The Good News and The Bad News {Daily Diaries}

First item of business:

If you read my post last week then I'm sure you're dying to know what I finally decided to get Quinn for Easter. Oh the suspense! I'm sure it was as agonizing for you to wait as it was for me to choose! No? No one's really worried about it at all except for me? Well I'm going to tell you anyway.

Drum roll please.............................................

Ta Da! It's Lalaloopsy, Harmony B Sharp! Otherwise know as the singing Lalaloopsy doll.

So what made me finally choose? Well I had a little bit of help from Whit and Hai (sort of, at first they told me it was all cute, but then they confirmed with me when I was leaning towards Harmony), and I also consulted A LOT more reviews. If you remember, I wasn't sure about this doll because the reviews from Target said that the doll was not good for younger kids, but then I went to Amazon to get more opinions. In truth, reviews can kind of make things worse for me, because there are always people who have great experiences and people who have terrible ones, and I never know which ones to trust. Well the reviews on Amazon gave me a lot more to consider, and one in particular said that kids who love to sing and dance will like this toy. That sold me. Every day Quinn is dancing and twirling around. With that prompting I could imagine her dancing and singing with the doll, and I thought that would be more fun than any of the other toys I had in mind. Even if she isn't able to change the hair pieces easily right now, nothing is stopping her from dancing and singing along! So the singing Lalaloopsy it was! And the fact that this doll was a great deal made it even better. Especially since I found some Target giftcards hanging around and with my Target debit card and the clearance sale I only ended up paying $12.49 for this toy that is originally priced $45! She is still $35.99 on Amazon and $29.99 at Toys R Us, so I feel pret-A, pret-A, pret-A good (any Curb Your Enthusiasm fans out there?) about this choice.  

EXCEPT..... I just learned she probably won't be here in time for Easter! Wah wah wah...  All of that agonizing over which toy to get and it won't even be here! I should have spent less time thinking and more time ordering! I'm one day off! I did TRY to make sure I had my mind made up in time, but apparently I didn't factor in the fact that the day I make the order on doesn't count as one of my 3 to 5 business days. AND of course this delivery is taking the full 5, according to UPS tracking information. It's also kind of Darren's fault. He wouldn't let me order the doll when I first made up my mind, so I gave him the maximum allotted grace period before I bugged him again, which I guess was too long. Haha! Oh well, I do have some other stuff for Quinn, and I'm sure it won't matter to her if she gets the doll on Easter or not. But still, LAME! 

Parker's Hero Factory arrived today though, so at least some of my plans are in tact! 

Now, the second item of business: 

You may have noticed a small lack of posts around Undone lately... Of course, I can't get enough of my own jabbering, but I suppose you guys might prefer some variety. Have no fear! Undone has NOT been converted to "The Random Ramblings of Tiffany", Hailey and Whit have both just been REALLY busy the last little while. As you all know, Hailey sold her house and she's moving THIS WEEK! So, understandably, she's been a little occupied, and has decided to take some time off of writing Undone so she can be a little bit undone. 

And Whit, well, Whit is just a crazy person with so many things going on in her life and she needed a moment to get caught up. So you got stuck with just me for a couple of posts, but this is Undone, so it should be expect that sometimes we fall apart! Hopefully we should be back in full working order (or the Undone version) pretty soon, AND we've got some fun new ideas for the blog as well! In the meantime we hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend and Spring Break!

Decisions Decisions {Frequent Frustrations}

Ah! I have the worst time make decisions! I'm more than indecisive, I'm straight up neurotic when it comes to deciding. I completely overanalyze everything, and I drive myself crazy trying to make choices on the smallest stuff. I kind of obsess about making the wrong decision. Seriously, even with something as small as choosing which cereal to buy. I'm a bit of an anxious and obsessive person in general, so I can see where this comes from. I've been a "worrier" for as long as I can remember. I was always the cautious kid who didn't like to go fast on motocycles or ride crazy roller-coasters, and not to mention a total hypochondriac - which I could probably write a whole post about in itself. Truthfully, I could probably write endless posts about all of the things that stem from my anxious personality. It's kind of rough being a basket case. Especially this decision making problem. I really think I kind of need help, I get way too stressed out about the strangest things!

