Moving On

Trent and I broke up. In the end it was me that ended it and while it was a difficult decision it was the right one for my family group. Now moving on....

I am having a little girl crush on a new Artist that I've just recently discovered her name is Ellie Goulding. She has a different sound to her but I still really dig it. Also loving Mumford & Sons, and Foster the People. All Great bands/artist. Go check them out.

Sorry this one is so short. Its late and I am tired.

My Sons, God bless them!

They are cute, cuddly, and most importantly pills. I love playing with them, reading with them, cooking with them (not cooking them ;P ) I just all around love spending time with them and getting to see their personalities blossom into the individuals that they will some day become. It just intrigues me to no end to watch them solve the same problem in their own ways.

A lot of time as passed since I have last posted on this blog. A new thing in mine and my sons life is that I am now engaged to a wonderful man that the boys are already calling "Daddy Trent", if you couldn't have guessed his name is Trent. He has a son of his own though was never married to the mother of his son. His name is Bryden and he is 5 years old.

The boys love to play with Bryden and truth be told, Trent too (which makes my heart soar). Trent (and Bryden) are a huge blessing in my life as I know that I (and the boys) are in theirs as well. It's nice that there is an age difference between all of the boys but that the difference isn't so overwhelming that they can't all play together nicely, most of the time anyways.

While my title doesn't really have anything directly to do with the post I felt that it was the most fitting, well it was in my mind. My sons are growing up so quickly it takes my breath away and I often need to step back and take it all in that they're going to be going to school soon and that they won't "need" me in the ways that they needed me before. It hurts but it's also the most amazing thing to witness and I am so lucky to be a part of it.

I Love my sons.

Good Morning Mama

Curse the cuteness of my two sons.

All I wanted to do is roll over in bed and ignore them so that I can get a few more minutes of sleep, but no they have to be adorable little snots.

Logan was up bright and early at 6:35 and quietly ran out into the front room to cuddle with Grandma in our big brown lazy boy and watch the Disney Channel. Okay I can still sleep for a bit, sweet! Nope, 6:40 over the baby monitor I hear Liam in his little morning voice "Mama?" and with an effort I roll out of bed to go greet the morning with the cute little buggers that are my sons. :)

Not much on the agenda to do today as I have today off of work which is odd, normally I work Friday and have Saturday off; as most of the deliveries come Monday-Friday, but I'm not going to complain. My plan for the day is make some brownies < for the family and someone special ;) >, do the laundry, throw something into the crock pot for dinner tonight (recipe for Brownies will follow at end of post), and maybe play some video games? But who knows :)

I suppose that it is all for now. Oh I started another blog called "Blogging Zombies?!" read it if you get the chance and let me know what you think.

I'm horrible at this :)

Yeah I know, I complete suck at updating my blog. In fact its been just over a year since I've even really thought about it. Depressing!

Turning over a new leaf though I'm going to try and be really a lot better about updating this, as it is another means for family to keep up on the latest involving my little family unit :)

Logan has turned 4, amazing how quickly the time flies and man did it fly by! Such a smart amazing boy that I have been blessed with though it's not all butterflies and rainbows all the time, he's a little spitfire when he wants to be but he's a loving soul through and through. It's a blessing because some days I want to lock him and his attitude in their room.

Started a new job back in the end of Feburary at a local garden nursery center called "Sun River Gardens", I finally snapped at "Harmons" and almost went 'postal' on everybody ;) but I am much happier at my new job and my new 'title' of Inventory & Receiving Agent. Oh it sounds so cool, don't hate ;)

Anyways long story short, I'm still as much of a dork as ever and have come back to make people suffer my dorky awesomeness.

You have been warned :)

p.s I hate my mouse it drives me bonkers

LOLO'S 3!!!

Wow, I can't believe 3 years have past since I gave birth to my oldest little angel. While his birthday was on April 17 I have been a bit busy and was not able to post. :)

Life is still going on amazing well. Work has been busy, and I am actually starting work in the Bakery Department tomorrow and will be work there 0-16 hours as well as the Front End 16-31 hours. It makes me happy and extremely excited to work in the bakery. It's something that I have wanted to do for quite awhile now, and it's a good thing that I am starting it. More money for me!

The boys are healthy and happy, the daycare we found is simply amazing and the boys are making so many friends! :)

Well it's late and I am extremely tired...will post again soon :) Peace out home fries! LOL

Late Update :)

It's been quite awhile since I have posted but life will get in the way and I am not able to post everyday, lol.

As I am typing Liam is lying down for a nap and Logan is watching Jungle Junction. Life is going. The boys are ever growing. And with the weather becoming warmer and warmer by the day (YAY!) more cuts, bruises, dings and dents are popping up on the boys and myself as we are usually outside for a few hours everyday (weather permitting). Today is a bit windy and the clouds are low enough that the mountains are covered so today probably will be a mostly inside day.

Thursday night was the last day of a class that I was taking called "Floortime" that helped parents interact with their children "better", more on the child's level, hence the name, and its was amazing the difference I have noticed since I started the 4 lessons long class, to now. Logan is better about listening to me and I to him. He interacts better with other children since I am better about communicating in a way that he understands. And is more gentle with Sara (our dog) and with Liam as well.

Also I am happy to say that after 2 years of working at my job and asking them (nearly every time I was at work) to increase my hours, they finally have. I was at 0-16 hours a week and have now been bumped up to 16-31 hours a week, so both of the boys will be starting daycare next week. And we have found a wonderful family that runs a daycare out of home and they are so amazing! I am so lucky to have found them as quickly as I did. :)

Still no real dating, have been hanging out with a few guys in a large group with my friends and have been talking to one guy quite a bit lately, and enjoy his company. He makes me smile alot and doesn't judge me for the fact that I have tattoos (got a new one on my right shoulder blade) and that is against our religion (both of us are LDS though not as active).

I will try to be better and update sooner then I have this last time. So until then my friends, my love to you all. :)

A Herion?

I have a strange and intense passion for photography, I love taking picture, and viewing others pieces of work. Up until about a week before christmas I wasn't really able to take as good as pictures as I would have liked because I only had a weak Digital camera, so for my present this year my mother bought me a DSL Nikon D5000 (so pretty!) and I have been able to start back up into the old passion of mine.

I have been a little out of practice but this past Sunday when Mike took the boys all day (the first time since he's moved back to Utah) I took the day to basically drive all over Utah county and take pictures (1/2 a tank of gas gone :'( ...) of whatever my little trigger finger felt like.... and within the period of 5 hours I filled up a 2GB SD card....near 750 pictures. So going though all of them has been a tad bit of a hassel, but I was able to get at least one of the 3 massive picture(s) edited and it looks so cool... though it won't show up as well as I would like on this blog I will still load it....

Another one has inspired me to do a collection of photos that I have decided to call the "WALL-E Collection" basically just artistic pictures of pieces of trash yeah weird i know but the picture that i took that inspired me to do that turned out so well... i know that sounds cocky but just look for your self...
