my new rug

This my new rug, I got the other day. I was in quite the quandry when I went to go pick a new one. I bought a blue and brown one first and some new pillows and came home and set it all up and ....... I didn't like it. As mom says , it didn't work with my spirit. It wasn't warm enough. So I had to go back and get this one,and I love it. It is warm and comfortable and it fits with my house. It makes me happy when I see it. When I get up in the middle of the night to get Presley , it makes me smile even then. I guess that means I picked the right one.

This is what I found the other day on the side of the rode. I thought it had potential so I threw it in my car and then painted it it up and vuala, a new thing for me. I thought about taking a picture of and putting on the old owners home and showing him what he could of had, but I guess I'll just be happy that I have it.
Since this picture I have added some new hardware . I temporarily placed these things on till, I get more nic nacs. But you get the point. I have caught the bug, of finding a good deal or finding it free, I will post about my garage sell purchases soon. Thanks Linds for being contagious.

All Aboard

A couple of weeks ago with the play group we took an Amtrak ride to Wasco. The kids loved it, especially Rocco.I guess it's in his blood. In th picture above he is doing choo choo.

The play Group
I asked Mike if he could get some stuff for the kids, so he met us when we got off the train. He gave the kids all sorts of goodies. I told Rocco, Daddy was giving him presents, so the next morning he wanted to play with his presents. He loved it.
Thanks Mike for taking the time to put a smile on the kids face. I love you and I am so thankful for the hard work you do everyday.

Bakersfield friends

I would like to give a shout out to all my Bakersfield friends. My birthday was on Tuesday and Teasha had invited me over for lunch, we were asked to bring some kind of finger foods and just let the kids play. I was talking to my mom on the way there and she asked of we were having lunch for my birthday, I told her no, they don't know it's my birthday, that's notsomething i go around telling everyone.
Well to my surprise, I walked into Clarissa's backyard and there was a sign and all the girls shouting Happy Birthday. I was shocked and so honored that they would go to the effort to make me feel so special.From the time that I was in 2nd ward they hadn't removed my name from the roll and my birthday was on there. Teasha was snicky and congured up this surprise.
So from the bottom of my heart I thank you guys for being so thoughtful and being my friends. You are one of a kind and I am so blessed to have met such a nice group of women.

I was doing my morph and used 2 different pictures, to see who I would like to act like on different days. A vavvoom model or a music artist,hmmm........ maybe one by day ,one by night

my kids could be twins

These are the kids at about the same age and in the same pose, I think they look so similar, if you put a bow on Rocs head he would be Presley and vice versa. I love them to pieces and they are my happiness.

Who says men don't get pregnant along with us women

I found this picture of when I was pregnant with Rocco. It's kind of funny so I thought you all might get a kick out of it.Men get pregnant right along with us, I guess it is that sympathy weight.

In February we went to Utah to the Cabin to enjoy some time in the snow and go snowmobiling. We like the kids to join in the fun so we take them along. I wore Presley in the front carrier and Rocs rode in front of Mike. They love it and usually end up falling asleep. It's fun to ride, but I would never live in the snow,it's pretty but only for a few days.We have had some special times on our family vacations, we have created wonderful memories and they are priceless.

Let me all share my love for this wonderful store! For 2 years I did not have a Target close to me, so I went on my trips when I was in Mesa, which was nice , but didn't fill my need for the weekly or tri-weekly visits. So now that I have one at my disposal I want to share my love.

1. The feeling I get when I am in there, the lighting makes a difference,way better than Walmart

2. The Market Pantry, same quality as name brand minus the price.

3. The dollar section, gota love it.I find things that I don't need but it's cheap why not?

4. The decor is always nice, yes it can still be pricey, but designer looks,not designer prices

5. The food court, chicken strips and a drink for$2.00, and it's good!

6. I think my kids like it, Rocco loves to go and have lunch there, we cant walk out without siting on the swirly chairs.

7. My kids dress cute due to Target

I love Target and I missed it so, and I'm happy we have been reunited

My sweet angels, I love them so much. Rocco is quite the little character.We are in the midst of potty training and things are going good and in a way it's kind of sad because he is getting older, but it brings me such joy to see him communicate and have his own opinions. Presley is a little sweetie, the poor girl is struggling with many ear infections and today we found out that she needs tubes, so hopefully we will get some relief for her soon. They are my life and I am so blessed to be given the chance to be their mother.

At first I thought blogging was a little weird, but I have have changed my mind, once I started seeing everyone elses and how fun they really were I have decided to jump on board and try this out. I am not very computer savy so I am sure I'll have my fair of oops.
