Almost over

The month of November has gone by super fast. I wish time would slow down. I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog but its my way of venting. I'm so tired of immature people in this town it's ridiculous!! Some major points I'd like to touch on:

* you're jealous of a five year old!!! Grow up that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of! Just because I can provide for my kids doesn't mean I buy their love! So grow up and get over it!!!! Some family members ought be left out for a reason, hence why i stick to my family.

*my dad had to have a surgery this past week and he's home doing great! I'm so glad it's gonna be a long recovery time with him home but I will help to the best of my abilities,just glad he won't be in the pain he was in.

*the kids are doing great :-) I can't believe how big they are getting. Sometimes I wish time would slow down.

I'm going to start living day to day and keep to my self. Life is to short to be mad and angry. I hate drama and immature people! I'll be here for my family but certain ones can leave me and my kids alone

Husta la vista October hello November

Well October has come and gone :-( so sad I love Halloween! But I love Turkey even more. All the yummy treats like pumpkin pie and pecan pie! My momma makes all these from scratch!!

Yesterday oct 31st, was very eventful! Middle kiddo had his finally autism evaluation yesterday. They really don't think it's autism( big sigh of relief) but they aren't a 100 % sure since he's only 2. They plan on evaluating him when he turns 3. They also think its just his lack of speech and that once he starts talking that he'll be okay but won't know for sure till he's 3.

My oldest has finished football. Thank goodness. He got a cool little trophy, his first one. He was uber excited :-)
Now we start basketball :-)

Baby girl had her first Halloween, which was fun. She's also running for baby miss Christmas :-) so lots of fundraising to earn money for her to win. As of today, (nov 1) she is five months old.

I'm still baking and making bows :-) when I have the time. But hey that's the crazy life of a mom of 3!

Review on Halloween Printables

    I got to do a cool review from, they sent me their Halloween printables. It took me a while to get it done do to my kids being sick. I thought since it was for Halloween, I would print some out and send it with my 5 year old to school. I print the Halloween color sheets.  There were a few color sheets that I would say not age appropriate. So I just printed the ones I thought would be good for 5 year olds.

There were some really cute coloring sheets. I was not able to be there when my son handed them out to his class, but his teacher told me they loved them. I would highly recommend

They do not have the halloween special anymore, but they will have other fun printables available, just go to

You can also check them out on twitter and on facebook

I was going to post a few pictures but I can not get them to show up.

Whoosh is how I feel

So the last week has been one of those weeks that makes you wanna say what the hell!! Seriously, it was one thing after another.

First off, I hate hate when you have an appointment and they run late getting to them or they stay for way too long. I understand that they have a job to do, but honestly I think the only one helping is the speech therapist. She's made some progress with my little monster ( the two year old). He's been using his signs and saying his words. It's super cute. The behavior therapist is suppose I say that loosely, helpme with his temper tantrums. But in all honestly, her sitting on her butt "trying" to get him to play isn't helping me. But we will see

Football season is almost over!! Yay!!! We have one last game, which is the Super Bowl! Thank goodness, but then basketball season starts. My 5 year old likes to keep us busy. Between school, football and gymnastics, I may end up with some white hair somewhere. But it's fun I love seeing him excited to do things :-)

Baby girl is doing great! Had her 4 month check up and she's growing right now track. She is a chunky monkey, but that's what happens when you breastfeed! Which I love! I've also been making her baby food, gotta love that baby bullet. It's awesome!!! He favorite food is apples and sweet potatoes. She's discovered her toes she loves to grab them and laugh.

Thursday the boys started running a high fever, so early Friday morning I took them to the dr. They both tested positive for the Flu A. Sucks big time we all had to take a medication so we wouldn't get it. They are finally all better and can go back to our normal routine!! Thank goodness!! I'm ready for Halloween!!!

life -october

  So this month has been alittle hectic. Football season is almost over for my oldest ( YAY). Then basketball starts. He keeps me busy with football, school, and gymnastics.  He's had to sell cookie dough, raffle tickets for a bbq pit and meal tickets for his school's fall festival. Which means I've been having to sell them for him.

 My other little monster ( two year old), is doing great in speech therapy, he's using signs and saying the word. He goes for a hearing test in November to see if he will need tubes. His final autism test is at the end of the month. We will see how that goes.

I recently discovered, I have a serious IPHONE CASE ADDICTION. Which I am okay with lol.
I am still making bows and tutus, which  I love doing. Since this month is halloween, I will be doing some fun Halloween baking.

The baby girl is doing great. She is four months now, eating baby food, rolling over from back to tummy and tummy to back.

but that is all for now we are off to football


I came across this page on ETSY one day and noticed this awesome iPhone cases, ( yes, I know ADDICTED). It was pretty cool, it was covered in all kinds of little trinkets for Halloween.

