Having the Sicks Sucks

I don't like having a cold, but I have one.

On a completely unrelated note, I honestly feel like I have been the worst blogger lately, but I'm just not feelin' it. I don't know what my deal is. I think up great posts in my pre-dream state, but when I sit down to the computer... nothin'.

Anyway I think the lack of exciting news has also got me feeling pretty mundane. But you know what they say, "No news is good news." So on that note, here's to not much in the way of posting.

Maybe next week will be different. And if not, I've got another tag up my sleeve. Enjoy your weekend.

Nagged and Tagged

I haven't really been nagged, but I stuck with Nicole's title, cuz it's funny.

4th folder, 4th pic you know the drill.

This is my nephew Jensen, whom my kids call Jensie. A fun day of water sliding in Great Grandma's backyard about 2 years ago. Can't believe it's been that long!

Really? You don't like free?

No one wanted that french kiss bar. Well, at least no one stopped by to get it.

So it's still up for grabs, along with all my testers. They are normal scentsy wax just packed into a jar, so if any of you out there want to try a new scent without purchasing feel free to stop on over.

And if you still don't have a warmer I can hook you up with that too, but not for free. I have one left from my inventory stock that I will sell you at a sweet deal.

I'm totally serious people. Come get it.

Kids that make you laugh are AWESOME

My friend Audrey from high school just posted a video of her daughter on her blog.

It seriously made me crack up, it's that cute!

Boring. Do Not Read.

What have I been up to? I know you are all dying to find out. Oh, you're not? Darn, well I guess my list is all for naught. And I worked so hard on it. SHEESH.

1. Jeremy and I have started P90X. And let me tell you the "X" isn't a joke. (x = extreme people, get your minds back onto the sidewalk) 2 days down 88 more to go. Are ya feeling my excitement? Me neither. But the muffin top has got to go, so I shall press forward.

2. I like eating. And more specifically I like eating sugar. I wonder if I have an addiction? I guess trying a sugar fast might shed some light on that, but we all know how that's gonna go down. We don't need to see it in real life.

3. It's almost the end of January. Wha??

4. I've been going to the chiropractor for like 6 days. He told me to come back again today, and I'm not gonna listen. Is that bad? I just haven't seen much in the way of results after the first few appointments and that co-pay isn't an easy swallow EVERY TIME .

5. DVR is back in tha house! Life is good. Not that is wasn't before, but now life is more convenient. Or maybe it's just more TV filled and commercial-less? The jury is still out. I'll revisit that later.

6. Hey did you all put A Very Duggar Wedding on your DVR schedule? Oh, it's just me?? Shoot.

7. Had a girls night out (but really IN) on Friday. So fabulous. I mean does it get better than sitting around till the wee hours of the morning talking about boobs, babies, and FACEBOOK?? High class up here. But for real, it was fun and I only ate 3 wontons even though I wanted to finish the whole tray. They were that good!

8. Can you tell I'm trying to curb my crazy eating? I don't think I can even post anything without trying to subconsciously mention food. NOPE. Can't do it.

9. Went to Costco on Monday all by myself. All I bought was toilet paper. Sweet, no?

10. This list is even boring to me.

11. Kaden & Brynns begged (threw a fit in Winco) me to buy them generic Macaroni and Cheese. When I had kids I vowed to only feed my children the "real stuff" thinking that might make up for all the other things I fail miserably at as a mom. Well just to show them I let them buy all the generic they wanted and told them they were "gonna eat every box". Yeah... so they just ate the last box and keep declaring to me "This is the best macaroni ever!!"

Oh, Yeah!

Remember way back when when I said I was baking up wedding cake... yeah way back then.
Well here it is.
Sweet, and simple. My favorite kind to do.

We didn't get a lot of pictures of Christmas morning. I was feeding Ella and Jeremy was caught up in the excitement. Brynnlee loved her Wedding Barbie and Kaden's bow & arrow set made him the happiest boy alive. Ella just looked cute and enjoyed the chaos.

*video will be coming shortly*

Wow, Nice Gift

Remember this post? Go on. Link. I'll wait.

So isn't it fitting that Jeremy goes to Phoenix and brings these home for the kids?
Nice. Real nice.

And this is even better.
I almost threw up just taking this picture.

They haven't gotten to the scorpions yet. They got nervous after a few licks and wrapped them in Saran Wrap and currently they are in the fridge.... ick.

Tri and Tri again

I've foolishly told my sister I will do a triathlon with her again this summer.

Anyone else feeling insane and want to join me?

New Year Realizations

I'm typing here on my kitchen counter as I wait for the last of the fortune cookies to come out of the oven. Yes, fortune cookies. Our New Year's dinner the last few years has been Chinese New Year themed. This year I thought I'd be clever and make fortune cookies. Can't be that hard, right?

Let me set the record straight:
Don't mess with the fortune cookies business!! The Chinese have that market cornered- they do it better, faster, and cheaper. I'm just warning you.
