Movie Night/Night in Rodanthe

Ok ladies get ready for a cry fest and bring your tissues, we have planned to see Night in Rodanthe Oct 2nd at the District at 7:20 and are thinking about getting some dinner before, so please all who can make it please come.


San Francisco/anniversary

My wonderful husband booked us a trip to San Francisco for our 5 year wedding anniversary and made arrangements for the boys, we left early Friday morning and came back late Sunday night. Our little getaway was wonderful we actually got to sleep through the night without our crazy kids waking us up, the plane ride was only an hour and 47 minutes but our plane was freaking tiny(2 seater)and that made me freak out but we arrived safe. We stayed in a city called Oakland because the hotel was cheaper(thanks Kelli) but the down fall was that we had to take the BART(subway) into San Francisco and where ever else we wanted and if we wanted to take a break or a nap then back on the train we went, so Friday we dropped our things off at the hotel and then walked around(Oakland is ghetto)and got some lunch and then went to rest and ended up sleeping for 5 hours, after our lovely nap we went to Pier 49 walked around and eat at a Irish pub(which had no Dr. Pepper) and kept walking all over seeing lots of cool stuff and also went to the Wax museum. We walked a lot and also took a lot of subways, trains and trolleys we were actually on a light rail bus thingy and it died right in the middle of the road as we we turning power and all it was kinds scary, none of the public transportation is smooth or quite. We made our way to China town which I was excited about because I thought I would get some purses at killer prices but in San Francisco they sell them for way more because people don't know how dirt cheap they sell in Hong Kong and New York so I'm sad to say that I came home with not purse.

We also hit a town called Haight Ashbury which is a 70's hippie smoking marijuana town, it was fun to see all kinds of different shops, they had a lot of Bob Marley stuff and bongs , then we made our way over to a town called Castro which is the gay/lesbian district and all I can say is WOW!! we mostly saw gay men and a few girls other then that we were the ones that stuck out like a sore thumb(nothing like a pregnant married women walking in a gay town). On our way back to Pier 39 we were on a bus and all of the sudden this crazy guy starts walking right in front of the bus yelling a flipping the bus driver off and would not get out of the way he seriously almost got ran over.

I have to say that there are some freaking weird people in San Francisco, the first day we arrived not even a hour we had a guy come up us wanted to sell weed, we say a shoeless homeless women digging in the trash looking for a drink and then she laid on the ground and licked it got up eat some crap off the ground and walked away and was looking in peoples car trying to get in them. But on the other hand I did meet some nice people, I had two different women tell them that I was a cute pregnant girl(which is always nice to hear)and then there is Dan who can make friends like nothing, he made friends on the subway and at the airport and talked to them for awhile. Sunday morning before we left we went to the Golden gate bridge but it was really cold and windy and we could only see half of the bridge because of all the fog but it was still really cool to see it. We had a really great weekend but I missed the boys and I'm glad to be home.

Just want to thank Jim Bramble for all the suggestions on the sites to visit.

Happy b-day to me!!!!

Today was my 28th birthday and it was great, last night my mother in-law made me a yummy dinner with Dan's family and had a fun night hanging out and then today I woke up to the house decorated and my cute boys at the table saying Happy Birthday mom!! then later we meet my dad, Dan and Nick and Nicole for lunch at East coast subs then came home and took a nap with my boys. My wonderful husband knows me so good and got me one of my favorite things a Massage to Breathe spa, I can't even tell you how much I LOVE massages and they are even better when your pregnant so after we get back from San Fransisco I'm going to get me a sweet massage. I had a nice relaxing evening, Dan took the boys out for a little bit (while I watched DWTS) and came home with Cafe Rio and then our friends the Anderson's came over and we just chilled. Even though I'm sad about being 28 I had a really good birthday.

