My back KILLS. I'm not used to sitting at a desk all day anymore. I can't wait until I can afford to go to a chiropractor again!

I love my job. It's such a great company to work for. I love all my co-workers. I even work with one of my old friends from high school. We have tons of fun at work!

I miss my kids! Jaden and Kaylie are having so much fun with their daddy though. Of course they are eating ALL of their vegetables and good, healthy meals. Those little stinkers! Why won't they do that for me? :)

My new obsession is SCRABBLE! I freaking love that game! Patti got me addicted to it. Every time I go over there, we play and she kicks my ass. We get really into it, cursing at each other, then saying "love you" and giggling and joking around. It's so much fun!!! I've only beat her and Jack one time, and one time only. Hopefully I can beat her soon!!!

July 3, 2011 my sister and I will be in VEGAS!!! Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block concert!!! woooohoooo! We bought our tickets yesterday. We can't wait. It's going to be a good time!

My mom is moving back to Utah!!! Walt and Remi are coming with her, too. :) I am so happy about this. It will be great to have them here! Hopefully it will be early spring that they will be here. yay!

I hate my bangs. I liked them for a few days, but now I'm over it. And even worse, my hair stylist cut them even shorter and made them look sooo weird. She was trying to blend them so I could swoop them to the side, well that didn't work out so well. Ugh. I hope they grow fast. (and no, Nicole I'm not talking about you. You did a fine job with my bangs and I loved them. But then got sick of them. And then some chick messed them up. lol)

My husband is getting married. sniff*sniff* I guess he will have to be my ex-husband now. But I'll wait until he is officially married to divorce him. :) (I'm talking about Nick Lachey, duh!)

Pandora is pretty much the best thing ever. I get to listen to it all day at work on my earphones. LOVE it. I'm all about variety and randomness.

P90x baby! I'm TRYING to start doing it consistently. It's such an awesome set of workouts. I'm going to the Dalton's home every Wednesday in So. Jordan for Fit Club. We do p90x workouts and have yummy shakeology and recovery drinks. Any of you wanna come, let me know!!

I'm going to try to update my blog more. My blog has been boring lately.

Merry Christmas!

1.   Holiday spirit  is important and makes me really happy! I don't like when people are "scrooges" during the holidays. It's always fun to find the kid within!

2.  The holidays are incomplete without family, Christmas music, Christmas decorations, the Lord.

3.  My favorite things to do around the holidays is   sing Christmas songs, decorate the treet, eat goodies, take the kids to visit Santa, buy presents! 

4.  A holiday tradition my family and I have is  we used to get a real tree and decorate it together; we'd have Godfather's Pizza on Christmas Eve, drive around and look at Christmas lights in the neighborhoods and go to Temple Square.

5.  Holiday music is   the best!!! I love it!

6.  This year, I'll be spending the holidays in SUNNY Arizona with Jamie, at my mom and step-dad's house. I can't wait!!!!

7.  Holiday wish list  Play perfume by Givenchy, tall sexy black boots, jeans, Scrabble, jewelry, gift cards so I can buy clothes.

I love my kids

Gobble Gobble!

For Thanksgiving this year we went to my brother and sister in law's house. Jaden and Kaylie always have so much fun playing with their cousins. It's a nice break for me since they play the whole time and have someone else to entertain them. :) My sisters and I got to play a fun card game. Crystal made THE yummiest Thanksgiving dinner ever. Thanks so much Crystal! We had a really good time.
I am soooo grateful for my family. We always have fun together. It makes it really nice that Jamie likes to hang out with my family as well. He likes having other men to talk sports with. :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanksgiving with friends!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our friends last night. Jack and I made a DELICIOUS turkey all by ourselves. We had a TON of food - turkey, Jack's famous mashed potatoes and gravy, salads, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mac and cheese casserole, yummy bread with sauce, pies, etc. We started talking about what we are all thankful for and decided it is dating sites. Why? Because that is how all of us met. Jamie met Patti on Singlesnet; Patti met Slim Shaney on Singlesnet; Patti met myself and Ben because of Jamie; Matt and Tanya met on; and of course Jamie and I met on Singlesnet; and that is how we are all linked together. 
I am so grateful that we have such great friends and have a blast hanging out together. They really are like a second family to me. 

