the hunger rears its ugly head. again.

My cute sister-in-law is very pregnant, and her baby shower is around the corner. Thus, I started the task of shopping for her future baby girl. Which quickly turned into shopping for my non-existent baby girl.

What I need to know is, how weird is it that, with no baby in sight, I would very much like to purchase thousands of dollars worth, just a few things here and there for myself? On a scale of 1 to crazy baby lady?

But I mean, come on, just look at these things

Are you kidding me? How am I expected to resist this?
The ratio of influence between baby hunger and my little addiction to online shopping at Nordstrom is yet to be determined. But I think it's safe to say none of the above is healthy.


more magic? YES!

Sometimes I have these moments of pure inspiration where I decided I should document a moment in film.
Especially after my previous video of Zane doing magic became such a sensation.

Unfortunately, my little inspiration did not include realizing I should spit out my gum, or at least close my mouth.
Zane said on a scale from 1-10, my gum smacking was only a 5.
I'm afraid it's an 8, and by bringing it to your attention, I think you'll agree with me on this one.
And I'm so sorry. 


confession session

 - I signed up to run a 5k with my sister in October. I know it seems that anyone could run 3.1 miles, in fact, two ladies well into their 50's on the treadmills next to me seemed to do it rather effortlessly,  but I'm not feeling very confident.

- I flip bad drivers off on a regular basis. But only when I'm by myself, and I make sure no one but me sees it. Pointless? basically.

- I will take the stairs, or pretend I need to use the restroom, to avoid riding the elevator with someone. anyone. It's just how Taylor describes it.

- I created a Twitter account solely to follow Miley Cyrus. I am currently fascinated, to say the least.

Glad I got that off my chest.


thats sooo looserly

Why do I think this is hilarious? And why has my blog turned into video's I like from YouTube?


smarty pants dance

Sometimes Zane and I have a hard time agreeing on what to watch.
When I say, "you choose", it always ends with Zane finding himself some science-fiction movie involving aliens, or time travel, and me eating my words.

It is in those moments of disagreement, we settle on America's Funniest Home Videos. Even though I am fairly certain Tom Bergeron is a closet pervert, and everything he does makes me cringe, the actual videos are pretty hilarious.

This was my favorite video we saw last night.

My child will know the 50 states by age 2, and she will have an adorable victory dance.


special days

Since beginning working full time, at the crack of dawn, weekends have become especially special to me.
Saturday, and Sunday, mornings when my body naturally wakes up around 7, and I realize I may sleep as long as I please, I can only explain as pure joy. 
And the time not spent sleeping, is spent finding fun things to fill our day. 

Labor Day weekend was filled with Swiss Days and Sheep Dogs. 

Saturday was spent with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. 
We shopped, ate, gabbed, and sang a few songs from The Sound Of Music soundtrack. Weird since that was set it Austria, and we were supposed to be celebrating the Swiss. But no matter, I'm sure rain drops on roses, and whiskers on kittens make the swiss happy too. 

It was a perfect girls day, minus the fact that the right side of my hair decided it wanted to be straight and the left wanted to be curled. rough. 

Monday was spent at the Sheep Dog Championship at Solider Hollow. 
This was my brilliant idea, and I got Zane and my in-laws to jump on board with me. I am currently going through an animal obsession phase, for the last 20 years. 
It was such a fun atmosphere. I love my fellow dog lovers, they're the friendliest of people. 
The Splash Dogs were my favorite part. Zane and I have officially decided our future puppy will be a Splash Dog. Here's hoping that puppy is here sooner rather than later. 

The weekend was well worth the farmers tan, and peeling that followed. 

It's a little late, but I hope everyone enjoyed their labor day weekend!
