McKenzie Fix...

She is surprisingly happy, until about 10:30 am.
At almost 22 months McKenzie is 33" Tall.

The Princess

When I told McKenzie that she had been tagged by Will- she was ecstatic!! If you don't know- McKenzie loves to talk about herself, it really is quite annoying- Kenzie this and Kenzie that...

Here are 8 things you might not know about our precious gem:

1. Shoe Fetish.
She loves to take them off and put them on. It doesn't even matter if they belong to her or not. It isn't just sometimes, it is all the time! All day long with the shoes.

2. Slides: best invention since- ever!!
Nana and Grandpa bought McKenzie a new little slide and it has become an obsession. "Kenzie, Slide, Nana's House, Rocky, Kitty, Slide, Bampa, Slide, Shoes, Slide...." You get the picture.

3. No Elmo = End of World.
Our child would marry Elmo and leave us forever if it weren't for the fact that he is famous and a puppet.

4. She can count to Thirteen!!
She skips the numbers 4 and 6, but all in good time. Thanks Elmo!

5. Mean as Hell when she is tired, hungry, or any other time she feels like it.
This is pretty much 58% of the time she is awake, 40%-happy as a clam, 2%- you don't even want to know.

6. Loves music- loves dancing- loves "singing".
I think she has a preference for country, but I'm prejudice.

7. Like EVERYONE else in my family- has a comfort food:
Cheetos, pasta, toast w/jam, candy, & "puppy's juice".

8. Can and does strap herself into the bike trailer.
Our girlie girl gets the biggest thrill out of bike rides, she even gives up precious Elmo time for it.

McKenzie would like to tag: Jack Morris, Wyatt Taylor, Tanner Swenson, & Ellie Epps.

I'm a Conformer...

Let's face it, where do I go after the Twilight Series? I'm lost. So, I've decided to make a goal, a real in-your-face goal. I'm choosing to read the top 100 novels. I did some research, because apparently there isn't some magical list written in stone that every person agrees with. Then I found this interesting nugget of bloggerness: CREATIVE VISION BLOG. I like her style and she seems to have the same goal as me! I've heard that if you write your goals down it gives them a place to take root- or some other such nonsense. (Much like Leisa, I'm also reading the books I've already read). I know this is huge, but I would love to have someone who is committed to the cause by my side- a "reading buddy". I unfortunately have to go outside of my immediate family for this. Let me know if you are interested. I will be starting at the bottom with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. P.S. I prefer someone who will be loyal/dedicated.
Thanks for your time,

The Weekend of Nothing

Now that I'm a Mom, I like Mother's Day.
This weekend: I did nothing, it was great.
Of course I had even more things to do on Monday, but
it was worth it!
Heath made me and my parents the nicest brunch, EVER.

I was at page 530; I couldn't read anymore. Do I sound over-dramatic? It was so close to the end, how could I finish? I've slept, ate, and breathed Bella and Edward (and Jacob) for an entire week...What can I say, it's very dramatic. Indeed. I succumbed to my desires and ended it. Now I'm just like the rest of you- waiting. Why didn't anyone warn me? Some friends you turned out to be.

I'm out of control

I have to take a break, I need to breathe. I almost don't want to finish the last one, I don't want it to end!! I wasn't as impressed with this one as the first- you were right Becky. However, I read it just as quickly. I devoured it. If the book had been a full cheesecake I'd weigh at least 20 pounds more today. P.S. Jacob is cuter.

I can have alcohol, prescription drugs (the good stuff), and cough syrup in my house for months and never once think about them. I thought this meant that I don't have an addictive personality- I was wrong. I started Twilight on Mon. night @ 9:00 pm and finished it this morning @ 1:00 am. I put my marriage in jeopardy, my job in jeopardy, hell- even McKenzie had to feed and put herself to sleep. I told Heath that he has two options: 1.) Find and buy New Moon and Eclipse and bring them home with him today 2.) Don't come home. I'm feeling secure that he will choose the right one. Nothing will or ever can replace my beloved "Little Women", however this is a very,very close second. No MAN could have ever written this book.

A Little Leg...

Anniversary Weekend
Thanks to all of the following contributors:
1. My Parents
(for being the best babysitters ever!!)
(for being the second best babysitter ever!!)
3. Hilton Garden INN
(for providing the luxurious suite, which I never left and spent most of my time reading, by the way I finished my current book -see below- now I can start Twilight)
(our Saturday night entertainment, the flying monkey was hilarious, everyone else was so-so and yet I had an extremely good time)
5. Sam Pan
6. The Pie Pizzeria
(if you've never been there- probably just as well I'm fairly certain the treatment facility for people addicted to this place is currently booked up)
7. The Gateway
(there are some pretty interesting characters there on Sundays)
8. My Husband
(you know)
Thanks but no thanks to:
1. Applebee's
(I don't think I will ever eat there again, ever)
2. Tai Le
(I enjoyed sitting around for way too long- that "guy" missed out on tattooing the most beautiful girl in the world)

The Thirteenth Tale

Twinness: an interesting subject. I never really thought about what it must be like to be a twin. Identical- to have someone who looks like you. Everyone thinks they are ugly or fat at some point in their life but, do you feel the same way when your sister is exactly like you? Is there a difference? Like I said, interesting. I never really identified with any of the characters and I really liked it!! Good book (if you have the time) not a MUST read.
