Oh Brother!

Bella and I were playing with her baby doll this was our convo...

Me: So Bella, do you want a baby brother or sister someday?

Bella: *thinks for a second*...yah Mom, I want a baby brother.

Me: Are you sure you don't want a baby sister?

Bella: No, not a sister, a baby brother!

So I start cracking up and we call Dan and get his voicemail...once she realizes she is leaving a message and cant make her request to daddy for a baby brother she starts balling and runs away to her room screaming:


oh my gosh.

For the record, I'm not pregnant.

Not Your Mother's Book Club

BOOK CLUB! Two years ago we tried and failed. This time we are going to try and make it work!

I am really excited to get this going and really excited about the header I created for the blog. I have been trying to find new ways to make blogs awesome and I'm really loving the learning process...I think I may even try to teach myself how to write codes. Kind of pie in the sky right now, but someday I would love to do it.

Anyone interested can check out the blog at: and nominate a book for October. If you cant make it (or don't live close by) and would still like to participate, check out what we are reading and post about it on the blog. The more the merrier! We are meeting for the first time this Friday. Be there or be square.

Bella Monster vs. The Bug

Bella has recently started to hate all bugs, large or small. This morning we were playing and she saw a bug, ran outside and grabbed a spade from our gardening tools and ran at the bug full blast screaming, "GET THE BUG! GET THE BUG! GET THE BUG!" ended up not being a bug but a piece of lint. I was cracking up and called Dan. He related a similar story to me and said that she was in the yard swinging the spade over her head for like 20 minutes without being able to pull the trigger and smash the bug. lol what a goober! :)

Meet My New Friends....Kevin & Amanda!

Tonight I was blog surfing, looking for new ideas on how to spruce things up around here and I came across this AMAZING website...maybe I'm the last to know about this...then again it could be the best kept secret known to mankind.

Fan of! Free Fonts. Recipes. Scrapbooking. Photography. Blog Design. Tutorials. Giveaway. Everything you're into!

What caught my attention was the free fonts plug. That's right. FONTS! Anyone that has witnessed my brand of crazy knows how much I LOVE FONTS. So as I'm poking around the website I discover not only do they have amazing fonts, they convert your handwriting into a font. I love it. Poking around a little more I discovered a treasure trove of amazing crafts, tips, tricks, and as they say, "everything you're into" that puts Martha Stewart and all other crafts hoities to shame. These guys are amazing. I cant wait to discover more and see what they are going to post next!

New Post?? WHAT??

Well, I thought I could make it a year without posting...turns out I can't procrastinate any longer. We have had quite a year. Let me start in March. Bella Turned 3 hooray! She is growing so fast and is super awesome...more on that later...lets skip to April.

After years of wrestling with the practice, Dan decided to close the doors, start fresh, and move on to another career. He is currently working for a friend of ours and going to school in preparation for med school. Holy Crap.

Honestly if you had asked me 5 years ago if we thought we would be here right now I would have laughed at you. We are really excited for the new adventure, Dan is the biggest nerd in the universe which makes him perfect for the job. The night of his first class a few months ago he came home and talked my head off like a teenage girl. I have to say, it was pretty darn cute!

So here is the process as I understand it: Dan is taking some refresher courses and prepping for the MCAT which he will take after the first of the year. He will then be able to apply to many many schools at the beginning of June and if things work out the way we hope we will know shortly thereafter where we will be landing for school in Fall of 2012. YIKES. Which means: Dan and Bella will be starting med school and kindergarten at the same time. seriously.

In the mean time, I have decided to take the fall semester off and will resume classes during the spring semester. I am taking the time to, dun dun dun finally open my etsy store. I will be posting within the next few weeks and yes, I will be emailing you all like crazy with updates. I am SO excited to get this up and running and hope to have a well oiled machine by the time Dan starts med school.

Well that's all for now, hopefully I'll stay on top of my blog! :)
