Just thought I would share........

.........My new favorite pictures of the girls

It seems like I have to settle for individual pictures because Olivia and Rachel pretty much refuse to take a picture together. And it's not like they can't stand each other because actually they are pretty much each others partner in crime and best friend but either one smiles and the other is crying or grumpy or vice versa. Never a cute happy pic of both girls when i want one. So instead, on the rare occasion, I get amazing pictures of the girls and today was one of those times. It was nice outside, they were happy and my phone was cooperating lol. Hope you love them as much as I do!

I Really cannot believe how big they are getting. Seems like they can reach things today that they couldn't yesterday. Like I remember when Olivia could barely reach the door knob to close the door and now she can reach the light switch if she stands on her toes!

In other news, Our 4th of July was pretty relaxing. Chris worked on our neighbors tattoo and I hung out with the girls and then we went to this ball park called Big League Dreams where they have replicas of different famous stadiums set up. So we took our spot in the outfield of Fenway and picnicked and chased the girls around until it was dark and it was time for fireworks. They sat really well for the show and didn't cry once! Although I did think Olivia was about to when the finale startled her. But all in all they were pooped and we had a blast! (Sorry i have no decent pictures. I tried to take some of the girls during fireworks but they didn't turn out so great and the fireworks setting on my phone is weird so i got some odd shots of the fireworks and nothing good except for maybe the videos i took that i will have to upload later.

Also, Chris and I are on the hunt for a new place to live. Preferably something that is bigger and can fit more than 1 person in the kitchen at a time and has a backyard for the girls and the dogs and maybe even a craft/tattoo room if we were to get so lucky. We called and gave our 30 days notice today so I'm praying that something will pop up that doesn't cost 3x the rent to move in. Oi!

Well I'm going to go watch The Hobbit with Chris now. (yeah we are having a blast from the past moment) and do the rest of my laundry and maybe some dishes (ugh). Goodnight!

Songs by Emotion

So I started back up on Swap-Bot in hopes that it will get my creative juices flowing again. I decided to join this one called Songs by Emotion E-Swap. Since they put a stop to mix cd swaps *sigh* the alternative is to send a playlist to your partner(s) with the link to the video or music from the internet. Doing it this way ensures that there is no illegal pirating of music going on.

Anyways I thought the theme for this music swap was fun cuz it made u think about which song you like falls into the respective category. So I thought I'd share with you the list I chose to send to my partners. :D Enjoy!

Pumping, energy, can’t sit still: Black Eyed Peas – I got a feeling  
Drowning, heavy, sad: Evanescence – Going Under                       
Hope: Josh Groban – You are Loved                                             
Upbeat, cheery, good day: The Beatles – Good Day Sunshine        
Raging, vent: Five Finger Death Punch – Ashes                             
Numbing, empty/depressed: Linkin Park – Numb                           
Slinky, dark, dirty: Nine Inch Nails – Closer                                   
Soothing, relaxation: George Winston – Blossom/Meadow              
Vast, alive, blissful, beautiful world: U2 – Beautiful Day                   
Love (any aspect): Steel Magnolia – Keep on Lovin’ You
