Vacay interruption...

Our vacation is going so well! We really are having a wonderful time! It was great to be in Arizona for 8 days, and are loving Idaho as well! It's so nice to be with all our family, even if it's just for a short time! We sure do miss our little Daisy-poo, but will see her soon! Right now, we are soaking up all the Idaho time we can get!!

Here are some family pictures that my sweet friend Katie took from my side! We take family pictures with Andy's side on Saturday! :) 



The men in my life! 

Jackson and his boys! 

This little kid is just too much! he's absolutely amazing! 


He is so so smart!!

Confessions & Christmas!



Today, over on Leslie's blog it's Confessional Friday... link up to hear other ladies confessions! It's quite fun actually!

Here we go....

1.) I want a mani and pedi. not from just anyone, from the little Asian's in the mall... they do the BEST manis and pedis out of anyone! But... I'm trying to hold out because I know that I'm probably going to go with my mom and sisters in Arizona or in Idaho! hold out Randi. Hold out.

2.) My table has been covered in packing stuff since Sunday! I will be packed by this evening, mainly because I have no choice! haha!

3.) I am SO VERY excited for this vacation. It's a confession. Like, beyond excited... besides our wedding day and when Andy came home.. I'm not sure the last time I was THIS excited for something!!

4.) I love holding my husbands hand. Just sitting there holding hands is my favorite. I love that I get to grow old with that man :) He's amazing.

5.) I am VERY excited for some good Mexican food this week! mmm mmm mmmm!

6.) This year is the 20th anniversary of my first dad's death, it seems like it's another lifetime ago!

7.) Being married has made me understand my dad alot more! And to appreciate the things I didn't appreciate about him before. Love you dad!

8.) If you don't know me, the above 2 confessions probably confuse you... my dad died when I was 7, my mom married her high school sweetheart when I was 8... I was blessed enough to have 2 daddys in my life! :)

9.) I bought the "fancy" shampoo and conditioner Wednesday night and my hair feels amazing. I have been using the stuff on the shelf at Wal Mart, but I bought the Redkin one for color treated hair. I'm in love.

10.) I am so excited to introduce my husband to all of my extended family in Arizona TOMORROW!!!!! I even started crying a little on the way to work thinking I get to see them so soon! I haven't hugged my brother since before he was deployed! he's been home for 5 months!

and on that note.... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year....
I won't be blogging much because I'll be enjoying family, friends, and this gorgeous reort!



I'm dreaming of a .... no, nope I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas... I'm dreaming of THIS Christmas.... and this is exactly what we are going to get.... TOMORROW......

I'm going to swim in that heated pool...

slide down this slide...

enjoy this view...


and this sunset... oh how I love those Arizona sunsets!

I'm going to relax on that nice chair...

and swim in the pool....


and just soak up all the amazing quality time with my family!!!


See you next year, with lots and lots of vacation pictures!!

Happy Birthday, Mom!!!

"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been."
Happy Birthday to my MOM!
(I'm a day early.... I just wanted to post this so bad!!)

In my mind... a great mom is someone who....


teaches you how to love your brothers and sisters,

gives you away even when it's hard,

takes you on vacations,

get's you dressed...

tells you how pretty you are,

feeds you when you are hungry,

helps and supports you while you make your dreams come true....


teaches you how to be a friend...

makes your wishes come true...

holds you even when your bigger than she is,

spends quality time with you...

vacations with you...

takes you to your "hometown"...

loves company...

shows you how to be a great sister...

goes on movie dates with you...

drives with you accross the country...

takes you to your favorite singer's concert...

stands by you while you watch your life begin...

teaches you how to smile...

and always tells you she loves you and shows her support along the way!

The greatest compliment I ever received was when someone told me I reminded them of my mom.

Mom,

You are my best friend, my encourager, my hero, someone who I can ALWAYS go to and you won't ever judge me... my vacation buddy, but most of all one of the most important people in my life.

"I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always... as long as I'm living my mommy you'll be!"

See you in 3 days!
Love you!!


Merry Christmas from us!


We are not doing Christmas cards this year, mainly because we just sent out our wedding thank you's a few months ago, and I just didn't take the time to get the 3 of us out and take a picture! We are taking family pictures with both sides of our families on our vacation, so maybe Andy and I will take one together and then send out Happy New Year cards.... or maybe Happy 1 year of being married cards?? we'll see...

I LOVE getting cards tho, oh I love it! We have received 3 so far and they are all posted on our bulliton board in the kitchen! :) Thank you Katie, Amy and Amber!!! :) Y'all have such cute families!!

I was bored this morning... so I put an idea together of what we would do...  so here you go!
(I just used some random pics)...

I had to throw these in... these are from my works' Christmas party Saturday night.... :)
my hubby is silly.


Tonight the madness starts... we are going to Wal Mart to get dog food, bones, chew toys, trip stuff... then tomorrow we are cleaning and doing the laundry, the Friday finish packing and here we go!!!! I am beyond excited!! I can't wait to kiss my nephew and hug my brother who I haven't hugged in years!!! It's going to be amazing!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!!!

Jack Attack!

Hey.... we made it through Monday!!

We got to Skype with this cutie last night....



He was so stinkin cute! He had his little spoon and made sure his auntie and uncle got fed! It was adorable!! He even walked (with his momma's finger) to us from the other side of the room! He is getting so big! I can't wait to smother him in kisses on Saturday!! :)

I have tried and tried to flip these... they wont. ugh. so just turn your head a little....
(any tips?)

This is his little head about to pop up after he crawled to the computer! how cute!!

I haven't been in the Christmas spirit, so this morning I turned on some good ol' Mariah Carey... I think her Christmas album is the best ever! It worked, I'm feeling holly and jolly! :)





Have a great Tuesday!!
