I Wish

That I could get my act together with this blogging thing.  I'm going through a funk right now.  I think it's because I'm just plain tired.  Exhausted really.

I don't even know why I'm tired, and it's starting to really bother me.

But, enough of that, I thought I'd do a little update post to try and get back into this thing.  We've been spending a lot of family time together.  Last weekend my Uncle was in town with his family and I finally got to see my cousin play volleyball for the first time.



She's pretty dang good.  I was so proud of her, I am so proud of her.  I think that her coaches are pretty lousy but unfortunately, that seems to be the thing these days.  She has such a talented team that could be ten times better than they are now.  But what do I know?

It was nice to see them and I'm hoping that Tim and I can plan a trip down to Arizona to see them soon.

We also spent quite a bit of time at my Mom and Dad's house last weekend.  My Mom is planting a vegetable garden and who better to help her with that then a 2 and 4 year old?



She thinks she is a master gardener,



But I have news for her, she can't really be a master gardener in her gardening outfit of choice.



Seriously Mom, flippy floppies are for the pool, or a boat.  Not the dirt.  It's a good thing the girls were there to make sure Pop Pop handled everything the right way.  I'd post all the pictures but it's kind of my Mom's thing and I'd like to see her post about it...hint...hint...Mom!

I took the girls to the park on Tuesday with some friends.  The weather was gorgeous, and now it's raining!  Crazy California weather.  I like it though, but am definitely ready for some nice weather so that I can tan this white body of mine.

Back to the park, I met my peeps at a new park that I love.  That I will go to all the time now.  It's perfect for those of us who have more than just one child to chase after.  It's actually set up so that you don't have to chase them.  I like that.  I was able to keep one eye on the kids and have an adult conversation without worrying that some stranger was going to take off with my kids.





I've been playing around a little with photoshop.  I know absolutely nothing and search for tutorials online for tips.  I think I'd like to take a class but here is my first real try at editing.  I like it.  I have seen some professional photographers that do this crazy editing on eyes that I wanted to try.  That is what I really was working on in this picture, can you tell the difference?


I hope so.  It took me forever to do it.

That's about it for now.  I'm hoping to do a few posts of what I've been doing around the house.  Mostly shopping and decorating.  I found new bedding for my bedroom and I love the way it's turning out.  Maybe I'll do a house tour of my home.  I think it would be fun.

Here is a new find for my kitchen, this new rug.  I love it.  Like love it love it.

I'm really hoping to show you the front of our house too.  It looks so much better than it did just a few months ago.  I adore pulling up to my house now.  I even drive slow!

I hate when I get behind on blogging because then I feel so backed up and far behind that it's overwhelming and I feel like every post I do, I have to pack everything that's been going on into one. 

Hoping it gets better!


I know my Mother in Law would appreciate it!  Miss you Joy!  Can't wait for the reunion in June!

I'm Kristi, the wife of one very lucky and handsome husband, and mother to two beautiful little girls. I'm honest and sarcastic, funny and easy going. I love to eat and love to hate that I love butter. And wine. And did I mention butter? I'm always learning new things, happy to lend a hand, and love my life. This is a blog of my family and the day to day crazy that we call Rush Hour. I hope while you are here that you enjoy yourself and come back often!
