Happy Birthday Micah

One year ago today at 12:29 pm I gave birth to our baby boy. Now he is a 24 pounder sitting up in his high chair enjoying a sweet delicious birthday donut. Happy Birthday Micah...we Love You!

Moms night out

Last night I went out to dinner to Johnny Carino's with my table from MOPS. If you haven't been there I totally recommend it...my lasagna was delicious :) We were there for almost 3 hours and the last ones to leave the restaurant. The conversations were entertaining, and probably only funny to those who have gone through labor and raise children. I am so thankful to be apart of MOPS, I have met some great friends.


Yesterday it was almost 1oo degrees out here...I was so happy Micah and I got invited to go swimming at a friends house. My friend Jena brought her boys Shane and James, and we enjoyed a nice afternoon in a nice cool pool. Micah loved the water...I was a happy mommy :)

Micah's 1st Birthday

Last night we celebrated Micah's 1st Birthday with family and friends. Micah didn't have a clue as to what was going on, but it was sure fun to see his reactions...especially to his cake!

11 months and 24 days....


Womens Retreat

Last weekend I went up to Twin Peaks in Lake Arrowhead on a womens retreat with my church. It was such an enjoyable time. It was great to connect with all the ladies, eat some yummy food, worship God, and simply just getting away....it was so refreshing and I am so blessed to be apart of such an encouraging group of women.

Visit with Sissy

My aunt Sissy came out to visit Micah and I from Tucson Arizona. It was so much fun to spend time with her and get her all to myself :) She is an awesome aunt and I am so blessed she would want to come out and visit. Micah took to her pretty quickly and she would often sing to him to make him happy when he got sad....it was so cute. It was actually the same song she would sing to me when I was a baby. We went to the park, out to dinner, lunch, bible study, walked through old town and even to Golds Gym which was a place I had never been before. It was so much fun...thank you Sissy for visiting!

Ive been tagged

i have been tagged by my sister Jenni, i have to list 25 things about my self. Here we go :)

1. I love Jesus...and I am so honored to be called His daughter.
2. I love watching my hubby interact with Micah.
3. I love to hear Micah's belly laugh and even when he makes his sad face and cries that's cute to.
4. I miss playing sports...but I know maybe later in life when my kids are older I will get to play with them...they better like soccer :)
5. I like to surf...and I hope also to I can do that with my kids someday.
6. I like the outdoors and prefer to be outside more then inside...but only if its not cold. I have C.E.S (cold easily syndrome)
7. Because of C.E.S. during the winter I take a warm bath almost every night.
8. I do eat dessert in the evenings about 90% of the time...preferably ice cream.
9. Golden spoon's small vanilla yogurt with Reeses peanut butter cup is one of my all time favorite desserts.
10. I take a walk just about everyday...although I am doing the mud run in June so I started to run...the hills along with Micah are killing me. I may just have to have my sister do it.
11. Being my little Micah's mother is the best job in the world.
12. I value my friendships and am so thankful for such great friends.
13. Lately I have been enjoying painting portraits...I really love landscapes...I think they make such beautiful paintings but they are something I find so difficult to paint...some day :)
14. I have been addicted to HGTV ever since we started looking for a home.
15. My favorite christian artist right now is Phil Whikam.
16. My favorite secular is John Mayer.
17. I love working with high school students...they love to talk and I love to listen.
18. I love it when my hubby talks or any time he's got something to Share...love you honey!
19. I was the captain of my high school volleyball team and sometimes I have dreams where I am on the court playing...I seriously don't want to wake up :)
20. Ever since I stayed home from work I have become a little bit of an anal neat freak...I used to not even care if the bed was made...now it would drive me crazy.
21. My favorite kind of movies are romantic comedies..."You've got mail" 50 first dates...they're Shane's favorite to so it usually works out when we want to rent something.
22. I love a good rack of baby back pork ribs smothered in BBQ sauce.
23. Coconut Shrimp as well with some kind of tropical dipping sauce.
24. I would love to someday go to Italy, Greece and Israel
25. I am living my dream job. 6 years ago when I was waiting tables at Claim Jumper a fellow employee asked me what my dream job would be. I told them I wanted to be a stay at home mom and possibly work from home doing some kind of art.

Ok...so if Kim, Emily and Shaina read this, I tag you to write 25 things about yourself. I will be looking out for your posts :)
