Many of you know about my dog eating my bluetooth that I got for my birthday, but only a few of you know the real story. Since I got another one for Christmas I decided to tell Ryan the truth about what happened to my bluetooth(s).

For my birthday Ryan got me a bluetooth and like you all know my stupid dog that I love so much ate it the next day. Well, what you don't know is that I bought another one. I knew Ryan would be PISSED so I hurried and ordered one with my own money. I was so pissed because I only work one day a week and that whole check went straight to my bluetooth. I didn't want Ryan to have any suspicions that Coco ate it and that I had to buy another one so I ordered the same one. Trying to figure out the exact bluetooth that was chewed to shreds was really hard to find but I found it. For a few days Ryan kept asking me why I wasn't using it and I would just make up some excuse that it was in my room or in the car in all reality it was in COCO's frickin stomach. GRRRRRRR.

The day finally came where my package arrived. So I threw away all of the left over things from my first bluetooth so there weren't any doubles of anything. I was so excited to have another bluetooth until...... Yes, you guessed it that STUPID DOG ate it two days later. I was balling. I didn't know what to do. At this point I had to tell Ryan because I didn't want to pay for another one. The first one Ryan bought was $100 but when I went to buy it I got it off amazon for $70. I wasn't about to throw another paycheck of mine away just so Coco could potentially eat it again.

And just so you all know, no I did not leave it on the floor or couch where Coco had easy access to it. I had it on the table both times. Now knowing that my fat overweight pug was able to jump onto our bar stool height chairs and eat my bluetooth I always make sure the chairs are pushed in. The reason why I think she like it so much was because when it was on it would blink red and blue lights. Coco has a thing for lights and reflections.

My new bluetooth (that I still have (knock on wood)), is forever and always staying in my car at all time. I actually haven't even tried it out yet but I know it was a good one so I am excited to use it. It is a jawbone brand. Ryan got it on the "Cyber Monday Sale" for $35, it was originally $110. My saving skills are rubbing off on him. :)

If your wondering if Ryan was mad when I told him the truth he wasn't. Maybe because it was Christmas and he didn't want to spoil the mood :)

Also he wasn't that mad that I scratched up the car after I ran into a wall.....but I'll save that for another post! He must LOVE me! : )

Visiting Friends and Family

I was really excited to go up to Utah to see all of my extended family. The last time I saw them was at my baby shower so none of them had met Paisley until now. We also got to see one of my best friends Jeneil, I hate that she lives so far away :(.
I love how Paisley will go to anyone and not cry.

Temple Lights

I was excited to hear that we were going to see the SLC temple lights this year because I had never seen them before. not impressed.... Ryan had shown me pictures of the year he went with his family the year we got engaged and they had every tree and bush lit up. This year they only had a few big trees lit up and patches here and there of decorations. Well, Paisley loved it and I guess that is all that matters these days.
Before we went to look at the lights we ate at the YUMMIEST place on Earth. It is called Tucanos (Like Brazillian Steakhouse where they come and give you endless meats). I was eating everything that came to our table, minus the chicken heart, Ryan ate that. YES, can you believe Ryan ate that.... GROSS!
I love Paisley's winter outfit, I got it on sale for $11.00 at Target :) I think it was originally $30 or something like that. The best part about it was when I would stop to take a picture and I would then have to catch up to Ryan and his family all I had to do was look for HOT PINK :).

Christmas Eve/Christmas

Oh Boy.... Where to start. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my life. For Christmas this year Ryan and I got everyone on both sides of our families the same gift which happened to be life strength bands.
I am sure you have all seen these before in the malls. Well, there has been a lot said about these and that they don't really work. Here is the real story. The balance test that they do to sell them is fake it is just their way to sell you their product but everything else is true ( Well at least I believe it is). So I was doing some ear candles on Ryan (that's another blog post that is a must for everyone to read) and Ryan's dad or mom (can't remember who started the conversation) started to talk about them and he/she was saying how they don't even work (keep in mind that they have no idea that they are going to be getting that for their Christmas gift). Ryan and I were laughing so hard and we just kept letting them talk. Later that night Ryan asked me if we should have them open their gifts and I couldn't resist. So, we gave them their gifts and Carrie (Ryan's mom) started laughing instantly, It took Rod (Ryan's dad) a while because he had to put his glasses on to see what it was. OH MY GOODNESS I AM PRETTY SURE I PEED MYSELF THAT NIGHT.
If your not laughing I guess you just had to of been there. :)

I truly so believe that these do work; I notice a difference when Ryan wears his and my dad even noticed a difference in his knee pain.

