Before You Get Your Weekend ON!

This weekend is supposed to be sunny so I'm crossing my fingers that it stays that way!! We are headed off to a wedding tomorrow for a co-worker tomorrow so for her sake lets hope the sun stays out!! Hubby gets to go to a baseball game in a luxury box (SO NOT FAIR) while I stay home with the twinsies. 

If you dont follow Becky at From Mrs. to Mama, you don't know what you are missing.  She is H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S and I always get a little excited when I see a new post from her because I just KNOW I will be laughing and it will make my day that much better.  She is mama to the most adorable little girl Elliana (beautiful name too) and just keeps it about as real as it gets.  Anyways she is doing a new feature all about moms.  She will be featuring a new mommy every day this month because when Becky puts out the message that she needed mommy bloggers for a new feature, you just say yes because she is just that awesome!!

Well today is my feature!! So head over to From Mrs. to Mama and check it out!! Then go back through her posts and have yourself a good laugh!!

Seriously Thursday

It's Thursday guys!! Which means my weekend starts in 3.5 hours!! I'm linking up with Becky for her Seriously Thursday and you should too!!

So what made me go SERIOUSLY this week...

1. I'm sure this is on everyone's list but RHONY reunion part 1, I couldn't turn my head away from the drama of that reunion but SERIOUSLY I couldn't understand what any one of them was saying, they just talked right over the other, no one made any vaid points and it just seems to get worse with every season.  I mean Kelly, I think she is just plain crazy. Ramona is a giant hypocit, LuAnn is a concited B**** who talks down to everyone on that show, and poor Alex and her red face every time she speaks her mind.  Sonia seems to just get over everything in a matter of seconds and Cindy pretty much stayed quiet until the end where I just lost respect for all of them, not that I gave them much respect in the first place but I thought I liked Cindy, I mean she's a mom of twin girls after all.

2.  As to keep on the Reality TV mode, RHOBH is coming back and it looks worse then this years RHONY or RHONJ together so well I'm a little excited.

3.  I'm over the death of Amy Winehouse, is ANYONE surprised that she died, I mean really, it is sad, she did have talent.  But she was an addict through and through who didn't want to change.  The entertainment world keeps going on and on about it but maybe instead of letting this make the news they should put their attention to the problem and use their audiences of millions to get the word out on addiction and try and help people.

4.  Work is busy like SERIOUSLY busy and I am tired so this is all you get for today but check back tomorrow for something VERY EXCITING!!!

When it's Sunny Outside

You do as the Western Washingtonians do!

You picnic

You play with bubbles

You play with Mommy

You play with Daddy

And you practice your walking moves

And most of all! You enjoy the fact that it was finally over 80 degrees outside (Ps.  I'm totally aware that most of you are suffering from crazy HOT heat, but here, here we haven't had a REAL summer yet)! We had a wonderful weekend filled with family and fun.  Filled with BBQ's, mexican food and picnics.  We played outside like there might not be another sunny day because lets face it, we live in Western Washington and there might not be!

Now That They are Walking...

If you are visiting from Toddle Along Tuesday Welcome!! Heres what I'm thinking, if I can hit 100 followers I will be doing a little giveaway and one of you lucky mamas will win, so if you are lurking come say hi and follow so we can hit 100 sooner then later!!

I realize that I haven't done as great of a job in documenting the babies milestones and big things that they are doing.  I usually can go back and find what they did on Facebook via a status update and write it in.  But here are some things that they are doing in July!

-Walking 95% of the time, hardly any crawling for this boy anymore
-Says: sit, car, ball, vroom, beep beep, buh bye, t for toes, dog, daddy, mama
-Eats everything that we do but is picky some days
-Loves water, juice and milk
-Loves bath time
-Hates Grass
-Loves his grandpas
-Sleeps from 7-7
-Still at 2 naps a day most days, sometimes they only want to take 1 though

P.S. They turned 14 months on the 13th, but these are the best pics be it a few days early!

-Walking 60% of the time, it's still faster for her to crawl
-Says: dog, car, ball, mama, dada (her vocabulary is not as advanced as her brother yet but she's catching up)
-Eats everything we do, loves all food all the time
-Loves water, juice and her soy millk
-Loves bath time
-Loves playing outside
-Loves anyone who will play with her
-Sleeps from 7-7
-Takes 2 naps most days, rarely only takes 1.
-Mama's girl

They are doing different things daily it feels like, I will leave in the morning for work and by the time I come home they have learned something new!  But as you can tell they do a lot of the same things

I'm not sure what they are weighing these days or how tall they are but we will find out at their 15 month well baby check-up.

I have loved every stage with them, they were never particularly hard babies really, they rarely cried and only if something needed done.  We have been blessed beyond measures with these two and we wouldn't have it any other way!

I need a remedy

O my goodness you guys, my allergies have been H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E, I mean I kind of want to scratch my face off but I wont...  I have always had allergies but these are BAD! I have taken zyrtec, claritan and benedryl and nothing is even touching them... This is where you come in...someone HELP ME! There has to be something I can try, some old grandma remedy to get these things to go away or at least not make me want to scratch my eyes out.

I feel like this, foggy and sneezy..yeah I'm making up words now.

In other news the twins are BOTH WALKING, I mean like more walking then crawling...I am so in for it now! They have been walking since their birthday but they have recently got confident and now are walking all over the place, they are also 14 months old TODAY! I have two 14 month olds, I am SAD about this, I already want another but just don't know if this will be in the cards for us.  But 14 months old, time needs to slow down a little and I guess I better call the pedi and schedule their 15 month appointment.  Excuse me while I go lay in my bed and sneeze while I look at old squishy newborn baby twin pictures.... Ok pity party over here tonight apparently.  Thanks for listening!

The Twins 1st Trip to the Zoo

On Saturday July 3rd we took the twins to the zoo for the 1st time.  We also brought my cousin Hannah and my sister with us, it's always nice to have a couple of extra hands when taking the twins out.  I have been waiting for them to be at an age that it would be fun for them and by was it.  The loved the animals and pointed at everything.  Landon's favorite word right now is "dog" which sounds more like "daw" so every animal from the Lions to the penguins were "daw" to him.  Ava loved the trees and loved trying to reach up and grab leaves from them. 

They were in love with the goats...yeah weird I know, I think they liked them since they were able to be face to face with them unlike some of the larger animals that were off doing their thing.  They also loved the Family Farm area of the zoo where they had a "worm crawl" play area and an old tractor they could play on.  All in all it was a fun day and they did so well all day, they even took a little nap in their stroller.  O the funniest thing was while they were laying down in their stroller Ava would reach her hand through an opening over to her brother and he would grab her hand and laugh, then she would laugh, I wish I would have had my video camera because it was soooooo cute and sooooo funny to watch. 

I can't wait to take more family trips to the zoo.  Here are some pictures from our fun day!
