Happy Halloween!

He was so excited about his costume he wouldn't stop jumping up and down. So a fuzzy picture it is! Wishing you a safe and fun-filled Halloween!

That's what the doctor called my ovum.

Seriously though?

Of all the things I needed a blighted ovum was not it.

I can't even believe that I am addressing this issue again. Miscarriage.

I'm not even sure I have the words to write or the thoughts to express. It's all just a numbing feeling that won't go away, always in the back of my mind. Another due date come and gone. Another round of the "I'm so sorry"ies. I wish it would all just go away.

There are still days that I think about what my life...

Do you know what I like to do? I like to give away things for no reason at all, just because I feel like it!  I don’t need a blogiversary, holiday, birthday, or even 1000 social media followers to celebrate!  My readers , yeah YOU, are reason enough to make me want to celebrate and give something special away!  Sort of a “thank you” for all the times you’ve read my posts, left comments, shared my content, provided me with blogger opportunities, supported my ideas, sponsored me, contributed to my website, but, most importantly, were there when I needed a friend!
With that said, a group of us decided to contribute some of our hard earned money to fund this monthly giveaway so we could present the eGIFTCARD by American Express to all of you today!

His Lion Mane

"Oh, she's so pretty!"

"What a beautiful little girl!"

"Your daughter is adorable!"

Are you kidding me people?! He's not a girl!

Honestly though, it must be a regional thing. Nearly 90% of people we run into who comment on my son's looks refer to him as a girl. This baffles me because a) I don't think he has the features of a girl nor b) do I think we dress him like a girl. 

Regardless of gender, I never intended to cut my child(ren)'s hair prior to their first birthday. Now that is a cultural thing. There are two different versions of an old wives tale that states you shouldn't cut your child's hair prior to either a) the first birthday or b) s/he being able to speak. Now "speaking" has never been clearly defined for me so I guess that could be anything from cooing to full on sentences. Whatever the case- I knew I would be waiting at least until the first birthday.

It's Friday Y'all! (and I got 5 on it)

TGIF!!!! You all may have had a short week due to the Columbus day holiday- but I didn't. I carried my butt to work. At least I do earn a vacation day for showing up when the rest of the world (or a good portion of it) was off.

1. Hubby and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary last week. Thanks for all the love on FB and IG. Earlier this year when I was thinking about the upcoming wedding anniversary it kind of threw me by surprise that we've been married for 5 years. 5 years seems like a long time in theory but in practice- it's not!

2. I am desperately trying to refrain from entering this contest.

Meaning of Marriage

How fitting is it that Becky chose this topic only day's after our 5th wedding anniversary?! So, I thought. Once again I'm a week behind but whatevs. I'm posting it anyway. Now about that meaning of marriage. I sure enough don't know all the answers but I've learned a lot in the past 5 years. So without further ado- I'm linking up with Becky once again for her 52 weeks of blogging with a purpose.

In honor of this 5th year milestone I have 5 things about what marriage means to me.

My 2nd year favorites!

I know every mom has their personal faves about what works and what doesn't work for them- so I decided to share a few of my own! This isn't a comprehensive lists but these are my absolute faves that I'd thought I would pass along.

Little Quack counts. My son loves this book!

Mind Right Monday: October

So yea, I haven't done this for 5 months... since April! And Dani has completely abandoned me too. But I'm back- at least for the 3 remaining months of 2013. Did I just say there were only 3 months of 2013 left?!

Goals for this month:

Pumpkin Patch fun

At the start of fall I knew I wanted us to take a trip to a pumpkin patch. I thought the idea of making pumpkin treats from fresh pumpkin sounded like a good idea and what's not to love about a pumpkin patch?!

Although I wanted to go- I thought for sure I would have planned this out more. You know- go to a touristy farm, have some cider, do... 'pumpkin'y things... if that makes sense. But instead we pulled off on the side of the road onto a pumpkin patch farm. Aaaaand....
