blabber mouth

I am so mad right now because I made the cutest video tonight of Gabby laughing at who knows what! She was so hyper about an hour before bed and was going nuts in her room. I captured some of it but can't figure out my camcorder! UGH! I will have it posted by tomorrow night-that is my goal!
On another note, I can't stop biting my nails!! I hate seeing people in public bite their nails and I am the epitome of "the gross nail biter". I was so nervous during the MTB4 finale that I bit one of them to blood seepage! GROSS.
I also seem to have a freakishly messy chaotic household. I swear I do stuff all day long, Gabby is just much faster at making a mess than I am at cleaning one up!
Shaun and I went to Vegas again Sun-Tues and had an absolute blast but I came home to a pigsty of a home. Shauns mom was so nice to watch Gabby for 2 nights!!!!!!!!!! It was our first time away together since she was born. Again, it was fabulous. We stayed at the Belagio again and went to see Mystere. That show blows me away! Incredible and SO worth the money (It is the cheapest Cirque De Solei show). I have seen all of them now, and it is my fav fo sheezy. I know, we go to Vegas way too much. We won't be going anywhere for a bit now.
We won a cruise to Alaska in Sept. but gave it away to Shaun's grandparents instead. We both didn't wanna leave Gabby for that long. Plus, I have already been there.

I am so pissed off because it sucks to be a woman sometimes. Like for instance; I have been working so hard to eat really great and keep up with working out. I lost 5 lbs. I always get stuck at a lame weight that won't budge. I managed to lose the chub I was battling only to gain it back because I looked at (okay, ate) some not so healthy food over the last week (on several different occasions). Why do we gain weight so flippin easy? I hate fat!

Sorry, that was the worst post I have ever done. I just started typing so I'd stop biting my nails!

Gabby posts/videos and Justin Timberlake concert post coming sooooon!

Give me your opinion

So I have been searching the Internet for good plastic surgeons in Utah. I want to get a boob job but definitely not right away. I know I should wait until after all my babies but that could be another 10 years. I am still not even sure of what I'm going to do but I haven't seen any pictures I like....This is a problem! What are some good Dr. anyone has heard of and should I really wait that long to get them done? Ugh, I feel like I have man boobs now days! Yikes. Really, things have gone pretty south and are rather empty. What are your opinions? Do you know anyone who got implants before they were done having babies and regrets it?
Good thing I went private!

Oh shizzzzzz!

Just a quick little note here. I totally pulled a Camie today! I will first off brag a tad about my laundry SKILLZ! I love laundry. I am usually super good. I never make a mistake with drying stuff I shouldn't or mixing colors etc... WELL, today I thought is was about that time to start making the switch to Gab's bigger sized clothes. I have a ton of stuff that I've been collecting. So I threw it all in the wash and went about my duties. I later go to put it in the dryer.....I notice right away that everything even slightly lighter colored is splotched to death with brownish and dark spots! As well as a completely drab horrid color!!!! (SCREAM- brand new clothes ruined!) I will admit that I purchased Gabby some dark brown Juicy Corduroy pants and accidentally turned my wash water on HOT!!!!!!!!!! I ruined some really fabulous things not to mention that cute pink 'bargain' find from TJ's the other day! Oh, I could kill myself! I did rush to the store to buy color safe bleach and try again (after removing the dark pants)

Ugh! :(

Calling all mommies!!! Slightly desperate....

As I sit here at 9:30 PM listening to my 15 month old cry I am feeling frustrated, desperate, and sad. I feel like I do everything I can do to create a comfortable, consistent and fun bedtime routine for Gabby. I devote every minute of my life to her.
I have been experiencing bedtime trauma for the past month or so. I will first and foremost admit that I put Gab down with a bottle....I know, terrible but I was once at my wits ends a long time ago and it did the trick.
Now days, Gabby's bedtime has seemed to slip from 7:30, to 8, to 9 and some times even later than that. I try to put her down earlier, no dice! Crying. She used to NEVER let a peep. I need to take her off a bottle (she won't take a sippy very good) but I'm afraid she'll miss all that fat she needs from milk. SO, back to the point. PLEASE, if your a mom give me your advice on getting your little ones to bed without tears and a fight. Gabby is so fussy lately in the evening. I don't think it is teeth, no new ones and it has been about a month of this.
I know it seems so selfish but I need my free time at night and I feel like I don't have that at all anymore. Gabby needs the sleep and I don't know how to put her to bed. Routines are great, but Gabby won't sit on my lap through one page of a book and she will NOT rock with me unless she is guzzling a bottle. As soon as the bottle is gone, she is flying off the chair. She still takes two naps most days....Could this be the problem? I am pretty much sick of hating bed time along with her. What time do your babies around her age go to bed and how?
Any advice at this point would be greatly appreciated.

I love a good bargain!

I have had nothing to blog about for so long. I still have nothing to blog but I did hit the jackpot at TJ MAXX tonight!!!
Shaun went golfing today (for the 3rd time this week, I won't even go there on fairness!) so, after a fabulous dinner at Cafe Rio tonight he took the baby home, played with her and put her to bed.....and I went shopping!
I decided I NEEDED to go to TJ's to find a cute toy basket for gabby's room. When I got there I accidentally browsed at the clothes and stumbled upon about a hundred pairs (in every size I might add) of fabulous Joe's, Sevens, Rock and Republics, Paige Premiums the whole 9 yards! Jeans galore! Brianna will be proud but I didn't buy any! I did however get me some spiffy new workout clothes for $9.99 each. Not to mention some freakin cute Puma pant thingys for like 16 doll-hairs!!!! Wahoo!
THEN, I stumbled upon the baby clothes! I scored Gab a fabulous pink velour Juicy suit and Juicy dress that is to die for! A $125 dress for $40, I couldn't pass it up! What a ridiculously pleasurable evening I had myself!

Oh, and I did not find that toy basket I really needed :) haha!

TIM!


I went to the Tim and Faith concert as a last minute thing with my sis-in-law last Sat. It was pretty much off the hook! I used to be a bigger fan back in high school. Now I don't keep up on his music but it was such an amazing show! I had a great time. I promise I did not intentionally focus on Faith's butt. My camera was being soooo slow and I missed her looking down at US! Talk about disappointment. Actually, ALL of my pictures were very disappointing. My battery was like completely dead so I just got what I could. I wanted to make a fabulous little movie of one of his bigger hits....DEAD camera! LAME! Still a fabulous show!

Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger



My new favorite show (well besides all my reality junk) is Healthy Appetite....On the Food Network. She teaches you so much about little secrets of cooking healthy without sacrificing great taste. I have started cooking at home more and I am really starting to like it too.

This, that and the other

I have already tried to post this like fidy times! If it doesn't work this time, forget it! So, again, these are some of the happenings the past month or so. We went to Vegas during the fabulous power outage here a couple weeks back. We swam and shopped and stayed at the Venetian. Good times. Gabby basically loved looking out the huge window of the hotel room. She would just put her little foot up on the window and stare out! So cute. Then we have been doing pig tails lately to change it up a bit....She rips them out in less than an hour so pictures are a must. She also had her very first sucker experience too....Loved it!
We have ourselves a daily disaster in our closet. Gabby loves to pull all my lower clothes off thier hanger! I'm so not a fan of her doing this. She has been falling asleep lately with one leg underneath her and the other day she had this little plastic toy covering her face and her little closed eye peeking through the hole. I had to get a picture of that as well.

OneRepublic

I don't know if you all caught SYTYCD tonight....I just have to say, Ryan Tedder is a total hottie playing that piano and singing like that. He might be better then Edward!
I have to do a little shoutout to my new man, Ryan!
