Celebrity Sightings

I'm not one to skip a linkup. Especially with my BFF Holly (shhhh, don't tell her I said that! She doesn't know she is my BFF yet) And let's just go ahead and say that I am in with all the famous celebs. I know what they are doing on a daily basis thanks to InTouch Weekly magazine. I know their kids' names (Hi Apple!) and I know what they did last summer. (wink, wink)

I have so many celeb stories, that this blog will have to be in number format. And just in case you are wanting my autograph since I have so many famous BFFs, well, get in line.

Try to keep up.

1. First up, Hank Williams Jr. I saw him in the grocery store in Paris, TN when I was little. I was so shocked I couldn't believe it. I also had no idea who he was or what he did until my brother told me. And then I walked right up to him and I said "Hank, whhhhhhy do you driiink?" And then he wrote a song about it. You might have heard it.

2. Justin Timberlake. I found sexy so he could bring it back. He owes it all to me. No but forseriousness, he is my cousin's cousin. Like I'm her cousin on her mom's side and he is her cousin on her dad's side. Or something like that. Small town living, we are all related somehow. Him and Brittany and then him and Cameron and then him and Jessica (first name basis only, duh) spent weekends at my cousin's house when they were in town. So we are practically related. He won't forget where he came from....and neither will I because I've driven by his childhood home at least 432,895 times.

3. Nick Lachey. Before 98 Degrees got big (ahahahaha, did they ever get big?), they performed at my cheerleading camp when I was in the 10th grade 400 years ago. And I'm not one to brag, but Nick looked right at me and waved. He knew it was true love and that I knew the difference between tuna and chicken, but he settled for J Simpson cause I was already taken.

4. My mom. Not to be confused with your mom. She is in the newspaper just about every week in my town. I've hung out with her several times. This makes me indirectly famous, correct me if I'm wrong.

(source) my mom is the one on the right, in case you were wondering.
5. Carrie Underwood. We hung out once. Me, her, and about 20,000 of our closest friends. But then she left town to continue on her tour. She dropped me like those 20 lbs she dropped once she won Amercian Idol. And I'm not bitter about it at all.

6. J Biebs. I know some of you are going to freak over this. I'm looking at you Mel. But when he was in town, I was at Hobby Lobby in my mom jeans, and he was across the street at the mall. So basically, we were breathing the same air. I think I heard him call me a MILF, but I can't be sure. My daughters even proposed to him that same weekend. Coincidence? I think not. Good taste runs in our family. He is now their Buzz Lightyear and will fly across the globe to see them. That's what marriage is about kids.

7. Jillian Michaels. She comes to my house every day. Enough said.

8. Channing Tatum. My BFFs and I dated him before anyone else even knew he was famous. Think Step Up One. I mean, that's before he met his wife. We even googled him on the reg and found out that he was previously a stripper, and called him and told him he should do a stripper movie. I mean, I'm not taking ALL the credit for that one, but well, ladies, you're welcome. Don't worry, we already called him and told him to make Magic Mike 2.

9. Bon Qui Qui. I know what you are thinking, I saved the best for last. If you don't know who she is, you should google her. I see her everytime I go to a fastfood joint. And she is never nice to me. One day though, one day we are going to be friends. And she will not cut me then.

I feel like there should be a 10, but in order to get a 10th story, I would have to make something up. And this is a serious blog with serious readers so I just won't stoop to that level.

Now follow the button to see if any other bloggers have met more famous people than I have....I seriously doubt it. But you should still probably read. :)

Happy Friday Famous People!!!

Nasty Yucky Smoothies that Don't Taste Half Bad

Annnnnnnd the award for longest blog post title of the day goes to.......

I'm linking up with Shanna today to talk about whatever I want.
Just click on her name to find some more fun blog posts!
I have several random things that I want to talk about today.

1. I hate when my husband is right.
He warned me yesterday to be careful with my working out.
You see, he witnesses my life first hand. #luckyhim And he knows that when I get all psycho with my workouts, he is the one who has to listen to me complain and has to rub my sore parts.
And then.......this morning, my knee started to hurt. And then my elbow. Grrrrrrr. This is why I always end up stopping my workouts. I love to workout, but somehow I have this old lady body that can't handle it.
I tore my ACL playing basketball in the 10th grade {like 458 years ago} and I just haven't been the same since. {single small tear runs down face}
It's why I've always wanted to be a runner, but can never get too far into it. I also get tennis elbow from doing that weird?
I got lots of great feedback on my post yesterday, so what's up guys, who has some advice for bad knees and bad elbows? Help a sister out.

