Happy Birthday to my HOT Hubby!

Yesterday was Keith's 29th birthday..although we don't have a ton of moola this year,we still had a great time! Here's the timeline ::
Morning: Keith woke up to a HUGE breakfast of a big fat steak, over easy eggs,kiwi,cinnamon-sugar toast,and a big glass of milk. We all ate and then it was time for presents! He got 3 pairs of desperately needed dress sock from me and a nice new vandy-colored polo from Kruise and Noah..not much,but he was thrilled,,that's my hubby,so happy to have anything!
Afernoon: Keith's idea of a great day is staying in his p.j.'s and playing his computer game with no interruptions,so that's exactly what we let him do! Me and wild-man played and took a nice long nap,for alot of he day,which I have to say, I didn't mind!
Evening:I initially was going to make him his favorite,and not much received,dinner of hamburgers and homemade french fries, but decided at the last minute,dinner somewhere semi-nice downtown would be alot more special, especially considering we don't get to go out much,especially downtown,so I did some quick researching via the internet,and decided the old spaghetti factory would be our best bet..I got all dolled up, dressed up Kruise and did his hair, Keith put on his new polo , and we went out! We had a pretty good dinner, def. not "fine dining",but it was yummy, we have lots of leftovers,and the atmosphere was fun..Kruise loved all the lights and watching all the people running around on 2nd,he was full of it! We even got to see the late great "abe lincoln" lol..he was outside our parking garage signing autographs,,so weird
Late Night: We came home, put Kruise to bed, and cuddled while Keith drifted off to watching Sex and the City:The Movie..I'll have to give him his last "present" at some point today,,we were too exhausted last night! lol! we sound so old! :)
Early Morning:Keith finally got a piece of his birthday cake,,we completely forgot about it yesterday! I asked him what his favorite animal at the moment was,and he said a turtle,so he got a turtle birthday cake,and I have to say,it came out pretty cute for something I made on the fly!
All in all,it was simple,but fun.and I hope Keify had fun on his last 20-something birthday!
Now,Next year,that will be a different story!!! ill post pics soon!

OMG! He's just so darn cute!!

Today, Kruise has learned something new,and I have to say,It is PRECIOUS! I had brought some of his stuffed animals downstairs to wash,and put them in the floor by the washer and dryer..Kruise walks over and picks out his elmo and gives him a kiss on the mouth and a BIG hug then carried him all over the house nestled up to his face calling him "babyyy",,,it was the CUTEST sweetest thing ever! It's times like that , that let you know you're doing something right! He also learned how to open the drawers in the hutch, put one of my flip-flops in each drawer, then shut them in it and laugh histerically..I will never have two shoes that match ever again!!

Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming...

ughhhh,,i can tell it's going to be ANOTHER one of "those" days...I woke up with a horrible headache, Kruise threw his entire breakfast in the floor and thought it was hilarious, I decided to get out of the house and then remembered Keith is driving my car,and then get the news that scum of the earth collections agencies have been harrassing my family,like I'm not embarrassed enough..,I wish hubby could come home and spend time with me,maybe I wouldn't be so down today,but you've gotta work! He would probably just get aggrivated with me for being sad and not just "getting happy". I'm tired of being this person..I've never been unhappy,mopey,or depressed,,and now I am officially Debby Downer..I feel like there's a storm cloud constantly above my will get better,it has too! Snap Out of It!!! I'm going to play with Kruise,,,he always makes me feel better,no matter what!

It's kinda deep in here,,you might want to get your rain boots on...