Right now I'm having a break down about what to get Quinn for her Easter basket. Candy and some little treats are easy to decide on, but I want to get each kid one fun toy that's a little bit bigger. Parker's is simple because he is always wanting something and I know he wants this Hero Factory toy. But I'm struggling with Quinn.  The last few times I've gotten Quinn gifts there was something that I had to get for her, but right now I'm drawing a blank. I was pretty set on getting her this Pocahontas doll from the Disney store.

Disney Animators Club Pocahontas Doll

BUT, we got her Merida for Christmas and she never plays with her! In fact, I think she kind of hates her. I don't know. It's weird. We got the same one for my niece's birthday a couple of weeks before Christmas and Quinn LOVED it, and even on Christmas Day she was talking to the doll when she was still in the box and trying to feed her, so I don't know what happened! She doesn't seem to have turned on her Rapunzel doll though, she actually has started playing with that doll more than she originally did when we got her last Easter, so again, I don't know. She likes the picture of Pocahontas when I show her.

I've also had one of these singing dolls from the Disney store on the list of things I've wanted to get her. I was thinking either Pocahontas or Rapunzel.

Disney Singing Rapunzel Doll

I feel like the singing makes them more fun, but would we be overloading on Rapunzel? I think she favors the Rapunzel doll over Pocahontas,  but she already has the toddler doll and the Barbie sized doll, so is it better to go with something different? Is it possible to have too many Rapunzels?

Which brings me to Lalaloopsy. She has really been loving this Lalaloopsy movie on Netflix, and I thought she might like a doll. Look how cute this little cheetah one is!

Lalaloopsy Littles Doll Whiskers Lion's Roar

But will she play with it? Or will end up like Merida? She has been liking her "babies" more and this doll is more of a baby than the others.

But then the lady at Toys R' Us said that her daughters like the mini Lalaloopsies better, so maybe those would be better for Quinn? And then again at the store Quinn was liking this singing one.

Lalaloopsy Silly Hair Star Doll - Harmony B Sharp

The drawback on this one is that the reviews online said it was hard for little kids to play with, so will she like it out of the box or is she too little for it? She was laughing and smiling at it a lot though, and it is on sale for half price too. So I feel like the singing Lalaloopsy is a good value, it is less money than the singing Disney doll even. But if it's too hard to play with then it doesn't matter if it's a good deal.

Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!! Brain overload!!! I seriously don't know what to do!!!! Pocahontas and the cheetah are super cute, but Rapunzel and the other Lalaloopsy are more interactive. I literally CAN'T make a decision. I took Quinn to the store today to see what kind of things she favors, but I think that only made things worse. I kind of want to scrap ALL of my ideas now. She liked EVERYTHING at the store! Or she would shove Lalaloopsy away and then 10 minutes later run back to the isle and hug her! Quinn, just tell me what your favorite toy is please? Bleck, why can't I just pick something and go with it? My brain won't let me be normal. I go through this all the time, which is the frustrating thing. How do I reign in my indecisiveness? Do any of you other ladies have the problem? I know it probably seems dumb to others, but I can't help but be a stress case, that's my life! I don't do well with too many options, on ANYTHING! Of course this just a toy, and if she doesn't play with it it's not the end of the world, but it's disappointing when I end up buying things that my kids don't care about. Tell me what to do people! What are your toddlers in to and what are you giving your kids for Easter? I need to know!

Oh, and thanks for enduring my craziness :)  Comments and suggestions are much appreciated!!!

