OLYMPICS! - It has been so fun watching the Olympics this week! Are these athletes not just simply amazing! They are so talented and so dang physically fit. Michael Phelps is built like a swimming machine. I so hope he breaks the record for the most gold medals in a single Olympics. And what about our American gymnasts? Thighs like rocks. When I'm on the treadmill at the gym I picture the gymnasts' thighs as a motivator. Move that incline up just one more...go just a little faster.......and I'm out. Time to go sit on the bike and read my book.
GLAMPING - So I discovered "glamping" (glamorous camping) on our little family trip and I'm so excited about it. According to "Ranch and Coast" - an annoying magazine I get in the mail about all the fancy people who live around here - "glamping" is all the rage. It's when you get to enjoy the pleasures of camping by day and then enjoy a nice shower and bed each night. Let me tell you - I'm definitely a glamper and once you've done it, there is no going back! Sorry Kenny. Don't know when I'll be joining you in the tent again. Car - it's too late for you (since you enjoy being dirty so much) but there is still hope for Dayna. She will be glamping with my mom and me before she knows it!
FOOTBALL SEASON - it is upon us. If you know me well, you're probably wondering why this is on my good things list. By November it will definitely be a bad thing, but for now the idea of the upcoming season is making my husband happy which is in turn making me happy. He's busy checking his season ticket seats, arranging for our new DirecTV service that will bring every game possible to us in HD, and the smack talk with my little bro (Chargers vs. Broncos) has begun in full force. What can I say. How can I hate something that makes him so dang happy? I'm actually getting excited for a little football to start. Bring on Fall.
BREAKFAST RAMBLINGS - Addison's vocabulary has improved so much lately and it has made for some pretty funny conversations between her and Ellie. The other morning at breakfast Addie told Kenny she wanted to go to work with him. Ellie answered "no you don't Add - at work daddy has to spend money and he doesn't have any colors there. Besides you're just a toddler." Translation - I once tried to explain daddy earning money at work and she confused that with spending money. "Colors" are what Addison calls her crayons - she loves to draw. And toddler??? Ellie has been referring to Addie as a toddler a lot lately (must have heard me say it) and for some reason it comes out so funny. Kenny and I crack up every time...
OBSESSIONS - for the week have been 24 and Breaking Dawn. We're mid season two of 24 and it's better than ever. A nuclear bomb is about to end life for everyone in L.A. and Kenny and I are glued to the tube. As my cousin Jason calls it "Jack Bauer Power Hour!" Bring it!
I'm also half way through Breaking Dawn and am loving every minute of this book! The only problem is that I have too many things calling my name each night at around 8:00 when the girls are asleep. Who needs me more? Michael Phelps, Jack Bauer, or my forever favorite vampire Edward??? Life's full of very good things.
