My Surgical Tech

Brady graduated last Monday from Surgical Tech school. He's already landed a job at a hospital here in Wichita. I'm super proud of him! He's already talking about Nursing School though! No matter, I'm just happy he has found a profession that he enjoys....you know seeing people being cut open, blood, guts, all that fun stuff. Gross.
Baskin Robbin's Ice Cream Cake, Brady's FAVORITE!Don't we look cute with our matching tie and sweater?

Did ya'll know that the wind blows really hard here in Kansas? Yeah, me neither. Ha. Ha. It is howling outside our apartment. They say a winter storm is not coming through our area, but I think they are lying. The wind told me so.

This is one of those random, just because posts. I think I'm really putting off cleaning our bathroom. Yeah, that's it. We have peeps coming today and I'm a clean freak when people visit. We are having Brady a small Graduation dinner tonight with family and friends. I'm so excited for him. His official graduation is Monday and so is his first day on a new job. Yay for my hubby.

That's all I've got. Off to clean the bathroom, shower, and wait for the parents to arrive.

One more thing, I just finished watching P.S. I Love You. I give it 5 out of 10. It was so-so, but boy did it make me cry.

Have a GREAT weekend. Stay warm!

My Santa...My Husband

Brady and I have this thing where we can NEVER wait until Christmas to give each other our presents. We end up buying something for each other that we are so excited about and open it right when we buy it. It's a bad habit. Hopefully when the kid gets big enough we will actually wait until Christmas to let him open presents.....but I might let him sneak one early.
So...my husband is the best, just so ya'll know. You see, I bought him a TV for a Graduation/Christmas/Birthday/Valentines present. I gave it to him back in October! Crazy stuff. Brady on the other hand waited until today when my present came in the mail to give me mine. At least he waited until December. Ok, back to him being awesome. The day we found out we were having a boy and had settled on a name...he ordered from my FAVORITE jewelry store. He did good.

I also want to add that not only is he a great gift giver and spoils me with my love of trinkets. He also has been a wonderful husband to my hormonal self. He has pampered me, comforted me, held me why I cry for no reason and rubs my belly while talking to his little boy. I don't know if he reads this blog or not, but if he does....I love you and thank you for all you do!

It's a........

It was amazing being able to look on that big flat screen and see my little boy. He was very active during our sonogram....waving his hands like he was telling us "hello, I'm in here." I keep saying this every time we have a pregnancy milestone but now it feels real. AND now it's time to start shopping! I will be 19 weeks this Wednesday. It is fast approaching, but at least we know now that little Case is waiting to see us on April 30th.

Pregnancy 101

Here is a little update on the pregnancy....
*We find out next Tuesday if it is a boy or girl! My guess is boy, but of course I have a 50/50 shot here.
*The reason I believe it is a boy....I've watched more Big 12 football then any other time in my life AND I enjoy it AND I know what is somewhat going on AND I look forward to looking at the BCS rankings on Sunday! Totally not me.
*I haven't gained or lost any weight. I'm where I was at when I found out I was pregnant. I have a feeling that is all about to change...bring on the cravings!
*First weird craving, bologna/onion/mayo sandwich. I didn't eat it but it sure sounded wonderful in my mind.
*I may not have gained any weight yet but my stomach and butt are expanding at a fast pace.
*I cry now more then ever.
*Brady is being the best husband and daddy to be. He really caters to me.
*The only book I've read is "What to Expect When You are Expecting." Any other suggestions?
*I can't wait until we can go shopping for all of the stuff! I can wait to pay the bill for all of the stuff.
*I'm worried about how my dogs will handle having a baby around. Advice?

Ok, I think that is enough for now. Just wanted to share my pregnancy ramblings.

From Phoenix

I have a friend in Phoenix. I met her through her blog. Her name is Kelli and I think she is just down right cool. I know, I know....I sound like a 3rd grader talking about their pen pal from summer camp. I guess you could call Kelli my blog pal.
Anyways...she tagged me and I'm running with it. Here are the rules:

* Link to the person who tagged you.* Post the rules on your blog.* Write 6 random things about yourself.* Tag anyone on your blog that you actually know personally and not the ones that you just stalk their blog. (I made that one up.) *Let each person know he/she has been tagged.* Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

1. I have a small, unrealistic obsession with Tiffany's jewelry. Since I knew what Tiffany's was I always said I would own a pair of diamond earrings from that beautiful, glittery store. So, I'm not there yet, but I do have a "Return to Tiffany's" bracelet. AND I wear it EVERYDAY.

