Sorry about that! Here's the link which hopefully works? If not just search bathtub cleaner on pinterest and it should come up.

Why does everyone not know about this?

I've been trying to get videos and slide shows to upload to blogger all this week (stuff from our seattle trip and from Home since then) but to no avail. I think it's time I ask batman for help.

In the meantime, this week I realized that many weekly chores have been sorely overlooked (as in I've been a lazy mamma and haven't done them. Instead we've been enjoying all the glorious summer weather).

For example our master bathroom shower. It's been wiped down but not seriously cleaned like it needed.

And since I've been seeing this cleaner recipe floating around pinterest for the last few weeks I figured I'd give it a shot? And now I kinda wish I had taken before and after photos.

O. M. G. Y'all my shower hasn't been this clean in at least a decade (and we've only lived here 8 yrs...) the only tedious part was getting it all rinsed off and to be honest if I had only let it sit an hour or 2 instead of like 5 (today was library day... We do have some priorities here) I think it would have been much easier. There was seriously NO work involved. Just spray it on. Leave it alone for a while. Wipe it off.

Easy peasy.

You must try it if you have any soap scum or hard water stains.

I promise we do have more blog worthy posts coming... This just made my day today. ;)

Happy hump day!!

Chalk another one up to pregnancy brain?

I forgot to wear underwear today.

Who does that!? I mean I've gone the occasional commando on purpose before, but on accident? Really!?

Who seriously FORGETS underwear!?

And unfortunately I'm at the dentist for another hour and a half so no chance of rushing home to rectify the situation. And I just realized i forgot. Now. At 1pm.

If this is any indication how the next couple months are going to go, just shoot me now before anyone gets hurt.

Officially a big girl

Or so she thinks... I'm just waiting on her to be completely potty trained lol.
But tonight we picked up her new "big girl" bed that she'll move into in the next few weeks/month. She's super excited about getting to climb a ladder every day! And she's already figured out a good hiding spot ;)

Now just imagine that it's white and not stained wood. Whew! We've got some work to do!

28 weeks!

I'm finally sitting down to do a #2 update. I'm only like 4 weeks behind...which means I'm skipping over weeks 24 and 26 (since I didn't take any belly picks anyway) and moving right along.

So here goes:

Belly #2
Belly #1
Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 28 weeks

Size of baby: Baby #2 is about  14.8 in long (about the size of a chinese cabbage) and weighs about 2.25lbs.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: No idea at this point... I've kind of avoided getting on my home scale since we came home from Seattle. Just looking at pics of myself makes me realize I've gained more weight than I want (or should), so I figure at my appt on Monday I'll peek at the scale and have a wake up call.

Clothes: All maternity of course. And for those of you that helped me out with suggestions on FB, I did find a swim suit at Macy's :)

Gender: All boy... who still remains nameless

Movement: All the time, which I'm loving! He does acrobats in the early mornings and late nights, which kind of scares me for when he's out... I have a feeling there will be a lot of sleepless nights in our future (obviously, I'm talking more than normal)

Sleep: It takes either half a unisom or 2 benadryl

What I miss: Breathing normally... I've been having serious allergy issues lately and it's exhausting not to be able to breathe! I also miss my skinny clothes... someday they'll fit again!

Cravings: None I can think of

Symptoms: I've had a couple bouts of heartburn lately, but nothing like I had with B. I've also been woken up 2 nights with leg cramps, but nothing too major

Moment this week: Watching my belly move all over the place on a quiet morning that Brynna decided to sleep in... until 8:30! It was such a delicious, sweet morning!

What I'm looking forward to: September!

Milestones: Waiting on my GD test on Monday... wish me luck? I don't think I have GD, but who ever really thinks they do, right?

Until next time...

Such a sad day :(

If you could all keep some mommy friends in your prayers please? These are both old IV friends that moved over to fb and I'm just heartbroken for then both :( K lost her husband a few hours ago (complications in the hospital) and L just found out baby-to-be no longer has a hb :( I'll try and get on the computer later so I can link to their blogs. (And I know some of you know them too.)
Please say an extra prayer or two for them today.

It's been a while

Well hello there internet friends! Haven't seen you in a while...

Seattle ended up being 10 days of on-th-go, no-time-for-blogging, one adventure after another. And once we got home we packed up again and headed to Twin Falls to visit Batman's brother and his family- they are moving to Cali this weekend- please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they move! Oy!

We had such a fun and fabulous time at both places and miss everyone already, but it's nice to be home in our own beds finally. Now it's just getting back into our normal routine... too bad this week is already shaping up to be a busy one with our CSA farm pick up starting (SO excited about all the organic, fresh produce we are getting!), library, grocery shopping, softball games, and a parade on Friday night. Whew!

I have plenty to update too! Lots of pictures from our visit (although most of them are from our day at the zoo... which in my completely humble, and unbiased (of course) opinion, is one of the BEST there is) and of course a WAY, WAY overdue preggo/ baby update.

Hopefully, I can get all these up over the next few days and get back in blogging mode ;-) I've missed ya'll!
