Ramblings...

(Found this gem of a picture on my mom's computer. ha. It looks exactly like a picture I have from high school, before prom. Except for a different hair color and boy of course. Classic.)

Hi again.

So it's been a while.

What to write about?

mmmmmm.....

So Travis has been gone for work (in vegas. psh) for almost a week now, it's odd to have your spouse gone for that long (at least for a needy person like me). I find that it has its highs & lows....


Highs:
Reading the Twlight series............again. Why? I'm not sure. It fills the "travis void" somehow. Cheesy love stories are ALWAYS better late at night & alone. With Travis gone I can read to my hearts content. :) (I know MANY of you are out there rolling your eyes right now. haha)

Coming up to my parents house which is gloriously decked-out in christmas decorations.

Avoiding awkward neighbors. ha. Enough said on this one.


Lows:

Having to sleep with the christmas tree on in my room because I freak myself out with Travis gone (too much reading about vampires????). This equals no sleep, which equals tired cranky becca most of the time.

Dealing with Bryant ALL DAY LONG. I've come to depend on the 2 hours that Travis spends with Bryant before the little man's bedtime.

Locking my keys in my trunk with all of Bryant's stuff. Having to wait for someone to come and open my car back up...........and charge $65. Travis had the spare key...in Vegas. Kill me now.

Hearing that my sister's husband is doing the 12 days of christmas for her........again. What the?! Travis isn't even here, let alone doing the 12 days of christmas for me. Whatever Natalie, you suck. :)

THERE you have it.

My life has been pretty dull as of late. I'm thinking about buying a plane ticket for somewhere random in the next few months. San Francisco? London? New York? That is if I find money growing on a tree somewhere. haha. It sucks being poor.

Ok The end.


To Travis:
Love you.

The thing about anxiety....

I am an anxious person.

I worry a lot.

I get fixated sometimes on a particular "worry."

My worry lately is taking Bryant on a 4 hr plane ride to Tennessee for Christmas.

I seriously had a nightmare last night that he screamed the ENTIRE time, then pooped, then slapped the person next to me. I woke up a little depressed.

So I'm asking all of you parents out there if you could give me any tips on how to make the plane ride a little bit easier for us. :)

Thanks to you all! The anxiety in me is starting to blow this way out of proportion so soothing comments will be much appreciated!!!!!!


Oh and Travis claims that he is going to do a "thanksgiving post" today. We'll see if that actually happens :)

Hulu I love you......


(Yes random weird funny picture that has nothing to do with my post.)


I may have just watched 2 hours of Glee, Grey's anatomy and Late night with Jimmy Fallon instead of doing anything productive (while giggling uncontrollably to myself) . I LOVE when my son takes long naps.


I feel much better about life right about now.


I think you should all follow my example and do the same.


Ps. Favorite quote from Glee ever, "I have to go they'll think I'm pooping." Did anyone else laugh at this? Hella funny. Yes I said "Hella." I'm cool.


Pss. Yes I have Glee music on my blog now. I'm a little obsessed.

Friday, November 6, 2009

Because I'm bored.....


Yes another Bryant post with too many pictures :)

"Standing" pics as promised.





(He's obviously not standing in this one. ha. I just thought it was cute. Dad & baby cuddling.)






(found this pic from "witches night out" and it made me giggle. What were we doing katie?) ha.

The End.

Crikey!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(Crazy eyes for me) Doesn't Bry make a cute Crocodile? haha

Steve & Terry Irwin & Croc. :) Yes Travis with way too much thigh showing. This pic is so awkward. haha.

Sexy white legs. oh yeah.


video

Short video of Bryant :)

My favorite part of the night?

Bryant crawling in a circle trying to get his own tail. HILARIOUS.


(I'm STILL going to post pics of the zoo & Bry standing up SOON.)

Bubba Monster..........


aka Bryant, Bry Guy, Monkey.

So I haven't blogged in a long time.


Why? Because my sister Nat has my camera case with everything I need to download my pics.

And who wants to read a blog post without pictures?

No one.


So this post is for me. I want to remember what my little man was like at "almost" 9 months.

Bryant things that melt my heart:


Seeing him standing in his crib staring at the door when I walk in his room in the morning.