As for the presents, Ryan was smart and had all of my gifts shipped to his parents house so I couldn't find them. I also told him he better delete all of his emails and then delete them again from the trash because thats how I found out last year :).
Ryan got a gun for Christmas. and I got some boots, a bluetooth, some photography stuff and more cloth diapers!!!! I am pretty sure I am the only person that gets excited for diapers.

Paisley's sixth month pictures were so much fun. She had 3 different outfits and they were all so cute!
I am so excited to see all of her pictures, here is one of them in the mean time.

Are You Ready For Some FOOTBALL

Paisley is Ryan's football buddy. I love sports but these days I really don't care to watch them I would much rather be blogging, sleeping or making something for Paisley to wear.

She loves watching football
I wish I had football leggins for her. I made her a football bow but when I finished it I realized that it was the wrong blue so I need to fix it.

This is how many pictures we take every Sunday in order to get one good picture.
And now that I see this picture I don't like it because Ryan isn't smiling.

Here Comes Santa Clause, Here Comes Santa Clause

If you want to avoid Santa lines go at 3 o'clock, because that is when all the kids are getting out of school. :) We took Paisley last week to go get a picture with Santa at the fashion show mall. She did so good I am really curious to see how she does next year. Santa said prepare for her to cry but I am hoping that she will be fine with it because my dad kinda looks like Santa all he needs to so if dye his beard white. :)

Ugly Sweater Party

This was my first ugly sweater party, it was so much fun! My friend Ellie was hosting it and it you know any of the Brim's you know they are a crazy bunch, and I am saying that in a good way. We played a bunch of games and had a lot of YUMMY food. I decided to make Paisley an ugly sweater outfit at the last minute and I am pretty happy how it turned out.

Here is her outfit
Me, Megan and Paisley
Monica Brynlee, Me and P.

I got a Wonder Women Snuggie :) for my white elephant gift. I love it!

I cannot believe Ryan is really smiling, it's probably because I was walking funny right after I set the camera up.

That is the Christmas outfit I made for Paisley. I meant to get a close up of it but she exploded in it so I'll have to do it tomorrow when we go see Santa!

You know the saying "Beauty Is Pain" Well I must have looked BEAUTIFUL today after wearing these suckers. I don't know why I continue to wear shoes I can't walk in.

Paisley's Doctor Thinks She Is A Boy

Today we had Paisley's 6th month well check. I don't know what her doctor was smokin because he kept calling her a boy. I kept replying well.... SHE is bla bla bla bla. and then he would call her a boy again. Well, when he started to examine her he was looking at her legs and her who-ha and while he was doing that she farted in his face. I couldn't stop laughing. I was thinking in my head... that's what you get for calling her a boy. Should I be worried that her doctor has no idea who she even is... I mean seriously, look in her folder before you walk into the room. I use to work in a physical therapy office and we new everything about out patients. We would even see them at the gym and recognize them. She should have pooped on him because then I am sure he will never forget who she is.

She is in the 40th percentile in her weight, 60th for her height and 80th in her head. That's one big noggin.

Hopefully we can get through this winter without getting sick. Knock on wood, she hasn't been sick once :)

Rub A Dub Dub The Bumbo Is In The Tub

Paisley was in heaven sitting in her bumbo in the tub. If you do this be sure to watch your kids at all times and don't fill up the bath too much. Paisley doesn't weigh enough so when the water was getting higher the bumbo was starting to float. I must say this way was so much easier to wash her and it is helping her to sit up better too. On Ryan's days off he always gives her a bath, so while he was bathing her I made sure to snap a few pictures.
After the bath Ryan put her in her Pajamas.

I love this smile.

Ethel M Chocolates

Tonight we went to Ethel M Factory. Every year for Christmas they cover the cactus garden in Christmas lights. Paisley was in love with all the lights. I cant wait to go back next year.

December 02, 2011


I cannot believe how fast this past six months have gone by. I don't even want to think about the next six. P. just needs to stay little forever.

