Every Little Girls Dream...

To marry a prince! Well, Kate definitely got her wish!

I caught some of the wedding this morning during Allen's 3am bottle. Her dress was absolutely amazing and breath taking. They seem genuinely in love and it shows on their faces. I feel both envious of her and sad for her. Envious because, well for one she married a prince and will have a lavish life. I feel sad for her because she will no longer have a personal life, can't go anywhere without security and will have eyes on her 24 hours a day just waiting for her to fail. I read somewhere that they are going to try and "Ice Out" her family because they do not want anyone elses voice in her head. That right there is sad.


 The famous kiss. When she walked out onto the balcony, she said "Oh Wow!" I can not believe how many people were there! I love the little girls facial expression, lower left hand side. hehehe

 A lot of people are saying that Kate's style is a lot like Princess Diana's. They are both stunning women.

 The cake looks amazing and very yummy!!


 So I honestly don't get the big hats... Princess Beatrice (R) has the most hideous one there. Some of the hats and flower headbands were very pretty, I just dont get the ugly ones... lol

Chicken & Dumplings...

I made Chicken & Dumplings for the first time the other day! They turned out freaking A-MAZ-ING!! I made mine in the crock pot and let it cook for 4 hours.

Here is what you will need:

-- 1 1/2 cups milk
-- 1 1/2 cups frozen green peas and carrots
-- 4 Boneless Chicken Breasts cut-up 
-- 2 - 4 cans (10 3/4 ounces) condensed creamy chicken mushroom soup {depending on how much you want to make}
-- 1 cup Original Bisquick® mix
-- 1/3 cup milk
-- 1 1/2 Chicken Bullion Cubes {with 2 cups of water}
-- Paprika, if desired

1. Mix 1 1/2 cups milk, the peas and carrots, chicken, Bullion Cubes w/ water and soup in the Crock Pot.

2. Cook for a few hours, make sure the chicken is fully cooked.

3. Stir Bisquick mix and 1/3 cup milk until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 8 spoonfuls onto chicken mixture (do not drop directly into liquid). They will float.

4. Let dumplings cook for about an hour or until the middle is cooked.

5. ENJOY!!!!

I can't wait till the party!
It will be our first combined party!

I confess...
My laundry has not been done in a few days.
Now all of the hampers are full.
Anyone want to take a guess at what I will be doing all.day.long?!?

I confess...
I can't wait for warmer weather.
I will be taking the kids to the park all the time.
Plus the sun cheers me up :)

I confess...
I have until September to lose 60 pounds.
I think I can make that goal.
I need to make that goal...

I confess...
My son has become a Wii Nazi

Day 14:

A picture of something you could never see your life without...

What We're Loving: 3 1/2 months...

Wow, 3 1/2 months already... Sheesh! He is growing too fast!!!

Here is what we are loving right now:



Nuby Bug-A-Loop Teether - Allen loves this one because he can get it to his mouth with no trouble. It is hard and soft, which is nice.

Nuby Icy Bite Teething Key Ring - This right here is Allen's favorite teething toy. He can get these in his mouth with ease and he loves to chew on them. He goes through so many frozen teethers, its crazy!


Munchkin Fun Ice Chewy Teethers - These ones are nice because Allen can grab them easily. I can not keep teethers frozen long enough for Allen. He goes through all of them so fast.

{Can you tell I have a cranky teething beh beh on my hands?!?}

Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun - Allen loves this for about 20 minutes and then gets tired of it. He is starting to grab for things and push buttons to make noise/music. He is also starting to bounce in it and use his leg muscles!!

Aquaphor Gentle Baby Wash & Shampoo - I love this stuff!!! Allen has very sensitive skin and has really bad cradle cap. This has worked wonders for his skin. He has steroid creams for his eczema, but I hate using it. This works great for it!


Infant Tylenol - We give this to Allen when he is teething really bad. Poor little guy screams in pain when nothing else works. I had Teething Tablets, but they have since been recalled. I cant wait till they are back. I used my last bottle of the tablets a few days ago.


Huggies Little Snugglers Size 2 Diapers - Love these diapers!!! No leaks!!!

♥ He is also still loving his swing and  lovie ♥
--------------------------------

Thought I would switch it up... Things we are not loving...


Graco Snugfit Safe Seat Car Seat - Once his butt touches the seat, he screams. He hates his car seat :(


Nuk Pacifiers - I bought a few different brands of binkies.. He likes none of them. The only one he will take, is the Soothie ones. I hate those..


What are you guys loving?!?
