Isabella + Outside = PURE JOY

To be able to use this title for my post is so awesome, I figured I'd have to wait a few years to say the Bells playing outside is a joy at all!

It has been warming up here and getting humid. Bella played outside on a day that it was 80 degrees AND humid, she had NO issues with her skin OR eyes!

When I picked her up from school that day and walked into a room full of clapping I KNEW she had had a great day playing outside :) Who knew I could be brought to tears by little two years olds chanting "Bella pwayed outside" :)

I am extremely happy and excited about his, but don't want to be too overly joyful just yet. I'll need us to get into June and see how she does before I'll say (knock on wood) that she already grew out of the severe atopic dermatitis.

But I am so very thankful for these moments and look forward to many fun adventures this summer.

Tybalt Accidentally Left Out For The Morning =


It could have been worse, but it still took me two hours to get it all cleaned up AND I couldn't get everything out of our cream rug.

Here's the culprit, behind bars, the sad face kills me, I hope he learned his lesson!

The Winner Is....

I know I was going to wait until the end of April, but I believe anyone that was going to vote has voted and Dress #2 is the one! I also checked with Missy to give her the final say and she agrees with the voting :)

Eventually everyone shall see a pic of me in the winning dress, but you will all have to wait until September :) I am glad I at least found a picture of it in black for everyone.

Thanks for voting and helping me make my big decision!!

Two Runs

Saturday's Run (it sucked, I had NO energy, it was supposed to be a 40 min. run!):

Conditions: 30, E wind 16mph

24:52 - 2.52 miles

Todays Run:

Conditions: 33, E wind 17mph

30:03 - 3.20 miles

I have realized today that I need to stop focusing on my mile splits, it doesn't really matter how fast I run I just need to keep enjoying it!! I put way too much pressure on myself and think I need to compete constantly, I was happy to have this self realization today :)

Bella's First Sleepover

Bella's cousin Ava (3 yrs. old) is spending the night tonight, it will be Bella's first sleepover!!  So far the girls have been having a blast, I even have both of them laid down AND sleeping and it's 9:40pm!!!

There has been lots of coloring on the dry erase board, playing the elephant game, playing with the Little People (especially the Princesses), coloring, and lots of sharing.  I am pretty impressed with these two, they've played so well together and have been sharing like champs :)

Here are a few photos from our night, I'll have more tomorrow of our fun before Matt & Leah pick up Ava!
