On My Mind.

::Our yard. Last fall Ryan [purposely] killed our grass so that this spring he could do our much needed yard makeover. The yucky wood deck is now gone, our new patio should be laid next week and the dirt is getting leveled out, ready for grass seed. Oh, and then there's the new swing set he's promised to build the children along with a tree house makeover.

::E*Trade Commercials. Every time one of these come on we DIE laughing.

::American Idol. I really LOVE this guy and CAN'T STOMACH this guy. Any man that wears more make up than most women I know freaks me out. His range is impressive, but he's too over the top to appreciate.

::Did you see my post over at My Favorite Things about TapeSwell? I love how something so simple can make me so happy.

::Stephanie's iPhone App post reminded me that I wanted to share with you how much I adore the White Noise App. Ryan and I drift off to dreamland every night listening to it. Our favorite sounds are the "sprinkler" and "crickets".

::Yesterday Audrey had her 18 month check-up. Her stats were very comical. Head-90th percentile. Weight-90th percentile. Height-4th percentile. Ryan and I had no idea we were raising a "little person".

::I somehow stumbled upon this blog yesterday and have been laughing ever since. I dare you to keep a straight face.

::Tomorrow is my due date and there are no induction prospects in the near future. Any wagers on whether I make it through the weekend?


  1. Good luck with the yard!! Always an exciting project. We are trying to get our flowerbeds overhauled right now.
    I am excited for you to have baby #5. What an exciting time for you and your family. I hope that things go beautifully and you are holding that sweet babe very soon. Good luck!

  2. Your yard makeover sounds exciting! My kids would love a tree house....but first, they need a tree ;)

    I completely agree on both of your American Idol points for today. LOVE Matt Giraurd, CANNOT stand Adam Lambert. Over the top is a good description of him. I think there was a reason that he was in the cast of Wicked. The stage is a perfect place for him.

    4th percentile...that sounds familiar. (I think those were my stats from childhood through high school! I'm not kidding. I was SHORT. I didn't grow until after I graduated high school. Oh who am I kidding? I'm STILL short ;)

    Crossing my fingers that your little man will make his appearance very soon. I can't wait to meet him!

  3. So exciting about your yard, I bet it will look great!

    That sexy people website had me laughing out loud. I think I went to school with some of those people. :)

  4. I had to come back and thank you for the link to the sexy people blog. HILARIOUS!

  5. Yay for sexy people, I have a few photos I could contribute.

    Monday that baby better be here!

  6. I have a confession:

    Adam is my favorite contestant. I know, he can seem a bit strange at times....but something about him appeals to me.

  7. I hope that you have that baby boy this weekend. Tell him to come and join your sweet little family soon. Your backyard project sounds exciting. You always have fun links to check out!!

  8. Your yard makeover sounds awesome! And I completely agree with you on your American Idol thoughts. Matt is my favorite too--and I have a very hard time watching Adam--very strange guy. Goood luck with your baby! I hope he makes his grand entrance into the world soon!

  9. 10 bucks says Saturday. :)
    No, I haven't a clue. But I hope it is sooner than later! I am sure you are dying to see his little face!

    Oh, and there is a photo at my mother in law's house of my husband and his brother in high school, posing in matching outfits, barefoot, amidst large amounts of stuffed animals. If I can get my hands on it, I am submitting it to that website!!

  10. Guys wearing too much make-up I actually thought you were talking about Randy the judge. He is another guy that I think looks like he is always made up. It really freaks me out as well when I see men with eyeliner LOL.

    Thanks for the wonderful work on my project.

  11. It's good to see that someone besides me think Adam Lambert is yicky! I have a sweet, usually sane friend who just loves him, and I really think she's gone mental! Good luck with the baby!

  12. hi! happy due date! i am a long time reader of your blog and absolutely love it. i am having a small giveaway/contest on my blog and i was wondering if you would mention it. i know that your blog is an inspiration to many & i am just trying to get the word out. if not, thanks anyway & i look forward to reading more about your creations, home, & baby! thanks! (p.s. the sexy people were hilarious!)

  13. Your yard project sounds fun! I can't wait to have a yard of my own again- we hoping to be in a house before the first day of Summer. Lofty goal- we've been house hunting for a year now... but it's time to just do it!

    Hope your baby comes soon- a new arrival in early Spring- how perfect!

  14. Oh my gosh, those Etrade commercials are HILARIOUS! We love them. I am dying laughing at Audrey's stats. So funny. Yeah, I hate Adam Lambert but don't care about Matt Giraud. Your due date is today?! I didn't know that! Why the heck are they not inducing?! Okay, going to look at some more funny pictures...

  15. I also can't wait to see the newest addition to your gorgeous family. I still need to stop by and see/meet them all :) Do you think the baby will come soon? Like, within the next few days....or hours? ha!

  16. Hi Dandee! I sent you an email about doing some packaging for me... did you get it? Maybe I missed your reply, which is VERY possible. My email is aquarrier@hotmail.com Thank you! Amy
