What Not to Wear...

I am very excited to waitress part-time, but not excited to wear a tie.

I'm almost positive that Piper is so happy in my arms because she thinks I'm her dad.

If I had Photoshop...

This Picture would say, "Minnesota Grown" right on her hair in a fun color.

Back by Popular Demand

More pics of my sexy office (or cube, whatever)!

Below is the "main" part of my office.

And this is me doing something I love (or will act like I love for the next 8 days).

Piper's Day at Oma's

Piper hung out at her grandma's (Oma) yesterday. There she is, just chilling.

And she may not be walking, but she can drink through a straw.

She had a great day with Oma, Aunt Quinci and Aunt Hana on Hana's 18th Birthday - Happy Birthday, Hana!

A Room With a View

Who would want to be a stay-at-home-when you're working from this beautiful office (or cube, whatever)?

I would!

As of July 17th, I will be home with Piper and am hoping to waitress a few shifts each week when either Ben or our family can take care of Piper. I'm extremely excited to be home and spending more quality time with Piper, but sad to say goodbye to my coworkers!

Ben Bueller's Days Off

We took a few days off this week to be with Piper and each other - just to relax. It was much needed and we enjoyed every second! Ben decided to use his PTO to be spectacular!

Ben watched Piper while I got a massage with one girlfriend Monday and again on Tuesday while I got a pedicure with another girlfriend.

Ben washed our exterior windows - which is something I never knew needed to be done.

Ben deep cleaned our house!

Someone Should Have Told Me...

When you give in to your child's every request, they start expecting to always get things their way.

Case(s) in point:

Piper SCREAMS at the window until you take her outside to either a.) blow bubbles or b.) point at birds in our bird bath. Ben and I take turns blowing bubbles and watching for birds from our patio furniture.

Pipers sleeps in our bed every SINGLE night (since she cries when she wakes up in our crib). We have adjusted.

Piper doesn't like getting dressed. When her dad is in charge she wears nothing but a diaper.

Piper has to have a lemon, orange or lime to keep her happy while we shop so we start every grocery shopping trip in the produce.

It's becoming apparent that Ben and I need to start being the masters in this house, but Piper would rather we didn't.

The Mom

That's me on the left. Every pic the hub tried to take of me looked like I was trying too hard, so I decided to try too hard and take the picture myself. I'm Piper's mom - love that title! I'm 26 years old and have been married to Ben for 4.5 years.
Preparing to write about myself made me realize I need to downsize - I drink too much pop (way too much), too much wine (mmmmm), chew too much gum (a few packs per day) and have 3 to 4 more pets than I can handle (2 cats and 2 dogs).
I've got an incredible (quirky) family and love my in laws too. I have a mondane job in Market Research and have a knack for determining feasibility and preparing proposals accordingly (lucky me).

Piper's Dad and my Hubby

This is my husband on your right - Lucky me! He's everything to Piper and me. Our sisters were in the same Korean orphanage and our moms started a Korean playgroup. 10 years later our moms set us up on a date and we were married less than 11 months later.
Piper prefers Ben to absolutely everyone and I am (because I have to be) okay with that. :) She looks at him in adoration and he feels the same way about her. Nothing is more attractive than that.
You'll learn more about this hard working, car obsessed, twitching, incredible husband and dad. He's dynamic. :)

The Star of the Show

To the left you'll see my little Piper Rose - born May 21st, 2008. It's not biased to say she's the cutest little baked bean and guacamole loving, not (even close to) walking, bird watching scooting everywhere quadrupled tooth little daddy's girl. She's fabulous! Fairly mellow and uber thoughtful, with a surprising temper- Piper knows what she wants.
