Happy Halloween!


I can hardly believe that it's Halloween! This time last year I was sportin' some wicked morning sickness and I remember throwing up right before I took Grammy trick or treating!

Now I have a chili pepper and batman that I'm going to take out tomorrow to collect treats!!

My little pill.

I miss taking my weight loss pills!

They really were the magic ingredient to my massive weight loss before I got pregnant. Now you can look online for an alli review and decide if it's a good option.

Once I stop nursing I will more than likely get back on weight loss meds so that I can drop these unwanted pounds.

SLEEP.

I'm in need of some serious sleep. Last night was brutal and Emmy was on the boob constantly.

She gets so upset if she turns and god forbid there's not a nipple in her mouth!

I love it when she goes to bed in her crib because she sleeps so much better at night.

SO DO I!

We need to get away!

We've been talking about a vacation and right now we're still undecided on a location. All we can agree on is that we want a sunny beach destination!

Of course, we could look at Brazil vacation packages and get everything included in one price.

Once you start working on travel arrangements for FOUR people ... things get a little bit harder!

Snow?

I just turned on the television to find out that we're scheduled to get SNOW SHOWERS this Tuesday.

WTF?

It seems like it's way too early for this!

We chose the wrong one...

When I was pregnant we decided to get the Phil and Ted's stroller. We liked the color green which it was offered in and our friend who had one said it was perfect for two kids.

A few days ago I saw a Bob stroller and I must admit...I WANT IT!

It looks like it's made better, the colors were cool, and the brake looked easy to use. (Unlike the P&T!)

Maybe I'll post the P&T on craigslist and see if I get any hits and then go out and buy the BoB!

UN Day at Grammy's school.

While I appreciate all of the great things that are going on at Grammy's school I must admit that UN day has really put us to the test!

We are on the search for "Chinese" garb and of course Ithaca has NOTHING! So we've actually asked Margot's brother to look in NYC for something.

Thank God they were able to find something and now we're just wondering if Graem should wear her Chinese outfit with cowboy boots to represent her 1/2 whitie descent!

We'll never get lost again?

That's what I thought would happen when we bought our GPS! However, there have been a few times when the GPS doesn't recognize where we are and ends up taking us in circles!

When we were in Philly it couldn't detect satelite through the big buildings and kept telling to turn left, and left, and left!!!

Snack!

It's our week to do snack at school and I must admit I'm a little stressed out! They have all these do's and don'ts about what you can and can't bring. Of course there's no peanut butter.

We're running out in a few minutes to Wegmans to pick up goodies and I just hope that this doesn't break the bank and cost us an arm and a leg!

Something special.

I've already started looking for Christmas gifts for the kids. I was able to pick Emmy up some toys the other day at Target.

We have Graem one big toy already and we're more than likely going to have to buy her a few more.

I think it'd be really cool if I could get the kids some personalized books. Both kids love books and they'd love to see their names in print!

4 1/2 months already.

I seriously can't believe how damn big little Emmy is getting. Each day seems to be flying by too fast. I see a newborn and I'm shocked at how big she is!

Last night was our first real night of peaceful sleep and she slept from 8pm to 6am this morning!

What a mess...

I'm talking about the economy.

Every day we think that it can't get much worse....and of course, it does.

Our friend, L, calls us with a daily update and then we talk about what we're going to do. We've been talking about futures trading and we're still trying to figure out exactly what they are and when would be a good time to purchase.

I still think that the stock market has a little bit lower to go before we might invest and I heard the other day that it could go as low as 7,000.

Yikes.

Leaky all over.

This time I'm not talking about our leaky baby! I'm talking about kitchen faucets!

Our kitchen is in desperate need of renovation. The countertops are speckled and the painted cabinents have seen better days. They only thing we've really done to the kitchen is laminate do-it-yourself tiles and installed a new faucet.

It all takes money and time!

Two things that we just don't have.
