Santa arrived early

Andrew and I had an amazing Christmas, I hope that everyone did as well. Even though we celebrated a few days before, everything was perfect

We had cookies out for santa


And the tree with all the presents


Andrew woke up at 6am, we decided to wait till 7 (or I did haha)

We then headed downstairs, to wait on my parents to arrive around 8 when we opened gifts, ate breakfast, and had a low key morning

My all time favorite:


My new camera 🙂

Question for you:

What was your favorite gift to give or to receive this year?

Canon, I love you

Today was one of those days. not feeling well. sleeping a ton. not eating hardly at all. I even fell coming out of Sam’s carrying groceries (I have the scraped knee to prove it haha)

And then I come home to this……


Several months ago my camera (that I was given to for christmas) broke. The lens wouldn’t open and the zoom was acting up.

I called the GREAT AMAZING people at Canon. And they said, send it on in!!! So I did. And it came back already!!!

I was so incredibly excited

Then I read the first part of this later “since repairs were not performed on the camera”…..


Then I read farther…They are sending me a new refurbished one!!! And all new parts (CD, hook ups, battery, and charger)

I guess my old one was no good.

Of course, andrew and I celebrated with a photo shoot haha

Question for you:

What type of camera do you use?

-this is a canon Powershot ELPH 100HS

long lost michigan pictures

remember how I lost my camera in michigan, was sad about it, and then found it the same day my parents bought me a new one?? haha.

Well here are a few of those pictures. We went to Michigan in August 2011. It was awesome

One of my favorite nights, was having mexican. It was the kids night to cook.

And there was plenty of Coronas to go around

We also got Andrew to dress up! Isn’t he cute!

The next day, My dad and I also took Andrew on a bike ride.

Andrew MIGHT have stolen my camera during the ride

I might need to put this one of the frig so I stay away from the food (I have a booty. Its all good haha)

We also had dinner out w/ the family.

This is Andrew with his godmother Jill ( also my cousin and friend since I was born. she is five months older)

They were trying to be a two headed monster. pretty good right?!?! haha

well I think that wraps up michigan now haha. Im so glad I have my camera back!

Question for you:

Do you like mexican? Whats your favorite Mexican food?

A christmas miracle!!

I have SOOO much to update everyone on for Christmas Eve and Christmas. Andrew and I are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends.  I hope everyone had an amazing holiday!


I want to do the holiday justice, so it will have to wait till tomorrow, but I will let you in on ONE of the best things to happen 🙂



On Christmas Eve, I received my present from Andrew and it was a brand new camera! I was so excited! you guys know Ive needed one since August when I lost it in Michigan 😦 . But that camera had some pictures and videos that were never uploaded on my computer. I was completely bummed for months!!! I even called stores, restaurants, and City Hall in the town asking if anyone had found it. Ive been stealing borrowing my moms since then.

Around noon on Christmas Day, we opened gifts from my parents and then headed home for a nap before going to grandmas house. Andrew and I arrived at my grandparents around 5pm. First, my mom hurries over to me, hands me a pink 31 bag and tells me to go open it in front of everyone. Um what? Why would I go open something in front of everyone when they aren’t openning anything…….but I went with it.

And this is what I say. “Um. Is this my camera Andrew gave me last night” (I was thinking I had left it at my parents, and they were trying to say – LOOK. you already lost it haha)


THIS is the camera I lost in MICHIGAN!!!!!! IN AUGUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently earlier in the day, my mom was getting a bag out of her closet, and it fell out on the floor!  all she kept saying was “OH MY GOD. You are NOT going to believe this!!!!!!!”

Well she put some tissue paper in a 31 bag and gave it to me! I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

I have been smiling ALL NIGHT! I can’t wait to charge the battery and get the pictures on my computer. (Im still not sure what I will do with the camera I got last night.) But really!!! talk about a strange event happening on Christmas!

I hope you all had an amazing day and I will catch up all up soon!

Stolen camera & recipe

Yesterday was a pretty good day. New pizza recipe!

apple feta pizza

Last night  I went out with Lydia, a friend that I work with in the NICU. I have been talking a lot about my feelings of my ex, and she told me WE NEED TO GO OUT! We had a blast!

This morning I woke up CRAVING hash browns. Well I didnt have potatos, but I did have sweet potatoes!! So I sliced them, added olive oil, salt, and cinnamon.  With a side of  eggs

Lunch was left over pizza. Then my snack was my good o’ friend- PB and banana on bread

Good o' friend

I made a new recipe by Janetha

it was SO good. Even my son ate it (who is a really picky eater ) My mom wouldnt eat it though.

While cooking my camera got stolen!!!

can you all see the BIG booty?

Have you figured it out yet? haha

 So last night, I plugged in my phone right next to my water on my night stand. Wellllll the condensation on the cup got on the table. Well my phone was sitting in water this morning, and wont turn on!

so sad…Im having to use my OLD phone.

No exercise today except playing soccer with my son twice. This is him today playing goalie for his indoor team- They won!~

Im always so nervous when he play goalie haha

Question for you:
