My Review of Taylor Dark Boot Cut Jean

Originally submitted at Maurices

Taylor is our highest rise that gives you a little extra coverage around the waist and tummy. The fit is relaxed down through the hip, thigh and knee with a boot cut leg opening of 18". Imported.

Loved them!Too bad they're a weird fit!

Pros: Stylish

Cons: Weird fit

Was this an online or in store purchase?: in store

Do you have a maurices store in or near your town?: Yes

I LOVED these! Got them home and they fit fine in the waist but the hips and butt are SOOOO BAGGY that I'm not going to be able to keep them! :( So now it's a 45 mile drive back to the store to return them. I don't understand why they are made so big through the butt and hips.

1st day of school 2011

I cannot believe it's the first day of school already! Where did summer go! I'm being very emotional about summer being gone but I think it's because this summer was so hard on our family and I feel like all it was was lost time that I can't make up. Ryan took the kids to school because once again I didn't feel good. Big surprise! :( I'm trying to have faith that I can and will be healed but it's hard. Especially when all I want to do is be a om and wife. It's all I've ever wanted to do! So once again this morning I am feeling guilty. But enough about me! Here are some pics of my adorable kiddos! I can't believe they are so grown up! Makes me so sad! MaShayla is in 7th grade, Keaton is in 5th, and Kyler is in 2nd. Love my babies so so much! And yes! They will ALWAYS be my babies!! :)

MaShayla's 1st middle school volleyball game!

MaShayla played her first official volleyball game in Cokeville! It was so fun to watch!!! AND THEY WON!!!! :)


Kyler finally got to play soccer this year! He is having a blast!

I miss the days.....

I just have to get this off of my chest. I miss the days when I felt good. when I could be a mom. When I could take care of my family. I miss the days when I could get out of bed and not have to run to the bathroom or puke or try not to puke everyday. I miss the days when I could take the kids to their activities or appointments and not have to schedule around Ryan's work so he was there to help me in case I was having a really bad day and can't get out of bed. I miss the days when I was me! My kids are growing up so fast and I've missed out on a lot because of my health. I feel like all they are going to remember when they grow up is when they would ask if we could go do something and all they are going to remember is me saying "not today guys. I don't feel good." I'm so over this. I want to just feel good! I want to just be able to take care of my family. I want to scream "this isn't fair!" But I'm trying not to because so many others have been through so much more than me. It's affecting me. It's affecting my kids. It's affecting my marriage. I'm lost and don't know what to do or try anymore. All I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a mom and a wife and I can't even do that anymore. I sit and cry so much because I feel so guilty. I envy those moms who can go to all of their kids activities/appointments and not have to worry about if they are going to feel well enough to go. I get angry at the moms that complain about how much running around they have to do with their kids because I would give ANYTHING to be able to run my kids from place to place to place and not have to worry about if I have my meds or a puke bag or where the bathroom is or did I pack a snack in case I get lightheaded. I envy my sisters for everything they do with/for their kids and their families. My kids would be so much better off with a different mom. Sometimes I think I shouldn't have had kids because they deserve so much more than I have given them. They're such good kids and deserve so much more than me. Mu husband deserves so much more than me. I'm tired and I'm sick of fighting for everyday. I guess if I had answers as to why I am still sick it would be better because then at least I would know what I was facing. Right now I don't know what I am facing. Everything is unknown.

My Review of Sequin "Love" Baseball Tee

Originally submitted at Maurices

This cute baseball tee from our new active wear line is comfy with a bit of glam. The allover sequins is girlie and fun while the shape of the tee is a great fit on everyone. Wear with your favorite jeans or comfy pants. Imported.

Wanted to LOVE it but not a HOMERUN

I wanted to love this but he way the sequins is put on is very cheap. I wore it once and A LOT of it fell off! I don't dare wear it or wash it again! I'm afraid it will all fall off!

Den Leader

Tuesday night I got a call from the man who schedules the bishop's appointments asking me if I could come in for an interview Wednesday night. Of course I was hesitant! We all know what that means when the bishop wants to meet with you! But I said yes and Wed. night I had an appointment. I kept racking my brain trying to figure out what they may be calling me to help with. None of them I could think of sounded very appealing! lol Wednesday I got to meet up with a very dear friend, Jen, whom I haven't seen for almost 3 years. She told me that she had been called as den leader and that the scouts were meeting at her house that afternoon and that's when it hit me! CRAP! I'm going to be called as den leader! I started thinking right then how I could tell them no! lol Now some of you might be thinking right now how rude I am being but if anyone really knows me they now why I thought this. I DO NOT do well in public! Going out into public makes me literally have anxiety attacks and sick! I hate it! So I went to my interview and sure enough that's what they called me to help with. I hesitantly said yes because I know with callings come blessings and at this point I was going on faith! I came home and sat in the chair and literally bawled for a like an hour! I know nothing about scouts! I feel very insignificant for this calling and don't feel like the boys are going to benefit from my being there at all! But again, I'm trying to go on faith here! So that's where I am for now! Operating on faith and hoping that Heavenly Father will answer my prayers with some other things that have been going on lately! I am welcome to any help or tips you can give me for scouts!

St. Patrick's Day!

We had a lot of fun on St. Patrick's day this year! We're not Irish and have never done much for the day but I decided this year to change it up a little! I bought the kids all a St. Patrick's Day shirt (except for Keaton because they didn't have any in his size so he got a green tap out shirt) and I eve got a shirt for my self! :) We also had corned beef and cabbage for the first time EVER! Everyone really liked the corned beef but the boys weren't a big fan of the cabbage! We then finished up the day with some March Madness! ;)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's a few pics from Valentine's day!