The sound of him sucking in air because he is so excited to see me.

The sound of mama, dada, bubba, and nana.

How he follows me to & from every room with his "speed crawl."

The look on his face of pure excitement when he spots a dog.

His irrational love for a toothbrush.

The constant giggles when I read stories to him.

How he immediately stops what he is doing when he hears the sound of water running & begins crawling to the bathtub.

Bath=happiness.

His fetish for his dad's shoes.

How he lays his head down on me and snuggles in when he is watching baby Einstein.

The fear he has of men with deep voices. haha.

How he sleeps 12 hrs at night.

The sight of him standing up holding on to the the side of our bed peeking up at me with his "smile eyes"

His little legs swinging back and forth like crazy in the grocery cart & stroller.

How he puts blankets and pillows over his face until we say "where's the baby??" and then the sight of him tossing them off and giggling. Cutest. thing. ever.

I love my family :)


PS. Pictures of Bryant's first trip to the zoo coming up.......

Mush....

Do you ever feel like your brain has gone to mush? Yeah me too. Is that even a word? Mush? I guess changing diapers, singing "5 little speckled frogs" and chasing around a very quick little man-child isn't all that intellectually stimulating. I need to find a new hobby.

I guess I'm reading the new Dan brown book. Does that count?

Ps. Is anyone as excited for Halloween as I am? Yeah we already have matching Halloween costumes for the whole fam..............with no where to go. We're cool that way.

Oh and what's with red box not having "My life in Ruins?"

Oh and do you know what sucks about buying an overpriced anthropologie blouse online?......

Having to send it back because it makes me look like a bag lady.

If a blouse costs that much money don't you think it should be lined and not completely sheer? Come on Anthro. I think I might have changed my opinion about you just a little. Grrr.

Ok long obnoxious hate rant over.

Facts about us.......

So a friend and fellow (better) blogger Andrea did this on her blog and I am SO BORED tonight that I decided I would kill some time and fill it out too. Enjoy learning pointless facts about us ;)

What are your middle names?

Rebecca ANNETTE & Travis SCOTT

How long have you been together?

Travis says, "Since September 22, 2006." The day of our first kiss (yes it was BEFORE our first real date). Apparently he was smitten since that day. haha.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?

We knew each other for about 1 1/2 years before we dated. Travis tried to date my twin sister. (haha funny story). I dated his friend Austin. The stars finally aligned and here we are.

Who asked who out?

Travis asked my cousin Nic if it would be a "weird situation" to try and date me (because of the above mentioned situation). She told him "yes it would be VERY WEIRD" which is normal girl code haha. I found out about it later that day and felt unexpected excitement. I made it very easy for him to kiss me. ha. Then he asked me out that same week.

(wow that was long).

Who made the first move?

Definitely Travis.

How old are each of you?

I'm 24. He's 26.

Did you go to the same school?

Yep yep. BYU!

Are you from the same home town?

Nope. I'm from Hooper, Ut. He's from Knoxville, TN.

Who is the smartest?

Travis thinks he is, which is ABSURD. :) I think I'm smarter at school things, he's smarter at real life things.

Who majored in what?

I majored in Nursing. Travis majored in International Relations. Good times.

Who is the most sensitive?

TRAVIS. Travis. Travis. Unless I'm pregnant. I apparently turn into a crazy emotional mess.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

mmmmmm probably taco time. I can't get enough crisp bean burritos. Delightful.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

Good old Tennessee.

Who has the worst temper?

We are about even on this one. We can both get pretty frustrated, but we both deal with it by getting silent. haha.

How many children do you want?

I'm done as of right now. I can't imagine doing that all again. :) Travis wants 2 or 3....He's gonna have to bribe me to get more.

Who does the cooking?

MMMMmmmmm I don't really like to cook, neither does travis so we both usually do our own lunch and then snack at night. People think we are weird for not always eating dinner, but it works for us. When we do cook Travis does the meat and I do the sides. We are pretty even on this one. I warned him before we got married that I wasn't the type to have the dinner on the table by 5. :)

Who is more social?

Definitely Travis. I would rather snuggle up on the couch and read a book then go do something social. I'm a hater. ha.

Who is the neat-freak?

