Happy Fourth from Mine to Yours!

As us stay at home moms know going out without 
little ones hanging from you is so very rare.

Last night we managed to score a babysitter
(Matt's 19 year old step sister)
and ventured on our way to this adorable 
restaurant, Moonwinks, in our area. 

We had a really good time and it was
honestly nice to just talk and enjoy our
food without trying to keep all kids calm
and hands away from our food so it doesn't
get pulled off the table.

Even though Matt did manage to spill my water in my lap. ;)

But after a super nice night of feeling free
and bringing back some sparks we have lost
over the last three years of course something
had to go even moderately wrong. 

Side note: I can never stay awake in the car 
if i'm not driving especially if it's dark outside.
Matt has grown to accept this and likes
to joke and even ask if I am still awake
2 minutes into a car ride. 

So we get in the car to head home after dinner
and I wake up to the lights of a cop car.
I instantly look over at Matt who said he had 
no clue why he was getting pulled over. 

The cop walks up to the window asking if Matt
had been drinking because he had swerved three times.
At dinner Matt had one beer with his meal but didn't
even finish it and definitely not enough to be intoxicated.
I'm assuming he was zoned out and exhausted. 

With our two year old waking up every night at 2am
crying and two month old waking up for feedings 
neither of us have gotten much sleep.
On top of that Matts been working 13 hour days 
preparing for the new Luckless store to open. 

Matt explained that to the cop and did pass the
sobriety test but it was still all too close for comfort.

I offered to drive since I hadn't had a drink in over a year
not thinking that we were in Matt's old Datsun that 
is stick and has no power steering - lol
I couldn't even reach the petals and ended 
up stalling the car in front of the cop!
I got out laughing and the cop told Matt to just drive home.

Moral of the story: DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE
or simply don't even zone out and drive
Be safe out there this weekend. 

Happy Fourth of July Loves!

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
