Maybe Bringing SIIS back...

I am really disappointed in myself,  I've gained some weight back.  I really hated seeing that on the scale.  When I was staying at 182.2lbs I was okay because I still was stuck at 20lbs lost. But I'm not there anymore, I gained 5lbs and I am so not happy with that! I need to get back to Sucking It In Saturday (SIIS) but I just don't have the energy to exercise right now. So I am going to start by watching what I eat again.  Thats a start right? I know that is my biig problem and why I have been gaining the weight back I haven't been watching what I am eating and I have been shoveling in the food lately.  I am always hungry, maybe thats because I am just not active and need to get myself more active. All I know is I need to do something, I can't continue to eat the way I have been eating and laze around like I have been.  Somethings gotta give, I guess it will have to be me.

So Welcome back to Sucking It In Saturday!

They made designer What?

Okay Possibly TMI alert,  I'm not going to go into full detail about  periods and all that they entail but we are going to talk about a new product, well not new product a some what improved product I guess you can say.  I'm sure you have seen the commercials for U by Kotex.  If you haven't well then you don't watch enough television (how dare you! haha) 
Well if you have seen the commercials or have actually bought the product then you already know that the packaging is colorful.  I like that their tampons are compact. 
Okay have you seen the product in the store lately?  If you answered No well then let me share with you... They now have designer pads and tampons! 

This is were it gets kinda weird for me.  Why in the world do we need designer decorative pads? Seriously I want to know this?  I don't want to get to disqusting here but really I just don't get the concept of having a pad look all pretty when you are about to bleed all over it!! Who are you going to share it with?  "Oh look how pretty my pad is!" (I think not!)
That's not to say that I didn't just buy any recently on our outing at Target but that is because they were on clearance and I can't pass up clearance items (especially when they will get used eventually).  But my clearance problems can be discussed later in another post.

What do you think about the new pretty decorative pads and tampons?

Almost ready to say goodbye....

I think I have pretty much gotten my WordPress blog ready to go ( I think...).   But I am just not sure when I should make the switch.  I'm mean this is happening all so suddenly, change is happening so quickly and I guess I am just a little afraid to leave my Blogger home here.  I guess you can say I'm scared.  Will I like it over at WordPress or will I come to realize that I made a mistake and want to come back to Blogger?  Will I find WordPress just to complicated and want to come crawling back to my easier Blogger home?

I guess I am afraid to somewhat start all over...  I hope you all will continue to follow my blog.

I think I will be making the big Move on August 1st. 
I will post a link to the New blog of course so that ya'll wont have to search for me but yeah I think August 1st I will begin my WordPress advanture...

Body Art....

Well I did it I got my girlie's names tattooed on me .  Things didn't go exactly as previous planned so once they heal I will be trying to see if they can lighten them up a little bit so they are not so dark.  But other then that I am Happy with it.  It's not a bracelet like I had thought before.  I have 2 names on each wrist and a little heart with an S inside between each name. 

I'm glad I had it done although I really wish I would have thought things through a bit more because it caused a lot of conflict between me and the Hubby.  I know you don't often hear people say it but I screwed up!  I mess up, made assumptions, and didn't consider my Hubby's thoughts or feelings on the matter.  I feel horrible for it all and wish I could change the way things panned out but I can't take it back now.  This is honestly the worse thing I have ever done since me the Hubs have been married, I am definitely paying for it now.

Making a switch...

No offense Blogger I love you, Your were I got my blogging start but... Well you are irritating the hell out of me!  I have trouble commenting on my friends blogs, I write a long ass blog post and you don't save any of it and then I gotta rewrite the entire thing!!  I'm not the only one that has made the switch there have been many that have made the switch as well.  Jessica over at Pretty Lil Pieces is thinking about making the switch as well.  The only problem?  Wordpress is hard to figure out!  Holy confusion batman!

So for now I blog on both Blogger and Wordpress until I get things situated and were I wanna be.  (I'm sure I will post basically the same thing on both blogs for now).  But I am thinking I may be making the switch within the next week or so (so it won't be to confusing for to long).  So if I will give you the link to the new wordpress blog once I make the final switch.

