so last night was the big night.. phantom of te opera. I just had to write and get the excitement out. t was absolutley fabulous! so much more than I was hoping for. the music (which I love!) hearing it in person was soo exciting. I found myself with goosebumps . and it took everything to not sing along! the costumes were gorgeous! anyway, it was a wonderful night. now Ineed to start saving for when grease comes to town next year!

I've been tagged!

3 joys

* My boys! my husband, by crazy doggies who make me laugh everyday and my son who's chubby cheeks I just can't kiss enough!
* music. I love music. all kinds. riley and I spend a lot of time singing (or trying to) and dancing around like sillies .
* and reading and crocheting. it relaxs me and helps me to unwind.


* dying. I am so afraid of dying before I am ready. I know I have no control over it and that scares me even more.
* losing my family
* and rodents


* starbucks
* food
* shopping (i am trying to be better about it)

surprising facts

* I am anemic
* I suffer from social anxiety
* I could eat dave's mac and cheese for breakfast lunch and dinner!

5 years already?!

So as of today.. david and I have been married for 5 years! it has gone by soo fast and I can't wait to see what adventures are on their way! He is a great husband and I love him more everyday! We spent the day at the zoo! we took riley for the first time and had a great day! I have pictures coming soon. Riley liked the orangutangs (spelling?) best.. just like his mommy. it was great to get to experience it through his eyes. Also.. some other exciting news... riley took his first step yesterday! I swear everyday theres a new word! I love it!

you know your a mom when....

ok.. so last night I found myself giggling to myself. I was cleaning out some purses and everyone I opened had a diaper and a bag of cheerios inside! so I started thinking about the other ways my life has changed now that riley is here.
-my band aids are no longer flesh colored.. but decorated with bright red elmo's!
- measuring spoons are no longer for measuring, but for banging on the kitchen floor!
- gone are the days of top 40 music.. but has been replaced by kids music cd's! (which i love by the way!)
- when I am mopping.. the dog prints are accompanied by smashed carrots, crushed cheerios and berry blue jello!

so I am curious... how are your homes diffrent now that your little ones are here?

heres saying goodbye to babyhood and heading full force into toddlerhood!

just a day at the park

so today the boys and I headed to Raleigh park to check it out as a possible site for riley's birthday party. it was alright... but I think I may choose another one. One a little easier to find and more on the middle for everyone. We did however have a great time. it was a nice day.. not a ton of people. these are the things that I love doing with him. And we FINALLY got a picture of him standing. Riley loved the teeter totter, loves to swing.. and the bubbles that we brought along!