2. I was the Wyandotte Bear Mascot. I wore a big ol' bear head and fuzzy/hairy body suit. I loved it because people couldn't see me, but I could act as crazy as a....high school girl in a bear suit.

3. I would LOVE to live in the country. LOVE. I often dream about it and imagine what my little homestead would look like. Hopefully someday....

4. I use this (....) way too much.

5. I'm not scared of childbirth, bring it on. I'm scared of the other stuff....finding childcare, finding a pediatrician, figuring out insurance, etc. That stuff freaks me out and I feel so ill prepared.

6. If people would let me, I would stare into space for hours thinking, pondering and dreaming. I tend to do it a lot, but Brady always asks me if I'm ok and I pop out of it. Weird? Nah.

Tag you're it....
*Jessica, even though I think she recently did one of these.

Something I Miss

I don't do it very often anymore, but when I do take pictures it just feels right. It makes me feel creative, it makes me feel good, it makes me feel proud when I see the outcome. No, I'm not a professional, but I do my best. I usually just help friends out with weddings, senior portraits or family pictures, but regardless....it feels like someday this is what I should be doing. Someday.

I Voted!

I am ashamed and proud to say that I voted in my first presidential election today. I've always been registered but have always been too lazy or I had the "I don't care" attitude to vote. Excuses, excuses! But today I dragged myself out of bed at 5:30am, after having weird dreams about my polling location (it included crazy people passing out religious materials, military propaganda on the voting machines and my two doxies running around crazy like)....anyways. I thought by going at 6 this morning that I would be the first in line. Ha. It was packed. I made my choice, smiled, took my "I Voted" sticker from the elderly lady and walked out the door at 6:45.

It took me 10 years to finally practice my right to vote. Regardless of my past laziness, I voted TODAY.

My Favorite Month

October is by far my favorite month. I love it because I said my vows in this month, the air is becoming crisp, the colors are turning outside and inside, warm and hearty meals take place, goblins run around and I can get anything that is pumpkin flavored. I love this tenth month. Here are a few snapshots of my month so far....

One Year of Marriage...One Day Late

One Year Ago...yesterday.
For our 1 year anniversary this weekend Brady and I went back to the same town, the same church and the same reception sight where we celebrated our wedding. We drove around Neosho talking about that day a year ago and talking some about the road ahead of us. To my surprise Brady had booked a room at the Booneslick Lodge (funny name!) for us. This was the same room we stayed in our first night as husband and wife. I walked through the door to a dozen red roses on the table. It was perfect. He gave me the best present...more fond memories. I can't wait for all of our years to come.

In front of the church where we were married.

My first ever dozen roses....a perfect occasion for them.

Tag You're It!

I'm not so sure how this works, but I'll give it a try. Liz tagged me, so now I have to tell you "Six Totally Random Things About Myself." Here you go.....
  1. I would love to move to somewhere in the Northwest. A quaint little town outside of Portland, Oregon would be nice. I will never do this because I can't live that far away from my family.
  2. When I was little, I use to make up commercials for grocery items in our kitchen. Everything from Comet to Lipton Tea. I really thought I could be a child star discovered in Wyandotte.
  3. I'm slowing become obsessed with little chicks. Like the ones at Easter time. I think it has something to do with the Dixie Chicks and well, they are just so darn cute.
  4. I could eat anything flavored pumpkin this time of year. I'm actually craving a pumpkin spice frappuccino right now.
  5. My favorite color of fingernail polish is a deep, deep purple that looks black. I could wear it all year round.
  6. My first alcoholic drink ever was in New Orleans on Bourbon Street. It was a nice fruity Hurricane.

Enough randomness. I'm not tagging anyone because I'm no fun and I never liked playing tag when I was little because I was always too slow to run. I'm off to watch Project Runway! Carry on....

