This is one of my favorite video's of Mike and Ruth. I've been wanting to post it for ages but couldn't because of technical difficulties. She's 2 months old in this.....I only just noticed the swear word in the back ground sorry.

This girl hates shoes.......but she did better with them today.

Smart Baby.

I woke up this morning to a post on this blog under my name that I hadn't written. It was titled "I Love This Man Even Though He Isn't My Husband" I didn't read it on the off chance it would be a virus so I don't know what was in it but I'm sorry if anyone else did.

Great Find

For months I've been looking for something to keep my current needle work in that wouldn't be an eye soar in my living room. There are obviously lots of options out there but I was looking for a GREAT price and I found it:) I went to the clearance isle at Walmart and found this large picnic basket sitting there just for me. The problem was it didn't have a price tag. Hoping for the best I took it to the check out with me. The manager happened to be close by and on finding out I had this basket she let me have it for $3 because she was sick of it coming up to the register and not being able to find a price for it. I love it!!!


My wonderful friend Kristie chopped 9 inches off my hair today! Can you believe it was that long? 1 more inch and I would have been able to donate it but there wasn't a whole lot of it since I was close to going bald after having Ruth. Seriously! When it just kept coming out (women usually experience hair lose after giving birth due to hormone changes and other annoying things) I thought I was going to wake up one morning with bald patches. My pony tails were maybe the circumference of a dime...maybe smaller. It was the most pathetic pony tail you've ever seen on a grown woman. 
p.s. I took these pictures cause Mike was scared of what he's come home to so a request was made for me to email pics. to him.

p.p.s. He says it looks thicker:)

Amanda has been visiting this week (more on that later) which made it possible for us to go on a date for our anniversary:) AMAZING!!!!

To start off Mike and I both completely forgot about it! In fact Amanda was the one who told me it was my anniversary.....pathetic, but it was pretty funny to see the Oh Crap face when I said "Happy Anniversary" to Mike.

We broke protocol and took Amanda and Ruthie out for Anniversary Thai food. The constant moving and shifting of plates/glasses/utensils/napkins out of Ruth's reach kept us on our toes. SHE IS SO FAST! AND SNEAKY!! AND STRONG!!!

Ruth mourned at the front door while we were at a movie. Amanda said she would crawl over to the door and whimper like she kept expecting us to come back through it. I love that girl.

3 years:)

‎"If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand." - Dave Ramsey

Good Bye

Mike and I decided it was time to get rid of Friar Tuck so we buzzed him off. We did it really fast before I had to much time to think about it........when I saw the hair on the ground I was soooooo sad but she actually looks really cute:) in a boy kind of way:)
