March 26th....Our Anniversary

Our anniversary has come and gone this year. Just like last year we spent it apart and in different time zones.

I am really hoping next year we can celebrate together. My wonderful husband bought me the most beautiful bouquet of fruit. He sent flowers a couple of weeks ago and as much as flowers are nice they do die. With our anniversary coming up I told him how nice it would be to have some fruit that the boys and I could eat. Boy my husband sure listens good, and the boys and I were in love.



Thanks hunny, I loved the fruit. I also love you more with each passing day. Stay safe and hurry home.

My sister is off the market.



Shannon had a big month this year. On the third she celebrated her 28th birthday and then on the 21st she got married.

I have not been very good at blogging recently I have just been so sick this past week. I wish I would have been able to travel back to New Mexico for the wedding but at 8 months pregnant the docs and airlines frown upon it.

I have heard that everyone had a great time and the weather was awesome. It was an outdoor ceremony and the news said there was a possibility of rain. No rain in sight and the weather turned out to be perfect. Yeah!

They leave to Hawaii for their honeymoon in just a few short days, boy do I wish I was going off to a tropical island. Well, not sure anyone else would want to see my pregnant belly in a swimsuit but it sure sounds nice.

Congratulations Ryan and Shannon!! May you learn to love all the good days and to work hard to get through the tough ones. There is a lot of give and take and no matter what anyone says NO marriage is ever perfect.

Have a great honeymoon. Can't wait to see all the pics when you get back.

I was trying to wait until the professional photographer had his pictures up on his website but maybe he is not feeling well either because he is taking his time. Here is a photo so that you can see a little of Shannon and my new brother-in-law Ryan.


Wouldn't you know as soon as I posted this I get the good photos. So here are a few.

What would you do?

If you saw a pregnant lady with 7 bags of groceries on one arm and with the other hand wheeling her trash container from the curb up to the side of the house what would you do?

A. Say "Here let me help." Knowing she probably doesn't really need it or would never ask for help, even though you really don't want to be a good neighbor and offer help you do it out of common courtesy.

B. Say "You sure like doing a million things at once, have a good evening."

Monster Truck Show




I took the boys to a monster truck show last night and they had a blast. We got to the stadium at about 5:30 and the boys were in bed by 11. It was a very long night for us.



They were offering monster truck rides at 8 dollars a pop so I sat back and let the boys ride by themselves. They had so much fun they wanted to do it again, but at that price and the long line I told them NO WAY!








Me and my very pregnant belly pushed a guy out of the way to catch a t-shirt. They were throwing them out and him and I went head to head to get this shirt. We both jumped up and reached for it and it hit our finger tips. It dropped a few stairs down and I pushed him out of the way to run down the stairs to grab it. Once I got the shirt and started walking up the stairs back to my seat I though "Dawn, what in the hell were you thinking? You are 8 months pregnant." I think it's just the competitive person that I am. I sometimes do without thinking. Bryson and Carter were so proud of me and the guy was a little embarrassed he got schooled by a pregnant lady. He didn't realize I was pregnant until afterwards. Bryson also got a hat.




We snuck in drinks and candy so we didn't buy any junk food there and I avoided the merchandise stands so I didn't have to buy anything there either. I have gotten a bit smarter with all the shows and events we have gone to. I don't mind buying some toys and shirts, but wasn't going to buy the monster truck stuff.





Overall it was a goodnight and I am glad they only come once a year.

A story about a little boy and a famous restaurant

Once upon two days ago there was a three year old little boy named Carter. He so desperately wanted to eat Olive Garden for dinner. His mother told him that they couldn't eat there because his brother had a rough day at school. She went on to say "That they couldn't go out to eat because going out to eat was special and that if you get in trouble at school then you don't deserve to eat somewhere special."

Carter replied back with a serious look "Well me and you can eat at Olive Garden and Bryson can sit there and watch!"

The mother trying to hold a straight face said that if Bryson was good at school the following day they would go to Olive Garden for dinner the next night.

When it was time for lunch the next day the mom asked Carter what he wanted for lunch and Carter said that he wanted Olive Garden. The mom reminded Carter that they would be eating dinner there. Carter wasn't satisfied and said that they could eat Olive Garden for lunch and dinner. The mom told him no but that he could have a lunchable for lunch. Carter was very happy about that.

When it was time to get Bryson from school Carter was so excited. He ran right up to Bryson and asked him if he had a good day. The teacher jumped up for joy and said "Bryson had a wonderful day and that he made good choices and that he was awesome!"

Carter was so excited and couldn't wait for dinner. Before the restaurant the mom had to drop off her sewing machine to get fixed and Carter fell asleep. He slept for about twenty minutes in the car and when they pulled up to Olive Garden the mom carried Carter in.

The mom asked Carter if he was feeling alright and he said he was tired. The mom ordered the food and drinks and then asked Carter if he needed to throw up. Carter said yes, so off to the bathroom they go.

Carter gets sick and the family have their food boxed up and head home.

Poor Carter didn't even get to taste any of his Olive Garden that he so desperately wanted for two days.

The mom and older brother ate their soggy salad and cold bread sticks at home.

The End!

Not Me Monday

It's time again for


I absolutely DID NOT lie to Bryson and tell him all the brownies were gone just so that I could have the last one. After all we teach our kids to not lie so I would never lie in front of them, or better yet to them.

I WAS NOT relieved to find out the reason Bryson was in trouble one day at school this last week. Because when the teacher has to talk to you about your son's behavior it's usually never good. SIDE NOTE: Bryson is reading at such a high level after he was done with all his paper work he was suppose to read special books of a higher level and he decided to roll around on the carpet and rough house with one of his pals. They both got in trouble.

After said behavior I DID NOT reward him by letting him play with the Wii when he got home. Though I did ground him from his DS ;)

Head on over to My Charming Kids.

Guess what next month is?


I am officially having this baby next month. Now when someone asks when are you due I can proudly say next month with a smile on my face. The time is just flying buy and I am still trying to get the baby's room ready, but even more importantly still trying to find a name for this little boy.

His kicks and moves are a little painful at times. He is a strong little boy, I believe the placenta lies on the left of my belly as most of his movements are on the right side or lower left side. I want to say he is lying caddy corner in my belly. It's hard to remember where I felt Bryson and Carter so I am glad I am writing this down.

I still feel great and the boys love to remind me everyday that...well this is how they put it (while both laughing) "Mom, your belly sure is getting big." or "Mom, how much bigger is your belly going to get? This big?" (while holding their arms stretched out) I usually laugh with them and tell them probably!

I will take my comparison photo on the fifth so be watching for that.
