9 is the magic number

9 DAYS since I last posted. Whoops. I could say, life is hectic, that's why I haven't posted but the reality is, I've just been pretty lazy. I don't have a computer at home, so all of my posting is done here at work. And those that know me, know that my job is not hectic by any means. So let's see what I have that's interesting to talk about. 

Last week I called in "sick" Thursday. I hope to the good lord above, that my big boss doesn't somehow stumble upon this. If so...stop. reading. now. ~ I went to the zoo w/ the mil, fil, sil, Kinzi, Makenna, Kaden and Kason and Melissa's 3 nieces. It was the PERFECT day to go. The weather was perfect and Kinzi was in the best mood ever! We had a blast!





Finally got the see the baby elephant, Malee!!!

Last weekend was fun too! When is a 3 day weekend not fun? Saturday we had family pics. Let's just say...it was HOT and I didn't get a discount. Wonder is my photographer reads this? If so, then so be it. I'm not a happy camper anyway (as previously stated). After pics, Jacob made the comment, "If we didn't have Kinzi, we could go get tattoos!" I got on the phone, called mom and off we were to drop K off and get tattoos. Well, I got one, Jacob didn't, because everywhere closed at 10. He was mad and pouty but I was super excited about mine. Now I want to fix all the ones I have. He's got me on a tattoo kick now. He got his done Sunday so no worries for Mr. Pouty Pants. He sure knows how to wear them well!

Not the best picture. It looks a lot better now.


Sunday night, my mom kept Kinzi. I cleaned ALL DAY Monday. Now my house is clean and I LOVE it! I have much more respect for Mothers now that I am one. It is a lot harder than people think to work, take care of a baby and a house.

We (I) decided a nice little family vaca would be awesome. So, I threw the idea at Jacob last night and he said ok! So, next weekend we are going to Tulsa and taking Kinzi to the Oklahoma Aquarium! I am SO excited!! We need this getaway. Even though it's nothing big, it's still something.

My precious Kinzi is 9 months old today! CRAZY!!! Absolutely crazy! I cannot believe in 3 months, she will be 1!!!! I love you so much Kinzi. You have no idea. Words cannot begin to explain my love for you! I have her pics scheduled for July 29th. I'm getting them done a month in advance so I can put her pictures on her birthday invitations. Melissa told me, "You're going to be one of those moms that people say "oh god" about!" Haha! I am a ad bit over the top when it comes to her. She's had 2 month, 6 month, 9 month and about to have 11 month pictures done. I have all kinds of ideas for her birthday party, just don't know where I want to have it. It's "Ladybug themed". I even found ladybug balloons!!! I can't wait! This is so fun!!!

Tomorrow is Kinzi's well baby checkup. Which means....shots : ( ugh!!!!! Poor babies. I would be pissed if someone was giving me 3-4 shots in my thighs. It literally breaks my heart into a million pieces. I don't know how the nurses do it. The first time Kinzi had shots, she cried so hard, she wasn't making a sound. It was awful. I know she's going to start realizing what's going on and I'm going to have to hold her down. I'm so glad my mom goes with me. I'll update the stats on Friday. I know she's grown like crazy!!! Almost time for a BIG GIRL carseat!!!

Re-cap

Sat: We got up, went to target (because we arrived at the mall 45 minutes early. Early risers in the Barnes household.), then went to the mall then back home for a nap. We had planned to take pics but that was a no go (per the photographer - whom said she had a higher paying client - which kind of rubbed me the wrong way. But eh, whatev I guess), so we just sat at home. Sunday, we got up, hung around the house, played a lot, then went to the mall to return the stuff I bought for pictures, then to Sams then to Wal-Mart. We like to shop : ) That is seriously what I did all weekend. I spent the WHOLE time with Kinzi and I LOVED it!

Kinz is learning so many new things. She's mastered the art of screaming and she (apparently) is obssessed with it. She screamed a lot, while we were in Target Saturday. I just kept telling myself, "People that have kids, understand!!" It was funny though. She is walking with a walker (not the sit-in kind, but the stand up kind). And she's started standing by herself. She dances and claps and it's adorable. She's also slowly learning how to do the Indian call, that's what I'm gonna call it.

First busted mouth = First Mommy freak out!

