7 Random facts about...ME!!

Okay I was hit by my friend Ciara. As soon as I read on her blog she had been hit I knew I was next, so here it goes...

1. I confess...I'm addicted to chocolate. I have to have something chocolatey daily and especially after lunch and dinner but its worse after dinner for sure. The best part about it I don't even feel guilty about eating it!!

2. My toes always have to be painted...ALWAYS! I change my polish at least every two weeks even in the winter. In the summer I change it weekly or more. I also give myself pedicures but I love it even more when I'm not the one doing them!

3. My thumbs are different sizes. My left thumb looks normal my a club thumb. What is that you might be thinking. Well...its fatter and shorter, sadly it almost looks like a toe. My brother used to tease me when I was little. But that okay I'm used to it by now, the thumb I mean not the teasing ;)

4. I'm baby hungry. I know Mikaila is only 15 months but I'm starting to want another baby. Hopefully we'll start trying in about 6 months...I'll let you know

5. I am a shopaholic, yes I can admit it. I would shop daily if I could afford it. At one time in my life, I worked three jobs to support my habit. I like to shop online, the mall, outlets and for anything you name it. It doesnt even have to be for me I just like to shop. I think I'd be a fantastic personal shopper because I could shop and someone else would be paying. So if anyone ever want to pay me to shop for them... just let me know.

6. I am Friends with Mikael's ex-girlfriend and mother of his son Pearce. Most of my friends think this is weird but it works for us. We talk all the time, go shopping together and most recently went on a car ride to Coos Bay to see Pearce's christmas play and Mikaila and I even spent the night at her parents house. Honestly I wouldnt have it any other way.

7. This last one is the hardest because it's hard to think of random facts about yourself, but lastly I am a picker. Yes you read that right a picker from zits to boogers. I constantly am picking at my face or at Mikael's or even Mikaila's. Although I pick Mikaila's boogers I definitly dont pick Mikael's I leave that to him. I know GROSS!! I can't believe I just admited that.

I've decided this is more of a confession than random facts but facts just the same...

I am going to tag...Misa. Your blog is new and it will be fun to read some random facts about you. Have fun!!

At Last!!

This blog is a little late but I thought I should let everyone know Mikaila and me are finally home!!! We flew in on Sunday at 10:20 am from San Jose, CA. Mikael wont be home until next Sunday (more about that on my next entry). I have to admit the smile on my face grew bigger and bigger as we neared my neighborhood and then to see my house!! But my smile faded a little when I entered to find my house was only 44 degrees...bbrrrrr!! I quickly cranked the heat on. I walked upstairs to get a coat and there it was...MY BED! I ran to it, flew myself on it and smothered my face in the pillows. I think I would have cried if my neice Courtney hadnt been standing there thinking I had completely lost my mind! She asked me if I was going to crawl into the tub But little did she know I would be doing that later that night for sure!
Finally the day I have been waiting so long for is here ;)

This picture is from Saturday night before I left Mikael. We decided to get a hotel for the night that was close to the airport because I was leaving so early in the morning.
Daddy loves his Baskin Robbins Ice Cream and it looks like Mikaila does too!! Even Chloe wants a little taste...Yum Yum!!

I just had to add a little of Mikaels conversation with Mikaila and ice cream...

Mikael: "If you want ice cream you need to sit"

Mikaila: dancing on the bed, still standing

Mikael: "Mikaila sit"

Chloe: sits

Mikaila: still dancing on the bed

Mikael: "Mikaila you have to SIT!"

Chloe: sits

Mikaila: finally sits down and enjoys a bite before standing up again

At least someone in this family listens even if it is only the dog ;)

part monkey??

I have come to the conclusion that Mikaila is part monkey. This is the ladder in the trailer that Papa Dave uses to get into bed and Mikaila decided to follow him up it this evening. After she reached the top of course she wanted back down so she could do it all over again. She is a climbing fool!!

Look at her go...up and down!!

The Beach in December!!

Mikaila playing in the sand

What a beautiful Sunset!!

What a fun way to spend an evening in Ocean Side, California. This was by far one of the best days on the bike trip. We traveled through San Diego today and settled here in Ocean side for the evening. This has to be why people live in California. It is beautiful to say the least.
