Flashback Friday

This was the halloween right before I got pregnant with Jonathan. It was a "costume party" and my cousin was the cowardly lion. She tried at least. Not the best picture of us but it was good times.

Do you ever have moments that it just hits you how unbelievably important every second of your life is? Every little smile, hug, kiss, hello, goodbye, tantrum, and laugh is sooo important. Do you ever sit back and think "Hmm I am so glad that I got to experience that?"

I read a lot of blogs. I find myself glued to the ones where someone has gone through something I can not and do not ever want to imagine, and that person still has faith.

I am not sure what made me want to write about this today but I know that I can honestly say that I am so thankful for every thing that happens in my life. There are good times, bad times, ok times, and times that just seem unbearable. But I would not trade it in for anything. I know I complain about stress and irritation, but in reality I am thankful that I am here to experience it.

There is so much in life that we take for granted. We never know when our last breath, kiss, hug, smile, "I love you", or just a simple gesture is. At any given moment it can all be taken from us...

As I sit here and stare at my clock it says 11:11. Time to make a wish. All I wish for is one more second to spend with the ones I love. If I get that, then I have nothing to be unsatisfied about.

9 Weekends left...

WooHoo! Another weekend down... 9 more to go! Yep thats right... NINE more weekends until I said "I do" to the man I love.

Truly I can't wait. I know I complain a lot about the wedding planning but that's because I always wanted something small. His family would have none of that of course but I know that it will be so worth it in the end. I can't wait to walk down the aisle to him and see his smiling face... I get butterflies thinking about it.

Speaking of walking... I got my shoes this weekend and I must say I LUFF them! I mean they are the OH MY GAWD kind of cuteness I needed to give me a pick me up... and the crazy thing?? They were only $20! I am so serious! the lady bought them for her wedding but they were too tall for her short little hubby so she had them still in the wrapping plastic and box. I thought I was going to pass out when I saw them and she told me the price... I will post a pic once I get home!

We still have a TON left to do but ya know what... It is Oh So worth it! I mean I get to marry this guy...

Lol that happens to be one of our engagement pictures by my lovely Aunt... yep he was tossing me in the river... But seriously he loves me. I promise!
When I told him we were 10 weeks away the look on his face was priceless. I have seen many men act so nervous about their weddings. But nope not my love, he was all smiles and excitement. I could tell he truly is happy. There are no doubts, reservations, confusion, or second thoughts. I am so ready to be married!

Ok enough sappy stuff... My little man and I recently had our first run in with Chipotle. Brandon has been raving about this place for umm yea well forever. I never liked it after the first time I went a long time ago... I think I ate a PIECE of rice and hated it... So I tried it again this weekend and this is Jonathan's reaction :

then we wen to the pool and he apparently had to pee:

And this is why I thank God everyday that I wakeup and get to spend it with the ones I love.

MY wedding dress.

Here is my wedding dress. This is actually my second dress as my first one was destroyed by my cat... When I tried my first gown on no one cried but I loved it. When I went shopping for this one... My mom cried. Like a baby. I did too. This is the day that I picked it up and I was looking at the train as my friend was taking the picture...

Flashback Friday

This was my senior prom picture with my ex S you know the one I posted about here. Needless to say this was at the better time in our relationship... this was in 2004.

Potty time

Why does potty training have to be so difficult?

Seriously. Jonathan has been telling us lately when he has to go pee. We take him to the potty and he goes no problem. He started this himself we didn't try to do it... But now he takes his diaper off. He has done it several times in the past week. Last week he made a horrible mess of it and I was too dumbfounded to even think about what to do. Brandon just found him taking his diaper off again.

I need tips on what to do at this stage? I mean he can't talk very well yet so we don't have that communication but he does show us when he has to go... I just feel a little lost.

Ok thats! It is absolutely ridiculous the crap the you go through planning a wedding! On top of school and work, and potty training. Actually Jonathan started on his own. He woke us up because he wanted to go in the middle of the night and has done so a few more nights this week.

But anyways...

My bridesmaids are driving me nuts! Seriously! First they couldn't choose any dresses then when they finally did my sister wouldn't get her butt on board and order her dress. Now the color THEY picked out... THEY don't like! It is driving me nuts... Seriously!!!!! Oh and I found a new product I L~O~V~E

YUP! I am totally ADDICTED to this stuff. Seriously. It makes my eyelashes absolutely GORGEOUS!
