I am taking these things into 2013! 2012 has been a challenging year. 2012 was the challenging year to prepare me and make me appreciate a great 2013!

Menu Monday

Well it's time to get back to meal planning! I have been winging it for weeks, eating stuff from the freezer or we ate out a lot. We have had a crazy couple of weeks. I think life is about to return to normal.

Here is what is on our menu for this week.

Monday - Turkey, cheddar, apple sliders Krystal recipe is for ground chicken, but I am going to use ground turkey.

Tuesday - dinner with the inlaws

Wednesday - Friday

Kate Spade

I really love Kate Spade! I recently bought a wallet from Kate Spade that is a purple/pink color. I really love the quality of Kate Spade. Recently a Kate Spade Outlet opened up about 45 minutes from me. Last week I took a trip over to the outlet.
I felt like a little kid going into Toysrus for the very first time. I just wanted to jump up and down. I was just there to look around, but as I entered EVERYTHING was 60% off. WHAT!!!!! I found a 100 things I wanted. I am still kicking myself for not buying a purse I LOVED. I put myself on a spending freeze except for birthday and Christmas money. I didn't have enough money to buy the purse, so I didn't get it.
I did purchase a passport holder and a new iPhone case. My old iPhone case was worn out, so the iPhone case was an actually need. I have been on a pink kick so these items were just perfect.

Introducing Kaleb Gary

I just realized my post on December 19 never posted to the blog. Better late than never....

Kaleb Gary arrived December 18 at 9:23pm 6 pounds 11 ounces 20.5 inches.

I rushed out last night to buy him My First Christmas bib & ornament. He has to be ready to celebrate Christmas!!!! The bib is bigger than him lol. We could probably use it as a blanket.

Day 2-5

What grandma doesn't carry around a pocket full of pictures of their grandkids?  Well I feel like a typical granny when it comes to pictures. lol I was talking about Kaleb at work and I pull out my phone. I asked would you like to see some pictures. Where I showed like 10+ pictures on day 1.

I was able to spend all day Saturday with Amber & Kaleb.  Amber cracks me up because she asks everyone if they would like to change Kaleb diaper. The way she asks is like a super fun event.

Kaleb hates to get his diaper changed, but he doesn't mind not wearing clothes. He takes after his grandfather in the farting department.  Amber and I both have said that is NOT me.

We just love this little guy so much!

Day 1 - sporting his own sun glasses. These are his sun glasses. They look HUGE on him. They are super tiny though.
Day 1 - wearing his skull pjs just like his mommy
Day 2 - getting ready to go home. He is wearing his reindeer outfit Grandpa & Mimi Post bought him. He is also going to wear it on Christmas day. I will be getting more pictures of him in it.

Day 3 - hanging out at home

Day 4 - waking up. Getting ready to go to the doctor with mommy & mimi
