What's Up????

Here's what's up with us:

1) Me, mom, and Ash took Riley to Sea World the weekend after Mother's Day...we stayed in a suite at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and had a wonderful time. Riley LOVED Sea World, but I think we wore her out...we were there from 10 am til 6 pm when the park closed. We spent Saturday floating in the lazy river and hanging by the pool. Man, that place had some good hummus!

2) Jody and I have been married 11 sure has gone by in the blink of an eye. I probably don't tell him enough, but he's a great husband and a wonderful father. We celebrated our anniversary by ordering take out after Riley went to bed and then drinking entirely too much wine.

3) The day after our anniversary, we decided to take Riley to the lake. We just went to Phantom and messed around for a bit. I laid out face down on the deck and caught myself dozing off several times (little did I know I was actually "planking", how hip and cool am I?) Jody taught her how to start the boat and make it go. That was interesting.

4) While at the lake, Jody had left a banana in the seat of the boat and I sat down on just a bit of it. So now Riley is running around telling people "mommy squooshed daddy's banana!!" which sounds far dirtier from the mouth of a nearly 3 year old than you can imagine.

5) Riley has developed several "scary voices". The most popular one I have named the devil baby really is pretty freaky. I'll have to catch her on video at some point.

6) Going to my dad's this weekend to see the baby goats. We were supposed to go last weekend, but all the rain brought out mass hordes of mosquitoes, so we decided to try for this weekend instead. Of course, it looked like they got quite a bit of rain yesterday, so there may be a fresh batch of bloodsuckers out there by then.

7) Riley and I are flying out to Pensacola in less than a month and I can't wait. I haven't had more than a day or two off this year and I'm ready for a break. I'm definitely earning my keep at work.

8) Been hitting the gym on a regular basis again and it feels good. Of course, the first couple of weeks were a little rough, but now I'm looking forward to my gym time. I actually did 5 classes last week (Jody and RP took a nap Saturday after the lake and I sneaked over for a yoga class). Of course, tomorrow night is step class, so I might not be so cheery about the gym after that...I just have to keep remembering it burns about 500 calories per my Exerspy, so it's totally worth it :)

9) I swear there was something else I was going to write here. Hmmm. I don't know. Oh,maybe about the books I've been reading? Anyway, I'm reading the Songs of Fire and Ice series by George RR Martin and thoroughly enjoying them. Mom has since passed me and is already on book 3! I noticed she downloaded it last night, she must have stayed up late reading!

10) Funny things RP has said this week:
She's on my pink list! (She was mad at someone)
The banana squooshing incident, see above
I'm just a little bit tired (when in fact she's like the walking dead)
She is all about telling people her daddy is big and doesn't need a ladder.
Her name is "mama" and my name is Riley Paige. Daddy's name is Jody Mac and he is her favorite. So it begins ;)

Man, my kid is funny. She says some of the cutest, quirkiest things and I'm scared to death I'm going to forget them. So I'm going to attempt to put them all here...maybe someday I'll get around to scrapbooking all this ;)

Bambooms = band-aids

Skebby- Spaghetti

Hunky - not exactly sure the exact meaning, but it's an adjective. She used a port-a-potty at March for Babies this weekend (first time ever) and described it has "hunky" so I'm thinking it's nothing good. :)

The backyard is "Zoe's backyard" and the front yard is the "other backyard."

Rollers = Rollos

I'm super duper tired, so that will do for the first entry in Encyclopedia Riley.
