double mirror

i found this gem on ksl classifieds for 30 bucks.
one side was broken and the other wasnt
so i split it in half and
made a magnet chalkboard for the living room
then put the other mirror in my bedroom.
im thinking of painting the one
in the living room white.
we will see...

to make stuff like this.

im sorry but the heart butts

so sad and sick.

darby is probably the HARDEST kid
to get to take medicine.
ive tried everything and it doesnt work.
hopefully the shot the doctor gave her will kick in soon.
but she has been loving this vicks baby rub.
she sticks her chin out she wants it :(
and its been one of the only comforting thing for her
to have me message it on her neck and belly and back.

sick kids are the worst.
and probably this post is too...

and this is why i have crossed over to the dark side
and got a gym membership.

i love you, mom, more than i love...

mothers day is over.
not a fan.
valentines doesnt phase me.
but for some reason i have a hard time with mothers day.
especially today.
maybe i think about all the ways i can be a better mom.
maybe i was feeling a bit lonely.
maybe i was really tired.
maybe it was combo of all of the above.
i am soooooooo grateful for my babies
they are everything to me.
i am so grateful for my friends who were so sweet to me today too.
my neighbor milly brought me flowers.
my good friend kim brought me a cute present.
my other good friend megan tickled my back
during our relief society lesson
{a mothers day miracle i tell you!!}
and she brought me a bunch of cupcakes from her bakery
and last but not least
cmans mothers day book he made at school.
he has been so excited to give it to me all weekend.

{totally looks like you megan}

and i HAVE to give a shout out
to my mom.
i stole this pic from you becky
hope you dont mind :)
my mom is so amazing.
we were so blessed in 2009 that doctors found 2 brain aneurysms.
that is very rare to find them BEFORE something happens.
i need her, i love her, and im so very grateful
she is going to be around a lot longer
and go surfing with my sister in hawaii
{how rad is that??}
thank you for everything you have done for me.
especially during the last year and a half.
i couldnt have done and accomplished
the things i have without your support.
and i especially love that you talk to all of us
about genealogy and tell us about people as if we
know what the heck you are talking about.
dont stop though.
its to funny and we all love it :)

happy mothers day all you moms out there.
you are all truly amazing!

there is a bird in my camera

during a photoshoot i was
trying to get this cute little 2 year old
to look at me.
so i said "look and see if theres a bird in camera!!"
it rocked her little world.
so that was a fun little trick i figured out.

okay so ive been doing my photo a day still
but i have to be honest i missed a couple days.
what do i do fill in the blanks and keep going?
its soooo fun i love it
but id feel like a liar if i didnt say something :)
