Ah, the Comfort of Minerals!

So, I just got the Bare Minerals makeup...and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! It's especially good for the humidity down here in Round Rock, but it feels so comfortable! I'm definitely hooked. I'd tried Bare Minerals before now because my younger sister, Joanna, was using it and let me try it, but it wasn't my color, so I didn't like it much as far as that went...well I got my color, and believe me, I have never found any makeup that is my color because I am so extremely fair skinned, and I'm loving this! It doesn't even feel like I'm wearing makeup!! Hooray for makeup gurus! Mom got me mineral makeup for Christmas, and I've been wanting to have it permanently since, because it was so comfortable, and have now convinced Seth that the price is pretty much the same, so he let me get it! YAY! I think everyone should try it :)

An Ode to our Mothers :)

To my mom:
I want to tell you how much I love and appreicate you. You are always there for me and have always been there no matter how I acted around you. I admire how you are always in the service of others and I hope to become as dedicated to making others happy as you are. No batch of cookies or bread has ever been just for us...something, while young, we didn't appreciate much, but as I've grown I've started to do as well. I hope to become the amazing woman I hope you know you are. Your faith, your example...I thank you for all you have done for me and continue to do. Especially, I thank you for helping me raise Porter for the short time we were in Twin Falls. I definitely have more respect for you now that I'm a mother. I hope to be as good of a mother and friend as you are and were to me. Love you mom. Besides Seth, you're my best friend.

To Seth's mom:
I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable Mother-in-law. You are more to me than just a mother-in-law, you are my friend. That is something that most daughters-in-law can't say about their mothers-in law. I'm so glad I have the opportunity to know you and to get to know you better in the years to come. I hope you know that I love you and admire you. Thank you for having your son :), and thank you for treating me as your own.

Happy Mother's Day! (a few days late...)

Movin' Movin' Movin'

So here we are again in Texas :) Never thought we'd be back here again, but life takes you where you don't expect a least in our lives :) So far, Seth has been doing extremely well as far as installs go, and I'm pretty much staying at home with the babe all day...I need to make friends so I can get out of the apartment or I'll probably go crazy. We like our ward here, and everyone we've met has been really nice. Austin, as far as we know, is better than Dallas and El Paso in friendliness. Maybe it's because we have a baby ;)
Porter is doing well! He's lots fatter and everything is going fine. As far as nursing goes, I've decided to wean him. It's just too frustrating for me to keep pumping all the time. I figure a happier mommy equals a happier baby. I appreciate everyone's comments on the last post, though, but I really feel this is what I need to do. Three good months of nursing is better than nothing. Besides, I'm going to wean gradually, so maybe I'll have four or five good months. Porter doesn't really want to wean, it seems, because the other day he was really grumpy and didn't want anything but me as far as food went. Too bad he's such a terrible eater. It took me till 9 pm to figure out that he wanted me, so the whole day was spent with a bawling child...pretty frustrating at times, I'm sure you other mothers know.
Mother's day was a good day :) Seth made dinner and I got to nap. I was very satisfied with that. We certainly hope all is well with all of you!
