Rehersal Dinner

We officially have 15 weeks until are trip to Maryland for Brandon's sister's wedding. 98 days!! I know that I'm getting super excited about the wedding. It'll be a wonderful vacation, and the 1st time that Brandon's dad, sister and step mom meets Miles.

We are ordering Lacey's Flower Girl dress in 2 weeks. The Bridal stores I have talked to say to put it off as long as possible, but give us enough time get it altered if we need to get it altered. Lacey gets to make the final choice on the dress she wants. Brandon's sister picked out a few, and then we went and looked at some. Lacey found one that she loves. According to her Aunt Annie will love it too!! She had to do the spin test, the bigger the spin the better the dress.

Here is my dress for the rehersal dinner.

16 months

On Friday my little man will be 16 months. Where the heck has time gone? It seems like just yesterday he was a newborn baby and I was bringing him home from the hospital. Now he is a walking, semi talking, all boy 16 month old.

He amazes me every day. He has no fear! Climbs on tables, goes down the stairs, jumps into the pool...I think he would jump in even if someone wasn't there to catch him.

He has started taking off his diaper when he is stinky and lets you know that he is stinky. He brings you the wipes and says "Tinky" I think potty training is in our near future.

He is onery as they get. When he is doing something he knows he shouldn't be doing he gets this devilish grin on his face, it makes everyone giggle. He is full of life.

He says a few words, mom, Daddieeeee, mam maw (grandma), papa, sis, thank you, and please. He says pup when he sees a dog, and what's this when he sees something outside. He loves being outside and he loves birds and other animals outside. If he had his way we would be outside from the time we wake up to the time we go to bed.

I love watching him grow and can't wait to see what milestone he hits next.

new clothes!

After hitting my goal weight and sitting steady at it for a month I decided it was time to buy some new clothes. Everything I owned was WAY to big. I mean it would fall off. My pants I would have to pull up or wear a belt, my shirts look like tents. So today I went shopping.

It's Father's Day yes I know. It should be all about my wonderful, handsome, awesome hubby. Well if his wife isn't happy he isn't happy. LOL. So I shopped. With the 2 kids all by myself. Let's just say by store #2 I was wondering what the heck I had signed up for. They were actually very good and helped me make some good choices.

I have decided I like dresses. I'm a tomboy, jeans and tshirts, being outside, camping, bugs, snakes, worms...I love it all, dresses not so much. However my wonderful mother in law gave me some dresses and in doing so made me realize that I LOVE Dresses. Today I tried on 5 or 6 dresses. I bought 3 of them!! The most dresses I have ever owned. I bought my dress for my sis in laws wedding rehersal. It is super cute and a size 10. Yes a size 10!! I could have gotten by in a size 8 but my boobs are just way to big. The best part it was only $11!! It was orignally $90. I couldn't pass it up.

I also got 2 pairs of capris, 3 tanks and 3 camis. I tried on shorts and they are either 2 long or too short. I can't do short shorts. I guess it's because I'm a mom and I want to be a great role model for my 2 babies. I want them to respect their bodies.

After trying and trying to drop below 150 I have decided it is a great weight for me. Very easy to maintain, and I get told if I go any lower I will look sick. I'm in a size 10, I haven't been a size 10 since my freshmen year in high school!! In fact I tried on some 8's that fit. My tops I bought largers well because I have big boobs. I did try on a large in the misses and it was way to big so a Medium would've been perfect, but the didn't have a medium....

I hope eveyone is having an awesome Father's Day. We are waiting for Brandon to get home and then heading out to my folks house for dinner!!

A long weekend

On Thursday the kids and I made the 2 hour drive to KC. I had a dentist appointment with the worlds best dentist (Brandon's uncle). Only 4 more appointments and all my dental work will be done. I am having all the silver taken out and white caps put on. I dropped the kids off at my in-laws for my appointment. After my appointment I went and hung out with my mother in law, and Brandon's Aunt and cousin. It was a very nice, margarita relaxing, evening.

Friday morning we got up early and headed to Baldwin City to see Thomas the Train!! We got to ride Thomas, take pictures with him. It was very nice. However it was too dang hot and Miles doesn't deal well with heat.

Friday afternoon Miles and I left and left Lacey with Grandma Andrea. Papa Jim was going to Nebraska to play golf so they were having a girls weekend. I got home Friday night and Brandon had informed me that our laptop had a virus.....It didn't have a virus when I left Thursday morning. I did everything in my power to fix it, but it was too far gone. So Bradon took it to Best Buy on Saturday morning. The Geek squad said they can fix it, but in honesty we needed a new laptop. Ours had keys missing from a certain 3 year old who took them off. The screen didn't work a certain little sister dropped it. Brandon called me and we discussed it. A new laptop it would be!!

I must say I enjoyed the few days without a computer.
