I'll never understand some people. If you're my family or a true friend, then you are one who accepts me for who am I no matter how crazy. And if you don't agree with something I've done, you bring it to my face, not go gossiping about me to my mother on her lunch break in front of your fellow co-workers. What does that say about you? It says a lot. True family stands behind you, they don't tear you down. I may not agree with a lot of my family members and what they say or do, but I still love & support them. But if you're going to trash me to my family and in front of co-workers, then fuck you. I'm done with you.

And that, is that.

Want My Computer Back

I have to admit, I really miss typing out my blogs on a computer. Takes forever on this damn iPhone and I can't edit them the way I want...grrrr.

As I wait for its return, I in the meantime have been reading. I've stopped reading my Nicholas Sparks book and moved on to the hunger games. I'm at ch 5 and so far it's not too bad. It's a rather simple read, as it was written for the younger generation. I've caught myself not wanting to put the darn thing down. But I think I just want to finish the book in record time...for me anyways.

I've also noticed that I've become a total coffee snob in the past few weeks. Me and Starbucks have become pretty close. I've also noticed that I prefer to drink my coffee from a solo brand cardboard cup with lid then a normal coffee mug. I went so far as to buy the Dixie brand at Menards. Just makes me feel like I should be in a coffee shop or something...ha ha I'm such a nerd.

Flashback Friday

I know it's flashback Friday but since I am on my phone...there won't be one today.

So last weekend I took my computer to my brothers friend, Dustin. He's like a brother to me & he's great with computers. He actually wrote me this morning and told me he figured out what was wrong with my laptop!! Thank Buddha! He said he can fix it all for $60. I was pretty satisfied with that. As much as I would love to buy a whole new computer all together, I can't. Mostly because I want a MacBook and they cost a BUTT-TON!!!

Oh well, I will soon have my computer back and working, which is all I ask for.

Last night I decided to weigh William and my word! Baby boy is over 12lbs! He's still on the short side but fits pretty well into 3-6 month clothes. He's much bigger then what Colby ever was. Colby has always. Been on the smile side, but that's ok! He'll grow!

We won't be taking William back to the dr until he's 4 months old...does that seem weird? I swear we went every month with Colby but maybe I'm just having brain farts...?

Anyway, not too much else going on....oh yes! I'm thinking about starting another blog. It would be really random but I'm really want something to just bitch about something lol. We'll see.

I may not be catholic, but I'm gonna try giving something up this year. I think I'm going to give up red meat. It seems easy enough, but this lil lady loves her steak!

Last night we had pork chops and I think Ray was pretty happy with it. We don't have chops too often so it's a good change from the hamburger we have all the time. The bad thing is that we'd have to go 25 miles to get ground turkey or pork. That's dumb, but there are turkey burgers down here. Maybe I'll make a run to Walmart today & get some groceries.

Just Want Some Sleep

For whatever reason, Will decided that he didn't want to go to sleep last night...grrrr. I wasn't too thrilled going to be at 9:30 and waking up by 12. Not cool lil man! Oh well, I think it's just from being in a different house with different people and my parents house is rather cool...so those all could be factors.

As tired as I am, I decided it's not worth going back to bed. I'm too awake now.

iPhone4s baby!
Yesterday my mother and I went to Lincoln so I could get my new phone...FINALLY! To start off, we didn't realize that the old store had moved their location. Luckily they only moved across the street into a bigger building so we caught it before we had to go to another location.

So we go into the Verizon store and there was quite a line. So we checked in and decided to just browse the phones for a little bit. I wanted to make sure that the iPhone was what I wanted. They did have some other phones by Samsung and HTC that had really nice big screens, but over all, I just didn't like them. So after about 10-15 minutes, the sales guy came and got us and right away I said, I want the iPhone4s. And within about 10 minutes I got the phone, the case that I wanted and a few other accessories like a charger, screen protecter and ear phones. --I actually got the bundle so I got those 3 extra things for only $30--

The sales guy was really nice. He wasn't a complete d-bag like some of the people I've had to deal with before. I think a lot of that was because I actually knew what I wanted. I didn't sit there and have him explain the difference between 8 million different phones. Basically he was saying the iPhone is the easiest phone to have. It's really basic and doesn't involve a lot of outside crap to go through. Which I'm glad because I'm TERRIBLE with phones.

