Vinyl complications and mosquito tests

July 25, 2011

Hey mamas! It has been a while since I have written a “fresh” blog post. I think I am about ready to open the door to blogging again. We are having a ton of fun around here with new baby Tanner.  And lucky for you his presence creates a slew of new blog material.  I am making a list of all the dumb absent mom minded things I have been doing lately so stay tuned.  Here is a warm-up. . .

Deciding our vinyl “Mom 4 Life” banner gracing the back of our van window was getting a little too tattered (i.e. it might have been driving traffic AWAY from our site it looked so shabby) I ordered a brand new one from Inspire Your Walls.  Unfortunately, we neglected to follow the application directions and totally ruined the sticky lettering.  The good news is that the logo was salvaged.  The bad news is that the Mom 4 Life logo is not yet quite as recognizable as the Nike swoosh so although cute, I am afraid I don’t have a very good chance of enticing new visitors to my site with my new window design.

I tested out our Loving Naturals Insect Repellant in the grove of my in-laws Minnesota home during a recent visit.  Since I was wearing my Moby Wrap baby carrier at the time, I decided it could do double duty for me and I wrapped it around my head (which had not been sprayed with bug repellant).  My daughter who was along with me, took a photo to capture my stylish look.

She also captured some additional flattering family photos of my mother-in-law and my husband.

Speaking of stylish, tell me this is not the cutest thing you have ever seen.  Here I am with my mother-in-law wearing our matching Mom 4 Life t-shirts, Croc shoes and Honda Odyssey vans:

During our drive home from Minnesota, I realized I had neglected to leave the house wearing nursing pads so when my milk suddenly came in, I stuffed my nursing bra with a pair of socks—not too flattering, but effective in a pinch.  Too bad I forgot to take them out when we were at the gas station and I went in to get a snack!

Have any fun tid-bits to share from your week?  I’ll be back with more soon. . .
