Day 7

Your dream wedding
My wedding was perfect.
The only other dream wedding I have is the day I get sealed.
I imagine it looking a little like this...



Gratitude with Attitude

In honor of Thanksgiving, I always write, blog, think, say, etc.. what I'm grateful for! Sorry for the belated gratitude, but it is gratitude nonetheless! 
I'm THANKFUL for...
The Gospel #1!
Temples. We're going there someday.
Our incredible ward and awesome Bishop!
Coca-Cola <3
My HUGE down blanket
Christmas lights
Amazing mommas! (Shout out! Cozette, Ann, Beth, and of course MY mom)
The ability to have babies.
WIC. They are saving our lives right now.
Snow, for the first time ever ever..
Our laptop!
Online school. It is the best way to reach for the stars and still be a mommy.
Music. It is so important to me!
Facebook. Silly, but not really that silly. 
I keep in touch with friends I never would any other way!
A car that runs.
Pandora! The holiday stations make my day.
Freedom to write whatever the hell I want on this nonsense blog! I <3 my country!
Any man or woman who is or ever has served our country. We are forever in your debt.
Past heartbreaks, they led me to my sweetheart.

And most importantly...
I'm thankful for my family, both my old family and my new family I am blessed to call my own through Mike. We are so blessed to have people who love us and look after us.

I'm thankful for my parents, who are taking us in at this crucial time in our lives. 
If it weren't for them, who knows where we would be.. Because of them, we can go to school. Mike can work with his dad and uncle, which he loves! I can be a stay-at-home mom. We can save for a house when we are out of school. 
Thank you Mom and Jon, we love you.

I'm thankful for my husband, Mike. 
He is the cheese to my macaroni. Ok I stole that.. He is the passion that drives me to be a better person. I feel like the sexiest, most ambitious and driven woman alive when he's around. He has a gift because heaven knows I wouldn't think that if it weren't for him! I am thankful to him for choosing me.

We got our Christmas present early this year and it is so much better than a fancy car or big house or ipod... We have Milo. 
Words cannot express how grateful I am for Milo.
He is sunshine and rainbows all bundled up in a rocket ship blanket.
Every day Mike and I get to enjoy this little sweetheart, we are grateful.

I'm thankful for people who care about reading my blog! :)
XOXO, Alecia

Mommy Blogs!

I so wish I was creative or motivated enough to have my own cute crafty blog where I show the world how awesome I am at being a mom AND a sewer, crafter, scrapbooker, whatever...

Sorry to disappoint but I'm not making any plans to start.
However I wanna give a huge shout out to the mommy blogs that totally rock!

A blog for busy mamas who want to still be crafty.. aka me!
One of the most creative chicas ever! I don't know if she's a mommy blog but who cares she's amazing!
Creative ideas for romance on a budget! Love it!
This is probably my fave! These mamas come up with creative ways to date your hubby and keep the spark alive! From reliving your senior prom to ultra romantic anniversary dates to acting like children at the playground.. this is the best way to date your hubby!
For the mommys that have to wait for nap time to do fun stuff.. some creative ideas for kids and the house!

I love following fun blogs like this. Hope you follow these guys too, you won't regret it!!


I got a new job!

It's full time, all the time.
Its mornings, afternoons, evenings and graveyards.
It has no insurance coverage.
BUT the pay is priceless.. Hugs, Kisses, Smiles and Sighs
I'm a full time mommy, and my job is better than yours ;]

Milo went to the doctor's office today and he weighs 7 pounds 7 ounces!
What a big boy!
