....and I'm back.

Everytime I sit down to blog once again, my mommy duties come calling and that of course takes high priority over my online tales :)

Life at our house has progressively gotten easier with Hudson, as we've grown accustomed to our new life as parents and our daily love for him continues to grow as quickly as he does. Our weight issue has been solved and he has grown into quite a long and lanky pea pod---clearly not inheriting that from his momma.

I know I still owe you Part II of my questions, but I first randomly have to alert you about something that has made my life way way easier. I don't often recommend products and such because I fear you won't share my same enthusiasm...but this one I make an exception for because I know, especially mommies, will appreciate the make-my-life-easier-one-less-thing-to-do bit.

The Conair Fabric Steamer
Firstly, and most important---I HATE, DESPISE, and LOATHE ironing. Whomever invented the iron will not find a friend in me. It is time consuming and hands down my least favorite household chore. Secondly, we have found in PA that their dry cleaning charges are roughly the same cost as a one-way ticket to Costa Rica. Insanity. Husband works in slacks and a button-up everyday so imagine what our dry cleaning bill was up here.

The horror. We went once and never went back. I'd rather fly to Costa Rica.

Steaming our clothes takes me 30 mins maybe, and our clothes look dry-clean worthy and make me feel all silly kinds of domestic. Two thumbs up. Way up.

That there is my steamer promotion, and now back to what really makes me smile. These squishy cheeks and all that come with ♥ Do you fancy his comb-over? because I do.

and lastly I leave you with what I wake up to on our Saturday mornings.

Courtney said...

His eyes are too precious!

Abby said...

Thank goodness you posted! I was getting worried, BFF!

We must exchange email addresses!

I can't believe how much your sweet tiny has changed in the past couple weeks! Crazy!

Em said...

So precious! I can't wait to join the club! :o) Are you guys getting to watch any of the Sooner action up there? I sure hope so!

The Drama Mama said...

I've been wondering how you were doing! Glad you are just enjoying that sweet, precious baby...all the other stuff can wait! And I L-O-V-E the last picture....priceless! HUGS!

Hudson is just so precious... you might think I'm crazy, but I tease my husband about moving to Pennsylvania just so we can be friends.

Might have to run out a get a steamer... thanks for the info!!

We have that steamer too and I love it - not that I actually use it (alas, the dry cleaning bills just keep piling up :)

Hudson is just smoochable beyond belief!

Life at the White House said...

Our (my) dry cleaning bills are a little too high and I've thought about ironing everything myself, but don't have an ounce of desire to do it. Maybe a steamer would do the trick?

LOVE the photo of your two guys!!! Aghhhh!!! PS - we'll be in Dallas the weekend of Thanksgiving, any chance you guys will be there??

Sweet Simplicity said...

aaaawww, he is so cute! I love your bedding! At least I think that is what the light blue with white fabric was.

Elizabeth said...

I LOVE my steamer. I use it ALL the time. It saves money and it's so easy to use!
Love your pictures. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Laura and Ryan said...

Thank you for posting about the steamer. We live in Germany and it is CRAZY expensive to get dry cleaning done. What is funny is when you pick it up, they just hand you your garment. No hanger or bag. Just-- here you go! LOL

Ricardo and Lauren said...

I have been known to take some clothes up to work and steam! I love steamers!!

PS two weeks, TWO WEEKS until I see your face and love on sweet Hudson. I can't wait!!! Love you!
