IDK (i don't know for the non-texters)

:: Brynns hair will NOT hold a curl for anything. It makes me sad. My efforts of the last two Sundays have been in vain.

:: If you hear your 3 year-old yelling at the top of her lungs "it's getting me daddy!" and she's in the bathroom RUN don't walk because it means your floor is covered with 2 inches of toilet water. True story, unfortunately. 2 loads of towels, and 1 ruined nap for mamma = disaster averted.

:: Thanksgiving was stuff-a-licious. Food, family, and playing Ticket to Ride creates a day of perfection for me. ;)

:: I actually went out on black Friday. To Wal*mart. By myself. Insane, I know. BUT I waited until 7:30 so call me not-so-crazy. I still got everything I wanted/needed there.

:: If your husband comments on your lack of blog posting.... you really haven't been posting.

:: Our Christmas decorations are all up. All we need is our tree, which is NOT fake so maybe this weekend? Can't wait!!

:: Christmas music makes me happy.

Don't You Hate It When...

Don't you hate it when you wait in the doctors office for 40 minutes before you even get to go back to "the room"?

Don't you hate it when you have to give pee samples?

Don't you hate it when the nurse comes into the room and informs you that they aren't able to take care of the semi-permanent procedure you were hoping for today because you are...

...wait for it...


I guarantee there was a serious deer in the headlight look radiating from my face. After picking my jaw up off the floor and poking my eyes back into their sockets I asked the nurse what any mother who is only 7 1/2 weeks removed from giving birth would, "What? ARE YOU SURE?"

Then my mind gets to work. "Will you please check again, because there was already a 'sample' in the door when I opened it, so I took mine back out and wrote my name in BIG letters. Can you please check and make sure you didn't mix them up?"

The nurse says she'll check again and leaves me alone with my thoughts, my eyes welling with tears, my mind in shock.
"Babies are a blessing. I JUST HAD A BABY. My pregnancies are not very forgiving. Newborns are a lot of work, pregnancy is a lot of work. How am I going to do this? Jeremy is going to totally freak out. I'm going to totally freak out!! At least they'll be close. Hey, I'll be done having kids by the time I'm 30. Please let that test be from the wrong sample."

The nurse comes back in and apologizes about 30 times, and I can't keep from cracking up laughing. Mix-ups. Don't you hate it when that happens?

It's Official

The first Scentsy consultant in Washington State has been kicked to the curb like an empty diet coke can. No joke. All I got yesterday when I tried to log into my workstation was a message saying: "Status Invalid".

Can you believe it? No "sorry to see you go" gift basket was hand delivered to my door. No "we miss you and want you back" card was sent. Heck, I didn't even get a phone call. It's worse than getting dumped via text message. It's like they just changed the locks and left my stuff by the door. This is the thanks I get from a company for whom I have given 4 years of dedicated service. Ok, well maybe half-hearted service was really what I gave but come on!

Really, I'm kidding. I knew this day was coming. So I'm officially not a consultant anymore and it's actually a great feeling! I've been contemplating quitting for a while and now it's finally official. So about those warmers and testers...

I've got some stock left if you need a quick holiday gift. And if any of you know a consultant who wants to buy my testers PLEASE feel free to send them my way!

Welcome to Loserville

1. I love Amy C. but seriously WHAT. WERE. YOU. THINKING? Vicky needs to be sent back to Crazytown where she came from. What a loser. Both of them.

2. I totally ate a nut roll during The Biggest Loser. Whoa, who is the loser now?

3. It's been a week since I posted. Whoa, it's me. I'm the loser!

4. I didn't buy a ticket to Twilight. Jer's been bugging me since about not going. Again, me, the loser.

5. Yesterday Nicole blogged about having an extra ticket to the extreme Twilight extravaganza here in our end of the 'hood where everyone and their mother bought a ticket so they could get VIP status at the local theater. Jeremy promptly called her to pull me a out of my loser status, even though I was desperately trying to keep my loser status alive and kicking by telling him I didn't want the ticket. He didn't listen. He's so NOT a loser.

5. I just read my cousin's wife's blog and what do I behold? She has our "Get your Eat on Blog" linked, but not my personal one. Sheesh, this must be a total loser blog if it can't even get linked by your cousin's wife.

The end.

Dear Blogger Buddies-

It's been going on long enough and I can't take it anymore. I've been trying to turn a blind eye, but I just can't do it anymore. I'm not being true to myself by staying silent.

PLEASE turn off the comment verification. It kills me to leave a comment and have to re-type silly nonsensical words over and over (because, really, who gets it on the first try?). If you have issues with robots posting random comments I'll understand. But if it's merely up there because you never turned it off why not make a girl smile and huck it out the window.

All my love,

Wedding Candids

Brynnlee is all about the "married party" "married flowers" & "married dress".
She's still talking about it. Heaven help us in about 20 years.

3 cousins in 1 year!

Vacation in a Nutshell

  • We drove to Spokane and I entertained 3 kids for 9 hours... 4 of which included mass amounts of cartoon watching.

  • Driving all night and arriving at my brothers at 5:07 am.

  • Stopping in Dillon, MT at 12:38 am. I took Brynn to the bathroom, came back so Jeremy and Kaden could go, nursed Ella while the family waited and waited, only to have Kaden and Brynns both declare they were thirsty 4 blocks after getting back on "the road."

  • The drink run in Dillon gave us the opportunity to take the Business Loop, which was awesome only because we saw a sign declaring the upcoming "Methodist Pasty Sale". Who knew Methodist Pasties were different?

  • Trick or Treating in downtown AF, UT.

  • Trying to get a family pictures. Extended family pictures. Too many babies, too many distractions.

  • The wedding of my sister, "Rocker" aka Alicia, and Jeremy.

  • JCW's run in between the Temple and the family luncheon. Those cheese fries were calling our name!

  • Seeing lots of long lost friends and family at the reception.

  • The blessing of little Breyton, my nephew.

  • Meeting up with the one and only goddessdivine.

  • Drinking obscene amounts of Pumpkin Spice Eggnog.

  • Cruising the aisles of Smith & Edwards. The candy aisle held my attention for about 30 mins and set us back about $30. I'm a sucker.

  • Squeezing every drop of enjoyment out of those 72 hours in Utah with family before the long drive home.

My Husband and Brother think they are SO HILARIOUS!

***This blog post was written by Jeremy and Nathan while I WAS actually meeting with a blogger.  She's real and I'll prove it- after I change my password.***

Today the family decided to watch Lord of the Rings and I have to admit that I got a bit bored so since I was in Utah I decided to hang out with one of my imaginary friends. It was so fun, we talked about all the blog posts that were so funny. We also reminisced about all the good times we had in blog world. It was great to have an imaginary friend. This is a picture of me and my imaginary friend hanging out. I think everyone should have an imaginary friend.
