it has been a few months...

is he a dream or what? time has passed since i last posted something on this pathetic blog... now that holly dolly has this amazing new camera, she has become my photographer! no more red eyes... well maybe there will be when i post my own pics. i am anything but a photographer with my old camera and no mac mac.

i am feeling great about life, except for the fact that my baby boy is growing up. i so wish i could freeze time and keep him little forever. today we went to barnes and noble and read books and i bought I'll love you forever... yes, i cried while reading it to him. he is 11 months tomorrow and cute as can be. he has two bottom teeth, loves books, anything that isn't a toy, and enjoys eating everything. i still bring him in bed with me, even though he can for sure sleep through the night, and i just can't get enough of my wittle bug.

a few things i will miss...

the unpredictable weather... always have a jacket on hand...

strolling around every day with bugman...

the sometimes confusing subways...

bobby hating me taking so many pics...

walking through the city at night and passing by so many cool things...

the food... (bobby thought he had the perfect shot, then the guy walked by)

the parks...

month 8 of Buggy's life...

Saturdays with my boys...

Well, unfortunately our time here in NYC is coming to a close. Last weekend we went to the met, visited some parks, enjoyed some food at the shake shack, pj clarke's, and pinkberry.... it was a good time. I have loved being here so much, it will be sad to leave. I am planning a few more fun things for this week. We will for sure be back to visit a lot! xoxo

waiting for daddy

I am so obsessed with NYC! We are enjoying the ongoing process of exploring the city, finding our own fav places, as well as hitting up some tourist stuff! Last weekend included the festival in Little Italy, shopping, walking around Greenwich Village, eating, and more eating! We also met up with my gal pal Sara and her hubby who were visiting the city.

Earlier in the week, we met up with bobby for a great lunch by the water. On Thursday, the baby and I went to lunch and Soho with Jessica. We got in the car right before that crazy storm hit.... can't believe the damage it caused!

Sept. 11th 2010

Buggy being cute

waiting for the subway... so happy to be together again!

Love NYC

I had the most wonderful weekend in NYC... this city is so fun and so alive! I feel more alive being here. It is just nice to be away from Utah... no offense ;) The baby and I went out and got a cupcake at magnolia bakery, passed by NBC studios, Radio City music hall, MoMA, and many other fun places. I love being in the middle of it all... it was fashion week and there was a lot happening. We ate at some great restaurants... shopped... walked around the wall street area and found a street that is so europe (the subways make me miss my mission).

The highlight was being able to be at ground zero on September 11th. When it was light we saw white balloons floating upwards... and when the night came... two bright beams of light filled the space where the towers once were. All around us people stood in the streets, looking up... I could feel the patriotism in the air and it was amazing.

I am excited to further explore this city, and take better pictures... wish Bobby wasn't working so much :(

Photo shoot!

Yesterday my cute friend Heather Tanner did my hair. Afterwards we decided to take some pictures for fun! Don't mind the workout clothes... this was totally spur of the moment! They turned out awesome, thanks to my talented BFF. :)

I heart Ina...

Barefoot Contessa became my BFF when I was living in Sioux Falls, South Dakota last summer (worst place on earth). I was in my first trimester and so so sick. I stayed in bed all day watching the food network, craving everything I saw. I don't know why all of the food I had made me sick but all of the food I saw on TV sounded delightful.

I refer to her as "barefoot" and I just love her! She is so sweet and her recipes always look so good and easy. I watch her almost everyday and if I miss her, I have a DVR full of her. However, I must confess that I have only tried a handful of her recipes. I don't have a dishwasher and making huge meals stresses me out. So, if you don't already love her, turn her on and make a new friend!

my little bug...

My mom and dad are moving back from Grand Cayman, I am so excited to have them back! Tonight we found a costume box and I couldn't resist playing dress up with my baby gray, even though he is a boy! We call him buggy, bugs, buggy boo, etc.... I thought this was a perfect pic to capture that name. His smile is perfect, that dimple is to die for! He smiles and strikes a pose whenever I turn on the camera. I am so obsessed with him... aren't you?

Tuesday thoughts:

I wish I was more of a blogger.

I wish I had a great camera, mac computer, and knew anything about editing.

I get this weird jealous feeling when look at blogs, for various reasons.

I miss my husband who is currently in NYC working.

I sold our Dave Matthews tickets at the last second for 70 dollars even though they were free.

I hate eating cake and ice cream with a fork, a spoon allows you to get every last bite.

I've never been much of a soda drinker but I've been having a Dr. Pepper craze out of nowhere!

I watch Good Things Utah almost every morning.

Two Years...

Happy Anniversary husbie wusbie!!! Wow, a lot has happened in two short years of marriage... we both graduated and we have a baby! I love you bobby boy and thanks for the amazing date at La Caille! The bottom pic is of us there celebrating, the first three are the only pics from our wedding day that were on our computer. It was such a perfect day when we were married and it has been that way ever since! I love our life together and can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us!

We finally blessed Grayson! I know he is six months old... we have been waiting for my family to come from Cayman. It was very special, just our family at our house. We love you baby boy!

a few more...

North Carolina...

I am obsessed with these pics of baby gray! We had so much fun with Bobby's family in North Carolina. We played on the beach, ate good food, relaxed, played mini golf at the put put, and had the best ice cream cones more than once... we're looking forward to next year! Thanks Nana and Meepaw! We love you!
