A Time to reflect.......

Im noticing a lot of posts and blogs like this. Many had struggles and pain. Many had the best year ever. Me it was ok. Not wonderful not horrible. We made some pretty big changes.

The beginning of the year we were in Corona, Nick was working for his dad, Anberlyn was a year old.
February a friend and I started a Christian mommy group, in hopes to bring mommies strong friends of like mindedness. I have made wonderful friends through that group. Though now the group is slowly falling apart and will not last through another year I am so happy to have met these women. (there is no drama or anything in the group, people just have busy lives and cant make it to events, and its getting expensive and there are dues. We plan on continueing the group via facebook) I also turned 25 this month of February.

March and April the friend mentioned above and I started our own business! That was super exciting making little girls pretty, what a joy. Rock A Bow genius name.
Nick has been in search of a new job, the search has been long and hard on him. He had a second interview and was to start in May. We decide to put in our 30 day notice to move, the drive wasnt that bad for Nick but not necessary we moved 20 minutes down the road to Yorba Linda (which 91 e time is like an hour down the road.) We LOVE the condo we are living in! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

May is when we moved.

June Nick and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary! Time flies! I married an Amazing Man and really couldnt ask for better! He accepts me for ALL my short comings, as do I him. He is an amazing provider and works hard so that I may stay home to raise our children.
July Im pregnant. I got pregnant on the 4th of July, there were fireworks!! haha corny I know! I knew three days after that, that I was pregnant! My breasts were so tender and sore and I just knew. We waited a few weeks to tell anyone as to not take away from my little brother as he was leaving for basic training. We did however tell him. My morning sickness started this month as well! UGH! Awful Awful times!



October feeling better, still getting sick but not as often, I am able to go through my days for the most part.

November, a month of thanksgiving, and we had much to be thankful for!

December- was hard Nicks work messed up his paycheck. Bills went through that werent expected. We had to borrow money, which was very difficult on hubby, but we made it through! I think...... We also welcomed a new family member into the world!!! Miss Juliet Joy was born on December 23rd! Im so happy for my sister and brother in law!

As the year comes to an end, a word that keeps coming to mind is forgiveness. People often say it, but dont mean it.


–verb (used with object)
1. to grant pardon for or remission of (an offense, debt, etc.); absolve.
2. to give up all claim on account of; remit (a debt, obligation, etc.).
3. to grant pardon to (a person).
4. to cease to feel resentment against: to forgive one's enemies.
5. to cancel an indebtedness or liability of: to forgive the interest owed on a loan.
–verb (used without object)
6. to pardon an offense or an offender.

All through the Bible ( which I believe ) It also talks about it.

I believe if one genuinely asks for forgiveness, and I forgive them, thats it. No more bringing it up. My heavenly Father does it for me, why not take from that example?

That I think will be what I work on this coming year, forgiveness, among other things.

In three months time

Emersyn Abigale you are growing so quickly, time is flying by. I love feeling your every move and love watching you move across my belly, so alien like and creepy! I love knowing your inside of me, that I am protecting you from harm, that I am all you have. Your daddy loves and adores you, he laughs everytime he sees that alien like move. Your sister, Anberlyn, doesnt understand yet that in three months time you are gonna change her world. She hugs & kisses my belly every night and tells you nigh night. When I ask her where her sister is she lifts up her own shirt and points to her belly, your daddy and I laugh and tell her no not there so she points at daddies belly, nope not there we tell her, when she finally comes over laughing and points at mommies tummy! She will soon know, once your here in mommy and daddies arms.
Im so excited for you to finally be here, at the same time scared of whats to come. Scared of change, not knowing what to expect from you. Its a new chapter in our lives. Im excited to meet you Emersyn, In three months time!

Its For Sure

We are having a baby girl!!! We are stoked!

As much as I (WE) wanted a boy, God had other plans for us and wanted us to have two precious girls! The ultrasound today was amazing and her profile is the same as Anberlyns!

We also came up with a name, going back and forth we were between Abigale Emerson Benson and Emerson Abigale Benson. We are going with the 2nd.

Thats all for now as Nick is waiting for me to join in on movie watching!

