eta: Not in labor...I don't think. I did not sleep well at all last night due to someone having their head as close to the "border" as possible without peeking on out! I have a dr's appointment today at 2:30. Lots of pressure and other issues to discuss, so maybe Baby Faithful is trying to make an early appearance. That'd be my luck considering I actually have my tubal scheduled into my surgery process already! Regardless, those suckers are leaving the hospital tied into a pretty bow!
Thursday, October 29, 2009
So many other things are going on in our lives right now, too that I feel like we are moving at warp speed. Some of it good, others definitely not good. I will try to fill you in on all that stuff soon and I will try to post at least once more before we bring home baby.

1. I wish, more than anything, for more energy right now. I.am.tired. No, make that exhausted. I feel like my last few weeks being Mommy to the just the Lovely Ladies is going down the drain because I don't have enough energy to muster to go out and be the all fun Mommy. It makes me sad.
2. I wish all our house projects would just magically complete themselves.
3. I wish time would stand still for just a weekend. I want to just have time to stare at my girls and memorize their sweet faces. I want to have a date night with Hubby and not feel like it is taking time away from something else I should be doing. I want to cuddle at home with my sweet family and watch movies and eat popcorn and listen to the music of their laughter.
4. I wish the hospital to change their visitation policy before November 5th. Currently, due to the flu, they are not allowing anyone under the age of 19 to come up on the floor. I am NOT happy about that at all. My issue is that the criteria to visit is based off of age and not a general health assessment. Who's to say that the new grandma coming to visit in the room next to me isn't hacking like crazy and has been suffering from flu-like symptoms? We all know people like this and it's not age related at all. Explain to my 3 year old why she can't come and see her Mommy or the new baby brother/sister that she has been trying to come to terms with meeting.
5. I wish the money tree would sprout in my back yard. Enough said.
6. I wish the anxiety that I feel like I am drowning in would wash away.
7. I wish I could find a super cute haircut that wouldn't require a lot of "work" right now.
Is that too much to wish for?
eta: Crap! Tells you how tired I am...I really thought it was Wednesday!

On another note, who watched the Reunion show of the Real Housewives of NJ? Those bi-otches are CRAZY! Can't wait to see part 2.
And of course, the news of the day here in SC, Gov.Sanford and his affair. I'm trying to remember that we are all human and make mistakes. As a spouse I am struggling with that. Why, if you are trying to work on your marriage, would you find it necessary to slip away unbeknownst to anyone to go visit you mistress/former mistress/whatever she is? I feel certain he was keeping an eye on the ongoings of the state from afar, however, what about the ongoings of your family? That isn't something plastered all over the television. What if he had been in a plane crash and his family didn't even have a clue as to where he was? I can sum this up by simply stating that this was a very disappointing revelation today...and David Letterman you can keep all your snarky remarks to yourself.
Saving the best for last: we had our ultrasound today. I almost caved and had the technician tell us the sex of the baby, but I managed to stay strong. Hubby and I both think it's a boy though. The face seems so different than the lovely ladies and the "feeling" hit while looking at it (and I HATE referring to my child as an it). This child looks perfect by everything we saw today and now I am officially excited! Looks, too, like we have a thumb sucker on our hands. Many happy tears were shed!

*Lovebug became an official cheerleader today--cracking up watching her practice her cheers. BTW, when did cheering for a football team include mentioning your manicure, highlights, etc in the cheers? Just wondering.
*The Old Faithful family made an appearance on the evening news. Went shopping for some baby furniture. Hit up a local store that we didn't realize had taken some folks money and then closed it's doors and filed Chapter 7. The local news crew was in the parking lot when we got there and filmed us as we all made our way to the door. Didn't tell us we were filmed and I didn't even know we were on there until one of my neighbors called and asked me if I had been shopping today! I was.NOT.camera.ready!!
*Lovebug and Birdie both got haircuts today. Lovebug opted to get about 4 inches cut off. She now believes that she looks so different that no one will recognize her!
*It's a wedding weekend for me and I have got to find some motivation.
*When pregnant it is best to not give into all your cravings. We had breakfast for dinner tonight (one of my favorites!) and I think I gained 5 pounds in one seating with biscuits and gravy...proceeded to spend the next few hours in pain wishing I could just throw it all up already!
*Hubby's company confirmed even more so today that they suck monkey nuts! And his manager doesn't have the balls that God promised a billy goat. Yes, I said it.
*Two children when bored will proceed to aggravate the t-total crap out of you while picking on each other. Am beginning to think my idea of trying to be more laid back and provide a summer more like one of a yesteryear wasn't such a good idea.
*Patience isn't something I have a lot of right now and I am getting in nesting mode all at the same time. Scary.

