The Big 3-0

Sooo...I'm turning 30, holy cow! I want to get something good for this birthday but of course it can't be too spendy. I have no idea what to get! I thought I would take a poll. I want everyone to put in their 2 cents and tell me what you think I should get! I'm thinking less than $100. What would you spend the money on???

Heather you are missed!

I just HAD to share this e-mail that I got from Heather today...I sure do miss her!

Jodi when I went to the fair and saw this.... I laughed and thought of you.... Miss you Mrs. Perky.

Kristen's walking

Kristen says hi!

Kristen's latest achievements

Our little Kristen is quite the little stinker these days, it might have something to do with non-stop teething! She is starting to walk, the most steps she's taken is probably4. She absolutely loves walking around with her "walker" as we call it. She totally looks like a little old lady and she's so happy now that she knows how to turn in different directions. Her newest word is "ug" when she came to give me a hug yesterday. She had her 1 year check-up and nothing much is different...her head still measures off the charts (thanks a lot Cory!) And she weighs 24 pounds...little chunker!

She also has been interested in drawing lately. I can't believe she's old enough to be doing this already...this is how I found her this afternoon.

They're invading!

This little guy was found behind the toilet when I was getting the girlies out of the bath. This one freaked when I went to pick it up and shed its tail...I'd much rather have these little guys running around my house than scorpions, roaches or spiders any day!

Picture Post

I saw this on my friend Liora's blog and thought it was really cool...
I would love to see what everyone comes up with for this, so please copy it!

The concept:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

The Questions:
1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One word to describe you.
12. Your nickname.

1: Jodi...of course. I thought this was the most unique picture in the bunch
2: Italian, pasta, etc.

4: Green and purple combo has been one of my lifelong favs. They compliment each other so well.
5: I like a lot of them, so this collage summed it up.
6: Crystal light
7: Bora Bora...who knows if I'll ever go, too long of a plane ride!
8: Chocolate ice cream! Well that is my favorite lately.

12: Cory calls me Babe.

One reason why I love the desert!

So I was sitting on the couch this morning, I go to get up and out of the corner of my eye something crawls really fast from behind the pillow I was sitting against over the back of the couch, I freak out thinking it looked like a big, nasty spider of some sort, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this little guy...

Seriously SOOO cute!

Lauren is funny

So I'm posting this a little late, but it's so worth sharing!
So for about a week or two before Kristen turned one, Lauren kept talking and asking about how Kristen was going to be so different when she turns one. We went shopping for her birthday presents and Lauren would pick up toys only suitable for a 3 year old or older. When I explained that she would choke on those chosen toys she would say "but it's for when she's one". I explained to her over and over that she will still be a baby even after her birthday and that she won 't be any different. I thought I had finally explained well enough and she had a grasp on the idea. Well she woke up early on the morning of Kristen's birthday and comes and climbs into bed with me, but first she looked at Kristen sleeping peacefully in her crib next to me. She quietly whispers in my ear "Mom, I can't tell if she's one yet, she still looks like a baby!" and then says "I wonder if she'll be able to run around when she wakes up?" I laughed and explained she couldn't run around yesterday and today is no different. So then Kristen wakes up and I pick her up, excitedly Lauren says "put her down and see if she can walk!" I explained again. Her philosophy was "but Becca can walk and she's one!" Becca is a few months older, I didn't even try to explain that one....
