trip to 'Pump It Up' and it was an unorganized mess. It's a bounce house place if you don't know. It was pure chaos. Most of the parents sat along the wall on their phones, not paying attention to what was going on at all. Me, and like five other parents, got our old asses in the bounce houses and obstacle course things. I felt so out of shape!  Let's hope the zoo trip is a little more organized.

I am finally having "hair cut regret". It took awhile but it's now sinking in. It always does.

Still loving our new couch though - no regret there.

My sister might be visiting this summer again :) Looking forward to that.

Carly's birthday is in 61 days. I'm excited to throw her a birthday party! Her birthday is on Father's Day so I'm not sure where we will be having her party yet - still have to figure that one out.

Chris is going to Austin in June. I'm super sad I am not going. I love Austin. I love vacations really.

The song The Girl by City and Colour is on and I love this song.

I went to a jewelry making class a few weeks ago - it was fun and really got me inspired to do more.

So when someone asks me what I like to do I'm always like ummm....I draw a blank. I'm not a super boring person I promise, it's just that I don't really get much of a chance to do anything. I go grocery shopping by myself and consider it a day out. But I like to travel, I like to make jewelry, I like to paint, I like to go shopping, I like to go to the movies - shows - concerts - sporting events. I like baseball. I like to get pedicures. I like to go thrifting and go to yard sales, I like to veg out on the couch and watch tv and eat popcorn. I like to stretch and pretend I know how to do yoga. I like photography and love taking pictures and playing around with my camera. There just isn't time for all that when you spend the majority of your day making meals, doing laundry, wiping noses, wiping butts, drying tears, and feeling like you want to rip your hair out while feeling like you couldn't love them more at the same time. It's weird ya'll.
