Weddings and Other Stuff

So my two younger brothers are getting married!!! Riley is getting married October 9th to Alli. Kade is getting married November 20th to Miki. I am very excited for both of them. However, I am having a difficult time finding dresses for both weddings. Alli and Riley want black dresses. You'd think that a black dress wouldn't be hard to find right? Well the problem I am running into is that they are all above the knee, strapless or really low in the front. Yesterday I ordered 3 dresses off this site and I really like the dresses, but I just hope one of them fits and looks good :) I am going to send the other 2 back, they were free shipping, so I really don't think I will be out any money.
Miki and Kade want light gray skirts with white tops and pale yellow cardigans... We also have to find Jeremy some light gray slacks... I need to take a trip to St. George and go shopping.
I like the idea of buying new clothes except for the fact that I am trying to loose weight and now I will have brand new dresses that will be to big... Maybe I can take them in later :)
I am still waking up to work out, which is sooo hard somedays. But I keep telling myself that it is worth it. Just keep pushing play!!! At the end of this week I will have been doing P90X for 4 weeks! It really has gone by pretty fast and I already have seen some good changes in my muscle strength (even though you can't see it:) and in my flexibility. Just keep pushing play.
The other day the kids and I were taking Jeremy to work because Jac had been sick and I wanted to take him to the doctors. Well we were hit by a guy and to make a long story short we now have a rental car. It's a brand new Impala. It's so nice and I am so freaked out that something is going to happen and we will have to pay for it. The lady wanted me to by the insurance on it, but it was like $12.99 and day and we might have it 4-7 days... I don't think so. I am just praying and praying that nothing happens. Jac keeps saying "Mom car, pretty." Yeah, I wish buddy ;)
Well I better go, Reese is letting me know she is not happy being ignored.

P90X and The Smartest Dumb Dog I Know!

So, I haven't blogged about this for many reasons, but today Jeremy told me that I should... so I am :)
Jeremy was given some P90X dvd's and I have a friend who had told me about it before and loved the workouts and so I decided to give it a try. I am in the middle of my 3rd week out of 13 and so far I love it! I wake up every morning at 5:30am and workout... it's really great. Jeremy does his workouts at night, this way there is always someone with the kids and we don't have any interruptions.
Well, there is this exercise where you lay flat on your back with your legs spread straight out and you put one hand behind your head and take the other hand and hold it up towards the ceiling, then you sit straight up and cross over and touch the opposite toe with the hand. I have never been able to do this. I could do sit-ups in high school, but that was before two kids and a LONG time ago :) Well... today I did it. I didn't do all 25 reps, but I did a lot :) I am excited to keep going!

On another note...
Our dog Maya has figured out how to open our sliding glass door. See the door doesn't have a lock and so we have to put a bar down to lock it. The problem is that during the day we pick it up or Jac uses it as a sword... not fun. Well last night my sister brought a cookie over for me to try and I left it on the table. I was going to eat it after the kids were in bed. When I went back in the kitchen Maya was sitting in the middle of the floor and so I told her to go out and when I barred the door shut I noticed the cookie was gone (I didn't really need it, but it's the point of the matter). Then this morning, I noticed one of Reese's onesies outside and it was all chewed up... and just 15 minutes ago (as I was typing the first half of this blog) I heard a noise and so I got up and checked and she was on her way out the glass door... so I told her out and as she left I noticed something in her mouth so I followed her out and she had my bear that I got after my Grandma died (it was hers)... I am a little past mad now. Seriously what dog knows how to open a sliding glass door?

Some Changes

Things are going good right now. The kids are doing great and we are doing well too.
Jeremy and I have decided to get rid of our cell phones to save some money. (The clutch in his car went out and it will be $500 to fix it! Having one car is not fun). We are kind of having a hard time saying goodbye to the freedom that a cell phone gives, but hey when you can save $80 a month then it makes it a little easier :) I will let everyone know what our new "home number" is when we get it. The bright side of all this is that we will be able to get the Internet at home which will help us keep in contact with people and Jeremy will hopefully be able to pick up some freelance work on the side. Which is how he justified getting our super nice computer with the tax returns this last year :)
We also recently got family pictures done by our very talented friend Noelle. they turned out great and we had a blast getting them done. I will post a few for you to see. If you would like to see more or check out her work go to
Well the kidlets are sleeping and I am going to go read for a few minutes :) because that's the only time I can.
