Me My Babies Week in the Life Of

Week in the Life Of….

Well another week has come to a close, and I must say it was rather uneventful. Productive you ask? Nope, I wouldn’t go that far but I did manage to get the laundry caught up…can I get a Woot Woot for that.

Last weekend, I went shopping for a few items for spring and did manage to find a few things that met all of my criteria: 1.) Must be on sale 2.) Must be “mommy” fly and 3.)  must be cheap

Lil Man was out of school Monday and Tuesday. Yes, he talked us silly. Bless his heart he has so much to say. I love him! I took them to the park everyday since the weather here has been holding steady in the 70’s and let him run himself tired…because remember when his eyes shut so does his mouth.

Addison slept well this week, but for some reason or another I am still on her waking every 3 hour schedule. Not.a.good.look. I am setting a bedtime for myself next week. blogging, no tweeting, no reading only sleeping. I’ll let you know how that goes.

Part of the reason I wasn’t sleeping is because I was reading a book. Not on the iPad but an actual book. Couldn’t put it down, each page was begging to be turned and I obliged from 12a to 4a two nights last week. It was for a good cause, the book was excellent. The name of it was Little Bee by Chris Cleave. My goal is to read at least 1 book a month so I was hardpressed to get it in before the end of the month but it was an easy read. So I am pushing my luck to finish another before next week. I am now reading, Jump at the Sun by Kim McLarin. I vow to read this book and adhere to my new bedtime stated before I’ll let you know how that goes. I’ve even added a little widget to your left that will keep you in the know on what I’m reading.

Speaking of reading, remember when I went on and on about how much I loved magazines and I traded in my frequent flier miles for magazine subscriptions? Well this week a whopping 4 glossy mags found their way into my mailbox. Sad thing is I haven’t read the other ten that came in December and January.  I’mma get to them…juuuuuuust like I’mma get around to mopping that kitchen floor…one day.

Please note the 3 Cosmo's and 2 Marie Claires on the iPad *SMH*

Wait for it…Wait for it. Go Shorty it’s My Birfday..not today but on next Wednesday. On 3/2 I will be 32. I’m comfortable in my 30’s now, I just didn’t realize that my birthday was around the corner until everyone kept asking me what my plans were. I don’t know what I will be doing  but I do know it will involve drinking and a short dress #dontjudgeme. Okay, I am exagerating, more like a glass of wine since I am still a nursing mama, but hold me to my word on that dress. Now, do I celebrate this weekend or next, or both. Don’t worry you’ll get all of the deets and non incriminating photos!

How was your week? Any big plans for the weekend?

    I say celebrate this weekend and next weekend. Gotta have fun and live it up every now and then. My week was pretty good. I won some amazing prizes at two Twitter parties and a $25 gift card from one of my blogging networks. The hubby had a lovely 7 days off back to back. Sadly he goes back to work today and is throwing on the uniform as I type this. It’s been great not having to handle Moo all day by myself and having someone else take over the cooking or to run to the store and pick up some craving foods. LOL. Nothing much planned for the weekend except to work on March for Charity stuff. Got to get some sponsors lined up for the Twitter party and finalize the button & logo.

    Yay! Happy Birthday! That’s exciting! I didn’t do much this week because I was sick :(. I hope to be better by next week and, thus, more productive. We’ll see.

    p.s. thanks for the wonderful fashion suggestions that you left on my blog! I REALLY needed them! You’ve inspired me to believe that I can and will get my act together a.s.a.p!
