Happy Birthday to me!


I went to North Carolina for a few days. I flew in for Angela’s birthday weekend and Angela’s mom flew in from Florida a few days before me. I love love love hanging out with those two girls. We packed so much fun into just a few days.  We saw some stuff in downtown Raleigh. […]

Our friends Colin and Devlin had a Seahawks themed birthday party at ThinAir Extreme Air Sports today.  This was my first time going to a place like this. It’s a cool place and it wears the kids out pretty quickly. Leslie had a few extra wristbands so we jumped off a few times. It’s a lot […]


JP and I spent the last few days on the Oregon Coast with some of his family. Marlene wanted to rent a house on the coast for a few days to celebrate her birthday. We rented a beautiful house on the ocean just outside of Seaside, OR. JP and I flew in on the last […]


It was my birthday yesterday and my wish was to go to the beach. So yesterday morning we packed up the truck. The hardest decision I had to make was what sunglasses to wear. Then we hit the highway and headed to the Gulf of Mexico. Once we hit Corpus Christi we dropped by Justin […]

This happened when I opened my bedroom door this morning. JP and Angela are pretty tricky, huh? And then this happened when I walked into the kitchen. I feel so loved! Everyone knows that I love flowers. So pretty! Thanks JP and Angela! And Happy Birthday to me!

For the last few years Stephanie has spent every birthday in San Antonio. But this year we were not able to make it happen… sad, I know. Since we are so used to celebrating her birthday we knew that this year we couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate. If you click on the images they […]


A few weeks ago JP and I got an invitation in the mail to a Sweet Sixteen party. We have never been to a quinceañera which is basically the same thing but a year later so we had to go check it out. We clean up pretty well, right? This picture cracks me up. Alexis’s […]

We get invited to a lot of parties. We don’t always go but when we do it always ends up being a good time. Last week we were invited to Molly’s 30th birthday party and I am so glad we went. These people know how to throw a party. Check out the fiesta themed spread. […]


My friend is turning 30 this year. I have waited 4 years for her 30th birthday and I will tell you why. When I first met her I was 30 and she was 26. She told me I was old and then more than a few times referred to me as her older friend. I […]

I remember when I was a kid in school if someone was having a birthday their mom would bring cupcakes or some other goodie to our class to celebrate. JP and I were just talking about this the other day because since we are both August babies we never had the chance to be the […]

I would say that today was a pretty perfect day. JP is back in town, Lily is in a good mood and we get to celebrate my birthday. We woke up this morning to breakfast in bed. We had no idea that Lily was already awake so when she came in our room with a […]

Lily has asked me for a long time now to take her ice skating. There is a place not to far from our house named Northwoods Ice that I have meant to check out. When you go in you pay $10 per person for admission and skate rental. They also give you this sticker that […]

Last night when I went to bed I told Lily that since it was my birthday I get to sleep as long as I want. Around 8:30 this morning I could hear her and Cameron out in the living room giggling about something. A few minutes later I heard my bedroom door opened really quietly […]
