so, i haven't been blogging much lately. which isn't a big deal. it's just that i used to blog almost everyday. i don't know what my deal is lately. i have been super busy at work this week, and it seems like something has been going on almost every night that prevents me from being able to get onto the computer. gahh.. is this what it is going to be like when we have kids?
i was also sick this past week, and now sean has caught whatever i have. except it's 3 times as bad. poor guy. he is taking a nap right now in our bedroom. he has been laying down all morning, rubbing vapor rub on his chest to help clear out the mucous in his lungs! i feel so bad. my cold wasn't nearly as bad.
so let's see. what is new? hmm..well i guess maybe this post will just be super random and i will just try to think of everything that i can that i have been meaning to blog about. which i guess is how i usually post except i do that daily... not weekly. we will see how this turns out..
sean's sister amanda is pregnant! she is giving us a sweet new niece at the end of march! we are so excited and it will be the first baby born in either of our families since we have been married. a few weeks ago my friend lee and i threw her a baby shower. i honestly didn't know what i was doing, and if it weren't for lee, it would have not been this adorable! all i really did was mail out the invites that she had already made, and make the waffles. which i ruined at first, and my sister had to take over and teach me. by the way? how come the first batch of waffles/pancakes/whatever never works? am i the only person with that problem?
my sister took some better pictures. lee planned the party.
hmmm. and i made waffles out of bisquick.
ha. maybe someday i will find my true calling. for now?
the couch and candy suits me just fine :)
anyway, we can't wait for this little baby to come!
my friend beth got engaged! i am so excited for her. before she got engaged we went out to dinner at chili's. before we went we met up at the mall. victoria's secret to be exact. she was trying to buy some perfume with her birthday money and i could not help but laugh at what these mannequins were wearing. one of them was wearing this necklace. so beth took it off, put it on, and i dared her to ask the sales rep there if it was for sale and if they had this in a different color, and that she didn't see the price on it. it was pretty awesome.
she didn't end up asking, but she did model it for me. it was so funny. we were going to ask if we could get a different model on the picture..maybe a brunette or something? do you think we should make this style of necklace a new trend? would you wear one?
anyway, i love her and am so excited for her!
i have been to like 6 baby showers and 1 bridal shower in the past 3 weeks. how do ya'll do it? it has been crazy! my cousin tara is getting married in april and my sister maddie took some amazing bridals and engagement pictures. she is getting so good! anyway, tara asked me to make a hair piece for her. i couldn't decide on one, so i made three..haha.
she went with the first one! isn't she gorgeous?
i snapped a few pictures of my sister taking pictures...
and the most exciting news of all?
i got an iphone!
ha..i know. probably not what you were all expecting. meh. oh well.
and as excited as i am about the new phone...
i am proud to say that i unlocked it myself, with the help of lee who had to leave for a movie
during the middle of it. i have no idea how i did it. and it only took 8 hours...but i am pretty happy.
my phone before was awful. i used to have a blackberry, but it gave me lots of issues.
so i bought a cheap phone at t-mobile and it has had even more issues for only being 6 months old
a guy i work with found one for me online and i got a great deal on it.
i am way happy! it is awesome.
here are some pictures i have taken with it...
my good friend lauren told me about this shake it application that you can download and it will turn your pictures into polaroids! you literally shake the phone like a polaroid picture..."hey...yeah!"i love it. thanks lauren!
i got this mug from my sweet friend caroline! i love it... she said she saw it, and thought it would be perfect for me. she is so sweet. it came in handy today, seeing as it is the only mug that we have, and sean had to drink some hot thera-flu.
anyway, this post was pretty random, and not that exciting. i am hoping to get back to blogging regularly, so just consider this a "catch-up" post. i haven't had time to really comment on any blogs either, so i will try to get some of that done! i hope you are all having a lovely weekend..
i am off to take care of my baby!