It's a girl.....?

There is a pretty good chance that the baby is a girl, the Ultra-sound tech said 75% chance. The baby never spread its legs, no matter how many time I got up to pee or wiggled my belly around! So there still is a chance we might be having a boy!
I am now very excited for a girl! All of the clothing we have saved, and them sharing a room, how perfect! We have finally after much discussion and whatnot come up with a name for her! Which we will share with everyone on the 25th when its a confirmed girl! Its a cute name and it fits our family!
Trying to get across to a 22 month old that she is going to be a sister, doesnt really work, she kisses my belly and says baby, but Im sure she really has no clue that her little life is gonna be turned upside down in just a few short months! Im scared, its gonna be hard. After a few months they will be sharing a room, and I cant help but think Anberlyn is gonna want to share a blanket or a toy and throw it into the crib at night, maybe bonking the baby on the head! We are gonna invest in a video monitor so I can see whats going on, but it still worries me a bit.
Here I am rambling yet again. Its an adventure to come, and although I am scared Im excited to do it!

Wheres Anbo!?

I know I havent posted many pictures of her, I have taken a few, but my laptop broke (the power cord no worky) and its harder to load pictures on to the desk top, Im lazy! haha I will soo though and you can see my little munchkin!!! :o)

Monday, October 5, 2009


I know you all have known now for awhile now, and so have I, but as soon as I hit 15 weeks it really hit me. Im reading up on pregnancy and all that I have forgotton! My baby this week is the size of an Orange! and is getting peach fuzz and eyebrows! There is so much going on in my body Im thrilled to be carrying this child!

The first trimester as you all know was hell, so many little things that lead up to just down right hating being pregnant and I think I held it against my poor baby within. After losing now 19 pounds and feeling so much better Im getting excited about being pregnant. Today we went to the Dr. and heard the heart beat, which is always a joy, I told Anberlyn it was the baby and she lit up and smile while saying "Baby, Baby!" Im sure she doesnt really understand that her life is gonna be changing and a new little one will be invading her space, but its a joy to see her react. Every night she kisses me good night then she lifts up my shirt kisses the baby gives my belly a hug and says "bye bye baby" ( I think she really means night night but its still so cute)
Now in 3 weeks time I will be finding out if we will be having a little Nick or a little Tess, I am so nervous, I want a boy so incredibly badly that I feel awful, I know God will give me what He wants for me, but my want is a boy, and I fear that on that day when that say "Its a girl" Im gonna be so sad. I cried when I found out Anbo was a girl, I love her to pieces and wouldnt trade her in for anything, but knowing this is our last pregnancy Im having a hard time with the thought of another girly! But at the same time it would be great to have a girl cuz I have the clothes! hahahaha

Then there are finances! OH how I hate money! I know we will be fine, but its hard this pregnancy is costing us WAY more than we thought it would! Nick asked me today, half kidding, if I could deliver without an epidural so that it would be cheaper!!! I looked at him and laughed! We have medical insurance, dont get me wrong, but there are still tons of costs!

Now Im just rambling Woe is me! Im truly finally excited about this baby and that is what counts! We will be a family of 4 before I know it and we will have another cute little Benson Boy or Girl!

The thought didnt really even cross my mind growing up. As I knew homeschoolers they were the pale anti-social kids in the corner. Not until my best friend started homeschooling her children did I realize I was WAY off.

Homeschoolers today do everything a "normal" kid could do. They have school dances, clubs, band, drama, everything. The difference is I would be the one doing the teaching. Not really alone, your with a group, helping you out and leading you. The kids can interact with the other kids in the group. Their are many different ways of doing it and I am on the quest to find the one that best fits me.

There is something about protecting my daughter from the unnecessary crap of the school systems and other kids that I wanna do. Am I gonna shelter her from the world, hide her under a rock and not let her see the light of day? Of course not. But if I can raise her and teach her to be like the many home schooled people I know today I will be one blessed mommy.

I feel this is what I am supposed to do for her and my other child. I have talked to school teachers who have said that they wouldnt really want their children in the school system. Oh and private school is not any better if not worse than a public school, as its where parents send their children as a last resort after they haven been expelled from other public schools. I went to a private high school for 2 years as well as a public high school. (I wasnt expelled from the public school, I chose to go to the private school)

Let me Mention some experiences I had.

7th grade:
I was in Spanish, this particular Spanish teacher was lets say different, a bit crude. He enjoyed cursing at the announcement over-com, drawing students on the chalkboard peeing in urinals and just plain grumpy old guy who thought he was funny. To most 7th graders he was funny, but not appropriate at all!

8th grade:
Math, I was failing. I kept telling my mom it wasnt my fault that I was trying but I didnt understand. She didnt believe me thought it was just an excuse, so she set up a meeting with him. This is what he told her," Im sure Tess is a bright student who could tackle this, but I cant handle my class so therefore Im not teaching them."

History, was a joke. We had a cowboy for a teacher who couldnt speak in complete sentences, and the whole year was spent learning the states...

9th grade:
English, hahaha This teacher could care less, most the year was spent playing truth or dare, kids making out in the corner and such as this poofy haired young glasses wearing teacher "looked" busy at her desk.

10th-11th Private School
was ok, the teachers cared, but it was so easy I just kinda kissed butt and walked out of there.

I got my GED, I hated school and was over it. I moved out on my own this year.

So I wanna homeschool Anbo and baby to be. I wana know who is teaching my child. :o)

Washington, State that I Love

Just over 6 years ago, my wonderful husband surprised me with a road trip for our honeymoon. Packing up Nicks dads older Mercedes and heading up the coast. Little did Nick know, I HATE road trips poor guy, but I took it in and learned to love our little trip. As we headed up Californias beautiful coast we hit Hearst castle such an amazing place to visit. As we were close to Monterrey the car broke down, in Carmel. Being 4th of July weekend there was no one opened to fix it, so we dropped it off in front of a local Mercedes shop and dealt with the un-expected. We ended up going to the Monterrey aquarium, another AMAZING place to visit I reccomend everyone go at least once, it puts Long Beach Aquarium to shame haha.

Nicks wonderful dad ended up driving up with his moms new car and we got to go on with Nicks planned honeymoon! We had to skip out on going the rest of the way up the coast and going through Oregon and Washington Straight to Vancuver Canada. Arriving at nearly 3am I was surprised to see how many people were walking around the streets. The hotel Nick reserved for us was wonderful. This part of our trip was cool, seeing about 5 Starbucks within a mile of each other ( I have it on video its no joke, one set kiddie corner from oneanother) we went to a Gorgeous national type park and just enjoyed being with one another! Time in Cananda was short and pleasent now it was time for the next venture on our trip, Seattle!!!!

As we drove into the city my mouth dropped and I was in awe, the space needle in the distance, it truly was a site to see. We spent a few days in the city, visiting touristy things, the space needle was super neat, pikes place market was amazing I fell in love with it! Fresh flowers fresh fruit and just the atmoshere. We had dinner with Nicks dad and his best friend one evening (his dad was in WA for business) Driving though WA was so pretty, so green, fresh almost. The next evening we headed down to stay with Nicks grandparents. Such a pleasure as his grandmother was so welcoming, so loving she made me feel as if I was apart of the family!

The thing I noticed while in this green state was everyone seemed just a bit friendlier, the weather is cooler and we LOVE rain. We have visited almost every year since and each time there is something new we fall in love with. I would love to bring my children up there. We have looked into it a few times, Nick searched for jobs there when he was looking, It just hasnt been the right time. I pray that one day it is!

Who am I??

I have fallen in love with reading peoples blogs. I know so many very talented writers who just pull me into their words, into their lives. They write and are so open and real, a side of them I didnt know existed, but am glad that Im getting to know.
This got me thinking, my words written on my blog are gibberish, meaningless, your not getting to know me or who I am. Your seeing a few words here and there, Im a difficult person to get to know, I think I tend to hide the real me, in fear of rejection in sounding stupid or dumb Im easily intimidated. Though I am willing to let myself out there, but am scared.
Let me tell you a bit about myself:

I love Jesus, I desperately strive to have a relationship with Him to give Him my life and trust in Him with it. Im having a hard time with it. I know He is there and I know He loves me. I was born a sinner and relationships are hard. He is sitting there just waiting for me to call to him, and I just live my life. Its a battle I am having.

