Fancy seein' you around these parts....

I have no idea what happened, but apparently I fell off the blog-wagon…or did I get back on? I am not really sure how that saying works. Pump the breaks. I should really say that I am not the greatest with ANY sayings. I always mess them up and say them wrong. We’ll play it by year. 2014 to be exact.
Anyway, now that I just rambled for my first blog paragraph written in about 4 months I am sure you have realized how much you missed me. I don’t even know where to begin??! I feel like the last 4 months have been a complete blur with summer, vacations, chasing around KB, work, more work, work again, chasing around KB, summer… yeah. I am a little in shock that August is already approaching us because I feel like summer just started! School supplies are out, my hubs bought a case of Oktoberfest and we had a little cool streak here in Wisconsin that was not welcomed AT ALL. Well, at least not by me. There are some people out there that were happy about lows of 40 degrees in the middle of July. I call those people “crazy.”
I think the direction I am trying to go with this post is to update you on my life’s happenings the last few months…so here we go…
I will start with Kamden since he basically runs the show in my world. My little man will be turning TWO in September already!! Whaaaaaaat?! Where did the time go? I downloaded the app “Time Hop” and it’s pretty cool because it shows your status updates and pictures you posted on FB a year ago, 3 years ago and so on. Since I have posted a bazillion pictures of KB since the day he was born, the app has been updating me daily with pictures from last summer and I cannot believe the difference a year makes! Makes me happy and sad at the same time. He is just getting so big and talking SO much! He also…
.…loves fruit snacks and goes into the pantry every morning looking for them
….has NO patience at all. None. If he doesn’t have juice in his hand in 0.2 seconds flat of him saying “juice,” WATCH OUT!
….is obsessed with crawling around in the car
….loves to sing J
….loves the water and will say “bwada, bwada, bwada” all day long
….knows where his eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, hair, belly, toes, etc. are
….likes to poke my eyes out and pull on my eyelashes (still)
….thinks giving kisses means putting his cheek on someone else’s cheek
….dances A LOT - lots of pelvic thrusts
….likes saying “raaaaar!!”
….has to buckle or strap himself into everything and if you try to help he is will not be happy about it
….loves yogurt and applesauce
….loves drinking everyone else’s drink….especially if it’s bwada, bwada, bwada
….still watches Little Einsteins all.the.time.
….is OBSESSED with his toothbrush and toothpaste. For real. Throws a fit if he can’t have it on him at all times.

I could list a million things about that boy. Even though he has hit the “I’m gonna whine about everything” stage, he is still such a good boy. Every day is such a joy with him and so much fun. He makes us laugh constantly and his smile lights up my day and melts my heart at the same time. I love you buddy boy.
In other news, we went to the U.P of Michigan a couple weekends ago for our Heide family reunion.  I love the U.P. because of how beautiful it is. I should have taken more pictures of our scenery because it was just amazing. Definitely God’s country. We had such a good time seeing family we haven’t seen in years and even meeting some of them for the first time. We took a drive by the house my grandma grew up in, which was right on Lake Superior. So cool to see. We even had pasties (past-ees) at our reunion as true yoopers would.  If you don’t know what pasties are - google it. I am not talking about the ones you wear on your ta-tas. J Oh wait, you did 3 times that week. And if you don't eat it with ketchup you are seriously missing the boat.

We spent a weekend in Minocqua for the 4th of July the weekend before our U.P. trip and it was perfect! The weather was great, the company was great, food, drinks….all the essentials for a perfect 4th of July. I even got a work out in every day I was up there! The only part that was not so great was that KB ran a fever all day on the 4th. He just wasn’t himself and slept through most of the parade and then just chilled the rest of the day. His grand finale was projectile puking while I was holding him and talking to our entire family while we were waiting on our dinner. Yeah…he totally yacked all over our table. Good thing is that it was only a 24 hour bug and he was fine the next day. Such a trooper! 
On our way to Minocqua

Me+lake=best thing ever

Snuggling on the boat :)

Right before KB yacked all over everything :/
This summer has been jam-packed with family time, hanging out with friends, playing volleyball weekly….it’s no wonder why summers are seriously the best. I wish summers lasted all year round. You hear that Mother Nature, I said “I WISH SUMMERS LASTED ALL YEAR ROUND!!!!” But for real, this last winter was brutal and I am not ready for any sort of cold weather anytime soon.
In other news, I am loving being a Beachbody coach. I talk a lot about it on Facebook because it seriously is life-changing. The people that have joined my challenge groups are seriously rockstars and are hitting their goals every day. I am not going to lie, I get a little emotional thinking about it because these people are literally doing whatever it takes to reach their goals and I get to be there to cheer them on. So cool and so rewarding. I can’t get enough of it! 
Okay…I better cut myself off here. I keep thinking of more and more stuff to ramble on about, but I think you have probably had enough for today. Hopefully my return makes me a little less of a crappy blogger and will get me posting more than 1 time in 4 months…..
