What would we do without our Girlfriends. I am very thankfully to have two girlfriends who I can for sure count on anytime I need them. They are always there for me to call when I just need to Chit Chat, complain about David, to tell them something new Easton is doing, or just when I need advice. The first friend and I have been best friends since the 6 grade and we have never fought a day in our lives...hard to believe i know, but we never had an argument, and I am very thankful for that. We are a day apart. So technical we knew each other from birth. We were probably talking to each other in the nursery about all the things we wanted to do when we got older. We always dreamed of living on the same piece of land and building our houses on opposite sides and we would have a huge lake between our houses and in the middle of the lake we would have a island and we would go on it to have parties...oh how our lives have changed. You never know we can still live our dream out!! My other girlfriend I met in College and we have been close since then. We talk every chance we can on our drive into work. We are so different but yet so much a like. I wished she lived closer to me, but the phone calls we have together make us seem only a few miles away. Well until she says it is X degrees in Dallas and we are always 10 degrees warmer. She is expecting her first baby in December. I can't wait to meet Addison. I am truly blessed to have TWO Best Girlfriends.

I on the other hand was a not good girlfriend this past weekend. I confused my days for Kate's baby shower, and I messed it. I truly was not a good girlfriend. Kate has already told me not to worry about it and that she wasn't upset, but I still feel really bad that I missed it. I guess I am getting older and mine mind is going, but that is no excuse. I really have some making up to do!!

I just want to say Thank You to the both of you!! You guys both mean the world to me. And you both know that I will be there for anything!!!


New Addition

Easton has yet another girl cousin! David's middle brother Michael and fiance Morgan had a baby girl - Madelyn - on the 15th (day before my birthday). She weighed 6 lbs 9 oz. and was 19 inches long (I think). She is so precious. What through me for a loop was Micheal and Aunt Moobs (that is David's name for her) went into the Hospital on Tuesday the 15th around 1:00 p.m. and had Madelynn around 6:00 p.m., they were released from the Hospital on Wednesday the 16th around 8 p.m. Boy do they get you in and then kick you out. I was shocked when I heard about that. But they are home and doing great. We got to see them last weekend. We went up on Saturday and I cooked them dinner and then we went back on Sunday (no we didn't drive back to BMT, we stayed in a hotel) and I cooked them breakfast and then I cooked them lunch. I wished I could have done more. Check her out

Doesn't David look good holding a girl lol...get it out your head. We are not ready for another one, give us a year and maybe we will be. I could have slept for hours...isn't she precious!!!

Easton def. has the Lang's Eyes... Easton with Uncle Mike

Aunt Moobs and Maddie (don't hate me Morgan)

And the best for last...Maddie with her beautiful eyes open!!


Fly Birdie

Let Dove Season be open. While I was doing my garage sale hunting, David and Easton were shoot doves. I know what you are think, that is so mean that you guys kill birds or any animal for that matter. But think of it like this, if we didn't kill off the animals we would be over populated. Some animals reproduce quicker that others. So therefore we must control the population. If we don't then it will be like that movies "Birds" we will be attacked by them. So David and Easton dress to the 9's in the Camo and ventured out to Freddy and Kristen's back yard. David said Easton cried the first time David shot the gun. He didn't understand why, because we play hunt all the time. So David put him in Freddy's truck where he enjoyed himself. The boys got a couple of birds, which is better than no. The dove were flying really high!! Here is a picture of my two babies enjoying some outdoor time together.

No you can't have them, they are mine!!!


Today is Tuesday another day for Random Thoughts. Click on the link to read other people's random thoughts! Let the spillage of thoughts begin!


Why is when you don't fill like giving your man some loving and you tell them no they pout like a 2 year old. Come on get over it. I am not saying any names here...(cough cough) David, like I would be talking about any other man, because I have 5 other husbands in my life, didn't you know. He does this everytime. It aggervates me to no end.

I hate/love the rain. I hate it when I am not home because I cannot curl up on the couch in my blanket and when people don't know how to drive in the rain. Why is when it sprinkles two drops people slam on their brakes. Are you serious! For real?!? I also don't like to ride with people who put the foot on the pedal then the brake, pedal brake, pedal brake, I had to ride home with someone who did that all the way from Austin, it made me nausea. Just put your foot on the pedal and drive for heavens sake. But I love it when it makes our grass green and our land beautiful, but not when it make mud holes and you can't mow your green grass that is 2 feet tall. Tanner almost gets lost in our jungle of grass.