What is your salad dressing of choice? depends on the restaurant. If I'm at Outback it's hard to pass on their Caesar salad, but I've grown to love their ranch as well. I love some parmesan peppercorn and I will never turn down some honey mustard to dip french fries in.
What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? Again it depends. Chain restaurant would be hands down, Cheesecake Factory!!
What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it? This is a toughie, especially for a lady who's preggo, but it would be sushi (and yes, I'm just getting the cooked stuff right now-uggh!) or steak. I know, weird combo that couldn't be more different from each other
What are your pizza toppings of choice?Pepperoni, mushrooms and bacon--well done. Love those pepperonis crunchy!
What do you like to put on your toast? Strawberry jelly
How many televisions are in your house?3
What color cell phone do you have? silver
Are you right-handed or left-handed?Right
Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Besides two very large babies, no.
What is the last heavy item you lifted? Birdie. And that girl sure isn't a feather.
Have you ever been knocked unconscious? that would be a yes
If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?No way!
If you could change your name, what would you change it to? Wouldn't change it
Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000? Would I be allowed to vomit half way through and could I take breaks to cool the mouth with some bread and water?
Last run-in with a cop? I was in an accident in 1999 and that's the last time--Thank goodness!
Last person you talked to? Lovebug or Birdie
Last person you hugged? Birdie
Favorite Season? Fall with Spring being a close second
Day of the week? Right now Saturdays --love getting up and heading to the Farmer's Market
Month? This one's hard. I love September because football season starts. I love October because the weather is beginning to change, as well as the leaves...and it's Lovebug's birthday and hello, Halloween. I love June because school is coming to an end and means more laid back days are on the horizon and Birdie's birthday takes place.
First place you went this morning? Birdie's room to get her out of her crib. Yes, she just turned 3 and yes, she's still in a crib. It keeps her contained and I can rest at night not worrying that she is going to get up and roam the house!
What's the last movie you saw? Bolt. Saw it today on pay-per-view. The lovely ladies and I are having a bum day and instead of going out in the heat we watched movies!
Do you smile often? Yes, the fine lines are wanting to creep up on me to prove it!
Do you always answer your phone?No. There are times I just don't feel like talking. Doesn't mean I'm mad at anyone or that I don't like them. It just means I don't want to talk. Don't read anything into it!
It's four in the morning and you get a text message who is it? It'd have to be an intoxicated friend. There are 3 of them I could think of that would do this!
If you could change your eye color what would it be? I have hazel eyes, which I feel like you don't see a lot of and I like that!
What flavor drink do you get at Sonic? I haven't been there in forever so I would say just a Dr.Pepper
Do you own a digital camera? Yes, and it's on it's last leg
Have you ever had a pet fish? several
Favorite Christmas song? "Little Drummer Boy"
What's on your wish list for your birthday? Considering it's next month you'd think I'd have a list going, but there is so much that needs to be done to get ready for baby that I'm more concerned with that than anything else. A week at the beach would be fantastic with a facial, massage and pedi while I'm there.
Can you do push ups? No
Can you do a chin up? I wish!
Does the future make you more nervous or excited? Both. Bringing a new baby home always brings a wide range of emotions.
Do you have any saved texts? They aren't saved on purpose, just because I'm too lazy to delete them all
Ever been in a car wreck? a couple plus a moped wreck (when I got knocked unconscious!)
Do you have an accent? Most definitely...and I'm fine with that. I am Southern by the Grace of God after all!
What is the last song to make you cry? I'm sure it was something while riding in the car with the lovely ladies and they were singing. I know these days will be a memory all too soon.
Plans tonight? Hanging with the lovely ladies and seeing what smut television will be available to watch once I put them to bed.
Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom? Maybe? I don't know.
Name 3 things you bought yesterday? I did not purchase one.single.thing yesterday. Whoo hoo!
Have you ever been given roses? Yes, but Hubby knows that his Wife prefers tulips any day of the week!
Current worry? which one should I list first, hmmmm.... 1. baby and it's health (I tend to be paranoid with pregnancy until the ultrasound where they can make sure everything is developing like it's supposed to) 2. My daddy and his health (my current nightmare is that something is going to happen to him while I'm in the hospital having baby!). 3. Hubby and his job (things are going in the right direction, but you never know)
Current hate right now? probably shouldn't go there
Met someone who changed your life? Yes. The most important was the Hubby which led to the lovely ladies
How did you bring in the New Year? Holy cow, I can't even remember! Must of been spectacular huh?
What song represents you? this makes me laugh, because I'm going to list something you'd never guess..."Freebird"
What were you doing 12 AM last night? I was trying to sleep, but was worried the garage door was still open. Once I got up to check that I had to go around and check all the doors and make sure they were locked. Hubby and Old Faithful hit the road late and I was having a hard time going to sleep to say the least!
What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up? Food!
I will step off my soap box now.

