Hamper Malfunction {Frequent Frustrations}






What is it with men and not understanding how hampers work? When I read Whit's post about her dirty laundry woes I was laughing my butt off, because Darren does almost the exact same thing! The dirty clothes are rarely ever in the hamper, but better yet, they're two inches away from it! There are pretty much two piles of Darren's clothes in our bedroom. One right next to the bed (and the hamper), and then another right in front of the shower.

But wait, there's one thing he does that is better. When I was pregnant with Quinn I was a terrible, horrible, awful nag -and I will fully admit it- about the dirty clothes on the floor. All you mamma's will probably know why I made such a big deal about it. The farther you get out of that first trimester, the harder it is to bend over. I'll be damned if I was going to exert that much effort, and risk not being able to get back up, to pick up his dirty clothes that he could EASILY put in the hamper. Seriously, move your arm over 2 inches before you drop that shirt. SOOOOOO he got a lot better at picking up his dirty clothes. While I was pregnant. 2 years later he's almost back to pre-pregnancy mess making status. But, hold on, leaving clothes on the floor wasn't what I was getting to - so he started picking them up, and he still does some times, but then he goes on to do this....
UNDONE: Dirty clothes on top of the hamper
THAT IS AN EMPTY HAMPER! Apparently lifting the lid is just too much. At least they're not always on the floor, but after a few days a huge pile ends up on top of the hamper, and we have throw them all off to open the lid and put them in. Silly boy. If that lid is not open the clothes go on top, without fail, every time. In all honesty this cracks me up more than frustrates me. Does he really think it's better to have a pile on top or the hamper rather than on the floor? Either way they're not in it. What silly habits does you hubby have?

Grocery Shopping {Frequent Frustrations}






I don't know about you but ever since I have had kids I like a one stop shop, meaning I like to be able to do all my weekly grocery shopping in one place. That place, for me, would be Walmart (Well technically I go to Costco about once a month as well but on a weekly basis it is Walmart). Walmart is the cheapest and I can get all my food, bathroom supplies, cleaning supplies, and office supplies there.

{The Undone Blog} Grocery Shopping Frustrations

So Yes, I like Walmart and it has a lot of benefits for me but one of my BIGGEST frustrations is every week I got they are always out of at least one thing that is on my list that week. It is usually something different each week but it is still so annoying. I hate having to go to another store just for one or two items. This last week it was crystal light water mix ins, more specifically the lemonade one. This is like a necessity in our home. We all love it and drink one a day. Do you see that huge empty space on the shelf yeah that is a lot of missing product right there. The week before they were out of the paper towels I get, so I had to get the more expensive ones, a couple weeks before that they were out of the bagels we like and chocolate milk mix,  a couple weeks before that they were out of nutella, which if you know my love for nutella that is just uncalled for, that is a bit dramatic but you get the point it is frustrating! Does anyone else have this frustration? Am I just shopping on the wrong day?

Thanksgiving Roll Call!

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? If you're anything like us, it was crazy busy! Thanksgiving was so crazy around Undone, that 2 of our ladies missed the roll call! Oops! But we'll stiff give you a look at what Tiffany and Hailey were up to.

Thanksgiving is the BEST! I always love it because my Grandpa and Grandma usually come down from Montana. This year was double fun because my aunt and uncle made it down with my cousins too! Parker LOVES playing with my cousins, I think they were glued to the playstation the whole night. My hair looked a lot cute in the morning, but after spending half the day at Darren's mom's house with his family and then going straight to my parents house for the rest of the night, I lost a little bit of my oomph! But it's ok, it was worth it :)

I love thanksgiving! I spent the day with my wonderful family. We ate, shopped, played games, ate, shopped, and ate some more! It was glorious! And can I just say, my family makes the best thanksgiving meal ever! I had just returned home from Heber City when I took this pict :) I look like I'm in a food coma! Hahaha!

Daddy Dinnertime {Daily Diaries}






Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! Want to know what I'm thankful for?






I'm thankful for Darren making dinner and I don't even have to think about it. Did I mention that I hate cooking? Because I hate cooking. Even when it's simple things, I still hate cooking. I offer to have Thanksgiving dinner at my house if someone else makes the food. I'm cool like that. I especially hate cooking when it's complicated, time consuming, and involves chopping, dicing, and any kind of multiple step process. So it's even better when Darren cooks that he makes things that involve all of the above, like HOMEMADE PIZZA! Oh, and it's even better that Quinn LOVES to help, and I get to totally relax! How often does that happen?

