25- From Friday: The boys are so happy about their new roommate! Even though they have been indeterminately kicked for shedding, one for chewing.. oh well, they can just meet in the living room for their love fest!

26-(Saturday) Was a good day!! I'm sad that this is the only picture I took... Sam looking at the birds! Sam & Chuy are always chasing them out of the yard, "stalking" them while they sit on the picnic table and watching them up in the trees! ha!
I did have to work, but got called off my night shift so Chancey and I decided to go swimming at moms! FUN and the water was soo nice (I was afraid it would be freezing!) Then we came home, got changed and went over to Julie's for a BBQ! Love her:)
I have yet to take my picture for today...hmmm & its already 8! I need something exciting to happen! ha

Little Chancer coming home from work! My little brother moved in with us on Tuesday night. He thought since he has graduated he was ready to "move out" from my mom & dads...but obviously not really ready to be on his own-own. So we gave him the extra bedroom & I helped him unpack all his stuff and told him I wouldn't pack his lunch for work like mom used to!! haha
We made tacos together on Tuesday and last night we got home at the same time and started cleaning the kitchen and bathroom...Mom would be so proud! And its nice for me to not have to be alone all the time while Eric's at work!

And a landlord update: FINALLY got a hold of him & Eric said he had been moving all week so he didn't really have a phone...hmmm. Well we told him about the leak on the roof and his suggestion was that Eric climb up on the roof and nail a tarp down until he can come look at it. OMG-GHETTO. Anyways, after all this I e-mailed him and said I have receipts totaling $185 and I would just less it off our rent when I mailed him. Then he emailed me back and just take off $250 for all the trouble. YES! We decided to go get my dad a gift card to somewhere for the help and hopefully thats the end of our house troubles for now!


23- Had a sweet visitor last night!We went to the nature thing next door for a "photo shoot" but didn't last too long because it was hot and muggy! Isn't she adorable!

Oh Good Grief!

22- I woke up this morning in a panic b/c I looked @ the clock and it was 7:40! And that's what time I have to leave my house by to get to work on time. So I threw on a dress and put my hair in a ponytail, brushed my teeth and ran out the door! Then I get to driving down the road and look at the clock.... it's only 6:50. DUHHHH!! I was a mix between laughing at myself, because I seriously sit up in a panic all the time thinking I'm late and mad because I missed 30 minutes of sleep! But at least I finally had the time to straighten my hair and put on some makeup:)
My new Ebay dress that I showed a few posts ago came in!

(And I know I owe pictures 20 and 21 but I'm at work and they on my laptop at home.)

We had to put Sam up for a minute on Friday night while we all came in because he just HATES new people coming into the house. After they sit down...he's fine then...ugh. And even though he knows my brother, he hasn't seen him in a while so we put him up. And here they are by Saturday afternoon:

haha! little traitors! everytime i came in the room, one of them was on the couch with him! 19

Stop Me!

17- Step away from the mall. Hide the debit card. A monster has risen in me & CANNOT be stopped! Ha! I can't stop buying stuff! I got this shirt at Vanity- I LOVE it and its a cardigan and doesn't close in the front. Especially now since my hair is short-you can see the pretty in the back!
And I got this Old Navy dress on Ebay for $10 with shipping! Love it:)

But now...unless I seriously want to live on Ramen noodles with no cable or electricity- I have got to stop shopping!



They are still intact! This is a world breaking record at our house!! (Also, that's Chuy's "chair" and Sam has his own chair- the leather seat we got at Goodwill- its so funny when we all go to our same seperate seats everynight! Also again: I need a life..!)


Oh my goodness... look at that hair girl!!! haha cute baby:)

Go Diggy!!!

This is my picture from yesterday, I was just too tired to post it when we got home! It was Kap's first softball game of the year! She's in coach pitch this year, no more tball!!! She hit it the first time but got out at second base when another girl hit it right over there!! Then she struck out the second time but that's OKAY!! She did awesome :) Go baby diggy!!

