Have you?

seen Eclipse yet? I haven't been I will be. Soon.
Lance asked me yesterday, while we were painting, if I was stuck on a desert island with just one person who would I want it to be?
I thought for a minute as the usual Matthew McConghuey, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Curtis Stone run through my head. But then it came to me....
Taylor Lautner I yelled!
Oops, that was probably with a little too much enthusiasm for my husband! ~blush~ tee hee
He asked why him?
I said because then it didn't matter what we did on the island. We stuck there so I wouldn't go to jail for having my way with him! Ha!
He looked at me, sighed then said he's 18 now.
I pondered this for 1/2 a second and said my answer still stands and now I'm not even illegal!! Just a dirty old woman;)
I mean really..... look at him....
I don't think Lance will be asking me anymore of those questions:) Ha!

Ipod headphones/ear thingies?

So what type of headphones/ear listen thingies do you have for your Ipod? Mine are just the ones that came with my Ipod. They are not very comfortable:/ Any suggestions? If they would happen to come in the color purple too, I would be in total LOVE!!!


My ears thank you too!

All healthy and doing well:)

Miss Thang has completely recovered from Roseola and is feeling great again. We had her 1 yr appt on thursday. She grew another 2 inches but only gained 1/2 a pound which puts her at 17.5 lbs. This was completely ok since she's running around most of the time. The pediatrician said M has the motorskills of a 15-18 month old:) She (the Dr) was VERY impressed with Miss Thang. Of course, she's seen her since 3 days old so she's use to her skills and entertainment! M did pretty well with the shots and finger poke. Such a big girl!

I went scrapping with the girls on Friday. I was able to get my Ail Edwards "A Week in the Life of the Haugens" album all put together except for the journaling. I'm pretty happy about that. It's always nice to get some creative time in. I did clean up my scraproom last week. It's not perfect yet, but at least I can fit more than 1 person in there now. It was SO bad. I'm hoping to finish that up on Tues or Thurs of this week while M is at daycare. I do need to buckle down and get my online class set up and ready to go since we start the summer quarter next Tues.

That's about it for now:) I'm hoping we can get out to the lake soon as mommy needs to get her tan on before the summer is over:/ EEK!!

Now a rash...

So M's fever broke last night/this morning but then she developed a rash on her chest, torso and back. WTH?? Thank goodness it was Gina to the rescue!! She said to watch out for Roseola as both her kids had it around M's age. Sure enough. I read up on it and that sounds exactly like what M has/had. She had a more mild version of it since she had a low grade fever followed by the rash. She's feeling better, not as lethargic and crabby but still not quite the same. Hopefully by tomorrow or Wed. Poor Miss Thang!

Other than that, I finally got my flowers planted. They look very nice:) I'm hoping, if M feels better tomorrow and she goes to daycare, to get M's new playroom primed then painted eventually. Along with my cleaning and organizing my scraproom which is a disaster area. I really should take before and after pics. Eek. Maybe. It's THAT bad!

I also have to confess. I am officially addicted to The Real Housewives of New Jersey!! Those women crack me up! Love it/them!!!

Our 1st visit to the walk-in clinic.

So M hadn't gotten any better this morning. She was lethargic, clingy and generally unhappy. I went to change her from her jammies to a tshirt and shorts and she freaked out when I pulled her shirt off/over her ears so I thought maybe it's an ear infection. So in we went to the peds walk-in clinic, after I checked the waiting time (0-15 mins!). We were in and out in 30 mins. No ear infection, no strep (at least the rapid was negative), so the Dr. is assuming a virus and we're just suppose to watch her. We have M's 1 yr appt this Thurs with her normal Dr so if M is still running a low grade fever then she will do more tests. Since then, M's fever seems to have broke but she's still very crabby. I'm hoping the end is in sight, poor thing. She would not nap so we threw her in the car and drove around the lakes area looking at lake homes. We found a couple for sale that we'd like to check out more closely. Gotta love online home shopping! We also hit Zorbaz all while M slept so we all got what we wanted!!!
Happy Father's Day to Lance and all the dads out there! Hope it was a great one:)

Sick girl.

Miss Thang is feeling a little down and out. She has a low grade fever and just not her normal self. If she's not better by tomorrow, I'm hauling her into the walk in clinic. Poor thing:(

Oh better news, my horse (faith) is KICKING major BUTT!! She and Chad (the trainer) were the Circuit Champions at the Cap Gun show in WI this weekend!!! There was some major competition out there so that is a pretty big feat! I wasn't able to be out there due to work commitments. Dang work:/ Faith and I did awesome in Nebraska last week. So did Chad and Faith. I'm so proud of Faith!! She's really doing better than ever:)

I'm going through a major creative juice overflow.... I REALLY need to scrap! The only problem being is that my scraproom is a disaster area!! I can't even SEE my desk much less be able to work on it. I need to clean but I don't have the energy to tackle it. Lame excuse, I know but its the truth. Now that I'm on a 2 week break from school, that is my job along with painting and decorating M's play room.

Oh, I almost forgot about M's 1 year pics!!! Here's the link. The password is mhoneyear
They all turned out so well... I can see its going to cost us a fortune for all the pics we like! Oh well, its better than not liking any:)

Miss Thang is taking over the world!

Or at least the airways! She made her 1st plane adventure with Lance to come visit me in Lincoln, NE while I was showing my horse. It was a very interesting flight for them and that had NOTHING to do with Miss M! Their plane was struck by lightning on the way to Lincoln!! Nothing went wrong but they did have to turn around and go back to MN as a precaution. Yikes!! I guess M was an awesome flyer! No crying or screaming, just a lot of smiling and waving at the fellow passengers which was a big hit with everyone! She's such a charmer!

She's also officially weaned! Yay!! (especially for momma!!) It was actually pretty easy so we were both lucky there!

I have lots of other stuff to talk about including my horse show in NE and M's 1 year pics but I'm tired! I'm going to bed so more tomorrow!!

Tomorrow is the BIG day plus 300 posts!

1 year ago tomorrow I was going through back labor for 16 hours all to be blessed with a beautiful baby girl (and epidural!!!). What a difference 1 year makes! I just got done making her cake. I tried my hand with fondant. It really wasn't too bad. The cake is not what I had intended to do at first but it turned out pretty cute. It was A LOT of work. Really too much work for it not being very intricate but oh well. Miss Thang only turns 1 once!!

This is also my 300th post!! YAY!! I am going to make a better effort to post more often and have more substance in my posts. Be on the look out for LOADS of pics from tomorrow's festivities! Can't wait:)