Yay for yummy homemade pizza that I didn't have to lift a finger for!!! AND he even cleaned it up! What's the best thing your husband cooks? I think I could live with Darren cooking everything. He makes much better things than me!

Thankful {Daily Diaries}








Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! So of course this time of year gets me thinking of what I am thankful for and all the blessings in my life.


I am so thankful that I have a hard working husband. I am thankful that he works so hard in school and is getting such a good degree in something he loves so that he is able to provide for our family and I am able to stay home with these two adorable little boys. I truly feel so blessed to be their mom. I don't feel like I deserve these amazing babies. They have taught me so much and their spirit is truly amazing. I want to be the mom they deserve. As hard as it is sometimes to be a mom, as crazy as it can get, as exhausting and unglamorous it can be at times, I would not trade those moments for anything in the world because one smile, thank you, kiss or hug from these two makes everything worth it. Makes all the worry, craziness, and hard times worth it, because there are way more good times than hard times. There are more smiles than tears. I love to watch them learn, I love to see them interact with their friends, with each other. I love the innocence and unselfishness of my little ones. So yes, I am feeling very thankful. Thankful for my life, for my husband, for my boys, for the chance to carry and raise my babies, for the chance to learn and grow, for the chance to stay home with them and not miss a thing. I feel blessed. I feel thankful. I feel love.

And I am wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope you will sit down and really think of the things you are thankful for in your life, reflect on your blessings, and let those in your life know how much you love and appreciate them this Thanksgiving and holiday season.

It's Time for Change {Daily Diaries}







I try to a be a good mom. I try to be a good wife. A good Photographer. A good Daughter. Sister. Friend. Church member. I do it all in a lot of ways, I read books, ask for advice, watch other's examples, etc.. If there is one thing I have learned from all of this, its that the most important way to be all of thee above, its to take care of yourself first.

That, my friends, is hard.

When being a mother takes up, what?, lets say 85% of my time, I have to divide the other 15% among the other 6 things. That is just not enough, and then add to it to take care of myself? For reals? Who can do that?!

So I am going to be experimenting. This week I am going to make an effort to wake up an hour before the boys, and work out. I am sure I will fail at this more than I will succeed, but I know what makes me feel better, its being active and working out.

I will be Instagraming each morning I do it, just for fun, so if you wanna follow along with me, my instagram is katisnaps.

I will even challenge you guys to do the same. Decide what you like to do the most, aside from with your kids and hubby, and find time to do it. Use hashtag #undonemomtime and lets follow along with everyone.

See ya bright and early. :)

Giving Thanks {Daily Diaries}





For some reason every year when November rolls around, I always find something to be grateful for. MEANING: I go through some sort of trial. I will tell you a few of my personal trials and hopefully you can not judge me for my feelings.

November 2nd, 2010. I was 13 weeks pregnant. I hadn't been to see my Dr. yet because Jared had just started a new job and we had to wait to the beginning of November for our new insurance to kick in. Waiting to see my little baby was torture! The weekend before, we had just told our families that we were pregnant. Everyone was so excited! As it was to be the first grandchild/niece/nephew on both sides of our family. Anyways. Jared couldn't go to the Dr. with me that day because he had just started his new job. He actually sent flowers to my work before I left to my Drs. appointment. This is what the card said....


He's a keeper :)

   As I said, Jared couldn't come with me because of work, SO I enlisted my mom and my sister to come with me (They didn't hesitate:)). I filled out the paper work, peed in a cup, and got a goody bag full of pregger stuff. I was so excited! We finally were all seated in the room and my Dr. came in and was telling me "Congratulations!" and, "You're the perfect age to have a baby. You're in your prime!". It felt so good to hear.

   Then the ultrasound. He put the cold jelly on my tummy and I anxiously looked at the screen for my little one. He was quiet. He pointed to the screen, "There it is....now....when did you say you took a pregnancy test?" I told him when I had taken it. He finally stopped the ultrasound and sat me up. "I'm afraid your baby isn't developing correctly", He said, "I can't find a heartbeat. You're going to miscarry soon. I'm sorry. There was nothing that you could've done. Sometimes these things just happen."