I am soooo sick of the way things are right now,,I have had it! I'm sick of having too many people crammed in one home,no one was meant to live this way! Families were NOT meant to share a household,I dont care what you say! Although it is only my mom, along with me,keith,kruise,and soon to be noah,it's still just SUFFOCATING me! I'm done with cleaning up constantly after 3 ADULTS , in addition to cleaning up after and taking care of my son. I'm sick of not having my own space, my furniture, my lawn and flowers,even my own holiday decorations,I still miss my home so much it hurts,even though it's been a year,,It hurts me that Kruise only got to spend 6 weeks in the nursery I worked on for months just for him to grow up in,,I'm tired of "people" slamming the door below our room, and Kruise's room, EVERY single morning and EVERY single night, no matter how many times I bring it up and waking us and our sleeping baby up,,I'm tired of "people" opening the loud ass garage door every morning at 6:30,that echoes through the whole house, just to walk through it to their car,that's parked outside,instead of using the front door! I hate that Noah doesn't have a special place to come home to,no room of his own,no nursery that I worked on tirelessly and put so much love into,just a bassinet,,a temporary place, just like us,,I hate that I have nowhere to put all his sweet little baby things, like with Kruise,instead i can only get necessity's so there's no clutter for the house to sell,,I feel like Noah is already not getting what he deserves,,already "less" than Kruise,this breaks me...I'm sick of seeing my beautiful things and comfy bed and furniture sitting all over the place in a dirty storage facility.I miss my porch swing and walking barefoot around my yard, imagining Kruise running and playing in our beatiful yard.,I tears me up to know these will be Kruise and Noah's memories,not in our family home full of love and our own traditions,, I'm mad I can't even do laundry when I want. I'm over being sad and crying without cause way too often. I hate that I'm so angry, when I know things could be alot worse, if we had no one to help us. I'm sick of things not ever getting better. I'm tired of being sick and tired, feeling desperate and poor,of having to rely on someone else for things as simple as shampoo..when will this misery end? How the hell did we get here, and how,if ever, will we climb back out of this black hole!? I see no end in the near future and it scares the hell out of me,,where is the light at the end of this tunnel? Lord help us! It' so hard to be positive in a time like this, and I can only fake it for so long,,,it felt good to let that out,,,thanks for opening the floodgates M :)

Lake Fest

So today me and Kruise decided we didn't want to spend ANOTHER saturday hanging around the house, waiting for Keith to want to do something fun,so we had a mommy and baby day! Today was the last day of the consignment sale,and alot of things were 50% off,so we went to see if we could find him some books,toys,or whatever..we ended up getting three books that he loves for like $5, which is a killer deal if you have been children's book shopping lately! He's already "accidentally" destroyed two $20 books,and that was getting old quick! On the way to the consignment sale, I saw that H'ville was having it's annual lake fest, which I completely forgot about,and decided we would hit that on the way back,,,Initially, I was irritated, we had to park a couple miles away and walk in the 100 million percent humidity with the stupid umbrella stroller that i HATE because the handles are too short and it kills my back,then we get to where you pay to go in,and they charged me for Kruise! I was like "are you serious!? he's 14 months!" The guy said i did so whatever,i pay it,and go on my way..we did end up having fun though! We looked at all the boths and cool little things they had for sale, and I ended up buying Kruise a little glass turtle that a guy made in front of me,it was pretty neat,and got Noah an elephant,for a $1 apiece,I'm usually not into stuff like that, but they are adorable little clear ones that I can put away for them..we watched an Elvis impersonator perform, watched people canoe and ride jet-skiis on the lake, hung out with some ducks,ran around in the grass,played on the playground,got some free goodies from vendors (cloth shopping bags and stuff), I registered to vote and talked to some hilarious little jewish ladies, Kruise got to meet the horses the police ride around on and see a firetruck,and I got hit on by a fireman (woohoo,momma's still got it! lol) We probably would of stayed alot longer,but after 3 hours, we were getting pretty hot,thirsty,and Kruise was ready for a nap! So,we came back home and he passed out,,,I think that sounds like a good idea,actually,I'm off for a nap!

Rich Biotches!

Today I watched the "sneak peek" or the Real Housewives of Atlanta,,those hoochies make me sick, but I'm sure I will still tune in every week,it's a sick addiction of mine,reality tv that is,,i think it makes up for my lack of a social life nowadays..I can't believe how unbelievably nieve these old women are! They married rich men and think that makes them "successful" women that worked hard for what they have..The one that irritated me to the point of posting a whole blog about a stupid show, was married to some NBA player, had just got finished building a 15,000 sq ft house,or something similiarly ridiculous, and was complaining about the challenges of being a "single" stay-at-home mom,because hubby traveled 6 days a week,only,during basketball season..what topped it off, is the woman had a "house manager", maids,a
nanny,governess,chef,etc. but, still had it so rough! What the heck does she do all day!? It's DEFINITELY not raising her children! UGH gag, make me sick! maybe someday I'll have to delete this blog when i become insanely wealthy and a complete snob..i can only hope! Hope I don't sound too bitter! ha!

