Planning in Motion

The 1st Birthday planning has commenced! I gave my husband specific design instructions for the invitations and he was able to make this very cool birthday invite. I am pleased with it. Of course, I covered our address, so there's a small part you can't see, but I think you get the gist.

I wanted to do more than just the handwritten kind from the store, but I also didn't want to spend $20 or more dollars ordering invites either. By making our own, we only paid for postage and that just saves me more money for other things.....like the cake!!

Hello Technology

I have finally caught up with the rest of the world and updated my sad little flip phone to the iphone from Verizon. When I got my old phone (the revel) it was totally in and cool and within a couple short years, I became so uncool. I have been completely attached to my new phone for the last 48 hours, as I am learning how to work everything (yea, and download fun apps)

Ready to laugh? I actually put my phone in a sock when I went to run errands today because I don't have covers for it yet and I didn't want anything to happen to it in the "black hole" that is my purse.

So for all of you that have had an ipod touch, ipad, or iphone for awhile....blah. If there is anyone out there like me....this phone is pretty awesome :)

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!
We had our own little photo shoot- it was fun, but didn't last too long. I was able to get a couple adorable shots.

Baby Update

Since my computer crashed it has caused a major delay in my posting of pictures so here is my life lately.... Noah is now 10 1/2 months old and I can't believe it. He has started to stand and we are practicing taking steps but he's not quite there yet. One lone tooth is so close to breaking through; maybe in a week it will arrive.

He is very active and gets into EVERYTHING. My nephew came over and they play pretty good together. Since Noah can't walk yet, Donovan has the upper hand. Lola and Noah are buddies and even though she tolerates him most of the time, I think she is really starting to enjoy his company.

The next series of photos is the reason why I have my camera within grabbing distance at all times....

In case you happened to read that our computer crashed and I was having a nervous breakdown that our pictures might all be gone forever....rest easy that the problem has been fixed for the low flat rate of $320. We now have Windows 7 instead of Windows Vista and the pictures are good.

Because of this scare, my summer project is going to be hard copies of all the photos. I am a huge photograph person, stems from my dad. I use to have a ton of albums but then started saving all my photos in files on the computer and then backing them up. Well, I still plan on doing the files on the computer, but I want to have the actual photos. I want to whip out an album and flip through it or show it to guests, call me crazy, but that's what I am going to do.

OMG!!!  I am currently writing from my husbands work laptop because our home computer has CRASHED!!! I am dying. The only thing I care about is all the photos. I have 1000s of pictures from forever on our computer.

Now, the good news is I did back up the pictures at one time and since we have had the baby, but I haven't backed up the pictures in at least 3 months or more, which means any and all photos of my sweet baby boys life could be gone forever!!!

We dropped it off at an IT guy and I told him, "I don't care what you can save, what you find, as long as you find and save the photos- that's it!" My husband is obviously more concerned with tax info and cost.

I may be overreacting, but I just will be sick to my stomach if I loose those pictures. I'll keep you all posted. I also won't be able to post for a while because I won't have a home computer.
