Puppy Love

October 30, 2014


Asking Ryan what he wanted to be for Halloween was not even a question.
Given his dog obsession, why not be Spot ( our fake dog's ) BFF??!

Well that's exactly what he did.


He tells Spot what to do these days.
"Eat it Spot!" he yells as he tries to stuff goldfish in his mouth.


Andddd for one of my favorite phrases - "Wuv You Spot" he says.


Best buddies.



Poor Ryan slipped and sprained his ankle earlier this week,
he can't walk or stand and is surviving by the phrase "Carry you" all day.
It's been quite the week of tears.

Saddest thing ever.
All day long he tells me "Leg Hurt Mommy" - even though it's his ankle.

Watching your two year old cry, frustrated that he can't run around is the worst feeling.

He is still asking to go "get candies" so of course, we will attempt the trick or treating.
Plus, I'm making my husband dress up with me HA.
If you knew my husband, he's like the biggest Halloween grinch HA so him dressing up shows that he really really REALLY loves me ;)

Happy Early Halloween!
I cannot wait to see every one's costumes, we aren't too creative when it comes to Halloween, so I like living through you guys and your creativeness.

I love Fall.
I love everything about it.
Unfortunately, "Fall" is a little warmer down in the South ha but mother nature has given us a few pretty days lately and we have taken full advantage.


The best kind of view.
And halloween pjs make it that much better.


We had our "pre construction meeting" a couple weeks ago and gave the "GO" on our slab of dirt.
We are so excited.
That paper I'm holding is the official, "home building GO".
Kind of a big deal.
There is no hole digging in Texas so they have just started framing!


Target Ball. You never fail us.
Who knows how many germs are on that thing but Ryan insists having to hug it every time.


Oh the dog obsession.
The dog at White House Black Market at the mall looks just like Ryan's fake dog "spot" at home.
We don't ever go IN that store with Ryan around because he will go tackle the dog thinking it's his stuffed one from home.
As soon as he sees it through the window though, he runs up to the window and kisses the window.


So let's pull out a "real life" phone picture. Because some days are far from perfect HA.

Ryan likes testing my patience lately.
Look closely at the floor.  Crayon EVERYWHERE.
Awesome, child.

Funny story.
So he had just woken up, I leave the room for a minute and come back to this wonderful treat to start the day off.

As soon as I see it, I call out his name in a serious tone, "RYAN SPENCER POWELL!"

Before I could even explain WHAT he did wrong and WHY it was wrong....

he yells "yayan pencer owell!"

HA Repeats everything I say.

It was all I could do to keep a straight face in this situation.

Now every time he goes to that corner of the kitchen floor where he did his "crayon act" he points at the floor and yells "Yayan Pencer Owell!"

One night Aaron and I cried we were laughing so hard.


Colorful food makes me so happy.
This recipe was amazing. Pinterest success.
I just added grilled chicken to it and it was wonderful!
AND SO EASY.
Southwest Chicken Salad with a Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette!


Because Red Mango cures any day.


Aaron came home to Ryan decked out in Texans gear playing catch with me.
Proudest husband / dad ever.
The first thing he said when he got out of the car was "My wife remembered there was a game tonight!?"
Proud moment in our marriage




And because I like us.
A lot.


Happiest Friday! XO
