Update....

                                                                 Update.......

Have you ever been so pregnant and can't seem to stay focused? That would be me. I can not seem to stay focused on anything right now, and I blame that on my lack of blogging in the last forever. Also I just can not focus on the other things I need to get done I start things and than go to other things and back to the thing I started before. I do not know if I get bored or if i just can not focus on one thing or another. I guess I'll find out soon enough. I do blame it on my pregnancy though at least this point in time .

I have so much to do while the rest of the time little miss LoreLei is gone and before this baby is born though. I can not believe how much slacking I've really done lately. I have to get LoreLei's room finished up, almost done though. I have gotten rid of 3 tubs of clothes, two large boxes, an extra pack in play that I think was uglier than sin, and a few trash bags full of random things in her room. I also scrubbed down her walls I want to do it one more time before she comes home though and get all the dust out of there. I also want to find her a cute toy box and not this big blue laundry basket thing we are using for a toy box, but we will see how that goes. I have taken a lot of stuff to the airmans attic and I will until we leave this base. I can not lie without the airmans attic  and the friends I have around here I doubt I would be this prepared for our little man. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

However, I have gotten the hospital and diaper bags packed for him as well and put in the car. I have the camera just not the camera card in the bag I need to remember that and my phone charger for that.

I have decided that instead of using Cloth diapers (since we aren't sure where we are going to be living at next year) that I would use cloth wipes they are a lot cheaper to make than buying cloth diapers and easier to use.

Well Summer and Lorelei are in Wisconsin I'm pinning and unpinning everything I want to do with the girls room. We are going to be building some kind of bunk bed for them. I'm super excited for wil to do that. Since LoreLei thinks it's a MUST to jump on LoreLei's bed every day we decided we would give LoreLei summer's twin and look for a full size bed for Summer. Can't wait to make their bedrooms :)! Looking for cute bedding and it will take me months to chose one for them. They both want it PINK hmmm I wonder what other color can go with pink other than purple i'm so sick of pink and purple.. LoreLei says NO PRINCESSES just pink stuff lol.. She's so funny.


Also I have updated everything we have gotten or our needs list for baby friemel :)!

So I haven't wrote in a while.....

I know I haven't wrote a new blog in a while, but we have been doing SO VERY MUCH around the house and getting ready for this baby to come. I'm getting very excited and nervous about the next few weeks. I'm hoping they slow down for a while.....

Last Sunday I went over to my friend Debra's house and baked cookies and a few different types of candies. I would have to say it was something I could do over and over again. I love cooking and baking in OTHER people's kitchens. I think it's because mine is just too small :(! I'm starting to learn the ropes more and more from people though and it's making me get into it more and more. I'll try anything to keep my family happily feed though. No more store bought treats though, this momma will def. start making her own. THANK YOU DEBRA Y.

Here are a few differen't things we made on Sunday...


Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies



Melt away Cookies ... ( I like mine better when they are cold)
Here is the link to the recipe I used...

http://www.landeeseelandeedo.com/2011/12/meltaway-cookies.html

I really enjoyed these cookies however I might try another different type of meltaway cookies next Christmas only because they didn't quiet taste like grandmas christmas cookies :(!.

We made M&M bark with pretzels and Caramel, 5 Minute Fudge, and No bake Oatmeal cookies..
I think we might have made a few other types of cookies but I do not remember for sure. The only thing I can think is MAN my feet were killing me afterwards.

I can't wait to do it again though :)!

We also had our family photos done a few weeks ago.. However Summer is not in these photos. I will be taking her to get some while she's here.. :)! I'm pretty excited !!!!

She is now in NEW JERSEY though, but she was amazing... LoreLei had a lot of fun even if she did break down A LOT lol.

Here are a few sneak peaks..







I have more to tell you about what we have been up too, but I have to get a move on right now or I'll sit here all day. :)!

In the next post I'll tell you about what I just did to my kitchen and shopping list and how I started cutting it in Half and still have all the extra stuff  I need :)!

Christmas Lists
Everyone keeps asking me what Wildon, Summer, Lorelei, the baby, and myself want for Christmas so this is the list I have come up.


LoreLei Lane:
LoreLei Lane basically would like anything you get her. To be honest all she ever tells me she wants is a purple cake when I ask her what she wants, so I came up with a small list of things she likes or needs
She needs pants that are sized 2t/3t, tops that are 3t/4t, and anything that will keep her busy. She likes to color and use stickers. 
Lorelei also likes the following things....

Memory Games
Doctor kits
Books
Chair
Piggy Bank
Leap Pad 2
Small Back Pack
Princess things
Kitchen Sets

Summer LaRae:
Summer told me she would like clothes that are six in size, monster high dolls, and polly pocket things. 

She really likes the colors pink and purple.
This are a few other things that I thought she might like.. A new piggy bank.. A new journal...

Wildon Jakob:
Wildon would really like visa gift cards, gift cards in general, games, and candy. I think he needs some new clothes as well... 

Baby Friemel:
Yes, I know baby friemel will not be here yet, but everyone keeps asking me what to get him for Christmas. The things are on the Baby Friemel  blog that we need but some extra things are A Large Stuffed Giraffe or Elephants, Bottles, and A Sophie the giraffe. 

