Because I just look *that* good...

This girl is by no means who I see when I look in the mirror every day, but damn she looks good!  I go through these phases where I think I look fabulous, and I really need to get myself back to that level.  I think I deserve it.

I've been working hard all my life to look this good, and I will flaunt it - in the most classy way possible.  No, ladies, not the most Klassy way...classy!


I must learn to keep this positive image of myself  I don't look as terrible as I think I see that I do in the mirror.  I look...really good, actually.

Top 3 "awww" moments of the week

3 -     Little Rocker grabbing the monkey stuffed animal that hangs from his wall light.  He wouldn't let go until Daddy walked him away from it.  Most. Adorable. Thing. Ever.

2 -     Little Rocker taking Daddy's thumb and putting it into his mouth.  He then proceeded to chew on Daddy's thumb for about 15 minutes.  ::swoon::

1 -     Little Rocker dancing to "Down" by Jay Sean, while sitting on Mommy's lap.  He flailed his little arms and moved all around.  He even got upset when the song was over.  Sooooo cute!

Dear Post-Pregnancy Body,

You are making me crazy.

Ok, ok.  You are losing the pregnancy weight, which I thank you for, and huge boobs can be fun, but FFS stop putting me through hell!!!  You tease me by dropping 30lbs in 4 weeks only to make me beg for the rest to come off.

Now that it is finally going away you decide that it's time to get rid of those fun pregnancy hormones.  Great.  Wait, no...not great.  The best way you can think of doing that is by causing me to break out more than I can handle.  WTF???

I do not appreciate looking like a high school kid.  For your information, I am a grown woman.  I do not appreciate your game, and I would like it to stop.  Please put my skin back the way you found it and think of some other to dispose of all those hormones.  How about, I'll pee them out.

That sounds good.  Please get on that.

The rules have changed...

I'm kind of missing my old life. Don't flame me. I love my life, my boy, and my man...but sometimes I want to be free. I want to be a young, carefree, college girl tearing it up with my girls on the weekend. Oh hell, weeknights too. Playing mommy is tiring and sometimes a night out would be fun. I miss my girlies and our good times. I miss no responsibilities.

Now life revolves around diaper duty and booby patrol.

The only time I can get in on the dance floor is with my little man. He's a fab dancer, by the way. Yesterday I put him in the Jumparoo for the first time...he went crazy. The concept of using his legs to bounce up and down hasn't quite got him yet, but I saw some definite smiles creeping up there. I can't wait to see him bouncing up a storm in that thing. He's a mover and a shaker for sure, just like his mommy, so I know he's going to love it.

Oh, speaking of diaper duty, my cousin had her beautiful baby boy yesterday...on my dad's birthday! He was a big boy - 8lbs 8oz, 20in long - what else is new? All our boys are huge at birth. We grow 'em big in my family. None smaller than 8lbs 5oz (I do believe) and usually much bigger than that. Anyway, now Little Rocker has not one but TWO little cousins. He better realize the role model that he's going to have to be. He already has so many cousins, and I'm really happy that most of them are just his age. The oldest is 6 (I think) and the youngest is 2 days. Wow.

I can't wait to meet you Baby C! Just tell your mommy to invite RJ, Little Rocker and me over. We're dying to see your new little face.

That's all for now. I'm beat. Actually, I think I'll go eat some dessert. What a nice way to enjoy my "me" time. :-)

I think I'll go to Boston...

It just wouldn't be the same without adding some pictures of the beautiful family. Here are some of my two loves and our fabulous friends.

Well, most of the time...


I think I'll start a new life...

Camera fun.

E & J's wedding was so beautiful that I had to take at least a few photos. J was one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen. Their happiness is strikingly obvious!

Here are a few favorites:


Doesn't it make you want some candy???

A wedding day throwback!

I was cleaning out my mom's computer, and I found all these collages I made of our wedding day. Since no one is looking at them now, I figured I'll "display" them here.

I am so excited for Little Rocker's very first road trip, and the reason couldn't be more awesome either. Eric and Juliana's wedding is going to be beautiful! We are mostly packed and ready to go...it's a lot more difficult that I expected packing for an infant. I realize that he's going to need a lot more clothing than just for the 4 days we'll be gone. We have to prepare to leaks and blow outs, afterall you never know when to expect one of those.

The little man has been a bit sick the last few days. I feel sooo sorry for him, but I just don't know what to do to make him feel better. I guess I'm doing all that I can: cuddling with him, warm and calming baths, rocking him to sleep (he'll nap for a while), lots of love and comfort. He doesn't have a fever, so I know we don't need to go to the doctor or anything. *sigh* I hope he feels better soon!

You Deserve This...

So thankful for the words you've kept spinning inside your head
Bottled up tightly and left for dead
Like I have

No time for real goodbyes
When all these lies shine in your eyes
Like you have

But someday, maybe, you'll be true
Someday real love will surely find you
Like I have

You'll think of us
And feel your heart drop
Your heart will stop
Like mine has

Holiday Picture Sneak Peak!

RJ and I took Little Rocker to have some Christmas card photos taken today! We decided to have these done at Sears Portrait because it's a lot cheaper than our professional photographer ($50 for 10 sheets) and we knew that we would need a lot of prints made.

The photos look awesome, the photographer was awesome, the Sears Portrait service was terrible! We will definitely NOT be going back there, but it was worth it for some inexpensive and great looking Christmas cards.