A mom of Action not of Routine {Daily Diaries}

As I was looking through my past pins I came across this awesome quote that I saved a while back. I am so glad I was looking through pinterest at the time, because I really needed to see/read this. Lately I have been feeling a little blah. You know what I mean nothing is particularly wrong but nothing is particularly right either and you just feel blah. Like you are a zombie just trying to get through the day and then when night comes, the kids are in bed and you think to yourself what did I do today and you can't really think of anything worth remembering that you did. Yeah that is how I have been feeling. Maybe it is because this darn winter has felt so long and I am really getting cabin fever, maybe it is my health (I have been feeling sick pretty much since Holden was born, something is off but I'm not sure what), maybe I just don't have the right attitude and maybe I am not taking enough action.

When I read the quote through again I realized I need to keep my priorities straight. People are always saying it doesn't matter how messy your house it you just need to create memories with your children, and even though I agreed with this statement I just never really put it into practice. Now I am not saying I am just going to let my house go, I am way too much of a clean freak/OCD to do that but I need to really work on and focus on what is the most important and that is my to beautiful boys. so yes if it did have to come down to choosing between my boys and a clean house it is a no brainer. My boys really are my world.

I catch myself reading blogs and working on my own blogs instead of playing with Maddux, I find myself shushing my boys when I am trying to watch something, I find myself ignoring them when I am trying to get the house clean or the laundry done or doing a craft. What the heck? I sound like the worst mother in the world. I mean I don't do this all the time, of course, and I don't ignore them 24/7, and I do play with them and take care of all their needs, but I need to really be there in their lives.

They are growing up so fast and I don't want to miss a thing. Holden is 7 months today and Maddux is 3 next month. I can't believe how fast the time is going. They are not little very long and I want to embrace this time I have with them. I am so lucky to be a stay at home mom and I feel like I have been taking advantage of this blessing. No more. I am grateful to be home with them and I am going to stay showing them that.

I want to create memories every single day even if we are home all day, I want to play, I want to teach and I want to be the mom that those sweet little guys deserve. I want to be a better mom, and mom of action not of routine. I love my boys more than anything in this whole world, I would do anything for them, and that means being there for them ALWAYS.

'Transform' That Attitude! {Daily Diaries}

This past week I have been feeling very overwhelmed, outdone, ugly, frustrated, tired, sick (literally), unheard, impatient, under-dressed, unappreciated, and UNDONE. WHY do I have to have weeks like this?! I get so upset with myself when I start thinking negatively. It just seems so easy at the time to let the day to day get to me. And it's not like I don't try to think good thoughts....I do. I do try. And for the most works. But this week has dealt me a rough and tough card. All of those emotions/feeling that I mentioned at the beginning of this post are what I've been experiencing this week. I just want to cry. I think I just have a lot on my plate right now. (Selling our home, moving, finding a place to move, family drama, dealing with a sick toddler, etc.)

I was skimming through Pinterest the other day when Gracie was taking a nap and I found this little diddy that just made my day. I will be the first one to admit that I'm not much for huge action movies, but when Transformers first came out I was OBSESSED! I think it might be partially that Optimus Prime has such a dreamy voice. “Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.”- Optimus Prime. I can just hear him now. What a dream boat. *sigh* ANYways. Here is that little diddy I promised. I hope you get a little chuckle out of it.

I know that I have hard days/weeks so that I can appreciate the good days/weeks. It all makes sense in my mind after I take a step back and look at my life from a larger point of view. Does it matter that Grace hucks my cute throw pillows on the ground right after I pick them up? No. Is it going to kill me if Jared doesn't put his gosh darn cereal bowl in the dish washer? No. Am I really dying of a cold? No. Is negative family drama going to consume my positive thoughts? NO! Here's to knowing what the bad days feel like so I can bask in the glorious days which are GOOD!

OPTIMIST PRIME!!!! Transform that attitude and ROLL OUT!

Apple Cider Vinegar Acne Treatment {Practicing Pinterest}

So sometimes I break out. Not ever really bad at my current age, but I often have one or two straggly pimples hanging around, and it's a lot worse when it's that time of the month. And now I have to admit that I don't always take care of my skin the way I should. I have a tendency to leave my makeup on at night, a lot, and I don't always wash my face before I put new make up on the next day. I'm lazy, ok! Not saying that I never wash my face, I just don't do it as much as I should, so I'm probably lucky that I don't get more break outs. I should also admit that I can't just leave it alone when I have a pimple, I'm terrible about popping and picking. Bleck, disgusting right? So now you know all my dirty secrets...