My little brother came home for a visit for 6 days and left today to head back to Missouri and then he will leave October 3rd for Irag, we where able to spend time with him while he was here but it wasn't enough. From the information he was given he will serve in Irag anywhere from 6-7 months(and that could change). Bryce was able to spend time with his 1 moth old niece Kylee who he just absolutely adores, we also were able to have a family party and have everyone see him before he leaves. I hope that Bryce knows how proud we are of him and we love him to much, I'm going to have a hard time knowing he his in a very dangerous place and he is so far away. We love you Bryce!!!!

Soccer mania

Jordan had is first soccer game of the fall on Saturday and he did fantastic for being the first time playing at all, the whole team played really well and had a lot of fun. Jordan is on a team with a few of his friends and the team ranges from 3-5 year olds and they are freaking hilarious to watch. Last Wednesday we went to the t-ville rec center to meet his team and coach and they they got all there stuff handed out and my cute little Ryken didn't understand why he wasn't getting a uniform and started crying and said mom I want to be on Jordan's soccer team, it was seriously the saddest cry so then at the game on Saturday he kept trying to run on the field and play and just pretty much cried because he couldn't play, although! he made is way in the line after the game to give fives(see pics). Jordan has another game on Wednesday the 24th if anyone would like to come.

Big Belly

This is a close up of my ever growing belly, I feel that I'm freaking huge for only being 22 1/2 weeks and the sad thing is that I'm only going to continue to get bigger. I admit I should exercise more but I seriously have no energy after keeping up with my crazy boys, but one thing I will brag about is that I still fit into my regular pants(don't even as what seize it is) but that makes me a little happy and makes up for the rest of me getting huge. I'm happy to say that my bad headaches have gone away and all was good but not for long, whenever I'm pregnant I get sore hips and a really bad cramp in my left side and sometimes I can't even walk or if I do I look like a granny trying to walk(hey maybe for my b-day I could get a walker ha ha!!). After I had Ryken my pelvic bone and hips kept hurting so I went to massage therapy and found out that my hip was slightly out of place so when I lay down my left foot was a tiny bit longer then the right, so maybe that's what is going on again Ok sorry this was a stupid post but I just wanted to post my belly pic.

Holy Shit!!!!(sorry people)

I'm going to pull my hair out and just scream at the top of my lungs, my kids are the WORST sleepers in the whole freaking world. Whether I give them a nap during the day or not they still do not stay in bed so at that point I figure I will still give them naps so I can have my "alone time" to read, scrapbook, clean or nap. We put them to bed between 8:30-9:30 give or take and they never stay in bed or they just play around and then when we think they are sleeping we hear them in the night coming in our room to sleep with us, they probably come in anywhere from 5-6 times a night(every night) I can honestly say I can't even remember when the last time they went to bed and actually stayed in bed all through the night, seriously you only want to get up so many times during the night to put them back because you just want to sleep but you don't want them in your bed. Dan and I have tried the Nanny way but just telling them the first time we put them to bed that it's bed time and to stay in bed and then if they keep getting up just not to talk to them and repeat in needed, um ya that didn't work I'm at a totally loss and have no idea what to do so if any of you have some advise PLEASE feel free to help.


Butterfield Canyon

Yesterday we decided to go to the mountains and have a picnic, the drive was nice and relaxing while we listened to Jack Johnson and watched as the further we got up in the mountains that some of the trees are already turning fall colors. Fall is my favorite time of the year, I just love to see all the different colors that trees can turn. We found a nice spot of the road and had a picnic and they the boys wanted to explore so we wondered around and little and hiking, the boys found sticks are were using them as guns and weapons as we kept walking we kept hearing little sounds hear and there and discovered wild turkeys and further up the trial we saw a few deer. We also decided to drive to the top and look out over the Copper Minds(I hate heights) I looked for 2 seconds and then sat in the car while the boys looked out with Danny, it turned out to b a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Utah State Fair 2008

Last night we had a family night and decided to go to the Fair and have some fun, it was really crowded and the lines were long for the food but eventually we ate dinner and then just spent the night walking around looking at animals and playing on rides. We were on our way out and I said that we couldn't come to a fair and not have cotton candy, so we got one to share but the boys would not even try it they were like what the freak is this stuff and after a dozen attempts we managed to get some in Jordan's mouth only for him to over react and start gaging it was hilarious.

