This describes my week perfectly...

I started out the morning pretty normal with giving London her daily bath etc.. but I had let her walk around in the living room strutting her bare bum & all for around two minutes or so before getting her dressed. Nothing too suspicious or out of the ordinary happened and we went about our day. Then later, I kept smelling poop so I decided to retrace her steps from earlier, just in case. Nothing was found... well that afternoon as she was napping, I decided to clean up my closet and this is what I found...
I thought... that lil' stinker!! Literally.
The moral of the story is:
No matter how "crappy" your week is, all you can do is laugh it off and keep on smiling!

Cause lets be honest, we all know it's usually out of our control anyway. I'm just secretly hoping this week isn't as full of as many suprises as last week! :)

Boy am I glad this weeks over!

Ok so this is our latest week of adventures..
London came home looking like this after a few hours with her dad at Chuckie Cheese! Black eye, swollen bleeding forhead and possibly a good scar now to prove it. :( It was honestly the saddest thing I've witnessed yet in her short life .. and now I get it. How sad it is as a parent to see your kids hurt or hurting! I thought .. gosh how did my parents survive us growing up? haha I dont think I will do very well seeing her hurt or sick or heaven forbid anything bad should ever happen to my baby! I m pretty sure it hurt momma just as bad if not more than her.. lol. But there is a happy ending to this sad story and through it all she is a lil trooper, happy and smiling now! I gave her a big cookie and as you can see below I think it cured the bumps and bruises from Chuckie freakin Cheese!

After the cookie with a big smile! :) just like her momma.. nothin like yummy sugar obsessions to make you feel better!
Of course the next day we just had to go out and buy her the cutest pink fourwheeler for all of our upcoming easter and summer festivities. She loves it and to say the least, that makes mom happy, nothin like seeing your child smile and laugh to cure any bad day!

A day in the sun!

Okay so I've officially decided.. I post more pics of my daughter than anyone I know.. facebook, blog etc. So Im sorry people maybe Im a lil obsessed but I just can't help it, she's my first and only and is getting more adorable everyday, do you blame me?!
We went to Moab this weekend and had a blast, even got sunburnt! How great is that? I am so ready to go camping I can taste it. Bring on the summer already, I mean honestly I am so tired of winter at this point. I need a lil sunshine in my life besides London everyday ;) I can hardly wait for this summer, its going to be a fun one.. camping, fourwheeling, jeeping, fishing, hiking, lake powell, swimming and some vacations.. possibly even to British Columbia! I CANNOT wait. So lets do it already Mother Nature, bring it on! Here's a few of London loving life outside.. this is a first for her you know.. let the exploring begin!

This is why I adore Audrey Hepburn...

If I could be one icon from back in the day, it would be Audrey Hepburn, matter of fact, I even wanted to name London Audrey.. but no one else seemed to love the name as much I did... I still may some day if I ever have another daughter! I think it & she is beautiful, classy & elegant in a whole new class all her own. Plus she loved her yorkie as much as I did mine! Thought I'd share a few of my favorite "Audrey quotes"
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
“I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you”
“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.”
Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”

London & Mama Time..

I had to post these because A) London is the biggest tease around, for those of you who dont believe it which is so funny at her age.. B) She's getting so big so fast I can hardly believe it! C) she just learned her name, when asked she replies "L?!" and of course D) could she get any cuter?! All in all, we had a really fun time rolling around on my floor while she tried to sit on my face... she was too funny and very determined to pin me down on the ground! Hope you get a good laugh out of her like I did!

That a girl Marilyn Monroe!

I really like this quote I think its true in life and sometimes we just need a reminder that everything happens for a reason, you learn the most from hard times and your mistakes and in the end, eventually .... one day, IT WILL WORK OUT just as it is supposed to. Always does and I think she's right, the only person you can rely on and trust is yourself at the end of the day, because no matter how hard you try or what you do you can't ever control anyone or anything but yourself. You are your own best friend, you create your life and your destiny.
