Better late...

Since it will be February in two days...I thought I would post some Christmas pics :-) I'm good like that...

I took quite a few, shocking I know. Here are some of my favorites. 

We have so much fun doing the Nativity with the munchkins.

This little one loved his coloring books and was content to sit with Papa and color for hours.
And this sweet girl just loved everything. Watching her open gifts was magical.

My amazing Dad, who knows me so well, got me the perfect gift. Completely unexpected. It's in this cute box. 
Yeah. Nightmares for a week. Thanks dad. 

My Zumba instructor gave us these cute ornaments that she made. 

Okay so my parents really do know me well. They got me this:
Yup! A little movie theatre popcorn maker. I love it. I constantly has popcorn in it. 

Thank you!!!!

Family, and anyone else that cares, here are the rest:

I was having fun with the new Picasa collage maker :-)

The sound is messed up...just mute it for now. :-)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve and that you are having a great year so far!

Hello strangers! I have not blogged in quite a while. Not sure why. Just not feeling it. I'm going to try harder though. 

Today will be short. I want to share something cool...from Pinterest...yeah, yeah, I know. But this is very cool. 

A couple of weeks ago I repinned a cute, simple image about having a great mom:

I liked it. I have a great mom and  I love her. I pinned it. 

Then the cool thing started. People started repinning it. A lot of people. And commenting. And every comment was about how much they loved their mom. 

Here's the status as of today: 
9,262 repins to other boards and 76 comments. 

That is a lot of love right there. And it just really made me happy. There are a lot of good people out there and a lot of love. And if Pinterest crashes and dies next week or starts to get annoying like Facebook, I will still have this amazing moment of shared love with almost 10,000 other people... total strangers...and that is brilliant.

The end.

I'm popular! Finally!

Kidding. I'm not really. But I feel that way today! I've officially made almost 3,000 people smile. Yahoo!

You know my little Pinterest obsession? Well a cute saying that I posted (I didn't even make it up, just repinned it) has received a lot of repins and likes. And today it made the "Popular" tab! What is the "Popular" tab you may ask?

I'll tell you. Just chill. 

At the top of the page you can click "Popular" and it shows you all the trending pins. I was scrolling through and SAW MY NAME. Seriously. I've peaked. There's nothing left to achieve. Done. ;-)

I know. I'm a dork. But I felt popular for a second. I took a screen shot. You have to document these monumentally momentous moments (monumentally momentous moments???) in life. 

So what have you lot done lately? Passed the Bar? Run a marathon? Given birth? Saved lives? Jumped buildings in a single bound? You've got nothing on me ;-)

I'm so glad the holidays are over...I love Christmas, it's a beautiful holiday, I love being with my family and celebrating the birth of Christ...but it's also a really hard time of year.

I get really depressed around the holidays. It gets worse  every year. I get very lonely and tend to focus on everything that is missing in my life.

I know. I shouldn't. But I do anyway. I think it will get better once I'm married and start having kids.

But for now, I get very nostalgic for Christmases when I was young, and it's rough.

I'm also addicted to Pinterest. How are these things related? Let me tell you.

I keep finding images and sayings that help me. I never thought Pinterest would inspire me this much.

Here are a few of my recent favorites.
Give up the thought that you have to be perfect, look the part and have no weakness before you give your heart and put your self out there.

 And slightly unrelated...but awesome:

Resolution: actually blog...

I'm officially a really bad blogger. The  holidays were crazy. The end. 

A few glimpses into my oddness:

Bear has finally warmed up to my dad. I know. I never would've believed it either. But look, I took a picture. Christmas miracle. 

Tres Leches cake from Tarahuma (the best Mexican restaurant on the planet. Just saying) Isn't it pretty?!

Creepy clown juice marketing. I was walking down the aisle and it was watching me.

Gorgeous sunset. No snow yet (not good), but amazing clouds and sunsets. But really. We need snow. Can anyone say drought coming???

Big project at work. We have clients coming in and I wanted to spruce up the joint. It's very blah.

All of the walls were this color:

Not anymore!!!
I've spent the past two days painting and such and I really like how it turned out. My boss is still getting used to it, but I think that really (really) deep down inside he loves it :-)

So what have you all been up too?

This is what I need for Utah! I have been looking for something like this forever...and of course it's completely out of stock EVERYWHERE. If you any of see one...please let me know!


Could I live here please?

Women love dragons??

I mean, I actually do like dragons...but that's besides the point!

I keep getting this same ad on Facebook and it really bugs me for some reason.
