What happened to my sweet little angel??

Yikes, Senor Ford has gone from cute to trouble in a matter of days! Geesh! Suddenly, I no longer have an innocent and obedient child; now I've got a fearless RASCAL on my hands..... So far this week he's tried to shove a knife in an electrical outlet, thrown everything but the kitchen sink into various toilets throughout our house, and climbed on top of our coffee table and decided to stand up.... Yep, I see many trips to the emergency room in the near future... If I didn't color my hair I'm SURE you'd see the arrival of MULTIPLE grey's, after the last seven days I've had with Ford....Wow..... 

And as for the word, "No," well, let's just say Ford is none to pleased with this word. We're talking full blown, bang your head on the ground ( doesn't matter if we're in public or not) temper tantrums. This Mommy is laying on some tough love this week folks bc seriously, that's just not ok in our household! Thank goodness Daddy has a better poker face then me bc most of the time when I try to tell my child no, he's just so stinkin' cute that I flat out cave.... Dadda is definetly the disciplinarian in this household, for sure, but like I said- I'm working on it!

I swear I'll be happy whether number two is a boy or a girl, but gosh.... if it is a boy.... is it bad that I kinda hope he's a little "nerdy," and NOT as rough and tough as my existent child??? Hah! One can dream, right???

Weekend Recap

It poured cats and dogs in San Antonio this past weekend! So we spent a lot of time indoors, just relaxing! However, the rain held out for a bit Saturday morning and we were able to swing by the Farmer's Market downtown at the Pearl Brewery. Every time we make the thirty minute trek downtown Tyler and I inevitably decide we're moving...... like tomorrow. We just LOVVVVVVEEEE older homes and the city feel. We love the weird people a downtown attracts and the eclectic nature a city creates. Sounds weird when I'm married to THE most conservative person I know,  but what can I say, we like people--- different people, and the interesting conversations you can have when you surround yourself with people who have different beliefs, upbringing's, backgrounds etc. Not to mention, T and I love a good " fixer-upper!"But, as usual, as we wrapped up our tour of all our favorite areas downtown we decided we'd be buying more lottery tickets bc that's what it would take to get into that zip code! Grrr. One can dream, right??? 

Anyway, here's a cute pic of the boys, walking around the farmer's market, so cute!

We also stopped off at a local fish market bc they were having a helluva sale on Maine lobster, It just so happened, two weeks ago Goop sent an email regarding the perfect "Lobster Roll," and this former Northerner has been craving this delicacy EVER since. It's tragically unfair that I have an allergy to this yummy crustacean, but I admit, I sneak a few bites here and there whenever it's available :)So we met up with our neighbors and in true Deneault fashion, we bought WAY more than we needed and hubs froze a bunch. When I say "a lot," I'm not kidding, here's proof as the boys clean 'em (slightly ridiculous I totally agree).... 

And finally, if your interested and like oatmeal, I made this yummy oatmeal bake from pinterest for Ford and I to eat on all week- it's yummy! Probably wouldn't serve it while entertaining bc I don't think there's a pretty way to serve it, but it's perfect for me and the Little!

Well-oiled Machine

So, I'm laying in bed early this morning, annoyed because my internal alarm clock has woken me up at 6:00 AM and it's Saturday for pete sake and like most Mom's, now that I'm up, I can't turn my dang brain off. Grrr. Just as I'm about to roll out of bed and start my day the hubs sleepily rolls over and wraps his arms around me. Normally, I'd shake him off and continue on, but we've been REALLY busy these past few weeks and it feels good to get a little love, even if he's asleep and doesn't know he's loving on me :) 

As I lay there this morning, I couldn't help but thinking how lucky I am and how loved I feel. NOT because my husband is some amazing romantic machine (sorry honey, but your not) but because there is absolutely no one on this earth better equipped to take care of me, love me, and keep my heart safe. 

I've been having a lot of conversations about him lately. A lot of my friends think he is the epitome of the "good hubs" so when they get in arguments with their significant other, or they're dating some jerk-a-mole, they call and ask me, "what would Tyler do..." kinds of questions and I always say- GUYS HE' NOT A SAINT!!!! GEESH! BUT....... this week I found myself saying a few things that really got me thinking AND for once appreciating some of the smaller things my husband does do, that often go unnoticed by me, his over emotional, super hormonal, nutty, chaotic, preggo wife. 

I guess what hit home the most is something I said to a friend about the way Tyler shows love. I told her, that despite all the things he does in a given day to annoy me (hah we've been together for six years- there's a lot)   I know, without a doubt, that he always puts Ford and I FIRST when it comes to his decision making. Whether it be a simple decision like "what am I grabbing for Take Out" or a much tougher decision, like " how long can I be on a business trip away from my family," we're always first and he absolutely makes sure we know it. 