I am deeply in love with my husband, as he is me. He shows me this daily. I try to show him, but I fall very short. He comes home each day to a messy home, dinner un-made, dirty clothes piled high. Me still in my Pjs complaining about my pregnancy, oh woe is me. He makes dinner for his family puts a load in the wash and just loves on us. I thankd God for such an amazing man. I also pray he doesnt get tired of it. I know this pregnancy is short and I cant get back to making dinner and whatnot but until then I just let him know how much I appreciate and love him.

I'm a terrible mother! at least for now. Anberlyn, poor poor Anberlyn. I just dont have the energy I want, the TV has been a life saver. I try to turn it off and just sit on the floor with her, but its so hard. Its a routine that needs to be broken! Her diet has consisitend of various types of crackers, graham, saltine, triscut you know easy, that doesnt make me naucious. As a little girl she is amazing and still loves me. She is my heart!

Woe is me. I complain, complain. complain. This pregnancy has taken such a toll on me and my body, its so easy just to complain. I am thrilled though, I can not wait for March to come and I get to see his or hers beautiful face (or not so beautiful face) and just fall in love again. I remember seeing Anberlyn for the first time. I remember Nick holding her just in awe. I cant wait for that day!

Spiders, Im scared of them! Where we moved, we haave some pretty narley ones, fuzzy ones, BIG ones, long legged creepy ones. Thank God I havent seen any inside since we moved in. There was a couple that took advantage of the vacant space before we moved in, but they are gone now. I saw a long legged creepy one yesterday outside, while Anberlyn and I were playing in the water. (This is no daddy long leg, I can deal with those) I came running into Nick to kill it, he stopped work and came straight out to do so, protecting his girls from the big bad spider!

What else do you wanna know? I love pink, I love hair and make-up. My biggest fear is losing my husband. I want to succeed. I want to be a great friend, Im not. I have very few true friends. I cant wait till the day when we move to WA. Im gonna homeschool my children. I love Coca-Cola. Pistachios YUM!

I dont know what else to write, therefore I am finished!

for those

who dont or didnt know. I am no longer with Rock-A-Bow. Kristen and I just had differences in opinion and decided for the sake of our friendship to split up. Once the battle of pregnancy is over, hopefully soon I will start up my own small thing, and Im still here if you have any bow needs!

Kristen has re-done the site and it looks amazing!!

Just thought I would share with you! ! !

Today Marks a day in history. Where were you that day? I remember I was fast asleep, and I heard my mom yelling, "We are under attack, We are under attack!!!!!" I kinda woke up heard her and thought to myself "ok mom, its just ants get the bug spray" ( I thought ants were attacking the apartment) Then I heard her scream "I just saw it hit the other building, we are under attack" Then I knew it wasnt just ants. I jumped out of bed and found my mom crying in the living room.

We sat in front of the news in disbelief for awhile, then got ready for school. At the time I attended a small private school. When I arrived at school there was this sort of calmness, people dropping of their children not speaking much. The sanctuary had quite a few people in it, knelt down praying, for the safety of our country, for the hearts of its people.

We spent the day that day at school watching the news, talking about what was going on. It was a very relaxed day.

I remember people gathered together on the streets of Anaheim waving flags, holding up signs. This lasted a short few weeks. I thank each and every person who was there that day, the firefighters, police men, troops, normal everyday people doing what they could to help and comfort one another.That day it didnt matter who you were, what you believed, who you voted for. All that mattered was getting you out, putting your arm around the person next to you to get them across the street.

So again I say Thank you to our troops, to the armed forces, our firefighters, to the people doing their best to keep me and my family safe! Thank you for fighting for my freedom!

