10 Things I Learned Over the Weekend

By November 15, 2010 , ,

1. Mexican food and breastfed babies DO NOT mix well! Oh lordy!

2. Sometimes I can clean my house so vigorously - I'm in physical pain later.

3. I am seriously considering hiring someone to clean my house, BTW.

4. I LOVE having a fully-stocked pantry and refrigerator.

5. I am enjoying cooking new dinner recipes for my husband, thesedays. I got a new Cooking Light cookbook ... and it's AWESOME so far!

6. As a result of No. 5, I am considering posting a few recipes on my blog in the future ... we shall see.

7. Just because a baby is up ALL DAY doesn't mean she will sleep ALL NIGHT, unfortunately.

8. Reagan is becoming more mobile -- she is rolling side to side, rotating, wiggling and scooting. Ahh-ya-ya! No more leaving her on the middle of the bed while I finish getting ready anymore!

9. Now that harvest is over (yay!), Big D is in the house earlier in the evenings, which is great - because we can spend some quality time together as a family and not-so-great because he confiscates the TV remote and we watch The Kudlow Report, which is not my idea of a good time, but quite possibly better for my brain than say ... Entertainment Tonight.

10. Since I live on a pig farm, I'm a bit obessed with my house NOT smelling like a hog farm. Therefore, if permitted, I burn candles in our house nearly every evening! And P.S. I seriously heart fall-scented candles like Pumpkin Spice and Warm Apple Pie ... yum, yum and YUM!

  1. I'm with you on the Pumpkin Spice. It's my all-time favorite candle scent! Though I think you need to tell Big D that ET is a news program!

  2. #1 caught my attention. It was anything with MSG for us. And caffeine. But bfeeding is still so worth it!

  3. I hear you on the clean house. I am having help to find the floor in every room, but I hope to do the maintaining on my own, along with the help of the other inmates who live here of course! ;-)
    P.S. Cow poop doesn't smell much better! Just sayin' ;-)

  4. Highly recommend a house cleaner! Thanks to Leah@beyerbeware, I have one. She talked me into it! And after having 3 kids, cleaning my house just doesn't get done!

  5. I totally think you should post some recipes.
    When you get a house keeper will you send her over to my house when she's done at yours.
    I'm currently burning a Pumpkin Souflee' candle I got at heavenly scents in G-field. Just found the place and love some of their scents.

  6. A cleaning lady is the only way I have any sanity at all. I have had one sine Big Sissy was born and I became a full-time working momma. It is the best money I spend.

  7. The best gift you can give your family this holiday season is a cleaning lady!!! Take the excess stress out of your life...let someone else clean your home so you can enjoy your family!!
