I'm a blog thief....

So I'm not the best at coming up with interesting things to blog about, and right now my life is pretty boring...stressful, yet not too different day by day to come up with something new to entertain you 2 or 3 people that read my blogs. How you all got sooo many followers is beyond me, but maybe it's a sign I'm not a good blogger.... anyway, when I was reading Devin's random post it was interesting and neat to read things you don't  really know about someone. Some you may know, but for the most part it's cool to read those, so I'm stealing your blog idea Devin....

RANDOM things, ideas and facts....about ME:

1. I can not sit on a public bathroom toliet seat. If there are not those seat covers I take toliet paper and make my own, or I pop and squat...which really works your thigh muscles...

2. I want 4 kids...hopefully the next one will be a boy, 2 girls 2 boys will be the best !

3. I ,like you Devin, am a tummy sleeper, and it was sooo annoying when pregnant when I couldn't sleep on my tummy.

4. I broke my pinker finger, and had surgery on it only to now not be able to straighten all. My husband makes fun of me because of it.

5. I'm a picky eater.

6. I love sweets, just about any kind of candy, and I will eat it and most likely not have leftovers.

7. I'm afraid of heights, and cried once when I took a mission trip to colorado and had to go to the freaked me out.

8. I had "pica" when I was pregnant with all 3 of my kids. I craved gravel dust with Juliana, cooking flour, and chalk (which I only licked) with Bredun, and sharpies, and laundry detergent with Kiya.

9. I was in labor for very short periods of times with my kids. 4 hours labor 10min pushing with Juliana, 7 hours labor, 5 min pushing with Bredun, and Kiya was 45 min of labor, and like 2 min of pushing, I'm scared for what the next one will be like.

10. I went to state in Track for the 200 meter and long jump when I was a freshman in HS and in the 4x4 relay my sophmore year. Don't ask me to race you now....

11. I was a cheerleader captain in HS.

12. I went to Veracruz, Mexico to play basketball....It was the best, I miss being able to play so good.

13. I want a house next year.

14. I won 1st place in a drama team competition in a skit with 2 other girls where my sister Beckie rewrote a skit to go along the lines of "The Brady Bunch." I was Cindy, my piggy tails and lisp was the best.

15.I like strange combinations of food, such as, popcorn dipped in nacho cheese, macaroni and cheese mixed with corn, peanut butter on toast with scrambled eggs on top.

16. I sucked my thumb until I was 5

17. It grosses me out when I sit in a seat at a public place and the seat is warm...there are only two ways the seat could have gotten that farted on it, or you were sitting there waayyy too long, either way, it grosses me out.

18. I was born a red head....then my hair fell out when I was 2 and grew back blonde.

19. I had my tonsils take out at age 12.

20. It really annoys me when people eat with their mouths open or chomp their really annoying.

21. I have the wierdest Aunt ever....OH you want examples...OK! If you come visit her, don't be there longer than a day, because she will give you 1 plate, 1 cup, 1 set of silverware and make you use the same set the whole time you're there. Don't eat pancakes or waffles with syrup with her, if you want more syrup and someone else has some on their plate, she'll scrape their leftover syrup onto your waffles. she saves used tape on the side of her refrigerator......just some examples.

22. I want a boob job....why?....babies....that's all I'm saying. :)

23. I have never been in a car accident *knock on wood*

24.I have broken my ankle 2 times, one from basketball, the other because of a little girl that got off the school bus too slowly and I wasn't paying attention and that last step off the bus to the ground is far when you're little, and well I broke it...stupid little girl.

25. I want to go to cosmetology school one day....hopefully soon, if its in Gods plans, I'm on my knees and crossing my fingers it will come together.

WOW, that was probably the longest blog ever. Hope you enjoyed it, learned some new things about me, and still will continue to be my friend. I don't think there's too many wierd, crazy, scary things in there. If there are any blog suggestions for the future let me know! And how do you all get so many followers?? I don't want my blog to be pointless....

It's been a while....

Wow it's been a while since I've blogged. It's been the same routine day after day. Work, kids, gym, kids, bed. So it didn't seem like much was going on, and now it's just kids, gym, kids, bed....yeah no more work. Not by my choice, but I was wanting out anyway.....just not wanting the transition between the new job being no job at all. I won't go into details on what happened except for the fact that it's kind of a sigh of relief to be out of Bank of America. Sooo much negativity going on, making everyone not so fun to be around. I loved the people I worked with, but there was still so much negativity with the bank and since I was already looking for a new job, it was kind of crazy that I was let go when I was. An honest mistake turned into something that I wanted buuuttt didn't want until I had something else lined up. ohhh well what can you do, God has a reason for everything. I don't know if it was to tell me that I should have been thankful for having SOMETHING, or telling me that he has something else way better stored for me. Only time will tell. In the meantime I get to stay home with my kiddos, and I love that. It's like maternity leave all over again! But do pray that I find something soon, we will need that income. Ok Kiya apparently isn't wanting me to blog anymore cause she's being fussy and not stopping. Until next time....

Crazy times makes for a crazy life!

Oh man ever since I've gone back to work it seems like this blog and my facebook stalking, I mean reading, has gone to a bare minimum. I haven't blogged in a while, and really there isn't too much of excitement to blog about, but it's been crazy. We'll start with the kids first...

Juliana has been going to gymnastics and had started in October (?), and her last class was in December, we decided she loved it so much and was doing good, that she's now enrolled for the next season which starts today (although I'm not sure they'll have class due to the weather), and will go until May. It gives her some social interaction with little kids and she's always wanting me to play teacher with her and tell her what to show her, which is a good practice for her. I remember being in gymnastics when I was little and I loved it so it's good that she can show the same desire. She'll start school in May of this year, and that just seems so crazy to me! She's growing up way too fast. She's mommy's little best friend and will use that against me when she wants to do something..."but Mom that's what best friends do.." I love how much she shows how she loves for her family. Always wanting to give Bredun and Kiya kisses and hugs, and take care of them. Sometimes too much, but it's still is amazing to see love for each other. I love my little mini me.

Bredun is a wild man. He's definitly our dare devil child. He will try to climb up on anything and use anything to get up there. Toys, shoes, boxes, someones doesn't matter, he'll use it to get where he wants. Sometimes he'll get on the coffee table and once he's been caught and you go to get him he'll just jump to you without you knowing it. Scary at times, but that kid has hit his head so many times, he's going to be one rough little man. I love him so much, and love seeing him grow and start to understand more each day.

Kiya had her 2 month check up a couple of weeks ago and was 9 lbs, and I can't remember the length. She's still a little skinny minny, but has those chubby cheeks. I love kissing them. She's starting to "talk" a lot more when you talk to her, not so much on her own yet, and smiles sooo much. I love seeing her little mouth get the biggest wide open grin! It makes me want to kiss her all over. I love getting to come home from work and holding her, giving kisses, and just telling her how much I love her.

Taurus and I aren't doing much of anything. It's pretty much work, nap, watch the kids, sleep....repeat for him. He's been doing night stock (10pm-6am) since October, and really likes the people he works with and for the most part what he does. I think the hours and watching the kids can get to him and his body a lot, but he handles it pretty good for the most part, and he does it for his family so we're hoping one day it may not have to be like that. The kids grow up so fast, so we know it won't be this hard forever, but for now it's tough on his body.  I'm still at Bank of America, and have applied to be a customer service manager over at another new Hy-Vee that will be opening in March. I think I'm getting over the banking industry. Of course my heart is always to be a cosmetologist, but since that won't be happening anytime soon, I need to be somewhere, that doesn't stress me out and makes me happy. I used to work at the old one a few years ago and enjoyed it, so I hope to hear about that within the next week or two. The closing date for the job ends on the 11th (next monday) so because of the opening date, I'm thinking something will come along interview wise soon. Pray for me that if it's in God's plans that the door will be open for me to work there. It will save us $258 in insurance a month so if I can get the same pay, or more would be nice, than we will be able to save more money to buy a house!

Yeah I said it, buying a house. Our plan is with this next income tax to pay off the rest of our smaller debt, we'll still have his car and schooling, and then save money and start looking next year for something. Hopefully this will be an easy process. We've watched all of those HGTV shows about buying your first home, my first place, renovation type of things we feel we know what we'll be walking into, and I have a friend who is a realtor, and new realtor that we're hoping can give us some insite and help us walk through the process.

Until next time....don't ask me when that will be....
