Aaaaand I’m back!

After what seems like a bajillion years, I am finally back! I wish I could say that I have been out of the country traveling and seeing the sights, or feeding baby pandas, or surfing with dolphins or anything remotely exciting or exotic!

I have actually just been lazy 🙂
The weather has finally started to look like summer out here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and we have been enjoying it!
Instead of writing a post about each event or activity we have been getting ourselves into, I’ll share some brief deets here..

A girlfriend and I took the kids bowling! Watching 4 year olds try to roll the 7 pound ball down the lane is hilarious! Although it took the ball a good 2 minutes to get from Dylan’s hands to the pins, he had a great time! And his score was actually better than mine in the end, with bumpers!! Maybe I should take lessons from him..

I got some new ink! ”Amazing” to remind myself that I am amazing and strong and I can do whatever I put my mind to! It’s also a promise to myself to stay amazing!

Someone lost a tooth! Yes he is too young for his teeth to be coming out on their own.. there was an intense wrestling match between Dylan and his uncle, and uncle’s foot and Dylan’s mouth did not get along.

But the tooth fairy came! Shoes On the Wrong Feet gave me a great idea in one of her past posts about the ToothFairy, So I took that concept and made it my own! Dylan got a note from the ToothFairy and we discussed in great length about what the ToothFairy looks like (purple wings, green shoes, and a gold crown) and which cloud in the sky she lives on.

Dylan got a hair cut! And from the picture below.. you can tell it was much-needed!!

We spent a week at my grandparents house at Lake Chelan in Eastern Washington. Sun, pool, sun, hot tub, pool, sun, and smiles 🙂 Dylan ‘swam’ by himself! With the assistance of a life jacket, he wiggled his way back and forth across the pool yelling “Watch this!”

4th of July! We BBQ’d at a friend’s house. Lots of kids running up and down the street while the parents lined the sidewalks in their camping chairs. The firework show was fun! The guys all had a blast out doing each other’s fireworks!

My cousin got married! And I had the amazing honor to stand beside her at the altar as one of her bridesmaids! This particular cousin and I are only 2 months apart, and we have grown up together our entire life. It was so wonderful to be able to be a part of her special day!

Hi Ken, I’m Barbie.

Is there a rule that a beautiful person HAS to marry an equally beautiful person? No? Ohhhhohoho no no no.. I think there is. And once you have become said amount of beautiful, and of the legal age, I believe there is an agreement that you are required to sign, stating that you WILL marry a person of equal to or greater than beauty to yours.

Exhibit A: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth just announced that they are engaged.

I’m not saying im a Hannah Montana fan, but I did watch (and bawled my eyes out in the first 20 minutes) The Last Song, in which these two love birds co-stared in. It is hard to deny that she is pretty, some might say beautiful, I would not call her sexy.. she is 19! thats.just.wrong.

Liam on the other hand.. I would not hesitate to call him a delicious hunk of yum! Have you heard him talk?! That Australian accent is.to.die.for! I have not yet seen The Hunger Games, but I’m hoping he takes his shirt off at least once in it..??

As I wipe the drool from my chin, I have to admit that they are a beautiful couple. Wishing you many years of happy Hollywood marriage (cause we all know how those turn out..). Advice: Don’t ask Kim K. for marriage advice. And pleeeeaaaaassssseee, as much as I want to follow your every day lives, don’t get a reality show.

Exhibit B: Victoria (Posh Spice) and David Beckham

I don’t think two HOTTER people could be together! These two for sure got hold of the agreement and signed on the dotted line.

Unfortunately, I don’t think all beautifuls were told about said agreement..

Exhibit C: Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

She is hot. He is not

Exhibit D: Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

She is hot. He is not

In my short presentation above.. you can clearly see that if you sign the agreement, you will have beautiful babies and be married for a long time! If you don’t sign the agreement, you will still have beautiful babies, most likely divorce, and possibly turn into a train wreck.
We can all hope for a Barbie and Ken relationship.. I know I am!