Myself:
The only things that I can think of are a B pump, purse to match my wallet that is, or a key holder for the wall, Journal, or Fabric. I really like working with Flannel fabric. Super Soft. I really do not need anything this year. I have everything I want :D

http://www.target.com/p/bueno-light-bronze-washed-shoulder-bag/-/A-14263405#prodSlot=large_5_22

Something like that one, something brown or black... Doesn't really matter what it looks like as long as it's not too small, but I really just want Fabric or a Journal.

Thanksgiving and Being Thankful!!!!

Thanksgiving and Being Thankful


I have a few corrections with my 30 day challenge that I did not complete, because I am thankful for more than 30 days worth of things. However, I had a very upsetting phone call from someone who read my blog.  So This is what I have to say about my phone call I received.

My blog is in the moment I do not sit down and write out what I am thinking all the time. It is just what I have on my mind at the moment. And Just because I do not type something does not mean I do not think it, so this part of my blog is for you.

I'm sorry you had to make a big deal about MY BLOG. Yes, at this point in time I am very pregnant, fat, and hormonal, so I am very sorry if I upset you. I'm not trying to be rude nor am I trying to be mean, but you should know what you did said to someone wasn't very kind. You think you are the kindness people in the world, maybe you are wonderful people to the people you have in your everyday lives, but since your so far away you can not see nor do you know what is going on everyday in our lives. 


I am so very thankful for a lot of people and things in my life. And Because of being SO THANKFUL for everything in my life there are not enough days in the month of NOVEMBER to count everything or everyone. Just because I do not list you or say your name does not mean you are not added into my list somewhere. I wish you'd understand that I am one person with a million things going on and this was my stress reliever and to keep family and friends updated on what was going on here. Soon I'll just have it private so that the only people that can see it are people that I have added to my list to be able to see it. 

With this being said next time you do not want to be positive about my life and what is going on in my life maybe you should take a step back and look hard and see what you would do if you were where I am. Take a walk a mile in someone else's shoes before saying things about other peoples lives. I know your life isn't everything perfect. 

What are you Thankful for?????

Basically this is what I have to say about what I am thankful for.. I am thankful for everything and everyone in my life. I have a wonderful family and friends who stick with me thick and thin. Some who are new and Some who are old. I love each and everyone of you guys.


I have to say I am very thankful for my husband who keeps me sane MOST of the time lol, other than when he is playing Halo 4 lol. He helps me through some pretty rough times and I love him very much. I hope that I can help him through as much as he has helped me through.

I am thankful for my children as well who have taught me a lot of things. Who can drive me crazy one moment and be my best friends the next. My children always make me laugh and smile. Thank you to my baby girls.

I am thankful for our extended families who are normally pretty supportive or not. Sometimes they don't always see where we are coming from and that's alright. Nothing is everyone's cup of tea, but with that being said they make us who we are today.

One thing that I do have to say is this.....

I am thankful for all the people I once had in my life who's lives were shorten to soon. I know god had a plan for them though and he allowed them into my life for some period of time and I am VERY GREATFUL and THANKFUL for that. So with that being said I am thankful for my family and friends who's lives were shorten and we've lost. One person I can think of person fast and you all know who that is. Most supportive caring person ever. I love you and miss you very much. Hopefully I'll be seeing you really soon...


Also..

I am very thankful for the people who came into my life who are no longer apart of it because they made me so much stronger. I'd have to say that even though I do not have my father in my life he has given me one of the best things in the world, my brother Seth.


Well I'm done ranting and raving to vent how I feel tonight. Next blog should be on a lighter note :D

PS .. ALL DONE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Baby Friemel....

Baby Friemel.....

So Everyone keeps asking me what we need or what we need for Mister baby Friemel. We have a list I had made a few months back. We won't make a baby Registry, but i have a list of things that we still need for the baby if you are still wanting to know what we need :)!!!
If it has a line through it, it just means we thought of it and have it already, and if it's off the list we probably forgot about it or we haven't thought about using it for this baby. Anything you want to get for mister baby friemel WILL NOT be taken for granted and I want to thank everyone in advance. 

Before I begin to tell you what we need or want I want to tell you more about what is going on..

Most of you didn't even know we were pregnant until a few weeks ago, some probably do not even know it.. It's NOT because we did not want you to know, so do not think you were left outta the loop. We had some very scary health issues. Due to those the doctor told us it was better left unsaid until everything was figured out.
With this pregnancy I have lost 25 lbs, my legs were turning purple, and I was in extreme pain. No one could tell me what was going on and we were scared. My uterus is twisted and tilted caused from a baby c section with little miss LoreLei Lane. Also other things that were causing things to go bad, but now we are extremely excited to say we will be having our first and last little boy. :)!

If you have any questions or comments go ahead and ask me .. Worst thing I'll tell you is to bug off :)!!!!!

And this is why..

And this is why I want to grow out my hair .. 



postpartum-ponytailspostpartum-ponytails





I don't know what goes through my mind every time I chop off my hair. So for now On I think i'm going to post a picture of long hair on every mirror in my house and on my fridge. 

I know this is kind of corny for a blog, but everytime I see someone with perfect long hair I get so jealous. I don't know why I keep cutting off my hair. Its normally not a big deal but I want to keep putting myself together to look more and more like a mother and not a little punk kid. Most people think I look like i'm 13 or 14 I'm almost 27 years old. It's time to put myself together a little more :)!
