Signing In

Well Hello everyone!! I when to my moms the first of December for 10days and that held of a few days of my crochet making!! It was so nice to be seeing my family!! It was SUPER cold though!! I did survive the Coldness by the hair on my chin, lol. CJ had a blast out there and was ALWAYS wanting to go outside in the COLD!! What a crazy child!!

When we got back from our trip our house was all packed out and there where TONS of boxes ALL OVER the house!! We are PCSing to VA so that is why our stuff was in boxes. The next day they came to put the boxes in the truck and send it to VA!! I spend as much time as I could with my Bestie Eileen. I sure do miss her!!

Our driving time from TX to NC took 2 1/2 days!! We left the las day we cleaned. I was pretty pissed off about that lol. I had not had good rest and I wanted a good nights sleep but I lost. It was me against Chuck and his mom so you know how that out come ended lol. I was SOOOO happy when we stopped driving on the 16th one day before my bday!! We didnt do anything on my bday the 17th. I was just happy to be off the road and at my MILs place.

We are still in NC waiting to see what is going on with our house. I want it to sell!! So once it sells I think we will be looking for place in VA. Everything Keeps changing abou what we are going to do so I hope by the first we have a set idea of what we are doing.

Well I would upload picture BUT this internet at my MILS is to slow so I cant upload pictures lol. I hope everyone is ready for xmas and is having a safe holiday season!!

Friday, November 27, 2009


So I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know that we did. We went and hung out at my husbands friends house and then later on we went to my friend Eileen's house for dessert and to plan out our Black Friday stores to hit!! It was a relax day, a little crisp for TX weather.

Not much has been going on really. We are getting ready to be relocated to Norfolk. I met my friend Eileen she is a wonderful Lady and I really hate that I will be moving away..... it seems like we have known each other forever.

Im sure this blog entry is going to be all over the place, lol. So how many of you all went out today for the Crazy Sales? I know I did but we only hit Wal-Mart and Target and that was all. Those were the only two places we really wanted to go to. I got everything I wanted to get for CJ but spent to much, lol. I also went to Joanns later in the day and saved over $108 with their sale they were having. I was super excited about that. Now I just have to get to sewing :D and making PJ pants for CJ.

I just wanted to jump on and hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.

~ Happy Holidays!!!

So heres what has gone on

in our life since the last time I have blogged. Its been forever and a day. It just seems like my time and day just disappear. With CJ being so much more active and to top it off having a 18month old I watch, ya my days fly, lol. So my time just goes right there, lol.

So this is what has been going on since the last time I blogged, lol. I know that I never went back and added picture from our trip, bad me lol. It just takes forever on this blogger to do it! It took me forever to unpack from our trip. I just get super lazy lol. CJ and I got sick. The first week is was me and then the second week it was CJ so that was no fun at all and to top it all off I had the little with me too.

I started wroking on Christmas gifts for the family. That is coming along pretty nicely I must say, lol. Just been busy making things and have not been in the scrappy mood at all. So thats pretty much it, lol. I have been getting into a lot of crocheting swaps which is something new and fun to me. I know I sound like an old lady lol. Its just something that calms me down a ton!

Well yesterday was Halloween of course because today is Nov 1st!! Can you freaking believe it? Gosh where has the time gone? We were VERY busy which is a first!! We ran some errands in the morning, went to the pumpkin patch in the afternoon and then to the Zoo for the Zoo Boo trick o treating which was fun!!Here are a few pictures:

So those are just a few of the pictures that were taken. There was a ton but didnt want to upload them all.

Chuck also reenlisted for like 4more years on the 20th or the 23rd of Oct. cant really remember the exact date. It was pretty cool. Oh ya I also went to my First Navy Ball and that was a BLAST!! It was a 1940s theme ball!! It was awesome here are some pictures from those events!!
These are from the ball obviously lol. Here are some pictures from the reenlistment ceremony!

Ok and I think I am not up to date with everything!! Sorry to be so late and post a long post!! See you all later. Enjoy your time with your family and Happy November!!

