My mornings are usually spent talking to either Carrie or Alison and are usually spent talking about our crazy kids. Whether, they are smeared with Nutella (a fav in all 3 houses), how it'd be so nice to go to the bathroom ALONE, how many times a certain someone has pooped in the bathtub x amount of times this week, how messy our houses are, how we should probably go out and do an activity but it seems like a lot of effort, and often times we reminice how fun college was...anyways, you get the idea. But we also talk about new blog finds.
So, today was a good day. Carrie gave me a new blog to read. Read it. You'll laugh so hard, you'll have tears trickling down. Momastery.
Just so you know...i'll be putting a paper bag over my head too!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when people are real. I love seeing cute kids, but come on..... those pics get boring. I wanna see what really happens, just so that I know that my life is somewhat normal.

I am new to this brand Oribe, pronounced Or-bay. I love this blog. She uses these products and I love what she does to hair, so I copy her. You should too. She's got some fun tutuorials.

After my weekend, I chose to post these pics. They were from Cancun, Mexico, May of 2007. Only 2 weeks before the I got pregnant with twins. Weird. Anyways, this was such an enjoyable trip. We went with Carrie and Craig and Carrie and I to this day laugh about stuff that happened during this vacation. It was pure bliss. I was really happy. This was our last big Hoorah before we were going to start a family. Crazy...

I am gonna keep this blog sequence alive and play a little game...to see if I can top the weekend before. Which, this weekend I CAN!
Let's start. Ok, before I do, if you have a sensitve stomach STOP reading.
- Cash started vomiting all over the sofa on Friday at 5:30pm.
- Presley started vomiting all over her bed on Friday at 11pm.
- I escaped on Saturday morning for a few hours to do some shopping with Courtney.
- Violet started vomiting Saturday night, continued ALL day Sunday.
- Sunday, let's just say, was my one of my LEAST favorite day of all time. .
- I did escape and see The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo-Good movie!
- I woke up Monday morning vomiting.
- Went sledding as a family. (BIG mom-of-the-year award for this! We promised to take the kids on Sunday and they obviously didn't forget. Surprisingly, it by smoothly and it made me feel a little better.)
- Came home with a 101 fever. Took a nap and woke up to dog puke on my bed beside me.
- On top of all this, I did 455 loads of laundry, cleaned my kitched 200 times and haven't been able to eat a good meal because my stomach is still weak.
I am just keeping it real people. Life sucks. So, for all of you who have a bad day, just think of me. I am probably having a worse day. And in celebration this completely awful weekend, I am looking forward to Brewfest this upcoming weekend! Momma needs a break!
Sorry, for the lack of pics...not having many Kodak moments in the Gibson house.

- Took all 3 kids to Costco and spent a small fortune.
- Went to Red Robin with all 3 kids. Violet hit her face against the table and has a black eye. It was the most unrelaxing meal.
- After Red Robin, put Presley in the car and she vomited everywhere. Not just a little puke, a lotta puke. (At least it's a reason for another detail job!) Thank god for the boogy wipes i just bought at Costco and I used the plastic bag from the Pirates Booty for a large garbage bag. Resourseful....I know.
- Put Violet's dirty diaper in a Starbucks Venti cup and Travis thought it was my tea and tried to take a sip. ...we were driving. I know....weird spot to put a dirty diaper, but it was either that, or the puke filled wipe bag. Anyways, lots of laughter. I mean, I really really laughed.
- Oh, and the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 came out. Holla.

- I have made it my goal to blog more. I read others, so why not contribute more to mine. It's been lonely.
- I have a new obsession with tea. I love it. I drink it all day long. I was out of tea the other day and the only kind I had left was "smooth move". It tasted great, just like "Sleepytime". Well, lets just say it lives up to it's name. The Chai Tea Keurigs are a nice little treat. Only 60 calories.
- Our house has been invaded by mice. Ahhh.....i know. So gross. Travis caught one coming through the fireplace. Seriously. Ew. Another reason why I want a new house, now!
- We've had a Wii for a few years now and have never used it. Until a few weeks ago...Cash was sick, we couldn't go and do anything, so we went and bought some games. Holy hell, I am obsessed. The Cabellas hungting game witht the rifle is my favorite. Cash and I play all day long. The trigger wouldn't work last night and it was if the world had ended, I was so sad. Also, Presley tears up the dance floor with Just Dance 3. It's hilarious and actually a pretty good work out. I work up a sweat.
- Speaking of new house. I want one so bad. We've outgrown this one by a lot. I've only got a few items on my "must have" list: a pantry so big that I can have a dance party in it, seperate walk-in closets because if you've seen my closet...it's a bit of a disaster and I need as much room as I can get, and a HUGE laundry room. With LOTS of counter space and a nice big sink.
- Violet has turned into a toddler. The toddler that has screaming, melt-down crying fits while laying face down on the floor. Yea. Btw....toddlers are the WORST, especially when you have 3 at the same time!
- I held baby Celine and almost for a split second I wanted another. I MISS babies. She's such a perfect little girl.
- So I've spent the past few days taking down Christmas decorations. I must admit, it makes me sad. All this preparation for the holidays and then it's over in one day! Iam already for next year. But, I think I need to plan a weekend spa retreat to help me recover from it. I am exhausted. But, it's nice to get back to a routine and a more simple/laid back life.
- Sushi, I wish Ellensburg had a good sushi restaurant. When I lived in Woodinville, Travis and I would meet my Dad and Maureen at Hana sushi every Wednesday. I miss it.
- I have been thinking a lot about my New Year resolutions. I don't think they are very realistic for me, since I am not very good at sticking to anything, so I am going to just try to be less stressed. Mostly with the kids. I am going to try to gain more patience and maybe not care so much about the little things. I want to be happy. I mean, I am happy, but just more visably so.
- Laundry. It's my nemesis. Seriously. NEVER ENDING. Hate it with a passion! Does anyone else feel like this? Once it's done, I feel like I've accomplished so much, then 15 minutes later, I have a pile. I HATE piles. I HATE folding. I HATE putting it away. You get the idea?
