Sooo Stinkin' Cute

This is our lil' niece Gracelyn, my oldest brother Tyler & his wife Ashley's little girl. She's about 8 months old, and seriously so stinkin' cute. I absolutely love her crazy blond hair & chubby lil cheeks. But what I love even more is that she's a lil' rockstar. My sister-in-law was in town the other day so I got to babysit for a few hours while she got her hair done. Brett & I don't have any fun toys at our house, so I just gave her some of our new bright, fun, colored bowls & our rockband drumsticks. Then she found the microphone!! I think she's the next member of our band, haha! She loved it! Practically a natural, especially with the mike. How does an 8 month old know what to do with a microphone???

Gracelyn is just one of the six of our neices and nephews....I'll just say Brett & I have some serious pressure to make some good-lookin' babies.

What We Call Fun!!!!

Rockband and "The Office." This is what Brett & I do for fun. It's practically become a nightly routine for us. Dinner, Rockband, "The Office", sleep. A while ago, Brett bought Rockband with a gift card he received as a bowl game gift (Hey at least I benefited from it! Gotta love football!) I didn't know how much we'd actually use it. And when we first started dating Brett was big into the tv show "The Office." I didn't care for it at all, but I watched it with him anyways. Now, I'm addicted to both. It's like I can't sleep if I don't at least get an episode in a night. Plus, Brett is trying to make sure I've seen all of the episodes of the last few seasons, before the show finally starts up again NEXT THURSDAY. Yes, we are stoked!!


So, Rockband consists of the guitar player, the bass player, the lead singer, and the drummer. Since its just the two of us, I'm usually on the drums & Brett takes the guitar. Don't worry, I'm still on "easy" and he's on "expert." As fun a it is with just the two of us, it doesn't really feel like a band. 9:00 ish is when our gig starts every night so feel to come by for an audition:)
