Oooh New Hair!!

So.. today has been a little crazy. Actually A LOT crazy. But I got 3 VERY important things done today. I (with my sisters help--she's a gem!) got Em's new room cleaned out. So now I need to start painting like crazy. Can you paint while pregnant? Maybe I will have to wear one of those masks. Shoot! I didn't even think about that. I need to paint her walls and her furniture. She is using the furniture that my grandma--->then mom--->then me and now SHE will use! Cute eh?? I will hopefully start that right when I get back from Hawaii. THEN... I got my hair done finally! I can't believe I let myself go this long. It had honestly been about 4 months. Ugh.. that makes me sick. I went a little darker this time! My lovely friend Jenna did it and I LOVE it!


Oh a lovely "One WEEK away from 8 months" shot!

We went to a Halloween party at the Streiffs last night. It was super fun. I love getting together with friends!! Braun was white trash.. I was a pirate and Em was a darling little fairy. We Thueson's don't like to coordinate our costumes apparently. I will post pictures of all 3 of us as soon as Layla, Katie or Missy emails me some! I have misplaced my little camera. Weird.. Tara lose something??? Never.

Here is our little fairy. She loves her costume. I am so excited to take her Trick Or Treating tomorrow! Yeahoo! She is so cute. She loved carving "Poon-tins" with daddy. Braun is so good and patient with her. She is obsessed with her daddy. I kinda am too...

Thanks Missy.. stole these babies from your blog!

And last but not least.. (especially because I STILL haven't posted Ems birthday bash) we got family pictures done today!! My cute friend Amy took them. I can't wait to get them back. She is so dang good. It will be fun to see them. Of course, I will post them as soon as I get them!! :) Okay.. the pictures of Em's b-day just finished uploading. I am sure I will be back soon to post em!!

Ta Ta!!

6 Quirky Quirks...

Well, first off.. if you are having a bad day.. read this cute blog post from Kristin found HERE. It just makes you want to smile! :)

Secondly.. like I said, I have a lot of tags I need to catch up on. So here is another fun one. It is writing 6 quirks about myself.. Tara Thueson.. I am a quirky person, so this should be easy.. but its not. To be honest, I have been thinking about it for the past day and this post may turn out to be more of an embarrassment to myself than anything!!

Here's number ONE!! I LOVE being home. I could sit in my house for days and never get bored. I also don't think that I have ever been bored in my entire life. I'm not even kidding. My head is usually going non-stop and so maybe that is why. But back to being home.. I kind of look forward to winter when you have to sit in your house all of the time. It is so relaxing.. AND hanging out in your PJ's all day is the best!

Number TWO!! I eat soup at lease twice a day. I crave it breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not like Campbells soup either.. there are 2 family recipes that are "souper" easy.. (haha.. am I lame or what??) that I alternate everyday. "Grandpas noodles" which are egg noodles with milk, chicken flavoring&pepper and "noodles and tomato juice" which are elbow noodles with my canned tomato juice and a bunch of different seasonings. Yummy!

Number THREE!! I associate people with their handwriting. If I know you, I know your handwriting I am sure of it. A lot of times, when I think of a person.. my mind instantly switches over to what their handwriting looks like. It actually drives me quite crazy. Even if I haven't seen you in years, I know what your handwriting looks like.

Number FOUR!! Back to eating, I could also eat pancakes every morning. Sheesh.. I have a boring eating life. Pancakes and soup! I swear eating pancakes every morning makes me lose weight too. Maybe it is just the fact that I am eating breakfast, but I swear to you... it makes me skinnier.

Number FIVE!! I am obsessed with being crafty. If I see something that is cute, my first thought is always "Could I make this??" and I will usually attempt it. I have a gazillion bookmarks on my computer of fun crafty tutorials or ideas I want to attempt. That could be a blog post for another day. Going through and posting fun tutorials. I have OH SO many. I also have an obsession with buying craft and scrapbooking supplies. Most of them sit unused downstairs in my craft room. Which by the way, I NEVER craft in my craft room. I always craft upstairs on the counter which makes Braun SOOOO angry. (Especially since I BEGGED Braun to hire someone to finish it for me!)

Number SIX!! I hate cleaning but I have an obsession with GETTING organized. Does that make sense? I buy organizing books, read organizing blogs, etc but I never actually try out the methods. Maybe I should spend less time reading and more time organizing! I will let laundry sit in the washer and I pretend its not there. Then Braun goes to get something and it smells like mildew. I will rewash it and do that all over again :( Sorry babe! Yeah, its a bad habit. ALTHOUGH, you will never see dishes in my sink. I hate dishes in the sink. Yuck. Anyway, Braun loves a clean house though and so that is where my sister comes in. Yep, my sister cleans my house. Isn't that great?? She loves cleaning and organizing AND I love her for loving it!! She calls and asks me all the time if I want my house cleaned. I think everyone needs a sister like that!

