Wordless Wednesday

Here are my pictures from yesterdays post!

My Dishing Diva girls!

Legend's shopping trip with my girls!

My absolutely FAB-U-LOUS dress!


Wow. I have been sucking at posting!! Every night when I have some time to actually blog, I get in a lazy funk and don't want to do it! I know I'm not that interesting, but I've actually had some fun things to blog about.

A brief summary:

Last week was our first week of rehearsals, and I have LOVED every minute! Sunday we had our first dance rehearsal and man was it a work out!

Speaking of workouts, I started waking up early before work and doing a workout! I am determined to get this body in to shape before having to bare quite a bit of it on stage!

Saturday morning, I went with a group of my close girlfriends to Legends (an outdoor shopping center in Kansas City) to do some shopping! This coming Saturday is Topeka Civic Theatre's Renna Awards night and everyone gets all gussied up! So...we definitely had to do some major shopping for this event! I wasn't going to get anything since I already had a dress I could wear...until my friend found a Caaaa-ute! dress for me to try on. I did, not thinking anything of it, and when I walked out of the dressing room was told that I NEEDED this dress. I bought it. And shoes. And a ring. And the whole outfit was cheaper than the one dress I had. Holla! :) Oh and I also spent a butt load of moula on my son!!! Baby Gap and Carter's were having some crazy good sales! He's going to be quite the looker this fall/winter! :)

Saturday night I got together with some other great girls for our first 'Dishing Diva's' night. My friend Molly and I got this idea from a blogger friend, Ashley, where every month we get together with a group of girls for a fun and festive girls night! Ashley and her friends have a night called 'Kitchen Queens' and it mostly revolves around food! We wanted to do the same kind of thing but we might also try to squeeze in some fun crafts, movies, etc. every once in a while. We had great food, lots of laughs, and got to meet new people. Hopefully this can continue and grow in to something wonderful! :)

Like I said before, Sunday was my first dance rehearsal...and it was also a fussy day for my baby boy! I think his top teeth were bothering him and he just didn't seem himself. Thank God he seems better this week so far!

Ok so there's my review of my week/weekend. I do have pictures from Saturday's events that I will post...maybe tomorrow for my Wordless Wednesday. IF I get around to uploading my pictures! Oops!

Loves and hugs to you all!

Look Who's Evil NOW!

No, I haven't gone completely mad and am worshiping Satan....but I did, however, get cast in a show at Topeka Civic Theatre (a local community theatre) titled 'Evil Dead: The Musical'. My character is Shelly, the ditzy, slighty slutty college girl :) I don't think it fits my personality at all! Totally kidding!! Well, I'm not a slut but I can play one real well on stage! Rehearsals start tonight and I'm so super pumped. This will be 1) my first production since having Brogan AND being pregnant with him and 2) my first production at this theatre. I've done several shows in the past but they've all been at another community theatre in town, Helen Hocker. The cast is amazing and I think it'll be a blast! This show is slighty out of my comfort zone (I have to be comfortable wearing a bra on stage...yikes!) but I'm so ready to tackle it! It gives me the movtivation to work out! 2 of my great, great friends are choreographing the show so I know the dancing will be phenominal! If you're in the Topeka area in Ocotber, make sure you get tickets and come see this show! It runs for 3 weekends starting October 9, with an added show on Halloween night.

Here's the professional productions website! It gives an overview of the show and a cute video!


Have a super, EVIL, day!

11 Months and 2 New Additions!

Just wanted you to see somethin'!

Do you see these those 2 little pearly whites?? Aren't they the cutest lil' teeth you've ever seen?? :)

Today our Brogan is 11 months old. I cannot believe it! In just one short month, it will officially be one year since I gave birth to our son. Again, I cannot believe it! The birthday party planning has already begun (at least 2 months ago) but I know it won't seem real until that day or even a couple weeks after.

Brogan is so close to walking! He has a push toy he plays with all the time and also moves from one object to the next by holding on and walking side to side. He's getting better at standing by himself without holding on but he hasn't quite gotten the nerve up to move his feet! I don't think I'm quite ready for him to figure out walking on his own. Not only will he be constantly on the go but he will be closer and closer to 'not needing his momma'.. :) Just teasing...this child will ALWAYS need/want his momma. At least that's what I tell myself right now. Don't take that away from me, ok? ;)

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Saturday was NOT spent playing in our jammies ALL day! I would NEVER leave my son in his onsie from the night before; I'm NOT that lazy people! I even showered later in the day and got all dolled up...NOT! It was NOT a great day with my boy!

Sunday we did NOT head to Kansas City to see my sisters new house. The house was filled with tons of people and my son did NOT take an absolute perfect nap! He did NOT want to participate in everything and definitely wanted to sleep for hours! Needless to say, I knew he'd fall asleep on the hour ride home. Ok, so maybe NOT! :) Monday morning did NOT come quick but I am thrilled that my husband and father to my son will be home in the evenings now!!!!

Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great Not Me Monday!

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. Baby Stellan has been doing great lately! Pray hard that this sweet baby boy gets to go home soon!

This last weekend was NOT an absolute blast! Friday night I was NOT able to get together with some great girlfriends to go see my husband and other friends in a musical titled My Fair Lady. I did NOT almost fall asleep, however, since this was my 2nd time seeing the show. Oops ;) Saturday afternoon was NOT spent with Tommy's side of the family since his aunt and uncle from Texas were here to visit. The weather was NOT absolutely beautiful! I also did NOT get to try playing a Wii for the first time and did NOT fall in love! :)(*Sidenote: We were told that we are getting a Wii for Christmas and I could NOT be happier..seriously!!) I did NOT have the best time acting like I was 10 years old again! However, my arm and shoulder do NOT feel like I lifted weights all weeekend...hehehe! Sunday was NOT spent over at Tommy's mom's again...but this time I did NOT take advantage of the quiet pool while my baby boy took a nap! VERY VERY RELAXING! I happened to NOT get some sun either! :) And...I might NOT have played the Wii again until past my baby's bedtime! OOPS!

So...what did you NOT do this weekend?? Anything NOT exciting??

Happy Monday friends!