Babies do the CUTEST things..especially MINE! :)

Kruise was just so darn cute today, so I thought I would share a day in the life of my little man,,he is a one man comedy routine,,

So, I wake up this morning to him yelling "MAAAA MAAAA!" , I get out of bed and go in his room, met by the horible smell of baby poo and a big cheesy grin,, I asked him "Did you poop?" he laughs and said "I POOP!""POOP POOP POOP!" and continues to yell "POOP" the entire time I was changing him,, that will go over well in public :)

I bring him downstairs and put him in the living room to play, and ask him "Are you hungry?" He says "Hungry! Mmmmm!" and starts gnawing on his fingers,,since he was little bitty, everytime we give him a bite of something we say Mmmm, and he'll repeat it,so now when he's hungry he says "Mmmmm",,it amazes me how he already knows what these things mean and he's starting to link things to each other!
I make him scrambled eggs and cut up some grapes,,he eats all the grapes,of course, first and then some of the eggs before he decides to start tossing them as far as he can across the room while saying "no no no" and shaking his head and laughing,then procedes to "wash" his hair with scrambled eggs,little booger, its so hard to keep a serious face with him when he's so funny,,,

I lay him down for his nap, and he dozes right off,,,about an hour later ( he usually sleeps for 3) I look on the video moniter to see him staring in the screen and pointing at it,,next thing you know he's throwing toys at it and knocks it off the changing table with a bear..he doesn't like to be spied on;)
I get him out of bed and let him play in his room, of course the first thing he does is go and try and shut the door, i ran toward him like slow motion to try to stop him from smashing his fingers,but, it was too late...I picked him up and hugged him and kissed his fingers while he cried and screamed "bad!""NO NO NO" , he has never said bad! before so it made me giggle because he was yelling at the door, which made him giggle and we both giggled about nothing for a good ten minutes,,,poor thing has my ability to make anything funny,,,

Then we came back downstairs and he played while I was sitting on the couch,,he comes over to me, lifts my shirt over my belly and starts smacking it and saying "belby!" (i think its his combo of belly and baby), then runs off, pulling his shirt up over his face.
We went to eat at CiCi's when keith got home and Kruise did his infamous "man roar" all through dinner and decided blowing raspberries with a mouth full of food is the best thing ever...that was a blast
Now little man is passed out, storing up energy for the new adventures to come tomorrow,,wish us luck!

What about a Consignment Sale?

I am officially about to go to my very first consignment sale,,My friend called and told me that some rockin' deals on double strollers,and anything I can do to save $300 is good with me! I have to admit,I'm not uber excited to go...I imagine a place like goodwill,only worse,,people's junk thrown everywhere in some dark room, and the smell of mothballs in the air..hopefully it will exceed my expectations! Wish me luck in my money saving endeavor!

Aye Carumba! I LOVE consignment sales!

As you might have already figured, but I indeed enjoyed the consignment sale! I got SOO many good deals,, I got a brand new Graco double stroller- $60! , A video baby moniter with night vision and all that-$40 , A medela pump-in-style advance in the shoulder bag with all the extra goodies included!-$70! , A JJ Cole Bundle-Me Original- $15! An elmo chair for Kruise, that he is COMPLETELY in love with and laughs everytime he sits in it(precious)- $12! and a baby elmo dvd,that is too cute for words and teaches babies all kinds off stuff (think baby einstein)-$2! I'm still kinda weird about the clothes, I have a thing about the way used ones "feel", but I was still highly impressed with my findings! All in all, i give it 2 thumbs up! Now if they only had these things more than twice a year,,,,bummer....

So,Here I am,,at 2:23 AM

I have officially been sucked into the world of blogging, which may be a very good thing,as I tend to have ALOT on my mind! Here it is,almost 2:30 in the morning, and I'm hanging out on the couch with the laptop on my preggo belly,watching Southpark..I miss the days of deep sleep,although my little man has been great about sleeping in until at least 9:30! I think he knows I'm in desperate need of sleep when I finally pass out,, I think I have pregnancy-induced insomnia,quite possibly, I did just make that up,but surely it exists,,I peek in on Keith and see him snoring away,must be nice,,,i would like to go pour water on him so he can be awake and suffer with horrible is that!? well, i guess it's time for my third relaxing bubble bath of the night..just maybe it will work this time!
