So wednesday was mine and Josh's 4 year anniversary. It's crazy how time flies by. It feels like just yesterday when I met Josh at Landon Webster's house with my best friend Cassie (Hansen) Webster. Now, 4 years later we have 2 kids and are living in Germany serving in the US Army. I love Josh so much and I don't know what I would do without him. Today we went and bought some new couches, I guess you could say it's our present to eachother... Truth be told we both actually forgot about or anniversary. I guess that's what a busy life and 2 kids will do to you.
Wow I love how people can just take advantage of you and not even care. So I did a weave and color inbetween on my neighbor about a month ago and a haircut and she said she would go get the money at the atm and bring it over... She never did. Then yesterday she asked if I was busy and wanted to know if I could take her hair a little darker. I told her that I would charge her and she said that she would pay me for last time and this time. So yet again I did a weave with color inbetween, without gloves! My hands look nasty. And then she said she would go home and wash it out and then bring the money over becaus she "left it at home" Well I waited until after 10 pm and sent her 2 text messages seeing if everything was ok. She totally ignored me but had time to daddle on facebook. Some people have a nerve!!! I can't believe how annoyed I am. I didn't pay thousands of dollars to gain my skill as a hairdresser and then have people use me. It took a lot of time and effort to be able to do hair that looks good and I don't just hand that out. She got a deal anyways she would have paid way more at the salon on base. Let's hope she can explain when I talk to her today....
The time is coming for fall and the weather is starting to get colder. You know what that means... Time to buy fall clothes for the kids. It was no big deal to drop money down for one kid to get a fall wardrobe but 2 kids is a differen't story. I can't imagine buying 3 or 4 kids new clothes. For anyone who is interested, kohls.com is having a big sale lots of cute baby and toddler clothes for way cheap!
The time has come for Bentley's 6 month well baby check up and imunizations. He turned 6 months old August 12th. I can't believe my baby is already 6 months old. Crazy! His appointment was at 8 this morning which means we have to be there at 7:45 for his scanning. He weighs 15 pounds and is 26 inches long. He is so tiny lol. He was so sad when he got his shots. Once the first needle was in the binkie fell out and he started screaming... Then he had to endure 2 more shots. So sad. After some good cuddling into my neck and shoulder and a few sniffles later he was ok. We walked home from the clinic and he fell asleep on the walk. It takes so much out of him to get shots. Anyways when we got home he didn't want to eat he just wanted to sleep. After a few hours I wen in to check on him and he was so cute all snuggled in his blanket with his hand up on his head. What a doll!!!
Bentley had his first encounter with eating some rice cereal. He was a little unsure of it at first and kept pushing it out with his tongue. But once I left the spoon in his mouth for a bit he would suck on it and swallow the cereal. We made quite a mess. Then we played peek a boo with his messy cereal onesie. What a cute little boy he is!
You guessed it, Rykkar is obsessed with Mickey Mouse Club House. He loves watching it in the mornings. Grandma Huntsman has been sending him surprises in the mail and now he has 4 of the 6 characters. And yes, they do have to snuggle with him in the mornings to watch cartoons.
Yay, I am officially back to my prepregnancy weight! Now it's time to lose 15 - 20 more pounds so I can get back to my weight before I started having babies... It actually wasn't hard, which is motivating to me to think about the rest of the weight I need to lose. I am starting the master cleanse lemonade fast this weekend. It's not a starvation diet, it's actually a very healthy cleanse that detoxifies your body of all the waste and toxins sitting in your body. I am hoping that this will help me with starting a new lifestyle and only putting good things into my body. They say that these cleanses are what's missing from western medicine. They can help in curing your body of infections and disease as well. So here it is. It's The juice of half a lemon, 2 Tbsp of Grade B pure maple syrup, 1/10 tsp of red cayenne pepper, and 10 oz of purified water. You drink this at least 6 times a day up to 12 times a day. No food, this has everything you need in it. You can drink purified water though. You do this for a minimum of 6 days and a max of 40 days although not that long if it's your first time. I am doing it for 14 days. Coming off the cleanse is very important. You need to drink several 8 oz glasses of orange juice to prepare your digestive track for food. 1-2 days before beginning food (1st and 2nd day after fast). East raw fruit during the day and a vegetable salad in the evening. Start a vegatable soup 3-4 days after the fast No bread or crackers! Around the 4th day you can return to eating normally. * The first 3 days are the hardest. After this your body is adjusted. * You can lessen the amount of Maple Syrup for those seeking weight loss as well. The average person will usually lose around 20 pounds anyways. Depending on your body and if you are overweight to begin with.
A little about us... Josh is active duty in the U.S Army and we have been stationed in Vilseck, Germany. We will be here for 3 years and we are so excited to travel around Europe! Rykkar is just over 2 and growing up way too fast. Amanda is very pregnant due with Bentley Coupe the end of February 2009. Rykkar is very excited to be a "Big Brother" and he loves to give Bentley loves and kisses through mommys belly. He also loves to shine a flash light through mommys belly to make Bentley move.
