A long post of random thoughts - just because I feel like typing out some of the many things running through my mind

- I've become quite the creative person over these last 3 1/2 months. No, not the kind of creative that makes cool things and sells them on etsy (though I wish I were this kind of creative). I'm this kind of creative, " can I feed Reese and fry the chicken at the same time???.....Ah-hah, I'll pull the drawer under the oven out so I can put my foot on it and bend my knee to hold one half of Reese's body while I use the corresponding hand to stir the chicken. GENIUS!!"

- I went to the dentist for the first time at a Heber office, and after having missed my appointments for over a year (while being pregnant and such) thankfully have no cavities! Hallelujah! While there they went on and on about how perfect my teeth were. The dental assistant called the other assistants and hygienists in the office over to come look at "how perfect" my teeth were. HA! I'm guessing this is their way of making you feel REALLY good, so that you want to come back to their office again and again (especially because they did pretty much the same thing to Eric when he went in last week). I fell for their ploy though, because frankly, I want to go back to them next time. Thanks Heber office for boosting my confidence! Terra, thanks for watching Reese while I went!

- Today I went to Provo, my dad made me a smoothie for lunch! DELICIOUS! The smoothie was made of 100% fresh fruit, thus didn't keep me full as long as a PBJ might have. I got home around 5 tonight, starving, and while thawing chicken in the microwave ate the two remaining slices of pizza from last nights dinner. That was good. Now for something sweet...ah, a couple snicker doodles. That got me thinking. I only have 5 chocolate chip cookies and 5 snicker doodles sitting out on my counter. Why am I thinking of this, you might ask. Well, two days ago I decided I felt like doing something nice. So I made half a batch of snicker doodles and half a batch of chocolate chip cookies. I was going to give a plate of them to my neighbors and a plate to a lady in our ward who just had foot surgery. Eric came home that night and asked why I had only made half batches, I told him that I didn't want there to be many left over after I gave away the two plates, because I know we'd eat anything that was left. Well, after the cookies were baked and ready to be plated and delivered it snowed! I lost motivation. No cookies were delivered and 24 snicker doodles and 14 chocolate chip cookies have been consumed by me and Eric within the last two days. What the... Oh, and now, after stuffing myself with pizza and cookies, the honey lime chicken enchiladas baking in the oven don't sound that exciting. Guess I'll just eat one - so I won't be thinking "I still need to eat dinner" all night long, even though I'm not hungry.

- I'm excited! I checked out weather {dot} com today to check Heber's 10-day forecast. Starting tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny and in the high 60's low 70's. My workout routine will resume. I LOVE working out, but don't workout when the weather is bad. I have a gym pass, but I quite dislike the gym - I hate exercising inside. Plus it is a 15 minute drive to the gym from my house. So, my gym pass is a waste, I'll probably never use it again. I LOVE walking out my back door onto my porch to jump rope and do some calisthenics. And then walk out my front door and go for a nice jog. Another thing, Reese LOVES being outside, and it is so much easier to take her out when the air isn't freezing cold! Plus she has some DANG cute summer clothes that I really want to dress her in. Lastly, I need a tan bad! Thank you good weather coming my way!

- My sister shops at Gymboree a lot and was so kind to give me some of her gym-bucks. I just got Reese $50 worth of stuff for $25. Thanks Aubrey!

- My friend Emily, from Novell, has a gift. She is ADORED by babies, including my own. Reese first met Emily maybe two months ago and loved her then. Today when I visited Novell Reese wasn't up for much, she was completely pooped, and somewhat zoned out. Then Emily came over and started talking to her. Reese miraculously pepped up and started mimicking the noises Emily was making. Emily is going to be a great mom someday.

You are a very funny girl :) I love your thoughts - you should share them more often. I love the cookie thought...been there! Also, you have very pretty, perfect teeth...but I have also gotten that ploy from that office. But they can't say it to EVERYONE...right??!! Eric, you and me must be the only ones that they have ever said that to ;)
