I have noticed that lately I haven't been taking pictures with anything except instagram and my i-phone
the quality isn't as great but it has been nice not having my giant 
camera on me at all times like I used to. As cheesy as it may sound I feel my life is more candid 
and I catch such precious moments 
like these.
Ugh these boys melt my heart.

My baby brother Carson, is leaving the MTC in provo and headed for Texas this week!
I feel bad because I have been a bad sister and haven't written him yet, I know that it is
no excuse, but because we already lived so far away from him I still just keep thinking that
he is still in Cedar City, Utah living at home and being the star quarterback... 
Man I miss my family
This 1800 miles away stuff is getting to me! 

This cheesy smile is to die for! Luke knows how to go to my camera on my phone and 
take self pics? Is it just me or is that crazy? 
Look at those giant toofers.

please stay around forever because I 

No I still haven't cleaned my mirror, don't judge.

Guess who is going on a girls trip to
Chicago tomorrow?
ME!! I am meeting some of my favorites from 
Vegas and New York
and we are staying at this swanky little number
"The Allerton" I am pretty excited and I haven't been on a girls trip since I 
have had the boys...  it is only going to be 24 hours for me, but none the less
I can't wait!!

weekend randomness and a new challenge

I was thinking I needed to do another challenge of some sort, I was talking to one of my besties Terrah and she suggested to do a food challenge, with spring coming I thought if would be a good idea to share some of my healthy eats and treats...

Bread Costco.. so yummy
avocados, mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach, 2 garlic cloves, spinach
some chicken pieces from a rotisseree.
I don't have a panini press, I just use my george foreman grill.

A little loose fishtail braid on my hair

We joined the YMCA and I also have been going to Hot Yoga again... oooo it feels good! 

 Sweet kisses from this baby boy! 

 The weather has been so crazy in Grand Rapids, we get snow on the weekends and 
then it's warm-ish durning the week. This view is from the window of my new work station.
(I forgot to mention I started a new job on the weekends)
yay for working in Hair Salons

check out this beauty I found at a thrift store here in town! 
1950's clock radio it works and looks adorable
in the boys room!! 
Happy Sunday

I love this guy...
 I usually load the blog with pictures of my kids, activities we have been up to, 
 "things" I want or that I have been dreaming about, and sometimes material things 
that don't really matter.
(All fun though)
I realized I don't talk about my lover boy as much as I should. 

At the end of the day I have a wonderful husband who loves me to the moon and back 
and that loves his two boys more than anything.
I am a lucky girl and I don't need anything else. 

These pictures made me laugh and reminded me of Alex studying his brains out 
for Law School.. I am so proud of him for working so hard.

Sorry for the Mushy stuff I need to get it out once in a while!

 I swear life gets crazier as the days go by, does anyone else feel like that? This last week has been tough, but you can't help but laugh after the day is over {or in my case cry sometimes}
  • Noah's new favorite saying is "Mom you are so weird today" I guess better than him saying damn and sh*t
  • He told me for the first time that he loves Daddy and not Mommy ... tears
  • I left for 5 seconds and Luke had eaten his weight in dog food.
  • Noah creeps into our bed at night and he snores just as loud as his papa which = no sleep
  • I finally found the reason for the stench in the boys room, a sippy cup of milk was inbetween the liner of their toy box... It was the worst smell ever and got all over their stuffed animals, which I just ended up throwing out.
  • I finally shaved my legs per request of Alex, poor Alex
  • Luke wont say Mom, but he says Alyex
  • Luke found his shadow and it is sooo funny watching him chase it! 
  • I am starting spring cleaning before the producer of "Hoarders" calls.
  • Right after Noah starts to feel better Luke has a double ear infection, but at least when these babes are sick I get extra snuggles from them..  

 Snuggles with my sick boys

 Shadow man

Luke's new favorite hiding spot, the oven.

 Very well possibly my most favorite picture ever, this was taken in our back yard and makes me so excited for it to get warm to go out there and play more.

Day 6 on my hair... 
this was taken at 5 am after being up all night with sick boys..

Dont you love how a box is always the kids favorite toy!! 
Thanks again Costco!

Look at this picture of Alex and Noah side by side.. They really are twins... 
Noah's face is a little more round like mine, but other than that they are
seriously twinsies!! 

My first operation hoarders project is complete.. 
This is really embarrassing to post.

 I love Noah's face in this picture.. 

What do you think I clean my mirror? 
Check out those handprints..
Share with me some of your seriously moments so I know 
I am not the only crazy one!!

Spring Dreams

Guys, I am in serious need of alot , ok two things. 
Spring and Shopping for spring..
I am kind of wishing I was still living in Las Vegas, because the month of March 
starts to get really warm and beautiful. 
I have been doing my online window shopping, I call it that because I put things in the
shopping cart or pin them and then I never really buy them, but I dream that I do.
Here are some of the loves I am been eyeing....
Bright pants!! Have you done it yet?
I have red ones, but I  am thinking about green or pink next..



 Don't worry of course my little stylish three year old already has the pants I want!! 
Thank you baby gap!! 

Happy Monday!!

Happy Valentine's Day

This morning I woke up to the smell of pancakes. 
My lover Alex has a breakfast making hobby! Because Valentines day is so close to our anniversary we usually don't go all out, just try and do sweet things like a cute card, breakfast or a favorite treat! 
Any excuse to be extra sweet is ok in my book. 
I hope you all have a great day! 
All if these pictures were taken with my iPhone 
and filtered through Instagram if you have it 
lets be followers and not leaders...

I think Pancakes should always be in the shape of HEARTS..

These were the Valentines I made for Noah's pre-school and his neighborhood friends... 
They were super easy and I am thinking I will do this every year!

Wedding Day part 1

Alex and I just celebrated our 4 year anniversary! It is pretty amazing how time flies by, I really am the luckiest girl in the world! For us it was love at first sight, or at least lust, because I thought he was pretty hot! 
Because I am a newbie blogger I never got to do a wedding post. I actually loved my wedding pictures so much so I think it is time to do one! I might have to break it down into 2 posts because there are so many photos!

Some fun facts, my brides maids all had black lace fans and my parasol that I got from Venice, Italy
my 3 string pearl necklace I had custom made in Florence, Italy

Happiest day of my life!!
I love you Alex Scherf
More pictures to come......
