rest of my birthday and my wicked awesome time in Dallas!

First of all, i need to tell you about our trip to dallas, it was about a month ago. we went to do the susan g. komen in dallas, it kinda holds a special place in our hearts and memories together. bonus, we got to spend time with di and angel, my sister and parental units. so we stayed the night with the quints on friday and saturday. it was so nice to be around them again. they are truely a blessing to us and we are so blessed to have them in our lives. so we got in and went to dinner at campisi's (honestly next to my friends is what i miss most about dallas), then we went back to their house and i ironed on letters on a shirt for noah for the race, since i don't really believe in ironing, i had to wait until we got there because we don't have an iron. angel was attempting to sew on patches to his uber cool scout uniform. he actually sews alot better than i can. then we all kinda crashed and got up the next morning really early. di had school and angel had a scout thing he was doing. we went to the race and i must say i did alot better than i thought i would. i finished in 1 hour and 24 minutes! isaac finished in 24 minutes-overachiever! it was good and they had all kinds ok SWAG, but people were getting really crazy with it and like pushing people and yelling, it was really not cool. i even saw this lady yelling and a survivor-really super not cool. people were piling in fruit, yogurt and water into their bags like it was the end of the world and that was the last bit of food left. we got lost from eachother for about an hour, which really stinks because i didn't have my phone. it was a big mess, but when the crowd dwindled we finally found eachother, it was a beautiful moment. we went back to take showers and meet up with my sister and her friend jenn to go to the fair. we had a good time, except it felt like the surface of the sun. i always forget why we don't go in the afternoon until we are already there. however, i did get my corndog that i didn't get last year. we don't really go to play games and such, we go for food and for the car show. we looked and dreamed about the cars we will get when isaac gets out of school and it was really fun. we also indulged in a shared turkey leg and ice cream. life was good but we were so tired from the race that i am not sure we were in the right mind set for fair time. we then headed back to the quints to meet up for dinner. we went to BJ's with my parents, sister, jenn and the quints. it was really nice to spend time with all the people we love. we then we BACK to the quints for a nice saturday night rest. it was a long day and the rest was more than welcome. we got up on sunday and got ready for church, we couldn't stay the whole time, but we were excited to be back in our old ward. angel and di made us french toast for breakfast and it was truely a treat. di introduced me to corn syrup on french toast, which is really good. we went to sacrament and then we headed home. when we got home we just poured ourselves into the couch, it was a bittersweet moment, we were glad to be home, but sad to leave the company of family and our best friends.
Now, my birthday! work was good, I had a big ticket client come in, so that was really nice. Then, we went to Buca di Beppo (my traditionaly b-day spot next to Texas Land & Cattle). we had coupons for an appetizer and a dessert for my b-day, hey I am not above coupons. we got my $40 b-day dinner for $20!!! I am not complaining. I got "the holiday", a gel bicycle seat and cute new booties to keep my toes warm. i loved all my gifts, my sweetheart knows me so well and always gets things i can use. then we went home and watched TV. it was such a nice birthday. so now, i have caught you up hope you enjoy.

It's my birthday!!!

Yeah!!! I am so glad, ok so I am a little sad I am so close to 3o, but you can't really avoid it. The daytime doesn't really feel very special to tell you the truth. Isaac has to work and we have no family and not really alot of friends down here. So, it is just like any other friday. Went grocery shopping and taking care of Noah. Although, I am going to try to get out and get myself a new birthday outfit. I have to work tonight...I know it gets better and better. After that I get to go on a date with my two favorite boys for dinner. i am really excited! The best thing is I do have Noah this year, las year I can remember being so preggers and so ready to have him and this year we get to share all those special moments together. I did get new borthday hair lastnight, which is really nice. I know I sound kinda down, but it has actually not been such a bad day. Will write more and let you know how the whole day was. OOh, i did get one of my birthday presents..."Shopaholic and Baby", I am excited I finally get to finish the whole series.

Mi Vida Loca

Ok, so I know that I owe an explaination as to why I haven't posted in a while. Here we go.
They sent me to an endocrinologist to find out what is going on with my "lazy thyroid", come to find out it's not lazy it's almost dead...humm...wish Lee Pace would come and bring it back to life (Pushing Daisies joke). So they bumped up my meds a whole lot and so far I am feeling much better. Still need some work but much better.
In other news and possibly the most stressful, my daddy was having some chest pains last week and went to the doctor. He can't have stress tests because it literally almost kills him, so they were supposed to order a heart cath. He gets to the hospital where he was supposed to have his heart cath and what did they order? That's right, a stress test, so he didnt' have it done. Flash Forward to the next day and he gets a heart cath. Come to find out he has a 70% blockage in the back of his heart so they can't get to it any other way but surgery. You guessed it...Bypass surgery number 3!!! ON HALLOWEEN!!! So, I drive 6 hours with Noah on Thursday night and got to Tyler around 11 or so, went to bed around 1 got up at 4:45 to get ready to got to the hospital. He went into surgery at 7 and everything went really well and what was supposed to be a single bypass turned into a triple bypass. I had to leave before he got out of surgery, but they were wiring him back together when I left so I felt pretty good about leaving. Anyhow, he is doing well with the possibility of going home tomorrow.
Anyways, I will write about our super awesome tubular time in Dallas pretty soon, I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on.