Forever and a Day

Well I have not wrote on my blog is such a LONG time. I don't even know why I still have it because probably no one ever checks it, lol. So I think I have decided to stop doing the 365 day project only because I dont do things everyday that are exciting. I just stay at home and watch the kids. So thats really not exciting at all.

So I guess I will give a brief update and what not. My lovely son is 2yrs old. I had his bday party a week before because we went on vacation to California. He had a blast at the party we had for him here. I was suprised that we actually had a ton of kids come and celebrate it with him. I made him a cake, first cake I have ever made and I also made his invites.

Here is the cake and the Birthday boy eating his cake!! He loved his cake even though I didnt like the way it came out. I guess you are your worst critic, right? It was so much fun seeing all the little kids playing and all of the adults getting along too.

We went to Cali to head to DisneyLand for CJs 2nd bday. That was so much fun. My in laws and parents met us which was SUPER awesome! CJ had a blast! Let me tell you he is a rollercoaster junkie! He LOVES them!! We did see a TON of my family that lives in LA and it was so nice to be surrounded by family. Even though I had not seen them since 2005 it felt like I have been there all along. Family is just so warm and welcoming. I so cant wait til we live closer to family! So here is a few pictures of our trip. I will try to explain what is going on in the pictures.(I'll try to post these soon, the picture thing is messing up).

We did so much while we were in Cali. My husband and father in law went to a Dodgers and an Angels game. We went to Disneyland, checked out the City Walk and went shopping at the Alley. We also went on a Hollywood bus tour which was super fun. There was so much we did.

On our way to Cali my husband surprised me with a mini vacation to Tombstone, AZ!! If you like western and history go there. We also hit it up on the way back, if you havent guessed yet we drove all the way to Cali! In tombstone we went in a silver mine, say some of the historic building. I fell in love with that place.

Well our house is for sale so if anyone is moving to San Antonio, TX or is looking to buy a house here please, please let me know because we wanna sell our house. We will be moving at the end of the year to VA and need to get this house sold. So hopefully we can get a buyer.

I have started making Christmas gifts and I am super excited about it. I just hope everyone likes it. I will post a slide show of pictures later. This is not working with me today. Well I think I have updated as much as I can in a short message, I hope.

