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!

Ok so, I have a new show that I absolutely love. Before I tell you, you have to promise to love me and not judge me. Ok, so I sat down to watch the last 15 minutes of this show one day, just to satisfy curiosity. The next thing I knew a whole other episode of this show had gone by. That was it, I was officially addicted. I love this show!!! Most of all, I feel so much differently than I did more recently about the main person in this show. I kinda didn't like her, didn't dislike her, just really didn't care what she did either way. So, I bet you are wondering about my new found love for Tori Spelling aren't you? Yes, I am addicted to "Tori and Dean, Home Sweet Hollywood". I love seeing her adventures and her super cute little baby Liam (which was a name in the running for Noah). She even calls her son "Monkey" and "Little Man", how weird is that? Anyhow, I have actually grown quite fond of the show and actually have caught myself actively seeking out her book "sTORI Telling". I can't believe this happened to me. Am I so desperate to connect with the outside world that I have to cling to Tori Spelling? Is her life really that much more interesting that mine? Is it the things that I see we have in common? Is that the reason I am drawn to her? AHHHHH!!! Anyways, so I love the show and you can't change my mind, I even wish she was coming here for a book signing!
So, I got to talk with my newest best friend on the phone yesterday. It was really good. I don't know if this friend really knows how much her friendship has meant to me the last 10 or so months, I can't believe we have been friends that long now! Anyways, it was good because we actually don't talk on the phone that often, we are more of a texting and emailing kind of communication type friendship. We talk all the time when we are in person, but on the phone both of us are out of our element, so it is easier to text and email. I miss her and can't wait to see her soon.
Last Thursday PumperNikki was in town for a conference for work and we had lunch while she was in town. I took her to my favorite place her to eat...Magnolia Cafe. I take everyone there when they are visiting for the first time. It was so good to catch up and it reminded me of how much I miss her. The funny thing is, we could be away from eachother for months and when we get together it's like no time has passed at all. The sign of a good friendship!
So that''s what's been going on lately, I really am trying to get new pics of Peanut up, but we just got a new computer so we are trying to get everything moved over. Hugs, kisses and lots of misses!

My run in with the Austin PoPo's

Yeah, so everyone who knows me knows that I from time to time can have a bit of a lead foot. I really wouldn't consider it lead, more like the heavy plastic they make ear rings out of. So I was having a hard day. Noah, who was doing so well sleeping through the night in Dallas, seems to have some issues sleeping for long stretches of time in the dark hours. So, I hadn't slept very much the night before and looked a hot mess, I was running late-all kinds of things against me. Well, I was going 43 mph in a 30 mph zone, and a cop had the nerve to pull me over!!!! (I deserved to be pulled over) Anyways, so I see the undeniable flashing lights, and I pulled over like a good girl. If Noah wasn't with me I may have contemplated a chase, but I digress. I pull into a park with lots of people (i am no fool, i watch the news), and the officer gets out of his car, I stomach drops as I see him in my side mirror and turn off my radio. I roll my window down, anxious, I have heard alot about how hard the cops are here in Austin. I see...a nice older man maybe 50 or so, and say in my cutest "I'm a dunce" voice, "Hi Officer", he introduced himself and I said "I was running late to pick up my husband and had my mind elsewhere and I was speeding". He smiled and said "Well, yes, that is why I pulled you over. May I see your driver's license and insurance?" "Well, see offier, I don't have it with me, I was running out of the house and totally forgot it!" "Do you have your insurance?" With a trembling hand I fumble around my messy car, "here is my old one (expired in MAY!!!)." I looks at my registration and inspection and gives me "benefit of the doubt" since they were both just renewed and you need current insurance to do that. Alas, I give him my license number and he goes back to the interceptor to call it in. I am praying the whole time! He comes back...with...A WARNING! Heavenly Father answered the prayer of a desperate woman. A nice police officer takes pity on a strung out mother. The skies opened up and poured sunshine right on top of me. It was a good day. Anyways, I have been really good about driving since I got pregnant with Noah, and I had a little slip up, I am being careful...I may not be so smiled upon next time! With that, I say drive safe!
