Is it wine thirty yet?

Ugh.  My 4 year old is going to be the death of me.

Aaron is out of school, again today, for complaints of neck and stomach pain.  Normally this would alarm me, but this has become our daily routine in the past month.  At some point every week he complains that his belly and his neck hurt, I take him to the Doc, and absolutely nothing is wrong.  I know you're wondering why I keep taking him to the doctor if nothing is wrong, but I know my luck, and the time that I don't take him to see his Ped he'll totally be sick and need to be on antibiotics and I'll feel like mom of the year.

I'm sorry- I love him but I'm so over him.  We were already planning on going to the Doc this afternoon for Harper's 6 month shots, and now we have to sit on the sick side because of yet another one of Aaron's mysterious illnesses.  Now he's in full-on melt-down mode because I've told him we're going back to the doctor's office because he's "sick" and now he's claiming to be not be sick.  Aghhhhh!!!  Somebody save me!!

I used to be so smug before I had kids.  When everyone warned me about the "terrible twos, thunderous threes, ferocious fours," I would think "That won't be my kid.  My kid will be fantastic."  I wish I could slap that 27 year-old in the face now.  Let me just say, I was considering a third kid when I was living in La La Land up until a few months ago; at this point if I could schedule a hysterectomy I would.  OVER IT.

It's already one of those days, which I hate.  It's beautiful outside, I slept good last night, Scandal comes on tonight, I'm going out to dinner with some of my girlfriends tonight, my husband's working in Atlanta.....trying to focus on the positive here.

I need advice from parents that have been here.  The parents that have dealt with the toddler who tantrums about everything, pitches a fit at the drop of a hat, won't eat, complains about everything- please help me!  Give me advice to make it through this season!  I'm at my wits end with this kid!

Rant over.

Rainy days=pj's till noon

What a dreary Monday.  I don't mind it so much when I'm in pajamas drinking a cup of coffee, but it's such a pain when you're trying to run errands.  Aaron's glasses have officially bit the bullet- as in the nose-guard is gone.  Bless it.  After I pick him up from school we'll be headed out to get our fourth pair of glasses since he started wearing them in April 2012.  I know that sounds like a lot, but from what I hear that's great for his age.  Bless him.  I'm really hoping starting glasses this young we'll improve his vision so he doesn't have to wear them forever.  I don't care if he's only seven- when he tells me he wants contacts I will make sure it happens.

Tomorrow is his 4 year check-up.  He'll get a few vaccinations, too.  I made the mistake of telling him that he's going to go to the Doc to get his "big four year old shots" last night- bad decision.  I guess the words "big four year old" doesn't sound that great when "shots" are at the end of that sentence.  I promised him ice cream afterwards.  Who cares if we have ice cream for lunch?

 I haven't posted in days, but we were legitimately busy last week!  Between kid stuff, house stuff, and everything in between I didn't have time to sit down and blog at all.  Most of all, we were just enjoying the gorgeous and warm weather. 

I hosted my Nerium launch party this past Friday.  It went great!  I'm so pumped for this product and I really believe in it.  Y'all: it's a miracle worker.  No kidding.  I keep on saying this, but I swear it's botox in a bottle.  Here are some pics of Nerium's incredible transformations:

Just a couple of images of what Nerium can do. Visit my website at: for more info!

 I decided to attempt a wine and cheese party.  I had never done one before, and wanted to do something different than my usual buffalo dip and meatball apps.  After scouring Pinterest for ideas and proper "cheese etiquette" this is what I came up with:

Not too bad, huh?
 All in all, a successful evening with friends, and I landed a preferred customer!  What, what!

Also, this happened:

A friend of mine (thank, Micki!) posted a pic of Ryan Gosling leggings on my Facebook timeline and I, of course, was obsessed.  (Y'all know I'm a total Ryan G freak.  Ride or die.)  Soooo, I hit up Etsy this weekend where said leggings are sold, and decided to buy the tank instead.  (Leggings were $70/pop!)  HOLLA!!

Now, onto the goods:
  • ACM's: Didn't watch all of it because I'm not a huge country fan but these are my thoughts:
a) I'm sorry (actually I'm not) but Florida/Georgia Line is terrible.  They're perfect for Mama's Country Showcase on Griffin's North Expressway.  They could pull in a huge crowd there, no doubt.
b) Luke Bryan's not cute.  And he's cheesy.  And he twerks.  'Nuff said.
c) I thought T Swift and Miranda Lambert looked amazing.

And.....that is all.  I could only handle 2 hours before I turned the channel. 

Enjoy this rainy Monday!
