Today my darling husband turns 32. He is amazing. There are definitely more things that I love about him than things that irritate me. :) How can I describe Trent for you. Beautiful, strong, smart, self reliant, multi-skilled, completely loyal, so hard working, playful, happy, focused, ambitious, rational, calm, dedicated, wonderful. He is definitely the yin to my yang. I can't imagine my life without him (and wouldn't want to). Happy Birthday honey. Sorry our date was cancelled.

*As soon as I brought the babysitter over Paisley started vomitting repeatedly :(

P.S. I added the girls night pictures to my last post

I've officially stopped aging.

We didn't get pictures while my sister Sarah and my friend Camille were still there.

I turned 29 yesterday which I believe means that I never have to grow a day older. Aren't women supposed to stay 29 forever? Well, that's fine by me. My husband totally spoiled me with a fancy pants camera (a canon rebel) that I am so stoked about. Now I just need to learn how to use it :) It was a nice, normal day. Paisley locked herself in her room that happens to have a key lock with no key and Trent had to come home to do some serious tool work to get her out. I mostly focused on keeping her and I calm by playing with a toy lizard under the door. Then I had a glorious girl's night with happy hour sushi rolls at Kona Grill followed by some browsing at Nordstrom Rack and dessert (pizookies) at BJ's and a lot of girl talk. So great. Trent took some pictures of the kids while I was out. They were enjoying the sprinklers.

I find myself saying things like. . .

Before being a mom, you never imagine yourself saying things like,

"Why I am I stepping in pee?"

"You're not bleeding, stop whining."

"No you are not hungry, you already had 3 breakfasts."

"Who pooped in this trash can?!!"

"Stop touching your privates."

"Don't let Paisley touch your privates."

"You can't have fruit snacks before 9 am."

"Oh crap, I just vacuumed up a lego head."

"We don't put play-doh in our nose."

"Just wear your brother's underwear."

"I can't hold you right now, I can't hold you right now, I can't hold you right now."

"Twinkle twinkle little fart how I wonder what you are. . ."

I've said all of those things recently.

Eclectic taste

Trent doesn't exactly appreciate my decor taste. He would much prefer to stick with a traditional formal style. I think that looks nice, but is so not me. I like mid century modern, but I also love more antique shabby items as well and I love color. Trent was trying to nicely tell me the other day that traditional and formal just looks more expensive and nicer. Basically he thinks my taste is tacky. I told him that I am the one who spends 90% of my time in the house, so he will pretty much have to live with whatever I do to it. I'll try not to pick anything he hates too much. Although, having said that, I did just purchase I hanging light fixture that I'm pretty sure he will protest. I'll post pictures when I get it up. I mean hung. Uuuh. Anyway the paint is up for the front room. My goal this week, curtains and throw pillows. But for now you'll just have to live with some inspiration pics I have saved on my computer.

Oh, how I want a clock wall!

Summer fun

tiny baby lizard living in our backyard.

Trent managed to get these two pictures from my camera.
