So today was the last of my going blonde adventure! Now I am the blonde I want to be!! This was the third time I have had to get it done. The first time,lady screwed up my hair BIG TIME!!! She said she could fix it, but I never went back!! learned my lesson!! So I gave my friends stylist a call and got an appt for the next day (last wed.) She was awesome!! I am hooked!! Only problem it cost me $115 to fix the last girls mistake! GRRR!! Although it wasn't the blonde I wanted, it still looked good. She said she would fix it free of charge! So today was the day and I think it looks awesome!!!
This is not a flattering picture of me, but I had to show you the hair color!!!

Teeny Bopper

So recently my little girl has been introduced to Justin Bieber

...And now she runs around the house either singing "Baby Baby Baby" or "Justin Bieber"!!! I never thought my four year old would be loving some 15 yr old boy!! She is so funny, I have to get her on video singing along to his songs!

At just the right time

After an hour of nursing and cuddling I finally got Weston to sleep last night! Score! So I start getting ready for bed, to join my hubby for some cuddling!! Double Score! As I am brushing my teeth, Weston wakes up:: Major bummer!
 So I finish hoping he will just cry himself back to sleep..Not a chance his crying gets LOUDER and more desperate for someone to come and pick him up. And of course mommy caves and goes to pick him up... I swear he has an on/off switch
ON when he is not being held...OFF as soon as you pick him up!! WTH?! 
So I go and lay on the couch with him for about another ten minutes, until I think it is safe to put him to bed again! So as quietly, and as gently as I can I lay him down in his bed...and he doesn't wake. 
AWESOME! I did it!! 
I hurry to bed! Lay down and cuddle with my hubby, I am starting to fall asleep and no sooner do I hear Weston start to cry...
is what I am desperately thinking! 
But to no avail, so once again he gets picked up, this time by daddy. Who more then willingly passes him over to me in our bed. I calm this little monster down and put him back to bed, this time I wrap his blanket around him a little tighter hoping it will make him feel like he is being held. It worked until 3am! and then again until 8:30 this morning. I found my little monster up in his bed playing with his binkie! 
You got to LoVe parenthood and all the awesomeness that comes with it! They always wake up at just the right moment!

2nd cup of joe

I sooo needed an extra cup of coffee this morning. It is my drug of choice. I do not have a morning without it, sometimes I can't even function without it! 
I think I am a functioning coffee-holic!! 
Now, what has been happening this week...Weston is sleeping better...only waking once or twice a night to nurse. I swear my son is a milk-aholic. He would rather have the boob then anything else.
Briley has been over at her friends house most this week. 
 Justin wanted to buy this  HUGE Dodge mega cab diesel with a lift and BIG off-road tires. But I think he found something better in AZ.
I am procrastinating cleaning the house, we have someone coming to look at it tonight.
Our landlord still sucks!
Our make shift garden is growing!!!
These are our green beans! and tomatoes!
our green onions and radishes 
Brileys pansies and fuzzy face sunflowers!!
Justin's Jalapenos!
It is so fun to be growing our own vegetables!! I hope they all grow well and we can eat them!! 
Once we get into our new place they will be ready to go outside! I cant wait, we all are very excited! I hope that growing our own veggies will help Briley try some new things, like tomatoes!! She will not eat them now..so well see what happens with growing our own!

Its a Wonderful Life

I love my family. They are everything to me, and I couldn't have asked for a better one!!
I snapped some pictures of daddy playing with the kiddos. I just love moments like that. They love their father, and I love when they get a chance to play with him!!
It made me think about how wonderful this life is. We shouldn't take anything for granted, and we should cherish every moment that we have with the ones we love!
Weston is already learning how to wrestle with dad!!
Justin can't wait till he is a little older and can really play with him, rough housing and what not!!
He is super excited to throw a football with him!
Little Miss Briley is watching her cartoons minding her own business!! 
I love my family, they are perfect in every way to me! We have our ups and downs, but the UPS out weigh the downs by far!!

