Thursday Ramblings

** Carsyn is already a daddy's girl and I'm ok with that. She took her first bottle last night and I'm going to be one of those pathetic mothers that says it saddened me a little. Its ok though-moments like this melt my heart!

** Fall is my favorite season but I'm a little sad that colder weather is settling in and Carsyn and I likely took our last stroll at the lake today. I'm thinking maybe some of you followers in sunny places can house swap with me (you know like in the movie The Holiday?)

** This is by far hands down the worst my hair has ever looked- I am overtaken by gray-I NEED A CUT/COLOR! I also understand why moms cut their hair off as Carsyn loves to tug mine already.

** Spare time has a whole new meaning- It used to mean a leisurely Saturday or Sunday filled with laying in the sun and reading. I have not read the first page of a book in over a month. This week I had an hour while Carsyn slept blissfully and bathed Elvis, changed every blown light bulb in the house, did a load of laundry, skimmed a Food Network magazine, and balanced my checkbook.

** Speaking of Elvis I am neglecting you-it pains me to say it. I envy all those out there who can balance their pets and their children- I cannot.

**In my attempt to find a Halloween costume to fit Carsyn I forgot to get her a trick or treat basket. I pathetically ordered one from PB Kids and had it sent overnight, it will not be monogrammed and I'm mad at myself- Mother of the year I am not.

** And while we are on the subject of mother of the year, Carsyn scratched her face today and brought blood. Cutting the child's fingernails is the most dreadful task known to man.

** I am so excited for the holiday season. I have already thought of decorating and making my Christmas wish list. Is it to early to watch Christmas vacation?

** I heart Cindy McCain (did anyone see her and Meghan on The Talk today?). I want to get that book!

** I recently purchased my first pair of Tory Burch flats. My sister has told me, but now I'm a believer-these shoes are comfy :)

** Today was housekeeper Thursday- We hired a lady to come in the very end of my pregnancy and I vowed it was temporary. I do not want to let her go.

** The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is of the best parts of Halloween (well that and my big sis's candy corn mix...ummm...big sis what happened this year?)

** Sleep deprivation is an evil monster-nuff said.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! I want a pair of TB flats. My sister recently got a pair and wears them all the time!

    I agree with you, it would be awesome to have a book club that revisted old favorites! That would be fun!

  2. I love your list. Don't worry about being super mom just yet. I think it takes a bit of time to kick in. Ya gotta get into the swing of things before you can be a master. And I love my TB flats. I've worn them to the ground.

  3. I finally got my hair done yesterday since before em was born. the 6 inch roots were starting to show
