My Mans Investment property!

My brother and My Man bought an investment property at the end of October of last year and stated working in it first thing in November. So they took a dumpy old house that smelled really bad and look like no one cleaned or up kept for a long time and turned into this really cute old fashioned home in 2 1/2 months. I was there a lot just to spend time with him because he was a little obsessed, even though he wouldn't admit he was. There were a few weeks there were I think I saw him a total of 5 hours all week between this house and his real It was not very funny to me at the time but it has been fun to help out and see the changes that make this house so pretty now. The biggest stress in doing this that the house will stay on the market forever and eat up all the money (and then some) that you would make on it....but it was only on the market for 3 weeks and we already have signed papers for an offer. I was tempted to move into it. It has sooo much cute character I fell in love with it. Too much house for us right now it has 4300 sq feet! Take a look at his and my brother hard work!

A girl after my own ways!

Me when I was totally too cute (don't worry this phase doesn't last long!). I'm with my totally awesome papa that I guess went through a Josey Whales fad. I love how he always been so fashionable. When he was young he was the first one in his school to have Bell He begged his mom to sew them from his pants they were so big you couldn't even see his shoes.

This is were the pictures of me that are 'cute' stop for a while....after this it gets pretty scary until I hit high school.

I was little girl I use to dress in layers...but not in the 'cool' way. I use to wear purple polka dot shirt with a red striped undershirt, a white lacy cowboy skirt, black shiny spandex Capri pants, tan leggings, socks and black dress shoes. Yes, I thought I was so cool By the way, Yes, I am holding a blanket in this picture ...who knows why, I was a little eccentric.

So all these pictures are because of the other night Mj came out in this outfit! I just had to laugh until I cried. It was very random. But very creative....

Flower Power ya'll!

mmmm....count the layers of shirts! I counted 4

Mj with her Riley side cousins

I know she will be very artistic when she gets older. I see her 'outside of the box' way of thinking even at this young of age. I love it! (Thanks Jess for the Pictures!)

Poetry of Shel Silverstein

I have always loved this poet. He spoke to my crazy mind when I was little I am very excited to share his books with Mj some day.

'I cannot go to school today, '
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
'I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I'm going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I've counted sixteen chicken pox
And there's one more-that's seventeen,
And don't you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut-my eyes are blue-
It might be instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I'm sure that my left leg is broke-
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button's caving in,
My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained,
My 'pendix pains each time it rains.
My nose is cold, my toes are numb.
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There is a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is-what?
What's that? What's that you say?
You say today is...Saturday?
G'bye, I'm going out to play!

Anyone wanted to use this to get out of work....Me!

Our Winterland

Mj is learning how to ride and is loving every minute of it. She knows most of the horses names and the one she is kissing is 'Princess' a sweet Welsh Pony mix that Jamiebug use to ride and resonantly gave her to my mother so the grand kids could learn to ride.

Christmas in Boise. We spent one week there you'd think we'd have more pictures. Above is one of Mj's cousins and below is the very first snowman Mj helped make. We need to get more winter clothes for her. We do live in Idaho.

Darren and I finally went on a date just the two of us when we got home from the holiday's.

I love Garica's in Idaho Falls. Their bean dip is to die for. I love limes in every thing, water, chicken, tacos, Shrimp......

Been sick since Jan 2nd. This picture pretty much explains how I see the world. Later, 1 week later, I would find out my sickness turn into an pretty much sucks!

Mj is a Sunbeam now. I can not believe she not in Nursery anymore I just want to cry. She even sings the song. I have a really cute video of this but it too large. I'll check facebook it may upload better there.
