10 on Tuesday

1. Me and Mya had a little outing this morning to a couple consignment shops and because it was just the two of us, I tried to make it special by listening to the Sesame Street CD in the car and letting her wear her pretty dress and tights.

2. I thought I knew what I was going to be for Halloween but now I'm having second thoughts and can't come up with anything. Any ideas?

3. I'm 20 weeks now and that means half way! yay!

4. I ripped up the carpet on the basement steps yesterday in the hopes of actually starting our new flooring project. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and it just made me want to get the rest of the carpet ripped up.

5. I've had Christmas on the brain lately and I've been making lists trying to come up with ideas for what to get people. Going to the Horton Craft Fair over the weekend didn't help cause all I saw were awesome things that I wanted to buy but for no one in particular.

6. I NEED to call the woman who hems my pants because right now I have 2 pairs of pants I can wear to work because all the others are too long.

7. We are still in a constant battle with Mya over the cat but it's eased up a bit now that she's received a couple good scratches. She hasn't eased up but we have cause at least now we know the cat isn't too stupid to defend itself.

8. Our new goal is to have Mya completely out of diapers including at bedtime by the time the baby is born. Having two kids in diapers sounds awfully not fun.

9. Adam had his first tutoring session last night and he said it went well! Lets just hope things pick up and more kids decide they need tutoring too!

10. I really need to get off my butt and get some butter and icing sugar so I can make a double batch of my pumpkin cookies with browned butter frosting. Why a double batch? Because we scarf one down almost right away and then I can freeze the rest for later in the season of course!

Sew Not Me, But Sew Cute!

Ok, so there's this blog I read. It's mostly a sewing blog and please don't be confused. I don't sew. I can sew...if I have to. But even then it's by hand because I don't own a sewing machine so the results are usually not good and only very basic. I don't take on projects but this blog makes me want to. She always wears the cutest things and always accessorizes so well! Plus, she's pregnant which makes her that much easier to relate to. Think if I email her, she'd make a few things for me?

That is all for today.

Turkey Time!

This weekend is Thanksgiving and that means I get to eat some delicious turkey and bake some delicious desserts. Both things make me happy! Today I'm tackling my pumpkin pies and another batch of cookies so that tomorrow I won't have to worry about it.

We're having Nana and Auntie Elisa here for Thanksgiving. Are you having family over for Thanksgiving at your house? I can't wait for the turkey to get here! Yay!

New Addition

So this weekend we acquired a kitty! A friend of mine found it hanging around her house for the last couple weeks and since it's just a baby and there was no mama to be found, she figured it was a stray. She asked if we wanted her cause otherwise she was just going to end up at the SPCA so we thought we'd take the poor thing in. We think she's around 3 months old or so and she's a pretty good cat for being a stray. We kind of expected her to be a little rough around the edges or skittish around people but she's just the opposite!

She's warmed up to us rather quickly and is surprisingly tolerant of Mya's "love". She doesn't even run when she sees her coming which I was surprised about considering the hard love she got yesterday. She's super friendly and affectionate and loves to be around people and she's so cuddly! We named her Pepper after throwing a lot of names around and that one seems to have stuck and as Mya calls her, "Peppour". We're in the process of trying to teach her to pee and poop outside because I hate litter boxes and I figure it should be easy considering while she was a stray she did everything outside but it's proving difficult. Although, she's only made a couple accidents so far and being pregnant, I didn't have to clean them up (yay!).

So, next time you're over say hello to Pepper and be prepared for some kitty love!