2. smoothies.
Now, I'll be the first to tell you that what you are about to see looks disgusting. And I'm not going to tell you that it's delicious or anything crazy like that, but it is pretty healthy and it does fill your stomach.
My husband got me hooked on smoothies. I use to want to vomit just looking at everything he put in them, but now I am just like him. I'm sure some people can't drink just anything, but I totally can. I learned this in college. 
There is no real recipe. It's just a little of this and a little of that.
This morning I had greek yogurt, liquid egg whites, blueberries, a banana, peanut butter, chia seeds, Fiber One cereal, protein powder, and a few pieces of ice all blended up. Sounds delicious right? Wait til you see how it looks.....

At least my food pictures don't make you hungry!
Once it's blended up, it looks nice and smooth like this:

And yes, I let that tiny bit ooze over just for you to get a good feel for it. lol Now chug that baby down, chase it with some Diet Dr Pepper and you are finished eating breakfast! How else could you get all that down real quick in the morning? I know I couldn't. My husband even adds spinach to his....I'm not THAT brave yet.

3. Selfies.
When you wake up at 4 to work out and your kids can't get to school until 7:15 {we don't carpool on Wednesdays so I have to actually take them to school}, you have plenty of time for selfies.
Even K&A like to get in on the action.
You should know that I had on a super cute dress, tights, and ankle booties for work this morning. Then I decided that if I were to meet myself in an alley, I would ask myself if I were knocked I put on my hoodie and jeans. I'll save my cute dresses for days that I MUST dress up and for when I am 50 lbs lighter a little bit thinner.
Until then, I'm keeping it gansta in my hoodie.

I just wish I had a uniform to wear every single day like these little ladies. {Even though they despise them...}

Side ponytails are the best!
As are cowgirl boots with a uniform. You just can't go wrong.

Now if only my leggings were that loose on my legs!

Happy Wednesday People! Thanks for reading!

Let Me Tell You How I Am Changing My Life

It's tell me about it Tuesday!
Helene in Between
So let me tell you about how I am working to change my life.

First up, running.
I have been running off and on for awhile now, but I'm finally motivated to be a runner. Better yet, a jogger. Yet, I'd say that's more accurate.
You see, I start off running like a fat girl headed towards a twinkie stand. But then after about 2.5 minutes of that, I run so slow that I feel like I am running in place. Going nowhere real fast and getting out of breath. It's okay though, jogging gets you to the finish line too.
I'm on week 5 of my couch to 10K program. Once I finish this, I am going to start my half marathon training......and that's just plain scary.
I'm not sure why, but yesterday I looked ahead to see what I was in for. Well, let me just tell you, it's not pretty. By week 14 (the last week), the plan says warm up 5 minutes then run for 60 minutes. Wowzer. That seems difficult, but not impossible.
I've read too many blogs where the girl said that she could barely run for 2 minutes when she first started and now she is running a half marathon. I want to be that girl. And I want that dang 13.1 sticker for my car. So it's time to stop talking about it and start doing it.
Who's with me?!

Next up, 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels.
Now, I'm not gonna lie to you, I've attempted this 30 day thing at least two, maybe three times. I can't seem to finish it. I get bored with doing the same thing and I get sick of seeing Jillian's face every day. But, once again, I have read too many blogs where people have had GREAT results with this video. It works if you stick to it. I'm not saying I'm going to do it every day, but I am saying that at least 5 days a week I am going to do some type of workout video or bootcamp style workout. I own all the Insanity workout videos too. It's funny though, I sweat like a garden tool in church when I do Insanity, but I'm never as sore as I am after I do the 30 Day Shred. And the Shred is much shorter so I will probably stick with it. I have also realized that the only way that I can fit this into my day during the week is to wake up super early. We are talking 4 to the AM. Or more like 4:15. I'm gonna feel it out to see what works best for me. This morning I did 4:15 and I had plenty of extra time...which is why dinner is in the crockpot, everyone's clothes were ironed, and my kids were blessed with a sweet mom to wake them up instead of a "I'm leaving in 5 minutes whether you are awake or not" type mom that I normally have to be. I know not everyone is a morning person...I learned this on instagram yesterday (follow me there @mrsloyoung). I'm a morning person. Or I have been before. It takes several mornings to get in the groove, but once you get in the groove, it feels amazing to wake up and not be running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Not to mention, the house is soooo quiet in the morning and I hate getting off work only to think about how I must visit Jillian before bedtime. So, this is the plan...hopefully it will last.

