This stud and I will be hitting up the pool quite frequently this Summer. You are invited anytime. Yes, even if you don't like me very much, you can use me for the pool. You may even start to like me.
Hey, I will do anything for a "friend" these days...shameless!


I need help. I don't know much about beauty products (make-up, shampoo, conditioner, face wash, face lotion, hair products) and quite frankly, I am too cheap to pay for most of them. But, I am thinking that I might just have to splurge because I feel bored with myself.
So, I want to know your favorites and why because I need to spice things up a bit. Help a sista out and leave a comment.

Cop: "Pull over!"
Man: "Its a cardigan, but thanks for noticing."

One of my all-time favorite movie lines...
Where is it from?

Anyway, I have major cardigan love. Any color, any shape. Sophisticated, flirty, preppy, cool.

Thank you J. Crew.

5 Months

Our little man is growing up right before our eyes. He is still our lightweight weighing in at a whopping 13.4 pounds! Maybe he'll pack on more pounds once he starts solids in a couple of weeks.

I look forward to each day with him. He is getting more and more fun and I love watching him learn about the world around him, develop new skills, and change by the moment. I can tell I am going to have my hands full when he starts crawling because this kid never, EVER sits still! He is one Curious George just like his daddy.

He is full of smiles, loves when his daddy comes home, loves to be sung to, loves being tickled softly, loves to be read to, loves being a part of anything and everything we do, and loves to snuggle his mama come bed time. I hope he never stops liking the last one!

We are so in love with him!

Teeth and nursing do not go together! Yes, Carson cut his first tooth last Sunday and every time I have nursed him I pray he won't bite me. Today he did, and it hurt. BAD. What's a mom to do? I still want to nurse him but his little jaw and teeny tiny tooth can do some damage!

May I indulge in my adorable baby boy {and his Daddy}?
Thank you.

Top 10-
...in no particular order...
10. Watching Makenna's dance/singing group perform at Wheeler Farm

9. Spending time with family- too short of time with the O'Neill's though...

8. Furiniture shopping with my mom for her {remodeled} cabin
7. Lunch with my high school gf's

6. Oquirrh Mtn Temple Open House

We had to walk thru this to get to our cars... it was pouring. No, I think dumping buckets and golf balls describes it better!

5. Having a {cute, mind you} on-demand baby sitter so I could exersise, run errands, and pretty much do whatever I wanted!

4. Seeing my nieces and nephews

3. Cafe Rio. 3 Times.
2. Sonic Happy Hour

1. Proving to Joel that he had red hair as a baby- he is in the middle!

We had an awesome time but were very happy to come home to Joel and our new 'family present'! If you don't know, whenever I leave town without Joel, he seems to purchase something we can all enjoy. Isn't he so sweet? Well, dont be fooled. I came home to speakers and a subwoofer for our computer. Just what I wanted! What a goof.


I used to call Utah 'home'. Not anymore. Milwaukee is our 'home' and I am fine with that. Now I get to vacation to Utah...even better!

Update and pictures coming...
