A little bit of this, a little bit of that!

I am starting to come to the realization that I have a problem...a grocery buying problem. It seems like everytime I talk to someone on the phone and they ask "What are you doing" I am always headed to the grocery store. Granted, we go through a lot of necessity items like milk, yogurt, fruit, etc...but I sometimes go a little overboard. Just a little.

Meet my freezer! Eesh!

And this may not look too bad, but let me tell you...every inch of this freezer is full! And somehow I always feel like we have nothing to eat! My pantry is just as bad! Not kidding.

As you know my friend, Steph, is moving. So last night I was helping her move some stuff when I heard her talking to Robert. I caught the tail-end of the converstation, but heard her offering a bunch of frozen veggies and stuff that she was needing to get rid of. Of course, Robert says "Have you seen our freezer?" But, I tell her that I can make room. :) Needless to say, I came home with about 3 bags full of groceries. And I somehow made room. ha!

This week I am trying to switch out our winter clothes to make room for our summer wardrobe! As I am going through Thompson's clothes, I am realizing just how many outfits that he did not get to wear. I am always the one that thinks that he has nothing to wear, so I buy more. Well, atleast HALF of his closet still had tags on them. I will admit that a lot were still a little to big, so I am crossing my fingers that they won't be too small for next winter. But I really need to get him some t-shirts to wear for this summer... :)

I am anxious for the pool to open next month. I think Thompson will have a blast. Thankfully, it is right across the street from the house so we don't have too far to go! We played on the playground yesterday and it is unbelievable how I can see him developing more and more each day. He is just getting so big. His favorite thing to say right now is "Uh Oh!" And let me tell you...everything is an uh-oh to him! But it really is cute. And he loves trying to sing his ABC's. Yes, I know, my child is gifted! :)

On a side note... Robert's brother, Jeremy, is deploying at the beginning of April to Afghanistan. He will be gone for about 7-8 months, so please keep him and his family in your prayers.


  1. My freezer looks exactly the same way! My mom tells me I also am always at the grocery store! And I'm like "well we don't eat out so we need to eat"! I will pray for Jeremy, may god watch over him over the deployment just like he did our husbands last year. HUGS!

  2. Your freezer is jammed! At least you know you won't go hungry? I always like to have food around :) I will be praying for your brother in law, I know how deployment is and it is hard! He's in my prayers!
