Ice cream for dinner?

Tonight I had ice cream for dinner.
Not the healthiest choice but a damn good one. 
When you're still living in a hotel & your lights have to be out when baby goes to sleep & that also means no cooking... You have no choice but to eat what's in the freezer.
That's the nice thing about being pregnant... You don't really look fat. You just look pregnant & more pregnant.

{It's always a good idea to not feel guilty or regret decisions like this. Embrace them & be happy.}


Hello, Toledo

Just like most other good things, they sometimes come to an end. LK got sent down from the major leagues a couple days ago so yesterday Levi & myself made the journey from Florida up to Toledo, Ohio. Luckily, husband was there to travel with us yesterday making things a lot easier for me since flying with a 1 year old & 6.5 month baby bump proved to be a little challenging- the climbing all over me while sitting in our seat part was not cool.
In coming up to Toledo I knew that we did not have a place to live. We are staying in a hotel for the next week in hopes that we can find a more permanent place to live In the mean time. Finding a month-to-month or a short term lease has been quite the challenge. It's not looking good so far but we are keeping our fingers crossed. Living in a hotel suite that includes a sitting area with a small kitchen & refrigerator wouldn' be so bad, especially since they have a laundry room & breakfast buffet every morning. Insert a baby & that makes things a lot more complicated. Last night we ate our dinner huddled up on the floor in the bathroom area, we used a laundry basket as our table & hid from Levi so that he would go to sleep. It took him an hour and a half. After standing up in his pack-n-play, talking to us & laughing at us he finally fell asleep. I'm really hoping tonight goes a lot smoother.
While half of our belongings are still in storage at the baseball field & we have no toys to play with, you can just find us taking frequent walks around the outdoor shopping mall across the street. Thank goodness there is a Starbucks & children's play area.

Yours truly,


For the love of the game.

Days like today are extra special. Husband got the exciting news that he made the Tigers opening day roster! News like this makes my heart explode with happiness for that guy of mine. His dedication & perseverance is on some kind of other level. I don't really know how he does it, but I admire him for it. Hard work pays off.
I couldn't be more proud of the father that my children have as a role model.
For the times that I'm frustrated with our situation...
Half of our stuff at my parents house, half of our stuff on a truck to Detroit, some of our stuff packed in our Tahoe. Trying to keep the white tile in the rental clean that we are moving out of with a drooling baby that gets into everything now & his dog sidekick, Rowdy. Packing- with a little boy that kindly helps me unpack at the same time. Trying to load a car with a tired, crying baby & an anxious pup. Hot (not the sexy kind), sweaty, and just wanting to get this done & be in the car with the AC blowing in my face. All of those frustrations so quickly fade when I get the news that I got this morning.
This is why he still plays baseball season after season. This is why he has so much love for the game. And this is why we will always be by his side supporting him & cheering him on.