I really LOVE the case that I picked out...even tho it is purple lol. It's from the Uncommon brand (I guess?) Here's a pic of it..

For whatever reason, this case stood out to me. They had a few other really cute ones, but this one seems pretty cool.

The reason for the case is the fact that these phones, if dropped, are basically done for. The sales guy was telling us that he's never seen a phone shatter like that. I guess I just have to be extra careful with this phone because I know I always seem to drop my phone atleast once in a lifetime of having it.

Also, gotta be careful that the boys don't get to it. Since Colby really doesn't understand when we tell him that something could break and he needs to be more careful. We're still working on that one.

This is the case that my mother wanted me to get. As "neat" as it is, it really hurts my eyes after a while. I wante something that I knew I could tolerate for a long period of time and this one, was NOT it.

They also had a few that were pink that I thought looked kind of cool, but to be honest, I'm not a "pink" kind of girl. I say that and I do own so many damn clothes that are pink, but it's just...idk. Pink is waaayyy too girly for me, and I'm not a girly girl. I'm a football lovin' momma. Purple seems to be atleast girly but not so girly that it screams "I'M A 6 YEAR OLD!!" I'm also pretty sure that Ray wouldn't be as embarrassed to use the phone with the cover I did get. But he may not even try to attempt to use my phone...never know. He just got a new flip phone which I suppose he is happy with.

The only real downside that I have about this phone (so far) is that it is a bit on the heavy side. But I've had pretty heavy phones before. The screen is on the "smaller" side compared to some of the touchscreen smart phones that are out there, but I don't care. I'm pretty happy with this phone. I haven't figured out how to download music to it yet, but I think I may just wait. Since I've bought the phone, I've download 20 apps already lol. Pretty much all of them are something that I check on the computer or that I use everyday. I've only downloaded 2 games...I'm not really big on games.

Anyway, that's my day yesterday.

Just A Short Update

It's been about a week or so since I last posted anything on here. My computer has been acting up so I am at my parents house with it waiting to take it in to my brothers best friend tomorrow to have him fix it...I hope.

Anyway, there really hasn't been a whole lot going on with me lately. Like I said, I'm at my parents house for the weekend. I will be getting a new phone tomorrow...yey!!! :) I think I'm just going to get the iPhone4s. My mother keeps hounding me on which phone I'm going to be getting and the answer is always the same...and she says "the iPhone or the smartphone?"...oh mother. Somethings I worry about you.

Flashback Friday
Since it is Flashback Friday and I'm able to get some pictures up on the computer, thought I would share them :)

This lovely picture was from......oh geez......maybe the 2nd or 3rd grade??..Maybe?? I really don't remember. This was me and a group of girls up at the high school doing the dance team workshop. Each group would learn a dance and perform it for their parents. We also had one big performance done by everyone. Man...I think I did this every year until I was too old to do it.

As you can see, I was just a scrony little thing, with very white chicken legs. lol I refused to have bangs for a good portion of my life, so of course that makes my forehead look gigantic! What's funny is I think all the girls in my group are who I graduated with from high school. haha!

For whatever reason, I just LOVE this picture. haha. Yes, that is a keg. Yes it is hanging from a brick wall, and yes, it is outside. haha. It's actually a mailbox :) I was with a big group of my family members when we stumbled across this little baby...I also had a few drinks, but that's besides the point. I get a little sad when I see this picture because I am wearing my FAVORITE jeans. --that I will NEVER fit back into-- This was taken in March of 2007. Crazy to look at these and see how skinny I was. And all the stuff that I used to do to my hair! haha.

