Hair Color and Aging

You add adult acne to that title and you have all of my least favorite things. I know many women who embrace the beauty that is aging. I on the other hand am throwing a toddler sized fit, a two year old fit to be exact.

I once upon a time had a very pretty strawberry blonde color of hair. Now that I am older I have gone very dark and oily. Calm down folks it is as hot as I am laying it out to be. Anywho last September hubby and I began Dave Ramsey. We have not been A students but it has for sure given us a lot to think about, discuss and learn from. I am not saying we are not following a budget, we are. I am saying we are not as prepared as we should be for the unexpected items and with three kids that list never ends.

Anyhow I have suddenly started graying. Gasp. Say it isn't so (this is my monologue as I look in the mirror).  But it is so and with no budget for a professional to cure the problem I must turn to a box. Only I am not having great luck with boxes. So I am turning to the mighty all knowing blog world and asking.......What do use and/or have you used and what advice do you have for me?

The Baby

No not a new baby, this baby.

Well she no longer looks like this...
or this...

She now has some hair and most people correct me when I call her "the baby".

But like I tell hubby, my favorite thing about baby, is she likes to be a baby as much as I like her to be the baby.

And she still knows how to have a good time at her birthday party.

Let me set this up for you. She had just gotten out of her 3rd bath for the day, all party guest had left, mommy and daddy were cleaning up and apparently we did not clean up quick enough.  Who knew that giant frosting was so oily....and would leave her pink for so long.  She is a busy baby and totally funny!  (minus all of her midnight visits)

And yes, she is naked as much as she appears to be in these photo's.  Too wild for clothes!

What I Have Been Up To.......

........Well aside from being a mom and full time career women I found something else to make things interesting.

That is my leg.  I slipped in some juice and twisted my knee two ways.  I have a more "mobile" brace on now.  They originally thought I tore my ACL and MCL, fortunatley I sprained my knee and chipped the back side of my knee cap.  Which makes me throw up a little thinking about it.  The good news is I believe my recovery time will be much shorter.  Bad news is, I have been in a lot of pain and my attitude stinks. 

You know what you do while lying in bed?  Realize how much you sit around not cleaning your house and realizing just how bad it needs it.  Unfortunatley with three busy kids my time in bed was a little short lived.  That and I feel like I should be able to just bounce back and have things I want to do, so I do them, then I whine.

Anywho, lots of things have changed around these parts.  See those pictures along the right?  Yeah slightly outdated.  I still need to figure out new bloggie names for the kidlets but one got her permit, one started school and one grew out of her bed.

(Sorry about the photo quality.)

I really am hoping to post a lot more frequently.  Thank to all those that gave me such a warm welcome back!  Very excited to get back into blogging.  Talk soon my friends!

Where I Have Been

I can't believe it has been six months since I last blogged!

Blogging is something I have definetly missed.  Not just the act of taking some time out to put thoughts and events in writing but the friendships I made through blogging. Unfortunately with my new job came a new time commitment. It has been hard going from a very flexible schedule to a more stringent one. We are still adjusting as a family but this experience is really showing us the areas in our lives that we need to get more organized and do some things differently.

I hope to share the many projects we have coming up and our trials and errors with organization and just getting back to the blog world. I am also looking forward to journaling more about my kids.  I feel like I have missed some entries in their baby books during this six months!

Looking forward to getting back to the blog world. I will warn you in advance I am blogging from my phone so picture quality and grammer may not be the best.  (not that it was before). So happy Labor Day friends!  Hope to chat soon.

Bacon Baked Goods

I had my first Bacon baked good today.  I have been apprehensive about anything chocolate and bacon.   Which surprises even me that I would turn down anything bacon.   I must say it was/is quite delicious.

What I am unclear about is, is there Bacon on the inside or simply sprinkled on top?  I haven't actually gotten to the sprinkled pieces so maybe I don't really like the chocolate and Bacon thing maybe it is just an exceptional donuts.

What do you think, have you had or made any of these crazy baked goods?
