It's all thanks to my Mom that I have all these decorations...literally. I don't have the original thoughts. I might get some spark of an idea and then my Mom shows up at the door with a bag full of materials from the craft store. So it's been fun to put everything together and have something fun to do with the girls of my family. Chris isn't so into the decorating. It's actually pretty funny because its like he gets stressed out when I ask him to do anything related to decorating...like he'll be in trouble if he does it wrong. But he did lovvve putting the Seahawks candy canes on the tree!
I took pictures of different decorations around our house...me and my Mom made or put together all of them!
For some unknown reason, this pinecone is my favorite decoration out of ALL of them. I just think its so cute on the candle holder...

We came up with the idea because of all the things we have been learning about online marketing and such through the work we have been doing. I actually planned a different business for different members of our family. We are going to be starting Kailey's Babysitting business and Mom's crafty business soon too!
We are not out to make millions of dollars here. We just thought it would be a good experience to build something from scratch and have fun doing it. We've been doing research, making orders from wholesalers and planning the website and marketing.
The whole point of selling the products is to provide cute and sassy pieces that are inexpensive to girls with our similar style. We went through and picked out everything that we like basically. We also got our little sister's opinions for their age group. We're starting with accessories and are going to start adding clothes gradually. Let me just tell you that I am in LOVE with bracelets right now and there are going to be some fantastic ones in the first order.
We are also starting a blog that goes along with the biz. Its going to include posts about the looks we are loving and also weekly featured items that may be a special on the website and how to wear them and things like that. The website and blog are going to go up within this next week so check back and I'll post all the info. You can also let us know what you are looking for and we will try to include it in our upcoming orders!

Chris loves weekly football and talks about it constantly but NBA Basketball started this week and Chris is even more excited about that. That's a great thing about this season is that there is always a game to watch to stay entertained while we're stuck inside. I'm always a MAVS fan and Chris is Celtics all the way! We might need to ban TV on the nights they play each other...it could get violent :)
I love when its chilly outside. Chilly enough to wear warm comfy clothes but not so cold you have to bundle up. I am loving pulling knee high boots on and cute jackets and sweaters. Winter clothes are the best because its cute to be comfortable too. I am loving planning outfits with scarves, jackets and hats. I also love baking and scrapbooking in the winter. Oh I LOVE even talking about it now. My favorite day is just staying inside and lighting a great smelling candle, turning on some music and baking goodies! YES I can't wait!
We are absolutely obsessed with this beauty...
It's called a Cocomotion and it is pretty much the best invention ever. You just put in the water and hot cocoa mix and push the button and it stirs and heats for you. I introduced Chris to it last month and now he loves making Hot Chocolate all the time. Its going to be like our morning coffee this season.
My mother in law Michelle sent us a cute Halloween card with Moolah so we could go out to eat to celebrate. We decided to try a new place since we love teriyaki places and there aren't any really good ones around here. We found a little Teriyaki place called Mo Doo #2 and we fell in love. It smells weird on the inside and there are random fish and christmas lights on the wall but the food was so good so that is prob where we are gonna become regulars for the winter.
We're also so excited to celebrate all the holidays and spend time with our families. Its great to be in Washington! There will be more stories and pics to come!

We missed THE LOTTS! It would have been even better with you there! But I took some videos just for you!

I seriously get a kick out of it now! I catch myself turning into an expert. Then I remember that the people on TV are out there doing something that they may not be good at or that makes them look stupid but I am the one sitting in my living room on the couch just watching them on TV. - Just sharing a thought.
So since I am a modeling expert (yeah right!) I helped teach my stepsister and her friends how to model then we did a little makeup and a photoshoot for her birthday. Chris and I were taking some pictures beforehand to practice...

Anyway, when I heard what this one is about I was a little skeptical because it sounded weird. And it was weird but it is one of those books that makes you think. It is just so fun to read. And it also has a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. I couldn't put it down! It has unique characters, a new idea and so many twists! I also felt every emotion you can feel. I think that is the best kind of book. I loved it!
I would give a little description of what its about but I am not a good writer and definitely not a book critic. I thought I would just share what I think about it. So if anyone has any more recommendations for me I would love to hear them! Then I will have something to read as soon as I read the sequel to "The Hunger Games".

I am cracking up right now! In case you were wondering..that is red lace just going right over her face. Good thing she has some great songs!
Now one of my favorite outfits of all time would be way out there too...if I wore it today. But at the time it would be gorgeous. This is one of the times I wish I lived in so I could wear the beautiful dresses. This is my fave! The hat is the best part. Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady:

Its the weirdest thing and I don't know what to do about it. One BIG regret i'm having right about now is seeing so many scary movies. I used to love watching them but now I never do...and its a good thing too. One night Scottee came to sleep here and I just fell right back to sleep once I said goodbye to Chris. Just right away! I didn't even stop to think if I was alone or anything. Even though all the same little noises were being made I am just comforted knowing i'm not the only one there. I'm going to try something new every night this week and see if anything works. So far I have decided to try listening to my IPOD, turning on the TV, counting sheep...you know...we'll see what works. If nothing does...I'm going to go to my Moms every morning (that always works!)
I don't want to leave this post thinking about being scared so i'll leave with some recent videos for a change. They are just random. Enjoy!
Dad's Birthday celebration!
Kailey started driving!
Friday, August 28, 2009
Kailey has been staying with us until school starts. We've been doing a lot of dancing and Chris and I are teaching her how to drive. She has her permit and she is getting really good. I can't believe our little girl is old enough to drive. We also got to babysit Murphy for 10 days. Murphy is the Hayes family dog. He is pretty much the best dog ever. It is so cute how he sits up and begs whenever anyone is eating. It was fun and now we have puppy fever. We want one.
