This is my first time participating in Dear So and So...
Should be interesting!
Dear Rylee Grace,
I am sorry you had a bad dream last night, it makes me sad. It really made me sad that it was at 4:30 am and I had to get up at 6. I do enjoy sharing the bed with you though while you comb through my hair saying "petty" (pretty). You're sweet and I love you very much!
Dear Volleyball Crew,
Last night was a lot of fun. Although we lost, we came together as a team and worked hard. I will throw in there that I was the only person on the team to get all my serves over and in! Boo ya!
Dear Tuesdays & Thursdays,
You guys are my favorite days of the week. You're not long enough and I want more. Tuesdays are full of my favorite T.V. shows and Thursdays are volleyball nights, bring me more!!
You are so history.
Bring on the snow. We bought a lot of food last night with all the other maniacs out there so I'm ready to be snowed in! My luck, we won't have any.
We will get that iPhone figured out! It will become your very best friend! I named my Natasha, she drowned in the toilet twice but she is a trooper!
I hope you're all having a great week so far! I know I am. Yesterday I was stuck at home because we had snow and ice come in over night so NO school or work WOO HOO!! I finally got video uploaded tonight and some pictures too!
I was pretty excited to go back to school but dang I didn't think it would take almost all of my time! I miss blogging, it's sad (boo hoo). But I am going to try and keep up and be around more! Hope you guys enjoy Rylee's lastest stomping dance, her new one man band, and her "prettttty" pictures.
This weekend I made some french toast, but not just any french toast, my great grandma's recipe. She used to make the BEST french toast when I was a kid. I would spend summers with her and we could cook all the time. She made the word's best pancakes, cookies, french toast, eggs, pretty much everything she cooked was fantastic. So I called her last weekend and got the recipe for the toast and made it. It was pretty good, not like hers but still good!! I included pictures of my process...
You need bread, milke, eggs, cinnamon, sugar, and a bowl to mix it all in.
Whip the eggs and milk together. I used 4 eggs and made about 6 pieces of frensh toast.
Soak the bread on both sides.
Spray your pan with No-Stick spray and turn it on medium heat.
I have been so busy lately that I have totally ignored my blog!! I feel so bad! School started Tuesday so I've been working later then going to get Rylee then going straight home to cook and get ready for bed. Busy busy week. But anyway, here are a couple of pictures I took this week that I'm getting around to put up. Also, enjoy the videos of my wild child!!
Rylee at dinner the other night decided that she was going to take her plate (full of food) and put it on her head! She is umm...creative!??! Gotta love her!
The Hawk-Mullet!! Bet you have never seen one of these before!! Rylee rocks the mullet and now the mohawk! She's hard core :)
For some reason Rylee loves to take all my hair products out of the basket in the bathroom and put them in front of her t.v. while she watches Barney. I'll find bottles of hair products all over the house. It's like a game to her!
Sometimes you just need a girls night, and that is what Sally & I had last weekend. Nothing exciting, I just went to her house and hung out for a little bit. Good ole Sally!
Best friends forever! Rylee crawls on the couch when Bella is up there and lays with her while they watch movies. Bella loves Rylee, and I love that!
Hey guys!! It's Thursday and time for Just For The Joy Of It!! I love these posts!
Just for the joy of it....
I watched Bad Girls Club on On-Demand last night because it makes me happy.
I peeked around the corner to watch Rylee play alone in her room and hear all the funny things she is trying to say.
I am starting the winter league of vollebyall tonight.
I cleaned my apartment from top to bottom yesterday because I love the way a home feels after it's cleaned and a nice candle is burning.
Let me throw in a little side note, today has not been, let's say "smooth". Well actually it started Tuesday when I lost my phone charger. I still think my daughter took it and has it somewhere and I will probably find it next month. So I have been borrowing Casy's charger, big ups girl!! So last night I realized my iPod dock also charges your phone...DUH! So I put my phone on there all night, bad idea. My dock went off for some CRAZY reason and my phone died. So the two alarms I set on my phone and the two alarms I set on my dock did not go off. I got up at 6:47 am, I have to leave the house at 7 to get to work on time. I jump up and attempt to get ready. I have the nappy look going on today. Get to work and lock my keys in my car. Get another key cut at the Ford dealership down the road, luckily it was free. That is the third time I have done that in 4 months and I have only owned the car 4 months.
On top of that, my sister's boss bought her two tickets to go see Brad Paisley, Miranda Lamber, and Justin Moore, with MEET & GREET! I wasn't invited. :(
Yesterday at 4:53 p.m. an earthquake hit Haiti, a 7.0. It rocked everything there. The prime minister estimates around 100,000 dead. I just heard on the news that rescue workers are piling bodies in the streets as they find them. My heart really goes out to everyone there. That is such a horrible tragedy.

Onto my other topic...
I am very proud to report that in the past 127 days I have gained 4 pounds!! I know you're thinking why 127 days? Well...I have not been on the Wii Fit in 127 days and that was the last day I weighed in on there. So when I got on there last night I was super happy that my underweight status went up just a smidge. See I am trying to gain weight. And NO I am not one of those annoying girls that are like "Oh my gosh, like I'm so skinny I need to gain weight, like for real." I want to gain weight because:
1.) I would like to donate blood again so I can get extra time at work
2.) I would like to wear regular jeans and not have to search high and low to find some that fit my waist
3.) I want to build more muscles
4.) I'm tired of people asking me if I'm anorexic
And 5.) I just want to gain weight, simple as that!
Luckily I have my mother's genes and lost all my baby weight after I had Rylee, but I mean dang can't I keep some?!?! Oh well. Probably another contributing factor to my weight loss is that after high school I stopped playing volleyball and working out so I lost my muscle tone. So I'm going to start playing volleyball again and gain my muscle back.
Dang, it's Tuesday already. It was just like yesterday I did Random Tuesday Thoughts.
Well anyway I'm wondering why you take Zyrtec at night around 8:00 pm & in the morning you can hardly hold you eyes open to wash your hair in the shower? I thought this was non-drowsy. Yeah well I'm pretty drowsy today. But I must say, I can breathe and don't have the annoying sinus headache! Now if I could get the lady beside me to stop wearing that explosion melon perfume, my head would feel great everyday!!
Not only is today Random Tuesday Thoughts, but it is also my favorite t.v. shows day!! OK here is the lineup:
8:00: The office for 3 WHOLE hours on TBS. Which I watch every Tuesday because I can not get enough of some Micheal and Dwight!
8:00: American Idol. So that means in between commercials I have to watch both. I usually do not get into American Idol but it's the beginning and I like to see the fools come out who think they can sing. PLUS Ellen is going to be a judge and I love her so I want to see how funny she is going to be.
10:00: Bad Girls Club. Good ole drama filled, wanna-be bad girls, with a lot of money to spend in L.A. But hey I'm addicted!! Hopefully I can make it through the whole episode but I doubt it because I'm going to take Zyrtec again tonight. ZZZZZZZ
Crap, what am I going to do when LOST comes on. I need a DVR.
Good thing we have On Demand.

Finally a SNOW DAY!! Yesterday I left work early because I work about 30 minutes from home and the snow was coming down too fast. So I got home that afternoon and we bundled Rylee up and headed out to the snow!! She loved it!! We had so much fun, we weren't out there long because it was snowing hard and freezing!!
Bella even liked the snow!
This would have been a cute Christmas card, if we got snow before Christmas!!
