Now, if we would've waited a day, it would've been put off even longer. Oh boy am I glad I don't have to look at that jungle of a yard for another week or whatever it would've ended up being...thanks for getting on this when you had the chance, love. (:

There's lots of good out there. Here are some of my favorites as of late...
Brody got his first haircut ever. He sooooooooo needed it. I tried time and time again to cut it.. that was a bust. So I'd try to snip it here and there when he least expected it but even that didn't work. It was quite frankly the worst experience ever but I think after all the struggle and constant- screaming at the top of lungs, it turned out incredibly debonair.
This made me laugh...glue that advertises it can be used on wood
but then says..
This made me happEEE: I got presidential honors at school for my grades last semester! First semester back in over 3 years.. not bad!
This makes me grin: Nothin spells happiness like a "Cup of bubbles!" Whenever I do dishes manually Brody cries for bubbles so I skim some off the top into a cup and let him play with it. He LOVES it! And I love watching.. (I can't find the pics on my computer daggnabbit!
They make me crack up: I have excellent friends! This photo shoot was a collaborative effort (not to mention a blast!). Nat's camera, my lens, and Alexa's location! So fun! And such gorgeous friends I have...I'll post more of those pictures on facebook because they are just so fun...
This makes me relieved: My new camera arrived! It feels like my birthday! Technically it is my "half birthday" today so I guess cake is in order.
Cake is always in order... especially when today is my mom's actual birthday. Happy Birthday beautiful mother of mine! I love you! You are my favorite (don't tell the others:)
Hope you had a happy day!

We got up there and had a half hour before the sun went down. I took pictures. I still don't have my camera! (Soon. Next week, if I'm lucky...the wait is slowly killing me). But I do love my trusty powershot. There was a round cement seat at the top- so we sat there cuddled in a blanket. I was happy enough with that- and hearing all the beautiful things Tony said to me. But I should've known that wasn't all...

Isn't that lolli soooo Valentine's day?? I thought so. More on this later...

The last several times we have taken B in for a check-up have been a complete nightmare. He knows the place and he knows his doctors face. When we pulled up today he was already asking to leave.. "go??". Doesn't matter how many Sponge Bob stickers you give him, Brody is not happy there. To say the very least.
I thought that was normal behavior for any child his age; so I ignored all the other factors that had me leaning towards a switch. Against my better judgment, we stayed. But I've let this go on long enough.
I couldn't be more like that mother bear right now. The fact that a professional association would give my son 3 doses of the SAME shot (when he's only supposed to have 2) infuriates me. Beyond infuriates me! What kind of a moron doctor doesn't know how to read a shot record. And who, oh by the way- gives a random shot to your kid when they aren't supposed to have it. Even I know how to read a shot record and I'm not a registered or certified anything.If anything happens to my son so help me.. mother. bear. Things could get ugly.
On the bright side the Brodster is terrorizing the joint in his usual fashion so I don't think there is too much cause for alarm... but I don't need a third strike before we're out out of there... this is Mesa-city-league-softball people. (I learned that the hard way that you only get 2 strikes but that's another story). Peace out Dr. S---
ohh... I'll forgo the names and address. They are lucky.. I know my local readers would make a special trip to introduce several dozen cartons of eggs to their front windows. But let us dispense with the theatrics and be civilized. Just walk away...maybe just one egg.
On the other bright side, Brody got his free meal. Thursday is upon us... a week has gone by again? Crazy. Oh- and Brody's been mimicking me like a mad man today too. My favorite was:

