Tis' the Season MuthaFuckas!(nvgr)

Sup Front-Pagers! Just shooting the breeze (nvgr...or is it?)

it's been soooooo long since I've been to the front page blogs. but i'm sure that no one really missed the rantings of a grunchk1n. In case anyone is wondering what I've been up too, it's nothing much really. Trying to do this whole stay-at-home mom thing is pretty cool, I still have a lot to learn. It feels like I'm still transitioning from single couple to family slowly but surely. I'll get there someday soon, I already got the mom look down that my daughter can tell when she did something bad, and have that awesome mom tone of voice where I can get her to pick up her toys and such. And I'm starting to freak out when things don't go back where they need to be. Luckily, I still have time to play games. I'm actually playing Oblivion: The Elder Scrolls for the first time, and I'm loving it. I get so lost in the side quests that I almost forgot about the main quest. Sometimes I'll let my daughter play with the controller while me character runs around in a forest or field, and she can after shoot the bow and arrow. Pretty talented I'd say for a 20-month-old, but then, everything she does is amazing. Speaking of the offspring, she is crazy! I love her to death though, her personality just blows my mind, she can be a stinker, and she can be a sweetheart, sometimes both at the same time. We're starting to venture into potty training, GOD BE WITH US! Luckily, she's a bright kid, and already has the concept in her head, but now needs the control of the bladder.

Lets see, let see...oh, my photography is going pretty well, I have done 2 weddings and some sessions here and there. Hopefully I'll be able to continue booking weddings and such as the years roll on. It would be great if I could do 1 wedding a month. I started those photobooth type deals for my weddings:

pretty fun, and the guest enjoy it.

What else, what else? Usedtabe, the offspring, and I will be going to Maui at the end of August to visit my family. I'm so excited for that. I have become super white here in "da mainland" and it will be nice to lay out and tan in the cool tropical breeze. Don't worry, I'll post pics to make you all jelly;) Well, I think that's all that's been on my mind. Take care all you crazy kids out there!   read

Happy Anniversary to me! (NVGR)

YEAH! 4 years have past with the man that I married named Usedtabe. It's been quite a funky ride, but we're here at 4 years now. I never thought I would be anywhere else except my little island home in the Pacific. Home is were my heart is and as long as Usedtabe is here with me, I will never be homesick. He provides me shelter and warmth. He gave me the greatest gift of all, our daughter Lilianna. He introduced me back into gaming. He broadens my horizons and challenges me to go farther and beyond my own expectations. Without him, I am literally nothing. Thanks for the 4 years of marriage dude:)

Happy Father's Day (NVGR)

This one goes out to all the fathers, soon to be fathers, baby daddies and those who might have some unknowing offspring running around;)

I wish I could give you all a piece of usedtabe's father's day cake, but we'll think of you when we eat it:)   read

BBY-toid (NVGR)

Since I've become a stay at home mom, I am able to reconnect to my creative roots. In between the naps, feeding and cleaning (somehow), I was able to make my little Lilianna her first d-toid apparel. Of course, I had to make it all cute and girly so this is what I came up with:) And usedtabe said I should share this as well...

Oh, and I made the tutu and bow as well. I'm going to sell it on, but let me know if anyone wants dibs . And in case anyone is wondering, Delightful Photography is my photography business. So if Mr. Destructoid is ever in Houston, Tx, I would love to do a photo shoot with him free of charge;)   read