Next up, walking at work. I have been doing this since last year. At work we have a track inside our building and everyone walks. I get two breaks a day, I walk one mile each break. So, this is nothing new, but something I am going to stick with. I have a walking partner (Hi Amy!) and I really enjoy doing this as a break from work each day. It doesn't feel like exercise because I don't break a sweat, but I know those miles add up. Not to mention, it's always fun to slap on tennis shoes with your dressy work clothes except I only dress up like once a month.

Now, diet. Ehhhh. We all know this is the hardest. Not to mention I have a husband who is trying to bulk up this winter. Meaning he eats everything in site. And he always buys me surprises in the form of candy or treats. Who needs flowers?! I have a major sweet tooth. And lately my body is programmed into thinking that it needs something sweet every single time it finishes a meal. I know it will take work to get my body to lose this mentality, but let's just say it is a neverending work in progress. I also am a VERY picky eater. So it's really hard for me to find healthy foods that I like. I have noticed lately that my kids are picking up my bad eating habits though so I have to make some changes for them. I need to be a good example for my kids.....and if I can't manage to eat a nasty piece of spinach then dangit, I can just put it in the blender and drink it. I have learned that you can put pretty much anything in the blender and call it a smoothie. I even bought a spaghetti squash yesterday...has anyone ever cooked one of these? If so, please help a sister out! I have no clue what I am doing, but FH and the girls think I'm crazy so I need it to taste like the
Finally, water. It's funny. I could see an infomercial about some liquid stuff you could drink and it is guaranteed to make you lose weight and I would spend an outrageous amount of money on it because so-and-so lost weight drinking it and if it can work for her, then I can do it too.......but I don't drink water. It's free and it's guaranteed to make you lose weight if you just guzzle it all day long. So, cheers to water. Let's drink to that.

Oh and back to running.
Just because this picture is true, doesn't mean I should not run.

(source )

That is just SOOO accurate.
Also, so I have this neighbor. One day at band camp, I ran by his house at night. It was dark. He was outside sitting on a bench. He scared the mess out of me when he stood up and starting walking towards me. Apparently he was waiting on me. That conversation went a little like this:

Him: Hi. I wanted to talk to you. I see you out here walking all the time. I walk too and I can't get my wife to walk with me. If you ever want to walk together, I can get that weight off you.
Me: You stupid #$*^&$% $*%&@#!

Ok, well I didn't exactly say that...but I mean really?! You can get this weight off me? Now everytime I go by his house I run faster and flip him off.
My husband seems to think he was hitting on me. Suuuuuure you want to "run together". lol I think he was just a middle age man with a bad choice of words who was looking for a walking partner.
What do you think?
Either way, he did not find himself a new walking partner.

Now, let's get my new life going here. I feel like by putting pen to paper typing it out and telling all you people, I have to actually stick to it. If you see me slacking, feel free to bust me out in front of everybody. If you want to join me, holla! I can use the extra motivation. And when I lose weight and start taking 50 million selfies and putting them all over the interweb, don't hate.
After all, I didn't buy fat girl jeans so I could grow out of them. I would much rather have them sitting up in the attic gathering dust than my cute not even in style anymore skinny clothes.

Here goes nothing......

I'm Just not as Cool as You Guys

Obviously, it's monday so it's time for the weekend update.

But first, I'd just like to say.....I've been reading about a bajillion blogs this morning and well, I just don't feel as cool as some of the blogs I read! Man, you heifers are hilarious and it makes my morning to read the funny mess you write.
Thank goodness we are all "friends" so I can pretend to be cool.
And thanks for making me feel like I need to step up my blogging game.

Ok, so back to the weekend update.
We had a laid back weekend that consisted of eating too much food, laughing tons, running not enough, and cleaning and decorating mixed in with a little shopping.

