Just a picture of the my fiance's game. I too love World of Warcraft, but didn't play tonight because I was working out. I realized as I laid down to do some crunches that I hadn't taken a picture for my blog today, so this is what you get!

Stay tuned tomorrow though, there will be a super cute picture being posted! ;)

Yay for change right?

My fiance picked this up on his way home from work today. We're going to lose weight together and get in shape! I'm excited! By the way this scale is AWESOME! It pretty much tracks everything you need to know! heehee!

Yes, we went out riding Madyn's bike again today. And just as his shirt says, "awesome ends with me" is very much a true statement! This boy is a daredevil. Today, he decided he would try to let go to scratch his nose while he was riding his bike. Then he tested riding his bike without both hands!

Madyn has had these blocks since he was about 18 months. I believe it was his second Christmas when he got them. His grams got them for him. At first he wasn't really into them, and it was more of a mommy plays with them and maybe, just maybe I'll play with them kind of thing. Now that Madyn is older and we still have these same brightly colored blocks, he uses the heck out of them. He truely lets his immagination run wild when playing with these.

He has built towers and castles and the occasional "block gun" (to shoot the "bad guys" with) ;). I love watching him build with these, and I love helping him build with them. When we get rid of these blocks I'll be a sad mommy. I think these blocks have helped to fuel his immagination.

Without further ado the blocks. . .

I titled this picture "let them be little" because these blocks are made for little kids. My Madyn will always be my "baby" regardless of his age though. I know I'll have to let him grow up (and I am trust me) but he is my first, and I hope we always have a special bond. He's a sweetheart... When he's being good ;)

Today's picture is of my eye shadow. When going to work this is my favorite piece of my "outfit." I have to wear black shirt and black pants so when it comes to this I have fun with it. I love bright colors and I think it helps when I'm dealing with kids for them to look at my face and see color versus seeing all black from head to toe. Makes it a little less intimidating I think.

Today was my birthday. I'm a whole 22 years old! yay!

I can't resist a sweet kiss from my baby boy.

Today we had a great day just relaxing and watching football games together. We had Nachos for lunch and we're cooking pizza for dinner shortly. Its been a good day overall.




Nothing special for today's picture. Just a snapshot of my calendar with the countdown til my birthday!

This is my sons favorite past time right now. He spent an hour and a half riding his bike around the complex tonight and fell about 3 times. The darned training wheels kept veering off the side of the sidewalk into the rocks. But every time he would fall he would just get up, dust his pants and shirt off and get right back onto his bike.

My little daredevil is asking for rollerskates or rollerblades for his birthday. I'm not sure I'm ready for him to tackle that adventure yet! :(

Day 19 out of 365!

Madyn is always SO happy when his daddy gets home. I have caught this moment on camera before, but not recently. Today I managed to do that again. I love these moments so much. I'm so glad that Madyn has his daddy!

Madyn hopped onto Brandon's leg and wouldn't let go. He didn't even shy away when I went to take this picture.

One of my friends from middle/high school came over with her newest little bundle of joy today. I enjoyed taking his newborn pictures.

I loved meeting him and seeing his mommy again!

Yesterday my future mother in law brought over a new Valentine's day decoration! I'm in love with it! She has one of these pretty much for every holiday.

it's got 3 different pattern fabric and 3 solid colors that correspond to the patterned fabric.
Thank you Debbie!

Phew, what a morning. Got up and had breakfast with my boys. Then we got ready and headed to the park. Madyn rode his bike and we tossed the football around. We being my boys of course. I was there to enjoy and to take pictures of my boys playing and enjoying themselves. I chose one of these pictures for todays 365 picture.

I just love the way he reacted when he was catching the ball. He did catch the ball too! He had so much fun this morning and is now napping.

being that it is winter, I needed a winter treat this morning. I fixed up a cup of hot cocoa and whipped cream. I thought it was pretty in the black and white cup.