Kinda embarassing post, but its just who I am! :) I now need to tag 6 other people.. how about Mags, Layla, Felisha, Amy Clark, Kara, and Lemony! You are all quirky people so it should be easy! :) haha!

I'm starting it early...

So if you've known me for awhile, you probably know I've had a long time love for Hello Kitty. I even had her bedding in High School. Ooh and a Hello Kitty belly button ring. (Yes, I had my belly button pierced. It was a weird phase I went through in High School. ) Lame I know. I liked her until she got all popular with places like Wal Mart, Charlotte Russe, etc. Then my innocent kitty became "punk rock kitty" and other stupid things. Well I'm proud to say, my little Em loves her too. No, I'm never going to put her in HK character clothes, but we will definately be going in her store and getting those delicious 5 for $1 gums that the flavor only lasts for 30 seconds.

Hallelujah, I finally have an excuse to go back.

Swimming in Park City!!

We took a dip up in Park City tonight. Brauns grandparents are up
visiting from Idaho and so we went to hang out with them for a bit. We
got to do a little swimming, water volleyball and hot tubbing!! The
air was chilly but the water was warm! Gotta love that!

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Well hello again!!

So I fought my urge and didn't go buy anything from Gymboree. Although, I still REALLY want to.. I am not going to do it. I am sure Braun will be proud.

Today we celebrated Em's birthday party! Our cute little 2 year old had a blast. She has gotten everything she asked for for the past 2 days. "Baba's" included. She never wants a bottle, but she saw it and changed her mind and with it being her birthday, I just couldn't say no! I will post pictures of that tomorrow. I took a gazillion and I've gotta sort through them all still!

So for now, here are pictures of our Vegas trip! It was super fun. Lots of yummy food, fun friends and best of all.. I got to hang out with my husband for 3 days in a row!! :) P.S. We go to Maui later this week!! I am so excited. We are staying at the Hyatt in Ka' Annapali(sp???) so if anyone knows anything fun to do around there, let me know!

Now onto Vegas...
Well we flew into Vegas and got picked up by a white hummer limo! It was cool :) I've never been in a Hummer before, let alone a Hummer LIMO!!

It took us to In N' Out for a delicous greasy filled lunch!!

Inside the sweet ride.. haha :) Our driver was this mid-40 guy who REALLY needed to floss his teeth and was obsessed with late 90's rap. Pretty sweet!
We stayed at "The Hotel" at Mandalay Bay. It was AWESOME!! They have a real "Beach" with waves, sand and everything. It was so nice to be able to relax in the nice warm weather. I even got a bit of a sunburn! Yeahooo! Oh and yes.. that is me in the middle. I am looking pretty large and in charge in this picture. Eh, that is what happens when you get into your pre-pregnancy swimsuit at 8 months along. I wonder what I am going to wear in Maui. I don't think my swimsuit waists can take much more of my motherly birthing hips.

The "REAL" waves!!

Here I am with the creepy blue man... Oh I wanted to pick at his face mask thingy so bad. I just sat there and stared..

Inside the blue man show!

Me on one of my many bathroom breaks during the show. We went to dinner before and I got a little carried away apparently...Ooooh! Notice my poop green phone cover. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I love green!
So one of the nights, they didn't have a limo for us and so we rented a "Party BUS!" Complete with 2 stripper poles. Yes, big ole me even took a whirl on it. It was hilarious!!! I have video of it all but haven't uploaded anything yet!

Funniest comment of the whole trip came from Missy. We were driving to Caesars Palace and pulled up to one of these "U-Haulish" trucks with the hot babes on the side. Missy looked at it for a second and goes.. "So.... like do they just load that truck up with sleezy girls like they would with animals and drop them off somewhere when people call??" Oh I about died. It was hilarious!!

We went to Joes Snow Crab or whatever it is called at Caesars. That is THEE most amazing seafood place in the world. I can't think of the real name of the place. It is our 2nd time there and both times were fabulous!!! I am not even a fish fan but when it comes to Joes, I can't help it.

We had such a fun few days! It was so nice to be able to get out of ole Utah for a change. Especially to somewhere warm! I'll be back tomorrow to post about Em's birthday party! It was fun!

Also, I added everyones blogs to my sidebar. I categorized it by friends, platinum friends, hair school friends..etc. So check to make sure you are there. There were a few of you that left comments and when I went to click on your blog from the comment, it wouldn't let me onto your blog. I think it happened like 10 times, so if your name isn't on there.. that is probably why!! And if you didn't leave a comment.. leave it here so that I can add you!!

Oh and have you guys seen Baby Mama?? It is a DANG funny show. I LOVE it! Maybe its cause I am pregnant, but seriously.. some of the lines in this show are freakin' funny.
I just wrote a paragraph of the funny lines from the show and when I re-read it I sounded like an idiot. So just trust me.. its funny.

