Two Posts in One Day!

So I'm unproductive, get over it.

I got tagged. (Said in the voice as in, "You got served!")

Titled: 8

8 Favorite TV Shows
(or shows that I actually watch)
  1. LOST- I would cry if I was unable to watch this show every week. In fact, when it's on break, I do cry.
  2. The Office- How can this not be on everyone's list?
  3. Wheel of Fortune- Yes, my husband and I are in the Wheel Watcher's Club.
  4. 30 Rock- Too funny.
  5. Felicity- R.I.P.
  6. Jeopardy- I like to pretend I'm a whiz when it's Teen Jeopardy.
  7. Seinfeld- It's a classic.
  8. Jay Leno- He's growing on me.
8 Things I Did Yesterday
  1. Got our taxes done. THANK you Uncle Sam!
  2. Took Maddie to her 9 month check up. She had to get lab work, so she got her blood drawn. She was way tougher than that 8 year old across the curtain.
  3. Got a free milkshake from Del Taco; thanks to our signing up for every freebie we can find.
  4. Showered and cleaned the kitchen floor while Maddie slept.
  5. Took Raheem to the dog park where, unseen by me, he collided with another dog and caused serious leg injury to the little fella.
  6. Gave Raheem a bath on the patio, after which he went crazy in the house running, barking, rolling, seriously crazy.
  7. Made chicken enchilada with our leftover mix. I've eaten enchilada everyday since Saturday.
  8. Watched Elmo's World.
8 Things I Look Forward To
  1. Living in a house with a yard.
  2. Being able to have cell phones again.
  3. Casey getting home from school tonight. Well, me getting home from Mutual after he's gotten home from school. I love my husband.
  4. The day Maddie loses her death grasp on me and will let others touch her.
  5. A full night's sleep.
  6. To finish reading a book. It hasn't happened in at least 8 months.
  7. LOST tonight! If I get home in time tonight.
  8. Living in a smaller city.
8 Favorite Restaurants
  1. Anything Indian
  2. George's Gyros
  3. Haji Baba
  4. My Big Fat Greek Restaurant
  5. Taco Bell

8 Things On My Wish List
  1. Easy going baby
  2. No mortgage payment
  3. Sewing machine
  4. Baby bike seat
  5. Motivation
  6. My stupid hair to stop growing in like a tumble weed on my forehead
  7. Nanny/maid/hair stylist
  8. $1,000 shopping spree- I need summer clothes in the worst way. Casey's tshirts aren't that fashionable on me.

New Camera!!!

So last year we decided we were going to save our money all year to buy a nice camera for our joint Christmas present, but then someone had to go and lose their job (me), so it didn't quite work out. We've finally saved enough and bought a nice new camera. We LOVE it!! I've always wanted a nice camera, and have been pretty consumed by it so far. Don't be surprised if I post random pics pretending to be a professional photographer; it is a dream of mine so please don't squash it.

I think my baby secretly smokes pot....

or the camera flash bothers her eyes. I really can't say for sure.

Number Two

I tackled another crafty project; these cute cloth baby shoes. It took me sooo long to do. Thanks to Christie for being so patient with me and Beka for letting me use her machine. Unfortunately I made them too small and they don't even fit Maddie. But now I know how to make them and I can make her another pair that will hopefully turn out a little better than these did. I think I'm going to do an all off white pair for church since she will soon not need to wear tights anymore. Don't you worry, I'll post them when I'm done. I'm sure you're dying to see how they turn out.

Day of Loooove and birthday celebrations

We had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. I awoke to Casey coming home with a bunch of red tulips for me! We had said no presents this year, but I'm so glad we broke the rules. He also gave me some Twix, my newly declared favorite candy bar, and he bought a box of the kiddie Valentines and wrote a cute note on each one for me. Seriously the best present ever. I felt a bit inadequate handing him his poem and sugar cookies, but Maddie made up for it with her hand crafted Valentine she made for him, or I should say "feet crafted." I painted her feet white and made little feet prints on some Vday scrapbook paper with other embellishments; way cute.
Casey had a soccer game that morning then we ate some breakfast with his parents. I was pretty beat all day, so we stayed in and were majorly unproductive. Then that night we headed out to dinner. It's been so long since we've gone out to dinner that it was such a treat. We had one of our absolute favorites, Indian Food. The food was divine, but the Maddie Cakes was not. We ate in shifts and felt so bad for interrupting everyone elses romantic dinners with our crazy baby. We ended with a Blockbuster night. We watched the movie Definitely, Maybe.
Yesterday was Casey's birthday. I woke up early (7:00 is early for me even though it's only 30 minutes before our usual wake up time) and made swiss aspargus quiche and french toast for the lad. We went to church, came home then had a picnic in the park. Later that night we went to his parents for a joint bday dinner where his mom had paella, jello salad (per my request), garlic bread and aspargus. We had delicious birthday cake and chocalte mousse cake. We like food okay.

Bath Fun

This is what I look like after bath time with Maddie. She goes nutso in the tub. It's quite hilarious to watch. If I knew how to post a video on here I would do so, until then, just take my word for it. (Please excuse my hairstyle- I'm sure I had a long day)

The Beginnings of a Crafty Lady

As Casey stated earlier this evening while feeling his forehead, "I've got sock monkey fever!" We decided to venture into the art of sock monkeys. We went to the dollar store, bought some cute socks, then headed over to Casey's parents to use the sewing machine. It's sad when your husband has to explain to you how to use the sewing machine. BUT it's a start, and I someday hope to gain a talent and a hobby of sewing all kinds of fun things. I'm going to start going to Thursday Night Sewing Night in hopes of being taught these talents and also the use of a sewing machine as we have no such object in our house.

So here he is, the finished sock monkey. His ears are crooked and the stitching is sloppy, but I'm sure Maddie will not notice. We're excited to present her with her first homemade gift from her overly excited parents when she wakes in the morning.
