I would like to INVITE you to...


Please come! It has so many more fun things this time. The amount of vendors has supposedly tripled! Which is so exciting! I am not sure which show is supposed to be bigger or better so come to both! It is this weekend and next!

Also, if you go to they are having lots of exciting prizes in the next little while.

I decided to have a little giveaway here too!
Okay, these things are WONDERFUL!!! They have helped me to keep my car MUCH MUCH cleaner!!

This bag is designed to hang over your stick shift, across the back of your headrest, or wherever you can think of! This bag is NOT designed to hold drive-thru trash, bottles (recycle those!), cans (recycle those too!), etc. This bag IS designed for all that small trash that tends to clutter up your cup holders and such.

Anyway, so leave a comment here and I will pick a random comment number as the winner on Thursday night at 10:00PM! The winner will receive a car litter bag of your choice (and I have about 50 designs!) and 3 sets(45 singles) of biodegradable refill baggies! I know that you will all love these as much as I do, so comment away! P.S. I will ship it to you as well!

I might even add in some extra goodies!! :)

California.. Sea World and LOTSA food!

This past weekend was so much fun and we really needed it! Braun starts his majorly busy work schedule this next week. Actually 1 week from today! All of Brauns offices are either there or on their way to their areas this week! Good Luck to all of you guys.. drive safe and have fun! I honestly miss going out in the summers already.. I really wish I could trade you places. :( Anyway.. I promised more Sea World and California pictures this week and so here they are! There were so many fun things that we did and so there is going to be a lot of pictures! Oh and the people we went with are named Jason and Missy! Jason is crazy busy like Braun and so we made our husbands take us on one last getaway! I am so happy that they just moved by us. They are such a fun couple and I am excited that I am going to be able to hang out with her all summer. I seriously think we were separated at birth. Me and her have so much incommon it isn't even funny! We LOVE Joes Crab Shack, White Chocolate Molton Lava Cake, our ear holes hurt when we wear cheap earrings, we love to shop (haha!), and there are a million other things that I just can't remember. Anyway.. here are some of the pictures from the trip!
Here is Em with her nose pasted on the window.. she loved looking at all the people down below!

Here is Em trying out her new carseat stroller.. if you don't have one of these.. GET ONE!! They are wonderful!

Braun doing what he does best!

At the mall they had this SWEET game that was interactive! I still have no idea how it worked. They were playing soccer (Em was sleeping!)

Here is Braun and Em.. we hadn't bought a stroller yet so he had to carry her all around the mall while I shopped!

Mmmm..this place was so good. I guess it is a big chain of restaurants but I don't remember the name. Maybe Uno or Juno or something??

I was craving some good Candy and we came upon a Candy Shop for millionaires.. seriously, it was $13 for a pound of candy. What a JOKE!

The next day we went to Sea World! Em LOVED it. She was shaking like a crazy person and screaming at the top of her lungs. I wish we could of video taped it. I kept having to apologizing to everyone around us because of how loud she was screaming!

Oh this picture gives me the Willies!

Here is cute little Madden! He sure loved the pretzels!

Poor Guy was HUGE!!

Jason, Missy and Madden

Joes Crab Shack.. mmm.. that sounds so good right now!

This was Missy's favorite part of the trip.. finding a SLINKY at Sea World!

Braun went out into the front room to find this!! She is so funny!

And here we are back at the airport! This trip went by way too fast.. lets hope the summer goes by just as quick! P.S. Look at Ems face in this pic!

And here is what I found when I went into Ems room when we got home!

I just need to tell you about this SALE!!!

So I am quite obsessed with Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags. Well, tonight at my Illustrator class a girl told me that they were having their "Sample Sale!" So I went to their discount website and sure enough, my diaper bag is half off!
I almost want to buy one for my next kid. Maybe I will. Ya never know how bad mine could look then! Anyway, I wanted to share this with all of you since I am pretty sure so many of my friends are pregnant right now! I have also been searching for a purse with a lot of compartments.. well, they have such a good one. It is called their their Touring Tote
I think I am going to order it. I just love it! Notice how it is still big? I need a big purse!

And look how convenient it attaches to a stroller!

And the website is

Happy Shopping!! Seriously, you can never find these bags on sale!

San Diego!

Well, it is almost 11 AM and I am still in bed. Braun is too! We have had such a fun time in California :) I can only post a few pictures because I didn't bring the camera cord, so I just have the ones from my phone! The weather here has been great--much better than the Utah Snow! We left on Friday morning, here are Diesel and Em on the way to take the dogs to their "Hotel!" (Em wouldn't look at me, she was too busy watching the "Bee Movie!"

When we got to the airport, they had opened a Krispy Kremes! I was so excited.. so I got a few! My favorite (and apparently Ems too!) Chocolate with TONS of sprinkles!

Uh ho, my battery is dying and my charger is in the other room where Ems still sleeping.. I will finish this post in a bit!

I want this so bad....

Isn't it so cute? I was shopping at Nordstroms today and saw one similar. I just love it. How much is too much to pay for a laptop case? I should stop dreaming, I bet this is above my budget..dang.

Obsessive Compulsive Maybe??

Well I walked out to get something out of our garage fridge and saw
this. Wow, that is Braun to a T!!! Notice how all of the labels are
facing forward, they are all in a perfect line and he stocked it full.
For those of u that know Me well enough... I am COMPLETELY opposite.
Poor guy!!


