Poor Rick and Brynlee...they have both been sick today. Rick had a dizzy spell and actually fainted, and Bryn has pink eye, possibly. I will be taking her to the doctors tomorrow to get the eye checked out. Rick has been taking it easy all day, ya know, playing rock band. He has been sitting/laying on the couch instead of standing and rocking out. He has had a caugh all week and a soar throat. Hopefully he is on the mend. I had the freaking stomache flu last week. So we have all taken our turn of being under the weather.

Rock Band

Brynlee, not to be outdone by herself with "shower handstands", has taken an interest in playing the guitar on Rock Band. She started off with the practice mode at a reduced speed setting and now she can play at full speed.

See results here:








Brynlee loves to perform





On a more boring note I was able to achieve 100% on Expert Drum. :) I owe the achievement to the new Drum Rocker Set.

Here are a few of my weaknesses. I hardly eat and drink these few items, but when I do, I find it a struggle to just "sample". My favorite potato chip is Lays Sea Salt & Vinegar, drink, Dr. Pepper, and candy, See's Butter Scotch Square. Oh those darn chocolates just melt away in my mouth. I HIGHLY recommend these these 3 items!!

This morning I woke up hyper, yet again. I put on this outfit purposely. Notice that I am wearing a pink fuscia with red, and then a torquise necklace that cannot be seen in this picture. I was laughing and giggling and then came into the office where Rick was and showed him what I was laughing at. Of course Rick didn't get a kick out of it like I apparently did. Rick and I were getting ready to go grocery shopping and so I am laughing at the whole idea of the outfit and then Rick having to be seen with someone who totally is mis-matching. Anyhow, here is Rick and I. I LOVE to try and get Rick to laugh at all the many odd things that I laugh at throughout the day.

About a week ago, Bryn came home with a homework assignment. Actually, it may have been 2 weeks ago. Needless to say, here we are, the day before it is due. It is a really good thing that Grandma Jolene is in town. The 3 of us started on the poster at 3:00 pm, and the 3 of us just finished the "100 Things" poster at 9:30 pm. What a team we are!! Thank you Grandma Jolene.

Happy Birthday to Me!!







I turned 31 this year! HOLY COW!! My day was awesome. I woke up hyper and excited to celebrate. Before Bryn headed off to school we took this picture together. She told me "You are the silliest mom ever today!!" After dropping her off at school, my dad took me to breakfast. I spent the whole day with him. He ran errands with me, went shopping, and didn't even complain once! After picking Bryn up from school, the 3 of us went to the new PG rec and walked the track. Then the 3 of us came home and my dad got a hair cut and a nose wax! That is right. A NOSE WAX. If you have not had your nose waxed, I highly recommend this. Despite what you may think of the pain, you will be pleasantly surprised. My neighbor Steve came and got his hair cut and colored. My mother-in-law flew into town. At 7pm my family came over for some yummy Costco cake that I have been craving. My day was a great day! I LOVED every part of my day. Even the turning 31 part. Thank you to everyone who made my day special!!

So I got tagged with 6 random things about me......

#1-I am not a very anal person, but when it come to loading the dishwasher, I do appreciate organization. When it comes to the silverware, this is when I get real anal. I like all of the different groups to stay with their groups.

#2- I LOVE doing laundry. I LOVE the fresh scent of the clothes and LOVE the warmth of clothes. I LOVE the look of the clothes too.

#3-I LOVE the number 3. Maybe it is because I was born on the 3rd. Whatever it is, 3 has always been my favorite and lucky number.

#4-I LOVE going to the dentist. I used to freak out and get really nervous and anxious when I would have dentist appointments, but now I LOVE going.

#5-I LOVE to people watch. People are so entertaining to me.

#6-I can't sit at the computer longer than 20 minutes. I get ancy and my back starts to ache. So I am signing off b/c I have hit the 20 minute limit.

I tag anyone who would like to get tagged!!

This is Rick cooking our breakfast burrito's this morning. Boy were they yummy!! I am not the nicest wife...I woke up from my late night with Tammy, and walked into the kitchen, not feeling like making breakfast. Rick comes in, grabs for the cereal in the pantry, pours himself a bowl, and out of my mouth comes "Oh, you're not making eggs for us this morning?" Feeling like, Hey! I send you and Bryn off EVERY morning with waffles, or pancakes, or oatmeal. I felt like taking a break today attitude. I walk into the bedrooms to put the clothes into the drawers, and back into the kitchen to start on breakfast and BAM! Rick is pulling all the fixings out of the fridge and right on it making our breakfast burrito's. What a nice husband.



Last night I was a "Groupie" with my friend Tammy and her entire family. We all went to Velour, a chic club down in Provo where bands get together and play their music to the crowd. Tammy's nephews, Kyle and Trevor, released their first album last night. We all went to support them, cheer them on, listen to their style of music, and enjoy the college dating, hangout atmosphere. I am not too familiar with what category their music would be listed under. The music sounded very similar to the"Once" soundtrack. Their band name is "Desert Noises". I did purchase their cd, and I am really enjoying their sound and what they produce. They blow me away with how young and talented they are. Let me know if you would like a copy.
