Eleven Questions

Well, I saw this on Caitlyn's blog who saw this on Tina’s blog, who saw in on Julie’s blog.  I figured it'd be a good time waster. 

1. In baseball each player gets a “walk up song” that plays on his way up to the plate. What song would you pick?

2. What’s the best thing that happened to you last weekend?
I got to spend time with T. We even went to the farmer's market together.

We also found Metalmorphosis!

3. If you could have a starring role in any film already made, which movie would you pick?

I really don't get/like to watch many movies, sooooo (insert random pick).

Oooo! Wait! I have one! The new Muppet movie! I would LOVE to have a Muppet made to look like me!

4. What actor/actress would you have play you in a movie of your life?
I like how Caitlyn chose her answer (by going to Celebrity Look-a-Like Generator).  So I tried it. I tried it three times. Why so much? Because I kept getting answers like Gary Sinise, Kate Moss and Meryl Streep. Yeah no. I do NOT look like any of them.

However, I think it'd be awesome if Meryl Streep DID play me in a movie. :)

5. What is your favorite quote?
"Though she be but little, she is fierce" 

That quote reminds me of my girl every time I see it.

6. What was your first concert?

My first concert that I remember is Blink-182.

7. What Internet website do you visit the most?

Twittttttttttter (@bethenasia) and Pinterest (

8. Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you the best and why?

Sneezy right now because of all of this pollen. Sleepy (and Dopey) without my fabulous coffee (Let's add Grumpy to my "Without Coffee" list). Happy when I'm with my Selah and T. Doc when I know it all (because, let's be honest, I do). And Bashful.... Ha.

9. If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?

Creme Brulee. Shake Shack's Dapper Dog. Iced Caramel Coffee. Spicy Tuna Roll (whole fish, not paste). Probably something else, but that's what I want right now.

10. What is the background of your computer?

I love these things!

And the eleventh question is… to you!  Answer one of the ten above!

Please and Thank you!

I WILL get a babysitter for this movie. I will! And if you know me, you know that's a big deal.

 Any offers?

Rainbows and Sunshine (With Pictures)

Rainbow baby- a baby that is born following a miscarriage or still birth.

In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison. In the case of a rainbow baby, the storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change that experience. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery.
I think I started planning (and pinning) Selah's first birthday probably before she was even born. You see, I knew she was a rainbow baby and wanted her first birthday party to reflect that. As we got closer to her birthday, our friends and I realized that it would work best for everyone involved to have a joint first birthday party for their son Liam (who was born a week before Selah) and for Selah. Since Rainbows and Sunshine is a pretty non-gender specific theme and I had already done a bunch of planning, we decided to stick with the theme. Works out well because Liam is a rainbow as well. :)
I'll, pretty much, let the pictures of the party speak for themselves.

"Happy Birthday, Liam & Selah"

Selah and Liam, throughout the year

Selah and her friend A with the adopted grandparents

Liam's so serious, but check out that attempted hand holding

Rainbow birthday tutu! (See, Meg? It wasn't that big!)
 And now it's time for a ton of cake smashing photos. Selah LOVED it (hence all of the pictures). Liam? Not so much. I think he ran from the cake and the icing and his crazy little girlfriend who was covered in the cake and icing.

 Though the ground outside was covered in snow, the party inside was full of love and warmth, courtesy of our rainbows and sunshines and everybody who loves them.
