Reasons I love my Husband

I've been a bad, bad blogger. I have a couple of draft posts that I just haven't gotten around to finishing, but I promise to try and get them done and update this more regularly. I'm going to start with an easy one!

I love my husband (duh) and now that we have Blondie Boy there are things he does that reminds me why I love him so much. So here are some reasons why I love NotBlondeHusband, the Blondie Boy edition:

-He bought Blondie Boy "And Tango Makes Three" of his own free-will with no prompting from me

-He is fine with Blondie Boy having pink pacifiers, pink shirts and wearing BabyLegs

-He was totally fine with using cloth diapers and researched them for us

-I'm not the only one who gives Blondie Boy "pants-for-hair."

Gorgeous Blogger Award

The lovely Lexi has bestowed another award on me! I might just have to thank her in person when we are visiting LA if she's not too busy being 35 weeks pregnant and all ;)

The rules for this award go as followed:

* Accept & thank the fellow bloggie who gave this to you
* List 10 things about yourself
* List 5 additional things that you don't like
* Award this to 10 other fellow bloggies

1) I've been keeping a secret. I've had a bit of a hair disaster. 3 box colors, a trip to the salon and silver shampoo later and I'm still not happy. Repeat after me: Blondes can't do boxes.

2) I'm somewhat superstitious in that I believe I can "jinx" myself out of things.

3) I don't currently own a bra that fits. I went to try and buy a cheapish one, but it had 4 hooks and I couldn't get them hooked and figured if it was that much hassle to try it on, it wasn't worth it and I'd rather put up with boob spillage.

4) I have delicious hands....seriously, ask Blondie Boy he loves them.

5) If I'm at home, 99.9% of the time I don't have pants on. I don't like them.

6) I have two tattoos and have had a total of 7 piercings.

7) I have a minor obsession with mascara.

8) I've seen Ben Folds in concert more than any other artist.

9) I love Louie Spence.

10) The only soap opera I watch is a bad Aussie one called "Neighbours."

Five things I don't like (I going to choose foods):

1) Oranges or anything orange flavoured
2) Black Currant flavoured anything (why can't the UK have grape stuff?)
3) Parsley
4) Coriander/Cilantro (I'm allergic and it's gross)
5) JalapeƱos

I've had this post sitting for almost a week already and I'm too lazy to link to pass it on, so if you want it, leave a comment and I'll link to you here!

Happy 30th!

Today is NotBlondeHusband's 30th birthday!

He is my baby daddy, husband and best friend and I love him more than anything. He not only puts up with my crazy, but he doesn't mind and is the most amazing Daddy to the Blondie Boy.

We don't need no water!

Blondie Boy *loves* taking baths and we have some pretty cute videos of him doing so, but I'm not about to put naked videos of my son on the internet. I may be blonde, but I'm not dumb.

Fortunately for y'all, he also apparently enjoys baths when there is no water--who knew!

Wow/Wordless Wednesday

I realize this isn't completely wordless, but while the pictures speak for themselves, they needed some introduction.

My extremely crafty friend Amanda offered to make Blondie Boy a bumper after she heard about all my bumper drama (I ordered one only to be told it was sold out) if I found some fabric I liked.

I lucked out and found some super cute fabric from a seller on Etsy and had it sent to Amanda to work her magic. The bumper arrived today and wow, just wow, I am amazed. I knew she was talented, but the detailing and finishing is just amazing! She threw in a bunch of surprises for Blondie Boy, including a taggie blanket, blocks, shoes, a pillow and a new penguin friend for his ever growing penguin army :)

Thank you so much Amanda--you need to put stuff up for salen in your Etsy store immediately because you have mad skills!!

Thank you!!!
