Our Trip To Sea World – November 2013

A little late posting this, but I didn’t get anything done over the weekend while the girls were gone because I was suffering from a migraine almost the entire time.
Luckily, I felt pretty okay my the time my bridal shower started ๐Ÿ™‚
I really didn’t take a whole lot of photos while we were at Sea World.
We left kinda late to head over there because we didn’t know they closed so early, so we didn’t get to see everything, but the girls had a great time!
My dad’s company has their ‘company picnic’ every year at Sea World, so we got tickets and so did my sister and her fiancรฉ.
However, my dad ended up hurting his foot and so my parents weren’t able to go :\
We got to see part of the beluga whale show, the sea lion show, the girls rode the shamu roller coaster, we saw the aquarium, had dinner (which was supplied by my dad’s company) and then saw the killer whale show.
For that one we sat in the splash zone!
It was a LITTLE chilly out and the entire time the girls wanted to sit in the splash zones, but I was too worried about Gwen getting sick.
We knew we were leaving right after this one, so I gave in ๐Ÿ™‚
Best part is…. when you go to check in for dinner they give you free tickets to the park!
We will definitely leave a lot earlier next time!
P.S. I’m pretty sure my camera is broke from getting wet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
Heading in!

Quick Little Update

Cory is currently at school with the girls for ‘Breakfast with Dad’ โค
Anyway, I haven’t been online much because I had to make a 12 hour drive to go pick up my nephew and had him for a week, we took the girls to Sea World (I’ll probably make a post about that this weekend), and things have just been a little hectic over here!
I finally have both of my wedding registries finished (my bridal shower is this Sunday! Yikes!), my house is looking really great and the girls go to their dad’s house this weekend for the first time in a few months. While I miss them dearly when they are gone, I am quite excited for a stress free/kid free weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
My goals for this weekend are to work on getting pictures transferred to my external hard drive, clean my bedroom (it needs it DESPERATELY), make lots of graham cracker houses and find a little bit of time to just relax ๐Ÿ™‚
Enjoy a few random photos from this last week-ish ๐Ÿ™‚ <– My computer tried to autocorrect that to weakfish o_O

Graham Cracker Houses

It’s that time of year again!
When I was growing up, we made these things with my mom and sold them every. single. year.
I swore that I would never do it again, yet here I am! Haha
I decided that it’s a great way to make a little extra money during the holiday’s, and quite frankly, I do kinda enjoy it… (shhhh!)
This year I decided to try something new (you know, since now we have all this awesome technology!) and listed them in my Etsy shop!
Adorable, aren’t they!?
They make great Christmas gifts for teachers, family, friends, your mailman, nurses and doctors in your doctors office, coworkers, neighbors, the list goes on!
If you’re interested, you’ll find me on Etsy RIGHT HEREย ๐Ÿ™‚

Brunnemann’s Halloween 2013 & DIY Costumes

Cambria right away knew what she wanted to be for Halloween… Really, anyone could have guessed that she wanted to be a unicorn, she’s OBSESSED!
I searched and searched on Pinterest for DIY ideas, and finally decided on THISย mixed with THIS.
Mind you, the horn and ears were absolutely not as easy as she made them seem!

I knew that I wanted Gwen to be Eloise, because she IS Eloise! Haha
She agreed to it quite quickly ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how their costumes turned out!

After I got them dressed and took pictures, I had to leave to make a 12 hour drive to get my nephew who is staying with us for a little while, so Cory painted pumpkins with the girls…
(Cory painted half of his for me ๐Ÿ™‚ )
Aaaaand of course, before they left for Fall Fest at a church down the street, Gwen and Cambria managed to break Cambria’s horn and ears! :\
Pouty face because she’s upset about it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
Luckily, she cheered up a little
Thanks for looking!
