And this is why I'm voting for Obama. Enough said?!?

- my beautiful, perfect daughter
- my loving & faithful husband
- my wonderful family & in-laws
- not having to give birth to a baby over 10 pounds!!
On Wednesday my best friend, Amanda, of 8+ years gave birth to a beautiful (and huge) baby boy. Eric Daniel Gonzalez tipped the scales at 10 pounds, 3 ounces! Amanda was in labor for over 16 hours and gave birth naturally because the epidural didn't work (and how does that even happen?!? Those doctors have some 'splaining to do!). Needless to say I have a newfound respect for the woman!
Welcome to world, little guy!
Other large babies of note: ME! I was 10 pounds, 6 ounces! Sorry, Mom!

Lisa has created a wonderfully artistic masterpiece called The Creative Entrepreneur: A DIY Visual Guidebook for Making Business Ideas Real. To quote my sister, the book is "...a visual, results-oriented, step-by-step method of business development for creatives from all walks of life who want to turn their passions into viable business opportunities". The book is chock full of inspiring images from my sister as well as other creative geniuses.
Lisa will launch the book October 2nd in Portland, Oregon at a big art show.
The book's release date is November 1st, but is now available for pre-order on Amazon. You can also check out the website Lisa has created for the book.
Congratulations, Sister! I'm so very proud of you!

Hailey has worn hers every game day to support her favorite NFL team. And so what if she's slept through every game so far and hasn't even seen a single play this season? She's a fan because Mommy is a fan!

I was so inspired by my friend Nata-Leigh's blog that I decided to start my own right after reading hers for the first time. I promise I'll try and keep up with this (I know I haven't done so well with the blog on my website). But if I slip a little it's probably because I'm super busy chasing after two 15 month old toddlers all week, working my web design gig with my big sis (Lisa), and keeping my house tidy and my family fed. Whew! I'm feeling tired just thinking about all of it!
Anyway if you decide to read my blog...great! If not I understand. I just hope it won't be too boring!
