I am a sucker for giveaways and freebies. So I enter a lot of contests and get as many freebies as I can find. I mean why not?? When everything costs so much and I am making very little staying home with the buggers! I stumbled upon the website Mudpies and Mary Janes ... it's got lots of great Mom giveaways to check out so take a look!

Guilty Pleasures

Lets face it being a Mom is great but it's also the hardest damn job I've ever had so I have to find ways to deal with the bad days and as of late my guilty pleasures have been my go to. So we all have them. Guilty pleasures. You know the things you are embarrassed to admit to people even friends that you like or even LOVE. These small things help me get through my not so good days and even make my good days better. Sitting in bed last night with James we stumbled across Jackass which is now playing on another channel in reruns. Which started me thinking about my guilty pleasures. So my list starts with:



  • Blood Hound Gang (totally sexist, raunchy, funny, disgusting music just listen to The Ballad of Chasey Lain on the website)

  • Winter Oreos (seasonal Oreos with extra filling died red ... as if normal Oreos aren't bad enough let's just add LOTS of red dye too!)

  • Twitter (it's like stalking complete strangers ... I just can't explain it)

  • Cars for the Wii (I am totally hooked on driving around Radiator Springs looking for new challenges and buying new paint jobs for all the cars while my son helps me play)

So that's my short list of guilty pleasures right now. So what are some of yours that I should check out??

Confessions of the Day 6

My house is arguably the messiest it's ever been and I just don't care. It's not dirty it's just messy from my daughter's 1st birthday party, out of town guests, and then leaving for a few days for Thanksgiving. In fact there are still party decorations hanging up and the cooler still waiting to be taken back out to the garage and pillows and blankets still in the scrapbooking room waiting to be put away. I could be picking up now while my daughter naps and my son is being entertained by my husband but no I am blogging and am happy to be just sitting here and NOT cleaning.

I forgot to feed my daughter lunch. Yes I deserve Mom of year ... I'm sure this will win me the nomination. She was napping when I fed the little girl I watch and myself. By the time she woke up from her nap it was time to head out to pick up my son from school. When we got back home I was so focused on getting everything (this leads to the next confession just wait) and everyone ready for her 1 year old check up at the doctors that I forgot to give her any lunch. So it suddenly hits me as we are walking into the doctors office that OMG she didn't have lunch! She didn't cry or do anything to let me know she was hungry. I fortunately had milk in a sippy cup and crackers in the diaper bag so she had some food before she went into her appointment.

I forgot about her 1 year old check up until about 11 am this morning when I just happened to check to my calendar. I went searching for her immunization records to take with us because she would be getting more vaccinations. This would be when I forgot to feed her. But of course I could not find the immunizations records and she didn't get lunch.