On a side note, before I met Ray, I honestly used to tan almost every day, get my nails done every 2 weeks and would get my hair colored every 3-4 months. haha I'm lucky if I can get my hair cut & colored once or twice a year! hahaha.

Here is another picture from of basically the same thing, but with my bestie cousin, Laura.

We were trying to drink from it...or atleast waiting to see if beer would flow from it.

Alright, that's enough flashback friday for one night :) haha.

Babies Babies Babies!
Alright, so Thursday (Feb. 16) morning, Ray's sister-in-law had her baby. Kasten Edward 8lbs 2.1oz 20 in long. He's super adorable. --but to be honest, I'm really unsure about their name choice....Kasten??....I've looked all over...haven't found the meaning of it yet.--

And then, tonight my grandma called my mother and told her that my cousin Jessie had her baby at 3:10 this morning!! YEY!! Sofia Luella 6lbs 11oz. I saw her picture on facebook and she is just adorable!! (not sure if she has red hair like Jessie's husband, but we will find out soon enough!)

Alright, I think that is about it for me tonight. I think tomorrow I may try to figure out a way to change my background on my blog...unsure. I may just leave it because I'm too lazy to work on it.

William's 2 Months Old!

Can't believe how fast time is going! William is already 2 months old! It's just crazy. So, like I've been promising, here are a few cute pictures of my little man.

Goofy Grin

such a little chunk!

 Ain't he just the cutest?? hehe. I'm really surprised that he has kept all his hair. Colby lost a lot of his baby hair, but you would have never guessed it. It was just around the hairline. But he's got such a thick mop now, you would never guess the kid had much thinner hair.

Flashback Friday
Alright, so I decided to join in on Flashback Friday. I don't really have too many old pictures from when I was really young, but this one is from New Years 2007...going to be 2008.

It's crazy to look at this picture and see how small my boobs were. Also, I was rather pasty...eww. But I think I look alright. This was at one of the local bars in Seward. That's my friend, Amy. Ray actually took this picture of us.

LOL...awww yes, the wonderful trips out to walmart. For whatever reason, my best friend, Jenn and I would go on random trips out to walmart and really, just for the hell of it, we would ride the smallest bike we could find. I have rather loong legs, so be shocked that I actually was riding this bad boy all over the toy section lol. --still can't believe how thin that I was. I'm wearing my favorite Silver jeans size 28...le sigh--

Saturday Night Live
Tonight, is the night!! My former classmate Amy & her fiancee Nick, will be on SNL! (not the Amy from the picture above) O.M.G. Seriously, I am freaking out like a little kid. For a new artist, SNL is a BIIIIIGGGG deal. And I can't wait to see them on!

I will say tho, it's still a little odd for me to see her with such dark hair. Before she went to college, she was always a blonde. So to see her with the color change was a real shocker, but she pulls it off really well.

Everyone should be watching tonight!! If you do, please! let me know what you think :) Be sure to follow Karmin on Twitter (@karminmusic).

Champagne Champagne
Since I've gotten my tax return, I've spent a small $300 chunk of my $4600 return. I decided to spoil myself and buy a little bit of a pricey champagne. I have to admit, the only reason that I bought this particular bottle was because it's what the girls on Sex and the City drink all the time. It's called Veuve Cliequol. It also cost me $45 dollars. So this shit better taste amazing!

Thanks to the movie Failure To Launch, Champagne Thursday have been really great! --I truely believe everyone should enjoy this day, as it can come twice in a week--

Well...my life is extremely boring so I guess I'm done. There is a lot more coming up this month with meetings and dr apointments and what not, but really, my life is faaarrr from interesting.

--News Flash--

Whitney Houston dies at 48.

WOW....it has been a good while since I have gotten to blog. Stupid computer!

