Last minute trip to Utah and my nerdy husband.....

I ended up going to Utah this last week at the last minute. One of my best friends moved to Utah from Hawaii and had her car shipped to Cali and I ended up driving it to Utah then flying home. Thank goodness Kady came with me! What a saint! The car ride was a little crazy but not too bad considering we had 3 kids under the age of 2 plus Cal. Jono kept himself busy with some serious guy time and I made sure to make fun of him for all of it. Kalia had so much fun with her grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousin.

She loved the piano and when she played it almost sounded like music as opposed to angry banging. My brother Scott took these two pictures, too cute.

My cute friend Amanda, she is so fun I wish she would live here but Utah is at least closer than Hawaii. Super lame, she has a 10 month old little girl who loved Kalia and Kalia loved her but sorry no pics because we are lame.

When I get home our DVR if filled up with crap and one of the shows is "the bachelorette" sorry to those of you that love this show but it is a little bit on the lame side for me. Jono tells me " I can't believe that I haven't been watching this show." He says he wants to watch it with me but he needs my undivded attention so that he can give me the details on the people. I tried to give the show a chance, I figured that if Jono was that excited about it that maybe this was another TV gem that I have been missing out on. No, it's lame, sorry to anyone who loves it. I got up once to get the phone and then to do the dishes and he started getting a little bit bugged with me, tells me, "oh another interuption." The whole time we are watching he is making comments like "man one of these guys is really going to get his heart broken", "that's not her style she is a traditional southern girl". He recounted over and over that he can't believe that he didn't watch all seaon. Jono likes cheesy stuff sometimes, but this is ridiculous. I am chalking it up to the fact that we are in the summer time and TV has dried up and that he hasn't quite recovered from the strike this season. Hopefully this fall and or January (when shows are starting to come back) he will be back to his "normal" crap shows but at least with some standards.

I have sugar issues……

I was debating what to write about for my next blog. I always feel like I need a picture so I was going to take a picture of some cupcakes that I made for a shower. I made way too many and they did not turn out how I envisioned them (story of my life). To make matters worse I piled them up on top of each other and there was frosting everywhere, they did not look good. And to be honest they did not taste that good, even though the mix was from the box?? Anyway, ,they did not look good and I didn’t care because I figured that it would help me not to eat them. Not the case. I still ate plenty of mediocre cupcakes. I wish I had a picture but let’s just say I offered them to someone who eats whatever you put in front of them and they passed. But I am chalking that up to the fact that there were remnants of 3 day old “├ęclair cake” left in with the cupcakes which made it especially gross. By the way the ├ęclair cake was one of the best desserts I have ever had. I could never make it though because it would be my breakfast lunch and dinner until either A) the pan was gone or B) I was too sick to move. Anyway, getting back on track, where is the picture. I looked for my camera for 2 seconds and couldn’t find it and it finally got too gross for even me, I threw about 8 or so cupcakes away. If it wasn’t for calories and the occasional stomach rot I could eat cookies for breakfast, chocolate cake for lunch and Moose Tracks for dinner.

PS I also was lucky enough to have another visit from Britney who was surprised with airline tickets from her husband Cameron to go to Cali for her b-day. I was going to put all the cute stuff her husband did to tell her about the trip but I don't want wives to get mad at their hubsands for not doing cute and thoughtful stuff like that anymore. We had a really good time and Kalia is obsessed with Dylan. She followed him around and said everything he said and did everything that he did. She has even been calling her binky a "sassy" then giving a sly smile afterwards. Sassy is of course what Dylan calls it, too cute.
