    There’s Snow In My Pants


    My days tend to be ordinarily pretty routine. I don’t like a lot of change when it comes to my exciting monotonous schedule. Throw in a kids doctors appointment or a bookkeeping meeting with my CPA…and my whole week is backwards.

    It’s wake up at 5:45 am, quickly throw my knotted nest of hair in the tightest ponytail possible, grab a sports bra, pop in the 21 day fix DVD, sweat and curse the insanely-fit-rock-hard-abs instructor making me doing 60 straight seconds of burpees followed by 60 seconds of weighted lunges…repeat, finish my 30 minutes of morning hell bliss, wake up the kids who aren’t already awake, jump in the shower – typically with a toddler in tow, dress myself…and each kid…even the seven year old HATES picking out his own clothes, make a healthy shake and breakfast for the kids – which tends to be a pop tart or microwavable pancakes – I keep it classy, rush out the door to take them all to school, come home, plop myself in front of the computer AND…..

    The Scattered Love Affair – 9 Things I Love More Than Fountain Coke

    If someone could be in my head for a mere two seconds, just two, they would hear this…

    Brain starts off with – “I’m going to paint the bathroom…. No, I think I’ll finish decorating the boys sports themed bedroom… Wait, I want to re-do that gallery wall… No, I NEEEEEED to organize the laundry room…”

    Which usually all turns into “I’ll hang a canvas print, run to the gas station for a fountain coke and then online shop for some new shoes.”

    I am the Wikipedia definition of “Scatter Brained”. Or as some would say, I have a lot of irons in the fire.

    Or a lot of ideas in my brain.

    Scatter Brained – The inability to produce any coherant thought pattern. Often a side effect of, but definitely not limited to, alcohol or drug consumption.

    Except I don’t drink or do drugs. Awesome.

    Being that it’s Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share with y’all a few things that I am loving. And yes, they vary from Iced White Mochas to giant canvas prints to my love for New Kids On The Block.

    Let’s call this post – The Scattered Love Affair, shall we?

    This really has nothing to do with my random thoughts on painting, sports themed bedrooms or gallery walls. But, I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you, now does it?

    The Interim Canvas

    Entryway Design Ideas - Gallery Wall by

    For a very long time I refused to replace the family canvas that was hanging in my entryway.

    It was old. Very very verrrrrry old.

    As in, we were a family of three when the image was taken. See…. (more…)


    Life Lessons I Have Learned From My Kids

    I just tripped over a Matchbox car that was laying in the middle of my kitchen floor.

    I went to brush my teeth this morning only to find that someone {not naming any names middle child – ahem} had emptied the toothpaste into the bathtub.

    I found 3 dead worms in my son’s sock drawer {apparently having a dog wasn’t enough for him}. Not to mention that it’s winter so those worms have been there for awhile.

    My lunch today included a hot dog, a lunch-able and three white fudge oreos. And I may have had Starbucks twice.

    The last movie I saw in the theater was something by Pixar and I’m pretty sure it was rated G.

    Having kids has changed me in so many ways, especially having all boys. As you can tell my life isn’t always glamorous, but it’s most certainly better with my boys in it. And although there are many times when I feel frustrated by their silly ways {especially the dead worms – not cool not cool}, I try and always remember the joy that they bring to me.
