"boiled peanuts" that u have been wanting me to search for the past 3

Enjoy!!

Love,

Tara

Someones TIRED!

Yep! That's her trying to fall asleep on my luggage!

"ella"

I've always insisted that my children will never wear "Dora" "Disney
Princesses" etc. I've even blogged about that before I think! Well Em
thinks otherwise. We were in Wal Mart the other day and she had seen
us pushing around our luggage all day through the different airports
when she came upon this. A backpack/carry on princess bag just her
size. She pushed it around for about an hour while I shopped. When I
tried putting it back, she had already fell in love with it and I just
pictured her pulling it through the airport. So cute! Looks like I am
one of those moms that I swore I'd never be. Great!

Also, I added a little poll to the side. Guess what us Thuesons are
having! I'm going to find out the day the poll ends! 10 more days!
Yeahooo! Today I woke up and felt a big hard ball in my lower stomach.
I forgot that feeling. It went away after about 10 minutes but it
totally brings back flashbacks of last pregnancy. Its crazy how you
forget things so quickly!

This week...

I have been watching Brauns little sister Breann while her parents have been on Trek all week. It has been really nice to have a live in babysitter! :) We have had lots of fun and this week has been really busy for a change. I feel MUCH better this week. Back to feeling like I am not pregnant anymore besides being super tired! I should be out of the sickness phase now which is nice too!
Last week we did a lot of this...

This week, I got Em and Breann all ready and we went swimming! There is a fun pool by our house and we went there for 5 hours! I was planning on being there for like 2 but I think I forgot that I had an 11 year old with me that even after 5 hours wanted to stay longer! I forgot to sunscreen my back too :( Yep, thats been a little painful!


Hanging out at the carwash!

A few nights ago, I did a bunch of glitter toes for my mom, sisters, Breann and some friends! It was really fun.. I sure do love this stuff. I forgot to respond to some of you guys when you asked how to do them. It is a whole system of stuff and you have to be a Nail Tech/Cosmetologist to buy it. Sorry... it is really fun stuff so call me and we can do it on you!! It is supposed to stay on for 8 weeks but I can't have the same color on for that long. It would drive me nuts! I redid my gold and this is whats on there now! I love it!

Okay.. I have been really wanting to get Emery a little pool for our backyard that she can play in while I weed or plant flowers and stuff. So.. I go to Wal Mart and get this little frog pool. In the picture it looked a heck of a lot bigger than the frog pool that is now sitting in my backyard. Are you kidding me? It said it was good for children up to 3. Look at Em in this piece of junk! It is totally for like a 6 month old. Cute though, right? Oh and please don't mind the mop on her head. We haven't really done her hair this week very much.

I babysat my little niece Kendall last night. She is so stinkin' cute. Remember her from this picture?
Well this is her now! Isn't she adorable?? Her hair gets more red everyday. I just love it!
We played on the playground for awhile last night. She is such a busy body! She wouldn't look at me and so this is the picture you get!

Kendall is quite the snuggler. She will fall asleep while you are holding her. Emery would NEVER do that. I took advantage and let Kendall sleep with me last night. I got kicked in the head all night, but she sure is cute now!

I went in for my 3 month appointment yesterday.. everything is going great! I sure do like my new doctors here in AF. They have done ultrasounds everytime I have gone in. I hated when my last doctor only did the one at 5 months. It was so crazy to see how much the little one in there has changed in just a month. You could see the head and little arms and belly.. it was cute. I think the doctor managed to get the absolute worst picture that could of been taken though. It is a blurry ball. I was really suprised to find out that instead of gaining about 10 pounds like I been thinking, I had actually lost 3 pounds! Must of threw it all up last week.. There was never a time last pregnancy where I had lost even a pound! Melanie likes to remind me of the time where I was on bedrest for a week and gained 9 pounds. Yes.. 9 pounds in 1 week! That was depressing. Thanks Mel for being so kind to help me remember details like that! :) Just kiddin! I hope to be a little more cautious this time around. I didn't gain too much last time but I still could of done better!

Have a fun week! I am not sure when I will be blogging next.. I am sure I will do a lot of blogging from my phone though. North Carolina.. here I come!! Hopefully I will take a lot more real pictures from my good camera. I am really starting to get irritated that all of my pictures now come from my iPhone. So I am going to try and fix that! :)

ChaCha....

So apparently some of you don't know what ChaCha is! I just learned about it the other night and have been obsessed ever since! Okay.. think of a question..ANY question. Get your phone and text 242242 (chacha) you will get a response back from a real live person. For example, last night.. I was really REALLY bored. I am going to Charlotte, NC next week and was wondering what to do there. So I asked..

Me: What should I do in Charlotte NC next week?
ChaCha:Next Friday in Charlotte is Gold Panning Day. You can also go on a Charlotte Wine Tour or see Dinosaurs Attack! at the IMAX.

