Trading Places..

So, my photo challenge may not be following a daily basis like I would like it to, but atleast Im consistent, right?

Todays challenge--
Someone you would like to trade places with for a day

This particular one did not require much thought from me, at all..I have always known for a while that I would like to trade places with these people and think about it often. :)
I would love to be able to sleep all day, have all my meals prepared for me, and be massaged all day long!



What a terrible life they have, huh?!

Photo Day #5

I have slacked a little on the photo challenge, but at least I havent given up completely...Right?
Todays photo is "A Picture of your favorite Memory"

I chose to share a photo of my late granddad with you today. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of him (literally) and I think that ANY and ALL memories I have of him are my favorites.
For those of you that do not know me on a personal level, I grew up across the street from my grandparents for nearly 16 years, then only lived about 5 minutes away after that.
The picture below is a great one to sum up the kind of person that my granddad was. A respectable man, full of personality and cheer always!
This particular one was taken on his birthday...Which ironically he shares with my younger sister and my cousins son. Now, we get to celebrate Cooper's birthday one day before now too!!

Here's to the Greatest Man I have ever known!

Scrabble Wall Art

Wow! I completely LOVE this! What a cute idea!!
I ran across this on a blog that I follow

How Cute?! I think this is definitely going to be added to my "to do" list!
Check out all of the other amazingly cool and cute things that she has to share!!

Blog Makeover

I am bound and determined to get better at this blogging thing! With the new little one it has been difficult but I will do it..gosh darnit!
Instead of trying to post daily updates on things that have been going on, I am just going to post as I feel. If I find things I like and want to share, If I have an interesting story or experience to share, etc...

Obvisouly I have changed the name and look to my blog. I have recently found a new guilty pleasure of the Real Housewive series on Bravo ( Why, I do not know!)
As much as I love the shows (specifically OC and Beverly Hills) I seem to find myself resenting them! I do not have a nanny or 2 or 3, I dont drive a Bentley, and I absolutely do NOT have on FULL Makeup at all hours of the day and night!
Is there really anything "Real" about these housewives??

So, my mission is to share the things that a "real, genuine" housewife does and experiences!
Will you join me?!

Photo Challenge Day #4---Something that you wish you could forget.

This particular one poses an issue for me...I find that there are plenty of things that I wish I could have done differently, but nothing that I seem to want to forget. I believe that I am a product of my experiences,beliefs,actions and reactions. I absolutely do not agree with everything I have said,done or believed but I do feel that at this point in my life there was a reason for my stupidity or ignorance. I have tried my best to accept my defeats and downfalls and own up to my own actions.
I firmly believe that everything happends for a reason and without experiences speed bumps in our life we would not become who we are. I attempt to live my life without regret and if I dwell on things I would like to forget, then I feel I would never be able to fully learn from them.

Team CoCo

Todays photo challenge is a photo of the cast from your favorite show...Well, I have a good many shows that I like to follow..But I think that my favorite shows (yes, there is a tie) would have to be Glee and Conan!

Photo Challenge Day #2

A picture of a person you used to be close with....

Honestly, this friendship goes so far back it would be difficult to try and put it into perspective. In addition, this friendship has also endure countless hardships and rollercoaster rides....It is truly one that I have always held near and dear to my heart...But unfortunately...We have drifted apart it seems.

Im Back!!

Wow, So I noticed that I had blogged since October...Yikes!!
Obviously...A lot has been going on...Mainly, Cooper making his big debut (a whole month early)! But I will get more on that later. Since I am so far behind, I am going to start back with something that is short and sweet and that wont take me too long to complete! A 30 Day Photo Challenge! As I find time (which is very sparingly) I will update everyone on Cooper's decision to come early, the up's and downs's we have had with him being a preemie, and of course all of the milestones that we have and continue to reach being new parents!!

But for now, since I am sure he will be waking up from his nap VERY shortly I will leave with the Photo Challenge for day #1.
