Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday Button
This picture is only a year old but I love it. We were taking the ferry from Bremerton back to Seattle after a scenic drive over there with my pop's & step mom. We are on the boat here, it was cold & rainy but Shiloh was just loving it.

Friday Fives

Just Me and My Life

1. If you could be on a show(talk show, game show...) which one would you pick?

I also LOVE Live with Regis & Kelly & would love to be on their show:

2. What was your first job?

I was a telemarketer for a travel agency.. yes I was the annoying personal calling going "Congratulations you just won a 5 night stay at our Bahamas resort" yep that was me in 9th & 10th grade.. it was good money so whatev..

3. What's one of your guilty pleasure?

I am not much of a sweet tooth but since I have this bean in my belly I have fallen in love with Chocolate Covered Pretzel's OMG so good let me tell ya!

Okay for this I have more then one so another huge guilty pleasure of mine are my ABC Soaps.. I have watched them since middle school religiously!!

4. Would you ever vacation alone?

I guess it would depend on where too. I am not one to do stuff out in public alone.. I still feel nervous going to eat out even now with Shiloh {I know weird} but I am getting ready to go to California for my Best Friends Wedding next month without my hubby or Shiloh. This will be a first for me since I have been married. I always travel with Stephen or Shiloh.. I am nervous but I can't wait!!!

5. Democrat, Republican, or Independent..or maybe even Green Party (whatever that is)?

I am what I call a private party.. I have learned that talking politics can ruin relationships so I keep my political views private ;-)

So I have been doing questions of the day on my Facebook page & most my friends & family seem to enjoy so I thought I would try it out on here & see if there is any success.

Everyday {or everyday that I am able} I am going to have a new question of the day. I will post it & then I want you to leave a comment with your answer. Its fun to see everyone's different answers & or opinions. At the end of each day I will then leave my answer.. I think its a fun way of getting to know other people & there likes & dislikes or to hear different ideas on things :-)

Question of the Day #1:
If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be?

Top 2 Tuesday

Top 2 Favorite perfumes/colognes/scents

1. Perfume would have to be Juicy Couture {Any of them}

2. My favorite cologne is Acaqua Di Gio

To be honest there are lots of wonderful fragrances that I love but these are just the two off the top of my head.

Oh & I Love Love Love Ralph Lauren Blue.. hehe

BIG 3 0 Today!

Stephen's is 30
So I love my hubby he is one of the most amazing men I have ever met. Today he turns 30. I thought that it was only appropriate to list 30 things as to why I love him so much & why I am so blessed to be his Wifey❤
  1. He never stopped chasing me or trying to win my heart.. even though I ran like hell.. he never gave up.. & I am so glad I gave in.
  2. My Parents LOVE him... sometimes I think more then me {J/K}
  3. Together we made Two Miracles one being our Princess Shiloh & the second being our Bean that is still incubating in my belly.
  4. He still really HOT & looks really Young for 30.
  5. One of the hardest working & most dedicated men I know.. has been at his job for 14 years & still loves what he does.. & still works 12 to 14 hour days.
  6. Can say goodnight & before he is done with his sentence he is already snoring.
  7. He has blessed me with amazing in-laws & extended family!
  8. Loves me even more after 2 pregnancies {I am not the most pleasant person while prego}
  9. I love that he loves to watch ton's of food channels & tells me all the time he wants to be a Chef but the only thing he cooks me is BBQ & Hamburger Helper.. no one makes it better :-)
  10. Would kiss me every second if I would let him.. he is a lover that is for sure.
  11. Sings Karaoke to me while drunk in front of all our friends & strangers while out.. usually It's Your Love or Everything I Do I Do For You & has NO SHAME in doing so.
  12. One of the nicest most kindhearted people you will EVER meet I can guarantee that!
  13. Has brought so many amazing new friends into my life.
  14. Is always there for his siblings.

  19. Still sleeps in the same bed as his brother when I kick him out of the one we are sharing at his parents LOL & is secure with his manhood.
  20. Has good taste in music.
  21. Gave up his gas guzzling truck to drive a simple sedan.. just to save money for his family.
  22. LOVES his solitaire & will stay up all night playing.
  23. Will clean the bathrooms for me while I am pregnant because he is concerned that the chemical's are too strong for me or baby.
  24. Will watch girly movies including Twilight & the Bachelorette with me.. but not scary ones.. he has a big belief in the after life.
  25. I don't think there is another man that I have ever met that can fall asleep in mid conversation & I ask him "Babe are you asleep & he will tell me "No, I am just resting my eyes" Blahahah.. then start snoring in mid sentence.. never wants to disappoint me.
  26. Is very sensitive.. but refuses to ever cry in front of me.. he has only cried once & that is when we said good-bye to Baxter.. our dog.
  27. The most loving father & husband.
  28. Works his butt off so I can stay at home.
  29. Manages to tell me at least once a day how lucky he is to have me in his life.. but in reality I am the lucky one.
  30. He is truly my Best Friend & I honestly feel like the luckiest female alive to have been blessed with such a good, loyal, loving man.. who never takes our love or marriage for granted!!!

Friday Fives

Just Me and My Life

Here are my Friday Fives..  {Wish List}
oh & I may have more then one answer for each wish list item oops!