Looking for a beach rental on the coast of SC--anywhere from Sullivan's Island to North Litchfield. VRBO is running SUPER slow and is trying my patience right now. I've looked at several realty companies with very little catching my eye. Help!!

Today you turned three. Where did the past three years go? Up until the day you were born I was terrified that I couldn't possibly love you like I did your sister...and then I layed eyes on that sweet cherub face. That was the first lesson you taught me, that a Mother's heart can truly grow to accommodate all her children. Day to day I watch you and you just seem to find a way to always make me smile. I hope I always remember the way you love to snuggle up in my lap and place your little hand on my face so you can just feel my face. I love the way that I can be dressed in icky clothes and be a big mess you will still say how pretty you think I am and how much you like my shirt. I love the way you love to "shake your booty". I love the way your little head fits perfectly in the space between my chin and shoulder and your sweet curls fall down my arm. I love the way you sing "Cowgirls don't cry" and you don't yet understand how true the meaning of the words are. I love the way we sit in your room every night for our moments chatting about the day and you always put on a show so you can watch your shadow dance across the wall. I love that when you aren't feeling your best you will ask me to rub your arm or leg and somehow it makes it all better. There's so much more, but most importantly, I love that I have been blessed enough to call you my daughter.

I've started working on my next event. It is very safe to say that no two events are alike. I should have some pics from my last one by the end of this week and I'm so excited to share them with you. There are two on my website, but one is a little hidden and you'll have to work to find it. www.hullabalooevents.net
I'm sitting here watching some Jon and Kate Plus 8 right now and that is going to have to be a whole other post. Interesting how her attitude towards others has changed now that her husband seems to have grown a backbone and is standing up to her. That's all I'm saying on that subject for now!

Only 24 weeks and 1 more day of being pregnant during this lifetime for me. I'm trying to enjoy it, even through the tiredness and nausea. It's strange knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the end of this phase of my life. Little sad about it, not gonna lie. Not sad enough to rethink the tubal.
Sunday, May 17, 2009
I will post more pics as I get them from my FAVORITE photographer, who I am so excited that I was able to finally work with on a wedding! I'll let her pics do the talking for me!

