My crazy life

Ok, so I'm sure that those of you who have children or who have been around children will understand this....

I think you lose brain cells when you become a mom. Heck, I think the more you have the more you lose. I used to think I was reasonably intelligent. No more. My brain is mush. I have a hard time forming sentences. Ugh. I hardly read anymore, except for Dr. Suess books.

One of my favorite ways to unwind now is to lay in my bed and actually watch a whole episode of "Law & Order" without interruption! =)

I have 5 children and I do insane things like let 2 of the 5 have sleepovers...on the same night!!! What am I thinking?! Am I crazy?! Probably.

I guess it could be worse. I could be single, fit, read lots of "smart" books with intelligent titles....I could watch a Law & Order marathon whenever I want....but, I wouldn't have my babies. I wouldn't have my 4 year old tell me every day that I am the best mommy and she loves me the mostest! Sigh.

I guess I'd rather have a brain of mush, than not have my babies. I'd rather have put on that 5 lbs from too much movies and popcorn on our family movie nights. And, I think Eric Carle books are rather intelligent....Now, I'm off to catch up on some Wonder Pets episodes..... =)

A few of my favorites...

It's funny, I just bought this purse. I had it on my favorites list on Etsy and I was scared to share it on Pinterest for fear that someone would see it and buy it before I could!

I LOVE this bracelet!

Maybe I'll share these on Pinterst. ;) Hey, I have to show off my awesome taste, right?!

Good Morning!

Ok, so I'm one of those people who are late on discovering the new "it" website. I got a Myspace account after everybody else did. I got a facebook account after everyone else. Blogging, yes, late. I have yet to do Twitter....I refuse (at least for now), but Pinterest, now that's another story. I kinda discovered it late. I had heard all of my friends talk about how great it was, how addicting, so I figured I'd not be a part of this....this Pinterst thing. But, my curiosity got the best of me..........

This website is so freakin' cool!! Why didn't I think of it?? I mean, I'm one of those people who have a corkboard over my desk and pinned to it is (gasp!) my favorite pictures, newspaper clippings, postcards, cards, fortunes from fortune cookies, a picture of a zombie with a lollipop drawn by my treasures. So, now, I can show the world what great taste I have via a website.... ;)

The Mustache

So, I know that mustaches are very popular now and, although I'm not a huge fan, some guys can really pull it off....I thought it would be fun to feature some of my faves. Please comment if you like. =)

Now, I do have to mention my inspiration. My husband grows a beard (with mustache) every winter. It grows in nicely, but the mustache isn't too terribly thick...but not sparse ala Joe Dirt (hehe) ...anyway, we took the kids out to dinner and the manager there had a very enviable, thick mustache. It looked as if it would be a handlebar soon. It was so great that even Sam Elliot would approve.

Ok, so let me find some pics to post here....let's have fun with this shall we???

There were so many to choose from! This was really hard...there are blogs dedicated to mustaches...there are mustache clubs....oh well, I had some fun with it. =)

P.S. I think the boxer guy is pretty hot...yes, mustache and all. I just love the commercials.
