July 30th

I got a haircut today. Fender is now 3 1/2 months old and my hair is starting to fall out. Oh joy! I got tired of finding my long hair all over the place. At least when I do find my hair, it won't be as long! I love the salon that I went to! I've lived in the town I lived in for 1 1/2 years now and I haven't been to a salon that I loved. They were all just meh. 

I want to post some pictures, but the hubby has my camera right now. He's at the county fair, seeing the country musician, Josh Thompson. We are taking the boys to the fair tomorrow, because it's kids day. I hope that it's not excruciatingly hot.

Hunter, my oldest, came out of his room a few minutes ago to tell me that he has a shadow on his wall that looks like a wiener. Really? Boys will be boys? I dunno, it's been the weirdest thing out of his mouth.

I'm super duper happy! I won an Ergo baby carrier from Babes in Disneyland! I only own hotslings, which I love, but I've been wanting an Ergo for quite some time now!

Fuming over a cupcake taggie

Two years ago, when Ryder was a baby, I bought this cute cupcake taggie off ebay. 

Yes, it's pink and oh so girly. I had to have it, because I love cupcakes.  I figured it would be ok for him to play with while we were at home. I gave it to him a few times, but thankfully, he preferred a Disney Cars taggie I got from a craft fair. Thankfully? Yes, thankfully because today I discovered this... 

Not one, but two freakin' pins were left in it! 

I'm so pissed that this lady was so careless. It's an item made for babys! I remember being aggravated about this purchase in the first place. It took  her a month to send it and she sent the wrong one. Now I'm pissed off at this damn cupcake all over again. I'm also pissed off at myself for not inspecting this, or any other hand sewn item I have bought in the past. I don't know if it ever poked Ryder while he was playing with it.  Just thinking about it sickens me. 

I love homemade items. It's not going to discourage me from buying homemade items. In fact I purchased a few items off Etsy last night.

The moral of that story is to inspect your handmade items for pins!

This is hilarious!

Five Question Friday!

This is my first Five Question Friday!

1. Do you collect anything?

Cupcakes! Well cupcake decor. My kitchen is done in cupcakes!

2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.

I dig guys with tattoos. The hubs doesn't have that many. For a good reason though, his job.

 Anywho, these are the guys...

Travie McCoy. 

Davey Havok. 

Travis Barker. 

3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them?)?

I don't really have many scars. My biggest one is a little one above my left eye. Luckily, you can't really see it because of my eyebrow. I got this one when I was in the 3rd grade. I was playing baseball at recess. I decided to be the catcher (with no equipment.) I got too close to a hitter taking a practice swing and BAM! The next thing I know is that I'm at a hospital getting stitches. I can remember clearly not wanting them because I thought the stitches were made of cat guts. 

4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird?

It's not too weird I guess, but vegetarian "meat." I love pretty much every vegetarian faux meat. 

5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life?

Being that I'm from the midwest, yes. I've been in a few, but have only seen one. I must have been about 16ish. My dad and I were coming back from shopping on a Sunday. As we got closer to home it started getting dark. A hard, sudden storm hit us. We were seriously 2 miles from our house. My dad wanted to pull over. I insisted that we drive home, since we were so close. We were driving at a really slow pace, because we were being hammered with rain and hail. Not to mention the wind was blowing his little 'ol Cavalier all over the road. Then we see it. The tornado off in a distance. Thankfully, it was heading in the opposite direction. If we had been driving any faster, we would have actually drove up on it. Scary!

Fender is 3 months old

Fender turned 3 months old on the 11th! I can't believe that he's that old already! It seems like yesterday that I was waiting patiently for his arrival.

Every month on the 11th, I take a picture of Fender next to Brobee. (Yo Gabba Gabba character! It's Ryder's. He's obsessed with YGG!) He's getting so big. He has outgrown all newborn cloths. He just grew out of his pajama gowns. I'm sad. I love, love, love gowns. They are super easy for nighttime diaper changes. Oh, speaking of diapers, he's officially outgrown Kissaluv size 0. :tear: It's going to be bittersweet getting rid of them, since he's our last kid.

He loves this



On a sidenote, I am growing sandwich sprouts! I got the seeds at a local health food store. They should be entirely grown and ready to eat in 5 days...well it's 3 more days now.

Day 1

Day 2.

Cotton Babies $1 for well loved BG 3.0

If you live in the St. Louis area, go to Cotton Babies on July 17th! Be there at 9 a.m. to get well loved Bumgenius 3.0 for $1!

You have to get there early. The line starts forming very early. If you get there and the line is down the side of the store and in the parking lot, don't be discouraged. Stand in line still. They had a TON of diapers in the past.

Also on that day you can pick up the 4.0! I don't need anymore 3.0s. I do want to go just to pick up a 4.0! I may ask my mom if she wants to come. We haven't had a day shopping together since before I had Fender!

Shortly, after I found out that I was pregnant with Fender last fall. Cotton Babies did a $1 sale. I was super excited. Ryder at the time pretty much turned 1. I knew that I would have 2 in diapers by the time the baby got here. My stash at the time wasn't very big. It was good enough for just Ryder. The $1 sale couldn't have came at a better time. I stood in line for over an hour, but it was well worth the wait!

I'm not sure why some are deemed as well loved. Most of mine were in good condition. The velco in a few were shot. No biggie at all for $1! I have 50 diapers in my stash that are well-loved!

My 4th

My 4th of July was very laid back. My husband and I cooked some BBQ. I made the boys kiddy strawberry daiquiris. They were really bland. They needed something else, but I couldn't put my finger on it. The boys didn't seem to mind at all.

Luckily, we were able to watch our town's big firework show from our back porch!

Hunter waiting for them to start!

Billy and Ryder watching the fireworks!

Hunter was so excited. You could see the fireworks all over the sky!

Fender on his first 4th of July!

Hunter watching from the slide. 

Poor little Ryder couldn't stay up to watch them.

I attempted to take pictures of the fireworks. That was a big fail. 

The fireworks setting on my camera does not work. I've had the camera since November and I've been excited to take pictures of fireworks since it had it's own setting. 8 months of waiting for nothing lol.

F is for Fender

Yesterday, I was taking pictures of Fender. He loves music, so I always keep the Leapfrog Fridge DJ near by. It was playing the ABCs at the time. I didn't notice until I was looking through the pictures that it was on the letter F.
