let's all go to the zoo.

Friday, August 31, 2012

We got up in the wee dark hours of the morning - 6 A.M.
got ready and headed to Abilene to get baby's mole checked out because where we live obviously sucks and the dermatologist DO NOT take new patients and the surrounding areas make you wait MONTHS to be seen. Come to find out he's A okay and we got a picture to keep track and we have another appointment in December.

Then we went to the ZOO! and it was fun and a short but awesome visit!
Afterwards we visited Dyess AFB, which is the other B-1 bomber base (our prior base was the other one Ellsworth AFB, SD) and I loved it! I miss the roar and sound of freedom over my head!

Then we went home and passed the heck out!


Hubby preordered Madden 13 and they gave him a gift card from Amazon to use on a Amazon item and I bought a tripod :) woo hoo future tripod  pictures

driving to Abilene as the sun was coming up

Waiting at the dermatologist.


The frugal part of me looked at stuff to do in Abilene and came across the visitor webpage and found a coupon for a BOGO fee and we only had to pay 5 whole bucks for my hubby and I and then we decided to rent a wagon for the little guy, my bag and his bag. 

I know this isn't a sunflower [sunflower-my FAVE flower] but it was so pretty I had to snap a shot of it!

Let me tell you that Texas sunshine was beating down on us that day!

This bridge was very steep but was worth the struggle to get up because the you could feed the giraffe (which we didn't because we didn't buy tokens) but you get pretty darn close to these begging  giraffes.

Hey there buddy!

See ya laters.

This by far was the best part of the zoo! You are face to face with this little cutie and I love monkeys. If you didn't know my little baby's theme for baby shower and room is monkey's because ever since hubby and I dated I called him monkey because he sorta looks like one teehee :)

Pretty sure baby loved it too!

Why? I don't know. We went into the creepy friken crawler section *shivers while I write and see this picture* and we passed the guy with a snake THREE times and he asked each time and finally hubby was like I am going to touch it was like okay I'll go stand over here HA! yikes I don't thinks so mister!

baby didn't really care... he was more worried about the guy because he does not like most boys/men.

Bye Abilene, it was a good tiring day!

Until next time. . . . .

fall & photos.

This blog post will be about a wishlist that hopefully will come true.
Photos of who else. . . baby.
and other stuff.

First off anyone want to redo my blog or know of any good BUT not expensive designers? I royally screwed mine up; it actually has two different layouts on it and I have no clue how to fix it.
On to other things.
I'll be going to Florida hopefully next week. HOLY CRAP it is sorta hitting me right now.
Anyways they have stores that they don't have here so I've done some web browsing and these are the current things I want to try on and maybe buy. I like most people are trying to redo their wardrobe or change their style. Here are links and pictures of the ones I'm hoping to get!
[Also, I want to pick out two or three shirts for hubby, baby, & I to wear for Fall/Christmas Card photo shoot]!

From WetSeal.

From Buckle.

[also looks like Gators colors]

From Forever 21.

[btw this is my #1 thing I want to try on. idk how it will look on me but I LOVE IT!]

From Forever 21.

From Forever 21.

[love the color blocking]

So, I emailed myself these links so I can go to the store and be like WHERE THIS AT!?!?! HA!

Yesterday baby was AN ANGEL! Played great and was just a bundle of joy! Today was another story. If you can wake up on the wrong side of the crib. . . THIS baby did! But only at home! I went for a walk with a friend and he was happy and quiet. But not at home. NO no NO. He cried then giggled then threw a tantrum all for no reason. Therefore I texted my friend to see if she wanted to do something. .  ANYTHING. & then we went to a awesome park she knew of that was all around my babies height range. Afterwards I asked if she wanted to get a snack/lunch and we went to a busy (around lunchtime so expected) little hole in the wall restaraunt and it was okay and very filling! Then I came home and put baby to bed and got my tripod which I have not unboxed yet but it was just so I had a tripod for my DSLR. Off subject I have a package (idk of what) waiting from FedEx at the apartment office so we will see what it is when hubby picks it up on the way home.

