Hellooooo world! Meet Mitzi!

This is me. Not the old me, the new me. I think I kind of lost myself for the past little while, but its way past time for my reappearance. So I figured while I'm taking the time to find myself again, I might as well find a new/improved/better me.

Hummm, what do I want the new me to be like?
  • A girl that isn’t so scared...
  • Someone full of goals and ambitions...
  • A person who can do something for just herself and love every minute of it...
  • Someone that laughs out loud (often and annoyingly loud)...
  • Someone that stands up for herself...

Don't call me lame for quoting Dr. Laura, but I listen to her radio show whenever I can. I think I like her so much because a lot of her strong personality traits are my weaknesses. Do you think Dr. Laura needs validation? I don't think so. She's a woman, hear her roar! I'm just a girl that sounds more like a squeak. Anyway, she said on her program that we are the architects to our own lives and we can really build whatever we want. We can be who we want and do whatever our hearts desire and at the end of the day if we don't like who we have become, we have the power to erase the blueprints and draw up some new ones for tomorrow.

The new me is taking some risks for MYSELF (well and my little family). There is no reward without risks, so here I go. I’m going to risk it up. Risky, risk risk. I decided I am not going to just sit and watch Chris fight through this school situation by himself day after day. I can help us. No matter how vulnerable or nervous it makes me, I want to help out our little family. I want to grow, stretch my mind, and do a few things that I can feel good about at the end of the day. Old Mitzi, meet entrepreneur Mitzi. Call it a quarter life crisis, but la-de-da, it's a dang good one!

It feels good to write my thoughts down again and think. I hope I (we) like who I find at the end. This might be a little scary, but a whole lotta fun!

Bare with me, and I beg you to stick around to see where I end up. I’m curious myself.

Why am I all of a sudden singing Bon Jovi? "It’s my life, it’s now or never. I aint gunna live forever…"

A new trick!

We've been working on it a few weeks now, and he's still a little wobbly...
awww, but isn't he cute!
Last month we mastered rolling both ways, this month is sitting, next month sleeping through the night, right little buddy!?!

I just realized how much time we have spent outside this summer.
My baby loooves it!
Here are a few random pictures from our summer. outside at the air show at the beginning of summer
Hayes' reaction to these... ...was so funny! He wouldn't even blink!

watching dad and pop-pop golf in a derby

a little drive in fun

hanging out in Park City and at the cabin

Look really close at the outfit my dad bought Hayes. Yankees, Chris' family just loved that one!

and tons of swimming

(these ones are from a day at the pool with some teacher friends at Davis, I miss them already)

Summer was so fun! Now bring on the hot chocolate, chilly nights bundled in blankets, cozy sweaters, and (finally) some good TV!

White coat ceremony

Boy, you look good in white! So professional! Sucky that school already keeps you up way too late at night. At least one of us should be getting some sleep. Anyway, I just wanted to say that you worked hard to get here and we are darn little pharmacist (in training) you!

p.s. Update from last post...we didn't find a darn thing wrong with Hayes. Good news, but now we must look elsewhere for answers. A third medicine maybe, a voo-doo doctor, anything else we can think of... we are pulling out all the stops here.
