The Biebs, Call Me Maybe, And Apologies

So as I am sitting here writing to all you beauties, the daughter and I am jamming out to Justin Bieber and I am contemplating on downloading his music for the trip out to Utah next week. 

Firstly, I have to show you this video that I have been so lucky to have been shown. I don't know if you have seen it, if you have awesome! If not- you HAVE to watch! Its hilarious and watch the reactions they are the best. I was laughing so hard by the end that I was crying.

The guy is a bit disturbing, but the reactions are hilarious!

Secondly, I have to apologize to all you lovelies. I am so very sorry for being M.I.A. lately. It's been a whirlwind around here. I've been so busy trying to get the house packed. Filtering through all our belongings and trying to decide what I just can't live without and what I can- it's been so difficult. You never really realize how much crap you collect until you have to go through it all. Its been even more difficult because I am doing it alone. The kids don't understand that mommy needs time to get this stuff done. So its not like I can work through the day on cleaning and packing- the breaks with the kiddos are welcomed but at the same time a pain because I lose my pace and then before I know it its bed time. 

I am extremely sorry to all of those who signed up for the Christmas In July swap. When I announced the swap, I never dreamed that we would be moving to Utah. I am so sorry for dropping the ball. I am such a horrible bloggy host. I didn't intend to leave you all hanging. I had full intentions of making this a huge festivity, but then life caught up with me. I hope you all can forgive me and I will be brainstorming on how I can make it up to you all.

Thank you so much for being so wonderful! And I hope that I can get back to blogging more often. I have to catch up with all of you.

Flashback Friday-Happy 5 Months

Emery 5 days old
March 15, 2012

My little man is officially 5 months old. I cannot believe it. I feel like this time is flying by so fast. Evangelina didn't grow this fast, did she? I feel like he changes every moment. Its insane. 5 months of pregnancy is definitely much longer than 5 months of his life. I truly believe that this little man can't wait to grow! Impatient little boy! He was impatient from the get go, but he truly is amazing. Yes, I am biased, but if you meet him you would think so to. He always has a smile on his face from first thing in the morning until bed time. He sleeps through the night (since his 2nd month.) He is cuddly and sweet. He makes some of the most awesome faces! And he is so laid back.

Happy 5 Months, Emery!
I love you!

Ready to go, go, go.

  • I am so ready to join my husband here- St. George, Utah. I am missing him like crazy and I can't wait to see him again. 
  • The days seem so much longer without him. I try to keep myself busy, but without him coming home from work to break up my day, it seems so long. Luckily, my mom has stopped by twice this week to  watch the little dude while I pack.
  • I am getting ready for a yard sale this weekend and I hope I can sell everything. I have to get rid of everything because traveling 2000 miles is just too expensive and would be even more expensive if we had to rent a U-haul. So we are selling all that we can and taking the necessities. It stinks, but we've got to do it.
  • My parents didn't take the news well, my mom is pretty supportive, but still very sad that we are moving so far away. My stepdad, is extremely upset and wakes up in the middle of the night crying over it- but, he is being very helpful in getting things figured out. My dad and step mom are very very upset. Our relationship has turned really tense and I hate it. 
  • Everyone says that in order to be happy you need to make yourself happy first. They never mentioned that by making yourself happy you would, in turn, make others unhappy. Ugh.
  • I am so sad to be leaving my family and hate that they are hurting over it, but we really need to do this for ourselves. There's a huge chance that we could be very happy out there- this time.
  • I really hope this yard sale goes over well! They are calling for a 60% chance of  rain tomorrow and I desperately hope that it passes us. Or if it does rain, it rains in the early morning and is just cloudy the rest of the day. 

What's on your mind lately?

Mani Monday- Ikat Nails

Hello beauties!
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! 
Mine was very depressing, but that's a story for another day.
Today, I want to show you my fancy phalanges! 
There are so many beautiful nail designs out there and I can't wait to try my hand at each of them, but one that I just had to try right now was the Ikat nails. This design is so eye catching and so easy to do!
I wanted to do a little tutorial on it, but I just didn't get to it. 
So, I will share this fantastic video with you. 

Simple right?
Here are my fancy digits using this tutorial.
I just love these nails! 
There are so many different color combos that you could try. 

What nail design are you finding too hot to pass up this week?

Flashback Friday- Crazy Cuz.

December 2007
5 weeks pregnant with Evangelina.
In a van in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

"You are the only gringa in a van full of beaners."  -Tio Carlos

Also, I was the only girl in a van full of boys. 
I miss those boys. I miss those times.
I cannot wait to see all their crazy faces again.

Two more days

Two more days until my husband leaves for St. George, Utah where he will be starting his new job on Monday. I am extremely overwhelmed by this thought and I am unsure of when my husband and I will be together again. However, I know that distance does-in fact- make the heart grow stronger. 

How do you feel about distance?