1.  Here in Washington A/C is uncommon {I know its so crazy to me too} so I would love for our next place weather it be a rental or us buying to have A/C.. no it MUST have A/C I can't stand being hot!

2. I would love to be physically fit!! So I would love to have Jillian Michael's come visit us for a week & get us in shape!! So that I can have her body & Steven can have Taylor Lautner's body hehe.. it could happen!

3. I love my Edge but in all honesty I know that I am going to need more room once this new baby arrives. It just does not have a ton of trunk space.. I mean it has decent trunk space but not enough for two kids two & under & all our stuff. Plus I think having a third row would be nice for out of town guest so that we don't have to take 2 cars. So I wouldn't mind any of these 3 vehicles.

Ford Flex

Ford Expedition

Toyota Sequoia
But if Stephen gets a truck then I am getting a car.. I don't want 2 gas guzzlers!!

So I would be just as happy with a Passat Wagon.. I love my German Cars!

4. I really want to take Shiloh to Disney World & have the whole Disney experience. I mean we have taken her to Animal kingdom & Epcot but I want to stay at a fancy hotel for a few nights & go to Disney World.. let her get her hair done up like a princess & just have all the magic.

5. My last thing my wish list would be to go on a Honey Moon with my Hubby. We never had one so  I would love to get away & go somewhere just the two of us to relax & enjoy each other without worrying about my babies. So I would take a ticket to any of these locations!!!

St. Lucia


Sandal's Jamaica

or even a Cruise in the Caribbean would be n nice :-)

Mama I Running

So today we went to the Tacoma Zoo with my girlfriend Jessica & her daughter Olivia & new baby Elan. Shiloh loves to be with Olivia.. they are a week apart & just have so much fun laughing together & playing. I forgot my camera at home {I blame it on the pregnancy brain} so I didn't take many pictures but I did get them laughing & running together which I think is the cutest.

As A Mom..

{photo taken by: Abbi Everest of Shiloh March of 2009}
As a mom I often find myself watching my daughter run so carefree, happy & with no worry. At those moments I pray for her... & I pray she will always continue to light up a room & not have the weight of the world on her shoulders.

As a mom I pray that my children will not have to know the fear of hurt so deep that nothing makes it better.. I pray that I can always protect them from all harm.

As a mom I pray that my children will always have faith in the good & not let the bad or negative take control.. I pray that I can always help them find the positive & let them know they are never alone.

As a mom I pray that my children treat others kindly & that they make sure to follow their hearts even if someone tries to tell them they are wrong or tries to break them.. I pray that I can always be their strength when they have none left.

As a mom I pray that my children never judge or hate.. I pray that I can always instill love & acceptance in their hearts.

As a mom I pray that my children will know & learn that drugs & addiction kill & lead to a hard struggle in life.. I pray that I can teach them wrong from right & give them the strength & confidence to say no.

As a mom I pray that my children love & are loved in return.. I pray that my husband & I can show them how wonderful being in love is & how amazing it is to have someone to share your life with.

As a mom I pray that my children will continue to shine bright, always have a loving heart, set goals & make decisions that will only be for the better.. I pray that I can teach them all the good & protect them from all the bad.

As a mom I pray my kids know that I vow to Always Protect Them no matter the situation, no matter the money, no matter the time, no matter their age.. as their mother I made that my life duty the day they were conceived.. they will always be my babies.

As a mother my children are my life, my everything & I pray & I pray.. & I know that even though I want to protect them from EVERYTHING somethings I can not control.. but I still continue to pray & protect & I will do so as long as I am a mother.

-As a mother I am over protective, paranoid & I trust no one.. its sad.. but that is the world we live in these days.. & if that is what it takes to keep my children safe.. I will go to the ends of the earth to do just that. Some don't agree with my ways & rules.. but these are my children.. & my love for them is deeper with every moment.. & I know I am doing what is best for them.

What do you pray for when it comes to your loved ones?

~This was written by me {Melissa Flores} with nothing but love.

Kids Room Ideas

So we are going to have Shiloh & the new baby share a room for now. I want to do something bright & fun. Shiloh's room was so cute but it was light & very girly which I wanted.. but with this one I want bright colors & I want fun stuff on the walls like bubbles or circles or a argyle pattern on one wall or something. I know that painting is not an option at the moment sense we are renting {BOOO} but have some creative ideas to get some color on the wall without painting. I just need help with the color pallet first.

Room idea One:
I would have the furniture the white color Shiloh's bedding in the pink & the baby bedding in the Aqua. I would add abstract wall art with some white frames with pictures of the two of them around the room.

Room idea Two:
The is one I would still have the whit furniture, Shiloh's bedding in Red & Baby's bedding in Turquoise. I would then do bubbles on the wall. I would find a fabric with these colors with a fun pattern & cut it into different circles & glue them to cardboard & hang them on the wall like bubbles. 

Room idea Three: 

Baby Boy Room~ This would be if we did not have Shiloh & the baby share a room & I would of course have to wait to paint until we buy a home again. But I love the color idea's.
Room idea found on HGTV

Baby Girl Room~ I would also find bedding for Shloh to match this because I would have my girls share a room :-)
Room idea found on Baby Bedding Market

So let me know what you think of my ideas so far.. once we find out what we are having it will make the choice that much easier but I would love your opinions & any ideas you may have are appreciated as well :-)
