What's Happening

We are going to a wedding the first weekend of August.

It's going to be freaking hot. I do not want to be the woman who has to wear sleeves because her bat wings will be flapping in the breeze, spraying everyone with sweat droplets as I try not to pass out from heat exhaustion. Lovely imagery, isn't it? It made me laugh.

I've got a little under two months to get in some sort of decent shape (round is not a shape) and try and look good for this little event.

Drake is 5 months old but he is wearing clothes in the range of 6-9-12 months, depending on where we get them. He is going through clothes fast. Tomorrow we are going to get him some shots because I finally have some cash to do it and he is going to hate me for it.

He spent the weekend with my parents and they wore him out completely. He went to bed last night around 10:30 and woke up at 8:30 this morning, went down for a nap at 10:30 and woke up at 12:30, fell back asleep at 1:00 and woke up at 3:15. He stayed awake for a whole two hours, then went back to sleep at 5:30 and woke up at 6:30, he then stayed awake until 7:30 and he's been down ever since.

I learned how to drive the stick shift last night. I did really well until I got home, the last traffic light before our apartment. I stalled out SO MANY TIMES because I saw a police car and I got all flustered. I couldn't get the car to start up, so I kept getting more and more flustered. I kept thinking the cop was surely going to come up to the car and tell me to move it off the road, but he ended up doing a u-turn and driving the other direction. I guess he didn't want to deal with some dumb broad haha!

But we made it and it was fun driving it. I even did it with Drake in the car, so of course that added to the pressure of the situation, but I did fine.

We've been eating all natural ingredients for about a week now and I do have to say I feel better about what I am eating although I have yet to notice any difference on the scale. We made home made spaghetti sauce from scratch last night and it was a decent first attempt. I think my tomatoes were a little under ripe though, as the sauce turned out an orange instead of a red color. I roasted the tomatoes before hand, so I think that had helped the flavors but it was still pretty... bland.

Brian gave me permission to try again, so that is what I will do.

He is all excited about his first Father's Day. Of course he works Sunday, but he has Saturday off. He wants a bicycle (again) so he is going to go pick out one on Saturday.

He has no idea still that I am planning anything exciting for his birthday so that's good. Now that I can drive the car, I can go out and get all the things I need :) See what I did there? I learned to drive stick shift to plan my husband's birthday party. I know, I know, pretty bad ass right? He thinks I did it because he's been pestering me to learn. Hehehe sneaky wife is sneaky.

  1. I LOVE the control of a stick shift! I miss it- my SUV didn't come in a stick. :( Oh well.

    Way to go on Party planning! I have some ideas as well for Sean's (hopefully soon) qualifying party! Once he gets qualified at work and isn't considered "new" anymore(funny, 2+ years in and a sailor is still 'new').

    Just Dance 3 for Wii helps me tone my arms! :)
