Happy Father's Day

What a fun Father's Day! We greeted Daddy this morning with Hot coffee, a card and Strawberry Poptart's. (I know.. Funny huh!) Then it was out to Breakfast at our favorite Vegan cafe here in Utah, Vertical Diner. So yummy! After breakfast we took Lev to see Toy Story then I made a nice dinner for everybody. It was a great day! Happy Father's Day again babe, we love you so much! You are so great to us, I can't imagine my life without you.
Giving Dad his card:

Happy little Brighton:

Levee stole a poptart!:

Levee's first movie outing!!

Today we took Levee to Jordan Commons for his first Movie experience! Toy Story 3 in IMAX, He loved it! We bought him a little kids popcorn treat tray that came with a Slurpee, he thought it was just the coolest thing ever, So cute. Once in the theater he sat patiently waiting for the movie to start on his cute little booster seat with his blanket. He did pretty good for about 30 minutes then wanted to get up, run around and play. (As expected for a 2 year old!) Nonetheless, he still had a great time. We were so glad to be able to take him!

Here he is running to the doors of the Theater, he just couldn't wait!




Loved it! (I think he was more excited for this than the movie!)


3D glasses, he wore them for about 2 seconds.. Didn't like them much.

Fell asleep after a while :) Cute!

Gotta have em'!

Seriously? How ADORABLE are these! I'm going out to get some tomorrow for the boys. I love that comercial!



Busy days are ahead.

Well, I am almost done with this CNA class (Thank God) Although I have met some cool people, it's a re-run for me. But it's okay :) So Friday is my last day in the class, then I have a bunch of Clinical's coming up in the next 2 weeks (starting at 5:30 am which means I have to get up around 4-4:30..yikes!), then 3 different tests to get the certification. (The class was required to get my RN) This along with work, studying, Summer plans, my Birthday and Nursing School starting on July 19th, Life is going to be crazy busy! As crazy as it sounds, I am looking forward to it!

Not Me Monday



Here goes my first "Not me Monday post"

I did not spend 3 hours on my blog last night when I was supposed to be cleaning..

I did not go over my Weight Watcher's points... Again today..

I did not Use my credit card again today, after promising myself I wouldn't

I did not go to Barnes And Noble yesterday to read fitness and People magazine when I was supposed to be studying.. Okay, I studied a little, but not as much as I should ;)

I did not have a fabulous Interview for a company I have been trying to get a job at for a couple years now, to call the office manager back to tell her that I couldn't work the full time hours they were hiring for. Pretty sure I blew that one :(

I did not just completely book the next 2 weeks out for Clinical's, home work, school, Birthday plans, and work.

Oh wait, I did just do ALL of that. DAMN!

Thank goodness for "Not me Monday's"

I love this man.












He is amazing, Seriously. I Can't imagine my life without him. Loves you babe!

"Mamma, wata fowers?"

Our Pumpkins, Mini-Pumpkins, cucumbers and tomatoes are finally getting bigger! And growing beautifully. It's so exciting, especially for Levee. He LOVES to water them. Anytime we go into the back yard to play, "Mamma, wata fowers?" It is SO cute. We'll be moving the larger pumpkins into a bigger pot here soon. Those are my favorite! I really hope I don't kill them.. Because, If you didn't know, Halloween is my favorite Holiday and I have always wanted to grow my own pumpkins and carve them. So, really hoping they make it!







Thankful Thursday.

What a PREFECT day for this post! Really.

I found out this morning that I got accepted into the Nursing program I have been applying to for a year now! Third time is the charm I guess? They only accept 12 into each cohort, over 50 applied! So that, in and of itself is pretty cool. Last year when I was applying, I was pregnant with Brighton (and must have been crazy ha ha) had some complications and was unable to get everything I needed to, done in time for the deadlines, so finally! Here we are today. :) I am so excited and Thankful for this! I can finally say, "Yeah, I'm a Nursing student" Ha! Yay!

So a very big Thank you for all of the support from all of you, my family and friends! This is awesome! Ahhhhh, still can't believe it. I almost want to pinch myself.. This is a long awaited dream to accomplish for me, and I finally did it. Cool!

I got accepted into the Nursing Program!!!!!!!!!!! WAHOO!

I know, the title is totally filled with excitement right? Well you should have seen me, and my excitement when I got the phone call this morning! Ahhhhhhhhhh! I was having a not-so-great-morning... And man, did this make it 1000x better! My start date is July 19th. I go into the school next week to finalize my schedule and financial aid :)

This is seriously such an amazing day for me and my family! We are all so excited! I know it's not going to be easy, but I'm ready for it. I especially can't wait for clinical's. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a Labor and Delivery Nurse, and still do. But I think the clinical's will be a great experience to see what field you really want to go in to. So anyways, this was my great news of the day and I'm so Thankful to be having this opportunity! Wish me luck :)

Some random Friday evening thoughts.

-I went over my weight watchers points today (Only by 2 points).. All for 2 damn mint oreo's. But wow, were they yummy. Worth it? Probably not. Weekly balance down now as well. PS: I love the program. Other than tonight, I'm rockin' WW!


-Just finished watching Gangs of New York with Eric and Micah. Not the biggest fan, I'm gonna be honest.
-The anticipation of waiting to find out if I made it into Nursing school is killing me. Not sure what my reaction will be if I don't make it in. Nervous for next week. That's when the letter will be coming in the mail.