Before the game
Practicing her swing.. I love her ponytail in this one! ha

Eric came with me, which was a fun surprise! Even though I made us get there an hour early because I thought the game started at 5:45! Thanks for not being too mad!


cute baby!

Good game girls! I'm so glad I got to go:)

Me & Diggy

I made a quick trip to Wal-Mart to pick up some shampoo & walked out with a few bags... it always happens! I got both of those CUTE cardigans for $5 each & the pink sweat pants for $3 (I love them so much, I already have them in black and blue!) And I finally got some new sandals since the dogs (CHUY) ate my last pair. Not a bad run!!

Why My Dad is the best

My dad showed up at 9:30 this morning and after much frustration, a trip to Lowe's, talking to a plumbing "specialist" (not), many trips in & out of the rain to turn the water off and on, a new faucet and a bribe of breakfast.... we now HAVE WATER! yay :) My dad is the best & I told him we would make him a bill and deduct it off our rent! haha... what's your rate, 100 an hour?!!?

The children (and me!) also got a fun surprise because this little lady decided to ride along with her PawPaw!!! :)

I walked out of the bedroom & caught Sam begging for belly rubs, haha!

Where My Water Handle Went...

Number 10:Still frustrated. Still have no water. Still can't get a hold of our landlord. Still haven't showered.



Our friend, Jon, played at 21st Amendment last night & a whole bunch of our Red Slobster friends came out to support him!! The bar was packed and he did so good!!! So this is my picture of the day:
& here's some more:

OMG- I love this picture!! Silly!!

End of the night, he had a whole crew up there dancing:)

my best friend, julie!! love!

And BEFORE that I was trying to take a shower to get ready, turned the cold water faucet and it fell COMPLETELY out of the wall!! Water was shooting across the tub hitting the wall so hard that it was just mainlining right onto the floor. I threw on some clothes and ran down the street to my neighbors (embarrasing) & he came and turned the water off at the street. By the time all that happened, the bathroom was flooded and water was running into the extra bedroom. Such a MESS! I haven't got a hold of our landlord yet, but I had to brush my teeth with a bottle of water this morning and come to work with no shower...NOT very happy!

We had a going away party this afternoon at my work, and a co-worker brought this beauty!!!
1.)I did half my piece with someone so I wouldn't eat the whole thing.... BUT 2.) I only did it so that I could get some banana pudding.
Oy Vey.

Picture Day Catch Up (3-7)

Laptop is back in the game, thanks to my sweet boyfriend who went a bought me a new cord! Now for the picture roundup (I hope I don't have to do this again, I like looking @ them seperately!)
Day Seven- It's a Monday, and I love Mondays because thats when Eric is off :) Mostly we just sit around (I spy an Xbox controller in somebody's hand) and hang out- but it's my favorite night of the week and I get to spend it with my 3 favorite people!
Day 6- I have two pictures for this day! Oops. At the lot next door to our house is a nature place- with plants and trails and stuff. I saw this for the first time when I was taking pictures over there, it has a "doorway" from tree branches and when you walk under there is a sign that says "Fairyville." Then there all these little minituare houses and villages- its so precious!

Day 5- Saturday....I had to work all day and when I was getting ready, thought the dogs were being a little too quiet. They've pulled a few Houdini tricks lately and keep getting out of the backyard so I decided to go check on them. LUCKILY, my camera was sitting on the dining room table and I caught them just hanging out on the picnic table!! I love this picture- best friends!!

Day 4- This is one of about 40 pictures I tried to take with Chuy on our walk... and sadly, this is the best one! Ha!

Day 3- My Sam:) He's so photogenic and so sweet... I love those wrinkles by his mouth, I'm imagining they are from smiling so much.

Not Stopping At Two!

Erhem.... I'm NOT stopping at two for those who asked (J!). I have been dutifully carrying around my little camera to and fro, just snapping away! My laptop is currently out of commission & I left my camera on the coffee table so I can't upload at work but tomorrow we will be back in business!

