Paint, Babies & Garth Brooks

Another weekend, another blur and another 10 house projects. I'm sensing a pattern that will likely continue for the new few months. If you missed it last week, I announced that we're moving. It's a wonderful situation to be in and we can't wait for our new home, but I never imagined it would be this much work already. Buying a house 6 years ago was a lot easier when we weren't also selling one- haha. But we'll survive and I'm pretty sure people move every day so I just need to put on my big girl pants and deal with all the headaches that come with it.

Our little man is thrilled to have two teeth and we tried out some teething wafers over the past week for the first time. They were a big hit, and I'm reserving them for when I need to buy 10 minutes because that's about how long they occupy him ;) I bought the banana/sweet potato ones and they are great- although the box says 'no mess' which is totally a lie. T finds a way to get it between every single finger, on his shirt and of course stuck to his nose, cheeks and chin. Thank goodness for baby wipes.

Other weekend highlights included just one trip to Lowes and playing some games with friends Saturday night. We played Uno, which I embarrassingly had forgotten how to play...but in my defense, I feel like the newer versions have different cards in them! Switch hands with another player?! After losing at that we played a few rounds of Rack-O which is one of my favorite old school games.

And in case this post didn't feel random enough already, we'll end it with this video. Garth Brooks has been in Cincinnati the past two weekends performing (I WISH I COULD HAVE SEEN HIM!) so I've been stalking all my friends clips and photos from the concerts. Well, I stumbled upon this gem of a video and it just made me love him even more. You can skip ahead to 1:40 if you want :) What a COOL NIGHT for this girl!! Happy Monday!

  1. It is a LIE that those teething biscuits are "mess-free" - they turn into straight-up little chunks of glue once they've been gnawed and drooled on for a while :)

  3. Baby food is soooooooo messy. I feel like I need to follow up every meal with a bath for both of us :) That video was so fun!! I've always wanted to go to a Garth concert :)

  4. It was definitely a lot harder when we moved the second time around because we were worried about selling our house along with buying! Hopefully things go smoothly for you!

  7. I will have to remember those teething wafers when that time comes! I certainly don't remember a change hand card in Uno. I still have my old deck but haven't played in years.

  13. Ahh! Sweet T. He is just the cutest! I can't even with his precious little eyes. I can't imagine the "fun" that comes along with selling a house while buying/building a new one. I have no doubt the extra work you have been doing will be totally worth it! AND GARTH! He's just amazing!

  18. Me and two other gal pals are going to see Garth in Memphis this Saturday. We are so excited!!! We went a couple years and saw him in St. Louis. I never thought I would see him once but now we are going for a second time. It feels like a real dream come true. We've never been to Memphis (except to get on a plane) so I'm excited to do all the Memphis things. It is just going to be a one night stay so we have to pack in a lot.

  20. I feel you on the house stuff- we bought our first house 6 years ago too and now we are wanting to move, but I am already freaking out about selling and buying at the same time!

  22. LOVE Garth! I got to see him twice when he was in Minneapolis at the beginning of this tour and he gave a lady going through chemo treatments his guitar and there was not a dry eye in the whole arena.

  23. Babies usually have working eyes by the end of the first trimester or very beginning of the second trimester. Even as early as six months after conception your baby will show signs of light sensitivity. Here's something else about your baby's eyes:
