Crappy butter

Thursday, May 27, 2010
So Allen's family is coming into town today. We are all going to his sister's house for dinner tonight. I am in charge of dessert. I decided on chocolate dipped eclairs. Here is my story:

Just over a month ago, I purchased this butter. I tried making cookies with it. They sank. I was so confused. Again about a week later, I tried baking a different kind of cookies. I used the same butter. They sank. What the heck is up with that butter. It sucks. I forgot about the butter...until today. I made my eclairs. They were in the oven and they looked soooo yummy. They were all puffy and golden brown. I went to check on them again. I opened the door and they had sank. Ahhhh. I looked at the wrapper from the butter that I was the same piece of crap butter. Now my eclairs are flat and are pieces of crap. They do taste yummy, they just look nasty. Dinner is in an hour and a half. I don't know what I am going to do for dessert now. Oh no. What to do....the clock is a tickin'....

Today is May 24th. It is snowing outside. Yes, you read that right. It is nasty out there. Where is my sun?

Last night LOST ended. It was a devastating time in my life. Not really. But I miss it already. I was disappointed in the ending. Even though it makes sense, it still doesn't. I still have questions. I am not happy to see the best show gone. I loved it. Oh well.

The Bachelorette starts tonight. I don't know if I will like this season, but I will still watch.

Riley is cute as can be. I love my child with all my heart.

I miss Allen. I wish he was home playing with Riley and I since I am locked inside this house because of the weather.

Lauren is having her baby soon and I am sick of waiting. :)

I am trying to figure out what to do for dinner so I can defrost whatever I need to. I'm thinking maybe Mongolian Beef....I don't know.

Allen got me a gift card to a salon for mother's day. I am getting my hair cut and eye brows waxed...but I can't seem to find a babysitter. Hopefully I can for sometime this week.

I heart my boy

Friday, May 21, 2010
Can I just tell you that I love being a mommy. I love it so much. I love checking on Riley right before I go to bed each night. I feel like my heart sings every time I look at him sleeping. I love his huge smiles when he sees me in the morning. I love that he gives me huge kisses. I love his huge personality. I love his face when he sees his toys go off making the noises they make. I love when one of his toys (who speaks) says "Bye" and Riley turns to it and waves and says "BYE!" I love that when I take off his diaper he gets up and runs away real quick before I can put the new diaper on him. I love how happy he gets when his daddy gets home. I love how he watches us in his "window spot" each time we go outside and he waves at us until we get back inside. I love how every morning he picks his "spot" to drink his bottle for the rest of the day. I love everything about him. He is just the cutest kid and brings Allen and I so much joy. Thanks little bug! I love him so much.

Here's a funny...

Thursday, May 20, 2010
So yesterday morning, we were all laying in bed and Riley just stuck out his tongue and stuck in it Allen's mouth. True story! Yeah, I know...kinda gross...but oh so funny! We had a nice laugh.

Yes, I am weeding right now and let me tell will be the death of me. I totally thought that it wouldn't take so long. I was so unbelievably wrong. I weeded for an hour or so and I feel like I barely made a dent. I am so grossed out by all the nasty spiders and bugs that I saw and touched. So gross. My body hurts and my hands are dry now. I just don't want to go back out there. Ahhh.
On the other hand, I am so excited for my garden this year. I went and bought little plants of what I am planting. This year we are planting:

-Green Onions
-White Onions

I am just so darn excited. I just wish you could snap your fingers and have them right now. This is my first gardening experience and I am sure I will fail at some of them. But I am so excited for the experience and seeing my success. So exciting!

"I’m just grateful that I’m here on this earth and that I have the opportunity to be a mother and do the things that I love and enjoy. I view my role now as more divine… not just a mother who wakes up and makes her kids food. It’s a mother who enriches and teaches about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I see it more as a privilege than anything. To me, beauty and motherhood are one. They’re the same thing." -Stephanie Nielson

This is it!

Saturday, May 1, 2010
So we are all moved into our new place and we LOVE it here. I could stay here for many years and be happy. It is a little older, but it is a cute place and so spacious. Riley loves wandering around the place and checking things out. There are so many windows and we get so much light. We seriously never have to turn a light on until like 8 at night. It is so nice. Riley loves to stand next to the windows and look outside. He goes right to the same window if we go outside. He just watches us and waves. I love when Allen leaves for work. Riley will go to the window and watch him drive away and he will keep waving and saying "bye...bye...bye" over and over again...even well after he left. It is one of the cutest things ever. This little boy brings so much joy in our lives. He has been so unbelievably cute the last couple days and we just sit here and laugh with him. I love watching him walk's just so cute.

We have been super sick over here. It's not going away. Allen had to take 3 days off of work because of how sick he has been. The weather is nasty here. It's been raining and snowing for days. I am ready for the sun...but probably wont see it for awhile.

I am looking forward to tomorrow's paper...3 coupon inserts inside...WOOHOO!!!!