-A new guy got hired at work. Secretly. Found out by coming to work.. "Huh? Who's the new guy?" Seriously? I guess communication is too difficult for some people... How annoying.
-I love that my kitchen is FINALLY clean, it's only taken me 2 days now to clean it nicely. I love Green works cleaning products.

-Bought a new candle tonight, the Febreeze Brazillian flavor. Now that the house is clean, I wanna light it.
-It's supposed to be 85* here tomorrow. Finally, nice weather! Were going to the Living Planet Aquarium tomorrow with the babies and some friends. They have a new Penguin exhibit. Pretty sure the kids will love it :) Well Levee at least.
-I'm officially addicted to diet mountain dew, and coke zero. mmmmmmmmmmmm.
-I probably should get on top of getting Brighton moved into his crib... The swing he sleeps in, BARELY moves any more he weighs so much. LOL!
-Our Garden of Pumpkins, tomatoes and cucumbers is finally growing! Levee loves to water them :)
-Mad at myself for not going to the gym today
-Went "cleaning and baby" supply shopping at my favorite place, Target today. Spent WAY too much $$. Yeah.. Like 150.00. Yikes! But we were out of a lot. Now I am actually a little excited to clean.

-I REALLY enjoy my blog, and blogging all together! I wish I were a little better at it though.
Apparently I have a lot on my mind tonight, glad I have some where to post my thoughts.

Excitement for Eclipse!

25 Days and counting down!

I am really looking forward to going and seeing Eclipse! I live in Utah, so pure excitement to have one of the movies come out in a different month than November. Me and some friends bought our tickets about a month ago. Were going to the event: "Party on the plaza" for the midnight showing. It's going to be a blast! The group: Twilight Moms, are hosting the event and having a ton of booths, bands, everything related to the movie. So, just as we did with New Moon we'll be going dressed up to the Tee and ready for a great night! We go all out.. Kinda nerds like that though.
Almost time!




Ummmmmm...... yeahhhhhh. *drooling.

Yay!


Love her!

I know I'm a little late, but here is my first "Wishful Wednesday" post/Topic

'I wish' .... I could be the one and only ______ in SATC2!!

As with a lot of us, there is a tie! I love Carrie and Charlotte!! In real life though, I am more like Charlotte. But... Carrie rocks. Along with her: Career, style, hair, everything. My favorite thing about her though, is her squeel/laugh! Has anybody else noticed that? I love it! Charlotte's style is way cute too. And she is so proper and sweet. I loved the movie! Some of Samantha's lines made me laugh pretty hard.

Loved this dress! She looked fabulous in it!


My favorite outfit she wore in the movie


After me and my friends went and saw the movie, we went to a local lounge "red Door" and got some Martini's to celebrate.

5 Question Friday!


1. If you could go back to college would you change your major? Or, if you were to go to college right now...what major would you choose?

Answer: As of right now, I am still waiting to hear If I got into the Nursing program at UCC! But someday I would like to study either hair or Photography.

2. What do you love most about your home?

Answer: My kitchen and all my water fountains in it.

3. What types of books do you like to read (if you like to read at all)?

Answer: I'm not a big book reader, but when I have time I enjoy the Twilight Saga, and all of the Jane Austen collection. Also, as weird as it is.. Gray's Anatomy Medical book. I love to study Anatomy and Physiology, hence Nursing major :)

4. What is the grossest thing you've ever eaten?

Answer: Hmm..... GINGER!! uggggggkkkk. It comes with Sushi, and I decided to try it a while ago. Discusting!

5. If you HAD to be a character on a TV show, whom would you be?


Answer: Izzie Stevens, Grey's Anatomy. Love her character!

On a mission......

What a moment! Brighton was on a mission to get to Levee's pretzels and the package of baby wipes. Let's just say, he succeeded! So glad I got all of these pictures! Too cute.








Thankful Thursday.

So as I have browsed some other blogs, I have seen some really cute ideas. This, along with Wordless Wednesday, A picture is worth a thousand words, and 5 question Friday, this is one of my favorites. I'm going to do my best to keep on top of the entries! In life, we really have so much to be Thankful for. My top pick: My 2 sweet little boys. I know everyone says their kids are the cutest, but really, mine are too. Seriously.

Levin: Has this adorable little thing going on right now.. Anytime he does something "strenuous" such as, getting back up after tripping, or lifting a heavier toy, he says: "Oooooooooooy!! Ohhhh my gosh." I just can't get enough of it! It is too funny.

Brighton: Almost 8 months old right now! Already! We just moved him into his "Big boy" car seat because he had out grown the carrier. He does this cute little arm flapping thing.. Like he's a little birdy about to take off for flight.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of my sweet babies~

Brighton! Always, always smiling. It's amazing :)


Here you can see Levee's poor little ouchies from accidentally touching the stove top.

Brighton munchin' down some licorice in Mesquite. His first little vacation! PS: He hated the pool.



Levee and his Salsa.... He loves it!!


Levin, 19 months old. One of the sweetest pictures of him, aww his silly face!(screaming at the top of his lungs)


He loves dumping out treats and sneaking into the wipes.. "Ooops Mommy!"