My Mass Effect2 Experience

So the game has been out for a while, but I haven't told you what I think about it yet:) Like you're all dying to know what I think right. Anywhoo, I about peed my pants at the opening sequence. My heart fluttered to see all the familiar faces and felt that stinging pain when you get your heart broken when I saw the Normandy crumble as it was attacked. I don't know what I'm so emotionally attached to this game, but I am. I was completely crushed when Kaiden "broke up" with me, and every time I see his picture on my desk, I get a little teary eyed it seems. It's crazy, I love the relationships in this game. My heart skipped a beat every time I met someone from ME1. I loved seeing Wrex again, it was almost like meeting an old friend in real life. I do notice that in ME2 I use my biotic powers more. I even tried to use them in the first game, but it didn't seem easy to me as it does in ME2. I like how you can choose your characters casual outfits. Of course I'm a female Shephard and I hope that they come out with new outfits like the asari stripper outfit so I can run around like a skank all up and down the new Normandy for fun. I thought that I liked scanning the planets for all those elements that you needed for you upgrades, but half way through my first run though, it got tedious and boring. I didn't mind in the first game actually going to the planets and looking for them. I felt like I was exploring uncharted territory and I liked finding ancient artifacts and such. Better than sitting there and scanning planets just to upgrade my assault rifle. Now my right trigger is all messed up from it. To me I like the combat even better and I love using my biotic powers. The first time i went through the game I played with a new character as a soldier. Second time I played with my ME1 character as a vanguard which was awesome because all I did was just hit enemies with my biotics. Now I'm going through a third as a sentinel, which is the best of both worlds to me. My favorite is the biotic power is the slam. I can't tell you how many hours I played ME1, I can tell you it is well over 60 hours because I got the achievement for it, lol. They're will be many more play through's for me with ME2. Oh, and here's what my character looks like, tee hee:)

btw, we had a baby & Lili update: NVGR

you might have already seen usedtabe's post of our new born daughter. we'll let me update my profile by posting this blog. then you can know all the juicy details:) Lilianna Susanne-Lyssa hart was born 11.08.09 at 9:35am, weighing in at 6lbs 12 oz. I did it all natural, hoorah! contractions started around 6:30ish, which i thought they were just signs of indigestion. at 8:30 we heading to the hospital which was an hour away, but we got there at 9am thanks to usedtabe's awesome, yet safe, driving. so we get there, sign in, and i can barely walk due to these major contractions. any whoo, the doctor checks me and i'm ready to go and then some! water breaks at 9:15 and 10 minutes later, Lili pops out in all her crying, gooey glory:) 3 hours of labor when you count the very first contraction, pretty sweet i say. i can't imagine being in labor for 14+ hours. they say that your second labor is the first labors time cut in half...yikes.

so now i'm a mom and it's great. Lili is 3 months old and can finally lift up that big ol' pineapple head she got from her daddy. She is a sweetheart and snorts when she laughs. She loves chilling on our laps when we play video games. No she like to try and grab at the controller and press the buttons. Just the other night she was playing fallout3 with daddy and she kept changing his weapons while he was trying to fight a ghoul. she's so intrigued with fallout3. i think that she thinks she's running around the wasteland. whenever usedtabe is just walking along in the game, Lili starts to kick her feet like she's running. the best part is when she yells at the tv like she's talking to the people in the game, lol. i think we have a future gamer here!

Lili just hours old at the hospital.

one month

two month

three month

i can haz cheeseburger baby? NVGR

Oh, by the way, if anyone is wondering what usedtabe and I are having... boy or girl...the answer is....girl! yes, our lil she-devil will be announcing her presence around the 15th of November. Knowing that she is a woman though, it'll probably be later than that. The nurse that saw her junk and told us she was a girl, referred to it as a "cheeseburger." we wanted a corn-dog first, but this is equally as rad! so we are excited for our lil burger baby:) she likes to kick a lot, and get's real excited when she hears her daddy's voice (awe). from the most recent ultra sound, it looks like she has mama's big nose and cheeks...poor thing:( lucky usedtabe, now he get's twice the sammiches he's used too;)

yeah! showing my baby's junk on the internetz....could this be a good sign of bad parenting? we can only hope:)   read

Rockband2 Drums<3


i'm sucha bitch to my husband when he would play the drums from the first rockband. they we so annoyingly loud, and we had to buy socks for the damn thing....SOCKS!

but the new ones....all i hear is faint tapping when i'm in the same room with him while he's playing. and they read those fast 16th notes very well too. i didn't play drums very much from the first rockband, 'cause the socks kept coming up, and when i would be hitting the notes in rythme, the drum set wouldn't register them...piss me off. but these ones are awesome! i'll be playing more drums from now on.   read
