Hi again

So I guess I'm not really on a blog strike any longer...just not much to blog about I guess. Well... we are in the process of getting a back splash installed in our kitchen!!!! Soooo excited for that to happen. Many of you have wondered how a back splash can possibly come before completing our back yard. To answer your question: 1) it's cheaper 2) I would like to see our inside complete before we work on the outside 3) Owen is in that "I want to touch, eat, and play with rock" stage. So even if we put some grass in our back yard...he will naturally gravitate towards the rock anyway! I will update my blog with pictures HOPEFULLY next week when it's completed. Other than that, we are just getting through a month of Mike traveling for work as well as gearing up for some great vacations.

Here's the run down of our future travels and visitors:
*San Diego in two weeks with some friends.
*Portland (for Halloween) in 4 weeks to visit Mike's brother and sister.
*My parents here for Thanksgiving.
*Mike's parents for Christmas.
Yikes, I CAN'T wait!! Keep ya posted on the back splash!

Blog Strike

As all bloggers experience, I have hit that nasty bump in the road where NO ONE is commenting. I can't help but feel that everyone is sick of seeing me post about Owen. Look, I am not that interesting people! Therefore I am forced to put my son on parade, whether he is doing something miraculous or not.

I will try to be better. And by better, I don't mean another post about a dream staring Robert Di Niro. (That seemed to be the start of my "comment" drought). So, if you are an avid reader of "Adventures in Owensitting"...hang tight...I may be on a bit of a strike.

Random Adventures with Owen

My Mom bought Owie his first rocking chair...and he LOVES it! Thank you Grandma!!!

Try to use your imagination...I understand that this video is side ways, but he looks so cute. Not to mention he is walking quite well these days!

So this is my way of entertaining Owen while I get ready and get out the door! I know seems a little unsafe, but he hasn't driven through the garage yet. I love this clip!! He looks so independent! video

What a dream!

Okay, so I had a dream that I ran into Robert De Niro at Scottsdale Fashion Square. I told him how great I thought he looked in person, and of course he asked me to accompany him to Starbucks. We had an amazing connection, but I was still in love with Mike. Sorry Robert De Niro! However, he is officially my new famous star crush.

Bentley and Owen

"Hey Owen, are in interested in swapping Best Friends Necklaces?"
My girlfriend's husband was at a work meeting for.... get this........4 weeks! Seeing as though Mike was also out of town during Jessica's husbandless hiatus, we spent much of that time together. I am quite fond of her, and luckily Owen is quite fond of her son Bentley!Love the tan lines boys!!!

Owen can find joy in anyone's toys, but his!


What am I doing wrong? Why is the pacifier becoming MORE of a necessity for Owen instead of LESS?


Let's just say that by the end of this bath, a majority of this water was on the floor rather than the tub!
