New books

I'm such a nerd, but new books excite me.

Even if they aren't for me, and they are for my 8 year old, i still get excited.

I ordered some new books for him and they just arrived today.

My weekend will be spent reading these books, just to make sure he will be able to read them without any problems.

Here is the list of books:

1. The boy who held back the sea by Thomas Locker
2. The drinking gourd by F. N. Monjo
3. The bravest dog ever; The true story of Balto by Natalie Standiford
4. The bears on Hemlock mountain by Alice Dalgliesh
5. The hardy boys; The tower treasure by Franklin W. Dixon

I've read really great reviews on all these books, but i'll let you know what i think of them once i'm done.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today was pretty much a normal day for us, we had school, but after we finished our work we had some fun!! We played some games (we did our own Valentine version of Minute To Win It.) and ate some candy (and when i say some i really mean A LOT). Here are some pictures of our Valentines Day!

The boys working hard on their morning calendars!

Pencils all decorated!

Boogie Man working on Silly Sentences 

This one was his, it says "The Car Jumped Quickly to the Movies".

This one was Super Guys, it says "The Teacher Flipped Sadly to the Playground".

Working on Valentines Cards for each other. 

Playing one of our "Minute to Win It" games.. For this game you have to stack conversation hearts on top of each other and whoever has the tallest stack after 60 seconds wins!

Next "Minute to Win It" game... Bite the ends off Valentine Candy Corn and stick it to a paper plate, whoever makes it furthest around in 60 seconds wins!

Best Friends Forever!!! :-)

Valentines Popcorn 

Red Velvet Milkshakes for dessert!! Yum!!

Hope you had a GREAT Valentines Day!! And more importantly that you were able to spend it with the ones you LOVE!! :-)

Pregnancy *21 Weeks*

Only 19 more weeks to go!!! Time is just flying by!!

21 Weeks


Baby is about the size of a carrot.
Baby should be measuring about 10 1/2 inches long.
Baby should weigh almost 1 pound.


Heartburn, &
Round Ligament Pain. Are just some of the things I've been experiencing lately.

Hopes for this week:

The insomnia has me pretty tired, so i hope to catch up on some sleep this week.


Room Decorating

This is what i've been doing lately. Trying to figure out how to decorate the boys' room. They have a bunk bed and they are at different stages, so i think that is making it more difficult.

 For example my youngest son is still into the character decor (angry birds, obviously), while my oldest isn't anymore.

My oldest hasn't really had a complete bedding set since he was like 4, lately he has just been using random blankets, etc.

So the search has been on lately for a: non-character, non-babyish, non-adult bedding set.. And let me tell you, its been difficult.

He decided he wanted an Ocean/Water animal theme. Everything we had found was either too little kid or too adult... But then we found one he really liked....

We all really liked it, but i wasn't about to spend $300 on a bedding set. So the search continued...

 Then  yesterday  i happened to stumble upon the PERFECT bedding. Great price (under $20) and it had the water animal theme (alligators). Check it out...

Not bad right? Now my newest mission is to decorate their room (lamp, picture frames, etc.) in something that will match my youngest's bedding (angry birds) and my oldest's bedding (the alligator one).

So for that i'm thinking just to go with a blue theme because both of their bedding has blues in it. What do you think?


*The first bedding pictured is from The Land of Nod and the second bedding pictured is from Ikea.*
