happy halloween

this last week we had the pleasure of hosting one of my best friends from college, meghan! she is in a transition period, so she had a few days to pop down from seattle for a visit. this was her first time meeting campbell, and it was love at first sight...they hit it off! these pictures are from the fall festival our church had - we won at the cake walk! woo hoo for free cake! :) ps - if you couldn't tell, cam is a garden gnome

bella tunno

i don't know how or why i haven't heard of bella tunno before now... i'm sure i've seen their pacifier clips before, but i don't buy those, so when i found their solution sack, i was in love!

this is the solution sack. i have the green one. the funny thing is, is that campbell isn't really to the age yet where i can giver her crayons to occupy her. i'm loving the solution sack for other reasons.

1. i don't use a diaper bag for cam now that she really only requires diapers and wipes...and i just keep those in my purse. when i take her to bsf or the church nursery, i do need something however to give them with wipes, diapers, pacifier, etc. i really don't want to have to carry 2 bags, so when i found this i immediately thought of it as the diaper/wipes bag that i can just take out of my purse and hand it to the nursery! all i had to do was put her nursery bag tag that i got here and wa-la!

2. these bags are washable! i can just throw it in the washing machine if i really need to, but the material almost feels like paper so its super light weight and wipes off easily.

3. bella tunno gives a percentage of their profits to charity. i love that!

4. when i'm ready to actually use this as the solution sack it was created to be, all i have to do is put in the bag what came with it: a disposable bib, multi-purpose pad, purell antibacterial wipes, shout stain remover wipe, band-aids, baby wipes, crayons, bic notepad and pen set!

if you have a little one(s), you should go out and get one pronto!

5 years

well, we made it. we are 5 years married as of today. happy anniversary to us. today was a wonderful day! aaron's day started off a bit earlier than mine, as he went to pump iron around 5:30 am. my day, however, started off with this - he made us pancakes!

this is the first time i've ever seen him cook since we've been married!

then i got to look at these

and then feed breakfast to this sweet girl

then cam and i went to the gym and came home for our respective shower and nap and then we had lunch with aaron at iguana lounge! yum! then i went next door for a little treat :)

THEN...we had family fun day at the zoo! this was campbell's second time to the zoo, the first was when aunt mary came to visit. the weather was nice for a day at the zoo - 82ish sure felt a lot warmer while we were walking, but we enjoyed ourselves!

1. it got a little hot so we took off her pants
2. she's wearing my old lacoste shirt from when i was her age! love that!

lastly, aaron and i dropped campbell off with my parents for her weekly overnight and we headed to the ranch for dinner...we ate here the night we got engaged and every anniversary since then. its our favorite steak place!

now we're home and about to watch horrible bosses. today couldn't have been better. i love my husband. i love my girl. i love my life. thank you, Jesus!

10 years

this weekend was my 10 year high school reunion and i can't believe it! i got to help plan it along with a handful of friends/classmates and i thought it would be good, but it was great! so fun! we were all so pleased with how it turned out. seeing friends from high school that i haven't seen in 10 years was really wonderful...hearing about their lives, jobs, children, etc. friendships are such wonderful blessings. we had a tour of our old middle/high school which has changed so much in the last 10 years - deer creek has already jumped two class sizes and they're pushing 3 now...crazy! we also had a family picnic that was laid back and relaxing. the weather was perfect for the picnic today, which was an added bonus. here are some pictures from my fun reunion weekend!

sorry for the picture was a long weekend with lots of picture taking
