Random Facts

1. In the morning time I sing like an old lady opera singer.  Usually hymns.
I think I missed my calling as an opera singer.
I kid.
Kind of ;)
There's nothing like a rousing rendition of "Up from the grave He arose" with lots of vibrato
 to get your morning going :)

2. I very rarely read blogs even though I blog.
I just seem to run out of time.
But my favorites that I do check every day are...

3. As of lately I've had a terrible case of baby fever.
I thought I was fine when Cade turned one.
But newborn babies keep popping up all around me.
And there is nothing like a sweet smelling baby with their precious little lips!
Ah man.

4. I LOVE cleaning and laundry products.
Especially really good smelling ones.
My idea of a good time involves going to the store by myself
to pick out some new cleaning/laundry products.
Have you heard about the new Scent Boosters by Downy?
I'm in love with them!
You can sprinkle as much or as little as you want into your wash.
I bought the Fresh scent and it is lovely!
You really just need a little sprinkle.

5. I've been trying to lose my last 10 pounds of baby weight.
Really it's weight from being pregnant with Colt that never came off before I got pregnant with Cade.
I'm pretty sure it's super glued itself to me.
I've been trying to eat healthier than I normally do.
Which means less Dr. Peppers and chips and dip.
I could eat a Veggie Patty sandwich, potato chips, sour cream chip dip and a Dr. Pepper for every meal and never be tired of it.
But this needs to change.
So instead I've been eating salads as of lately.
For breakfast I've been eating an omelete loaded with spinach, a bit of avacado
 and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
Talk about delicious!

6. I was driving around with the kids the other night burning time and found the sweetest house.
The color of the darker blue part is a tad off... in real life it looks tealish/turquoise.
I could dream about old houses and fixing them up all day!


Also... wanted to let y'all know...
 My friends Sarah and Carina are hosting a super fun meal planning link up.
Everyone links up with their menu plans.
How cool is that?!
If you're needing some new ideas head over and you'll find plenty.

It's a rainy day over here.
The perfect day to get our house cleaned up for the weekend.
Back to random facts.
I have a no cleaning policy on the weekends.
Obviously the usual dishes and making of beds.
But that's it.
Which makes Friday our deep cleaning day.

What's up for your weekend?


  1. Hi there!
    Stopping by from LifeRearranged...your omelet looks AMAZING! You've also made me want to use the Downy Scent Boosters...maybe laundry will be more fun then! Have a great weekend!


  2. I miss your singing. I could hear you singing up from the grave when you said that haha. Happy Friday sweet friend!

  3. i have the worst baby fever too! my youngest is now out of diapers so i think it has something to do with her being a "big girl" now. it's fun to peruse the baby aisles in the meantime :) have a great weekend!

  4. You can come and clean my house if you like?Rx

  5. I'm going to buy those smellies today!!! And that omlette looks delish!!!! As for baby fever, go ahead have another!!!

  6. Friday mornings are usually my deep cleaning days too. I like to just relaz on the weekends and only concentrate on laundry. Oh, and that house is gorgeous. I wish I had money to buy old houses, fix them up and resell them. It would be my dream job. :)

  7. Yum. That omelette looks amazing. I would be very happy eating that for breakfast every morning. :D
