In case you didn't notice... My blog has a totally new look!

Fresh, clean and more "grown up!"

I used a premade layout and tweaked it! You can find a link to the one I used at the bottom right of this page. I am still working out kinks in my mobile app so you may not even SEE my blog on your phone as of right now. At least the desktop version is so very purdy! <3

Life...

This year started off with a bang... LITERALLY!

Between trees being struck by lightning on new years and not having hot water for 2 weeks I'm not sure which one is worse! We have had A LOT going on in the first 3 weeks of this year and it seems like each time something is conquered another things pops up! That's life though, right?!?

I know I have mentioned the issues with my tooth that started giving me problems on my birthday...

On Thursday I was finally able to have it AND the infection removed.
It was actually quite painless and I was surprised at the painless removal. The aftercare and aftermath have been worse than the actual extraction... I'm on some pretty dang powerful pain killers that either put me to sleep or make me super sick! Now comes the task of rebuilding and hoping my liver and kidneys don't decide to wage war on my teeth again!

Yeah, check out my SWOLLEN as heck face! At least it was out!

Trump is now the president...

HOPEFULLY he brings the change he has promised. It hurts my heart to see people acting like they are but, I guess there will always be people that feel the need to act out because they didn't get their way! The kids really enjoyed getting to watch all of the festivities of him being sworn in and couldn't stop talking about how they had seen so much history in their short little lives!



Another reason I LOVE the beginning of the year? Well, I love this place all year but I LOVE after Christmas clearance at Target! I got all of this bedding for twins for under $35!!!!

They love it, I love it so we are all happy! Mady was especially excited to have "big girl bedding" because it all matched! Not that she hasn't had matching bedding before but this time every single thing on her bed matches she says!

I'm going to be painting soon, just have to choose colors and such. I'm also still working on their bed layout! I cant wait for it to all come together and let them take part in the remake of their common space... They are super excited!!!!



That's about it for now. I'm going to go back to watching Hell's Kitchen and sleeping off this pain medication from my surgery. :)

Happy new year yall!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic new year! Mine hasn't started off that well because of something going on but its not anything personal or medical... Just something crappy that happened and is being dealt with! (HOPEFULLY sooner rather than later)!

Yesterday morning we were supposed to wake up to a ton of snow! Let me tell you, the kids had an amazing time playing int he grass... Like they always do! You guessed it, we didn't get any snow! However, about 50 miles North of us got tons! At least someone got to have fun because the only fun I had was trying to melt the ice on my car so my doors would open. Come to think of it, that wasn't fun! lol

Last night I officially took Maddox out of his bunk bed. Its an IKEA Kura so all I had to do was flip it over and it became a normal twin bed with the ability to make a "tent" around it. I did and low and behold the stupid dog jumped on the top ripping the sheet we were suing for a tent. Never fails.

Im going to be buying another Kura though, the twins want to share rooms until they are 80 so we have to figure out a way to better utilize the space in that room. We are thinking something along the lines of this but with both beds flipped to the bunk side so they will have an area under the bed too. I dont know though, after REALLY looking at this configuration I really love how the dresser in the middle can double as a bedside table and provides extra room. We could ten take and put a board on top and make storage on top.



This idea falls somewhat in line with the above using the beds as bunks and leaving a space in the middle. 
























This is actually what the twins like... The L shape with storage under and a tent this would actually allow for 2 extra beds which is perfect for visitors.
















I am really leaning towards the first option though with them as bunks. Who knows, time will tell... Ill be sure to update with what I choose and the logistics of how we get it all done.