1. Kelly? Is she on drugs? Is she bipolar? Both maybe?! Bethenny is a MUCH better person than me because I swear to God I would have ended up donkey konging her a$$. Ladylike? No, but enough already with the interrupting, putting yourself on a pedestal and believing basically you do no wrong and transferring all the blame for the tension between you and Bethenny. Team Bethenny all the way!!
2. Ramona, Ramona, Ramona. You are probably the only person that believes you actually look young...and I swear I can't wait for the episode when one of your eyeballs pop straight out of your head and you have to rinse and reset it. I will pee my pants!
3. Alex and Simon. Your kids are like crazy animals. Invest in a double jogging stroller and keep them buckled in while shopping. And really, you should rethink that whole parenting book thing you've got going on.
4. Scenes from the finale look CRazY!! Wow!!

Today we dropped our family doggie off that we affectionately refer to as Monkey Dog. Hubby forgave the strong stench of cigarette smoke while dropping little Monkey Dog off with you. However, when you call us two hours later to let us know our doggie is ready and we arrange a pick up time A. you should be there at said time and B. please for all things Holy, do NOT, I REPEAT, DO.NOT let my Hubby in on the inside scoop of your monthly "visitor" and how your tampon is not doing what it is supposed to. Put your apron back on and cover the evidence. This will cause you to lose a client. PROMISE.

Lovebug's rear end is feeling much better today...thank goodness. That girl is an A+ drama mama and I was fearful this would drag out for a bit. With that being said, I can admit today that I really did almost throw up when I saw the splinter. When I say huge, I mean it was right at two inches long! Thank goodness the thing didn't break off in her mad dash to get inside.
And finally, the pregnancy. I was shocked when I found out I was pregnant...to say the least. Eight years ago when I got pregnant with Lovebug it took several months of "trying". Then with Birdie it took over a year and "trying" got even more complicated. I went off birth control last summer anticipating at some point I would have a huge desire to consult the calendar for my make or break days, but instead I decided I was going to turn it over to God and let him decide the path for my family and I. From day to day I would waver as to whether I wanted to pursue this, but I always had faith that God would do what he felt right for us. And so here I am, pregnant for my last time, with my last baby ever and now that a doctor has had a chance to look at my little blessing and say things look just fine, I am happy. Don't get me wrong I still get sad thinking of all the little things that will change for our lovely ladies and us, like Friday night sleepovers in my bed with Lovebug (will she be too old to still want to do that after a baby is settled into a routine?), my morning snuggle fests with Birdie (will her heartbreak at having to share her Mommy with some little needy person?), and the list goes on. But then my heart soars thinking of all the NEW things ahead. And hearing Birdie saying in the car ride home from the dr, "Mommy has a baby in her belly" was a slice of heaven.

Easter was wonderful! Saturday evening we went and had dinner with our friend family and caught up and visited with some out of town friends that I haven't seen in probably 13 years. The kids all participated in an Easter egg hunt...and it of course was hilarious! Sunday morning we got up early to let the girls have time to look through all their Easter goodies and then get ready to head to brunch. It was fantastic!! We didn't make it to church... the Wife has been under the weather lately and knew that sitting still through an entire service would be quite a challenge, especially on Easter Sunday as there are about a million more people in attendance and it takes forever for everyone to do communion. I'll have to make it up this Sunday.

Update on my vendor rant: Crazy MM (as I will now refer to her) is now wanting to charge us $255 to move her chairs that we.are.NOT.even.using!! To make it even more wacko, according to her information, there is only 60 chairs in this location!! Really? Wow! My client and her mother are at their breaking point with her so please all pray that I'm able just to hold the pieces together to orchestrate a fantastic event and get it over with. I'm sure it's safe to say that this is NOT a vendor that I will not only never recommend, but given the snarkiness I've received from her I doubt she'll ever recommend me.
Sunday, April 5, 2009
And ladies, if you are planning a wedding or any other big event, be very cautious of people that are adamant about you using their, and only their, recommended vendors. I believe that everyone in the industry should have SEVERAL vendors for each area of an event that they can recommend and work well with. Just my 2 cents!!:)

The past few days I've been watching Baby Girl. Really watching her. How is she such a big girl already? We are working on potty training and she is getting to where she doesn't even want to put a diaper on. She doesn't sit in the high chair anymore and she has taken up drinking in a "big girl" cup. And the things that she says. Oh how my heart melts. In the morning she loves to crawl into bed with me. She'll roll over and start rubbing my face and will say, "I love you Mommy". Another thing she likes to tell the Hubby and I is that we're her "best friend". So with all these changes I think it's only fitting that I officially change her nickname from Baby Girl to Birdie...because she is ready to start spreading her wings and learning how to fly. Oh to be a proud Mommy, with a breaking heart.