9June - To now

Ok I am back to finish up catching you all up on whats been going on.
So here are my men. CJ wanted to be a Big Boy and sit next to his daddy while they ate lunch. He absolutely did not want to sit in his highchair so in the regular chair he went in. There's Chuck with his mutton chops and other facial hair. I am glad he is back at work because I DO NOT have to see that facial hair. I do NOT like it at all. He looks completely different with and without facial hair. They enjoyed their mac and cheese, lol.
****And this is where I stop taking so many pictures for each day, so now they are going to be here and there with the dates and what not****
Just another day on our side of town. We didnt do much but just stay at home. CJ was being silly today and I wanted to take a picture of him. He actually posed like this, little fruit cake. He was so silly everytime I snapped the camera he actually had a different pose for me. He thought he was hiliarious and his daddy was being tormented. Not much happened but just staying at home and chilling out.
Once again another picture of CJ showing me his toy! YAY! LOL. There he is sitting play with his toy and yes in his other hand he has bottle caps. Why does he have bottle caps? Not the slightest idea. He was having fun stacking them and pressing them again the bottom of his foot. My child finds so weird ways to entertain himself. He was also trying to fit his toy in the bottle cap, weird child of mine, lol.
So we bought CJ some Lightsabers or whatever they are called. He LOVES those dang things. We have to hide them because he annoys me with them. He ONLY wants to play with me with them. If you hand one to his daddy he gets mad and throws a fit! So we put them up because I am not going to play with those dang things ALL day long, lol. He loves them though.
We took CJ out in the backyard and blew some bubbles for him. We needed to get out of the house for a little bit. It was hot of course but hey he needed to run around and we needed to not feel so claustrophobic either. So here is a good picture of CJ looking at the bubble. I was not a good bubble maker but Chuck did an amazing job at it lol. CJ had a blast and he did not want to come back into the house. We are dealing with terrible twos and its driving us crazy!
Well since CJ enjoyed the bubbles so much the other day I went out and bought him the bubble lawnmower. He LOVES it. He doesnt like ANYONE messing with it. Granted he wont take it outside and use it but he will use it in the house!! So now I have bubbles to clean up after. Oh how fun that is NOT to do, lol. Oh well such is life lol.
HAHA can you tell CJ had a hold of the Camera. CJ sure does have some good camera skills. LOL...not really but he sure does try too. He thinks is so funny taking pictures. He will take the picture laugh at it and show it to you even though it has already disappeared off of the screen. Sometimes I have to take it away from him because he messes with the settings to much and ya I dont want him to mess it up. He is a little photographer when he wants to be.
So this basket is really for his toys that are in the loft. Well CJ decided to dump ALL of his toys ALL over the loft and sit in the basket and tear it apart. Here he is sitting in the basket and showing me what he pulled apart. He sat in that thing for a good while just picking away. Thank goodness he didnt completely destroy the poor thing and it still holds his toys in. I just have to make sure that he doesnt tear it all apart because that stuff is no fun to clean.
21 June:
So Chuck wanted to take a nap on the couch. I did my best to try and keep CJ away from him. Well here is CJ bugging his daddy with a book and of course Chuck is trying to ignore him and sleep still. I swear you cant get a nap in if CJ is up! He is 22months and boy time does go by fast!
Well as I was getting ready for the day CJ was messing with the cabinets. Well I look down and this is what I see! He was hiding there and he was having fun. Good there there isnt anything under there that he can hurt himself with. He kept himself busy and out of my way. He did not want to come out once I was done. I had to drag him out and he was Mad!!
So I put on my rob to keep myself warm. CJ went to his room and grabbed his robe. He kept that on until I got him dressed for the day. It was super cute! He LOVES it so much! He looks like such a little man when hes wearing it. He will point out all of the men on his robe. Hes one cute boy!
Here we are chilling out watching TV. Not to sure what we are watching but here we are lol. CJ is ALWAYS on me some how. Talk about being a mama's boy. He is so going to deny that he was when he is older but I have pictures to prove it lol. I love having a mama's boy but some days it drives me crazy because all he wants to do is just sit on me the whole day. Talk about no personal space at all, lol. I love him to death though and I wouldnt have it any other way.
So today I spent some time sewing. I made this shirt well minus the sleeves and pockets, I made it all by myself without any help at all. It can out sooo cute. We where watch all the Pirates of the Carribean movies while I sewed. It was a good day. I ended up finishing the shirt. I want to make MORE!! I just need to get the fabric for it. I loved the way it came out and I was so proud of myself!
So here is the shirt that I made. The headband I am wearing I also made that too. I love it! Its a very comfortable shirt. The headband I dont think it looks right on my head lol, I know I am weird. I Love my shirt and I am very proud of myself for making it!
So I crocheted this littler turtle for my friends daughter. Well as soo and I was done with it CJ fell in love with it. He was just SUPER excited about it and was giving it kisses and everything. Obviously I didnt make this for him becase of the colors...Pink and green,lol. So I have to make my friends daughter another turtle lol. This took me a day to make with taking a break here and there. He really loves this turtle. I will have to make him one that are boy colors lol.
So we went to the Duck pond. I Couldnt just pick one picture. I choose to. These are my favorite. My husband and I dont really have many pictures today and of course CJ feeding the ducks. He actually had a duck feed out of his hands. The duck nibbled on him and CJ thought that was funny. After we fed the ducks we walked down to the little play area. CJ was having a blast running around that darn thing. He did fall about 2ft from the ground and hit his head. He is alright and what not. Chuck said I had more fun feeding the ducks then CJ did. I Did have fun, it was nice getting out of the house!
Well Happy 4th of July!!  My cousin came over to spend the 4th with us. He is out stationed at Ft.Hood....Kileen, tx which is like 3hrs from here. It was nice having him here. Well until it turned into a Bash Jackie day/weekend. We didnt do much on the 4th let alone that whole weekend. We tried to catch the fireworks from our house but they started at 10pm and we didnt know and we were waiting outside at 9 lol. So we just stayed here at home grilled out and got drunk. Our neighbors had a party and they had fireworks so CJ did get to see fireworks. They were setting them off as I was trying to put him to bed so I let him stay up and watch them go off. He thought they were awesome.
So we rented some games for the xbox 360 and had a blast playing. We got Mortal COmbat vs DC and OMG that was awesome!! I had not played that game in FOREVER!!! I kicked their butts on it. CJ did really good on it too. He almost beat both my cousin and husbands butt at the game. Here is CJ trying to play guitar hero. He is a true little gamer at heart! We know how to bred them the right way lol.
So I stood up way to late the night before and I had to watch danielle. OMG was I super tired! Well Ms. Dani had a really bad accident and got all over her clothes and my floor so I had to take her a bath and wash her clothes. She had a fever to top it all off. Well her daddy is a Greenbay Packers fan and we are Colts fan so just because she had no extra clothes here we dressed her in CJs Colts jersey so her daddy could see lol. Dani ended up leaving early that day and her daddy was like OMG what have you done to my daughter lol. So this was the funny highlight of the day. Oh ya and I slept most of the day because I was so freaking tired!
So I have been busy making CJ a monkey! Making these toys are so much fun!! Well here I am super excited because I finished the head!! IT looks so cute to me lol. I was super excited to get the head sewn together and stuffed. I had to hid the head from CJ because he would of been playing with it, lol. So I am off now working on the rest of the monkey!
So I got my New MFFX mineral foundation. I must say it is the first time ever using it! It is very light and I couldnt tell I had it on. Right now the only problem that I am having is trying to find the right color combo so its Not to light or to dark on me. That is the trick for me because I have never used this kind of foundation before. I liked the way my makeup came out though but the pictures i was taking was not good for me lol.
So CJ and I went to the Olive Garden with my friend Kelley and her two kids. This is my look for the day, lol. I had so much fun going out to lunch. CJ was HORRIBLE though. We slept in til 9am and he was ready for his nap by 11. I was so embarrassed I didnt know what to do. We had the all you can eat soup, salad and breadsticks! SUPER yummy. I had Chicken Gnocci or something like that. It was Awesome.
So I finished the MONKEY!!! YAY!!! I was so super excited about it. I worked really hard on it and I think it can out well. CJ had not seen it because I finished it when he was in bed. I was looking over the pattern that I printed out and the pattern that i have save to my computer and found out that my printer didnt print all of the pages. So ya there are some mistakes to this monkey! I loved the way it turned out. It is HUGE too, lol!
So CJ really loves his monkey. He sleeps with it and brings it into the room with him. Here he is getting ready to pass out with his monkey and turtle, lol. He is so cute! He really loves everything that I make him. Its so awesome to have some appreciate what you do. Well this is all the pictures that I have. I will do my best to try and keep up with the 365 day project but we shall see. Like I said before nothing exciting happens in my life so I may post here and there. Thanks for reading my LONG posts!

