Hello my loves!

    Oh my sweet friends... this mama has missed the heck out of you! Distance & time sure does make the heart grow fonder (& a lil crazy), let me tell ya! F-O-R-T-Y~T-H-R-E-E days it has been... 43 DAYS since my last post. Forty-three days since my poor abused laptop finally left me... for reals YO! With all the crazy expenses we've had lately, a shiny new laptop was just not in the budget anytime soon. But then there is my sweet, sweet, SWEET handsome man. I don't know how he does it. He has never EVER let me down, he has never broken a promise, & he always tells me the truth. He promised me as soon as the right deal came along, I would have a shiny new toy. I have an amazing new laptop.( Thank you baby.) To seriously afford the level of computer I needed, he thought that a Black Friday deal would be our best bet. This guy did a ton of research, & was glued to his computer. On Black Friday he only got a couple hours of sleep, & returned home with my new bff! I can load a gazillion pictures on this bad boy, & not worry about slowing it down. Greg actually said it will hold about 3-4 years of pictures. In Melanie Land that is a LOT of pictures. Challenge accepted Babe. Challenge accepted!

    I can NOT wait to reconnect & catch up with all my girls. I truly adore you lovely ladies, &  I feel we all make a positive impact on each other. Though I have never met a lot of you face to face, I consider you friends. I could have never imagined that blogging would be such a big part of my life. I am so darn excited to be back! I wish you could see me right now... cause I'm doing the happy dance! Also on a super important note, Right before my ex-laptop left me my A-mazing AMAZING friend Kyna actually let me be part of her oh so fabulous blog. She was so kind to ask me to feature a quick & easy little recipe idea our family likes. I would be so happy if you would go pay her a visit at Great Expectations. You will not be disappointed. She is absolutely the sweetest mommy, to the most adorable little girl. I truly adore her, & I know you will too!

Of course I couldn't end a post without some Jaxy!
Dude. A lot happens in 43 days.
(Especially when you have a 3 year old)
We've had sooo much fun.
Here's a few Halloween pics of my little monkey man...

Or, should I say little monster?
Mr Jax Loves him some Monsters Inc.,
& picked his costume out all by himself!
I am a sucker for those monster feet!


The infamous blue hard hat was only about 5x too big. Lol...
It was freakishly adorable though!


After a fun monster filled night we cuddled up for Cars 2.
(Jax was just a bit excited)
Car's PJ's~ check
Car's pillow~ check
Car's blanket~ check
AND... Lightning himself- CHECK!
How I love my funny funny little man. 


Yes.
A hard hat & a bubble bath. That's how we roll baby!
 That's all for now folks!
