Hey guys! For my few readers out there...sorry I've been MIA for a bit. We've been so busy lately and I've been a little overwhelmed with all the unfinished projects and "to do" list so blogging has been the last thing on my mind. With all that said in my sister's last blog post she just listed everything that's been going on with them so I'm going to do the same.

1. Speaking of my Lil Sis, they currently live in Austin, TX, but recently decided to move back to the DFW area. They should be back at the end of August...I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. They haven't decided where they're going to live just quite yet because they are both job searching so that will be a big driving force for where the land. She's a kindergarten teacher so if you hear of anything job related for her please let me know.

2. Mason's birthday party was so much fun!!! Everything went great. I'm going to make a separate post for pictures of the party, but here's one that I just love!

3. We are 2 1/2 weeks out before we leave for our fabulous trip to Cabo! One of my favorite thing about our vacations is getting to the airport having breakfast at 7:00am and drinking a Bloody Mary...I don't know about you, but that just screams I'M ON VACATION! We will be having dinner here one night .

Sunset De Mona Lisa

We had dinner here last year when we were in Cabo. It's one of the greatest places I've had the pleasure of eating at. The views are incredible and the food is great too.
We are also having dinner at on of our other favorite spots too...The Office. Not as fancy, but super fun. The atmosphere is incredible. It's very low key and you can eat dinner with your swim suit on and you feet in the sand.

We going to play golf once while were there too.

4.I've been cooking quite a few things from the Pioneer Woman's Cook Book and Blog and everything has turned out fabulous. What have you cooked from her cook book that I should try?

5. Working out...that's seems like all I do these days. For a while my weight has stayed the same, but after two months of going so hard at the gym and usually only have 1 day of bad meals I'm down 9 lbs from my start way. I'm about 8 lbs away from my goal.

6. Mason is going through a difficult phase right now. We he gets frustrated or wants a toy that another kids has he hits them. It's soooo frustrating. It seems to be getting a little better, but still hard and I've yet to find the best disciple tactic. I'm just trying to stay consistent and follow through with what I tell him I'm going to do.

7. Mason is so much fun right now. I know, but I just said that he was in a difficult phase. Well...2 is also so much fun too. Just the other day I watched him and his buddy Gabe from next door chase after a cricket and when he finally caught it his little face lit up and he looked at me like look what I did Mommy!!! So Innocent.

Okay well I thought I had more to post, but this is all I can think up right now. It's 7:45am and my little monkey will be up in about 30 minutes demanding his eggs and pancakes so I must get going.

Birthday Party Planning DIVA

I live for this stuff. In my past life I planned corporate events so this past month I've been able to put my Event Planner hat back on and I must's been fun. My great friend Steph took a view pics of me in all my glory working on Mason's party cupcakes. I'm super excited about his cupcakes, but they've been VERY time consuming. Oh well...they should turn out so cute. So with out further's a few pics of the process. Enjoy!

Happy 2nd Birthday Mason!!!

Dear Sweet Baby Boy,

Two years ago today I was handed the most beautiful baby boy I have ever laid eyes on. I was instantly in love! I remember asking myself how can you loves someone so much that you just met?!?!There was a flood of emotions and fears. It was now my job to provide for you and keep you safe. I still remember every small detail about the day you were born and I know I always will. I can't believe we've already made it through two amazing years. And more fun is ahead. In two years you've gone from taking a bottle, to taking a sippy cup and to now just handing you a juice box or a cup with a straw. To anyone one else that might sound like know big deal, but to me, that's growth right before my eyes. I wish I could tell you to slow down, but we both know that's not going to happen. You don't know it, but I am constantly watching you and each day I am amazed at how fast you're are changing. I've noticed that lately instead of calling our cat Nina (her name is Xena) somewhere along the way you learned how to pronounce her name as longer to I hear you call her Nina. I'm happy for the development, but I must admit I will always have a special place in my heart for hearing you say NINA NINA! I could sit here and list out all the milestone you've hit or all the other things you've learned in the past two years, but all I really want tell you is that I love you and that I'm so happy God chose me to be your mommy. These past two years have been the most amazing years of my life. You've taught me patience and unconditional love. Seeing things through your eyes makes me step back and appreciate the small things. You are a strong willed and determined little boy that at times makes me a little crazy, but I know you are going to to great things with those qualities. I can't wait to experience your life, and the whole world with you! Make a wish and blow out your candles...Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
I love you more then you'll every know!
