*Love* vol 3

Today is another installment of things that I Love.  Because I love a lot and I want YOU to know it.  So, here goes.

I *LOVE* that Monkey is finally sleeping in his bed again.  I just didn’t want to see him sleeping like this anymore…

That can’t be comfortable

I am soooooo glad that phase seems to be over!

I *LOVE* when he is actually sleeping and not climbing the walls and trying to give me a heart attack out of fear of him falling. Which lemme tell you is his new favorite past time.  Anything within reach will be climbed.  ANYTHING.

I *LOVE* having a video baby monitor too.  Because it is a requirement for having children if you ask me.  Right up there with diapers and child safety locks.

I *LOVE* that Christmas is a few days away and everything is wrapped and under the tree.  And the Ham is in the fridge ready to be cooked.

I *LOVE* that I don’t have to go out again until AFTER Christmas.  I could stay in my pajamas for the next 5 days if I choose.  I am going to have to ponder that.

I *LOVE* web cams.  This makes it possible for us to share our Christmas with our families in not one, not two, not three, but in FOUR other houses this year.  It makes it a ton of fun and it’s the cheapest airfare! 🙂

I *LOVE* whip cream.  It seems to be my new “must have” on my grocery list each week alongside bread and milk.  I put it on hot tea, hot coffee and hot cocoa.

I *LOVE* my awesome Christmas mug that I found a Target this year and will surely be using it year round.  Even though, no matter how hard I try, I cannot make out what that swirly text at the top is supposed to say.  It looks to me like it says… Money Chicloode???  *shrug*

I *LOVE* my Christmas Decos this year.  This, by far, has been my most proud year.  Everything is just perfect.  IMO.

Even Monkey got his own tree this year!

I *LOVE* that we are finally getting over our colds.  Thanks to a couple humidifiers and some liquid Vicks.  I didn’t even know they had that. Did you?  Cool stuff 🙂

I *LOVE* when Monkey’s playroom is actually CLEAN…

*Gasp*

I *LOVE* that hubby is going to have an extended weekend this weekend.  Yay!!!

.

This last one is a repeat from my very first *LOVE* blog.

I *LOVE* my wedding rings.  And I especially love when someone comments about them.  They are so sparkly and still make me grin from ear to ear.  And even though I say “aww, shucks, thanks” and pretend to brush off the compliment, I am really thinking “oh yeah, you wish you were me right now, don’t you, booya!” *blink*

So in addition… I *LOVE* that everyone requested pictures. Yay!

Please keep in mind that I am NO Molly Yarchin or anything.  She could make these rings look fantastic.  But I, on the other hand, have never photographed a sparkly diamond ring.  More importantly I learned that I SUCK at it.

Ok (she says through gritted teeth) here you go…

God, are my hands REALLY that hairy? I look like a gorilla.  HELLO MAN HANDS! *gag*

Here is a little better angle.

Hope that was all you hoped for. *grin*

I will most likely be MIA until next week.  Hubby is supposed to have some time off and I am going to SOAK it up baby!!  WoooHooo!

What do you love?

Merry Christmas!!!

(or whatever your holiday celebrations may be)

The Story of a Muu Muu and a UPS Dude Dear So and So Letters of Intent

Dear So and So...

Letters of Intent

——————————————–

Dear Self,

Get out of your funk!

Gah!

Me

——————————————–

Dear UPS “Dude” that delivers here EVERYDAY,

So I know that since you are here a lot now, you feel like we have “bonded” or whatever, BUT… please don’t be fooled.  We aren’t friends.  And yes, I realize that I have been in my Muu Muu for three days in a row when you have come by.  BUT, we do NOT have one of those “friendly” relationships where you can say things like “I thought if I came later today you would have had time to get dressed”.

*jaw drop*

Yeah we soooooo don’t have one of those relationships, nnkay?

Even though I appear to live in my jammies, you are coming to MY house, remember?  The place where I sleep?  And wear jammies?  Got it?

Hoping you get a bit more professional,

The lady in the pink muu muu

ps. In my defense, I have actually been in 2 different muu muu’s not just the one.

——————————————–

Dear Furry Ladies,

Love you!  Like A LOT.  I do.  But WTF are you eating outside that makes your breath smell that way?  Whenever either of you come up to me for cuddles and kisses, I have to breath through my mouth for fear I might lose my lunch!

No need to point out that it is my responsibility as your Mommy to brush your little canine teefies.  Time to go to the Doggie Dentist me thinks.

Love you but your mouths are rotten,

Mommy

——————————————–

Dear Starbucks,

I love you.  With.All.My.Heart.

*swoon*

Slowly giving you my kids college tuition,

Daily White Chocolate Mocha Addict

——————————————–

Dear Hubby,

Have fun on yet another of your leaving-me-alone-with-the-house-and-baby-and-furry-friends-to-escape-on-vaca trips this weekend.  Am I the coolest wife ever to let you always take these fun trips while I sit at home alone with like one day off in a year?  You better be nodding your head and saying “SOOOO the coolest wife EVER!” right now.

I better get a frickin t-shit,

The bestest, coolest, most kick ass (seriously) wife on the planet

ps. Hope the Steelers kick some serious Raiders ass on Sunday.  Wave a Terrible Towel for me, since I won’t be there with you.

——————————————–

Dear Christmas Tree,

Oh how I love thee.  Mommy made you into serious perfection.  I love to stare at you and stare some more.  Purrrrrrrrrrty.

Love,

Your AMAZING decorator

about moi…

Hi, my name is Cass. I am married to an amazing man who loves me unconditionally. I’m a stay at home mom to a rockin’ 2 year old boy who I call Monkey. I have an 12 year old step-daughter who lives in another state. We miss her daily. We also have two fur babies, Daisy and Jazz, who keep us on our toes. They are awesome!

I am a complete goofball, a photographer and a constant out loud thinker. I am a grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed Big Mama fumbling through life. Among other things, I battle PCOS causing infertility, Bi Polar, Anxiety and OCD.

Currently I am riding the fertility roller coaster in an attempt to make Monkey #2. This blog is about a little of everything. I hope you enjoy. Read at your own risk!
