This is just a random post about a few of my favorite things as of late.

This lip stick. Seriously it feels great on your lips, is bright, and in my case, let's me wear less makeup. I have in Lollipop and Tutti frutti.

Essie no chip polish. This stuff works.

Shea Moisture coconut hair spray...LOVE. It makes my hair shine and not frizzy without a greasy feel. Added bonus: IT SMELLS AMAZING!!

And here are some things I've had my eye on that I want:

A pair of fake reading glasses. Is that weird? I believe in the power of an accessory. So I may be getting these :)

I've been on the look out for a good maxi dress. I don't want one that will cling..because let's face it, when it gets hot no one wants a cotton dress sticking to the bum..not attractive. So I like this one but still on the look out.

So that's it for now. Thought I'd share. Happy Friday to you all!!

7 months.

7 months. Wow. As I write  this I can't believe I am a Mom to a almost crawling baby. 

Milestones: Annie is eating all stage 2 foods like a champ. She will now eat peas and green beans if she is really hungry. Meaning, I almost starve her before I plan on giving her peas for dinner. Can't you tell? She looks like a starving baby to me.

I kid. I kid.

Annie has started to go from the sitting position to reaching out to a toy in front of her and  getting herself into the crawling position. She then splats (word?) down on her belly. She often pushes back or sideways. No forward movement has been detected.

Annie has also rolled over TWICE in the last month. She has no interest in rolling over. I suspect she will be crawling before she rolls over multiple times.

She knaws on everything and still no teeth. She still drools like a champ. Those are the biggies.

We love you miss Annie!! Happy 7 months :)

Can you tell she already likes to play dress up?


Annie had her first Easter!! It was very busy so I failed to get a lot of pictures. Enjoy!!


Well I have some catching up to do. First up:

Aril 1st. I ran my second Half-Marathon. It was much better than the first. My little sister, Jessica, ran with me (bless her, I'm much slower than her) and we finished 5 minutes faster than my last time and we ran the ENTIRE thing (except for a bathroom stop and a few water breaks).

I am proud of myself, ran this 6 months after I had Annie.

What's funny about this picture. I look like a sloth and a most certainly felt like a sloth.


Not sure why I'm holding Annie up like she is my prize...but she is. I love her and am very proud that she is my daughter.

our avenger.

Not sure if I've made it clear on here but Ryan is a huge comic book fan. Therefore, he knows his stuff concerning any movie that comes out that is comic book related. We own and love Iron Man (1 & 2), Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, etc. As you may know, a new movie is coming out this year with ALL of our favorite characters; this movie is going to be called The Avengers.

Needless to say, we are VERY excited therefore, Annie is very is excited. So in honor of our love for The Avengers I had to get Annie this shirt. She loves it. Wish it came in my size :)

Please excuse the messy bed :) We don't get the chance to make it every day!!