Funny Things an 8 Year Old Says

My nephew, Guy, seems much older then his ripe age of 8. If he is in the mood, he is about the only 8 year old that I can carry on a conversation with....and it makes sense. He's sweet, inquisitive and hears EVERYTHING people say. EVERYTHING!
My nephew has really never been around a pregnancy before me. We have had a few cousins, but never someone so close to him. Well, Guy is very interested in me and my uterus or what is in my uterus. Here are just a few comments my little Guy-Man has said:

*Guy, "When will you be buffering?" Me, "What?" Guy, "You know buffering, where your belly sticks out?" Me, "Oh, you mean, showing?" Guy, "Yeah, that's what I mean."

*Guy, "I think I'm going to kidnap your baby because you and Brady won't know how to take care of it like I would."

*(after my first OB appointment) Guy, "Is the doctor still letting you drive a car?"

*Guy, "Are you having twins because if one is a boy and one is a girl, I will take the boy and raise it."

*Guy, "You need to come bring the baby home (his home) the day after you have it so I can see it." Me, "Guy, I'm not going to be able to drive that soon. You will probably come to Wichita instead." Guy, "Oh."

*Guy, "Do you have a big belly yet?" Me, "Yes, but it's not because I'm pregnant. No, I'm not showing....yet."

*Guy, "If they make you stay in bed then I will quit school for awhile and come take care of you."

My nephew is very special....to me. He is going to be a GREAT cousin, even though we will have to watch him like a hawk to make sure he doesn't kidnap my baby.

The Heartbeat of a Peanut

Today I heard it. I heard by little ones heartbeat for the first time. Not only did I hear it, but I saw it beating. It was amazing.
Yes, this means that I'm pregnant. I've known since August 18th, but was waiting until I officially went to the doctor to announce it on here. I knew after today I wouldn't be able to contain my little secret anymore. Some people know....I probably told more people then I think. Oh well, such happy news needs to be shared.
Today made it real though.Yes, I took four pregnancy tests. Yes, I've been sick with nausea and throwing up. Yes, I feel like I just ran a marathon from one coast to the next. Yes, I could fall asleep at my desk and wake up and still take another nap. AND yes, my breast feel like someone used them as a punching bag. But today, made it real.
Brady and I are over the moon about this baby. We couldn't be more excited.
Welcome to the blog world little one....Brady and I call it Peanut....for now.

I Kneaded It

A few weeks ago I found an easy recipe for homemade bread. It just sounded good and who can't resist the smell of homemade bread baking. It was quite easy to make. The only extra ingredient I had to buy was some yeast.
That is the bread under the tea towel, I was trying to keep it warm.

I didn't take pictures along the way, but I did get a shot of the end result. And may I add that it was YUMMY!
I'm for sure no Martha Stewart, but heck, a girl can try.

Random writing....
  • It has felt like fall here for the past week. It is awesome. I love this type of weather even with the rain. Bring it on Hurricane Ike (it is Ike now right?).
  • Can I have Victoria Stillwell from "It's Me or the Dog" come and help me train my doxies? I bought her book but it has yet to get here. I have a feeling my stubborn dachshunds are not going to make it easy on me.
  • I love the deal my husband and I have. I cook, he cleans. Marital Bliss!
  • Maple donuts are yummy, but my tummy thinks otherwise.
  • This is a heart wrenching story. I've been reading her blog and I can't imagine what the family is going through. I don't know this woman or anyone in her big family, but by reading her blog I can tell she is so loving, creative and a wonderful mom. My prayers go out to Stephanie and Christian Nielson and their family.
  • I'm on this vampire kick....I take after my Mom. I've been reading the Twilight Series and the new HBO series just started, TrueBlood. I vill suck your blood. hee. hee.

Ok, enough randomness. Everyone enjoy their Friday, because I know I will!

