Ohio Trip

We just got back from Ohio, literally.  I am still kind of sleeping, but I can't fully sleep.  So what else to do but blog right?  We visited just because, the mister and I have really busy schedules coming up sooooo we decided to visit family before we can't.  It was a short visit but it was a great visit and we got to go to TWO birthday parties, that we would normally miss so it was was fun!

Here's a few pictures:

The babe and the Mister

The Babe with Grandpa John

The babe and the mister playing in the tunnel

Clearly she was having a blast!


Her cousin Luke, she was kicking him off the chair and he doesnt understand why, you can see the confusion on his face

I think she was being her usual bossy self

The mister can't wait for a boy, he had so much fun playing with Luke

They were bouncing on the couch, so cute

First time at Chuck E Cheese! She had so much fun!

SUGAR OVER LOAD

Its blurry but I love it!


Out like a light with Grandpa Murray, her BFF

She had so much fun.  Cuddling with Grandma Murray

We had so much, it was great seeing family

My new adventure

So I know this was suppose to be one of my resolutions, and I havent been doing so great.  But I feel like my life has been a huge cluster fazzle lately.  Running around with a one year old, helping out my mom while my dad's away, the mister getting a new job, baking on the side and doing all of this with one car!

Blah, but I'm not here to talk about all the crazy things.  I wanted to share all the fun stuff I've been doing.  I am so excited at my new baking adventure! I've gotten a lot of orders and projects lately, including some weddings! I am so pumped!

I've realized that this is definitely what I want to do for the rest of my life and it's an amazing feeling.  I have so many ideas bouncing around my head, I can't take it.  It's so fun to be creative.  I really hate that my real job is getting in the way of what I really want to do.  LOL Don't get me wrong I totally love my job right now, but I love this more. Anyway I have a blog in line for my baking and as soon as I get that up and running I will post it on here but in the meantime, here's a preview of things I've done.











 So many new and fun things I'm so so excited!! Stay tuned and I hope you check out my new blog.  Check out my page too on facebook its www.facebook.com/vanilleybean! Thanks everyone!

Happy new year!!

Yay! 2012 is here. Can you guess that writing in my blog is one of my resolutions?

Starting a new year is always scary and exciting. You never know what it will bring but at the same time you can't wait to see all the possibilities in life.

I've always made resolutions in the past and have never ever gone through with anything and I really want to change that.

I was going to change my blog but it just sums up my life so I'm sticking with it. So here is it is new years resolutions 2012:

1. Lose weight, I have a total goal of 40 by October but I'm going to break it down.

Lose 15 by January 31
Lose another 10 by February
Lose another 5 - 7 by March, April and May.
Maintain weight and tone up by October.

And yes I really have that much to lose.

2. Stop procrastinating. I am the ultimate procrastinator I can probably write an instruction manual.

3. Have more control of my life. Maybe this will be fixed once I nix my procrastinating ways. It's always hectic in our household. I think that's why.

4. Relax more. I tend to worry. ALOT. So this year I really want to be better about enjoying my life instead of worrying about things I can't control.

5. Take chances. You can't grow if you don't and you will never regret trying but you will always if you don't.

6. Spend more quality time with family. strengthen close bonds and make new ones.

7. Be the best example for Camille. I want her to be a happy little girl who's full of life and have great morals. The best way to show her how to be a good person is to make sure that we are showing her great examples.

8. Write in here more. I don't know how many people read it and I'm not sure if anyone cares but it really makes me feel good writing in here and I love that sometimes I get feed backs. And sometimes I like attention.

So there you have it folks, my resolution for 2012. Stay tuned I really am going through with this. Because in the end I'm only disappointing myself.

Write to you soon.

Unfulfilled dreams, promises and other stuff

Sept. 24 would have been the mister and i's wedding date. Not that we split up, we are still happily together. We are still happily together and...broke. it makes me sad thinking about it. We've talked about going to the courthouse and just doing it but frankly, i dont want to do that. I want the whole experience. Im only planning on doing it once, so damn it I wanna do it the way I want to. Right? I want to plan and do wedding things, pick songs and stay up all night making stuff and get wedding crazy. I want all that. (Or at least I think I do) i know that the mister wont care, he'd go at anytime. We've talked about just going to a sandals resort and doing it there with just a few people and then throwing a party once we get back here. That's probably what we'll do. Im just rambling now but anyway. Im thinking about changing my blog. I don't know to what, because im going to be honest I have not list any weight at all. I probably gained some which totally sucks. And right now I have too much going on to even worry about it. So I've been super bad. But my friend Shirin from diary of a messy kitchen ( sry i dont know how to linky thing through my phone hi Shirin!!!!) inspired me to keep up with my blog again. So here I am. Thinking of what to change it to! :) until next time!

long time no blog...

*sigh*, with all the birthday party preparation that we've been doing lately. I've forgotten about my blog :/ I promise to update with party pictures soon. I can't believe she turned one this sunday. I've caught myself getting ready to cry a few times. So this whole week i've been reminiscing the last week I was pregnant. Do I miss it? Yes, kinda. Is it making me want more? Yes, kinda..but not anytime soon. We are financially stretched as it is.

So the day that I forgot about my blog is the day I forgot about my weight. I've been so stressed lately that I've gained like close to ten pounds since april. It makes me sad and want to eat more, you know cause im an emotional eater :( Im really mad at myself. And the more and more I see Camille copying things that I do the madder I get. I don't want her to have my weight issues. What is it going to take for me to realize?

Anyway, pictures soon and part 2 of venting post soon.

Camille's party preview, goals and baking...All by july 24th!!!!!

This year has certainly gone by way too quickly. I can't believe that the babe will be celebrating her first birthday, I can cry! :( she's going to be a toddler. No longer a tiny baby. I DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!

The only thing I am looking forward to is her birthday party. I love planning parties. I wish I just had tons of extra money so I can throw parties for no reason but to throw them.

Also this will be one of the only times I can pick the theme and I wanted it to be very sweet,sophisticated (one year olds can be sophisticated, right) girly and whimsical. So I decided to go with a shabby chic vintage-y bird theme. Im pretty much making, food, decorations and invitations! Here is a sneak peak!


I'm super excited!!! I can't wait to put everything together.
Ive got a great menu in mind too. HopefuLly it all comes together as well as it did in my brain. Anyway....i'll give more preview as time gets closer until then!

Also I'm trying to get in better shape before her first birthday.  I havent figured out an exact goal but I'm going to do it.  Plus I think we might go somewhere fun for the summer and I definitely cannot look like a fat cow when we go :)

Here's the game plan:  Eat healthy and work out.  LOL It's hard.  Its been my game plan all along but can't seem to follow it.  But I'm really really going to try.  I'm going to do my videos on my lunch break and just eat better.  I'm going to start Two days a week with that and One day of taekwondo if I can talk my mom to watching the babe a little longer on one days *crossing my fingers* Anyone want to be my drill sgt?
