crazy fun

Life's been a little crazy lately. Fun, but crazy.

It all started with our camping trip. Which, I'm happy to report, I did survive. We actually had fun, although sleeping was a bear on our thin air mattresses. It went a little something like this:
Find a comfortable position on right side with pillow under belly for support.
Sleep 30 minutes.
Wake up feeling numb-tingly on right side.
Switch pillow and belly to left side.
Sleep 30 minutes.
Wake up feeling numb-tingly on left side.

I managed to squeeze in a couple naps in my in-laws camper and then all was well. I really am a fan of camping--it's just a lot easier when you're not 8 months pregnant. =)

We returned home on Monday to do laundry and pack in order to head back out on Tuesday. "Why?" you ask. Because we were heading here:

And here:


Here we are ready to take off on Griff's FIRST plane ride. Other than being louder than the average airplane passenger, he did great.

Actually, it was a work trip for Wes, but we managed to find some super cheap tickets and Griff and I tagged along. We had a blast. Between finding free tickets for Disney and Sea World and being well taken care of by Wes's work, we were spoiled like crazy. We were put up in the Disney Hilton and treated to some fabulous meals throughout the week.

The best I can do for a belly pic. We sat in the very front of the monorail into Disney.
The pilot even gave us pilot's licenses. =)

Oh...and my pregnancy hormones behaved themselves for the most part and I made it through the whole trip with only one emotional breakdown. And that was after spending about 8 hours walking around two theme parks in 100 degree weather. Not bad.

NOW it's back to reality. We are gonna have a baby in approximately ONE MONTH. Gulp. AND a little boy turning three in ONE WEEK. Sigh.

Gotta go.

am i crazy?

This prego mama is taking her big belly camping this weekend--yep, air-mattress-no air-conditioning-in-90-degree-heat-public-bathroom-tent-camping.
Is it just me--or am I crazy?

Hi. My name is Kaley and I'm an addict.

I never thought it would come to this.

I've become a coupon/free stuff junkie.

It's bad.

It all started because of Beckie's influence and now I'm having a hard time pulling myself away from my coupon clipping, ad-scanning, web-surfing addiction to even tell you about it.

My mind is overflowing with CVS extra bucks deals and Rite Aid single check rebates and Price Chopper's triple coupons and the sale prices of dozens of items.

Beckie tells me that in a month or so, I should be back to my normal self. I will no longer have nightmares about missing out on a free after rebate deal. I will stop making my husband wait for 45 minutes in the car while I just "run in" to CVS....for the third time that week. And I will be able to dedicate a little bit more time to the non-essentials in life like cooking and cleaning.

Meanwhile, you'll just have to wait on any further updates on my life. I've been meaning to post pictures of my cute little garden for the longest time. My latest belly pic is way overdue. I wanted to share with you about Griffin's very first VBS this week and the adorable way he grabbed his teacher's hand on the first day and took off without even looking back...sigh. Oh and update you on his potty-training SUCCESS (almost). And by the way, I'm going to have a baby in 7 weeks...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I just found some great deals on Pampers to cover that little bottom that will soon be here.
