It's here again....

Hello People.
I don't know why you're reading blogs, when you SHOULD be watching the Discovery Channel.

great white sharks

It has been on at our house ALL.DAY.LONG.
I'm pretty sure that LB thinks she's a shark.  She attacked her dolphin toy in the bath tonight.
I'm just glad that she doesn't have a surfer toy. That would've been sick.

Poor guy.

This next photo is a little scary.
It's LB's "I will cut you!" face. 
Sends shivers down my spine!

What The Friday?!

Oh! LB. What the Friday?

I can't get my post done this morning because LB is being a big giant brat that had to get up early and now is super tired but doesn't want to play, doesn't want to read, doesn't want to eat, doesn't want to sleep, doesn't want to do anything but whine, whine, whine.
(this is day 4 - I think?)

(and I am SO behind on reading blogs and my TV.. what the friday? I blame Jerk Face.)

Just Some Small Talk about ownership...

Jerk Face got back into town on Tuesday night.
That means I had\ve to share my bed again.
Last night, I hit his arm with mine.. and I didn't move it.. I was comfy.

Jerk Face: "Get your arm off of me! It's hot!"
KSK: "What's yours is mine."
Jerk Face: "No. What's mine is yours -- WAIT!"
KSK: "Agreed!"
And then I stole his pillow.

Just some reminders:

This week was rough.
Jerk Face was out of town, yet again.
I'm sleep deprived, yet again.
LB has been a super fussbutt for 3 days... getting a fever (from her MMR shot) last night, and has been a cry baby all morning.
She's been crying and screaming so much that she's getting hoarse!
How much longer until her voice goes away?
Oh! And I woke up to Minja puke on the living room rug.
(Momma needs a scotch on the rocks a nap.)
Anyways. Enough about the joy that is my life right now.
Let's get pinning!

*And even though it's 3 o'clock, and you still haven't taken a nap...
I still love you LB.

Hiya Cupcake! Let's do a giveaway!

I haven't forgotten.
Have you?
Oh! You have!
Well, then! Let me remind you!
When Jerk Face was out of town (one of the times), I did some online shopping.. and bought an apron...
But! I mistakenly bought two.
Which is good news for you!
I don't need two new aprons.
(I already have two... this would make four.... a little much, yes?)
I am giving you, yes you! the opportunity to win one!

(if you act now...)

I've decided to throw in a cupcake cookbook to match the cupcake apron. (How cutesy, right?)
I don't have the book yet, but I'm going to the bookstore today to pick one up.

Here is a photo of the apron that YOU could win:

Frosted Cupcake apron
from here
You don't need an apron? Well, you could always give it as a gift!

And since I don't have the cupcake book yet, I don't have a photo...
duh, people!

For your chance to win, all you need to do is:

Follow my blog via google friend connect,
and leave me a comment saying that you do!
(1 entry)

*and if you blog about my giveaway,
I guess you can have another entry.
(1 entry)

*also tweeting is an acceptable entry*
just leave me a link... I'm not on twitter, but I think I can still see that?
(1 entry)

for a total of 3 entries.

Contest will end....
(wow... the next national cupcake day isn't until October.. 
Chocolate Cupcake Day.... I should probably end it earlier than that...)
August 4th @ midnight
(National Chocolate Chip Day)

!!Good Luck!!

Should I just bang it?

So... I need a change.
I want to cut my hair like this:

....but that's a pretty big change... (and, unfortunately I don't look like her) as my hair is currently like this:

                                                                    ^ me  ^
(the only semi-recent photo, that I could find, of me with my hair down)

So, I thought I would get bangs first..
(This is not me, either...)

The thing is... I have gone to the salons and asked for bangs... but, apparently, I wouldn't look good in bangs... or something? Because not one hairstylist would give me bangs!!!  Stating that it would be a big change, maybe I should start with layers....  Huh?

But NOW! I have a new issue.  I lost some hair.. (Thanks LB!)... but it grew back.... wherein lies the problem. . . .
*big, loud sigh* 

My hair does this:  (and sorry for the super crappy photos....)

I look like I have devil horns growing out of either side of my head!
I've tried hair spraying them down... to no avail.
I've tried gel... ick!
I pin them down with hair clips... Nothing.
I'm at a loss.
I just ordered Moroccan Oil last Tuesday.. but mostly for the frizz ball that is the rest of my hair.... Maybe that will help it?
What do you guys think? About it all :)
How do I fix my hair?
And what do you think about the hairstyles?
(fyi: my hair is fine and a little wavy and I have a very square jaw -- not quite Bethenny Frankel, though... I'm not sure that first haircut will look good?)

Help quick! It's an emergency!!!

Saturday Morning Mess

Saturday Morning Scene

Ugh! I never cleaned up LB's toys last night...
So THIS is my Saturday morning scene:

(It's not like she wouldn't make the same disaster again today...)

*on another note*
I was also catching up with The Housewives....
Oh ladies!
You embarrass me so!
All of this (...can you actually call it singing?) singing...

The whole Melissa (NJ) 'wench' mess?!
(and clearly staged!)
"shh - shh! Listen to Mommy sing!"

The Classy Countess (NY) singing with Natalie Cole?
Just shoot me now!
I can't believe Natalie Cole let her sing with her!!!!
Speaking of NY...
Simon (nice pants?) too?!
*and why is he so mean this season?*

My goodness!

