I just put an old lady's maxi pad through the wash and all I can think is this is my life...

Closing Date

And now the waiting begins continues... Today is the closing date on our dream house. As soon as we hear from the Lawyer's Office or from our Realtor, we can officially call the place ours! What a long, hard battle it has been. So much paperwork and phone calls and running around. I'll be happy when I can just settle into my new closet craft area and relax. This is my life!

Three Months

My sweet Ellie Belly is now officially three months old. A quarter of a year flew by oh so quickly! She stands, laughs, babbles, giggles, smiles, pounds her fists on the table, drools up a storm, and recognizes Turkey Butt & I. She's pretty amazing - even if she does keep me up til 3am and get Turkey Butt up for the day at 7am. This is my life :)

Remember that time..

Hey, remember that time I left a pot of boiling water on the stove for an hour? You don't? Well I guess that's because it just happened. I claim that it was Little Miss Elle spitting up on me that caused me to forget the pot. That could be true. But honestly, I even forget what happened to cause me to forget the pot. I guess you could say that I'm forgetful.

Did you know that when the water all evaporates from the pot, the pot begins resembling the burner. Trust. Turkey Butt threw the pot out into our rain drenched yard and it landed bottom up. Let's just say the bottom of the pot was as red as Rudolph's nose (I love Xmas). Turkey Butt had to put on shoes and put the pot into a snow bank to cool it down. Hmm, I'm pretty sure that Turkey Butt will never let me within ten feet of the oven again... This is my life...

Pinterest Inspired Prints for Elle's Room

A little ode to Little Miss Elle's birthdate - October 18th.
Oh baby - Little Miss Elle's birth details.

Luckily there is a deal on online photo prints at Walmart right now! This is my life!

Burger Bonanza

This time around we tried Burger King. Turkey Butt didn't notice the salad options until after he had ordered so I'll leave that area out on this review. As for my burgers with just ketchup, they were delicious! And only $1.89 each - much more reasonable. These may just give McD's a run for their money... Will have to eat them together for the perfect comparison!

Let's score Burger King:

Burger - A

Fast Food Burgers

Let me confess something to you. I am addicted to McDonald's hamburgers. There. I said it. Because of this addiction, I thought that perhaps it would only be fair if I ate burgers from all the local fast food places to see if McD's burgers really are the best. Turkey Butt decided to join me and compare the "healthier" options from each place.

First up was A & W. I was a little disappointed by the burger selection - or lack thereof. I could order a Mama Burger for about $4. That seemed ridiculous to me for one measly burger with just ketchup on it. So I decided to get the Kid's Meal instead - $4.49+tax for a baby burger, mini pop and mini fries. The burger was small obviously, but it was good. The bun was far too big for the size of the burger, but it was alright. Certainly no McDonald's but it was alright. Turkey Butt decided to opt out of this review because the A & W outlet we went to didn't offer salads (his healthy meal of choice at McD's).

Let's score A & W:
Burger - B
Price - C-
Healthy Option - F
Overall Satisfaction - C

Next up we stopped at Harvey's. Again I was shocked by the price of a plain old burger. In this case it was $3.99+tax. I guess one thing it has going for it is you get to pick your ingredients from a Subway-esque tray in front of you. This didn't have much appeal for me as I only like ketchup on my burgers, but for someone else it'd be nice. Turkey Butt inquired about their salad offerings and was disappointed by their one and only option - a BLT salad. Instead he opted for a veggie burger. He wanted me to mention that he was offered a choice between a white bun or a whole wheat bun. This was only offered for the veggie burger but it was still nice to know it was an option. Turkey Butt would also like to mention what happened when he went into this particular Harvey's location: I guess he walks in and the entire staff is sitting at a table in the corner. He stands in the front at the counter for a\few minutes and no one got up to serve them. He (probably not so politely) asked them if they were all on a break or if someone might want to take his order. Eventually someone did but clearly slacked at their job. The fries were soggy with awful smelling, old cooking oil and my burger was still very pink on the inside. So pink that I couldn't even eat it for fear of getting food poisoning.

Let's score Harvey's:
Burger - F
Price - C-
Healthy Option - C
Overall Satisfaction - F

Until next time, this is my life.

Eleven Weeks Old

It's a brand new year and my baby girl is now 11 weeks old! My poor squishy face has been fighting a cold since Christmas. Lots of snot and teeny little sad coughs. Sigh. Luckily she enjoys cuddling with her Mama when she's not feeling well. But I hope she gets better soon - her sleep schedule has been out of whack and I need some sleep. Turkey Butt and I are so excited to move the little miss into our new home. She'll have a big bedroom all to herself and a massive wal-in closet that I plan to turn into a secret play area or book nook when she gets older. Anyway, this is my life :)

Dear Facebook Timeline...

Dear Facebook Timeline,

You are so annoyingly frustrating that I would rather be without Facebook than deal with you. Sure you offer us a super fun cover photo. I was really drawn in by that! You also let me decide what I thought was important and what could be hidden (though not deleted) from my timeline. Really, I think you had the right idea. What you probably didn't account for was the fact that everytime I scrolled so far down the screen it would shoot me back up to the top and I'd have to scroll through all over again. Sometimes I'd have to do it half a dozen times or more to hide one item from "Earlier 2011". Don't even get me started on organizing the years 2007 through 2009! After awhile I became super annoyed with my cover photo.

BUT you are no longer able to tell all of your 36 Facebook friends that your sweet hubby just made you delicious french toast for breakfast, you say. Sorry Facebook Timeline, but I can live with that! This is my life.
