It's Been Awhile....

My sister Nancy did this on her blog and asked everyone to do the same. Since I don't have anything more exciting to post about I thought it would be fun to do it too.

1. Its been awhile since... Shaun and I have been on a trip, just the two of us. We did go to Florida last spring, but Sydnie had to tag along because I was still nursing her. Before that, it was before I was even pregnant with Brianne who just turned 5, so it really has been awhile.

2. Its been awhile since... I have gone a day without hearing these words: Mommy I want ... But I am excited to have a break next weekend for my birthday. Shaun is taking care of the kids for a couple days while I go scrapbooking.

3. Its been awhile since... I have seen allot of my high school friends. I think the most recent was Rachel (Russell) Morrealle. But even that was about a year before I had Sydnie.

4. Its been awhile since... I have been able to see the grass. We have gotten so much snow here, one day I think it snowed 13 inches in just one day!

5. Its been awhile since... we have taken a family vacation. Actually we never have. We have done small trips to Yellowstone and camping. So I am very excited to announce that I have finally purchased tickets to Florida this spring. I've been trying to get this done for almost a year now and it is exciting to know it is actually going to happen.

6. Its been awhile since... I haven't had to change a diaper. 17 months to be exact. I've never been able to find a good system to getting rid of diapers either. I finally purchased a diaper genie which I never use because it gets filled up after only a day and a half. So, it sits there empty, and the dirty diapers just pile up all day, until I finally take them out to the garbage at the end of the day. Gross, I know but if anyone has any better suggestions let me know.

So that's it for me, Tag your it. I would love to hear what its been awhile for you. I'm looking forward to reading your posts.
