Can a two-year-old break her nose?
Well Olivia is trying to find out!
On Tuesday (Ryleigh's birthday) I was making Fudgy Mint Brownies for her classroom  birthday dessert when I heard Olivia calling my name from the other room (she was watching Dora the Explorer). I answered he with the usual "what-ie") Then she yelled it a little louder, so I went to see what she was getting into.
I walked into the room - I was greeted with a mess.
 A bloody mess. Literally - blood. everywhere.
I will spare you the details but seriously - everywhere.
After cleaning her up I held her for a long time but she started swelling up instantly so I started to get worried. I felt her nose for any hard bumps or abnormal stuff but I could only feel swelling (she had a grown mans nose at this point!) so after Dan got home we took her into the doctor. He said he didn't think it was broken but just to be sure he ordered an x-ray. (broken noses on cool on boys but not so cute on little girls - ya know!)
Olivia did really really good for her x-ray. She has a little upset of course but she held still and we were able to get pretty good clear images of her face. No broken bones thankfully! Just a whole lotta swelling and bruising!
Personally I think she looks like Neytiri (the girl on Avatar) now!

Today Ryleigh turns 12.
whoa nellie
I am not ready for this! I am not ready! Wait!!

Unfortunately for me ~ she IS ready. She is so excited to turn twelve and go to young womens and wear mascara and go to junior high next year. And honestly, I think I know deep down that she is ready.
Ryleigh is absolutely amazing! She is everything I would have ever dreamed her to be at this age (plus some!). She is an amazingly hard worker. She loves school, and loves to succeed in school. She is trustworthy and honest but knows how to have fun a be a big goofball. She is such a wonderful young lady and I am grateful for her more and more everyday!
I love you Ryleigh Bug
Happy Birthday!

Vegas Baby!


Last week I had so much fun in LAS VEGAS! Since Aubrey and I are now a part of BellaSoles we were invited to go to the WSA Shoe Convention that is held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Unfortunately Aubrey started her new job that week and was unable to get away so I went with Jonelle - she is the only other BellaSoles Rep here in Arizona.


It was absolutely crazy! I have never seen so many shoes in my entire LIFE! It was awesome - plus we get a sneak peek at the new upcoming styles for summer. We had a blast picking out HUNDREDS of different shoes in HUNDREDS of different colors. We had to give our input on Arizona styles because apparently Utah is behind in fashion about a year (even the vendors laughed about Utah). SO FUN! I am so excited to do it again in August!
Oh... and I met Doctor Turk!
