Because it was time...

Ok this week is crazy busy so I'll be quick!

Last Monday I cut off over 10 inches of my hair! Yes. I just got up Monday morning and decided it was time. I was tired of my long BORING hair. It just looked soooo unhealthy. Besides that it is way too hot in the summer. Anyways, I like it... I think. I defineltely like it better now than when it was long.  I'm actually just starting to get used to it. I can't even put it in a pony tail anymore! What will I do?!?!

Here it is...

Miss My Boogs

Sunday afternoon Noah flew to Texas with his Poppy. This is his first trip away from home and it's for three nights! I really miss him. I know he is having a wonderful time though. I also want Jeremy's family to be able to spend time with the boys. It's got to be difficult for them since they live all the way in Texas.

I've been trying to take advantage of the extra free time. Still not much free time though. Asa is sooo demanding! I've gotten some homework done, went to the gym, packed a few boxes and even hung out with Ash.

It sounds like they are keeping Noah busy. Yesterday they went to Huricane Harbor. Today they went to an aquarium. I tried to talk to him on the phone a couple of times but he was just too busy (he is still just learning to use the phone). I'm happy he is having a wonderful time and the-in-laws are really enjoying him too. He is flying back tomorrow with Moppy. I can't wait to see him!

Dealing with Frustration!

Lately I have been under alot of stress. The boys are a handful and it seems like there is never enough time to get my homework done. Somedays Asa cries for hours! I can get so worked up and frustrated when something goes wrong. I have been losing my temper and geting upset over even the littlest things. I've really been working on trying to keep myself controlled. Yesterday was one of those days to test me.

I had two quizes and an assignemt to get done. They were due at 9 am today. When I sat down yesterday morning to start them I realized my internet connection wasn't working. After making a call to Time Warner Cable, I was informed that they wouldn't be able to fix it until this afternoon. Ugh! I needed a back up plan for my homework and quick. It's not like I can take both boys to the library and do homework there. They are too loud and a huge distraction to me. And Noah could never sit still for me. This was so frustrating. I was really upset and angry but I worked hard to keep it under control. As it turns out Ash was off work yesterday and she let me come over last night to get my homework done. She even watched the boys for me so I wasn't distracted. *Thanks Ash* After I finshed my homework we sat around and chatted for a while. It ended up being a very nice evening. Now I can honestly say that I thank God for my internet screwing up! He took a frustrating situation and turned into into a good evening.

I need a vacation or a nap would be fine!

Wow... Sometimes I feel like I put way to much on my plate this summer. New baby, summer school, and church stuff on top of it all. And we're moving in 2 1/2 weeks! It just seems like there is not enough time in the day. There is so much that I want to do and so much that I need to do. So what am I doing on here when I should be doing housework or even homework!? Jeremy has been a great help with everything. He gives me a beak from the boys so I can study. We even take turns watching the boys so we can work out. Going to the gym everyday has been such a wonderful stress reliever. Not to mention my personal Bible study has really kept me from going crazy. Of course, blogging is very relaxing to me too. I think the next few weeks will be even more hectic. Almost everyday on the calender is full. I just need to remember to rest when I can and take time for myself!

Meeting new people

Being a stay at home mom makes it difficult to make and keep friends. I've met a lot of great people the last few years. Unfortunately, many of us have gone separate ways. We left a lot of our friends behind when we moved from the Mid-MO area to KC. Even some of the friends I've made in Kc have moved away! It's been really discouraging to lose these friendships. It's great to keep up with old friends over the phone and through facebook but it's just not the same as hanging out face to face.

I still have a couple of great friends out here to hang out with but I've been really down lately about not having many friends. It's especially disappointing when I'm unable to keep up with my old friends. It seems like everyone is too busy to talk on the phone anymore. I'm sure I have been driving Jeremy crazy whining and complaining about it. I started a Ladies Bible Study a couple of weeks ago and was able to meet some of the women in my church. It's been nice so far. We talked about taking our problems to God. It seems like many of us call our moms or complain to our husbands when we are having a problem. That's fine to some extent but sometimes we neglect to take our problems to God! I finally took this issue to God. I really feel like he has heard my prayers and I'm already feeling much better about it.

