this little piggy went weeeeeeeeeeee!

running the 10k Dirty Dash
may have been one of the funnest
things ive ever done.
for reals!
it was so fun having bryton and christian there
watching and taking pictures.
and the race was totally worth my
black and blue 5 inch bruise on my shin.
and losing a contact when em hit me in the face with mud.

here we are all squeaky clean...

and we are all muddy...

this was just crossing the finish line.

we were laughing how we were kinda like
shrek, fiona and donkey
{i was donkey}

rob and anna banana

eating muddy grapes...
super yummy.

kevin and emily

me and the boys


darby can jump with the big boys.
take christian out.
loves motocycle rides.
wearing christians big boy undies.
playing with dirt and rocks.
and yet she also loves
the color pink.
and jessie {thats what she wants to be for halloween}
her princess big girl panties.
and getting her hair and nails done by kylie.
she is a perfect mix to me :)

i love getting pictures from my babysitter
on my phone.
it makes me miss the crap out of darby.
but it also makes me super happy
that she is with an awesome family during the day.

not so wicked

B is here!
christian and darby have been so excited
to have their big brother here.
B reminded me that im still his stepmom
even though im not married to his father anymore.
anywho. we have lots of fun things planned this weekend.

and yes darby is barefooted.
didnt realize that she didnt have her flip flops on
until we were half way to the parking lot.
and i forgot and he had baggage to pick up
on the way back from getting flip flops
and half way to the parking lot.
its been a long day...
and delta sucks...

i miss...

today i miss being a stay at home mom.
i miss everything about it
the good AND the bad.
dont get me wrong im grateful
that i have a job and the ability to provide
for my 2 kiddos.
today i want to clean my home,
take darby out and play
and have cookies waiting for christian when
he gets home from school
and do homework together.
i know thats not the reality of a stay at home mom
but thats what i want today...

{i can never blog without pictures}

book club party night

book club is tonight!
cant wait. its going to be so fun.
i think half the fun of a party is decorating for it.
am i right or am i right ladies?
if you havent read the book
and would like to join
come tonight to eat, chit chat and find out
what the next book will be.

i found this tutorial
while browsing for ideas for decorations.
what a great way to use those
anthro magazines you hate to love
and cant throw away.
i even went to the thrift store
bought an old book
and did the same technique.
love it!
