29 and Feeling Just Fine

As of Today I am 29 years old!
It seems as if it were JUST YESTERDAY, me and my friends were all driving around wondering what we were going to do for the weekend! Dropping everything and going on Trips, Going to Fabulous Dinners all the time, Celebrating Any and Everything Just because we could, and buying a Brand Spanking new outfit for EVERYTHING! Having No other worries in the world, ohhh those were the dys!School, Dating, planning a wedding, expecting a child, expecting another child, and BAM here I am 29! A Married Mother of two precious, amazing Boys! It seems like just yesterday I was Turning 21, HOW Am I all of the Sudden 29 years old??

I keep Second Guessing myself thinking I must be Wrong?!?!?!

But Yep, It's True! I better enjoy and SOAK up this year for all it's worth! Because it's the last of my 20's :(

I'm completely content at where I am at this age, and am Loving Life, Everyone in it, And


I changed it up FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 29 YEARS, I'm now I'm a BRUNETTE!!

It's not going to stay for too terribly long, because Jess Just can't quite seem to fall in love with it!! I LOVE IT! And I LOVE These Ladies who helped me welcome 29 last night! These Ladies are Very Dear to me & I love each of them.... They Sure Showed me a good time :)

Today has Been Fabulous.... Because of this Wild Weather Jess was home with us today, and the boys spoiled me pretty good!

29 Isn't anything to be overly excited about by any means... It's just Fine... Scared to see how I react to 30! Speaking of 30 My Girlfriend Turns 30 in a couple of weeks, and we are throwing an UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER PARTY!! So Needless to say, I should have a Entertaining post to go with it! Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Family Filled Thanksgiving! I have So Much to be thankful for lately! I count my blessing EVERYDAY!

Had Enough

By the Time this Picture was Taken, My Boys ( Husband Included)
Pictures are one thing that does not fly with any of them!!!
So We had a Family Shoot... like we do EVERY YEAR, for our Christmas Cards!
And this Year things got a little wild! I can usually beg and plee with them to cooperate for just a second, so we can capture a pleasant Beautiful Family Photo....

Our Shoot Started out just fine with the talented Jessica Cole, and proceeded DOWN HILL as it went on! I felt so bad for her!! It's clear that My Begging wasn't working this time!

It was like a segment the 3 Stooges... Of course The Johnson Boys all being the Stooges!!!

  • First Trent (the Tornado) wanted to be anywhere but where the camera was. Running away every chance he could down the Dirt Roads!

  • Drew wasn't feeling 100 % (and We Soon Found Out the Hard way as HE THREW UP DOWN MY ARM)

  • Then Trent Threw his little head back into my face BUSTING MY LIP, which wouldn't stop bleeding! As you can see my one eye is filled with water ;)

  • Trent then BUSTED MY NECKLACE as his clammy little fingers grasped it and pulled it off my neck!
  • Trent then was passed to Jess and somehow managed to pop a few top buttons open giving him the Joe Dirt Look!

All & All it was CRAZY! I TOO HAD HAD ENOUGH for ONCE!

THIS WAS THE VERY LAST IMAGE FROM THAT DAY!! It's Not soo bad from an outsider looking in... But boy was I frazzled by this point!

Hopefully we will look a bit more PUT TOGETHER in ones from earlier in the shoot!
Or Maybe I should just BE REAL and send out an AS IS Christmas Card! After All She Did Do a Great Job at making us look good, for all of the Ruccus we had just put her through!

I may have had enough of the Craziness that day... BUT they better not... for one second think I'm Giving up!!! I'll keep on Keeping On! (a little more Joe Dirt for you)

As I did when I took Both boys to Drew's Preschool Photo Day!

They were a bit better behaved on this morning!

I tell the Johnson Boy's... If they weren't so Great Looking, I wouldn't want to take their picture so much! Really I just can't help myself!

A Little Fall

Fall is My Favorite Season!

I'm in Love with the tosty Fires we are having in the Fireplace every night, Hot Coco, The Colors of the Trees as they change, Colder Weather, and Trips To Bishops Pumpkin farm.
We have Enjoyed A LOT of All of these things so far!

Here we are Picking Pumpkins @ The Pumpkin Farm!

After a few Trips To The Pumpkin Patch, we were pretty well set for

We had a Great one, though it was bit different this year... We changed up by having it at our house! We have Always done it at Jake And Shannon's in the past!

