*Why does Target only have this onesie in 3m? Because I neeeeeeed it in 6m.
NEED. IT. So if you find it; please send it my way!
Because it's true. I DO NOT want you to word vomit your UNSOLICITED opinion all over me. Or the guilt trips. Or the comments that are supposed to make me feel bad.
*What is going on with E...she took two horrible naps today that amounted to mayyyyybe 1.5hours and then didn't want to go to bed tonight. So I gave her a (second) bottle and tried to get her to go to sleep and it was a no go. So I put her in her crib and I walked out (with her staring at me crying like I am the worlds worst mom). But I am at my wits end!!!!!!!!
And now that she can do this
*What is with these moms that let their 14 year old daughters walk around with their butt cheeks HANGING OUT of their shorts?I don't mean just short shorts, I mean literal cheek hanging out. I passed this one mom at Kohls and wanted to ask the lady if she was her pimp.
*Why are all the stores seemingly out of summer stuff? Really, no water rafts...beach balls...water shoes-yes water shoes. I am aware they are not the most flattering thing you can wear to the beach but I am DEATHLY afraid of the zebra mussels that are in the water. DEATHLY. Ok, really I'm afraid of almost everything that is in the water....but zebra mussels are at the top of the list.
Look harmless? Uhhhhh no. That sucker will slice you.
*Why did J.K. Rowling have to go and finish the Harry Potter books? I saw the last movies last night and I'm not gonna lie...I was really sad when it was over. I must say HP=yummm
*This year has gone by so fast. I remember saying "This time next year (at Gull lake) I will have a 6 or 7 month old" I swear that just happened...how do I already have a 7 month old??? Either way I am SO glad to be getting away...where there will be plenty of other people for E to crawl all over...
*I really want to take a spin class at the gym, but I am terrified that it will kick my butt...
because it will...but...

Elle-my-belle my darling daughter,
This has been quite the month for milestones! You are growing and changing every day! I feel like this last month has flown by, I feel like we will be celebrating your 1 year birthday before we know it!
*You weigh 15lbs 9oz
*You eat about every 3 hours and eat 3 "meals" a day
*You are in a SIZE 2 disposable diaper!!!! Even though we only use those when we are on-the-go
*You are in some 3 month clothes, but you can wear some 3-6 month and you even wore a 6 month onesie. GASP!
*You are sleeping from around 7:00pm until around 6:00am and then you eat and most of the time go back to sleep until 7:00-7:30 (except the mornings when mommy reeeeeeallllly wants you to)
*You take more consistent naps now for around1.5-2.5 hours.
You are always on the go. I don't even think you know how to sit still! This month you started crawling on all fours, you learned to sit up, you started pulling yourself up on the furniture, you started climbing all over everything (especially me), AND you got your first tooth! Phew, I am tired just thinking about all you accomplished this month! You have started standing in your crib, I don't like that. It makes me nervous.
You had your first experience swimming fourth of July weekend, and you loved it!
Looks like someone was napping on their hand!
It is so amazing to watch you change and grow. We love you so much and are excited to see what God has in store for your future. I am so excited to see your personality take shape. You are such a sweet little girl and a wonderful blessing to our lives.

Every year during the summer my church holds our Sunday service under a pavilion at the fair. This year was hot as
balls heck. If I am going to be honest I really didn't pay attention to the service today. Whoops. We sat in the back with the babies because it was super loud up front and I knew there was no way any of them were going to sit still or stay quiet!
My nephew cracks me up
So I sweat
like a boy a lot a little so you could tell I was obviously on fire. Awesome.
I sweat when I'm hot, I sweat when I'm cold. I sweat when I'm happy. I sweat when I'm sad. I sweat when I'm glad, I sweat when I'm mad. So pretty much I sweat when I breathe. I have to coordinate my outfits around how much I am going to sweat. I hate it. I want to get botox injections in my armpits so that I don't sweat anymore. It's embarrassing. It's my curse. But that's enough about my misery.
We went into the Miracle of Birth barn and there were these little piggys
My sister's baby shower was so fun! We had pulled pork sandwiches and BBQ chicken (That's what the mama-to-be has been craving) for lunch and i was AHHHHH-MAZING. We also had potato salad, fresh fruit/dip, strawberry/cream cheese salad, and of course cake!
Prayers for the baby and the new parents
My gorgeous Sisters (in law)
Parents-to-be. My brother would be chowing down on some pulled pork while they're opening presents!

