Your Three Words & Friday Hops

It's here... THE WEEKEND!!
Happy Friday everyone!


Best Friend's Wedding

That's right... one of my best friends is getting married!!!
I mentioned this earlier on this blog somewhere that she was engaged recently & it's been a long time coming so I am so super excited for her. I went to visit her to see her big rock and she never stopped smiling the entire time she was talking & telling me details. It was so SWEET!

She has an appointment tomorrow to try on some wedding dresses and asked me to go along and I am trying REALLY hard to make plans so I can, because I have been waiting FOREVER to see her in a white dress! {not as long as she has been waiting I'm sure, but you get the point!}.

I won't reveal all of the cool wedding plans they have made already but as September gets closer, I will probably be more giddy for her... just a warning!

Let the fun begin!!!


Friday Blog Hops:


1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?
My Husband & I were set up on a blind date by a woman I use to work with & her daughter. The date went well, obviously and the rest is history. I'm not sure we knew it was love 'instantly' but we did fall pretty hard for each other in a short amount of time. ♥

2. What is your favorite room in your house?
The living room - our couch is super comfy & the girls have most of their toys on there so we are in that room 90% of the time.

3. Can you wiggle your ears?
Why, yes I can!

4. What is your evening ritual?
Most nights it goes like this:
4:45 I am home - Hubster picks up the girls & arrives before or around the same time.
Play - Play - Play - Ask about their days - hugs & kisses!
6:00 (or around there) - Dinner
Play - Play - Play after dinner
7:00 - 7:30 baths
8:00 - 8:30 bedtime for the girls
then it's either relax, fold laundry, do some stuff, read, play on the computer, snuggle with hubby until bedtime which is about 10-11-ish.
The weekends are a little different; the girls may stay up later; we may go out somewhere, etc.!

5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
Ha! What is sleep? Seriously - I've functioned with anywhere from a couple hours sleep to 7 hours sleep so apparently it doesn't matter much nowadays!

A wee bit of me!

Found this cute little link up on another blog & decided to give it a try!

Please head on over to Leigh Ashley to link up & join in the fun.

{one} name one thing you worry about running out, let me think. Coffee! yeah, I am completed addicted to it and need at least a cup in the morning to get me thru my day. And if I run out, thankfully Wawa never does. =)

{two} what is your favorite pizza topping?
cheese. like... lots & lots & lots of cheeeeese!

{three} what is your favorite harrison ford movie?
American President. cheesy maybe but he totally kicks ass!

{four} apple juice or orange juice?
orange juice.

{five} what’s your favorite thing to do on a sunday afternoon?
RELAX! It's really the only day to do nothing all day, stay in our pj's and chill. Plus, I have to go to work the next day so I try not to think about THAT. {we have attempted Church a few times and I could make every excuse in the book like the fact that Abbie will not sit still for that long but the truth is... I miss it!}

{six} what is the wallpaper on your cellphone of?
Jaelyn & Abbie 

{seven} do you have a favorite tv commercial?
Right now I totally crack up at the "I pick things up and put them down" commercial. I think it's for Planet Fitness maybe?

Here... let me find it on YouTube and see if you are as quirky as I am:

{eight} what is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
ummm, wow... I really don't think I've ever eaten anything weird? But I do often think to myself when eating say crab legs.. "I wonder who the guy was that saw a crab and said, That looks tasty!" ha!

{nine} what is one piece of clothing you can’t live without?
A bra. Yeah, totally need it.

{ten} if you were a character from “lost”, who would you be?
I only watched the first season so I can't remember the names... but I pick the main girl who got to hook up with the really hot guys. Yep!

Wordish Wednesday

I used this picture over on my 365 Project but I like it so much that I'm posting it here.
This is kind of my mood today, too... somber.

Sometimes, no often times, I really think my 2 year old is too smart for her own good. I could brag about how intelligent she is, because let's face it.. she is the smartest 2 year old on the planet, but I won't, I will just simply share some of her favorite cooky words that she has invented. It often leaves me wondering, "What language is that?".

Now, before you read these - keep in mind that she knows how to say the words correctly and DOES say them correctly, but there are times when she just isn't in the mood apparently.

Oh and I was told by her daycare teacher that she loves to make her friends laugh. She obviously gets that from me! {cough} This could be an insight as to why that is!

Gagook - this is Daddy. She says Daddy a lot but on the days she wants to be funny, this is what he is called.

Momeeka - guess what this is. That's right, Mommy. It's really hard not to laugh & be in a good mood at 7am when I hear "Mooomeeeeekaaaa" coming from her room.

Jazzin - this is her big sister, Jaelyn. Who will correct her every single time with "My name is not Jazzin, it's Jaelyn."

La-La-Loopy - this is a doll that my Sister gave her for her birthday. The real name is La-La-Loopsy (perhaps you've seen them?). She's said the name right but she prefers the doll to be "loopy". So be it.

Aunt Well - I'm so sorry, Noel. Really. But it's payback for Aunt Ham!? =) {and it is rather cute, you have to admit!}

Kitty Meow - ok, to her advantage the kitty doesn't really have a name. We've always called him "kitty" but now he is Kitty Meow. He needed a last name, right?

Jess-Ca-Ca - this is for 2 people. Her teacher at daycare {Miss Jessica} and my niece, Jessica. Yes, it gives them character!

Mickey House - she just shortened "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse". I mean, why waste all that time saying the entire thing when you can just say "I wanna watch Mickey House." Makes perfect sense!

I'm sure there are more that I can't think of. I really should start writing them down! She is for sure, her own little comedian.

The funny thing about these is now hubby & I say them as well! They are a little catchy.

Scanvenger Hunt Sunday

A different view:
I caved in this week & bought play-dough sets for the girls. Lucky me, they had such colorful tools that came with them!

Looking up:
Sorry for the poor quality but this is from my phone. It defines my Saturday mornings. =)

I was originally going to use this for looking up as it's the ceiling fan in our living that I see when I do indeed, look up. But, I thought it was rather abstract as well (and I really liked the coffee cup picture).

When you have little girls you have tons of hair bows. Tons!

Ok, I had a hard time with half and I realize I could have cut something in half, etc. but I ran out of time and so I used my imagination... these were the two little "half-pints" at a birthday party we attended yesterday. They were the smallest little ones there but they used their imagination for the Little Gym equipment was no match for them!