(Patti and Jack have me addicted to Scrabble now - and this time I kicked butt! I won!)

(this was right before Kaylie threw up all over Patti's carpet. Poor girl was sick the rest of the night - so we ended the night early.)
(Jaden was there, but he was too busy playing with his friends.)

Working woman!

It's official. I am now a working woman! It feels good to be working again and making money. I work at Orbit Medical, it's a medical supply company. I am customer service for oxygen patients. So far I really like the company, the job and the people. It's part time, the hours are perfect. My first day leaving for work Jamie stayed home with the kids. I hugged Jaden goodbye and told him I was going to work. He said to me, "Mommy why do you have to go to work?" and I said, "cuz I gotta make some money for us." then he said, "But I thought Daddy was supposed to work and make money for us?" awwww what a smart little kid. I love him. I hugged him and said, "Well Daddy isn't working right now, so Mommy needs to work." He smiled and said "Oh okay Mommy."

Anyway, I feel great. I love having adult interaction again and getting some time away from the day to day life of motherhood. :)

It's all about the little things

Things I love about my kids...
1. Listening to them sing all day long.
2. Kaylie being my sweetie pie, cuddle bug and bff. She loves to cuddle and take naps with me and rub my back or arms.
3. The way Jaden says froot loops.
4. Anytime I leave the house and do errands without them Jaden always says, "I want something to make me happy while you're gone." Which means I want a treat!
5. Kaylie doing her excited squeal. She gets excited over the littlest things.
6. Whenever they want something like a new toy, they say "When Daddy sends us money I want that," or "Daddy has money, he can buy it."

7. Their adorable smiles and giggles.

GirL's NiGhT OuT!!!

 Friday night was girl's night out with Patti and friends. We went to Thaifoon, a really cool restaurant downtown and then went dancing! We had a good time, but missed our boyfriends a lot! It was nice to get out and have some girl time though! Thanks to my sister for babysitting my babies. :)

"All You Need" by Jaden James :)

Who in the world wakes up singing? I can tell you who...JADEN! Jaden wakes up singing, literally. Whether he is waking up from a nap or early in the morning at 6 am. The minute he opens his eyes he starts to sing. I think it is the cutest thing ever. He loves to watch the Thomas & Friends videos and listen to the songs. This one is his favorite and usually is the one he is always singing. He knows most of the words to all of his favorite songs. His memory is amazing and so is his voice. :) I am pretty positive he is going to be a singer. I love to hear him sing all day long.

Some of his favorite songs...
Real Gone - Cars theme song
Life is a Highway
all of the Thomas & Friends songs
Jingle Bells
Come on Ride the Train -
Quad City DJ's
Airplane song
(from Barney)

1.   The most spontaneous thing I've ever done was off the top of my  head...go to Vegas last minute with my boyfriend at the time. We just got in the car and drove there for the night. It was so fun. 

2.  The best gift I've ever received was other than the obvious (my kids)...a scrapbook that my mom made me of the first 21 years of my life. I love to look at it and reminisce. :) 

3.  A time that I was truly and genuinely surprised was when I found out I was pregnant with Kaylie...LOL, Jaden was only 2 1/2 months old...I remember calling Nicole and she thought I was joking. 

4.  I can't leave the house without my cell phone and chapstick.

5.  My favorite day of the week is Thursday because   Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice! :) My life is sooo exciting.

6.  Something that can always make me laugh is  Friends! the TV show

7.  My perfect day would include  sleeping in, Starbucks frap, play with kids, hang out at the pool, take a nap, gym, watch shows, yummy dinner and stay up late :)
