Bonus Birthdays

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Doesn't everyone just love birthday celebrations? It's one of the few times a year when you KNOW you'll be getting some attention (around here attention is rare with Zach being the center so often haha). I like to milk a birthday for all it's worth and spread it out! This year we had many mini celebrations!!! The Saturday before the cruise Mom took me shopping. We had planned on us picking out somethings together for my birthday presents but I just felt too awkward being like "buy this for me" so we instead just shopped, looked, and tried things on then I'd wait outside each store and Mom would pick a few things she liked best to buy me and then she wrapped them on my birthday :) It was SUCH a fun day and great girl time together. We BOTH starting crying in Old Navy (the girl at the fitting rooms thought we were nuts) just out of happiness that we get to be together for so many fun little things like that. I mean when was the last time Mom and I went s

My 26th "Brithday"

Monday, November 29, 2010

Last year I went to DISNEY for my birthday ...so it'd be tough to compete with that this year! Plus turning 26 is pretty lame. It's one of those this-doesn't-matter birthdays ya know? It is pretty sad to be closer to 30 than I am to 20 - I guess I should quit telling high schoolers not to call me ma'am huh? My big day fell on a Monday (which is also lame!) and Zach, obviously had to work. I spent pretty much the whole day on and off the potty with Kye but the weather was nice enough for me to lay out during his nap and read Hunger Games (Katie introduced me to the trilogy...um AMAZING!!!!!!!!). That night we decided to get ready for our date but to open presents before Kye went to bed so he could be part of the fun. Birthday Girl! (good to use my dress from Brandon and Chrissy's rehearsal dinner ) Everyone knows I LOVE icecream right (you do remember my list of toppings? )? So duh, I LOVE ice cream cake. Brusters is okay...but Dairy Queen's is the BEST b

Are you ready for some COLOR?!?

Saturday, November 27, 2010

I've been SO excited to show all of you our colors for the new house but wanted to wait until the paint was on the walls...and now it is :) Here's a reminder of our house plans if you need to see them! If you've ever been to our current home (at least prior to repainting to sell) then you know Zach and I LOVE color. I love for people to walk into my home and be surprised, in a good way, at what they see. Don't get me wrong, I've been to many of your homes and the ones with tan walls are pretty. They just aren't me and I want our new home to be unmistakeably OURS! That being said here's what all our interior paint looks like, what inspired the color choice, and even the paint swatch I chose from Lowes...I can't wait to hear what all of you think! 1. Main Living Areas: This was the very first inspiration for the new house. When we first decided to move, one of the main things I was worried about it how we would pick a color as fun, vibrant, and m