28 May - To Now

Ok so I REALLY know that it has been FOREVER since I have last updated. I HONESTLY did not think it was this long! I think I have given up on the 365 day project BECAUSE I seriously dont do anything that is interesting everyday and everyday is the same just a different day. I will of course keep this updated but I am not sure if I will be doing the 365 or not. So here is what I have been up to since the last time I have updated.
28 May:
So today I worked on Twinchies. I am hosting the twinchie swap in my Cafemom group. This is the first time I have ever done twinchies. It was fun but very hard for me to decorate a 2x2 piece of cardstock. It was nice thinking outside the bubble and making something so small and cute.
29 May:

So my husband had his gallbladder removed. I had to take him in early in the morning and I waited all morning for him. I started to get scared because I had not heard anything from anyone and it was like 10:30am and I had dropped him off at 5:30am. They ended up calling me up at 11am to tell me that my husband was out of surgery and wanted me there. I was so relieved when they called me to let me know because I was going crazy worrying about all the what ifs. When we got there he looked really good for just getting out of surgery. He said he felt amazing for just getting out of surgery. He was explaining how the surgery went and how his stitches looked. I started to black out and almost passed out. Yes I know I am a whimp! My hubby laughed at me and said you want to be a nurse? LOL. Yes I do want to be a nurse but if I am around that kind of stuff I dont get all whimpy and what not. So he made it through surgery fine and he has the next 3wks off.