Have an Oh So Wonderful Day!

Do I do it or not??

(bites lip) Did you know I'm a tattooed Mama?  No I'm not embarrassed about it but I am having a mental argument with myself right now....

I got my first tattoo when I was 18, my mom hated tattoo's and told me there was no way I could get one until I turned 18 (legal age to get one without parental consent).  Well I turned 18 saved up my money and got my damn tattoo!  That'll show her, who's boss right?  It was a tiger butterfly, a butterfly with the face of a tiger inside, but mine is a blue eyed tiger ;)   I love my tattoo always have, in fact to me depending on what type of tats you got to me they are art and your body the canvas.
Just 2 days later I got another tattoo, not the smartest decision I ever made, in fact one of the stupidest decisions I ever made!  I had gotten the initials of my (at the time) fiance, on my chest.  I know stupid, right? Well after my son passed away and we broke up I immediately covered up the tattoo with my sons name.  Its a cross with a rose and a banner with his name, even if I wasn't covering up a tattoo I still would have gotten it in the same spot over my heart because that is were he is (in my heart). 
Well the Hubby HATES tattoo's. We've had the discussion many times and his opinion has always been the same.  Actually when I got my tongue pierced it was because I had a craving for a tattoo and the hubby did not want me to get it, so I told him either a tat or my tongue.  Well duh, he hates tat's so guess what I got!
Well from the moment we started dating he knew I wanted to get our children's name's tattooed on me, that's just the way I am.  Well while searching pinterest I found a beautiful idea...

A white Tattoo

Ain't that so cute! I love it! So I have begun thinking I want to get our girls names tattooed on me.  I want a white tattoo on my wrist.  I'm not yet sure how I want it yet.  I was thinking a list of their names going down my wrist, but my mom was thinking it would be cute if I did it like a bracelet with hearts or stars separating their names.  Which I think that sounds nice.  The biggest problem that is accuring for me is that I REALLY want to get this tattoo but again like I said the Hubby doesn't want me to (although he says if I really want to he won't stop me but he would prefer me not to).  He'll make fun of me for getting it I know he will, he will tell me it looks stupid or whatever (jokingly of course) but do I get it and deal with the ridicule or don't get it and possibly regret not getting it? 

What do you think?  Of course by the time you read this maybe I'll have already gotten it? Maybe, Maybe not.... hehe
But I still want your opinions, what would you do in this situation?

So I know you heard me complaining and moening the other day how I needed more space for crafts and other such things like that?  Well I thought that I would share with you the things reasons why I want my own space for crafting and the so many things that I have found on pinterest that I want to do in my own home (once we get one).  Oh and there are a few other neat things as well.  If you haven't checked out pinterest yet, you should!  Just prewarning though... Its addicting.  Also I have linked up each picture to pinterest so that you can go to the actual source of each pictures to find out how to do wome of them.  ENJOY!!!

Okay first something a little boring. But are you getting tired of spending a bunch of money on egg dye just for it to barely dye your eggs?  I know I am and I have not tried this but I sure will next easter.  Kool-Aid to dye your eggs, Genius!   (ps I have also heard of people using it as temporary hair dye but I have never tried that either so be careful!)

 How cute is this for decoration in your home or over your bed?  A window picture frame!  I love it!

This for me kinda goes with the above picture,  I am loving this home made stuff lately, I could totally go for making my own bed! Maybe it won't exactly look like this but I could totally see doing this!

These are nice, I love that they are personalized for the kids!  My kids have savings account and a box for spending money.  But I love that they have would have specialty jars!  (I just have no place to put them right now)

Now this is awesome!  Not long ago we put a bid on a house and I started getting excited about possibly getting a new house so I started shopping for things to furnish the house, I couldn't believe how expensive patio furniture was.  But then I seen this and thought wow we could do this at our house and it would be so much cheaper!  

And of course we would need a table to go with our new patio couch so of course we would have to do this!

