So out of all the princesses my blond hair hazel eyed daughter could be for Halloween this year she picked snow white! She made a very cute Snow white. we went to several different parties where she was able to dress up and was so excited to do so. holidays are so much more fun now that she is understanding them and participating more. I love it!

Princesses on ice show

Part of Savannah's Birthday gift was tickets to see Disney Princesses on ice. A few of our friends from Church were all going together so we got 3 tickets. Scott was unable to go. (due to his new job!! Thats another story) So we named a few people that savannah could take with her and she picked "Haddie Starwars" (My mom) Haddie was thrilled to go with us. We took bart and then walked to the oakland arena. We had so much fun. It was a good show. I still think savannah would have enjoyed it more if she was 5. but none the less we waved to the princesses and had a really good time!

Savannah turned 3!!!!

Savannah had a great 3rd birthday. Here are some photos to prove it! She had so much fun with her princess party. i still can't believe I have a 3 year old but hey time fly's when your having fun!

Savannah trying to be mom and dad!

So savannah got into my make up one day and put mascara on. she came out into the kitchen and said "Look Im a mom!!!" how could I not take a picture of this!

It was not more than a day later she colored with ink pen on her face, and said "Look im daddy!!"

I know the pictures don't show it very well but . . . it made me laugh.
I am trying to get better at this blogging thing. I just up loaded a lot of pictures off my camera last night and will be blogging a lot soon!

This is Scott. Shaleah has decided I should type stuff because she feels that I think of more entertaining things to write about. Of course she may want to edit my more creative writings. I am noticing that I may want to type in word and paste to this html editor since there is no spell check. And now... the rest of the story...

So... apparently I spelled everything in the last paragraph correctly because there is spell check on this. Nice. Savannah is turning 3 next month. Shaleah and Stefanie took Savannah to the park to do a photo shoot to send invites to the family for a party. As you can see she is getting bigger. When we took her to Disneyland and Legoland around mother's day she was almost 34 inches tall. By the end of summer she is well over 38 inches tall. If you ask Savannah about her size she will let you know "mommy wants me to stay small for her"

Speaking of speaking she talks non stop at home. When she is in public she is all or nothing. Shaleah took her to a hair appointment the other day and a little old lady was asking about her name, age, etc and Savannah informed her "I can talk" and proceeded to answer her questions. Savannah loves to jump, bounce and run any chance she gets. She also is big into "helping you." She can be with mommy, daddy, or grandma, etc. and needs to be involved in every step of every task you undertake. I hope she always wants to sweep and clean. She has the energy and personality of several kids packed into one. Maybe that's why she's an only child.

Shaleah is still a bow making machine in her free time. she may be adding some pictures of them soon. She needs the computer so, I'll be back later.

Back on Track . . .

Well I should say back on treadmill but that sounds strange! I am the worst blogger ever. I really want to do better. When it is quite and savannah is napping and I have 2 hours to myself my mind starts to argue with itself. You should go exercise says my fat belly, you should work on bows or blog says my mind, you should sit and be lazy watch some TV, says my tired body. More often that not lately the fat belly wins. I have been spending a lot of my "me" time working out on my days off. On the days I do work I just get up before the rest of the world and work out then. Some friends of mine have started a Biggest looser weight loss blog that I have been contributing too for the past 5 weeks. We all put $10 into the pot and whoever has the biggest % of weight loss after 10 weeks gets the pot. I was not doing very well with it for about 4 weeks. I was not putting the 110% that I know I can put into something when I put my mind to it. But something snapped inside of me and I just started to run. I told myself "I know i can do this, I know I can eat better. I know how easy it is to eat 200 calories, but I also know how much it takes to burn 200 calories." I only had two more baby LB to go. Well I did it.My baby weight is gone. Now don't get excited. Its no where near time to put that weight back on. I would never dream of starting another pregnancy at this weight ever again! I am now going to loose what i call "My Happy Married weight" Ya I have 30 of those LB to loose. There is no way that all 30 LB will come off in the amount of time I am giving myself. But hey I am going to try my very best. I am going to take this new sense of power and (pardon the pun) RUN WITH IT!!! There is just a sense on Empowerment when you accomplish a goal. So with that I have posted a few pictures of my new favorite things in my new life!

My shoes, ipod, water bottle, exercise ball, weights, Bob and jillian on DVD, and most of all my treadmill. I am really enjoying this new lease on life. I hope it inspires you to be the best you can be. I may not blog more often but hey its worth it!

Our Bow blog!

We are working on red white and blue bows get your orders in!

Thursday, March 12, 2009


I warned everyone when I started this that I am really bad at updating my blog and I don't have much to say!
So since the last up date (january 8th) lets see what has happened. I turned 30 on January 25th. My wonderful husband Scott planned a surprise party for me. It was fun for everyone to get together.
Savannah is growing by leaps and bounds. She knows so much more than I think a 2 year old should know. Here is my most updated picture.

She really keeps us on our toes. Savannah and I were at a craft store yesterday, a woman that works there was putting something on a low shelf and had a hard time getting back up. The woman said "OMG" and savannah being the fearless two year old looked at the woman (with pointed finger out and other had on hip) and said "we say oh my goodness not oh my God, you need a time out!" I explained to the woman that we don't use the lords name in vain in our home. She apologized to savannah and said she will try to say oh my goodness instead. I informed savannah that she needed to thank the lady for saying sorry. Savannah said "thank you for saying sorry." And we turned to keep looking for our buttons.
The reason for shopping at the craft store was to buy a few more bow making supplies. For those of you who I haven't told yet, I am going public and selling my bows.
There is a store in Castro Valley called "Village Crafters". It is in the village shopping center behind Ross. You rent space in there and they sell your product for you! I am really excited about getting my bows out there for sale. I took some photos today of a few bows to give you an idea what they will look like.

I can't take all the credit. my sister Stefanie has been helping me out and is making bows to sell as well.
I have been so busy during Savannah's naps making bows. I really have a hard time doing any computer work or bow stuff while she is awake. She is quite the helper. She got a great idea the other day that she needed to clean Auntie Tami's Shower. (my co-worker spends the night once a week at my house so the office is auntie Tami's bedroom and the hall bathroom is auntie Tami's bathroom) Here is Savannah cleaning auntie Tami's shower.

She is just so much fun! Anyways I think that all the news I have for now. We are just moving along and living life.

Mom we don't say . . .

So savannah has gotten really good at telling EVERYONE what words we can and can't say. We don't say Crap, stupid, and oh my gosh. So the other day Savannah Was saying her ABC'S and it came out ABCDEEEHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. When she was all done I asked her "What about F and G" (go ahead say it to your self for a minute) So ya it sounds bad. I had scott rolling on the floor and saying mommy we don't talk like that. Who knew the ABC's Were so bad?
