Happy Birthday Party Bella!

Today my daughter had her 2nd birthday party! I cannot believe my baby is already turning two. She’s my last child, and I normally don’t get all emotional about things like this, but I actually feel so weird, in a sense, that she is no longer a baby.

OK enough of that sappy stuff. On to the party details! Bella is absolutely OBSESSED with dogs. So of course I had to do a dog theme party! I had the cutest little goodie bags picked out but I had to throw some of the stuff away because little old me didn’t realize I bought beef flavored tennis balls and the entire bag of stuff reeked. I had been wondering why the hell my upstairs hallway smelled like beef jerky. Now I know HAHA!

Dan and I went all out with streamers and here is a picture of the happy girl when she realized that all the decorations were for her:

She had a blast! She loved her cake, though she looked rather nervous when everyone sang to her, but Zachary made sure to sit next to her to help her (blow out the candles) feel safe.

Happy birthday Bella boo!

Bzzzz…Smuckers Uncrustables

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out a Smuckers Uncrustables sandwiches. My children absolutely devoured them and I thought they were pretty good myself! We tried the peanut butter and strawberry jelly ones, but they also come in these great flavors as well:

  • Peanut butter and grape jelly
  • Peanut butter and honey on wheat
  • Peanut butter
  • Grilled cheese

The great thing about these sandwiches, besides the fact that the crust is already cut off for you, is the fact that they are ready made and easy to just grab and go when needed. If you have school aged children who take there lunch, all you need to do is take one out of the freezer, pop it in their lunch and by the time they are ready to eat it, they have a fresh (and thawed) crustless sandwich! And they really do taste fresh! That was a concern of mine. I am not big on eating bread that has been in the freezer and then thawed, but this really did taste good (and trust me, I am a picky eater so if I like it…it must be good!).

I picked my Smuckers Uncrustables at Meijers, however I have also seen them at Costco. According to the information I received about the Smuckers Uncrustables, you are able to purchase them at any major food chain!

Enjoy! As a BzzAgent, I received a handful of 75 cent off coupons. Send me an email at domestic_goddess@mail.com and I will happily drop a coupon in the mail for you to try your favorite flavor of Smuckers Uncrustables!

If you’ve tried these sandwiches before, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of them please! Thanks!

Weird, Weird Evening

After Dan got home from work, I headed out to get the last remaining items I needed for Bella’s party on Sunday. As I’m driving down the road, a road that is VERY busy, I notice this frog on the side of the road. How I noticed it or thought to look over that way at that moment is beyond me. What happened next made me feel like I was in my very own episode of “Frogger” (you know…that video game??). That very stupid frog began it’s suicidal hop across the busiest road in my city. I couldn’t bear to look in the review mirror to check on the fate of that poor, stupid frog.

The next thing I saw was in the parking lot of Krogers. It would be best if you just picture this…you’re sitting in your car behind another car waiting to park, when all of a sudden you see something that literally blows your mind. The car in front of you turns into what she thought was a parking space, but really it was the cart corall. Yes…the place where you park your CART when you are finished with it.

She got her cart in there, but couldn’t figure out why she was unable to open her door to get out of her car. I literally almost peed my pants.

My goal for the weekend

Besides pulling off a great 2nd birthday for my daughter…I want to win my fantasy football game! Last week was an amazing game for me. I was playing the undefeated team and I won! Knocked him down a notch! And boy did it feel good; for me that is. I’m sure it pretty much sucked for him losing to a girl who really doesn’t know much about football.

Cross your fingers for me!

Ask me what I found my beautiful daughter doing…

Now mind you, she is a week or so shy of being 2. I went outside to get the mail. I come back in and she is washing her face with toilet water. Go ahead, throw up and come back and finish reading once you are done and have grabbed a piece of gum. I’ll wait…

What in the hell possesses a child to do that? It’s not like she doesn’t know what a toilet is for. She has gone on it before. More times than not during a day, she uses a toilet over a diaper. But yet she found that water so appetizing, that she just had to wash her face with it. Her face!! It doesn’t get any grosser than that. Well I guess it could if I said she was drinking it, but then again she was washing her face…her lips and mouth are on her face so who knows.
