let's get real, with some of your favorite mamas! v.5

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?
have you met jill and corbin yet? your missing out if you haven't-she is one of the sweetest mama's in blogland; she is always coming up with something super fun for her and her super curly haired handsome mister to do everyday. i have had the pleasure of being real life friends with miss honeysett and can't wait to celebrate little corbin birthday with them this month!
blog. twitter.
what is the condition of your house right this second? 
well considering i could barely fill the coffee pot up with water and drank out of a snowman mug this morning i'd say bad. the kitchen at least. dishes are the least favorite chore for both ryan and i so it always seems like the last thing to get done. the rest of the house is cleaned up though! pick up toys and fluff pillows? that's the easy stuff!
what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
hhhmmm...i wouldn't say it drives me crazy but he throws stuff when he gets frustrated. i guess it drives me crazy not knowing a way to help him through his frustration without hurling trucks across the room!
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
i'd probably sit on my butt and catch up on trashy tv on my tivo, blog, or work on getting better at my sewing machine skillz.
who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
oh geez. uhm, recently i watched the whole my so called life series and there is something about jared leto that I CAN NOT GET OVER! so, him!
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
getting outside! corbin could wake up a total crab apple but the second we step outside he's a whole different kid! he loves it outside and i love watching him explore and have a fun time running around. and coffee! always coffee!
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
i ususally plop down on the couch, laptop on lap (editing pics, twittering, blogging), husband to my side, and watch tv.
this is stephanie and she possibly is the cutest EVER, ok well maybe her little one hallie may be just a little bit cuter. i thought this would be the perfect week to show off this adorable lady and blog, because...guess what? it is her wedding anniversary this week and i think you should totally head over and wish her a million more years of happiness.
what is the condition of your house right this second? 
Clean! I really can't function without it being that way. I'm a complete and total neat freak, through and through.
what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
Climbing on stuff, then bouncing. Really? Why is there the need to bounce on every.little.thing?! 
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
Haha, that's usually naptime for me! Luckily, I'm raising a mini neat freak who likes to help me clean throughout the day. I usually blog and sometimes nap! Oh man, do I love to nap. 
who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
Adrian Grenier. Those lips, those eyes... Go ahead, google him. Then come back here and give me a very well deserved thank you.
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
Fro-yo and Target. It's pretty common for me to make a stop at our local fro-yo place, then run into the Target next door and browse. So calming to the soul.
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
Freakin' eat some oreos and watch extremely dumb TV.
this is mandy; my friend, and wedding photographer-yep!! this girl can take a photo for reals and is blessed enough to call that her job. her adorable bennett is absolutely hilarious and we just love getting together with them for play dates and girls night outs!

what is the condition of your house right this second? 
Oh gosh, it's a disaster right now. My little tornado has made his rounds pulling everything off of the shelves and counters. what is something that your nugget(s) do that drive you absolutely crazy? 
He climbs onto the computer desk. That drives me nuts because he starts yanking at the cables on the computer and banging on the monitor. Ugh. 
if you suddenly were granted two uninterrupted laundry and dishwasher free hours daily what would you do?
Ooooh well I would probably be editing client sessions and if I didn't have any work to do, I would catch up on my DVR. who is number one on your elevator list? who you can…well, grope without consequence if ever caught in an elevator with said person?
Franklin Gutierrez from the Seattle Mariner's baseball team :) Yum.  
what is your secret weapon to survive a not great day?
Lots of junk food. Oh wait, is that why I'm not losing any weight?? lol 
ok, now the most important question; at the end of the day when the house is finally quite how do you unwind? 
I write/read blogs. I love to just sit in the peace & quiet and write about my day and read about other people's lives. Yah, I'm super nosey like that. But hey, isn't that what blogging is for?? To peek into other people's lives and be inspired?  


stay tuned for next weeks, let's get real! 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
