My wonderful, beautiful, amazing wife!!!

I don't know how I did it. I don't know how I got so lucky. Some how I did and I'm blessed from it. In three days I will have been married to this cute little ball of fire for 1 YEAR!!! It's so crazy how fast time passes. She is so awesome and I love her so much. She has introduced me to so many great people who I love and admire. Her parents are the best. Her mom's cooking is VEGAN and is next to none! So I'm lucky for many reasons. Most of all I'm lucky to be waking up next to the most gorgeous and beautiful and sexy and yummy and awesome and funny and cute and fun girl in the world.

Ahhh! Can you blame us? We couldn't stop giggling. oh how I love my mac!

Don't mess with my baby niece Eden, sure she's all soft cheeks and slobber-y cuteness, but apparently when she's had enough, she's not shy about letting you know! 
Us Bybee girls are known to be quite feisty. Oh, and look out! this finger flinging baby has a twin! 

I happened upon this little treasure as I was going through my California pictures from our recent trip. Every time I look at it I start laughing my head off! 

What makes this even better is it was her four year old sister who snapped the priceless candid!

riiight on

The eighties were definitely cool, especially in Long Beach. Oh yeeeeeeeaaaah.

P.S. Recognize anyone? I'm the one without a mullet. (ok maybe I have a mullet but it was out of my control).
p.p.s check out my bomb sailor shirt, looks like my nautical obsession started from birth. go mom.

this one is for my pop in law

cuz he's the hippest "b-keeper" out there yo. 

Check it here.

It gets better and better

Look at that sweet little Sue B. circa 1946-7 ish. Love the candle and the little pout! (I think that's where i get mine.) It's so crazy to see my mama once a sweet little'un
And look at this fabulous pair! On their honeymoon! Aren't they so glamorous? I secretly wish my mom had saved her clothes. I would totally wear them!

it's about that time...

My life is a little on the crazy side these days. 
i bit off kind of a whole lot more than i could chew this semester. my last semester of classes, what was i thinking???

The results?...

my house is a constant mess
our cupboards are practically bare because the dishes are continuously in the sink or dishwasher (unloading pshaw! i'm just lucky if it gets loaded. why put them back in the cupboard when i can just pull them out of the dishwasher duh?)
I don't think I even know what a vacuum is anymore.
my insane graduate student english teacher keeps giving us weekly assignments that should take weeks to finish. (THIS IS A GE I'M filling lady!) I actually just didn't do one assignment, who does that? who just doesn't complete an assignment when they are in college? that's junior high stuff. I even walked up and told her, just right to her face, "I didn't finish" really? really? REALLY?
I haven't bought groceries in weeks. just the essentials when i absolutely have to. (i know i know my poor husband, my mother would be ashamed!)
My bathroom probably wouldn't be fit for swine. 
i have to work at the most awkward hours because of my school schedule.
i can't even walk into my laundry room.
my friends probably hate me or have put out a missing persons report because i dropped off the face of the academic planet.
Shower? Shower? that's what hats and deoderant are for!
I'm late to just about everything (i know you're thinking "what's new" but I've actually gotten much better since marrying the MR., it's actually frustrating and alarming to be late now!)
We have succesfully broken four tires, one rim, and a tail light between our two cars in a matter of weeks all equally = $$$$$$$$ out of our pitifully small student married pockets

My life is sort of complete chaos right now. (not to be confused with the kind of actual chaos that people like my sis in laws experience when you have lots of little rugrats and add their schedules to your day.) 
and yet, I find myself deliriously happy. feeling complete, joyful, peaceful (well maybe that's going a little to far, wink) but truly delighted to be me. 

I get to come home to this handsome hunk 
Everyday! and that with a whole lot of other wonderful things makes the chaos ok. :)

Hot Mama geneology: it's so hot right now.

I'm fairly certain my mother will kill me if she ever sees this post. 

But it's too wonderfully awesome and adorable not to post. And I'm just so proud to be her only daughter. 

My Ma rocks. (obviously).

this is the lovely lady about age 16. 

my dancing obsessions are obviously genetic.
