Moylan Mayhem at it's finest

So I returned from Auditor only CPE only a little tired and family that loves to make fun of me when I have been out and about. It's been a while since I have been out and about and despite thinking I am pretty young, I am pretty old! I could not believe how aggressive people are. (And I totally just did the aggressive cheer in my head to spell it---B-E AGG-RE-SS-IVE!). Our group was a mix of guys & gals

Saturday we ventured out to the Farmer's Market. Taking your husband to farmer's market is not recommended. I always remember as soon as we go shopping why I don't enjoy shopping with him. I forget because I like for us to do things together, but I always feel rushed. But we got some kettle corn and a porkie on a stick. Saw some crafts that I could/can make (maybe even better if I do say so myself), contemplated one day having my own booth, and then wondered how much people actually sell.

The rest of the day was spent lounging around. We were supposed to go boating but our friends backed out on us and we didn't want to get the boat out by ourselves. Mostly because I am not proficient in driving either the boat or backing the trailer.

Today I ventured into cleaning the coat closet and going through B's clothes. Not an easy task trying to remove things from a pack rat. I mean really, he is motivated to hoard by watching the show. He also bought a new TV for our bedroom as a reward for being gone 4 months. I don't blame him.

We also shampooed the living room carpet. The last time we did it I was in labor and we have been meaning to do it for over a month. Finally today mission complete. I also got about an hour to fix a pair of pants where a seam came loose and created carseat spill mat.

I saw one on and thought that is such a good idea. I know my dad would love them as he is a huge fan of seat and floor board protectors. So a little eye-balling, my first attempt at pockets on an object, voila! carseat mat. I will post some pics as soon as I have installed it in B's truck. He wasn't as impressed by my craftiness, but the pattern is baseball inspired just for him. I have seen so many projects I want to make lately now that I am following some more crafty bloggers and some are getting ready for Christmas. I almost want to vacation just to craft for a week.

However, we have over 20 audits to get done by the end of the year and not very many auditors. Not thinking I am going to get much vacation.

The Kid is a rock star this week. She can stand all on her own and without assistance! It is so funny. She is kind of trying to take steps but they are more like falls. But she is so happy about it, you couldn't ask for more. She keeps trying more foods and is such a good eater. She had her first buffalo wing the other night and likes to share apples with her dad. Doesn't seem like she is a fan of my cooking, and I am trying not to let it bother me.

We have a semi-busy week coming up, so stay tuned.

Thankful Thursday/Friday

I see many bloggers do this and I think it's neat:

I am thankful for:

A husband that is fully capable of being a parent

A happy, healthy, funny daughter

Kick ass co-workers to travel with

Awesome firm co-workers that will have a good time with you.

Happy weekend!

10 months and 2 baths later.... happened. Our first, the poopsplosion of epic proportions. I have heard of them, felt bad for the parents and silently thought, Thank God that hasn't happened to us. Don't get me wrong, she had a few blowouts, stained a few outfits but mostly it was contained. But tonight as we celebrated her 10 months in the world, after chatting with Grammy and Grampy, I was christened with arms full of poo.

It did not go well. I realized it was all over me and beckoned for help. We shimmied the jammies off of her and B gave her her second bath of the evening. She was not happy, I was squirming from the poo. Not something I want to relive, but after getting new jammies and a bottle she settled into sleep.

I only have one thing to say before I head to bed after dealing with what the hubby has called the Crisis, ICK!

I feel like Chef Duff

People were posing with our cake at the wedding!!!!!!!!!!!

We had so much fun making it and may have a few other requests coming for some party cakes. Who knew two little accountants could be creative?

In Kid news.......she can stand on her own for about 10 seconds and loves walking around with her Dora car or holding my hands. She even said Mom today!

Whoop Whoop for fun Saturdays that start out in CPR class.

It seems like we have been going non-stop since the last post with no sign of slowing down. It just blows my mind how quickly days, weeks, and months fly by. Shoot, the Kid is going to be 10 months old next week!!!!! It feels just like yesterday I was whining, waiting for the pregnancy to be over.

But in the lives of babies, things can change very quickly. 4 teeth, crawling, walking with her Dora car, and she has pretty much decided she hates purees. The walking bit is the newest feat and probably the most fun too. She has also decided the dogs make pretty good wrestling partners and proceeds to rotate which one she is beating up each day. They are pretty good sports about it and only occasionally try to run away from her. Too bad for them, she is a lot quicker than she used to be and can get to them with little problems. Dinner time has changed a little around here, a little more thinking is involved.

We have been to a few more baseball games and she does really well. Orbit is a big hit with the kiddos and she claps when she sees him. She fell asleep during the fireworks on the 4th, woke up, watched for a few minutes, rolled over and went back to sleep. We couldn't ask for anything better I don't think.

Unfortunately, with so much rain since May we haven't been able to take the boat out. The river is just high and fast. Sadly, the Missouri has taken some lives in the last few days and there is just no point risking it. Thankfully, it has stopped raining and we have had some nice weather.

The Kid and I went to her first pig show today and let me tell you Kansas folk, your pigs are safe. Showing is a completely different game here. It shocked me, I have never seen a Hog Jogger before. The poor judge even commented on the quality of the piggies, sadness. She did very well watching the show, mostly playing in the bleachers and people watching.
