First Day of Preschool

Today was Roman's first day of Preschool.
It started out with some rough negotiations to get him out of bed at 7:30. This boy normally sleeps until 10! He cried during his bath. What a night owl!
I was worried he was going to be upset when we left but he did just fine. When we rounded the corner to his school he got so excited and start yelling "There is my school!".
Lets hope this year continues to go great!

Modernizing my Guest Room

I have been in the remodeling mood lately. This was my latest project.

Total Cost: $147.

A few things I have learned this week..

1. Even kids this amazingly darling are just plain stickers. Potty training is not working out for us. He knows how to go.. he knows where to go.. he just can't plain be bothered. He has reeeally important things to do, ok. He is busy. He has to make messes. Today he did request to wear big boy unders all day though. There is something remotely wrong about when your child can bring you a clean pull up and tell you in clear English to change him. Not ok on so many levels.

2.. Even 2 weeks after nose surgery- it hurts like HELL when your above mentioned son bumps your recovering nose.

3. What exactly the surgeon did to my nose. See below. The nose surgery was a piece of cake. The tonsils are wretched. Still sore. BLAH!

4. I positively loved Posh's new fall collection. I heart this dress. I need to lose 100lbs so I can think about losing another 50lbs so that I can wear this dress.

5. Jon Hamm. Is the man. Of my dreams. Oh my, oh my.

6. Dreyer's Real Fruit Lime Popsicles are out of this world.

7. Jon Hamm needs to be my lover. End of conversation.

7. I can't stop reading the Go Fug Yourself website. Its downright amazing.

Thoroughly Modern Jessie

I decided to update my bedroom.. My traditional style is slowly evolving to a hybrid Traditional/Modern. I wish I had before pictures, it basically was a Renaissance style room with the tan paint. I did this project for under $200.

Whaaa Whaaa Whaaat?

Poor David Beckham.

According to E! News, "David Beckhams Junk got Jostled", an Italian Journalist attacked his "junk". The journalist wanted to see if his manhood lived up to his Armani underwear ads.
She wore yellow rubber gloves.
She got arrested.
I hope she publishes her story so we can know the truth.
This is what I call hands on reporting.

What a girl wants..

I know Christmas just came and went. I just can't help the things that catch my eye and make me wish and wonder and obsess over them for hours. Ok. Not really but kinda.

This Jenny McCarthy work-out system. I am sure if I had this I would drop these last 5lbs... or make that 100lbs..

This pretty duvet set from Kohls.

These Rachael Ray serving spoons. Splendid.

BoysIIMen are coming to Wendover. I must go to this concert. I MUST. Flashbacks to my youth!

This Shabby Apple Dress. Oh my goodness. Must get Jenny McCarthy workout system so I can buy the largest size of this dress.

This mix of Juicey Tubes. Yummo!

These darling Uggs. If you live by me you know I wear my Fushia Uggs nearly everyday. This is their 4th winter and still going strong. Sometimes the real thing just keeps going strong. I wonder if I could wear them in the summer?

I'm not sure how P'Dub does it..

How does The Pioneer Woman keep her house all clean and shiney and fabulous while cooking? An all day baking fest for holiday treats/gifts left this aftermath in my home. She has fabulous hair too..

I have numerous resolutions this year.. weight.. exercise.. clean house.. ect. I read this quote again and decided to add being less superficial to that long list as well.

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
— Marjorie Pay Hinckley
