Ruby's Bed-Head

Ruby has a special blaket that she sleeps on next to the bed...we call it her "Princess Bed"...well the other night she kept whining by our bed and it turns out someone put her blanket on our bed...and she wanted it down! The second I tossed it on the floor she was out like a light! You can see she isn't super impressed with my desire to take a picture of her while she was sleeping!

Study Study Study...

...that's all I ever do! On a regular basis, this is our breakfast bar.
I have started studying with food...probably not the best idea...but ya gotta do what ya gotta do! I remember having a very close relationship with Crispy M&M's when completing my undergrad and for my masters it has turned into Pretzel M&M's! But for this session I had some Valentine chocolate on hand so that did the job! The end of the quarter is within reach!

Happy Valentine's Day!

When I got home from work my sweet hubby had roses, a box of chocolates and this "I LOVE YOU" balloon. I shared my chocolate and enjoyed my flowers...and Ace really enjoyed the balloon! He literally stood my the counter and whined until we figured out what he wanted was the balloon. When we finally put it down lower on the ground he just stood there looking at it. Eventually he started jumping up and really playing with it. I got a great video of it so I'll try to post that later too! He is seriously, the cutest, funniest, most lovable puppy ever!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone, hope it was a good one!

Mom and I picked up a cupcake magazie/book on one of our many trips to JoAnn's. It has inspired us (along with many cupcake shows on TLC) to make cute cupcakes! These ones were my favorites so far...simple but cute!
I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but it's a chocolate cupcake, with light pink frosting, with white pearl sprinkles on top!

Super Bowl Sunday...

Without question our household was pullin' for the Greenbay Packers! Ben was ready for the game before church, and made sure his nephew was ready too. He made sure Landen was going to wear his Packers shirt from Uncle Ben. And boy was he pround to be wearin' it! He made it very clear that the "Packers are going to win because I'm wearing my shirt!" Before the game Ben taught him the whole "GO PACK GO..." bit. every weekend, I had homework to do, so while Ben watched the game I studied. After the first touchdown of the game (made by the Packers) our phone was Ben's lil Packer fan calling for Uncle Ben with the following message "Woohoo...GO PACK GO PACK GO PACK!" We also go a follow up phone call after the BIG WIN "They won Ben, Packers won...they didn't give up! Woohoo!" It's good Ben has recruited someone to pull for the Packers with him...even if he is only 3!

Beautiful sunrise

Ben having the artistic eye that he does...informed me the other day how beautiful the sunrise was...I was getting ready for work and couldn't be bothered (or knowing me, didn't have time) to he captured it for me! How great is our God?

Out with the old...and in with the new!

After trying to grow my hair out for nearly 6 months...I decided it was time to stop fighting with it every morning and chop it off! I went from spending 20 minutes on okay hair to 10 minutes on cute hair! Believe it or not...this makes EVERYONE in the house happier! Thanks Heidy for always givin' me great hair!
