am i dreaming.....

it is 8:21
and i have showered.
got dressed.
drinking coffee. 2nd cup already
watching the today show! oh how i have missed you TODAY!
on pinterest (if you do not know what this is leave me a comment with your email and i will send you an invite!!! you will be hooked!!!) and blogger!!!
this is complete craziness. who made my children sleep in?

i heard pres @ 6:00 this morning kicking and laughing but did not get up and later when i got up i saw her door was open. so obviously asia went in for a little playdate this morning.
but pj went back to sleep. thank goodness or asia would have been in trouble!

drew is gone in SEATTLE for work! we miss him when he is gone. but i think we send him enough videos and pictures that he may feel like he is home!
proud of him that he was invited to this meeting!!! he makes us proud!

sunday night b.f he left he told d that he was going in an airplane and dillon said
"up in the air?' and drew said yes and then "like a bird?" (as he was flapping his wings!!!) so cute. i just love how one day they decide to talk talk talk about everything... there is not stopping what they say and what they know. makes me laugh, smile, shake my head and sometimes makes me cry and sometimes makes me nervous what he will repeat!
this week could not have been better so far. monday we did some play time @ home. rainy and yuckie...
tuesday gramma b took both kids for the day!??!! YIPEEE . thank you thank you thank you! so you ask what did i do?!?!?! hhmmmm... not really sure.
i ran errands for hours. my list was not long but i was still gone for hours!
make some pLum headbands for fun. and relaxed!!!! it was great!

this past weekend we headed to gardner sat. sat night we were in harwood @ drews cousins med school grad party! congrats shannon we are so very proud of you!!! sunday we hung out @ the farm. dillon was in heaven. tractors.
and a big surprise. a new GATOR from g&g. he was so excited. cautious is his middle name so he is taking it slow. but loving that he can load and dump. so fun.
sunday it was another HS graduation. congrats LAUREN. to bad you are going to NDSU and not UND!! :) j.k
pres got a pedicure. worked perfectly when gramma can hold her and i can paint.
dill found a new love. the drums. grandpa had his in their basement @ the farm. dillon loved them. but no that does not mean we ever want them here!!! :) well maybe if he is better!
i got him a new guitar this week. and it had came everywhere with us. he loves it!
american idol 2028 watch out!!!!!!

and my dream had ended.... i hear a little boy yelling i wake up!!!!!

well i am back and everyone is in bed.
my day started out so dreamy.... it was not like that for long.
we got up and all was looking good.
then the first tantrum b.c d wanted juice not milk. i would not give in.
then a throw myself on the floor tantrum when i would not let him have waffles.
i was making pancakes today and that was that.
i thought all would get better when we went to the park.
but he got mad when his best little buddy B wanted to play with his bubbles
so instead of sharing he dumped them all out. then was mad that they were gone.
then proceeded to throw then @ b's head!!! sorry B. he loves you i swear!
then they made up and decided to sit in the car and watch the
JOHN DEERE TRACTOR movie the rest of the time @ the park.
that made for a relaxing time for Heidi and i. so i am not complaining.

i got over being mad @ a little stinker in my house after....

1. he said "YEAH MEATBALLS" and started clapping when i told him i made meatballs!
he for sure has never clapped when i have cooked b.f. (trust me no one has)
there was no clapping after he was done eating.... he did eat 5 of them. if you asked he was say 4.7. which is a lie. that is what he says to everything!!!
(they still do not hold a candle to my mom's but i am trying)

when he asked me to dance while we were watching american idol.

when i asked him who was his favorite mommy and he said "mommy".
i know i know a loaded question but i just wanted to see what he would say.

and after reading this. click here to read the 7 signs your baby loves you. read this if you ever have doubts!!!!
especially loved 3,4 and 6 below.

3 Your toddler throws wicked tantrums.
Nope, those screaming fits don't mean he's stopped loving you. He wouldn't be so hurt and angry if he didn't trust you so deeply.

4 Your toddler runs to you for comfort when she falls down or feels sad.Kids this age may not truly understand the meaning of "I love you," but their actions speak louder than words

6 Your preschooler wants your approval.
She'll start to be more cooperative around the house, and she'll look for chances to impress. "Look at me!" will become a catchphrase.

last week i got to go to TIM McGRAW in GF with a couple of friends!!! we had so much fun!
so funny when i was in college i was even a bigger fan than i am now.... but so much of a fan that i had pictures on the ceiling of my car and on the dash. yep. drew still talks about that. and above my bed on the ceiling next to AJ from the backstreet boys!!! yikes. seriously how dorky is that?!?!?! this is one of the only pictures i took on my phone that actually was not blurry. my eyes are not open but there we are!!! thanks girls i had so much fun!

we have been playing on the beach alot.
lots of time @ the park with friends.
last friday a friend and i took my two and her little girl garage saleing (no idea how to spell that but you know what i mean). we did not find anything WONDERFUL but we had a fun time!

