TWINS!!

G and I spent the weekend in Seattle eating a f*ckton of food visiting with our good friends, Joy and Matt. They have two kids, Mia and Ryan.  Ryan totally hated us, which was really funny.
Thankfully, Mia loved us!!

Or she was good at pretending.  Thanks Mia!

While we were in Seattle, I was dying to see our other friends’ twins!! I have a crazy obsession with twins. I just love them and think they’re totally weird and cool. I don’t want to have kids, but if I did, I’d really hope for twins.  I know, I’m an idiot.  So…I was so happy to meet my new best friends Jemma and Zoe!

Jemma and Zoe are nine months old and they are both super happy, adorable girls. And they weren’t scared of us at all!  It took all my self control not to steal those kids from Nikki and Zach.  I LOVE TWINS!

Three posts in ONE WEEK!

I think this is a record for 2014 and 2015.  Go me!

First of all, Happy Easter!  George and I went to my mom’s this morning to hang with the family.  George had to work this afternoon so we could only stay a few hours.  We got there first and my sister’s family showed up a few minutes later.  Kennedy was all dressed up and ready to party.

She was even willing to take a picture with dumb G!

It was surprisingly beautiful this morning so we were able to spend some time outside!  Mom and Tim even got a great picture with some of the kids.

Little K and me!

Oh, I cut off a lot more of my hair.  I think I’m going to lighten it up a bit in a couple of weeks so stay tuned.  It’s been a while since I really messed with my hair so it’s time!

Jeff’s family was running really late because his wife, Tomoe, is trapped in tax hell and working one million hours a week.  Unfortunately, George and I had to leave before they showed up.  Sad.  But I have a few pictures to share of the boys from a few weeks ago when we all got together at our house.  Of course, we went to the park!

I was Kennedy’s mode of transportation:

And take a look at these adorable boys:

Yes, Kaz smiles now.

And Kai is going to be turning five in a couple of months.  It’s hard to believe he will be in school soon!

Oh and one last thing from today:

I made these vegan chocolate chip cookies and they are amazing.  Seriously.  Especially right out of the oven.  Please make them.  You won’t be disappointed.

Sewing Project

Now that I’m not working as much I’ve had some time to actually get some sh*t done!  First, I attempted a little sewing.  I wanted to put something on our chairs so Bing’s hair wouldn’t get all over them.  I started with some memory foam:

I thought it would be easy to make a cushion that we could remove whenever we had people over to the house.  Good idea, right?  So then I found some fabric:

I cut out enough rectangles to make two cushions.  I didn’t measure anything because I hate measuring.  I just put the memory foam on the fabric and cut around it.  Brilliant.

I sewed all the little patches together AND IT WORKED!!!

And Bing loves it, too!

I don’t think I’ll be sewing my own clothes any time soon, but I’m pretty much an expert at sewing almost very straight lines.

Quitter

Tonight I worked my very last shift as a pizza delivery driver…thirteen months after I started.  And I didn’t think I’d last a day.  Turns out I’m pretty good at working at a pizza parlor!!  Even when there are a million kids running around like @ssholes angels.

That picture was taken tonight.  I spent a lot of time carrying food out to the customers in the restaurant.  Wouldn’t you be so happy to have me bring your food out to you?!!

And before you ask…no, I haven’t paid off all of my student loans (and I still have a f*ckton left).  The extra income was very nice, but all I did was work.  I’m pretty tired.  So, for now, one job is enough for me.  But it’s nice to know that I can always work as a pizza delivery driver if sh*t gets really bad.

Time to get back to a new normal.  One job.  I can’t even remember what it’s like to have one job.  So weird.  Maybe I’ll blog more…

Kind of a Kennel

At 6:45 am this morning, my sister dropped off this nightmare wonderful dog:

IMG_20150318_075857

And yes, Bailey’s still looking for her brain.  Bing was not amused:

IMG_20150318_180208

You can’t really tell in that picture, but Bing is very puffed up and pretty much wanted to scratch Bailey’s face off.

After putting Bing in the bedroom with George, Bailey hung out in the living room while I worked in the office.  I thought everything was okay.  Obviously, I forgot Bailey still doesn’t have a brain.  She peed about a gallon of pee on our couch.  We are no longer friends. And now I want to scratch her face off.

Thankfully, my mom picked up Bailey about 30 minutes later.

About an hour after that, my uncle dropped off Buster!  I have no idea what kind of dog Buster is, but I’m pretty sure he has a brain.

Buster’s going to spend the week with us next week so we thought we’d do a trial overnight tonight just to make sure he isn’t completely freaked out.  We’ve only spent time with him on two occasions so I don’t mind testing it out a night before a week long experiment.

And we love Buster.  He likes to watch March Madness and HGTV!

I guess he’s not actually watching, but sleeping is just as good.  As long as he doesn’t bark and pee all over everything, we can handle him.  Buster is a winner!

Want to see another winner?

Kennedy put on her helmet all by herself.  It’s backwards.  My sister said she’s insane.  I think she’s incredible.
