Just rambling…

January 13, 2009 by  

Here we are, another cold day in Kansas City.  I think it is a whopping 7 degrees outside right now.  At least it is clear and sunny, that’s the silver lining there.  Now that we have officially had 3 weeks of winter, I am ready for spring.  No more cold morning or windy afternoons. No more snow and ice, just warm sunshine please.  I guess I’d have to move somewhere other than the midwest for warm sunshine in January…maybe someday.  Till then I’ll deal with the weather here.
Braelyn turned one last Friday.  I can’t believe my precious little princess is 1, it seems like yesterday (I know that is overally used but, its true) that she came into this world and we were bringing her home from the hospital.  I’m enjoying every minute with her, because they grow up way too fast.  Spencer will be 16 this year, and I swear I don’t know where the time has gone.
We have another busy weekend ahead of us.  Ryan is having a poker and UFC Fight party at the house on Saturday night.  I’m going out with the girls to celebrate Stephanie’s birthday.  Sunday is Cayse’s birthday party.  Today he turns 6 – Happy Birthday Cayse!
Will we ever have a weekend where we get do nothing and just enjoy being at home…I hope so!  I don’t think we have any plans the next weekend!
Well enough rambling…I really didn’t have much to say!

Snow…YUK!

December 9, 2008 by  

I am not a fan of the snow.  I have been running around to client meetings all day and have decided that I don’t like snow.  I don’t mind it when I don’t have to get out in it, and I can just watch it come down.
Here we are two weeks away from Christmas and I don’t have any of my shopping done.  I am planning on knocking it out this weekend.  So, get your lists to me now if you want anything…just kidding, but I do need ideas!

Brae will be a year old in a month.  I have already started looking at invitations and cake ideas.  Planning birthday parties for little Brae will be so much fun.  Spencer’s parties were fun too, but boys are easy.  It’s the girls that pay attention to detail, okay well maybe just the mom’s. 

Well…need to run, just wanted to mention that I hate snow and that my Christmas shopping was not done.

GO MU!

November 30, 2008 by  

It’s snowing outside.  Our first snow of the year, althoug it’s not sticking, not quite cold enough for that yet.  Ryan is at the Murphy’s taking pics of the kids for a Christmas card.  Braelyn is crawling on Hoover trying to get to the table in the living room…oh wait, he moved.  Braelyn has reached the table and is now opening the drawers. I am watching the MU – KU game.  GO MIZZOU!  MU just scored, are down 10-7 with 11 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.  I want MU to stomp KU again.  I realize that I live in Kansas, and just 40 minutes from Lawrence, but I grew up in Missouri – I’m loyal.

Ryan and I are going to dinner and a movie with Gabe and Stephanie tonight.  We are going to meet them for a movie, “Four Christmases” and then to Capital Grille for dinner.  I am craving some cocunut cream pie, but I won’t eat it.  Ryan don’t let me! 

This will be another short week for work.  I leave on Thursday morning at 6 am for Naples, FL with Stephanie and four other friends for a girls weekend.  I can’t wait.  Four days setting at the pool and hanging out at the beach.  Can’t wait…I need the break.  My friend Holly is coming over on Thursday night to help Ryan with Braelyn and then Ryan will take Brae to mom and dad’s on Friday afternoon and will pick her up sometime on Sunday.  Spencer will be at his dad’s next weekend.  Ryan will have a nice quiet weekend at home with Hoover and Sophie.

MU just sacked KU’s quarterback.  Too bad he got up, not that I want him hurt too bad, just out for the game.  Braelyn is tearing up what was my Pottery Barn catalog.  I guess that is one way to keep me from buying something. 

Spencer has spent the weekend with his dad. He’s been over there since Wednesday, I miss him.  I know Brae misses him too, she crawls around babbling Bub, Bub, Bub.  Ryan misses his Guitar Hero partner too.

Miss Brae is tired, I think its time for a nap and she’s eating paper…nice!

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!

Almost, not quite, but almost

November 3, 2008 by  

Braelyn Grace Elledge, Brae, Brae-Brae, BGE…our almost 10 month old who is now pulling herself up, crawling everywhere, loves to shut and open any kind of drawer, cabinet and door has made several huge milestones in the last month.  She will be taking her first step by the first of December, or so I think.  Where does the time go.  I remember last time this year we were preparing for her arrival.  Crazy how time flies.  One other thing that she has almost mastered is the word da-da.  Ryan has really been working with her (and I have too) trying to get her to say da-da and figure out who da-da really is.  After that it is one to ma-ma!

I think it is about time Hoover and da-da get another BGE moment documented!  What do ya think?!?!

Brae is 9 months old today!

October 9, 2008 by  

I can’t believe the time has flown by this fast…its amazing the changes that she has gone through over the last 9 months.  She is crawling, has two teeth and is the sweetest thing you will ever see.  Soon she will be walking…YIKES!

It is so on!

October 6, 2008 by  

Ryan and I are down to less than two weeks left until we leave KC for sunny, warm, relaxing Maui.  I am very much looking forward to this trip.  We both need the break, Ryan more so than me.  We both need to unwind, relax and just chill for a week.  I started looking at another island to visit, Kauai and Kona look pretty cool.  Airfare is pretty cheap to either location, under $300 for both of us roundtrip.  So we’ll see…if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

So, back to the "It is so on!"…now that we have less than two weeks to go, I really need to buckle down and get the last 5 lbs off.  I’m down 10, but my goal was and is 15.  I kind of screwed up this weekend, I tend to do that.  I got up at 4:30 this morning and went to the gym, I ran a couple of miles at lunch and hope to do the same tomorrow…although I have a lunch meeting.  BUT, I will get up at 4:30 and head to the gym tomorrow morning…note to self, set the alarm.

Okay, speaking of alarms our two alarms (Hoover and Sophie) are ready to come in from outside.

"It’s so on"…Rebecca

Rebecca’s Blog Report…I need to do this more!

September 23, 2008 by  

A lot of things have changed since my last blog report.  Spencer made the soccer team and is goalie for BVNW.  Their record is 2-1, they lost last night to a very tough Blue Valley North team.  Braelyn is officially crawling, is able to go from lying down to sitting up and has a tooth!  It’s amazing what a weekend will do to a 8 1/2 month old.
Ryan is busy at work.  He has a board meeting on Wednesday, so he will be working late tonight on his presentation.  We are getting ready for two big events.  Our 3rd Annual Elledge Spook-tacular Halloween Bash and a trip to Maui.  I can’t wait for either one of them, but I am truly ready for our vacation.  It will be nice to get away from work for a week.  I will miss the kids a lot, but I know they will enjoy spending time with the grandparents.  Braelyn is going to Grandma Vickie and Grandpa Steve’s while Spencer is spending time with my mom and dad.  I know both kids will be, what do you call it…oh yeah, SPOILED.  But it will be worth it, the kids don’t get to spend a lot of time with the grandparents.
I am trying very hard to get in shape before the trip.  I’ve lost 6 pounds, just need to lose 6 more.  I’m hitting the gym at least once, but sometimes twice a day.  I am going running with the girls here at work over lunch.  I need to cut down on eating too, didn’t do so great this weekend.  Ryan and I drove through Backyard Burger on Saturday…I love Backyard Burger…they have waffle fries -).
Well need to go…till later!
