Diaper Rash Cream Anyone?

I have told you all before HERE, how much Ryker LOVES to cover his face and hair in Lotion.
Well last night was a little different...
He thought maybe he would try diaper rash cream and then proceeded to tell me.
"Shave mommy? Shave?"
Oh my son, you are one of a kind and that is why I love you so.
But No...
No shaving today. Maybe next week! ;)
So proud. What a little snot!
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Yes, I'm aware... I'm weird!

I have to write about this otherwise it's going to bug me all day and days to come. Plus I would like to sleep! (you will understand here in a min)

So I have this blog and I follow 13 other blogs daily.I know most of the people that write those blogs except for 5 of them. Somehow I got hooked and I look forward to reading all 13 blogs everyday.

The 5 that I do not know, plus Tiffany (which most of you know and if you don't can read about her HERE or HERE actually blog for a living. Okay maybe not a living but they do have sponsors and pay to be on other blogs and use the money that they get for people wanting to be on their blogs to save the world. Okay maybe not the world but at least save some animals or help a charity or go shopping or something. They say they have real jobs... Uh huh! I don't know know how much money they make or don't make but they have over 1000 followers... Yes, I said 1000. I have 9. Just so you can see the magnitude here!

ANYWAY -----

Back to what has been bugging me and kept me up last night.

One of these bloggers Taylor @TheDailyTay -- Is a hilarious, honest, young lady woman. She is probably older than me if not the same age but that doesn't matter.Well, yesterday she decided to write a political post, not a political post like you are all thinking but a lets make fun of both sides political post. She got some slack for this post from quite a few "followers/readers" and some actually quit following her. Anyway I felt terrible for the way people reacted to a post that started off saying "And now a political post from someone who knows almost nothing about politics." and then she felt the need to have to write a follow-up post to the original post she had written that day more or less apologizing.

So last night while I was laying in bed thinking about what to post about today, I couldn't get Taylor out of my mind. The girl could not win for losing yesterday. One more example of how yesterday went for her. They do this thing in the blogging world (which is a world like nothing else, believe me) called linking up. It's when another blogger writes on said blog to try and get followers or just a laugh or that person needed a break for the day. Anyway -- Like I said she had a rough day yesterday and felt the need to write 3 posts and the last one being a link up, with one of her trustworthy/friend bloggers Erin @LivingInYellow (which I follow as well)-- Erin's post had to have been written at a different time and Taylor was just waiting for the day to use it. Yesterday was the day for it to be used... EXCEPT in the middle of Erin's Link up she wrote come on over read my blog and have a good laugh. -- Yesterday Erin was talking about how her grandmother had passed away. Not something funny like she usually does.
I could not stop thinking about how I would have felt yesterday if I was in Taylors shoes and how things could just not go right for her (in her mind). Although most of us thought the political post was funny.

But alas I finally feel asleep.

My dreams have been very very vivid lately and last night I dreamt that Erin from Living in Yellow and I were hanging out like we were best of friends. We went to the Dave Matthews Band concert (who I don't even listen to. GASP!) but didn't get to go the concert because it was scheduled for the next day.


fall back asleep and now Erin and I are at a chiefs game. (She is not from Kansas/Missouri -- she would not be at/nor would want to go to a chiefs game but that's where we were).


back asleep now making sure we were going to go to the DMB concert.


back asleep Still hanging out with Erin... Okay this is starting to sound a little creepy!!!! Don't worry you all, I'm a little REALLY creeped out too! I do not think this is normal!


This has got to stop... I want to sleep and not dream about blogger strangers that I do not know!
stayed up the rest of the night morning.

Last night was crazy and I got no sleep. Not sure what the point of this whole post was. Except to point out the fact that I'm a creep/weirdo!
Happy hump day all!

PS. One of those 5 stranger bloggers that I follow (Brie @Sophistifunk).. She actually follows me! She is one of my 9 followers... Yeah. I totally think I'm cool! :)
But we all know she doesn't read this... So how cool am I really?

For the love of Duke

I told you awhile back how much Ryker LOVES Dukey and how they Say Goodbye  in the morning.
I Thought I would show you how much Dukey loves Ryker...
Because a dog he must love him very much for him to let this happen!
Tried to get rid of the glowing eyeballs... Couldn't do it without making it look more creepy than it already does.

Believe me, it only lasted long enough for me to capture this... Duke had had enough.
But it is still precious to me that they love eachother so!

Honeymoon Memories

A little over a month ago I told you all about Lover and I's (That sentence right there is probably so wrong in so many ways... but I so badly wanted to use Lover in it! So sue me!)
I told you about our 4 year anniversary and with an anniversary ususally means there was a wedding which also usually means there was a honeymoon. I also told you that someday I would take you on our Honeymoon adventure.
Well guess what?!?!?!?!
Today is NOT the day! kidding kidding
We were blessed enough to go on a cruise to Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada.
Beautiful places.
We arrived on the boat SUPER early cause we were SO excited.
When you arrive you HAVE to have a fruity beverage to kick off the vaca/honeymoon.
We got to do some pretty amazing things.
Canoe to our snorkeling spot. {Story about the canoeing at a later time, I'm actually surprised we are still married after that event, it was that bad, but look 4 years later and still going strong, we laugh at it sometimes now}
We haven't really started paddling yet.... That's why we both are smiling! :P
We got to snorkel, like I said above but thought I would mention it again!
We para-sailed
We held baby lions
We rode horses in the mountains of Ensenada
We dressed up nice to go to dinner {the food was AMAZING and taking pictures of food 4 years ago, wasn't as cool as it is these days. Can you imagine the photos of food I would have to show you!?!}
We sat on buildings in the piano bar, as well and spent most of our time there, with the new friends we met, waiting on karaoke to start.
Because karaoke means air guitar!
Well done boys well done.
We had a great time on our honeymoon and didn't want to come back to reality. I think we a great time because of the drinks we found aboard ship of the pretty cool people we found to hang out with while stuck out in the middle of the ocean with only the boat to keep us entertained. Although I think lover babe and I are pretty crazy, it doesn't take much to keep us entertained. We were probably the entertainment for these folks.
{I mean seriously, cowboy hats and Corona's, thats entertainment enough}
If you EVER have the chance to go on a cruise I HIGHLY recommend it! It was one of THE best vacations I have been on!
Hope your honeymoon was or will be as exciting as ours was!

