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...

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
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. 

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

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...


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

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 .. 


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 :)!

What to do with LoreLei Lane ..

LoreLei's Birthday .. :)

On Oct 31st was LoreLei Lanes Birthday Party And More..

We have a very eventful day with Lorelei and Lily. We had so much work to get done in the morning and surprisly we got it all finished on time, even with two little girls who didn't want us to get anything done. Both were surprisingly crabby. Maybe crabby is not the correct word of choice, but they sure weren't themselves. LoreLei was just over tired, and Lily is teething.

When Lily went down for a nap though she went down hard. She's such a little sweetheart though I don't mind her being a little fuss butt. :)! Her smile melts me in half.

Okay on with the day....

LoreLei had her "girls" come over for a while since they couldn't come to her party. They brought her some chalk and make up.. She was so excited. I think she was most excited about the balloons though.

Their mother, Miss Deborah, helped me mix somethings while I got Lily ready to go home. THANK YOU miss DEBORAH for all your help.

Also thank you Mister Wildon who also spent all day in the kitchen with me :) and going on my little runs when I forgot to grab things at the store.

LoreLei Lane did however get her darn purple cake that she wanted. When we made frosting though we made pink and green. It was a lot of fun :)!

We ran outta time for the frosting so we did a QUICK frosting job, but the cake and the frosting sure we yummy :D 


thank you jenna and kristie for bringing your families over to share some time with us for lorelei's birthday :D

30 Day Challenge

What Am I thankful for ....

1 st ... I am thankful for my life... :)!!!!! So many people are unhealthy at at this point in my life I have been lucky to be very healthy with everything that has happened.  Might sound kind of an ego  thing but i see to many people being ill.. makes me sad :(

2nd .... I am so thankful for my children and child to be. Sometimes this mother gets a little frustrated with things they do or say, but it doesn't mean I'm not thankful for them. I love them very much.

Summer LaRae is Summer LaRae.. My little Princess. She's my sweet cuddle bug who will tell me how much she loves me and what I do for her that she loves. She is a hard child to put to words, only because she's such an easy daughter to love. :)

LoreLei Lane.. She's my Clown. My Frankie Jane.. My baby girl who makes me laugh every single day. No matter what she's always making me laugh. If she's happy nor sad she'll still make you laugh.  She's a character I can tell you that.

3rd.... Death do Us Apart... I am very thankful for my husband. I am thankful for him because of many reasons, not just one, because he sure has changed my life.

Without him I'd be back to square one.. Lost and Confused.. He is Simply wonderful. As Korny as that sounds.

4th... I would have to say I'm very thankful for meeting some of the most amazing in EVER. Some  people don't know this but i have a very supportive mother in law. Who has been there for us and helped us through some rough times. Also I'm thankful for what my mother has been there or not been there for through out the years.. She's made me a very strong person.

5th.. I am thankful homemade Chix Noodle Soup on days that I'm not feeling very well. Not only does the taste of it make me feel better the smell of it reminds me of back home. Reminds me of the simple things that can make a person happy.

6th. I am thankful that I can be a stay at home mother for now. It means the world to me to be able to stay at home. Days I go crazy I remember what it is like to actually get dressed and go to work and not see or talk to my loved ones until the day is over. :(!

7th. I am thankful for the right to be able to vote in our country for what I believe in.. Even if the person next to me does NOT vote for the same person. I'm also thankful I don't have to listen to election stuff for another few years :D :D

8th... I am thankful for my brother Brett, who turned 16 today :)! He has actually made me the strong person I am today. Without him I would have NOT grown up fast. And I would have NOT been as strong as I am today. Him and I have went through a lot in our life time together and I love him dearly. He's one of the people I think about daily and one reason  I can not wait to get back to wisconsin for. I need my brother back in my everyday life. I LOVE YOU BRETT LLOYD EDGE.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY......

9th... I am thankful for the fact I had my grandparents growing up. If it weren't for them I do not know where I would be today. I am thankful because they showed me right from wrong.

10th..... This one might be a little harsh, but I am very thankful about how mean my father talked to me the last time I talked to him he made me want to be a better person and become a better mother.

11th... For all the vets out there like my uncle John "fuzzy" elliott... John was one of the most caring men in the world. He has showen me so much in life. He is MY HERO forever. Thank you for being part of my life.. You might be gone, but you are never forgotten. You will always have a place in my heart.

12th... I am thankful for the shelter I have over my head. Even though I might HATE HATE this apartment I am so very thankful for it. Without it I would not be able to take care of my children the way I do.

13th... My daily thanks goes to my husbands father...Whenever Wil is down or confused about something he is just a phone call away and helps Wil understand what he's confused or lost about. It really means a lot to me to know Someone is there willing to help out as much as he can and still be across the country.

14th.. I'm thankful for the babysitting jobs I have, without them I don't think I would be able to keep up with the extra activities this families wants to do :)!

15th.... I'm thankful for the nice people I've met here in Florida and the help they have given this family. One of the ladies I babysit for just gave us a mobile and bumper set.. How sweet .. :D 

16th... I'm thankful for my PAPA.. yes I said MY PAPA! He's the most AMAZING guy who is alive to this day making sure day to day we have everything we need. I love you grandpa.. Thank you for all your love and support.

17th...I'm thankful for my grandma .. Without her who knows how I would have managed over the years.. thank you!

18th.... I'm thankful for my friends here in florida.. they are amazing. I'll be sad that I leave .

Randomness From LoreLei Lane

As I'm sitting on the couch I hear something coming from LoreLei was some babbling. I really wanted to know what the heck she was talking about or two.
She was standing next to my vaccum cleaner saying OH HUSBAND of mine, 
You dear are my best friend and I love you.
While she's hugging the darn thing tries to Kiss it and says Baby I love you.
I'm going to bed goodnight .. What a nerd ... 

Getting Ready For Trunk Or Treating..

Trunk or Treating in Navarre 

To be honest this is the first time I have ever heard of 
have you ever heard of it?
Until My friend told me about it!
After she told me about it we had to try it. 

We had a good ole' time Trunk or Treating
We also got a hay ride. 
The YMCA did a great job putting it on
I was very impressed.

Oh and LoreLei got a "tattoo" she was so excited.
She tells me she's getting one for her birthday that doesn't come off
What the hay she's going to be three.
I don't think so.
