Happy Easter

Wow did we have a busy weekend. We had all kinds of company in, Poppa and Step-Mommie and Mabel were all in. We decided to have Gabbie baptized in the Catholic church as well so it was a double whammy for us. I dont have any pictures yet but when i do I'll post them. It really was great and she did such a good job through the whole thing. Now I need another day off just to rest from the weekend.

Life has been chaos still but its starting to get on schedule. Gabbie has been sleeping through the night, like 9 hours sometimes, which is great. Shes gotten into a real good schedule with everything. I'm so thankful for that. I need to work on her night time schedule a bit but i'm not complaining. Juggeling everything else has gotten a bit easier although I'm still running around crazy half the time. All in all I think I'm doing pretty well considering.

That's about it for now. As soon as I have pictures from this weekend I will post them. Until then here is one from last week. Until next time, Ya'll have a good one.

Crazy Week

Well I survived my first week back at work..... barely. I dont know how working moms do it. By friday I was exhausted. I was up early and asleep late and still didnt keep it all together, plus I'm pumping to keep Gabbie on breastmilk which is much more taxing than I had thought it would be. I'm sure it will get better as time goes on but for right now its pure chaos.

We have family in this weekend so there wasn't much relaxing going on but its been nice seeing everyone. I don't have much time so I'll have to keep this short and sweet. I just wanted to let you know that I'm alive and I did survive this week.

2 Years Ago Today

It was 2 years ago that The Man and I closed on our house. I really can't believe its been that long, but it has. I've been sitting here, drinking my coffee, and thinking about all the changes we have made to the house thus far. Mind you they have been small changes but never-the-less, still changes.

We removed the hideous mauve fruit wallpaper from the kitchen, painted it my fav color, and fixed the pink counter tops.

Then we painted the horrendous 70s brick fireplace! Unfortunately I didn't get any before pictures but you can only imagine. We painted it and removed the faux built-in book cases that were on either side.

To celebrate our first anniversary in the house, we planted 4 fruit trees, 2 peach and 2 apple.

We won't be changing anything to commemorate the 2nd year just yet but I'm sure before the summer is over there will be another change to The Farm. It may be the addition of a four-legged food source!! I'm hoping!!!

In other news, I'm finishing up my overhaul of the house before life falls down around my ankles on Monday. I'm dreading going back to work. I pray that I have the strength and energy to keep everything together. I know everything will eventually fall into a rhythm but I'm such a "planner" that I want everything to go as smoothly as possible. Pray for me!!!

Well, it's about time for The Man to wake up so I'll stop here. Until next time, ya'll have a good one!!
