Home Alone...with Mallory

One day our homes will be quiet. Today is not that day. ~ Steady Mom

Our boys have been off on their vacation for 3 days now and we've kept ourselves busy. But yesterday, we took the day off. We stayed in our pajamas until 11am (someone peed on theirs...I won't say who) and we played house and farted on each other. Mallory started that game....

It's so much easier having just one child in the house. I've prepared less food, picked up less toys and wiped one less bottom. The noise level is half of normal too...with less crying.  Although Mallory did get mad at me over some J-LO (jello) and stomp off to her room for 4 minutes.  

But I miss my boy....

I forgot to tell you the story about the Tea Party. The beautiful little girl named Gabby that was sitting next to Bobbi was confused about how Mallory was Bobbi's niece because she thought that I was Bobbi's Mother.

I'm saving for a facelift....

My Allergist called yesterday with my lab results. Everything was negative! I do not have any systemic diseases and no allergies to venom. But I still have a fat lip. I have a dentist appointment today...perhaps my wisdom teeth are causing this? It's just so strange that it started that day I was stung by that Wisconsin Honey Bee....

I'm freaking out about the dentist....

I had an idea for a blog that I was really excited about.  It's basically a guide to The Top of Utah.  When we moved here I searched high and low for a place to find information about restaurants and things to do and it took so long to figure everything out.  I wanted to make a website where people could find this kind of info and blog about the different places as we visit them.  So, I'm working on that and I'll show it to you when I'm done.  I don't know how long we'll be living here so I wanted to make the most of our time that is left. 

You know I'm an overachiever.....


  1. I love that now you don't have to freak out about the allergy results you have moved on to freaking out about the dentist. I am sure it will be okay, but I hope you find out something soon!

    I love when my daughter and I (or my son) have some alone time! Sounds like you are making the most of it. Farting games: priceless memories! :)

  2. What a fun day!!
    I heart the new header!

  3. so glad the results came back negative although I'm sure it's frustrating not being able to figure out what's going on with your lip.

    Thinking of you today :)

  4. awww.. what a fun day!! i want to see your website!! what a great idea!!!

  5. The simple thought of going to the dentist makes my stomach turn.

    And, I LOVE M's pretty pink princess dress! Sounds like the two of you are having a blast!

  6. Isn't it awesome when you can have the time to focus one on one with one kiddo?? I love it- some of my best memories...


  7. One kid is way, way easier. Everyone always thinks I'm my mother's sister. That's always nice. Farting is so funny. I know we are supposed to act like it isn't, but it is.

  8. That's a really good idea about the Utah blog. I'm interested to see how it comes out.

    It's great that you got some 1 on 1 with your little girl. Love the princess dress up outfit!

  9. I'm so glad to hear you don't have allergies or exotic systemic diseases! Just remember, the body is a weird, wonderful thing :) And really Connie, you should go to the potty if you feel you have to and not pee in your pjs (jeez!) :) I love having the kids leave for a little bit, it makes me appreciate them so much more when they come back (although I do enjoy the quiet for a little bit!)

  10. You are SUCH an overachiever...so ambitious!

    Looks like you and your girl, M, are having a splendid boy-free time! Glad to hear that your symptoms are nothing extreme.

    Hope you're having a great week so far!♥

  11. Sounds like you guys are having so much fun :) You do not need a face lift...that person just needs glasses!

  12. That is SO awesome that you and Mallory got to hung out.

  13. It is sooooo much easier when just one kid is around! I bet its been a blast to have some girly time!

  14. I have one kid, and that's a lot of noise to me HA!

  15. It's so much fun being able to focus on one child at a time! Glad you and Mallory are having fun girly time :) Even happier that you can breathe a sigh of relief over the negative test results.

  16. I'm so happy the tests came back neg! Maybe you should embrace the fat lip, don't women in Hollywood pay big $$$ for that look?


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
