Always. Sometimes. Never.

I saw this on another blog, thought it would be fun to do. Enjoy!

get my hair highlighted/colored every 6wks
wear my seat belt
have Kris tuck me in at night, since I go to bed before him
check the bank account online everyday
have a big smile on my face when I see Jacob
do the same morning routine when getting ready for work

make the bed
attempt to cook
splurge and drink a Dr. Pepper
wish I was tanner
daydream about the future
let Jacob get away with too much
sleep all night through
tire of hearing Jacob laugh
like my handwriting
forget to count my blessings
can find anything in my purse
do my nails

Awww... memories!

We are near the final stretch of packing and moving out. This morning I tackled the bathroom. I came across an item that has got to be about 25yrs old - possibly older. I'm not sure where I got this, maybe a stocking stuffer one year - reminds me of something mother would do. I cannot believe I have held onto it this long. I can't part with it now! It measures 8" long, remember when everyone had a big comb? Just picture me with my Lee jeans on (and rolled up because they were too long) with this in my back pocket. Makes me laugh, good memories!

Jacob's hair is getting long, getting it cut again soon. Made a good mohawk in the tub tonight. :)

I knew it was bound to happen. I think all kids do it, and I am so thankful Jacob did it on a night when Kris was home.

I was cleaning the kitchen and Kris was giving Jacob a bath. He turned to get a towel from the cabinet and Jacob started exclaiming Gross Daddy, Gross over and over and over. When Kris returned, Jacob had left a "present" for Kris - one that floats. :)

Kris got Jacob out (while still shouting GROSS!) and I brought in the clorox. So glad I did not have to clean that up. That would've been so GROSS! :)

Finally, the waiting game is over!!

After an inspection, after reviewing results, after negotiating... our house is SOLD! Thank you Lord!

New Toys!

So if you recall from a previous post, Jacob is currently obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba! So I bought him a set of the characters, and he is in heaven! He immediately took them to the tv while he was watched the show.

Since we have these saved to our DVR, I turned on his favorite episode with Jack Black. Jack does a little dance and Jacob loves to dance along with him. It's so cute! Here he is in action. Makes me laugh every time!

Follow Me

I read a bunch of blogs - some of people I don't even know (you probably do it too). I have been reading them for months now, and it seems like I know them, however, they have no idea who I am. I almost feel like a stalker at times. Oh well... such is the blog world.

Anyway, I've seen the "Followers" button on their sidebar. Some have hundreds of people who read their blog, one lady has over 3000 people (she's very popular). I thought I would add that "Followers" to my sidebar, and when I did, I already had 4 people - HORRAY, made my day! :)

So if you read my blog regularly, let me know by adding yourself to the Followers. Let's see if I can get to 10 - that may be a stretch...

I'll end with a short, cute Jacob story:
This morning Jacob was watching Oswald - a show on the Noggin Network. The little dog sneezed, and Jacob said "Bless You Doggie". So sweet! Have a great weekend!