Probably Travis. I like things clean, but he has to have the apartment perfectly organized every night. I'm getting used to it. ha.

Who is the most stubborn?

Travis says I am. I think he is. :)

Who wakes up earlier?

We wake up about the same time. Around 7 am. I would sleep into 11 am every day if Bry didn't wake up that early. I LOVE to sleep in. I miss it.

Where was your first date?

Park City. We went to dinner and the rocky mountain chocolate factory for carmel apples. Travis suprised me and brought a camp stove and cooked hot chocolate out of the back of his jeep. It was romantical.

Who has the bigger family?

We have the same family size. cool. This is getting boring now cause i'm watching "shark tank" and can't focus on the questions. haha.

Do you get flowers often?

I LOVE flowers. If we ever have money I think it would be awesome to have fresh flowers in my house all the time. Travis gets me flowers probably every couple of months.

How do you spend the holidays?

Usually with my fam cause his is in Tennessee. This year we are going to TN for Christmas though. Travis is super duper excited :)

Who is more jealous?

Neither?

How long did it take to get serious?

Probably 2 mths. Travis brought up marriage. I freaked out and told him I couldn't talk about it for a few more months. It was fast but it had felt right since that first date. It was meant to be.

Who eats more?

Travis!!!!

What do you do for a living?

Travis works for Novell running online trainings. I stay home and chase Bryant around all day. It's cool. :)

Who does/did the laundry?

Mostly me, Travis will help me fold though. Folding sucks!

Who’s better with the computer?

haha definitely Travis. It's laughable how bad I am at things sometimes.

Who drives when you are together?

Usually Travis, unless we are going up a canyon, then I drive. Canyons equal raging car sickness for me.

What is "your" song?

We don't really have one. We did listen and go to palomino concerts a lot though. So yeah. haha.


yep that was painful. I'm going to go look up more clothes on j crew's website now. :)

I want this.....


Does anyone else love this Anthropology skirt as much as I do? Too bad it's $160.

Yes I have a new clothes obsession lately. :)

Yes I'm blogging during church.....

Soooooo after having a delightful day outdoors in Park City yesterday, the last thing I wanted to do was sit in church for 3 hrs today. Good thing Bry can be my excuse to leave sometimes. haha.

Things I love:

I love Park City. I've decided I want to live there.

I love walking main street.

I love getting carmel apples at the "village candy shop"

I love the beautiful fall leaves.

I love girl days and shopping.

I love going out to eat TWICE in one day. blissful.

Thanks MOM for clearing your crazy schedule to spend time with your daughters!!

Ps. I have also decided that I Love TULLE brand coats. I want one.



Too bad that BOTH of these are sold out. My luck :)

Crawling..............

( Sorry the pics are crap. Trav's camera SUCKS. :)




Bry is crawling! Crazy.

Things that he has learned since crawling:

There is a guitar in the room that makes sounds when you touch it, but the only time to go after the guitar is when mom & dad are not paying attention. Then crawl like a mad man to get it. (irritating).



There is a shiny piece of metal on the front door that shows a reflection. It's the best thing in the whole world to crawl over and look at the baby staring back for 10 minutes.
(funny. hits his head into the door trying to get to "the baby". ummmm yeah).



Discovery of the book basket. It's pretty sweet to get all the books out one by one and then suck, chew (he finally got a tooth) and drool on them. Oh and then getting stuck under the table. Awesome.



It is possible to know where mom & dad are at all times. Just follow them from room to room.
(very weird to walk into the kitchen, turn around and see him coming after me.)

(no pic of this one. haha. bummer dude).

I love my little MONSTER. :)


Well off to go drink a Vanilla coke zero. Yes I have a caffeine headache and it's 10:00 AM. :)

Crap-tastic............

So I had a chat with Travis and we came to a compromise. I keep the blog if he posts more. So expect to see posts from the Travster coming up........;)

PLUS I had to post because something hilarious happened this morning.....

So Travis & I went and bought a high chair yesterday. I made Travis feed Bryant his cereal and fruit this morning in the spiffy new high chair, but while doing so we looked down and spotted THIS.......





