P.J's and apple juice...

My exciting New Year's Eve plans include, shower, p.j's, a movie and a nap before the ball drops. That is if Benjamin sleeps. I have fruit, fruit dip, cheese and crackers and drinks ready. Drinks include Sprite mixed with a choice of either apple juice or what ever type of juice it is on the bottle with Elmo. For a last minute party planning, not bad huh? Don'y worry not entertaining guests, just the hubs and me. My mom's side does a big NYE party every year, but when you are 9 days away from giving birth, already have one baby that is no longer sleeping through the get to do what you want for the most part! So p.j's, movie and a nap is in the plans until the ball drops in about 4 hours.

Hope everyone has a safe night and a new year filled with much joy and love.

Miss you blog...

They aren't kidding motherhood is hard, not that I thought it would be a piece of cheesecake! But you know what I mean. Our lil boy is now a year old, how fast the time went by! All the 'firsts' we got to experience with him, wouldn't have missed it for the world! I am so blessed that I have been able to stay home with him! However, that isn't all fun and games all the time...I do work from home. Thankfully he takes awesome naps and I haven't had to stay up too late or wake up in the wee hours of the morning (unless I couldn't sleep) to crank out articles. We are saving on daycare and I'm paying part of the bills, but I may have lost my sanity in the process. Not sure about that yet. I still seem somewhat sane. At least now that my husband is back. With his job he works 12+ hours days M-F and sometimes the entire weekend during the late spring, summer and fall. I'm a concrete widow during that time. So I really enjoy the winter when the concrete industry almost comes to a screeching halt due to the weather. Can't pour concrete when its too cold! Bring on the snow, ice and sub-freezing temps! We actually get to spend time together and he helps with the housework and Benjamin. Huge blessing right now as I am about 3 weeks from having our lil girl and the late pregnancy aches and pains have showed up.

Benjamin's first real experience with snow, wasn't sure at first, but he loves to eat it!

Ok...the spinach and cheese calzones are done and I'm going to freeze them for when our lil girl arrives and I have two babies and articles to write!
