I like your dress Mommy!

Aubrie was being so adorable on Sunday. I wore a new dress, (I got my Easter dress early this year!) and all day she kept saying "like dress Mommy" and coming over and touching it. It was so cute. I was loving it! So after church we put on our slippers over our tights (Its what I do while I make dinner sometimes- don't ask me why) anyway and we danced around in our dresses. She was wearing her "Belle" dress from Aunt Kristi. So cute! This other picture is Aubrie in her new Cinderella pajamas. I told her to go stand by the sink and smile. She actually did it- this is a first. Usually she is way to busy to stop playing and hold still for anything. Have I mentioned that I love having a girl?!

p.s. I have tried everything I can think of to rotate this picture- short of just scanning it and then uploading- any suggestions?

New Haircuts

Hello everyone!
So Aubrie and I got new haircuts recently and here are the first pictures to prove it! Mine was by choice, hers was a mishap. I always put little rubberbands in her her hair to keep bows in and make pigtails- well at night I have to cut them out with scissors. A little while ago Brent was cutting them out and went- OOOPPS- showed me a chunk of hair and bam- Aubrie had instant bangs! Luckily Aubrie has the best Aunt in the world and that Aunt happens to be a hairdresser. (Nice job on the haircuts Aunt Becky!) I think Aubrie looks darling with bangs- tell me what you think......

Valentines Day Tag

In honor of VALENTINES DAY, Adrienne "tagged me" and my job is to answer these questions about Brent and I. This is really funny to do and it might just get me in trouble if Brent actually reads this...

1. What is your husband's name? Brent Cameron Dawson

2. How long have you been married? Almost 5 years (scary!)

3. How long did you date? Not long enough!!!!!!!!! Only 4 1/2 months (I do NOT advise this to anyone!)

4. How old is he? 27 (yes he is younger than me.

5. Who eats more?Brent definitely hands down

6. Who said I Love You first? Brent, and he was really ticked that I didn't immediately say it back.

7. Who is taller? Brent (thank goodness because man do I LOVE my heels)

8. Who sings better? Well Brent is louder, but I tend to not be as tonedef (sorry sweetie!)

9. Who is smarter? You really want me to answer that? Brent is going to have so much schooling of course he will be. Ha Ha

10. Whose temper is worse? Mine - Mine - Mine I defintely can lose it. Usually with just a few choice words and then I feel much better. Brent never gets mad. In the 5 1/2 years I have known him I think he has yelled like once.

11. Who does the laundry? Me - I hate it but you need to wear clean clothes to look cute right? Wouldn't it be nice to send your clothes out to the cleaner? Yes all of them....

12. Who does the dishes? Both of us, when Brent is home he really does help with things around our place- I love it!

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Brent- it is by the window and I get cold. Plus I get up first and it is easier not to have climb over him.(the other side is also against the wall.)

14. Who pays the bills?Me - When would Brent have time, plus I am the one that spends the money!

15. Who mows the lawn? What lawn- ha! Someday when we do have lawn I am sure that Brent will (hint hint Brent!)

16. Who cooks dinner? Me and I enjoy this - Brent can cook and does if he is around.

17. Who drives when you are together? Brent well actually I should say that my "backseat" driving counts as driving so it is me after all.

18. Who is more stubborn? Me no question.

19. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Brent- he is a sweetheart, I am a brat- need I say more? I can and do admit when I am wrong it just never happens....

20. Whose parents do you visit the most? This is blank for a reason- I don't want to start a fight!

21. Who proposed? Brent

22. Who has more friends? I keep in contact with more people and definitely talk on the phone to friends more than Brent.

23. Who has more siblings? I do.

24. Who wears the pants in the family? Again, I don't want to start a fight but I think that anyone who knows me knows the answer to this one.

Okay so there are the V-day questions. I am now going to "Tag" some friends of my own. Lindy, Bonnie, Becky, and anyone else that feels so inclined.... I would like you to answer these questions and send them ASAP!

So- last weekend Aubrie was supposed to be taking a nap. Instead, she got a hold of a blue sharpie. As you can see from the pictures, it pretty much has destroyed her bedding (why did I just have to get the expensive one?), two walls, and about half of her toys are decorated with the "pretty Mom" marker! Any ideas for me?

Greetings! Sorry for my lack of writing lately- Aubrie and I have been sick!

So, I have been working a few days a week at Downeast Outfitters in Salt Lake. It is a cute little store with very trendy clothes in this ritzy shopping center (Foothill Village). The people that come in are usually pretty colorful. Last week a young guy (probably close to my age) was looking perplexed as he went through a stack of jeans. When I asked him if he needed help he said, "Well, do you have any jeans that don't go so wide at the bottom?" I tried hard not to smile as I looked and noticed his very tapered jeans!!! I was like well that is what is in style. He then said, " I mean man what shoes do you even wear with these?!" I replied, "Uh any!" It really was comical. Hopefully the woman in his life thanks me later with the nice pair he bought! Yesterday, a woman came in, in such a hurry needing help because she exclaimed, "My driver is waiting!" I was thinking -look if you are that rich that you have a driver, make him wait for you! Then she proceeded to tell me how rough life was because she couldn't find a big enough house around here, so she was living at a hotel. Nice huh? Most of the time I really do like my job.... (6 more months?) at least my "bonuses" come as gift cards right? Really their new spring line looks adorable! I am super excited- and just purchased a nice hot pink shirt to go with my newly brown and blonde highlighted hair. (I hate it!) I will attach a picture later. Check out downeast.
