Wordless Wednesday and Thoughts and Prayers

Today I ended up calling off work and having to take my mother to the Emergency room. She was having trouble breathing and chest pain. A little over two weeks ago she was in the hospital for 5 days with the same thing. The doctors have done a whole bunch of tests and really don't have any answers why she gets this way. They just send her home after a few days and she will be doing better. Nothing seems to trigger her flare ups or anything. Fingers crossed they eventually figure it out or it just magically goes away. 
Since my mom is my full time baby sitter, that also meant I had to take Aubriella with me to the hospital. I tried my hardest to amuse her so she wouldn't drive Grandma nuts or get into anything. Aubriella had different plans. She decided she wanted to be the doctor and put on gloves. (Doesn't she look adorable). 
Eventually she decided she wanted to lay down on the bed with Grammy and watch tv, but was so disappointed that Minnie wasn't on. She doesn't realize that not everywhere has access to multiple Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes 24/7. (dvr and dvd's what would we do without them) 

Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery and to get some answers.

When its quite

A mother always knows that something is up when its to quite in the house. In my house it never is quite with two little girls who are screaming toddlers running amuck. Well that is unless no one is home, the girls are sleeping, or they are up to no good. Being up to no good was the case the other night with Aubriella.
One minute she was in the living room with me and we were playing with her little Mermaid doll head, the next minute she was gone and it was quite. After a few minutes I got up and went looking for her. I found her in the kitchen in the spice rack draw. With the evidence in her hand and on her face she was catch red handed eating sprinkles out of the container.

Who knew that she would find the sprinkles, know what they are, and have a love for eating them. Since then they are not put up in the spice cupboard and out of her reach. Hopefully she doesn't try to eat any other spices. 

Did your kids have an obsession with sprinkles ever?

Happy Belated Sweetest Day

Happy Belated Sweetest Day. Yesterday was Sweetest Day. It is a holiday only celebrated in the Midwest United States for those of you unaware you missed a holiday. It is the third Saturday in October. It is very similar to Valentines Day. 

Yesterday when I arrived home from work, sitting on the coffee table as I walk in the door are flowers, a lit candle, and a "I Love You" note from my boyfriend. He can be so sweet. (Ok really he is great 99% of the time, I can't complain)

This year we weren't planning on doing anything for Sweetest Day on Saturday since we had a family birthday party to go to instead. We agreed to have a nice romantic dinner together today, Sunday. Unfortunately that didn't happen either. Brian work up with morning with a really bad sore throat and just feeling miserable. Now it has been rain checked for in a few weeks for a weekend I don't have Aubriella and we can be alone. 
Do you celebrate Sweetest Day?

Five Friday Favorites

This week Five Friday is Fall Favorites.

1~ Pumpkin Everything 
~~~ I'm obsessed with everything pumpkin from candles to cookies to lattes. My favorite is pumpkin munchkins from Dunkin Donuts.

2~ Beautiful Colors of the Leaves
~~~ All the bright colors of fall always put me in s great mood. I just love all the yellows reds and orange colors everywhere.

3~ Halloween Fun
~~ Since having Aubriella I have started to enjoy Halloween more and more. We have started the tradition of going to different pumpkin patchs, doing crafts, boo at the zoo and so much more. So many memories in the making.

4~ Going to Bonfires 
~~~ Growing up I always use to go camping. Since having a job my work schedule doesn't allow for weekends off. But every fall I get invited to atleast one bonfire. The smells bring back so many memories. Plus its always a blast getting together with friends.

5~ Football Season 
~~~ I use to never really be a football fan Brian is a huge sports fan and has opened my eyes to enjoying different things and taught me how the games work. I can now say I am a huge college football fan. Ohio State all the way.

What are your favorite things about Fall?

Fall Colors

One of my favorite things about fall is the change of the leaves. They are gorgeous with their colors and it is always a refreshing smell. Driving around today you can see how the leaves are changing on the tree's. It seems like just yesterday all the tree were bright green. Before you know it the tree's will be all bear and that horrible white stuff will be covering their branches. Must enjoy it while it lasts cause it won't be long.

I can't wait to rake the leaves this year and play in them with the girls. I want to make a scare crow with them also this year.

What is your favorite season? What do you like to do in the fall?
