Doe, a deer...a female deer.

Yesterday was spent kind of lazily as I waited around for our pest control company to come spray the house in the morning. We have about a million spiders that I have killed this spring/summer. I just reached this point after a spider was repelling down the wall toward my son's pack-n-play that I couldn't take it anymore. Usually, I'd just squash them and move on, but we don't know the day our little man will decide to be mobile. So, it was time to make sure he wasn't somehow finding a dead bug on the floor & eating it! ICK!

The rest of the day was very lazy. I mean, I didn't do anything I needed to do. I just know that my days as a SAHM are fastly escaping with my little boy. So instead of cleaning, I played with him. Fair trade? I think so.
Once it finally got cooler (um, 90 degrees versus 95, haha!), we decided to go on a walk in a neighboring subdivision that has lots of big, big trees & winding roads. It's funny because we don't live in the country by any stretch of the imagination (much to the dismay of my hubs). However, we saw this little mama doe with her little fawn. Quite the most precious thing I've seen in a long, long time!

I'm DETERMINED to gt this baby weight off, and my husband is wanting to train for a half marathon. I might let him do that alone, but he suggested a looooonnnnnnggggg (4 miles) walk last night, so we went with him. Glad we did!
Seeing wildlife always reminds me of my trips and summers in Montana. I miss Montana a whole, whole lot and pray for the people of the West quite often.

Quite random, but I'm certain my twenty year old self would greatly laugh at my thirty something self about this blog post. "Really? This is all you can blog about? Baby deer & getting your baby weight off? How lame are you?"

I really wish I had a blog from 1998. That would be so much fun to look back on now, wouldn't it? Motivation enough to keep this blog going so my fifty something self can come back and make fun of my thirty something self.

(That was really random. I do apologize.)


At any rate, this little sighting of our furry friends from a Disney movie scene just made my little night last night. We walked our four miles, and maybe we can go back sometime with a camera that is not my phone. :)

Today we're heading to my in laws home to pick up my broken now fixed car. My father in law can fix anything you give him, and we rarely put our cars in the real shop if he can fix it instead. I'm looking forward to having my car back! I don't really mind though since I'm currently not working & hubs is home by 10 am. It's not like I didn't have access to a car. Poor old thing (the car) is now 12 years old, but she is paid for! So hopefully she'll give us a few more good years before we have to shell out money for another one. Man, I'm so Dave Ramsey these days it is ridiculous. My twenty year old self (that bought this car) just wanted something shiny, new, all the bells, all the whistles, & sporty. My thirty year old self is annoyed by my two-door coupe that isn't really adequate for a family or small child. I wish I could go tell twenty year old self, "You'll be driving this for a while. Get something more practical not pretty." My, how we change as we age!

Y'all have a good weekend! Enjoying meeting many of you through our blog hop! :)


  1. I can't stand spiders!! I would have called pest control too! I love the deer pictures! I wish we had deer just walking around our neighborhood!! That's great that your hubby is training for a half marathon! I used to do running before getting pregnant! I'm thinking about training for one too after baby arrives! You both should try to track your runs and walks. I've used it to track all of my workouts.

  4. Hello! It's Sockitmama stopping by. It's going to be hotter than all get-out today here as well and I wish I could just do nothing. Unfortunately, the kids have a library event and two birthday parties. But, at the end of the day, I'm having a margarita, a swim and that's it!

  5. Stopping by from Jenna's Journey!! Love the pictures of the deer, the littlest one is just too cute! Hope you are having a great weekend:)
