Lucius Aurelius Commodus

Check out what Santa brought me:) He has to be the sweetest puddy ever! I named him Lucius Aurelius Commodus or Lu for short. You are probably wondering where the name came from. It is based on a character played by my secret super dream hubs, Joaquin Phoenix, from the movie Gladiator, lol.
Anyway, Lu is only 2 months old and already a BIG BOY. He is like a cat vacuum! Seriously! Has a darling personality too! Me loves Lu!

~There's Someone in the Chimney~

Hi everybody! Yea, I know it has been a long time since my last blog but what's new, things are crazy all of the time:) Amy and I are all caught up on orders for our Loves Me Not etsy store and are gearing up for Spring! Yea, I can't believe Spring clothes already, I am freezing my booty off every day here, maybe a vacation to somewhere WARM will inspire:)
Have most of my shopping done for Christmas, everything is wrapped except for the presents from You Know Who. The kids are really jazzed as usual.
Had to post this video, this is my super adorable little guy Jack, he is going to be 9 on the 28th of December and he got to be Santa in the school program! Right on! Turn up your speakers!

Maybe Next Year :)

My little guy wanted to give mowing a shot so we let him give it a go. Oh lawdy, look at the struggle in the bottom pic. Me thinks he is not quite ready for the job, maybe next year!

What perfect weather to hit the neighborhood! It was freezing at the beginning of the week and all of the sudden it is almost 70 degrees!
As you can see, Jack was "V" from the movie V for Vendetta and Isabel was a kitty of course:)
Tons of candy, treat bags, face painting and games with the school parties too!
The kids had a great Halloween and are already trying to figure out their costumes for next year:)

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Finally a little bit of time for my personal blog! Things are just crazy! School, school activities, homework, swimming lessons twice a week, not to mention that we just sanded and refinished the floors in the entire back of the house, ha. AND are painting the entire house! Jack's room is pretty much finished and looking very cool. We decided to go with a cranberry color for Isabel's room and well lets just say that IT IS DARK! I am not sure if we are going to keep it or not. If not, you know what that means, 2 coats of primer at least and then a different color. lol. Did I mention that we are NOT hiring this out, just me and the hubs doing it all :)
So lets see, that leaves our bedroom, the hall, the kitchen, dining and living room to prime, paint the walls and trim and the ceilings too! OMG, that is stressing me out, lol.
Did I also mention that before starting on this project, I had spent 3 days cleaning the house like a crazed lunatic!! I was not really aware of the house renovation until it was already going on. I am not good with surprises like this, lol. I am trying to be positive and think of the end result though, love me some freshly painted walls and lovely floors!! Ok, enough about that!

Business in our LOVES ME NOT etsy shop, is FABULOUS!! Amy and I couldn't be happier!! We have all kinds of new ideas rolling around in our brains too!! :) If you haven't checked us out, come on over!!

Now for a few pics!! These were taken a couple of weeks ago with the new Nikon D90. Here are Thing 1 and Thing 2 (lol), goofing around down by the river. Notice the changes in Isabel on these pics, from posing, to having a good time, to OK enough is enough. lol.

Beauty of a Child

Couldn't resist posting a few shots of my girl that truly inspire me!
The sweetness in her eyes, the innocence in her expressions. The depth of her personality, melts me every time:)
The photographs..... I can only hope to convey the measure of beauty that exists in all children.

I also found this poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson that is so true!
" The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child"

Loves Me Not Preview

My last preview before the actual opening of our Loves Me Not etsy store!!
Aside from the occasional whine, lol, Isabel and I had a ball doing pics! We celebrated with a Happy Meal of course:)
Don't forget to check out the Loves Me Not blog too for more previews!
Did I mention that I LOVE this fabric! Anna Maria Horner really nailed it with this collection, the colors are so rich and scream fall weather!
Too bad I don't make clothes for myself, I would definitely be sporting something with this line! Ya, don't make the big girls clothes. LOL
Maybe someday....... or NOT :)
