Friday the 13th Edition

Happy Friday the 13th!!

I've never thought of Friday the 13th as *bad*.  Probably because my brother was born on Friday the 13th, and having a brother isn't so bad!  Haha.

1.

First up - our new toothbrushes!
A few weeks ago we stood in the aisle at Target and picked our new toothbrushes.  I mentioned that I wanted an electric toothbrush for Christmas and Justin echoed my sentiment.

A few hours of research later and I KEPT stumbling across Quip.
What intrigued me the most was the 3 month refill program.  A new head AND battery every three months?  Yes please!

Doesn't help that the design is beautiful. :)

My first Ipsy bag arrive and I LOVE it!!
I tried one of my face masks last night.

Family Pictures

We had a mini session Saturday morning and we lucked out BIG time with the weather.  It snowed that afternoon.
We used LC Photography.  She was AMAZING!  I can't wait to take more photos with her!
Now I just have to choose.....





Check out LC Photography if you're in the area!!

#wiggydiggy | 34 months!!








Watching you grow up before our eyes is such a joy and absolutely heartbreaking.

We love you #wiggydiggy!!!

How are you going to be 3 in two months?!

You are SO tall.  Over 34" (I really should measure you soon....) and still thin.  You are wearing 3T tops and 2T jeans.  Some sweatpants are 3T if they have a drawstring waist ;)
Your dad and I laugh at your feet.  You were born with such long feet that seemed to have forgotten how to grow!  Currently in size 7 shoes.

100% potty trained (day and night) and 100% Mr. Independent.  You love your new school and your independence has more than doubled since starting.  You like to clean up after your eat and pick up your toys without us asking (?!?!?!) and you are even using your manners without us prompting!

However, you do scream pretty loud when you aren't getting your way.  We do need to work with you more on using your words vs. hitting when you get angry.  #terribletwos

You tell the most detailed stories about your day at dinner time.  Your dad and I LOVE when you wake up in the morning.  You first demand your applesauce pouch and then you sing us songs.  ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle, Ba Ba Black Sheep, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and so on.

I hope you stay our happy and bright boy for the rest of your life.  We love you so much.

5 on Friday

Where did this week go?  Holy buckets.  I feel like I'm stuck a few days behind trying to play catch up.

1.
Our little family headed to Red Lodge/Billings area last weekend.  Our big plans of welcoming fall by driving over the Beartooth Pass were squashed......by snow.





Little boy LOVED our view from the 17th floor.  He spotted every 'Bambulance" and "Fire Fighter' truck that drove by.


2.
The Billings Zoo

I was pleasently surprised by the zoo!  #wiggydiggy loved seeing all of the big animals and the petting zoo.

Also, the playground was a huge hit.  He ran out all of his energy before getting back in the car - 
2 hour car nap for the win!




3.
I did it.  I hired a monthly Cleaning Service.

On Father's Day, #wiggydiggy and I hired out some of the big yard work projects and a weekly mower.  It was such a great investment in our family and extremely affordable.  

With winter coming, I thought it would be a great time to have a good deep clean of the house (all of the projects have kept us in a serious layer of dust......that NEVER GOES AWAY no matter how many times I dust).

I don't regret hiring Jessica for one minute.  Our house has never looked so clean and I have been able to spend more time playing with #wiggyidggy in the evenings vs scrubbing floors!

4.
I'm in desperate need of  hair cut and my gal is on maternity leave.
I'm trying a new place next week, now I just need to find a cut I like!
Current Contenders



I'm loving the long layers with focus around the face.  Maybe I'll go for a color too.....

5.

The last window gets installed next week!  Hallelujah!!
Then we can focus on trimming out the remaining windows!
We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Hallelujah!!