It has been so BEAuttiful outside, I just had to take the kids out for a stroll!! Briley has been dying to ride her bike all winter, and now finally its nice enough to get out there!!! I never thought when it was 50 outside I would be in a tank top and shorts!! 
The snow is gone in our neighborhood...FINALLY!! 
I love this time of year. It isn't too cold, and not too hot.
My handsome lil man enjoyed his ride...can't you tell? :)
Briley got a ouchy, and so we had to cut our outing short. Her foot slipped on her peddle and she cut her heal. But she was such a tough girl, and rode it out!! 
 But as soon as we got home she went into our room and woke up her daddy to tell/show him what happened. She asked me for a princess band-aid...Snow White to be exact. And thats what she got!!
Hope you all have a great day!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Happy St. Patty's Day!!! We are having so much fun! Woke up, and of course we weren't wearing our green yet...so daddy pinched us..OUCH!! So we hurried and got ready for the day! 
My Happy little monster after his nap!!!
Here we are!! "Now no one can pinch us mom" Briley says!! Absolutely right sweetheart!
Justin went to work so I can make corned beef and cabbage tonight!! (he hates it...I LOVE it!!) So I only make it when he is not going to be home for dinner!
Here is the bow Robyn made the princess! How stinkin' adorable!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and hope you are all wearing green!!!

My heart is aching. My friend for many years went into labor last night, I wished her luck and couldn't wait to see pictures. As the day went on I hadn't heard anything so I asked her mom if she had heard anything. Nothing...then not long after I learned that their little boy passed away. He came into this world without a heartbeat, they tried to revive him, got a heartbeat but he still was not breathing. I am so sad. I am at a loss of words. I can't even imagine the pain she is going through. I can't describe how I am feeling. I found a little poem that I thought was nice, and thought I would share it with you all:::

God's Rarest Breed

Angel, Little wonder
Little Promise, Little Boy
We didn't get to love on you
Or let you bring us joy

Our arms are filled with emptiness
Our hearts are filled with pain
We search for all the answers
Our response is only rain
He called for you to fill a need
We know that you'll succeed
You are special in this universe
You are God's Rarest Breed
A gift to let the stars shine bright
To help each of us see His Light
They can't tell us about the power of love
Cuz you were sent for from far Above
How were we to know
When we were planting your tiny seed
How important it was for you to grow
Into God's Rarest Breed
I found this poem here.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Arsenault family, and with the McGuire family. I love you guys. 

Were MOVING!!!

I am so excited to tell you were moving out of the house we are in now, to a newer, nicer, all around better house!!
The house were in now is OLD, BIG..but small ( I will explain later) and has no lawn (like our landlords said they would put in, but never did!!!
So how is this house big yet small...Its a five bedroom 2 bath. Its about 1600 sq. ft. BUT the rooms are TINY there is no storage, no counter space in the bathroom its one of those stand alone sinks. In the kitchen there is no pantry, no counter or cupboard space, we have to push the table against the wall when we are not using it so we can walk in the kitchen. (half our kitchen appliances are still in boxes because there is no room for them!) There is only room for one person in the kitchen or else you are bumping elbows with the other person. The downstairs bathroom is bigger then the "master" bathroom. The living room is small and cut off from the other rooms (not an open layout, which I hate!) we couldn't use our coffee table in here because there would be no room to get around it! So instead its a TV stand. 
Its just not a good house unless you could tear it all down and build a new house in its spot!!
Our landlord is far from great. She is nosey, beyond what they should be! She and her husband are getting a divorce so she wants us to be the middle men and talk to him about things, instead of her just calling him!! She calls me and complains about her soon to be ex, and talks about their divorce to me. I could care less about what is going on between you two, please don't tell me about it! She complains about the yard, there is nothing but dirt and weeds (which we have puller numerous times!!) They told us before we moved in that they would be putting grass in...That never happened! But yet she wants us to do something about the yard! Honey thats your job! We are to care for LANDSCAPED areas....we took care of the fruit trees (the fruit was YUMMY) we pulled weeds but were done! If you are not going to stand by what you told us why should we keep pulling weeds every week!?!?
So enough with the ranting and raving. I am so stoked about our new place!! It has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths! big rooms. A PANTRY!! counter space, cupboard space...everything we do not have in this house!!
Its new (about 1-2 yrs old). It has a garage (which we don't have one now). Its beautiful, I love it!!!
Our property manager has said we can hang pictures (which we can't do here) so our house will become a home with our personalization!! 
We will be moving in around the 2-4th of April. And I just can't wait!!
