Ninja baby

What do you get when you are a ninja? That's right you get a ninja baby!!!
I am constantly grooming my sweet little man, some of the things I do he doesn't particularly like for example, he hates when I clean under his neck, but we gotta do it! Today while I was trying to get an eyelash off  his cheek he decided, he has had enough!!
He grabbed my hair with his toes in a ninja death grip and kinda held me in a head lock under his legs, which are soooo strong!! I'm like whoa! He thought it was hilarious, and started laughing! When I finally broke free I was like Holy Moly I better be more prepared, especially since his moves are becoming more advanced. They started out little pocks to the eye or jabs now they are full on combo moves. lol.

Good times!!

Does it mean I still won if I got the eyelash off?

Hears to all our little babies growing so strong and to all the ninjas of the world! :0)

Everyday angels

Sometimes just simple things we do for one another can really change our day. Just a smile or saying hello, asking someone how they are doing, giving a hug or a helping hand can make someone's day. Not to mention can totally bring joy to your own heart. Yesterday I went to visit a long time friend, who started out patient at the doctors office I used to work at. This patient (friend) is an 88 year old woman who everyone in the office used to dread. She started out ornery, loud and negative and was very hard to please. I was lucky enough to have her fall into my lap. I would sit with her and listen to her tell stories, at first she would tell me how everything was horrible, and she hated pretty much every thing in her life. It was easy to love her because I pretty much love every old person because I adore my grandparents soooo much (not that they are old) lol. I'm not name calling, promise. Anyway, I would take her hand in mine and tell her that I cared for her and the things that were going on in her life. it was only a matter of time before her stories started to change, she was coming in with a much better attitude and instead of complaining loudly in the lobby she would tell everyone how great everyone was and how awesome the office is. It was a wonderful change. We started to look forward to her visits instead of dread them, especially me, I loved feeling like I was truly making someone happy. I think to often in life we neglect our elderly and forget about them. These people are so special, deserve respect and attention. Many of which have been through incredible journeys, wars, loss of loved ones and much more life experience.
Rylan and I walked through the hallway to go surprise this dear friend and I felt an ache in my heart, I wondered how many visitors these people got and wondered about each of thier lives and what their stories were. I pray they do have many people to show them love and that they continue to be our everyday angels. Although we missed seeing my friend, we got to visit with many of the other little ladies. You could see the pure joy they got from Rylan and I, and all we did was just take a quick moment to say hello, wish them a happy day and share smiles. Of course it helps to have such a handsome baby to share with the world, but it was a simple way to share happiness. My heart felt full, it reminds me to stay humble, stay kind and to slow down a bit, make sure not to get to caught up in my own thoughts but to look up out into the world and find moments like these.
Then today when my mom and I were at lunch, this elderly couple was sitting behind us and because Rylan was being fussy I apologized to them. The man said "no need to apologize dear he's a gift from god and so are his cries, you have waited for him a long time, it's your time now and he is perfect!" I was totally taken back. Then he blew us a kiss and left the resturant. My mom and I were like wow, it's like he knew my story!! Such an amazing moment to share with a stranger. Thanks for reading this! I hope you are all having a happy day too

My my how things do change

My days are full of poops, being peed on, spit up, drool, dirty laundry, squeals and thrills and I couldn't love it anymore :0) I love being a mom and find so much joy in the little things. I can't think of anything more special then waking up to a beautiful smiling face. It is so wonderful to see this face, and the many smiles that come from him.

Although it's a lot of work, it is truly the most rewarding experience I have ever been lucky enough to do. I love staying home with my little man. At first it took some adjusting because my life before being a mom was full of running around, shopping for clothes, shoes and makeup getting hair and nails done, going out dancing, working a
9-5, I would leave the house in the morning and wouldn't get home until late in the evening. Nowadays I rarely leave the house at all. lol I do my own hair, I don't get my nails done, and any extra money I have I spend it on my sweet baby. It isn't really a sacrifice these things come without any second thought and with the realization that many of things I thought were so important before really weren't. Some days do come with some struggle and especially lately with his teething process in full swing. My patience is tested but then I hold him against me and his crys settle, or I sing to him and he smiles, or I tell him I love him and he coos and it totally melts me and I have to ask myself is this really my life? Am I really this blessed? I can't believe I have this sweet little baby and a husband who always holds my best interest at heart, who supports his family completely and allows me to live my dreams out loud! Its a miracle and I won't forget how special it is. I hope no matter what it is that brings each one of you happiness you find it and each day is fulfilling.

Beauty Favs!

These are just a few of my favorite beauty items! I hope you enjoy! This blog took me a while, since I'm holding little Rylan and typing with one hand. lol
Urban Decays 15 yr anniversary set. Gorgeous! I haven't actually used this, since I just got it today, but I know I will love it

Sebastian hair products! They smell amazing and work amazing. What more do we want for our hair?

Yes I fell victim to an infomercial one night when I was pregnant and up late. lol I'm glad I did though! I just love these products from
Meaningful Beauty, I mean who doesn't wanna look like Cindy Crawford. lol. Seriously though I love them, and they have the best customer service people Ever! You can customize your kit and have it sent as often as you wish! love it!

My whole fam, including the men and all have stretch marks so being I already have some just knew when I got pregnant I was doomed!! I used these as a combo defense the entire time I was pregnant and didn't get any stretch marks until the week I was due :0( being I was 2 weeks overdue I think I got too huge and no product would have saved me but I truly believe they would have been so much worse without these awesome products from mama mio. Tummy Rub and Oil

All Urban Decay products; front Urban Decay setting spray I love this stuff! if you need your makeup to stay in place all night or day lol use this, behind that the Naked palette, I use this palette nearly everyday It is so awesome and even has a perfect brow color for blonde's or redheads in it with the colors naked or buck. The rest are beautiful shimmers. Then the Vegan palette thanks Kandee...and finally the Alice in Wonderland palette which I'm not sure you can get anymore. Here's a link to Urban Decay :0)

I love this Victoria Secret airbrush fx PRO Primer,it is a silicone-based gel-cream  really feels like you are putting a layer of silk on your face. It also has SPF 20 in it, which you don't necessarily need if your foundation has it already but if not then there you go.
ohhh its so good and only $18.00. I've heard it's hard to get but I just purchased mine right from

Obviously I love this stuff and need to purchase another very soon. lol. This is YOU REBEL by Benefit, Its in Med, they have one in Fair also. I love this tinted moisturizer w SPF in it. It contains antioxidants, aloe Vera, and allantoin for soft, supple skin all year long. I use it everyday. It goes on so smooth and lightweight. I tend to have dry skin and this really works for me. Trust me I have tried so many too, but I don't like to feel my foundation, especially in the summer.

My favorite cheek enhancers! Top left: MAC iridescent Belightful (beautiful highlight color), Maybelline-WF098-mocha velvet I love this color as a contour, The pink and purple are both from Kryolan (super pigmented) the pink is Dry Rouge in Trockenrouge, the purple is actually eye shadow color in Matt Paradise. I know you might be thinking purple on cheeks but I love it if used lightly, we dont wanna look to 80s. lol Then Mud in color glow

Well everyone needs to tweeze, right! So I say why not tweeze with the cutest tweezers you can find? I think I found these at forever 21.

Not pictured is these amazing poducts from this gal I met at the street fair in Roseville,
my favorites are the healing Salve called Calendula salve and the sugar scrubs in pink sugar and lavendar orange! Hers her website although she has a ton more products then are shown there. Not only do all her products smell and work so well but she makes them by hand and was so sweet with the best postive attitude! :0)
