Homemade Parade

Thanks For the Idea Gina!
Okay so this is a fun idea! The first five people to comment on this post will receive one free special homemade item from me. Oh, I can feel your excitement right?

1. It may or may not be good. It might be cute, useful, maybe silly, any thing that I want to make and give.

2. You will receive it within a year's time (likely sooner, but hey I'm busy so let's give me a year)

3. You have to present the same option to your blog readers. Pay it forward so to speak.

I love to make stuff for other people. It makes me focus on quality and actually getting it done. Let's just say unlike Michael Scott, I do not thrive in an environment without accountability. I know what your thinking..."I want to get something, but I don't want to make anything" Come on be brave, it's fun. It doesn't have to be hard or fancy...just fun!P.S. If I don't know you (which would be really fun) include your email in the comment so I can find out where to ship your item to.

Crib Question....

As you all know we're expecting a baby boy this August.
Well I'm shopping for a crib and I think this is my fave... There are HUNDREDS to look at! They're all online not in person so that makes it hard to know if I'm making a good choice. Anywho, I have a question for you moms out there. There are two options for the front side of cribs. Stationary or the kind that slide down. This one is stationary... Is that Good, Bad or does it even matter? Will the kid climb out as soon as he can reach or is that a problem with both... or Neither? Maybe I'm over thinking this but a little advice/input would be nice. Thanks! PS We have a name picked out.... I'll let you know in the near future! :)

Cancun 2009

We went to Cancun last month. It seems like we've been back forever! What a fun trip! We rented a house in a little town called Puerto Moralos, it was a sleepy little Mexican town that wasn't touristy at all, which we love! Our house was right by the beach and the sand was so smooth it was almost like flour. We had a great time to say the least....






This is the view from the front door to our house.. We were so dang spoiled!







The playground in the center of town.. We would get icecream everynight and go play on the toys.











These little racoon like animals lived right up the street by our house andwould come out once a day so we could feed them fruit...



Mmmm, frozen chocolate banana.. My favorite treat





The last 2 days Brian and I stayed by ourselves because my family had to get back sooner. We got a hotel on the beach that wasn't the nicest thing I've ever stayed in but it WAS on the beach and only $63.00 each night so oh well, we lived through it... Good memories. We just relaxed and hung out on the beach and drank some yummy pina coladas.






Brian is NOT very good at putting on sunscreen... He misses a lot of places. At least he got his toes!









We went to a botanical garden in our town walked through the jungle.. It was so beautiful!

A rope bridge over the jungle, it was kind of scary but really cool to do once in my life!



Our favorite place to eat was at a place called David Lau's they had awesome pizza.. I LOVE MEXICAN PIZZA!!!! It's just as good as New York Pizza! And they had the best Fresh Lime Aide... Yummy

Cancun 2009 post #2

Sorry there are so many posts from the same trip! We did so much stuff!





One of our favorite days there was the swimming with dolphins day... Since I'm prego I couldn't do it but I had just as much fun watching Brian... He has ALWAYS wanted to swim with them!

Sorry, I cant figure out how to change the video to the right way... :)


At the Dolphin Place overlooking the Gulf.. What a cute pic huh?





My Cute parents at Tulum... It was way cool because the ruins were right on the beach!




The Beach at Tulum.. The Boys and Heather said the sand was so smooth! I sat up at the top in the shade.


A view of the city...




Shopping center outside of Tulum... Note to self, Coconut milk does not taste like a Pina Colada. ;)



There were huge Iguanas all over Mexico especially in Tulum!



Ole'

Blake with his sweet (womens) glasses that he stepped on in the ocean..




On our way to the Cenote! What will we find?




Heather on our way to the Cenote.... (mexican natural swimming pool)


Heather and Dallan in the Cenote... The water was so dang clear and beautiful!

Chichen Itza and Puerto Morelos (post #3)



The town we stayed in was called Puerto Morelos, it is a federal reserve for snorkeling because there is a huge reef. We had to wear life jackets so that we couldn't swim down and touch it. The water was so clear we could see for 30+ feet! We saw a sting rays, eels, lobster, and tons of bright beautiful fish.




The second day we went to the Chichen Itza ruins, it was so amazing to see the history of these amazing people from so long ago.


This is the market place... those columns are in PERFECT rows! It was incredible!


I think this was some sort of church... That wall looking thing in the front is actually stairs! They are so steep!



The observatory... Makes ya wonder what they were observing?


Another market place where they did their trading... Those columns are not too sturdy... Brian could make them move.



Baptisimal font.. Maybe?

I guess we weren't supposed to climb on the buildings.... one of the parks workers got a little upset at us! oops!
