Well well well..

It seems I have pregnancy brain (I swear being pregnant lowers my IQ significantly, ask my sister) and it's causing a writers block! I feel so out of touch with the blogging world! But I really hope it gets back to normal soon cause I miss it! So for now I'll leave you with some awesome pics..

4. Avon  eyeshadows, the mystery compact.

5. Mary Kay nail polish in Lava.

Music Monday

I don't know why but I love when someone who is totally not rap/r&b does a cover of that type of song.. So I thought I'd share one that I really like!

It's ok Thursday..

It's ok that I've been an absent blogger.. I went on a road trip with my sister and I'm growing a human, that's exhausting!

It's ok that I'm a little depressed about the 3 inches of freakin snow we got last night! I'm tired of the wet weather and I'm ready for spring and summer and playing outside and barbecues and doing stuff with friends!

It's ok that I recorded the sound of my babies heart beat with my phone so that I could listen to it whenever I want.

It's ok that I want my husband to get my maternity clothes out of the attic! They're more comfy!

It's definitely ok that I want to eat fruits and veggies for practically every snack/meal.

It's ok that it's 10am and I haven't gotten dressed yet.. (I've been busy reading blogs and watching House Hunters)

It's ok that I would love to move to a bigger house with some property.

It felt so good to blog again. Glad I did it!

Its Ok Thursdays

Urgent Care

On Saturday Lyla had to go to Urgent Care for the first time! Adam and I bought an enclosed trailer for the race car and we were showing it to his parents.. Lyla was playing, running up and down the ramp, going in and out and tripped and her chin broke her fall.. She immediately started crying and before I even saw that she was bleeding really bad from her chin I had scooped her up and carried her in the house to see if she was hurt. Then I saw the blood and my heart just sank.. My poor baby's shirt was covered in blood. My mother in law and I got her in on the counter and started cleaning it with a warm towel to see if it was deep enough to need to take her in.. It was.

Surprisingly she only cried for a few minutes. Grandma gave her a popsicle and we got her in the car and went to urgent care. The whole  way there she was just worried cause we had left our dog at grandma's! She thought we forgot him.

She was such a trooper the whole time! Didn't cry at all when they cleaned it. We had the option for them to put 2 stitches in it our just glue it. We chose glue it because it's supposed to leave less of a scar. My shy little girl was even talking to the nurse and the doctor.

Trying to keep her fingers out of her mouth
Deciding on stitches or if glue will be enough
All done!

Daddy didn't want her to have to wear her bloody shirt the rest of the day so he went into the store to get a new one and Lyla and I waited in the car. He took so long that she fell asleep! He ended up getting her a shirt and new pajamas! Oh and crackers for himself!

I was honestly shocked at how well I did during all this! I didn't even tear up.. I usually do when she gets hurt. I think I get an A+ for the day.

Sooo excited!!

Tonight I'm going to the airport to fly overnight to Atlanta, spend 2 hours at the airport and then!! And then! I'm flying to Pennsylvania to drive cross country with my sister and my pug niece and nephews! My sisters husband is going to be stuck in Hawaii for who knows how long (he's a marine) and she decided she wanted to be closer to her family (she was living with her in-laws). So! Yep.. we're driving from Pennsylvania to Oregon! In hopefully 3 days. My mom arranged her days off so that she'd have 4 days off in a row to watch Lyla. I've never been away from both Adam and Lyla at the same time though so that'll be weird. I'm going to take lots of pics so be on the lookout for a post about the trip!
