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.

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 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 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, 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.
