Yesterday we head to church I am so happy to have my cell phone on tow and think maybe I should get a new one but maybe it can wait a little while. I'm a busy girl and cell phones aren't a huge priority. After church we head to lunch and I am digging around for Ramsey snacks and notice everything in my purse is damp. Oh yes, my travel coffee much had spilled all over my purse. Why did I have it in my purse you ask??? I don't know either.
Now my phone battery is swimming in coffee and smells. Not to mention it has taken on a life of it's own. It is fried. So needless to say I am headed to the phone store today to make a new purchase. Funny how we can be set in our own plans about things and life seems to know better. Granted it is only a cell phone, thank goodness, but I find it interesting none the less.

Is it just me or is it exahusting trying to get ready and get myself and my sidekick out the door each morning. I mean by 9:30 I feel like I've already done a days work. Thankfully Ramsey is fun and I enjoy being his mommy so much. Here is just a little random video of how he likes to entertain himself while I get ready:

We had a great night with lots of laughter and funny stories. The next morning we all had breakfast together and then we headed for home. One the way we decided to stop by the huge outlets in Commerce even though we had forgotten the stroller we decided to tag team the event. We never shop so we had to at least try. We started in J-Crew and Ramsey was out of control we tried but he was everywhere. We ended up spending like $280 and both walked out not sure at all what we had bought. If a shirt fits grab one in every color and lets go! Needless to say we only made it to about 2 other store before we gave up.
We made it home and were all exhausted but felt like we really had spent some quality time together. Car trips are the best and we were all glad to have gotten away if even for a day.

He was so proud of himself. His art stuff sits out but he never bothers it so I did not worry much about it until this morning. Instead of acting guilty he decided to act cute and I did what any good mother would do, I grabbed the camera of course .

That being said I have been struggling over how to continue to keep with with my orders as they get more and more each week. I wish there were more hours in the day but there are not so the next option is to get a second embroidery machine and work more efficiently. It has been a great move. So now when I am working...I AM WORKING! Seriously I can do so much more these days.

My Mom watches Ramsey on Tuesday afternoons so I can work/sew and then we all meet for Mexican dinner in town. After we finish dinner we head out but first we stop by the register to get our chicklet gum and then Ramsey has fallen in love with the "stuffed animal game" in the lobby. You know the one where it has the big claw that you guide around in hopes of picking up some treasure that is really worthless but at the time seems invaluable. The game where those darn claws are so greased it never grabs hold of anything. We'll this particular machine has a Lightning McQueen stuffed animal in it. If you know Ramsey you know he is on the verge of obsessed with anything related to the movie Cars. We have tried every single week for that darn McQueen and I would watch his little heart be disappointed each time we didn't get it. We were spending like $2 a week on this awful game.
If you know me I HATE TO WASTE MONEY so I decided to order a McQueen stuffed animal from Ebay. It came all the way from Japan and took 2 weeks but finally it came. So last night after dinner Cope put 50 cents in the rotten machine and acted like he was going for McQueen and we distracted Ramsey for a quick second and then started cheering and told him to look in the drop slot. Sure enough the McQueen we had planted was there and waiting for Ramsey's hot little hands. He was so excited!
When we got home he wanted to sleep with McQueen so we of course let him. I felt a little guilty about tricking him but not guilty enough to keep paying that dumb machine each week. Ramsey is happy camper and currently still snuggled up next to McQueen. So silly machine, take that! This Mom and Dad team conquered you! At least until he finds something else in there he wants next week.