   I felt like I was in a bad dream. Something you only see in the movies. I held back the tears. I peeked at my mom out of the corner of my eye and she was crying. The Dr. continued, "I want you to come back and see me in a week if you haven't miscarried yet. Here is a prescription for some pain pills that you can take when you start to miscarry." I kept thinking, this is going to hurt? I didn't sign up for this. How is it that 'I' am going to miscarry? My mom never miscarried. I'm healthy! He just said that I was in my prime! Did I eat something that I shouldn't have? Did I take too hot of a shower? Did I sleep on my stomach for too long? Whats wrong with me? Something is wrong with me. What am I going to tell Jared? How am I going to tell Jared? Is Jared going to think that there is something wrong with me?

   In the midst of all of this, I was walked up to the front desk and asked to come back in a week. I drove to my parents house and waited until Jared got off work so I could go pick him up and tell him in person. I didn't want to tell him over the phone. So I drove to his work in SLC and picked him up. He got in the car and jokingly asked "So you're still pregnant, right?!" I shook my head and said no. I started to cry. Then I felt Jared's arms wrap around me. He started to cry too. We sat in that parking lot for about 45 minutes before we could start the drive back to Ogden. I can't remember anything from there on out.

   I cried a lot that night. I pretty much didn't stop until I fell asleep. I took that next week off of work and hunkered down at my grandparents or at my parents for the remainder of the week since I didn't know when or where or if I was going to miscarry. My whole entire family was so supportive. I appreciated them so much. But the people who helped me out the most were my grandparents. My grandma and grandpa lost their first child, my aunt Shelly, when she was only a month or so old. Even though the loss was different, they knew what it felt like to experience a loss of a child. They talked to me and comforted me and I felt at peace in their home.

   A week later, I never miscarried. I went in to the Dr. and he did another ultrasound and confirmed that there still wasn't a heartbeat. He said that he wanted me to wait another week to miscarry on my own, but I could get a dnc instead. I chose the dnc. I couldn't stand the thought of having to go through another week of waiting for the unknown. Mentally, I couldn't handle it. I wanted to move on. So the next day I had the dnc done. It was so scary. I didn't know what was going to happen or what exactly they were going to do. I just knew that I was going to be separated from my baby. It was heartbreaking.

   Right before the Dr. put me under, an older nurse looked at me and took my hand and said "I know that everyone is saying that they're sorry and that everything is going to be ok. And everything is going to be ok. But. I know that you really wanted this baby." I started to cry a bit and nodded yes as I fell asleep. I woke up not even 45 mins later and I was in a room with Jared and my mom. It was over.

   Here is a post from my personal blog. I feel like it best expresses how I was feeling at the time.



November 10th 2010


I don't know how I feel about this post yet...but I feel like I need to get it out. In a non-pathetic sort of way. I don't want sympathy. And I definitely don't want to throw myself a pitty party. All I wish to convey is my love for my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, my Husband and my Family. I recently went through the hardest trial of my life. (so far.) And although I never thought I would ever experience or want to experience this trial, I'm grateful that I did.


I've learned so much.

I can see the Tender Mercies of the Lord all around me, I otherwise wouldn't have been able to experience.

I Found a greater reverence for life.

I Found an appreciation for my body and what it's capable of. (weird, I know...)

I Found a deeper more profound love for my husband. I couldn't have gone through this without him.

I Found a greater devotion to do my Heavenly Fathers will, and not my own.

I Found that when all goes wrong, the people that will be there for you are the ones that have been there for you your whole life. Truth.

I Found out how I function under a great deal of sorrow and stress.

I Found a great number of family and friends who have gone through thesame thing as me.

I Found I'm not alone.

Thank you to my devoted husband who takes care of me and loves me unconditionally. Thank you to my family. Dad, Mom, Lib, Couls. For lending a shoulder to cry on, for keeping me from going crazy. Grandma and Grandpa Stock for numerous phone calls and lots of love. Aunt Niki and cousin Maddi for coming to see me. That meant a lot. Mom and Dad Gomez for, again, numerous phone calls full of love and support. Grandma Gomez for sending love my way continuously. Numerous friends who sent texts, facebook comments/messages and phone calls. My neighbors who gave me tons of support and love and who made sure I had a dinner every night. I feel so blessed. Thank you, everyone, for your kinds words and support. Every word was and still is greatly appreciated. I hope I can move on, be brave, learn from the past, and press forward with diligence. Hopefully one day soon, Jared and I will have a little one :)



 

   After writing this post in 2010 I felt like maybe this was Heavenly Fathers way of telling me that it wasn't the right time for us to have a baby. I came to terms with that. Jared and I could have a longer period of time with 'just the two of us'. I liked that. BUT. Not even a month later I was pregnant again. With Grace! I was a complete wreck for the first 15 weeks. But after getting past the "scary" part of pregnancy(what part isn't though?), I calmed down and was able to really enjoy the life that was growing inside of me. Now I have a beautiful baby.