I am at least really vigilant about applying acne medicine when I do have a break out though. I might even go a little overboard on that front. I go through a tube of acne cream pretty fast, and I'm always trying new ones. Maybe not the best plan, but meh, that's me. So when I ended up with one of the worst break outs I've had in a while and no acne creams on hand I decided to try something I saw on Pinterest. Apple cider vinegar toner.

I've seen a few things on Pinterest about this method and I've been wanting to try it for awhile, but again, I'm lazy, so it took an actual break out to cause action. Annnnnnd, I'll admit, I have mostly continued about my lazy ways of not always washing my face before bed.... but after less than a week I've seen some good results with this toner!

The original pin gives different "ratios" of ACV to water, but I was just winging it at first and tried to recreate the concoction from memory, so I used pure ACV(and not organic like the pin calls for either), with just as squirt of lemon juice. Even though I haven't seen any adverse effects from the non-diluted solution, I think I will water it down since I don't want any to appear.

I HAVE seen some positive effects though! I've been applying this at least once a day (sometimes twice) with a cotton pad before my moisturizer and makeup (sometimes I even washed my face beforehand like I'm supposed to), and my pimples are pretty much gone after less than a week! Now it may be that my lady time has passed and so I'm just clearing up naturally, but I really do feel like the ACV helped reduce the redness and quickly healed some of the pimples that I had picked at.

I tried to take a before picture, but I'm not very skilled at taking close up photos of myself with my DSLR camera and my phone just couldn't get enough detail to show how bad my break out really was. So sorry I can't give you visuals of the results, but just know that I am pleased with them.

I've never had "severe" acne, and I already mentioned that my skin has improved as I've become an adult, but it's enough for me to not want to leave the house without foundation or concealer. But I plan to continue with the ACV toner and maybe by summer I can be wearing less makeup on my face! Also maybe I'll try to be a little bit better about removing my makeup at night ;) There is one downside to ACV though, and that's the smell. This stuff seriously STINKS! I'm hoping that using the diluted version will help in that aspect too. We'll see. I'll definitely be updating you all about the long term results, and I'd love to hear how it works for others as well!

Celebrate The Success of Others

If you don't already know I love the Utah lifestyle show called Studio 5. It is awesome not only do they show a lot of crafts, exercise tips, recipes, DIY and gardening tips they also give really good relationship advice and just awesome ways to better yourself. Each month they have a theme. Last month was all about living without pretending. You can read more about that HERE. This month is all about Celebrating the success of others. This month on Studio 5 our goal is to clap, cheer, and acknowledge the things that others do well - both in our hearts and in our actions. Pretty awesome right. I LOVE this. It reminds me to not compare, to be a good friend, to support others and to genuinely be happy for their successes in life whether it be in their career, in their hobby, in their dream, in motherhood or just in life in general, To be happy for them in our hearts and to tell them.

 As women, it is so easy to get caught up in the comparison game, yes, even with your friends. I am guilty of this, I think we all are in some points of our lives. It is hard to be in limbo sometimes I get down and think I wish I had a house like her, I wish I was as talented as her, I wish I was as beautiful as her, I wish I was making as much money as her, I wish my blog was as successful as her, I wish I had as many friends as her, I wish I had all that money to spend on cute clothes like her, and so on. But, I have come to the conclusion that just isn't the way to live. It just hurts me. And it hurts relationships. Be happy for your friends, and they will be happy for your successes in life. I love when my friends cheer for me and are there for me. For example, last week I was able to be on Studio 5 (which is a huge dream of mine and I think a huge success), and my adorable Undone sister Hailey and Tiff came to support me. They were there for me and they cheered for me and it felt amazing. I loved it and I want my friends to feel that love and happiness from me when they are successful and happy. It makes me happy when the people I love are happy, so why not show it and shout it from the roof tops!

