Welcome to the blog!  Here you'll learn more about me, my photography, my family & a little bit of everything in between!  Grab a cup of coffee (heavy with tasty cream because drinking it black is gross) and spend a little while getting to know me & my work more.


February 15, 2008

We had a good evening last night! Tyler gave me a sweet card & a starbucks gift card. I am ready for a good “kid free” night to just sit, read People magazine, and drink coffee. ahhh…sounds really good right about now!

I had my hair cut & colored…I had several inches cut off & it feels good! After I got home, we took the kids to Monicals for the heart shaped pizza. The kids really had fun…but the pizza really didn’t look much like a heart! We enjoyed our blob shaped pizza, though!

After we got home, we ran in the door to watch Lost. Is anyone else scratching their head and saying “Whoa! Didn’t see that one coming?!?” I guessed right on who the next person is on the Oceanic Six, but I sure didn’t expect the person at the end! I won’t say anything else if you guys haven’t watched it yet. And…I highly recommend renting the DVD series and watching seasons 1-3 and get caught up. Such an amazing show! My head is still trying to make sense of everything from last night…which I’m sure won’t really happen until 2010 when the show ends! I missed Survivor last night…any updates on what happened? I’m still not 100% sure that I’m going to be a diehard survivor fan this season. It still remains to be seen!

Speaking of fans…I LOVE American Idol and I’m really happy with the top 24! I am loving Brooke White. She’s my fave right now…I think. I’ll probably have a new fave next week! 🙂 I was just so glad that whiney Josiah didn’t make it to the top 24. And, while we’re talking reality shows…anyone else a project runway fan? I’m really excited to see their collections! I’m sure Christian’s will be “fierce!” His clothes are amazing! And, I’d love for Jillian to be my personal seamstress! I promise I’m not a TV Junkie! 🙂

Ok, I totally got off track with my tv shows…I meant to tell you about the rest of the night! About 1am, Mason crawls into our bed. Then, around 2, Millie starts sobbing and Tyler tries to snuggle with her in the papasan chair and she wasn’t having it. She wanted Mommy! So, he brings her to our bed…Tyler, Millie, me, and then Mason. Lucky me is sandwiched between 2 kids that can’t lay still when they are trying to sleep. They are kicking me, Millie is climbing on me, Mason starts giggling and finally at 2:45 & I had it. I told Tyler that he needs to take Mason back to his bed…and Mason FLIPPED out! He and Tyler went to lay down in his bed & I finally got Millie where she was almost asleep. Tyler walked into our room, which woke her up and she started sobbing again. He said that Mason wouldn’t sleep with him, so he’s just letting him try to calm down & fall asleep on his own. It’s like 3:30 at this point. I am ready to just jump in our van and drive far, far away. I finally got Millie to fall asleep & we all finally crashed a little after 4 this morning. Mason comes in our room at 6:20 saying “Mommy, I’m wet!” and my day began. I seriously feel like I’ve been hit by a Mack truck! It’s the feeling you have after working at a lock-in. I’m just hoping everyone takes long naps around here…and I may help myself to another cup of coffee! We are all going to bed early tonight (and don’t tell Tyler, but I’m thinking it’s his morning to get up with the kids tomorrow & I’m going to catch a few extra minutes of sleep!)

I was going through my photos the other night & I don’t think I’ve ever shared this one on here. Brooklyn is stunningly beautiful…and this picture just feels so whimsical! I love how it turned out! Pretty cool playground pic, huh?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! (and aren’t you proud of all of my blogging? I’m having a lot of fun doing it again!)

    great blogging *wink* and you guys look like you had a fun night… up until not being able to sleep, girl, I KNOW your pain. That happens way to often in this household! More often than I would’ve liked, at least.
    I stoped watching LOST after the second season, too much suspense. When they decide dto finish it up I will buy the DVDs and watch it all at the same time LOL
    I am doing that with Heroes too.
    and I am into “So you think you can dance” right now 🙂
    Hope you are having a GREAT weekend 🙂
