Happy Pills

Today I was telling (read: complaining to) some friends about how I have been on my last nerve with my kids these past few days. It has just been one of those weeks, you know? Where your oldest breaks into hysterical tears whenever things don't go her way, and your youngest keeps doing naughty things like painting herself with pudding, coloring on the couch with marker, and taking off her diaper in the middle of the night. On top of that, Mike has been traveling a ton this month (thank goodness it is coming to an end today!) and that always makes things tougher when I am facing it all alone.
Anyway, in our conversation I mentioned that I could use some happy pills today. Jokingly, of course. ;) Well, awhile later there was a knock at my door and my friend was standing there. "Here are some 'happy pills' for you, she said, and then handed me this:

This was the little tag she had on them. My kids destroyed the original packaging in two seconds. Happy!

Ahhhhhhhhh. Thanks friend. I feel better already. :)

Girl's Trip

*If you read my family blog, I have updated it as well.

Last month I was able to sneak away on an awesome girl's overnight trip with some of my friends in the Midwest. It was a MUCH needed break and girl time!

We met in Cincinnati, I had never been before and I LOVED it! Up until it started storming and the tornado warnings came out, haha. Seriously, though, it's beautiful! We stayed by an awesome mall and I had serious mall envy. I have to admit that was one of the hardest things about moving away from a big city to a tiny town- the shopping! We had lunch at Cheesecake Factory, it was so delicious. Oh, how I have missed Cheesecake Factory!!

Anyway, we didn't take a ton of pictures but we did sneak in a few. We went to dinner at the famous Montgomery Inn on the river. They are known for their ribs, so of course I had to get some. They were delicious! We also had their chips and barbecue sauce appetizer, it was SO yummy.

The girls at dinner.

The next morning we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. I had never been to Cracker Barrel and I was amazed at how much food we got. We had to take a picture to document my first time there.

Here is the picture again, with captions of just MY meal. Wow, right?

So basically, we ate a truckload and shopped. It was heavenly! Thanks for the fun weekend, girls!

Fall Steals!

If you are a digi scrapper- which I still consider myself to be, even though it's probably been a year since I have scrapped ANYTHING- you will appreciate these awesome deals at Little Dreamer's today. Some fun holiday kits for $1!!!

These are SOOOOOOOO fun! If you don't subscribe to Little Dreamer's emails, you should. I only get 2 emails a week, and they are always announcing specials and discounts. Love it! I am very picky about my scrapbook supplies, I think there are way too many cheesy ones out there. Sometimes looking at digiscrap supplies makes me ill because of the horrible, graphic-y, clip-art-y, cheesyness out there. Thankfully there are designers out there like Little Dreamer, Scrapartist, and a few others that have awesome stuff!!

Oh my. I have been MIA again. Let me just level with you (and myself) and admit that I am crazy, insane busy this month. September and October are crazy photography months, but on top of that I have had a huge rush of newborns that were due all at once, so I have been squeezing them into my already insane weeks. Therefore, my blogs (well, all except my photography blog) suffer. They suffer a horrible, horrible lack of attention from moi.
I don't feel TOO bad because I don't think I have a lot of readers, but then I check my stats and see that people are still checking in, and, well, that fills my heart with happiness and guilt all at once.
So let's gab a bit about my favorite thing (besides people and my camera):


I am SO excited for Halloween this year! We got out the decorations last week and I have been burning my favorite (discontinued) Toasted Apple Butter brick by Scentsy. YUM. (I don't sell Scentsy by the way. I just really like their stuff.) My girls are super excited to go trick or treating this year, it's all they can talk about!!!
There is just one problem.
I have NO CLUE what their costumes should be! Any helpful ideas would be appreciated. If you are a reader of my family blog, hop over there and see the newest post about it. I am struggling to come up with something that won't take OODLES of my time, but is also unique (I have issues dressing my girls in store bought costumes. I know, I have problems.)
Thanks in advance!
