Of the hundreds of pins I have pinned, there are only a handful and some change that I have actually taken a second look at. So many pins and so little time. But before October completely passes us by, I had to share a few photos from our *pinterest success* photo shoot with Joanna and the pumpkin. She was all about this pumpkin. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous and I was trying to prepare myself in case there was a complete meltdown like some of the photos I had seen. You just have to feel so bad for those poor babies crying and screaming while sitting in a slimy pumpkin all for the sake of a silly photo. And here I was, about to be one of those awful mean parents. When we placed her in the pumpkin and her face lit up, it was like a choir was singing and I could breath. She was game and I was ecstatic. Jo has been such a good sport with the bajillion photos I take of her and I am hoping it stays this way. I just love capturing her sweet and spunky personality, such a little ham ;)
What if I could get all my daily cleaning done. Everyday.
Have my weekly meals planned out and groceries bought.
Take a shower and make myself look decent...often.
Have a new and fun learning activity for Joanna each day.
Sing on tune. On purpose.
Get out of the house more.
Keep up with blogging.
Make all of the photo books I need to make.
Finish the painting for Joanna's nursery.
Pick out paint color for the dining room. Guest bedroom/office. Master bathroom. And then paint each room.
Finish the desk.
Be more romantic with my husband and show him that I appreciate him more often.
Exercise 2 or 3 times a week.
Wax my eyebrows.
Get a pedicure.
Call, text and/or e-mail all the people that I have been meaning to.
What if I could do it all. And more.
It's looking like I am blogging on my new mommy time, which happens to be about a week or more after any event has happened. I'll catch up one day....some day. These photos are from a gorgeous evening last week at the park. We had a really great group for our play date and Joanna was loving it. I think she really thrives in a group. She must get that from her dad. Although I love hanging out with people, Jason is the one that usually shines when we are with big groups. He has a very electric and outgoing personality - a great match for my more introverted self. Anyway, so we have been doing great sticking to our weekly trips to the park. (we made this plan here) I hope this amazing weather stays at least through the month of October....even longer would be nice. (crossing my fingers and toes!!)