I added new polls! I love polls!!---------------------------------------------------->
Well there is not much to post about these last few days but we did
have a fun weekend! Braun and I went with our neighbors on Friday
night and saw 21!! It was so good! If you haven't seen it, you should.
Now I have to go see prom night. Anyone wanna go???

Last night we had a BBQ and it was fabulous!! I LOVE that warm weather
is getting closer!

Here is our sweetie driving to the BBQ!! Don't worry mom, it was just
a few doors down!

Okay, so now why is Rachel so excited in this picture?? (Besides the fact she is eating yummy Ice Cream??)

The Mouse has been FOUND!!!

So.. I know that it is 11:30 at night but I have to tell you all.. we have caught the mouse!!! I was just doing my nightly Lysol the house when I decided to check the traps we have set in every crack and crevice of our house. Well, I checked the pantry which the mouse had eaten the peanut butter and chocolate chip off AGAIN! So then I went to the under the sink traps.. well, I opened up the doors and checked the first 3 (We have 6 under the sink.. just to give you an idea of how bad I wanted the thing out of there!) And sure enough, he was there. I immediately screamed out for Braun.. he is stuck on the sticky traps. So now what?? Braun and I both feel terrible. I wish he would of just got his head stuck in one of the snappin' traps. Anyway.. I honestly didn't even think about what to do with him after he is stuck. So now, ten minutes later.. after staring at his big beaty eyes.. I think this mouse is kinda cute. Ugh.. what am I saying? Anyway.. I will let you be the judge.

Here is Braun... I think he just said to the mouse "Quit staring at me with your big eyes, You are making me feel bad!"

5 minutes later.. still not knowing what to do.. Braun decided to get a glove and give him his last few "pets" He honestly thought about trying to pry him off, the mouse was really REALLY stuck though :(

I am sure you are all thinking I am crazy for feeling bad for this thing, but seriously, I love animals (maybe not rodents so much.. ) but you should of seen the way this mouse was looking at us. So sad :( I finally just told Braun to take the thing outside and not tell me what he did to it. It is a good thing we like our neighbors.. think of how good of a doorbell ditch that would of been??!!!!!

My Sweat Shop....

Well last week my friend Amy was having some computer issues so she asked if I would fix them! She came over and I helped her out for a few hours. She asked if there was anything that I could do for me.. She also said, "Keep in mind, I am poor.. and lazy!" Well, cutting out large lots of fabric isn't my most favorite thing to do so I decided to make her do it! :) So sure enough, Amy came over last night and cut fabric for me! What a nice friend. She is for hire if anyone needs some help. Her face totally describes how she was feeling after I brought out yards and yards of fabric. She didnt know what she was getting herself into I don't think!

And I did what I do best.. Sat on my bum and ATE!

Oh and I laughed at her jokes occasionally too... if I wouldn't of, she probably would of left and made me do it.
(That was a horrible picture by the way!)

car broke down at my house yesterday so she had to hang out with me all day! What a bummer. We watched the Cheesy show Enchanted and LOVED IT!! I kept singing that song all day long.

I am starting to get so bummed that lots of my friends are leaving soon for the summer. Seriously, I have tears in my eyes right now! It doesn't help that Rachels blog is singing a sad song (I wonder--by Kelly Pickler) If you guys all don't keep blogging and calling me, you will be dead meat. Honestly. Please invite me to whatever state you will be in. I don't care if all I do is sit in your apartment all day. It will be fun! :) Anyway.. that was just my little vent.

Today I took Rach to get her car at the Jeep Dealership. After, we were bored and so we went to lunch! I about peed when I saw what was waiting for me in front of the restaurant. Braun decided to get me a new car!!

*********************************************************************************** ***********************************************************************************
Did I have you fooled? I can only wish for a G Wagon. But it was a great Photo OP right? Maybe one day..

Oh and Guess What?? I'll give you 3 guesses.....

So that is a joke.. but I needed to think of a way I could put that girls picture on here and not have it be totally random. But can you even believe that girls belly? My friend Jennie had it on her blog and I just about died. Poor Girl!

Conference Sunday!

Yesterday was a good day! It started off great.. We woke up and Braun made us pancakes. When I was done eating, I took over and made Braun some I {heart} U pancakes! Aren't they cute?

Then we watched conference and just hung out for a few hours! It was very relaxing if you can't tell.....

That is Emery lately to a "T" she loves just laying on the couch watching Cinderella. I think I have it on about 2 times a day lately. Oops! She loves it though and I am able to get a few things done.. yay!

Emery insisted that she bring her baby with us to my parents house. She rocked and fed it the whole way there. I am wondering if my boys will be this girly when they are her age? For those of you with boys, how do you make them not like dolls and like trucks instead??

I might as well add this in just to help you understand her girliness. She put the necklace on, had 2 purses, and wanted lip gloss and nail polish in both of them.

Have any of you played Settlers of Catan? This is a family favorite. If you have never played it, call us. We would love to play! Thanks Thatchers!! I am usually terrible at this game, but for some reason last night I was ON FIRE!! (Sorry MOM, you were cut out of the picture!)

Hey.. I got my ZOOM done!! Can you tell I was a little bored?

For those of you that know how to play Settlers, check out how good I was doing!

And since I NEVER win, I had to document the moment! Dang.. I am good!

Oh and just so you know, I can hear a mouse chewing on something in my wall. Yep, it has gotten into the walls. That dang mouse. I hope it is chewing on something that is poisonous.
