Guess Who's Back?!

 ... back again.. Stephanie's back.. tell a friend ...

Bet you didn't see me as someone who raps Slim Shady from time to time, did you? Well I am...

... actually I'm not. #totalsuburbanMom

So we are settled in Ohio. It was a crazy couple of weeks. Between moving, unpacking, ridiculous weather and a sick Frank, I am ready for a bit of normalcy in our life. But instead of sharing the boring details of moving, unpacking and snotty noses, I thought I'd kick off the weekend with a little bit of what's on my mind these days...

I am happy to be home but I am not one bit excited about this mother flippin' weather. The high yesterday was 9 and the low... the low was -9. My weather app said it felt like -11 at one point. Say what?! This cold front has made Dayton colder than Anchorage, AK and Portland, Maine.

We have a list of to dos a mile long. From finding doctors, to switching our vehicle registration and driver's license to getting passports to shopping for the house and decorating, we have plenty to keep us busy for the next 3-4 weeks.

The temperatures/weather need to get it's act together so that we can get of the house more. I've bundled C and myself up more than once and braved the temps just so we didn't start suffering from cabin fever. I've found tons of indoors activities for the two of us to do and I plan to start adding those outings to our schedule come March 1st.

Connor has taken the transition to Ohio pretty well. Sleeping has been hit or miss but overall, I'm so impressed with how well he is rolled with the change. Next up on our agenda is to take his pacifier away. Friends, please send good vibes and happy thoughts my way when we attempt this. For the 3rd and final time. I have an idea of how to make it an easier transition but let's face it, with a 2 year old anything is possible. Good and bad.

I have a lot of great things in store for WMM and my readers for the month of March. I have some new products to share with you, a keepin' it real linkup is debuting and there will be an opportunity for boy Moms that I can't wait to share. 

Thank you to each and everyone of you who posted for me while we were making our move. Thank you to my readers that hung in there while I was busy. I'm back and can't wait to get into the swing of things again.

And for those of you suffering from Connoritis, here's a photo of him being.... well adorable!


Happy Friday, friends!

  2. I'm happy to hear the move went well! It's ben freezing here in NC, today is says feels like -3! So didn't sign up for this. Anyway, glad you're managing to get out and avoid cabin fever. We've been in the house a lot! Good luck with taking away the pacifier...although I do have to say, taking it away now may be really, really hard if his sleep has been off with the move. Moving is a huge change in itself and he may need that comfort in his paci more at the moment. Whenever you decide, stay strong!

  3. I am glad that you are settling in your new home! Michigan weather hasn't really been appropriate either. I am starting to go crazy having to be in the house all the time. I can't wait for my big move to warmer weather at the end of the year, and totally ready for my vacation. Hopefully spring wil be on its way and you will be able to finish all your decorating! I am so happy Conner is settling in well! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I was listening to the radio the other day and they we talking about the weather in Ohio and they had a quote from someone who was saying "I'm tired of shoveling snow, I'm tired of the cold" and I actually thought about you! "Boy, I bet she's bummed she moved back during this weather!" :) So glad Connor seems to be doing pretty well!

  17. Haha! Slim Stephanie!

    Glad you guys are getting settled back at home! I’m sure it’s exhausting, but exciting all at the same time. The weather here has been nasty lately – ice, rain, snow, COLD, COLD, COLD! So, I can’t even imagine how it is there. I’m over the cold and ready for Spring. Passports? Do you guys have plans to go somewhere? And yay for Connor adjusting well! Praying about the pacifier situation and that it goes well. He sure is a handsome little guy!
