I'm so excited for this weekend. Everett turned 2 on Wednesday and we had a perfect little day, but we are having his 'choo-choo' party on Saturday with some family and friends (including my best friend who flies in that night). I have been doing little party prep tasks every nap time and bedtime for hours, stuff like glue little flags to striped straws and other things no one but me actually cares about. I like it though.

++My girlfriends and I had the funniest group text going about this dang freaking dress. Everyone thinks it is either white/gold or blue/black (the blue/black people, including my husband who should be institutionalized) although I see purple and gold so I am an alien.

++Ben got me these earrings for Valentines Day. Ok I ordered them for myself from him for Valentines Day and I haven't taken them off. I got an E and the heart, I love personalized jewelry.

++Favorite dresses at the Oscars were Zoe Saldana (#1), Margot Robbie, Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick and Kerry Washington. (Apparently I'm really into blue dresses this year ;) ) I think Boyhood or American Sniper should have won best picture, Birdman was literally one of the worst movies I have ever seen, hated it so much. I thought Neil Patrick Harris was surprisingly boring as host. Bring back Ellen.

++I saw on some random facebook link spam that Kaitlin was confirmed the next bachelorette? Is this true? I love her, think she is awesome and she is from Alberta! Although I would have loved Britt too, I know she took a lot of heat at the end there but I still love her. Was she not allowed to change her mind about Arlington? (Carly was soooo witchy, can't stand her) Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate. And did you hear Chris is going to be on Dancing With the Stars, anything other than go back to Iowa I guess

++Did you see this trick to stop yourself from crying. I tend to start crying embarrassingly when talking to people of authority (ish). Example-trying to figure out wrongful cell phone charges with the Verizon people--weeping. Talking to passport agency trying to get Everett's American passport-Shaky voice crying, Ben has to take over. I'm not sure why this is, but I'm interested to try this trick!

++I was dying over a friends blog post about being a sunbeam teacher

++ Number one on my wishlist right now. Mom shoes making a comeback!

"Lot's of moms cry when their kids get their first haircut ok!>?"

If you follow me on insta, you know how much I love Everett's flowing, blonde wispy locks! I was so emotional about  his first haircut, I love little boys with long hair but it was getting a little out of control, especially the bedhead! So a week before his second birthday, he got his first haircut!

First a little ode to his hair: 
oh and also...

As much as I adore it, I knew it was time for a cut. And guess what? I loooovvvveee it! My awesome Aunt Norma cut it and it is perfect, she knew exactly what I wanted; to keep it longer-ish and a little mullet-ish. He sat so still and actually got so relaxed I thought he might fall asleep. I was scared it would make him look all grown up, but he still looks like my little baby but all the baby fuzz mess is gone. His hair actually went way more curly and it is so delicious.

How many pictures can you have from a 7 minute haircut? Let me show you.

Friyay (the 13th)

I hope you all have romantic plans for this weekend. Our babysitters (my brother and sister) decided to take off to California for the weekend (so selfish ;)) , so we are going to have a romantic (ish) night IN with both my valentines! We are also getting together with some friends for a BBQ....outside!! This Utah winter is bananas.

++I have been thinking about movies lately because of the award season (just to brag admit, I have watched every minute of every pre-show red carpet and every award show) and I thought I would do my top 10 from the last year. Ben and I's favorite date is dinner and a movie with snuck-in gas station snacks. Now that we are humans in charge of another human we love to watch a movie after Everett goes to bed at home (with kettle corn and m&m's) So because we don't get out much, here is the disclaimer for this list we have not seen Interstellar, The theory of Everything or Whiplash (they're on our list). Also I'm no critic, I'm very easily entertained. I thought the new Footloose movie was great if that's any indication. I just love movies.
These are in no particular order because that is too much pressure
  • The Imitation Game (left feeling equally inspired and depressed)
  •  American Sniper (balling my eyes out in theatre movie, eye-opener, amazing)
  • Boyhood (Pretty incredible, they filmed over 12 years and it was so real and different and I finished it, went and got E out of his crib and rocked him for a good half hour crying, life goes by so fast)
  • The 100 foot journey (so heart warming)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (Only because I thought I would hate it but I thoroughly enjoyed it, wanted more kissing though)
  • The Fault in Our Stars (Saw this three times in theatres, #sobfest201
  • The Lego Movie (I usually do not like animated movies but thought this was so fun and clever and I loved the ending)
  • If I stay (I'm biased because I loved the book, and even more excited for the second one)
  • Veronica Mars (FAN GIRL over here, cult classic, everything I wanted from the movie after watching the whole series twice! And completley funded by kickstarter, so cool)
  • Million Dollar Arm (Inspirational sports movie+Don Draper)
Honoroable Mentions-X-Men, Captain America 2 (who am I) Wild, The Maze Runner.

++Everett and I decided to make sugar cookies for Valentines Day together, Three hours later, we were both in our underwear (everything else covered in flour) sink overflowing with dishes, I'm icing them STILL while Everett is watching Paw Patrol only to realize I had overcooked 3/4 of them.....

++I took Everett to the Provo Beach Resort and put three dollars on our card to play the little arcade games. Everett pressed the wheel of fortune thingy and one THE JACKPOT, 1000 tickets. I was freaking out, he could not care less. I took him to the prize counter, he could of got any of their BIG prizes like an mp3, or a BB gun or gift certificate to The Riverwoods.  He chose 3 hard-as-rock candies and a sticky hand for 20 tickets. We'll be back.

++I told Ben not to get me flowers for Valentines, all I want is a professional massage and Dove promise chocolates.

++Last weeks Bachelor episode? Maybe the best of all time. I was literally pointing and laughing at the TV like a crazy hyena when Kardashian Genie was having her 16-year-old she is going to regret that. Also I started the Blacklist, watched it ALL in the next 3 days, then got really depressed I was caught up.

++My friend Jordan received the most beautiful Hudson's Bay baby blanket from her Canadian friend and I think I am going to get pregnant again, just so I can own that blanket.

                                      'a picture of my child, once a week, every week for a year'


 I can't believe that a mother somewhere in the world hasn't figured out how to freeze time yet...

A fort makes eating fruit snacks and watching some Mickey Mouse magical.

He calls Ben Nandy (daddy)
