Ten on Tuesday

Here we go again...

1) I am a reality tv junkie- shows that I love are Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, 16 and Pregnant, SYTYCD, Americas Next Top Model, Jersylicious,The Bachelor/Bachelorette...I know, I know

2) I can not go to bed without checking on both of my kids and kissing them goodnight

3) I am addicted to chapstick/aquafor

4) The hardest meal for me to eat on this diet is the first one of the day...8 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 1 grapefruit, 1.33 cups spiach, 12 almonds. Its a lot of food!

5) Our dog, Lucy, is the best bread of dog I have ever known. King Charles Cavalier

6) I am struggling with Izaiah at this age (and the age before this) We are starting another sticker chart. I am going to focus more on the possitive this time and see if that helps. His ultimate goal is to earn a bike. He has a long way to go :)

7) I really want to cut my hair (and have wanted to for a really long time) into a mohawk. Joe has botched the idea, until now. We saw the cutest girl with a really classy mohawk (is that an oxymoron?)-he said he would be ok with it. Now just to loose the weight I want to have the confidence I need for that kind of haircut

8) I never thought I would, but I drive a minivan. Its awesome

9) I love playing Words With Friends

10) Joe converted me to sleeping with a fan, now I can not sleep without one

I saw this on my cousin, Whitney's, blog and thought it was a great idea. Just 10 random things or thoughts every Tuesday. So, a day late-here you go.

1. I committed to a "Figure" Show. I will be dieting and working out for it for a total of 16 weeks. Its VERY strict and a lot of dedication. I wanted to do something to push myself more than I ever have. To prove that mentally I am strong.I am 2 weeks in and have not cheated once! In the end I will get up on stage (I am doing the show as my accountabibility to not cheat) in a bikini (yea..I know scary) and get up in front of judges. I am gonna start a blog soon with pics and all that goes into this show. Wish me luck, I am gonna need it!

2. Indie loves the word "NO" she says it all the time, and I am really not sure how to get her to stop. Any suggestions?

3. We are settled into our new place. Only problem, we still feel so out of place. All our friends are up in our old ward-doin their thing. And we have yet to make a friend in our new ward. Kinda sucks

4. Joe and I were called into Nursery...enough said

5. Joe is loving and doing amazing in his nursing program. A's in his last two classes, and an A on his last test for this class. We are very excited and proud of him

6. Izaiah just finished swim lessons. He did so well, and loves showing off his new swimming skills

7. I love the 4th of July, I bought an outfit for Indie far in advance. The East Millcreek parade never disapoints!! I love all the festivities that will be going on

8. I have sleep issues and the only way I sleep well is by taking Unisom-I need to stop

9. We are taking part of a 30 Day Family Temple attendance with Joe's family. It for Joe's sick younger sister. My day is Thursday, it will be nice to get to the temple that much this next month.

10. I am very thankful for my sister, Melissa, who watches my kids every Wednesday so I can work. She loves them so much and they LOVE her. I am so grateful to have her around.

Ten things to say is a lot harder than I thought. I will do better next week

So much

We have been doing so much lately I dont even know if anyone looks at this...but I thought I would post a bunch of pics to try to get caught up. This will be the first of 2 or 3 blogs of all our adventures lately....

Joe graduated Utah State!! Horray, he is now in a nursing program. He did so well in school this last year. His brother Lance, and our brother in law, Marshall also graduated the same time. Goooo Aggies

Izaiah turned 4 (which should be a post all on its own) we went to a bounce house with our little fam, and grandma. Indie and Izaiah had so much fun.

Izaiah Graduated his first year of preschool

Izaiah played in his very first soccer team...THE RAPTORS

Izaiah's Tron Birthday Party! Tron birthday cake, disk battles and super hero dress up

More posts to come...

18 Months

Little Ms. Indie is 18 Months..Just thought it would be fun to list a bunch of facts about her
*She has fangs...full on white trash/vampire style fangs-that and two bottom teeth.
*She has just figured out that I am "MA" and says, ok more yells, it over and over for all of her needs and wants
*She is very fiesty
*She loves books
*She loves Izaiah! And wants to do everything with him
*Her hair has come in curly and I LOVE it
*She has tiny yet chubby feet. Size 3's but the fat on the top hangs out of all her shoes
*Is soooo messy. All day long, she spreads toys from one end of the house to the other. I swear all we do is pick up after her
*Still a very good sleeper. Takes 2-3 hour naps and sleeps from 8pm to 9-10am
*She has gone to nursery once, and did really well. Went right in with only a little fuss (thank goodness)
*Loves animals and music
*Is very crazy in the bath-you would think she was trying to drown herself. No fear at all in the bath
*Is chubby;weighing in at 27 lbs
*Loves her blankies...a little to much
*Is so happy and animated
*Says dada, mom, Izaiah, Dog, Grandpa, Grandma, ball, bubble, baby, mine, Lucy
Here are some more recent pictures of Indie!!