Rough Saturday

This is what I did today.....it was a tiring day.
*Woke up at 6:30am to take the doggies out, they don't know what weekends are, so I give them a break.
*Lay on couch until Brady wakes up, listen to the rain, eat some yummy Life cereal (note to self: need more Life cereal), kiss husband goodbye and watch a silly wedding dress show.
*Take shower around 9:30.
*Co-worker picks me up, we go to JC Penney.
*Come home hop in car.
*Call friend and invite myself over to her house for lunch....I'm bringing her Pei Wei so it's OK!
*Come home, let doggies out, crash on couch.
**This is where the day gets rough.
*Watch "The Waitress" with Keri Russell. Good movie, makes you hate Earl and want to eat pie.
*Browse my new IKEA catalog.
*Browse the Glamour my Pei Wei friend let me borrow.
*Start reading Oprah.
*Cuddle on the couch with doggies.
*Eat leftovers from Pei Wei.
*Watch "Things We Lost in the Fire" with Halle Berry, David Duchovny and Benicio Del Toro. I cried like a baby. This movie is very emotional and pulls at your heartstrings.
*Now I am writing on my blog and listening to 70's music on the TV.

OK, so it wasn't so rough. It's been nice just to veg out in front of the TV, read magazines and do whatever the heck I want to. I hope everyone out there had just as a relaxing Saturday as I did.

4 Years

Brady and I met four years ago today at a Hank Williams Jr. Concert. It was a warm August night at the Zoo Amphitheatre in OKC. My friend and her husband had gotten into a fight, so I walked around the amphitheatre grounds with my other friend. We kept passing these two guys. Being a little tipsy we kept giggling every time we saw them. Finally after one too many frozen beverages, I had to use the potty. Needless to say, we passed the two guys again and I never made it to the porcelain throne. We sat on a rock ledge and talked until the end of the concert. I even remember what he was wearing, a COLLEGE T-shirt and khaki shorts. We exchanged numbers and the rest is history.
It is pretty special that someday I will be able to tell our kids that Hank brought us together.

Birthday Weekend Part 2

Ok, so this post should have been Part 1, but oh well. Another reason that this was the perfect weekend to go to OKC was that one of Brady's bestest friends got hitched. The wedding was Friday night in Midwest City. After the beautiful wedding we all (wedding party and friends) went to Bricktown. We ended the night at my favorite bar, Wormy Dog. It was a great night had by all! Bride and Groom Chuck and Brady(what a serious face he has)Who's that girl with my man? Two of my favorite boys, oh how they drive me crazy!

My purdy pedicure....this is a before picture of my left big toe before I tore it half way off last night. Oh my goodness, it hurts like a.......

Birthday Weekend Part 1

This is a little late coming, but I am just now getting around to downloading the pictures. For my birthday this year, Brady got us a hotel room at the Colcord in OKC. I've been wanting to stay there because this was where I began my "adult" life. I worked there when it was an office building, Oklahoma Today was located on the first floor. I moved on from that job after 2 years (????) but I learned so much, met so many people and felt grown up for the first time ever. So, when they turned it into a hotel, I knew I would one day have to stay there.
Brady made that possible this last weekend. I spent the day with my best friend, Can. We then had dinner together with Can and her husband at the Deep Fork Grill. It was good but oh my was it pricey. We ended the night at Edna's off of Classen. That place had some pretty tasty beverages. I also enjoyed watching Edna dance on the bar. Brady and I headed back to our posh digs (for us anyway) and counted sheep until the next morning. Sunday we ate at Hideaway! Best Pizza EVER! While eating we talked about how much we missed Oklahoma. Brady even said, "Our hearts are here, aren't they?" Even though we may live in Kansas for a few more years, we will move back someday.
So that was my birthday present from my hubby....a weekend in one of my favorite places. Colcord HotelOklahoma TodayFancy Bathroom Love this bed & the guy below playing pool.

Can and CharlyGirl @ Edna's

Only in my home state....

would you light birthday candles like this....

30 is waiting to pounce, right around the corner

Here is a birthday cupcake for my few blog readers. I did not make these, but if I did, I would share with you all. Yummy.

Yeah, I turned 28 today. 28! Thirty is so close. I usually don't freak out unless it is a major milestone. I got really depressed at 25 and I'm sure 30 will be no different. We will see.

So here is to a new year for me. A year full of wonderful surprises...I love surprises. New beginnings for my little family. And as usual, lots of bacon and things that glitter.