Anyway, much has been going on lately. I have finally gotten my tax return back and I couldn't be more happy. I've already bought a few things for the house and can't wait to buy more! I bought the 2 bookcases that I wanted. The 4 shelf one, we already have put together and full of our movies. The 5 shelf one won't be put together yet until I get a few other things. (I need to move some stuff around before I can have the bookcase where I want it. I then bought a new lamp for the living room and bought my big mirror that I've been wanting for YEARS now. (Family Dollar has giant mirrors for $20! Great deal if you ask me)

Susie Singer
Also with all these things, I also managed to buy a sewing machine. I'm actually pretty excited about it. I took a sewing class back when I was about...oh, 12 or 13 maybe?? Possibly 11. And I haven't really used a sewing machine since....but now that I have kids, I think it is seriously time that I get back into the swing of things and reteach myself how to sew. I'm also going to learn to knit and crochet (sp?). I need something that is considered "mine" again. I mean, I can't sit and read books forever, but I want to teach myself something!

Now, I didn't run to the store and buy a brand new sewing machine. I had planned on doing this, but when I mentioned to one of my co-worker friends that I was looking into them, she offered to sell me one of hers. They are moving and need to downsize. So for $50 dollars I got a machine, the instructions, some pins and a case...and a few little things. But all in all, it was a good buy. I can't wait to fire this thing up :)

I can't believe how much William has been growing! I weighed him on the 4th, and he was 11lbs 4oz. (This is with clothes & clean diaper on) Then today, (the 7th) I weighed him and he wa 12lbs on the dot!!! My baby boy is growing so fast! I can't believe how much weight he has gained! He will be 2 months on Friday and he goes to the dr on Monday. Can't wait to see how much he has gained in that amount of time. (Just remember, I weigh him by weighing myself then weighing him with me and subtracting to get the difference. Clothes will make all the difference with this when we go to the dr)

I know I haven't posted many pictures on my blog latey....my computer has been a pain and I can't get things to load. Hopefully on Friday I'll be able to post Will's 2 month picture!

No Show
Well, today Betty Jo was supposed to come to the house. She was supposed to be here ar 1. Well....it's almost 3 o'clock and still no word from BJ. I am a little worried that maybe something happened since it did manage to snow last night, but I'm pretty sure someone would have called to give us the news by now. Oh well, the house looks like complete crap right now, so her not coming doesn't really bother me too much.

Giants All The Way!
I was right. Did anyone listen to me?? Nooooooo, of course they didn't. I told them, the Giants are going to win the SuperBowl. Did anyone believe me? No. Everyone doubted me and "booed" me on my facebook for cheering on the Giants. But guess what?? THE GIANTS WON BABY!!! YEA!!! I really just want to write on their walls and say "EAT IT!" haha. But I won't. All my friends are sore losers and can't lose with grace. **eye roll**

Anything else??....Hmmmm....I still have not bought myself a new phone...I'm getting pretty pissed off about it actually. As I'm writing this, my phone is out in my car charging because Colby decided to EAT through my wall charger. And as you know, you can't find chargers for OLD phones anymore. Did I mention there is snow on the ground?? Colby did finally get to use his snow boots today! He went outside to help Ray scoop the walk. I think he enjoyed himself!

Pretty sure there is not much else to say. Colby of course has been acting out...as always. He really does drive me up a wall. I love him, I really do. I just don't understand why he does some of the things that he does. He still chews on pretty much EVERYTHING. I mean, he destroyed a chapstick because he chewed on the lid, got it off and chewed on the stick....really child?

I will say, that I am very proud of myself. William is 8 weeks old (almost 2 months) and I am STILL breastfeeding. :) YEY! ~happy dance~ I'm rather shocked that I have made it this far to be completely honest. Breastfeeding is not the easiest thing in the world, and to have made it this long already, I'm really impressed with myself. I only made it about 5 weeks with Colby. I think if I made it to 3 months, I'm going to reward myself. With what? I'm unsure. But I will find something.

Oh yes, Ray's nephew will be here next week Thursday! YEY!! Feb. 16 will be a busy day for us!
