a lunch date.

hiii! so I've been a little m.i.a. on the blog front lately due to some juggling! the blog, life as a wife, this mommy thing (which only makes me happier & happier everyday b.t.dubbs. :)) and my latest creative venture (that I'll share more on soon!) I'm happy about all of it & working on my juggling skills...
thankfully, because of this new venture, I'm getting to see a whole lot more of my sweet parents, which is making me happy, and they're getting to see a lot of Abel, which is making them happy :)
the other day we had lunch together in old town, at silver grill! it's been around since 1933 & is a fort collins staple. like, lines forever on the weekends staple. it's only open for breakfast & lunch, and is very popular for it's gourmet cinnamon rolls. the food was great & I'd recommend stopping by if you're ever in the area! mostly though, i enjoyed the company of my mom & dad. there's just nothin' like it...

5 reasons i’m a rockstar, by abel

photo 1

1) i’ve got lashes for days… pretty dreamy people. pre-tty dreamy.

2) ummm,  i wear cardigans.

3) my face is pret-ty popular around here… i’m the background image on atleast 7 people’s iphones.

4) when my bodily functions prove to be in working order i get toooonnns of cheering… do you?

5) chins. plural. yea, how many you got?

it was like Christmas morning…

…when these bad boys showed up!
instagram pics!! i had been dreaming up this wall for a while!!
i love my nice camera. it takes great pictures, great quality… but there is just something special about this little instagram app. it captures so many great moments that might go missed in the time it takes you to get out the camera! it also captures the little stuff, the details of every day. getting these photos printed through PostalPix made me so happy! it was so so tough picking photos to print, and then picking out of those which would go up on the wall… but thanks to that easy to use app, we managed & i am currently thinking of a creative & cute way to display those that didn’t make the wall.
thank you husband for measuring & taping off the wall for your “i’ll just wing it…” wife. it wouldn’t look near as awesome without you!
happy monday friends!

the waffle lab & other thoughts on a thursday.

happy cloudy (around here) thursday to you!
you guys... last night i survived my first outing without Abel.
for the past 8 weeks(tomorrow, *tears*) he has been by my side 24/7, so needless to say it was tough to leave him. there may have been a few tears & i may have texted my sister no more than 5 minutes after we left the house, but i made it. i honestly do not know how chris can leave him when he goes to work during the week. we love him so much! i had a good time with husband & the people we met up with, but if nights without him could be limited to like once a year, i'd be okay with that! this little family of three likes to stick together :)
on a different note... st. patty's day brought out the food trucks that have been in hiding during these cold months! i was beyond excited when we pulled up and saw The Waffle Lab up & running! you know... with our love for waffles & all. we went all deluxe & ordered the strawberry, banana, nutella ones (the european).... NOT SORRY. this truck being less than five minutes from our house starting april first could be a reeeeal problem.