30 May:

Well today I worked on my Recipe cards for a group I was in on It was fun making them. Sorry the picture is sideways and I dont know how to change it, lol. I had fun making these because I got to use some paper that I bought and it is all sparkly and pretty. My recipe cards came out good, but simple just the way I like it. We didnt do much today really.

31 May:

We went to rent a movie. I let CJ down and ya that was a big mistake. Here he is sitting on the floor picking out his movie, lol. We didnt rent any movies instead we bought like 4 movies for SUPER cheap! We went through those movie so quickly lol. I guess thats what happens when there is much to do and your hubby cant do much because of his surgery.

Well this is what happens when you take your eye off of your child for a second. Here CJ is Praising his "art work" on my wall. Yes it was PERMANENT marker. I tried to wash it off the wall but NO LUCK at all! It can back up! So now I need to figure out how to get the marker off of the wall. I really couldnt be mad at him so I laughed. I know I am such a big kid myself but what can you do? I dont want CJ to think we are always made at him. We told him that was a no no and he has not written on the walls again.
2June: you ever look at your spouse or significant other and think about how much you love them and how they have changed your life? Even though my husband and I have hard times we make it through it and all is better. My husband was there for me in SO many ways that I am grateful that he came into my life at the time that he did. Without my husband in my life I honestly dont know where I would be. I cant imagine my life with out him. He means so much to me and I am grateful that he deals with me. I love this man to death. He is my world.

Here are my two men. It was raining hard and CJ wanted to touch the rain. Here he is trying to reach for the water. He was having a good time trying ti catch the rain. Then once the lightening and thunder started he wanted nothing to do with the rain. He had fun while it lasted. It was to cute watching the two of them outside trying to catch the rain.


CJ had his first strawberry! He LOVED it!! He wanted to eat ALL of the ones that we had. He didnt like the green tops, which was to funny because he would say eww and would pluck the tops off. CJ is a character in every way possible.


So this is a rare siting! Here is my husband reading his book! Lets just say we were SO BORED with staying home and not knowing what to do that we resourced out to reading books, lol. I was cleaning and he was helping out with CJ to keep him outta my hair. I caught my hubby reading his book. I dont mind that he is reading I actually wish he read more but ya he can only read for so long before he needs to do other things lol.

Have you ever altered a paperclip before? Well I had not until I joined in on a swap. It was fun but I went a LITTLE over board and had to make what seemed like a gazillion! CJ LOVED them. With each one he would go show his daddy and play with them for a little bit, lol. It had fun making them. I actually used my cricut for these. I bought the mickey mouse and hello kitty dies though. There were fun but I will never sign up for a crap load of groups lol.


Yum, yum! Look at that popsicle!! CJ LOVES them. Lets just say that if I wanted to eat one I had to wait til he was in bed sleeping. He wanted ALL of them to himself lol. So here is my baby boy enjoying a raspberry popsicl and showing me my stamp with my name. I love this kid more then life its self.


So I wanted to get a picture of Cj. Well he had other things in mind. He wanted me to take a picture of him holding one of his toys. Well more like he wanted a picture of his toy. He laughed when I showed him this picture. I bet you he thinks this is the greatest picture, lol. He shows me his toys all the time so I can take a picture of them. Doesnt he know I dont want a picture of his toy? I want a picture of him, my baby boy!! LOL. He is a crazy kid and I love watching him grow up each day.
*****Well its bed time for me. Its midnight and I need to hit the hay. I will finish updating this tomorrow. Night Night!! *****************
