New things

Unfortunately I'm the type of person that gets bored with things quickly. My mom says it's something to do with high intelligence...but she's a special education teacher to a bunch of kids that have the exact same problem, so I'm not 100% on the validity of that. So in honor of my boredom I have changed my blog. In case you haven't noticed I've been fiddling with if for a while and I finally found one that I LOVE. Why? Because it has owls!! You can call me crazy but I have a sudden infatuation with owls. I have even picked out all of my bedding and car seat and stroller and what not for my next child....whenever that may be and they are covered in cute little owls.

Why the infatuation? I can't be too sure but I think it might have something to do with my 2 week dedication to reading all 7 of the Harry Potter books. If you haven't read them, I'm so sorry. They were probably one of the most entertaining series that I've ever read. Anyway, the "wizard mail" is all done with owls and most people have their own pet owl that sends mail for them. So they are all through the books.

Also, I made 2 "pages" located in the navbar: an "about me" and a "contact me" (which is still under construction) Fell free to go Check them out. I hope to add more...when my brain stops hurting.

I think I need glasses... to pour me a drink

Honestly, I think I need glasses. With all this time I've been spending laboring over the computer I haven't gone a single day in the last 3 weeks without a headache. Sounds fun doesn't it?! However I'm finally reaching an end to my laborious (?) 9-5 job. I have the finishing touches to do on a few photo's and possibly a senior annoucement but I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

On the flip side, I wasn't really kidding about the cocktail either. My Aaron is going to be gone for 4 days!! Count with me: 1-2-3-4!!! Now, it's perfectly fine if I leave him and go to my parents or something, but for him to leave me? at home? WHO'S GOING TO COOK US FOOD?! Well, I got that one covered. I ordered 2 large pizza's that should serve as leftovers until he gets back. . . right?

I'm kidding. Well, not about the ordering of the 2 pizza's but I'm sure I can whip up some hamburger helper or mac-n-cheese without burning the house down.

Alright I'm kidding again. No need to call CPS. I can cook just fine when I want to. There will be no deprivation of food.

This is normally about the time that Aaron gets home and I'm finding that I've fallen into habit of being able to TALK to someone at about this time of day so instead I'm having to take my frustration out on here. I have a sneaky feeling you will be seeing alot of me this weekend.

I'm surviving so far. We will see how that changes when it get's dark. I am not ashamed to admit that I am terrified of the dark and will most likely go to bed tonight with all the blinds cinched down tight, every window locked, and with every single light in the house on.

Well I must go...Emily just pooped all over the floor and smeared it across the toilet as she tried to correct her mistake. I really wasn't kidding about the cocktail. . .

APRIL MADMESS (I meant "madness" but this works too)

This last month has been insane. I guess that's what happens when you go from being only a stay at home mom to trying to start your own business and work pretty much a 9-5 job. Oh the joys.

"April Madness" as I like to call it is when everyone in Aarons family has a birthday. Brother: Matt, Sister: Kaylee, Mom: Kim, Dad: Willy (beginning of May), Grandpa: Bill, Cousin: Chris, Cousin: Caleb, and just to add to the mix my Mom's birthday is in March, my dad's birthday is in a few days and their anniversary falls somewhere in between! So, yes, it's pretty crazy and Happy Birthday to you all.

I also had Easter and my first wedding ever in the same weekend, then a week long trip down to the valley, and a bed and breakfast shoot. I've been running on empty for 3 weeks now.

So here's a recap of the last month:

Wedding: Jen and Eric

Dying eggs
Hunting eggs

I LOVE this picture and you must look closely to see why:
The Easter Bunny took so much time to glue little monster faces on the eggs that Emily dyed the night before. In this particular picture the egg looks like it is screaming "NO" as Emily precariously holds it over the edge. Looks like humpty dumpty is going to have a great fall. . .

The Valley:

{will post pictures of the trip soon...I have yet to get some of the pictures}

Kaylee's birthday:

I also love this picture for many reasons:

1) Grandpa Bills face- "what in the world is she wearing?!"
2) I bought her the flip flop socks...yep, those are socks that you wear with your flip flops. What is the pupose you ask? None what so ever! Which leads me to...
3) This is SO Kaylee...goofy, carefree, and just happy.
I love my sister!!

This weekend is the big bakersfield birthday bash for everyone and I'm sure I will have plenty from that, but I will leave off with this:

Today would be my "grandma up the ditch banks" 77th birthday. So Happy Birthday Grandma, I know you're up there singing and dancing with your new knees and Aunt Betty.

I probably won't blog over the weekend but now that life is HOPEFULLY settling down I will be able to keep you all more posted!
