our story :)

 The past couple of days I've been thinking a lot about how lucky and blessed I am. I am soooo grateful to have Jamie in mine and my kids' lives. He does so much for us and has welcomed us into his life with open arms. I haven't talked about him much on my blog because with any relationship I've blogged about, it's like I jinx myself. Call me superstitious I guess. I figured I better write some things I want to remember. 
Jamie and I met *cough-cough* on-line *cough-cough* last summer 2009. I messaged him first because he was hot. :) So we started emailing a little bit, then texting all day 24-7. After a few days he asked me when  he would get to hear my voice and talk to me on the phone. Well, for those that know me, know I hate to talk on the phone. He scored major points though because my mom has always said any guy that doesn't talk to you on the phone is a loser. She thinks texting is laziness and that the man isn't interested in you. Well after lots of experience with losers, I couldn't agree with her more! I kind of avoided the question for a few days and then finally said it was okay to call. He called within a minute of me texting him the okay. :) The second I heard his voice I was sucked in. I think he has such a hot voice. He didn't talk all ghetto like some black guys do (you KNOW what I'm talking about). We talked on the phone for a couple of hours that night and then made plans for a date later that week. My brother babysat for my kids and I drove up to Draper to meet him. I didn't want him coming to my house just in case I didn't like him so I offered to meet him half way, even though he offered to come pick me up. (more points for him!) We met in the parking lot of Cafe Rio in Draper. I got in his car and had my sunglasses on and was feeling sooo shy. He looked soooo hot. His smile was amazing. He always tells me at first he didn't think I was into him because I wouldn't look at him. I was so shy. Then we started talking and I got more and more comfortable. I took off my sunglasses and he said he was blown away by my big, pretty eyes. We had an instant connection. We had a little joke that we talked about previously on the phone that I wasn't chicken to make the first move on a guy so he of course brought it up in the car as we were driving to The Pie downtown. (pizza! more points for him!) I totally leaned in and kissed him to make sure he knew I was interested. :) Then after that we were joined at the hip the rest of the date. We had a really good time talking and chatting and kissing at the Pie. After that we drove around the Avenues and talked some more then I had to go home. It was a great night and I left there feeling like he was a keeper. We dated for a few weeks and then I decided I just wasn't ready to be serious with him. I felt like he had way too many girlfriends and was too much of a bachelor for me. So I dumped him and broke his heart. :( We stayed in touch (through text messages) about football and just random catching up here and there. Then in February of this year I went to visit him and saw him for the first time since August. I was going through a lot of things with AJ and couldn't figure out what to do. And he listened to me and let me cry to him and just talked to me like he was my best friend. He gave me some good, unbiased advice and ever since then I was really hooked. I had a couple dates after that with another guy and I just didn't feel the connection and was bored and missed Jamie. So I called Jamie that night on my way home from the date and left him a voice mail (that he still has) saying I wanted to see him and missed him. Blah blah, it was sooo cheesy. But he saved it and he loved it, so that's okay. :) Since March we have been inseparable. He has been my best friend and the best boyfriend ever. We have an incredible connection and I love it. We understand each other, give each other space, and have amazing chemistry. It's awesome and I love it. I'm soo happy that Jamie is in my life. I love you babe!!!

Brindley's 4th Birthday party

 A couple of weekends ago Nicole's daughter Brindley had her 4th birthday/costume party. It was such a fun time! Nicole hosts great parties! The kids all had so much fun. We started off eating yummy pizza and homemade rootbeer. Then the kids painted their own pumpkins. Then the kids all got to hit a Princess castle pinata and got LOTS of candy. Nicole made an amazing Princess Tiana cake/cupcakes. She is so talented at her cake making/decorating. Good job Nicole! =) Jaden and Kaylie are still talking about how much fun they had at Brindley's party. We love you Brindley! Happy Birthday!!!

 Brindley was a beautiful Princess Tiana (spray tan and all!!!)

Hand, foot and mouth

Hand, foot and mouth virus...what the heck is that you ask? Only one of the worst things I have ever experienced in my adult life. It is uncommon in adults...but I guess that doesn't include me! Because I got it and it was horrible. It started out as a fever and a really bad sore throat. I felt miserable for two days and then woke up Saturday morning (a few weeks ago) with my hands looking like this. They were sooo swollen and sore. I could hardly move them or use them at all. I went to urgent care not knowing what in the heck was going on with me. The doctor looked at my hands and said, "how's your feet? do they hurt, too?" I paused and thought about it and said, "yes a little..." and then ding ding ding in my head I knew what it was! Nicole's kids had gotten it a couple months prior. She looked in my mouth and saw bumps all over my throat and tongue. Yikes. She had to read up on it a little because she said it was very uncommon in adults. She said I would probably be miserable for a week or so. Thankfully I was only out of commission for two full days and then slowly started getting back to normal. My hands look disgusting now, they are peeling like crazy, and so are my feet. Jamie was Mr. Mom those 3-4 days because I could hardly do anything. He's the best :) And I am so grateful he was there to take care of my kids and I. Boy am I glad I made it through that week!!!

I have a nephew!!!

My handsome, adorable, cute little nephew, Golden Edward Thomas Jr. was born on September 30, 2010. On Friday, Jamie stayed home with my kids, and I was able to go meet my first nephew. I held him for most of the 3 hours that I was there. He is sooo handsome, has the cutest little head and face. Jaden is no longer the only grandson!

Jaden and Kaylie's first trip to the dentist

October 6, 2010...first trip to the dentist! They both did awesome. Jaden got to watch the Cars movie on the screen above the chair and Kaylie got to watch Bambi. They had x-rays taken of their teeth and got them all nice and clean. They were happy the whole time. :)

Pumpkin Party

 On Wednesday night the kids and I went with Uncle Ryry and Aunt Meme to pick out some pumpkins! We first piled in the car, Ryan squished in between the kids, and we went to Godfather's Pizza. We got the buffet, Ryan bought, it was good times had by all. :) 

Then we went to a little pumpkin patch by our house and picked out pumpkins. Jaden and Kaylie had never done that before so they thought it was pretty fun. 

We took them home and decorated them. Megan bought some cute felt decorations and some paint.

We had lots of fun being silly and taking pictures. I was so glad that Ryan and Megan came with us. We had soooo much fun with them. I freakin' love my family so much!!! :)
