Baptized & B-dizzilie

Jaden was baptised on March 6th & Mike & I couldn't be prouder of him! He was so cute because he was so excited! He was beaming the whole day! I was so grateful to all of the family that could make it. Jenny even drove all that way from Vegas! It meant so much to be able to share it with loved ones. We all came back to our house for donuts, fruit & juice afterwards & I just thought that the day went so well. Love you Jaden!

And now I am officially the big 2-9! My b-day was on 3/14, which landed on the sabbath this year, so Mike took me out the night before. It was so much fun, he took me to a restaurant called Luganos! Sooo delish! Mike had apparently googled "best Italian restaurants in SLC" & this was one that came up. So neither of us had been & it was fun to try out something new. I would highly recommend it. In fact I am craving it as of 5 minutes ago.... He then took me to "Dear John", it gets a 7 out of 10 from mua. And then we came home & had yummy chocolate cake that the boyz had made me earlier in the day. And on Sunday (my actual birthday) Camren gave me some roses that he had picked out all by himself, such a romantic! And Mike gave me his present, okay, I'll give you three hints: It's sleek & black, I am using it right now & it rhymes with Maphop...... A LAPTOP! Ding Ding Ding... you are correctomundo, now give yourself a big ol' pat on the back! On my actual b-day my Madre made me some yummo fried chicken & mashed potatoes! One of my faves! Thanks so much to everyone who made my day special! :)

Lyrics to my life...

So I am going to be posting all about Jadens baptism & my recent b-dizle, but for some reason this particular post has been floating around in my head lately & I just needed to put it on here & whatev's. So the other goodies are still to come, but for now you get to get a glimpse into my randomness that is my brain.

I am crazy mad about music! Always have been. I feel like everything is a bazillion times better when music is playing. I feel like some song writers must have seen inside of my emotions & written a song about it, because I can hear a song & I feel like this person knows me & gets me. I may be making myself out to be a true blue psycho, but I am seriously serious, I sometimes if I find a song that puts better into words the point that I am trying to get across to those really close to me (my cute Huzzy, a sis or bro, or even Ma or Pa), I will play that song to them & it almost is a way of my communicating what I can't put into words. I just feel that music has so much feeling behind it too, that just that alone helps me to try to help others understand mua better. Run on sentence-o-rama! I don't mind, I write as I think/talk & I definitely think/talk in run on sentences. Anywhoo, so there is a LOT of songs/lyrics out there that I wish that I had the talent to actually come up with cause they are flippin' amazeballs. Oh, & there is just way too many for me to ever recollect & post at this time, but here's a few...

*"Time never had the chance to heal your heart, just a number always counting down to a new start. If you always knew the truth, then the world would spin around you. Are you dizzy yet?"
and from the same song, diff part...
*"If everything I meant to you, you can lick and seal then fold in two, then I've been so blind."
-"Dizzy" Jimmy Eat World
*"Cause when you cry, all of your tears I will wipe away. And when you laugh, who do you think got you that way? And when you dream baby, when you wake up, is it me you long to see?"
- "Look at Me" Keri Noble
*"Your baby blues, so full of wonder, your curly cues, your contagious smile. And as I watch, you start to grow up. All I can do is hold you tight."
same song, diff part...
*"When the clouds will rage in, and the storms will race in, but you will be safe in my arms.
Rains will pour down, waves will crash all around. But you will be safe in my arms."
- "In my arms" Plumb
* "But if you never try, you'll never know just what your worth."
- "Fix You" Coldplay
* "You don't have to put up a fight, you don't have to always be right. Let me take some of the punches for you tonight."
- "Sometimes you can't make it on your own" U2
* "Just live your life. Ain't got no time for no haters. Just live your life. No telling where it
will take ya."
- "Live your Life" T.I. feat Rhianna
* "Time it was, and what a time it was, it was a time. A time of innocence, a time of confidences. Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph. Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you."
- "Bookends" Simon & Garfunkel
* "And now your my whole life, now you're my whole world. I just can't believe the way I feel about you. We'll look back someday, at this moment that we are in. And I'll look at you and say 'And I thought I loved you then"
-"Then" Brad Paisley
* "All of these lines across my face tell you the story of who I am. So many stories of where I've been. And how I got to where I am. But these stories don't mean anything when you got no one to tell them to. It's true: I was made for you."
- "Story" Brandi Carlile
* "I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance. Never settle for the path of least resistance......... And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you DANCE"
- "I hope you dance" Lee Ann Womack
* "May your smile shine on. Don't be scared, your destiny may keep you warm."
- "Stop crying your heart out" Oasis
* "Don't let your soul get weary & confused. You will be still, don't try. Don't let your heart get heavy, child, Inside you there's a strength that lies."
- "Be Here Now" Ray Lamontagne
* "We'll make a wish and send it on a prayer. We know our dreams can all come true, with love that we can share. With you I never wonder, Will you be there for me? With you I never wonder, You're the right one for me."
- "Love of a Lifetime" Firehouse
* "Don't matter if I step out on the scene, or sneak away to the Philippines, they still got pictures of my derriere in the magazines. You want a piece of me?"
- "Piece of Me" Britney Spears
Okay, so that last one I just LOVE the way she says "derriere" in the song. No, not that she actually uses the word derriere, but quite literally the way she says it.
So, is it just me that thinks in lyrics all of the time & gets so connected to a song sometimes, you would have thought that I gave birth to it? Or do any of you do it too? Fess up. No, it's just me? Well in the lyric of Gnarls Barkley....
*"Does that make me crazy? Does that make me crazy? Does that make me crazy?