Hailey I want to Celebrate your success as an amazing mother, friend and talented hairstylist. You are such an example to me and I am always to proud of everything you do. You make me want to be a better member of the church, a better example and a better friend. I am so grateful to have you in my life.

Tiff I want to celebrate your success as being a beautiful mother and friend. You are one of the most selfless people I know. You are so smart and could be anything you want to be, but you choose to be home with your cute kids. You are so giving and kind, you are always helping someone out I know you have helped me about a million times just the short time we have been friends and I am so happy and grateful for our friendship.

I can't wait to celebrate more of their successes as they come! 

There are more I want to celebrate throughout this month. To follow along check out my instagram or follow the hashtag #celebrateothers

I love what Julie Hanks of Wasatch Family Therapy talked about on Studio 5 today regarding this subject and how to put a stop to comparing with others and start celebrating with others. Here is her article I just had to share:

Why do women compete with one another? Here are a few common reasons that competitive feeling can settle in:
· We compete to cover up our insecurities and self-doubt.
· We compete to try and prove our worth, that we're good enough and lovable.
· We compete because we're afraid that there is a limited supply of love and success.
· We compete because we've grown up competitive culture where there is only one winner.

They key is to end the competition. Here's four ways to do it:

1) Look inside instead of side-to-side for self-worth.
It is human nature to look to others to measure how well we are doing in a certain area, and then judge ourselves, and others, based on how we measure up. We then equate our performance as a measurement of our self-worth.
The areas where we are most competitive with other women are the areas where we feel most insecure about ourselves. Focusing on healing our own insecurities is more fruitful than looking at what others are accomplishing. Once you embrace who you are and your unique callings in life, you can focus on being the best you instead of being better than.

2) Quit comparing.
Whether you realize it or not, someone else's accomplishments, appearance, children's behavior, or the car they drive have absolutely nothing to do with you and your value as a person. Each woman has a unique path, unique talents, and unique challenges. If someone else's child skipped a grade because of his amazing reading skills that doesn't mean that you're a bad mom. If a neighbor loses 20 lbs. in a few months that doesn't mean that you have to. When we compare someone else's successes with our own situation we make it about us, which limits our ability to celebrate with them.
I talked with a dear friend last week about an amazing professional opportunity that had come her way. As we talked and I congratulated her, I noticed a tinge of jealousy and felt my heart sink just a bit. I became aware that I was making her opportunity mean something about me. I'm glad I caught myself. I told her, "I'm so excited for you! I've got to admit I'm a little jealous - I'd love to be in your shoes right now. I am so thrilled for you. Way to go!" By acknowledging that I was comparing, I was able to stop it and fully celebrate her success.

3) Practice an abundance mindset.
Competition is based on the belief that there is not enough success to go around. It feeds an either/or mentality—there's a winner and a loser, I'm good or your good. One way to overcome competition is by practicing an abundance mindset. There is enough success, love, and joy in the world for everyone.
People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality, the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to…rather than detracts from…our lives."
~ Stephen R. Covey

4) Appreciate all things beautiful.
I recently read an inspiring article on called Life Isn't a Beauty Contest: How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Women written by O Magazine Beauty Editor Valerie Monroe. Now in her 50's, she shares how she's been able to stop comparing herself to other women by claiming her role as "Appreciator of All Things Beautiful." Instead of succumbing to the critical voice in her head, she readily acknowledges the beauty in others by freely complimenting their beauty.

So Studio 5, and us here at Undone want to hear from you. Whose success could you celebrate? Maybe it's the friend whose children always get straight A's. The sister who gets to go on the trip of a lifetime. Or the college roommate who struck gold with her brilliant idea. Whoever it is, give them a shout-out on Instagram.

1. Write down their name.
2. Snap a photo
3. Post to the Instagram hashtag #celebrateothers

We know that not everybody uses Instagram - and that's okay. Social media is just ONE way to get involved with this month's theme, but there are LOTS of personal ways.