I am a little behind on TAGS.. but here is one I thought was fun, quick and easy!! Go to your picture files, find the 4th folder and the 4th picture in it.. post it and do a quick explanation!
I had just gotten my ring back after a few months of it sitting in my closet. The diamond had been loose. Braun had been bugging me to take it in (I was getting hit on too many times..yeah right..totally kidding!) and I took a picture on my phone and sent it his way! It was an exciting day.

Oooh! Happy ALMOST Halloween.. Anyone know of a good costume for me?? Keep in mind the belly. I just googled and came up with this. haha! Eeew! Beer belly or pregnant belly??
So please help me.. I don't want to be white trash.

Happy 2nd Birthday Em!!!

Here is the birthday girl on her special day!! She is being so cute
today. Daddy got her a cute necklace and she's wearing her new
birthday shoes and dress. She got to ride on her daddys back while he
mowed the lawn (her favorite!!) and he is now taking her to ride the
fire truck at the car wash. Another favorite. We aren't celebrating
until tomorrow. But if all goes as planned, This girl is going to look
adorable in her mama-made birthday attire!! I love having this girl in
our family!! Just LOVE it!!

Oh My....

Oh my gosh..have you seen Gymboree's latest line of little girls clothes?? I am OBSESSED with everything in that line. I usually will wait for their clothes to go on sale to buy them, but I highly doubt they will have anything left of this line. Emery's birthday is today and she is having a "Polka Dot" party tomorrow with family and so I MUST go get that cute little jumper. AAAHHHHH! I just love it all!! :)

Wait a minute.. can you believe I have a 2 year old??? I surely can't.

Happy Birthday Little Emery!!!! :) I will write a post later about the festivities!

Martha Martha MARTHA!!!

So this past weekend we got together with a few of our neighbors for a murder mystery dinner!! The theme was "The Demise of Barpha DeStue" It was supposed to be a play off of Martha Stewart! It was super fun. I had never been to a murder mystery dinner before and it was a hit! :) I was Barpha's producer and needed to dress up like a homemaker and Braun was Barpha's handyman! Here we are! You all don't need to tell me how cute I looked, I already know! hahaha... the funny thing about it was that as I was leaving my moms house with her "Martha" clothes, she is saying.. "Now Tara, you better not ruin that dress or my vest. I really like those." Oh mom.. get with the times!!! (Did I really just say that?? Yep.. I sure did.)

(Check out the tennies.. Provo Homemaker to a T!)
Speaking of Martha.. check out this video. Oh have I mentioned my love that I have for Martha Stewart?? Seriously, LOVE THIS WOMAN!!! She is fabulous. Here is a video to prove it.

I have the urge...

to blog and I don't have enough time to post everything that I want to. Today has been great!! My mother in law came and got Em until tomorrow night!! yeahooo!! So I went to lunch with some cute neighbors and went to achievement days!! We made some pom pom pens :) I will post pictures later.
Ooh!! I got some cute boots.. wanna see them? Sure you do.. I liked them so much, I got them in 2 colors!

Oh and the Petunia Pickle Bottom sale started today!!! It was a semi-success!! I got 2 bags, BUT it was a pain in the you know what. I kept putting the one that I REALLY wanted in my cart and when it would get there, it would say it was out of stock. UGH!! Annoying. AND so many people were on their site, it was going super slow which made impatient Tara even more ticked. SOOOO... if you still want a bag, go to Wanna see my selections??

The cake bag is so cute BUT there is no way I would ever buy that thing full price. Holy smokes.. I am a cheapo! So Mrs. Petunia, thanks for having a sale!!! :)

Now all I gotta do is get this little girl here..
Here is my big buddha belly at 29ish weeks! Yep. I am out there!

Okay gotta run! Braun is at traffic school and I am going to girls night out with my neighborhood girls! :) Have fun!!

Can you believe that it is SNOWING outside?? What the heck is the deal?? I guess it is the middle of October already. STILL! SNOW???? Thats just nuts. Well, Em and I have had a fun past couple of days. Here is proof!

Went to Chili's with Rach and Jaidyn. There is a picture of all 4 of us, but holy smokes.. BAD angle for the pregnant lady so just use your imagination.

Em snapped my glasses in half the other night and so we had to get me some new ones. She wanted to try some on for herself!
Grilled Cheesies in the car! Actually Brauns car... don't tell him we ate in it.

My blossoming belly. Holy shiz.. this girl is going to kill me soon. I have the worst heartburn EVER!!!

One Day... (yeah right!)

My beautiful friend Amy at her reception :)

We went on a picnic yesterday and had a muffin tin lunch. Em loved it!

Finished a blanket for Paisley/Aniston/Indie this morning. Em thinks its hers!

Went to the dollar store and got some fun dress ups for Em!

Painted tombstones for the front yard! Spooky!!

Dracula Diesel and Ellie the Witch!

Did a lot of "WizdaBoz" watching.. Translation--The Wizard of Oz

And started making some more hair clips!

And made Braun take me to Chin Wah! Yummy!
