And She's Not Even 16....

Attitude. That word has become a very popular one, here at home. I'm talking about my sweet, booger of a little girl. MAN, she is something else lately. The only plus side is that her vocabulary is amazing. I feel like she is talking a lot and understanding what she is saying. BUT sometimes what comes out of her mouth is pure attitude.
Here are some examples, enjoy:
  • Mommy, fix it now Now NOw NOW NOOOW!
  • Hush Mommy Hush!
  • NO!
  • Claire (or I) do it. Not mommy (or daddy/papa/nana).
  • Mommy (daddy) go get it.
Of course I love her to the moon and back but I am seeing a clear picture of what her teenage years will be like. I know my mom has said, "I hope she was just like you". I understand I wasn't always the nicest mouth teenager so I am hoping that through how I was, I will understand what Claire is going through. Although it will be so annoying and  I will probably want to shake her a few times, I will be able to take a deep breath and no, this too shall pass!

I'm just glad she's SO cute!!

Hello Fall

Things I want, during the fall months:

1. To make it to the apple orchard. It's an awesome place. They have the cutest kids area, yummy you-pick them apples and the tastiest pumpkin donuts. 
2.  Drink a ton of pumpkin spice latte's with skim milk.
3. Buy a couple of new warm and cuddly sweaters.
4. Get new black, over the jean boots.
5. To go to this awesome pumpkin patch in Illinois. Claire will love it, especially the pig races!
6. Go to Galena, which we do every October. There it always feels like "fall".
7. Bonfires and making s'mores!
8. Watch football - Go Bears!
9. Find the perfect Halloween costume for Claire.
10. Take as many nightly family walks as possible - wearing a hoodie of course.
11. Sleep with my windows up. I love a nice cool breeze when I sleep!

Fall is my favorite! I hope you all have some great Fall plans because you know here in Illinois Fall will not be here long. We will probably have a few summer days, then some more fall days and finally we will be stuck with winter! I know that I'm going to cherish this amazing fall days!

Weekend In The Dells

For Labor day weekend, we took a little trip. A much need little getaway. We were planning on camping but since the weather had different plans for our area, we decided on going to Wisconsin Dells. We got a great deal on a fireplace suite at the Great Wolf Lodge. The indoor water park was fantastic, the best part only guest of the resort could use the water park so it wasn't too crowded at all. It was perfect for little kids and "big" kids like Eric and I. We spend majority of our time at the water park but we did venture out for dinners and sightseeing. Wisconsin Dells is a pretty cute/fun town.
Here are some pictures from our little vacation. If you are ever in the Wisconsin Dells area, I highly recommended staying at the Great Wolf Lodge. You will not be disappointed!

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing Labor day weekend! 3 day weekends are the best!
