Early Birthday!!

*Edited to add: I started this blog about four days before my birthday. And just remembered it! Ha! Oh we'll, enjoy if you can! And I'm not used to blogging from my iPad, so I don't know why my pics won't go where I want them.

Well, even though my 34th (gulp!) birthday isn't until next Sunday, I've already gotten two amazing gifts!

I've been wanting a small, handheld carpet cleaner for awhile. Because when messes happen on the carpet here, they are of the dog variety. I don't like getting out our giant Bissel carpet cleaner to clean one little dooky spot, so I was hoping Santa would bring me the Bissel Spotbot! And he delivered! In the form of my awesome in laws as a birthday gift!! Thanks, y'all! I've used it several times already, and the best part is you set it and walk away. Yes, it does the work itself and dings when it's clean!

Another thing I've been eyeing is a new handgun to add to my collection. I don't talk about my love of handguns on here, um...ever, but yeah. I really wanted the Ruger LCP 380. It's a compact pistol (semi-automatic) that is perfect for carrying. I called every gun dealer in a 40 mile radius and no one had it! I blame the school shooting and a re-election year on this run for guns and ammo. My timing was off by about two weeks, according to all the dealers I talked to. But, my persistence paid off when I found a gun "Craigslist" and found about five people in my area with them for sale! New! Thank you husband for this most generous gift!

Still on my list for anyone else needing an idea (ha ha!) is K cups and new house slippers. Dude, that's how 34 year olds roll. I'm practically 80.

We are slowly getting back into our groove after returning home on January 4! I came home to mass chaos in the form of Christmas decor, laundry, new gifts, and loads of unpacking. Thankfully the children started school back and I got almost everything knocked out! Just a few more things to do and then I'll start the week over with a whole new list. It never ends, but for that I am thankful.

What have y'all been up to lately in this new year?


  1. That spot bot looks awesome. Does it clean up TT?

  2. You are stinkin' cracking me up. A handgun!!! I read that and laughed out loud and the hubs wanted to know what was so funny. Girl - we have more in common that I realized. ;) I tried the Ruger LCP 380 but my pinky finger kept slipping off the grip and it made me feel unsteady...I'm thrilled you are lovin' it! And I think that's an awesome birthday gift! Happy 34th!

  3. Child, you are way behind! You had an ENTIRE weekend childless and husbandless, where is your blog? We should have gotten one after your "time alone"!! Get with it! ♥