*I am so excited my sister and her kids are coming over TONIGHT to spend a couple days with me and Ellie...and she is going to help me make decorations for my other sisters baby shower because apparently I can't focus. Did I mention that BOTH my sisters are pregnant right now? One is due Aug 2 but I am sure will drop any second and the other is due October 1. We are going to have lots of little mini's running around and I am SO excited!
*It is taking forrrrrrrreverrrrrrr for this little tooth in E's little mouth to come all the way up. It's through the gums but I wanna see that puppy in all its glory!
*It is too hot for penguins to be walking around. Ok but really...what is with the 90+ degree weather every.stinking.day? And where is my pool?
*I am going to be taking Ellie to the Dr because she has had a low grade fever off and on for the past couple days and last time I took her in for a fever they said it was hand foot mouth....which I don't think it was because the fever she will DEFINITELY (I finally spelled it right) have for three days didn't even last a full day. So I am going to be UBER annoyed if I go in and pay $15 for them to say oh it's nothing. If we were going to see her usual Dr I def wouldn't care because he is
yummy eye candy and I may or may not have a mini crush on him such a great Dr.
*We are having our church service at the fair this Sunday, sadly I am most excited for the free admission. It's $10/car and then $$ for whatever you want to do while your there.
She is sad Mike won't give her any of his snack.
Life's so hard when you're a baby.
What are you thinking about this Wednesday?

I swear I am losing my mind. Yesterday was the weirdest day ever. These were the events of the day:I took a shower to get ready for the wedding. While I was in there Mike asked me to help get his hair straight. So I got out and hair sprayed/combed his hair then Mike left to meet the groom because they were riding to the wedding together. I got everything around for Ellie to stay at my moms house and packed her (and everything including the kitchen sink) in the car. I planned on getting ready at my moms house so that I had someone to keep Ellie entertained so I could focus on hair/makeup. I drove to my moms house and on a road I've traveled at least once a week for the past 1.5 years I have a mini panic attack because I don't know where I am and can't remember where I'm going. Once I remember where I am going I have to remind myself that just because I know where I'm going now doesn't mean I don't have to stop at stop lights/signs. As soon as I get to my moms house and put E's car seat in the floor-instant hysterics. Awesome. So as I'm trying to put the
I end up at the church forty-stinking-five minutes early and stand around like a goon all by myself. I would have waited in the car but it was 800 degrees out and gas is too expensive to keep it running. After the ceremony I drove to the hall for the reception (which was the same place we had ours...ahh memories) and sat at a table where I didn't know anyone and they were speaking German for the most part. Then they went outside and I was really all alone. When the bridal party got there an hour and a half after I did and after I had a few cocktails in me I started to feel a little less....lonely. Dinner was amazing, and the reception was so much fun. I felt a lot more comfortable once my hottie hubby could come down from the head table and spend time with me. We had a B.L.A.S.T.
These two are so in love it is adorable!
I have to say this was the best garter removal I have ever seen in my entire life. That man has some moves!
Yes ladies, he is all mine!
The boys in their shades.
I can't even put into words how amazing their cake was. I had a chocolate piece that melted.in.my.mouth. It was fudgy deliciousness
loved loved loved the color scheme and the decorations
Mike and Ryan have been friends since middle school and I met the two of them my freshman year in high school. We go way back!
Congratulations Ryan and Carranda. We had such a fun time celebrating with you!
