Fall Fun!!!

Hello everyone!
I feel like I have been neglecting my personal blog because I have been so busy with my scrap blog. Sorry!
Friday we went to the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. We were hoping to get some nice fall photos for the christmas card. Brock had vastly different plans. The garden was beautiful and it was a perfect fall night. Brock was so happy to explore everything. But, did not want to sit still for even 1 second to snap a family photo. Here's what happened...
Ahhh cute couple. Lets add the baby.
This pic just cracks me up. This is how it was when we tried to pin him down for a picture!
Random...This weird plant had huge thorns... Anyway
Just leading the way having a good ol' time!
Oh the ever enticing stair climb.
See Ya!
Group photo! Hey at least he's smiling this time! And my girlfriend Jo, is like 6 months pregnant! Ya, I hate her too! Jk but seriously, if she goes the whole time with out breaking out maternity pants...
I have been personally lazy these days. I mean, I do stuff (work, exercise, clean, scrap) but, I have been neglecting doing my hair, make-up or wearing cute clothes. I'm sorry but yoga pants are just too comfy! Anyway, either Tim hasn't noticed (most likely) or he knows better (if you know Tim then, ya HaHa) but he hasn't said anything. So here is proof that I still know how to apply mascara! I'm sure this look will be ruined  oh about 2.5 seconds after Brock wakes up. But, that's ok, now I have proof. And Tim wouldn't have noticed anyway!

New LO

Hey everybody! Here is a new lay out I did using Nicole and Amber's kit Celebrate. It was such a fun kit to work with! Make sure you go to her blog to see all the other CT's work and to see my bio. Aren't you proud mom? Ha ha. Tim is getting sick of the whole digital thing. I am just so excited to be making stuff for someone else to show off! Make sure you download this FREE kit. Nicole will release a different goodie everyday. Just a little hint, I LOVED the add on to this kit. I thought they were super fun and cute!!!

Announcements, Updates and a few Cuss Words

Hello family and friends! Just a few things.
My announcement: I have started a new blog in addition to this one. I have been enjoying digital scrapbooking so much that I want to share my spoils with you. I don't know if any body will download anything or not, but at least I can give myself another excuse to play, right? Anyway, the website is and I will be posting free Quick Page Layouts, Mini Albums, and Blog Backgrounds. And, in time free kits. I am just learning how to make these and it is so much fun. I think Tim want his computer back though...

As for my Updates~
Brock has been mostly binkie free! He only takes it at nap time and this is mostly for Mom's sake. He is very good at going to bed with out it and does great all day without it. He is definitely talking more now adding words like bite, ball, and bye. He likes the B words for some reason. As for an update on me, well since that last post I have decided to give up diet coke and as much candy as I can handle. I am proud to say I haven't had a coke since that post. I haven't gone this long with out 2 cokes a day  since I was pregnant! So YAY ME!!! Also, I have cut way back on sweets. Except tonight.... Dang you Half Baked Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream! You will be my sweet and fudgey demise!

And for the Cuss words...
Brock has learned to count... Sort of... Tim will throw a ball to him and count one, two, THREE!. Emphasizing the word three. Brock decided to try counting for himself. But instead of actually counting, he just says a*s, a*s, A*S!! It is so funny! He is so proud of himself and his counting abilities. Oh we love this little boy. He brings  us so much joy and laughter. Even if I have to edit the humor sometimes. :D

Tagged by Melanie!

Here's how to play:
1. Link your tagger and list rules on your blog 
2. Share 7 random/weird facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post leaving names and links to their blogs
4. Let them know they have been tagged by commenting on their blog

1. I love Harry Potter. I have started the series at least (the VERY least) 12 times. You should see Tim's face every time I have HP in my hands.

2. I'm addicted to Desperate Housewives on ABC. It used to be my dirty little secret.

3. I love to work out. The sweatier the better. I go about 5 times a week. Why don't I look like an amazing super model? Please see #4.

4. I LOVE sweet stuff. Especially candy. Any candy. Even the weird inventive candy they always have for sale on clearance by the check stand. I'll try anything twice. I don't think I ever met a candy I didn't like. Except Twizlers. Yuck. Oh and Circus Peanuts, but I've only met 2 people in my entire life that like these (Tim's Grandpa Bos and My Grandpa Fox... see the trend?) so I don't think they count as candy.

5. I dislike dogs. Sorry most of the greater Seattle area (where dogs are treated like precious children). I don't mind well trained dogs,  but sorry. It is just gross to take your dog into the grocery store, and let him lick your face. And they also really scare me. I randomly got bit by a dog once, and ever since then, I have severely distrusted them. It's actually a funny story. Ask me, I'll tell you.

6. I love writing and would some day like to write my own stories. 

7. I drink more diet coke than I do water. I wish they had coke rehab (the soda kind) because I seriously need to wean myself of this habit!

Ok I tag

I know thats 8 but who cares?

Real Men Vacuum

Brock loves to vacuum. It makes the job a lot slower, but hey when both the men in my life are cleaning, I don't complain. 

Brock has had a runny nose lately. I had to take a picture of this beauty. Wow.

Why I never Grocery Shop Alone

What is it with boys???
I usually try and take take Tim with me when I buy more than a few items at the grocery store. Why? Because it is impossible to make more than one trip in and out of the apartment to retrieve bags from the car when Brock is involved. Tim is like the Grocery Bag Bandit, because no matter how many groceries we buy, Tim can somehow make it inside with every bag on his arms. Amazing? I think so. I didn't marry this guy for nothing people!

Tim and I are out of food, so I had to go to the store to buy stuff for dinner. The actual shopping process was great, but once I got home, I tried to be a Bandit and put all the groceries on my arms. Brock didn't have shoes on, but I figured he could walk the few paces to the door. Dirty socks are the least of my worries. So I make it to the door (and now is about the time Brock usually runs in to me in excitement to climb the stairs) and unlock it and notice Brock is not behind me. I turn around to find him laying on his stomach drinking a puddle of rainwater OFF THE GARAGE FLOOR!!! I shriek at him to get up an follow me inside, but he just smiles big and dips his head down for another (refreshing?) gulp of water. So in my haste I throw all the groceries in the door (As my fresh loaf of french bread lands in a puddle)  and make a mad dash to Brock. Oh wait! I left my keys in the hallway! Luckily, I caught the door before it shut all the way and grabbed my keys, giving Brock the opportunity  for a few more drinks. I snatched him up and muffled as I was by the whole thing, managed to make it up the stairs and in the door with groceries and baby in arms. Yuck, yuck, yuck. I would have taken a pic, but it was just too disgusting. 

Anyway, I know you are all laughing by now, and I think after writing about it, I can too! 
But, if for some strange reason you aren't laughing, this movie of Brock should do it. I love his laugh. I makes me smile every time!
