I wish I could say that my absence from blogging has been because I had some big plans and was off doing glamorous things. Not so much. 

I woke up the day before Halloween with a cold and I STILL have it. Luckily it has seemed to affect me the worst, but it has made it hard to keep up with things. I have piles upon piles of laundry, people. Yuck!

Halloween was a little bit of a bust. The kids were cranky, I was sick and tired and Brandon had to work all night. Add the wind and rain to the mix ,and well, it was a little bit miserable. Luckily the kids didn't care that we only went to four houses and that my parents came to help out and brought food!
This was the only picture I managed to snap while out trick or treating!

I tried to rest as much as possible. but with Brandon's work schedule and life in general it just didn't happen. I tried not to let it get me down too much, though.

My mom and I went and saw Footloose, the musical at a local performing arts center. Despite the need to blow my nose every .2 seconds and some sound glitches, it was a fun time!

Sunday I had an out of town baby shower to go to, and even though I was still really tired I went because this is a good friend of mine and we only get to see each other about twice a year! Not enough!

Us girls have been friends since middle school!

Here is the diaper golf bag we made! Man, it was tough to make. Took quite a few attempts and this was the third version. :)

In other news, Jaxson got his first school picture back and I love it! It is his forced cheesy grin and it is so darn cute! It is a total reflection of him at this point.

I don't know about you guys, but I am seriously ready for this election to be over with! I am sick of the negativity on both sides of the party lines. Sometimes we all have to agree to disagree. No matter what you believe or who you vote for, the important thing is to vote! I can't stand when people complain about things yet they don't vote and let their voices be heard. Okay, end rant!


  1. So ready for the ads and fb rants to end too! Sorry your Halloween was a bust :( hope you start feeling better soon!

  2. I'm sorry you've been so sick, Ashley!! You are a trooper for pushin' on and going to the musical and baby shower - sounds so fun!! I love the diaper golf bag - so creative! You look awesome, gf!
    I hope you feel better very soon!!

    P.S. - Jaxson is adorable!!

  3. I hope you are back to 100% soon!

  4. I love Jaxon's school picture! Hope you feel better soon!

  5. I was just saying the same thing the other day, why or how can people complain about who won if they don't go and vote? It is mandatory here to vote, you get fined if you don't!
    Cute school pic, cheesy grin and all lol
    Hope you are feeling so much better now Ashley, having a cold sux :(
    And you have more patience than me for making that diaper bag lol, I would've given up quick smart!! xo
