Loosing teeth

Barrett lost his first tooth on Sunday night.  He had tried to get some legos apart with his tooth and it made his tooth loose.  He wiggled it and wiggled it. Later that night, he let Derek pull it out.  He woke up in the middle of the night and remembered to look under his pillow to see that the Tooth fairy had come.  When I went to wake him up he was holding the money in his hand!  Too cute! He was so excited to go to school and tell everyone he had lost his tooth.  He got to get his name on the tooth chart and got a certificate from his teacher! Such an exciting event!!!

Preschool has begun

Brooklyn had her first day of preschool today.  She woke up excited and ready to go to school.  
Of course, today is was raining cats and dogs when it was time to leave for school, so we were a little late and a little frazzled(me, not her).  But, lots of others were late too. She was a little hesitant to go in, since we didn't make it to Meet the Teacher.  But, then she saw the babies and all was good. 

She is going 2 days again this year and some of her classmates from last year are in her class. Brooklyn's favorite things today were painting and playing in the home center. She had a great day and already made some new friends. She said she already loves her teachers. And, I agree that they seem great!  We are looking forward to another fun year.  After school we went to Chick-fil-a for ice cream for a first day treat!
 As for me, I worked out, ate lunch with Derek and got a pedicure.  I think I am going enjoy the time she is at school almost as much as Brooklyn.!

Blog Revamp

So, I'd like to come up with a different name for my blog.  It was 2 Busy B's for a while, now the Reaves family. Anyone have an good ideas?  I write about family life and my kids alot but sometimes about things here in Austin and then just random thoughts of mine.

Also, I'd like a new background, any good tips of sites/people?

Where I look

Whenever I get some time, I enjoy looking at blogs.  I love to look at my friends blogs and see what they have been up to.  Its fun to see things on my friends blogs that we never seem to talk about, but that happens in their day to day life.
But, I also like to look at some random blogs of people I don't know at all or blogs about decorationg, fashion and such.  Here are some of the ones I like to look at:

Hostess with the Mostess - this blog has lots of entertaining tips and ideas

Young House Love- ideas for the home, design and decor

Aspiring Kennedy- She has great ideas and is just funny

The Pioneer Woman- I love her site!  Good recipes, ideas and just fun to read

Plum Bliss- tips and tricks for the home.

Fly Through Our Window- ideas on just about anything you could imagine.

Bakerella- baking ideas and other fun

Jenna's Journey-Blog about lots of family life, recipes and faith

Aarti- I started liking Aarti when she was on The Next Food Network Star.

What blogs do you frequent? It is always fun to have more to look at!

always, sometimes, never

I Always...

want to travel
need my coffee in the morning
drink lots of water
love foot rubs
listen to music when I run
love Mexican food
kiss and hug my kids goodnight
lick the bowl when I'm baking
enjoy looking for new recipes to try
have a book I am reading
enjoy spending time with my hubby

I Sometimes...

spend too much time on the internet
sing and dance around like a crazy person with my kids
wash my hair 2 days in a row
iron my clothes
wonder what it would be like to be in a musical
need a little time to myself
bite my fingernails
(but very rarely) watch or read the news

I Never...

can travel light
use shaving cream when I shave
like being sick
have eaten something chocolate that I didn't like
pet a dog unless its an absolute must
have broken a bone
drink milk- gag!

What about you?

Spoken from the Heart

Spoken from the Heart

I recently read the Laura Bush autobiography, Spoken from the heart.  My mom gave me the book and I kept looking at it and not picking it up.  But, I finally read it.  It was interesting.  I especially liked the early years of Laura's life- growing up, teaching, meeting George, and the early political career of GW.  It was neat because parts took place in Austin when we lived here.  Some of the presidential years recaps were a little boring. This post isn't really about this book as much as the book being a reminder to me that I really like biographies.  You learn so much! I don't even read nonfiction that much. So, I am hoping to expand my reading a bit.
I am looking for some biographies to read. Please, let me know of any good ones you have read.
