So, I am sitting at home tonight by myself, well technically not completely alone, Crewe is asleep and Sophie is dosing on the floor. Alone in the sense that John flew to Wisconsin today for an interview. Not just any interview, but a life changing interview. Fingers and toes are crossed because tomorrow is the big day we find out if he gets it. Prayers accepted :) I am beyond proud of him!

I believe his comment to Crewe in the photo was, "Crewe come over here so I don't have to get up and parent." NICE!

 Professional and all, but never too cool to drink out of the waterhose with a dog. LOVE HIM!

As soon as we dropped him of at the airport today it occurred to me that this will be the first time I have spent the night alone since becoming a momma and that happened 19 months ago.

Ok, Ok so onto the to revelations..... these are not the type of revelations, like I have decided to not have more children or I don't like our house so we need to look for another, but the fact that it occurred to me tonight that when I find something I like, whether it be a hairstyle, spray paint, decorating style, etc.... I latch onto it.

Case in point, this hair do:

30 weeks pregnant in this one, but as you can see, pic a picture folder on my computer and chances are my hair is fixed like this.
LOVED this hairdo and deep down in my heart I still do UNTIL I read an article making fun of Snooki for always sporting my favorite do and then ANOTHER article I read was all about what guys don't find attractive on women and yep you guessed it, MY hairstyle was on the top of the list. My husband still swears he loves it on me. ;) Is that what good husbands are supposed to say?

Case in point #2- This spray paint:

 You can tranform anything that you want with this stuff. It comes in a variety of colors and transform the product to look just like you bought it that way. Now I want to spray paint ANYTHING in our home that has a frame around it. I mean really the possibilities are endless. Buy something on clearlance that isnt perfect but will work? spray paint it. Old hardware on your cabinets? Spray paint it. Don't like your hair color? Spray  paint it. Seriously is is so worth the 6 buckaroos.

Case in point #3- This clothing style:
2 words: Yoga pants

You get the picture! I like comfy clothes.

Its like I can't just handle it in small doses but I want to cram it into every wall, ceiling, floor, daily routine.... well you see where I am going. I think this is a break through for me that it is ok to like something, but that in no way means you have to become obbessed with it. Almost like if you have it in small doses you don't get tired of it and then you don't have to spend a small fortune redecorating you whole home becuase you are so over it (ask my husband).

I still swear it's a disorder, something like:  "Can't handle in moderationalism" (hint: read it quick and as one word)

Do any of you have this disorder?


  1. How cute! I love this post! :) I'm a new follower over here from Casey's blog. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I know what you mean, I'm kinda the same way. If I like something, I tend to become a little obsessed with it as well. :-)

  3. You know I'm agreeing with you! :)

    Good luck to John... Let me know what happens!! :)

  4. I'm the same way. I've worn my hair the same way pretty much my whole life. Down and straight or ponytail. This may also be because I have no hairstyling talent whatsoever. Also if I find a shirt I like, I buy it in every color they have it in that I like. Seriously. My closet has very little variety. It's sad.
