My style has grown up

For as long as I can remember I hated the color brown and any form of it. Not until I got married and relized the awesomeness of the color.

Todd and went searching for a new couch that would be easy to clean an comfy to sit on. Our old couch was free so we never complained but we've had it for 3 years and it was not suiting us anymore. We looked forever for the right one and finally found the one I wanted. I guess ya'll can see our other little toy in the middle picture. We are slowly upgrading to furniture that we can be proud of. Look how grown up I am now!!

Next stop in our home improvments the bathroom!!! Maybe next month!!

When I grow Up...

I wanna be just like Daddy!!!

I feel like an adult!!

Ever since I've been married I have never lived in the same place for more than a year. I wanted to but either I hated the apartment or the rent got to expensive. Well, I just signed the lease for the place we are at now for another year. We moved here in April but we were finishing someone elses lease. With the rent being only 650 we were excited that it had a lot of amenities that our other ones have not. For example we have a dishwasher, washer/dryer hook-ups, and we only pay for power and gas. The major downfall was giving up our cats. I still cry about that.
Since we signed the lease for another year I decided it was time to make this apartment my home. I'm now saving money each week to do a little redecorating. Last week after we rearranged the bedroom I went to K-Mart and got a spectacular deal on new bedding for our big bed. I was super proud of myself.
I'm now saving up to redo the bathroom. I found the cutest Spongebob Bathroom decor and I decided that I'm going to do the bathroom that way. Mostly for Kayl cause he loves Spongebob.
I'm also in the process of searching for a new couch, I found a fantastic one at R.C. Willey. It is on sale and everything but I don't think I'll have enough saved up in time to buy it so I'm searching Craigslist and KSL as well. This is the one I saw at R.C. Willey and fell in love with. Wish I had the 750 to get it!!

I'm also on the prowl for a new vacuum cause mine is dying a very slow death. K-Mart had some awesome deals so I may go back for the one there.
I've discovered that K-Mart has awesome deals on everything.
If anyone has a couch that they don't need anymore let me know cause we need a newer one then the one we have. My mother-in law gave us the one we use now and it was really meant for a formal living room so it is not very comfy nor is it stain resistant. Kayl loves to smear crap all over it. I'm also looking for a decent shoe rack and a DVD cabinet that I can close and lock. Kayl's new favorite activity is grabbing a DVD and opening it to play with the disc. I'm slowly going to make this apartment mine.
Todd and I went to Wal-Mart and bought a bunch of picture frames and printed out a ton of pictures. Now our house is a museum of pictures from our life so far. I love walking in the house and seeing pictures of us, Kayl, and our cats. I want to get some more pictures up so if anyone has pictures of you with either me, Todd, or Kayl please send them to me and I'll frame them and put them up on the wall.

Thank you everyone for reading my blog!!

Room Rearrange

Since Kayl got sick I was keeping him in our room during the day and at night. Our bed was way to high and he is such a wiggle worm that I was scared that he would fall off. So at like midnight last night Todd and I decided to rearrange our bedroom. We took the entire bedframe out and now we sleep on the mattress closer to the floor. Kayl was so excited for this new setup cause mommy and daddy can now run and job on the bed while he is on it. It is one of his favorite games. He likes cause he can watch Disney movies better now. I like cause it is easier to just fall into bed.

Sick with what!?!

Kayl has been so sick lately. It was such a sudden onset and I was terrified. His fever shot to 106 and it never went down past 101. He was throwing up and was just so miserable. I didn't know what to do. Then I was on Facebook and I was reading my sisters status and it said that my brother had the swine flu. I got super scared cause she was at my house the day before he got sick and was holding him and playing with him. I rushed him over to the Instacare. They ran a strep test first cause his tinsils were huge. It came back negative so they did the Swine Flu test and that one was negative so they said he probably just has a virus so they sent us home and told us to give him plenty of fluids and switch of Tylenol and Motrin every 2 hours. I did that.
Then this morning I woke up to the scariest sight you'll ever see.

I freaked out and burst into tears. I thought "Oh crap my baby is dying" I called the Instacare and talked to the same doctor that saw him yesterday. I told her his new symptoms and she said that it is Roseola Also called baby measles. This is a nonserious but common childhood viral infection that starts with a high fever and swollen lymph glands. After 24 hours, the fever breaks and the child develops a red rash on the neck and trunk.
She said that it would go away but it may come back often. It was just terrifing. At least I know what it so I won't freak out next time.

Ode to a pair of Flip-Flops

Oh my Flip Flops,
How I loved thee
You started out pink and new
As the years went on you became old and faded
People told me to throw you away
I said Nay!!

I loved the way you felt on my feet
The way you let the snow in in winter
The heat in summer

I may have worn other shoes
But I swear it was just for work
I may have looked for new Flip Flops
But I always came back to you

Then why? My Flip Flops
Did you break today?
After all these years and all the accidents I had
You break on a day where I did nothing at all

I'll miss you my loves
I don't know how to replace you
No one sells your brand anywhere
What will I do with out you?

Oh my Flip Flops
How I loved Thee!!
So, I'll try to fix you with super glue
But I doubt that will work
So, I bid you fond farwell!!

I know it is a picture of Kayl but it is the best one I had of my Flip Flops

So, our Internet signal went out for about two weeks again. Not much has been going on in the Tangreen home. I got my hours massivly cut back at work and was really upset with that. They should go back up in the fall but for now I'm looking for a second job because one shift a week just doesn't help. Kayl is getting smarter everyday. The other day he found an empty box dragged it over to the TV and stood on it so he could get the remote. He was also taking a bath and I was sitting on the toilet just watching him when all of a sudden he crawled out of the bathtub walked over to me, tried to open his potty. I told him no because I thought he just wanted to play with it. He looked straight at me and peed on the rug in front of me. I guess he just wants to potty train himself. Thankfully Todd's job is way busy right now. He usually has to work 6 days a week so that kind of sucks but it is good money. Well, that's it for now.

Does anyone have a scanner I could borrow for a day or two? I really need to scan all of my old pictures to my computer!! Thanks!!
