For Jason's birthday this year I got him the most awesome gift he could ever want. pats self on back
He always surprises me with such nice things. However, when it comes to his birthday I never know what to get him. He always wants some high tech, super specific gadget that I would never be able to get without him being there when I buy it. NO FUN because he never gets surprised. This year was different. I actually picked the gift out myself (he did guess it a couple times but I never told him he was right).

I spent weeks researching for the best deal, brand, accessories, etc. I called his father who is an expert in this field. I picked up the phone and talked to different customer representatives about the specs, etc. I even worked 3 overtime shifts to buy it. It was a lot of money but totally worth it because he fell in love.

With all the thought I put into the gift I should have known I would be tortured by this gift.

I give you my permanent migraine:

Yes, I know, my fault. I am an idiot. DRUMS, I mean come on who gets someone DRUMS.


He was super excited when he first got them that I actually was excited to hear them. He used to play when he was younger and wanted to start again. I thought that it would be a good activity to keep him occupied plus they are in the garage which would keep the sound out of the house.


These are not just cymbals; they are metal torture devices!

These two little sticks pack a huge punch and need to be thrown in the wood pile for my sanity

But look at that pretty blue color; distacts you from the hearing loss you will get if you consider purchasing drums

Needless to say, he loves them and plays for about an hour every other night.

Next step: Register baby for these

Been gone so long

I know I have been so MIA lately.

Super busy.

My bad.

I am now 14 weeks pregnant. I have a bump. I actually feel great. I had a little infection and had to take Flagyl for it. Most DISGUSTING med ever. It instantly starts to dissolve when it hits your tongue. I threw it up a couple times right after taking it. The baby absolutely did not like that medicine. I now have a new respect for my patients that I give this medicine too.

Last doctors visit the baby was already getting in trouble. When she hooked up Doppler machine to listen to heart rate, she would find it and then the baby would move. This was repeated 3 times. She eventually said that the baby was busy running away from her and just gave up (I was glad for this because she was pressing super hard and I either was going to pee all over table or expel a loud fart, haha!) The heart beat was great and really cool to hear. Figures my kid would already be getting in trouble. Definitely Jason's child.

I never did talk about our vacation to Vegas. It was great. I will go again but not for 5 nights next time. The city was beautiful and colorful. It was really exciting. We went and saw The Hangover movie a few weeks ago...Hilarious. It was cool seeing all the sights of Vegas in the movie and knowing what they were.

Here are some pics

We had a great time. Hopefully we will go again someday and I can party with the big boys next time.

Nursery Ideas

Even though it is early on I am still thinking about nursery decorations. (Actually for a long time some of these ideas have been floating in my head)

For a Baby Boy:

I always thought it would be a sports themed room because hubby and I love them. Unfortunately we love different teams and would never be able to agree on one. I do not want to confuse the poor kid either with a Hodge-podge of team colors, etc.

So we have settled on a Superhero theme. I think it will be cute and something that baby boy could grow into. By placing chair rail around room we can paint outline of city because every superhero has a metropolis. We would also frame a bunch of hubby's old comics to place around room. The colors can be bright but not too overbearing.

For a girl:

This will be my only chance to incorporate pink into my house so be certain I will take full advantage of it if it happens. A pink explosion!

My main idea is black, white and pink. Hubby is afraid it will be too dark but with all the pink there is no way.

Love these bedding ideas:

I also love butterflies so I would love to incorporate them. As well as letters of the name on the wall.

On side note found these on Etsy the other day. Swoon. Too cute for little girl!