You read it right. Kinzi busted her mouth yesterday and busted the top of her mouth open. Where her lip is attached the her gum, yeah, right there. She was crawling *really fast* and her little arms couldn't keep up with her long legs so she face planted, right on the floor. I picked up her because she started crying, but she only cried for about 5 seconds then was fine. So I thought, no worries, she's good. About 5 minutes later she looks up at me, after playing and laughing, and there is blood on her chin. I immediately freaked! I yanked her up, took her in her room and laid her on her changing table. At this point I see blood on her arm and all over her shirt. I freaked out more! That's when I raised her lip up and saw the rip on her top gum. Jacob said she was fine, which she was. But, I wasn't! I started bawling. It scared the crap out of me to see blood coming from my baby's mouth! No mom ever wants to see that!! Thank God one of us was calm. I called my mom and she said Kinzi was fine. That's a lot more assuring than Jacob telling me the same thing. Moms know more. ;) This morning she woke up and screamed the whole time I got ready. It was torture; for both of us. When I dropped her off, she was still whining. So, I sat and rocked her back to sleep. Of course, I was an hour late to work but go ahead and ask if I care. Nope!

On a brighter note: K got new shades this weekend. Actually, it was her first pair!

Hope this works!

Funk

I'm still kinda in a funk today. I think it's this crappy weather. I'm doing everything I can to get out of it. So here is to me being POSITIVE! *Cheers to that* With my imaginary alcoholic beverage.

Yesterday when I picked K up, she was in the best mood. And she wanted to play the piano, so I recorded her doing so. I still need to figure out how to post videos without having to upload them onto YouTube. For now, here is a pic. LOVE HER!!!

Cranky Pants

I'm wearing them today. I don't know what my deal is. 1. I miss my baby and 2. I think I might be getting a little discouraged. 3. I'm starving.
1. I miss Kinzi so much today. I always miss her but it's more than usual today. She was so fussy last night so I didn't get much cuddle time in. Aaaannnddd...she still sleeps with us. I have been so back and forth about this. Everyone has their own opinions but I've decided, she will sleep with me for as long as I want her to. This is the only baby I'm going to have and she's not going to be a baby forever. So it is what it is and she will continue sleeping with me. If Jacob has a problem with it (which, he hasn't said anything yet) then he can be the one to break her from it. I'm not really sure what set me off about that but something did.
2. I weighed and I haven't lost anymore weight and I'm working out more than I was when I was dropping the weight. It could be muscle but I'm just feeling down. Which bring me to my #3. I'm starving today. I just want to pig out on the worst crap. I want some chicken nuggets, a burger and fries and some Reese's. It's not gonna happen. I won't let it. But, man do I want it.

Family pics are next weekend. I am so excited! I ordered Kinzi's outfit yesterday, go look at it!, it's so cute!!! Now, I just have to find matching stuff for me and Jacob. I'm going to try to find me an ivory colored shirt and Jacob a black one. Or maybe both of us black but I'll wear some ivory/pearl jewelry. I'm putting a lot of thought into this. I want them to look good!!!
Saturday I'm gettin my hair done. yay!!

Ostrich Eggs = Yummy!

Yes, no lie! They were yummy! Or at least I thought so. They were a lot like chicken eggs, a little egg-ier.
Ostrich egg omelet with ham and cheese.



The zoo was HOT!!! We were only there for an hour or so. Maybe a little longer. We went to Babies R Us after, then to my grandma's then to Red Lobster. I actually ate healthy. I had talapia with rice and steamed broccoli. When we got home, I was washing dishes and went I walked into the living room, there was a big coach box sitting in the glider. I was SO excited! I love love LOVE my new purse. He did good!


Yesterday we didn't do much of anything. Just went to Wal-Mart. I finally planted Kinzi's trees in pots. I'm surprised they stayed alive in those bags for 2 weeks. Watch them die now that I planted them in actual pots with soil and watered them. That would be my luck. They're country-fied. They are so small and flimsy that they were tipping over, so they're being held up now by welding rods and dental floss. haha. Hey, whatever works right?





Zoo Pics below!


haha!

This makes me laugh!

Jus' workin' on my fitness..

I've only missed 1 day this week at the gym. Which I am still mad at myself about. But, my grandma came up to my work to pick up a gate so I went to lunch with her and my brother. I could have passed up lunch and hit the gym but I don't see my Gma very often. Thank God for Jeri Kaye. I would not push myself as hard as I do when I work out with her. She's like my own (free!!) personal trainer! I know I whine and complain a lot about hurting and she just smiles : ) So, thanks for putting up with me being a baby.

