It’s Me Again!

Apr 26, 2014

I know, it’s been a long time. So much for keeping up on this. Oh well.

The good news is, everything has been going really well! I love my job, I love my family, I love that its getting warmer outside. I’m so ready for some good weather and getting outside again.

I’m learning a lot, and at the same time I still get to work with WordPress. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to actually expand my skills now. After wading through all the new things, it’s a relief to get back to something I really know, and since I worked with WordPress for 3 years, it’s kind of like coming home. It’s such a nice combination.

And to top it all off, I finally get to go on a real vacation this summer. This will be the first real time off I’ve taken since Lucca was born (two years ago btw, holy cow!). And I only took two weeks off for that. We’re headed to California this summer, spend some time on the beach, and see some family. My oldest brother is getting back from deployment shortly before that, so it will be nice to celebrate him being home and Lucca will finally get to meet another of her uncles for the first time, which I am really stoked about, and various cousins as well. She’s never been to the beach either. It’s going to be a blast.

I have been taking pictures, even though I have been slacking on the blog…so many pictures. Let’s see what I’ve got.


Big Changes! Oh and More Pictures

Jan 26, 2014

It’s funny how much your life can change in less than a week. Looks like I am moving on and up in my career. I got a great job offer this last week. I’ll be sad to leave behind my coworkers, but I’m excited for the new opportunity! I can’t wait to get in and get to work. I’m going to be learning so much, and being the nerd that I am, I’m stoked. I just wish I could start sooner, but I have to do what I have to do and wrap up loose ends for my old job. Yay for the future!

So it’s been a week since my last post, lets see if I can sort all my pictures out.

Day 20 – Daughter again, but come on! She’s adorable.




Day 21 – A job offer!


Day 22 – Ok so she’s my go to picture. But I am thankful for her everyday. Maybe I should get more creative?


Day 23 –  I just like seeing double numbers on the clock :). 11:11


Day 24 – More adorable.


Day 26 – I finally got to see the otters at the zoo. They’re always hiding. I love them.



Adventures and Nerdness

Jan 19, 2014

I feel like I’ve been geeky this week – don’t judge (unless your judgement = love).

Day 16 – My Hearthstone Beta


Day 17 – My Doctor Who lunch date with Lucca (the show per her request btw, proud mama here).


Day 18 – Taking my daughter to her first movie at the theater – dawwwww!


Day 19 – Zoo Day – thankful to my parents for getting us a pass so we can take her to see her monkeys and I can watch the seals and sea lions



One of those days

Jan 15, 2014

Had some trouble coming up with things to be thankful for today. So of course it will be the Lucca again. She can make me smile any day (even if she has been part of the problem with her trouble making toddler ways).

Day 15 – dancing monkey jammies for my dancing monkey (have I mentioned she loves monkeys?).


Week 2 on the Photo Thing

Jan 14, 2014

Ok so I’m still taking pictures…let’s get to it!

Day 8 – Even though my job stresses me out sometimes, I still love what I do. CSS Geek!


Day 9 – Grateful for the chance to show my baby how to build a snowman


Day 10  – I may be a loner, but I’m thankful for nights out with friends.


Day 11 – Out of the blue toddler performances. Where does she come up with this stuff? I’m amazed everyday.



Day 12 – Story time at the library! I love seeing her have fun out there.


Day 13 – Toddler outfits, how amazing is this one!?


Day 14 – Banana Bread! I don’t make it very often but I love it.


Some More

Jan 08, 2014

Seeing as it’s been one week and I’ve already failed at posting the pictures daily you can pretty much expect it to be par for the course. I have however been taking the photos, so that’s a tiny victory. Here’s my update for the last few days.

Day 5 – I love good children’s books.


Day 6 – My wonderful little family. Love it when she snuggles up to daddy.


Day 7 – Look at that silly girl. So glad I get to see her adventures everyday.


The Picture Plan

Jan 02, 2014

I’ve decided to try a thing I heard about recently: take a picture everyday of something I am thankful for. I take plenty of pictures all the time on my phone so maybe I can do it. I’ll post them here as a way to keep track. Here’s yesterday’s and today’s.


Happy new year! A great way to start the year cuddling with my sweet sleeping baby.


Cousin time. The girls are doing they’re hair. So grateful to have my niece come visit and spend quality time with my daughter.
