What's your secret?!

Okay so....

I was never really into scrap booking, or homemaking growing up.

While some girls were threading a sewing machine: I was threading my softball cleats.

While some girls were throwing a pie in the oven: I was throwing a grounder to first base.

While some girls were focusing on hanging a picture straight on a wall: I was trying to make a straight line while marching, and playing my flute.

While some girls were learning all these cool techniques to make a house a home: I remain clueless.

So please, tell me your secret. How did you learn to put this color, and that color together and make it look so cute? And how did you learn to make that yummy dinner? And how did you learn to use a sewing machine without jamming it or breaking a needle? And how did you learn to reupholster furniture of crying out loud?!

Is it some skill that you are just naturally born with? Or do they secretly take you to some other world for training on how to do all of these things, that no one bothered to tell me about?!?!?!

So please: what is your secret?!

The Goings On

When I first started this blog I told myself I would blog at least once a week... Yeah that didn't happen. So I am finally updating for all of you who have looked at my blog with disappointment the last 2 months or so. Well I don't even know who reads my blog or who cares to read it but nonetheless here is a little glimpse of what has been going on in our lives... I wish I could post more pictures, but I am running out of time and blogger isn't wanting to work for me right now. so here you go:
We went on our annual river rafting trip with my family and had a great time spending time with them and splashing around in the COLD water!

Sadie got to go on the "kiddie run" which I think she enjoyed! She just wasn't a big fan of her life jacket!!! Sorry baby, its a must! And once we got on the water she was fine.

And of course we went to see the midnight showing of ECLIPSE!!! It was by far the best so far and we had tons of fun goofing off, making funny faces for the camera, and playing games!

The whole gang!

Blue Steel!

In June we got to go to Vegas with Corey's family. They have a timeshare out there and we got to join in on the fun! Here is us on the roof of the Marriot we stayed at.

On the strip

It was fun but long days for Sadie

On the roof again

The View from our hotel. We were seriously right off the strip! you can see Excaliber in the top left of the picture.

And of course we have to post about the person you really want to see. Just the cutest little red head in all the world!

Check out THAT bed head!

Sadie is 10 months, 3 weeks and 3 days old! And believe me I want to keep her little as long as possible! I can't believe her first birthday is next month! She just battled pneumonia and came out on top and she is doing great!!!

So tired!

She decided that the way she wants to tell us that she is full is by rubbing her face... this doesn't work so well if you have a spoonful close to her mouth!

She has 10 teeth, (1 year molars are coming in strong)
Her current favorite hobbies are crawling around like a mad woman and pulling herself up, pulling everything out of her diaper bag, and mom's wallet, furrowing her brow then raising her eyebrows and giving you a big smile, waving (when she feels like it) and splashing around in her tub or pool!

She got a new car seat a few months ago and seems to enjoy it as much as a baby likes a car seat :S.

Favorite foods include: yogurt, graham crackers, puffs, grapes, potatoes, and of all things: PICKLES!!!! She loves pickles!!

We cut her hair a few months ago to get rid of the mullet look. I'm surprised how well it turned out! and her hair is just getting longer and longer!!!
So that's our life currently! Hopefully I can do better at keeping up to date!
