You've had a BIRTHDAY shout HURRAY!!

Well the hubster turned 27 years old yesterday!! Wow.. he is getting up there. Haha :) We celebrated with some "almost" breakfast in bed by yours truly. (I say ALMOST because I slept in a little bit and he woke up first!) We had some yummy crepes with strawberries, bananas, HOMEMADE whipping cream (easiest thing ever to make but I never have, so I was proud of myself!) and cinnamon and sugar. Emery and I sang to him at least 20 times before he left for work. :( Poor guy. Who wants to work a 12 hour day on your birthday?? Later that night, we had a bunch of friends over for some Hawaiian Haystacks and cake&ice cream!

Making a wish!

Emery spitting--I mean BLOWING out the candles!

I hope you had a fantastic birthday Braun!! We sure do love ya!

Free Jamba!!

Save this to your computer and print it out. Sheesh-- I've become quite the couponER lately! I even used one at Target last night! GO ME!

P.S. The 30% off sale at Gap, Old Navy and Banana started today!!

Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic are having that 30% sale on your WHOLE purchase again!! It works online and at their outlet stores today July 30th- August 2nd!:) I have 25 coupons that I can send out. If you want one, leave me your email!!

Oh and you can use the coupon multiple times at all the stores! WAHOOOOO! :)

Another reason I want to go to Europe:

Have you guys heard about the Velib‘??

All over Paris (and a lot of other European cities!) you can rent bikes belonging to the city. You ride it to your next destination and put it in another stall.. rent another one and take it to another drop off point.. get it?? You pay a yearly fee of $25 Euros. Is that a lot? I don't have a clue. Wouldn't that be so fun though?! What a good way to help get rid of a few french fries stuck to your butt! :)

While I was back in Utah, I went and rode around Daybreak with Braun's family! It was INCREDIBLE up there to say the least!

It made me want a bike...AND a bike trailor. The girls LOVED riding around in it. I just gave Em some cheese and crackers and Anisten some of her little chewy toys and they had a blast! It was quite the workout pulling that thing too! Hmm... maybe Braun and I will invest in something like that when we get back! Any opinions on a good trailor? Ooh and bikes.. I don't have any idea about those either. I used to have the best "Huffy" on the block back in the day! :) :)

Anisten has to show you something!!


So last week I was giving Braun some krap for not lining the toilet
seats when he goes to the bathroom at church. (More for Emerys sake
when and if he takes her potty!) He says he covers it everywhere else
but not at church because "church toilet seats don't get dirty cause
they're at church!" I say bologna to that! Anyway, I got a pic message
from him one day that says.."Hows this??" and a text that said "It
provided great padding as well!" I laughed so hard.

Silly Braun!

Hello Kitty Hospital

This story is just too good to be true... I'm OBSESSED!!!

Taiwan has just opened up its very first Hello Kitty Maternity Hospital. How crazy is that?!

Imagine arriving at a hospital in crazy pain and being greeted by nurses and doctors dressed in Hello Kitty gear, not to mention the rooms being completely decorated with Hello Kitty accessories. I think I would be so HAPPY that I would forget all about the pain!!!

Happy Pioneer Day, Utah!

I sure miss getting to celebrate Pioneer day with the rest of Utah during the summer while we are (usually) out of state! So this summer... the girls and I had our own celebration. (Most of us) got in our Red, Whites and Blues and all gathered by the river for a picnic! Here are some pictures to prove it.

Kels made a delicious fruit pizza!! :) Mmm.. fruit pizzas are YUMMY! If ya need a great recipe, this one is fantastic!
Me and Kelsie..
Kara, Denielle and McKenzie!! :) Kara is looking fabulous at 39.9999 weeks pregnant!!
Me and my girlies.
Impossible to get a good shot of all 3 of us...
Look at Anisten's cute little grin! :)
After we left, I tried to get a good shot of the 2 of them in their Red, Whites and Blues.. but that didn't happen.. Dang. Maybe next year!!

Emery just LOVES giving Anisten hugs and kisses.. don't mind her little pony undies!

Well, I sure hope you all had a great 24th! We sure did. Now I've just got to get through today and I get to see Braun all day tomorrow! :) WAHOOOOO!

Soo.. while I was back home, I decided I wanted to make a quilt. Like a quilt that you QUILT??!! Make sense?? I have made plenty of blankets before (where you just sew around the edges.. easy peasy!) Well, when I got back, I picked out 12 1/2 yard pieces of my favorite colors. Pink, Green and Brown, oh and a little cream too.

I am about 6 weeks late on starting along with THIS group of people, but I am so excited to be making it!

I got all of my strips cut during one of Anisten's naps..

And sewed all of them together during a few more naps..
Now it's time to iron and cut up all of my strips into squares and sew again!! Oh gosh, I am loving it. So much time to just sit there and sort through all of my thoughts. This could be REALLY addicting. Uh ho!! :)
I can't wait to share the finished product! :)

I LOVE this...

Isn't that just so dang cute??! I seriously had happy tears while I watched this! Soo funny and cute!

Wish ME luck!!!

Oh please, make it STOP!!! We are heading back to MN tonight to see
Braun! Wahoo:) Say a little prayer for me that these lovely ladies
will cheer up for the sake of me and the whole plane!

Dolly Diapers!

Do your little girls LOVE to play mommy to their dolls?? Emery LOVES it!! I can't wait to go back to Minnesota and make some of these for her. I have been crocheting edges of dolly blankets (a little upgrade from the dish towels she's been using!!) while I have been here in Utah, and this will be another cute thing she will love!

Go HERE for the tutorial.

{AT LAST!!!}

Hey Hey Hey!

Well we made it to Utah. The flight wasn't too bad. We had this grandma sitting next to us and Em sat on her lap for half the flight. She was such a nice lady and was asking to help with everything!! Now lets cross our fingers for the flight back :) We got in really late the first night and didn't get to bed until 3AM. The kids woke back up at 7 the next morning. Now THAT was a LONG day! We have been enjoying the fantastic Utah summer days (and even better--THE NIGHTS!!) Aww.. How I love it here in the summer! No muggy-ness, my hair stays straight and doesn't frizz into a ball, family, friends & familiar faces, not using On-Star everywhere I go, my HOUSE, Oh I just love it! Really.. its awesome to live in Utah.

So, since I am not on my computer, I don't have any pictures to share.. but here is a cool one I just saw on the internet!! Seriously, how AWESOME is this?? I want it.

Oh and one more thing, I have been REALLY bad at accepting Private Peoples blog invites. It's not that I don't want to.. I always check email, blogs, etc. from my when I get a blog invite, I want to make sure I mark it as "PRIVATE" on my side bar so I know to check it (since it won't update in my google reader) Well, I end up just forgetting and then the invite expires. I have done it to SOOO many invites, I promise if you send it to me ONE MORE TIME... I will be sure to accept!!

So PRETTTY PLEASE will you send it again?? My email is tarathueson {at} gmail {dot} com!
and if you do have a private blog and didn't invite me before, send me an invite too!

Thanks again.. P.S. My blog has been so boring lately. I am sorry, summer is busy busy!