The Clinger

Don't judge.
Okay so I know you're going to judge. It's just what people do.
For the most part EVERY night little man seems to find his way into our bed.
(Sometimes All the time with the help from his momma)
I am trying to be naive and think that this is the best for all of us, him, I, and daddy (that can sleep through a train going through our house, but that's besides the point). I want to sleep and I know he wants to sleep too. I KNOW that if I could just take a few weeks and make him stay in his bed that after those few weeks we both all would be much happier, both, all of us sleeping through the night.
Right now I just want to sleep... I LOVE SLEEP! ;)
Again Anyway
The little man has decided that he needs to cling to everything in the bed. Me and my pillow and my blankets and me! This should have put me other the edge by now and made me decide that enough is enough and it's time for me to start that "few" weeks horror process...
even if it is 15 min here and there!
This is little man this morning.
Picture is way blurry. I promise your eye sight is fine.
 Yes. Those are pillows!
You might not know this.
But our heads actually rest on those pillows, contrary to popular belief.
Feet in daddy's face. Head on top of momma's!
But look at him... he is so darn cute.
How could you not want to cuddle let him cling to you in the middle of the night?

Silly Cousins

What a weekend!
Not really, It was actually a pretty relaxing one.
Went to the hubby's parents house, which is always a good time.
Ryker got to hang out with all of his cousins and boy do they play and run and yell and go and do and NEVER STOP!!!
But they are so awesome and we love them so much!
Cousin Chloe
Cousin Haley
Cousin Alyssa
Cousin Ryker
I'm pretty sure they could all pass for siblings!
Saturday was a little muggy/rainy so we went and played in the activity center at church.
Everyone got to join in on the fun.
Uncle Nate

Uncle Lukey
Even Grandma joined in on the fun!
(She doesn't read this very often, So she won't know for awhile that I put her picture on here! It will be a least a couple of months before she yells at me! HI JANE! ;) )
Ended the weekend with another Chiefs loss...
 got to spend time with good friends!
Hope you all had a relaxing and fun weekend like we did.
Oh and Ryker was SO worn out from the weekend that he slept through the night and this momma got a full 8 hours of sleep.
I'm feelin' all sorts of good today! :)

slacker slacker slacker

Someone has been a slacker lately.
Remember I told you on Tuesday that I was a procrastinator...
I wasn't lying, was I?
Anyway, we  haven't been home very much this week.
Its been, work work work, play play play and finally SLEEP SLEEP SLEEP!
Man, I love sleep.
Speaking of sleep.... That's where I'm headed now! :)
Great post eh?
Bet you're so glad you wasted a minute of your life on this, aren't you?!?
Yeah, I would be glad too!
But I should have a good one on Monday. You see, we are at Luke's parents this weekend and it gets crazy around here with Ryker's cousins. They are crack ups and we love them.
To all you slackers and procrastinators out there....

Friend of the Week

Who knew that becoming a parent would entail doing homework... HOMEWORK!
I wasn't good in school. Well I guess I should say I didn't like to apply myself. Which also means I'm a procrastinator and will wait until the VERY LAST min to do everything.
Hence -- I hated school!!!
So once I graduated I was relieved that I wouldn't have to do anymore HOMEWORK!
Until last week....
Last week we received a piece of paper from Ryker's school. A piece of paper that stated he had been chosen as "Friend of the Week".
Good for him! What a fun week he will have.
At the bottom of this paper it said "Parents please create a poster about your child and the things he/she likes to do, please bring it next Monday"
 Create a poster?
Pretty sure that is HOMEWORK for a 2 1/2 year old.
What have I gotten myself into, having babies?? :)
So like I said.
Ryker is "Friend of the Week" this week.
And I'm a procrastinator.
Guess who didn't have a poster done on Monday!
Yeah this parent.
I definitely won Parent of the year this week.
I woke up at 4am Monday morning sat straight up in bed and said "OH MY GOODNESS... THE POSTER!!!" There was nothing to be done at that point. I wanted to make a nice poster at least, not just throw stuff together.
I had to walk into Ryker's classroom Monday morning tail between my legs and confess that I didn't make the poster this weekend.I have lied before when I have "FORGOTTEN" Ryker's homework at home. (ie. didn't do it, imagine that, did turn it in the next day though)
But this time I wasn't lying.
I really just didn't do it.
I didn't just FORGET it at home.
How embarrassing.
Anyway, I spent last night creating a poster for Ryker's classroom, so he could be the best "Friend of the Week" ever.
Here's how it turned out.
I also want to give a big shout out to all the men and women that have and continue to serve our country.
And let all the families of ones lost 11 years ago know that they are not forgotten.
