hair failure and my latest gift from the hubs!

the big hair cut was a failure, for a number of reasons:

1. My hair gal did not want me to cut it all off!

2. There was not enough time for me to get a major hair cut, I was already 30 minutes late to my bff's wedding rehearsal, but I did have the courtesy to left the maid of honor, her sis and my other bff know that I would be late and I was terribly sorry...
3. The hubs wanted to keep it longer so I gave in for a bit longer...

thus this is my new look. My hair is still about 2-3 inches shorter and my bangs are much shorter as well...


I loooooove the headband I am wearing!

you can't see it very well, but trust you me, it is cute cute cute!

In other news, I don't think I ever shared the wonderful gift my hubby got me right after the wedding...it was a wedding gift to me for all the planning and stress I endured for the last 6 months planning my wedding and helping with my sis's wedding and my bff's wedding, along with all the pre wedding festivities that go along with a wedding...



Sweet huh! it is the top of the line, biggest baddest ipad...i love love love love love it!

I have been reading all of my tori spelling books on the ibook app, and i love it!

Yesterday I had a bit of a cleaning frenzy, i scrubbed the floors, (we have white tile floors, i do not recommend white! bad idea landlords, bad idea!) washed our sheets, went grocery shopping and cleaned up my pile of clothes in the bedroom. Plus I unloaded the dishwasher, which is normally the hubs's job and loaded it up, again, normally the hubs...plus i made a yummy orzo salad, my new go to summer recipe...it is sooo simple and tastes so good...hmmm, i might have to do a post on the yummy salad...I am sure I will make it again this weekend

Tonight I plan on uploading a boatload of photos, updating facebook and adding a few more blog postings...hopefully the force will be with me...

baby on board...for my sister!!!!

I can finally share the news, my lil’sis is pregnant!

They are due January 30, 2011.

I cannot wait, this will be the first grandchild for our immediate family. The first on my dad’s side and the third on my mom’s side.

They found out a week before my wedding, keeping a secret has been hard work! You want to jump up and down and shout it from a mountain top, but you also want to wait for the first trimester to be done to make sure there are no issues. I know it will be killer for me to keep my big fat mouth shut once Scott and I are expecting…

Here is a photo of the baby…




And a photo of mama…



I can’t wait until they find out the sex of the baby so I can go shopping! Hahahaha!!! Baby stuff here I come!!!

Part 1: pre-wedding festivities

I think I am finally ready…to blog about the wedding!

For those of you just tuning in, Scott and I were married on April16, 2009, on June 5, 2010 had our wedding. It was amazing!

I thought it would be easiest on me and on your eyes to break the events up!

On Thursday night we had a nice dinner with all of the family who came in from out of town. There were about 17 of us at a pizza place, talk about craziness! It was a great time, we had pizza, drinks and got to meet with everyone. There was also a balloon man there and of course the bride and groom would not be complete without balloon hats!

After dinner we walked across the parking lot to our lovely hotel and all sat around the fire pit and kept the socializing going!
















Friday night was of course the rehearsal dinner. Of all of the planning that needed to be done for the wedding, the rehearsal dinner was the thorn in my side. The long and short of it is, every place that I wanted to do the dinner at did not work or was almost as much as the wedding reception price! I cancelled the dinner and then Scott decided that we must have a rehearsal dinner and spent way more then we had planned…but it turned out to be a great event. After a quick rehearsal at the church we all headed to our hotel to have a wonderful Mexican buffet dinner! It was beyond yummy…

We did a little gift exchange, which included really cool personalized bar signs for the guys and coach purses for my wonderful bridesmaids! P.S. my bridesmaids all rocked!!!!!!

I also presented Scott with a photo book of our first year of marriage…it was a big hit!

I was exhausted by 930 and insisted the party shut down…all week we had been in our awesome hotel room with the comfiest bed, and all week I was up by 630 am! By the time Friday night rolled around I felt like I hadn’t slept in days! Before scott and I parted ways until we met again at the alter we took a walk along the bay to have a bit of alone time.

Up next, getting ready…the guys and the gals!

my baby khloe is a big girl today..

Today khloe became a woman...hahaha...she is still my baby since she is only 7.5 months old.

She was in heat today...

Scott did not want to believe me that she was in heat when we saw spots of blood on the floor.

About an hour or two later when there was more blood on the floor he got freaked out and we had to do a major inspection.

We are also dog sitting this weekend, thank god the doggy is a girl, old lady daisy...lol, she is 7-9 years old. The owners aren't exactly sure because she was a rescue dog.

After doing some online research, hello google.com, it became obvious that we needed to get khloe lady doggy diapers. I went to Petco, without khloe of course, I didn't want any boys to mount her!, i bought a crap load of things.

First i picked out a cute little outfit for her...if she is going to be in heat at least she can be cute! Plus i figured a doggy diaper wouldn't look so crazy if she had a top on as well!

I made my way to the doggy diaper section...man alive those things are expensive...i went with the cloth, washable kind...i know that khloe would eat the disposable kind. I think needed to buy puppy liners, aka, the same exact thing as panty liners for women.

I also bought a bag of toys that were on super sale so khloe and daisy would have some toys to play with.

At the register the gal informed me that little girls underwear work just as well, but with hole cut out for the tail, of course!

Genius I thought! I already had to go to Target, I would check the little girls underwear and potentially save some money.

I ended up buying the girls XS underwear and with a doggy liner inside, a whole for her tail, and a safety pin to make the undies a little more snug they worked! 7 pairs for 6.99 and i get to return the crazy ones to petco that were 20 bucks!

here are a few pics to show khloe in her "in heat" outfit!
