I'm Super Smart

My diet consists of variations of the following ingredients:

Top Ramen
Chips and Salsa
Ranch Pretzles
Ketchup {some times on food}

My worst enemy... canker sores in my mouth!
What am I supposed to do? Ignore my left over chili's chips and salsa ?

Nope, ate the whole thing... my mouth is on fire...
it was totally worth it


Ah-Maze-Ing Weekend!

I need to build a Charlie-and-the-Chocolate-Factory-type-transportation-elevator-thing between my house and Gilbert/Mesa Arizona... I just want to be there all the time. Alas, I have a job and home and what not here in stupid San Diego, so Im stuck for the time being...

Whelp, the time FINALLY came for my big sister Christie to be induced and bring us that precious gift from Heaven. Melissa and I were a yittle on edge cause we planned a birthday slash baby party for Christies 30th b-day on the 16th. Her due date was the 19th, then the 9th so we thought either way we'd be fine... wrongo!

She went to be induced on the 14th... they sent her away [hospital too full] So on the 15th, we waited patiently for the hospital to call... they finally did at 10 am... so we plotted on how she could get to the shower by 2 the next day [so evil... I mean, the lady was in LABOR!]

Christie didnt end up even birthing until the morning of her 30th birthday... July 16th at 6:36 AM baby Lydia Jane Lott was born!

{might I just add that I am the one that suggested the name Lydia? I win!}

The little chub!

Im calling her 'Diddy'

This pic makes me tear up every time... Lucy LOVE her baby sistie... they're gonna be great friends!
Also, Lucy was born on my birthday and Lydia was born on Christies birthday... so mark you calendars for Melissa's bday, March 20th 2013 for Christies next bundle!

Phase 2 is deciding what to do about the shower/birthday... Melissa and I are die hard theme party throwers, and had been planning every detail of this party for ages... we were not about to let this slip away from us... AND Christie wanted a party, so who am I to deprive her?

24 hours after giving birth our 'Welcome Baby Cakes' party was on!
Go over to my sister Melissa's blog to check out all the details... Im in love!

How cute is her house?

Aunties with our babies... I mean, Christies babies... whops!


Polish it Up!

I love nail polish... and Im on a kick right now
I work at a middle school so I get in the know with all the trends and such {p.s. how do parents pay to get their 12 year old daughters to get acryllics every 3 weeks? stupid!}
Anyhow, trending now is the crackle polish! I love it!

My dad's wife Lisa sent us all some to try... I think its super cute!

{ignore my disgusting toes...}

I found this coupon for Rite Aid if you want to get some for your summer toes and be in the trend!

You're welcome in advance!



As some of you may know, my older sistie Christie is due any moment to give me a SECOND NIECE!
I am extatic mostly cause my FIRST NIECE Lucy is the most precious thing of my life...
So being the nice sister that I am, took a quick treck to Mesa AZ to help her prepare for baby button.

These were the items on my agenda for the week in Arizona:
- help prepare Nursery
- play with Lucy... a lot!
- wait on Christie hand and foot so she doesnt have to do anything (no pregnant woman ever should)
- help Melissa paint house
- Spend time shopping and shooting the breeze with my two sisties!
- baby crafties
- Oh yah, and witness the miracle of birth (not personally {no thank you} but baby sitting Lucy while the Christie was in the hospital)

Everything was checked off that list except the last one... and Im super ticked about it!

How am I gonna be there for a week and she just didnt have her?
I am still waiting patiently for baby button to be born {and for them to decide on a name already!}
Here are some quick pics from the week...

Super amazing shirts I made for the babies! Im obsessed with them... just printed off the computer and ironed those guys right on!

Those of you that know Christie know that she is terrified of dogs... always has been... Melissa and I both have precious puppies... here is proof that Christie was too miserable and pregnant to even care that both puppies love her and were snuggled up right next to her! Score!

This picture is disgusting, but Melissa and I finally found The Coffee Shop. Famous cupcakes that won Cupcake Wars... super cute place... super yummy cupcakes!




Cookies should not ever, no never be crunchy

That's why they invented milk, cause Oreo's are only delicious when you dip 'em in it
