It Has Been a LONG week

FINALLY...here are the last of my dare pictures!! I had so much fun taking them and embarrassing my hubby....he says I am too old to do this....I disagree whole heartedly...

Sorry it has taken me so incredibly long to get this up, but honestly I had more pressing issues to attend to...namely Tommy, Jack AND Dan.

See this past week has been Dan's "furlough" week from work (each month everyone at his company takes an unpaid week - its the last ditch effort to get the company through some tough times....) so not only am I suddenly home with both boys, but so was Dan. It has been a wonderful, but incredibly long week...full of lots of naps, trips to the park, and begging for some grandparental assistance.

I am not yet in a schedule with the boys, I am still trying to figure out what will be our day-to-day, to have Daddy home too just threw me for a loop. Add to that, the regularly scheduled Tuesday with Pop-Pop (my dad) for the boys was cancelled as Pop-Pop was very tired from his own long weekend. I am still trying to stop my head from spinning to be honest with you. Fortunately Pop-Pop had the boys all day Thursday and today, AND we had a wonderful long dinner/play date with BoBo (Dan's Mom) Thursday night.

So I apologize for absolutely not commenting the last couple of days, and for the overdue embarrassing pictures, but, I was pleasantly distracted...

Now please enjoy the following as I put myself down for a nap....this SAHM thing is a lot more taxing than I thought it'd be!!


DARE: Since I am sitting here with rollers in my hair as I type, I think I would like to see you driving (running an errand, on your way to work, whatever) with rollers in your hair. I think that would make a cute picture :) And no just sitting in your driveway and snapping a picture - get out there and embarrass yourself! (Brooke)

I promise Brooke I did the best I could, but I have never had rollers in my hair and boy are they uncomfortable. I survived the trip to the carwash with them on then they had to go. Rollers just aren't for me!!
DARE: Hmmmm...truth or dare, huh? I dare you to buy some temp hair color in a vibrant color and wear it in your hair in some capacity for 1 full day. (heidi)

Do you know how hard it is to find temporary hair dye that will work in dark hair?!
I finally settled on a lovely shade of purple....and yes I wore it ALL DAY!!!

DARE:I totally love the idea of your hair in pigtails or rollers... but hows about busting into song in public? My mom, sister, and I used to sing "I've Been Working on the Railroad" at the top of our lungs in the grocery store. ( Rachel )
I even hammed it up a bit. The fellow shoppers at Walmart were amazed....and once again my hubby was embarrassed....LOVE IT!!!



  1. These are great! I would never have the nerve to do what you did! LOL

    Looking forward to seeing some pics for the challengeI gave you! :o)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Cute pics of everyone and you look fab in rollers. Too cute. I love your headband too in the last picture. Super snazzy. I want a video of that one. LOL

  3. Oh my gosh - you DID it! :) I am so stinkin' proud of you for busting into song... that is awesome!

    I'm with Mimi... would have loved the video! :) Were the kiddos surprised? I bet it was fun! Loving the pictures!

  4. You are such a trooper! Way to follow through on your dares! :)

  5. Great job! I can vouch for you that you are NOT sitting in your driveway!! You are brave. :o) Hope you had a great week with all of your boys even if you are exhausted!

  6. First, I love the pictures of the boys outside. Looks like they are getting lots and lots of fresh air and fun.

    Next, I love that you really did these dares! You are such a good sport. How fun for you, how embarrassing for your hubby :)

  7. Hope you have a super weekend!
    ♥ HUGS ♥

  8. I came to your site from Sneaky Momma and I just love it. The dare this is too funny, but I must say I don't think I could sing outloud in the store. Your boys are adorable and yes being a SAHM is work, been doing it for 8 months and I find it very different that being just an at home wife. Good luck.

  9. How fun! I love your dare pics!
    I think a lot of people do not realize that being a SAHM is very much a full time job. A great job, but a 24/7 one nonetheless. I'm sure you'll settle into a routine soon. Hang in there. :)

  10. Cute post!!!!! I love the pic of your boys; what cuties!!!!

  11. Hey, I wore bright green hair color in my hair at camp a year or two back! I work with our youth group, we were at camp for a week together, and on the final day we all wore our 'team color' of GREEN in our hair! I actually liked it! =0)

  12. It IS hard, isn't it? TO find a temp color for dark hair, I mean. Thus why my purple streaks never came out, dagnabbit. I'm proud of you for following through!

    Can you email me? I have an idea *grin*

  13. Go you!!!!! Love the rollers. And the tat by the way. So, I think I missed something. You're suddenly home - did you get laid off?
