- random thoughts of the evening -

Some of you may love these random posts...nothing but rambling thoughts, no rhyme or reason. Some of you may hate them...nothing but rambling thoughts, no rhyme or reason. But whichever the case is for you, this is all I got for you tonight. I don't have any deep, poignant thoughts. No heart warming moments to share...just rambling thoughts, no rhyme or reason...

- I am seriously loving Courtney over at The Mommy Matters. I have loved her blog since the first day I found it, but lately I have really been inspired by her raw, honest blogging style.

- Speaking of blogs that I love, I am going to start a "blogging spotlight" over on my sidebar (an idea that I am borrowing from the lovely {shutter}mama)...featuring one of my favorite bloggers every two weeks. Keep a look out for that coming soon!

- I am intensely craving pizza right now. I don't know why...I'm not actually that hungry. I cooked a very healthy, filling meal for dinner, but for some reason, I am seriously craving some pizza. Like a big slice of NY style pizza...yum!

- Can someone please tell me why my child is growing like a weed right now? The funny thing is, she is still a tiny kid for her age, but I feel like she is outgrowing so many of her clothes right now! She was in a size 4 shoe for two weeks...yes, that's right, only two weeks! Some of the size 4 shoes I had for her she didn't even wear! I feel like she has been so small since she was born and now she is trying to catch up to the other kids her age! Total growth spurt means more shopping for clothes for her (fun), which means spending more money (not fun).

- Did anyone else watch the long drawn out Apple iPhone announcement today? Yes, I am a nerd for watching it. But I work in a major Mac office, and things like that excite my co-workers, so we had it streaming into our office. The new "personal assistant" coming out on the iPhone 4S looks promising! Everything else was just kind of "ho-hum" in my opinion.

- Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays...it's almost Ellie's birthday and the party planning is in full swing. But before Ellie's birthday, we have 2 other birthdays to celebrate, and we have already celebrated 3 birthdays since Sept 1....and, after Ellie's birthday, 2 more to celebrate, all friends and family! Holy cow, fall is the season for birthdays around here.

- I need to start staying up later (I say this at 11:22 p.m. as I am still up, writing this post). Seriously though, I have so many things I want to get done, and I don't seem to have any time to do it all! But seriously how do you night owls stay up until the wee hours of the morning? I know a lot of people say that's when the get the most done...when the house is quiet and everyone has gone to bed, but geez, I'm dead tired and it's not even midnight! And yet, I could think of at least 5 things I could accomplish if I just stayed up a couple hours later tonight...yeah, that's not gonna happen...not tonight.

And because posts are just boring without pictures, here are a couple of none other than my darling little girl (who doesn't seem fit into any of her clothes that are hanging in her closet right now!)

Such a beautiful young lady!! Yes, unfortunately, I get lots of things done in the middle of the night when I wake up and can't go back to sleep.

I can't say I know anything about growing babies, but your random thought on birthdays rung a bell. There are SOOOOO many birthdays right now and weddings too for that matter! I always find it challenging to stay on top of all of them and give people all the love I feel for them on their special day. Thanks for joining my blog dear. Can't wait to get to know you better also.

The only time I can get things done is in the middle of the night. Unfortunately I have a toddler with very bad sleeping habits so she won't go to bed until really late which leaves my blogging and pinteresting until really late hours of the night. Have fun with all the birthday parties! I live in state with "millions' of kids so we keep pretty much busy with "millions" of birthday parties. I am definitely a follower of your blog now. Come check mine out and let me know if you are interested in guest blogging. ( I would LOVE to have you!) Have a great day!
