Saturday, Sunday, & Monday

Sorry blog world, I have neglected you this weekend.  I have been a little busy, or just slack.

On Saturday I took my Thirty-One stuff to a "Spring Fling" at an Elementary School in our area. Monica went to and put out her Mococreations stuff! It was from 1-5 and freezing cold! You really don't get spring fever when it's freezing cold outside. It was a LONG day. I didn't do very well, but Monica did pretty good (at least one of us did)! I was so ready to come home and see Finn. That was the longest I have ever left Finn during the day. He stayed at home and hung out with Daddy all day so I'm sure he didn't miss Mommy!

Sunday we had some really bad storms come through our area. It lasted forever, storm after storm. I watched the news for 6 hours straight. I think we are in a state of emergency. We had tornados all around us (2 in our county) and a really bad one about 5 miles from our house. There is a video that was taken along the interstate right down the road from us that is all over the news. (I tried to load it on here from YouTube but couldn't get it to work) It is so scary and at the time we didn't even realize it was bad.  We went to the basement 2 different times. They showed a time line of when the rotating clouds would be over us. They were pretty much right on target. Last night they weren't really sure of all the damage but this morning it is horrible. It is a miracle nobody was hurt looking at all the damage. At one point I actually saw clouds rotating in the field in front of our house. Tornados scare me to death! Just say a prayer for those families around us that lost everything. They returned to their homes this morning to find them completely destroyed.

Today Finn and I took a little trip to Target to get some things. On the way home I decided to stop by Arby's and we ate lunch in the car.  First I dropped a container of Ranch dressing all over my back seat. Then, Finn had a massive blow out! Ha! It was all over him! Out of the bottom and up his back. He has been a bit blocked up, so he was making up for it! It got all over my seat and he had to ride home with just a diaper on.  He thought it was the funniest thing ever! I was embarrassed for the people that saw him riding around with no clothes on. I should probably put an extra pair of clothes in the car for future emergency's!
I got Finn a baby pool today and put some balls in it. He LOVES it! He has been sitting in it all afternoon.

Here is one of the ties I ordered. I got this bowtie and 2 regular ties.  I actually like the orange one with dots the best! I ordered them from "The Belle and the Beau" on Etsy for those of you who asked! Jared doesn't like the bowtie at all but I think it's really cute! I am not really a bowtie person either, but it is so cute in person!

Wednesday we are leaving for the beach and I am sooo excited! Jared took off work Thursday and Friday so we could have an extra long weekend. It's supposed to be really warm this weekend so hopefully I can take Finn out on the beach to play!

Finn's First Accident

We'll this morning was very eventful to say the least. We got up as usual and did or normal things. Ate breakfast, watched some cartoons, drank coffee, and then it happened! Ha! Finn was running down the hall ready to go play, tripped and fell  head first right into the corner of a piece of furniture. It made a really loud noise and I just knew he busted his head open! I picked him up and saw that the top of his ear was split open. Yikes! I went into panic mode, called Jared and told him to come home quick. Luckily he works about 5 minutes from our house. I called Mindi and she called and got us an appointment, so we took him right in to see our Pediatrician. He told us that if we wanted it to be perfect and no scar that we should take him to the ENT doctor, or he could glue it and he would possibly have a scar. We went with gluing because he is a little boy, he is going to get hurt, and I'm sure he will have many more accidents! He said that if it were his child he would just glue it. I let Jared make the decision because I tend to over react, and Jared is calmer when it comes to things like that. He glued it really good and I think it will heal up just fine. Jared told me on the way home that I better get used to Finn getting hurt, and not freaking out every time! He is so rough and he tries to climb everything! I think I'm going to have my hands full. He is definitely ALL BOY!

He cried for about 10 minutes and then he was running around like normal! He has a huge knot on his head to that worried me. He said to watch him today and make sure he didn't have any bleeding under the skin.

I took this with my phone so it's not the best picture. You can't really tell that it's spilt open because of the blood.

So now you've seen it. Finn's First little accident! I'm just thankful it wasn't any worse!

Picnic and Park

Yesterday I decided to go have a picnic because it was so nice outside! Where my Mom works there is a little park about 2 seconds away that's really good for small children. Mindi and I took the kids, picked up Mom, got Sonic to eat, and headed over to the park! Finn ate his first cheeseburger and tator tots. This boy loves to eat!

They have this wooden ship there that the kids love, or maybe Mindi and I love it. (We'll tell Jared that the kids love it!) On the back side you can go inside and it has little benches and a ladder that leads to the top. It's so cool! I told Jared about it and showed him this picture. You know what that means, Jared has a new project! Ha! He's thrilled about that.

This was the best picture we could get of all 3 kids. It is difficult getting all 3 kids to sit still and look at the camera!
I'd say they had a pretty good time!

14 Months

Today my little Finn is 14 months! These 14 months have by far been the best months of my life. He brings so much joy to our lives and everyday he does something that touches me. I thank God that I get the chance to stay at home with him! Yesterday I was rocking him and he started rubbing my arm with his cubby little hand and I could have cried sitting there thinking about him growing! I wish he could stay this age forever! He is so sweet!

I ordered Finn this adorable little paisley bowtie that was on the front of BabyTalk Magazine! I can't wait to get it so he can wear it for his Easter pictures. I ended up getting a bowtie and 2 ties! (Let's not tell Jared that!!) They were just so cute and there was a deal if you bought 3! Ha! I'm a sucker for a deal.

That's one of the ties I ordered!

Monday Blahs...

I don't know what's going on with me but I just feel so blah today. Jared's at school and I just feel like laying on the couch, eating junk, drinking some Dt Dr Pepper and watching Dancing with the Stars. That's exactly what I'm going to do! Blah...

Open House!

We had a great turn out for our Open House! I am so mad because we got so busy I didn't get to take pictures of the food or all of us girls having the party. I took some pictures before and some after everyone left.  We had so many people come and they loved everything! I think we were all pooped last night!

Me and Mindi (sister) before the party!

Here are a few of  my bags! I had already taken some down when I remembered to take pictures.

One of Monica's bow racks.

Summer this bow reminds me of you!

I am really luvin' turquoise colored stuff right now! Check out these cute shoes I just got. I also bought a necklace from Monica last night that is the same color!

We are all going outside today because it is going to be 70 here! We might just take a trip to the park today!

Thoughtless Thursday

I thought while I have a few seconds I would go ahead and do "Thoughtless Thursday" from Life in the Fulmer Lane. I am watching Harper this morning so Finn is busy playing with her! The point of Thoughtless Thursday is to post pictures and you can tell about them or not.

These are all pictures from before Finn.

This was an Easter egg hunt at the beach! I think we are going to the beach this Easter to and I can't wait! They do this fun little Easter egg hunt at the park. Sawyer was 2 here.

This was at a little party I had for Jared when he graduated college!

Me with dark hair at a friend's wedding!

This is me and Jared dancing at our reception!

Happy St Patricks Day!

Finn's Aunt Vic got him this cute little shirt!

Finn does this thing where he backs up to your leg and sits on it! It just melts my heart!

So today I received my beautiful earrings from Miss Summer! I love them! They are so cute and I can't wait to wear them! Summer also gave me another award! I am racking up on the awards. Thanks again girly for the award and the earrings!

I might be MIA for a few days because I am going to be busy getting ready for Friday!
Wish us luck!
