Happy birthday, honey!

Tomorrow, my sweet husband turns 33. Happy birthday, honey!

You have been such an incredible partner these last seven years and I am so happy that I get to spend my life with you.

For four years, we have been happily married. While at times you can infuriate me, you are always forgiving, fun-loving, kind and thoughtful.

You are an incredible dad and completely adored by our sweet Lainey. I can't wait until we can add more babies to our little family.

You are a wonderful example to our precious nephews, who also adore you.

And you have given me everything I've ever wanted.

I love you forever. Happy birthday.

It's OK Thursday

I found a new blog that I adore and I'm linking up! Please check out the super adorable Neely!

It's ok:
  • That my husband was out of town this week (comes home in just a few short hours!!) and I had a tomato for dinner last night.
  • That I let my daughter cry for 45 minutes one night in order to accomplish week 2 of fantastic sleep and incredible naps.
  • That I have an insatiable urge to buy myself stuff and never do.
  • That I went to buy my husband a birthday gift and left with shoes for the little one.
  • I had 3 Cokes yesterday. Bam. Fatty.
  • I worked out twice this week...It's a start.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway below! And like my facebook page and etsy shop!

And...I'm always on the hunt for new blogs...What are some of your favorites?

I am so excited about so much. Yes, life has been hard but it is what we make it. I have decided in the last few weeks to quit working altogether. If you have read before, you would know that I have been working as a freelance writer and PR specialist for the last two years. I have decided that it has taken up too much of time and have decided to use my creative skills elsewhere!

Please check out my new Facebook page! I am also working on my Etsy site!

I've been having so much fun getting crafty for Lainey and I've decided to open a little Facebook store! I'm working on a few other things to add to it, pillows, rugs and dresses to name a few. I am so excited about this!!

To get you on the bandwagon and to thank you in advance for your support, I've decided to host a giveaway for these super cute legwarmers!

New Look and Lainey's Birthday Part 2!

I am so excited about the new look of my blog! Thanks to the lovely Jenn at Munchkinland Designs for hooking me up big time!

Jenn was super patient with me when it took me almost 3 months to finally get my order going and never called me crazy once. At least not to my face. ;)

And...continuing with Lainey's birthday party! Part Two:

I was so amazed that she actually sat and opened every single present!

Like her mommy, she loves presents!

Lainey's Birthday Party Part 1

We celebrated Lainey's first birthday the weekend before her actual birthday. It was so much fun planning but I was so emotional. I could not believe that my teeny tiny baby was already one. 

I really wanted this day to be special, even though I know many will say that she won't remember. That's not what is important. What is important is that this little girl is the best thing to ever happen to me and I wanted a big celebration. 

We had her party at Joe's Crab Shack on the Sea Wall in Galveston. It, of course, poured rain the first hour of her You Are My Sunshine party, hence the frizzy hair, but it turned out to be a wonderful day.

Here are the first round of photos.

Food. We had a wonderful selection of fish, shrimp, crab balls, french fries, onion rings, crab nachos, chicken tenders, cheese sticks and tons of dipping sauces!

mommy and baby, sweating and frizzing...

this is Lainey with my best friend. It's eerie how much alike they look.

She cheered the entire time. I was so worried she would hate the party but she enjoyed every single second of it!

Ready to sing

And...she loved the fire!

"Come on, dad! Just let me at it!"

her first taste of cake. Ever.

We had more people turn up that I thought. It is so amazing to be witness to how many people love your child. It makes me feel so blessed that people came out in the monsoon of a storm to celebrate my baby.

So, happy birthday sweet girl!
