A Few Secrets

I'm a pretty open person. I like to think what you see is what you get. I think my blog persona is close to my real life persona, but for those of you who do not "know" me I'm a bit of a space cadet, somewhat of a control freak, and lastly, much to my detriment- a shopaholic. Here are a few things that have been going on in my life lately:

**I used to be obsessed with housecleaning- I would wake up at 6:30 am and clean house before going on vacation- that has not happened in years. Now, I am guilty of using Elvis as my vacuum cleaner. Seriously, he works great in the kitchen! When I'm cooking and drop something I know he'll lick it right up-even raw onions! I also used to be the queen of ironing-even pjs! Now, my "to be ironed" pile has been sitting there for like 6 weeks.

**I really need to get back running..and I have not done any yoga since about my second trimester. I think if I tried a down dog I would snap in half! I really, really miss running but yesterday it was rainy and gloomy out and the treadmill looked so unappealing. I just snuggled on the sofa with baby girl and felt no guilt about it. There'll always be that half marathon I've trained for but never ran, but Carsyn will only be a baby once- I don't want to miss one precious moment.

** I'm so excited Christmas is upon us. I cannot miss any of those cheesy Lifetime and Hallmark channel movies. I went to the Holly Day market this weekend and sipped eggnog latte and listened to Christmas music the whole way home.

** Speaking of the whole way home-its totally safe to drive 100 miles with one hand on the steering wheel and the other stretched in the backseat forcing a paci down your babies throat, right? I decided to make the trip out of town without the hubby because he had to work- first trip over 50 miles alone with baby girl and she decided to pitch 2 big fits on me..Oh well, I survived- and she slept really great that night. Now I'm telling myself when she pitches big fits that just means a better night's rest :)

** I am completely obsessing over what to wear for our Christmas picture. More importantly, what Carsyn is going to wear. The photos are scheduled for this Sunday-Yikes! I know its lame but I keep telling myself this is Carsyn's first Christmas card and I want it to be special.

** I think my mind is slowly returning to normal as I am beginning to get more sleep. A few weeks ago I pulled into Burger King and ordered Long Johns (in my defense they are right next to each other and both have blue awnings). When I asked if the number 11 was the sampler the lady replied-um that would be the whopper embarrassed!

** And lastly, I take way too many pictures of Carsyn and email them to people. I apologize if anyone is getting bored with this..

But who could resist??


  1. How could anyone ever get tired of photos of that sweet baby girl?!?! She's adorable.

  2. awwww look at her fancy little outfit

  3. Enjoy being a new mom...with all it's craziness...LOL. I had a rough night thinking about my baby graduating this year...cried myself to sleep! :o(

    They grow up so fast!

  4. Awww, she's so cute! I'd take a ton of pictures of her too! I can't believe you used to clean like that before vacation. I'm in awe. I'm so excited about the holidays too. Good luck in dressing Carsyn for the picture! I'm sure she'll look adorable whatever she wears.


  5. Great list and i love how you seem to have your priorities straight. I love Carsyn's bedding. Gorgeous!

  6. Super sweet baby. BTW don't let your dog eat the onions because they are poisonous for dogs (grapes too).
