Labor Day weekend is around the corner...anyone remember what we do over Labor Day?

What no guess?

We CAN SALSA! This year I am limited on time and hope I can do it all on Sunday.

Loves and hugs--I <3 traditions!

Some people clean, some people decorate, we choose to buy appliances! Our kitchen is tiny, 9'x9'. I decided to give up one of my cupboards to put in a new dishwasher! 

We also bought a 7' deep freeze to stock up on freezer meals and breast milk.
Loves and hugs--We are 10 weeks out until she arrives!

You are experience RAW emotion from me at this moment. The worst haircut that has ever happened to me--jut ended.  Remember the goofy little girl from our childhood Ramona Cleary? 
Well, you can see her in person, just stop by!

All those plans for pregnancy photos this weekend...yeah, that's not happening. Sorry Baby Grey, you are not getting to see your pregnant mom. I just pray that my hair grows out by the time she is born so I do not have hideous hair in her newborn pictures....or there won't be any!

Loves and hugs--watch what buttons you push tonight I might breakdown and cry.

Ok Ladies....I have a very serious question...why do you get breast implants?

I have officially grown several cup sizes in the past six months and I do not understand the fascination with large breasts! Why would you go through that just to have a guy notice you? I understand if you needed a lift but really to go to a Double D, its just wrong!

Loves and hugs---The things I think about...now-a-days.

We are NO LONGER friends! I do not like you, I do not want to step on you, and I definitely do not want others to be present when we have a date.

Fortunately, dear scale, I am growing a sweet little girl and I don't care how rude you are...or what your little evil--digital screen has to say--you DON'T MATTER!

Loves and hugs--In the future, we might be on speaking terms, but not for a longtime.

Crocker Grey

Barefoot, pregnant, and baking!
Loves and hugs-It feels like 1950s!

Sunday, August 21, 2011


Almost success! We tried 3 different zucchini bread recipes and two of them are ok. Tomorrow, I will try to create my OWN recipe! Once it is perfected I will share with you.

Did you know my zucchinis are so large I baked 9 loaves of bread with 1?
Loves and hugs--Just call me Betty Grey

You know how I know you are old?

First Saturday off in weeks...what is on our schedule?

Zucchini Bread-Bake off!

The day will be spent baking different recipes to see what new recipe will be added to our family favorites! More to come...

Loves and hugs--Sad...

3 O'clock

Before pregnancy, I use to get an afternoon high at 3 o'clock. These days, I get a snack at 3 o'clock.

Like clockwork, I need a pick-me-up at 3 PM...without fail...I feel like I am about to pass-out from exhaustion, take a look-see at the clock and what do you know, its 3 o'clock.

Some of my 3 o'clock snacks are:
*Brownie from Chick-Fil-A
*Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie from Paradise Bakery
*Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie from Great Harvest
*Snickers with Almonds
*Swiss Roll

The theme...CHOCOLATE!

Loves and hugs-Nothing stands in the way of me and my snack, NOTHING!

Loves and hugs--That's what I am thinking about!

One more paper and a quiz!

It's true...I have one more paper and quiz and this semester is OVER!

Whatever shall I do with myself?!?
*Wash all the baby clothes
*Clean all the baby things I have acquired
*Make thank you cards
*Move furniture (not me CC of course)
*Perhaps a SPA treatment?

Loves and hugs--All I know is---it will not be HOMEWORK!

Exactly what I need!

How do you do it all...and stay sane?
The past 6 Saturdays, I have been in school, at a funeral, at bear lake, oh, did I mention school?
School Saturdays are the WORST they start at 6 AM and end about 6 PM. 

I get home and what do I find...
Chica, greets me, vacuum lines...what do I smell...bleach...I further investigate...the bathroom=clean, kitchen=clean, laundry=done, dining room=clean. OH HAPPY DAY!

Loves and hugs--Not only is he a HUNK, he cleans!

New Stress

What are we going to do about day care? AHHHHHHHHHHHH

We have about six moths to figure it out but I am starting to stress. CC got bad news at work today and I am complete devastated. Yesterday, he asked if they would be flexible with his schedule and they were so supportive. Fast forward to today, they are not willing to be very flexible. (Insert swear)

Not to mention I have been so consumed with school, work, and trying to stay rested, forget about a nursery or registering for baby gifts. Really, what does she need? Love is all I've got these days, its free and doesn't take much time.

Loves and hugs--It will all work out--but oh, the stress!

Never thought...

Our big dinner tonight was Sam's pizza, pretzel, sprite, and a chocolate milkshake for the amazing price of $5.35.

For the first time--EVER--CC wanted pizza and I didn't.

Loves and hugs--I blog about the most exciting things!

Looky, Looky

It's here! Our newest yard fixture arrived Sunday. These are inserts for cloth diapers! I imagine that they will be washed about 3-5 more times before baby Grey arrives.

Loves and hugs--Firsts are so exciting!

New Developments

Pregnancy update: Week 26

*I now snore
*Not only do my feet swell, THEY HURT
*I can feel her move like CRAZY
*I do not have balance (I look like a drunk when I walk)
*I LOOK pregnant
*Pregnancy brain=I had a point but I forgot
*Stress about daycare/nanny/work schedule/school schedule/diapering/nursing/etc.
*Dark spots on my face

I couldn't be happier! She can just take this earthly vessel and abuse it all she wants because when she gets here I am going to LOVE her, hold her, and squeeze her!

Loves and hugs--We are SO ready to meet her--only 14 weeks to go.

Mercy Me

They are one of my FAVORITE Christian bands...today, as I was listening to "Bring the Rain" I thought back to the past year and how true the lyrics are for me...Naturally, I wanted to share this thought.

"Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain "

Loves and Hugs--Easier said than done, right?

Pet Peeve

Something that drives me crazy...a toilet room. I am at this 4-Star resort and my toilet has it's own little room...why would you want to go potty by yourself in a 3x4 foot room?

Since CC is a home designer...we will NEVER have one of those.

Loves and hugs--It is really the little things that make me happy!
