Tagged, again

You have to post these rules before you give the facts.Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

R--Riener is my maiden name and I will always be a Riener. When people from my home town see my girls their first comment is usually, "Oh, that's a little Riener girl for sure." It makes me happy to know that they look like me, I think it's neat when people look like their family members.

O--Obsesive, some would say that I am a bit obsesive about things. From my last tagged blog, you all know that I like to have things a certain way and if it's not that way I get a little agitated.

B--Beautician, I have always wanted to do hair. My senior year I actually signed up to go to LCSC for business management but changed my mind the summer after I graduated. My mom was a little upset that I wasn't going to college, but I knew this was for me. I did end up going to LC a year later for business management and I think it helps with co-owning my salon now. I hope my mom thinks I did the right thing also, I can't imagine doing anything else.

I--Imaginative, I like to imagine how things are going to be or how they are going to turn out. I know all parents do this, but I find myself imagining what the girls are going to be like when they get older and what they will do. Will they be more carefree like Ryan, or more on- task/obsessive like me. Not that I want time to go by any faster, I still can't believe they will be 2 years old in 2 months, I just imagine....

N--Not anyone else, just myself. Recently I read my baby book and a book that my mom and dad filled out telling about themselves and myself growing up. In it when they asked who I was most like or looked like, they both put that I was just myself. I never tried to be like someone growing up and I always did what "I" wanted. I do think I am a little like my mom but we still differ on some things.

That was harder than I thought! I am tagging Tami R.

What a weekend!

I feel like I didn't see my kids hardly at all this weekend. Friday after work I picked the kids up, picked the babysitter up and then brought them back to our house. Not even 20 minutes later we were leaving to go down to serve beer at the Hot August Nights concert, which was a blast. Saturday morning Ryan left about 7:15 to go to his softball tournament and then I brought the girls there at 8:30 so Caylie and Ashlyn could watch them while I worked until 11. The twins were so fussy when I got there, I feel sorry for Caylie and Ashlyn having to put up with them, it was all I could do to calm them down.(which they didn't do until they laid down for a 3 hour nap) We then headed back over to watch Ryan, Becky, and Cori play some more. They got 1st place in the Potlatch Softball tournament! Sunday morning while doing some laundry downstairs I found a not so welcome visitor. It turned out to be a black widow spider!! If anyone know how much I hate spiders you will understand my reaction. I then took the girls up to my moms house so Ryan could set off bug bombs while we were gone. I left the girls at my moms this morning and came back home to start cleaning my ENTIRE house top to bottom. It took about 8 hours but it is finally done. There shouldn't be any more 8 legged friends hiding out because I vacuumed every corner, cubby hole, and under everything I could think of. The whole time I kept thinking spiders were crawling on me, but it was just my hair touching me. If anyone knows any good ways to keep spiders away please let me know because I HATE them!

8 random things

We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.*Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.*People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.*At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.

1. I am very organized. Everything has it's place, if it's out of place I have to move it back. From the order I put clothes in the closet to how I cut someones hair. I have a specific order and place for everything and if I don't do it in that order or it's not in that place it drives me crazy.
2. I have to have my bed made before I get into it. Even if it is unmade when I get home, I will make it before I go to bed, I also pin my sheets to my blanket. Ryan hates it.
3. I have to clean all of my house at the same time. I can't clean one room this day and another room the next day. My laundry is the same way.
4. I hate ketchup, even the smell of it. But I will mix it with mayo for fry sauce. Ryan puts it on everything, so if I can smell it when he is eating I have to sit somewhere else.
5. I dent the front of my pop or beer can, it's been habit since highschool. My best friend dented the back and I dented the front.
6. I don't like to hear people chewing their food. I have to have the tv or radio on at home so I can't hear the sound. Banana's are the worst.
7. I make lists for everything. I will even write stuff down that I just did so I can check it off.
8. As soon as I get home for work my hair goes into a pony tail and I change into either pj pants or shorts. I will even wear it to the grocery store or walmart if I have to go there. I am not much for wearing dress clothes, comfort it the best.
I don't have anyone to tag, who ever reads this and starts their own blog next is tagged.

Surprising a friend

Last weekend we had a friend turning 30. She wanted her 30th birthday party to be big so Becky decided all us girls needed to throw her a surprise party. Planning it was very hard because Velvet(the b-day girl) was also planning a party of her own. In the end it worked out great and we all had a blast. The limo was so fun we were talking about renting one every couple of months for something fun to do.(we'll see if it actually happens). The strangest thing happened that night though, Chris Bremer out danced us all! Some of us girls were ready to go home and our husbands kept pulling us out on the dance floor, usually it's the other way around with our crowd. All in all the night was one to remember. Enjoy some pictures of the day in my slide show.

The Fair

This slide show is of pictures of the girls from this summer. Well, we went to the Idaho County fair and the girls really liked it. They were a little leary out some of the animals and would only touch the rabbits. My little cousin Luke was trying to tie his steer up but the steer wasn't cooperating which made Jordis very concerned. Towards the end of the night Elise looked like a true redneck child running around in only her diaper and a shirt, she sat in the stroller a little too long and I didn't realize she was wet. I received a blue ribbon on my scrapbook but the competition wasn't the greatest, there was only two other books. I'm going to enter a couple pages down here in the Nez Perce county fair and see what I get.

I'm a newby

I had been contemplating on if I wanted a myspace account or not so when I saw Tami and Cori's blog spot I decided this was more my style.(plus Ryan said myspace would crash our computer) It took me awhile to figure out how to set up my blog but I finally finished it, for now. I am at my moms house with my girls so we can go to the Idaho County fair tonight. I entered a couple scrapbook pages in and a cross stitched picture that actually Ryan did but he didn't want his name on it for everyone to see, but I am sure if it gets a ribbon he will be bragging about it to everyone. My neice Jessi is modeling in the fashion show so we are going to watch her and eat some fair-food. I wonder how the girls will react to the animals this year. Last year Jordis was wanting to get closer to them and Elise was trying to get away from them. Of coarse I will have my camera ready so I can have even more pictures to scrapbook at the Sept. retreat, I might be pushing it to get all caught up this time. I'll post more later!
