A ER visit

On Monday we started the week off with a bang...literally! Drew climbed up on the kitchen table and as I was walking over to get him down, he fell off backwards and hit the tile floor. I quickly scooped him up while he screamed. While comforting him we walked upstairs to his room and then he fell asleep in my arms. I tried to wake him and he.would.not.wake.up! I calmly called a friend in the medical field and said to take him to the ER. By the time we got to the ER he was back to himself and I had to chase him around the hospital for two hours. Thankfully, Scott met me there and was a huge help, but these days Drew doesn't want much to do with anyone put me. The doc looked Drew over and said he seemed fine. It was such a scary morning with a great outcome. This one is going to give me gray hair!

Catch up

Hi y'all! We've been having so much fun lately. We had a really nice Valentines Day. Scott and I don't usually make a big deal out of it and I don't even get my little guys anything. I know...bad mommy. I promise you they aren't doing with out. Mason and I made the cutest Valentines treats for his friends at preschool and he came home with quite a bit of loot. Scott surprised me with a massage at one of our local spas that I actually enjoyed last night. When the therapist asked me what I wanted and to tell me a little bit about myself I told her that I was "just" a mom. After I said that I was kind of disappointed in myself...I am so much more then "just" a mom.

The boys have been super active lately and keeping me plenty busy! We can't wait for spring and all the outdoor activities.

Just Girls

About a month ago, Scott informed me that he was going to the. Super Bowl with his brother. Naturally, I was super excited for him, but I'm not one to let him "out do" me in the fun department. So, I starting texting away to see if my fun group of friends that just so happen to live on the same street as me where available for a girls weekend. Most of them were and so we settled on Ft. Worth for our stay. Most of the girls couldn't meet up until Saturday, but Steph and I being the slacker mommies that we are took off for cow town the moment Steph got home from work. My amazing parents kept the boys for me and Jeff took care of Steph's kiddos. My mom works on Dallas and we were wanted to avoid Friday rush hour so we stopped at Sissy's Southern Kitchen off of Knox/Henderson in Dallas for a bite to eat. Have you been? I can't say enough about this place...the cutest little restaurant and the food was Amaze Balls! We had to sit at the bar because they were completely booked. I got say...kind of fun sitting a the bar for dinner and chatting it up with the bartender. Something I haven't done in ages. After dinner we did some shopping at The shops at Park Lane.

Once arriving at our Hotel, The Worthington...where I just happen to have my senior prom many moons ago (class of 2000 baaabbbyyyy!) we climbed into bed and called it a night. That next morning we walked around Sundance Square and then road the bus (no drinking and driving for us) to the Stockyards. We walked around, shopped and had our boots shined. Then we walked to Joe T. Garcia's do meet the rest of the crew and randomly have our picture taken with Joe T. After a couple Margarita's there we were all feeling great and walked back to the Stockyards. Such a fun afternoon with know real obligations. Later we went back to the room and all got gussied up for a fun night out at Billy Bob's. We had an unfortunate dinner at Simply Fondue. I personally have never liked Simply Fondu, but was trying to be a team player. Wade Bowen was playing at Billy Bob's...I'm a huge fan of his so it was such a treat to hear him play. After Billy Bob's all of the girls except for Steph and I went back to the room. Us Crazy mamasita chose to hit a few more bars before last call. Such a fun weekend and I think we are all looking forward to the next one!

Viva Las Vegas

Several months back Scott and I went to Vegas for my Thirty plus one birthday. we went with a couple that we're super close with and have gone on multiple trips together. They first trip we took together was to Europe and neither one of us had children and the second time we went to Cabo and Mase had just turned one. Fun times always happen when the four of us get together and this trip wasn't the exception. We stayed at the MGM...which I love. There's always so many people there and i love to people watch. My birthday dinner was at Prime at the Bellagio, with a beautiful view of the fountains and the fiddles were mighty tasty. That same night we were walking around the Bellagio and saw a sign that one of my celebrity crushes would be at the club Hyde. There was a huge line to get into this friend Kasi just walked right up to the front of the line and said that we were ready to go in and they let us right in. We felt so young and hip. If you're wondering who my celebrity crush is it's Charlie Hunnam...he plays Jax on Sons of Anarchy. Such a fun night and trip.

Sorry in advance for any typos and such...blogging from my phone.

What's Cookin

For those of y'all that know me, you know that I have a passion for cooking. One of my go to blogs for recipes is I have made several of their dishes and they've all turned out great. Recently, I made Tortellini Spinach Bake in Creamy Lemon Sauce and it did not disappoint! Super easy to make. The only adjustment I made was after pouring the milk into the roux I added about a half cup of grated Parmesan. It makes the sauce a little thicker. It's a must try.

Cousins at the zoo

Last week the my my sister and I and our clan went to the Dallas Zoo. We are pretty seasoned when it comes to zoo outings. We've both been members for several years now. The great thing about being members is that there's no commitment to seeing everything because you're a member and can always come back and see it next time. I do think that on this particular visit we did see everything though. All the boys did so great. The babies had a blast. This was actually Drew's second and I think Owen's second visit too, but they were little babies then and my sister and I were both still nursing. Such a different experience this go around. We always bring our lunch to the zoo and have a picnic. I packed mine about a hour before we left...I'm sure my sister packed hers the night before, but, I'm kind of last minute like that. The Dallas Zoo has changed so much in the last couple of years and has really turned into a fantastic place to spend an afternoon!
