Really the JETS? Well we can't have everything. I can't wait to go to a game and see them cheer. I told Jessica to pick out a cute linemen and cheer for him. she asked what that was? OH MY.

Steve took the picture for me. You can see the beef hanging down from the back. It was CRAZY. and NO my dear friends. I did NOT eat the whole thing. NOT even close. I took a huge pile of meat off and cut the sandwich in half and only consumed one half of the sandwich. There was still half left over and enough meat for two more NORMAL sized sandwiches. I HEART Vizzies!

When Big Brother and i were younger, 10 or so, my dad bought a go-cart. Well to be honest we had a few go-carts and four wheelers in our day, but this particular one was "for us" but not really at the same time. We wanted something fast! Something that would run in the field or the parking lot. Did i mention we wanted something FAST. So my dad buys a "go-cart" that looks like a model T. Yup. A Model T. Now this "go-cart" as it was billed was built for 1. and there was always more then 1 of us. So we converted the back part to more riding space. Someone drove and someone rode int he back, conveniently sitting right over top the DO NOT RIDE WITH PEOPLE IN THE BACK sign. And we were rough on it. So rough. But hey, we were kids and we were rough on EVERYTHING. BB would drive while Myself, or one of our friends would hold on for dear life on the back. Sometimes when we were feeling daring we would lace up our Rollerblades and let BB pull us around behind the "go-cart". Looking back possibly not our brightest moment. Alas we were kids.
What does this have to do With Kanyon? Well BB got the "go-cart" out two weekends ago (yes my dad still has it) and started tinkering with it. it ran. So on we threw Kanyon. And here is the conversation from that.
BB~ You can ride it now, get on
Kanyon~ Wheres my helmet?
BB~ (looks at me) ahhh...
Me~ We don't have your helmet here but it'll be ok
Kanyon~ Daddy you really should have brought my helmet if I was going to be riding this go-cart.
BB and Me~ (blank stares) ahhhhh
BB~ GET ON! and don't go to fast.
Kanyon~ (takes off way to fast)
Me~ Helmet huh? We should have thought about that...right?
BB~ I guess so.
US~ Oh well.

don't get me wrong I LOVE my nephew. but sometimes he's more like a little brother then a nephew. He tattles on me when i dangle him outside the pool, when i shove him in the water with his mouth open, when i throw the diving rings at his head (not hard). He fights me for the best toys (why must I always be the beat up match box car with a missing wheel?). And for some reason whenever we play star wars or power ranger, my two FAVORITE things to do (insert eye roll), i never win. I cut off his arm he replaces it with a robot arm. He cuts off my arm... I'm dead? What? different rules? Here's what happen Saturday.
Kanyon~ I'll be Darth Mal (spelling?)
Me~ I want to be Yoda.
Kanyon~ Can you jump over me?
Kanyon~ Can. You. Jump. Over. ME (said it very smart ass like, like he was speaking slowly for me because i'm stupid or something)
Me~ Uhm pretending? Yes.
Kanyon~ We aren't pretending.
Me~What? (my mistake didn't realize this was FOR REAL)
Kanyon~ If you can't jump over me while I'm standing up, you can't be Yoda.
Me~ I'll pretend to jump over you like this. (i make weird gestures and then jump in the air)
Kanyon~ What was that?
Me~I jumped over you.
Kanyon~ Uhm. no you didn't.
Me~ I don't want to play anymore. (throws sword down and stomps off in a huff)
Yes I am just that grown up.

Another classmate is hosting a give away on her blog. Up for grabs, a handmade bag by Mr. Michael Lynn Wherley. Yes that's right. an original. can't find it anywhere else, Kick ass bag. All you have to do is go check out Fikle Chik and follow her rules for entering. You get to pick from a few of her favorites. and the girl has taste. so I'm plugging Mike's shop, and Lauren's blog today, because us West York kids seem to stick together.
My favorite bag up for grabs is #8 on her board. I'm so glad it's on there I was looking at Mike's site last week (I think it was last week time blends together so much), and i saw it and fell in love. So that's my pick. I think you should all swing by and check out the give a way over at Fikle Chik, I think you guys will enjoy her blog all around. And stop by Enjoy and check out all the bags Mike has to offer.

