It's The Random Things...

It's the Random things in the life that often times make you smile or laugh or roll your eyes. Growing up as a kid my dad use to spout off all these random facts about things. Actually I'm pretty sure that he still does. It's like he just knows all these random weird things about well everything. I swear it's both hilarious and eye rolling worth. That's why when my husband decided to look up what the french words on our clock mean I got a good laugh out of all of it.


You'll probably get a good laugh out of this too or wonder why on earth someone put this saying on a clock but Jardin du Monceau means at least from what we could find it means...
Garden Heap.
Well when I did a bit more investigating thinking that this was a rather odd thing to put on a clock I came across some pictures of a park in France. So, it may actually be a park and there were other pictures of clocks with this same phrase in them so it may also be a clock company. Interesting isn't it the random things you may have around your house that mean something. These are pretty fun shabby chic clocks. Ours I bought from the hubs Aunt M. She's awesome at finding really cool clocks and other vintage type decor. Seriously we had been looking for so long and when she said she was having a garage sale and probably selling this awesome clock I couldn't pass it up. So, whether it's a clock company, a park, or a garden heap it's still an awesome looking piece of decor. Have a great day and go share something random with the world. I'm sure it will make someone else smile.

Finish This #16

Hello Ladies it's Wed!!!!! Yeah I'm almost half way through this week and it feels fantastic! Anyway I'm hooking up with the wonderful hosts of Finish This again today. Sorry for my absence last week. But I think you'll like this weeks questions and answers. So, remember you can play along by visiting Three31 or any of the other awesome ladies who are co-hosts.

My favorite makeup item is ..
You better believe that this is my all time favorite eye shadow ever. It's very versatile and I love it. Now it's a bit on the spendie side but the hubs loves me and got this for me when he got a bonus. Don't I have the best man ever. Of course your still going to find me on some days sans make up and still wearing my pajamas. But this helps! Here are a few different looks I've done with this palette. 

The best book I’ve ever read was ____ because …
Oh people you should not do this to me. I love to read and read a variety of things so there is no way that I can whittle it down to a favorite all time book. I do have lots of favorite authors and such but sorry no best book ever for ya.
My favorite TV show is …
Castle! Love that show but I also have a slight crime and police drama obsession so I really like The Black List, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds and to top it all of a little Sleepy Hollow. I know I'm strange and trust me I don't watch these shows regularly we don't have cable so I just watch them once in awhile.

The most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done is …
hmmm... y'all I might have to get back to ya on that one. I'm seriously drawing a blank. I don't really do spontaneous I am more of a planner and then things usually fall apart and it stresses me out. I really should learn to be more spontaneous or just start with plan Z ! 
  I prefer DOGS/CATS because …
We are dog people at our house. Sorry we had cats growing up and that was enough of that for me. This is our Maverick when he was a puppy now he's a huge monster size dog. Littleman likes to use him as a pillow.


I met my significant other …
In college and trust me I'm lucky he didn't give up easily because the first time I met him I walked out of the room. I'm really pretty sure I was going to do my homework but him and his friend where serenading my roommates and I. He says I was the only one in the room but I don't remember that. So, yep I was a total jerk to my hubs the first time I met him. Good thing a year later he didn't give up on that girl with the brown hair and blue eyes. He even told his brother about me. 

Y'all have a wonderful day!

8 Is Great

Last week we celebrated this cuties

8 birthday. I can't believe that he is already eight years old. My how the time flies. I swear he use to be this little.

He's my crazy, rambunctious, loving eight year old now. Wow it's so hard to believe that he's that old. I swear he use to just be two and love to cuddle with his mom. Usually I throw some kind of funny party for the kids and then I get to share it with y'all however this month has been insanely busy so this cutie just decided to go to a movie with a friend and his cousin and brother. Yep I took 5 kids to see a movie. Thank heavens for my sisters willingness to come with us. Have a wonderful day y'all. Good thing my next kids birthday isn't till the end of August I'm not sure I can take feeling this old much longer. Happy Birthday Shortman!