I discovered on Saturday that since we recently bought a house and made the move from an apartment, our Christmas decorations are definately lacking. Our tree is a midget can be referred to as a "little tree". And our ornaments are 90% somebody gave me this or my kids made it so I have to love it type ornaments.
Since our tree is so tiny {and size does matter}, we have decided against my bettter judgement to get a real tree this year.
Our tiny tree and minimal decorations just won't cut it for the keg party  big Christmas party we are having at our house this year.
Stay tune to find out if a squirrel jumps out of our Christmas tree (think A Christmas Vacation horrible live tree with the squirrel) cause that's my biggest fear. Well, that and having to vacuum at least 45 times per day and remembering to water the dang thing. {Which I totally won't do but FH will, and I'll still think about it....}

We also decorated the mantel. And by decorated, I mean that it has some garland and lights, but it looks really pretty in the dark at least....

I like to think my Christmas decorations allow me to "keep it real"....not everybody is a freaking interior designer and can put some dang pine needles up and make the house look AMAZING. Either way, Santa will still be visiting so whatevs.

Also on our weekend list of things we did was run over the basketball. Yep, you read that right.
It takes pure talent to get a ball stuck up in your tire.
And that's what we did.

I thought FH was going to shoot me when he was freaking out that our car was messed up and I asked him to stop so I could take a picture. But luckily, he is the husband of a blogger so he knows how important a story and a picture can be.
No balls were harmed in the making of this story.

And neither was my car.

Last night around 6, after we got home from the grocery store, I got an email from K&A's teacher reminding us to not forget our salt dough for the volcano they are making in class.
Awesome. It's due tomorrow she said.
So off FH went, back to the store to get the makings for the dough.

The girls had a lot of fun making it and I had zero fun cleaning it up.  Luckily we made the same stuff last year, so we are getting pretty good at making it...not to mention, we already had the $10 bottle of Cream of Tartar that is needed...I mean, who the heck keeps cream of tartar in their house?!

The girls are being super nice to each other, hugging, holding hands, and just getting along in general. I wondered if the Apocolypse was approaching, but then I overheard them say that they were "pretening like they liked each other" {direct quote} so that Bella the Elf would make an appearance in our house. Nothing like an elf and Santa Claus to get kids to behave. {excuse the evil red eyes}

We have a very busy week ahead of us. Monday: basketball practice, Wednesday: softball pitching lessons, Thursday & Friday: Christmas play practice. Saturday night: stuff my fat tail into a cute dress for a wedding. All week: starving myself to prepare for Saturday night. {We'll see how that works out for me....}

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Closed Businesses on Black Friday

Today, I'm at work.
Poke my eye out with a rusty butter knife.
All businesses outside of retail should be closed today.
Am I the only one working? From the echo of my keyboard, it sounds like it.
You see, I have this problem called I like to use my vacation time every Friday. Like that one time I came in and only worked 3 hours. It's a really bad problem.
Recently, I have decided that I need to start saving up my vacation time for my future unborn child.
Why did I decide this in the holiday season?
No clue.
But I did, so I'm here.

I didn't go shopping yesterday.
Let's face it, I knew that I would already be grumpy about coming to work today so I didn't want to add to it by staying up all night.
Big mistake.
Once again, I felt like the girl that was sitting home on prom night.
So next year, I'm doing Black Friday big.
We're talking making black tshirts for our group to wear, oh yeah and getting a group together.
Maybe even having a few cocktails beforehand just to make it interesting.
Who's with me?!

Since I'm at work today, I wore elastic pants. As in, not cute leggings, but workout pants. Fo real.
I figure if I have to be here, I can at least be comfty.
So, I really did wear yoga pants to work
Also, I woke up to swollen eyes, almost like I was allergic to my eye makeup...but as you can imagine, my face had to match my outfit today so obviously I hardly have any makeup on.
Gosh, swollen eyes, workout clothes, little makeup?
I know what you're thinking....this is your favorite fashion blog around and you want pictures?! Or not.

Speaking of elastic pants, I had a tiny bit of a meltdown yesterday on Thanksgiving Day. You know when you want to look all cute but you realize you need to lose about 50 lbs but don't think it's possible to do within the next hour? So you stuff yourself into every outfit that you have and NOTHING looks cute. And your poor husband just kind of looks at you like you're crazy? Yeah, that's the kind of meltdown I had. It wasn't pretty. But it's just necessary sometimes.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving...and that at least a few of you have exciting stories/comments to share...I am, after all, going to have the longest day in the history of working on Black Friday.

