getting groomed and they went a bit short! Hurley has more liver
spots than diesel!! Anyway, he has a stunning bob now and is smaller
than I imagined. He is about7 months and 2 Lbs so he should be about
done! I love puppies.. Like I twitterred about, I want a PUG! I love
how funny looking they are!!

For about 10 minutes so I decided to go hunt for Em. Sure enough, she
was downstairs...permanent market in hand.. Drawing all over herself
and on my some of my fabric. I walk in to my craft room and she is
saying "pretty..pretty... Pretty!!" she was so proud of herself! I
decided it wad time to break out the paint set I bought her a few
weeks ago. She LOVED it! It kept her busy for over an hour which was
nice! So moms... Get your kids naked, put them in their high chair and
let them paint!

into everything possible and I was about ready to scream. I decided to
turn on Cinderella and make her a hut. She is loving it and its
keeping her entertained. Oh dang it, she just pulled it all down.
Ugh!! How many more minutes til bed time???
TaraI just got this funny email and had to share!! Its funny to me cause I have gotten emails for most of them! Enjoy!
What I have learned from e-mails:
Dear Friends,I just want to thank all of you for your educational emails over the past year. Thanks to you,I no longer open a public bathroom door without using a paper towel.I can't use the remote in a hotel room because I don't know what the last person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.I can't enjoy lemon slices in my tea or on my seafood anymore because lemon peels have been found to contain all kinds of nasty germs including feces.I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking your nose (Although cell phone usage may be taking the number one spot)Eating a Little Debbie sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.I can't touch any woman's purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public bathroom.I must send my special thanks to whoever sent me the one about poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.Also, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown) who is about to die in the hospital for the 1,387,258th time.I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program. Thank God for their Philanthropy !!I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa's novena has granted my every wish.I no longer eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.Thanks to you, I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.Because of your concern I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.I no longer can buy gasoline without taking someone along to watch the car so a serial killer won't crawl in my back seat when I'm pumping gas.I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put 'Under God' on their cans.I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.And thanks for letting me know I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face...disfiguring me for life.I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.I no longer receive packages from UPS or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.I no longer shop at Target since they are French and don't support our American troops or the Salvation Army.I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for or which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda;, Singapore and Uzbekistan .I no longer buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe.I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big brown African spider is lurking under the seat to cause me instant death when it bites my butt.And thanks to your great advice, I can't ever pick up $5.00 dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a sex molester waiting underneath my car to grab my leg.I can no longer drive my car because I can't buy gas from certain gas companies!If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 PM this afternoon and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician...Have a wonderful day...

Lovin the BUNNIES!!
Riding the little Ponies!
We had so much fun that day. After seeing all the animals, we went to JCW's. It is a restaurant like Crown Burger or Astro Burger. It was really good! They just opened up right by Thanksgiving Point. So now we have about 3 restaurants by our house. Things are looking up! :)
Yesterday Braun came home from Charlotte NC. Thanks Simmons and Ramsays for taking care of my husband! He said you guys were great and thanks for the dinners! I think I am going to go out and visit your office in June, so brainstorm up some fun things to do!
It was a pretty nice day and so we got to eat out on our patio. We had some yummy Hawaiian Haystacks. My FAVORITE!! Little off topic, but here is the back of Em's head. I am loving that she is getting longer hair. It is getting curlier and curlier. I just love it!
Em is loving that her daddy is home!! She wanted to be with him all day long! Every other word out of her mouth was "HOLD YOU DADDY.. HOLD YOU!"
Oh and Happy Memorial Day everyone!! This is weird being home for this holiday. The weather here in Utah isn't the greatest. It is raining and kind of cold. I hate this weather. I wish mother nature would just make up her dang mind and let us have summer. My #1 thing I love about summer are....
SNOW CONES!!! The past 3 places we have gone in the summer haven't had any. We passed a little Snow Shack today and I HAD to stop! I got my favorite.. Passion Fruit, Mango and Strawberry. Monster Style. Yummmy.... it was delish!!
So this week is going to be pretty crazy. Tomorrow our painters are coming and taking off every door in our entire house. YUCK. Our doors in our house are black and I guess when black paint sits in its can for a little while, it changes sheen. So when they touched them up, they are matte in some spots and shiny in others. Then on Wednesday, I go in for my first ultrasound!! I love that my new doctor does ultrasounds at the start. It just gets rid of that questionable due date. So I will tell you all how that goes on Wednesday. AND I have to finish 100 Car Litter Bags by this Saturday. Yep. I should stay pretty busy this week!
Have an awesome Memorial Day! I am off to buy Em a new carseat thanks to Delta! :)
Saturday, May 24, 2008
Luckily I was able to cut it all out while Emery was sleeping. I was sending Rachel pics of my progress just to make me feel better about it.
Also, I would like to thank ASHLEY for being my sweat shop worker the other day. I am thrilled that I finally got my serger working/threaded right.. maybe we will have to try it again when we can be a little more productive!! :) You are awesome!
The tutorial on how to make them is HERE!!
ETA: These won't even scratch your silver fridges! Yay! I hate that I have to cover the back of my magnets with fabric so it doesn't scratch it.