Okay here are some pictures of recent events.

Just eating my Kix & milk, mom!

Daddy basically begged for a basketball set for baby, but it is way to big for him right now... so I guess daddy has to put it to use.

Watch out NBA, baby in the house!

This guy is too cool and so funny!

Too silly.

I am just amazed how much he has grown and how independent he is already!

Makes ya smile, doesn't he?

Until next time. . . .

nothing but the usual.

Not much has been going on lately.
Slowly but surely packing.
[If you didn't know BABY & I are going to on a little vacation back to my home in FLORIDA].
MIL is driving out and hanging out (with Hurricane Issac aside hoping not to mess up our plans) and then helping me drive to FL.
Praying and hoping baby will be good and love mommy enough to not make me go insane because it is 15 hours there and back!
Anyways not many photos have been taken but the ones on Instagram so I will post those below.
I am hoping that MIL can watch baby so hubby and I can go out and watch a movie.
On to other news, finally!!! this week has arrived because baby has had a mole since he was born and it has gotten bigger therefore it needs to be seen by a dermatologist. But being in such a small town they are ALL BOOKED or not seeing any NEW clients. So, the EARLIEST (I am talking we've been waiting about 3-4 months) we could get an appointment was this Thursday and that was due to a cancellation. This Thursday we will be traveling about 2 hours to a dermatologist in Abilene and hopefully check out Dyess AFB because that is the other B-1 base (we were at Ellsworth AFB, SD prior to here and this is where all the B-1 pilots train). Anyways let's get down to pictures.

One of my amazing Aunts and I chatted (she is an artist) and I had told her my favorite flower is a Sunflower and she painted this beautiful picture for me!

And to my surprise she included these beautiful cards she also created!

Lately when I make "spaghetti" I make it with mini penne pasta so baby can  pick it up and eat it/make a mess easier. I make it in a huge batch with squash and zucchini in it so we can have a couple days of lunch/dinner.

More please mommmmm!

My mom got this for baby when he was little-er.
Even though it doesn't fit I loved this "look" because when my sister and I were younger we use to wear big shirts to bed and it just  brought back memories and a huge smile to my face!

Little man got a truck today!

So, when we went on a walk with the dogs he played with the rocks and his new toy.

But, he preferred to play by his self and investigate other things.

That is it.

Until next time. . . . 

The E boys and other things.

Today I got to have a little fun photo shoot with my friends two boys!
Actually one of their birthdays was today as well!
Happy Birthday T!

Anyways this is my first "real" one and it was fun.
We hung out around their house and took some photos that can be seen
 [ here ].

Next month when baby and I visit home I will be hopefully taking photos of family and friends and just practice more because I am no where near I want to be.

Tomorrow is play group and a couple mommies already said they'd be there so that should be fun and exciting.

Not much going on here lately. So I will show you some pictures :)

These are just some.




These guys are too fun!

Until next time. . . . 

playgroup and stuff.

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

We had playgroup today and it was fun. About 7 moms and 7 kids came today, I met a lot of new faces today and it was a blast. I got some photos and already showed them and they seemed to enjoy it.

I really want to get out there and just photograph other people, places, and things. I will be taking photos of my friends kids this Friday. I'm excited. It's just gunna be a nice shoot for me to practice and learn. She is gunna use my family for practice and learning as well. 

Next month I might be MIA for a bit because I plan to go home and visit with baby.
I am super excited because I love home and they also have way better food choices, including my moms home cooking. aka Thai food which is AMAZING.

Oh yesterday, I got my Mom's meet package and I don't know if I can even do it because they don't sell the brand here so I have to email and see but basically it is a company that gives you all the tools and free swag to have a mom's meet party and you take pictures and give your opinion about the product. [I took a photo of that as well].

Today I got my glam bag and the photo is below. 

Mom's meet package.









My MyGlam bag for August.

Until next time. . .