Scrapbook Expo update

I will be now going to the expo on Friday the 2oth between 3:30 and 4:00 and probably do the midnight thing, my pregnancy has caused me to forget that Jordan has his first soccer game on Saturday and I wouldn't miss that for anything so if anyone wants to join Nicole and I please do so.



Wow!! I seriously can not believe that this is the 7th anniversary of 9/11/01, where has the time gone. Even though it has been 7 years it's still hard to watch when they do shows about it, I can't even imagine going through that ordeal. Dan and I went to New York in December of '06 and ground zero was a site I wanted to visit while we were there and when I got there I didn't know what to think or how to feel, it was sad standing at a place where so many lost their lives. The whole place was fenced off and tarped(you could be peak through) but they had big pictures all around the fence and just looking at them hurt my heart but I'm glad that I was able to visit such a memorable place.

Nights in Rodanthe

Sweet!! I love the author Nicholas Sparks and now one if his fabulous books in coming to theater. Nights in Rodanthe is a great sad love story that made me cry and now I want to go to the movie and cry even move, so calling any and all that would like to join Tiff and I and go to this movie. I have this book if anyone wants to read it before the movie comes out, the movie will be out September 26th so anytime after that would be awesome so let me know I think it would be fun to get a group of girls and go have a cry fest.

Thursday, September 4, 2008


Jordan started pre-school today, he woke up bright and early and came in my room and said Mommy wake up it's time for school(with a huge smile in his face). So he started the day off with a good breakfast that dad made for him and then got all ready to go. Jordan was really happy to be at school and had no problem and just felt comfortable, I on the other hand was a little sad and kinda a few tears in my eyes but forced myself not to cry but as I was putting Ryken in the car to leave he said mom I want my Jordan so that made more tears come. I miss him but I know that he is fine and will have a good time.

Swiss Day's

I thought for sure I would need to be pushed in a wheelchair for Swiss Day's I was so freaking sore and tired but nothing could keep me from missing the best shopping day ever. We got to Midway around 7:30 and ate a yummy breakfast and off we were shopping. We had a big group

( my mom, sister and her baby, Ann, Kelli, Jen, Christine, Carrie and Tilia) and we all kinda just shopped and caught up with each other and when we were all done we eat a yummy lunch and the Dairy Keen(I think that's what it's called). And then back home to clean and unpack.

Moved and Happy

I hate being behind on my blogging so I'm at my Mother in-laws using her computer so I can catch up. So the moving plan was to start on Monday Sep 1st but we got the keys on Thursday August 28th and I couldn't just sit around knowing that I could be getting stuff moved, so the plan was that I was just going to move the light stuff and then when Dan was done with convention we would move all day Monday but it didn't turn out that way. Thursday I just had people calling me wanting to help with the move(the heavy stuff) so we started at 5:00 p.m and I didn't go to bed until midnight and then started right back up the next morning and by Friday night like 10:00 we had all our stuff moved. I woke up Friday morning extremely sore and tired, I did way too much lifting and bending up and down for being pregnant that I just want to cry but there was was to much to do and I had to keep moving by mid morning Friday I was ready to have a break down and just cry, so after my mom and I picked out paint she made me take a nap which was really hard to do while people were at the house cleaning and painting I felt lazy and stupid. We have the best family and friends ever if it wasn't for all there help we couldn't have moved in so fast. The boys had made friends with the neighbors the second day we started moving and they haven't stopped playing with them since, we feel really comfortable in the house and are loving it.

I just want to say thank you to the following:
My mom and Dad
Jer and Kelli