One day, the owner of the shop sent me a message, telling me she could make me a case like it. So here, I am in the mist of my addiction, thinking to myself, heck yea!!! I couldn't resist. I messaged her back to let her know  I would like one. Ever since then, she has been come a good friend. Who would have thought, making a friend while buying an iphone case.

Here is the first case I bought from her. It's awesome, I use it now, for HALLWEEN.

The shops name is grapefruit7625.  She's awesome. Her custom iphone cases are covered top, bottom, sides. I love it!!! i have bought a total of SEVEN, yes you heard me right SEVEN cases from her.

Here are a few of the others that I have gotten from here.

For reals though, whats not to love about these fun cases?

check her out on Facebook:

tell her des sent you! 

Review-Lavish by Nelly

  So as some people know, I have a huge addiction to iphone cases.  Seriously, it is bad, I have a ton. I could literally change my case every day of the week and still have some that wont be used. ( laughing to my self,  I need Iphone Case Addiction hotline)

   Anyways, I came across this lovely lady name Nelly, she makes custom iphone cases, jewelry, and more. Her facebook page is Lavish by Nelly. She is a sweetheart, and very creative. If you asked me, I would give her a million stars and likes on Facebook.

  I purchased 3 cases from her recently, ( one my niece has so i wasn't able to get a picture of it.)

These are the two that I use. I love them lots. When you email Nelly, she will ask you what type of design or them you want. She sends you the basic layout of the main pieces,  to see you that is okay with you. Once you pay her, she begins the fun process of glue all those tiny rhinestones on. ( I would go nuts trying to do that) 

She is a fast worker and shipper. I have never had a problem with my cases being messed up in the mail. She packages them pretty good. She's one awesome little lady. 

So, if you're in the need of a blinged out iphone case give Lavish by Nelly a shot out on Facebook.

She also has instagram at : LAVISHbyNelly

A recent purchase

 I recently made a purchase from The Mollie Shop, for a cute little doll that this awesome store owner made.  This was my first purchase from the shop. I bought a couple of bow and the doll. When I saw this Mollie Dollie, I fell in love. I just knew my baby girl would love it.

   The doll, I got is Wendy the Witch. She is the Halloween edition.  She is so cute and soft. Wendy has the same bows that I bought for my baby girl.

Since this was my first buy from the shop, I was not sure what they would look like. I was very pleased and happy when they came in. If someone asked me about the dollie, I would recommend The Mollie Shop, to anyone and everyone.

Be sure to check her out on her Facebook page and her Twitter page

Cook'n Recipe Organizer

   I got the chance to do a review over the Cook'n Recipe Organizer from DVO  I was super excited to see what this Cook'n Recipe Organizer was.  I love to cook and bake, but I hate having to search everywhere for my recipes. In the Cook'n Recipe Organizer, it organizes them so that it is easier to find what you are need.

   I can honestly say, that I would recommend the Cook'n Recipe Organizer to everyone I know. I personally, think as a mom of three kids that this comes in handy. It keeps my recipes from getting messed up by the kids, keeps them all in one spot and keeps them neatly organized.

   The following pictures will show you how this neat Cook'n Recipe Organizer works and looks.

When you start the Cook'n Recipe Organizer up, this is how it look. It may look alittle different on some computers, I use a Macbook Pro. 

This is how the Cookbook library looks like. It list all the categories that the cook book has to offer.  You can click on the different topics and check out the different topics. 

The Cook'n Recipe Organizer, has a feature where you can add your own personal recipes too it. I personally love this feature! 

If you would like to check out the Cook'n Recipe Organizer, look for their facebook page at or their website 

I give this awesome Cook'n Recipe Organizer 4 awesome stars!!!!!!

Weekend recap

So Saturday was some what eventful! It rained all morning. My poor 5 year old has a cold and had to go out in it to play football. ( mommy fail I should have kept him home!) He had fun though!

So I've been just hanging out with the kiddos trying to relax!!!

Look for an awesome baby food making post tomorrow

What a week!!!!!!

So this week went by fast and furious!!!!!  My week in a NUT shell

On Monday, we really didn't have much to do. My oldest had gymnastics and football practice, which is normal for a monday. I also got my pre-ordered copy of the AVENGERS!!!! ( I got it a day earlier then everyone else) I am a bigger Avengers fan!!!!

Tuesday- I bought my oldest a copy of the AVENGERS, because I wasn't gonna share.  I also made some tutu dress and some bows. We took my oldest to football practice and to the book fair. Which he tried to talk me into buying all kinds of books. I think book fairs jack up the prices to sucker parents into buying books. I bet they think, Oh I bet those kids can talk their parents into buying the books they want. Well guess again, I AM NOT A SUCKER.