Monday, July 28, 2008


Remember writing that in grade school on notes you would pass? I always passed mine to a select few girls. We had our group, pretty much the same group up until high school graduation. I still know where all those girls are these days. I see them at weddings, baby showers and some day I will see them at funerals. That is the extent of us keeping in touch. I also hear about them through my mom. She always ask if I've talked to so and so. Did I hear about what happened to them or what they named their baby....
You see my Mom has kept her same friends since grade school. Of course she has gained friends along the way, but my Mom has pretty much had the same gang of friends since childhood. Most of them live in the same area, but at one point I think they all moved away and then came back. Even so, they kept in touch. Here lately I've seen my Mom and her gang grow even closer. They've been through marriages, divorces, children, jobs and now they are all experiencing illness and even death. Two of my Mom's gang have passed away in the last year. I just found out today that one of the "girls" from the gang has stage four lung cancer and they don't think there is much they can do. This is one of my Mom's BFF's.
It makes me sad. I guess one, it makes me realize my Mom is getting older. She isn't OLD by any means, but she isn't in her 30's either. Also, this is a friend of hers that I always thought was the "cool" one. She lived in Tulsa, the big city. She had a career. She bought fancy groceries. She wore neat clothes. She took me to my first OSU football game, on the front row behind the bench. She was the first person to show me the Internet and how much you could do on it. We ordered take-out when I was in Tulsa at her HUGE house. (As a child it was huge to me.) When I met her she didn't have any kids, so she made me feel extra special. She now has a 16 yr. old daughter. I saw pictures from her prom the other day, she's grown up so fast.
Talking to my Mom tonight we just cried together. I felt so bad for her and her gang of friends. They have been through so much and still they are there for each other. I may not have my grade school friends on speed dial, but I do have a very close group of college friends. I know that we will be like my Mom's gang. No matter what we will be there for each other. They are my girls. I, like my Mom, will go through everything with them, even if it is from a distance. I love you all (you know who you are)....BFF.

Proud of Being a Pen Snob

I'm a fan of Sharpie's. I love the way they write, especially the ones that are ultra-fine tipped. I do not love how they smell and bleed through paper. If it wasn't for this, I would write with them everyday. Well, the Sharpie company heard our (the pen snobs of the world) cries and created a Sharpie Pen!
I searched high and low for some here in Wichita. Ok, not high and low, just at Target and Office Max. The salesperson at Office Max gave me a weird look when I said I had seen the advertisements for the pen but couldn't find it anywhere (a little of a stretch). I also said that I loved Sharpie's and I was really looking forward to using a Sharpie Pen and I hoped they had them. I'm a little weird, this I know. She directed me to the Sharpie stand and a stupid, silly smile came over my face. It was like being a kid in a candy store.
My review of the new Sharpie Pen:
*It's not a fine tipped Sharpie Marker. Don't get me wrong, it is close, but it doesn't give you the dark coloring of a regular one.
*It doesn't smell....good thing.
*And so far, it doesn't bleed through paper.
*I enjoyed the way it flowed, especially with the way I print.
*I do believe I would buy more of this product, but probably only in black and blue. The red and green didn't really do anything for me. :)

Hello, my name is Charly and I'm a pen snob.

Open Range

Just now posting about the 4th of July weekend....I guess I'm still recuperating from not sleeping in my own bed or actually not sleeping at all. Brady's family and my family went to stay in a "Lodge"(old farm house) in Alva, OK. We went fishing, 4-wheelin', and just sat around relaxing. I also got covered in mud, dirt and mystery bites. All in all it was a great time. Being able to be outside, not worrying about work and spending time with my loved ones was the best. Thank goodness our families get along....it's a good thing.
Wide Open Spaces, you could see for miles.

The great fishermen of the weekend. My niece and nephew had a blast. My Dad seemed to have fun just watching the kids fish and helping them out every once in awhile.
My Husband. He caught the biggest fish of the weekend. I was a close second, but of course I didn't get a picture to prove it. Seriously though, I caught a fish with a piece of bacon. Even fish crave bacon every once in awhile.

Hair of Many Colors

Changing my hair color or hair style makes me feel better. I've never been one to be upset over a bad haircut....it always grows back. I went today and told her I wanted something fun and colorful. I think she got it right. It looks even better in the sun, it is RED! I'm lovin' it.