Images taken from: A Little Sussy
And look how dang cute these are!!! Bulletin Boards!! Love it...
You can get them HERE!
So cute.. and such a cute design. I think I need them! Also, if you want to get the oval hoops.. get them from Michaels. I found mine there.

is just in a big rats nest every morning and after every nap. It just
falls out onto her pillow because she twists and turns all night. So
my question is, would a silk pillowcase stop that? Both of my grammas
slept with one and I didnt believe it worked. Any opinions? I'm sick
of the tangles.
It just goes through and shows you fun ways to style your kids hair.. I actually plan on doing a few to my own as soon as I get my extensions put back in! And yes, I am putting them back in. My hair is at the worst possible length. It doesn't know whether to curl under or flip out and so I do it and about 15 minutes later, it looks terrible. So Jenna, when are you available??
I am loving this warm weather lately. Well, with yesterday as an exception. I truly thought that my house was going to blow down in the middle of the night. It kept me awake long enough that I had to get up to eat TWICE and that is about every 2 hours. They are building a Smiths right by us and I guess last week one of the brick walls blew down!! Crazy huh? I guess that is what 70 mph winds will do! Luckily, all but one of my flowers survived the attack. I planted about 50 (I think...maybe more-sure felt like more!)
I have a busy busy day today. I have to get about 100 bags made before June 1st. The Quilted Bear called me a few days ago and asked if I would set up a booth there for my bags. I think one of them must of come to Oh Sweet Sadie this month and saw them. I am really excited and hope they will do well! They did really good at the boutiques. I did my inventory last night (I have been lazy!) and I think I sold about 50-60 per show. Who knew people had disgusting cars like myself?? Since getting a new car though, I have kept it suprisingly clean! Maybe because it is so big, it is easier to hide things. Probably. Anyway, I had a great idea for a blog post that might come later today. I sure hope I can find the time, because it will be really fun!
Also, on a scarier note.. I am getting a belly already. Why is that scary?? Well, I was huge with Em and my belly didn't show yet. I was about 14 weeks when you could tell that I was pregnant. Yep, I will go get my external HD and post pics of what I looked like at 14 weeks and what I look like now. I guess I am just short and need to deal with it. It is just one of those things that you hope when you go to the doctors they will tell you you are a month further than you really are. Yeah right.. .I can only dream. ...***)))***...
Here is me at 3 months last time..
Here is me now.. NOT good.. maybe I should start eating every 3 hours instead of every 2. :)