I know you've been waiting

Yes, Yes, it's that time again. It's almost fall. The weather is cooler. The trees start to give the ground brown, crispy leaves. And, most importantly, Tyra picks another 13 hopefuls. As you are all well aware I am a big fan. This year my top pick is Analeigh, she is just gorgeous in a not so obvious kinda way. My least fave is Elena, she seems like she just tries to be different to get a reaction out of everyone. She was crying at the makeover because they gave her red hair-Red is hot, your boring mid-length brown mush should be falling down and thanking the Hair Pixies for fixing that nasty mane. Everyone one esle is kinda meteocre at best. I like Marjorie a great deal as well. The only one that I am a little creeped out about is Isis, she's a dude. Ok enough ANTM. PS, I am already in need of Tori and Dean, I am having some fierce withdrawls.
Anyways, I am working at an Aveda Concept Salon now (Dylan Brooke's), it is nice and a good stepping stone, there is alot of opportunity for education and growth, which I am really excited about. Additonally, I have a new friend, Eli. That takes the Austin friend count to...drum roll, please...ONE! Well, one friend that I really "hang out" with I guess you could say. She is from Baton Rouge and super cool. Shout out! The problem is, that I miss my friends from Dallas. Two come to mind automatically, you know who you are. My Monday hang outs with one, are what I miss most of all. I didn't have a snow cone all summer!
Noah started Mother's Day Out on Sept 3rd. It is so good for him and I can see that he is slowly getting more social with kids his own age. He plays with some other babies at church and stuff. I can't believe he is going to be a year old soon. Where has the past year gone? This time last year I was getting put on bedrest. Now, I am giving baths and finding cherrios in mysterious places. He is growing up so fast, and I am so not ready for it.
At work, we have started a Biggest Loser! I am really excited and ave been working out like a beast! I should start a work out blog and then I would have to blog and work out more ;).
Isaac is good, he has finally settled on Physical Therapy and we have accepted the 8 year school challenge that it will entale. I don't really see the point of him doing anything else, PT has been all he's talked about since we've met.
As for me, I am good. I am struggling right now, with missing my Mama and Daddy. Not that they lived in Dallas, anyways. The thing was we had friends that we considered family, so it was hard to notice that we didn't have family around. Now, that we don't have the company of close friends OR family, I notice how much we want them near by. I am excited about the new friends I am making at church and at work, and know that those blues will go away. Other than that I am blissful. I love my life and I am so blessed.

So I was good at blogging for like a week

Hey, sorry it's been a while, we've had a busy couple of weeks.
They are still trying to get my meds regulated to get my body working the way it is supposed to. Other than that I am good. Isaac is liking his job and has decided what he wants to got to school for. Noah is...Noah. He is the best kid in the whole world. He has this way of brightening everyone's day. He starts pre-school (Wens Only) on Sept 3rd. It was just another way I have seen how much and how fast he is growing. He is such a beautiful spirit. I am going to work Wens mornings and he is going to socialize with kids his own age. I think it will be good for him, I will have issues though.
I have to say how truely blessed we are. We have a wonderful family and all the things we need in life. Spritually, physically, and emotionally. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. And, friends like you, who will tune in to read my ramblings. Love ya!

I forgot! (suprise, suprise)

Ok, so...I did forget to mention my obsession with a show called "Shear Genius" I don't know who outside of hairstyling actually watches that show. They throw down all the technical terms that the general public don't understand. Kinda like the line in "Legally Blonde" where she mentions ammonium thyglocolate. Anywho, I do love it, and have even got Isaac to liking it. It's another one of my shows that he won't admit that he likes. As for Tori and Dean, he is definately not on the boat with that one. Speaking of which we had a new episode last night, so let me catch you up. So, T & D bought a new house because they are in a rental and T wanted to be out before the new baby gets here. So they have to furnish the house and move in like in 3 weeks. IMPOSSIBLE! So, they are going to look at all the decorations and furnishings and D gets really frustrated that the decisions aren't being made quickly...MEN! Don't they know these things take time? I mean decorating your first house is in the childhood dream along with outing a curtain on your head for a veil and carrying baby dolls around as actually children! Anyways, so T had a shower and threw D a "Daddy Shower" (I love those, Isaac was supposed to have one, but we could never get it pinned down). T is doing way too much for how far along she is and D is starting to get nervous that she is doing too much. They're trying to find a pre-school for Liam (which I feel for, because I am trying to find one for Noah). So, there is your T&D:HSH update! Hope you enjoyed that.
Additionally, I had an interview at a Salon yesterday. It's exactly what I pictured when I imagined working in Austin. Downtown on 6th, hip, really a cool place. I would work on Saturdays and a couple nights a week. I have another interview tomorrow, so we will see how that one goes. I am excited, I really do miss hair and would love to work slowly back into doing hair.
Working out is going good. I haven't told everyone through blog yet, but I have a problem with my thyroid, which was keeping me from loosing baby weight. Apparently, my thyroid was barely working. Which is a problem. It's good to know that there was a medical reason I had not lost a single pound since little man was born. I still haven't lost any weight, but I am toning up quite a bit. Today was good because Wednesday is "swimming day", I swim for about 30 minutes then hot tub and sauna for a while. It's really nice. Swimming is so cathartic for me. It takes me back. Love it!
Ok well, I need to go, it's getting sippy cup time, so I need to go do some shopping for the proper sippy cup. I can't believe Noah will be 8 months old on Saturday! I look at those pictures from bringing him home from the hospital and ask myself where the time has gone. Love and kisses and lots of misses!
