Okay, so Kris Allen. I watched American Idol religiously this past season (as usual) and I NEVER thought in a million years that he would win. I kept hearing about Adam Lambert and how talented he was...blah blah blah. I ALWAYS adored kris (see his audition, how humble is he?!). He is super underrated and he deserved to win. Plus, is he not the cutest thing on this planet? You just want to squeeze his cute little cheeks :)

Now, I had repeatedly noticed the smirk he makes while singing. My mother and aunt and sisters have recently pointed out that this is particularly annoying. But I beg to differ. I find his side smirk utterly and unbearingly adorable. Did anyone else notice how he always shrugs his shoulders when he plays his guitar too? So cute.

Oh, not to mention when he sings...his voice gives me the chills. I sing. He sings. This would make us a perfect pair.

If only he were taller. ...

and not married.

Aw The Single Life!

Not sure which reaction.
Alright, I know all of you bloggers (or most of you) don't even remember this thing called "single life" but I am caught in this storm of awkward dating.
Recently, I have been BANGING on the doors to get me out of these pity dates. Some of them are quite pleasant, but so far I keep swinging and missing. (these are all metaphors if you don't understand....just go with it here please)
While on this date about a month back I found myself daydreaming. Yes. This date was so horrible, I was daydreaming. Call me a terrible date, but believe me if you were caught in this situation-you would to. Well, to continue on I was daydreaming about my niece Portia and my nephew Palmer and my future niece (at the time) Brizban.
You heard me. I was daydreaming about how cute and perfect my fill in the blank children were.

Needless to say, I have been holding Baby Brizzy all the time the past few days, and it makes me sooo excited for my family. I have been missing Palmer and Portia like CRAZY since I've been home. So once again, I am caught vicariously living through my older sisters and their children until that Prince Charming comes and sweeps me off my feet. I'll be a handful though, let's see...any guys up for challenge?! :) yikes.

Portia. Age 2. As you can see, she was EXCITED to be potty trained. Usually she would sit on the toilet for hours on end singing to herself. She's a handful just like her auntie. But if I was as cute as that, I think my single life would be a bit more successful :)

I don't even need to explain this picture.

Palmer. Will be 4 in June. Palmer was supposed to be asleep one night when I walked in and I saw stickers all over his face. I fell on the ground laughing. Ha. This still makes me laugh when I look at it. He's the smartest 3 year old I know, he reads to me. He actually corrected me on a word once.

Who wouldn't love this?

Watching tv means focusing. Duh.

She's just so precious while sleeping. :)

Just makes you want one huh? Oh wait, most of you do. Ugh.

Okay, so I know I'm a little biased. But are those NOT the cutest kids you've ever seen? I nanny for two families right now. And yes they're cute, but not like those kids. Hello, these three have MY blood. No big.
K that's all. That's my showing off and my venting time. Have a great day :)

The Fetus Is Born. Yay!

Considering I don't have any children (and I like to think I have a few more years) I have noticed that I vicariously live through my older sisters who keep popping the children out. And since I'm a single young female (isn't that a song?) I'll post and brag about my nieces and nephews on here. Deal with it.
Last week on April 30, 2009 my sister Lexie had her first. Her "fetus" as she liked to call it, made it out into this world safely, but not easily. Little girl named Brizban Jean Cottle is a feisty one, but hey she's an Ainge. Unfortunately (or fortunately? After hearing the stories...) I wasn't there for the actual birth. But considering my own father was in the room, I like to think that was enough... Especially considering Lexie did AU NATURAL. Goodness--after the horror stories, I'm saying give me the drugs ASAP! Anywho. I present to you my newest niece. She's pretty darn cute if you ask me :)

Sleeping with her daddy and my brother in law, Nick. Aw :)

She falls asleep while eating. I can't even imagine doing that. You can see her blonde hair in this one!!

Let's just say she has Nick's fingers and toes. Here she is throwing gang signs, uh oh. Let's hope she has Nick's body with those fingers. We all laugh at her because they are scary long. YIKES.

Chubby cheeks. Of course.

In the carseat on the way home from the hospital. She's so little!

With her FAVORITE!

With Mckenna!

With Nona!

This is my favorite!
