February Favorites

I realize that most all my entries on here are about Jackson, so i shall now take some time and share some of my February Favorites with you - these are just little random happies that make me smile :)

1. The band "Inhabited" - ahhh! they are so fun! every morning i hear their new song on the christian radio station and it just gets me groovin! Their sound is a mix of like Gwen Stefani and Pink and fergie maybe?? anyway - check out their myspace page and listen to the song "Hush." Such a fun, pumpin christian song! Where my girls at??!?!?

2. Heavy Bangs - yes, i am so into the heavy bang look right now! Not the straight across blunt kind, but the heavy, stacked, razored kind - ya know, like Katie Holmes or Reece Witherspoon. I am thinkin i am going to get some bangs in the near future, but who knows if i'll follow through. I had horrible bangs for the first 10 years of my life - heavy bangs that literally went from ear to ear, ugh. makes me shiver. my sweet mom thought it was cute that my sister and i had these matching mullet type hair styles. SO, since i was finally able to grow them out, and it took forever, especially over the ears, (ugh, shiver again) i may have a hard time cutting them.

3. The Biggest Loser - ahh! am so into this reality weight loss show! If you aren't into it, you must watch on Tuesday nights on NBC. It's inspiring, intense, and this week, it was quite cheesy. Grown men who are exhausted from their daily intense grueling workout were crying, no SOBBING, as they had to say good bye to one of their team members. I realize that this doesn't sound too cheesy, but if you saw this week's episode - you'll know what i mean - it was PAINFUL to watch it was so cheesy with so many tears. Enough already! Josh and i looked at each and just burst out in laughter. and then he made a profound statement, "it's b/c they are so tired - they are so emotional. It's just like it was in pledging - they tear you down to bring you up." Well, there you have it. Thank you KOT for teaching my sweet husband that valuble lesson. How can i ever thank you? :)

4. McDonald's milkshakes - ahhh! maybe it was b/c i've been sick and all i've wanted was soup or ice cream b/c it felt so good on my dry throat, but man, if you haven't had a good ole milkshake from Mickey D's lately, go treat yourself! The chocolate is delectible. They are so yummy, and for some reason, every time i drink one i have to go to the bathroom afterwards. Yes, did you know they are also packed with fiber?!? And, i make myself feel better thinking they make it with the same ice cream they make their 99% fat free ice cream cones with. I don't wanna know the truth! I shall just enjoy...and then go use the restroom. :)

ok, enough of my February Favorites. March is almost here...i gotta come up with something for March....
Stay tuned! :)

Trying to get back into the swing of things.

Ugh, i have been sick all weekend, it's been misery, but i am feeling a little better today. I did watch a lot of movies. I had forgotten how funny Nacho Libre was - ahhh! Jack Black is awesome.

Jackson also made me feel better this weekend...check him out having fun in the bath tub!

My little kitchen helper

Jackson wanted to help me make salads for dinner. It was hilarious because he actually did a great job putting the carrots in - hee hee. :)

Oh no I Di'unt!!!

Oh yes I did!! Ttoday while taking Jackson into school, i totally tripped on my beautifully tailored pants cuff and BIT IT big time! Yes, i had Jackson in my arms and for some reason, by the grace of God, i didn't fall on him - he was totally fine. However, i do have a huge boo boo on my knee and it was bleeding. The boo boo looked like one i used to get after playing outside when i was in elementary school and fell off my bike or something...but the crazy part is, my pants were totally fine - not even a snag (?? don't know how that happened) or a rip in the knee area, and my sweet Jackson was protected by my arms that hit the ground first - it could've been much worse. Thank you Lord. Jackson even kissed my boo boo as i left him at school - what a sweetheart. Oh, and the icing on the cake was that no one saw me...or i don't think they did. :)

Welll, Welll, Wellcome to the 90's Mr. Bonks!!

Ok, so the title of this if from one of my all time favorite movies, Father of the Bride. Of course, it's more like, Welcome to 2008 - it's time to get a blog, since of course, everyone's blogging now! Thanks to my sweet sister Kari, who can't get enough updates on her nephew, we thought this would be a great solution to creating an update for friends and family since we're all spread out! As you can see from the pic here, Jackson had a case of the Monday blues this morning.
Hope you all enjoy...more soon!
