For a week last fall, Dylan worked long hours while a film crew came & taped at the advertising firm where he works for the new reality show The Pitch.  Tonight their episode aired on AMC.  We, of course, had it marked on the calender & watched to see any sightings of Dylan.  It was weird to see my husband & his work in some of the shots.  Just strange, but good marketing for the firm, I suppose.

And, yes, that is our TV.  We've had it since we got married almost 12 years ago.  Don't be jealous of how cheap nonmaterialistic we are.  And that hand weight is needed to push those AV plugs down so that everything works when we watch DVDs or the Wii.  We are so fancy.

Sunday evening on my parents' front porch.  My favorite place to sit & gab when the weather is nice.

Looking at this photo, I just want to scream to myself, "Stand up straight!!!".  I knew that I had a posture issue, but geez!  Also, I see happiness clear as day on our faces.  I love you, Chanel!

I really love clouds.  They are super pretty.  What I don't love are these temperatures in the high 90's.  You can go away now, heatwave.  Thank you.

Rolling & scooting & turning all over the place & trying his hardest to get into everything.  Just grateful that he's not crawling or pulling up on anything yet.  But he really, really wants to.

Things I Learned in March


This post is a little bit late.  It's been sitting, waiting to be published for days!  I did actually learn a few things in March.  Here they are:

- The food I eat affects my mood.  When I eat good food, I generally have a good attitude.  When I make bad food choices, it puts me in a crummy mood.  Lately, I've been allowing myself to be a little naughty & indulge in some not so good for me foods on the weekends.  It's been such a bad idea, because I end up craving those foods again during the week & so I continue to eat them & then I'm in a bad mood a lot.  Slapping myself on the wrist & trying to start over making clean, healthy food choices.


- I taught a lesson at church in Young Womens earlier in March.  The lesson was on supporting family members.  I had listened to this really great podcast about love the week before.  It crept into the lesson quite a bit.  Especially the part about loving more.  I've thought about that often since....love more.

I also loved this quote from the lesson:  “Be one who nurtures and builds. Be one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them” -Marvin J. Ashton

- This post by Tara Whitney is definitely worth a read.  She's figured so much out.  I feel like I'm working in the same direction.  Trying to figure things out.  Noticing what doesn't work in my life & trying to see how I can fix it.  Trying to decide what deserves my limited amount of time the most & focusing on that.


-  I like blogging, but if I don't have time for it, then that's okay.  The last thing I want is for my blog to become a source of stress for me.  I try my hardest to be here regularly & to post good stuff.  I just want this blog to be natural & genuine & real.  That is my goal.

Picking up the pieces from the last few days.  That means I'm trying to clean.  Everyone is well, we're just behind on the day to day stuff.  Is it weird to feel so blessed during a little rocky period?  Cause I do feel so blessed.  Also, I had a Dr. Pepper at lunch today.  I thought I deserved it.

Today we found out that Finn has asthma & we've been thrown into the world of nebulizer breathing treatments.  Life was just so much better when I was still in the dark about those things.

I am sad that he has asthma, but then again I'm not.  At this point in my life I know that it could always be much worse.

Sitting & stitching tooth fairy pillows while Finn takes a nap & Claire is playing at my sister's house.  The quiet gives me a chance to think.  I feel so blessed that people buy the things that I make.  My work is a big part of my life & a big part of who I am & I am thankful.

I finally cleaned out Finn's overflowing closet.  Dylan got out his old Star Wars toys & the girls were in heaven.

Oh, the way he cries when his bottle runs out.  It sounds so sad.  He quickly gets over it when his pacifier is inserted, but times like that can be tough for a fat little baby.

I've decided to do four months of daily photos in the year 2012. One month in each season. April is the month for my spring photo a day challenge. I'll be posting a photo each day this month along with a few words about it. :)




He told me that I looked like the hottest girl on the Indian reservation.
