I made a deal with the hubby, that will go undisclosed in order to have someone come do a deep clean on our house.  As soon as I walked in the door, after having the house cleaned, I had nothing to do.  I usually spend all day in my OCDness and clean.  So what does a girl do?  I pulled out a new book and a bar of chocolate.  It was complete bliss, to say the least.    

The book is AMAZING!

Since being a stay at home mama, I find myself in leggings and my UGG slippers, greatest present.  They literally are the gift that keeps on giving.  

I have finally got my tooshy in gear and have been working out.  It was a killer at first, but the addiction has started to seep its way back into my bones.  The only problem is my bladder.... that baby of mine has done a number on the poor thing.

This smile of Penelope's never gets old.

I have been trying to cook for Tyson.  This is something he has looked forward to since the day I started staying home.  I am not a fan of cooking, but seeing that smile on his face when he walks through the door, makes it all worth it.

Those eye lashes, I die.  I have no idea where they came from.  Neither Tyson or I have long lashes, hence the eyelash extensions.  The eyelash extensions of mine continue to be a battle.  I love them on but I also love to pick them off.  I can't decide which one I like more, so the continued battle carries on.

I made Peanut Butter Blossoms this week.  I ate a whopping seven in one day.  They are beyond delicious, especially with the DOVE chocolate in the middle.  I made Tyson take them to work.  I somewhat regret that, after seeing this picture.

My little chunkster has almost grown out of her Bumbo.  I seriously can't believe it.

Having a baby has turned me into a morning person.  I love how much I can get done before the sun comes up.

Penelope can't get enough of her bath time.  I know they say to only bathe a baby every other day, but what do they know?  She sleeps like a dream when she gets out.

It has been discovered the GiGi had postpartum depression and has been put on Prozac.  I had no idea that this was even a possibility for dogs.  I started crying when I told the vet how sad my dog has been. It was a bit embarrassing.  I blame it on the hormones.  I felt better when she said I was going to make her cry.  Hopefully the pills do the trick.  I can't stand to hear her cry all day.

I can't wait for Penelope to start dance lessons.  I know she is a little young, but a momma can dream.  I pray she enjoys dance as much as I did.  

In other business:

I saw a post on my friends Facebook wall, letting all old Jazz Dancers know of a retro night that would be happening in March.  This is where all the old dancers perform at a halftime.  I am still trying to convince the hubby, that this is a legitimate reason to buy me a plane ticket.

My wedding ring still does not fit....
How long does it take?

Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter has saved my hands from flaking away.  I wash them a thousand times a day, trying to keep P from getting sick again.

I can't wait for my hair to grow out.  Being able to put it in a pony tail would be a dream come true.

I really wish I knew how to sew.

Parenthood is the best television series, I have watched since Friday Night Lights.  I am an addict.

Until next time....