Yes my friends. That's CRAP i.e. feces, poop, log, turd. Travis IMMEDIATELY started dry heaving (such a girlie man), Bry smiled at Trav's ridiculous dry heaving, and I started hysterically laughing while shooting some pics.

The laughter stopped, however, when we realized the fabric on the cheap piece of crap (ha) high chair doesn't come off for washing.

GOOD TIMES.

I have a heart ache.....


I have a heart ache................but instead of talking about how MUCH I miss my friend Marci who just moved to San Francisco and ranting about how sick I am of my tiny two bedroom apartment and how badly I want to move, I am going to post some pictures (a LOT of pics. fair warning). I hope that it helps me feel more grateful for my life. We had an hour to kill before the Bry Guy's bedtime..........so we had a little photoshoot.

Cute Dad. Cute Baby. I feel better already.

Chocolate shake anyone? Bry wanted some BAD.

Makes me smile just to look at this. Doesn't this make everyone want to go "reproduce" :) and make something this cute? ha.

Pretty blue eyes.

Love it when he finds me in the car and looks up with those blue eyes. My heart feels a little better now.

mmmmmm fingers

Posing on the porch

You can almost just hear him say "hi dad!"

Please leave some love. I would absolutely L o v e to hear from anyone who still reads my bloggy blog. I am deciding whether to keep doing it or leave it in the dust.

(I sounded pretty pathetic just then ha)

Do I have more witty stories to right? More pictures to post? I just don't know my friends.


Thursday, August 13, 2009

Oh Hello again. Hello. Do you like my hat?






Ummm yeah. I've been a bad bad blogger lately.

I've been busy:

Reading Go Dog Go. Obviously.

Giggling in St. George with some totally rad (yes rad) and totally fun-tastic friends before they move to California. (tears).

Attending weddings and thinking of my own wedding. sigh.

Having a week of "acting like we are dating again" with Travis. Do you remember how you acted before you were married? It's hard to make the effort be nice, fun, witty, care-free (haha), but I think everyone who is married should try and make a goal to do the "things" you were doing when your spouse fell "in love" with you. (advice from a wedding I attended). Seriously it has been such an awesome week because of the effort both Travis and I have been put into treating each other better. :) (wow that was long. sorry.)

Looking at blessing outfit pictures of Bryant that my amazing friend Tiff just gave me (above). So cute. I can't believe that little guy is mine sometimes. Trippy.

Trying my own hand at photography with my dad's ridiculously expensive cameras. Getting the right light is a Bitch my friends. (sorry mom) haha.

And
of course blog stalking. Feeding, changing, entertaining, falling even more in love with my Bry guy.

The End.

Shoes shoes shoes...............

It's amazing how fast Birthday money can be spent when you have a shoe buying "problem"

Check out these delicious buys. I feel sassy not going to lie.


Oh Me. Oh my. Sexy Shoes.

Who can resist a pair of boots at Nordstrom's anniversary sale? wahooooo.


Ps. On another seriously superficial note. I have decided that O.P.I makes a color of nail polish called "dutch tulips" that might be my favorite color of all time. Go and buy it if you want to feel extra extra sassy and "summer-y" haha. The end.

Friday, July 17, 2009

It's about freaking time...........

I finally fit into all of my old shorts and jeans. Does this mean that I am psyched out of my mind? Hell yes it does. Even if I do have a slight "muffin top" and the button of one of my shorts suddenly popped off and flew across the room.

Life is looking up my friends.


Ps. Bry is now rolling around the room to get things instead of learning how to crawl. Crawling is for sissies anyway right?

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Bryant 5 months old................

So I couldn't resist putting up some pics of
Bryant.................again. I love my little man.

Priceless look haha. A little camera shy in this one?

Had to get another naked shot. So chubby. Look at those fat rolls. Sweet.

This is what happens when Baby Einstein gets paused. What's going on Mom? Keep playing it!!!!!! (He doesn't watch it THAT often don't worry).

Happy boy!

Cute smile don't you think?

Giggles.

Blue Steal...........


THE END.

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Perfect Storm..........

I think yesterday was the perfect storm for disaster. Want to know why?

1. Travis leaves early for a reception.

2. I am REALLY bad with direction.

3. I ran around like a crazy person all day.

4. I'm really excited about wearing a new really ridiculously expensive dress I bought with my birthday money (so therefore things are bound to go wrong).

