I love Fall!!

I asked earlier on Facebook what everyone's favorite part of Fall was, I have to say I agree with all of the answers (except the Anniversary lol)

I really love the leaves changing! The picture above is the mountain that is behind our house and I love all of the colors!

(sorry, my camera is horrible!)

I wish it could stay like this all year round! We went for a bike ride as a family today, we have a canyon near us and I love how the trees form a canopy.

Unfortunately on the way down from the canyon I made the mistake of opening my mouth to talk to my husband and a bug flew right in!

It was so gross!! Unfortunately it's just a hazard when you are biking, but this one was bigger than usual! Tongue out

I hope everyone else had a great Fall weekend! (minus the bugs!)

Milestones

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Today is my baby girls 3rd birthday! The only problem is I'm realizing shes not much of a baby anymore!

I felt like her first year just flew by, and I don't even know where the second one went to.

Now I can't believe it's been 3 years! She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I new when I was pregnant I would love her, but I had no idea how much.

I had such a horrible pregnancy, I was just so relived to have it finally over with. When she came out, I just couldn't believe how much I loved her.

I tried to spend every minute with her at the hospital, The nurses kept telling me that I should have her go to the nursery, so I could get some rest, but I just didn't want to let go of her.

Now that she's 3, there are days I wish I could still take them up on that offer! Laughing

She's too young to read this, but I want her to know that I love her so much! She is my world, and I will always do everything in my power to be the best Mama I can be.

You'll always be my baby girl...

Stuck!

So I'm sitting here doing posts...

Usually I just type away and then look at it before I publish to make sure it's accurate.

(and hopefully minimal grammar errors Laughing ha, ha!)

When I realized all the letter L's were missing from the post!

So I went to push it and realized it was completely stuck! Come to find out my little angel spilled her drink on it!

Not on the whole keyboard just the "L". I tried cleaning it out, but even now I have to really push down on it! So if you see an "L" missing in a post you wi know why! Laughing

You can't say kiddos don't make our lives interesting.

Yay Free Pizza!

Monday, September 26, 2011

So guess what we had for dinner? (no... not glass Laughing) Free Domino's pizza! I hope everyone else got some!

We have been doing a no eating out plan for the past little bit, so it was nice to eat out for free!!

I was a little surprised at how tiny the pizza was, I had to make a salad with it, to really have it be a meal.

It was pretty good pizza, but I don't think I would pay the full price of $7.99 for it.

The kiddos really liked it!

It kind of made me think though... when I tell people that I have a deal blog that I post a lot of freebies on, sometimes I get the very negative

comment that "nothing in life is free". I hate when people say that because there is so much that is free!

I can't imagine not going after freebies or trying to get the best deal. I can't imagine how much money I would be wasting!

Some freebies take a little work or the right timing, but if you can grab them I feel it's worth it.

Every freebie you get is less money you would spend! We have a very small food budget, so anytime we can offset it with a freebie I'm happy!!

Now... there is no way you will ever be able to grab every single freebie out there, but just grab what you can!

Plenty of thing in life are free, you just have to go after them! Laughing

What did you have for dinner?

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Today was just a bad day at our house! Full of crying, fits, tantrums, searching for lost keys for half the day and to top it all off... glass for dinner.

Glass isn't what I was planning on serving for dinner, but I went to flip over a steak that I was broiling this evening and my Pyrex dish completely shattered!

Apparently, it was way too much heat. I had glass all over my kitchen and as you can see a ton of glass in the oven.

I hate cleaning up glass, it's such a pain to get every little piece and with little ones you have to really make sure you get everything.

So we ate mashed potatoes! It was the only thing I had made that didn't require the oven.

I'm a pretty positive person, but today was one of those days I just wanted to be done with!

I hope everyone else had a better day!

We all have our own trials and struggles, but we also all have the prospect of tomorrow being better!

I hope whatever you struggled with today, that you will have a better day tomorrow!

I know I will have a better day, by just not having any dishes explode. Laughing

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
