In a slump...

I really need something exciting to happen around here so I have something to blog about.  I'm surprised anyone reads this thing for how boring I am.  Seriously.  I'm thankful that I have a great husband, awesome little girl, and everything is stable in our lives.  But seriously.  Mrs. Mommy needs some excitement!

You know what my excitement was for today?  I went shopping tonight and bought a new dress for a wedding we have this weekend.  Pathetic?  I think so!  I really like the dress though.  I came home and modeled it for Tyler.  I always need a little reassurance.  He isn't crazy about the neckline, but he's ok with it.  He got to stay home with Kyla and have some quality Daddy/Daughter time.

Remember when I told you guys that she's a Momma's girl?  Well that was nothing!  She needs her Momma at all times now.  I have to admit, it's pretty adorable.  But it's also exhausting at times.  And Momma needed to get out tonight.  The hour and a half I was gone was just what I needed!  And Kyla had fun with Daddy.  But was happy to see me come home :)

I forgot I told you that I'd post a picture of my new organizer from Michael's that I got on Black Friday.  I haven't put it together yet, but here it is...

I'm excited to use it Kyla gets a little older and we have lots of coloring books, papers, etc.  And 80% off is pretty sweet!

Unfortunately today was one of those days where Kyla would not cooperate for any cute pictures.  Not one!  Here's what I got...

We'll try again tomorrow :) 

And maybe I'll have something exciting to blog about.  Anyone have any ideas?  Any questions I can answer?  Anything you want to know?  Come on, ask away!  I need you!


  1. Mom has an organizer like that too! I could so use one for my classroom!

  2. I like that organizer!

    I can't remember...have you ever blogged about your previous job as a teacher? Since I was a former school psych I am always interested in hearing from teachers lol. What grade did you teach? Any parent horror stories to share? Favorite unit/subject/project to teach? Plans for going back?

    That's all I got ;-)


  3. Who doesn't love getting a new dress? Especially for a wedding ;)

    I just have to say that I really enjoy reading your blog. You are a talented writer and the pictures are adorable!!

    See you Saturday!

  4. I too really enjoy your blog, and trust me I get excited about even less. lol

  5. Amy, that is totally the drawer organizer I have had my eye on for months!!!!!! You will have to let me know what you think. I was just going to break down and buy two of them, but then I read a couple reviews that said something about the drawers, so please let me know what you think. Also, if you ever see a great coupon for Michael's like that again, please share so I can run off and get one! :)

  6. I have two of those organizers. Just to warn you, they are not heavy duty. I use mine for my scrap-crap.

    Nothing wrong with boring, sometimes excitement is a bad thing.I love the touchdown pic from the last post, I am too lazy to post twice.