5. Did I mention I'm really bad at direction?

6. Travis's cell phone dies before I can make it to the reception.

7. I forgot the address of the reception at home. That might have been important?

The Perfect Storm:
Drove around for an hour last night looking for said reception. Didn't find it. Eventually drove home and may or may not have cried in my closet out of frustration & pure hatred for my sucky sense of direction. (I really don't cry as much as you may think.:)

BUT THEN:
Travis got home. We decided to pick up some yummy frozen yogurt and rent twilight (so we could mock it profusely. let out that anger. yeah!) to calm my frazzled soul.

Turned out to be a fun night. Even if I couldn't wear my new dress & red lipstick :)

Friday, June 26, 2009

Becca's list............

So I have decided to make a list of random things about me because I'm bored and I need to get my mind off this never ending day............................enjoy :)

I'm a sucker for love stories. I think I have probably seen every movie out there with a love story in it. It makes me treat Travis better because I get all happy & content. :)

I hate grocery shopping. I hate the lines, annoying people, spending money on food & florescent lighting (makes EVERYONE look bad).

I have a MAJOR desire to travel through Europe. This would have been more fun (to the 13 yr old girl who still lives inside me) when I was single because I WOULD have undoubtedly found a hot young European man and had a fling (such as in "what a girl wants"). haha. But I would definitely love going to Venice with Travis. :)

I have an obsession with photography even though I'm not a photographer (yet). I love looking at creative ways to capture people's emotion. I look at photography blogs every day.

I was the ugly duckling all growing up. I only got cute around my senior year of high school. Seriously. It was weird/awesome to get to BYU and have people think I was attractive.

I have an overwhelming phobia of public speaking. The thought of it makes me nauseous. Maybe that's why I connect with Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries so much?

I read the beautiful letters Travis wrote me when we were dating when I get sad or pensive. They make me remember how much I love him in the times when I just want to pick a fight. :)

I love the smell of books and coffee. So sometimes I go to Barnes & Noble or Borders and just walk around and look at books. It's so relaxing!

I don't like when people try to be sooooo "trendy" or "different" because I feel like they just end up looking silly.

I LOVE getting into books so much that I read until morning. Books are food for my soul. Seriously.

I will ALWAYS have high expectations for Travis to be romantic on special occasions. I don't view this as a bad thing. I would rather be up front about expecting something then be frustrated towards him later that he didn't make any effort.

So there was this one time when I didn't eat sugar, soda, or even butter on my toast for 2 years. I look back and wonder why I did that. I didn't become any more skinny. I didn't get better skin. I still craved those things every. single. day. Everything in moderation is the best I think.

I kind of have an obsession of looking at someone in a movie and then listing off every other movie they have been in. It seriously bothers me until I have thought of all the movies I can remember. Does that sound a little OCDish? MMMMMMMMmmmmmm.

I still love ovaltine. In fact I'm drinking some right now.

I still think Nursing school was harder than being a mom.

I'm obsessed with reality tv shows. I can't help myself. The Bachelorette and SYTYCD are my favs. In fact I told Travis we should take a latin ballroom or contemporary dance class together. He didn't go for it.

I love spagettios and mac & cheese far too much for a 24 yr old.

I want to feel cool, beautiful, smart, witty, sexy, kind, gracious, AWESOME again. It seems like those things just slip away when you get older and tired. I want to find a way to feel that way FOREVER.

Well Bryant is crying so that is my list for now.........................................................


Sorry about my grammar/spelling. I'm too tired to go back and read everything over!

Ps. I saw the Proposal last night. So funny. Go see it if you haven't yet. Definitely worth paying the money for.

Mondays suck........

(Birthday lunch at Spark Lounge)

After a long weekend of celebrating my birthday with presents, money, lagoon, yummy food, potting flowers AND spending time with family for FATHER'S DAY.................Monday is looking a little bleak this morning.

Good thing I have a girl night for Thursday planned. If anyone wants to join me for a night out on the town in SLC with my hilarious and oh so fun sister-in-laws, NAT, and MOM. Give me a holler. Dinner and a movie, but who knows what the night may hold? PARTY.
