getting spoiled on my special day

Here's to 43!  I'm so blessed my family and friends took me out for a fun birthday dinner.

We went do Diamond Backs and I had sushi and lobster bisque soup.  
I ended the night with a delicious bite of cheesecake and then shared the rest.

 We sat in the back in a little cubby that was once the elevator shaft.  It was a fun table for 8 people.  I felt very very spoiled on my special day!

Layla is at cheer camp, but she managed to send me a sweet Snapchat birthday greeting.  I loved it!

last day of school

 Today is the day they've been waiting for since last August. The last day of school!

 Layla didn't have any finals to take so she had a "school night sleepover" with one of her best buddies.  Here we are over here just making some fun memories!

Hayden finished 5th grade and will be starting his second year of intermediate school.


Layla finished 8th grade and will be in high school next year!  She'll be a fish!

I am so excited for what will be a wonderful summer when I finish work the second week of June.

Bourbon Derby

This handsome forever date of mine is also my favorite co-party planner.
We had the best time planning and hosting our annual Kentucky Derby party.

As you know, my favorite part of life is taking pictures, so we loved the backdrop. 

My favorite snack was the chex mix.  It was so unbelievably addictive and delicious. 

Gary and I love having guests to our home.  We are thankful for our friends old and new.

Even though the race result wasn't what we hoped we still had an amazing night celebrating and entertaining.

Number 12 made cheer!!

Layla made the JV cheer team for her 9th grade year!! We're so proud and excited for her.

Eight of the nine cheer friends from 8th grade year tried out and made it too.  All the girls met at Freddy's and waited to hear the news. It was a little loud, once the results were posted.  There were lots of squeals and hugs!

 I'm so excited for Layla and her buddies to have another fun year of cheer together.

A day visit to the country

Sometimes you just have to jump in the car and drive to Bosque county for some time in the country. 

 It's always fun to stand around the fire and tell stories.

I'm thankful for a peaceful place to escape the city life.  The kiddos need to have a simple day every now and then away from the hustle and bustle of town living.

Painting for Valentine's night

Gary and I were gifted a fun evening of painting and beer.

As you can see we painted flamingos!

I had the most fun, but I feel like my flamingo looks like a swan.  I got a little carried away with the feather brush strokes!  We had such a fun time.  We don't typically go out on Valentine's Day  night, but this was a fun time for sure!  I'm glad we did it.

Superbowl Sunday

Superbowl Sunday is just another reason to make yummy food and have a party!

We went Mexican themed this year.  Gary grilled some meat and Gary and I had Mexican bowls.  The kids did nachos and quesadillas.

We had a fun night and as always enjoyed the commercials. The halftime show is always a treat also!

 Layla's 8th grade cheer team competed in the NCA competition this weekend.

 It was a long and busy weekend of cheering and giggles.  I stayed in a room at the Omni hotel with LK and two other cheerleaders.  They went to be late and got up super early.

 Their routine was performed perfectly two days in a row.  They are so fun to watch!

 We got to Dallas Friday afternoon.  They practiced Friday afternoon and performed Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The rest of the time was waiting and wondering and lots of bonding.

I'm thankful for a fun group of moms to hang out with!

Our girls got 12th place in our division.  The competition was tough!  They amaze me and I can't wait to see these girls head into high school cheer.  I know they will continue to grow as a team in the years to come!!

Lily & Daisy

We sure do love our furry pups.  They love the sunset just as much as I do!
