Girls Day Out

Way back in January, me and my favorite 7 yr old
were lucky enough to have a day just for us...
Justin's mom really wanted to take all the girls out to see The
Frog Princess. Naturally I jump at the chance to hang out with
the coolest, most rocking little girl that I know, even if at
the moment she happened to be missing
a couple of teeth.
So cute.
First off whats a movie with out treats???
So after a quick picture of us leaving we headed off to
Target for some goodies (I'm way to cheap to pay for movie
treats at the movies).
Lauren found some good luck outside of Target.

We joined the rest of the Thompson girls at the theater.
Well the rest minus Christine, Elisha, Kira and Robyn.
In this picture starting at the back is Justin's mom Sharon,
his sister Mindi, Mindi's daughter Sam,
sister Amy (happy birthday today Amy)
Mindi's Daughter Shelby and the most rocking Lauren.
We both loved the movie and time spent with family.

After the show we headed off to Fazoli's for
some yummy and cheap Italian food.
(Lauren's favorite)

All in all a great day spent with my girl.

The next weekend Justin took the boy's out to Smith and Edwards gun show with my dad
for a little male bonding. No pictures of them because I'm the camera happy one,
but they all came home happy and telling me about the guns they saw.
To which I just smiled and was happy that I they have a husband and a dad
that will take them to do all the boy stuff so I don't have to.

Mi!o's First Hair Cut

How do you instantly transform your 13 mth old into a toddler????
Cut off all of their lovely baby locks!!!!
Milo wasn't having this hole sitting still thing.
So I sat in the chair with him on my lap while my hair
lady Tracy went to business.
Just a simple back shot to show how long his hair was.

Milo not so sure about me setting him down after the cut.

He was so good mostly and thankfully because Tracy's next
appointment turned up early and kept Mr Milo's attention
on her and not on the fact that he was being sheered.
I love his new little look and he did magically before my
eyes become a little man. That part I always find sad.
I will miss you Milo's long blond locks, just like I'll miss your
baby hood. Ok I know way sappy but I am allowed to because this is
my little man who is still a baby but is about to become the big brother
to his little sister.

Almost 35 Wks

On Wednesday I am a whopping 35 wks.
So if you have ever been 35 wks pregnant then you
know and understand that right now I have a massive mixture of
of rational and irrational feelings.
They span from labor fears to will the boys new bedroom
ever be done????? I am a roller coaster of everything.
One minute I am so sick and tired of this alien in my body that
I want her out and I mean NOW, and the next that thought brings
nothing but panic. HELP.... Just so you all know
I am 35 wks with still no name for this child!!!!
Thank you for listening to my ramblings and here's to 5 more wks
but lets all hope that it is more like 3 or 4 more wks!!!!
Ah so much to do.....So little time.
Pray for my nesting energy to come soon and to stay strong!!!

I Heart Valentine's

This last Sunday my kids masterfully made these
Martha Stewart inspired wax hearts

This photo is from Martha Stewart,
and below is our version.
I must say that ours rock and are super fly.
Milo loves them and points them out to me about
ten times a day.

Here are some photo's of my kids that we took
with my point and shot camera that I got for Christmas.
As a side note I love the freedom that my little point and shot gives me.
Don't get me wrong I love my other camera but sometimes
I just wont bring it because it is to big and bulky or I am
worried that something will happen to it.
So thank you Justin for my point and shot.


Mike who isn't afraid to make pink hearts.


I must have been feeling the 80's tonight with this card.
I am making some valentine's to mall off
to Great Grandparents.
This is the first one and I'm not sure it will make
the final cut. Still enjoy the look and fill of the past.
I updated my photo blog with some pixs of Milo, check it out and let me know what you think!

Megan's all modern Giveaway

My friend Megan is doing a giveaway for All Modern.
You can chose between 2 $50 pillows. If I win
I chose this blast of red goodness.

(All Modern Zinnia Pillow)

My living room also feels that this
pillow should come and be apart of our home,
and I must say that I agree and hope that I win,
but if I don't I hope that you do.
