photo update!


My “Mama” Carolyn took Olivia and I shopping and out to lunch. She is the sweetest! She has a east coast/southern accent. She says the most CRAZY things. I love her to death. I call her my “mama” because she tries to tell me what to do all the time :)


I turned around to take a break from blogging and this is what I saw. I’m so glad that I always keep my camera next to me, because Olivia sitting still doesn’t happen very often and I love how happy Daddy looks hanging out with his babies.



I picked up some window clings from the dollar store. They are Olivia’s favorite part about decorating for the holidays. I let her put them on all by herself. I don’t stress about where they go, because I know the next day she will asked to play with her “window stickers” and have them moved around again.


Just give me a green apron and hire me! I finally learned how to use my starbucks barista machine! And in case you are wondering.. I make AMAZING mochas! Anytime anyone is in the mood for coffee, come on over and save a couple bucks! Mike’s Dad had given this to me before he passed away. He knew how much I loved coffee. It was really sweet. I wish he was still here to tell me that I’m doing it wrong and to give me a hard time. I really missed him today.



I always look forward to the hour before Isaac wakes up. Olivia and I get some much needed cuddles in and it’s all about her. Balancing two babies hasn’t always been easy but having mornings like these are precious.


Laundry. I hate laundry. Really, I do. Well it’s not so much the washing that I hate. I really hate folding and putting away the laundry. I usually block out a morning and devote it especially to laundry. I MUST fold it and I MUST put it away that day. It wont get done any other way.


Olivia loves to “tir.”  She helped me make whole grain chocolate muffins.They were fantastic! I love when we are getting ready to make something, she has to get her apron and hat to bake like Daddy. She is the best little baker!

Resolutions 2011

These are seem pretty attainable right now in my life. I just hope that I can stick to it..

  1. Do P90X for 90 days
  2. Loose 15 lbs.
  3. Take 1 picture everyday – Project365
  4. Spend less
  5. Make more
  6. Send birthday cards to close friends & family
  7. Make more crafts with Olivia
  8. Keep to our monthly budget
  9. Drink 4 water bottles of water everyday
  10. Wear every shirt in my closet – 100 days with 100 shirts.
  11. Laugh every single day.

{Side notes} Yes, I have 100 shirts. I counted them and almost died. Then I said I couldn’t buy anymore clothing until I wore every single shirt and decided which ones I hate or just didn’t do me justice. So in addition to my project 365, I’ll also have pictures of what I wore that day… if I got dressed ;)

Project 365

So it’s that time again and this time I mean business! 

I’m going to do 365. I’m not going to miss a day and then when it’s all said and done, I’m going to scrapbook all the pages!

That right. I’m going to do it.

Here are some of my ideas:

  • daily routines
  • bedrooms
  • grocery shopping
  • contents of my purse/diaper bag
  • meals
  • outfits
  • doctors appointments

And my goals:

  1. Carry my camera with me everywhere
  2. Become not so shy with picture taking
  3. improve my photography skills
  4. scrapbook the photos
  5. keep a journal/blog of the day
  6. keep receipts, tags, memorabilia of the day in an envelope.


We got Olivia from Grandma’s. She had stayed the week with her on a whim. We really missed her but the funny thing is, is that Isaac missed her more. He didn’t sleep good. He wasn’t napping and he was just plain grumpy. That night, he slept through the night and was back on schedule. I didn’t think their bond was that tight yet, guess I was wrong. What a great way to start the new year, two very very happy kids.

PS. Happy New Year!!
