Catching up!

Late night shopping trip
Last night my friend Traci called me around 5:30 and was asking me what my plans were for the night.....of course I replied the usaul, laundry, picking up the house and washing bottles. (Mean while keep in mind Traci is my friend with the triplets.) The she replied "oh, well, me and Pam (another friend of ours) was thinking to head to Target around 8:00 and maybe Walmart to do some Christmas shopping if your interested in going." Her husband had been volunteered to spend some quality time with the babies so she could regain some sanity and do some Christmas shopping. Afterall, can you imagine having triplets???..... Well, I immediately pretty much turned down the offer because I had so much to do at home and I new it would be impossible to get it all done and then still have enough energy to go.
8:00 rolls around and i'm sitting on the couch getting pumped up to watch Grey's and I started know I should really get out, I need to do some Christmas shopping and a trip to Target is hard to turn down. I decided to go at the last minute and i'm so glad I did! We had the best time. I ended getting Kennedy just a few things.
As it got later you could tell we're getting a little sleepy! I'm really not used to staying out past 10:00 and we didn't get home until 1:00am!
After Target our next stop was Walmart and for some odd reason we ended on the cereal isle. Traci and Pam compared calories and carbs I know for 20 minutes! They went from whole grain cereal to wheat and whatever all that healthy stuff is! Well, if you know me I went straight to the sweet ones. I did end up with some cracklin oat bran! I really like it just not in milk! I can't drink milk or have it with cereal at all. While I was pregnant if ate any diary or drank it came right back up and it scared me for life!!
Breaking in the new house

Wednesday night was our first night having people over in our new house. I cooked tacos and that was the first time I cooked in our new house too! I've been so scared that, that new smell who go away if I fried something or cooked something that stunk! It didn't! I also was afraid that I would be this terrible person that chased people down telling them to use a napkin, take off there shoes, don't touch that, wash your hands and don't take that on the carpet! I should have known better, our friends/family are very respectful and wouldn't do such things! I was being a (LITLLE well maybe A LOT) extreme! We really had a great time and I can't wait to do it again!

All of the little ones! Kennedy, Kate, Emma Rae, Payne and Bennet (he's hidding behind Kennedy)

Hair color change

So every winter I pretty much go all dark and I say every winter i'm never doing it again! I always love it for about a month then i'm sick of it and ready for a change! Well, guess what?? I done it again! I always go to the extreme! I'm a natural dark, dark brunette but it's always a shock for the first couple of days! I'm sorta getting used to it! I'm sure in a few months it will different again! I guess that is the advantage of being a hair stylist.
