Happy Birthday Hiedi!

Tonight we went out for Hiedi's birthday. She is 27 now! Woo hoo! We had so much fun. I love giggling and it came so naturally for us to be together without feeling awkward or like we were trying too hard. I have known Hiedi for almost 7 years now but we really don't know each other THAT well. She dated my brothers friend Pete. Pete came to my wedding and so Hiedi came too. Little did I know that years down the road we would still be friends and hanging out. Crystal, Hiedi and I went to Mimis Cafe for dinner. Then we went to Target. lol...

I know, we are lame, but we had fun. That's all that matters.
Nicely done Hiedi! lol
I have now decided I need to go tanning.
p.s. this is like the first time in almost two weeks I was able to do my hair with only minimal pain! YIPEE! I only had to ice once today too. YAAY!





Calling all "The Hills" viewers...

You know I like Lauren. I have always said I like her. But I totally agree with this article. Time to forgive and forget and MOVE on. If you don't want to be friends with Heidi, then don't, but don't me immature about it either.

Read this article.

Do you agree with the article?

Picking Strawberries

A few friends and our kiddos went to a Strawberry Field to pick our own berries. It was really fun and something I have never done before. I was pretty sore from bending over in the same position for 35 minutes, but I iced when I got home. I am not sure how people can do that ALL DAY LONG! You do whatcha gotta do I guess.
This is the place we went to in Carlsbad. U-pick Strawberries!
Kasen, Brielle and Ethan following each other through the paths to find the best of the best!
Picking strawberries was hard for the kids. They didn't understand to PLUCK at the stem. Not to grab the strawberry itself and squeeze and YANK. So, the kids hands and fingers were totally red and juicy when they were done.
Licking off the juice after squeezing, not plucking.

Bunch.

He thought his bucket was full but cheap mommy wouldnt let him be done until the strawberries were overflowing from the top

Showing off the end results (and playing in the dirt a little bit too)

Bored

I got bored yesterday while the boys were watching the hockey game, so I decided to take Kasen outside and take some picture of him playing. He LOVES his plasma car. It was broken for a couple months and we got it fixed like 2 weeks ago and he LOVES to play outside now. He is always wanting to go play on his plasma car, his big wheels or his bike. He likes to go for little rides around the neighborhood on his diego bike.


He paused a few times for me yesterday to take some pics.







March for Babies

Two years ago I walked for the March of Dimes. They have since changed their name to March for Babies. I decided this year to walk again, but try and get my friends to walk with me so I made it an event for my playgroup. 5 other girls walked with me, and one girl even signed her hubby up, THANKS Michelle! And thanks again Owen for all the picture taking and stroller help!

Since Kasen was a preemie, I feel a special place in my heart for those poor families and children who have to deal with all that comes along with having a baby born too early.

The march for babies is a 5k. Not too bad. I felt like that walk was a lot shorter than 3.1 miles. Maybe that's just me, but I was busy taking care of kasen in the stroller and just chatting with friends so it went by fast for me.

Here are a few pic's from the walk.


Kasen before the walk.





We just walked right along the coast the whole time. It was so beautiful!


Pretty good for just randomly throwing my hand up and taking a picture without seeing.


Markers.


LDS Moms of North County Team. (one stroller is hidden behind the girls)

All us girls, Kasen snuck out of his stroller to get a peak at the hotties.


When the walk was over, we got back and a band was playing. Kasen has super sensitive ears and wasn't fond of the 12 year old singing.

After the walk.

THANK YOU to all those girls who walked with me for such an important cause. Thank you to all those who supported me. Thank you to all those who donated, family and friends. You guys are great, I am blessed to have all of you in my life. Especially Kasen. :)

Flower Fields

Our playgroup went to the Carlsbad Flower Fields on Monday afternoon. It's been a long week, sorry for those I have promised the photos to, I am just now getting around to doing them.


Kasen TRYING to smile for the camera but the sun kept making him look funny. I don't get it.


Just ignore the DO NOT CROSS tape, we got in trouble for it.
In FRONT of the DO NOT CROSS tape! We learned our lesson.

Kasen, Ethan and Brielle playing ring around the rosie

Aww tender, yet cheesey!

Easter Pics

I was searching through some old pictures a little bit ago trying to find pictures from Kasen and I going to the Flower Fields lasy year. I was going to send them to Jeremy's mom along with the new ones we take tomorrow. I found this:
Easter 2007
Easter 2008

What a difference a YEAR can make. Wow. That's all I have to say. Wow.

Here you go Ljo!

This isn't meant to make you feel better, only to let you know there are others who have experienced what you have.

At the San Diego Temple a couple weeks ago in the bathroom with my friend Autumn.

I was standing at the mirror in my temple dress pulling my hair back. My arms were up in the air putting my hair in a pony tail. And this is how it happened:

Ignorant lady walks in (in her early 60's I would assume)

Ignorant Lady: Aww! I see you are expecting another little one, huh?

Britt: (I look in the mirror behind me to make sure I am the one she is talking to..yep the only one around) Actually, no I am not.

