To catch you up.

My normal post's which include everything from adorable baby photos, stories about crazy's, and the happening in our house have been few and far between lately. Most of this is in part to the following:


So of course there will be some explaining here...
1) NO I did not return my nursing job at the hospital... Yes I know I told you all I was, and as a matter of fact, I myself thought I was, until another job sort of fell into my lap, that I pretty much had to take. 

2)While I cannot go into large details with you {per contractual agreement} I can tell you that I am the Administrative Assistant for the regional events/marketing director for a VERY large liquor distributor. This company owns many big name brands that you see every day, and is in the process of releasing a few more new products that I am very excited about. 

3)No my job does not consist of drinking all day.... 

4)My job is done from my home office, however there will be events to attend, and places to go, as well as errands to run.

So now that I have started and life is getting back to somewhat of a routine {if such even exists} I will be blogging more real life stories again. ... Hopefully close to the amount I was able to before.. we shall see. 

So just to catch you up to date...

I am full speed ahead planning E's Birthday party.. I cannot believe how fast the last 10 months have went by, I know I say it every month.. but this time hitting the double digit month numbers was a bit hard. I will of course be doing a birthday party recap post, and maybe a few more peaks here and there. 

We have been going to the pool at least 5 nights a week, my girl is a fish, and loves the water.. we have a lady bug floaty with a sun shield over the top and she loves it, I think this much time in the pool has also helped her walking skills which are really taking off.

We are about to start a pretty big project in our house, extending our hallway, redesigning our bedroom, and my office I will post pics!

Yesterday i started baby proofing the house, I bought half of BRU and came home .. thinking it would be asy but I feel some of this is adult proof too.

I have a bunch of other things to catch you all up on, but I will leave you with this for now....

I have started meal planning again, and trying new recipes I have never used before.. most are Weight watchers.. Last night we had WW Chicken Hash and loved it..

  • Snow Peas with ginger Dressing
  • Chicken Tomato Chowder
  • Corn Chowder
  • Stir Fry w/asparagus