I talked to Jacob today while I was waiting on my tanning bed to be cleaned and I just told him how I'm afraid I'm going to get discouraged. I'm afraid I'm going to keep at this and not see any results (I think me and jk talked about these fears throughout our entire workout today). He was very positive and told me to just stick with it and there's no way I won't see result. He told me he's proud of me. Which made me feel good but let's face it...He doesn't want a fat wife so of course he's going to be supportive. I've lost 51 pounds now since having Kinzi. I gained 70! So, I "only" have 19 more pounds to go to be at my pre-preg weight. I just worry that all my jeans still aren't going to fit. My body is so different now. But, I will NOT give up. Not only am I around jk (whom is NOT fat by any means and looks amazing!), my friend Shauna has been training for about 16 weeks now and is insanely skinny. It's inspiration. I want someone to be jealous of me! I want someone to look at me and say, "You do not look like you've had a baby!"

Lots goin on this weekend! Tomorrow morning, me, mom, Kinzi, Melissa and MJ are going to the zoo. My mom was so sweet and went to the zoo this morning and got us all tickets and t-shirts! Thank you mommy!!! We are going to the ostrich egg breakfast. I want to say "YUM" but I'm hesitant! The website says it's a buffet of chicken eggs, sausage, pancakes and more. Plus a chef making ostrich egg omelets per request. So, we will see!!! I think summer is almost here. The weather has been so crazy. It was freezing Monday and tomorrow is supposed to be 92. What happened to the 70's? Any who -- Saturday night is Red Lobster for Jacob's mom for Mother's Day. The Sunday is Mother's Day. My 1st one! I'm excited. All I have to say is...Jacob better be on top of his game! Pics to come Monday! Have a great weekend!!!! (I will leave you with some K pics : )
Beeeennnnddd....


And Snap!

Idiot Man

Last weekend was a bunch of craziness. Let me start by saying, it was probably the biggest waste of a weekend I've had in a while. But, definitely a story to tell.

Sunday was the Memorial Marathon. I was so excited about it, despite the chance of rain. I thought, no big deal, I'm still gonna do it. Well, little did I know that an idiot of a man (as usual...a MAN) on my team had to screw it up for everyone. I got there around 5:15. It wasn't raining yet and the temp was about 55. Not 5 minutes after arriving, it started to thunder...then came the rain, lightening and a 30 minute postponement of the race. Around 6:30. They called for all the timed runners to go to the starting line. I told the idiot man, that that was him. So, off he went and off the rest of us went (in the rain...which was now cold)  to the buss station to catch our buses to go to our designated areas where we start our leg. I was nice and warm in a church waiting when I got a phone call that idiot man was there. Which was crazy because I knew he couldn't run 6 miles in 50 minutes. He had just told me the day before that he was doing 3.5 miles in 45 minutes. So, turns out...he didn't listen to anything I had said and got in the group of 5K'ers and ran the 5K downtown. STUPID! I had his keys, he had to leave, it was cold and rainy and no one else wanted to run, so we just said screw it. I got home around 9, took a nap and went home. I got to hang out with my mom all weekend so it wasn't a total waste. And thank God for her. She always keeps Kinzi when I need her to. Thank you Mom! ~ Side Note: I'm planning on doing a few more 5K's this summer. One on June 25th for sure.

I started back at the gym Monday, like I said I would. I still can't get the whole, eating good, thing down though. That's my biggest weakness. Yesterday I went with Jeri Kaye and she pretty much kicked my ass. Every muscle in my body hurts. That's a good thing...I know. So thanks crazy Jeri. I love that girl.

Mother's Day is Sunday. And don't kid yourself, I have reminded Jacob a million times. There's no way he's forgotten. So on Sunday, if I don't have the black coach purse I want...I'm gonna be one unhappy Momma!

Yesterday I was letting Kinzi eat her afternoon snack. She was out and started banging on her tray. I picked up the cheeto can and started banging it on her tray back at her. She just watched so I sat it on top of her head. She just sat there. I laughed so hard. I LOVE HER SO MUCH!! Never a dull moment!


Crazy Kinzi...I hope you know how much I love you!! You make me smile every.single.day.

Friday-eee

That stupid song is stuck in my head. I'm sure every one's heard it. "It's Friday-eee Friday-eee!" A.Noy.Ing.