(Angie, I am off to find some funny pictures of us to post..maybe the one of us mooning the camera at cheer camp??... Perfect.)
Saturday, May 17, 2008
This week has been pretty fun! I am really liking this warm weather and constantly going out to eat. I am seriously hungry all of the time.. for some reason, I don't remember being so hungry like 24/7 with Em. Last night I had a dream that I was having twins. It was so weird. I used to always think that I wanted twins when I was younger. Now that thought scares me to death. I wouldn't be able to handle it. Things happen a lot quicker being pregnant with your 2nd. I didn't get sick as quick last time, I didn't feel this fat at 7 weeks (I am sure it is all in my head, but my pants are already getting tight around the waist.. ugh) and I wasn't this exhausted either... I have been going to bed around 8PM this whole week. For those of you that know me really well, I usually don't go to bed until midnight at the EARLIEST!! Good thing Em likes spanish cartoons this week! :)
Another thing that I discovered this week is Google Reader! It is so awesome.. Okay, let me teach you how it works. It is great for bloggers. You know how you have the list to the side of your blog -----------------------------> of all of your blog friends, and when you want to see who has updated, you just click down the line of everyone? Well.. you don't have to do that anymore! All you have to do is sign up for google reader (it is free!) and you "subscribe" to all your friends blogs. It automatically updates when people blog and you get a new message like an email with their post in it! It is really cool.. go type in google reader to subscribe to mine!! :) That is a picture of it in action.. it tells me that I have 6 new blogs to read.. yay!!
Now onto California! I went to some mall with Em the other day.. we went to The Cheesecake Factory with some of the wives out here. After Em and I went and did a little shopping! Oh man, she was so good to shop with. She was so happy the whole time. We made a pit stop at a fountain and I let her run through it for about an hour. I thought that she would be scared of it, but nope.. that wasnt the case! She kept going up to the holes and looking into them and they would get her right in the face. She would just laugh her head off. Here she is playing!
Oh and look at how cool these things are!!! They are a stroller attachment that makes your sunshade a little shadier! I love them.. I really want one. I couldn't decide on which one though.I will probably just end up making one.. go to www.bellahmay.com to see them. Soo cute!
Yesterday was REALLY REALLY interesting to say the least.. we got up, got on our swimsuits and planned on swimming all day long. Sounds fun right? We went to find a Wendys to eat and our GPS took me to some house about 15 minutes away. We ended up eating at a chinese restaurant called Pick Up Stix. It was really good! Em and I ate outside and fed the birds for about an hour! She LOVES feeding the birds. Well, on the way home.. we stopped at Red Mango and got some frozen yogurt. I have heard amazing things about this place. When I got there, I asked for a sample and tried it.. It tastes like sour milk. It was disgusting. Rachel told me that you have to get past the initial taste and you will love it. So I ordered one. Needless to say, I finished it and now I want more. I think I will go there today.. twice. I need to make up for missing a few days of it since I have been here. And the best thing about it is its pretty much like drinking water. It doesn't have much of anything in it but healthy stuff. MMmmm.. be sure to get fruity pebbles on it just to make it a little less healthy. :) They are opening up on in Provo pretty quick. I might need to make a few trips down there a week!
Okay now back to my story. We got back to the hotel and they were having a Cali-Fur Convention at our hotel. The pool was filled with tons of people wearing tails. Yes, you read right.. Tails. Em and I just ignored all of the weird people and did our thing. I got Em a swimsuit at Target that has these floaty things that you stick IN it. It looks so dorky but hey, it works! She had a blast and thought she was such a big girl!
Now for the thing that made my day SOOO weird. Well, I mentioned that they are having a Fur Convention at our hotel. Our hotel right now is full of people wearing tails, people dressed as animals that go around licking each other, and last but not least.. "Stalking Cat" Eeew.. I get the willies even thinking about him. Yesterday I was at the pool and Emery got sick of swimming and wanted to go play on the stairs. She went up and down at least 5 times before stopping at the top and just staring. I couldn't see what she was looking at because their was a hedge that was taller than I was. I go up to get her and I literally screamed.
All of those silver posts on his lip are attachments for his whiskers...
I was so shocked.. I have seen him on TV before and thought it was the strangest thing that someone would want to morph their body into a cat. Here is everything that this guy has had done to him. Yes, he is a guy.. he does have boobs, but I guess they are just a birth defect or something like that. (His friend told me!) Here is what the web has to say about this feline man...
"Stalking Cat's transformation is estimated to have cost more than $200,000, but Cat himself has lost track of the great physical expenses. He has had all his teeth removed and replaced with tigerlike dentures and fangs. He has had nose and brow implants, and silicone cheek, chin and lip injections. He has had his lip split to resemble the mouth of a cat and six stainless-steel mounts implanted on his forehead and 18 piercings above his lip to which he can attach whiskers. The tips of his ears are pointed. He also has tiger stripe tattoos covering most of his body. He also plans to have implants inserted into the top of his head so he can attach cat ears. Most of these modifications are done by body-modification artist Steve Haworth of Phoenix, Arizona."
So Strange.. I had to ask for a picture with him. Emery was clutched to me for dear life. This is a pic of a pic... sorry for the quality!

me wrong, the whole thing isnt good... I went to a part earlier in the
day which was really trashy. "tutsy" purses instead of Juicy, lots of
fake cheap stuff that is usually going to rip or break right when you
get home. So beware! If you go, call me. I probably only went to 1/2
of it (it is 90 blocks) but I found plenty of things! They have a lot
of designers showrooms there. Like for example, True Religion had a
store there and all of their new things were all 50% off. This is
totally the place where everyone gets everything for their pants,
purse, shoe parties etc!
I only had one bad purchase the entire day and it was this pirated
movie. I figured $5... Not bad. Better than 16 to go see it in
theaters. That way Braun wouldn't have to suffer through it. Well I
just put it into my computer. No sound and fuzzy as can be. I just
laughed. The funny thing of it is, I kept trying to ask the Chinese
man if you could see people in front of the screen or hear people
talking in the background and he kept saying..."yes yes... Berry good.
Berry good." I should of known.

Oh, I also hear that fabric is around $1-2 a yard and they have all sorts of crochet flowers, etc for super cheap! I am thrilled!!