Me: What is the highest paying profession in America?
ChaCha:Person responsible for sedating patients before surgery. Anestheseiologists $184,340 year average. Wow! ChaCha Soon :)

Me: What should I eat for dinner tonight?
ChaCha: I am enjoying a Big Mac right now. Just got off of work. You can do that too, or just throw together a sandwich from home. ChaCha!

and this list goes on and on and on! I asked them random questions for over an hour! It would of been longer but my phone died and I didn't want to get off the couch! :)I told you I was bored! So next time you are bored.. ChaCha away! You get a random person answering your questions everytime and they get paid $.20 for every question they answer! It is really fun!

Oops!

This was the right picture to post!

Picture for the Day!

You Went WHERE?????

Last night was a BLAST!! It all started with dinner at Flemings down at the Gateway. Braun had meetings all day at the Grand America and so Missy and I just drove down there to meet up with our husbands for dinner. It was really yummy! I got SOOO uncomfortably full but it was so worth it :) I love steak and garlic mashed potatoes!! Oh and the Creme Brulee was amazing too! If you haven't been there, you need to go!

(I will explain Brauns shirt later!)
I will let this next picture explain the nights events!

Yep.. you read that right. Platinum rented out Classic Skating for all of us. It was so fun. I haven't roller skated in YEARS! I was horrible but thats okay. I didn't fall once though! Here are some funny pictures...
Missy and Morgan putting on their fun boots!

Chance! (Who by the way, had some pretty sweet skating skills!)


Morgan Me and Missy!

John and Jason!

Oh Watch Out!

Me, Dani, Morgan, Emmie and Missy sitting on the sidelines..

Okay, now I will explain the shirts. While we were sitting down eating a nice dinner, Jeremy and Keith walk in with a bunch of old school shirts from Urban Outfitters. They found the funniest ones and whatever was on them fit each guy perfectly!!

"Taraun"

Meet Taraun... Isn't she/he lovely?
DSC_0676.JPG and IMG_0041_1053.JPG Faces Combined Together -
I am not sure what is going on with the teeth but it sure is gross!

"BooB"

Well, for about the past 6 days I have been stuck on the couch. I don't know why it took me so long to get sick, but it all caught up with me! My doctor got me on some good medicine which seems to help except at nights. I still throw up, but eh.. a little baby will be worth it right?? So basically what I am getting at is that not a lot has gone on this past week. I have still had time to take some pictures on my iPhone though! Which by the way.. have you all heard the news about the new iPhone?? It is only going to be $199!!! It is about half as thick and will come in black or white. Oh Braun wants a new one so bad.. I guess the internet is going to be super quick. For example, it takes 59 seconds to load a National Geographic page on the ones we have now and on the newer ones it will take 21 seconds. I sure wish they would of come out with one that has the capability to video chat with other iPhone users. How sweet would that be? Well.. I guess I will just have to dream a little longer. Anyone know anyone that wants the 1st Generation iPhones?? :)
Enough Techy talk.. I used to say that there was no way in heck that my little girl would wear anything with a "Character" on it. (Dora the Explorer, Cinderella, Etc.) Well, she was being a nightmare at the mall and so we decided to go in the Disney Store. She is OBSESSED with "Ella" and so she was in heaven. She wanted everything from there. I found a "Ella" and "Mermay" Barbie and knew she had to have them! She carries them everywhere and loves her new Ella Jammies. Here is a pic!

At one of my many naps this week, I let Diesel join me. My dogs have been absolutely driving me crazy and they know it. One day Diesel tried to kiss up and snuggle and here he is.. Not one of his greatest angles..

This picture is much better.. haha! This was taken during a bath!

Speaking of strange looking dogs.. have you guys ever seen this dog? He was crowned "The Worlds UGLIEST Dog" His name is Sam. Poor Guy!

Okay now onto something funny! Last week, Emery was bored and playing in her wipes container. She stands up and is trying to put them down her shirt. I didn't really understand what she was doing but it was keeping her entertained and so I figured she was fine. Well she stands up and looks at me with about 10 wipes down her shirt and goes "BOOB!" I was laughing so hard! She has some strange obsession with boobs. The first thing she does to my sister and mom when she sees them is pulls out their shirts and goes "BOOB."

I will leave you with one last picture of my growing belly! I got on the scales yesterday and am happy to report that I haven't even gained a pound! Yay.. I think by this time last pregnancy I had already gained about 6 or 7. Looks like the weight is just shifting places! Ooh and guess what else?? I am going to find out what this little baby in me is in about 2 weeks! Thanks to Jaceys Dad who is an ultrasound man :) Any guesses?? I think its a boy!

Have a fun Monday!! I will come back sometime and post about Fathers Day!

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Dear...

Kara, Jacey, Brittany, Joslyn, Melanie and Felisha!

(Mags and Casey.. I am not forgetting you guys, just have already came out there!)