Not only am happy to be meeting women through my church's Bible study but God has opened up other opportunities as well. Today I went to the mall with a girl that I went to college with. We never really talked or hung out at school. I saw through facebook that she and her husband had moved to KC recently. I contacted her a few weeks ago to see if she'd be interested in getting together. It was really nice to be able to just walk around and talk. We seem to have a lot in common. She is a mom too. Hopefully we can get together again sometime. I was also able to hang out with my best friend Ash today. We haven't hung out much since I had Asa. And to top off a great day, I met a really cool person when I got home tonight. I was coming into my apartment and ran into my neighbor who I met once a month ago. We got to talking. She is a christian and a mom of two little boys! We stood outside talking for almost ten minutes. She was really nice and it sounds like we have so much in common. She even invited me to a mom's group! We are gonna get together soon and take the boys out to play together. I'm really looking forward to that. I am just so thankful for what God is doing in my life right now! If only I had taken this to Him sooner.

Vampires + Werewolves = Chick flick


Jeremy and have realized how important it is for us to date, especially now that we have two little boys. I really regret that we didn't date more often before we had kids (and when we actually had money!) Our goal is to go on two dates a month. Last night we went out. Madeline came over and watched the boys for us. I know the boys enjoyed spending time with her and I'm pretty sure she enjoyed it too!

First Jeremy and I grabbed a bite to eat at taco bell. It was just nice to be able to focus on each other and not worry about bottles or diapers. After we ate, we went to see Eclipse. Jeremy really likes the Twilight Saga. He has read all the books. Sometimes I tease him about it because the books are kinda girly. When we bought our tickets, the usher joked, "how dare you drag him to see Eclipse." I laughed because HE"S the one that drug ME to see it! Anyways the movie was really good and we had a great time! We were back by 8:30pm. I feel bad asking family to babysit when we can't afford to pay. Hopefully someday we will be able to. It looks like our next date will be later this month for our 4 year anniversary. Where has the time gone?

Independence Day

It was another great Fourth of July. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. I just love hot summer days, BBQ, homemade ice cream, water gun fights and fireworks! Like almost every other fourth, we went up to my parents. The rest of mom's family joined us (except Grandma Probst, not her favorite holiday!) Matt and all the other guys(pyromaniacs!) are into the LOUD firecrackers. They seem to get louder every year! I'm more into the pretty stuff. I also like sparklers but not sparkler bombs. Noah really liked the fireworks too. He kept saying pow pow pow! The only thing that scared him was the smoke bombs. Everytime we lit one, he would run to the nearest person to be picked up. Matt said "anything with that much smoke that didn't explode would of scared me too." Oh and one more thing that Noah was afraid of... Bud. Bud is Mike and Colette's pug puppy. He was so tiny and playful but Noah didn't want anything to do with him!

I tried making some homemade ice cream but it didn't turn out. I guess it got salt in it. I think my container must have a crack or something because the same thing happened the last time we made some. Jeremy and I spent a lot of the night taking turns staying inside with Asa. We didn't really want him around the loud stuff. It was also a really rainy day. Just when it got dark enough for the night time fireworks, it started pouring. We made it home before 11 o'clock! That is probably the earliest we have ever ended our fourth of July celebration. We still have leftover fireworks so we may go back to mom and dad's to shoot the rest later this week.

Family Photo Shoot

This past spring Jeremy's cousin Maegan came up from Texas to visit. We had a wonderful week. She is such a sweet and fun person. Noah really took a liking to her as well. Maegan has a passion for photography. She will be going to school for it this fall. While she was here we went out to the park and had a family photo shoot. She took some fabulous pictures and I thought I'd share them.
