Do you have a raisin in your nose?

Saturday started out as a normal morning. Murray woke up early as usual and wanted to eat first thing. She always wants to eat as soon as she gets up, but I take her to the kitchen to get something and she refuses to eat it. Go figure. Anyways, we go into the kitchen and my mom came in their with us. She was going to the grocery store and was going to take Murray with her. As they left to go to the store, I decided to go back to bed for a little bit. Yay! Extra sleep! I don't know how long I was asleep, but suddenly I heard my mom and Murray bust through my front door. "Murray has a raisin in her nose" my mom said as she hurried to Murray's bedroom. I was really confused at this point. How did she have a raisin in her nose? Did we have raisins? Where am I???? Ok, so I jumped out of bed and ran into Murray's room. My mom was trying to suction Murray's nose but it was not working. She asked me if I had a flashlight and I went to look for one. Meanwhile, Mom took Murray into the bathroom and was trying to hold her down to suction it. I ran back with the flashlight so we could try and see where the raisin was. Murray was not happy about any of this. Seriously, if you had heard her screaming you would have thought we were beating her or something. So we looked with the flashlight and we couldn't see anything. I asked mom is she was sure that Murray put one up and there. She said "Brittany, it was a yogurt raisin! Melted yogurt was dripping from her nose and she was screaming grabbing it!" Ok, so now what? We couldn't see it, we couldn't suction it. I called the doctor to see what they wanted me to do. It took the answering service FOREVER to answer. Finally they put me through and the answering service told me a nurse would call me back. Mind you, the raisin was in the nose at 10, and it was about 10:30 ish. Mom called our friend who is a respiratory therapist to see if she had any suggestions. She called an ENT doctor friend of hers and we were going to meet him at 12. The nurse called me back after that, but I told them we were taking care of it. We hurried and got dressed because it takes 30 minutes to get to the place we were meeting the doctor. Murray was so fussy and tired and I know it was hurting her. We kept asking her if she put a raisin in her nose and she would say NOOOO. As we were driving we noticed the the raisin slowly kept coming down. We could see it now, but the doctor told us not to do anything that could push it further in her nose. We finally get to the office (and my mom works in the same building, just a different office) and my mom was going to go inside and get her long tweezers because it was literally at the end of her nose. My mom starts to get out of the car and Murray started screaming!!! And guess what? Out pops the raisin! We called the doctor before he got there so he didn't make a useless trip. Thank goodness it came out! I'm glad it didn't get stuck up there...Have your kids ever stuck something up their nose before???

Thursday 5!

Happy Thursday! Time for the Thursday 5 again! Don't forget to link up over at Flipflops and Combat Boots!


I am blessed because my daughter is the most amazing person ever. She is so funny and sweet! Don't get me wrong, she has a terrible temper, but she's super sweet for the most part!

Murray's birthday party is going to be INCREDIBLE! I am so excited for it! I can't wait to post some pictures and show you guys all the stuff!

I feel productive with school right now. I am ahead in all my classwork and it feels great to not have to worry about it tomorrow on my free day with Murray!

I am elated that I get to see at least 2 of my friends from Speech on Thursday nights. We have classes close to each other, so we stop and say hey to each other! It's a good thing because I miss them!

I am happy that Grey's Anatomy is new tonight! YES!

The Princess and the Frog

When The Princess and the Frog first came out, Murray was too little to be interested in it. I honestly forgot about it for a while. Then, right before Christmas, my friend Danielle told me there was a talking alligator in it. I knew right then I had to get it for my alligator obsessed girl! She seriously has this crazy obsession for alligators. She has a stuffed one, two plastic ones, and alligator jammies. So, using my SWAGBUCKS, I ordered the movie from I was excited to see it myself, so a few days after Christmas we watched it. The sweet girl didn't move a single time during the movie. It was a cute movie! It was cool seeing "old-timey" New Orleans. So, fast forward to present day. My child is now obsessed with this movie. She points to the tv and just says "alligator, alligator" over and over. Since Sunday, I think we have watched it about 6 times (not sit down and watch but it has to be on.) I think I have created a least she is cute:).

Back on the train!

Finally, I am back on this bloggy train! I know you guys missed me. We've had a few holidays since I last blogged. So, time to catch up.

First, Thanksgiving. Murray looked insanely cute on Thanksgiving! She was all decked out in her gymbo (what else, right?) For some reason I can't find a picture of her on my camera... I'll have to see if I can find some on my grandparent's camera later. It was somewhat of a warm day, so I had to take off her super cute fur vest so she wouldn't sweat to death. Megan and I tried to make a cake for Thanksgiving and it turned out to be a hot mess. Don't even ask for a picture of that haha! We made homemade marshmallow fondant. Who knew it would be that messy? It was fun, but boy it was terrible. Haha!

Wait did I miss Halloween too? Ok I just checked and I didn't post too many pictures! Well, time for that :). Murray was the cutest little 1950s girl for Halloween. I was Snooki ;). This is my hilarious, awesome, great speech class from last semester. They were so fun and we decided to have a Halloween party one night during class. You can tell that we all have a very fun personality :). Everyone wasn't in this picture. There was also an Edward Cullen and a computer nerd!
 Megan and I took Murray and Landon to a fall festival the night before Halloween. They are so cute together. Murray is such a flirt! Look at them golding hands! Neither one of them would look at the camera at the same time, so this is the best picture I could get. Aside from ones where she covered her eyes and then where she covered her ears. The little punk!
Kevin, Murray's godfather, got married the day before Halloween too. I only got a few pictures of it though. 
 Look at those handsome men! They all looked great! This was them hanging out before the wedding started. 

Me and my friend Jamin. We were really good friends in junior high, then he left. But, at the wedding he was there and we got to hang out. Fun times!

Me and my beautiful cousin Megan later that night when we took the kiddo's out. Love her!

Anyways, I have more to come about Christmas break later. That includes seeing my amazing friend Danielle and her wonderful family. So until then!
