Odds & Ends

It's been a little while since I blogged, so I thought I'd catch you all up on some things that have been going on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I survived my plane ride to Missouri and FINALLY got to meet my wonderful friend Jess. Bryan asked if I was nervous to spend 4 days with someone I didn't know. I wasn't nervous even for a second. Even though I'd never met Jess I feel like we've been friends for years. The first time we talked on the phone we talked non-stop for over an hour. There are very few people in this world who actually get me, Jess gets me.

I had a blast with her. Her boys are absolutely adorable and her husband is not an axe murder (big relief for Bryan of course). We went to the Zoo at Forest Park and I still can't believe that the zoo was FREE! She treated me to my very first pedicure. Yes, I know, 29 years old and never had a pedicure, what a travesty! We walked around Main Street in St. Charles and had lunch in the cutest little outdoor cafe. The majority of the time we talked and talked, drank some wine and talked some more. Hopefully I didn't talk her ear off too bad. I have a tendency to never know when to stop talking. I had such a great time it was the perfect vacation from my life...thanks a million Jess ;)

Justin has turned into a cyclone. The other day while I was getting the kids dinner ready we heard a scream from the bathroom, followed by some banging on the door. A quick head count we noticed we were missing Justin. Bryan went and opened the door and I hear, "Water day Daddy!" Justin had shoved the entire roll of toilet paper into the toilet and then flushed it. There was water everywhere. It was not a pretty sight.

He followed that trick up later in the night by coloring all over the couch and ottoman with a pink and purple crayon. Love it!

Dylan has turned into a high school freshmen over night. That girl has a serious attitude problem lately. Her new favorite thing is to tell everybody that they are ugly whenever she's mad at them. I'm so sick of her attitude and back talk that I'm tempted to lock her in her room until she's 30. Well maybe not 30...25 might do the trick.

I'm so glad that Summer is finally over. Although somebody needs to send Mother Nature a calendar and inform her that Summer is over. 97 degrees does not equal Autumn weather.

In celebration of it now being Autumn, I put up my Halloween decorations yesterday. I LOVE HALLOWEEN. Next to Christmas it is my favorite holiday. I'm the first one in my neighborhood to have my decorations up....yes I win! Take that suckers!

As I'm sitting here typing this I'm also watching the Green Bay Tampa Bay game and have found a new man to drool over. Aaron Rodgers is hot! There's something about sweaty hot quarterbacks that gets my old heart ticking! Don't worry Christian Bale, you'll always be first in my heart.

I'm so glad that you had as much fun as I did! I am SO glad that you came!

I know that Justin throwing things in the toilet isn't supposed to be funny, but I am dying here! Good times, huh?!