I thought about that a lot this morning, thought about our relationship, our marriage, and the life we're building. There is nothing more important than family, but above all there's nothing more important than your partner. Without them, there'd be no family, that's why we work---because my partner makes me a priority. Maybe not in the Chick-Flick inspired, romantic acts of love kinda way, but DEFINITELY in the-- your a part of this well oiled machine and without you, this machine wouldn't run kinda way :) 

Love you honey, thanks for this life and sorry if I don't tell you enough--- your my better half :)

Brain Dump Wednesday!

Ok, so this week has been a whirlwind, LOTS going on in the Deneault household, which means-- lots spinning around in my pretty little head!

1. I am having a really hard time focusing lately. I feel like I'm spend half my day walking around in a circle. Grrrr.... pregnancy brain has arrived.

2.  Ford had a "Hitch" moment today. You know the scene in Hitch where Will Smith blows up like a balloon after eating shellfish? Well, Ford didn't eat anything, but he got bit/stung by something and his ear and the left side of his face exploded! Scary stuff.... A call to the doctor and one big dose of Children's Benadryl, I'm hoping Senor wakes up from his nap and looks like my sweet babe again--- cross fingers!

3. We had a little bit of a health concern last week/this week for baby number two and I'm not going to lie, it's been weighing on my mind, HEAVILY, but after a few more tests, we got the news we were praying for today----- our bambino is healthy and it was only a false alarm. Thank Goodness. Sighing a major sigh of relief.

4. Ford is absolutely loving Mother's Day Out and this Mama is LOVING it even more! Everyone keeps asking me if I'm taking naps and or relaxing while he's at school---- Hello, people, my name is Crispin Deneault and "relax" is not in my vocabulary. I've been spending my time, sew, sew, sewing of course!

5. Speaking of sewing, Tres Bien is booming!!! Thanks so much to all my sweet friends who've ordered and promoted my little shop! Love you guys!

6. I am seriously DYING for all my Fall shows to start! All the previews have begun running on tv and seriously I'm so anxious to see what happens on Revenge and Once Upon a Time!

7. While we're talking TV, my Mother in Law suggested T and I watch Dexter awhile back and we never really got around to it. That is until last month and now we're ABSOLUTELY obsessed. Amazon Prime LOVES us, considering they charge $1.99 per episode.... We're already on Season Three! You do the math.... ouch. But seriously, it's an AWESOME show and uber, uber addicting!

8. I made this little number for dinner last night- I absolutely LOVE Pinterest! And so does the hubs, we've never eaten so well! Try it out, this recipe is DELISH!

Hope ya'll are having a good week too!

Sometimes God has other plans for you....

So, for those of you who know me, you know that baby number two was supposed to be something Tyler and I were planning on getting to, NEXT Summer. In fact, this whole entire Summer, I've been on my soap box about how GREAT a three year gap between kiddos would be. Quite frankly, the idea of a second child right now, when I'm just starting to get my arms around this whole "Mom," thing, sends me into a panic attack of epic proportions. Seriously.

Don't get me wrong, a second child was in our, "plan," and I am nothing short of thrilled that we are blessed with the opportunity to raise another sweet babe. I'm just a little nervous about the semantics. TWO children, twenty-three months apart..... holy smokes! But hey..... that's life.... right? If Tyler and I have learned anything as a married couple, I think it's just to "roll with it." God has a plan and I just have to keep reminding myself to just let it be, sit back, and enjoy the ride, his ride....

So, with that said, and a really big deep breath, I thought I'd share with ya'll how we found out about our impending little nugget......

When my Grandfather passed away, he had a contagious bacteria in his intestines, so when I got home from FL and had all these stomach "issues," I just assumed I had caught his bug, which the Doctor assured me that for "healthy" people would pass relatively quickly. Two weeks later, I hadn't eaten a thing, felt utterly disgusting and was majorly stressing out. Then suddenly, the Saturday before our family beach trip, I woke up CRAVING a Quarter Pounder with cheese, I'm embarrassed to admit---my signature pregnant food. Tyler looked at me and said--- YOU ARE SO PREGNANT. Sure enough six VERY POSITIVE pregnancy tests later --- we were convinced! 

Needless to say, we've since gotten over the, "shock." and are extremely excited to welcome our new little one sometime in late March! In the meantime, I'm doing everything I can to remain healthy and not turn all gigantic "Jessica Simpson," again. I'm not giving into my cravings AND I'm still working out almost everyday. So HOPEFULLY this time, I won't gain SEVENTY POUNDS! Cross your fingers- PLEASE!

In the meantime, my goal is to kickstart my blogging efforts again and take you all along for this fun-filled ride! So if your interested, check back for fun preggo/mommy updates!  I promise they'll be more often :)

Thank you, as always, for your love and support!
