It's been way TOO long!

I haven't blogged in like 5 months. Can you believe that??? The past 5 months have been filled with wedding stuff and I haven't had time to do anything but that and be a Mom. I will be posting updated pictures of Jake and what we've been up to. I just wanted to share that Brent and I got married. He finally made an honest woman out of me. Lol

Jake being silly

Jake love to color

Everyday after daycare Brent brings Jake on a walk through the woods by our house. It's his favorite thing to do. 

Daddy filled up the bath tub all the way and turned on the jets.

I'm a cool dude!

Easter Post-A little Late

Work has been so busy that I just don't have time to blog as much as I used to. I am just now getting around to blogging about Easter.

Easter morning Jake woke up early and while I was still sleeping Brent said that he threw up a little. We didn't think much about it because he seemed fine. When I got up we did the Easter basket hunt. Here are some pictures.

Jake looking for the basket. I was saying turn around Jake. 

Found It!!


After Jake found his Easter basket we were doing to get dressed and head out to our family function. Then the throwing up started again. He threw up his breakfast and anything he tried to drink. This was him after throwing up.

I think we changed his clothes and ours about 5 times that day. Oh well. It was a Easter to remember.

My Birthday Dinner

This past Saturday Brent and I got together with our friends for my Birthday Dinner. We went to Rudy's Red Eye Grill in White Bear Lake. It was a fun dinner.

I feel like I have the best group of friends. It has taken me a while to realize who is important in my life and to let go of the people that just don't care. We have all had our share of fights but in the end we will always be there for each other. We are a family and families have their share of drama. The the 20+ years I have known these girls a lot of friends have come and gone. Through it all they still remain the most important people in my life. I love you all.

Jake's 3rd Birthday

Jake turned 3 on February 17th and we decided to bring him to the Eagles Nest indoor playground and then out for pizza at Adagios Pizza Factory. I can't believe that Jake is 3 already. Here are some pictures from the day.

Taylor was the best baby sitter. She hung out with Jake and kept an eye on him the entire time.

New Glasses

Jake broke his glasses a few months ago and I had to suck it up and get him a new pair. Although I wasn't happy about having to spend so much money I knew it was time to get him a big boy pair of glasses. He also had a new prescription. Because Jake doesn't have lens in his eyes he doesn't have the ability to change from seeing far away to up close on his own. So his doctor prescribed bifocals. It's strange that a 3 year old has bifocals but anything to help him see is ok with me.


He is doing so much better with these glasses then his old ones. He no longer pulls them off any chance he gets. Which makes me think that they are really working and the old ones were just not the right fit. I can't wait until he can tell me what he can see. I'm hoping that he doesn't break these ones because Mamma can't afford to fork out the dough for a new pair.

101 Photos To Take 2012

Everyone that follows me knows that I've been MIA for a long time. I'd be surprised if I still have anyone that follows me. Needless to say 2011 was a very tough year for me. It's slowly starting to get better. I found a great idea on pinterest and thought it would be a great way to get me to use my camera again. I love taking pictures but it's been a while. So in 2012 I am going to take 101 photos from a list on a blog called SNAP.

Join in if you would like. The list is hard to read from my page so go to Snap and download a copy for yourself.

Have fun
