It's my party....

Well I hit the big 2-3 on Memorial Day. I hope everyone had a great, relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Full of fun, family, and yummy food.

I’m so grateful for my family for wanting me to have such a great birthday. It was my first b-day with all my fam, in a long, long time. I got some cute tops and shoes and earrings. I was very spoiled. My mom made me my favorite strawberry desert cake. (I'll post the recipe later, it’s the best thing EVER) My 2 bestest friends from Fresno sent me the best birthday gift. I have a gift certificate for a pedicure and my cute little family has a family shoot with Shannon Masayo Photography! (I am so so excited Shannon!) Where is a good place to get a pedicure? I haven't been to get a pedicure since we moved here, my feet will be so happy.

We are still getting the ball rolling with the whole moving thing. Cory had an interview at an Idaho Falls hospital, as a transporter. We haven't heard back yet about it. That whole situation is annoying. No one will ever call us back... but, patience is a virtue I guess.

Thanks for all the happy birthday wishes everyone! I love you all!

If you didn't see my previous post, check, check, check it out :) I desperately need ideas. My other blog for all you ladies out there will be up and running soon. Be patient with me, I have yet to figure out the language of html... I don't know if I ever will. :)

Have a fabulous day!

I have been thinking about starting another new, fabulous blog! will probably be mostly fabulous for me. Blogging is therapeutic for me, kinda; I don’t know how to explain it. Maybe I love it so much because it the one thing I’m doing right now that’s hobby-ish and makes me feel like I am connected to the outside world that isn’t always formula and poop. I love Hayden to death, and being a mom but I need girl time sometimes. Does that make sense...? So now I’m going to start another blog, no one will probably read it but it will be fabulous for me to just get stuff out there. It will be about mommy things, girly things, fashion things, awesome find things, fun things, random things, cooking things, crafty things, possibly controversial things, empowering women things, baby/kid things, all sorts of things...

And now for a name... I have a few thoughts, but am having some serious writers block. I know a bunch of things I already want to blog about but this little unborn blog needs a name... Any suggestions?

I think it would be great to have a place for women to laugh, cry, debate, set up play dates and girl days, give opinions, discuss, chat, be inspired and uplifted, confess, etc... Especially for me....

Maybe I should just combine my 2 blogs? Here though I seemed to get carried away about talking about my adorable son! But seriously.....

Isnt he the cutest?

So I guess this is...

To be continued.....

Never say never....

I have totally been M.I.A. and not even just the blogging world, to almost everyone, everywhere with everything! Hayden of course keeps me swamped, super busy, on my toes, whatever you want to call it. I love that boy, he is so sweet. I love getting him up in the morning and feeding him his breakfast and he will cuddle and "talk" to me on my shoulder for a good 15 or 20 min. I wish he would never grow out of that.

But, on with the purpose of this post....So of course my day is full of little boy/baby things but Cory and I have recently made quite a huge decision.

WE'RE MOVING! Idaho.... Wah wah wah.....Idaho Falls to be specific.

Sorry to all you Idahoans or whatever you’re called. Or whoever loves and has a passion for Idaho. But I HATE Idaho. Ok maybe not hate, but seriously jaded for sure. I always swore I would never, ever, EVER live in Idaho.... BUT... here we go on this new adventure I guess.

I’m trying to trust in my Heavenly Father and know that this is the right decision and that it won’t be forever. 3 years tops. I can do that right? And Idaho Falls is only 2 1/2 hours away from Utah. Yes, I can definitely do that.

Idaho Falls is super cheap as far as cost of living goes, and there are many opportunities there for Cory and I to go to school. Cory has already interviewed at an Idaho Falls hospital to be a transporter, and has applied for an Idaho Falls police dispatcher job. We will know Friday if he got the job at the hospital. I'm so grateful that he has been able to find some decent paying jobs to apply for in this crap-ola economy. There are also are a few schools that have Autism programs if I choose or need to work. My brother, sister in law and my nephew also live in Idaho Falls so that’s good I will have some family there. So hopefully it will all work out. I don't do to awesome with things that require change or things that are out of my control... So I'm pretty much a stressed out mess. This is the right decision...this is the right decision....phew; I don’t know how many times I’m going to have to say that.

So first things first...Cory needs a job. Second, somewhere to live. Third, lots and lots of packing. Fourth, we really need to get Cory's car fixed. (Yes it’s still in Texas, ugh, that’s a whole other painful story.) And fifth, Hayden has his 6th month check up and shots June 29th. I really don’t want him to be off on his shots so we will be around somewhat until then. My goodness, so much to do....

So lots of "fun" but definitely exciting things going on at our house.
(Please pray for me that I don't slowly go insane :) )
I will keep you posted on our trek to Idaho....

Love you all! I hope you are all enjoying this heat! I kinda love it, it reminds me of living in Fresno. If anyone wants to do a park date with me and Hayden let me know! Heaven knows I need some serious girl time.

For the best Mommy in the world...

Hi mommy! It's me, Hayd. Do you know what today is? It's called Mother's Day. Daddy told me all about it. He said it's a day when you get to show your appreciation (daddy says that means saying 'thank you') for your mommy. I wish every day was Mother's Day cause you are so special. You teach me lots of stuff during the day when daddy's at work. We play all the time and sometimes I take a really short nap cause I wanna get back up and spend more time playing and laughing with you. You're so special to me. I can't talk very much yet but I hope you understand how much I love you. Daddy says you are amazing and he can't understand how lucky he got. He really did marry an awesome person. You're the best mommy in the world.
Daddy asked me what I wanted to give you today and all I could think about was what you gave me last Mother's Day, that was the day after you and dadddy found out that I was gonna be part of your family. Thank you so much. That means alot to me that you would want to have me in your family. So I wanted to do something that you would remember forever and I hope this is it. I know you aren't expecting it cause I'm only 4 1/2 months old and I souldn't be able to type yet but I'm pretty advanced for my age. (Actually daddy is helping a little...)
Anyways, Happy Mother's Day Mommy!!!!!! Thank you so much for everything you do and for being so kind to daddy, he needs our help.... alot. I hope this makes you feel good. I love when you smile at me and tell me you love me. That's how I know you 'appreciate' me too.
I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
