This day has gone to hell in a handbasket

I was up with both kids numerous times last night, once for an hour with Lily. I am frustrated and exhausted. Ethan didn't nap and he woke up Lily who only got an hour of sleep. I didn't get to sleep at all. It is hot in this house and I need a shower.

I just bathed the kids and Ethan splashed water everywhere, soaking me, the floor, and the walls of the bathroom.

I've got two more hours until bedtime and I may not survive.

Friday Five: first birthday edition

1. Tomorrow we are celebrating baby girls first birthday with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and a cousin.

2. I still need to start/finish sewing baby girls birthday gifts

3. I made strawberry lemon, chocolate, and will be making lemon drop cupcakes, yum!

4. We painted our deck and installed lattice work last week. It's something we've been meaning to do for awhile and an upcoming backyard birthday party was a great motivator.

5. Once the party is over I think I will need a vacation. I've been stressing out over it all week.

Friday Five

1. I just sang the entire Brady Bunch theme song from memory.
I.  Am.  Awesome!

2. I am feeling incredibly tired and annoyingly hyper all at once. I fear I am going to crash this afternoon.

3. I cleaned half of my kitchen this morning. I have no immediate plans to clean the other half.

4. I need to convince my husband that we should buy a large mirror to decorate our living room with.

5. I think I am going to go do the laundry and each sherbet.

Have a great weekend!

Friday Five

1. The kids and I went to the library today and picked up our logs for the summer book club. I'm so excited to get started!

2. I bought a double jogging stroller off of Craigslist for twelve bucks. Twelve bucks!  How awesome is that?!

3. Baby girl doesn't nap. Ever. Ok, maybe for 40 minutes a day, tops. That is not enough sleep.

4. I plan on decorating E's toddler bed with "choo, choo's" in hopes that he will want to sleep in it.

5. I am almost done sewing baby girl's first birthday dress. It is adorable, I can't wait to share!

Friday Five

1. I'm trying to drink less pop, namely Dr. Pepper. This was my first week and it is hard!

2. Baby girl jammed her finger up my nose yesterday. It hurt. A lot. And caused my nose to bleed for a good 5-10 minutes.

3. I am exhausted. Like, "Can I just crawl into bed now and sleep into Saturday morning?", exhausted.

4. I have so much laundry to put away. So much.

5. I discovered the baby esp app this week. I am in love! I feel like I can finally accurately track the kids schedules or lack thereof and get things on track.

Friday Five

1. I'm writing this on my phone while rocking baby girl to sleep.

2. E is eating a fruit chiller and watching Madame Blueberry.

3. Today I cleaned my bathroom for the first time in . . . well, let's just say it had been awhile.

4. I still need to clean the hall bathroom that my hubby and the kids use.

5. We went on 2 walks today. One this morning and one right before supper. E was in heaven, loves the great outdoors!

Friday five: Easter edition

1. Easter is my favorite holiday.

2. Every year my parents have an Easter egg hunt for myself, my husband, our kids, my sisters and brother. It's basically awesome.

3. My moms birthday falls on the day before Easter this year.

4. My son was born 8 days Easter. I was absolutely brokenhearted that I couldn't go home for Easter, I spent the afternoon in tears.

5. I started baby girls Easter dress 3 weeks ago. I should probably finish sewing it try tomorrow.

Friday Five

Friday's are usually my favorite blog days, in between Friday Fives, what do you think, and weekly wrap up's everything seem to fall into place.

So, in an effort to start blogging again I've decide to so my own Friday Five.

1. This week has been long, yesterday while having lunch with my mom I though out was Tuesday. It was not, thank you Lord!

2. I'm feeling very challenged as a mom, I have a defiant almost 2 year old and a 9 month old who hates going to sleep. Awesome.

3. Yesterday, in the middle of crying babies and loads of frustration I work 3 pages worth of heartache, vents, and complaints. I felt better. . . and then today came.

4. I'm currently soaking in the tub and it is awesome.

5. My son turns two in 12 days. Crazy.
I should probably get started on his birthday.