I thought this was a great thing for the kids!  Pillow mats... I was thinking last night about this and all the neat things I could add to this.  (like zippers or buttons on the side so you can attach a blanket to it)  Oh and did I forget to mention that these are made out of old pillow cases!!

 This kinda goes with the above picture, on pinterest this is basically just a applique tuterial.  But I thought it would be great to also personalize the above pillow mats. My mind is racing with all the possibilities!

 Now tell me you can't look at this and think OMG this is so cute!!  I am totally going to do this for Carly for halloween this year!! I have already tried to find the tights and shirt to go with the costume so if you know of any where I can get these things PLEASE tell me! 

So as you can see pinterest has a lot of neat things on there, its not just about projects there are also beautiful pictures of things and other such stuff! (again addicting)  I just want to try so many of these things!  And I can't wait till I can,  I'm acutally growing impatient of waiting ;)

Banning the Binky! Day 2

So the first whole day without the bink went resonably well.  She did ask for it first thing in the morning and a few other times during the day.  I went shopping with the oldest girlie, and when I got home she had a bink in her mouth!  I flipped out, took it from her and told her no more bink.  I asked were she got it but no one knew, How the heck did she get it?  The damn thing was on the window ceil in the kitchen above the sink!  She didn't like that I took it from her but she handled it pretty well I gotta say.  I was worried about how things would be come bed time.  The older two wanted to sleep in the basement and so did Kara but I told her no, I think she was more unhappy about that then not having her binky!  She wimpered for a second after I told her she couldn't have her binky.  She sat with her daddy on the couch to watch tv (futurama if you need to know).  Within minutes she was asleep, with no binky!

Night Number 2 was successful!  She didn't wake up once all night (she must have been exhausted!) and she has yet to ask for her binky today.  I hope tonight goes just as well.  I'm so proud of how wonderful she is doing my only problem I am having is if I tell her how proud I am of how well she is doing she may end up asking for her binky and I just want to keep her mind off of it.  So you see my problem here?

Banishing the Binky!

The first 10 minutes were fine, until her sisters began there bed time stalling tactics.. You know the usual " my belly hurts", " I have to pee", yeah that kind of stuff.  That's when it got bad, that's when the request for the binky began.  I defiantly knew that its was gonna be hard, especially with Kara and the attachment that she has to that stinking thing!  Well that and #1 & #2 were extremely attached to it.  But today I thought maybe it might be slightly different.  I bet your wondering why (how)? Well we were shopping at the grocery store today and Kara was sitting in the shopping cart with her binky in her mouth (while I was trying to push the cart and caring Carly).  A women that works at the grocery store walked up to us and began talking to Kara.  She told Kara that she was a big girl and didn't need her binky anymore.  She told Kara to take it out of her mouth (which she did) and then she told Kara to give it to me (which she did again).  She continued to "lecture" Kara for around 5 minutes about how she is a big girl and a big sister and she shouldn't have a binky any more and she should only have sippy cups.  As soon as she walked away, Kara immediately asked for her binky but I didn't give it to her, I put it in my purse and continued on shopping.  Eventually we made it to the baby isle, Kara seen some sippys and made a request for a knew one.  I told her that if I got her new sippy cups for her that she had to get rid of her binkies. 

When she first went to bed things seemed to be alright, she of course asked for her binky but I gave her, her new sippy cup filled with water and told her "remember you said no more binkys if I bought you the sippy cup", she wimpered but layed down.  I think the night would have gone much better if her older sisters weren't playing in the bed and keeping her from falling asleep.  Then she kept hurting herself (again probably because her sisters were playing instead of going to sleep.  By the 3rd time that Kara hurt herself the older 2 decided they were going to go into the top bunk to leave Kara alone.  Kara was out in less then 10 minutes!  We have very few meltdowns for the binky that night.  Not that we didnt have any because we did but thankfully they where few and they were minor. 

So I think I can say that night number 1 without the binky was a success!!
I just hope we have good luck with night number 2....
