Make It Work

Those of you who are true fans of reality TV will recognize my title alluding to the all-too-fabulous show of the Bravo station. How about a big YAY HOO! for Project Runway starting tonight! Yes, it is great as I am watching it right now despite being totally tired and icky. Somehow flamboyant designers make me feel better. I love the "checking everybody out" stage of the first shows in the reality genre. Seriously, love it.

Speaking of work, my little ScrapFest has pretty much totally sold out. I am so excited! I talked to my friend Shawna who's helping with games, Barb who's brainstorming welcome pack ideas, and Chris who's the give-away guru this week and when I sat down tonight to enter all the info I got this week, I realized HOW booked we are. Now, mock if you must, but this scrapbook get-away is going to be the stinkin' BOMB (and I mean that in a really great way.) I was really hoping to get 60 people, which would double last year's numbers, and we're probably going to end up around 72 which is ULTIMATE capacity. (I'll know for sure by Friday.) But, we'll make it work!

Finally, I've been meaning to post about this since last week. Not that it's all new news to most of you, but Tyler and I went for our level 2 ultrasound last week. I guess making it work means we are going to have to figure how to live with a family of 3 boys. That's right, one of the blessings of early bleeding is extra ultrasounds AND one of the blessings of baby boys is a distinguished "phallus" even at 13 weeks. I am still hoping that at our 20 week ultrasound they'll tell us, "oops, there's a vagina," but I doubt it. The perinatologist said if it's a girl she'll have a penis. I'm all open-minded, but that might be a bit much. Tyler is totally stoked, which I am glad for, because I am making a list of all the things I won't be enjoying for the next 18 more years (hair bows, less wrestling, new furniture since boys use it like stairmasters and armored vehicles, pee in the toilet bowl instead of the floor, etc.) I was just looking for a change, whereas Tyler has long-term plans. He immediately said, "Yes. I have a foursome for golf and we'll just need two boats and two guides on fishing trips." And he said, "Just think, Babe, another Brock." I think I will REALLY enjoy the first year of sweetness of baby boys as it only gets crazy after that.

Here are some pics of the kids (thanks Uncle Nate!) when I was explaining the ultrasound pics to them. Mackenzie says, "Crap, that means more rough-housing." Caylee is still planning on a girl somehow, and Brevin was totally stoked. We even high-fived. I DO love being a mom! Make it work, right?!

wow. when I read your title I was impressed that you blogged that fast after the show. Good opening show. I am looking forward to this season. Congrats on the boy!! Now Gus will have a friend but whoever has the next baby will need to have a girl so that we can keep the numbers even.

Tyler said...

I will make sure to let your youngest son know you wanted him to be a girl!!!!:) We aren't that bad! All I know is, Kiersten is a doll now, but my fear is she is saving it all up for the 13-26 age range!!! At least boys are less emotional at that age. Not that I would trade my bubby girl in for a boy...just for the record...!

You know..I was always told that when you have a girl, you have to worry about all of the boys on the block...BUT, when you have a boy, you only have to worry about him!! Too bad I have 4 girls...LOL!!! Congrats on the boy!!! Hope you have been feeling better!

Leah and Dustin said...

Hooray for Project Runway. Do you love it or do you love it? I seriously heart Tim Gunn and am already eagerly anticipating next week . . .

Double hooray for scrap fest. Why do you have to have it in St. George? I mean really, next year how about Dallas baby?

And hip hip hooray for Baby Boy Barlow version 3.0 - super cool!
