5 little confessions

it's been a while since i did a 5 little confessions post. there has been one in the works for a while, but i just can't seem to get it together.

1. this is less of a confession and more of a tip. i'm pretty sure it's public knowledge that i hate washing my hair. i never do it. it's a little gross thanks to suave dry shampoo. seriously, try it. you're welcome

2. i've eaten at cafe rio 4 times in the past 2 1/2 weeks. i know. it's bad.

3. i jumped in the shower to rinse off after running before the pool yesterday planning to take a real shower later. that real shower didn't happen until 11:30 pm after shopping for 5 hours and of course running into someone i know. how embarrasing!

4. my to do list for home has exploded to 5 post it notes. every morning i swear to myself i am going to get some of this taken care of, and every night it gets later and later. i'm happy to report i have checked off a couple things today, but seriously, I need to get a grip.

5. i had serious ADD at church today. i'm not even kidding. i could not focus for even one second. i have no idea what my problem is these days.

ok people. let's hear it. what are your confessions?

kyler pics

remember the post about baby kyler when i promised to post more of the pictures i took??? i'm finally getting around to posting.

i bought a new camera 2 days before he was born so i really still have no idea how to use it. trying to take pictures of 3 kids is a bit of a challenge. kyler was basically asleep the whole week i was there except when we tried taking his pictures. he wouldn't stay asleep for anything. we luckily got a few cute ones.

my week in Vegas

I spent the past week in Vegas. I went down to help with new baby Kyler.

i met up with my friend lauri and her daughter at the children's museum

even though it was hot as blazes we went to the park 3x 

i held the little babe as much as possible

i also watched as much olympics as possible

it was such a great week. can't wait to go back.

Rocky Mountain Raceway

I'm getting good use of the pass of all passes this summer. When plans to go to 7 peaks didn't work out Michelle and Andrew, Nettie and JP, Tina, and I went to the raceway. I had pretty low expectations, but it was actually really entertaining. I might even go back.

I have a new nephew. Chelsea and Jeff had baby Kyler last Sunday. Poor baby #3 is already not getting as many pictures, but I have been instagramming the little thing. He's the cutest little thing, and I just love newborns.

do these kids all look the same or what? definitely siblings.

karlee loves holding kyler

he loves the binky and if you don't give it to him, he finds his thumb. this was day #2 of life

all the kids at the hospital

more baby pics

going home from the hospital. so little in the carseat

i barely took any pics with the kid even though i got to hold him lots

i finally bought a new camera (hallelujah) and took some baby pics. i will post them soon. some turned out pretty cute.
