we are all enlisted

I am in desperate need of your help. Well, actually my friend needs your opinion and she has enlisted me to enlist you, etc, etc. I posted previously about my awesome friend and her designs. Her business is really taking off. So much so that they have created a website AND she is going to be on the Martha Stewart show. Yes indeedy. Ash will be rubbing elbows with Martha Stewart. Did I mention I've known Ash since she was 3? (I'm already starting with the cool-by-assocation bit). Anywho. Go to their new website and let us know what you think. Leave a comment in my comment section. I will copy all your feedback and send it to her in an email. The setup right now is like a blog. She is not quite sure she wants it that way. Therefore the need for your feedback. AND if you could do it ASAP, that would be most graciously appreciated. :)

new fave mag

I'm sure I'm behind the times but this is my new favorite magazine. I really don't have a lot of time to sit down and read a magazine. Well, I really don't have time to sit down. So when I do get a chance, I love to flip through this. It has awesome ideas, products, recipes, etc. I also love the clean lines of the photography and the set-up.

duck pond

We had fun spending time at the duck pond the other day. Unfortunately, the ducks were more interested in mounting each other rather than eat. Sorry to say it but there it is. It's a part of life people! Too bad 2 year-olds don't understand that. Mason and his friend Avi couldn't figure out why in the world the ducks would rather "play" than eat. I am not looking forward to that talk.

i love dan...

...because he always unloads the groceries for me and puts everything away. I especially love this because this is the part I hate most about grocery shopping. I don't even have to say a word. Dan will automatically get everything out of the car for me and put it away. So, so awesome.

check your bits and bobs

Yes! Yes! Yes! It has arrived. Adapt and survive. ("Stop rhyming. I mean it!")
This is getting fun. Didn't know the company is based in Wellington, New Zealand.

Cool packaging. Love the logo.

So impressed with the packaging. It even comes with a game.

So compact.

Love this. It took me about an hour to put the whole thing together. The instructions are very well written (no 'lost in translation' instructions) and it wasn't too bad to put together. Naomi wasn't too excited at first to be in the stroller. Once we were moving though she loved it. Here is my new exercise program and I couldn't be happier.

i am legend

Holy creepers batman! This has to be the scariest movie I have seen in a while. Anyone else seen this? When we saw it in the theater, we actually didn't know what to expect. I definitely didn't expect to cover my eyes and ears for most of the movie. Even Dan was on the edge of his seat. Will Smith is awesome and can pretty much do anything. This is a must-see for sure.

favorite cardigan

This cardigan from the GAP has to be my favorite purchase so far this year. It is very lightweight, comfy and so super cute. Besides, a black cardigan is a must in everyone's closet.

Tuesday, March 11, 2008


As of late Naomi is getting really bored with the toys we currently have. Constantly we are trying to change it up a bit but overall, she is so active and needing more and more stimulation. Since we are lucky enough to have numerous gift cards (thank you Dan!) I was able to buy this today for her. I'm really excited and cannot wait for it to arrive. Mason was definitely more mellow and content with what we had to offer. So this is a new avenue for us. She is keeping us on our toes and always has a smile to make our day.


Cheers to my parents who are visiting my sister in England. So, so envious of their trip. Of course, I wish I could be there as well. My day will come but until then, I love looking at their pictures. Especially this one of them in front of the most famous clock in the world. One of Mason's first words was clock. As you might have guessed it, he loved this picture of "gramma" and "papa". Hope you are having fun.


Congrats to Ash for following your dream and having it explode! Since I made my previous post about how seriously cool she is for creating these blocks and other baby items, her business has sonic-boomed. She now has her own web address for her killer creations AND has many requests from businesses to carry her stuff. Love it. I'm sure there will be more to come.

happy birthday jacks

Happy birthday to my friend Jackie! She is such a fun, outgoing and witty person. She was always on-call for any type of fun and would create fun when there was none to be found. She will always be the best baby spice ever. Thanks, Jacks, for being such a killer friend! I hope you have a great birthday.

the coolest

I seriously have the coolest friends around. Here is my friend Brittany (whom I've known since I was 3) featured in the local paper. She is the bomb.

Here is my other friend Ashley (whom I've also known since I was 3) using her genius creative skills and turning them into this:

And also this:

All would make super cute baby shower gifts. You can find them here. So, so cute. I want one of everything! I also love her new take on these wooden blocks. Don't you think I have the coolest friends??

six months

Naomi hit her six month mark and we are so proud of her! She has made it halfway through the first year of her little life. She is also starting to sit up on her own. She is still a bit wobbly but could hold herself up while I took these pics.

Here she is after a long day of celebration. I can imagine the struggle that took place before her eyes finally closed, "This My eyes...are...heavy. I...can'

strolling along

Finally, March is here! And, because I am so anxious to be out-of-doors again, have ordered this killer stroller by Phil and Ted's. I did my research and there was not a single bad review on this stroller. I also had a strong recommendation from my sister who also owns one and loves it. Cannot wait for it to arrive and for all the snow to melt away.
