Ho ho holy F am I glad Christmas is over.




We had a great Christmas. Because my parents are divorced, we had three celebrations, including the one with Dustin’s side of the family. Lillienne got some great presents, and she won’t need clothes until she is ninety two years old. Also, thanks to all the relatives who got her toys the size of Kansas, toys that need sixteen “D” batteries, and toys that are very LOUD and go on by themselves which mean they are probably possessed, and now I am scared to go out in the livingroom/kitchen area at 2am to get a drink of water because that THING is playing music on its own. I’m just waiting for the TV to turn on as well and have Carol-Ann telling me “they’re here…”
All in all Christmas was very busy. Family and friends and traveling and cheesecakes and Grandma Mary’s buns and undoing your jeans so you can breathe. Christmas lights and wine and babies not sleeping at the farm and losing your child amongst the mounds and mounds of wrapping paper. Christmas cookies and Bing Crosby and opening the 7907502 gifts Lillienne received. We had a wonderful Christmas. But I am glad (and so is my waistline) that it’s over. Til next year……

Mineraleyez.com Giveaway

Yesterday when Dustin checked the mail I almost had to change my panties because my eyeshadow from http://www.mineraleyez.com/ showed up! I ordered some last monday and I was pumped I could rock some new eyeshadow at Christmastime. I ordered Canola (bright yellow), Snow Angel (a neutral with sparklies) and Grasshopper (because I love me some green). I tried it on last night and almost asked myself for my phone number. I Love it!
Lexus from mineraleyez.com tossed in a free eyeshadow as a giveaway for my blog…
So I chose Saskatoon Berr-eh (feel my love for the hometown!). It’s a beautiful color of purple that will look great on everyone! So here’s the deal – leave a comment for an entry and make sure to check out http://www.mineraleyez.com/! Most of the eyeshadow is only ten bucks, and she has blush and bronzer and eyeliners, too. FREE SHIPPING too, folks. Does it get any better?

baby’s first christmas – more baking and our tree.

I totally caved. I just couldnt do the whole “baby’s first christmas” without a christmas tree. I dug it out on Saturday (yes we have a fake tree- save the earth and trees for your grandkids!) and decorated it yesterday with the help of my sister. It looks beautiful.
Also made rice krispy squares today. I had the best intentions of saving these and putting these with the other christmas baking goodies, but I have a feeling these will not last until then.

helping with the baking! (if you call making rice krispy squares baking…)

WTF

I wish there was a cell phone that combined the incredible powers of a cellular service, a video camera, a camera, the internet, a butt scratcher and a diaper changer. iBum Clean. That would be all I needed, folks. Seriously though, I think it’s time I upgrade my cell phone. It’s slowly driving me crazy, and I think If I took it in to my service provider they would just throw me a new phone because wtf am I still using this old junky thing for?
Sometimes I wil get texts the next day that were sent the previous night. And they’re usually “LET”S GO PARTY!” and I totally miss the party because of my stupid phone. Actually I usually miss texts like “Two blondes walk into a bar and..” Stupid phone and it’s delayed important messaging skills.
Another thing that irritates me is it’s texting capabilities (or lack thereof), or word memory or whatever it’s called. I’ll be asking a friend to come for coffee and my thumb will slip, and I’ll look up at the screen and it will say “Sure I would beans tomorrow home.” And then I get confused and start thinking about beans for tomorrow, and do we have any at home? And then I forget about coffee.
Also, no matter how many times I write out the word “Of”, my phone cant remember it. So whenever I want to use the word “Of”, I have to Alpha it instead of t-9 it (common Terminator jargon as well as texting references), and it takes me seven weeks to do this, so I constantly replace the word “Of” with “O”.
“How are you?”
Kind o shitty.”
This non-functioning of my phone would be hilarious if all I ever wanted to say was “Top o the Morning to you”, but sadly it is not. And WTF maybe I’ll start using it more.
I’m thinking about a blackberry. I don’t know much about super phones although I most likely will never have time to listen to/put music on it or watch tv, and I’d like to do some quick uploading and the ability to check my email without it taking twenty five minutes.
The only thing that is stopping me is the $100.00 of games I have invested and downloaded in the past 3 years to my current junker, and the hundreds of photos and videos of Lillienne. How do I part with thee?

My Lizzle is Tizzle Mizzle, For Rizzle.


10 things i love about my (not such a baby anymore) baby.

1.Her laugh. It almost sounds fake, like she is really only laughing to amuse us instead of her laughing because she is being amused.

2. When she wakes up from a nap, she is already waving “hi!” before her eyes are fully open.

3. How she crawls after Dustin all weekend when he is home, soaking up the minutes before it’s Monday and he’s back to work all week again.

4. How she grins and smiles when I start to sing the ABC’s.

5. How when she sees yogurt she is frantic and so excited.

6. I love how Lillienne takes tiny sips of my chocolate milk. (TINY sips, people. Slow down.)

7. How she looks up at me when she is eating, and makes me feel like nothing will ever be this special, this huge, this amazing.

8. When she hasn’t seen me for a few hours and she gets all excited and makes up a whole paragraph of “words” but nothing makes sense.

9. How she loves cheese, just like me.

10. How she has changed my life.

Today Lillienne is 10 months old.
