It’s Big Boy Bed Day!!

oh me oh my.. it’s big boy bed day!

I have been stressing about this for months. Since the day that the Captain crawled out of his crib, TWICE! And although he has not done it again, it stresses me out every night. I will admit that I realize that there are a whole lot of new stresses that will come with this new bed – but I think in the long run it will be best (oh I hope!!).

So the bed will be delivered today at 4 and when we get home, mommy will make the bed, and make a HUGE deal about sleeping in the big boy bed. There are a couple of books that I came across and wondered if I should buy them.. maybe I will put one on the nook – and start there. I so badly want this transition to go smoothly and him be excited about it. I’m pretty excited about it, although I am not totally sure why!

The Captain is at such a fun age right now. He remembers everything, repeats EVERYTHING, and loves his doggie (he’s sweet, Cole sweet), and outside. It’s so fun to watch him explore. His favorite toy you ask?? A stick. He likes to beat the tree with it. Just one tree. The one on the left – doesn’t pay attention to the other identical trees a foot away to his right..

In other fun news. Some changes are a brewin’.. and I am starting to get real excited. I will fill you in when everything is official. And no.. I am not pregnant!

Also, I am going to start exploring some DIY items featured on Pinterest. I am really interested in the cost comparison and length of time it takes to make some of this stuff. The thing I am having trouble doing is determining how much my time is worth. Meaning I will need to take into account – how much time it takes me to go to the store to purchase the laundry detergent vs. how much time it takes me to make it, plus the cost of everything. Any ideas?

I am going to start with some fun stuff. I really want to try one of the Lemoncello recipes, and the laundry detergent recipes. Is there anything you would like to see me try? I will review everything in detail, and if you suggest one – I will send you a sample!

I am feeling crafty again… more to come!



Girly stuff..

So this weekend while the hubs has been working out of town, I have spent some time watching girly movies, and doing girly things that I wouldn’t normally do when he’s around. So last night I was over the moon happy when I found The Holiday on the tube! Do you know the movie?? It’s the one with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet with Jack Black and Jude Law. I love this flick — it so cute and moves rather quickly — and I love all the actors.. it’s just good.

Tonight! Alex and I started the night off watching Beauty and the Beast – although he tired of it fairly quickly – I loved it. Then after he went to bed I watched You’ve Got Mail 1.5 times – it started again, but I turned to It’s Complicated – and am now watching that.

So, You’ve Got Mail.. I love this movie. By far one of my favorites, I love Kathleen Kelly’s style, and the language in the movie. However, it’s one of those movies that I wish was like 15 minutes longer. You know she had to have so many questions — I don’t doubt they lived happily ever after – as Meg Ryan and Tom Hank’s character always do – and should always.. I don’t know – I’ve watched this movie a thousand times.. but I am always left with wanting more.

Know what I mean?
