Thursday Randoms + DEAL alert!

1. I am a renowned Chef. More like chef in the making. Okay, maybe not chef, but seriously guys, it's unbelievable how far I have come in this "wife" role. This year alone. I solely attribute it to the birth of my daughter though. I cook everyday. Lunch. Dinner. Including the nights that I have to work. Weekends? Those are freebies. We usually have date nights "in" or "out" or Andrew cooks something. Do you guys remember when I said that Andrew did all the cooking? Yup. Not so much anymore. And surprisingly... I love it. My friends would die. Not believe it. Probably think an alien took over my body. But it's the truth.. and I have a feeling I am just going to grow in this role. Maybe even become... good at it? Sheesh. I wish. I hope.
"Beef stew." Don't ask.
2. The movies. Andrew and I went for the first time... since... I was pregnant! Woah. We used to go honestly like every other week. Not so much anymore. But we love the movies. We're big movie fans. So it was nice. Anyone care to guess what we went to go see? I'll give you a hint... it involves vampires and werewolves. Yes, yes. I convinced the dear old husband of mine to see this movie. And he cringed the.whole.time. I guess next time... it's his call.
Husband in line waiting to get popcorn/drink. Can you tell he doesn't like his picture taken?
3. Pokemon & Santa. Who in the world put these two characters together? I mean really. Pokemon. Pikachoo. Whatever it's called. The guy in the big yellow suit. Dancing with Santa. On more than one occasion. Which is fine and dandy and all... but hello, crying toddlers waiting to sit on big mans lap. Lets hurry this up. No worries though, I managed to snap a picture. Must make it in the memory book.

4. Thumbsucker. Also known as Elliana. But we will call her TS from now on. She's loving that thumb these days, and while she does it she twiddles her hair. My mom says I used to do the exact same thing. I think it's super cute. And then she'll lay her head on me. Oh, my heart does flips. I love this child with every fiber in my body.
My own personal TS.
5. Ponytail. First one. This is for the record books. Oh and I adore it. Love it. Who wants to send me {I mean Elliana} cute hair ties?! She needs them bad! The ideas that are running through my head are endless...
6. Sassy. That's my daughter's middle name. TS Sassy. I mean, really. Check out how she stands. And then how she walks. And the way she talks to me. Really, talks to me. The way she looks at me. Her hand on her hip. Her "attitude" stance. Girl has it down. And it's precious as ever.. for now {ask me again in 16 years, and see what I say then}.
7. Fridge planner. Well, you guys know that I have the Erin Condren life planner. But in addition to that, I also got the "fridge" planner. This I use for our weekly meal plans, little reminders, and chores around the house. I obviously use my life planner as well, but this is more "family" oriented and specific to stuff around the house/meals. And this is my first week, so far, so good!
8. 1K. I reached it. I can't believe that a month short of my 2 year blog anniversary, I reached 1,000 lovely readers. Why, I will not ever understand. But thankful I am. Blogging has been one of the greatest outlets for me and I have met some absolutely amazing women. So thank you for reading, for following, laughing along the way, and supporting this little space of mine.
TS has a message for you all.
9. Turquoise jeans. The daughter of mine picked them out. Need I say more? TS.

10. Crafts. Hello. Did you think that that part of me fell off the space of this earth? {That's because it did}. But no worries friends, Craft Becky is making a comeback. Full force. Working on a few wreaths, canvases, planning some projects and pinning away. Here's a sneak peek.
11. Floor lover. TS sure has a lot going on this month. Sass. Thumb sucking. Floor hugging. Yes, my daughter likes to hang out on the floor. Head down. Laying on it like she would a bed. I do too.. however it usually involves a cocktail or too.
12.  Hot Mama. You heard it. Right here. Look what came in the mail yesterday... some major heels. Major. Not sure how long I will last in them... but I have some nice plans for them. Wink.
13. Young couple. I walked through the hallway yesterday when I saw this hot little couple hanging on the wall to my right. Do they look familiar to you?
 15. Dog lover. TS is a floor lover, thumb sucker, and a dog lover. I'm serious. This girl chases this freakin dog around all day every day. The first thing she says when she wakes up "Car...Car.." calling for him. And when she sees him? Her world lights up. It makes me love him a little bit more because of this. Just a little.
16. Blog Layout. Did you notice anything different? Did ya, did ya?! Well. That's because I spent last night messing around with my blog layout. This is the new layout for the new year {2012}, but with the holidays keeping me so busy, I figured I would go ahead get it up and running. Obviously once the holidays are over, the snowflakes and the "Merry Christmas" will go away. But otherwise, this is it guys. Blog layout of 2012. No changes until 2013. Mark my words.

17. I am a terrible friend, and totally missed my best friend's birthday. Called her last night at 1040 at night... the day after her birthday. No answer. What do I do now!?

  16. I tried to convince the hubby to go see it with me and the only way he said he would do it was if I snuck beer in my purse for him! We ended up just downloading it and I watched it yesterday while the girls napped. Cant wait to see Part II.

    Loving Elli's sassy stance, so adorable. She just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

  17. Haha! Our little one started lying on the floor lately too- usually it's when she is getting sleepy though, so we take it as a sign :)

    Second of all I was looking at the life planners for like an hour last night! I want one so badly. I'm hoping that after I have a few more clients at TKC Designs I can get one of those and the family planner made for me!