And to my little brother who is in training for the air force, We are proud of you!!
(My family with my little brother)


24 years ago today my mother in law gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Jodi is an amazing person today with a passion to help people. She is very smart and just as beautiful as the day she was born. Today she is in Virginia attending school in DC to be a PA. She is working so hard, she has seen and smelled (ick) things I hope to never see or do with my sensitive tummy (a PA is a physicians assistant she has helped in surgeries and has smelt burning flesh, BLEH) She has been married a year and a half, and has a spunky dog, Lacey. She has accomplished much in her life and I know there is still a lot more to come. I know I am very very proud of her, I can only imagine how proud her parents are.
(SIL & her hubby)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JODI! With many more to come!

a small smile

I know I mentioned it before but I love the count down at the top of my blog!! MY baby looks LIKE A BABY! I got all teary eyed and excited. I keep thinking that time is going SO SLOW but when I think WOW Im 10 weeks,its kinda going quickly, I KNEW I was pregnant 3 days after you know I got pregnant. Technically its been 8 weeks ( i dont like that they add 2 weeks but whatever it makes it seem like its going by quicker I guess)

How am I doing, okay.
Each day is different I ate all weekend which was a HUGE deal! My Medicine is working! though Im still sensitive to a lot of smells and Anberlyn's sweaty feet makes me gag so does going into the kitchen.
TMI I was constipated for 5 days, thats better now and super exciting, I think my body is scared to pass a BM because I bleed each time because of the stupid polyp, it scares me.

Anberlyn is doing great, getting a bit sassy for my liking.

I like to babel, have you noticed.

tears and cheers!

Today Nick and I watched a tear jerker, I cried and Cried! The movie is called Grace is Gone, the mom dies and the dad has a hard time figuring out how to tell his girls! OH MAN! Im guessing being pregnant did not help! So after the movie was over we decided to go off to Ikea just to get out of the house, I made Nick take a picture of Anberlyn and I because we dont have many of us, lots of them, and if I were to die I would want her to have a photo! HAHA Im crazy this I know!

After we came home from our trip to Ikea we headed to Target, then home, WAY past Anbo's bed time I got her un-dressed then headed to the restroom to pee for about the millionth time, I have been peeing so much with this pregnancy! Anyhow, Anbo made her way into the restroom, so I thought hey I will remove her diaper just for the heck of it, she sat on her little potty, then stood up, then sat down, up and down up and down. I noticed some pee on the floor and was a little bummed, THEN noticed way more pee in her potty! I think she started off in the potty then stood up and the rest ended up on the floor. I pointed and cheered, she looked at me like I was crazy, she had no idea what she had just done, but I was happy! Potty training wasnt in the near future, but I think we may just continue introducing it and letting her sit there when Im there or whatever and let her do it when she is ready!

I LOVE my ticker on this page, I know it takes up the whole top of the blog but I love seeing it and wating the days get closer to the new baby being here, it kinda makes it real as many days, besides the throwing up, I forget Im pregnant and dont feel like this is happening. Im 8 weeks today!!!! a little over a month until the first trimester is over! I cant believe it! I know this is gonna go by fast, I just pray the sickies are gone and I dont have to go to the ER again, i HATE needles (though my man nurse guy at the ER is a PERFECT needle inserter, I didnt feel it, it was great!) and sitting there getting fluids pumped in SUCKED! It was so boring, Nick was there by my side as he always is! I married an amazing man, he truly is unbelievable, God has blessed me with a great husband and even greater father to my children!

Well Im done with my blabbering!

Friday, July 31, 2009

update on me.

welp the dr. didnt give me medication, but advised me to eat high protein high fiber meals. It has help me a lot. Im still nauseous but Im feeling much better.
I had some heavy spotting yesturday morning as well, the Dr. sent me into see the ultrasound tech, we couldnt get a heartbeat, which is probably cuz its just a tiny bit too soon, but just in case she has put me on basically bed rest I guess. Im supposed to keep it easy, no errands, no picking up Anbo, just relaxing! Nick has set up shop at home, he has been amazing! God has blessed me with a great man, and Im truely thankful for him!

So if you need me, Im on my couch! :o)

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Oh Boy!

The Joys of pregnancy have kicked in! Which is why we decided to share the news of it, we were planning on waiting a few more weeks to let everyone know.

