all i want is cookie dough

How did I get through this long work day you ask?

(me=pam, tyler=jim)

I browsed Anthropologie's website and ordered myself some lovely items that were on sale and we rode with the windows down as I sipped my iced tea/lemonade on our lunch break.

And due to the lovely blessing of being a woman I have been uncomfortable ALL day long and seriously will be falling asleep on the couch as soon as we get home from work.

Then I think I will bake that lauren cookie dough that I have stashed in my freezer for a rainy day.

That's right. It's raining here in my office.

We LOVE San Diego. We went with my family to Coronado to celebrate my Papa's birthday and had a blast. Watch and learn.

We ate at Lefty's

We hung out at the pool

We went to the Corvette Diner

We played with our new toy... we love our new MacBook Pro

We played cards in the hotel lobby

Morgan swam in the hotel fountain

We hit up the pool for a late night swim

We rode the wave runners... the boys had an especially good time

We rode bikes and laughed and laughed and laughed

she was showered

My mom, little sister and I threw my big sister Kimberly a baby shower. It was beautiful. She is glowing and we are all SO excited for her baby girl to come meet us. She is due August 6th and I don't know how much longer I can stand it. I guess as long as I have to. Now that Julia has had her baby boy I am even more excited for baby girl to come. I love all of my nieces and nephews from the Rex side, but I cannot wait to have a niece from the Pitts side.


I love you and I couldn't be happier for you. Every time the phone rings I hope it's you telling me you're in labor and that sometime soon I'll get to meet your daughter. I am so happy that someday soon a very special spirit will come to earth to join our family and to make you a mother. Maybe Grandma & Grandpa Pitts are with her right now sharing their wisdom and telling her stories about us when we were babies. I know you will be an amazing mother and I look forward to learning from you just like I always have.

Your baby sister

new life

Our newest nephew has arrived. I snagged the above photo from my MIL's fb. Hopefully there will be more to come. He doesn't have a name yet, but he sure is a cutie! I cannot wait to smooch those precious cheeks. Julia is doing good and so is baby boy.

The following are reasons for my happiness today:

-As of a few minutes ago I have a brand new nephew. Congrats Julia & Aaron! I CANNOT wait to meet your little man and smother him with kisses!

-Husband reads my mind sometimes. Explanation: work is boring and lame on Fridays so he came into my office and told me he wanted to leave & go out to lunch (exactly what I was thinking) and then After a while I thought of where I want to go. Minutes later he comes into my office and whispers into my ear "How about we go to King's" (exactly what I was thinking). Amazing!!!

-My dark red nail polish.

-Dinner & games with good friends tonight.

-My new nephew. Yes. He gets two spots on the list.

i don't know why

Let me preface this post by saying...the thought of having a baby/raising a child at this particular junction in my life scares the heck out of me. Now that's not to say that I never want to dive into the terribly exciting/scary/difficult adventure that is parenthood, because I do, but I plan on doing it when life looks like this (tyler is done with school, has a job that can cover both our salaries, moving to a bigger(hopefully cuter) place WITH a washer & dryer) instead of this (me working all day everyday at a relatively high stress job (that I appreciate and kind of enjoy most of the time), tyler working whenever he isn't at school and studying whenever he isn't doing either of the aforementioned activities, paying tuition... saying "there goes our savings" every few months). I would also like to add that I accompanied my sister's new baby care class with her last night since Morgan was out of town... it's frightening how such an experience can make you want a baby and NOT want a baby at the exact same time.

Due to a lack of activity at work (rare) and severe boredom (also rare) I began to tangle myself in a web of blogs of all kinds. I lingered for a long while here.

Think I may try this idea on my current book shelf with some scrap booking paper

LOVE this Jenny Lind Crib in white and of course I want the matching changing table... I looked it up on CSN and it's really affordable.

I love that this nursery has little pops of color instead of pastel overload

where to find me...

Come tomorrow I will not be sitting in this office, nor will I be doing any sort of work. Unless riding bikes, eating yummy food, laying by the pool or basking in the hot tub is considered work.

These are a couple pics from last year's trip to Coronado Island... and I'm just fine with doing just what I did last year.

Yes. I am a 15 year old girl.

Yes. I went to the NKOTBSB concert last night.

Yes. This is my favorite backstreet boys song/video. Yes. My voice is a little raspy today due to all my brilliant singing along to this and every other song last night .

Yes. I just mentioned the Backstreet boys on my blog.

Yes. Nick Carter, I still have a 15 year old girl crush on you after all these years.

And yes. I will be listening to Backstreet Boys radio all day today.
