We accept the love we think we deserve.

Lazy Sunday.

Today is such a nice day! It's finally starting to feel like Spring. Today so far has been pretty lazy. Cj is still in his pajama's. I walked to Smith's and got some groceries for tonight, then I came home and cleaned the house like a crazy lady. 


My lap top died this week, it was very slow and everyone hated it, but I was sad. Friday Cj and I went to Costco and got a new lap top! It's really nice, and has a build in Web Camera woot woot. 


Nothing has really been going on this week. Just working and hanging out. My sister Haley came into work yesterday and she has strep throat :( and then I swabbed my mom's throat, and she has strep throat. I had to give them both shots, no fun. Luckily my strep test came back negative! 


Olive was sitting on the couch like this yesterday, Cj and I were cracking up.




She's my little hoodrat.





I have been missing my niece lately, isn't she so cute?



I got her that adorable bib, I couldn't help it. Whenever we go to the store I go through the baby stuff and look for things for Molly.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend! <3

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff at Work!

Today was for sure a Monday, busy, busy. Lately I've been reading a book called "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff at Work" and it has helped me so much! It has helped me to stay focused on the patients, when I get frustrated just walk away and take a deep breath. Today was hectic and some people were a little off and not working as a team, which can be really frustrating when we all need to work together! But I did what I was supposed to and tried to "NSTSSAW" (Not sweat the small stuff at work).


You know sometimes it can be really hard to have a smile on your face all the time and try to act like everything is ok, when it's not. Let's just say I've cried a lot this week. At work I was trying my hardest to be me, be happy and be kind. Even if I was sad, or frustrated with the people that I work with, I'm trying really hard. While I was closing the blinds in the Doctor's office and Dr. Keith was in there just finished up for the night and he says, "Do you know what Char? A patient told me that you were one of the nicest people and that they were grateful for your kindness." And after he told me that, it made everything feel ok. He always tells me things I need to hear at the exact moment I need to hear it. Like if I feel like i'm having a bad hair day he ALWAYS tells me "Char, your hair sure looks pretty today." He is one of the greatest people on earth.


Sorry for me venting tonight, I think it's good to talk about and get it off my chest. I'm so thankful for my family, and for Cj. Even when things are rough at times, we're always there for one another.

High School Sweethearts


Cj and I are high school sweethearts. We started dating when he was 17 and I was 16. We've been dating for 6 1/2 years and have been married for almost 6 months! Cj is my husband, my best friend, my everything. We were lucky to find each other so early. Here are some pictures of us when we were young.
















We have gone through a lot together, good and bad, but it has only helped our relationship grow stronger. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend! <3

I'm in a glass case of emotions!

This week has been hectic. Our family is going through a struggle right now. I know over time it will get better, but it's going to take time. I'm doing a lot better as the week has gone by, thank goodness for my close friends and my family who have been there for me and my family.


Anyways, I'm off work till Monday! I have no plans so far just chilling I guess. Work has been busy, busy. Yesterday was crazy. We just had some crazy, loud kids that their parents didn't care if they were screaming in the office, or running down the halls. I went out to the lobby and they're just running around, there were sucker sticks all over the floor and wrappers. They also asked if we could change the movie from Curious George to Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer... REALLY? And the mom was just sitting on the couch reading a magazine.. Oh well.


Then I took this family back it was 2 little boys and their little sister. I weighed her and she was 17 lbs. And the little boy looked at me and was like "17 pounds and it punched me in the eyeball!" and his little brother starts cracking up! I had no idea what that meant but I thought it was funny. Kids can be funny, I love working around them almost everyday!


Olive finally got groomed. I had her shaved b/c she had dreds all over, and it hurt her when I tried to brush her out. I think she looks so cute though!




I love her 2 little bows she has in her hair! Now, she just has 1 bow in her hair, of course. She was really mad at me when I picked her up, but I think she has finally forgiven me.


Here are my 2 babies. Silly kids.

When we got home today Olive's friend Miyagi was outside. She was being so funny with him I made a video of them... playing?? Olive was acting like a brat so I don't know if you call it playing.


Anyways I hope everyone is having a great Friday so far! And just know as we go day by day things will get better. :)

Cleaning Friday.

Sometimes I get into these weird crazy cleaning moods. I swept, mopped and vacuumed the house. Then I decided Olive needed a bath, so I gave her a bath.
Haha she looks like a completely different dog when she's wet. She was trying to jump out of the bath tub when I was shampooing her. Stinker.
This is her after she has dried off. She's so fluffy and cute after she's all dry. 


Tonight Cj and I went to Dr. Matt's house to watch his kids for him while him and his wife went on a date. They have 3 adorable kids. They're youngest is one and she's so cute! When I get baby hungry I go and watch her. Watching kids is a lot of work. Being a mom is going to be a lot of work, but I know it will be well worth it. But that's not going to happen for at least 3 years.


Now we're just at home watching the jazz game. Story of my life.

Missing San Fransisco

For our honeymoon we went to San Fransisco. It was Cj's first time being there, and he loved it!
My cousin Jen lives in SF and let us stay at her little studio while we were there. The cool thing was she was able to take us out and show us all the cool stuff there.




One day Cj and I went on a little boat and went under the golden gate bridge and around Alcatraz. It was awesome!!





It was FREEZING! That day but was still really cool.



My cousin Jena and her BF came to visit us in SF and stay the night.

To end our trip we stopped at my cousin Karinne's house for the night and hung out with my cousins.



Oh and we can't forget Jena's little baby girl Attie!