Loving Right Now

Here are some awesome things that I am LOVING RIGHT NOW...

*The Wendy Williams Show!!! I found this show through "The Soup" which I religiously watch. The Soup is a show that makes fun of other shows, well it kept making fun of this show & so I ended up being curious enough to actually watch the show & I love it! It cracks me up.... she is straight up crazy & fabulous at the same time. My favorite thing about her is that her "sources" that she uses for "Hot Topics" on the show are from like the National Enquire & Star Magizine & shiznits & she's dead serious! So Awesome!

*MAC's Cremesheen Glass, oh & their Dazzleglass. It's like Patent Leather for your lips, need I say more?

*Jennifer Aniston in the newest issue of "Architectural Digest" I just am obsessed with her anyways & then to get a look into the place she calls home is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The house is just beyond & I love seeing the pictures of her chilling at her sweet pad. She is a "bestie" to me in my head.

*The show "Guiliana & Bill" I just adore her already from "E! News" where I get all of my most important news from daily at 5:00 pm, & I saw a special where she got married to Bill (from The Apprentice) in Italy & I said to my huzzy "I wish that they would just do a reality show already!" Well about a year & a half passed and I am minding my own business watching E! & all of the sudden I see a preview for their reality show! I about pee'd myself (yes, I do get THAT excited over these things)! They are in there second season & I love it even more than I had thought I would in my mind before there even was a show! She is going through all of this infertility crap right now & I feel like she too is another "bestie" of mine, if only in my mind!

*The Buried Life, if you haven't watched it, then you shall, cause it's ridicuosly cool! It's these 4 guys from Canada that wrote a list of 100 things they want to do before they die & for everything they cross off on their list they help a stranger cross something off on theirs. Sooo good, makes me laugh & cry, not even kidding. That's all I'll tell you about it for now because I want to do a whole post dedicated to this show. So stay tuned....

Blogging Backwards

Well Hello there! I feel so current, we actually have the Internet again. So lucky for all of my many adoring fans out there, I may just be back in the blogging biznatch bidnis! Oh, there is none of you left out there? Never was to begin with? My bad. I will still do it anyway for any of you blog hopping bunny's out there that are adoring fans of other blogs that may or may not lead you to mine! I feel like there is so much that I need to catch you all up on and just simply not enough time. So we will make this more like a PowerPoint presentation & just highlight the main events (not only do I feel current, I feel a wee bit professional)....

*We are currently in the process of putting in our adoption papers, hence the reason that we got the Internet again. Stressed out wouldn't even come close to describing how I am feeling about the whole process. But we are just starting out on our "Adoption Journey" & I feel like this whole getting/having another baby thing is going to pay off sometime & that I definitely am being taught a lesson in patience. I, so far only know the beginning of this part of my story & I know that when I see the other parts unfold & come together however & whenever they are supposed to, I will look back & realize that "Oh, that's why!" & I will hopefully be better because of it all. I am looking forward to that, & to be completely honest with ya, that's what keeps me going most of the time with this "I know there is another child out there meant to be in our family" thing. This may sound sappy, but it is honestly how I feel & I am just putting it out there... How can you miss someone sooo much that you have never even met? I'll leave it at that.

*Jaden, our oldest, is getting baptised tomorrow & I can't hardly believe it! I mean I remember the day I was baptised like it was yesterday & now he gets baptised tomorrow. Am I really that old? I mean I did have him when I was 10 years old (Ahem...) & everything, but really, time is a funny thing. I am so proud of him & all of the choices he is making!

*As the previous post mentioned, I started dance back up & I am loving it! There are moments when I am in the middle of teaching a class & I look around at the girls & I just get a huge grin on my face. It's like I am seeing a glimpse of a dream that I had a million times as a little girl growing up & having my own studio, & yet it's not just a dream anymore, it's real life & it makes my heart giggle with delight!

*Camren, our youngest, has pretty much grown out of his "girlie" stage. I don't know exactly what triggered the loss of interest in high heels & everything that sparkles. But either way, I think that it is a good thing. Whatever makes him happy, if that ended up being lip gloss & tiara's then so be it. People don't get all uppity when little girls like to play with soccer balls & get their clothes all muddy, so I didn't get too uppity about his likes. And I think in part by me letting him have his "princess time" he kind of did it & then moved onto not really wanting "princess time", and naturally wanting to play more "boy stuff", according to him. Now, don't get me wrong, I still see him getting a little jealous of the My Little Pony stickers that I give to my dancers. But I think that it just gives him more character & he's going to be one heck of a ladies man when he grows up because he will be more in touch with his sensitive side. Not a bad thing.

*Mike & I celebrated our 9th Anniversary on December 28th & it was so fun because 2 days later on the 30th my brother Spencer got married to his sweetie Tiffany in the SLC Temple (same temple as me & Mike had 9 years earlier). It was awesome to be there & watch them get sealed & reminisce back on our own wedding day. And I have just loved having a new sister in law! Tiffany already has added so much to the Jackman family!

Well, I do believe that that will be all for now. I'll be back on this time sooner rather than later! :)
