Currently...



The DIVERGENT series! I feel like I am a little late to the bandwagon on this one.  I loved it!  I read the first two books in two days and then was all ready to jump into the third and realized it isn't out yet! People told me it is like the Hunger Games....and it is....I think I liked it better but the Hunger Games though, the movie kind of tainted the books for me (Peeta-EW) so I can't be sure.  They are making a movie of Divergent as well (March 2014) and even though the main girl is that chick from Secret Life of an American Teenager (I love all TV, but couldn't stand that show) I will probably still be at a midnight showing or something.
Soda/Pop/Pop/Soda (Canmerica Identity Crisis) Yes I am off Soda Pop!  If you know me, you know that this is no easy feat.  My mom and I decided to try and kick our addiction together.  We are on day three and despite the raging caffeine headaches, we are starting strong. The deal is that we are trying to stay off until Christmas, if she drinks before then she has to give me 50 bucks and vise versa, if we both make it to Christmas, the 50 dollars is ours to spend irresponsibly!  Wish me luck, the hardest parts will be driving past Mcdonalds (best Diet Coke in the country) and when Ben cracks a cold one open right next to me (you know that sound I am talking about!)
Our wedding album....3 years later.  It is our anniversary next week and we decided to finally design and order our wedding album as our gift to each other.  I have spent hours on it during nap time and after Everett goes to bed.  We are using the site Picaboo.  I have used them before, most recently for a book I made documenting my pregnancy and really like them!

Scarves are still in right? I sure hope so because I love this one.  This is the highest rated lipstick like ever, not sure I could pull it off.  On the search for the perfect pair of fall booties, these are a front runner.  I want these adorable moccasins for Everett so bad, I just can't bring myself to spend 60 dollars on them when he will probably only fit in them for a few months.  I have been wanting a gold bar necklace forever (ever since all the Kardashians started wearing them in their Miami season haha)  I want one that says Everett or maybe his birthdate, we'll see, it's on my birthday wishlist.

EVERYTHING!! I love September!! You guys want to know the best kind of problem to have? Having too many shows on one night so your DVR can't record them all. I loved the Parenthood and Good Wife premieres, expected a little better from Grey's, cannot wait for Scandal tonight and am a little weary for Vampire Diaries.  And of course New Girl, Mindy Project and Parks and Rec are as hilarious as ever. Not to mention The Amazing Race, Nashville, Modern Family, Suits, and Revenge....I know....I have a problem, see post here. I did give up Once Upon A Time, Downton Abbey, Glee and Criminal Minds. Priorities right?

SLEEP! I am tired all the time and am sick of it!  I know I should go to bed when Everett goes to bed at 7pm to get my optimum hours, but I also feel like I need that alone time at night after he goes to bed to just unwind and get things done!  I still go to bed by 10 usually but since Everett is still night waking 2-3 times, it is hard to feel well rested when sleep is so broken up and interrupted.  I know I'm a new parent and that is what I signed up for, and I am just feeling sorry for myself right now, I know it could be a lot worse.  The other thing is that I really need is to get back into shape. I was so sick when I was pregnant, then I had E and now it is time! I am feeling pretty weak and pathetic physically. The thing is I don't know if I can work out too hardcore if I am not getting enough sleep, and I can't diet while breastfeeding. How did you mamas do it?  Work out during nap time or have your husband watch them while you went to the gym? Sometimes I do chest presses with Everett as the bar, but that is about as far as we get.

And that's what's going on...
So happy it is fall, mostly for pictures of Everett in a patch of pumpkins, happy conference weekend!

Hey! Do you know Bonnie (Leishman) Fromm? She just started a baby shoe business that you should check out! I don't know prices, but she's selling moccasins that look just like those! It's called Coppermine Creek and the shoes are all pictured on an instagram account @copperminecreek.

After the twins were born I debated the merits of working out even though I was intensely exhausted and sleep deprived. I decided to give working out a go and highly recommend it. I was still sleep deprived, but somehow felt a little more like myself, and my body was certainly stronger. The YMCA by me has childcare, which was another plus - I could get a little break from my millions of children (okay, 4). You may have to drive a bit to find a gym with childcare, but I think it is worth it. Or, find another mom who will switch off with you.

ohh it's sooOOOooo hard to know what to do with breastfeeding/eating and working out with the whole sleep thing/you can't wear your clothes because you don't fit into them! (maybe that was just me?) i was so thrown by it! i honestly don't think i could work out if carter wasn't sleeping through the night. but i think it does reallllyyy help. i kept thinking "i can't work out." but then my midwife lectured me about not working out and so i was like okay! and started doing yoga at home and i felt SO much better. it was uh-mazing. i would literally do 20 min a day and i felt better. then i would have daron watch carter and i would run 1 mile. (1 mile is pathetic for me, but running for 10 minutes gave me a boost!) then as i got stronger and felt like i had the time, my sister (who is a crazy work out guru woman) sent me a schedule that was tailored for me. i told her what was realistic about going to the gym (which was maybe 2 days) and she gave me a ton of short/intense workouts i could do at home that were SO helpful. i don't know what came over me to tell you all of this but i just so relate! haha. it was hard for me. and with eating i had to eliminate all desserts for like 2 weeks :( it was terrible. but i ate TONS of food but it was all sooo healthy. i didn't even mind the extra pregnancy weight that much but i just couldn't fit into my clothes! it was a problem. anyway, that was a lot of information! i want to comment on every post because baby E is just soo cute! good luck!!!
