Alyssa's a TEENAGER!

I cannot beleive it, Alyssa is now officially a teenager. We had a very nice day yesterday. We took a little trip to Grove City to let her pick out a few birthday gifts. She picked a couple of pairs of Chuck Taylor's, pj pants, a shirt, and a new bookbag. Then we went to dinner at O'Charley's. She ate more like a teenage boy, then a 90 lb. girl! It was funny, she ate a steak, about a half dozen rolls, a salad, french fries, and chicken fingers... oh, and her free birthday dessert!

Overall a very nice day.

Room Swap Complete

This past weekend we finished swapping rooms. Alyssa is now happy in her new cool room, happy because she finalyy has a closet. And Ava is happy because her room is HUGE and she has plenty of room to run and play.

Eventually we will have Ansley joining her in there (that should be interesting) but for now, she is still in her crib for a while.

Friday afternoon we had our first sonogram done of the impending babe... everything looked great and my due date became a little more accurate. January 13th. So we will most likely be looking at a New Years' Baby! We stilll won't find out what we are having for about 6 weeks yet, but we are already going over names.

I had a good time shopping at CVS this week. I have enough nailpolish to last a lifetime, and we made a bunch of really cute photobooks too. They turned out really nice.

Alyssa's birthday is this week, and her party is scheduled for Friday... that can't be over fast enough! Countless teens running around the yard screaming and dancing for hours --- yeah!

My first "blog"

I really have no idea what to blog about, but I was bored, and should be doing something else besides this but oh well.

This evening I am going out to celebrate Becky & Sarah's bachelorette party. Should be a good time, even though I will be bringing my non-alcolic wine with me.
Anyways, I think I will use the blog to showcase my kids, my CVS deals, and whatever else comes to mind.
Here is a great site to check out all the CVS deals -
I plan on moving all the clutter of the house into the basement and then decluttering it from that point, so maybe I can use this as my accountablity forum. Before & Afters would be a nice touch too. We shall see....
