Gender Reveal Party!

It's a boy!

What a fun day!  We had a great turnout, there was snacks and cupcakes for everyone, and most surprisingly we had enough balloons for everyone!
Laura and me, she is almost due!

The 3 little 6 month olds.

Everyone got their own balloon to pop and see what the gender would be!

I had the most wonderful Valentines Day this year, all because of my adorable husband.  This was actually our first Valentines Day together being as he is in the marines.  I was worried at first because all I knew was flowers picked out by his mom and delivered to my house, but I will never doubt my romantic marine again:)  
The most beautiful part of the day was the little walk we like to take by the coast in Dana Point.  Valentines Day was the perfect day to go too!  The fog rolling in was unbelievable, the pictures can't even do it justice.

Mothers day 2013

I made this picture, botanical, concoction for my mom for mothers day, but I am having a really hard time because I want it for my own house!  It was really cheap! Only four bucks for the whole thing!  I got a decent frame with ugly picture inside from DI, picked up some burlap from the local Joann's, found some old postcards from under my mom's bed, and there you have it, a cute natural looking picture for any room in the house!

DI Up-cycled

The other day I came across a jean vest in Gap, I wanted it so bad but it was way over priced!  So I wandered over to the DI one day thinking I could easily find one there, I didn't!  But I did find a really cute jean jacket that I would have no problem cutting up, so this is the result, jacket with removed arms, jean vest adorably up-cycled to perfection.

Cruisin' in many ways

A few more pics of our cruise, want to go back so bad!

Cozumel, enjoying a nice cold coconut, and petting our friend Boe.

Scootering around the island.

It rained on us for awhile, but as my enthusiastic husband likes to say, "just think of it like an adventure!" and so it was.

This picture doesn't do this beach justice, it was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen!  We were a little worried though about the notice sign to my left, the whole time we were swimming we were terrified of getting eaten by lethal sharks, or stung by mutant jelly fish, turns out it only says rip tide.

Goodbye Cozumel.


The ghetto local version of Dunn River Falls, but we loved it.  Notice how sun burnt we are from Cozumel.

The taxi ride was a little nerve racking, and we were hustled many times by many different locals, but what the heck!        it was beautiful there and we will have stories from this trip for the rest of our life, and our grandchildren will get a good laugh.  :)
