let's get real, with some of your favorite mamas! v.4

let’s get real; sometime the day sucks, our kids are extra loud, and you are just begging God to send you an extra pair of arms. i try to be as real as possible here on hi, baby-cause come on life isn't always sparkles and i know mine or your baby isn't pooping rainbows. i love my family to the moon and back but i know how i would answer all these questions and they might not be pretty answers, but hey that’s life. you can bet that every second is worth it though and i will be right back up at it tomorrow.

for the next few plus weeks i am going to introduce you to some of my favorite blogging mamas (three at a time) and their dirty little mama secrets. so are you ready to get real?
chelsey is one of my favorite gals in internet land, her and her little family really are the cats pj's. i met her last year almost this time and and now we can't resist to make it a nearly monthly thing. i can't wait to share how she gets real.

what is the condition of your house right this second? 
Terribly messy.
what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
The meltdowns that always happen after I tell Ruari no. :)
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
Blog. :D
who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
Johnny Depp.
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
I just need some caffeine!
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
Spacing out with some tv and maybe some wine. :D

have you met allie yet? if you haven't you are really missing out! her babe henry is ADORABLE, and they are from washington which makes them that much cooler. this girl enjoys a good cold bear just like this mama. i met allie last year too and i can't wait till our trip to georgia next spring where we can play in their neck of the woods.
what is the condition of your house right this second? 
Apparently we like to organize our clutter now? Like, everything is just stacked in piles waiting to be put away and it drives me nuts. I keep telling myself that it's because we just moved in and that eventually those pictures will be put on the wall or those books will end up in the right shelf but guys? We moved in two months ago. One awesome thing about organized clutter is that it is easily scooted out of the way for pictures or shoved into a closest when people come over.  
what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
Henry has to have juice any time we're going somewhere. Seriously this kid could drink a carton full of apple juice if we let him. So as we're walking to the car he's frantically saying, "Juice" only he can't really say it so he just makes a horrible hissing sound (Jsssssssss Jssssssss Jssssssss!) He'll drink whatever we give him in like ten seconds, throw the cup at the back of our head, and then it's "Jsssssssss! Jssssssss!" again for the rest of the car ride. 
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
Only two?  I think I'd like to take a nap. Or maybe I would go shopping somewhere fun because that's impossible to do with Henry these days. 
who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
You know that guy in 500 Days of Summer? Yeah, that guy. 
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
I used to hate exercising but lately I've been really into running. It's a great way to work out any stress and frustration. Plus it's something I can't do with Henry (which = more alone time!!)
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
I usually pour a drink of some kind, catch up on blogs, and watch trashy late night tv with Garrison. 
ashley is a new friend here in the blog world and i am already so in love with her! she is also planning a wedding this year so we're like kindred spirits or something, right?

what is the condition of your house right this second? 
Well I live my my parents.. you know cuz Im poor (real life right thurr) So most days it's in pretty good condition but my room? Dis-as-ter. Like actually. And when I did live in my own apartment it was the same way. The rest of the house was clean but for some reason my room is always a mess. Le sigh oh well. 
what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
Skips naptime. Nap time is my everything. If I don't get that break I go nuts. And it makes it even worse because when she doesn't nap she turns into a grumpy tired crabby patty and I can't deal. Right now she is sleeping and I am a happy momma. 
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
Blog, read, watch cheesy tv, and if I had someone watching the baby... go get a Starbucks. 
who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
Right now? I'm kinda in my TrueBlood kick since the new season just started so Alexander Skarsgard yummo I love me some bad boy vampire action. 
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
Starbucks. It's a quick fix to my not so great days. More specifically an Iced venti skinny caramel macchiato. I die. 
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
If Mikey is home we cuddle up and catch up on whatever show we are into at the moment. Right now Weeds and Trueblood. If he's working late night I catch up on my blogging and reading. Pretty boring but it's the simple things that make me happy. 

stay tuned for next weeks, let's get real when i introduce you to that i have recently come across! want to be featured? is your house messier than mine you think? then email me, i would love to have you! hibabyblog (at) gmail (dot) com
