Someone's been a slacker...

Wow. My poor blog just doesnt get the attention it deserves! I wish I was more motivated to make my posts a little cuter...a little funnier...and maybe a tad more frequent :) Oh well! We have been having THE BEST summer so far. I am getting a nice little tan thanks to trips to Amys pool, backyard bbqs with our best buds, and daily sessions on the backyard swing. 

My birthday was last monday (yay for being 27!) This is what I look like now:
I know, I know. I look 26 still. That was weird to me too...

 So my family came over to celebrate. My sister the grillmeister cooked up some turkey burgers for us and we accidentally posed for these ridiculous photos. Please note that EVERY single one of these shots is full of hilarity.

Jayna a la grill



Apparently I have some very secretive exciting plans for this cute shirt from my mother....if only I knew what they were...


This picture shows three people simply in love. Curt with his dew and Zac Efron hair. Me with my new green shoes  and Caroline with her immodest tank top. BLISS.

Now for the crowning glories...Here are Jayna and Brigitte looking mutually disgusted. (Kallie as always looks gorgeous) 

And then, as if suddenly hit by an uncontrollable spurt of joy, they mutually burst into laughter. Man, it was a good party. Just look at those faces.

Speaking of faces...Brigitte has nearly 7 teeth! Her other front tooth is FINALLY coming through...and we are thankful. The family joke has been that she was one bottle of rum away from robbing ships! (because of her pirate-y grin!)
For my birthday she wore her best little pink linen dress from our friend Caroline in England. I have been waiting all summer to put her in it and it WAS ADORABLE!
Also, you may notice we have been putting rather large ridiculous looking flowers in her wisps of hair. This poor girl looks so much like her daddy that we try desperately to girly her up any chance we get! I cant help it, I still think she is the cutest little girl I have ever been bitten by.



Our little fish of a baby has been getting in some quality pool time almost daily. (This has to be some kind of swimwear record for me. The things you'll do for your kids. And thanks to the wonderful invention that is the swim skirt, I am faring quite well!)



Brigitte is quite the spicy little independent thing: as you can see in this video, she prefers to kick herself around the pool! Is 10 months too early for swimming lessons?

And finally...You may all be relieved to learn that after weeks and weeks of hard work, Gabe (with an honorable mention to his dad Seth!) FINALLY finished Brigitte's room!!! I have to say, this is now my favorite room in the whole house! Brigitte loves her chandelier and points her chubby finger up at it every time we go in there! I haven't made her pink crib bedding yet, so its still a little bare, but you get the idea! I hope she likes me living vicariously through her. Wouldnt you have LOVED a room like this as a little girl? I know I would have!



So thats it friends. Sorry for the lengthy post, but we just had so much to document! Also, We wanted to say welcome to the family LOGAN ALEX BEAL!!! Sorry we dont have a picture, but Alex and Anna had their perfect little guy a few days ago. 7# 9oz, 19 1/2" and so so cute!!!! Congratulations you guys!

* Also, Shelley you dont know this, but your birthday money bought me the most fabulous pedicure! Thank you thank you for being so thoughtful and keeping track of all our birthdays! You truly are the BEST mother-in-law in the WORLD! And I am sorry, but its against my personal moral code to photograph my feet....but trust me when I say they sparkle like the sun!!!

And thank you also to my new BFFs Myca, Amy, Amber, and Natalia for each doing something special for me! I love having friends again...what have I been doing for the past year all by myself???!!! Youre the best!

Happy Birthday!
Looks like you are all doing well.... and VERY cute room. Nurseries are so much fun!

Very fancy nursery. Nice work. And very funny photos. Your sister's going to kill you when she sees those, I won't tell.

Shawn AND Chelsey said...

OMGosh!!! LOVE the nursery!!

johnandcourtney said...

Fun to see what you have been up to! Miss you.

jayna said...

I saw these. And I am going to kill you. You know I have ultimate blogging power...do you really want to mess?

I am not sure what possessed you, but mark my words...my camera is willing and waiting, and when the right Monica La Christy photo is snapped, you will be sorry...

Besides, it's not fair or accurate to take someone's photo when they are sitting next to a Goddess.

I sure wouldn't have ANY ideas where in the world she got that spiciness from. And I do love the nursery. Very anthro/gwen stefani and I think it is cool that she can grow up in it and probably not want to change anything (except maybe the crib).

Darcie said...

Happy Birthday soooo late, Christy!! You are looking just as gorgeous as always. LOVE Brigitte's pink linen dress. I can't believe all her teeth!

Amber said...

Jessie and Taylor Miller said...

Happy birthday lady!! I love her nursery... almost as much as I love her "pirate-y" grin! You are so witty! Keep the posts comin'!

The Cannons said...

Glad to have you back. I love your blog posts. The Jayna and Brigitte pictures were priceless really. I love Brigitte's room. I think I want my room to look like that for real.

We've been waiting for a Beal update!!! Brigitte's room is gorgeous- Gabe did a fantastic job! We're glad you had such a fun birthday and are enjoying the beautiful Idaho summertime! We miss it and all of you!

I've got three things to say:
Is that wallpaper in B's room? I love it!!!

I fell on the floor when I watched the video of B kicking around but it all the more funny with the added music. Hilarious!

And lastly, from the fuzzy video it looks like Gabe is wearing some kind of speedo? If he is, he's got guts and he's more European that I gave him credit.

Oh and Happy Birthday!

Nichole said...

I wish I could have been around for some party action. The baby room is too cute!

erin said...

Happy happy birthday! Totally wierd, you do still look 26. Darling pictures of the fam and baby. Her room is fabulous! Im jealous of it, its true. and I cant believe its warm enough up there to be in the pool everyday! all very fun.

Jennifer said...

While the nursery pictures at the end are so fabulous (seriously my favorite room ever), I also think they were very strategically placed to throw the focus off the hilariously terrifying pictures of Jayna.

She really should kill you.

Oh, and happy birthday!

Di said...

One more thing I'm dying to know what the secret is to adding music to your fun video's. Please share.

Shelley said...
