Now, I'm just waiting for some announcement about babies so I can make a baby bankey!
(don't tell her I said that)
Like this ridiculously cute pink and brown number!!!!!
Maybe I can just borrow someone else's little girl for a day so I can get my girl fix.

and 30 minutes later:
When I finally did wake them up at 6:30, they were some sweaty boys. Baths were definitely required!
Example 2: Thursday
Really?! When does the momma get to take naps? Oh yeah, NEVER!!!!
What happens at your house while you're gone? I hope it doesn't involve breakable kitchen utensils!

Now I've just gotta figure out how to make this guy into a pattern and make him into something fabric-y.....although since it's a calico beast I should call him, a her!
It's open for anyone that's interested and here's the link to the Charley Harper flickr group to add yours along the way!

Saturday, my parents got my child his first tattoo. At the Tulsa Home and Garden Show (or as my Mom calls it, The Tulsa Homeless Garden Show) nonetheless. Why Grandma Mac thought it would be fun for him to get a tattoo, I dunno.....but either way he got one on his hand, then proceeded to peel part of it off and eat it. uh huh. eat it. Do you know how hard it is to scrub one of those things off?! Thanks Mom!!!!
Sunday, my most cuddly adorable precious little man hit me over the temple with my pink rolling pin. It wasn't on purpose, but the huge goose egg is causing people to look at me funny. I'm really gonna have to get child locks for the kitchen drawers. I'm not even gonna mention who thought it was kinda funny that I got beaned in the head.......just wait Daddy. your time will come.
I love being the Momma! (just not getting hit in the head with rolling pins)
On a super-duper happy note: the winner of my stash of chocolate wonderfulness that I cannot consume is...................IMPULSIVE ADDICT!!!!! Send me your contact info so I can send you the good stuff!

It started out icky Friday morning, when I woke up with blinding pain in my right eye. It was swollen and oozing gunk...it was just nasty. It got better though because after I got home from work, there was a big o' box sitting on my counter with my name on it!!!!
My winnings from Miss Pat!!!!!
Look at how stinkin cute she had this wrapped! I'm not gonna lie, I am a sucker for anything with satin ribbon on it!!!
These is all the fabulous stuff Pat sent me....except for the glass of wine....because Momma needed it bad! Now that adorable framed picture is sitting on my desk at work!
MY Hunter even got a little something out of it!
And, yes, that is one of my hotpads on that little hand! The man is a thief!!!! No drawer is safe anymore! But he sure loved popping the bubble wrap!
Saturday was Jamie and Adam's wedding in Ponca City (which was 2 hours away). I was greatly surprised by Ponca....I thought it was gonna be some piece o' crap town in the middle of nowhere Western Oklahoma....NOT SO!!!!! It was such a cute town! Huge mansions.....awesome little main street (where I found the cutest little fabric store).....beautiful churches....lots of cool stuff like
The Pioneer Woman statue. Kinda random statue off the middle of an intersection by the Marland Mansion (pictures to follow). Cool though. And HUGE!
Jamie was just breathtakingly beautiful, of course.
Of course, I cried like an idiot through the entire thing. Man, you can't take me anywhere!
The reception was in the Marland Mansion and oh.my.gosh was it fabulous! Huge.Huge.Huge.
Here is me, Jamie Lynn and Krystal. Don't judge me......I couldn't take pictures for anything Saturday.....my eye was killin me!
(and standing next to them, I look like the fat girl)
Hence why I'm putting this one in from me in the stairway up to the front door.

See MY Hunter was born to run. He came out of the womb not sitting still. Even my dad made the comment early on that this Hunter Grunter would run before he could walk.....and he wasn't too far off. He ran the entire time we were out there! I was feeling bad that I was missing Zumba class because of THE hunter not feeling good, so apparently MY Hunter felt it was his duty to help me get my cardio for the day!
Are you comin Momma?
After the cardio session, we went back home to take care of Daddy.....who immediately asked for chicken soup, ice water, aspirin, and a back scratching. Love it when men are sick. Got THE hunter his stuff, put a very tired and cranky Boo Boo to bed and watched old episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County until I crawled into bed for the night.
You know when you kinda wake up just enough to realize you have the most perfectly positioned pillows that you swear right then and there you're never moving from that spot? Never getting up to eat, bathe, work.....you're staying there! I had that...I was so comfortable until THE hunter rolled over onto my already-needs-surgery-because-it's jacked-up elbow. Now Momma's awake and in pain.
About a minute after that, I hear a train blowing it's stinkin horn through the entire town. Ugh.
Within minutes of the train, MY Hunter's awake and screaming. Momma's super duper awake now.
I couldn't get back to sleep! I've been awake since 2!!!!!! I need a vacation. bad.
My Jamie's wedding quilt is finished!!!!!! Yay! Just in time for her wedding on Saturday!
I reiterate: I need a vacation!