I love seeing the look of my son's face when we're playing games together. This is probably one of his favorites right now. Seen above is Madyn playing a game of hungry hungry hippos with me & Brandon. I used the timer for this shot and it is one of 20+ I took. I'll be editing more and collaging them together but tonight I just needed one for the blog.

I love the way the edit came out, and it was an accident actually. Just playing with colors and effects on picnik. :)

Today I spent a lot of quality time with my sweet little neice. She's getting bigger every time I see her! Today she had her 4 month checkup. She weighs 11 lbs 3 oz and is 23 3/4 in long! :)

I have an obsession with baby feet btw.

Oh winter how I love thee.


So I'm late posting yesterdays but I promise I DID take this on January 9th, I was just exhausted and busy yesterday so it didn't make it to the blog before midnight.

This is a picture of the necklace my wonderful fiance got me for Chrismtas. I love it. It is my birthstone (Garnet). The last piece of Garnet jewelry I owned was a garnet ring that my mom gave to me when I was 12. I treasure this necklace so much.

Excuse my late posting, but I had a very busy saturday. I worked from 10:00-4, stopped by the store picked up a fruit tray, came home switched clothes had my future sister in law curl my hair and then we went to a girls night at her friends house. I really enjoyed myself.

My picture for yesterday is a picture of me and the other girls minus a couple I think.

Guess who came to visit for a little while today?

That's right! DiAnna-Jo! :)

As of now I'm going to be copyrighting my pictures. I spend too much time creating pictures to have them stolen. So excuse the purple bar above her head ;)

She is doing really well. She's 3 1/2 months old now already! and is really good at holding her head up. Madyn is still super in awe of his baby cousin. I tried taking a picture of them together but the lighting wasn't quite right so that's my goal for next time!

Anyways. Hope you all had a great friday! Tomorrow night I'm going to a party with a friend. Should be fun, it's the first time I'm going out without Brandon/Madyn in like a year!

Today we set out on an adventure. Me, Madyn & My cousin Brandi. Our adventure? To find places to do hers and her future hubby's engagement pictures (YAY!). The day yielded many photo opportunities and I took full advantage of every single one too. Which caused for quite the dilemma when trying to decide which ONE picture to use for today. In the end you'll see that I chose a picture that summed up today.

We enjoyed walking around downtown phoenix, and I really got to see how beautiful that area is. Architectural and cultural. I once lived on that side of town, but when I did it wasn't as "grown up" as it is now. I loved looking at all the buildings and just feeling the buzz of the people walking around town.

It was beautiful.

This little guy decided to hop in the water and enjoy a quick bath. He wasn't affected by me trying to snap the perfect shot either. It was really cool! :)

If you want to see more of the shots from today please check out my facebook! :)

I'm getting used to wearing my glasses again. It's definitely been weird, but I'm really enjoying being able to see the world clearly without having to squint. I spent about an hour trying to take pictures of things that had meaning but in the end it was a simple closeup picture of me with my glasses. Enjoy!

Woot Woot, getting #4 out of the way early in the day!
My little man decided he was going to be a super hero today, and wanted to wear a cape. We had so much fun playing outside and enjoying our beautiful weather today.
Here's Madyn's sweet little smile as my 4th picture of the year.

Oh how I love this smile of his. He truely melts my heart in his own super hero way!

Have a good day all.

I didn't really make any New Years Resolutions this year, but I do want to try to cook more, and with this I think I'll achieve my goal. :)

If I use a recipe I'll make sure to post here which one I tried. I love this cookbook and can't WAIT to crack into it!

Tried to do it last year but failed! (1/365)

Now that is a new year I'm going to try again with this project!

Last year I tried to do the "365" project but got all mixed up when we went to Ryan's wedding and then at Memorial day. So this year I'm going to give it another try. So this blog will now become my "365" blog! :D

Here is day one!

So the coloring is really weird, and yeah I kinda airbrushed my skin because i was REALLY red and no makeup, but its me and my baby. Today.

I'm really looking forward to this new year and all that it has in store. Hope everyone had a safe New Years and look forward to seeing you guys around!