Em and I came to LA this week while Braun is training some guys. The flight was crazy early (woke up at 5:50 am) to some of you, that's not early.. But to me it is! Took our dogs to their "hotel" and almost missed our flight because I insisted on getting 3 Krispy Kreme donuts. I had to. They are so dang good! Right as I got up to the gate, Ems stroller/car seat kept coming at me after I stopped, gave me a huge flat tire and I dropped everything. My purse was completely
overflowing so when that fell, stuff was rolling everywhere. Getting up to the gate was a challenge too cause I kept dropping everything. Traveling with kids is dang hard! Anyway, got on the plane and realized I forgot my donuts at the gate.haha... Just kidding, that
would of totally ruined my whole day so I was clinging to those for life!! Anyway, the flight was exhausting because neither of us wanted to hold Em cause we were BEYOND tired after only getting 3 hours of sleep the night before. Needless to say, I am back in bed snuggling with my little girl with a stomach ache from it being 2:15pm and the only thing I've ate all day is 3 donuts. Oh and get this, we flew on a Sky west plane and you know how sometimes when u get off a smaller plane, they drop you off outside and you have to walk down about 20 feet of stairs? Well today we were waiting for our carry ons and Ems car seat and stroller thing to be carried off the plane to us. Well, we see them throw it on the top of the rolling jet way and we watched it fall from about 20 feet and come crashing to the ground. I was so mad! It was Ems new GoGo Kidz attachment and her new big girl car seat. I wanted to scream! The car seat broke so they best be buying me a new one!! Okay, its been a long day. I need to stop complaining!
Anyone know anything fun to do in LA??

***Edited To Add Some Details!***
I am feeling pretty good. I am super tired (went to bed last night at 7 AND took a nap during the day!) for some reason when I am pregnant, I get these crazy bad headaches. Those have DEFINATELY started up again. They are like an all day thing. It is weird being pregnant with a second because you can't really be a baby and sleep all day or just lay down and relax. Emery is more of a busy body than ever and being "husbandless" I don't really get to complain! Which might be a good thing! Last pregnancy, you could look at me at 3 months and you were able to tell I was pregnant (not just fat!) That scares me really bad. I hear it gets quicker everytime. But with me being short, I guess I have nowhere to go but out!! I am due the first week in January, so I still have a ways to go! Lets just hope this one goes by quicker than Em did! I am sure that it will, the past 3 weeks that I have known have FLOWN by! haha!
Braun has Been out of town all week visiting his offices. Well of
Friday, my sister and I went to dinner and I
Got the great idea of going to get our girls ears pierced. So after
about an hour of talking her into it.. We went. I tried calling Braun
to warn him but he didn't answer. So technically it is his fault that
she has these little beauties in her ears. Well he finally called me
back and is now quite mad. I don't think that I can leave them alone
together for the next few days until he realizes how cute they are.
Otherwise, this might be the last picture in these little cuties. Wish

Also, it is 9AM and I am 9 hours late on the drawing. I am going to video tape it but realized I should probably shower and put a little make up on first! So you need to wait just a bit longer:)

Since "Oh Sweet Sadie" is this weekend again, I have decided to do yet another giveaway! This time, I will pick 2 winners.. Each winner will receive a Litter Bag, 3 sets of refill baggies(45 bags total) and hmm...how about a big kiss from me? Just kiddin..how about 5 Button Pony O's a piece! You can pick them up at the show or I can ship them to you! Yay! I love contests! Leave a comment below. Tomorrow night at midnight I will pick 2 winners.. I will print out and cut up the comments and draw 2. Much more fun than letting a computer do the picking! (Which I later found out that random.org isn't very reliable!)
Anyway.. if you are feeling EXTRA lucky, head on over to www.ohsweetsadie.com and enter into that drawing too! It is for my bags...
Oh and if you are feeling generous, leave me some ideas for what to get my Mom for Mothers Day!
In the middle!
(You might think that I am crazy, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have tight kinky curls similar to that "poof" in my hair. I am not sure why, but there is just something about a fro that makes me smile!)
Em had to get her 18 month shots the other day.. she did so great! She jumped a little bit when they stuck it in but I gave her a little sucker and she didn't even cry! Go Em!!
I am sure that you all know by now that I have a really big head. Literally. Most hats don't fit me and Headbands give me a headache because they are so tight. Braun once read that people find larger heads more attractive and so whenever he makes fun of me, I just remind him of what he once told me. Well, our little Em finally got one thing from her mama. A large noggin. Em is in the 10th percentile for her height and the 95th for her head! Haha!
And last but I am sure NOT least...(due to how wonderfully I am blogging lately!) Do any of you SKYPE?? Rachel and I skype chatted last night and I LOVED IT!! If any of you do, add me to your friend list! My login is tarathueson. It was so fun to see her and talk to her! And the best part about it is that its free!
Oh.. one more thing, would any of you like to start an online recipe exchange? I would post a theme a week and you could come on here and post your favorite "Mexican food" or "Dessert" or whatever item is under the category? I am in need of some new good recipes! So please, lets start sharing! If I get enough people that say yes, I will start it asap!
Thanks!! Have a wonderful day!

> to the door looking like this!! Isnt that funny?
I have always wanted a white dog that I could do this to... hmm... I might have to improvise. Diesel is white, but he is already ugly so I would feel bad. Watch out James and Heather..Mokie might come home looking like this one day!! :)
