Happy or Right which is it??

I use to work for a dentist who was a total idiot. He said stupid stuff all the time and he told lies ALL the time. 

Like the time he tried to convince me that of all the dentist in our area he had been chosen to do a root canal on a tiger. When I asked to see pictures of proof he could not find them. 

Hmmm...guess I just thought you'd frame proof of that and hang it next to the 2 pound trout that is the office centerpiece.???

But he did say 

You can be right OR you can be happy but you can't be both. 

Is this so?   I think it may ha e some truth to it. 


Christmas Cards

Attempts at some Christmas card pictures


Itchy Bitchy

I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed me a topical cream for rosacea.

 It has made my face and neck break out in this weird rash that itches and makes my skin sooo dry.

It feels like I am wearing a prickly sweater all around my face. 

It makes me crazy bitchy.

Ask Justin he knows.

Just like that Thanksgiving is over.  Traveling out of town with two small children is hard on a Momma's nerves and hard on a marriage!

We had a good time with Justin's family ate lots of food and got to be lazy for a few days.  Today it was back to weight watchers.

Justin clearly needs photography lessons.  This is the best picture of the three of us.  He tried twice looked at this one and said yep that one is good.  Really?  My kids are going to wonder why I always looked high and had on sweats...


Happy Thanksgiving

I have so many things that I am thankful for but most of all these three people.  They are wonderful.  I am blessed!


 Since this week is Thanksgiving lets get caught up on Halloween
Prettiest Princess

Marathon Runner that was so fast all the pictures are blurry

This was Addison's costume that I made her, the cosutme that won first prize in the costume contest and the costume that Addi refused to wear on Halloween.
This year was fun we went to the fall carnival at the gym.  Addi won first prize and Easton won third.  We went to the town festival it was alot of standing in line but still fun.  On Halloween night we stayed in our neighborhood and went trick or treating.  Addi had so much fun and Easton played along.  They looked so cute even if it wasn't the costume I had for her.


Sunday night already the weekend went by fast.  Justin was off all weekend long so we took advantage and got some things done!  Saturday I hosted a baby shower for a friend went to Dicks sporting good store and worked on the house.  We are doing some updating/remodeling in the kitchen.

These two babies were glad there were some left over cupcakes!

I started my Christmas shopping this last week...Thanksgiving is this week ??????  C-R-A-Z-Y!  Excited to buy for a little girl AND a litte boy.  Bought elf on a shelf and I hope Addi likes it cause that little elf lady is CREEPY.  Yes we got the girl, Justin thought it should be the boy I thought since I was the one going to the store buying it and I will be the one hiding it I would be the one deciding its gender.  He already got to choose twice :) 


It's Friday!!!

So glad it is Friday so glad Justin is home!  Addi and Janie survived the sleepover. Janie said addi went to bed at midnight!

J went to training about an hour away from mall of America. Last time he went to mall of America he got me a pug keychain. Yes a pug keychain.  In all of the things in mall of America a pug keychain. So this time I was more specific on my surprise. I got a cute sweatsuit from Victorias secret!

I'm doing a baby shower for a friend tomorrow and I have to work on Monday. I'm not use to only two days off!

Happy weekend!


Thursday Thursday

Got to spend the evening with this little Mann.  I don't think it has ever just been the two of us for an evening.  Janie called and asked if she could keep Addi for the night.  Let me think YESSSSS!  Addi said oh thank you mom I have been waiting for a long time for a sleepover!  So glad it is Thursday, I had some annoying patients today the kind that won't open, swallow their own spit or show up to their appointments on time.
Justin comes home tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


When we pulled up to gymnastics the lady in the car was yelling at her daughter for some reason I did not catch...something about telling her 15 times.

When we went inside same lady sat next to me and said to her two-ish looking boy
Would you mind hopping out of my lap for a minute sugar bear... He does it...thank you so much sweet boy 

Dont judge....But it makes me feel better about my parenting when I see the mom that calls her kids sugar bear lose her shit. 

Just saying 


Justin worked on Saturday (24 hours) was home for 4 hours on Sunday then left on a plane and will be back Thursday around 11.

Justin said what are you guys going to do when I am gone I am thinking the bigger question is what in the world are we going to EAT all week?????

But so far we are all still making it just fine. I may not have fixed my hair in two days and Easton is still in his pajamas but we haven't missed a meal!  Being a single parent would suck and I dont want to do it so I am going to be extra nice to Justin when he comes home.

Wish I would have known this was the easy stage
