Welcome inside the randomness that is my brain

: I checked today and Abby's birthday is in 30 days. I asked Siri, she makes finding out things so easy. Ainsley likes to ask her what her favorite color is.
: I have come to the conclusion that black beans are a staple food in our house. I eat them pretty frequently, like once a day.
: I have also been eating the chocolate delight Special K cereal lately. I've always liked eating cereal, Grape Nuts is one of my favs. {Such interesting randomness, huh?}
: I have been getting a lot of headaches lately. It normally takes a nap to get them to go away. I don't do well with headaches.
: We watched Madagascar 3 last night, my kids {who am I kidding, me as well} find this part hysterical and I cannot get it out of my head.
: I heard on the radio yesterday that we are supposed to have a mild Winter, let me tell you how excited I am about that!

: I'm not even remotely prepared for Halloween, we did some minor decorating. I just don't have much in the way of Halloween decorations, Christmas is more than covered. K has made it abundantly clear that I am not to buy any more Christmas decorations, I can't seem to help myself though.

: We got rid of our cable several months ago and have been thrilled to not have it. We have Netflix for the kids, but I don't use it for watching shows for me. I have never been more happy to not have cable than during this election season. I've shared my thoughts on this before, but I'm ready for the snarkiness and name calling to be over. Look, the majority of us already know who we are going to vote for and I'm pretty sure that verbally thrashing someone for thinking differently has never changed minds. Okay, I'm stepping off of that soapbox...again.

: Oh my goodness, did I tell you that I tried a new flavor of cupcake? I don't think I have. It was called an Almond Joy cupcake. White cake with coconut in it, coconut icing drizzled with chocolate and sprinkled with some baked coconut on top. De-lic-ious. Seriously.

: Share some blogs that you have been reading lately, I'm always on the look-out for some more to read.

: The picture above was from our outing on Sunday. Abby was showing me her "spoooooooky shadow" complete with growling noises.

: Okay lovelies, I'm off to figure out what to make for dinner. I really need to start meal planning.


  1. I can't wait to see the new Madagascar. I've heard it's great! And that cupcake sounds delicious. Is that a Billy Vanilly cake? And I hope the headaches get better soon! That's never fun.

  2. Um excuse me - you MUST eat an extra cupcake for me. I was just telling Dave last night how much I love Almond Joys and Mounds. (Almond Joys better because of the milk chocolate. But I don't eat the almonds.)

  3. Almost Joy Cupcakes sound amazing!! I've been missing your cute blog and your girls :) I love Siri too, she's the best!

  4. um, out of all that. All I remember was coconut and cupcake. Now I need to find one. Or 9. Where do you find such deliciousness?
