HOW ON EARTH IS IT NOVEMBER? Sorry, slight freak out!

I'm such a bad, bad blogger!! I wish there was a fantastic app on my phone, then I would post more. There's a blogger app, but i've tried it and hate it. I'm just never on my computer anymore. I work and then relax. I'm always on my phone though! *Sigh* I'm sorry!

Halloween this year was fantastic! Liam is 16 months old so he could understand a little bit. We carved pumpkins about a week ago. We found him a cute dragon costume and he loves it. We met with my friend (who has a son about a month or month 1/2 older than Liam) and we went to this old folks type home. They had a few of them sitting at tables, passing out candy. I'm sure they love seeing the little kids and I thought Liam could get used to trick or treating that way. After, we came back to our place, ate dinner and then headed out. We hit up quite a few houses and the boys loved it! They both got the hang of it quick! Liam walked almost the whole hour or so we were out and held his bucket too! He only cried once and that was when it broke so he couldn't hold it that well and I had to take it away. :( I felt so bad. He had such a great time though! I held his hand and took him to the door and he would just stand there and hold his bucket. He would even grab the candy and put it in there when I told him too. We let him have a little bit when we got home. All in all, he had a blast and so did we!

After that was all over, I went out for a few drinks and some dancing in my costume with friends. I had a good time, it was nice! I didn't want to get up for work though ha. How was your Halloween? I can't wait until next year!

It Has Been A Long Time Blogger Friends...

I just want to say that I haven't been on here in a while very long time, seriously. I miss blogging so much, but I have been ridiculously busy with work. I work 40 hours a week and when I am not working, I sleep. When I'm not sleeping, I see my family; that is about it. I barely even see friends anymore because I am always exhausted. I hate it and I am currently looking for work else where. On a better note, the husband has signed up for college. He's late,but he has his classes ready to go. We shall see how this goes with him at school and me at work. Just a couple years ago, the roles were switched (turn on panic mode).

I haven't been on so long that I realize I need that oompf. I need need to know some read this blog. By all means spread my blog around. Maybe that would get me in the mood to write more. I'm so thankful for those out there who still pay attention. 

I'm still couponing, still wanting to blog about my baby big boy, Liam. Did I mention that he is FIFTEEN months old; fifteen...1-5 months old. I am in utter shock. Where did my little baby boy go? I barely remember when he was an infant. He is so crazy now. You thought he was crazy before? Well now, you don't even know! He's hyper, running all over the place and climbing on evvvverything - seriously like the stove drawer and the couches - it's nuts. He had a huge growth spurt too; he's now 22.5 lbs and 30 1/4 inches long. He jabbers on like crazy and the doctor said he wouldn't be surprised if he surpassed the amount of words he should be saying by 18 months. He still only has eight teeth, but it looks like a couple more will come in sooner or later. He's definitely been teething again lately. He has been working on his throwing (we have angry bird plushies he likes to throw, go figure HA) and he has been working on how he eats. We now finally use toddler bowls, plates, forks and spoons. He loves using it and I am glad; it's a big transition from using his hands. He also loves his straw cups! Don't even get me started on his eating habits; he eats more than we do!

Work is...okay...horrible ...going. It is basically there to pay the bills for now. I liked it at first but now it's just annoying. We do the same thing every day and we all get treated horribly. Management is awful. I do love the people I work with though, aside from some drama. I crack up laughing almost every day! This job is really hard on me; I am always sore and in pain. I need a better nights sleep, but I would need to waste my day doing that. Instead, I wake up no later than 10am so that I can play with Liam before work. My shift is always 4pm-1am, which isn't too terrible. I am definitely looking for other work though. At least I am proud to say that I have lost THIRTY-TWO pounds so far...32...3-2!! This is fantastic for me and I hope to keep it up. It is all thanks to my job and our Paleo lifestyle (which we cheat once a week or so and I am still losing weight). 

Now for a photo overload!

From when I lost about 20lbs (now at 32+ lbs lost)...this is embarrassing for me!

Finally - his first haircut!! He looks like a big boy now!
I'm going to try harder to keep up with blogging! I miss it; I miss getting into my own world and typing about anything - even if others didn't care to read it! Stay tuned blogger world!
