eventful saturday nite.

livs asleep. finally. dutch and i are supposed to be watching a movie together. but im playing with pictures and trying to make my kid look spooky. ta ha. have a fun holla-ween week!


another first.

well it took just over 2 years and 5 months, but it was finally time for our gal to get her first haircut. her hair has been growing lately..but was all different lengths..and not in "a good layered cool look" kinda way..more in a "mini rat-tail pointy bang baby mullet only looks somewhat cute in pigtails" kinda way. dutch and my mom have said, "just let it be..let that baby's hair grow!" but after her bath the other night i decided to flat iron her hair (dont judge or call toddlers & tiaras on me. she sits really still and i'm really careful.) anyway, i had her walk in to show dutch and his response was, "get that kid a haircut, she has a total rat-tail." so to the salon we went! my dear friend, sweet maria did the honors, and liv sat perfectly still (i'm sure the cupcake bribe had nothing to do with it..) but are you ready for this? i seriously turned to waterworks! tears, real tears. what's that about? she just looks like such a for- real big girl now. is there any other momma's out there that this happened to? insanity enjoys company... anyway, she's so rocking out some pixie-ish bangs right now. pics to come. happy almost weekend!


reason #92 i love being a mom.

i get to make little treats for little classmates.


break it down now.

is it pathetic to say that yo gabba live was one of the highlights of my year? because it. was. awesome. i just transferred pics and videos from my phone to the computer and dutch and i have been cry-laughing at how into it i was..i had no idea. i've debated on whether or not to post this because i'm embarrassed on how loud i was singing. wow. i am that mom. so here's your warning: turn your speakers down because i am belting out "party in your tummy." i asked dutch if i did it the whole time. he said yes. what he won't admit is that he did too. liv was absolutely starstruck. her custom tee read: "my name is liv" on the front. and "i like to dance." on the back. during intermission, dutch came back with a $27 yo gabba live tee which she rocked out the next day at school with a coordinating bandaid. (see previous post.)

and now for the clip... at least i can laugh at myself, right?
