7 month roundup

I can't believe it's been 7 months since my last post! What can I say? Life has been busy and wonderful around here. I hope I can get back in the groove of writing again, I really do love blogging, and miss posting...

So, whats been happening with us the last 7 months?

Well, the girls are still in school and loving every second of it. We had a great Thanksgiving, and an awesome Christmas, Santa even brought the girls a trampoline for the back yard ( what)!!?? 

My husband turned 30 this February and yours truly pulled off an actual surprise party for him (excuse me while I brush my shoulders off) I ran my first race! A 10k with a finishing time of 67 minutes and 41 sec. (whoop)! 

and as of May 4, 2013 we officially have a 4 year old in the house! 


As in, almost five.

I can't even believe it. 

The twins are 2.5 years old and doing great, talking more, playing with each other more, and they are even out of their cribs and in toddler beds now (sniffle) the time really does fly!

This past weekend we had a great, laid-back Mother's Day, full of running around at the park, playing on playgrounds, riding bikes/trikes and sweet frog (yum).

I'll leave you with some pics from our day :)

Sandy you are such a B****

Hope everyone is safe up north! The pictures and videos being shown on the news are just plain scary!

I'm so thankful here in Richmond we got nothing but a 2 day rain storm with a little bit of wind.

Sorry for the short post but just wanted to let everyone know we are okay.

P.S. being stuck inside, the twins have decided they want nothing to do with diapers, and have been using the potty, with not accidents (I'm still in minor shock).

More posts to come, hope everyone is/stays safe!

We've been getting used to new school routines and settling down for the fall weather that has suddenly swept into our town.

I may or may not have already gotten my halloween deco set up..

I had to share our classic "first day" pics with you all, and I haven't forgotten about doing the Twin's Bday post, I have a tease for you at the end...



They were so excited :)

Juliette, Says

I had to do another post on the great/cute little phrases from my 3 year old! 

Are you mad to me? (Are you mad at me)

What does it do's (for, what does it do)?

goof bug (for, goofball)

crunchy cough (this was when she had pneumonia, and had a really mucousy cough, she called it crunchy..which is a pretty smart way for a 3 year old to describe her cough)

Her new cutest phrase is when she asks where her daddy as, I say "he's at work" and she say's "He'll be home in a little bit of a second"

We survived North Carolina!

We survived our road trip, and I have to say, the kids did much better than I was anticipating.

It was so much fun to celebrate their cousin's birthday, and they had a blast sleeping the night in a hotel room!

Remember when you were a kid, how much fun hotels were??? Well the girls loved it!

We made it home safe, and thankfully didn't hit traffic, we also survived our poolside cookout yesterday!


The twins turn 2 on Friday and are having their party on Saturday!

I can't wait to post pictures, their theme is bookworms :)

I have to give myself a little shout out on this one, because the twinners are so anit-TV it's not even funny. So, they aren't "in" to any characters that most kids are like mickey or curious george. 

But, they LOVE books! So bookworm theme was born!

We also have open house on Friday to meet their teachers, and I am way excited about that as well :)

Busy week! I'll keep the posts comin!

Convention, Convention, Convention!!

If you're a political nut like me, then you're glued to coverage of the RNC convention! I love this stuff, politics is dirty, and scandalous and most of the time, completely unfair; but I love the political process, so I geek out over things like conventions, debates, elections and supreme court decisions!

I've been battling a nasty head cold lately that couldn't come at a worse time! We are heading down to North Carolina this weekend for my niece's birthday, then next week we have the beginning of dance class, open house at the kids' new school, AND the twins' birthday!!!

I'm trying to get my act together, because I just don't have time to be sick :(

The netti-pot has become my new best friend, and I've bought all the alka-seltzer at our local CVS. I can't say ENOUGH about the advanced strength Bayer, because it is literally the only thing  keeping my pulsating headache from exploding my head!

Please send healthy vibes my way, people!

I need them!
