Bullet Point Updates


  • Wesley is still petrified of getting a haircut, and he refuses to let me comb his hair after a nap—hence, intense bed head.
  •  I’ve become addicted to Grey’s Anatomy since it was recently added to Netflix. Addicted, as in I literally have dreams about the characters and story lines. It’s not something I’m proud of. But oh, McDreamy. Also, I know I’m supposed to despise Addison, but she’s my favorite.
  • Have I mentioned that both of my boys got their Daddy’s dimples. Yeah, I pretty pumped about that. We’ll just pretend they didn’t get my large forehead too.
  • I cooked tonight. My first “real” cooked meal in oh-I-don’t-know-how-long. It even involved turning on the grill. Yay me.
  • I can’t get enough of all the awesomeness found here as of late. Who knew there were that many types of buns?
  • I’ve lost 27 pounds since giving birth—and I still have 15 to go before I’m at my pre-baby weight. Just to give you an idea of how gloriously huge I get when growing a baby.
  • This is some funny stuff.
  • When I lay in bed at night and can’t sleep, I get all sentimental and go back and read all of these.
  • Use the code FIVEOFF to get $5 off a medium ad space on my sidebar. Or use the code TENOFF to get $10 off a large ad. Click here for details.
  • I’m having the urge to paint something with chalkboard paint. Any suggestions?
  • My white couches have finally met their match with 3 year old Lil W.  Even bleach can’t overcome his grime. New slipcovers are in my near future, Ben just doesn’t know it yet.
  • Our little family has consumed 3 boxes of Lucky Charms in the last week.  And the moment I realized this, was pretty much when I decided it was time I start cooking again.
  • Lil W has decided he will be waking up at 5:00 a.m. every morning. Not cool Wes, not cool.
  • Need a good laugh? There’s a board for that. And you should follow it.

Thank you for listening. Your turn, 2 bullet points. Ready, go.

    I just got married a month ago, but my husband had to leave for 2 weeks for military things, so I’m the lonely newlywed.

    -I’m opening an etsy shop on Friday, hopefully! I’m super excited, but kinda scared too

    OOooh, I’ve been dying to use “re-stickable” chalkboard paper (available at Hobby Lobby) and line the inside of a pantry door with it. I plan to use it for a grocery list or the dinner menu for the week! Search for it on pintrest! Cute idea!

    We got our 2 year old the “ok to wake” alarm clock for his bday. Downer, right? HE LOVES IT. It turns green when it’s time to wake up. Life saver.

    My THIRD son will be here in roughly 10 weeks. I keep having freak out moments! The transition to 2 was *relatively* smooth for us, but NOW (after I was already pregnant) I read that even moms with 8 kids say that the transition to 3 was the hardest. FREAK out 🙂

    It stresses me out to have to weigh in at the Dr while I’m pregnant. I know it’s silly. I know it’s for a good purpose, but I’d rather be ignorantly blissful 🙂 (I’m 3 pounds away from what I was hoping to only gain, and I’m 10 weeks away from delivery…yeah…)

    1) Today is my birthday. I just found out my cat died, I got my second flat tire in 5 days, and my husband is out of state on a trip.

    2) On the upside, I will be allowing myself 2 (!) pieces of French Silk pie today- one for my birthday, and one for my misery (obviously).

    * in less than a month I will begin my first year as a 7th grade math teacher.. I’m really terrified

    * I just moved into a new apartment… all by myself… again due to the wonderful timing of the military. At least I know it’s not my husbands fault. And i get to choose how to decorate 🙂

    *Our savings is running out and so that means I will have to go back to work. I have LOVED being a stay at home mom and am very nervous to be out in the workforce again, not to mention the inevitable stress of getting everything done (dinner, clean house, homework, etc)
    *I want to start a blog but am afraid of the judgement from my family & friends. AND I can’t decide on a name.

    I simply adore the Today show and coffee on my couch! (and that my 1 and 3 year old are entertaining themselves so I can eat my English muffin and also read LMM).

    I am so excited the dog is almost out of dog food because it means I get to go to Target today. And clearly, that means I may need a new outfit or lipgloss, since I’m there.

    -Wesley is seriously adorable. Those photos just melt my heart. #2 is precious!
    -I’ve also been sentimental recently…like a sentimental mess. When I should be sleeping(because Lilly is actually sleeping longer..omg), I’m up reading blog entries and staring/bawling over her newborn photos -_-
    -I’ve seen the following chalkboard paint ideas: making labels for jars or containers in the kitchen cupboard, a to-do list or message board or chore list in the kitchen, and the other day I saw on a blog a lunchbox that somehow had a chalkboard in it (so you can write cute notes!…I loved the idea!) I wanted to do that for the hubby, but first have to figure out how to attach the board with chalkboard paint on it in his lunchbox. I may end up just dropping it in there with his sandwich 😉

    Happy Saturday, Ashley!
