Yuppers she picked a good one!

I'm a little late writing about this... but it has been my one of my favorite shows this summer. Jillian is such a cute bachelorette, not the perfect tall skinny blonde chic, as she said herself. My favorite two guys made it to the final two and up until the last show I couldn't decide who I would choose for her (not that my opinion matters :)) In the end I thought she made the PERFECT choice, Ed is so cute with her! Every interview I see with them, they seem so in love and HAPPY!
If you have some free time I stumbled across a blog that she wrote after each show, check it out

In the above picture of Jillian she is wearing a cute necklace that can be found HERE. Even better, win one HERE! But hurry, the giveaway ends tonight at midnight!

I lOvE NeW yOrK

Not sure when my obsession with New York City started or why... BUT, it has always been the city I long to live in! Yes, it can be dirty and busy and expensive and not always to kid/stroller friendly, however, I would love to live in this apartment in the BIG city! Shawn's on board, now we just have to sell our house, our rental properties, sell most of our stuff, OH AND GET JOBS.
Alright, well looks like Ohio will most likely be my home for some time to come, but hold your breath NY I'll get there some day!

Happy 31st Birthday!

My hubby (who is much older;)) has a birthday tomorrow. I threw together a little family party for him yesterday where he received this gift from Lillias and me. I am not such a huge fan of his electric guitar, so I thought an acoustic guitar was the perfect gift! He plays by ear, and not so frequently anymore, making this even more amazing! So, without further introduction here is MY/OUR song...

Actually the song is by Built to Spill, "The Weather." It was the song we played for our first song at our wedding. I loved it when I first heard it and every time I hear the song I remember falling for Shawn the Summer of 03.

Here are a few more shots of the event...

The kiddos doing the chicken dance! It was a wild party what can I tell ya!

Decor LOVE

A while back I posted a picture of a room that I was admiring, posted on a blog that has become a daily read for me. Madebygrl creates the LOVE framed posters and sells them in her Etsy store. While I would also love to have the dresser in the picture I found the equally Lovely LOVE poster a little more affordable at $28.00 (after shipping). I want to frame it and put it in my bedroom, now I just need to find the perfect frame and worthy wall space...

We had a wonderful 4th filled with family, friends, fireworks and FOOD! I think I am still full! On a different note...

A couple weeks ago I stood in line at 7 am to get the new iPhone, now this is not like me. Pulling my sleeping child out of bed to go into the rainy weather is not something I love to do... but the reward was SO worth the trouble! If you can fall in love with a piece of technology I have fallen hard. It is the one worldly possession that I would be crushed if I lost it. I call it, IT, because to call it a phone doesn't do it justice. The thing does everything! SO fun!

My favorite Apps so far:

- Facebook
- Weather Channel
- E!
- Map Quest
- Sally's Spa (game)

Any App suggestions??