Numero Dos

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I'm on my work computer because I dropped the laptop last night and bent the plug for the charger. :(

And since I'm at work... my picture for Day 2:

My extremely messy desk!! I have been absolutely ALL over the place today! The phone is ringing off the hook & I can't seem to finish one thing before I need to move onto the next... Ah! But underneath all that mess- I have some fun pictures of my family, friends & dogs, Kap's Softball Schedule and some other little cute stuff!

I guess that should motivate me to get back to work & clear all this mess off! 1 hour and 21 minutes until 4:30. Come on clock :)

Day One

The dogs got new toys and instead of ripping through his in .5 seconds, sweet Sam laid down by it and just relaxed. Oh, be still my heart! ha!

In our otherwise very exciting lives... we went to the Walker Park for the first time to walk around. Went down a trail to the little creek... Sam & I had fun walking around in the water but poor ol Chuy wasn't having it. After dodging all the little baseball players and sniffing every tree in the park we all loaded up and went on a ride to see Eric at work then to KFC to get some grilled chicken and green beans. Now we're just waiting for Glee and The Hills to come on so our Tuesday night can be complete! Yes, so exciting.

Project 365

I saw this on my friend Kayla's blog and thought how perfect! I take pictures everyday & since I've been having the WORST writer's block, hopefully this can get me back in the groove of things!

Project 365: How to Take a Photo a Day and See Your Life in a Whole New Way
People will often say that their whole lives flashed before their eyes after they experienced a traumatic event. Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but we think that sounds pretty incredible.

Project 365: How to Create a Daily Photographic History

Why do it?
Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:

•Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)

•Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.

•Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day.

Tips on How to Do It
Here are six tips on how to create your own Project 365:

1.Bring Your Camera Everywhere
Yes, everywhere. Get in the habit. Grocery stores, restaurants, parties, work, and school. Going to a movie theatre? Snap a pic of the flick with your phone–there are photo-ops everywhere. If you have one of those tiny tiny cameras, you have no excuse not to have it in your pocket all the time. And if you don’t? Camera phones are a great substitute.

2.Make Posting Easy
You can install blog software like Movable Type or Wordpress on your own site and create an entry for each photo, but for true ease of use, try a photo sharing site. Flickr will let you post a week’s worth of photos in 2 minutes flat, and fotolog and are geared toward a photo-a-day workflow. Making it fast and easy means you’re much more likely to do it.

3.Vary Your Themes
Try to capture the day’s events in a single photo. Perform photographic experiments. Take a photo of someone new you meet, something you ate for the first time, or something you just learned how to do. Take a photo of something that made you smile. And don’t forget to take a photo of yourself at least once a month so you can remember how you’ve changed, too.

4.Tell a Story
Use your blog entry, or your photo description, to explain what’s going on in each day’s photograph. How good did that dinner taste? What made you want to take a photo of that stranger? It’ll help you remember down the road, and it gives friends following along a better appreciation of why you took the photo you did. You don’t need to write a lot, just enough to add some color.

5.Don’t Stop, No Matter What
This is perhaps the most important tip of all. You will get tired of taking a photo every single day. Some days, you will consider giving up. Don’t. The end result is worth the effort. Remind yourself why you wanted to do it in first place.

There will be times you’ll think there’s nothing interesting left to take a photo of, and times you’ll think you didn’t do anything exciting enough to take a photo of. There’s always a great photo to be made.

Get out of the house and take a walk. Or stay inside and look around. Take a photo of something important to you. Take a photo of the inside of your house so you can see how your taste has changed over the years. Take a photo of anything, just don’t stop.

It helps if you’ve told your friends about the project and asked them to follow along. Their encouragement will keep you going!

6.Post early, post often
Plan on going through and posting your photos at least once a week so you don’t get backlogged and feel overwhelmed. Ideally, post every day or two. Again, spend the time up front to make sure it’s quick and easy to post. It’ll make all the difference.
