OH Where Oh Where have I been

Hi everyone. Again. I know it is been a really long time since I blogged, and  a few weeks before that I was gone as well. I guess life has just been taking over. Which is perfectly fine with me. I also have been trying to stay off the internet as much as possible. With Andrew on summer break, we have been doing lots of fun things together and staying busy. I try to give him as much attention as a can, and keep my phone away. Also,I have about ZERO energy at the end of the night (apparently I may have to wait a YEAR after surgery to get this all back. UGH.)

I know I have lots of new things to tell you guys! Especially about a new guy I have been seeing 🙂 But here are just a few things Andrew and I have been up to……

    • 4th Of July with my family


    • Andrew’s last 3rd grade baseball game


    • Flowers from the new guy 🙂


    • Evil looking cat


    • Getting ready for the garage sale


    • Pool time


    • Andrew’s other baseball team, the Cardinals


    • First, wedding of the season, my mom braided my hair. With a messy bun in the back. I loved it!


So that is just ALITTTTLLE bit that has been going on here. Tell me, what is new with you?

Question for you:

What is the biggest most exciting thing that happened this summer so far?



Walking the field

A few nights ago, Andrew and I were able to walk the field with his baseball team. There were tons of kiddos from other teams, it was packed! We first walked underneath the stadium


I don’t remember the last time I have been down on the field. Probably when I was Andrew’s age!

After walking the field, we headed up to our seats. We actually sat in the section with his school.

We had a blast! But mostly the kiddos played, and the parents chatted.

But I had so much fun being out of the house, being with other parents, and seeing Andrew happy with his friends 🙂

Question for you:
Have you ever been on a major league field/court/rink before?

Gift for Andrew

Today was my last 12 hour shift before a long break with Andrew. First, I went through a quite busy shift, but don’t work, I survived!

I ran from work to Andrew’s school to meet with the other mom’s to make a rosary for the kids receiving First Communion in a few weeks.

I was EXTREMELY overwhelmed when I first entered Schaefer’s Craft Shop a week ago

But tonight, I think it all came together


I even put his initials


I think he will definitely like the Cardinals theme


Look at those cheeks!

Question for you:

What theme would you use if you would put a rosary together?

(I know that not everyone is Catholic or has a religion, I just was wondering what theme is close to you)

Commerical Workout

Well friends, you should have seen me this week.

Sick + no workouts+ no sleep + eating horrible= a sneezing crying flabby mess haha

Today I am beginning to feel much better. Food choices included pizza and ice cream.

I MEAN COME ON!!! get it together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, instead of having a pity party. I watched the Cardinals in the Wild Card game (it was an ugly game-did anyone see it?)

During the commerical (and delay) breaks, I decided to get up and MOVE

1.) Jumping jacks: 50

2.) Squats: 50

3.) Butt lifts: 100

4.) Push ups: 2×25

5.)Leg lowers: 2x 25

Even though this helped me feel better, I really need to kick it into to gear. I am getting flabbier just thinking about it! haha

Question for you: (pick one, or all!)

-Have you ever tried a commerical workout?

– How are you staying active?

– What are you doing this weekend?


I have several things to update you on! another date. my halloween costume. and some yummy treats for a girls night!

its almost midnight, and last night I only got about 4 hours sleep (more on that tomorrow). So I need to hit the hay.

Today was a day to celebrate the Cardinals! I dont know if you heard, but the Cardinals won the World Series. So my mom, Andrew, my nephew, and I headed downtown for the parade!

It was  a sea of RED



 Of course some of the smaller people couldnt see, so I had to lift a 50lb kid on my shoulders 😦

 Don’t we look comfortable haha

 We had a pretty good time. Love the Cards

 My nephew is also in this stage where he repeats everything. We got him to say OH.MY.GOSH. and I be jammin’. It was pretty funny.

Question for you:

What did you do this weekend?



Remember yesterday. when I said I hit the snooze button multiple times before work?. well….. I slept through that alarm (and the 2nd I set just in case) and I woke up at 6:35. (normally up at 5:50)

I was beat from work yesterday, and slept through my alarms. I never do that!

I usually leave my house at 6:15. Today I left at 6:45.

SOOOO that would mean. I was late for work, but only by 7 minutes. I ended up clocking in at 7:07. Darn it.

(that comes down to getting up at 6:35, work at 7:07.  No too shabby, but still a red box on my time card. Darn it.)

Even though my day started off a little rough, I didn’t let it get me down and I had a good day. Same sick baby as yesterday, but he was having a MUCH better day.

And then I got a GREAT phone call.

Andrew lost his second tooth!
(its the small things in life)

And then after picking him up (and searching for his tooth because he lost it- no luck) we changed into our PJs and watched part of the Cardinals game in my bed.

Well we wrote a note to the tooth fairy, so hopefully she remembers 🙂

Question for you:

Do you remember losing your baby teeth? Did you leave it for the tooth fairy?

Have you ever been late for work?
