Ramblings of a Saturday Morning

It is a beautiful Saturday morning here in Cambridge, MN. I have some quiet time going on here, so I have a moment to write some stuff down here!
First of all...Brendan is offically 1 month old. It's so crazy to think that he has been apart of our family for a whole month...while it feels like he has been with us forever. So cool. He is growing in leaps and bounds. Here's a list of things he can do at 1 month!
*turn over on his side
*cry real tears
*smile like crazy (especially while he was up this morning between 2 and 4 a.m.)
*grab his nuk out of his mouth and toss it
*hold his head up for a pretty amazing amount of time
*make his mommy and daddy melt when he is in our arms
*Eat like a mad man (in 2 weeks he put on 1 pound and 6 ounces!!!)
*Sleep like a champ (ummm...except between that 2 to 4 a.m period)
*Poop like it's going out of style
*stick his tongue out
We are having so much fun with him and can't wait to see the changes another month will bring.
In other news, Grant has now caught 2 Musky's this year. I just got a call at about 7:20 a.m. saying that I needed to go out and buy 2 picture frames for inclusion to our fishing pictures shelf. Thanks to my beautiful pink and orange bulldawg, Grant caught a 39-40 inch Musky out at Rush Lake this morning. He has now passed me in fish count (I caught 2 in the Fall of 2006). He has now caught 3. Well, I guess I'd better start thinking hard about joining him on a fishing excursion soon so that I can remedy our fish count!!!
Oh and I just celebrated my 29th birthday last Sunday. 29 years. I really can't believe that's how old I really am. Somedays I feel like I'm still supposed to be in high school...just turning 18 and then reality sets in and I'm 29 years old. So weird. I'm so close to 30 now...WOW. I had a very nice birthday day...spent it with my boys. We drove down to the cities and visited Sonics (yum), then went to the Mall of America and Ikea for a little shopping. Then we hit Checkers restaurant on the way home. On Monday, we had a nice little dinner over at my in-law's house...we had crab legs for dinner which are my favorite!
Well, the baby's up and needing my attention. I guess that's all from me today.

This is so cool!!!

All righty people...I'm here to let you in on something so cool!

So, have you heard of the totally awesome, incredibly funny t.v. show called "The Big Bang Theory"? If you haven't, I'm so sorry. If you have, you rock! If you have and you love the show, you must check out this site This website is set up to lead show lovers to websites in which you can order the totally awesome shirts that are seen on the completly HI-larious character of Sheldon. (Ok...there are also some of Leonards shirts listed as well as some of the props on there too).

Well, that is it for now. I'll hopefully post some more pictures and write a little about my *gasp* 29th Birthday later.

Last week

I can't believe another week has flown by! It was actually a pretty fun week with some awesome garage saling on Thursday and family get togethers Saturday and Sunday.

I made a killing at garage sales in the White Bear Lake/Hugo areas on Thursday. At one garage sale I bought a whole new wardrobe for Baby Brendan...complete with a Buzz Lightyear costume and some toys. (Just so you husband and I are complete Disney Freaks and are already planning a trip in the fall to have Baby Brendan meet Mickey Mouse!)
We spent Saturday hanging out with my family for Father's Day. (picture at left is my Dad holding Brendan, my Mom and my niece Alayna, she's 9 months old) We had a very nice bbq and it was a gorgeous afternoon. Then we hung out at Grant's parents house for a bbq on Sunday evening. Again, very nice day and just a nice little quiet family gathering.
Grant got out to fish twice over the weekend, but was skunked both times. He had fun, but was a little discouraged after the outings.

This week is going to be a nice relaxing appointments or really any other real big plans. My parents will be coming up tomorrow (my dad is playing tennis with some friends and my mom and I will take a walk with Baby Brendan and Mr. Pibb, our dog) and after the activities, we will go out for lunch and celebrate my mom's birthday. Then on Friday my mom, sister, niece and grandma will come up to visit us. My Grandma has not had the chance to meet Baby Brendan yet, so it will be a really nice visit.

Well, that's it for now. Have a fantastic Monday!