   So, for the second Thanksgiving in a row, I'm Thankful to have a healthy baby girl. She truly is the apple of our eye. Everything she does is adorable. (even when she farts. whats up with that?) Like I said 2 years ago, I'm grateful for trials. It gives us a new perspective and a helps us to be thankful for the things that we already have. Join me, undone and all, in being extra Thankful for the blessings in our lives. We truly are blessed. I hope that this post might be a help to some of you who are going through tough times. Whatever your trial might be. You aren't alone.

Escape Artist {Frequent Frustration}






Ahhhh! Quinn can get out of her crib!!! I was dreading moving her over to a "big girl bed" because she stays up and plays in her crib forever before falling asleep, so I'm feeling likes she'll NEVER sleep if she can actually get out of bed. And now it looks like she can.

She was making noise for an unusually long time yesterday, so I decided to go check on her. Well when I got to the door I could see the doorknob wobbling side to side, and as soon when I opened it, there was little Quinn, STANDING right in front of me.  And there was also this...

The Undone Blog: Toddler escaping the crib {Frequent Frustrations}

To make matters worse, I found a nearly empty bottle of teething tablets among all of this! I had a little bit of a freak out and called poison control ASAP, because I was sure that bottle was almost full before! Luckily everything was fine. They told me that teething tablets are usually harmless, and they were right, Quinn had no negative reaction whatsoever. Now ALL of the lotion, diaper creams, and teething gels/tablets have been moved from the changing table, that I thought was out out of reach, to the closet, so we won't have anymore scares like that!

But I still don't know what I'm going to do about getting Quinn to sleep! Last night she went to bed fine (because she was super tired from skipping her nap!) and didn't get out then or this morning, so we'll see how nap goes today.  Any advise on keeping your little ones from playing during nap time? We were never successful in this area with Parker.




P.S. There are 8 days left to help out our friend Erin!

Potty Break {Frequent Frustrations}






I hate to say it, but we are failing at potty training. If you don't remember, we decided to officially start potty training Quinn last week. Well the 3 day method DID NOT work for us! Not even close. The first day I cleaned up a lot of pee, and Quinn was completely uninterested in the potty. She loved the app I downloaded on the iPad and wanted to watch the music video on there over and over, but she still didn't want to go potty. And that pretty much never changed. In fact she got to the point where she refused to sit on the potty. We went out and let her pick out her very own Elmo potty, thinking that might make her more interested in sitting on the potty.
Well it actually did! For a day. She loves the flusher and definitely likes her Elmo potty better than the Diago one, but she lost interest in sitting on it. She did however stand in it and pee 3 times.  I suppose that was a step up from standing in the middle of the living room and peeing... But the next day she was uninterested in using the potty again and didn't use the potty at all.

So I've decided to take a little break. I won't lie, I'm worn out and tired of cleaning toddler pee out of my carpet. Quinn simply doesn't care about using the potty. I'm going to give her some more time to get  more interested in the potty before we go diaper-less again. I'm thinking she may not recognize the feeling of needing to go potty and maybe she needs to develop a little more bladder control before she's ready. I don't know, I just need a break for myself! How long did it take your little ones to catch on?

DIY Toddler Workbench {Practicing Pinterest}




                                                                                Source: designdazzle.blogspot.com via Whitney on Pinterest


I found this super cute tool bench on Pinterest a while back, put it in my boys room board and I just couldn't stop thinking about it. I told Ty about it and we decided to be on the look out for a nightstand to turn into a tool bench for our Maddux. I just loved this idea because it is much cuter and will last a lot longer than the plastic ones you buy at the toy stores. It would be less expensive too which is always a plus for me

The Undone Blog: DIY play workbench

I was at the DI one day browsing around and found a brown wood cabinet for only $5. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for the tool bench. So we brought it home and got to work. To find the Full Tutorial on my work bench go HERE.

We painted the cabinet red, painted some MDF board with chalkboard paint for the work surface and attached peg board to store his toy tools.

