Melissa Sandvig’s husband

Back in May, I blogged about how I had lunch with Melissa Sandvig (ummm…haven’t heard of her? Top 4 ladies on So You Think You Can Dance!) when we went on our Disney vacation. The reason I met her is because her now *famous* husband is my friend from 2nd grade! So, on our vacation, a bunch of us old friends ate lunch together.

Erik is such a sweet, supporting husband to Melissa. You may have seen him every week on the show doing something like this in the audience:

It’s no surprise to me. Look at him back in 1989!

Erik trying to ‘get seen’ AGAIN

So, what is the point of this blog today? Please VOTE for Melissa next week and get her to the top 3 ladies!! (And don’t you want to see what sign Erik will be holding up???)

my birthday girl

God made me a mommy by blessing me with Rilyn FIVE years ago today.  She is such a sweet little girl who simply desires to please others through obedience and kind acts.

She is artistic.  One of the best gifts I could give her today would be a ream of printer paper!  She sits for hours at our kitchen table creating art for her family and friends.

She is a girly girl!  I asked her a couple of questions yesterday and her answers, I think, sum up her ‘girlyness’.

Mommy:  What do you first think about when you wake up?

Rilyn:  Princesses.

Mommy:  If you had a million dollars, what would you buy?

Rilyn:  a wedding dress (James, do we have a savings account started already for the girls’ weddings?!?)

Mommy:  If I was a genie and granted you three wishes, what would they be?

Rilyn:  First wish would be to be a beautiful princess.  Second wish would be to be a beautiful queen.  Third wish would be that all my friends would be my sisters.

Rilyn is a lover, not a fighter.

Mommy:  What are you most scared of?

Rilyn:  Ella hitting me.

I was interested in finding out Rilyn’s vision for her future in her wise old age of five.

She told me very matter of factly that:

When she is 10 she will be at Disneyland.

When she is 15 she will be graduating high school.  (Sorry to burst your bubble, sweetie, but that’s not going to happen.)

When she is 20 she will NOT be taking naps anymore.

When she is 25 she is going to be married, a teacher, and a mommy with four kids (wow!  A true mommy’s girl-minus one child)!

When she is 30 she will be cooking.  (I hope she will be doing more than that at 30!)  😉

And when she is 35 she will be sitting in a wheel chair.  (I told Rilyn that 35 was older than I am and I guess she thought that naturally old people sit in wheel chairs!)  😉

just a little temperamental

I was just so fed up with Ella’s crying fits the other day, that the only thing I could do for my sanity was to video tape her and know that one day this would be funny to me!  If this is what she acts like during a simple ‘ball game’ then we are going to have a lot of fun during the teenage years!  (Pardon our white trash backyard, we had to put all the kids toys ‘up’ so our lawn guy could mow for the first time this year!)

*I love how Rilyn stands up for her sister and says, “Stop video taping her!”  What a mean mommy I am!
