- SHOP30 will get you 30% off, expires 11/14
- Spending $50 = free shipping but if you spend less use the code below
- MVCFSFREE = free no minimum shipping and CAN be used with the 30% off code, expires 11/15
- Kohl's Cash Tip: Every $50 you spend earns you $10 Kohl's cash. These are like gift cards you get to come back and use in the store or online. Pay attention to the subtotal AFTER you apply all your discounts. Even if your subtotal is $99.99, you will only get $10 Kohl's Cash back instead of the $20 you would have if you had spent one more cent. Your subtotal must be 50+. 100+, 150+, etc to earn the Kohl's Cash. This can be tricky with all the promo discounts, shipping, and tax so pay attention to the subtotal only. This round of Kohl's cash ends 11/12.

For those of you who do or want to do the Kohl's thing NOW is the time to shop. Several people have asked me how I save so much money. Below is what you need to know. I have no idea why people buy stuff without these promos. The only catch is that you have to have a Kohl's card. Opening your Kohl's card is a big step and should not be wasted. You can usually get an additional 15% on top of all your other promos when you open an account so plan your first time accordingly. Also, pay it off when you get the bill. Don't go into debt. Paying finance charges defeats the purpose of getting the good deals. I put the reciept on my desk so I can remember to go online and pay it the next day.

So this not working thing is pretty great. I find myself with time to do useless stuff. (Obviously, since this is my second blog without a 6 month span.) Most of this free time is interrupted by a little munchkin that needs me to sit down and take care of him. This results in a bit too much social media, Internet surfing, and Hulu+.
Alas, the treasures I have found!
1. The band Fun. was on SNL last Saturday and I think I love them. The quality of a person's live voice is really what does it for me.

In order of how much I like them: New Girl, Modern Family and The Mindy Project. The jury is still out and my judgement might be impaired because of how little I'm using my brain lately but I'm open to your show suggestions.
Remember, this post is just about what I'm doing when I'm sitting on my butt. I am engaged in actual projects around the house too. Officially, I don't hit my six weeks mark until next Thursday so the 'excuse for being lazy' window is coming to an end. Boo, but I guess its time. I mean look how freaking skinny I was seven years ago! I'd just like to say this is the healthist I've ever been and I was 165 pounds! I NEVER would have dared to tell anyone that 10 years ago. Young girls need to know that the same number on the scale looks different on everyone and doesn't determine how cute or thin you are. IF ONLY I HAD FIGURED THIS OUT SOONER!!!!!

Hello, from Logan Robert Ireland!
Stats: See Hospital card above.
Name Origin: Back in 7th grade at Bonneville Jr. High my friend Jane was talking about her funny little brother Logan. In that moment, I fell in love with the name and decided I would give it to my own son someday. His middle name has two meanings. First, Robert is the name of Ben's dad. Second, about 2 years ago one of my best friends lost her brother, leaving her the only sibling left to her parents. In our tear filled conversations she mentioned how hard it was for her to be alone and she asked me to not make my kids ever have to go through that. It is because of her and her brother Robert that I decided to have a third child. We are happy to have a middle name that means so much.
Labor & Delivery: Labor started very early in the morning. We headed in and by the time I was all hooked and drugged up it was about 11:30 a.m. At that point I pretty much just took a nap. Everything went very well and after about three hours my doctor was there to deliver the baby. At 2:05 pm I was holding my new baby boy!
New Things I Know: The first kid is terrifying. You're too worried about breaking it to enjoy it. The second is a little better but you're still trying to use all the same techniques from the first kid until you realize no two kids are the same and this is a whole new ball game. The third kid is AWESOME. Ben and I are both in such a good place and we're seasoned pros. Cute thing Ben said, "I was worried about how a third kid would fit in with our little group but now that he's here I just feel more complete." He's going to hate that I put that here but it just so true I had to share.
Enjoy the pics!
|Last few moments as one unit. Hospital gowns are so flattering.|
|Only a few minutes old and already very alert and chilled out.|
|Ben was/is amazing. I seriously have the best husband in the world. Nothing is cuter than a man being so excited about his new child.|
|Amy & Lucas think he is "awesome." Their words.|
|Lucas found the reverse on the camera. This has nothing to do with Logan but it was funny to find these pics in the middle of all the others.|
|Grandma and Grandpa Ireland took care of Amy and Lucas while we were at the hospital. Family support is the best!|
|First night as mom and son. I should have been sleeping but I can just sit, stare, and cuddle with him for hours.|
|Look at all that hair! I have NEVER had a kid with hair before. No Stevens has really ever been able to produce a kid with hair for that matter. This is seriously more hair than Amy and Lucas had at the age of two.|
|Finally home and chillin' with Dad. Fits in perfectly already.|
