about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Time Flies

Time flies when you're having fun, but this week has flown by and I haven't had that much fun. I think it's because Monday was the end of the longest fourth of July EVER. I really thought the holiday would go on forever. Celebrations started around here on Friday and went on until Monday.

I'm not sure what I've done this week, but I did take a couple of hours away from the girls yesterday to pick up my new glasses and look at projects for our Week of Wonder (VBS) at Church. So, I have the new glasses and I really dislike them! I feel like they stick out and they just feel awkward. Big Daddy says I'll get used to them, so we'll see. Since my vision is still extremely well I only have to wear them when I'm doing a particular task for an extended period of time.

Anyway...I asked for questions a couple of weeks ago and now I'll give the answers!

Do you wear fingernail/toenail polish, and if so, do you wear the same color on both, or mix it up?
The last time I painted my fingernails was probably during a slow day stuck in the office when I was a real estate broker. I always end up with little chips in the polish so I only do my toes. In the summer I always have my toenails painted and usually it's a very light/neutral/nude color. I have never had a professional manicure or pedicure. Ever. My sister did my toenails for me during both of my pregnancies.

Are you going to have more babies? (MOST ASKED QUESTION EVER!!!)
We say no, but we could always change our minds, right? If we were independently wealthy and didn't have to think about college funds and paying for all of the things that living requires we might have another one. We like to be able to live a comfortable life and have a little wiggle room and I do not want to drive a minivan! Having one more baby would probably make our decision on what our next car purchase will be a lot easier!

Why don't you go to the Church that you grew up in?
We always thought that the Church I grew up in was fine until we found our Church in Sanford that we really loved. When we moved, we felt like we could find a Church that would work better for our family than going to that Church. We attended one Church for several months and then found the Church that we go to now. It was the third Church that we visited. We tried to evaluate the nurseries, the preschool classrooms and all of the things that the kids could be a part of as they got older. The Church we go to is very large (for us) and I didn't think I would like it, but we both enjoy going and have peace of mind knowing what the girls are doing.

How did you meet Big Daddy?
The easy answer is at the mall. We went to the same mall hoping to bump into each other. I parked my car near his truck and waited for him to get out of the movies. (He liked to go to afternoon movies when he came home on the weekends.) I ran into a friend, missed his movie letting out and ran to my car only to find him standing there waiting for me. We went to dinner and the rest is history.
The not so easy answer is that I dated (term used loosely) his friend and we met several months before we met at the mall.

What's your favorite & least favorite thing about being a SAHM?
I like not leaving Maggie & Ellie every single day. I admit that it would be nice to leave them once in a while! I like being able to get up and not rush to get ready for work. I miss getting ready and dressed up each day. I miss having my own money. I like to roll around in the bed with both girls after they are awake and come into my bed. I miss the weekends being special because now they just feel like another day. I miss having holidays off. Sometimes I'm a little jealous of Big Daddy because Maggie & Ellie both get so excited when he walks in the door. I never get that!

Great answers! I planned to email you a question (not one I want answered on here) but did you receive it? No :-)

Def. agree on the last one. There are pros and cons to each but for me the pros of SAHM def. by far outweigh the cons (most days..LOL)

Interesting! I got a pedicure for my wedding and I really enjoyed it BUT I can't justify the cost. I LOVE to stay home, but there are a few things that I miss about work. I don't miss having my own money since before we were married Q and I had a joint account, but I do miss contributing financially.

Glad you answered my question! I don't paint my fingernails would only be a matter of an hour and they'd be messed up! My toes are always painted, and I like the bright colors! I want a pedicure soooo bad. Maybe I'll treat myself real soon! You should too!
