Yes Please

I want my house to feel like this, or some room in my house. I don't know, I love it and feel like a place I should live. I found it here.

Showing off her moves

We finally got a new camera that takes video, the Olympus Stylus 1050SW that can go underwater and fall from 5ft without breaking. This is our first attempt at trying it out. I need to figure out the light metering though.

Grosgrain: Swanki Hats GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

Thursday, April 23, 2009


This is what I woke up to last Tuesday. All I could do was call Ben (he was downstairs) and tell him to grab the camera. Apparently Jocelyn felt her skin was under moisturized.

*Side note Jocelyn tries to eat this lotion ALL the time, I tasted it. Personally I think it is kinda bland.

Ode to my glasses

Dear Glasses,

Please come home. I cannot find you anywhere and I am starting to get headaches. I promise to take better care of you in the future, clean you lenses more and keep you in the case instead of floating around my bag. We could be so happy together.

All my love,


PS If you know where Ben's are bring them too, the guy is practically blind without them.

After missing out on swimming in no less than 3 pools today; Ben and Jocelyn decided to take matters into their own hands.

What I am thinking

Alright ladies, I need your help. I am currently in the market for the following:

A double stroller: (has to be side by side and include a snack tray and be light weight. Jocelyn would not handle front to back) I like the Combi Twin.

An infant Car seat: (preferably that will attach to the stroller)

A baby wrap (I have a Bjorn which I love, but I am looking for something that will offer more protection to a new born) I am partial to the Maya Wrap.A diaper bag, I mean a purse with pockets and places for everything, that doesn't look like there are diapers in it. This is a Melie Bianco Double Zip tote. What do ya got? what works? what doesn't? and how much did it cost?


Easter was simply lovely...

The food...

The Flowers...

The Friends...

The Hunt...
The End.

What would you pay?

I have missed doing flowers so much! With the pregnancy, the moving, the additional roommates and the toddler, my flower business has been on hold for a little while. So I leaped at the chance to auction off an arrangement for the Young Men/Young Women Camp Silent Auction tonight.

I like it.

Jocelyn's big bump

Thursday afternoon Jocelyn and I were venturing from Michaels to Vons while on a quest for Chocolate Ice Cream. Anyone who has ever met my sweet girl, knows that she has spunk. Thus, riding in the seat with the seat belt in the grocery cart is a short lived screaming disaster. So rather than fight her I did what any irresponsible parent does and let her ride in the big part of the cart. There she stood quietly sucking her finger and wearing her monkey backpack. While strolling along the side walk between stores, one of my items fell out of my bag. I stopped the cart short to pick up my bag and sent my poor child into a head dive on to the cement, landing first on her forehead and flipping over to her back. SHE IS FINE. She cried hysterically for about 10 minutes. I held her tight in my arms, called Ben and decided that we should check out the emergency room just in case. Three hours later, the doctor determined that she was most likely fine but that I should keep her up two hours past her bedtime, and every few hours throughout the night just to be sure she doesn't have a concussion.
She is perfect... aside from the Gorbachev sized mark on her head. Like I said, the kid has spunk.

Easter Egg Hunt

My little girl is growing up so fast. Check her out last Easter...
...And this year. (There is a jelly bean in her mouth)

It is amazing how much she has grown in just one year.

Here are some more images from the FSH Egg Hunt this morning.

Joce and Zeek

Jocelyn and Zeek have a... "complicated" relationship. Here is a rare moment of them enjoying the same thing at the same time.

It was really sweet.
