Green Goodness!

So I almost threw up in my mouth when I saw my boss drinking something that looked like a mix between Pea soup and Bile (no exaggeration) 
I think I literally gagged when he asked if I wanted to try it. The curiosity took over and I asked him what was in it. It pretty much is the grown up version of mixing all of the sodas from the fountain drink dispenser-except with fruit and veggies.
I then proceeded with the sniff test. Ya know when you smell the food to see if it is edible.... surprisingly it just smelled like fruit. 
Next Step: risking my lunch and tasting it! I know it sounds dramatic but if you see the drink you will understand. I can't think of another drink that I have had that is GREEN!
Much to my surprise it tasted just like a V8 splash except no filler crap!
And since this Green Goodness has spinach, broccoli, algae, etc I figured it is the perfect way to get some veggies in my little man who won't even touch a green vegetable! 
He absolutely loves it!
 I just haven't let him see the color of the drink :o)

Check out the ingredients of the Green Goodness! Doesn't get better than that! So nutritious!

April 6, 2012

This is my absolute favorite run and I actually look forward to running it every year! 
It isn't the easiest run considering a mile of it is up a ginormous bridge but there is such a sense of accomplishment when you cross the finish line! Not to mention finishing with THOUSANDS of people!

There are officially 170 days until the Cooper so my goal is to run 170 miles within the 170 countdown!

2 down.....168 to go!!!

Its that time....

Today is the day! Logan is transitioning from his crib to a big boy bed. 
Logan helping Drew take the crib apart


His big boy room rearranged

Big Boy Bed!

However this bed is temporary until he gets his REAL big boy bed that his Papa is building for Christmas!

Logan's Reaction to Big Boy Bed transition: EXCITED
First Nap in big boy bed: SUCCESS!

Never a dull moment .....

..... when you have a video monitor and you can spy on your kid!!!

We were woken up by Logan this morning yelling "Help me, Help me! Im trapped!"
(Glad the CRIB is serving its purpose)
However! The day is approaching we have been putting off! He proceeded to kick his leg over the rail as if attempting to climb out. I personally think he was acting out his own Diego Episode. He then grabbed the diaper stacker with both hands and started yelling "PULL PULL PULL" 
I finally went in and got him...
(To be continued....)

5 hours later @ naptime!
*        *          *

After our typical naptime routine I read Logan two books and tucked him in. He laid down and told me Goodnight.

Too easy right??? Yep. 
15 minutes later (after silence from his room) I casually checked the video monitor.....
I expected to see my usual passed out baby....NOPE!

I hit the video button and what do I see???
My Neked baby jumping up and down singing "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
(Side note: he was put to bed in a diaper and shorts)

He then proceeds to perform the Downward Dog Yoga pose at the Camera

"I saw on Pinterest....."

If you ask my husband most of my sentences lately start with....
"I saw on Pinterest....."

This is how this project started!

If you also ask my husband i'm notorious for starting projects and not finishing them!

But this time I actually took the time...ordered the pictures....picked them up...and completed the project all in the same night! HUGE success people!

First I found this Wall Decor on Clearance at Hobby Lobby for $20. It is all made out of wood so I knew it would be perfect for my Mod Podge Picture Project!

I ordered 3 8x10 prints of pictures we took at the beach this summer and cut them down to size to fit the squares.

Because the picture didn't fit exactly because the pictures weren't wide enough I painted the edges white to fade the picture into the background of the overexposed background. White worked perfectly! It was even more perfect because I already had the acrylic paint :o)
I Mod Podged the wood and the back of the picture and let it dry....

Then I Mod Podged over the top :o/ (The blogger said at this point you will think you ruined your picture---and I'd be lying if I said I didn't, even with the warning)

But it dries clear giving it the perfect touch! 

Now the hardest part is deciding where to hang this 14x40ish masterpiece!

PS this project was EASY!! and only cost $30 total!!!

Our Notebook

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words  Memories!

I continue to work diligently on our family "YEARBOOK"
I promised myself since I annoy my family with thousands (literally) of pictures have thousands of pictures on my memory cards that will probably just sit there and collect dust that each year I will make a photobook. My plan is to have a shelf full of our family "yearbooks"
Who inspired me to do this? Who else?? LOGAN!
Of course we have our wedding photobook and then I also created a maternity/hospital book. Our first actual yearbook started in April when Logan was born. So I continued from there and this current book will be April 2011- April 2012.
My mom always tells me that if I take all these pictures of Logan I'll have to do the same for the other children...This doesn't pose as a problem to me- Im actually concerned I may have to quit my day job to be able to have time to take and edit all the pics I will want to take when there are more kids :)
What I am concerned about is how am I going to explain to the younger siblings that our Yearbooks are based off of Logan's Birthday :o/ and or how do I change this without creating a gap or overlay???
Decisions Decisions....oh well we have time :o)

Here's a sneak peak!