Happy Friday Friends!

Chicken Minis Make the World Go 'Round

Today I am thankful for:
{in no particular order whatsoever}

1. chicken minis. Most amazing things EV-VA.
Totally worth being 10 minutes late for work this moring.

2. my husband/best friend/workout partner/coolest freaking guy I know. so so so glad this man is in my life and I know that even after we have been married for 50 years, we will still act like teenagers that can't stop grinning at each other. {don't be mad that chicken minis came before you, I said no particular order}

3. hooded sweatshirts

4. Red Bull, Instagram, my {ancient} iPhone, and my new car

5. my job. I kinda hate it some days but I really love it. I took a HUGE risk and a pay cut to go back to school as a single mom. it was risky and I was scared, but it paid off and now I live 15 minutes from work and I can run over to the girls' school to eat lunch with them if I want. Cheers to my second career and a smart decision.

6. willpower. that I SOMETIMES have. like last night when I went to McAlisters and got water instead of sweet tea. I know what you are thinking, this is just crazy. "it's like you got peanut, you ain't got no butter" McAlisters and sweet tea go together like pigs and a blanket, but well, I'M TRYING PEOPLE.

7. my kids. if you haven't met them, you should know that they are hilarious. I'm pretty sure most of my facebook friends friended me because of my funny quotes of the day. I post them because the most random stuff comes out of their mouths that I can't possibly keep it to myself. they are loud, argue a lot, whine a lot, and always leave every house in the light on. But my life would be completely boring without them.

8. blogging. holy smokes people. I never knew blogging could be so fun. that I could make friends on here that I feel like I actually know. that I could wait by my email for a blogger to talk to me like a school girl waiting by the phone on a boy to call. it's fun, and entertaining and I love it.

9. ummmm hello, new followers. I finally reached over 200 yesterday and that made my day!

10. family. enough said.

11. obviously there are at least eleventy billion more things I have to be thankful for, but these were just on my mind right now. :)

Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday today.

Happy Wednesday!

Tell Me About It Tuesday

Helene in Between
It's that time again.
You know, time for me to run my mouth and you pretend like you are dying to listen to me tell you about random shiz.
So, let me tell you about yesterday.
I let the girls stay at home alone. Well, they weren't alone because FH was there, but he sleeps during the day so they were pretty much alone. Just the two of them and their cell phone.
They called me 9 times before 11 AM. I'm not exaggerating.
1st phone call: "mom, what can I have for breakfast?"
2nd phone call: "mom, my tummy hurts"
3rd phone call: "mom, I'm so stupid. We popped popcorn so we could eat it while we watched our movie and then realized that it's only 8. can we eat popcorn this early mom?"
4th phone call: "mom, what time do we eat lunch?"
5th phone call: "mom, how many bagel bites can we eat?"
6th phone call: "mom, Kate hit me!"
7th phone call: "mom, Kate is asleep and I'm still hungry. Can I have a snack?"
8th phone call: "mom, can I have some ice?"
9th phone call: "mom, can I go outside to play?"
Is this real life?
Just to clear something up, the 8th phone call? yep, I laughed half the day because she called me to ask if she could have some ice. But then when we got home, she said "mom, that rice was good." So, yeah, I thought she said ice but she said rice.
Let me tell you about the girls getting ready for basketball season.
So we now have a basketball goal, but we haven't bought sand to hold it down. So you can only shoot if someone is sitting on it.
Sometimes it pays off to be the fat kid.
As I was sitting on it yesterday so that they could shoot, one shot went up and a screw fell out and hit the ground.
Ummm, hello?!
So, we immediately laid it down and couldn't find where the screw came out of. Now I am scared to death that it is going to randomly fall. I'm sure that will be a fun blog story to tell.
Their coach told them to practice dribbling and to run.
They followed her directions.

And even threw in some pushups.

Side note: I can't explain Kate's funny faces. Long ago she decided she would rather snarl or make goofy faces rather than smile. I just go with it. #pickyourbattles

Let me tell you about how yesterday, I figured out a way to eat fruit.
Hallelujah. This is the best thing since pretending like Nutella was nutritious. Even though I still do that.

Let me tell you about how yesterday, I found out that my EX husband reads my blog. Riddle me that people. I found out because apparently he told his 9 year old that he was mad about this post. According to him, he gives me way too much child support for me to force my child to pay for anything. I guess since he gives me soooo much money, that I should let K&A run wild and never follow any rules, not make them pay for anything, and not discipline them at all. I'm sure that would work out perfectly. Let me tell you about how this situation could be a whole blog post on it's own.

Moving right along with the next more important topic.

Let me tell you about how I finished Week 3 of my c210k program yesterday. Holy heck, week 4 is INTIMIDATING to say the least. But I'm ready for it!! And I hope that my poor legs can handle it.

Let me tell you about how I finally finished my book last night and there was a GREAT surprise ending. Love it!!!!

Oh, and one last thing, let me tell you about how we went around the dinner table last night to each tell what the #1 thing we wanted for Christmas was.....FH's response: a baby. :) I'm pretty sure he said it for brownie points, with that SNEAKY grin on his face. But let me tell you about how it worked!

I love Tell Me About it Tuesday.

Thanksgiving Linkup Time

Today, I am going to link up with a couple of my fav girls for a Thanksgiving linkup.

let the record show that I really wanted to do a vlog for this like all the cool kids, but well, I'm sure my work wouldn't approve.
And I have no idea how to video anything except from my 1G iphone.
1. What do you look forward to more: the food, football or parades?the food. duh, us chubbies love our food. :) and with a family as big as mine, there is TONS of food.

2. What is your favorite non-traditional Thanksgiving Day dish?I'd probably have to say my grandmother's rolls. I mean, that is kind of traditional, but that woman can cook some bread. dip it into your cream corn and you will be in a food coma almost immediately

3. After dinner, is it football or a nap?It's football and talking. Lots of talking. I don't get to see all of my family that often so we run our mouths while watching football. And this year, I have been informed that it won't be football, it will be Tigers basketball.

4. Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Which is your favorite float?Actually no, I don't. I'm not sure why, my kids just don't really like to watch it so we never do. Lame.

5. Where do you go to celebrate and eat your big meal? Who is there (family, friends)?
To my aunt's house with eleventy billion other people. family. My mom has 5 siblings so factor in all the spouses, kids, grandkids and you've got a party!

6. What is your favorite turkey day dessert?
I'm gonna have to go with anything chocolate. We always have different stuff but I head directly towards the chocolate. :)

Happy {almost} Thanksgiving Friends! I hope you have a lot to be thankful for this year, I know I do!

November is Black Month

I'm a little upset about the fact that Black Friday is moving in on Thanksgiving.
I mean, I love Christmas and shopping as much as the next person, but opening stores on Thursday is a little extreme. Next thing you know, we are going to have the entire month of November as black month.

Ok, rant over.

This weekend was a lazy weekend.
And I loved it.

Friday, I took off work early and went to the girls' Thanksgiving lunch at school. It was especially fun this year since the BFF was there with her daughter.
Those kids are sooooo entertaining.
And they might have had a little bit crapton of dessert.

Oh and something VERY important and life changing happend on Friday.
I bought boots. As in tall boots that are cute and fit my legs.
Even when I was skinny, I had big calves so this is great news!
Also, I got them at Payless.
What?! I know right.

Find here.

I only ventured in there because I was in desperate need of some retail therapy but didn't want to drive the 30 minutes to "town" for real shopping.
And dang, Payless has stepped up their game.
Man, I sound like white trash. But seriously, super cute boots.
And they were $60. Which is cheap in the boot world but cray cray in the Payless world.
I also bought these mini I'm a ballerina socks for my flats.
Seriously, how funny do these make my foot look?!

Haha, you're welcome.

Saturday morning consisted of me sending pics and texts to my BFF. I was trying to venture into the leggings and boots world, but I was a bit nervous. So of course I had to have opinions. Which leads to the typical bathroom selfie.

I also did my hair curly which I haven't done in for-ever.
And then I went shopping with my mom and stepdad...where I got an early Christmas present.
We need new carpet in our living room but I'm hoping that we will {sooner rather than later} have a baby in our house so I don't want to replace it right now.
So, we got a rug. I am in love with it and it is super soft.
Not to mention, we got a great deal on it.
Now if anyone spills anything on it, I will kill them.
That means you too FH.
