What to blog, what to blog

Besides having the cutest baby ever my blogging ideas have slowly disappeared. It seems all i think about is Finn and how stinkin cute he is. Seriously I want to just squeeze him all day long. Plus he is becoming an amazing sleeper, which makes me love him a tad bit more. He really is amazing but i wanted to blog about something different. SO i thought and thought and then i realized I have way to many guilty pleasures. I am a total nerd and get hooked on these ridiculous shows but I just can't help it when Finn is sleeping and everything else is done to turn on the TV to find myself engulfed in just stupidity. Number 1 secret is Jerseylicious. Just by the name you may want to stop being my friend but seriously I don't know what it is about stupid Jersey people but they make me want to meet them and ask if they are being serious. It's not a slutty show or anything just about some hair salon but oh the drama filled with over the top hair, makeup, clothes, catfights and accents is so entertaining, I just can't seem to turn away. When scanning the channels I try not to scan all the way to style because I know it well be on and then 3 hours of my day has disappeared. Number 2 secret is 16 & Pregnant/ Teen Mom. I think I just like watching this show because it makes me feel better about myself. I'm glad I am not nearly as stupid as the girls on that show. But honestly I can't blame it all on the girls and the guys they pick because their parents are just as stupid, it must be genetics. Maybe my problem is with getting sucked into these shows I just like to see how miserable these people are. Maybe my worst day isn't nearly as bad as the girls on these shows. Maybe my guilty pleasures are there to make me feel better about myself and life. Maybe I'm going to Hell because I find a little bit of happiness in others misery. Maybe these shows are put on TV to teach me what not to do when raising my children so they don't end up on reality shows. I already know number one thing to do while raising my kids is to not move to the South because I'm pretty sure every episode on 16 & pregnant is in the South. Maybe I don't need a reason to like these shows and I like them because they are so entertaining and that's that. Yup I'm a nerd and should be reading books on how to raise Mr. Finn, but in the end I'm happy and a happy Tori filled with guilty pleasures makes for a happy mom and wife.

Latest and the greatest

Both Joe and my computer decided to stop working around the same time. A month later Joe's choose to let us use the external hard drive again, so now I can upload pictures. The past month we have been busy with Finn and it seems the busy-ness(?) won't stop, but we love every second of it.

The first Sunday in November was cousin Chloe's blessing and our first day back to church as a family. Finn and I then decided to take a break from church again until his blessing, we like hanging out just us 2 and not sharing with other people.

Thanksgiving rolled around and Finn was not a fan. I don't know if he was just confused as to why Dad was home during the week, but he was not a happy camper that day. A fussy day led to our first full nights rest. Thank you turkey for making Finn sleep his first 9 hours.

Of course we had to get a picture of Finn & Chloe on their first Thanksgiving. Plus they both had on some amazing shoes.

The following Sunday was Lucy's blessing. Here are the kids finally hanging out together. Finn just relaxed while Eloise and Lucy fought over him.

For my birthday Joe took me out with no Finn. Though we were sad we didn't have our little guy to stare at we still had fun. We went to a movie and dinner followed by a little shopping. It was nice to go to a movie because we haven't been to one in so long and that's my favorite.

On my actual birthday we went to take Finn to see Santa. We practiced his smiles at home, but once we saw Santa it was all frowns and tears.

Thanks to Emilie and her magic skills of photography. Maybe next year Finn well like Santa a lttle more.

December 4th Ethan got baptized. I couldn't think of a better day to get baptized.

December 5th we blessed Finn. We had all our family and friends there and loved sharing that special day with them.

Look how stinkin cute that boy is!

Other than keeping up with Finn and the holidays Joe and I just debate who is the best. Really for about the past 2 weeks Joe and I have been racing into to bed to see who is first the best. I of course am always first the best Joe just has a hard time accepting it and cheats often. Our life right now is nice, simple and happy.
