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!

It's been too long...and I'm so sorry for that!
We've gotten knee-deep into summer around here with playdates, playgrounds, pools, and crafts :)

The hubs and I headed out for the west coast a few weeks ago, and of course parent's can't enjoy a kid-free getaway without one kid getting pneumonia and another getting pink-eye!

Oh parenthood.

But we were determined to not feel guilty, we were going to enjoy our vacay!

We took in all San Fran had...we were total tourists, walking the streets with our unfolded maps, taking the ferry to alcatraz, checking the golden gate bridge, sausalito and of course the red woods :)

It was 5 jam-packed days, but it was so much fun! A little awkward finding our groove in the beginning since me and the hubs are so used to it just being us PLUS 3 kids! We found our groove though, and really enjoyed spending time with eachother
We didn't realize how much we actually needed some "us" time until we were there!

Special thanks to my mom for watching the girls during our getaway :)

Now we're gearing up for a family trip to North Carolina to celebrate our nieces birthday and then it's back home to celebrate the twins turning 2! 


crazy! Then the girls will be off to a new morning program we just signed them up for!!!

Lots of fun stuff coming up and  I'm ready! I'm also ready for fall and pumpkins, and baking, and did I mention Christmas???

Yep, I'm ready for Christmas :)