The chalkboard work surface was a hit with this little one! This is one of his very favorite Toys and plays "fix it" multiple times a day.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due {Daily Diaries}






Autumn is a cruel mistress, we've barely got time to work off all the Halloween candy we stole from our kids, before it's time to stuff our faces with turkey! Then it's all downhill from there for diets. Yet, while our butts and thighs might not agree, this is often the best time of the year. In honor of the wonderful month of November, and the upcoming holidays, we're going to take some time from our Undone lives to talk about the things we're thankful for. Now it's time to kick this series off right by introducing you all to a really special lady who all of us at Undone are VERY thankful for.

Say Hello to Erin of Jingleheimer Design


Without this chick, this blog would not exist. Well it might exist, but in a much less cute, much less functional form. Erin is our oh so amazing blog designer, IT girl, sounding board, tie breaker, and honorary 5th member of Undone. We are SO thankful for Erin's generosity and the overwhelming amount of support and help she's given us in getting this blog up and going. Ok, what I really mean is the support she is still giving us.

So let's all take a minute to admire Erin's awesome skills and hard work. She has an awesome eye for design and has pretty much custom made all of our graphics. Skills to pay the bills. And Undone wasn't her first rodeo. She also redesigned Kati's photo blogWhit's personal blog, and Twist Me Pretty, which is run by another one of our high school acquaintances - not to mention she has her own blog and Etsy shop. She also offers custom blog design services from her site Jingleheimer Blog Design. You go girl!

You can see why we are so thankful for Erin. She has put in SO many hours making our blog look exactly the way we want it, and she has put up with all of our crap. I should really say mine and Kati's crap (we don't always see eye to eye). Erin can probably add "mediator" to her resume, because some how she always pulls out something to please us all. So now it's time we give a little back. Everything Erin has done for us has been on her own time and out of the goodness of her heart. Even with all of the demand we've put on her, she still finds time to be awesome in her everyday life. A few months ago Erin's dad, Brent, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.

Not only rare, but aggressive. Brent was lucky to have made it to a doctor in time - he was in Mexico the day before the diagnosis! One more day on that vacation could have been the difference between life and death for Erin's dad. Talk about shocking. You should really read the whole story here, she and her family are AMAZING!  I won't lie, I hadn't talked to Erin in years, and cried when I read the news about her dad. But just in time for Thanksgiving, Erin and her family have something be extra thankful for, as of a few weeks ago, Brent is leukemia free! Pretty sure I cried when I read that news too! However, this great news comes with a little gloomy shadow - medical expenses. Boo.

There are almost $100,000 in expenses that are NOT COVERED by insurance. Ouch! But we have an opportunity to really show Erin how thankful we are for all the time she's given us all while dealing with this huge event in her life, a fund raiser has been set up in her dad Brent's name to help the family cover the extra costs. So for all of you ladies out there who love our blog, help us show Erin how thankful we are to her for making it possible, follow the link below and donate to her family!

HELP ERIN'S DAD CONTINUE TO FIGHT LEUKEMIA! DONATE NOW!

This event will end on Thanksgiving, so take a minute to think about everything you're thankful for in your own life, and then spread the love!!!

Erin, there will never be enough words to say how thankful we are for all of your help. You've stuck with us through the terrifying smilers and the collage madness, we owe EVERYTHING to you!

Hair- Stress {Frequent Frustrations}






As most of you know, I'm a hairdresser. I'm OBSESSED with everything hair. Ever since I was a baby, I've had blonde hair. I've never changed it. Ever. Blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde. I've always wanted to try something new. But I've never been brave enough to try any other color. Over the past couple of weeks I've been itching for a new look. And let me tell you, I'm indecisive. VERY! Everyone's opinion of my hair, I take to heart.

SO. I asked all of my Undone sisters and some of my FB friends and got a lot of different opinions. I originally wanted to just do another blonde weave. Then It changed to a color melt. Then it changed to coloring it all brown. And back to the weave again. Over and over and over. I'm telling you! I'm indecisive! I can't make decisions about my own hair! I've always wanted to go on some makeover show and have a professional just go to town on my hair. That way I wouldn't have to make a decision! lol! ANYWAY. After much deliberation and consulting with my lovely hair stylist...I decided....the color melt! And I loooove it. I was very hesitant because I've seen this look on other ladies and I think "that just looks like re-growth." But my hair stylist did a wonderful job and I'm so very pleased with the outcome. Next time I think I'm going to be brave and go ALL dark! AH! I feel like this is a good "ease me into being a brunette" look. My hubbs has been begging me to go dark for YEARS. So I feel like this look gives me the best of both worlds. What do you think?
