Happy Birthday Momma!!!

Happy Birthday to the best Mom on the planet. No Joke. I’m thankful everyday that you are my momma, my best friend, Chad’s mom-in-law, and Chloe’s Mimi! We are so lucky to have you. You have to be the most understanding, kind, selfless person I know. I love how we talk at least 4 times a day on the phone, and how you have always been there for me no matter what. You are the rock in our family and always encourage us to keep going and give us the confidence we need. I’m so glad you keep Chloe for us, and we thank God for you every day. You never talk bad or judge anyone and are always so positive and you love people unconditionally, you are how people really should be. If I can be just ½ the mom you were to Bryan, Brad, and myself…I know that I will be an awesome mom! I strive everyday to be more like you…you are one of a kind.
Some of my favorite memories:
Watching "The Bachelor"every week over the phone with each other, while I was living in Lubbock
Stailey's Beauty Shop "the fall"
The stairs at Collin Creek Mall
Your reaction when I told you I was pregnant... CLASSIC, I will never forget that.
Our fun nights .... a rented movie, sonic ice, flannel pj's and rubbing our feet together.
shopping for my prom dresses & wedding dresses.
eating Tino's salsa and fajita nachos
my high school heartbreaks, and you telling me they are just sorry SOB's (hehe, okay maybe she talked bad about a couple people)
So many more to list....I could go on and on and on...
Im so happy you have given me so many great times, and I'm looking forward to be able to make such great memories with Chloe and for her to know that Im her #1 supporter like you were to me!!!

From Trash to Treasure..or at least I think..

You can see the original color from this view...
So I found this piece of furniture for 15.00, so I sanded it, painted it, and tried distressing it... I like it.

We had fun carving Chloe's first pumpkin. She did not know what to think about the goo inside, so she just stood by and watched. Aftetr the carving, I baked the seeds with Cajun salt and they were YuMmY!!!

Road Trip

We had pretty good seats!The beginning of the game! My old workplace!! Im pretty sure I was about 50 shades darker then!
My old apartment, ugly on the outside, but my mom and aunt came and gave it an extreme makeover on the inside, it was sooo cute!
Chad's house...much nicer than mine, but not so cute on the inside, or as clean :) His disposal was always clogged and gave a horrific smell through the house. yuck.
The new hotel across from the stadium.. The Overton, super nice!
Well we finally went back to Lubbock after leaving about 5 years ago, it was fun to go back and watch a game even though it wasnt a very good one. I will leave you with a couple pics of some of our old memories!

Here comes the FLOWER GIRL

We are very excited about Ben and Jen's wedding coming up January 16th. I really think Chloe is going to put on a show for everyone. I hope she will want to walk down the aisle, she will be sooo cute!!!

Happy Birthday Dad!

You are the greatest man I know. Thanks for putting up with me and reminding me to change my oil every 3000 miles, and getting my car registered, and inspected every year. Oh yes and how to change brake pads in a record 30 minutes. You have the best dance moves around, and can sing exactly like the old man from The Gaither's. You make me laugh just thinking of all the memories we have made over the years. You are one of a kind Dad, I love you!
