Happy Earth Day, 5QF, and the wedding is tomorrow!!

I simply cannot believe that tomorrow at three, Lon and I will be getting married! This just blows my mind, and I've think I've finally figured out why. :) When I first met Lon's older brother my first (and only so far lol) year of college I would I never thought that three years later I'd be getting married and have a toddler! And definitely not to Lon! :) Lol I was seeing someone else at that time and was still young and wild, I didn't think I'd settle down and have kids for another five or ten years! I was a free spirit to be reckoned with back then. :) But Lon tamed me lmao (We both did some taming) and now I'm just another boring mama who turns in a ten pm lol. I wouldn't have my life any other way though! I love my boys to the sun and back!

Lon I can't wait to marry you! <3


Ooh today is so busy for me! Happy Earth Day too everyone! We will be doing lots of running around today because we have my mani/pedi, a playdate at Riverfront Park, my bouquet viewing, Earth Day at Zoo Montana, Lon's last minute tux pieces shopping, work, and the decoration making with Jenelle! I will be so exhausted after tonight, I will sleep like a baby even though I'm so excited for the wedding. :)

What is your favorite Easter tradition?
Easter egg hunts. I love setting up for them and then watching the excitement in each child as they search for eggs. They are so much fun! :)


We are hoping to take time away from the wedding Saturday morning and take Alan to his first Easter egg hunt! Last year we just went with Grandma Melanie, Aunt April and Uncle Kalvin to watch, and the weather was no good so little 7 month old Alan had to stay inside. But this year, we are taking him and he can participate! Ooh he'll be so excited! :) Lets just hope he doesn't get distracted by all the other children and forget to grab eggs lol.

Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
I am 100% a "Jump in and out the shower, hoping it works just like a carwash" type of person.
:D Lmao! I hate bathing and how tedious it is (I'm a hippie remember lol?) and showering isn't much better. This only increased when I had Alan, and spent a year as a SAHM with the Cling Miester. :) The only time I would get away from him, to shower or even pee somedays lol, would be when he was napping. And I was super paranoid mama back then, so I never liked being out of earshot of him even if he was asleep. So I'd jump in, lather up my whole body at once, and rinse. And done! Tada! :D

Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?
Yeah I can parallel park, can't most people? I mean, its on the driving test? :) And I don't necessarily remember the last time I did it, but I know that tonight I should have. I went to my parent's to pick Alan up (They watch him from 6-8 every night while I'm at work) and the only "available" spot was right in front of their driveway. So instead of parallel parking like I should have, I just drove in forward and scraped into the side of my dad's company truck, fml. Thankfully it didn't do really any damage to either vehicle, but the same can not be said about my pride lol. :)

What is your favorite Easter candy?
Reese's eggs! Yum they are so delicious, that's all I ever get from my family for Easter lol.


Easter: do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
Haha I literally just wrote about this nine days ago. :) You can read about it here. In short, we go all out with the Easter Bunny. But another thing we do differently than most parents, we do not tell our son that the Easter Bunny (or Santa Claus for that matter) is real. We tell him its a fun story that helps us celebrate the holiday. :)


  1. Have a great time today! Congratulations!