Update on my Daddy: The dr's did the dye test before surgery and decided that at this time the blockages are minimal enough that they are going to continue to treat him with medication. I'm sure there was talk of healthier eating habits and less smoking, but that's the part of the story I may never hear. Hopefully, we can work on healing our hearts in more ways than one now. I know that we will always be a dysfunctional family at best, but I have to at least do my part in letting go of the things I can't control. That is my 2nd quarter of the year resolution!!:)

side note: PLEASE excuse the extremely brassy blond locks on my head! I went in for some highlights the week before our trip and they.messed.up...big! I refused to leave the salon after the first round of color and this is what I ended up looking like after the 2nd try. Seeing that I was in a wedding the very next day and I didn't want my hair to start falling out I decided to leave well enough alone.

side note: I went to the meeting last night (snotty nose self and all!) and I really liked it. I've got one other meeting with the Children's Museum here that I've thought about joining before I make a final decision. It's one or the other for me as I cannot, as much as I try, produce more time to get to everything I want to do. I'll keep you posted.
Monday, March 2, 2009
Saturday morning I was awaken by Baby Girl (who is starting to take to the nickname Birdie--more on that later!) at the spry hour of 5:15! WTH!? I had just gotten home at 12:45! Thankfully, Lovebug's soccer practice was cancelled due to the crappy ole weather and I got to hang out and lounge for a bit before a Mommy/Daughter day running errands with Lovebug. That child was in some serious need for some new tennis shoes and we just made a day of it.
Sunday aka the day of rest....I had to go to the grocery store for our week's supply. I did this when.every.other.tom.dick.and.harry were making a run for their milk and bread! Good times? I think not! After fighting the crowds and running in the icky sleet/rain mix I was ready to come back home and nestle down. Positive note for the day--I saved right at $40 in coupons! Love it!!
Today school was cancelled because of the said icky weather which ended up dropping around 5 inches of snow on us as well and we woke up to no power! I thank the good Lord above for gas logs, gas hot water heaters, and a gas stove. Hubby made us all a fantastic steak, red bell pepper and goat cheese omelet and we enjoyed coffee from the french press! Now the power's back on, looks like school is a go tomorrow, the white stuff is melting away and all is right in the world!
Tomorrow brings the Junior League Open House which I have decided to attend. I want to make a decision on joining after I get a feel for the group. I am also in the "I'm hosting a shower in my house this weekend" mode which means LOTS of running around for me! If you all have read this far, bless you! Hope I didn't bore you to tears! It'll be better next time (or the time after that!), I promise!
Sunday, March 1, 2009
While the snow you are bestowing among the Upstate of my lovely state is quite beautiful, I believe Ms. Nature you may need to take a look at a calendar. Mine says March 1st, which logically means we are past the point for such winter weather. My tulips have begun pushing their way up through the ground. My cherry trees are starting to form little buds. Add to that, this is the busiest week I've had since the holiday season and well, this area is known to completely shut down at the first sign of winter weather. You must stop this madness!

Today I reach all the way across this great country of ours and wrap my arms around you. Today I am a shoulder for you to cry on. Today I strive to make you laugh at least once. (I may even aggravate you on purpose just to divert your mind!) Most importantly, today Little Sister, I say a prayer for you and your family that Sweet P's absence goes by quickly, that he comes back home to you safely and that each day you view a piece of him while watching little Sweet P.
I love you,
Your Big Sister
Wednesday, January 28, 2009
Every time I look at this I can not help but laugh! I visualize what it'd be like to be at/host a party and this be the cake served. Think about your friends...and THE cake. Me's thinking Olivia's "friends" don't likey Olivia after all.

