Love/Hate Link up

I'm linking up with Noel at Noel's Beautiful Life in her first Love/Hate link up.

I LOVE my kids more than life.

But I HATE the messes they make and their non listening skills.

I LOVE Disneyland.

But I HATE the drive home from Disneyland.

I LOVE my friends.

I HATE how much effort it takes to see them or connect with them sometimes.

I LOVE my sweet pup, Lucy.

I HATE HATE HATE how her age/health is getting in the way of her living.

Want to join this love-hate link up?! You will love it, I promise. Click here.

To my girls

On Mother's Day weekend.. I celebrate my wonderful mom and my girls, and my husband who made me a momma!

My girls shape me into a better person daily and have shown me what true, unconditional love is.

My mom is the best. She has always been there, prepared me for what to expect during each milestone of my life (moving out, becoming a wife and a mom), and always has the "yes, that's normal" response when I think I'm doing something wrong as a mom. I'm not sure where I would be here in this mommyhood world without her.

And my husband too! For making me a mommy and for always being the voice of reason in the most perfect, gentlest way... When I need a break or when I question myself.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Letter to My Pets Link up (May)

I have this formatted nicely in the Blogger app, and I can't figure out how to fix it. My apologies. I recently found a great new blog, Noel's Beautiful Life, and she's hosting her first ever link up, Letters to My Pet(s). I'm joining, won't you! LETTER TO MY PETS Dear Sabath/Sabby/Kitty: Oh please cat, please stop staying out all night and then whining at the back door at 5 a.m. wanting in. I stayed in last night and was up with the girls having to pee or being afraid of the dark. Won't you?! And then being annoyed when your sisters (Ava and Emma) want to play with you during the day...when you want to nap. You party all night... You still gotta do your daily chores! Love your fur momma, Amory Dear sweet, sweet Lucy (black lab), I love you puppy. But your fur is getting out of control. Maybe you can use that tail of yours to help sweep it up?! And during water play outside....starring at me.....panting..... You need to run through the sprinklers rather than dodging them. YOU ARE A WATER DOG. ;) Love your mommy, Amory Want to play along?

1. What is one quirky thing about you?

I cannot have a messy inbox. It drives me insane.

Eating at a nice Italian restaurant with dinner, dessert and coffee afterwards. I am always too full to order the last two. ;)

3. What is your favorite picture from last month {April}?

See below. The girls on the rock wall at a local park ... It shows how fearless Emma is. She was up there with a 10 year old boy. He was telling her that she was too little. Boy did she prove him wrong.

Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal.

5. What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Sitting under a shady tree at the park with a picnic, watching the girls play.

6. What is the last movie you saw?

I can't remember!!! I never get a chance to watch movies because of the girls or I fall asleep!! We did start to watch Monsters Inc. yesterday, but didn't finish it.

7. Look up from your computer right now. What is the first thing you saw?

Emma. She's laying on my lap as I type this. :)

8. What area in your life are you working on improving right now?

Being more organized with my time at home in regard to meal planning, saving, couponing and housework.

9. What is your favorite post that you wrote last month?

'Words will never hurt me'

10. What would be your dream job?

To be an RN in the L&D department on the post pardum side. To take care of those new mommies and snuggle those new babies.
