Welcome, Rowdy the Rhino

TDS got a new exotic animal last Monday. His name is Rowdy and he is really sweet. He weighs in at 3640 pounds and he is 7 years old. I posted some pictures of him. You can see by the picture of Rowdy and me that I was a bit nervous at first to be so close to him but I tried not to show it. He loves to run everywhere and jump in his new pond. I can't wait for the new baby Gregory to meet him soon!

Crazy Dreams

Last night was probably the worst night of sleep I have ever had. First of all, I fell asleep hard on the couch at 8:45. I then went to bed at 9:30 and I was wide awake. It was so frustrating!!! Then, I woke up at 1:40am and was starving. I mean I was so hungry that it woke me up. I convinced myself to go back to bed without getting up to eat. Then, the crazy dreams started. I dreamed that one of my friends from high school (I haven't seen her in almost 10 years) was pregnant also and contacted me to "reconnect." Then the next dream took place at a huge stadium. I was with Justin and his immediate family. We were waiting for the festivities to start (I have no idea what we were there to see) and out comes my friend Meredith's sister, Emily, on this huge horse. She starts riding all over the stadium and up into the aisles. She stops where we are sitting (keep in mind I have never met her) and says, "I know you." We end up talking for awhile and then she rides off into the sunset.

My dreams were over at 4:30am and I was awake again because I had a horrible crick in my neck. It hurt really bad. I never really went to sleep after that. Hopefully, I will catch some ZZZ's tonight!

I love Turbo Tax

This year I decided to tackle our taxes by myself. We have always used an accountant in Austin, but I thought that I could do it myself and save $50.00. How many diapers will that buy?

My sister and brother-in-law use Turbo Tax every year. I thought, "If they can use it (he's a cardiologist and she's an RN), this trash woman/tree farm specialist surely can do it." It was really easy...I did have a few questions for my brother-in-law. I submitted our taxes Saturday and I just got our return in our checking account today. I am pumped!!!

This Blog is really funny. It's called "June Cleaver after a six-pack." It really mad me laugh.

So much to write about

I have so much to write about today. First things first, I am so excited that Kristy Lee Cook was booted from AI last night. She needed to go about 6 weeks ago. Also, did anyone else cry when David Cook performed? I loved his rendition of "Always Be My Baby" by Mariah Carey. I really would like for him to win the entire competition.

Justin got home after being gone for 7 days. It felt like an eternity! I am so glad to have my husband, best friend, and office mate back. I get so sentimental these days. I am blaming it on the hormones.

My good friends, Daine and Karina, found out that they will be having a little girl in late August/early September. I am so excited for them.

I have had an insane need to bake lately. I love sweets, but I only will keep one of what I bake and then give the rest to friends. They have told me I have got to stop. My motto is, "If I'm going to gain weight...we are ALL going to gain weight." In the last week I have baked, 32 peanut butter cup brownie cupcakes(thanks, Paula Deen), 37 pecan pralines, a dozen lemon bars, 2 dozen M&M/chocolate chip cookies, and a tray of Mississippi mud. I have got to get this under control or I won't have any friends left.

I have a new job title at the office. I would like to be called the "Tree Farm Specialist" from now on. Justin brought back 3 Monterey Oak trees from Texas Landfill Management's tree farm. Justin's dad wanted us to see if we could sell them out here. We have three and everyone wants one. I didn't realize that trees were so popular!

I hope everyone is doing well. So long for now.

My Celebrity Look-Alikes


He found is ROCK

Well, Bret Michaels found his "Rock of Love" last night. He picked Ambre, and I am so glad. Some people didn't like her because they found her to be not very nice. I loved this show and I am sad to see it end. My cousin, Beth, is hoping that he and Ambre break up so that we can have Rock of Love III. I have to admit, I wouldn't mind that at all. The reunion show is on next week at 9/8 C. Be sure to tune into VH1 and watch. Last night, they showed two girls getting in a fight. It was like Jerry Springer style.

I can't believe that I loved this show so much. From my baby website that I read, the babe doesn't have it's ears in place yet. Let's hope so! I don't want him/her to think that their mom is white trash!

I also got on the Poison website last night with Meredith. We are trying to figure out a way to get to Birmingham in July to see the band play. I already know what I will wear. My outfit will consist of a wife beater shirt and a short maternity jean skirt!!! I plan on completing the outfit with cowboy boots and a side ponytail.

I love this stuff!

I am obsessed with Pureology. It's a hair product line that is amazing for color treated hair (not that I color my hair). I started using the shampoo and conditioner back in January and I am still on the same bottles because you use such a small amount each day. Yesterday, I bought the blowdry amplify lotion. I used it last night and it was amazing. My friend, Meredith, told me she had never seen my hair look that good. She even called Justin (he's out of town) and told him it looked great. This is an item that will NOT, I repeat NOT, be cut out of my life when the baby comes. I already know that my I will be asking for it next year for Christmas in my stocking. I'll have to make sure that I am extra good this year!

Justin is Famous...But I already knew that!

Check out the link below. It's an article from this week's "Alpine Avalanche." If anyone would like a hard copy, I have 100 copies of the paper in my office right now. Just kidding...I only have one.


I am expecting E! to call any minute for an interview for his "True Hollywood Story." Anyone that would like to be interviewed as a "friend", please contact me and we will go over what you need to say in the interview.

I've got to run...my phone is ringing off the hook. It's crazy being married to a celebrity.

My Eggo is Preggo

Justin and I are pregnant!!! We are so excited. I am 11 weeks along and I pretty much feel like crap today. Oh well, it will pass! We have known for about 6 weeks, but I had to keep it a secret until my dad got here. He flew in Saturday and we told him the news! Everyone else in my family already knew (except my aunts and uncles on my dad's side). I have to give a "shout out" to Delilah for keeping a secret from my dad for so long. I now know I can tell her anything! I already knew that, but this was the ULTIMATE test. I haven't had any crazy dreams and I don't have a "feeling" about what I am having.

Everyone with kids keeps telling me my life will change, but I think they are all lying to me. How much can a newborn possibly change things??? Just kidding!!!
