The Big 2-5

My birthday was a couple days ago and I turned 25! I don't know if that's a hard birthday for some, but it was just like any other for me. Josh made me breakfast in bed, which was nice. (next time I'll let him know that its also nice to sleep in on your birthday, he brought me breakfast before Paisley was even awake!) But it was totally appreciated!
After we all got ready for the day we headed out to get some lunch, I wanted Texas Road House. Note to self, they don't open till 4 in the afternoon, and I was hungry for lunch! So instead we went to Apple Bee's. I hadn't been there in months. After the waitress bringing something I didn't order and me spilling my water on Josh's pants, I finally got my steak and shrimp. It was delicious and only 550 calories! :)
After lunch I laid Paisley down for her nap and told Josh peace out. I went to a couple stores and got a few things. It was so nice to shop by myself and not have to chase Paisley around or bribe her with candy.
I told Josh all I really wanted was some new polishes for my nails, pretty simple I thought, so I just stopped by Sally's and picked those up while I was out.
After that we just relaxed at home. Paisley and I watched our usual tv and enjoyed some nice American Idol. I didn't know what to think about the new judges, but I love them. They are so different and its nice to have a change. It always help to have some people audition who think they can sing but really can't!
I enjoyed my Birthday and can't wait to see what this year brings.

I guess I'm officially part of the quarter of a century club, thanks Big Brother!

How do you Brush Your Teeth?

Paisley really likes to look at herself in the mirror. She likes to watch herself make faces and even cry. So it wouldn't be any different when it comes to cleaning those pearly whites of hers.



Up close and personal is the only way to go for this girl.

Jonah and the Whale

Paisley loves to read the story of Jonah and the Whale.
For Christmas she got the Veggie Tales Jonah story from my Sister and she got these cute little dolls that she plays with in the bath from my Mom.
If I ask her why the fish ate Jonah, she'll tell me "because he didn't listen."


She is so funny...I could probably use this story about obedience to my benefit. :)

A New Book

A few weeks before Christmas Paisley and I were checking out the Deseret Book Store. Paisley loves to go and read through a ton of books (its right behind the Children's museum, so we stop in every once in a while). While we were there I started reading a few and found a really cute one that I ended up getting her for Christmas. It reminded me of our Mother-Daughter relationship so I picked it up.
Its pretty cute and very sweet.

Its called "You are My I Love You"
By Maryann Cusimano Love & Satomi Ichikawa

I am your Parent
You are my child.
I am your quite place;
you are my wild.

I am your calm face;
you are my giggle.
I am your wait;
you are my wiggle.

I am your carriage ride;
you are my Queen.
I am your push;
you are my swing.

I am your audience;
you are my clown.
I am your London Bridge;
you are my falling down.

I am your carrot sticks;
you are my licorice.
I am your dandelion;
you are my first wish.

I am your water wings;
you are my deep.
I am your open arms;
you are my running leap.

I am your way home;
you are my new path.
I am your dry towel;
you are my wet bath.

I am your dinner;
you are my chocolate cake.
I am your bedtime;
you are my wide awake.

I am your finish line;
you are my race.
I am your praying hands;
you are my saying grace.

I am your favorite book;
you are my new lines.
I am your night-light;
you are my starshine.

I am your lullaby; you are my peekaboo.
I am your goodnight kiss;
you are my

I Love You.
