Today Cambri told me she doesn't like our new house and that she wants to live in Hawaii instead. For once my 3 year old and I totally agree on something:) I am curious as to what Hawaii looks like and means to her since she has never been there.

Cam also repeatedly told our friends that had stopped by for a few minutes that she wanted them to go home. We are still working on our manners around here.

It is 10pm and I should be getting ready for bed but this is my prime time for getting stuff done around the house so I am off to work on some DIY projects!

My new hobby...

I have a new obsession. I am in love with Pinterest. If you haven't heard of it you must check it out. But beward cause it is addicting. Along with this new found love I also am addicted to interior design blogs. Here are some of my favorites...

There are more but I can't think of them right now. I am doing my best to figure out a way to make my home look pretty...even on a very tight budget. I will not be showing any pictures right now because my home does not look pretty...yet. I have a billion DIY projects on my list so progress is slow moving to say the least. Right now I am painting a bed for Cambri and painting all the oak trim in our house. I want it to be white and so far it is looking fantastic, but it will take me F-O-R-E-V-E-R to complete.

Do you have any fun blogs you want to share?

Family Pictures 2011

We got our pictures taken by Melissa Burnett Photography in Utah right before moving to Ohio. I am really happy with the way they turned out. Taking pictures of my girls is really challenging because Sadie doesn't sit still and Cambri doesn't like to have her picture taken. Considering this these pictures are way better than I could have ever expected.

If you compare this to our engagement photo 5 1/2 years ago we have changed a lot! We are getting old.

My Babes are Growing up too Fast!

I am way behind on this post. But that is pretty much the story of my life right now....boxes to unpack, pictures to hang, walls to paint, yard to manage. Welcome to home ownership right? Life has been great. Just busy.

June 4th was Cam Bam's 3rd b-day. Nate and I were actually in Hawaii on her real bday so we celebrated just a few days late. It was all about Little Einsteins this year. Cam was set on getting a little rocket ship toy and cake. One problem. Two problems actually. How in the world was I suppose to make a rocket ship cake and even bigger problem...the rocket ship she wanted is no longer sold in stores. You can find it on ebay new for $300. Really??!!! Who pays $300 for a toy? Not this momma. Lucky for us our good friends the Pluids had one they were willing to give us for free. Pluids you are amazing. You saved our little one from a broken heart. And her heart would have been broken had she not gotten her rocket ship.

And for the cake, I found an online tutorial to make the rocket ship. I love that there are so many talented people willing to share all their crafty skills on the web.

The celebrations were actually pretty low key. Cam opened presents, ate cake and played with her new toys. She was in heaven.

How would I describe my little 3 year old...




-Cuddle Bug


-A little bit naughty...okay a lot bit naughty but I still love her



Cam loves to read books, have her back tickled before going to bed, tease Sadie, play make believe all day (usually its Dora or Belle), eat a bowl of cereal before going to bed every night, walk on her toes, and ask every "why" question she possibly can. I am trying my best to figure out the way her little brain works. She is so like me in so many ways. I think this is what drives me most crazy. We have entered a stage that is soooooooooo hard for me but I love my sweet baby girl.

And this little monkey... a little doll face. She just turned 9 months this last week. She is probably one of the easiest babies ever. I know all moms say that about their kids, but truly she is super easy going. She has been standing on her own for about a month now but isn't quite ready to take steps. She will destroy anything in her path and is always full of smiles. She has 2 teeth, loves to clap and just figured out how to wave (which she is very proud of). She likes to get into everything which pretty much gives Cambri an anxiety attack anytime Sadie is within 20 feet of her toys. Life is fun with these two around!

I love my baby girls so much!!!