Wednesday- This was a long and stressful day. My youngest ( 2 years old) woke up at  6 am, and was cranky. His speech therapist and a social worker (deals with behavior) came at 9 am. They did the follow up for the Autism test, which he failed again. He did finally warm up to his speech therapist, which was awesome. She got him to say please and do the sign for it. He now uses both when he wants something. They set up an appointment with a doctor that does a longer Autism test to see what happens and get a diagnosis for him. We had a doctors appointment with his regular doctor to check his ears because he does not like for anyone to mess with them or to touch them. He has fluid behind his ear drums, so he is on a prescription and has a hearing test. If they cant get the fluid to drain, he will have to get tubes put in.  Later that night, we watched the AVENGERS as a family.

Thursday-  We had a semi- normal day. My youngest had a dentist appointment, I was a bit worried how he would act. We got there and I explained to him what was gonna happen. He was kind of scared but was okay with it. When the dentist got to us, he laid in the chair, opened wide and was calm and cool. I was so proud of him for the way he acted. It was AWESOME!!!! We went to Barns and Nobles after and got a couple of books. I am trying to teach my 5 year old responsibility, so I got him a chart. I told him for every week full of smiley faces he will get a dollar. We shall see about this. The baby started rolling over too. It's so cute!!! She is growing like a weed and fast!!! We had football practice and I had a fall festival meeting at my oldest school. ( I had to be there because I am room mom for his class.) We watched the Avengers again lol

Friday- WOAH, WHAT A LONG DAY!!!! We had our homecoming pep rally. That was loud and fun. I had to talk to FORD CREDIT, due to identity theft!! WHAT A PAIN IN THE BUTT!!! I went and did alittle shopping. I got some outfits at BEALS for the baby. It was buy one get one for a $1. It was awesome. I also got some NUBY toys. I plan on putting up some reviews soon on some of my many purchases. Probably tomorrow, I am one TIRED momma.

Well as TIGGER says, TTFN ( TA TA FOR NOW)

Sunday fun day

Today is my 27th birthday (woohoo for old age lol). The day was quite eventful. I had a great day thanks to my family and friends!! I had the most amazing cake!!! (If you're in the west Texas region check out Jan Gresham at Family traditions, she is amazing) I will post some lovely pictures :-)

I also did some shopping, not just for myself but for the kiddos too! I finally got the baby bullet, and I can't wait to start making my own baby food! But I won't go into that story, it's a whole another post!

It never fails to amaze me that some places have workers who don't wanna work. I waiting for someone at Target to help me for over 5 minutes! I could see the worker staring at me like I was a zombie or something. Seriously, though how hard is it to walk up to the customer and ask if they need help? I wouldn't have freaking pressed the help button if I didn't need it!!! One of those duh moments I guess!

Be on the look out for more post on rants and raves and some product reviews :-)

Here's a picture of my awesome cake

Life happens....

So these past few weeks I have learned a few things.

One being that football moms are crazy and early games sucks!! But 5 year olds are so cute in the pads and football helmet! I'm not sure my 5 year old really likes the game or not, we've only played one game so far. We will see as more games happen.

The second thing I have learned is patience. Something I don't have. Early last week two ladies from ECI ( early childhood intervention) came out to evaluate my 2 year old son. One being he doesn't talk, scared of people he shouldn't be and having some major out of control, bang your head on the floor temper tantrums. I had mentioned to these lovely ladies, that I had a friend who thought he maybe autistic. Well when she told me I took the M-chat which scored him at a high risk.

I talked about it with them and they said they would evaluate him for it. He was enrolled in their program and now come 4 times a month to help him with his speech. Which is hard at times because he doesn't like strangers and its hard to get him I open up.

Next week will be tough. Another lady will be coming on Wednesday to follow up with the m-chat and get him into doctors that deal with autism. It's hard to cope with all of it. Knowing that my poor little guy. No parent likes to hear that something is wrong with one of there children. I plan on buying books and learning more about it, so that I can help him more.

On a positive note, the baby is growing like a weed! She thinks she's older then she is. She's been trying to sit up on her own and trying to roll over. The cooing, talking and laughing has started and it's so cute. We love it! Her brothers adore her!

I finally got a nook color (which I love and would recommend it to anyone!!)! I read the whole Fifty Shades of Grey series and let me say OMGEEE! ThAy was the best series, I hope she writes more! It was so good and I just love Mr. Grey!!!

I finally got to start making bows and tutu dress! Came up with a name for my shop, Dezi's House of Bowz!!! I really love doing it! It helps relax me and take my mind off of the days stress!

On a later note.... Till next time this is the crazy life of a mom with three great kids!!

Alittle about me

Well I'm a mom of two boys 5 and 2 years old. I also have a 9wk old baby girl :-)!! I'm not your everyday normal mom. I have 16 tattoos and 1 piercing. I listen to Rock and metal. I love photography, baking and making bows.

This year is going to be very interesting: my oldest starts kinder and is playing tackle football yikes!!!! Talk about giving mama a heart attack!!!? My 2 yr old will be in gymnastics which I think will be good for him. So baby girl and I will be on the side lines cheering on the boys.
