Being Washingtonians

It's been FOREVER since I have written on this blog, and honestly I don't think it will be around much longer. We just got the internet at our little beach cabin and that makes it easier, it's that I think I may start a different blog and put my free time (what's that?!?) into that. It will be about hair and how to love your hair at home....trying to come up with a good title.
Anyway, I have no event to report, nothing humorous to say, just a basic 'hi! We're still here!!'. Lala is huge and speaking in scentences. It's a little surreal at times. I'm looking forward to the weather warming up so Lala and I can play outside more and start gardening. Adam is working and looking forward to the Cruise season. He has been selling his sculptures to a few cruise lines and that has turned into our 'busy season'. WA has proven to be frustrating and annoying about giving me my Cosmetology license in this state. It's a whole debacle, I kinda don't want to get into it. Anyway, that's the official update. I'll keep you posted on the blog thing.... here's a recent pic of Lala.

The Big Move

Where to start, where to start?
We moved to Washington. Thats a good place to start, right? It has been both really, really cool and really, really hard at the same time. We are broke, but that is to be expected when you first start to live the life of an artist. I am so proud of my Monkey!! He is pursuing the life he wants, and as frustrated as he gets, he still is a great father and husband. I am going to be taking the state boards again (lame) in WA because they don't recognize my active license.
We are living in a cabin on the beach which is very fitting for a small family of starving artists! I love it! I have worked all winter to get the yard in good condition for the spring. I am very excited for all my flowers!
We don't have internet at the cabin yet so it will be a little while till I can update again.
Dont lose faith in me! I will be back as soon as I can.
Here is a photo of Lala to keep you at bay, until next time.
p.s. She is talking in sentences and starting to potty train herself!! How did I get so stinkin' lucky!?!?!

I cant believe so much time has passed since my last post! How the heck did that happen?! Lavender has 4 almost 5 new teeth now and is too stinkin' cute for her own good. A while ago I started working at the David Douglas Salon part time and love it there. It is a good fit. Luckily I did start working there because a few weeks ago Adam got laid off and is now looking for work wherever we can find it. My boss was pleased to hear that I wanted more hours so now I am working almost full time.
Luckily we have this beautiful little girl to keep us occupied! It's hard to not be happy when she smiles at you like this!!

Showing off my 2 bottom teeth. I have 2 on top to match now!

Love this one!!

Thank you Auntie Melinda for my cute swimsuit! It fits perfect now!

I love this little sideways look. She does it to her Papa a lot. Too cute!!

Valentine's Day

Yeah yeah! I know I'm 2 weeks late! This past Valentine's Day marked our 6 year anniversary. I cant believe how time has flown! We did nothing special and enjoyed every minute of it!

These were our V-day outfits! We HAD to wear pink and red! I don't have much to say things are much of the same around here but I may be getting some work soon. I'll keep you posted.
Here is a little video of Adam playing with Lala. He can really get her giggling! I love it!

I needed to post this. This is her favorite thing. She gets her bouncer going so hard that her head gets bounced off of it! Plus I caught her favorite sound on film! It was a lucky shot, and I needed to show it off. :P

The Little Things

Almost two months ago I was washing a load of laundry when I smelt burnt rubber. I went running to the source of the smell (our bathroom/laundry room) and opened the door to a room full of smoke. It made our whole apartment stink! I opened all the windows and Lala and I hung out in our winter coats and snuggled in blankets for an hour. Losing something like a washer in an area that isn't exactly polluted with laundromats, is quite traumatic. Of course I had a great time going to my sisters house to use her washer but its just not the same. There are things that needed washing that got put on hold because of the inconvenience of it. The floor mats for example.
So here I am on this beautiful monday morn*-wait.. its afternoon already? er.... beautiful Monday afternoon, my shower curtain is soaking in the washer while my jeans are in the dryer. Lala is snoozing, the washer and dryer are humming from behind the bathroom door, I'm sitting down to have some lunch and update my resume. (side bar: I found a salon to work in)
Today is a good day to stop and appreciate what I have. What little things did you notice today?

my lonely shower curtain hooks. I think they are pretty, and I love the shadow behind.
