Lazy lake life

What an amazing day.  My baby asleep next to me.  A hot fresh cup of coffee to sip on.  My crazy dog ruling the island.  Could life get better?

We caved, he's going to wear a suit.

The seventy dollars is way worth it.

He's going to steal the show.

I don't mind one bit.

So quiet ....  So sweet.   I love late night mommy time

  T.V. Is off.....


Calm before the storm I suppose.


H man and April Vaca

Now is the time to start writing. I've always written in a journal, and have taken breaks from it in my life.

I just want a written memoir for my son, Harrison to be able to look back on.

Well, an attempts to start blogging. After my first post I discovered I was pregnant! A year and a half later, a ten month old and a little bit of mommyhood under my belt here we are.

The journey from here...
My 5 lb.12 oz little lovebug

To here has been amazing.

My heart.

There's a lot going on in our lives right now.

We're still in the process of updating and renovating our 100 year old house.
A house in which I'm newly committed to. We were flip flopping on whether or not we were going to stay here for another couple of years. Ultimately now is not the time for us to move. So the art teacher in me has to get creative and make the flaws in our house livable.

We're getting married June 10th, 2011.

A day after our sons birthday. We thought it would be cute, and it is. However, it's very stressful.

Now I can understand why people have babies after they're married.

It's easier to plan without having to do a diaper change in between seating charts, and what color table linens to use.

I'm an avid lurker, and reader of other peoples blogs, I've just never jumped on the bandwagon.
I wish I had tracked my pregnancy through blogging, as I've watched so many others do.

I'm excited to start talking about all my interests....

Art - Teaching - Running - Crafting - Gardening - Motherhood - Married life - Weddings

... my guilty pleasures in reality tv, my secret love of naptime (otherwise known as mommy time)

I look forward to input. My best girlfriend is having a baby come August and I'm planning a baby shower for her with an aviary inspiration.

So on to some blog design, while my H naps away!

Our Jack and Jill is tomorrow, and I'm overly excited. I admit it.
I'm terribly excited to just have a night where essentially I worry about me. I love my son. I love my son with all my heart. But sometimes I miss just being me, and I'm happy to have a night celebrating C & I. Honestly, I can't wait to get a dress and heels on too. Going out with my girlfriends used to be a perfect opportunity to get dolled up and party the night away. Those days are long gone, in fact most of my girlfriends are either pregnant, married, or home with babies. Life sure changes fast.

C and I need to step it up with wedding planning, it's in less than a month and we really need to get some stuff done.

I'm trying to think about our vows, I want our son mentioned in it and I was wondering if anyone else out there had any ideas for including a child in the wor
