I need your vote...

I am contemplating cutting my hair I love it blond but feel like it is a little too long for me it gets stringy so I need your vote and thoughts here are the styles I love!!!

I know who it is but I reeaaalllly love this hair...

I love this one too so much

This is a great one too short and sassy

This is a great classy cut I really like it... But is it too mommy

So these are the ones I like so far. I wish I had thicker hair cuz then I would keep it long but its kind of stringy and I wear it in a pony tail everyday gross...

I need your vote...

Oaks is 2

My baby is 2 can you believe it? It's one in the morning and I am just about ready to go and read my scriptures and hit the sack. But I just wanted to say how much I love my Oaks and the sweet girl that she is. This picture pretty much sums her up. FULL of IT. PERSONALITY.... My goodness. What a dolly. I am so proud to be her mom. I think about what was going on RIGHT now two years ago and I was still walking the halls of the hospital wishing and praying she would come. What a crazy experience. I wish I could pause time and that she would never grow up. But at the same time I'm excited to watch her grow and learn. She is so smart and so sweet... Watching her go to dance the other day for the first time was so cute it seriously melts my heart. I am excited to see the changes she will make this next year. I hope the terrible twos are fun and that we can get through all they bring... I really don't think they will be that terrible. She is talking so much and the more she can communicate the better right? We'll see I guess... HAPPY BIRTHDAY my little sweet girl.

Sis the things I love about you...
- When I come and get you in the morning and you are so excited to see me.
- When you are surprised I love the look on your face.
- When you eat a big breakfast, lunch or dinner I don't feel as stressed.
- When you dance, and sing ariel no matter what princess you are looking at.
- How girlie you are
- When you ask me a million times if you can "watch a movie mom" it cracks me up even though I say no 10 times I finally give in cause your so darn cute..
- When you brush my hair, or want your toes painted
- When you dress up and want your daddy to tell you how pretty you look
- I love when you hug me and give me kisses even though two seconds before you probably head butted, or slapped me...
- When you ask where NIA is
- When you carry around any purse you can find
- When you jump, march, play pirates, read with me....

I love everything about you and I hope you have a great Birthday sis...

My Little Dancer...

Today was Oakleigh's first Day of Dance. At west side studio and she LOVED it!!!!
So cute she got in there and the teacher put little mermaid outfits on the girls and turned on little mermaid music and away she went. She posed for these pictures and it melted my heart. They don't allow parents to be in there because they want the girls to focus and dance. Which I understand but it made me sad that I couldn't be right there. They give them snack time afterward like a little tea party SO STINKIN CUTE!!! She had the biggest grin on her face when she came out. Notice her sad little ouchie on her hand we were getting ready for a wedding reception on Saturday night and she reached up to put her deodorant on like she sees mommy do ;) and I feel so bad the curling iron was right there. It BROKE m¥ hear I felt so bad. But we are taking care of it I just hope it doesn't scar her little precious hand. :(

I know it's not fall yet but I liked the Template:)

So things are rolling right a long these days. Oak is turning 2 next week she is getting so big.. New thing of the week she does not like me taking her PJs off to put on an outfit for the day she screams and screams... Hopefully it's just a really quick phase... I HOPE!!! She is my little swimming bug and she loves playing with Princess stuff check out what I found on KSL... I love when I find a good bargain she is getting this for her birthday and I can't wait to give it to her...

She will also be getting this...

But we will save this one until Christmas...
I don't want to spoil her too much. Bonus I'm already getting a kick start on Christmas presents so much better than waiting and having no money at the end of the year. Even though that's not how we do Christmas that's how I feel at the end of the year.

A few picture updates

RY and I and my Birthday...

Wes's Baptism such a neat day... Thanks Wes for letting us all be a part of it.

I've tried to load more pictures twice and it doesn't load them so I guess that is all for now.

Dear foot,

Dear Foot,

Your hurting me. I'm walking funny. I sit and you hurt. Seriously? I have missed working out for a week and it's depressing. Please get better soon so that I can be me again. On another note. I'm thankful I have a foot :)
I love you foot...

Sincerely, Mandi