Yes. I understand it's preseason. Yes i get the fact that these games don't count. And I'll see 4th string guys I didn't even know existed. But....it's football time. It's STEELERS FOOTBALL time. And I love me some Steelers football. So imagine how sad I was to see they play the Bills preseason, the week AFTER I'll be in Buffalo. AHH. I could have watched the game with the Smith's. Soccermom and I in our Steelers Jersey's and Steve in his Bills (lame) jersey. Oh well.
Can't wait to see what happens this season. I just hope they play as well as they did last year. I would hate to see them shit the bed after winning the SB.
6 days to go. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?

1.) What's ailing you? Diagnose yourself with a syndrome.
2.) Share with us something you made by hand.
3.) Fess up. Tell us what you found after a spying on someone.
4.) "How are y'all doing it? This summer, I mean? I cannot remember ever being as busy as we've been over the past two months. Those of you who are blogging daily, being as witty and entertaining as ever...I beg of you...HOW?"
5.)What are you afraid of?
To my faithful readers, I'm sorry if you've read something similar, by similar i mean almost verbatim, early this week on my blog. But i have provided more back story this time :) You have the wonderful Mama Kat to thank for this re-post. Enjoy
I've decided to share with everyone something i hand made. Apparently ALL my friends decided to get together and choose this year to get knocked up. Yeah. nice of them huh. I swear sometimes people think only of themselves. So this has meant busy times for me with baby showers, and baby gift buying. i thought something handmade would be a nice touch to all the rattles and onies. So i opted to make them scrapbooks. Because let's face it. They wouldn't have time to do it themselves what with all the feedings, diapers, and baby vomit to contend with. So I set upon making them for them. I just finished my second one and have maybe 2 more to go yet. OH BOY! The first one was fun, this one wasn't to bad, but I'm REALLY not looking forward to the NEXT one. Lucky for me i have about 4 months before i need to start it so that'll give me some time to get back into the happy place i need to be in to hammer another one out. So without further delay. I give you 5 pages from Soccer Mom's scrapbook.
the best part. They all know about eachothers books, so they are awaiting their own. GREAT

The Smith's on their bike. THEY WISH!
Our tour was modified because they were working on the 2010 bikes so they couldn't take us to the assembly line. They were having the dealer show that weekend so after then you could see the bikes. they are very Willy Wonker and Chocolate Factory secretive about the bikes. So now you can go see the Assembly line, but we couldn't. Figures. We had a blast none the less.

Yup. these guy. the one on the rocket ship trying to live out his life long dream to ride the quarter rocket, is going to be guiding a CHILD. Best of luck to you. and oh yeah. thanks for stopping by. I just felt compelled to say that.
No. I think he'll be a fine dad. I mean. He showed me how to hit a golf ball, drank shots of Goldslagger (?) with until we (I) could hardly stand. Told my ex I was easy. And loves the Maury Povich show. See the makings of a great dad.

So Imagine the good chuckle I got while catching up on my Steelers Gab today. Sure a lot of the posts were about Big Ben and the "did he or didn't he". In my opinion, which doesn't count for much, I would say he didn't. but what do I know, maybe he did. Either way I don't think we'll ever know for sure. But the post I especial enjoyed. was this one. CRACKED ME UP.
So you know what I have to say to you Mr. Suggs, aside from Suggs who?, right back at you big boy. I'd hate the Steelers to if they knocked you out of the super bowl. I'd hate the steelers to if it was always a down and dirty prison yard football game when you play them. I'd hate them to. Makes sense. I'm kind of glad you aren't wearing a "you beat your sweet ass I LOVE the Steelers", that would be cause for concern. So right back at you big boy.
Because while the Browns will always be our rivals. The Ravens are by FAR the team every steelers fan wants to see stomped into the ground. No hard feelings Suggs. Just sayin. See ya in November buddy. Oh yeah and say hello to Mr. Lewis for me. Hugs and Kisses!
God I hope they make this shirt with the Ravens instead of the Steelers. I'll be all over that shit!
I put a photo on this page of the happy couple in my living room. It's super cute. So those are a few of the pages for her book. I hope she likes it. I think it came out very nice.
