Go Away!

I was watching the news the other day and in their entertainment report they were talking about this new movie Precious. If you haven't heard about it here's the run down. It's about a girl who's father rapes her and she fathers 2 of his children, while her own mom beats and degrades her. There may be more to it, but that's basically what I got. I can't think of a more depressing movie. I graduated in social work and I've worked with people like this. So I really can't see paying money to be depressed. Anyway as I was watching the news they started talking about the producer of this movie. And guess who it is? Oprah! Of course! Now, don't worry, I won't blog about her since I went back and looked at last years posts and I blogged about my love/hate relationship with her, 8 times.!! That's too many, and it's annoying.
But it got me thinking about the celebrities I wish would just go away. Here's my list and I would love to know yours. So leave a comment and let me know.
  • Mariah Carey: Note to Mariah- stop wearing as little clothes as possible. You're too old and it's not cute. Oh, and we don't believe you're a size 2.
  • Jennifer Aniston: I'm still mad at you for posing basically naked and then saying "I don't know why people care about me?". Really, then don't do something that screams look at me.
  • Jon Gosselin: Not sure if he counts as a celebrity. But I've had enough.
  • Oprah: Depends on the day
  • Any celebrity who has a baby and then poses in a bikini, after only 2 weeks, on the cover a magazine. (Tori Spelling, Heidi Klum, Jamie Presley). That's annoying and it doesn't send a good message to young girls. Plus, now that's I've had a c-section, I don't believe any of you who say you went to the gym and worked it off in 2 weeks, and had a c-section. What you mean to say is you doctor did some major work.
  • Miley Cyrus: (Thanks for the reminder Beth). This girls gets under my skin soooo much!!! It's a good thing Bella's too young to know who she is.

I know if I think about it longer I'll have more to add. That's my list for now. Who do you want to go away?

Tis the season...

For hot tubing! I can't wait. I look forward to this time of year so much. Seth drains it every year in the spring and then fills it when it gets cold. I personally could have it running all year. But since I do nothing to help with the upkeep, I have to take what I can get.
I'm not a fan of snow. But watching it from the view of my hot tub makes it a little more enjoyable. So bring on the cold weather (if it means I get my hot tub). PS- For the record the only reason we have a hot tub is because the person that lived her before us left it. And it looks nothing like the one pictured. It's much smaller, but it works.

Back in saddle again...well, sort of

I feel like I'm kind of getting back to my normal self. I made it to church for the first time in months. Well, sort of. I only went to sacrament and that's just because it was the primary program and Bella had worked so hard on her part. I also made it to the gym for the first time in months.

And I did laundry. Yuck! I hate laundry, but at least I did it.
The babies are only 7 weeks old. But, if they could sleep through the night I would be in heaven!

Me & My Girls

My friend Adrian took some amazing pictures of me and the girls last week. It's great having a friend who's a photographer! It's so hard not to post them all since I think they're all wonderful. But here are a just a few.
Next up will be Seth and the girls......we'll see if he'll go for that.

Confessions #2

Last year I copied my cousin and did a confessions post. It was so liberating that I've decided to do it again. I've kept a few of the same things from my last post and I might add more as I think of them.

  1. I saw Paula Abdul in concert with my dad and Fred when I was 12. I don't know if I should admit that. Although I did admit that I saw Elton John in my last confessions post. I'm not sure which is more embarrassing?

  2. I'm pretty sure there's an 80 year old woman trapped in my body. My husband will tell you I'm basically blind, deaf and I consider 10:00pm late.
  3. I'm as punctual as most men. There have been many times I've had the girls and myself ready for church in the car waiting for Seth. That's not normal, I know.
  4. I Lie. A lot. Some times I don't even notice. Like when I bring you soup, and you ask if I made it myself and I say yes. What I mean is I bought it at Marie Calendars.
  5. I have no fashion sense. Some days I can pull off a good outfit, but most days I'm one step away from wearing white socks and tevas, which I hear is a fashion faux pas.
  6. I love doing cross word and sudko puzzles. The only other people I know who like doing them are Stanley from the Office and my dad. Oh and I bet if I went to a retirement home I might see some people doing them.
  7. I have never breast fed my babies. For all the people that just assumed I did other wise and have asked how it was going; see #4 for what I probably told them.
  8. I've been told by friends that I'm more like the man in my relationship. (see #1 & #2)
  9. I watched Adventures in Babysitting so much as a kid I wore out the tape. To this day I can quote the WHOLE thing. I could pull a rain man right now and do the entire movie if you want to come over.
  10. I usually have more than one treat a day, but I'll tell you I only had one. (see #4)
  11. I have a guilty pleasure that I watch on E!. I won't tell you what it is, you might judge me. (No, it's not The girls next door)
  12. In 2008 I saw 1 movie in the theater.
  13. I can't dance. If you have any doubt I know there's a copy of the skit the SBO's did my senior year, floating around out there, to prove it.
  14. Some times I can't tell the twins apart.
  15. I'm a huge nerd. (see #1, 2, 5, 6, 12, 13)

Seriously, that felt good. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. The question is will I still have friends after this post?

Feeding Time

I'll do just about anything to keep Claire away from the twins when I'm feeding them. So the other day I got the older girls some food and Bella set up their room for a picnic. They listened to music, played, and eat. It was great. And I enjoyed quiet time while the babies ate.
Some times I feel bad for the babies, because they spend most of the time in their crib. But it's the one place Claire can't get to. In Claire's defense, she does think she's loving them. It's just loves quickly turn into pokes and shakes.
I think the most impressive part of this post, to me, is that I was able to feed both babies and take a picture.

Wii Help

A few months ago the lady from the biggest looser was on Ellen talking about this new game, the Wii Active. Since then I have thought of nothing else. It looked so awesome. I feel like a little kid at Christmas, because I want it so bad.
It has all these different activities you can do and it keeps track of the calories you're burning. It also has some month long or longer programs and it keeps track of your progress, like your weight when you start and finish.
I'm sure I'm not explaining how cool it is, but believe me, it looked awesome!!
We don't have a Wii and I can't decided it we should get one. The price has come down, so I feel like now might be a good time to get one. But, I'm wondering if we'll really use it.
If you have one, here's a few questions I have.
Do you really use it or is it just your husband that uses it? Is Bella (almost 5 year old) too young to use it? Are there games for young kids? I don't know a lot about the Wii fit, but are the fit and active the same or different? I still have my gym pass. So if you have something like this, do you just stop going to the gym and only do this? I'm confused.
I'm really clueless when it comes to stuff like this, so your opinion is really appreciated.

Pictures & Announcements

We had some pictures taken of the twins and it was so hard to decide which ones to use for the announcements. Almost everything turned out great.
My friend Adrian made the announcement for me. Again this was hard to choose because she made 4 or 5 for me to choose from and they all looked great.
We sent the announcements out this weekend and I decided to post it because we just weren't able to send out as many as we had planned. Just sending them to our families was making us broke. So if you didn't get one, please accept this post as our apology.