She is now...
*Sitting better; around 30 seconds to 2 minutes. She would probably be sitting better if I put her in her bumbo more but she hates that thing. (Does that even help them sit better?)
*Rolls everywhere
*Does this head scoot (pushes with her feet and scoots on her head. My mom said I use to do the same thing)
*Eating solids. So far we have only tried giving her green beans and she does NOT like them (this is where she is like her daddy. She may have my looks but she has her daddy's stomach).
* Still LOVES her jumper
* Loves playing Peek-A-Boo
* Would rather play with the tags on the toy rather than the toy itself.
* Love the song "You Lie" by The Band Perry (Paisley could be screaming and if I play this song for her she will stop crying immediately and start to smile and laugh. It is so funny. If you don't believe me ask Ryan, my mom and Megan; they have seen her do it multiple times. I have it on video but I always have trouble uploading videos on here :(

He Said She Said

Ryan: (sending me a picture)
Me: Are you crazy... Don't give P. a popsicle. No wonder why she wouldn't eat her green beans tonight.

Ryan: I didn't, she took it from me. She is so grabby.

Me: Ya, so grabby you had time to snap a picture.

Do We Look Alike?

So the joke with a couple of my friends is that I got myself pregnant because they say Paisley looks just like me. What do you think?

Naughty Dogs

I have the smartest dumbest dogs alive. Many of you know that Coco recently ate my blue tooth that Ryan bough me for my birthday. When I found her with it she was in her cage. This is what she does when she has something she shouldn't. Now on every time Coco isn't in my sight I know she is most likely doing something she shouldn't be doing. Last night I went to look for her in her cage and sure enough she was chewing on an attachment to Paisleys booger-sucker-upper. She quickly ran out of her cage and into Khloe's cage. And in there I found this.
I was looking all over for this yesterday. Khloe took the container of dog food in her cage to try and eat more food. I recently put my dogs on a diet because they are getting way too fat, specifically Coco (the vet said she gained 4 pounds). So now Coco's bad habits are running off of Khloe because I have never seen her do this. Those crazy dogs.

Determined To Get A Good Picture

Trying to get these pictures was kinda like pulling teeth. Ryan was trying to get P. to smile but by the time he looked at the camera she wasn't smiling anymore. So I told him to just look at the camera and smile and I would do the rest. Well, I guess he wasn't listening because he was watching the television. I'm pretty sure I took about 10 pictures till I finally got one I liked.

Gobble Gobble

Ryan was lucky enough to get Thanksgiving off this year, so we ended up going to my parents. I would much rather do my traveling at night so we left when Ryan got off work on Wednesday which was 1 am. Ryan said he was fine to drive but as soon as we got outside of Vegas I could tell he was getting tired so we switched. I sang the whole way home to keep me awake. We rolled into Overton about 3 am. We were both so tired all we were wanting to do was sneak in and go to bed. Well, my mom didn't think we were going to be coming out so late so she locked the door. When I knocked on the door my brothers dogs started barking; right then I knew this was going to be a crazy night. SO, Tyler and his wife and two dogs were in my old room and my parents were in their room. My parents ended up going out to the toy hauler and sleeping out there so Ryan, Paisley and I could have their room with our crazy dogs. Dodger (Tyler's dog) and Khloe are so much alike every little sound they hear they start going crazy. So basically all night it was either Dodger or Khloe barking at each other across the house or Coco whining in her cage (Ryan put her in the cage because she wouldn't sit down). Needless to say I got the worst sleep in my life.

I decided to make Paisley a Thanksgiving day outfit. I was almost done sewing around the turkey's body then SNAP... my needle broke :( I was so mad because I only had about an inch left. I ended up finishing it at my mom's house Thanksgiving day. It's not perfect but I still think it looks pretty good. I cant wait to make her one for Christmas!

We were suppose to stay the night again and leave early the next day but we had an idea of how the night was going to go we decided to leave that night. Which I am so glad we did because I don't think I could have had another sleepless night.

P.'s face cracks me up in this one.
This one too.

Since this weeks family picture was so bad, I decided to share two. We look good right?
Poor Ryan is passing another kidney stone. About 7 months ago he had to have a lithotripsy(definition at bottom of page). He had FOUR kidney stones for about 3-4 months, YIKES. Some people compare passing a kidney stone to giving birth, well I don't know about you but I think it would hurt for a guy to give birth down there. I bet if he changed his diet he wouldn't have this problem. I am taking him to a doctor where there are going to do a more natural approach to heal him by doing a muscle test. I couldn't even believe that Ryan agreed to do this, to make sure I heard him right I had to ask him twice. Ryan and I are very different when it comes to our bodies, for instance Ryan would rather take a pill to get rid of a headache where I would just drink more water. If I can get Ryan to go to one of my doctors who knows what I can do next... maybe I can get him to eat a salad. Now THAT would be something to blog about :)

A treatment, typically using ultrasound shock waves, by which a kidney stone or other calculus is broken into small particles that can...
