Its been a while.

Hello, Hello, anyone out there? For realz

How the hell has everyone been? Its seriously been a while. But, I promise, I've got great excuses! lol.

Computer situation...
There for a while I was computer-less, because my laptop crashed :/. Then, my ex-step-mother-in-law let us use her old desktop, and guess what? Somehow she had it set up with an encryption on google, so any google sites, I could not use. I did have an android, but have you ever tried to blog from your cell phone? Not fun.
For christmas DH got me an iPad, but that was difficult to blog on as well, imo. But, now I have no worries, because I bought myself a iMac :D!!! I love it sooo much. AND, a new camera, so now I don't have an excuse for not blogging, or posting pictures on my blog....

Whats been going on in my life?
Jordan finally got a job in August (after being laid off for almost a year), the only bad thing to it was her had to drive an 1hr 30 minutes one way to get there. So, on December 9th (one of the happiest days in my life besides the birth of my kids) we moved! It is another apartment, but I like it a lot better because of the location & it is a townhouse, so it feels more like a home.
Then, of course there is Christmas, then New Years.. and guess what is next? Kaelans birthday! Thats right, my baby turned 1 on Feb. 9th (this past friday). Such a bittersweet day!

I promise, I've been planning (for a while) to get back to blogging, but everything has just been so hectic! Hope there are still people out there reading! I'm back, for good (hopefully).

^ Kaelan after her cake!

 ^Emma & our new puppy, Bella.

^ Our new fur babies, Bella (3 mon. old Shihtzu) & Bo (8 wk old Beagle)

Much love,  from my home to yours. 
Talk to you guys soon!

Whats goin' onnnn?

This week month has been so hectic. I've been trying to get my life together to make a one day trip to WV for my cousins baby shower. I'm leaving Friday afternoon, coming back Saturday night. DH volunteered to watch the children on Saturday and I just couldn't say no.

He is going to drop the girls off at his step-moms on his way to work Friday so I can leave earlier than what was originally planed (1 am Saturday morning).. I should be back around Saturday night. Little break, can't complain, lol. PLUS, my best friend, Brittany gets to go with me. (Thank God for baby sitters, lol)

So, I have just been trying to pull this house together for the past month, haven't had much luck. This is my schedule for the next 3 days...

(the rest of) Wednesday - Keep everything picked up, Laundry.
Thursday - vacuum, sweep, mop, pick up. Get the girls clothes/food/snacks, etc together.
Friday- Get up, get the girls fed, send them on their way by 1:30.
   2pm: Shower, get ready, finish packing, load the car.
   3pm: Brittanys arrival. do all the last minute things..
                be out of here by 3:30 - 4.
  Then, I have to meet up with my dad, spend some time with him. Danielle (my bf from wv) gets off work at 7. Go out to eat with Danielle, Kayla, Amanda (all friends from WV) & Brit.... Then head to my final destination.

Sounds like a plan.

Cleaning day.

Yep, you read right. Today is the day that I'm getting off my lazy bum, and making this place look a lot less like a frat-pad. lol

My husband started 2nd shift at work today.. After a while of being laid-off, this place is a wreck. I wont clean clean when he's home, I'm working on that tho.

I plan on cleaning every room today and organizing some tonight.. I might just post before & after pictures, who knows. We are in the process of giving our living room furniture away and getting new. So far we've only got the love seat out... So, all we have now is a couch. Since we rarely us the dining room (unless crafts for emma) I'm gonna bring two of the chairs out into the living room to substitute... I'm sure I can make it work.

Jordan wont be home until around 1 am tonight, so be prepared for another blog post. I'm hoping to be done by around 6... We will see.

Happy cleaning!

Need Ideas,

I need some help, and can't seem to find anyone who could give me the advice.

Getting my daughters on a schedule, for sleeping & such.
Getting my 22 month old to sleep in her room, by her self.
Getting myself on a cleaning schedule.

I want so badly to have a daily routine for everything. My house is always a wreck, no matter how much I clean. My kids want to stay up til 4 in the morning. I have no "me" time (which ALL mothers love to have). My house-hold is so dis-functional and un-organized that I'm constantly in a bad mood. I cannot get motivation to do anything! Because of this, I am constantly in bitch mode, and its killing my marriage. I can't sleep for the list of things that need to be done running through my head.

Please, fellow moms, help a sister out.

Long time no blog,

Fo' Reaaaaal.

I've been wanting to come back for a while, but just wanted to make sure that I would be back for good & not a here and there post. A lot has been going on here lately, and I mean a lot. lol

Girls are growing like crazy, Emma is now 22 months & Kaelan is almost 6 months.

A lot has went on lately, I had a job, but it was a little too ghetto for this white girl. Phone got stolen, got another. Back glass got busted out, got it fixed. Dropped the new phone in the toilet, fml. My aunt & uncle (that are basically like my parents) are divorcing.

On the plus side, my husband finally found a decent job, after being laid off for almost a year, at Freight liner. (can you hear the hallelujah chorus?) So we are starting to get our life back together.

People can tell, when you autobell.

Khloe, my niece and Emma, waiting at auto bell.

My SIL called today and told me that there was a Auto Bell GRAND OPENING about 20 minutes away from my house and they we're doing FREE CAR WASHES! Nothing excites a mom more than a FREE car wash. (or maybe I'm just weird and lazy) So, of course I jumped up, nappy head and all and drove 20 minutes to get my free car wash.

Welp, they had this sign before you pulled in that said "All unwanted trash, please throw in floor." I did. When I got back in my car, guess where all that trash was? In my seat. Are you serious, foo'? I just drove my nappy head 20 minutes down the road to get my free car wash, when there is an auto bell beside my apartment (it wouldn't have been free), for you to throw my trash in my seat?

My new life lessons on that;
1. Quit being so dang lazy and comb that nappy head before you get out in public.
     - Maybe that's why they didn't throw my trash away. They wanted to get me in and out of there asap, I must have been scaring them away.
2. Clean my own car, for free.
3. Never go to a free car wash. What should I expect? it was free.

Kaelan, being cute :)

Messy Rooms & Rainbows

My silly girl, Emma.

So, today was the day that I've dreaded for about 2 weeks. I had to go through all of our totes in the closet, and get out the summer clothes. I got them all out, but they are still laying in Emmas bedroom floor. Poor kid wont even play in her own room its so messy.

Hubby wanted me to go to blockbuster and rent Happy Feet (because he has never watched it, and has been aggravating me since the day that we got married, to rent it. now that we have kids that's his excuse.) and another animated movie, for some reason I cant remember the name. Anywho, I walked out and saw a beautiful rainbow!

Then, it was at the end of our road, and I totally held up traffic to take a picture. I know, I'm a dork.
