Catching Up…

Happy Hump Day, All!


Comfort food on this rainy, miserable day:  Ezekial 4:9 Raisin Toast and some Queen Bee Balance Tea as a mid-morning snack



Sorry about my weird blogging schedule these past couple days. I have a lot of catching up to do in the blogosphere.


For now I need a day off.


My little brother wasn’t able to come over. Munchkin and I were impatient and decided to be ambitious. With that being said I spent ALL day yesterday doing this all by myself:


He wasn’t sure what we got ourselves into at first. It seemed almost impossible:

Once we got started, we were on a roll:

It took me 2 1/2 hours to finish this:

Then my back was screaming at me to stop. So I reclined in my chair for a bit. My mother in law came over around 5 because she was supposed to have dinner out with Michael. I recruited her to help me finish the job. Michael was stuck at work, and wasn’t going to be home in time. We had the accountant coming at 7pm so I had to get it finished by then. Good thing she came because the rest of it was definitely a two person job.


We got it done though!


Not too shabby at 35 weeks pregnant lady, eh?



I’m working on a great recipe that will be posted tomorrow! Something I have been making since high school that I am totally re-vamping! Stay tuned!




Question of the Day:


What are you craving?




RIP, Violet Eyes

    Well done for assembling the crib!! I’m useless at diy, it’s not my thing. I love love the mug, where is it from? I think I’m craving bread, especially a nice scone, have tried to keep off the bread. Hope you get some rest today x

      Thanks, Susan! Yea, I thought I was useless…but I remembered my father was a carpenter so I must have some skills in my blood, lol 😉

      Michael got me that mug for Xmas like 6 years ago because I LOVE Wizard of Oz. I think he got it at a novelty store? Not sure! My fav mug though! Have a great day!

    WOW, well done Laury!! You did a great job. Just be thankful you only have rain… we have a full-on, complete white-out of a snow storm today! I woke up to about 1 foot of snow on my car and we are expecting at least one more throughout the day. Where is spring!?!? Have a great afternoon!

    So sad to see Elizabeth Taylor pass away!
    I totally put together some huge bookshelf when I was like 8 months pregnant. It was HORRIBLE, and took me forever. honestly, I always leave those things up to my husband, but if he procrastinates for toooo long, than MO WILL CONQUER! I gotta say Miss lil cute pregnant lady…your handy dandy skills are TOP TOP. lol
    LOVIN’ the crib! so so so cute. I love the darker cherrywood and the drawers on the side! Mine doesnt have that, but I want. I guess
    And right now I am craving a coconut water, cacao, maca, date, frozen banana, and FRESH MINT smoothie, but out of all of it. Of course. Gotta replenish!

      A book case!!!??? Woah!

      My hubby would have taken 5 days to put it together haha. He’s not extremely handy with that stuff, but we still love him. I felt like it needed to be done THAT day! I am busy all week and my shower is Sunday so Tuesday was the only time…and brother bailed on me 🙁 Got er done though! We both rock at that ish 😉

      Smoothie with fresh mint sounds amazing right now!!

    Wow, you put that together yourself? You go girl!!! Oh sorry and you go Munchkin! I am quite impressed, I always rely on someone else to put stuff together since I am horrible at following directions.

    […] agreed. So we went to best buy and I decided I would replace it myself. I figure if I was able to put a crib together myself at 35 weeks pregnant then I could do this. I’m a rockstar like […]
