A Few Things

*If Desperate Housewives ends with all of the ladies in jail I'm going to be one unhappy viewer.  Not that it matters though, seeing as this is the final season. But, I mean, COME ON!  How many people have they killed on this show?  And they're all dwelling over the one that actually deserved it?  Needless to say it's getting on my nerves.
*I made two Pinterest recipes this weekend and both were TO DIE for.  I made the cinnamon applesauce pancakes for Jimmy's birthday breakfast and he said they were the best pancakes he'd ever had {toot toot}.  The second was the oatmeal chocolate peanut butter no-bake bars.  Say that 3 times fast. Now I LOVED them,  as in I've almost eaten the entire 9x13 pan myself, Jimmy on the other hand isn't much of a sweets person and said they were, "too rich", as if.
*Speaking of Pinterest I saw this adorable idea and just knew I had to do it for Jimmy's birthday, from Kendall.
Adorable, right?  Jimmy loves jelly beans too so he thought it was pretty cute. 
*I've talked about my love for coffee creamer several times on this blog.  I think you all thought I was kidding.  Well the proof is in the pudding.

*Kendall got an ADORABLE new winter hat yesterday.  The best part is? She picked it out all on her own.  See how big she's getting?  I had two in my hands and told her to pick, she picked the one I was hoping she'd pick.

*Oh and for the inquiring minds, I did attempt to go back to my roots blonde this week.  My hair is SO dark that it would have been risky to go all blonde right away, unless I was planning on chopping my hair off {which I do not plan on doing, ever}.  So we decided gradual is the way to go this time.  Slowly but surely we'll get back to my golden locks.
*Kendall has been down to just a night time bottle for a couple months now.  I've dreaded taking that bottle away for months.  I had been thinking we'd wait till 18 months, and by we I mean I, that just seemed like the magical age.  But we were at the in-laws Friday night and I forgot a bottle.  So I just gave her a small sippy cup of milk and put her down, she did OK.   So we went with it and continued with this new routine Saturday and Sunday night, she's done great!  She's actually gone down easier the past 3 nights {well the 1st night was a little rough} than she did all week, imagine that!  So we're going to go ahead and say we're done with bottles now.  Wah and YAY, I have mixed feelings about it.

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Here's to a good week!


  1. Susan on DH needs to chill out..she is going to get them all arrested with this new painting of hers!! I'm so frustrated with this season..but of course I can't stop watching!

  2. I thought Desp. housewives would be more excting this season. Its really not :(

    Hopefully it starts to pick back up!

  3. I have 3 creamers in my fridge right now, so I guess you one-upped me :) I def drink more coffee in the cooler months.

  4. First off, I missed DH last night so I'll be having a date with my DVR later to catch up...but I'm SO with you on that...seriously, if it ends that way, I just don't know what I'll do. And don't even get me started that this is really the last season...I refuse to accept it.

    Totallllly making those no-bake bars soon, I saw your tweet about them and drooled over them for a little while. Can't wait!

    What a precious idea for a birthday present...sweet little KP :)

  5. Yay to the hair!! Looks good!! And good for KP for being done with the bottles! That's awesome!! Less work for you to do! Hopefully ours goes as good!! I might try it sooner then the 18m considering she did ok the one night she refused hers. So, we shall see!

  6. I thought the exact same thing after watching Housewives last night!!
