{Five on Friday}

I love this link-up! Lets be random for a bit...


I am so behind on blogging! It was Christmas, and then I was covering for a co-worker the week after which meant double the work and then I started this week off with a root canal! Busy, I tell you! I can't wait to get caught up and start blogging regularly again. I'm also feeling the urge for a new blog design. New Year, New Blog Design?


I mentioned above a root canal...yeah...so that happened! The actual procedure itself wasn't bad {things to those wonderful shots} but I've been in pain since! My whole left side of my mouth is sore. My gums, my cheek, my teeth. Ouch! And I have a really high tolerance for pain. It's better than a toothache, for sure...but the soreness is painful too! They started the root canal at 3:00 and I was done by 5:00. It was pretty entertaining that evening because I couldn't feel my face or my lip. I had to drink out of a straw and even that was pretty hard. Nate got a good laugh out of it. He tried to video me, but I wouldn't let him. I woke up after midnight and my face/lip was still numb! ha

So, Nate, his brother and I saw George yesterday! {no pictures because I am writing/scheduling this post on Wednesday} I am sure that we had a fabulous time and I can't wait to post about it here.


I haven't introduce my new nephew here yet. Blog friends, meet my precious nephew Hunter Cole. He was born 12/27 weighing 9lbs 13oz and 22 1/2 inches long! He is such a sweet and good baby. We just adore him!!!! And yes, he is definitely not helping with my serious case of baby fever!!!


Nate went back to work this Monday and Mason went back to school. And? I don't like it! I loved being able to walk into the living room and kiss them any time I wanted! I miss them like crazy and it's weird being home without them. But, on the other hand it's kind of nice to have a routine again. Mason did really well on Monday. He almost acted like he was ready to go back. Tuesday we had a little trouble...but thankfully that only lasted about 10 minutes. And today {wednesday} he did great again! I just love this boy so much. He's growing and talking more like an adult everyday. He uses words like 'actually' and 'practically' and such now. We like to take silly pictures in the morning in the cafeteria at his school...
