Crazy daze

So this week has been super crazy, just like all the weeks before.  Buying this house has been super stressful, like buying any house. This house is historic so I have to follow certain rules if I want to update things. Blah blah blah. Home owners insurance, a home warranty because the house was built in 1890, and transferring all the bills. All while packing up the house and dealing with the kids. Matt has been working at the Post Office for 12hours+ everyday, poor guy. So he's not around to help much. Plus the boys are almost done with school. Thank goodness! Because I'm sick of waking up early in the morning and dealing with their cranky butts. 
And Remy has been teething like crazy and not wanting to sleep so that's been awesome 😑 
I just need to get through this weekend. Once we are moved into the house everything will get better, right?!? 
It has to! 
Because I don't think it can get any crazier 😬 
If you don't hear from me in a few days, send help. Lol

World's kinda-worst Mom

I'm sitting here while I should be folding laundry but I'm too damn annoyed to do it. 
My kids are spoiled. 
There I said it. But the thing is, it's my fault. 
I give them everything they ask for, within reason, and they act like total jerks to me. And to each other!!
I got one kid asking me to order pizza EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. I'm not even kidding when I say this. It's the most annoying thing ever. 
Why? You ask!?
Because you can't feed your 8 year old pizza every night. 
1. You will go broke. 
2. It's seriously just not normal to eat pizza every single day. 
Conform. Try something new. 
Bread, sauce, and cheese and not the only ingredients in the world. Yes, they are amazing. And I do LOVE pizza but seriously. 

And then I have another kid that thinks the word 'no' is just an option. 
Case in point- 
Dylan- can I go to my friends house on a school night?!
Me- no, it's a school night. 
Dylan- (scoots away on this scooter 🏍) 
Me- 😑 (takes scooter away and makes him to go his room) 

Now they are both sitting in the living room in complete silence until bedtime. 
Well every once in a while one of them tells me "you used to be nice". HA. 
Yea, I used to be nice when you used to listen to me! Or "this is the worst night ever". 
Now I'm not expecting them to complete angels but come on. I have to tell them something 4 times before they listen. 
My mom used to make me sit at the dinner table all night if I didn't finish my dinner. Thank goodness my Grandparents raised me so I didn't have to do that too often. HA. 

Sorry for the rant. Sometimes it just feels good to get it out. And please let me know I'm not the only one with bad children.

Coover Street

Last year at this exact time, we moved into the house we thought we would live in forever. Well that didn't happen but that's fine. Everything happens for a reason.
So now we did find my dream house and we are officially moving!! Yaaay!!! 
I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure.
But its for SUUUURREEE!!
Sooo crazy! 


We actually move in this weekend. 
And they tried to tell us that this key was to lock the doors. 
So clearly I will be going to the hardware store to be making some updates. Hahahahha. 
The house was built in 1890 so some things are a little dated, understandably. 
But knowing me and my kids I'll probably put up a while security system with cameras and whatnot. 
I know what I did when I was a teenager and my kids will NOT be acting like that. Hahahahahaha. 
But seriously, I'm so excited! 

The floors are approved by Remy, so he can crawl all over the place! 
The fireplace on the other hand definitely needs to be updated. 
I'm so glad to be able to update and renovate a house again! 
Stay tuned for fix-ups and fuck-ups because you know it's gonna happen! Hahahaha

Indigo Slings

So for the past few weeks I have been in between jobs. And needless to say I have been going crazy at home. I never take off work. I went back to work 5 days after having Remy.
So to occupy my time I started making Indigo dyes.
Indigo dyes?! You ask yourself. It's like tie-dye but there is an oxidation process blah blah blah. 
They look like this. 

This is a baby sling I made. I have been doing custom orders for baby slings and pretty much anything else you could think of. Curtains, pillowcases, shirts, baby onesies, and dish towels. 
Shirts for the boys. HA. 


This is also a custom dye baby sling that I sold to a mom. 
So in my "free" time I kinda made a little business for myself and I couldn't do it without the love and support from my family and the awesome mamas in the WildBird Facebook group. Without them I would just be a weirdo dying pillowcases in my kids play room. 
So if anyone wants to buy an awesome handmade sling, made by moms in Utah check out Wildbird. The mama that owns the company is amazing and I've had nothing but great experience with them! 
And if you would like anything dyed just shoot me an email on here! 
It's be getting the Etsy store up and running after we move. 
That's right folks! We are moving, again, but I'll tell you all about it later.