Real housewives of NJ is one crazy season so far and i have only season the first episode. can not wait to watch the last one tonight. it is kind of sad to watch. i can relate to the drama!!! drama for no reason what so ever!!!!!!! so it will be a good season to watch the train wreck.

miss pj is still not interested in crawling. but you can barely hold her now w.o her trying to go go go.
not sure if crawling is in her future or not but if it is..lets hope it is soon.

excited for drew to get home. he just got on his last flight to fargo!!!

working on a lantern cluster for the play room!!! i love love love pj's and now i think i need one downstairs too! if you know me this is what i do .... i get an idea and can not stop!!!

EXCITED that this weekend we have party bus with friends! 35 of us right now getting on a bus sunday night!!! so excited to spend time with friends and have a fun night out!

sad i missed the last OPRAH. thought @ one point that now that i am home... i would watch everyday. i have not watched in weeks... months.... i can not remember. oh besides a little of the giveaway day.

had not watched american idol all season. but just watched the finale and it was great. the winner is such a little cutie. my kind of country. who knew that voice would come out of that little body!

off to lay on the couch and watch a little tv to relax!!!
good night!



that is my shrieking the other day as i looked and looked again through the

i had been stalking the UPS man for days online and once even on the phone trying to figure out when it would be @ my house... and they day it came i forgot. my MIL stopped over and found it in the door. my excitement had worn off a little. but it is back. love seeing my name in the index!! SO FUN!
dillon wants to look @ "mommy's book" . over and over again. he loves finding himself.

now my goal is to get preslee in a book!

kids in bed.
drew watching racing or something down stairs.
me=having donuts (yum) and watching SVU. and i saw this one a couple of weeks ago.
but i can never get enough. trying to figure out my new phone. long story but goes something like this. wed. dillon deactivated my phone. no idea how. d&p and i go to verizon to get it fixed. as we were waiting. he looks @ me and says
"mama phone in water". i look up and see a huge sign with a phone sitting in a glass of water. ((nice advertising!?!!) obvsiously wanting you to get insurance. well it should have sold me. i used to have it but recently stopped it.... move ahead two days. our friends were here picking up their daughter. drew handed dillon a glass of water. as we were talking i hear once again
"mama phone in water" in the cutest little voice ever.
yes he put it right in the glass.
so now=me with a new phone. i really wanted the phone i had. of course i can not get it anymore. and the only touch screens that i can get i HAVE to have the internet. i DO NOT WANT IT!!! i do not want it in my purse. @ the library. @ lunch, on a date or out with my friends. but i had no choice. so here i am with a new phone. which is wonderful......i just called verizon and they do have 2 available that i can order. touch screen with no web!!!

excited to see that "the wiggles" tickets are not as expensive as i once thought.
when i first heard they were coming to GF i immediatly started looking for tickets. why did i now go to ticketmaster... not sure but when i looked I saw tickets for $95-175 each. really. for our little family of four it would have cost about $500. not including the 4 hour round trip in a gas guzzler.... but today i was searching (on my new phone) for itunes music. yes i will admit it i was looking for "the wiggles" cd's so we can be ready for the show. but there was a link to tickets. the highest price is only $75.
and they are all gone.....but row 8 is open!!!
(thank you bets and hayden for getting us addicted)

1. this is dillons i am not guilty face. as we were playing the other day i turn my head and when i turn back he has blue chalk lining his mouth! obviosuly he had a blue chalk in his mouth. i asked him if he put something in his mouth and this is the look he gives me as he says "NO...NOPE"

2. it was fishing opener in MN!!! drew went out this am with mike and jack. in the cold cold rain. they did catch a couple. and jenn and i went to a jewelry party!
so this afternoon dillon and drew did some fishing off the dock. dillon said he got lots of big fish. but drew said they really only had one on the hook. but lost it.