My mom is picking Kinzi up tonight. She hasn't spent a night away from me in over a month. It's like I have to train myself to handle it all over again. I'm hoping me and Jacob can go to dinner tonight. Maybe a movie...but that might be pushin' it. Mainly because of the fact that we are old married farts and our bedtime is 9! Sad, but true. Around 8:30, our eyes get heavy. So, we will see. I need to do laundry and clean somethin' awful so instead of a movie, I might be doing those household chores that don't get done during the week. And this weekend is going to be hectic anyway. Tomorrow I have to work the dreaded 1 Saturday a month for inventory. After that, I'll be headed to OKC to pick up the race packet. Then Sunday is the race. I'm a big ball of emotions about this race. I haven't been in the gym in almost 2 weeks and I totally lost motivation. I don't know what happens to me. We will get back to that in a minute. The race: I want to do good but I know it won't happen. I'm nervous about not seeing my guy and not knowing when I should start running. I don't want people looking at me because I'm going to look like an idiot. And to add to this nervousness, it's supposed to rain. AWESOME! Oh! And! I have to be there at like 5:30 in the morning. What did I get myself into?

The gym: I don't know why I lose motivation but I do and I am so mad at myself because of it. I was doing so good. I have told myself that Monday I'm getting back in. No ifs ands or buts about it. I'm doing it. And, I'm going to document what I do on here so then maybe I'll make myself do it. I'm just bummed that I haven't kept up with it. Monday will be a new day.

Lazy

I've been super lazy this week. Obviously I don't blog on the weekends because we don't have Internet at the house. Well, we don't even have a computer. haha. It's really sad when I think back to 4-5 days ago and can't remember, for the life of me, what I did. Ok, I've racked my brain and now I remember!

Saturday: We went to Lowe's and picked up our free tree. I was SO excited about this. If you know me, you know how much a LOVE free stuff!! I need to plant it. I hope it's not dead in the bag since it's been in there for 4 days now. I have to plant it in a pot for a year then plant it in a permanent location. I think this will be so cool for Kinzi. To plant a tree the 1st year of her life and watch it grow with her. It will be something she will always have. That's if I can keep it alive. Then we went to the mall. Jacob hates the mall. He hates everything pretty much unless it involves something boyish...ex. Hunting, fishing, dirt bikes...you get the idea. Then we met Robby at Brian's ATV in the city. It's crazy how many people that man knows. I met Brian, the owner. That man has so much money he doesn't know what to do with it. Must be rough. We left there and went to eat at Ted's. Kinzi sat in her high chair, ate her Cheetos and tortilla, all while banging on her plate, but didn't make a peep. I was so proud of her!!! An older couple was sitting across from us. When they got up to leave, the lady stopped at our table and told us how lucky we were because when their daughter was K's age, they couldn't take her anywhere without her screaming. It definitely put a smile on my face. Kinzi isn't always that good but she was SO good Saturday. We went to walmart, then went home.

Sunday: Easter! Yay!!! Kinzi looked so pretty!!! But by the time we got to church, she was already tired. She didn't get her morning nap and was not happy about it. She started fussing so I spent my hour and a half of church, carrying her around. fun. After church we went to the in-laws, had lunch then went home. Pics below. Of course :)



See! Tired and not happy to be taking pictures.

Her GiGi was not happy I gave her oreo's but Kinzi LOVED them!!



She's spoiled rotten! The Easter Bunny loved her! He brought her, eggs, bath toys, a dress, a summer outfit, little swimmer diapers and a ball popper toy.

And all she cared about were the eggs. Go figure.

Long time no see...

I haven't blogged in like a week. Crap! I said I was gonna do good with this. So lets try and recap!

Saturday (4/16) was my bday! We got up (well, I got up. No, I didn't get to sleep in on my birthday. Thanks Jacob. Thanks A LOT!) and got around and went to Bass Pro. Got Kinzi's pic taken with the Easter bunny. While were standing in line, there were kids crying left and right. I thought, 'oh lord! My kid is gonna be a screamer! I just know it.' Well, we were up, it was our turn. I walk close to the big, scary, on-crack lookin furry human dressed as a bunny and to my surprise, Kinzi starts smiling. I was like, YES!!!! So, I handed her over and she wanted to snuggle all up to him. She took a CUTE picture. And we left.
We ate at Saltgrass, which was gross. I wanted Outback but they were closed. lame. Went home, napped, and when I woke up I felt awful! I almost puked so I pretty much stayed in bed the rest of the day/night. Awesome 26th birthday huh?! Big party animal right herrrr!

