Thor: The Dark World New poster and Trailer release #ThorDarkWorld

I feel like the Avengers left me wanting more, in a good way. Some of my favorite go-to action movies include some of the Avengers themselves in their own roles, especially Thor.

November is my favorite movie month. Holidays mean blockbusters. Guess what folks, Thor: The Dark World comes out on November 8.

Also, I missed Jane.

{Toddler Fashion} Back to school with Jake

It’s that time of the year again! Before you send off your little guys to school, you may be doing some “back-to-school” shopping.
When it comes to picking out your toddler’s clothes, it may be hard to lend them all control.
Here’s an idea that’s sure to get them dressed in more than their pajamas. Just tell them it’s what Jake himself wears. Plus, how awesome will they look with their matching Jake and the Neverland Pirates backpack? They’ll certainly  have their friends shouting “Yo Ho Ho!”

A day in the life: 7 months

Someone must have hit fast forward. Another month has gone by! My baby is now 7 months old. Not much has changed in the past month in terms of routine, although he sleeps in a little longer. Now I only have to get up at 7 instead of 6!

He has made many attempts to crawl, but one his toosh gets off of the floor and he has to put his knee down, he either face plants or backs off. This is how he has managed to scoot all the way across the floor, meaning the child proofing actually has to begin. He has already managed to turn the Xbox on and off several times.

Another new thing he can do is pull up using your hands: meaning if you just hold his hands and don’t pull him up, he will pull up to his feet. It’s his favorite thing to do. He asks to do it a lot.

Because of his new found mobility he is getting into all kinds of mischief, putting shoes and cords in his mouth, grabbing at the dog and cat, and even trying to get in the dog crate. See, time to baby proof.

Since B has started daycare (since day 1) his nose has run like a river. He has a bad cough, and has gotten an ear infection, which we had to switch antibiotics because amoxicillin didn’t fix  it completely. Despite being sick he still is happy as can be and sleeps all night.

7 months

Bebe Stats:

Age: 7 months

Weight: 16.6 pounds

Length:  27 inches

Sleep: all night with the exception of our sick nights :(

Feeding: B has made the switch to formula. He gets 6 0z. when he wakes up, 3 bottles while he is at daycare, and then 2 more before bedtime. He gets 3 snacks throughout the day. We have started meats, and he seems to like them! Lately we have been having a difficult time getting him to eat dinner. B is also allowed to get a couple of ounces of juice with water each day to help with his drainage from the ear infection. No success getting him to drink it yet.

Favorites: His table top toy that is propped on only 2 legs. He also really likes Thomas the Tank Engine (I guess he takes after his Uncle D.) He  LOVES the water and going swimming, but only if Mom is holding him or his feet can touch the bottom. That’s my safety cautious boy!

Firsts: B can scoot on his bum and and will pull up when holding your hands. He went to his first cookout on July 4th. He had his first taste of juice on July 5th.

Medical: B has an ear infection in both ears. What started out as one, never ffully recovered with the ffirst antibiotic. Now he is on a stronger one or both ears. Luckily for me, when he doesn’t feel well, he just wants to sit on my lap and watch a movie.

Development: B is starting to crawl! He tries so hard, but sometimes he face plants. That’s OK, though, because Mom is right there to pick him up and kiss him and tell him it is OK. When you hold his hands he can pull himself up and stand! He even tries to walk. He loves going to daycare, where they do crafts (I’ll be sure to post them when I get them back) and he plays with the kids. B also holds his own bottle! We are working on using a sippy cup now.

Spend your Memorial Day weekend at the Alamo — Barbecue!

A while back my sister took us to this great place in downtown Richmond, Alamo BBQ. Right there, nestled in by 22nd street, in a place where I don’t really know, is the best darn barbecue place I have ever been.

“Alamo,” as we call it, has outdoor seating. You walk up, place your order and receive your buzzer. Then, go get your yummy food and enjoy the view. Ok, it’s not much of a view, but it is up hill and you can kind of see the city.

Now, about the food…

My name is Maggie. And I am a cornbread lover.

There’s something about this cornbread with honey-butter.

Maybe it’s just pretty?

I ordered the Pulled Pork with Slaw sandwich, which is about $5.

Simple, juicy and delicious!

I love Alamo, and I will be going back plenty this summer since I’ll be downtown for school. The food isn’t super expensive so it is college student friendly if you can get there. Maybe we will take a trip up there for Memorial Day!

What are your Memorial Day plans? I hope barbecue is involved!

The Ultimate Blog Party #UBP13

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Today, I’m joining in on the fun with the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. The UBP is a way to share you blog with other bloggers. Its basically a party where you can meet new people, but you can wear yoga pants all day and no one will know, or care, because they are probably in their yoga pants too.

Well, I’m Maggie (Margaret, Marg, Margie, Margarita, Margalicious, call me what you’d like). I’m a 20 year old single mother who is attempting to do this rearing a child thing all on my own while blogging here and going to school full-time at the oh so full of crime alerts, VCU (Grab your pepper spray!)

This is Linneyville.

Linneyville: (noun) a Parenting, lifestyle, and whatever else we can think of blog written by Maggie and her mom, Linda. You can find product reviews,the occasional recipe, parenting woes, triumphs, and cute pictures of the little bebe.

We have the worst room-mate ever, he goes by Little B, or B. He is up all night, eats all of the food in the house, and demands our attention. As of today, he is 4 months old. And I just got him to take a nap by playing Bohemian Rhapsody.

Mommy-ing for the win!

Thanks for poppin’ by. Feel free to leave a comment to say hello, or holla at me (@itsmargomg) or view adorbs pics of Little B on Instagram (@msellers2).

 

 

 

{Fashion Friday} Spring has Sprung

I don’t know about the other places in the world, but Virginia seems to have missed the memo about it being Spring. She is SO oblivious to the season that she thought it was appropriate to snow this morning, preceding a beautiful 60 degree and sunny day yesterday. Thanks Mother Nature.

How exactly does one dress for this kind of weather? That’s hard to say. I want to break out my short sleeve floral tops that I love so much, but the temperature outside says throw on a turtleneck.

Since I’m still nursing I still want to throw on something that A: hides spit up well and B: can have easy boob access. I feel like most of the time you can only pick one…since spit up isn’t always concealable.

Forever 21 tank / GAP blazer / Old Navy skinny fit jeans / TOMS crochet shoes / Dooney & Bourke clear plastic handbag / Oasis sequin scarve, $15

I love how colorful the top is! It makes my day. Even better, the tank top unbuttons so there isn’t a need to lift your shirt all the way up. It’s a great (inexpensive) piece that you can cover up with a blazer or sweater to keep it a little conservative, or warm. Whichever is your thing. Don’t forget to pair it with a cute flat and a great diaper bag! If it’s still a little too chilly, don’t be afraid to throw on a scarf, it might give your baby a little something to play with! Just kidding…But really.
