Time! What time?!

I know that just about everyone can relate, but life feels like it has been turned upside down. I felt like I was handling 2 kids fairly well, and all of a sudden time has passed so fast and nothing has gotten done. Laundry is never done, dishes are piling up faster than I can keep up with, and beds are not getting made! Where does the time go. I barely have time to get on the computer anymore. So for all of my fellow bloggers, I have been struggling. Hopefully I will find some time again for blogging. Free time, what is that?!

This morning I took Mac and Madi to Idaho Falls to do a little shopping. Just before heading for home I started feeling really funny. I couldn't really tell what was wrong, I just didn't feel right. I decided to make one last stop at Micheal's. I noticed as a walked into the store that my vision was going fuzzy. I tried to ignore it thinking my eyes just hadn't adjusted from the sunlight. But on the ride home it was getting worse. I wanted to pull over and call Ryan, but Ryan was playing in a golf tournament, and I didn't know what to do. So I figured I better hurry home before it got any worse. I couldn't concentrate on anything, and I felt like I was going to fall asleep at the wheeland my head was throbbing. I was so nervous to drive home becasue I had the kids with me, and I didn't know what was going on. It wasn't until this evening that it dawned on me what was going on. I was having a migrane! I started having migranes towards the end of this last pregnancy, but it was just severe headaches. Today, on the other hand, was the full-blown migrane. Lucky for me I have a perscription for it, and I am feeling so much better tonight. So for anyone out there who has had a migrane, no fun! I just hope this isn't a reaccuring incident.

So tonight Ryan and I had a banquet dinner for the member-guest golf tournament. Ryan invited one of his old friends to play with him, and they smoked thier competition. I am so proud of my husband. He is such an amazing golfer. It's fun to listen to people talk about him and how good he is at golf. Between the two of us we have 6 state golf championships. (Ryan has 4 and I have 2). I am glad that we both love to golf. When we were first married I would play terrible with him becasue I was so nervous and intimidated. Now, however, I would rather just watch him play. Well, enough chit-chat, I better get to bed. I did find my camera in my stroller today, so I will post pictures of the air show and Madi's blessing soon.

Weekend Review

Last weekend was so full of fun, and I have lost my camera, so I can't post any pictures. Please everyone pray that I find it. So my sister has been staying with us since last Tuesday, and it has been so much fun. The two of us are so different, yet we get along so well. I love having her here. So the rest of my family showed up to spend time with Becky and for Madison's baby blessing Sunday. We spent the majority of Saturday at the air show in Rexburg. I have never been to an air show before, and it was so neat. MaCrae had so much fun. You can only imagine how much this little boy liked the planes, even the really loud ones. (The air force base in Mountain Home has a huge air show in September that is suppose to be even better than this one, so we are already planning on it!) After the air show we all came back to my house and my parents cooked steaks and dutch oven potatoes. Yum-O. Sunday morning was Madison's blessing and it went so well. We had a BBQ after, and I have to thank everyone who helped. It was so much fun to have all my family together. So hopefully I find my camera so I can share all the fun pictures of the air show and Madi's blessing.

I haven't posted in only like 5 days and it feels like so much has happened. MaCrae thinks that he needs to ride in the baby carrier again. Sorry Mac, a little too big!! When we go to the mall (which is way too often) he also thinks he needs to ride in the stroller to.
Mac helping Daddy mow the lawn. Ryan didn't realize his bobbing head was asleep until he about crashed completely over on the steering wheel.
Girls night out. Last night me, Becky (my sister and Jen's mom), and Jen went out to dinner at the Texas Rhodehouse (yumm-o) and saw Sex and the City The Movie. I was never a huge fan of the show, in fact I think I have watched maybe 2 or 3 episodes on the CW channel, but I actually liked it. A little racy, no I should say a lot racy, but good. I wouldn't recommened this show to anyone without an open mind. But it made me laugh and cry. There were only 6 people in the movie including us, and one of them happened to be an older gentleman all alone. Sorry but it was kinda funny that he would want to see it. We were the first people in the theater, yet the other couple and single man had to sit in the row in front of us and behind us. Come on, give us some room. Thanks Becky and Jen for a fun night out, and a much needed one too! When didn't get home until 1, and I stayed up and talked to Ryan for at least another 2 hours. But lucky for me Madi only woke up once last night at 5:30. Love her, and hope she keeps up the good nights.
A friend of mine gave this shirt to Mac as a gift when she brought over a gift for Madi, and Mac thought it was so cool becasue it had tools on it. So this morning he had to find his tool belt and gear up! How cute. And since I wasn't with him at all last night I really missed him and spent some quality time with him. But it is now 10 a.m. and I am ready for a break!! Yeah, I am slowly getting out of the baby blues.

Another Favorite

I thought I would share with all of you my favorite snack. I don't know why I love them so much, I just do. They aren't real sugary or salty. And they are so dang addicting. I can go through a large bag in a week! Not only are they yummy, they are inexpensive and low in fat! And now they have them in Chocloate and Cinnamon. Yeah for Stauffer's Animal Crackers.

So I have made it 2 days now without crying! I know that sounds crazy, but last week was pretty hard on me. I realized that I had not been using the hormone balancing cream on regular basis. So Saturday night after my last big fall apart I decided to really give this stuff a try. And I am feeling amazing. I even made my bed and took both kids grocery shopping; and not once did I want to yell at MaCrae or cry! So I decided I would post of few of my favorite Arbonne products. The first of course is the Hormone cream. I swear by this stuff to also help with infertility and acne.
The second favorite is the kids multi-vitamins. It is a powder that I can add to Mac's juice. And he loves it. Since Mac is such a picky eater, and hardly ever does eat, I know that he is getting some of the essential nutriets.

And my 3rd favorite product(s) are their body butters. The newest scent has become my favorite, Vivacious. This amazing lotion incorporates many yum-o scents including coconut, passion fruit, guava, and pineapple.And speaking of favorites, Bath and Body Works is having thier summer clearance sale. $5 wallflowers, $3 lotions and body washes, and more!

Another first

Lucky for us MaCrae is not allergic to bees! One of his favorite past times is flicking bees off the dandelions in our back yard. Yes, we have dandelions thanks to our neighbors. We have had our yard treated, but there are still some lingering. Anyway, yesterday I caught Mac trying to catch bees. When I went outside to stop him he picked a bee up and showed me what a cool find he had. Well, later that day when he decided to come inside I noticed that he had been stung below his left eye. Apparently it didn't hurt too bad because he never cried or complained about it. I did try to take a picture of it, but I needed to change the batteries in my camera, and with the little time and effort I have, I decided not to. But bee sting sting or not he is a cute kid.
