12/30 Typical Day

12/30- Describe a typical day in your current life

I know you all have been looking forward to this one!! (jokes)

7:30-8 Wake up to O talking in his crib. Grab him and "snuggle" on the couch. By "snuggle" I mean, me with a blanket.. While Owen is running around destroying the room. (I just read this other mommy blogger's post  and she described her little boy as a terrorist.. that's the word I have searching for. Not a human tornado, that's doesn't quite cover it. But a terrorist, now that's honest.)
Morning ritual: Eat breakfast while starting a blog post. 
Change a diaper.
Go back downstairs, get O in the tub; his favorite part of the day. Get Owen dressed, get myself ready (if I have some where to go, otherwise, it's a yoga pant day for me!) 
Turn the tunes on and have a dance party. 
Change a diaper.
11-12:00 On sunny days we go outside and garden, run, ride bikes, roll in the grass, run, slip n slide or go on an adventure with Susan. (S…

Halloween 2013

This Halloween was a lot more fun than I thought it'd be. I wasn't sure how well O would do..He loved it. He got the hang of the whole trick or treating thing after a couple houses. He then would knock and walk right in when they opened the door. We had a great time.
Carving pumpkins

Chris- Batman O-Lion

It's my goal to match next year..

11/30- Pet Peeves

11/30- Describe 10 of your pet peeves 

1- Empty toilet paper Come on. Is it really that hard to change it?
2-  Spitting  Old men, baseball players, tough guys.. so gross. 
3-  Outwardly comparing Go ahead, do it in your head. But as soon as you start talking about our kids,  our hair, our weight.. let's just stop. 
4- Other people singing to music in my car This is so annoying to me for some stupid reason. Only I'm allowed okay?!
5-Utah drivers  Everyone says "there's bad drivers everywhere". No. No, there isn't. Just Utah. So entitled and they think they OWN the street. Just be considerate and move outta my way. ha (see it's rubbing off on me)
6- Solicitors
Leave me alone dang-it!!

7- Cyber Bullying
It's just plain embarrassing and annoying. You really think you're that tough?! It seriously ticks me off. I want to jump in and say something but then I find that that might make me a hypocrite. Just be kind to one another!!

8- Lady Gaga
Her dumb son…

Finished product!

Remember these beauties? The chairs I found on the side of the road?  Hey at least I'm dumpster diving..

Well, I took them apart, stained them, cut new wood for the seat and got new fabric.

I asked "What sound does a lion make?"  And the finished product-

10/30 Embarassing

10/30- Describe your most embarrassing moment

I think I am just naturally clumsy/silly/embarrassing. There are so many embarrassing moments that I don't think I could narrow it down to one. So I will list my top three.

1- My Freshman year of high school (I think I could just stop here).. I tried out for the softball team. We were doing running/sliding drills. I started at home and sprinted to first.. I started WAY too late into the slide and hit the base with my head, my feet caught up to me and went over my head. Everyone was laughing to hard. All I could do was laugh to not look like a complete fool. I think I even said "I meant to do that". Oh man, what great times.

It may or may not have looked something like this.. in front of both the JV and varsity teams.. and the baseball team. 
2- I think most of my embarrassing moments come from high school (who's don't?) I was a Junior driving in the parking lot by the baseball field where all of the "hot" se…

9/30 Influence

9/30 List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how. 

(In no specific order)

1. My husband- Chris has been my rock. He is always supportive and loving but that's not what has influenced me the most (although they are great things). He is calm. He is patient; I am not. He can take a step back and look at the big picture, no matter the circumstance. I don't. I am in the fight to win it, I get so caught up in the moment. I am getting better but he has a huge affect on me. He is silently teaching me to be still. To listen-to be calm. I love that about him.

2. Natalie- Although I cannot say we are close friends she has made me stop and think about life and motherhood in a way I didn't know existed. I met her out in Hawaii through mutual friends. Since then I have listened to her words and they have made a huge impact in my life. She is truly inspiring. She speaks truth and she isn't afraid to be honest. To me, that is huge. She has no fear of it. I think the majorit…
