plane ride reads

i have been wanting to get this book by amanda blake soule! she is so great. now that i will have some quiet reading time, i splurged and got it. cant wait to get my eyes on these pages!

lets hope i make a bigger dent in this list before tomorrows end! i am a list person. i must say i dont make them very often, but when i do, i seem to get alot more done and feel like i accomplished more. speaking of lists, i love these wonderful little lists makers. this one and this one would have me making lists about everything!
i am trying to get everything ready for my mom to come so we can hop on a plane for a short getaway. my motherly instincts are kicking in. i am having those nesting feelings again! i want everything clean, meals planned, things for them to do. lots to prepare. but i am sure everything will go well. i am very much looking forward to our vacation, just him and me. we are staying here. so very excited.
back to that list.

things on my mind...
* i think i have a weird addiction to snapping clouds.
* i want to shout from the rooftops that both my children where in bed before 6!
* addie better take a nap tomorrow, didnt get one today, thats why she went down so early.
* my toe is throbbing from having a ziploc container full of spaghetti fall on it today. i cried!
* what does a he and a she wear to a nashville star finale? i need to go shopping.
* i can loose weight, i can loose weight, i can loose weight, i can loose weight....
* i will go to the gym tomorrow, even if i have to drop my crying callie to the sweet old lady in the day care. when i went to pick her up she was rocking her and was just so nice. how appreciative i was to her for loving her while i was working out!

we went shopping at the mall today for some clothes for me. none of mine fit. enough said. so after going to every single store and not finding anything, i was very frustrated and depressed. why is it that designers think that everyone has, or should have a body like a manican? seriously so frustrating. i went to sees candy and bought a large amount of chocolate.

bbq with mimi and papa.
steak, one of your favs.
you were crabby because you got shots the day before.
but then happy when we put your swim suit on.
went swimming, of course.
you tried to grab the cupcake the minute it was in your sight.
you ate the whole cupcake.
and wanted more!
you were completley spoiled.
addie "helped" open your gifts.
lets hope these new toys entertain you.
you are loved by so many.
you are such a joy.
you are so sweet.
your hugs warm my heart.
happy birthday.

a way to beat this heat!

i live in an oven! i am so sick of this heat. it is a bazillion degrees outside. it is making me cranky and tired. i am so hot. why do i live here again?
and.... i am sick of the traffic and detours and nonsense.i got stuck in this traffic jam on my way home from ice cream scarfing.
what should have taken me 20 min. took and hour and half. i think i am being punished.

nashville, tn

my husband has won multiple things on the radio, movie tickets, baseball tickets, hockey tickets, CDs, tickets to concerts ( Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, Sammy Hagar, ect.) and some other random stuff. he called me up this morning and told me he won tickets to see the finale of Nashville Star! yah. i was shocked! have you ever watched the show? i wasnt so crazy about it at first, but now that they have booted alot of the people i dont like, its pretty good (if you like country music). the tickets include 3 days, 2 nights, flights, and hotel! i am just hoping my mom can watch my kids! and i need to ween my 1 year old! yes i am still nursing, thats another story. shes addicted!

stuck in a rut

i have been in a rut. we all have at one time or another, right? i have been busy. but feel like im not really doing anything. i am tired. but i have so much to do, or want to do. i want to stay up and quilt and finish my vampire book! :O) so silly. but i love it. and mention it way too often. no more mentioning it, promise. i need to go to bed so i can be rested and be a happy, energetic mother tomorrow. but that quilt is calling my name!
just been down, so i will start fresh and continue on with the photo a day tomorrow.

it was a lovely, cool morning and with us being gone for a week i had some very large weeds in our yard. so i decided to go out and take advantage of the weather! i heard some splashing and turned around to see these two, one naked, playing in the water puddles from the storm we just got! goggles on and all! silly girls!
*** we had a most horrible drive yesterday! we got about 30 min. to the valley and there was a huge fire of some sort blocking the road. after an hour of waiting, they made us turn around, go all the way back to payson and go through globe! it was AWFUL!! what should have been a 3 hour drive ended up being a 7 hours of hell! we left at 11am and didnt get home till 6 pm! i had to go to the grocery store this morning and callie screamed bloody murder when i put her in her seat!

leaving in about 30 min.
im not looking forward to getting out of the car and the heat hitting me like a blanket on fire. no, not looking forward to that. or the drive home. that reminds me, i need to go pack some treats to stuff my childrens face so they will stay quite. maybe some ear plugs too.
we will miss you mountains!
