The Countdown of Days!

Viking Baby’s birthday is coming faster than I am ready for.  I don’t have many things left to do but at the same time I have everything to do. So what do I do? I sit on Pinterest and post on my blog instead of actually being proactive. I tend to do better when it is chaos time anyways.

So I had purchased these picture blocks for the tables at my wedding  years ago. I decided not to use them and tried to return them. Oriental Trading wouldn’t take them back so instead of throwing them out I kept them. Good thing because I am using them for the party. There are twelve blocks which works out perfectly for the twelve months of Viking Baby’s life!

I bought black chalkboard paint from my local Walmart to paint the blocks. Once they dry, add a second coat.

After two coats are fully dry, I used a white chalk pen (which I purchased at Hobby Lobby) to write numbers 1-12. I figure if the numbers don’t wipe off, I can always just paint them again to be reused.

Once I can figure out how to get my pictures from my Canon Rebel T3i on my macbook then I will be able to include pictures of what I am talking about in my posts. If anyone knows how to do this, please comment.

**I will add the pictures once I can get them onto my computer.

Time Out!

Whomever said life was easy needs to be thrown in time out so they can think about what they said. Taking it one day at a time is what they should have said instead. So after receiving our new table, to only have to have a replacement sent because the tabletop was smashed, it is up and functional. Well as functional as it can be with only two chairs assembled. Now the house looks like a tornado came crashing through, one table and chairs half assembled while the old table and chairs sit half unassembled.
Viking baby’s birthday is coming up, hitting the big 1! Needless to say I am not really ready for this. This past year as gone by wayyyy too fast! I am already counting down the days until the party only to freak myself out that everything might not be ordered, shipped, and delivered in time. I know what you may be thinking, its only his first birthday and he wont remember it, BUT I will and that is what is the most important right now.
So I need to stop for a minute and state that setting up and figuring out this whole blogging thing is confusing at times. I guess I will just have to stop writing this and figure this out.

The Very Beginning!

I will start out with saying Hello! I am extremely new to this whole blog thing and honestly it scares me a little bit. I have always known that you should never put anything in writing that you wouldn’t want anyone else to see. I came up with the idea to start a blog because this seems cheaper than therapy. I am not the type of girl to express her feelings openly and that may be the reason why I have such bad anxiety.

Here’s a little about myself, my name is Jess, I am married to a marine and we have the most handsome son. For the sake of keeping my son out of the publics harshness, I will refer to him as a few different names such as Viking baby, handsome, little one, etc. I am a stay at home momma by choice. I am also in direct sales, which once I review my companies policies I will hopefully let you all know what those are too.

I am hoping this blog helps me with my anxiety and lowers my number of panic attacks. I know that I could go see a doctor and have them prescribe me medication but I refuse to take them. I have already been there, had the prescription filled, got home and never taken one pill from that bottle. The side effects to those medications give me even more anxiety!

This blog will be my outlet I will use to just say or do anything that makes me happy. One blog could be about a book I read while another one could be about a meal I made, then the next one could be just me talking about anything. I don’t want to have a blog where its only about one topic. Stay at home mommas do so much in a day that our brains can get so scattered so I hope that by me having this blog it helps a fellow momma stay sane while chasing her little ones around.

I know that since I am just starting out that I will have anyone even reading these. But if there is anyone who will/is following my blog and you have any thing you want to ask or want me to write about, just let me know.

With love,

Jess