Why is it, I have one client that calls me and announces who she is and what company EVERY TIME! She could call me 5 times in one day and every time say Angela this Bertha from Super Clean Floors (name and company are made up). I can even says her name and she still tells me her name and the company. Umm hello I have caller ID! I don't care if I spoke to her two seconds ago. It isn't like she talks fast either she talks sloooowww.

Alright I gots to get back to work.


The Beach

I know Labor Day happened weeks ago, but I have been so busy with work that I haven't had time to talk about it. David and I were invited to Sargent to hang out with Kristen and Freddy. We had a blast of a time. My feet hurt like hell from walking bear foot on the sand, but Easton had an even better time playing in the sand. I am not a big ocean person. Back in high school, I know many years ago, working on 10. The current was going out and it was taking me with it, I had to holler for one of my friends to get me because I was getting to the point where I couldn't touch anymore. I have since then not been afraid but not fond of the water. Plus I hate the sand it gets EVERYWHERE!!! Here is pictures of Easton having a grand time.

The joys of being a Mommy

Ok so early in the week I talked about a story that I would share with you guys later this week, well today is the day. I am going to pre-warn you about the pictures that will be posted in this blog.

All of you know that we are potty training our little boy, which I might add he is doing great! We are three weeks into potty training. So when we are at home we usually let him run around with just a shirt and socks on. He does better that way. So last Saturday we had to go out of town so we to up and Easton went potty on the potty so we just left his underwear off. David and I started to load the car and Easton wanted to be outside too, what is new. So he climbed in the car by himself and was playing in there. I told him when he needed to go potty to let me know..."K"... So I went back inside and I was walking back out with pillows when Easton said Momma Poo, Momma Poo. I asked him you need to go poo he started shaking his head yes. So I quickly got him and ran to the potty. I am super excited that my child whom has only been potty training for 2 weeks at this time is going poop on the potty. I am jumping with joy!! So David comes in and says Babe I think the car smells like Sh*t I said surely not. I would have Sh*t on me...

So I look myself and what do you know I have Sh*t on me, not a lot just a very tiny bit. I walk into our Laundry room where David is walking back in from outside and I telling him I think there might be sh*t in the car....he just starts laughing and say oh yeah there is lol. It is on one of your Pampered Chef Catalogs. I am thinking great. No biggie. So I go and take a look for myself....(beware) and this is what I see:

My first thought was good lord that is a lot of Sh*t for a little boy and my second thought was this is funny and I need to take a picture. After I done laughing I throw the sh*t away and go to get my carpet cleaner and Lysol. And as you can tell my son gets crumbs everywhere so I figure since I am already cleaning this up I mine as well clean up all the crumbs that are on the floor of my car. I cleaning along and forgetting what just happened and I saw a chicken nugget on my flip flop I go to get the "nugget" and it wasn't a nugget!! When I picked it up I said ERG...and Dave comes out and says what I said SH****T with my hands up like an Italian man....I started laughing again I go inside to wash my hands and here comes David with the Hand Sanitizer, I think he pumped out half the bottle in my hand. So after I cleaned that up. I told Easton, you don't Poop in Mommy's car you poop on the potty, he starts looking for the dog and shaking his head and pointing at the dog saying..."dog poop", I said no you poop, again pointing at the dog saying, "dog poop," then he starts telling the dog no no no no. I was in disbelief a two year old is blaming the poop in the dog!

Moral of the story if it looks like a nugget, check twice. And to never under estimate your children on how young they learn to blame other people for what they did. Here is the mister pooper himself, getting all big:



I know I have been away a while...it has been busy here on the Job Site! Today is Corporate Extension Deadline...so we are hustling and bustling to get these returns out. The man in charge has taken a liking to the door that separates his office and mine to be open!!! Let's just say that my roommate and I aren't to fond of it. He thinks we get more work down. I will have to agree...because my computer faces the opening of the door which means he can see if I am surfing the net or not. This bites.

