It can't possibly be

I just ordered the invitations for the girls 4th birthday.
How can they possibly be turning 4 already?
It has to be a mistake.
If I close my eyes do you think I can freeze time?
What if I spin around three times,
patting my head and rubbing my tummy?

Funny Ph(F)rases Friday

Hope these put a smile on your face...

Realizing that Addison has been in the bathroom longer than normal I call into her,
Me: Addee are you done?
Addee: Yesssss
Me: (now inside the bathroom) What were you doing in here for so long?
Addee: I was talking to my booty.
Me: Oh really, smiling, what were you telling it?
Addee: I was telling it to hurry up and go poopy.

Me: Charlotte what three things do you want to put in your share box to take to school tomorrow?
Charlotte: (thinks for a minute) Nena, Mousety, and Bear!
(the kids that live across the street named Helena, Annika and Christoph)
Me: Aww honey that would be very cool but they have to go to their own school.
Charlotte: Ok. I'll find something else then.

I love that my girls have such a great friendship with our neighbors. They are really good kids and even though they are all at least 4 years older play with my girls so sweetly all the time.

Wordful Wednesday - Just Like Papa

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it (them).

Addison: Mommy he looks like papa.
Me: Ummm, he does, does he? How so baby?
Addison: He has a mustache. Just like Papa's.
Me: (laughing) He does have a mustache like Papa.

I am pretty sure Papa would not like to hear he resembles a walrus
in any way.
Even if it is just his mustache.

What do you think?

All decked out

Thanks to my fabulous friend Angie I was able to
'model' some of her favorite jewelry and review them.
She sent me the new Twisted Silver XO earrings
and I took them out on the town.
Well maybe not on the town, but I took them on a tour of my work.

I can totally see Jen Anniston wearing these,
can't you??
Yes that is the George Clooney's parking spot.
I know I could hardly breathe either.
XOXO for sure!!

Then the amazing people at Twisted Silver sent me a package full of goodies.
It felt like Christmas morning.
I seriously am in love with all my new accessories.

This might be my favorite piece of jewelry I own at the moment.
I LOVE it!!
And these two bracelets look so awesome alone or stacked on my wrist.
I have gotten so many compliments on all of the above.
I think I might have found a new obsession...

Wordful Wednesday

We were able to get away this weekend and celebrate our anniversary.
6 years of wedded bliss.
We stayed in La Jolla, Ca.
Our hotel was right on the ocean.
It was wonderful.
I seriously love my hubby.
I am one lucky girl.
He cooks, he cleans, and he loves me.
Ohhh and he makes incredible margaritas...
just ask anyone who has had one.

4 Years Ago

Has it really been 4 years?

4 years ...
since I packed my bags and left the comforts of my home
for the cold white walls of a hospital.
Where I sat day in and day out with monitors
strapped to my belly 24 hours a day in a hospital bed,
starring at two heart beats,
eating the delicious cafeteria food,
watching endless hours of 'A Baby Story' on TV,
getting woken up every night multiples times to 'find' my babies,
celebrating Valentine's day and my birthday in that room,
a room in which I left only twice in 7 weeks for 2 hours.
Somehow it feels like yesterday.

February 9th, 2006 I really began an incredible journey that
gave me two of the most important people in my life.
And I became a completely different person.
I became a mom.

10 Things

10 Things I Never Knew Till I Became a Mom

10. Yo can pack a diaper bag every day and never need to use anything out of it,
however the one time you forget to bring it you desperately need everything in it.

9. The amount of fear that takes over you when you 'lose' your child in public.

8. How wipies become your staple cleaning tool.
Seriously I use those things for just about everything.

7. How well you can actually operate on 2 hours of consecutive sleep....week after week.

6. How relaxing grocery shopping can be.
If you don't understand, I will happily loan out my kiddies
the next time you need to run in to grab a few things.

5. How insanely crazy you can become for someone ringing your doorbell,
just after you get the kids to sleep.

4. You rarely get to use the bathroom alone.

3. How much sand comes home from the park with your kids.

2. How much stain removers you will use when your kids start feeding themselves.

1. The overwhelming feeling that you couldn't love your child anymore than you do and then they smile up at you.

Wordful Wednesday

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it (them).

I know you all know the minor panic that sets in when you can't find
your kid(s) for those few moments.
Obviously this is multiplied when this happens in a public setting.
However I had this happen recently in my house.

A simple game of hide and seek led this mommy into panic mode when after 5 minutes her girls were no where to be found.
Seriously there are only so many places to hide in my house.
Apparently I forgot one key hiding spot.

Haha Mommy we were in the hall towel cabinet.
Doors closed and not even the quietest giggle came from either of them.

Placerita Canyon

When I was a little girl my dad used to take my brother Mikey and I to Placerita Canyon Park.
We loved to pack lunches and hike up to the waterfall.
We'd spend hours in the nature center looking at the animals and flowers.
We have hundreds of pictures of us up there through the years.
Even as we grew older we still loved going and hiking the same trails.
When my dad passed away I was really sad thinking my girls would never get to share those memories with him.
He would have loved my girls.
Probably even more than he loved me :)
And he would have loved my nephew Brandon.
He is a mini version of my brother.

When we decided to meet up at Placerita with our kids I knew that my dad would be so happy knowing that we were sharing his love of Placerita with our kids.
Making our own memories.
Taking pictures of our kids in the same spots we did many years ago.
This boy is so dang cute.
Our sweet peas along the trail.
My dad painted this walking stick for my brother when we little.
My girls.
I have a picture of Mikey and I in this exact spot.
So cute.
They had so much fun.
My girls took the longest nap after all the fun they had.
Hugs goodbye.
And a strangle for Charlotte.

I know he was smiling down that day on us.