· Speak glowingly about them in conversation with others.
· Recommend their business to a friend.
· Call them up with no other purpose than to let them bask in their good news.
· Cheer them on in your thoughts.
· Drop them a note in the mail.

So how about it?! Come along with us and celebrate your friends and family and loved one's successes!!!! Lets spread the love, joy and feel goods.

11:05 am on a Thursday {Roll Call}

Last thursday Whitney was on a local tv show here in Utah called Studio 5! Which is a HUGE accomplishment! We are so proud of her and how far she has taken her blog! It's awesome! Tiff and I wanted to support her, so we went to the KSL broadcast house and saw her on tv live! It was so much fun! On our way down to see Whit, Tiff and I were discussing how early we had to get up and get ready. Seriously! It was the earliest that I had been ready in a LONG time. So take note! We were all ready by at least 9-10am this morning! Makeup and everything! This never happens. After the show, Tiff and I headed to City Creek and hit up some of our favorite joints. (Whit had to run home to her sweet baby:) Sephora and Forever 21. Makeup and SUNglasses for us! Happy Thursday!

Mucky Muck {Frequent Frustrations}

Spring is coming! The weather is warming up and the snow is melting, and it's making me want to be in the mountains everyday before it's gone! I'm loving the slightly warmer weather and sunshine, but don't think I'm getting to enjoy it to it's full extent... because I live in a marshland!!!

As I mentioned earlier, the snow is melting, and consequently it has turned my backyard into a swamp! It's totally icky! I was thinking about taking Quinn out to play on the swing set when it was beautiful sunshiney jacket weather, but then I looked out the window and saw this...

This picture really doesn't show the true nastiness even. This whole AREA is completely mushy, as well as a good portion of the area just outsid of the photo on the left. It's a big, muddy, mucky, dog poopy mess! That's right, I don't just have complete swamp on my hands, I also have a whole winter's worth of dog poop out there!

It is actually less swampy near the swing set, but my very annoying dog has decided that location is the best for pooping, so the swingset was still of limits. So sad. Especially because this truly is a frequent frustration. Darren is not very prompt about picking up poo (I feel like that could be it's own post!), and unfortunately, this is not the first time we've been swampified.

Even though this marsh just settled in due the warming temperatures, our yard becomes a swamp quite often in the spring and summer. Maybe not always as bad as this, but the area of that giant puddle is usually "damp" at all times. The problem is that the two houses behind us sit on higher ground, so we're not just getting our own snowmelt, or rain and sprinkler run off. This situation is further compounded by the fact that one set of neighbors tend to let the sprinklers run a little too long, or forget to turn off the hose far too often. It's very annoying when the dog or Quinn decide they want to run through the gross area. Yeah... I have some choice words for those particular neighbors...

The previous owners of our home had mentioned how much of a make-over they gave the backyard, so I'm guessing that somewhere in the course of that work our yard found it's self lower than the others, especially because  it is visible at the fence line that the property behind us is two inches higher. It's weird. I LOVE the landscaping we have but I don't care for the yucky pond we sometimes get, and I REALLY don't care for the muddy dog! What to do, what to do? Just wait for the sun to come out and dry up the swamp before we go out back I guess. No fun!

Healthy Recipes {Practicing Pinterest}

As always, I've been searching for healthy recipes for my family and I. I found this one on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to try it! It has two main ingredients, both of which I LOVE! Avocado's and Eggs! All you do is boil and peel 4 eggs, peel and dice an avocado, put all of that into a bowl and mesh. (Just a bit) Add seasoning to taste. Serve on multigrain bread with lettuce and enjoy! It's filling and SO tasty!!!

 Check out the full recipe here 

I added a bit of salt and pepper and a dash or two of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning. AND I used romaine lettuce. I love that lettuce. Jared and I loved the avocado and egg sandwiches! Grace is a really good eater and will eat mostly anything you put in front of her, but as far as the texture of boiled eggs go, she wasn't a fan. So she opted out. Anyways! I hope you enjoy this recipe from my dear old Pinterest page! Please send any healthy and EASY recipes my way!
