World's Hottest Chili Pepper Challenge! #carolinareaper

Have you ever heard of "The Carolina Reaper Challenge"? I haven't. I'm not even sure if there is one. Maybe we made it up? Who knows. I think my oldest son saw this challenge on YouTube and he really insisted on doing it. One thing I never mentioned about my boys is that they REALLY love spicy food. NOT ME. YUCK!

I never knew how determined my son was to do this challenge until my husband came home with a zip-lock full of Carolina Reapers fresh from his coworkers back yard. I was shocked! So, I had to share with you....
Did you know? Carolina Reapers are the THE WORLD'S HOTTEST CHILI PEPPER. It is a crossbreed between a ghost pepper and a red habanero and it hits 2.2 scoville heat units! YIKES!

*Viewer discretion is advised. Also, ignore the laundry. I'm working on it! Lol. 

Would you ever do this challenge? Who do you think handled themselves better?

I'm So Unorganized! Help!

Last week I had such a busy week! I worked one night shift and it threw me off all week.
One thing you might not know about me is that I'm horrible at organizing my days. I know what I'm doing that day, but I don't organize myself for the day.  This week I plan on writing out my schedule on an hourly basis. My days are getting full and I'm really happy about it. It's good to stay busy, but I need to remember to add sleep into my schedule. I was so tired last week and it doesn't help that I missed the gym too. Yuck, I feel so frumpy. Right now, I have some downtime, but I do have a lot to do. Next week will be even crazier. One thing I'm doing to change things up in my life is to wake up early and actually do something. I usually waste time by lounging around in the morning watching Peppa Pig with my daughter. I've been going to evening services at church on Sundays, but I want to make it a habit to go in the mornings. I joined a moms group that I will be going to once a week in the mornings and now I need to fit the gym into my routine in the mornings too.
 I get so much more done that way. But, I need to figure out how to do all of this without being so tired. I love coffee, but coffee doesn't always cut it. Can't forget baseball practices, baseball games, mixed martial arts classes, etc. etc. etc. BETTER GO! SO MUCH TO DO!!!!!

Any tips on how to organize my day? How do you do it?

A Toddler Life.

Hi there stranger! It's been a while! I've been very busy tending to my family. Especially my little girl. She is a handful. She is 20 months now. I can't believe it!
Currently, she loves to take her diaper off (in public and at home), rub her dirty hands of food into her hair after she's done eating, play with the water cooler (so annoying), and climb onto EVERYTHING!

She's attempting to talk. It's still mostly gibberish. Her favorite words to say are mom, dad, up, more, "bah" for bottle, and "mmmm" for good, and she grunts when we say "poop". So, I guess they're not ALL words, but you know what I mean. She'll occasionally repeat other words after we say them, but they are not in her daily vocabulary yet. I'm thinking about speech therapy, but not sure yet. I'm going to give it another month.
She's not potty trained. I should be working on it. Were not on the same page. She thinks her potty chair is a puzzle and she's always breaking it down and putting it back together again. When I left her diaper off, she peed on the floor in amazement....a couple of times.

We can't go the restaurants and movie theaters with her right now. She is SUPER CRAZY when we take her. We've already had to leave a few restaurants with to-go boxes and we would take turns waiting in the lobby of the movie theater so the kids could finish watching a movie.

Her favorite foods right now are cheetos puffs, chicken nuggets,french fries, apples, chocolate, and steak. We don't offer those everyday for health purposes, but she would eat these things all the time if we offered them. We're trying to eat healthy (all of us), but sometimes we use these as a back up to keep her calm, quiet, and collected. LOL.

LIFE IS NUTS WITH  A TODDLER. But, we love her to pieces and we LOVE the boys to pieces for being patient with everything especially their little sister. We wouldn't have it any other way!

That's pretty much our life right now.

Do you have a toddler? How's life?
