I claim temporary insanity

Hello to all out there in bloggyland!  Yesterday's post was quite the downer, and again, I apologize.  So, here I am, I'm gonna try and make up for it with this one.  Just so you know, I claim temporary insanity for the last post.  Truly, I blame the medicine.  I've always been one whose mood easily sways based on events or others' emotions, but when I add extra hormones...well, I produce depressing posts.  Sorry.  Anyway, here's to a more cheery post!

First, let me start by saying that the mommy of one of my daycare boys just had another baby this morning.  A 10 pound 1 ounce baby.  I'm so excited for them.  Their other son brings so much joy to me and Luke, and I can't wait to start watching baby Cooper in 8 weeks!  I can't imagine what it's like to have a 10 pound baby.  In my mind, I compare it to passing a kids bowling ball, but Google had other opinions.  Google said that it's compared to the following...

A sack of potatoes...Okay, we all know what that feels like.  That's imaginable, really.

An Easter Ham?  Uh, not so imaginable for this girl!  I mean, sure--it weighs 10 lbs, but could you imagine passing an Easter ham like this one?  Yeah, not this girl, but at least it's realistic I suppose....

Two chihuahuas?!?!?!  REALLY, GOOGLE!?!?  I think I'm quite creative, but this tops it all.  I would NEVER have thought passing a 10 lb baby would be the same as passing 2 chihuahuas...not by any stretch of my imagination!
If you remember last week I wrote a post dedicated to my new love interest, Pintrest.  Well, I've been fiddling with Pintrest again, and here's what I liked the most yesterday!

For those of you have not been on Pintrest yet, this is a perfect summary of what it is.  So, if you'd like to do any of those, you'll love Pintrest for sure! 
I am a HUGE fan of music.  Always have been, always will be.  This person took sheet music and made flowers out of it and turned it into her bouquet for her wedding.  Now, this is a perfect example of why I love Pintrest because had I thought of it, I totally would do this! 
*ahem* Now, these ladies have no shame.  I love a good scarf just as much as the next gal, but this is a little too much...*shudders*
I'm always looking for new blogs to read, and sometimes I feel like a stalker, but then I remind myself that I am NOT a stalker, but instead I am an "Intense Researcher" :)
Uh, can you say....AWWW!!  I. Want. One.  A miniature one, in fact.  You know, the kind that I can stick in my pocket and let it poke its head out while we walk down the street.  If I had one, everyone would be jealous.  No doubt!
This is a hidden wine cellar.  Wow.  I want one of these, too, but I would fill it with endless bottles of Mt. Dew and Cream Soda!
Can I get an amen?  Although, I'd have to add to this by saying that this picture goes for McDonald's sweet tea, too!
Lastly, this one....


  1. Oh the joys of hormones. When I had a change of hormonal birth control, I went through a phase that my husband and I refer to as "the time I was crazy". It was pretty bad so I've gone off of hormonal birth control for good and we still like to mention how nice it is that I'm not crazy anymore (and that was almost 2 years ago!).
    I think I could imagine having a 10lb. long as an epidural was involved!
    Love your Pinterest addiction! It helps me to feel like I'm not the only one :)

  2. hahaha ladies with no shame who you gonna blame?..haha

    Passing two chihuahuas? Hmm not even I would have thought of that. More mutts for the cat to bat...haha

  3. This is hilarious. And I would go with bowling ball, but my biggest kid was only 7 lbs though lol

    Oh and those scarves--ROFLMAO :0)

  4. Good job girl! Keep trying to be happy. I'm proud of you. As for passing a 10 pounder... Kyle was 10.6 and Meg was 9.6 which is why i can't have anymore kids. they did to much damage. Boo. Anyway, this post made me smile and I'm so glad i came over!

  5. I would fill mine with Diet Coke. And sadly, I have seen all of these on Pinterest. I have made a rule for myself, I can not pin anything unless I have finished the things I have pinned to do. I had a whole post about it that got sidetracked.


    Maybe after the new year.

  6. Ha! I love those Scarves!! I just gave you an award, check it out at

  7. That baby giraffe is so precious! Fun pics! :) I cannot imagine having a 10 pound baby either, lol!