It's never too early to start disappointing your child by waving puppies in front of his face just to yank him away 10 minutes later. I have taken Brody to this very pet shop 3 times in a week span. I'm a horrible mother, do you want to know why?..... horrible mom because: I have no intention on buying him a puppy. Not now, not ever! Ahhahahaha! Muahahahaha! Ok, that's probably not true. Besides, I see this lil guy looking up at me and how can I help but ooh and aww. I had a few moments to myself while Tony tried on a 75 dollar shirt when I realized that EVERYTHING I was wearing came from the same store. Shirt, crochet cover-up vest, skinny jeans, necklace, and sandals. I'm an advertisement, that doesn't get paid. Whatthefreak?
Then we waltzed over to American Eagle- which oddly enough I stopped shopping at. I used to buy lots of stuff there but not for a while. huh. Wonder why. Anyway. I entertained myself by making Brody say hi to all the mannequins and I gifted myself with the cutest bedazzled cardigan. Could I be anymore girl. I ask you.
I was glad we walked in there- Tony found an equally attractive polo for 8 bones. Life is good to me. (I may or may not be a girl version of George Costanza..Immmaa little cheap. I am in love with sales and clearance racks..it's where I found this lil number, of course. Go me.)
As any good night should end, we headed over to Chick-fil-a. I LOVE that place! Ohm nom nom..Number one with Polynesian sauce and a lemonade, stat! Tony watches with wide eyes as I devour my meal, before I even get a chance to pick it up. LAY OFF I'M STARVING!!! (er, something like that..)
Oh dern it I'm getting ahead of myself. So we headed over there... the entire ride Brody was chanting "CHICKEN! CHICKEN!" (seriously was) SO I knew how excited he had to be to get what was coming next. We walk in- knowing it was family night and B's meal would be freeeeee! Remember: GEORGE COSTANZA. Cheap is like angelic music and a pillar of light above me. So you can imagine what FREE means.
I proceed to order and the kind ma'am says, "OH, sorry family night ended 10 minutes ago". I was like, "He! Oh... just 10 minutes...phew. You scared me. I thought it ended hours ago! Well, surely you'll still give my starving chicken-obsessed child his free meal. You kind hearts are surely not that cheap. What is it, a couple bucks?" (or at least that ran through my little head.. what was actually said I do not recall.)
ACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK! You've got to be kidding me!
What did I learn in my meditation class? Oh right... breathe breathe...

I promise you, dear classmates, that I do not use "ointment" for anything. I should probably replace all those pens I got working at Mesa Pediatrics with a Bic or something. "Not to freak anyone out but I have a scorching case of herp- well, never mind." Yeah, not true.
Which reminds me that same class I've had several interesting encounters. So the guy from Happy Gilmore(you know, the one with the nail in his head?) well, he's in my class.. or at least his doppelganger is. He told me my "shirt looks pretty". Thanks. (or should I be saying thanks for making the next hour super awkward). Since I've been married it's been interesting accepting compliments. I don't want to be too nice or come off mean. What to do...
And another one .. So the teacher (same class btw) was lecturing and you must know he's kind of nerdy, cracks lame jokes... I totally identify with this guy. And he said something both of us thought were funny and this girl next to me turns to look at me with wide eyes like, "can you believe this guy? what a weirdo" BUT she didn't say that.. so I kind of grin back and nod my head like, "I gottcha, I totally get what you're putting off"...
But apparently she thought it was ME putting something off because she turns back toward the teacher slllowly, grabs her shirt collar and covers her nose and mouth with that and her hand for the next few minutes.
WAIT! What!? It wasn't meeeeeee!
I wasn't smiling for that reason! I don't smell anything!!!!!!!!!!!??!!! But it was over and done and there was nothing more I could say but take the blame. Dang it.
She thought I was smiling, somehow proud of my handiwork. Not so. *sigh. (you get my drift, right? Well she did. So she thought)
I only eat peach yogurt. It's strange... it's the only flavor I can really enjoy. The rest I eat simply if there aren't any left of my kind, or because the label says there are "live and active cultures". Gets me every time. Gimme some cultures! What can I say, it's the health junky in me. ****someone pass me some laffy taffy with sprinkles!! thx**
So my pictures thus far are all from my camera phone because I sold my camera! (the one I got this day) It was kind of sad- it was like a child, really.. But I'm over it now because I'm upgrading! Can't be sad about that. It'll be a much more advanced one (still deciding which exactly.. if you have any suggestions I'm open). But yeah, so that will be coming sometime this month!! (Hooray for my budding business)
So long camera. It was a good one!
Ok, remember how I had ya'll vote for your fav picture here? I apologize I'm completely retarded but I left one off... and it happened to be a good one, I think. So I ended up printing this one below and number 2 with some editing. I have them both in the same frame and will switch them periodically as I feel like it. Anyone else do that? Well and anyway the votes were split pretty good so those were the ones! Thanks for your votes btw (:
