It's Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies

I love acoustic music...and this happens to be one of my favorite songs! It's so beautiful. :) Just had to share it.

Thursday's Theme: Focus

Ok, so I realize that Stacy probably wanted us to post a "focused" or "un-focused" photo... but... me being the slight rule breaker that I am...cannot post such photo. Instead I give you photos of Adam "playing" daddy's game. Look at that focus!



Head over to Stacy's new home, and check out some more focus!

An Award :)

One Scrappy Chicklet has given me an award! I have to admit, I am a nerd, and I always get so excited when I get awards or when people just comment on my posts. I actually will call my hubby at work and say "I have 20 comments" or "someone likes me and gave me an award." All while, I am sure, his eyes are glazing over and he's thinking "why in the world did I marry this woman?" And then he remembers I have a nice.... sense of humor.

Anyway- for some reason Miss Chicklet believes I am Excellent!! :) Thanks, for thinking I am excellent and thanks to anyone who actually reads this blog! :) I appreciate it.

Anyway- I have the privilege to pass on this award to 10 other blogging buddies. So, here I go:

1) Cheeky- Her page is covered in Flamingos and pink. Need I say more?

2) Jennifer- This woman puts Martha Stewart to shame! Her crafts and ideas are SO cute! Plus, she just a sweet lady and I love reading her posts! (and while she has already received this, it wasn't from me...soooo there)

3) Sassy- I love her. She makes me laugh, with her posts, daily. Plus she always comments on my fair skin and youthful look- I love her even more when she says that. ha ha.

4) Sarah- She loves her boys as much as I love mine. She has a bread machine, I slightly envy, and I am sure she's eating nice warm bread right now. sigh. :)

5) Kim- I've not been reading her blog long, but I like her a lot. She takes great photos and has the cutest little nephews and niece!

6) Kelly- I love reading this blog. Plus, she is up for some blogging awards-- GO VOTE! :)

7) Beth- Another blog I have not been reading long, but one I've really enjoyed reading! Something about this mommy is just so special. She is one I would love to know in person! :)

8) Bradley- This is one of my favorite blogs to read. A stay at home papa with one of the cutest little guys I ever saw!

9) Arizaphale- I just love this woman. Seriously, if I ever make to Aussie one day, I am searching her out. And I have a feeling she'd let me :)

10) Kim- Not only are Will and Lauren super cute, this mommy is spunky and fun! She takes great photos and tells great stories! Great blog to read! :)


Whew. I wish I could give out more! I love all of my blogging buddies. So if you're reading this, and I didn't mention you, don't worry... I love you! :)

I-pods, TVs, and Terminators...AMEN!

Technology, technology, technology! I believe it is taking over the world... seriously, have you seen The Terminator? I depend so much on my computer and my cell phone, my i-pod, my television, my microwave, my DVR...etc. etc. etc.

So, this little cartoon is for my hubby. He doesn't use a normal Bible, anymore... oh no... he takes his Blackberry to church and uses an ONLINE Bible. sigh. Who needs the Holy Word in print? Not my hubby. SO what happens when he forgets to charge his precious Blackberry or can't get online? Oh yes... he asks to see my IN PRINT Bible. Thank goodness I still live in the stone age, with some things. hahaha. Well, kinda... I don't have the original on slab Bible... hahha :)

Anyway- I'm not sure why I posted this today. I guess it's to go along with my last post . I think I am feeling very materialistic, these days, and I don't want my kiddos growing up that way. There has to be a balance, I just haven't found it yet!

If anyone knows the secret.... do share! :)

Happy Hump Day, my friends!!!

Naked!


Yay! I am getting a new phone... So I won't feel naked anymore. Yes, I said it. Naked. Do you ever feel lost when you don't have something that you're used to having? For example: when I don't wear my rings (only while doing dishes and showering), I feel naked; when I don't carry a purse, I feel naked; when I have no make-up on, I feel naked; when I don't have the kids with me, I feel naked...etc. etc. etc. I've also wondered if these things that "cover" me are too important in my life. Why in the world should I be so dependent on my make-up, cellphone, and purse? I feel like, many times, I focus on all the wrong things in my life. Why can't I focus more on my relationship with God, my family, my kids, or my friends? Why must THINGS be so important to me? I know, I know, that's the way of the world, but I should be living in the world... I shouldn't be of the world.

I wonder if this is how Adam and Eve felt? Life was so perfect for them; they had it all! They didn't have to worry about what they looked like, they ran around naked, they ate what they wanted, they were P E R F E C T. And then one THING got in the way of their perfect situation and covered their lives with sin.

I have way more than one thing that is covering my life with sin... Maybe I need to re-think what makes me feel clothed and throw out the things that make me feel naked?

How about you? What makes you feel naked?

Best Shot Monday

I didn't take a ton of photos last week (gasp!) but here are a couple I love:

Sitting Matthew- he doesn't need mommy's help at all anymore. sigh.


I know this is blurry, but isn't his face so cute??

As always, head to Tracey's to see more best shots!

Things I Recommend

Dawn had this on her blog, and well.... I just had to borrow the idea! Thanks Dawn... GREAT idea!

Music- I listen to random music, but these two CDs are amongst my favs:

Family Force 5- Get CRUNKED. I'm a LUV Addict. L.O.V.E

(My sibs will appreciate this one: hardcore Christian punk band)

We will be seeing them on Feb 14th! woo!



Maroon 5- I think I have a thing for *5s*


Kid Show- As some of you know, I am pretty strict with Adam's T.V. watching. However, there are shows out there that REALLY are good for kids to watch. And, well, since Matthew has come along he watches a tad bit more TV than before.

Word World on PBS- Bean got us into this one! I love this show. It is so educational, and cute to boot!


Website- Swango I love a good deal. This website is AMAZING! It is a clothing swapping site. That's right- swapping of clothing. Ive not yet posted anything or received anything, but I plan on working on that this week.


Clothing Item-
Steve Madden Flats. I don't own this exact pair, but it's pretty close. These shoes are GREAT! You can wear them in the summer with shorts or a skirt or in the winter with jeans. And they are SUPER comfortable. I actually found mine at a resale store, so they didn't cost nearly what they would in a department store. So, ladies, get thrifting! :)

Food Item- If you know me, you know that I am a foodie. I love to cook, I love to try new things, and I just love to eat!

Near East Products- I love this company! If you can catch sales, they sometimes go for $1 a box (and there are occasionally coupons on smartsource.com )
The Couscous is amazing and it only takes 5 minutes to make! Yum-O!


Cookbook- As I said in one of my memes I love cookbooks! I really do read them like novels. My newest book is by Curtis Stone (of Take home Chef on TLC), and it's called, Cooking with Curtis: Easy, Everyday and Adventurous Recipes for the Home Cook. It has really classy ideas, but easy to make and affordable. Check it out! :) Plus, he's a pretty cute little Aussie!! ;)


Well, that's all for this edition of Things I Recommend. I think I might do this weekly or monthly; it was a lot of fun! Enjoy! :)

Our celebrity Look-alikes

http://www.myheritage.comcollage




So...

I
Married....



Uma and Joey sittin' in a tree... ha ha ha.

Weekly Wrap

Sigh. We made it through the week. We will be spending the day with my sister and her kiddo (well, kiddos...since she's with child (only 4 more WEEKS!!)), and Andy will be home around 2 or 3! :) YAY!

1) Adam and I made a "Welcome Home Daddy" sign tonight. We actually went to Walgreens in the 14 degree weather to get the supplies. Sigh.

2) Adam has started pretty fiercely with his terrible twos! We've had numerous meltdowns and many time outs, this week.

3) I started my classes, this week. I am IN LOVE with my World Religions class.... Stay tuned for a new BLOG that goes along with that class. OH YES- A BLOG!!! WOO! :)

4) Kellan said I had too much time on my hands, because I was taking pics of myself (I know she was joking with me), but seriously... Every so often I just get in the mood to look pretty and capture it! haha. Plus, I had to put something on the blog about me, for Andy to read. As much as he loves his kids.... he wants to see pics of ME too! :)

5) No new progress with Matthew. I think we're going to go straight to a specialist. I am sick of running around in circles with our doc. I don't want my baby to suffer, anymore!

6) Blogger is being silly and will not post photos :( In this spot would have been an adorable photo of Matthew.

7) Everything is chapped and dry. I highly DISLIKE winter!

8) Tomorrow- we shall have Chipotle, to celebrate Andy being home. Yay for not cooking dinner!

9) Hmm apparently the word "chipotle" is not in the computer's dictionary... when I right clicked on it to see if I had really spelled the word wrong, the first word in the list is "Chippendale" !! HA HA HA. Chippendales might be spicy, like chipotles.... but.... clearly NOT the same thing! (Forgive me to my two mommies who read my blog... I don't really know what Chippendales are... I am innocent, I promise :) )

10) I seriously need sleep.

HAPPY WEEKEND!! HAPPY WEEKEND!!

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Self-Portrait Fun

Umm the only full length mirror is in Adam's room... ha ha ha. I should change that.

The things I do while the kids are sleeping......




How do you like my monkey and elephant towels in the back??? ;) haha

I drive... my perty Jeep. My lovvvve mobile.

I listen.... to my i-pod, a lot.

I wish... I had hot chocolate.

I am.... Brittany, nice to meet you.

I regret.... nothing

Adam Lightyear


Adam's most recent potty chart prize was this Buzz Lightyear outfit from the Disney Store. Is it just me or does he look REALLY old in this photo?

Oh... best part of this outfit: it was marked from $39.50... to.... $5.00!!!!

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

Day 2

Not so bad, today. We stayed home; it was cold and snowy and I didn't feel like trying to bundle the boys and leave the house. However, mommy got out a little tonight (yay!). Pa came over so that I could go to Bible Study (one of my new year goals!). It was great to get out and fellowship with some amazing women.

We then talked to daddy, via webcam, and Daddy and Adam played peek-a-boo... Sigh. Andy still thinks they may have to stay through Friday. I am praying that isn't the case. I miss him :(... I miss him a lot. :(


ALSO-

I cannot believe Heath Ledger is dead! Only 3 years older than I am, has a two year old... and he's gone. It's such a shame. His beautiful daughter will never get to know her father, and that is just so sad to me.

Anyway- it's late... and I need to get to sleep!

I got an award! :)


My Bloggy friend Sassy has given me an award and I couldn't be happier to accept it! :) I might actually take her up on the whole "spit shining" of the award ;) haha Thanks Sassy!!!

Psst. Everyone go visit this girlie! She's a hoot! :)

An Adam Conversation

(Wipes his hands on my arm)

A: ::laughing:: Mommy's a napkin!

Me: I am not a napkin, you little turkey!

A: I not a turkey!

Me: Well, if I am a napkin then you are a turkey. (Not sure why my logic went there!)

A: ::boggle boggle:: (that's how he gobbles) Mommy white. Mommy a napkin!

So apparently the fact that my skin is pasty white, makes me a napkin. sigh.

Various things

Matthew at 6 Months


Adam at 6 Months


Is it just me or is it amazing to see how siblings look alike? It's just insane! Scary thing... the shirt Adam has on, Matthew wore today! ah!


Day 1- All byyyyy myself, alllll by myyyself, don't wanna be allll by myself ANYMOREEEE.

Sorry, had to break out in song, for a minute! So I've made it past day 1. I dropped Andy off at work (way early!- thank goodness my little sisters could come and stay with the us, so the boys didn't have to get up early!!), came home, saw the sunrise, took everyone to the mall, came home, made dinner, had a dinner party with my daddy, my step-mom and my g-ma, had a video conference with Andy!

Now... I need to try to sleep...alone...well, not alone... I have a cat and dog in bed with me... and I would almost guarantee a certain 2 year old, eventually.

Happy Monday, everyone!

BSM: Matthew

I am so in love with this little man...

Round 2. Matthew. About five times, since noon. Oh what a weekend!

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Oh, Adam.

When I dressed Adam, this morning, he had on this cute blue shirt and blue jeans... By noon, this is what he had on (note the "Mickey Mouse" hand he has, too):


OH, Adam. What would I do without you in my life? :)

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Thursday's Theme: Winter

In Winter, wear Mommy's coat (while wearing shorts)....


Visit The Land of K.A. for more TTs! :)

Matthew's 6 Month Appointment

Today was busy. Adam is sick (the cold I had last week is now Adam's cold), we had to miss playgroup, and Matthew had his 6 months appointment, today. I can't wait for spring!!!

Anyway... here's how Matthew is growing (or not really growing in his case):

- 25 1/4 inches (only 10th %tile... my poor short baby!)
- 16 lbs 9 oz. (25th %tile)
- I don't remember his head circumference, but I remember it was 50th %tile

He also sat up for awhile, for the doctor; he showed her how he likes to crawl backwards, and he hopped on his hands and knees (which was CRAZY because I have never seen him hop before). He also flirted and batted his big ol' eyes at her, it was cute.

They also are putting him on the hypoallergenic formula, for his excema. Adam was on this formula, too, and all I remember about it is that it smells terrible and costs a fortune! GAH! Oh well, whatever needs to be done to help my bubba feel better! :)

Anyway- he's healthy and happy :) And I CANNOT BELIEVE HE IS 6 MONTHS OLD! ahh!

Monday, January 14, 2008

Today is in the toilet...literally.

Scene: It's noon and the boys have been in bed for 20 minutes, already. Does that tell you the kind of day we've had? It's been Monday, that's for sure. Matthew went down, for his morning nap, around 11:00. Mommy decided to take a shower (after already doing three loads of laundry, cleaned the bathroom, mopped all floors, vacuumed entire house, and dressed two boys for the day). I locked Adam in the bathroom, with me, with a pile of books. Stood in the warm shower and just enjoyed the warmth. When all of the sudden I hear the toilet flushing. OH NO! I look out and see this:

Oh yes, that is about 1/4 of the roll of toilet paper. Mind you.... I had just put on a megaroll... so 1/4 of a megaroll! AHH! That was not fun to fish out of the toilet, let me tell you.

We then went on to spill an entire container of yogurt on the floor and a chase around the house to obtain mommy's nail polish back. Then... it was bedtime, before mommy went insane.

Does anyone have a martini for me??? :)

I'm going to go blow dry my hair. sigh.

Sunday, January 13, 2008

BSM

As always, I have two shots... But this week, one shot is of Matthew and one is of Sami (the cat). I know...I know... I said she'd never set foot outside of the house ever again- but I was watching her and she came in when we did! haha. I was proud of the Sami photo; I think I got a really cool angle and shot. I also have been learning Photoshop, and tried to tinker with the Sami picture a little. And Matthew- well, he's just REALLY cute! :)


Happy Monday, everyone! Head over to Mother May I for more Best Shot Monday Photos!

Weekly Wrap

1) Big weekend in our house! Adam has filled 2 (and 1/4) potty charts; we are taking him to see the new Veggie Tales movie tomorrow as his reward. He's very excited to see the "really big TV"! haha.

2) Being stuck in the house, due to potty training, sucks. He forgets to tell me he has to potty if we are out and about, so homebound we are.

3) We found out this week that Andy is going out of town for 4 days (Jan 21-24). I am freaking out a little. shh...don't tell him. We knew he'd have to travel, once he graduated, but I was hoping they would overlook him. If I am loopy that week, you will know why! Who wants to keep me company???? :)

4) We also found out that we can dedicate Matthew, at church, January 27th! I am hoping we can get a little party together, before then, like we did for Adam. I've decided much less people, this time. Adam's party was huge. I'm too tired for huge, this time. Is that terrible?

5) I've been trying to learn how to work my camera better. I think my photos are getting better. Trying to learn how to focus and how to get the best angles. It's fun!

6) Classes start in three weeks. BLAH!

7) I am currently very addicted to CSI (original...not the city ones). I could watch this show ALL day and still not have enough of it. It's so interesting.

8) Sore throat and sinus drainage = crappy feeling mommy.

9) New layout. Good or bad? I think I want to add the name of my blog somewhere. I was just glad to figure out the html to edit the template.

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!

Recipe: Banana Bread

So I came up with this super easy, good for you, banana bread recipe. I've made it twice and Andy even likes it- so it must be good, right? :) (OH! And I am finally learning how to use my camera... I know... it's taken me awhile, but some of these pics, I am quite proud of!)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup applesauce

1 cup white sugar (I used splenda- just make sure to follow the instructions on the box as to how much is equal to 1 cup granulate sugar)

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 ripe bananas (I actually freeze bananas once they are ripe- so I just used three of my blackened bananas)

Directions:



1) Preheat oven to 325 F (165 C). Lightly grease an 8x4 loaf pan.

2) Blend together the sugar and applesauce, until creamy.

3) Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt.

4) Add bananas. Blend until well mixed.



5) Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.




ENJOY! :)

Happy 6 Months, Matthew!!


Dear Littlest Bubba-

Oh, Matthew. The joy you've brought to our lives is beyond measure! You are a unique little man, with quite the personality. You like to charm, you like to flirt, and you are quite the lover. I am so proud to call you son.

This last month has been interesting. You had a nasty virus and issues with your allergies, but even with those diversions you managed to have kept a smile on your sweet little face.

You are trying SO hard to crawl! I think we may only have a couple of weeks left until you make your moves. You like to sit on your knees and rock back and forth. And best of all, you crawl backwards! Mommy loves to watch you scoot yourself backwards; you're always so proud of yourself for moving.

Matthew, you are a blessing to our lives and we can't wait to see you grow MORE and MORE!

Love always-
Mommy and Daddy (and Adam, too) :)

No Coats.... in January!!!!!

Here is how we spent about an hour of our morning.... outside, without coats! Do you believe it?
It's mid-January and currently 64 degrees outside! Adam loved being able to ride his new bike, outside, however!! :) And mommy enjoyed the breeze in her hair and the sun on her face.


There is a storm coming, however. Look at the trees... EEK!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!
