Recent Haps

I think I've used that title before, but I not feeling creative today so there you have it!

~Basketball season is coming to a close. Sing Hallelujah! Tyler loves it, and I love it if he loves it, but I am so ready to have my husband back! I can't wait to have the weekends together, and to not spend every night in the gym. Roll on track season (he coaches that too)!

~Spring Break begins in 44 days, but who's counting? Oh wait, I am!!! We were originally planning to head to Vegas, but that may be changing to a different location...I don't really care where we are, or what we do as long as we're together. Cute, I know.

~About a month ago, Tyler called me and said that he had received a call from the Stake Executive Secretary asking if both of us could meet with the Stake President that night. I.WAS.SO.SCARED. I basically sweat bullets for about 3 hours until our appointment. He ended up calling Tyler as ward clerk. Hello Sunday meetings! Tyler is pretty excited about it!

~When Noah was born, I tried every diaper there was because I didn't know which ones we would like. We ended up settling on the Walmart brand, which was great because they were cheaper than anything. Fast forward 9 months, and the Walmart brand began to not cut it. I was SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick of the diapers leaking and the laundry that I decided to switch to Huggies. So I started searching for deals and ended up getting 300 for $12.50. I still get a little choked up when I think about it. If you know me well, then you know I like a good deal! Here's how I did it: I got a $20 amazon card for $10 (on groupon), but then it ended up being free because 3 of my friends bought one too, then I went on amazon mom and got 30% off and free shipping and got a box of 156 huggie. The total was $22.00, but only cost me $2 because I had the free $20 amazon card. Then seriously 2 days later, I stumbled upon and got 70% off a box of 144 huggies with free shipping so they ended up being $10.50. Ammaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.

~I joined a book club. My friend invited me and I was a little apprehensive because I've never been in one and didn't know what to expect. I AM SO GLAD I DID IT! I am so excited for the books we are going to read. Such a great variety. I'm so glad I have a husband who pushed me to do it as a sort of time out for myself. It's nice to leave Noah with Tyler and have a couple of hours for myself. Now, I need to get reading because I only have 3 weeks til our next meeting. Dun, Dun, Dun......

~Our taxes are filed! YAY! Now, maybe the refund will get here a little early if Uncle Sam is feeling generous. COME ON Uncle Sam!!!!

~Noah is 10 months old....almost 11. The thoughts of my baby turning 1 makes me feel like I'm having a breakdown. He has been walking around the furniture for awhile now, but recently has stood up all by himself....just for a minute, and then he gets scared and plops down. I am in no rush for him to walk, as he is already getting into EVERYTHING possible just with crawling.

~The sleeping program we did for him is still in full effect! It seriously rocks! He sleeps at least 9 hrs a night, sometimes 10-12. It's amazing. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier! I would recommend it to anyone!!! It saved my sanity, just kidding....but seriously!

~We are sooooo into American Idol! I guess it helps that Tyler's other wife is Steven Tyler. HE LOVES HIM! I won't lie, he kind of annoys me on the show and you better believe Tyler and I have had a few heated discussion about his judging, but it's all good. I can't wait for Idol every week and already have some favorites. Also, what's up with the heart wrenching stories? I have cried at every episode since it started. Seriously.So.Sad.

Well, that's about it for now. I hope everyone is doing good and keeping warm. What's up with the crazy freezing cold weather?!?


  1. I'm pretty sure I had a hand in your diaper deal...I got my card by clicking on your link. ;)

  3. Hallelujah basketball season over on Tuesday (for me!!....) Soon for you... I'm glad you're in the book club too!!! I need to get to reading that book as well.

  4. Of course you can, you don't even need to ask! Also that diaper deal is one of the best deals I've heard of - awesome!

  5. LOVE American Idol this season. It's always nice to have fresh blood, and I DO NOT miss Simon's rude personality or Paula's psychoness. J-Lo is awesome and I love Steven Tyler, although he might be in trouble with the law if he doesn't stop flirting with 15 year old girls. I can't believe Noah is almost 1. Where did that year go? Can't wait to see you guys next weekend. Hope you get to do something great for Tyler's spring break.
