Monday Night Randomness

I am in a random mood.
Kevin is at youth group & I am watching The Bachelor and having a (much needed) glass of wine.
It has started to rain (again).
Here is some Monday Night Randomness for you:
Kate would eat chocolate chip z-bars (or pancakes) for every meal if we let her.
I have almost finished my semi-annual closet clean out.
These hangers are now empty:
I LOVE cleaning out stuff. LOVE it. Bye-bye clutter.
Here is our stash that we are have for Goodwill.
Here is my Magazine stash that I just threw in the recycle bin.....
People, Parenting, Parents, Rachael Ray, Family Fun Magazine.
This was the stack that I have had since September that I HAVEN'T read! I kept piling them up and it was stressing me out. So, I recycled them all & it felt so good. Let's just say I WON'T be renewing my subscriptions when they come up.

In the past week, I have created a bunch of new designs for my Etsy shop.
Here are two of my favorites:
I will be adding more in the next few weeks once I have the time to sit down & work on them!

Last week, Julie sent Kate this outfit for her birthday, isn't it cute?!? Thank you, Julie! I can't wait for the weather to warm up & stop raining so she can wear it!
Last week was also Doppelganger week on Facebook. Doppelganger means your celebrity look alike. I don't have a celebrity look alike. But my husband does!
Kevin = Kurt Warner
(picture from google images)

Please tell me you agree with me that they look alike!

Check out Claire's hair. It has so much body, I think it is going to be curly.
What do you think? I am not used to this, I have stick straight boring hair.
Claire got her first cold, not too bad for 17 months. It is just a runny nose, but since it is her first ever, I will officially say this is her first time getting sick.
Yesterday was my younger sister Rebecca's 26th birthday.
We had a Superbowl/Birthday party for her at my parents yesterday it was fun! I was the only one there who was rooting for the Saint!
Speaking of Rebecca, she started a blog on New Year's Day called The Beck Beat.
She will be blogging about her 30 things before 30 list. You can read about all the fun things she does! I will be living vicariously through her fun adventures!
Which reminds me I want to make a 35 things before 35 list. (oh wow, that sounds old!!)
At the Superbowl party, we did a point grid & randomly picked boxes to put our initials in. Either Kevin or I won each Quarter. And, the most bizzare thing about it was whenever the score changed, it landed on me or Kevin. What are the chances?!? We should have gone to Vegas!
Anyone want our lab?
She puked 2 times this past week. All over my carpet.
She is free to a good home ;)
My heart is very heavy for one of my dear friends.
If you are someone who prays, please pray for her.
I took this picture of the clouds today as I was praying for her.
In the midst of darkness & despair, there is light & hope.
Kate has been resistant to nap, but still needs one.
She had "room time" for the past 2 days.
This is how I found her:
The evidence tells me she isn't quite ready to give up her nap!


  1. That was just about anything and everything in one post! Love the invites, super cute. Had me laughing about Kevin and his doppleganger. Yes, I definitely see the resemblance...totally in the smile. Am praying along with you and for her, my heart too, is heavy. Am hopeful that her day will come.

  2. I always thought your husband looked familiar in your pictures and I guess it is because he does look like Kurt Warner! How funny! And I love the pictures of Kate falling asleep in random places!

  3. Hi, I can't remember if I have left a comment on your blog yet, but I love it! I think your husband found his long lost twin for sure! The invitations are adorable, I am loving all things owls right now!

  4. where do you get your girls clothes? they are always so cute!

  5. that was an absolutely sandom post...maybe the most random random post i've ever seen!!!

    i love how Kate *thinks* she doesn't need a nap but still falls asleep. so cute!

  6. Sorry about your friend..praying for her and for you..
    Such cute pictures of Kate! My 3yo thinks the same thing, he doesn't make more than one day without a nap!
    Btw, I got all the ingredients to make the cupcakes w/ the choc. chip cookie dough in them. I tryed the frosting on the powdered sugar box for the cupcakes that we made last week, and it was DELICIOUS!!! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Have a great day!

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog. How on earth have I missed seeing yours out there until now? You just cleaned out all the same magazines that I did. And yes, Harper was also born on 9.9.08. Too funny!
    I love the invites too. I am on Etsy all the time and would probably spend all my hubby's paycheck buying things if I could!
    I've got you in my reader now so... as Arnold would say... I'LL BE BACK. (But not in a creepy way, ok?) ;)

  8. I LOVE cleaning stuff too. And organizing. I think we might be long lost fraternal twins. Haha :)

    Praying for your friend. And what a gorgeous picture.

    Can't wait to check out your 35 before 35 list!

    Kate's "room time" pictures are hecka funny.

  9. What a great random list! I loved it! I actually got Allikaye's dress for her daddy ball at Sam's Club 9like Costco)!! It does look like your daughter's! So pretty!
    Oh - and I did a clean out of the closets yesterday too...feels so good!! :0)

    Praying for your friend.
