In my defense, last week was CRAZY BUSY! So here's what's been going on in bullets ;-)

  • Cheer started last week so Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were spent with 8 college students. All day. I'm really excited for what this year is going to bring. Hopefully, no drama. This seems like a good group of kids and I think it's going to be a good year
  • Monday was our last playdate with Katie and Collin. The school year begins around here today, so K is back to teaching. We are going to miss seeing them, but come November we will get to see them more often while she's on maternity leave!
  • B turned 22 months!
  • We went to the fair last Sunday. Pics to come in B's 22 month post. We had a great time and B LOVED all the animals! Her farm themed birthday party is sure to be a hit :)
  • Speaking of her party- Batman is trying to convince our good friend E to talk his parents into letting us have the party at their farm. They have horses, cows, chickens, dogs, cats and I think he said a sheep? It would be AWESOME if we could! 
  • Batman tried to surprise me with a trip to Disneyland for my birthday (yes, it's coming... the big 3-0- YIKES!), but I shot him down. I am kind of bummed that he was getting buyers remorse (before spending the $$) and part of me wishes he would have just gone ahead without asking me. But the other side of me is glad we didn't drop a couple grand. I keep telling myself it's more important to pay off our school loans. Right? RIGHT?
  • We (meaning me) watched this movie over the weekend. It's been on our net.flix instant queue for weeks and I finally sat down for it. And now I think when we get home from the wedding we are going to Reboot!
  • So does anyone have any suggestions on a good juicer? We have a vitamix already and that *would* work, but I'd rather just get a separate juicer. We are looking at a Breville or maybe a Champion. They are 2 very different machines and I'm not sure at this point which we'd be happier with.
  • We may or may not have talked about TTC again. Our original timeline was going to be Januray, but it looks as though we may start sooner than that. =D
  • B has been in her big girl bed for 2 weeks and it's been going AWESOME! She likes sleeping in it  and nap and bedtime are so easy (although bedtime last night was a bit of a struggle). She just climbs right in!
  • Batman unofficially will continue his orders through June! This news came down last week. Yay! :) After that we are looking at taking over the family painting business (we've had our own before, but after joining the military Batman only did it as a side job here and there). I'm kind of nervous about being self employed again, but we'll see how it goes. God is in control, so I don't need to be.
It doesn't sound like that makes for a busy week, but I assure you it does! And now I'm off to go grocery shopping and get this week started! Happy Monday!

No wonder you've been MIA! A b-day at an actual farm would be so fun. You and Batman are doing the responsible thing by not dropping a couple grand on a trip right now. You can take the trip later with both kids =) Fun that the TTC train is leaving the station, GL!!!

Excited for you to TTC again! I'm sure you don't remember me, but I was on the TTCYF board with you and that's how I found your blog originally, I was pretty quiet on those boards too. I've been lurking your blog ever since and waiting for you to try for #2. I got my BFP a few weeks before you and my son was Born Sept. 24th. We are TTC again too! Although we did actually concieve #2 in November but lost the little girl in February (my entire story is on my blog). Looking forward to seeing you around the boards again! If you chart, post a link so I can "friend" you. Okay, I'm way to obsessed with the whole TTC business so without sounding crazy, I'm leaving now! Xo.

Sounds like you have a great new group of girls this year. Hopefully the cheer season is a lot of fun for everyone.

And I totally wish you were coming down to Disneyland as I live 30 minutes from there. Would've loved to meet up!

Happy 22 months, Brynna!

My oh my! Busy around your house! Can't wait to read B's 22mo update & (hint, hint) hopefully hear about how you transitioned her to the big girl bed. Will goes in willingly but as of tonight he likes to climb out of it too!

And YAY for TTC again soon! I'm so excited for you guys!

As far as the b-day Disney thing...I'm pretty conservative financially - LOVE Dave Ramsey - and so I would have shot DH down too even though I know how much you love going. Happy upcoming birthday!

Yay to TTC again, hope it happens quickly!

Can't wait to hear what you do with B's birthday party!

Yay for TTC again!! How fun :) You're definitely excused for being MIA. ;)

If you haven't picked out a juicer yet, I'd like to throw in a suggestion for the Jack LaLane: :)
