The Distraction

I knew I was going to put my foot in my mouth after someone this week told me that they don't have cable on their TV. Of course, my response was, "WHY?????". They told me it was because it was a "waste of time" and a "distraction". Distraction to what??

Apparently this person is smarter than I think, (don't let your head get too big now), but it I really found out the hard way that it is the biggest distraction in our home after our cable cord got cut! We have to wait until Friday to get the new U-verse from AT&T, and we are going out of our minds! The guy at AT&T tried to tell us that we can spend quality time together until Friday...

I'll let you know how that goes...

Learning to Share

I'm not sure if other girls are like me, but I have found that I have a hard time sharing. I actually just realized this. I do not like letting other people share my clothing, shoes, etc. but it actually goes much deeper. When I find a great deal or something totally awesome, I keep it to myself, as if I am trying to hide my secret things. I secretly do not want any other girl knowing about all of my cool "things" because then they might "copy me". I suppose I need to start learning to share... after all, when people "copy" you, it is suppose to be flattering. I am going to try "sharing" some new little things I find and love with all of you. You might want to try them out, too!!

1. This might be a crazy thing to "share", but I know there are people out there that hate taking pills and have a difficult time doing them, just like I do. That is one of the reasons I never took big multivitamins, until I found these....

One A Day VitaCraves - Gummies
I think they actually made me start feeling better after about a week of taking them!

2. We have a difficult time finding good balls for Hurley to play with that he doesn't end up chewing right through. Besides his big clunky Kong ball, we love this new one he got for Christmas.

It's a Cotton Rope Toy from Harry Barker

3. Finally, I normally don't get all crazy for socks, but when I got a pair of these for Christmas and they actually fit, it was a big deal! They have Shea butter built into them and made my feet feel amazing, as well as softer and my feet need it after being on these wood floors all of the time!

I love being an Aunt!

Of course Mark and I are super excited to have our own children someday (yes, he WILL be excited! haha!), but it is just wonderful to be able to spend the fun times with our nieces nephews, teach them inappropriate things, and then send them home!

All of our family members have learned that Mark and I are notorious for teaching small children things that will embarrass them when they go in public and say or do it. Kati is one of our favorites. She is at the exact age where she repeats everything! We have now moved on from just showing her to dance with "hands on your knees" and showing "see-food" at the dinner table, to teaching her that it is a great idea to work at Hooters when she grows up, as well as asking Santa for a boob-job.

I know we will get what's coming to us.... but it's just so darn cute!
