Good morning friends!  I can't believe it is Thursday already.  I remember how tired I was on Monday morning and now the week is almost over.  Anyways...have you guys heard of this app called Viggle?  I have been hearing a lot about it from watching the Ellen Show and I finally downloaded the app to check it out!  It is fabulous I must say!

 So basically if you watch t.v (who doesn't?) you can earn points and trade them in for gift cards or products. Crazy huh?  You are getting rewarded for watching t.v.  I think this is something that I don't want to introduce to my little one when he is older.  Society doesn't need another reason to watch t.v however...this one has me hooked!  Here is how it works...

 Right now I have almost 5,000 points and I have had it for about a week.  I seriously scan the t.v when it is on for every show and sometimes I scan and turn off the t.v or leave the room.  Cheating?!?  Oh well!  I can't wait to get my first prize!

Another fun and exciting thing happened yesterday.  I have been reading a lot of blogs and forums online from other women who have had children recently and the one thing that always stuck out to me was that a lot of women have found new moms in the area to get together with for their own sanity!  Two of my friends (both named Ashley, which is nuts!)  have had children recently.  They are each a week apart.  The other two Ashley's didn't know each other and I thought it would be a fun idea to get both of them over to meet and to have adult/baby time altogether.  It was absolutely amazing!  Here is a pic of all three of our boys together.  My little one is on the left in orange, the oldest of the three is in the middle, and the youngest of the three is on the right!
It was really nice to have two other women to discuss birthing stories, breastfeeding stories, funny moments, family moments, etc. with.  We got to discuss all the things we know our husband's don't really care that much about.  I had the girls over to my house and we were together for about three hours just chatting, feeding the boys, laughing, and having a ball.  I'm so thankful we did that and we decided it was something we were going to do more often.  I think it would be great to get together monthly or even biweekly.  The boys are so close in age that we can discuss milestones, troubles, behavior, and all that "stuff" with each other and share advice.  Here is another pic. from the playdate.
Anyone else get together with other new moms or with families with kids their same age?  Do you find it therapeutic?  It was such a weight lifted off my shoulder yesterday and I am thankful for moments like those.

For's off to watch Live With Kelly & Michael and it's time to earn some more points on Viggle!
