A lot to Love

I am ♥ing...

You know, even though my TP looks like this most of the time, it serves as a reminder that my son now knows how to blow his nose; and put the soiled tissue in the garbage all by himself.  Seems like nothing great- but for a kid who also sticks soggy Cheerios up his nose, it really comes in handy.

Making cupcakes.  There's just something magical about smelling like spice, cream cheese frosting, and a little bit of sweat.  Yes, Indeed. (recipe coming soon... minus the sweat.  Maybe.)

054134131  This old school VW.  I heart it.  I couldn't help myself when I sawll it...  pictures were begging to be taken.

This 30lb quarterback.  Freakin love this kid.  (Duh.)  Why 30lbs?  You tell me...


Joes.  Leave it to me to love a BBQ pit.  If I had my choice at fine dining or Joes, I'd go with Joes.  I'm about the only girl I know who would suggest a bunch of girls go there rather than say... Cheesecake Factory or something.

And as long as we are in the neighborhood, I absolutely love Old town Gilbert.  It's so cute...

The desert.  Although, I have to remind myself that I love it quarterly, at least.  I may gripe about the 9 months of summer but the winter here doesn't get any better.  It gets cold, which I love...but not horribly frigid.  Anyway I do love the desert even though rather than fall colors we get more and more cacti.  Totally.

Being a celebrity.   Oh yah- did I not promise you many moons ago that I'd explain that one?  I did.  Anyway. When T and I were at the dbacks game recently, someone hit a homer which was heading my direction. AND by my direction I mean 100 feet away from where we were sitting.  Despite that fact though, Tony tried to dive for the ball- and pretty much took me out in the process.  Thanks a lot.  Despite his best efforts, my blurry face still made it on ESPN, however.  He totally got in front of me just so he could have more airtime... didn't work.  I so did get on ESPN.  All 9 milliseconds.  IN yo FACE Tony. ♥ you.9-24-09 (24) That's us.  See it?  Told you I was a celebrity. (sarcasm, for those who are unsure)And my face.  Boo-yah grandma! (you really have to hear me say this.  Just sayin.)


There is something I'm not ing as much...

Well, tune in tomorrow.  Or whenever I feel like posting next. Don't worry it's not horribly depressing.

Wow! You make AZ so fun looking. When I lived there, it wasn't that much fun. I love your photography. You are great. Those cupcakes are great.

Mike and I love Joe's. ESPECIALLY on birthdays. Fall double date? We could even hit a play afterward across the street....

I am doing a cupcake class every Tues. for kids. I'll have to try your spice cupcake. I am planning on making one for Nov. I can't believe Brody is 30 lbs. I think Nathan might be 30 lbs and he is almost 6. I'm exaggerating. I have no idea how much Nathan weighs. Get your kiddo into football!

Mmmm BBQ! Sounds tasty! I go to school in Memphis where there's plenty of BBQ and I'm happy no one's ever shy about eating it.

I'm jealous of your AZ winter. I don't think I'm ready to freeze my boots off yet. :(

Beautiful photos...old town Gilbert looks charming!

I remember Joe's BBQ from one of my visits--yummy! Those cupcakes are sure to be delious too, and speaking of your beautiful 30 pound bouncy baby, he looks the most delicious! I need to hold him and give him grandma kisses---soon enough (a month and 1/2 away)! Love, Mother