I guess I'll update on how bootcamp is going. Well, I guess you can tell I actually didn't die after my first post about it. I have yet to miss a session. I'm quite proud of myself. Of course I've whined throughout it, but it's getting easier and easier as the weeks pass by. The running (fast walking)still hasn't gotten easier, but I think eventually it will. The shin splints are killing me. Wendy, my friend that is doing this adventure with me, and I are going to sign up for the next six week session once this one is over next week. As far as the results go, I haven't lost A LOT of weight. I've toned up and gained muscle. I'm going to try hard to follow the diet they have lined out for participants on this next go around. Time will tell. Regardless of losing the pounds, I feel better, I feel healthier.

So here is to my new doo and my healthier body. Everyone have a fun and safe 4th of July!!!

Magical Place

This was my magical place growing up. My creek. My water hole. My trees. A lot of make believe and pretending took place here. I love this spot. It is not far from the porch of where I grew up. Some days Mom would watch me play, other times I just stayed down there for hours by myself. It reminded me of a magical forest with fairies and little nymphs. Have you ever seen Legend of the Unicorn? That's what it reminded me of.

So, I went home this last weekend and I stood there looking at my favorite spot. It makes me miss being a child. Being able to dream about unicorns and fairies. Pretending I'm stranded on a deserted island. Playing like it was my outside kitchen. I guess just missing the innocence of childhood. Because as we all know, now we are adults, doing adult things. It can suck some days. But then, I go home. I go home and see that it is still there. No one goes down there anymore except the occasional horse to take a drink or dog to take a summer bath. When I go home though, I go there. And I remember that just because I'm adult doesn't mean I can't still dream about life being a little magical.

Father's Day and Funnels

First of all....Happy Father's Day to my Daddy. I can call him Daddy because I'm his baby girl, enough said.
Secondly, not too long ago I posted about a deadly twister that hit NE Oklahoma on Mother's DAY. And then today on Father's DAY a tornado is reported two miles south of Wyandotte. Pretty much the location of my family. My family thank goodness soon after Mother's Day purchased a storm cellar and took cover today. There were a few trees down, but no damage other then that. AND no injuries.
Seriously, can Mother Nature leave my family alone on holidays? I was going to post a blog along the lines of a friend's recent entry, but he went ahead and wrote it for me. I totally agree with what he said.
Enough is enough Mother Nature, we understand you are having a bad year, but go to therapy to release your anger and stop releasing it on us. Thanks.

Feeling the burn

Oh....dear....god....I hurt. What I was going to tell ya'll (my four total readers) is that I started Boot Camp today. And again, Oh....Dear....god....I hurt. I haven't had this much exercise since two-a-day softball practices in high school. It is only for an hour, two days a week for six weeks. A friend of mine from work talked me into it....I was shooting her "you are going to die" looks all throughout the workout. She probably didn't see me because we were going every which way trying to learn the workout exercises. This Boot Camp is ran by military men. Yeah, that is right, they show up in military garb, all built and fit. They teach it as if you were going through boot camp, but without the yelling. Which is good because I would just break down and cry.
After sweating my ass off and moving parts of my body that usually never get moved, I crashed on the picnic table. I felt like I was going to throw up and pass out all at the same time. This just goes to show how out of shape I am. It is quite pathetic. I couldn't even do a girl push-up. When I got to the apartment I struggled up the stairs and literally crashed on the floor. I then cried. I think I cried because I hurt, I felt embarrassed and I felt accomplished. I did it. We (Wendy and I) did it! We will continue to do it! I can do anything in 6 weeks!
We go back on Thursday for cardio. I think that translates into running. Can you feel the burn?

This is my life....

The past month in reviewOkie turned 2, this is before she peed on the couch.
Dixie in her Sunday best.
A glimpse of a day in the country.
Baby Bella, my newest friend. Here are some of my old friends that I miss dearly. Miss you Daisy Family!
My favorite red head turned 3.
The month was full of seeing lots of friends and family. That is the way it should be. I start a new adventure on Monday. All I have to say for now is, God help my body. I'll tell you more next week.