On another note, how excited are you about Mr CJ Spiller deciding to forgo the big pay out of pro football and sticking it out one more year at Clemson. I am beyond words excited about this! And poor guy, he has undoubtedly taken a stance against his mother with his decision. We listened to the press conference in the car today and when asked about the stress it's caused you could hear him choke up. I just wanted to stalk, I mean, hug him and tell him in the end it will all work out. Here's to not selling out, for following your heart (even though it was obviously very difficult) and to getting this gentleman in the running for the Heisman next year!!

I also re-read Where the Red Fern grows after Lovebug finished it. I cried more than she did!! Actually reading it for her wasn't as heart breaking as I thought it would be. However, when she would try to retell it she would get all choked up. I, on the other hand, went to bed two nights ago with an awful headache due to all the tears!! Go figure!
And in keeping with my downright hatred at the time for Best Buy: I STILL HATE BEST BUY! QUIT HOLDING MY COMPUTER HOSTAGE! IT IS TIME FOR IT TO COME HOME!!
and P., it is an Acer--sorry! I haven't had any real problems with it though until I sent it in to get the whole charging thing taken care of. Hope that makes you feel better!!

Hubby leaves tonight to start back with the business of traveling. He won't be home until Friday. Lovebug started back to school today. I think I'm going to take back the statement where I was ready to get back to a routine. I think I may go into routine overload.
Sidenote: We bought Lovebug Where the Red Fern Grows for Christmas and I am anxiously waiting for her to get to the end of it so we can discuss it. She is now on page 190. Some folks were shocked that I bought her this book, but who doesn't remember the first time they read it? It is still, to this day, one of my most favorite books and I was just excited that she was finally able to read it. Bless her heart though, she is going to cry like a crazy person during the whole last chapter!!
Monday, January 5, 2009
Ok, got the one sentence out of the way. Tomorrow it's back to the daily grind of school activities. Alarm clock is set--ugghh! It'll be nice though to get back into a routine. I think we all need it.
Got a new bride and guess what? She's one of Dabo's neighbors!! I had to tell her my stalker stories, which thankfully she got a huge kick out of. She and her mother invited me to come by their house...I really don't think they know what they've gotten themselves into!! What if he's a guest at the wedding?! I will have a professional photographer there to document my stalky ways!! Could be interesting.

I realized after my rant I never posted about NYE or any post Christmas festivities. Whooh did we have fun for NYE. Went to a friends house to enjoy some margaritas and play the Wii. I cannot tell you (how many margaritas I had) how sore I was the next day after boxing!! What a workout! I keep telling Hubby we need to get a Wii, but I think we would become two worthless human beings---with great bodies.:) We spent the night with our friends as to not drink and drive and not be on the road with other idiots that decide to drink and drive.
The next morning we got up and headed home to start our beans for the traditional New Year's meal. You know the one. Black eyed peas, collard greens, some pork, and cornbread. It's supposed to bring money to you in the new year. While we aren't rolling around in beds stuffed with money every night we are definitely blessed. We also had to get ready to watch our Tigers play. That didn't quite go as planned. Still love them though and am looking forward to see what next season brings.
On the 2nd we were invited to an Oyster Roast, which is one of my favorite things in the world! Left Baby Girl at home with a sitter while we took Lovebug with us. We had the best time and the caterers that did the food really knew what they were doing! Yummy!! Yesterday both lovely ladies went with us to the Clemson basketball game. Lovebug gets to go with Hubby every year for one as a "date". Baby Girl and I decided to tag along for this one. It was the first time taking her and she kept talking about how "awesome" it was! I loved it! On our way out we saw the Tiger Cub and had the opportunity to pose for a quick picture--not that I can show you now, but I will soon, promise!. Baby Girl was a little scared of him, but of course, Love Bug was all about it!!
I feel like we were at full speed this entire break. I'm almost looking forward to setting the alarm clock and getting back into my regularly scheduled life. almost.
Rant over...until next time!
