That Awkward Moment When: There's a fake photographer

Tuesday, March 27, 2012
Its almost not my anniversary anymore! Oh wait, it's totally not. 12:05. Lame.

It was a happy day of goodness. Lots of visitors and such. David got me flowers. Igot him nothing. Except I DID do my makeup and my hair. Right? I'm a good wife like that. Iplan on getting him a gift tomorrow in Phoenix. And I WASgoing to make him some calzones. So that counts too right? It ended up being a much busier day than planned. Which was good. Bad and Janell cooked for us. And cut my Nickles hair. AND bathed my kids. So yes, it was definitely a good day. We were originally going over there to take a picture or two. But it ended up being a lot more than that! Thanks friends!

So Iwas (<---- OMG it's back. The whole I thing) looking at an album on Facebook. They were pictures from a wedding. That the photographer of the wedding did not take. You could sometimes see the photographers arm, or his camera, or his body but these pictures were not his, nor were they very good.

I realized that this poor guy probably didn't know he had a shadow the whole time. Or he was really annoyed that he did. I've only done a few really important photo shoots and Iknow how annoying it is to have Aunt Jane standing right next to you, trying to take over your shot. It's like the whole personal bubble gets REALLY thrown out the window when you're at a wedding taking pictures. Family and friends don't even care that their job is NOT to take pictures, but to stay out of the way. Naw, they are like your new best friends, your FREE assistants.

It was just a little funny to me. Iknow this makes me sound so rude. But you guys know that Idon't care.

Happy Anniversary lover!Oh wait, he doesn't read my blog. He asked me today in the car, "What do you write about on your blog?" lol. Isort of love that though. Because I get a sense of individualism from it. Knowing that I can write whatever Iwant about him, and he can read it whenever he wants, but that he won't. So sweetness when you read this 10 years from now, just know that Ilove you tons! and I love YOU who is reading this blog tons too!

Striped Socks and Swankles

Sunday, March 25, 2012
So many thoughts in my mind right now.
If I had to say everything in a few short sentences Iwould say,

Dad died 6 years ago.
My anniversary is tomorrow.
I'm having a baby any day, but probably in like 2 weeks
My swankles bug me.
I hate people (women) who don't stand up for themselves.
I'm thankful for (SOVERYMUCHSO) long distance friends. They are my besties.

Lots of big, heavy things Ithink. This stoopid laptop doesn't like to put spaces between the words when Iuse the letter I. I'm serious. I'm not gonna fix it anymore.

I've said so many times over, and talked about it so much, the death of my dad. One of my sisters said she was having a particularly hard time this year. Itotally get it. Ihate to be that vague girl when Isay that there are some familial things that make is especially difficult this year. Is it hard to take me seriously when Iwrite things and don't put spaces between them? It's annoying that the I makes me do that. Look! A Space!It did it on its own. Ithink it's trying to tell me something? Does anyone want to analyze for me? lol.

My dad was that super laid back guy. Iloved his voicemail greeting, "I'll get back to you. Don't Stress." Love it. Don't stress. Don't stress people! It's not even worth it. But it's pretty much all Ido nowadays.

I'm Movin' On came on my iPod (it was on shuffle) as Idrove into the sunset. It was quite awesome. To all my friends who have lost a parent, I'm thinking of you! And aware of you!


The Awesomest Owl Baby Shower Ever

Monday, March 19, 2012
 How to throw a great owl baby shower: Let me and my people help! I'm not saying I'm cool or anything, I'm just saying I'm awesome. lol. But for real, when I grow up, I want to be a party planner.

Thank you to my sisters and mom and Coco for helping make this happen. It was everything I wanted. I'm so lucky and grateful and thankful. Minus all the people who said they were coming and didn't, it was a great success.

I made the owl garland from an idea I saw on Pinterest. Can you believe it? I made something from Pinterest! Here is the blog post I got the idea and the template from (for free!).


Can you believe it? Thank you to Kristi and her mom for the flower arrangements. They added so much to the decor! Decor?Who says decor? I guess I do cause I'm fancy.

Favors were important to me. Only because I feel like it's a way of saying thank you. I did sanitizer from Bath and Body Works (the Fresh Picked series kind) and taped tags on that matched the owl theme and then tied a ribbon on as well.

 Thank you Jaime for the plush owl that I think she got from here.

Food was great and yummy and happy and PRETTY!



And then there were cupcakes. Yeah. Those. Omg. The best. I will not reveal my source. Fine. I will. It's Karen. She is amazing. She matched my invitation owl so perfectly. And the detail... down to the single piece of sprinkle for the eye...amazing!!!





Here is the invite that these amazing cupcakes matched. The invites came from here. They are sort of adorable right?

Blogger Mommy Post

Sunday, March 11, 2012
Should I warn you when a post is the mommy blog kind? This might be one. The clothes picture is because I want to brag about my husband. He went to Goodwill and got kids clothes! Say whuuut? Right? The jeans are totally cute and and and they are Levi's. I'm sort of super proud. I think he spent $7.

Also, I basically look and feel like a cow. The crazy awful pain in my left groin ligament area is enough to make me wanna fist pump a Jersey Shore character in the face, which is saying something. Because that show is awesome. Lol.

Speaking of animals, we got rid of our beloved Silver today. We had her for a total of 2.5 months. She was our miniature schnauzer. Unfortunately, it was her time to go. No we didn't kill her you ruthless heartless humans. We gave her away. I won't lie and say that I didn't want to do that sometimes but I'm pretty sure they would revoke my PETA membership. Jackson only teared up for a second. And me? For like an hour. Only because he started it. It wasn't even cause I was sad to see her go, its because seeing my little 4 year old cry over her made me die inside a little. I hope he isn't traumatized for life. I really don't want to be THAT mom.

Also, the time has come for me to turn off my 7:00 a.m. alarm set for Thursdays. That's right folks, I don't have to work tomorrow. Or for awhile. My maternity leave starts now. But lucky for you I have lots of trashy stories saved up. You just wait.
