Lydia's big girl room is coming together just the way I imagined it! I hope she loves the fun bright colors! I am glad to be changing things up from her baby stuff that is more mute and dull colors! She needs a bright room to match her bright personality!
Lydia's first piggy bank & a new piggy bank from Grandpa Jensen. Most people don't know that my dad use to manage a Jb's. I remember going and eating with my Mom & Nic and me and Nic would make little forests out of our broccoli. I think all of us kids use to have these for our piggy banks when we were younger. So when Lydia went over to Papa's the other day she left with a 'Big Boy' filled with Penny's! :) She love it!
If you know me, you KNOW I LOVE Fazoli's and that I had a complete meltdown when they closed in Provo. So when I saw a Fazoli's sign you know I had to go there! :)
and of course I forgot how HUGE their Spaghetti is, but you no one had to remind me of how much I LOVE their Bread sticks! Oh my mouth is drooling just looking at this picture! I would go to Fazoli's over Olive Garden ANY DAY! ya you head me right Fazoli's is a MILLION times better then Olive Garden, and there is no argument! :)
Me and My love at the Sara Bareilles & Sugarland concert! Awe Bliss!!
She loves to dress up already, I think next year you might be seeing my daughter walking around looking like the cute little girl on Toy Story 3, I guess if she looks as cute as that little girl does in overalls, a tutu & rain boots I think I will be okay with that! :)
Lately I have been feeling like a pill popper. I have had so many headaches its ridiculous. They are the kind that come in the middle of the night, and linger all day, no matter what I take. I have figured out if I take this wonderful stuff at night then I can usually keep them from coming in the middle of the night. I hate having to take it, but if it helps me function during the day then it doesn't matter! Who knows maybe in a few months you will be putting me into rehab because I am addicted to Tylenol PM.
I must be feeling sentimental lately, because I came across this camera that was given to me by my late Grandpa Stout (My Mothers dad) He had given me a bunch of old cameras he had as well as video cameras, I thought I had them all in a box just waiting for me to have a studio to put them in, but while cleaning I found this one. It is a Kodak, and it still has some film in it. I cant wait to get it developed to see what pictures were captured with this camera. Memories that were forgotten maybe. Who knows. It makes me wonder of all the places he had been and taken pictures of, where are they all now?
A lot of people come into our home and see this quilt. I am sure none of them know why its there, and probably don't really notice it much, but to Tyler & Me it means a lot. It was made from his Grandpa's Levi's and also something that Tyler loves, which was farming with his Grandpa. I was looking at this quilt and I just felt so sad that I never got to know his Grandpa Gull (or his Grandpa & Grandma Mendenhall) I do feel sad that I didn't get to meet them here on earth, but I am so grateful they are all up there with our unborn children watching over them and probably telling them some embarrassing things about us! I can just imagine the fun they are all having up in heaven with our children that are not with us yet. I wonder what they told Lydia before she came to be with us. :) So I am so grateful for this little quilt that my Mother in law made for Tyler. I will always keep it displayed for all to see, even if they don't know what it means to us!
This is where I will post 1 picture a day for 1 FULL year! Your thinking, 'WOW thats a lot of pictures'. I know right? I am so excited to take this challenge on! Come along with me, while I take you on a ridewith a year of pictures!