This past Sunday started the nausea, which limited me to the couch, moving made it worse.
Today the joys of throwing up kicked in! Im super scared. My pregnancy with Anbo, was to put it lightly, HELL!!! I had lost 22 pounds in 4 weeks with her. I do not want this to happen again! Throwing up started today, tomorrow I have a Dr. appointment and Im praying they will give me something to make this all easier, I need to be able to work with Anberlyn. Feeding her is the hardest, I cant look at food. Welp, writing this is making me feel really icky and I have to take care of it! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

We are still alive over here! actually getting stuff done! Here are random thoughts.

Anbo and I have been at the pool many days! Im a white white person, but that is slowly changing with my new addiction to the pool! I do wear sunscreen, and I dont lay out ( SO BORING) but a tan I think is in the works! Nick is not happy with that, he likes me at my whitest!

Coke! I LOVE coke! I stopped drinking it for about 6 months, it is re-entering my life! I am proud of myself today, I longingly looked at McDonalds thinking a Large coke sounded AMAZING, ice cold and bubbly! BUT, I drove on. I got home sliced up a juicy lemon squeezed it into a large cup and filled the rest with ice and water!!! So much better for me, and more refreshing!

Thats all for now. My phone is ringing, my daughter in awake!

After not updating this, its getting a little overwhelming to try and figure out what I should put up! I will in the next few days add some photos from the last few weeks.

A WONDERFUL long weekend!

This past weekend Nick and I celebrated 6 years of marriage!! We started it off by dropping Anberlyn off at a friends house. They have a daughter a few months younger than Anbo, they had a blast!
We then headed off to see Transformers, neither of us really enjoyed it. Six years ago Nick took me out to dinner, an amazing dinner after that meal we walked down to this memorial thing, this is where he asked me to be his wife, SO every year (except one) we head down to this restaurant to eat, and I think this year was the most AMAZING meal! Las Brisas YUM YUM YUM! This place also has an amazing view: After our meal, completely stuffed, we headed home to drop off our left overs, I changed out of my heals, and we went off to see The Proposal. The first theatre we went to was sold out, the next one didnt have a showing for hours, and on our way to the 3rd one I broke down, I missed Anbo and I kept think Nick and I were gonna get into a car accident and she would be left with no one! Nick said we could just go home , but I said no it ok, we will be ok, as Im bawling! haha We got to the theatres it wasnt sold out and they had a showing!!! I REALLY enjoyed this movie! I reccomend it!

We came home and set out an air matress in the living room and camped out and watched a movie ( We LOVE movies and dont get to watch as many since Anbo) Morning came around. Nick made breakfast and then we headed over to coffee bean to meet up with our friendsto get our daughter!!! So EXCITING! Our Sunday was fun we cleaned up the patio and just spent a day at home! Nick stayed home from work on Monday to spend a day at Disneyland!!! We decided to get Anbo ready in her swim suit to play in the water at DCA! (This is a neighbors front door. )and off we go! Nick and I took lots and lots of pictures. I couldnt decide which to share so I am sharing lots and lots of them! I hope you enjoy! We sure did! I LOVE LOVE LOVE family days! The weather was perfect for it as well! Not to hot!

The water came on anf got me!

My Cuties!

Shes figuring out where we are going next, Toy Story, a quick change and we were off.

Anberlyn LOVES standing on fences and looking through.

She was knocked out!!!

She NEVER gets this knocked out, she even slept through us picking her up and getting onto Pirates! She didnt wake up until after the second little drop on the ride! even then she was in LALA land!

Scarey daddy!

She LOVED going up and down the stairs.

Daddy is tired!

HI Daddy!

She loved the fireworks! I was surprised I thought they would scare her!

It was a perfect ending to a wonderful day!

washing rocks or hair?

It was warm a few days ago, and I let Anberlyn go out and "wash" some rocks, she had a blast

She scrubbed the rocks, and the patio grounds, the walls everything:

Then decided she wanted to wash her hair

All wet she had fun, she dunked her head in the water over and over.

This video is kinda long, well it is very long, but cute.

Anberlyn is developing into such an amazing little girl! Her personality is so funny, she cracks Nick and I up daily!

She LOVES to spin and dance
She is signing and talking so much more, communicating is becoming much easier.
Anbo loves to eat, and run! (I need to take lessons)