Here we have Our Spooky Vampire, Ninja, Scare Crow, Stinky little Skunk & a Country Diva.

I Love Fall because of the plain Beauty of it... And Because Thanksgiving, & My BIRTHDAY!!!

But this Year it has been SUPER SPECIAL SO FAR because......

My Mother & Sister Jennifer are OFFICIALLY CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS!!!!

And I'm In love with their Location! The Fact that my mother Took the Job in Monterey makes me ONE VERY VERY HAPPY GIRL!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONTH TO ME!!!! Ohhh how I'm looking forward to spending LOTS AND LOTS OF TIME THERE!!

I'm thankful that we will be able to make many memories like this one here in Monterey a few weeks back when she came to scope out the Area... and meet with the company!! It will be so nice to see each other regularly & not have it cost us a Fortune!!

Happy FALL Everyone!!

If I had Only Known

At this time last year, we were going about our every day life! When the phone rang and we were presented the most Horrific, Shocking, news! Little did I know that life as I know it was about to Drastically Change! My future, would be minus ONE VERY VERY IMPORTANT PART OF MY LIFE!!!!

The loss of my Big Brother happened on this day One Year Ago, and It has Been the most Emotional, Painful, year imaginable! I try to keep on a positive note, and Try to Remain Thankful for All Of the Precious Memories we have, and am thankful that God Made US Siblings! I couldn't Dream Up a More Perfect Role Model, Fun Loving, Funny, Handsome, All Around Great Guy to have as a Big Brother! His influence on me for 28 years has help me to become a better person! I don't understand God's Plan in only giving him to us for 30 years... But I am Thankful for EVERY SECOND I GOT WITH HIM!

November 6th, 2009 was a day that I lost much more than my Brother... I lost a Dear Friend, and possibly the person who knew me better than anyone in the world... Besides my mother! We have been through Everything together!!
There were 5 sibling total, Jake being the oldest! HE WAS PERFECT! Now I'm the oldest, and I can't hold a candle to him... I'm no good at the Decision Making, Planning, and Advise Giving! He was our families Go To Guy!! We're lost little puppies without him!

I Tell you Life With out him Is Rough! I don't go one Day without a Sick, Agonizing feeling in my stomach of Painfully MISSING HIM!!

Besides Being the Best Big Brother...

~ An Amazing Husband~

(I used to lecture Jess on the way home, from Jake And Shannon's house telling him he needed to learn from Jake)

He was Such An Awesome Cowboy!

He was An Extremely Smart Man!
A Great Friend!

A Great Advise Giver, It seems that EVERYONE went to him with their problems!

I know he was loved by MANY, and MANY people are missing him, not just me!
His funeral Was HUGE!! And the notes and Calls from so many people sharing their love for Jake is Just unbelievable!! Such a Great Person He was!!

Like I said I try to stay positive, BUT...

I HATE Seeing Clark Tucks... I still Break my neck to see if it's him! I hate I now have ants, I know I could call Clark and have someone else come out... BUT just seeing his guys takes my breath away, is a yucky kind of way! And I can't give any other company my business!

I HATE not being able to call him for the stupidest Stuff! I often forget he is gone and dial his number to ask a question... Stupid I know... But when you have Someone in your Life your whole life... It's hard to register sometimes that they are Gone!

I Call his house when I know no one is there just to hear his voice on their machine!
If you had the opportunity to know him you too are Blessed!

If you didn't you sure missed out on One Heck of A Guy!
I wouldn't wish this feeling upon my worst enemy... No one should ever have to feel the pain my family has experienced...
But the fact of the matter is... Death happens EVERYDAY, and It just was my first time experiencing it hit so close to home! Which has made me WANT TO TELL EVERYONE, TO LOVE YOUR FAMILY, AND TELL THEM! DO NOT TAKE ONE SECOND YOU HAVE WITH THEM FOR GRANTED! You never know if it might be your last chance you have to be with them! Life here is precious, But I know what we have in store for us after is EVEN MORE PRECIOUS, I just wish I had Jake here for a LOT Longer!!
After Experiencing Something Like this, Ive learned to not sweat the small Stuff in life... Nothing matters, Nothing Besides Having your family with you, happy & Health, all together!
We Never know what tomorrow holds.....

I SAY IT EVERY DAY... I Still Can't believe he is gone!