Scrappin Monday

Morning y'all! I don't know about where you are but it's really over cast today. I'm loving it because it's not too cold or anything just a rather grey day and sometimes I like a good over cast day. Plus we could use some more rain. Anyway how are things for y'all. I'm sorry about the last couple of weeks they have been insanely busy around these parts and I've been having some pain in my wrist so I've been trying to use the computer less and just rest it. I am happy to say that I am almost done with my kids 2013 scrap books. It's hard to believe that I'm finally going to be on 2014 wow it's amazing. That's probably why I have so much wrist pain. :) Actually it's probably a lot of things. Our littleman just had teeth work done on Friday and had to have anesthesia. Which was really nerve wracking but he's been a champ and the dentist and anesthesiologist where awesome as well as the staff. It went great and he has only complained of pain once. Yeah for a strong little guy. Well I hope that you enjoy this weeks Scrappin Monday and have a fabulous week y'all. Thanks as always for joining me on this journey.

Finish This Week #14

On Saturday morning, I usually
I usually if lucky get to sleep in one hour longer then normal. Due to my one year old deciding to give mom a brief brake from waking up early. It's also usually the only day I get to do any kind of shopping with out dragging around kids.

I feel beautiful when
wow that's not a loaded question is it. I feel beautiful well the hubs makes me feel beautiful everyday but I feel beautiful well dang I don't have a good answer for that one. 

I wake up every morning
At 6 to get the kids up and going for school. I pack lunches, make sure the kids grab a bowl of cereal, and get them out the door. All while dealing with a couple of toddlers and a baby if they don't sleep in.

A happy home
Is run with love. 

When I have down time, I
Oh seriously if y'all follow my blog even just a little you know I scrap book and read. Heck I do that even when I don't have much down time. I try to get a little in every now and then it's my stress relief. Reading and scrap booking that's what I love to do in my down time.

Littleman Takes Over

Mommy's readers! It's me Littleman here to share some of my thoughts with y'all today. It's been awhile y'all! I've been enjoying life. My cousin Little Miss G has been hanging out with me during the week now. It's weird having a little girl around all the time. She's always playing with baby dolls, stuffed animals, and watching Tinkerbell. I'm pretty sure that fairy would be on mommies naughty list if she lived at our house. She get's angry a lot. Good thing I've converted Little Miss G to watching some batman and ninjago with me once in awhile because watching Tinkerbell 5 days a week would drive any little boy crazy. I think it secretly might drive my mommy up the wall too. She's not really use to watching those girly movies. I do like to watch Frozen though! Shhhh don't tell the other little boys on the play ground. :)

It's kind of fun now that Gbug can play with me. Although he still screams when I try to roll over the top of him. Then mommy yells that I need to be soft. Come on his a little boy like me isn't he suppose to be tough or something like that. Mommy says he's too little for me to roll over. When the heck is this kid every going to be big enough to wrestle. I've found this fun new game on mommies ipad called Tiny Thief. I'm a tad bit obsessed. Mommy plays it with me sometimes! 

Can I just complain about mommy for a minute here... She won't let me run around in my diaper all the time and she keeps trying to get me to use the potty and wear underwear and keep my clothes on. She's always getting me dressed and telling me I don't get to play on the ipad or have a cookie if I can't keep my clothes on like a big boy. Seriously people it's so much more fun to run around in a diaper. She doesn't think so but she's not three! Potty training doesn't really sound fun to me either. It drives mommy nuts. I'm pretty sure that she's given up lately though as she hasn't mentioned the bathroom in awhile or wearing my super hero undies. They are pretty cool though. 

Well y'all I'm off to watch Tinkerbell I'm sure since Little Miss G keeps asking and maybe if I'm lucky we can talk about watching batman soon. Have a great Friday. 

 Oh I swear this kid is always getting into trouble! Taking of my blog seriously Littleman! Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend and he's right I've given up on potty training for the time being. It's for the birds when it comes to Littleman. Have a wonderful day.
