Check out my Slide Show!

I made it

I made it through 6 weeks of boot camp. It actually went a lot quicker then I thought it would. I don't have any number of what I have lost or inches, because I missed a couple of days last week. I am not quite ready to be done losing weight so I am doing boot camp again. This time I am only going 3 days a week. I will go for one upper body day and one lower body day, then friday. It will be much easier than having to be there everyday of the week. I can actually plan activities in the evenings if I want to. I am suppose to go tonight but I feel awful I have been sick all weekend so I think I will wait till tomorrow and hopefully I will feel better.

missing him

I am so ready for Jason to be home. His plane is suppose to be here at 8:15 tonight. It is just not the same without him here. It has been tough with him gone Ashton got sick and had to go to the doctor he has an ear infection. So he has been so grouchy and throwing tantrums for no reason. I know he hasn't been feeling well but it is still hard when you are the only one to take care of him.
We did have a good day yesterday with Grandma at Ikea and shopping. Ashton had been on his antibiotics for 24 hours so he was feeling better. He was such a good shopper and went along with us while we dragged him all over the place. Now unfortunately I am sick and feel awful. Oh well I guess that is how things go.

Easter Eggs

I know it is early for Easter yet, but I found these eggs today and I had to put them up. I did something similar to this for christmas with large ornaments hanging like this. It was my favorite decoration this last year. I decided I want to hang something for each holiday this way.

On a different note, Jason is gone until sunday I am so sad and I am going to miss him a ton. He had to go to mexico for work I was going to go with him but then I signed up for boot camp and this was my last week and I decided I shouldn't miss it. I really don't know what I was thinking. I am going to miss it anyways because I don't have a sitter for Ashton in the evenings that isn't an hour away.
Earlier this week I decided I wanted to go with jason so he looked up the price for a ticket. It would of only been 30, 000 miles and $130. I wanted to say book the ticket so bad. But I didn't have a sitter for Ashton and there were lots of things I would of had to tie up for work, so I decided to be responsible and not go. If we didn't have Ashton I would of been in mexico with Jason right now not here in Utah in this weather. Oh well sunday can't come quick enough.

Wedding cake, sweet baby of mine

I had to go and help a store today and make a wedding cake for them. I was excited about it to start with, I enjoy doing wedding cakes and want to start my own business. But I was just so so about how this cake turned out. I know I am probably just being overly critical. It took me forever to do all the scroll work all over the cake. I was not there when they came to pick up the cake. I always worry that something will happen but I didn't get any phone calls so that's a good sign.

I can't believe how fast he is growing up. He is such a happy baby. I went to pick him up from daycare and he was so happy to see me he did a little dance and climbed up the stairs to see me. Then he put his arms around me and layed his head on my shoulder and gave me loves. It is the most precious thing ever. On the way home he feel asleep and he looked so peaceful. I couldn't resist taking a picture.

Happy Valentines Day

These are the beautiful flowers Jason brought home for me. They are gorgeous, I love them. I know lots of people think it is so cliche to get flowers for valentines day, but I for one love getting them. I know that Jason picks them out himself and they are always beautiful. I hope he never stops.

I went to bootcamp early today so that we could go to dinner tonight. We had Ashton with us which is okay so we couldn't go to a real fancy place. We chose one of our favorites, mexican food.

We tried to get a picture of all three of us but Ashton was not liking having his picture taken at that time. But it was cute of Jason and I so I just cropped him out. It wasn't the most romantic valentines ever but we were all together and that is what matters the most. I just want Jason to know how much I love him and what a wonderful husband he is.

My favorite sundays


Today we spent a great day all together hanging out in the office. Jason had homework he had to do and I worked on this little project. Of course Ashton was in and out and into everything. I found this idea and just had to create my own. I am going to put into the box the outfit he came home from the hospital in, the hat he wore in the hospital, hospital bracelets, and the shirt he wore in the hospital. I also put in the picture from the hospital. I still need to get most of the items in box but I can do that another day. I was proud I got this done, along with a page I am still working on. It takes twice as long when you have a 14 month old getting into everything at the same time. But these are my favorite kind of sundays us all just hanging out together.

Date night

My mom kept Ashton another night so Jason and I got to have a date night. Yah !!!
It is so nice to have time together with just the two of us. It reminds me of when it was just the two of us. We went to dinner at applebees then we went to a movie. I am so grateful for my wonderful family that is willing to keep Ashton and love to have him. I know some people are not as lucky to have family close by that is willing to help all the time. It is nice to have the time alone together, but on the other hand we miss Ashton a ton when he isn't with us. The house is just too quiet and when we are out I notice the babies all around us. Isn't it funny how when your kids are around you would like them not to be, and when they aren't around then you wish they were.

miss him already


I just love this picture of him watching baby einstein. He gets so excited to watch it and he usually watches it standing up.
I miss Ashton already. My mom came and got Ashton tonight she was up here in SLC for a class and so she picked up Ashton and took him home because she is watching him tomorrow while I am at work. It seems so weird to be home without him. He is so full of life and is into everything it gets really quiet when he isn't here. He has only been gone for 30 mins but I miss him. I know he will have fun with grandma and grandpa. Jason and I would have some great alone time together tonight except for the fact that he has a test he still has to take tonight. I am so fortunate to have family that is willing to take Ashton and loves to have him spend time with them.

his laugh

I love to listen to Ashton laugh it can brighten up my day in an instant. Ashton has found a fun new game that involves playing with sticks and terrorizing the cats. I found him in the living room playing with the decorative sticks he was having so much fun I didn't have the heart to stop him. I know it is not the safest thing for him to be playing with, so I have moved the sticks so they are not as easy f0r him to get to. I also loved the fact that Grey was actually playing right back with Ashton

What a wonderful husband

Jason came home today with these beautiful flowers. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband. I love that he will bring flowers home just on a whim. There doesn't have to be a reason other than to make me smile. I am so grateful that he is so wonderful, he is great to help when I need him to and be there for me and Ashton. I just hope he knows how much I love him.
Not only do I have a wonderful husband but I also have an adorable child. Ashton discovered a new way to play with his magnets today. I don't know I feel about it because it does make more work for me picking up after him but he is so cute how can I stop him from doing it. It is so much fun to watch Ashton grow up and become his own little person. I love him with all my heart I can't imagine life without him.
