Mommy Needs a Pot of Coffee

Each morning I try to have my posts up by 7:00AM Pacific Time. I don't have any rhyme or reason behind this, but I like the consistency of posting at the same time every day. Today that schedule was blown to bits.

Last night was one of the WORST since Marcus has been born. There was endless hours of screaming and crying. Endless attempts to cure an unknown (and still unknown) issue(s). There was even a point where I think I would have given Marcus away to the first person willing to take him. I kid. Sort of. From 8:30PM to 6:30AM there MIGHT have been a combined three hours of sleep.  

Momma is tired. 

How the little man is going strong right now is totally beyond me. At this point I could sleep for DAYS.

With that said, I could use a big, piping hot POT of coffee. 

And, that leads me to a little High Five-ing for Friday!

1. Sunday is National Coffee Day. Who knew?? To honor the day, it is reported that Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Tim Hortons, and Wawa are offering free cups of coffee. Yes, please. I'll take one from each, like right now.

2. I've been toying with the idea of chopping off my hair. What person with long hair doesn't toy with that idea once a week? When I saw Claire Danes rocking a faux bob, or "faub," at the Emmy's I knew I had to try it out. Now I can get my short hair fix without ever cutting a strand. 
Anyone interested on a how-to of the faux bob? Let me know, I'm debating on whether or not to do a tutorial.
3. THESE PANTS! I don' know WHAT it is, but these pants from Road Runner Sports are beyond awesome. Words don't even begin to describe how gloriously comfy these pants are. Running or not, I could probably wear these all day every day. The icing on the cake, they were on sale. Booyah! 
4. Yesterday was this little guy's 1st Birthday! Happy Birthday to our Superman nephew, Clark!
Oh my gosh, seriously, how adorable is he?!!

5. I'm fairly certain Marcus has finally fallen asleep. Praise the Lord. Let's hope this nap lasts a loooooong time. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. What are those pants called? I have a Road Runner Sports membership too - I just might need a pair of those! :)

  2. go get a nap!!!!
    totally using sunday as an excuse for caribou or starbucks!!
    you are super hot. your body rocks!
    and i love the short hair on you!

  3. So sorry you had such a rough night -- hope you get some time to drink all the coffee you need! I'm now even more excited for coffee on Sunday -- defiantly will be making a special stop to starbucks! :)

  4. Oh no, hope tonight is better!

    And you look awesome with a shorter bob! :-)

  5. I hope the rest of your day went smoother. I love those pants... They look so comfy plus you look great in them!!

  6. National Coffee Day. What??? I'm pretty sure I celebrate that every day anyway though...

  7. Oh momma, I bet you are exhausted! I hope EVERYONE gets a good sleep tonight.

  8. Oh girl, that sucks!! Hopefully last night went MUCH better for you. Cute hair, too!

  9. Just now catching this post...and it's totally appropriate. Emma went to bed at 8, woke up at 10 and has been awake for 2 hours. I'm going to need 4 pots of coffee to get through tomorrow!

    Love the faux-bob look on you! Super cute!! Hope you caught up on your sleep. :)

  10. I totally went to Starbucks yesterday and didn't get a free coffee! Boo! Love the pants- I'm a sucker for Capri tights to run in- but really to wear all the time. :)

  11. Those moments where the babies cry for unknown reasons are the worst - especially for such long times - I know the feeling and I'm sorry to burst your bubble - it will happen again.

    The hair do is cute but I couldn't pull it off - I would find myself sleeping on the couch! LOL

    And those pants! - I LOVE THEM!!! And the sale - BONUS!!

    Hope you're getting the sleep and rest you need ((HUGS))
