Have you seen the CRAZY number of blogs giving away Silhouettes?!?!?! I'm commenting all over hoping to win one! (I never win anything though, so I won't get my hopes too high! LOL!)

Seriously though...this is NUMERO UNO on my Christmas List! (Ok...I lie...it's numero dos. Numero uno being the ever elusive engagement ring...LOL!)

O Turkey Day, O Turkey Day...

Why is it that I only make time to post on Tuesdays?!?!? I've GOT to do something about that! SO many recipes to share...a couple projects...my first sewing projects (total flop by the way...LOL!) Seriously...so much to share...I've just got to make the time to share it!

I will work on it...promise.

ANYWHO...it's "Hoo Are You" Tuesday again, friends! Link it up!


1. Name 5 things you are grateful for!
Family (including one sweet surprise, chubby cheeked baby we weren't expecting, but who has taken our family to an awesome new level!!)
Real Friends (which, as I get older I realize are few and far between)
Clients (it's been a good year...working my way towards SAHM...someday!!)
Paychecks (we went awhile without one when I was off work...getting back to paychecks is a good, good thing.)
Diet Coke (is an explanation even necessary? I think not...)

2. What is you favorite dish at Thanksgiving dinner?
Mashed potatoes and gravy...which is silly because we can (and do) have those any time of year...but they're still my fave.

3. Do you have any family traditions for Thanksgiving?
Not really...we just do the same thing every year. Lunch at my grandmas at noon, and dinner with Adam's family when the hunters come in at dark. Well...I take that back. We DO have a tradition...we spend Thanksgiving with family, and then the day after I make an entire turkey dinner at our house and we spend the day with friends! :)

4. Are you staying home or traveling for Thanksgiving?
We stay in town.

5. What else do you do on Thanksgiving day besides eat?
Watch FOOTBALL of course!! And sleep. I definitely intend to nap at some point. :)

And on an unrelated note...bronchitis remedies anyone??? I'm pretty sure I've got it. My chest hurts when I breathe and burns when I cough. Yucky. Any home remedies? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Gracias amigos.

Happy Tuesday...HOO Are You?!?

As usual, linking up my Tuesday at Night Owl Crafting.

1. Do you ever burp out loud in private or public?
NEVER in public...seriously, ever. In private, rarely. I'm not one of those people that can "burp on command" anyway...I don't get how people do that?? LOL! I was, however, quite "burpy" when I was pregnant and I hated it. It made my chest and stomach hurt. So anyway, no, I don't.

2. How often do you get sick each year?
Well, my dad used to "joke" that I should have a wing in the hospital named after me for how often I'm sick. I think he's exaggerating a bit, but I did used to get sick fairly often...and with obscure things like blood poisoning when I was 15, and was hospitalized for a week. Weird. But now, not TOO often I guess. I used to get migraines and THANKFULLY, that's rare these days. I usually get stomach flu once or twice a year, a few good colds, and that's about it.

3. Would you rather paint a room in your house yourself, or have someone else do it for you?
I used to say I'd rather do it myself...but if I could afford to have someone else do it, I would. Not because I hate it, but because I suck at it. LOL!
4. If you get 30 minutes to yourself, what do you do?
I would take a shower. LOL! Most of my showers are five minutes long with Benji in his bouncy seat on the bathroom floor fussing after the first three minutes to be picked up, at least one of the dogs pushing the bathroom door open so the cold air is flooding in, and a screaming and fighting Luc & Mikey coming in AT LEAST four times to "tell" on each other. A half hour long, quiet hot shower sounds just blissful right now. hahaha!

5. Do you allow people to wear shoes in your house?
Yes, and I go through area rugs in my living room like they're going out of style because of it...but I don't have a large entryway with room for people's shoes and I don't like taking my shoes off anyway, so it is what it is.
That's what I got, friends! Head on over to Night Owl Crafting and get to know some more of your fellow bloggers!

Absentee Blogger.

Holy WAH! (As we say in our house.)

I just can't keep up these days. Photography stuff, work, kids, doctor appointments, family things, holidays coming up. WOW. I owe my blog some attention!

It's not that I have lack of content to blog about...I've got WEEKS worth of cookies to catch you up on from Project Cookie Monster. We've got recipes to share (2 in one recipe...baked chicken into chicken quesadillas, meatball sub casserole, homemade veggie soup and more!!) We've got a new couch on the way (YAY) so we'll have a living room makeover to post soon...and FINALLY (yes...really) photos of our bedroom makeover, now that we've been actually using the room instead of sleeping in the living room! LOL! OH...and I have a couple product reviews to share...I'm not being commissioned by the companies or anything. Just some things we've tried recently and I want to share my opinions on.

So much to do...so little time...so it goes.

I'll be back as time allows...until next time...xoxo

Hoooooooo Are you Tuesday?!?!?!?!?

1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
Umm...I think my induced labor with my last son was probably the most painful. (Closely followed by my labor with my first son, Will. The other two in between weren't so unbearable. Oddly...the first and last were at the same hospital...hmmm...) I can tell you that the most painful thing was NOT breaking my foot, and it was NOT kidney stones. (I've heard people say that...yes, they hurt...but it certainly wasn't the most terrible thing ever. Weird.)

And for the record...(not that you asked about pet peeves, but this is a pain related pet peeve so I'm going for it...), I am a migraine sufferer. (During a migraine, I'd probably say THAT was the most physically painful thing I'd ever endured.) It just drives me CRAZY when someone posts "Ugh! I have such a migraine!" as their facebook status...or when someone at work says that while they are typing away. No...if you had a migraine, you could not STAND to look at the brightness of a computer screen. You wouldn't have been able to drive to work! You would NOT be checking your facebook. You'd be in a dark, quiet room hating your life. Sorry...jumping down off my soap box. ANYWHO...next...

2. What would you name your next child or if you don't have any your first child?
Well, I will NOT be having any more children. (Closed up shop, thankyouverymuch!) But if I did, I have a very long list of names I love...far to many to get into here. :)

3. If you could add one feature to your car, what would you choose?
Ooo...so many features to choose from!!! GPS...satellite radio...heated seats...moon roof?!?!?!?! I think, though, that'd I'd go with a DVD player for the boys. :)

4. If you named your house (or car or computer) what would you name it?
House: Frank. My house just looks like a "Frank". I dig it.
Car: Minnie
Computer: I don't HAVE my own computer anymore!! *tear* When I get one though, I shall LOVE her! I think I will call her...ummm...Pearl. (Ha...Minnie Pearl...yes indeed).

5. What is your dream occupation?
Photographer + Stay-at-Home-Momma...some day, some day...

Link it up, friends!