Ignorant Lady: Oh Susan! Why do you say things like that? Foot in mouth. Foot in mouth!

Britt: (awkwardly giggles) Well this is a maternity dress, I got it when I was pregnant with my son (mind you Kasen is 3.5 years old now)

Ignorant Lady: Oh, so your son must not be old enough for you to have lost all your baby weight yet, am I at least right on that one?

Britt: (holding back all agression seeing as how I am in the temple) No, actually my son is 3. I've had plenty of time to lose the weight.

Ignorant Lady: (feeling flat out ridiculous at this point, I would hope) Well I'm still trying to work off some weight. I've got babies that are your age.

Britt: Oh ok. (at this point I am raging and needing to leave, my friend Autumn is snickering in the stall next to me.)

How can people put their foot in their mouth SO far? How does it fit? I am over it, but really? I agree, don't ask unless you feel my baby kicking! Don't ask unless you see me bent over in pain groaning about how the baby is coming. Some people!

Fun with Friends

Last night some friends and I got to have a night out without the kiddos. We went to Panera Bread for dinner, which was super tasty. I am always hesitant to go there and get a sandwich, but I always love it. I recommend the Frontega Chicken Panini. Tasty!


Anyway, it was great to hang out with the girls and to be able to chat and be with friends WITHOUT the kids. I love nights like that.


We WERE going to go over to Clay and Latte but got there LITERALLY 3 minutes late and were not able to paint. They closed at 9 and take the last painters at 8. We got there at 8:03. Lame. So we walked over to the movie theatre, the only movie showing around 8 was superhero. No thanks. So we went to Michaels and hit up their big sale. I mainly looked around because I went to the sale on Monday. We went Coldstone after, it was closed. So Chris and Michelle went home and Crystal and I went to target, not wanting to go home yet.


Crystal and I acted like giddy little girls and laughed the whole time we were in target. We had so much fun! I am glad I went last night...same time next week? lol...



Thank you to Jeremy for watching Kasen so that I could have a night out with my friends! You are the best babe! I love you.

Muscles 'n Hats

Kasen really likes to flex his muscles lately. He flexes so hard that he starts shaking and has to take a deep breath afterwards. Look at those guns!
So I just told him to smile for the camera cause I thought he looked cute with his hat on. Well, he squatted, threw out his arms, and a few choice fingers. Nice.
So we tried again, SMILE...nope, he thought I said ACT LIKE A MONKEY. I can see how those sound a like. Silly Kasen.

Kasen and Bailey-my two kids

video

Im bummed because the video is a little dark. Bailey seriously cracks me up. She gets really hyper sometimes and starts running laps around the house. She makes her own obstacle course around the couches and through the chairs and under the tables. It's SO funny. Kasen REALLY gets excited to play with her and gets really loud and hyper. (If you can't tell) I am so glad we have Bailey. She makes me so happy. I love her to death.

Dairy Queen Cakes and high quality DONT mix

So my friend Bridget's sister got a birthday cake from Dairy Queen for her boyfriend. She pre-ordered it and told them what she wanted it to say: Happy Birthday Brady.


She went to go pick up the cake today (brady's birthday) and this is what she found?!



Ok, so I REALLY don't mean to be rude when I say this....but what kind of white trash cake is this? First off, the color is putrid! Second, they messed up the letter H, tried to wipe the green off the white and didn't succeed, then just wrote over it...nope can't tell. Third, I am not trying to be dumb, or brag or anything like that, but really? The writing? Kasen can HONESTLY write better than that. Kasen, just a reminder is 3!

I can't help but laugh! Bridget laughed too so I don't feel guilty laughing. That is hilarious. What quality work you get from Dairy Queen!

Update

Just an update for those who have read my last post. Kasen woke up......















DRY!
Yipee! I am excited. We will try it again tonight in hopes for the same results tomorrow morning.
Also, on a side note- I am completely devastated because my son has decided that I am not his MOMMY anymore. I am now his MOM. I don't know why this bothers me so much, but it does. He calls me mom now. He still calls Jeremy daddy most of the time, but sometimes is dad as well. It bothers Jeremy a little too, but not as much as it bothers me. I'm to the point where I want to stop answering when he calls me mom. Isn't that so sad? I know its lame to be so hurt by this, but does anyone feel the same way I do? I feel like he is not my little boy anymore, he is my grown up boy now. Sad.

Milestone!

My son is 3.5 (just about) and has eaten his FIRST hot dog today. It took much convincing and bribing, but he ate it. I can't believe it. Those who know Kasen KNOW that this is a HUGE feat for him. My poor little boy is NOT interested in food one bit. It's not just that he is picky, he just has better things to do than eat. Even if it's just sitting there staring at the wall. To him? Much better than eating. But he ate a hot dog tonight! I can't believe it. Really can't believe it!


Yes, I realize it's not the most flattering picture of Kasen, but the most exciting thing here is what's on the plate. Concentrate on the PLATE!

Also- Kasen went to bed with UNDERWEAR on tonight for the first time. Not a pull up. Wish me luck! lol
