Miscellany Monday...

It's Monday, so you know what that means...It's time for THE MISCELLANEOUS!!

{1.}  I don't understand why women think it's okay to call one another "dumb bitches."  I find it to be in bad taste and really not advancing women as a whole in any way, possibly just showcasing your own ignorance.  This is coming from something I saw on facebook (ridiculous, yes I know), but I don't think it is necessary to use this phrase whether you know the women or not, and in this case the girl using it does not know the other woman involved!  Sorry this is my one and only rant of the day, haha!

{2.}  We had my brothers graduation party on Friday evening and I got pretty drunk, AKA consumed an alcoholic beverage for the first (well second if you count the glass of wine I had last weekend) time in 8 months!!  I had a great time and enjoyed partying with all y friends and family, but I will not be drinking like that again for awhile.  Being hungover (yes my minimal amount of beers gave me a hangover haha) and having to take care of two children (nursing on of them) the next morning is noooo fun haha!
{Emma and Uncle "nommy" dancing...crazy how old my brother looks!!}

{3.}  So, my little Isabelle has embraced sleep!  She goes down at about 11pm (and so do I) and doesn't wake up until about 4 or 5 depending on the night, woohooo!!!!!  After that she does like to eat every 2-3 hours, but getting 5 straight hours of sleep is AMAZING.  It took us some time to figure out what my girl wanted/needed to sleep, but in the end she (just like Emma) liked to have a blanket surrounding her head.  Yes I know this goes against everything they tell you not to do...but it keeps her happy!

{4.}  My momma is coming over today and bringing some groceries!!  Going shopping with two babies is NOT doable and the husband tried his very best to get everything we needed, but didn't get everything.  I was over the moon that he even went grocery shopping haha, more like in shock.

{5.}  So, I tried putting the double stroller purchase off, but we DEFINITELY need one, so after reading reviews until I was blue in the face we went with...
All of the reviews for all double strollers were pretty average, but I like the look of this one and there were no complaints about comfort for the babies!

{6.}So I won a giveaway at Taylor's blog today, woohoo!!  I NEVER win anything.  I won the Savvycents wallet...
...This will be perfect to throw in the diaper bag and since we are on a budget of sorts I am pumped to see if this helps us spend less!!  SO head on over and check the wallet out as well as Taylor's blog, both great sites!!

So, thats all the miscellaneous for me today.  Head on over to the fabulous Carissa's bloggy and join in on the miscellany!