What does your Saturday look like?

What The Friday?!

LB's doctor's visit edition
LB's original appointment was for Wednesday @ 1p with Dr. G.
About 3 weeks ago, the receptionist, Kathy, called and needed to reschedule, because Dr. G. was going to be on vacation. (In a perfect world, they would KNOW that he's going on vacation, and wouldn't schedule appt's. when he's going to be out of the office...) Okay. She called my phone twice... the 1st time, I didn't answer... I was busy, and it slipped my mind to call her back.. So, she called back a week later (June 30th), and I answered the phone and immediately apologized for not calling her back... to which she replied back with something along the lines of: "Well, I was going to try one more time.."
And THEN what?!
(what the Friday?)
But! I let it go.. she must be having a tough day at work?
 LB's appointment is now scheduled for Tuesday @ 10am with Kelly.  Fine.
Now comes Monday.
I get a call from a strange number... 
I let it go to voicemail.
It's Kathy.
She's not calling to remind me of LB's appointment on Tuesday... they don't do that... which I think is crap.
Kathy's message was to reschedule LB's appointment AGAIN!
Jerk Face called her back. 
Apparently, they called his phone about a  week after they rescheduled the first time.  He didn't answer.
When they call my phone I (usually) answer. 
Jerk Face never answers. They're calling his work phone, and he's busy.
Yes. We should change it so they call MY number first...
Wouldn't you think that if you call one number, and there is no answer... you would call the other number you have on file... you know, the one that actually ANSWERS when you call?!
Kathy got a bit of a 'tude when talking to my husband.
He asked why we had to reschedule again, when we already rescheduled this appointment once before...
(saying a bit of a white lie, saying that we have to keep taking off of work to accommodate them)
*and FYI- they had to reschedule her 9 month appt. too. Why? Because Dr. G was on vacation...*
and Kathy didn't answer his question, only saying something like:
"We've been trying to get a hold of you for three weeks."
LIAR! It was only 2 weeks. AND! You didn't try very hard!
(that's me making a raspberry noise at her.)
So. LB's new appointment date was Wednesday @ 10a. with Evangaline.
I was prepared to have words with Kathy, if she said anything to me.
I checked in.
The receptionist lady seemed nice, and the other one was more of a 'Joe' and less of a 'Kathy'...
She must not of had to work today?
As we checked out with the 'Joe' receptionist, I overheard the seemingly nice receptionist on the phone...
She called herself:
I wanted to tell her that she much less of a b!tch in person.
I'm a lady. So I didn't.

I have other WTF's from this Dr.'s appointment, but this rant post has went on long enough!

Man! It's A Hot One..

With the thermometer reaching the 100 degree mark in Ohio today, I thought I would re-post this email forward that my Grandpa sent me:

Proud Mommy Moment: LB's Dr. Appt.

This is my first time linking up with Emmy!

My Proud Mommy Moment happened yesterday at LB's 12 month appointment... well after her appointment.
She had to get 3 shots. No fun... But! She did really good! She only cried a little bit.. until I picked her up. Mom ALWAYS makes her feel better :)
After the shots, we had to go get her blood drawn.
No fun.
However, the ladies were SUPER NICE, and instead of using a needle and her vain... because they couldn't find one...  They decided to do a finger prick.
They told me that LB would hate it, because it takes longer and she had to keep her hand still.
LB doesn't like to sit still for very long, and we were already at the doctor's office for an hour...


She did really good!
The ladies said that she was the best baby they ever had to draw blood from!
WooHoo LB!
(It makes me feel good, even if they say that to ALL the parents!)

I'm Loving:
Newman O's

..The Peanut Butter Ones..
They're my favorites!
I think that they taste WAY better than Oreo's
..and they're organic, so that's a plus!

I'm Loving:
That after about a month of not going to the gym..
(Jerk Face being out of town a lot and working overtime, makes it hard to get there)
I was finally able to go this week.
Yoga, how I missed you!

I'm Loving:
...well, NOT loving, that LB has to go to the doctor today for her 12 month appointment.
They said there would be shots....
She didn't cry the last time that she got shots...
maybe she won't cry this time?
Pray for us!
Oh! And she needs her blood drawn.

LB's Birthday: What's on the menu?

It has been one busy week!!!  Jerk Face was gone for seven days , getting back only TWO days before LB's birthday party.. and he didn't get any time off work (like I had been sort of expecting... but I guess they are short-handed at his work, which makes him extra popular at work... I guess he's good at what he does...) So! I had to do everything for LB's party by myself... well... me and LB.  (It would have been MUCH easier to do if it was all by myself!)
 But! I think it was all worth it!  

She ate her smash cake like a lady... OF COURSE SHE DID! She's MY daughter, afterall! And I'm about as lady as you can get!  :)
What else would expect?!

~The Menu~

Shredded Chicken
Sloppy Joes
Sweet Pea Pasta Salad
Zucchini Bread (Thanks Mom!)

Watermelon (Thanks Grandma!)
Lemon Bars
Chocolate Cake Pops
Lemonade Cupcakes
with Pink Lemonade Frosting
Homemade Vanilla and Rocky Road
Ice Cream (Thanks Mom!)

Iced Tea
Pink Lemonade
(I forgot to put out the frozen berries for ice
