Black Friday

My mother has always told me to NEVER go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Well, this year I decided to not heed her advice and I went to the Woodfield mall which is just a few miles from my house to find an outfit for Luke. I couldn't believe what I had to go through!

First, it took me 45 minutes to find a parking spot. It was horrible! People were honking at me and being so mean. Come on folks, it's Christmas time here. Show a little compassion, I was raised in the sticks.

Then, I get into the mall and realized that I really had to pee. I mean, it was like pregnant have to pee. So I go to the middle of the mall and just stand there waiting in line for almost 20 minutes. I was dancing the whole time. The whole reason that it took forever is because there where only 2 stalls! Who plans a mall with only 2 stalls in center court.

So, by the time that I got to actually start shopping I had already been at the mall for 1.5 hours! It was crazy. Don't get me started on how pushy all the people there where. I hope I am not mean whenever I am an old lady.

Anyways, here are some pictures from this week. I have been going picture crazy.

My life has been just a little crazy lately and it is just now that I am getting to sit down and write a post. We are almost moved into our new place and I can't believe how much junk we own! Of course the way that we suddenly moved out of our last apartment made moving rather difficult.

Luke is officially 3 months old now! He has a youtube channel now too! It is I am trying to post one video of him per day. I don't know if I can keep up with it or not but I am going to try.

I will be trying to get my memes going again but I need to have time to do that.

Tackle it Tuesday-moving

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My tackle it Tuesday is pretty big this week! I don't know how I let the room we are staying in at my uncle's house get so bad but it is pretty horrible. Since we have been living out of our suitcase and had to bring all of our clothes over but have no dresser things are getting pretty crazy in the bedroom.

Today I am going to organize all the clothes and neatly pack them into totes or boxes. I am going to get all of Luke's baby stuff packed away too and try to organize his diapers and wipes. Since nothing has a place here it is really hard to do but I need to do it so that when we move on Saturday it will go smoother.

I am embarrassed to show this but here it is.

That is Luke's co-sleeper on the bed if you are wondering. I didn't forget to put it away that's where it actually belongs.

That wasn't as hard as I thought it would be :) Now we are all ready to move.

Baby Shower!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
There's a baby shower at !
So this is my first time doing a baby shower but I think it looks like fun! Here are my entries.

GAME # 1
If you want your 1st pick of the prizes – let us know in your comment or blog party post how long the labor and delivery of your 1st baby took! The quickest labor and delivery will win!

My first delivery was 7 hours. My water broke at 1:30 am and I had delivered by 8:47 am. Nice and short is very sweet :) I only pushed for about 11 minutes if that goes for anything. Also, I didn't even have contractions for the first 2 hours or so. They didn't hit until I got into the car to go to the hospital. As well as that, I would've delivered about 1 hour sooner but I had to wait for the dr to show up. They thought it would take me forever so the dr stayed home in bed until I was fully dilated (which was around 6).

Me about to deliver.

My Hobbies

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I thought that today I would do Thursday Thirteen on things that I do for a hobby/relaxation (yup, I stole it from you Sarah).

1.Play piano- I have been doing this since I was in 2nd grade and I could never not play.

2.Play the violin- Even though I am not great at the violin I love playing.

3.I enjoy all sorts of books

4.Play sports

5.Spend time with my family- this is actually 1 but I don't feel like moving all of them.

6.Hiking in nature

7.Play Final Fintasy XI-this is an online role playing game and it is quite fun to play with my husband.

8.Watch movies- I love them all, except for shoot-em-up movies that is.

9.Listen to music-especially Josh Groban and instrumental music

10.Do things with my church-I am so excited about the cookie exchange coming up :)

11.Shopping-Only if I have money though, it's not very fun when you are broke.

12.Amusement parks-I haven't been to one in awhile and I can't wait to go this next summer.

13.Vacuuming- I know that is sorta odd but I really like to vacuum, especially if I use carpet freshener.

I am sick today and so is my baby. I am not quite sure but I think that we got it from my uncle that we are living with.

Right now I feel like giving in and crying with my little son. It would be so nice to just have a good long cry.

Anyways, that's enough moaning from me. I am going to go take a shower and try to feel human again.

I am on several forums and I always see these cool pictures in the peoples signatures. So last night I asked my hubby to help me make one for myself in Photoshop (he's a graphic designer so he is pretty good at this sorta thing) and here's what I came up with.

I am pretty proud of it because hubby was distracted so I mainly did it all on my own.

I think I am going to make another one today :)

sorry it's a little cropped off. I can't make it any smaller or it won't look right on my siggy.