Easton's potty training is going really well. Expect for what happened on Saturday morning. But I will talk about that one day this week. I was going to focus hard core on the potty training thing this weekend, but I am going to be a new Aunt...David's brother and fiance are having their baby today...I am trying to get her to hold out until tomorrow...why you might ask, because my Birthday is tomorrow!!! Yes you can send me a gift, you don't need to ask. Back to Easton, he only had two accidents yesterday, one was at lunch and the other one was at snack and the teacher couldn't get him to the potty quick enough. I am so proud of my little boy. We have only been potty training for 3 weeks!!!

My desk is a wreck!! Papers are everywhere!!! I am out of control...lol i have to laugh cause the man in charge says it a lot! Especially around deadlines. He waits until the last min. to check returns...

Ok I need to get back to work...oh and since we have the door open in it is freezing in my office all day everyday!


What's Cooking

So last week I talked about a new recipe that I tried when Easton decided he wanted to play in the yogart, waffle & cheese...so without further adue here is the Feature Recipe for the Week:
Jerk Chicken Nachos

(this twist on a classic is so easy to make and isperfect for a casual night in with friends)

6 cups of Tortilla chips

3 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese blend

2 tablespoons Jamaican Jerk Rub, divided (ask me how to get the rub)

1 small yellow or red bell pepper or combination

1 lime

2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup sour cream and 1 teaspoon additional Jamaican Jerk Rub (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 425F. Arrange tortilla chips in a slightly overlapping layer on Large Round Stone or Large Bar Pan.

2. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine chicken, cheese and 1 tablespoon of the jerk rub; mix gently using Small Mix 'N Scraper. Sprinkle chicken mixture evenly over tortilla chips. Bake 5 - 7 minutes or until cheese is melted; remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack.

3. Meanwhile, dice bell pepper with Santoku Knife. Cut lime in half crosswise. Juice half of the lime using Citrus Press into Small Batter Bowl; adding remain jerk rub and bell pepper and mix well.

4. Snip cilantro in mincing cup of Herb Keeper using Kitchen Shears. Slice remaining lime half using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped blade; cut slices in half using Utility Knife.

5 Spoon bell pepper mixture over nachos; sprinkle evenly with cilantro. If desire, combine sour cream and additional jerk rub in resealable bag; trim corner to allow sour cream to flow through. Pipe sour cream mixture over nachos. Garnish with lime slices.

David and I really enjoyed this meal! And we hope you do too! It is such an easy peasy meal and it is also light! You will also noticed in the picture that one side, that is because I didn't think David would like all the bell peppers and what not so I left them off on that side.

(For all the words in Bold ask me how you can get those. Thanks!!)


This a new Feature that I am going to be doing is Random Thoughts, so let the randomness begin. Fyi if you would like to read other peoples thoughts just click on the link!


So I don't know what got me thinking this today, but do you believe in Hypnosis? Do you really think people don't know what they are doing and that people really get hypnotized? I think it is all fabricated. Do you know anyone that has been hypnotized....makes you think.

Why is it when I have dog duty that he wakes up 4 times throughout the night to go potty and when David has dog duty he only wakes up one time? Seems unfair to me lol. And we got Easton going to bed by himself...he is becoming a big boy.

I have learned really quick that through this whole potty training business we have to go straight home. I tried to stop yesterday to go to Babies R Us to get those protectors things and when I got him out of his car seat his pants were wet...go ahead put a mark on your calendars...one mark for being peed on. Isn't life grand.

I am ready to eat my chocolate cake...but it is five mins before 2. I usually eat my sweats for the day during that time.

I am so excited because on Thursday I get my hair did!!! I think I am going to go for a mullet...why oh why do people do mullets? I mean who is their hairdressers for heavens sakes, they should be fired!! How would you like you hair cut today. Umm I think I am going to go short on the top and long in the back...oh you mean you want one of my Special Mullets cuts, coming right up! I swear when I go to Wally World I see at least 3 people with a mullet and a I shake my head every time! Next time I will try to get a picture of a lady with it.

I have alot of organize in my office today, but I don't feel like doing it...wow I am have said that for a couple days now, that is why I have a lot of organizing of paperwork to do. I keep putting it off. Up it is 2:00 need to go and eat my cake lol. I will organize later!
