I didn’t screw up dinner tonight! So I’m really awesome.

And that is always an awesome thing. Hubby looks so dubiously at me sometimes while I’m cooking that it’s nice to produce something not only edible but delectable. 😉 It was lasagna. You may be thinking, “It’s impossible to screw up lasagna.” But if you think that, you do not realize how terrible of a cook I am. In fact, before I got married I determined to not learn how to cook. I avoided it completely. After all, I was an emancipated woman. *sigh* Annnd here I am…a stay-at-home mommy (SAHM) and wife. At least I can always hold to the fact that I’m a decent shot with a grenade launcher. I’m fairly certain the majority of SAHMs can’t say that. Can you feel the awesomeness I ooze?


Yeah, that’s me…being AWESOME. Yeah, that’s not a grenade launcher.

Okay, time to be serious. *snort* Anyone else out there addicted to Words with Friends? When I first started playing, I must’ve been having beginner’s luck, because I was trouncing people, but lately…not so much. I blame it on Mr. Stinky Pants. When I started teaching high school, I got stupider. My flawless English syntax and etymological skill disappeared within a few months. The longer I taught, the worse it got. For example, I didn’t used to use the word “got” all the time. It’s a terrible word! Ugh! And then I got pregnant. And then my brain got even dumber. Now I have to use the dictionary to look up the spellings of even simple words. I thought my intelligence would return after I gave birth, but it’s not happening.

Also, Mr. Stinky Pants gave me gray hairs.

Am I alone here? Who’s with me???

Nursery, giveaways, and cloth diapers

Mr. Stinky Pants did fine in the church nursery today…the same nursery he freaked out in two Sundays ago. It seriously seems like when hubby’s around, he’s an angel. When it’s just Momma, he’s fussy! This was us this morning. Doesn’t he look thrilled to be with me?

When I picked him up at the nursery, he was being held by a cute teenage girl, and he was grinning at her. Little flirt.

I was ecstatic yesterday when I realized our local Navy Exchange (NEX) carries Bumkins all-in-one one size cloth diapers! We bought two, and I’m currently testing them out on my son before writing a review. Let me say that the prints on these diapers are absolutely adorable. 🙂

There are a lot of great things coming up next month!

Don’t forget about the Hidden Treasure Candle giveaway over on Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog. The event starts Sept. 5 and ends Oct. 5. If you’re a blogger, you can sign up for some free opportunities to get your blog name out there, so check it out!

I’ll also be hosting a giveaway on this blog next month as part of the Green Family Giveaway Event! The event is hosted by Formula Mom and Glow Bug Cloth Diapers. Bloggers can still sign up here.

In September, I will be reviewing a Glow Bug diaper in one of the new boy prints! I’ve heard a lot of great things recently about these diapers, and the new prints are in the process of being revealed by the company, so this is an exciting opportunity for me.

Have a great night!