Sunday I went to Mr. Isaac Merchan's baby shower. I guess I should say Francis' shower because isn't wasn't here yet. He made his arrival this morning at 9:26. He's right across the street right now and I'm dying to go see and hold him but I'm doing the polite thing and waiting until I'm told they're wanting visitors. But it's KILLING me!!!!! Back to the shower. I took Kinzi because I figured Francis might want to see her. Well, bad idea on my part. Not because Francis didn't wanna see her but because my child acted like a spaz! She was so bored and I felt so bad. She was making noises, she cried at one point too. So, I had to stand with her and walk around the entire time. Note to self: Do not take your 7 month child to something like that unless you know most of the people there. Everyone was staring at me and her and I felt SO uncomfortable. Won't be doing that again!

Monday when I got to work, my boss handed me a card. (Note the previous blog about being disappointed...haha. I should have known, he always comes through. He's pretty awesome!) I didn't immediately open the card, I sat and talked with him for about 30 minutes. I told him how mad I was that Saltgrass made me sick when I really just wanted to go to Outback. *Now, keep in mind, I'm not some huge Outback eater. I never talk about the place and the last time I ate there was before I had Kinzi.* Well, he got a phone call so as he talked on the phone, I opened my card. I will post pictures of the card because I think it's funny. Inside the card was a $50 gift card to Outback. I looked at him and he just laughed. How ironic is that?



Wednesday I had lunch with Shauna at BJ's. Love that girl! Then yesterday had lunch with Melissa at Interurban. Love that girl too. So that brings me to today. I want to go see "Water For Elephants". Jacob said he would take me but my mom is busy and I feel guilty asking people to babysit. So, we will save it for next weekend. Sunday is K's first Easter and I'm so excited to get her all dressed up! Pics will be posted Monday! Have a great weekend!!

Birthday Dissapointment

No, today is not my birthday but tomorrow is. Considering I don't work on Saturdays, I'm not gonna lie and say I wasn't bummed that the guys at work didn't do anything for me. BUT, then I realized...they're MEN! And men don't do meaningful things. A holes. So whatev!!!

And, I'm going to be one of those mom's today. I'm going to be one that brags about their kid. I love her SO SO SO SO much! Words can't describe my love for her. She is growing so incredibly fast that even her daddy noticed last night. Kellie Staats keeps telling everyone to take pictures...every.day. So, I've made it my goal to take a picture of her every single day. I took some last night. Here are a few.
Mmmmm this egg is nasty

No Kinzi, you can't walk quite yet.





P.S. The wind here is INSANE today! Gusting 70 mph!!!!

Shinedown on me.

Bridal Toms? NO! NO! and most of all, NO!!! I was on Scarlett's Blog and the ad showed the "Toms for Bride's" and I gagged a little. I like my Toms but won't buy another pair. They're for a good cause and all but lets face it, they're a fad and not cheap. And they make my feet smell somethin' awful! Anyway.

I had lunch with Miss Jeri Kaye today. I just love her. Her laugh is contagious (and she laughs all the time). We ate at Jason's Deli and that chick tried to rip me off. Me and JK got the exact same thing and they charged me $2 more. So I asked the girl and turns out she charged me for a drink when I clearly said water. I know, I know, nothing to get all heated about, but definitely blog worthy. Needless to say, I got $2.10 back. Which I was told by watching Extreme Couponing, that could be a box of cereal. That makes me think of what my mom gave up for lent....Cereal. She's funny! Love you Mom!

I always have a hard time titling my posts. I can't ever come up with anything clever.

On the way back from lunch, I opened the sun roof and jammed to some Shinedown. I will always be a rock 'n' roller at heart. My radio hardly ever leaves, Octane! Thank you Sirius for having an amazing rock station that NEVER has commercials! This is one of my faves...

Float Float Float...

Our float trip is scheduled and I'm SUPER excited about it. Come on July 15th!!! I always get so excited, only to have my dreams completely shattered! Our first trip in 07, I believe, was a complete blast!! Hot, tons of people, lots of beer, lots of food, and good times! BUT, the next 2 years sucked! BAD! It rained both times and it was freezing cold. I'm praying it doesn't rain this time and it's hot! I want this trip to be so much fun! And, I just realized, I don't have any pictures from any of the trips. Note to self: Take pics this year!

The title of this blog comes from this video. HILARIOUS!

Good News!

Jacob got a contracting job at Silver Star. We are both beyond happy about this. It will be great for our family!! There's so much to do in the process. We are currently getting quotes for personal limited liability insurance of 1 million. That's nuts! I've definitely learned a lot dealing with all of this. Today we went to the bank and opened business accounts. It made me feel old. Although the whole time we were waiting on the guy to print the paperwork, we acted like giddy teenagers. I miss him and his happiness.

This weekend was fun. Saturday I bowled "For Kids' Sake" for Big Brothers Big Sisters of OK. All the guys from work were there. It's nice to hang out with my other family outside of work. It's like I have 5 Dads! After that, I went and picked up Kinzi from my Mom. The living room was a mess and she was chasing Sam (my mom's poodle) everywhere. It was so cute. My baby is getting so big. She's still stuffy but I'm thinking it's allergies. Yesterday we just hung out at home together. Just me and my boogie. I cleaned out her closet and dresser and realized, she has way too many clothes. 90% of them she's only worn once or not at all! She sat in her crib and played the whole time but when I walked out of the room and came back and this is what I found...

Funny how fast she can go from this.....
 
To this. In a spit second.

I signed up for what?

Well, the guy that was supposed to run a 10k leg of the race backed out yesterday so who signed their self up? That would be this girl. All I can say is, I hope they don't expect "runner results" because that shiz aint happenin'! I will be "speed" walking a LOT! Probably more than I should. I have planned to run 3 miles in the morning at the lake. My mom is keeping Kinzi tonight so I can just run and think.

Poor Kinzi didn't sleep well last night. I had to suck her nose out twice and once when she got up this morning. For the non-mommies I'm sure that sounds appealing. She got benedryl this morning and it helped dry it up a little but now she's back to snorting. It just came to me that I might actually leave a little early today. I miss her so much today for some reason. I think it's because I won't have her tonight. I worry so so SO much about her. And today I'm worried about her a lot more than usual. Something is telling me that she's starting to get sick and I do not want that, not that anyone does. She has stayed away from the sicknesses this long, I wish it would stay that way. I'm just expecting it any time now. Poor boogie. Daddy and a lot of others may call her "Bug" but she's my Boogie Woogie. I've called her that from day one. Gah I love her!!!!

10 pounds down.

I weighed yesterday at the gym. Although I plead the 5th on what my actual weight is, I will say, I'm down 10 pounds! I know people say the number doesn't really matter but it matters to me. And, it also matters that I'm wearing a pair of jeans today that I could barely get on at Christmas. Grant it, that was over 3 months ago, it still makes me smile. And yeah, they're still snug but that's ok with me! I can button them! Also, found out today that one of the guys can't run part of the relay (the 10k part - so count me out!) so we are on the search for another 10k runner. We have one in mind, I'm just afraid they'll fall through. At least it won't be money out of my pocket.

A friends blogged about an app called Instagram - I'm in love!

The best memory I will ever have. The day I had my baby girl was the best day of my life. I'm such a proud Mommy!


This one is my favorite! Gah she's pretty!


She loves her Daddy.

There goes my life.

Love this song. Not a huge Kenny Chesney fan but it makes me think of my love!

Here I go again..

I'm probably just going to ramble but that's what I need to do...
I haven't posted in almost a week. When I wait that long, I forget certain things I wanna talk about. dangit.

Last weekend went by WAY too fast. But, they all do. It's pretty sad that I just had to look at my calendar to see what I did. Friday was my niece's (Makenna) 3rd birthday and Kinzi's 7 month birthday. People always say, "time flies." Take it with a grain of salt, but it really does! I remember when Melissa (sis in law) was in labor with Makenna. Her blood pressure was so high and we were all freaking out because her douche of a Dr wouldn't induce her, although her bp could have caused her to have a stroke. MJ was such a little bitty squirt. But didn't stay small for long. She's so tall!! On that wonderful day, April 1, 2011...my sweet Kinzi started crawling!!! I've gotta figure out how to post videos on here. She crawled for the first time, the day she was 7 months old. Now, where are those stinkin teeth?! Last night after I gave her a bath, I was dressing her and almost started crying (makes me tear up now)...she has gotten so big! Before I know it, she's going to be 3 herself.
Sunday morning, I got my jogging stroller out and was ready for a run/jog. As soon as I started, Kinzi decided she wanted to fuss. Awesome. I figured once I got going that she would stop. Wrong! So I turned around, only running .6 of a mile. Which I guess is better than nothing but isn't gonna help me come May 1st. We fed the ducks and she laughed her head off when I would throw the bread and say, "Weeeee!" She thought it was the funniest thing ever. It wasn't 5 minutes and she was fussing again. Got in the car, thought she would stop once we got going. Wrong again! She cried all the way home. Got home, she passed out. After 2 hours of sleeping, I had to wake her up (which I hate doing. She gets so mad!) because I had promised my grandma we would come visit. So we went and visited grandma. I need to go visit more, I really do! Grandma isn't always gonna be here. I feel bad I don't go see her more. Every time I go, she always has something for K, whether it's clothes or diapers or food. And she always cooks for me. It's sooooo good! There's nothing like your mom and grandma's cookin'!

Monday morning at work, we had inventory and also did some fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma. Anyone could pie a foreman in the face for $5 a pie. All the guys wanted to know why I wasn't doing it. I said, "If you pay, I'll do it!" So, I ended up getting 6 pies to the face. As much as I love whipped cream, that crap does not smell good after it sits on you for 5 hours. It smells kinda like soured milk. gag.





I have something to do every weekend for the rest of the month. Which, in a way, I kinda like. I like having plans and I like doing things. But, I think by the end of the month, I'm gonna be worn out. I'll need a break. This Saturday I have the bowling thingy for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The email said, food, prizes and tshirts! Sign me up!!! I'll take anything if it's free! Next Sat is my birfday, BIG 26! Whooop! I have a baby shower to go to that day and Sunday the 17th. The next Sunday is Easter. Then the next Sunday is the race. The closer it gets to the race, the more scared I get. I really hope I don't fall over dead and I really hope it doesn't take me an hour to get 3 miles.

Sharing is caring

First off, I would really like to know how to make a cool top picture for my blog...so if anyone knows how, please feel free to share. I thought I was pretty good with this kind of stuff but turns out, I suck.

Second, my phone is making me angrrrryyy...It won't send emails. Stupid thing.

Third, Last night we ate at Chris and Jen's. I totally ruined my awesome diet I had going on. They made Indian Taco's (with deer meat!) They never buy meat. They make everything with deer. It was the most amazing Indian Taco I've EVER eaten. Be jealous of all that oooy goooy goodness!


I'll stop counting now. The other day I bought some 90 calorie Fiber One bars. All I can say is...YUM!!!


Lots of stuff to share today. The girl that took Kinzi's 6 month pics, Misty, (visit her website HERE. She's so so so good! Love her!) is doing one of my boss's daughter's newborn shoot tomorrow (that was confusing) and she asked me if I wanted to assist her. Needless to say, of course I can't and I'm bummed about it! Not only do I wanna love all over that sweet little boy, Keller, but it made me feel special that she asked me to help her. BUT, I can't so moving on with that! Be sure to visit her website (it's still a work in progress) and give her a call!

I love love love my job! It still shocks me that after 4.5 years, I can still say that, and mean it! I love the people I work with and I love what I do. And, I love the company and it's leniency. I'm very lucky!

Me niece, Makenna Jayne, will be 3 tomorrow and Kinzi will be 7 months old! CRAZY! Time freakin flies!

Also, The Vintage Pearl (blog and website) has the cutest jewelry ever!!! They're giving away 5 - $100 Gift certificates on their blog today and I would be so excited if I won one! I've wanted the "I Love You to the Moon and back" necklace with Kinzi's name on it, for months now! I would be ecstatic to get it!!!

And, we all know I have to post a picture of my love. Little stinker cracks me up!!

Songs

I'm stealing this from a friend's blog. LOVE THIS song!

And like to run to THIS and THIS.

Pop-ular.

So, I just went through my blog and noticed I had a comment and 6 followers. I feel special! : ) I like doing this, and I like that people like to read about my simple little life.

I donated to the SIDS foundation the other day. It wasn't much but it still made me feel good. Since reading Kellie's blog (every.single.day), it has really opened my eyes to SIDS. It's so scary. I've always told Kinzi I love her, and I've always loved on her and gave her countless kisses but since reading about Maddie, that has changed. I don't think Kinzi goes 2 minutes without a kiss, a hug, or an I love you! I don't feel like I can tell her enough. I just love her so so much!! I got her 6 month pics in. I love love LOVE them! I'm so excited for family pics in May!!!