I am trying to decide when to come and visit you all! I really have been wanting to come out sooner but I haven't known if I was going to feel good or krappy! One more week and I am out of the first trimester, so hopefully that means I will be out of the sick phase too! So this post is for you girls.. are any of you going to be leaving to come back home, family coming out there, or going on any vacations that will make it so you can't hang out with me while I am out there?? :) I will plan my trips around your schedules!!

Love you all!


Edited to ADD!! I should probably also say that I am of course coming out when Braun is.. so that will factor in as well! Braun will probably come to each of your offices at least another 2 or 3 times.. so I gotta get his schedule too! Gosh this is rough! :) BUT FUN!!

At Mel's request!!

Melanie,

I am super sorry for not updating my blog for a few days. Please forgive me and still take care of my husband while he is in St. Louie.

Love,

Tara

Ha! Just kidding Mel! I did think your message was funny though! Okay... so nothing, and I really mean nothing has gone on this week. Wanna hear why? Well, I have told so many people that I have been feeling great this pregnancy and really, all in all, it has been great. Well, this week has been crappy CRAPPY!! I should of been knocking on wood all those times I said that I haven't even felt pregnant because they all came around and kicked my trash this week. Aren't you supposed to feel better the further along you get? Sheesh.. anyway, enough complaining from me! Hopefully today will be a better day! (Although it is 6:54 AM and I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep.. great way to start off the day right?)

Lets talk about last week cause it was a lot more fun! Well... I have been hearing about these "Glitter Toes" for a little while and I decided I HAD to go and get them done. I got a little group of girls together and we went! Melanie was in town and so she got to come too! I hired my first neighbor girls to come and babysit Em and Madden which was really cute!

Here is the group! From Left to Right.. Missy, Me, Melanie, Danica and Brooke!
We got them done at a cute little salon in American Fork.. maybe its Lehi. I am not sure.. Danica brought us some cute cupcakes. They were so yummy. You all know how I hate when someone orders or eats something better than me. Well, Melanie got a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting cupcake. Of course I had to have a bite and holy smokes.. was it amazing?? Yes! Was Melanie nice enough to share? YEP! Thanks Mel!


Melanie and I.. I am not quite sure what was so funny??????????? Oh wait.. yes I do!

After we regained our composure!

And our toes! The fun thing about this stuff is it lasts 6-8 weeks and is so super sparkly! After we left, I decided I needed to learn how to do it. I went and got everything I needed to learn and I was taught how! Anyone want some glitter toes?? Call me! I am going to try and do Em's today.. Wish me luck!
Click on this picture and it will really zoom into the sparklies!!!!!

Thanks girls for an awesome day!!

3 Years Ago!!

It was pretty much the same weather as yesterday plus a lot more rain and a little more frigidness! It was still a great day! This is what was going on.....



Yep.. yesterday was our 3 year anniversary! It was really fun. We got to spend the day together just the 2 of us! I went and picked him up from the airport around 11:30 and we went and got some lunch. At 2, we went to our favorite little Japanese massage place. It is called The Kura Door It is a really great atmosphere. Braun and I love it. It is up in the avenues in SLC. I think everyone should go there once, but I warn you... You will be hooked! Braun was really wanting a pedicure and they couldn't get us in for one and so we searched for a pedicure place on his GPS. The closest was called Happy Nails. Why is it that all Chinese Nail Salons are called "(Something) Nails" Happy, Great, Fresh, etc.. get my point? Well.. we park along the street and I see Braun in there in just a regular chair. (Oh I forgot to mention that Braun was the only one getting a pedicure. I had gotten one earlier this week..pictures to come soon!) I didn't know his pedicure had started until I walked in and saw this...

Braun was able to get a AWESOME pedicure.. haha! I was trying not to laugh at him the whole time. Notice how he is sitting on an office chair. We gave better pedicures than that in hair school!

After his pedicure, we went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. It was yummy! The service is fabulous and the food is to die for! Especially the mashed potatoes. I could of ate the whole bowl.
They bring you your steak and it is sizzling in butter. Yummy.. probably not the healthiest, but totally worth it!



If you go, get the Apple Crisp Tart for dessert! It is fabulous!


After we headed over to Gateway and saw a few movies... yes, we hadn't gone to any for a while and so we saw 2! When we were walking to the theater, I had to stop and get a pic in front of this sign. Yes, a movie all about Chihuahuas. I need to see it!

Here is Braun pretending to be Cruella Deville..

Anyway, we had a great day! It was a lot of fun.. it was so nice to be able to see my husband for once this summer. And no, he didn't get to take a day off. He had to leave a day earlier just so he could spend the day with me! Thanks hunny! I don't want anyone to think he is slacking!

We have had a great 3 years together! Braun is the best husband ever.I just love him so much for all that he does for our little family! He is such a amazing dad to our little Em. You're the best Braun!!
