Prego Life…

A few weeks ago Cece, being the awesome big sister that she is, brought home a box of Oreo ice cream bars as a treat for her and her little sisters. Now usually you mention Oreo anything to me and I’m ALL FOR IT, but when she’d asked me had I wanted one, I’d respectfully declined as I didn’t quite have a taste for anything sweet that night.

Or so I thought.

Fast forward to Mimi walking around the house with hers, taking small bites here and there and then finally deciding that something else had peaked her interest and she no longer wanted her ice cream.

Mimi: “Here mommy, hold this.”

Me: “If you don’t want it just give it to daddy, he’ll eat it.”

Mimi: “Here daddy…”

Hubs: “No thank you baby, I don’t want it.”

Mimi: *looks back at me* “Daddy no want it.”

Me: “Okay Pooks, give it here.”

Mimi: *proceeds to run off to her sisters’ room*

Hubs: “You’re gonna eat that?”

Me: “No, I don’t even want it. Have you tasted it?”

Hubs: “Nope. Not interested.”

Me: *takes a small bite* “It tastes quite interesting to say the least…” *takes another small bite*

Five minutes later…

Me: *looks over to my husband shamefully with empty Popsicle stick in hand* “Now see, this is exactly why you don’t ask me to hold any food!!”

Simultaneous laughter.

Hubs: “That ice cream didn’t stand a chance.”



Being pregnant with twins so far has been the most amazing, scariest, strangest, physically demanding thing I’ve ever done in my life up to this point — and I’m only 20 weeks in. Well technically, 19 weeks and 6 days to be exact.Β My appetite has picked up tremendously over last two or so weeks which is a night and day difference between how I’d been feeling over the course of the pregnancy.

Weeks 1 – 7 were smooth sailing. I remember I was in the grocery store picking up something for dinner one day, while talking to my husband on the phone, and coming to the realization that I hadn’t started my cycle yet! Naturally like I’m sure every other woman has done when thinking she may be pregnant – I bought two pregnancy tests because I mean, can you REALLY just trust taking one?? Sure enough they both were positive and the very next day I called my OB and excitedly made my first appointment which was set for when I entered into my 9th week!

I am currently 16 weeks and 5 days pregnant with twin girls! Thanks to genetic testing, to check for any birth defects, we were able to find out the sex of the babies around 14 weeks. I tell you, science is AMAZING!

So naturally, being the HGTV and all things interior design freak that I am, all I’ve been thinking about since finding out what we’re having is how to decorate their nursery. I keep bouncing from my two fave sites – and Pinterest – for inspiration which seems to have made everything worse because every time I think I’ve found a color scheme that I love… I see another one and completely change my mind again.

Initially I was ALL over the color combo Coral and Teal. Especially after stumbling upon this amazing little site that lets you create your own crib bedding – This by far is my fave bedding combo that I created on their site:

A Happy Birthday

Over the weekend we celebrated our little rainbow baby Mimi’s third birthday! It’s SO hard to believe that three years have passed by already. She is truly the smartest, silliest, craziest, funniest little three year old that I’ve come across in a LONG time!

She’s in that phase now where every question she has is followed up with “but why??” which always leads to no less than 20 more questions after trying to explain something as simple as why mommy chose to make a right onto a certain street instead of a left.

Mimi taking it all in at her birthday party @ Chuck E. Cheese’s!

Meet The Simms!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by my blog!Β I figured it would be a great idea to formally introduce myself {and the fam} before I start bombarding you with posts about our craziness…LOL!

When I’d originally started blogging back in 2010, it was just me, my husband Drew and our three children, Trevon, Syera and Aleya. Fast forward sevens years later and we now have an utterly hilarious three year old named Mila and are currently expecting twins in November — whom we’ve had the pleasure of finding out at 14 weeks due to genetic testing that they’re both girls — and have already named Sophia and Madison.
