So What! Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! I'm linking up with Shannon for another week of So What! Wednesday.

... I have 3 packages that need to be mailed out and they are still sitting by the front door. One is someones birthday gift that is on Sunday. Maybe after nap time today we will try to get out to the post office. And Kristin, if your gift is late, I swear it's not my fault!

... When I read blogs and learn that SAHM have cleaning ladies, I don't know if I'm jealous or thinking "What the eff?". I guess I don't get what they are doing that prevents them from cleaning their own house. We have a pretty jammed packed schedule and I do all the cleaning. Clearing I'm missing something here. 

... I changed the theme of C's birthday. Although, I really wanted to go with a fall festival theme, I was having difficulties with making it work while planning it from Texas (it's being held in Ohio). Hopefully, I can pull off this party. I am thinking it's going to be the death of me.

... Connor has been napping for 3-4 hours straight every day but waking up multiple times at night. If I had to choose, I prefer sleeping all night and having him up with me during the day.

... I want to get Connor a monogrammed shirt for his first birthday but can't stand the idea of spending THAT much money on a simple birthday shirt.

... Target is my Achilles heel. Its safe to say, if I didn't make trips to Target, I would have a lot more money in the bank. I can't just get what's on my list. A stop in the children's section is required.  

... 2014 can't come soon enough. Only because I'm excited to get a new planner. 

Hope ya'll are having a great Wednesday!! It's almost the weekend... sorta.


  1. We used to have a cleaning lady but we also both work full time. We got rid of her to save money and it sucks having to spend weekend naptime cleaning. If I could break it up during the weekdays it would be so much easier so I also don't get why they would have them. Maybe twice a year for a really good deep cleaning?

  2. LOL - I love that you want 2014 to roll in so you can get a new planner. HAHA!!

    What kind of shirt are you thinking for C? I'm always on the hunt for cute, inexpensive monogrammed shirts!!

  3. I feel EXACTLY the same way about target! To the point I only let myself go once a month and stop up on things we need.. then I feel like I'm spending enough already I don't splurge as much :)

    As for the cleaning lady -- I had one until Callie was 13mo. Honestly I can't see how I would've found the time then but that's just us. We've had a cleaner for the last 7 years since my husband started traveling for work. That way when he was home we could spend time together instead of worrying about chores. It was a big help when she was little and let me focus on other things for her. I cancelled our cleaners because I felt like I had time (and I do now) to clean on my own. It also helps that Callie likes to "help" these days. So I think only knock it if those same SAHMs complain about not having enough money. :) We all manage things differently to be successful moms :)

  4. Target's dollar bins get me every time! LOL!

    Thanks for linking up today!

  5. Oh my gosh, that's hilarious that you say that about 2014- I LOOOOVE getting a new planner!