3. pj looks just like dillon did HERE. seeing her face i had to run and get the camera. it was such a flash back to exactly how dillon looked.
she is not too close to crawling and has no interest in walking. she will stand. and loves it but the whole having to move your legs is just not her thing. her thing is SLEEPING. yesterday she took a nap from 12-5! her schedule went like this. up @ 8. breakfast. 9 she needed a nap. up @ 10:15. down @ 12. up @ 5. ate. back to bed @ 7:15. got up this am @ 7:45.
oh to have her life!!! i know i am her mom but my little pj is really the happiest baby girl ever.
i just wish she would stop growing. almost 10months. this is just cruel for me having to start thinking about her 1st birthday. YIKES!!!

this was preslee's first bath tonight w.o her tub ring. in the tub w.o dillon we do not need it.
but when dillon is in there she can barely stay upright in her ring. she laughs so hard @ dillon that it is safer in the ring for all of us .and she has not even been in the bath by herself since she upgraded to the big bath. wow to be a second child. the things you sacrifice.

i can not get enough of this smile. and her dimples! xoxoxo

i am off to bed.


how did i spend my mothers day.

with sloppy wet kisses. and the best smiles. and squeezes.
what more can a mom ask for?

i think nothing.
happy mothers day to all mothers. especially to my mother and mother in law.
thanks mom for teaching me what it is to be a mom. what is important in life.
we spent the whole day together. and when i say whole i really mean it. dillon woke up @ 2am. he went to bed early after a long day out in the yard. but we did not expect him to be full of energy @ 2am. yikes! just more time to celebrate mom right?!?!
or test my patience maybe.... and he sure did.
he has told me "happy new year" many times this week so far. so he is still celebrating. yes maybe the wrong holiday but celebrating atleast!

both kids in bed. drew in GF. me. i should be cleaning or doing something productive but i am sitting on pinterest. and can not stop. oh how i love this site. whoever invented it is a genius!
searching for mudroom ideas. dreaming of a new kitchen. and many other things. i have so many ideas for changes in our house but the room i am so dreaming of is a new mudroom. or in our case a mudroom @ all. we have such a small entry and with all of the stuff that goes in and out of the house i am in need of a perfect mudroom.

dillon wants to wear him water boots everywhere. with water he is wearing. we wear them to church, the gym (which he asks to go to now all day long) to the park and today i actually talked him in to wearing his crocs! bis step in our house!

i got my garden ready for planting and last night drew and i put up my pea fence and planted my snap peas. can not wait to get the rest of it in the ground.
loving the time we are spending outside. dillon must have 5 outfits on a day. from being completely full of mud from the garden..or soaking wet from the water... and not being warm enough to be in just a diaper all day...we change and change again.
preslee is getting so big. i can hardly believe it. and the strawberry blonde hair!?!? i can hardly believe that either. i guess i always expected to have blonde kids. that is b.c my sister have three blonde blonde blonde kids and it is what i had in my mind. when d was born i almost fainted. i should have know it was a possibilty. come on now--drew has black hair too! so when pres was born i was again expecting dark black hair. and she was bald. really?!?! bald. i could hardly believe it. and now it is coming in a little strawberry. some of it white else. but i guess it proves you really have no idea.
she really is a easy going baby. last week we got to spend some time just her and i.
oh how i loved that.
i feel like we never get that alone time.
i also forgot how easy it is to have one child around. wow. putting one baby to bed... wow. i do not even remember what it was like to have one child running around here.

dillon loves worms.
and miss p loves "so big".

dillon goes "working" now. to "making money"
tonight on the deck he would get in his car and say "going working" get out and take his keys. and go to the other side of the deck and come back and pretend to hand me money. i asked him how much he made and he would say "four" every time. back to the car. drive. and again and again he would go working to make money. oh i love that his imagination is starting to go.... i love this kind of play time!
spent some time with one of my dear friends and her son (and soon to be baby too) in fargo. the boys had fun running around the mall yelling "happy feet". love when they actually play and laugh together!

watching "the voice" . tim mahoney was sent home. i love him. MN boy!!!!
news is on. my cue to go.



why cant we be nieghbors?!?!?!? they could play every night.
(wishing my sister and her family lived down the street-i love the days we can spend together)

can not believe that osama is gone. our troops are
amazing. thank you to all of the troops and their family's! you truly are HERO's!!!!
hate colored bubbles. they stain everything. do not get them... not as cool as they seem.

funny things dillon says.

we were out of milk. so he looked @ drew and said
"daddy go buy more... store"
his gramma asked asked him where he got his new shows and he says
good guess. but that comes to my next point. oh how i love
zappos! they really are amazing. i ordered one day and the next they were on my door step! really!??!?! amazing!
but back to target. drew says he is after my heart. and that i talk about it.... really do i talk about it... i love love love target.
we have been back playing on the deck.

sitting in the water... getting wet. trying to come in the house. i change him. he goes back out. sits in the water again.. and we start over again........
