Finding Joy. (A guest post)

Hello to all the great fans of My Three Bittles!  I'm Holly from not done growing.     Before I get to far, I would like to thank Amber for giving me the chance to take over her blog for a post!  I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to be part of this  community.  From the bottom of my heart - thank you, thank you, and thank you! not done growing is my little place in the world where I can share all the things that give me joy and happiness.

Swappity swap.

Ignore the terrible title of this post. I couldn't think of anything better.
My brain is not in the greatest place right now so just have some patience with me.

Surveys, alcohol and married life. (A guest post)

Happy Tuesday everyone.
Today I have my in-post sponsor hogging my blog.
He needs your help! (And you get entered to win one of FOUR $50 Amazon gift cards).
Are you married?
Do you drink? (socially, daily, weekends, home alone, etc etc etc)
Does your spouse?

Lions and tigers and picnics, OH MY!



Weekend recap:


Thursday morning David and I took Maddie and Owen to a Safari Zoo hosted here on post as part of a celebration for military child month.

52 weeks of kindness. Week 16.

I can not believe we are already to week 16!

This week was pretty much the same,
I smiled and said hello to everyone.
I let people in during traffic.
I helped some lady at the commissary reach something she couldn't get to.

15 reasons why I'm not a good blogger

Are you a "bad blogger"?! I'm pretty sure I am.
Here's my 15 reasons why I think I'm not a good blogger.
Can you relate?

It's Gnarly, guys.



Have you guys ever heard of the shop, The Gnarly Whale?
I've seen them around and have been drooling over some of their products and wanting to try out like ALL of them. I love Ashley, she's been a blog friend of mine for what seems like ever now and I'm super happy to get to share her and The Gnarly Whale with you today!
I absolutely love that they're all vegan and eco-friendly! That right there is honestly what got my attention first!.
That paired with their cute design, amazing smells and their "about me" is just a win, win, win!

A ramble about fashion and body image.

*warning: my thighs suck*


The other day I was just in a mood.
I blame that God awful monthly lady friend. Throw in the fact that David was gone, the kids were going crazy (almost bedtime hyperness), Owen had some teething poos going on and the dogs had just heard a motorcycle drive by so they were frantic.

So what's a girl to do?!

The Great UGLee Pen- an Ergonomic Pen




I'm a pen snob.
Like seriously, I get upset when my favorite ink pens go missing so as silly as it sounds, I totally jumped at the chance to review the UGLee Pen. I'd seen a few reivews of them in blogland and even entered to win some. You might think I'm silly for wanting to win free pens, but you'd be the silly one for not.

52 weeks. Week 15.

Truth be told, I've got nothing.

I mean, I let cars in and out when I didn't have to. I smiled at people and said "hello"
But honestly nothing major.
It's been a very long week.
I donated ad space to The Brown Bag Project. (I wish it could've been more and later on it WILL be)

April 11, 2013

Can we talk for a sec?

You guys. It's seriously time to stop.Just stop.
Two different sites (one good, one bad-both "anonymous") have popped up and after some browsing, I realized they kind of began because of all of the negativity in blogland.
You people do realize that it's a BLOG right? It's the internet and you still have real lives outside of it right?! Don't get me wrong, my blog is like a child to me. I love it, I do but it's more of a hobby than anything. I've met some AMAZING people through blogging and I'm beyond grateful that I know them but my life does NOT revolve around a blog.

IRS/identity theft part 3

Read part 1 here.
Read part 2 here.


Our lawyer informed us that we could file a tax amendment to try to file "married filing separately" so we looked into that only to realize we'd get less than 1/2 of our original return back.
At first we decided that we would NOT take that route, but then the Harley payment messed up and things came up.... so here we are now awaiting the reply to the amendment we submitted. We put it in last week and it takes 6-8 weeks to process. I'm so upset by this but overall we really need to pay off the first bike payment loan and doing this will allow (if it goes through) us to do that much and be better off (by a tiny bit) monthly, so overall we both feel it's the right choice. A very crappy choice, but the right choice.

What's in my bag?

I've been meaning to do one of these for the LONGEST time so when Carly announced that she was about to host a link up with Lauren, I was super excited! (And thankful that she let me know).
So I finally sat down, took some pictures and called it a day!

1. Forever21 bag with girlie products. 2. Sunglasses from Target. 3. E.C. Planner and grocery list on top from last grocery shopping trip. 4. Keys. 5. Wallet that Fin bought me for Christmas. 6. EOS chapstick and hairclip. 7. Random receipt. 8. Sephora bag full of random essentials.

Sephora bag's randomness. (Maddie rubber band, hair clip, eye drops, triple antibiotic cream, deodorant, mirror, hand sanitizer, band-aids, tweezers. This is my mini mom bag!

(These last two pictures are from when I bought the purse a while back-T.J. Maxx)

Not pictured in my bag because it goes in in the morning before we go on our little adventures:
Little green pouches (two: one for Maddie, one for Owen)
A granola bar for me, usually more receipts, usually trash such as starbucks straw wrappers or cookie wrappers.

That time I tried to be a fashion blogger

I was recently given the opportunity to work with eShakti. If you haven't heard of it, you simply must be living under a rock.
Or really just not spend as much time blog browsing as I do.
Either way, I suggest you head over and check them out, get aquainted and then come back and finish reading.

This group of pictures turned out blurry. But I paired it with a yellow sweater (thrifted), gray tights(c/o No Nonsense) and brownish boots (from my friend Sarah). I loved this outfit and it was chillier this day.



So I enlisted the help of my husband for less blurry pictures

I had David stand there so I could focus the camera. I laughed so hard when going through these to discover him looking like this.

I call this my model look. (When in reality the sun was in my face and I was trying to work the clicker thing)

Eggs.

After Easter I imagine you have quite a few eggs leftover.
I know we do.
So I thought I'd share a little tip with you.

When making Deviled Eggs, put the mix into a ziploc baggie and snip the tip off of a corner.
It certainly makes filling all those eggs a lot easier and neater.

Easy tip for making deviled eggs

How do you make your deviled eggs?
I do the basic, mayo, mustard, paprika on top.
