Things I know a lot about

1. Oreos. Mainly the Double Stuf variety.

2. Child birth. I have done it twice. Once with an good epidural, and once with an epidural that wore of after 20 minutes. You want to know about what happens before, during, and after? You come to me. Not only have I done it twice, but I am not afraid to talk about the gross stuff. Sorry mom, I know that I am not very lady like when it comes to that stuff, but they say that well behaved women rarely make history!

3. Miscarriages. I have had three. I believe that God gave me these trials for a reason. I have had several friends come to me after they have had miscarriages to talk. I am thankful that something good can come out of it.

4.Orange County. Yes, I grew up there. It was awesome. Be jealous, it is okay. I went to the beach every day and had the best tan. Okay that is a lie, I was totally butt white and went to the beach once in a while. Mainly I hung out at In N Out or Del Taco. Yummmmmmmm

5. Breastfeeding. Most is from personal experience. But some of it is just from reading. You can call me Mrs. Cow. And yes, for those of you wondering, I plan to breastfeed Dylan until he is 14 years old. He will also be rear facing in a 5 point harness car seat until 14 years old as well. 

6. Overprotective parenting. J/K.

7. The movie Cars. Ask me anything. I can literally quote the entire movie from beginning to end. So can Dylan. His first sentence will probably be "I'm happier than a tornader in a trailer park!"

8. Food. Well, mostly junk food. Although I do enjoy healthy eating. We try to eat organic and whole foods at our house. Double Stuf Oreos are not a whole food or organic, I know, but I can cram the whole oreo in my mouth! That has to count for something.

9. Friends. No, not friends, although I have several of those. I mean FRIENDS. Ask me anything about this 10 season long tv show. I have been watching it on DVD for years. I have a tv in Dylan's room to watch it while I nurse him at night. It is the only way that I can stay awake during those 3 am feedings. In the year since Dylan has been born I have watched every episode at lest 6 times.

10. Sleeping. I am a pro. Mainly about the lack of sleeping. See # 9. I am up so often that I know every episode inside and out. I am also a pro at covering dark circles, napping anytime, anywhere, and drinking caffeine.


  1. Carrie, I love you! You are absolutely awesome! I hope all is well with you and your family!
