Happy (Sleepy) Wednesday!

I am loving that despite my little sleep, I am at least able to function! (Or so I think, if this post sounds a little loopy, I stand corrected.) I'm sure I have mentioned it before, but for those who don't know, my little guy is not a sleeper...up nearly every hour during the night. Crazy! We had to start giving him melatonin to help him out; it helps a lot of kids on the spectrum that have sleeping trouble, so I figured it was worth a shot. It usually works for him (he only wakes 2-4 times), but last night, not so much. He was out at 8 for what was apparently just a short power nap, then up till 5 am. Whew, is it any wonder I'm sleepy? But I love him anyway...

I am loving how Shaun has been calling me 'mama'. I cannot really explain it, but the way he says it is just absolutely adorable and melts my heart every time! ♥

I am loving that Shaun seems to be feeling better. Honestly, he never SEEMED to be feelin bad to begin with but I will just say he was having some tummy troubles and leave it at that. I'd had to take him to the ER Monday, where they did some tests which we will find out about tomorrow! And then he can return to school...which I know he will love!

I am loving my weekend craft project (and Shaun's too!). I am unable to drive off base, so I hadn't been able to get to a craft store in awhile, but I found a few old frames and decided to play around with them, I'm really not a crafty person at all, but I'm satisfied with how it turned out. I am also loving my upcoming DIY project that I hope turns out well- a mirror for my guest room. Pictures to come as soon as I'm able to start.

I am loving that the Easter candy/decor is out in stores...for a few reasons. First of all, I love Easter! What's not to love? But this year, that also means that April is drawing near and with April comes my husband's R&R...two weeks with my wonderful husband after 8 months apart! (Nevermind that we'll have to say goodbye all over again...) I love him so much and can't wait to see him again... and because we will be spending this time back home in Indiana/Illinois there is a good chance that we will spend the holiday there too! So excited for Shaun to get to experience one of Papaw's Easter Egg Hunts...which I'm sure I will write more on later. April is going to bring good things all around and I cannot wait!!

{one} do you always wear your seatbelt in the car?
Yes, and our truck beeps at me on the very rare occasion that I've forgotten!

{two} do you crack your knuckles?
No, I hate that.
{three} what is your favorite flavor of gum?
I really don't chew gum, but if I were going to, I'd choose Big Red. (And now that has me wanting to watch Get Over It- if you've seen that movie, you'll understand why! Ha!)

{four} what is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?
I have a few that I love- though I don't wear jewelry often. Of course my engagement ring is very important to me. As well as my Tiffany's necklace I got for Valentine's day, my (real) pearls, my autism awareness bracelet and the beautiful puzzle piece necklace my best friend bought me for Christmas this year...but I would have to say that though I love all of those, my favorite is my Great Great Uncle Theodore's college class ring. Now more than ever, I am happy to have that piece of him to keep with me always.

{five} who is your best friend?
I have been blessed with many great friends, but through it all, two in particular (besides my husband, of course) have been there for me when I needed them most, and I am happy to call them my best friends.

{six} what is your favorite smell?
lol. I could go on a long while about my Scentsy addiction here...really, but I'll save that for another time. For now, I'll just say that I love cinnamony things and my current favorite is Baked Apple Butter...Oh. My. Goodness. Heaven.

{seven} what is your favorite lunch meat?
Yuck! I'm a veggie!!

{eight} do you still have your tonsils?

{nine} do you untie your shoes before you take them off?
On the rare occasion I wear shoes that!

{ten} what color is your car?
It's a gold/beige color! So boring! One day when I have my bug, it will be something more exciting- red, green or yellow I hope...but we'll see:)


  1. oh my gosh, I love the movie Get Over It! I just made my roommates watch it a couple weeks ago! lol another reason we're friends :)

  2. I love how your craft turned out. I love polka dots, and that color combination is fabulous, so spring-y! ;-) I've seen the Scentsy items around, and they do seem really nice. How exciting that your husband will be taking a break soon! I'm sure it can't get here soon enough for you guys. :-)

  3. Loved reading your answers! I had a yellow bug when I first had my daughter but it was so hard to get her in & out all the time that I got rid of it :(

    Thanks for linking up to Meet & Follow Sunday!
