Full Plate Part 1: Episode 2

    Well hello my dear Dingleberries,

    I'm working on episode 2 of this whole "full plate" idea I had the other day? or was it week?  Man I hope it wasn't month?  I don't know, it doesn't matter.
    I'm in one of those ruts, with my life, marriage, job, faith. You name it, it's rutted out. 


    Full plate project was all things that are going on in the MB life at this time.  We know we covered the whole baby shower for Sister MB. OMG I'm glad that's over. I also have to cover the VBS but I'm holding off because I feel a rant and a giant poo flinging session coming with that one and just don't know if I should really go there.  ha ha.

    Original Post HERE

    Looking through the list there isn't much room to rant about.  Things have changed, things come and go. Of course.

    Had a huge argument yesterday over the phone and it's really left me at a loss. I've picked up thinking about old habits and things from my past.  Wanting to slip a little into the places I've been and came out of.  It's difficult sorting through thoughts and pains and ideas.

    It's some what overwhelming. So I'm forced to take it one day at a time, but I swear if this deep desire and stress to down a bottle of anything alcoholic doesn't go away tonight, I just may fall of the wagon.

    It's KILLING ME!

    -Hang in there

    Full Plate Part 1: Episode 1.2

    Happy MONkeyDay my dear Dingleberries.
    It's been a weekend, and OMG what a weekend! 
    But the good news, this post right here shall commence Full Plate Part 1 and we will soon be moving into Part 2.
    You're excited I know! 

    So I'd love to go into everything that I've been up to today, but I fear as though it would take away from this post, so I just won't. If we are friends on facebook, you already know what I've been up to today!

    So... I  started this post last MONkeyDay and as you can tell, I didn't quite finish this one up. So for those on the edge of their seats waiting for the conclusion..
    I'm going to fling this poo tonight.
    So sit back and enjoy a few photos

    My gift to the Mama To Be for the lil fella coming into the world,

    and after

    Not too shabby right?  I guess I gots some mad skills

    My gift for the guests :)

    It's a sugar scrub, you're not posta eat it!  Never figured out exactly why though. It's just sugar, veggie oil and some vanilla?  Any takers??

    Found a really cute idea for story book foods. This was pretty fun and definitely a must try again!

    Guess I had some baby shower skills after all.
    Can't wait to meet the lil guy and thanks everyone for taking the time to check out my crazy life :)

    -Hang in there my Dingleberries!

    Full Plate Part 1: Episode 1.1

    Baby Shower!!

    So I blogged a little yesterday about the upcoming shower. I'm excited to report, though terribly behind and feeling a wee bit overwhelmed, still.
    I've managed to nail down two of my crafts for the shower.
    Working on a baby cake and waiting on some tags for the jar.
    Check em out.
    ps.  Pinterest is pretty much AWESOME.

    A little note for baby Lou.

    and a little jar that I plan to finish filling with a sugar hand scrub as a little souvenir for all of the guest.
    I rock.
    I know!

    -Hang in there!

    Full plate Part 1: episode one


    I've mentioned in my last post, among other things, that baby shower for Sissy MB was on my list of MUST DO!

    You would not believe how incredibly overwhelming and time consuming and  
     it is to plan, not only a baby shower but crafts for Bible School all the while finding out that not only did you plan the shower on the same day as
    1.  early registration for said Bible School. BUT
    2.  Mr MB has also neglected to mention this is also the same day  as the nephews THIRTEENTH BIRTHDAY!  Ahhhhh a major milestone and guess who won't be there!! 

    So all of that being said and out there. The baby shower, though stressful, is also pretty fun.  I remember being the host of her first baby shower, TEN years ago.  WE didn't do any of these new fun ideas that they have these days.  I'm sure they had these ideas ten years ago, bbuuuuut I didn't do them. I should have done them.
    I'm doing them this year:
    • Cute little party favors, 
    • cheesy little games for everyone.
    • I've invited friends and family.
    • It's going to be quite the shindig!
    I'm pretty excited! But it's back to work!! 

    -Hang in there!!
