A Little Confession

Everyone that knows me knows that I love children. LOOOVE them.

Now, I have a little confession...I might just a little bit be baby hungry.

Just the thought that I could have my own little child seems so exciting and special, yet crazy and nerve wracking!

No, I am not pregnant. And no, this does not mean that I will be having a child now or anytime soon. I still have a year and a half left of school and I know that if I had a kid now I would not be a good student. When I am a mom I want to be able to be a FULL TIME Mommy, not a half student/half mom. By being a nanny and thinking of having my mom home full time, I have seen how important a mom is in a child's life.

This just means I am a little baby hungry and have realized how wonderful that time will be when it comes. Someday.

I have found the solution to this little problem. TA DA. Our friend's children. For now, these little kiddos bring Matson and I some good laughs and fun times until we have our own someday!

So now is the time when I brag about all our friend's cute little kiddos.

Matson's best friend, M*'s sister has the cutest little children. We are jealous of Matson's friend M* for having the cutest little nephew and niece so sometimes we pretend to be their aunt and uncle.

Little T* wanted to come home with us in Matson's "cool, big truck."

I love this video of us and our friend's little boy C* from 2 or so months ago. We were playing peekaboo for a long time and he would get so scared. He is so fun to play with! Such a happy little boy.

Last Saturday we had C* and his parents and some other friends over to swim
and enjoy this nice warm weather here! He was too much fun.
He is adorable.
And congrats to our other friends B* and B* who just found out they are having a baby boy!

Wellp, see ya later peeps. I apologize for myself and my vomit of the mouth post about me being baby hungry which you probably do not even give an ant's bottom about. And just for the sake of not having an awkie (I never say that in real life but man, doesn't it feel good to type it?) conversation about me wanting babies but not wanting to have babies yet, you can just read this and we will just leave it at that.

1 Day Road Trip

On Sunday, April 1st, my family and I decided to head up to Twin Falls, Idaho to visit Grandma and Grandpa! Even N*, my little sister's boyfriend, came with us. So that was fun to get to know him better on the car ride. We played a lot of Name That Tune and trivia in the car, which was fun! But the stinkiest part was that there was no radio connection, which meant we could not listen to General Conference (I am now slowly watching it - 1 talk a night, which makes it even better because General Conference is lasting a long time and I am listening a lot better!).

My grandma and grandpa live in Portland, Oregon and we have not seen them since last May. They flew to Idaho to go to my grandma's sister's (or my great aunt's) 80th birthday party. We decided that since Twin Falls is only a couple hours away and Portland is a lot farther away, that we would go to Twin Falls to see them!

All of us with Grandma and Grandpa!
(Matson couldn't come because he had a huge Calculus Final
the next day that he needed to study and focus on).

Me with Grandpa and Grandma! I know this is dumb, but I felt so
dumb taking pictures by myself all day. I needed Matson there with me :(

It was such a great visit and I got to ask them a few more of my questions I have had for them that I have been asking them the last few times I have seen them. Every time we say goodbye to them I get so sad and I can't wait to see them again!

Before heading home, my Mom wanted us all to stop and see one of the famous things in Twin Falls called Shoshone Falls. It was impossible to get a good picture of myself there with the crazy wind. You'll get a kick out of my crazy hair shots. I was laughing so hard when I realized I did not get one good picture of me there.

Yep, not looking so good. EEK.

I'm Back.

I have said it time and time again, and I am saying it one last time now: this semester of school killed me. It was crazy. Like, seriously killer crazy. I was stressed and incredibly pissy worst word but the best emotion to describe me.

But if you have noticed I used words like "was" instead of "is" which all means that it is over. Hallelujah and praise the heavens.

Get excited readers (all 40 of you...) because Erica is back. The "happy, loving, and energetic Erica" not the "poopy almost every day breakdown Erica".

Wellp, give me a few days people and I will be back into the full swing of things and as Crush says (cue the beach bum voice), "leave em' to ha
tch, and then, coo coo cachoo, they find their way back to the big ol' blue."

...yeah that really had nothing to do with what I was saying, but kind of, I mean I just gotta coo coo cachoo out of my poopy school life and into my fun summery life.

Just gotta forget moments like these...

And create more moments like these...

until next time.
