Happy 5th Birthday Baby Girl!

This day 5 years ago I was at Medical City Hospital in labor & delivery welcoming you into this world. Everyone was there! And I mean everyone! Your Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends, etc...It was an amazing moment in time! You we're the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. It was unbelievable how much you could love someone that you'd never even met. And here we are 5 years later and in just a few weeks you'll be starting Kindergarten. You'll be in Kindergarten, I can't believe it! I have a 5 year old! Man, time flies! But you're still as special today as the first day I met you, if not more special. I love you so much! More than you could ever imagine.

Tuesday Thoughts


  • Why do people think just b/c I have tattoos, multi-colored hair, & I dress a little different sometimes that's it's okay to just let it all out and cuss and say awful things in general conversation when you don't even know me??? I was getting my passport today and the guy assisting me was talking crap about the lady behind me in line saying she was a crazy bitch and that she comes in there all the time trying to get her daughter a passport and she brings different guys in w/her all the time trying to say that they're her father. She was of Asian descent and I guess didn't speak English very well and he was making fun of her for that as well; that she never understands him and he just has to end up sending her away. My eyes just got huge and I was speechless. I would never talk to a stranger that way no matter what they looked like. People are so judgmental.
  • Speaking of getting my passport. The Government is absolutely ridiculous. $110 for a passport book. $15 for the photo. $25 for a processing fee. I would've provided a photo but they made it very clear that they would rather take it for you b/c your head can't be too big, it can't be too small, it has to be perfectly centered and facing the camera exactly, your head can't be tilted slightly, the image can't be rotated, there can't be a glare on your glasses, the background has to be plain, the photo can't be too dark, the contrast can't be too high, it has to be the proper color, it can't be over or under exposed, there can't be shadows in the background or shadows on your face, it has to be the correct resolution, it has to focused properly, etc. And a $25 processing fee...I'll process it for you. I'll enter my own information. I'll file it for you. Again, ridiculous.
  • I'm sad that Amy Winehouse died. I loved her. Her music. Her quirkiness. Her bee hive. Her style. Such a tragedy to die at such a young age. I send much love and prayer to her family. Your children are not supposed to die before you.
  • Trey Canard... if you've broken your legs 3x this year already...maybe Motocross isn't the sport for you.
  • I love you Steak Finger Basket from DQ. I know, I know... I shouldn't be eating that. I had one for lunch today! I need to get back on track. I've been doing so good w/getting in shape for our vacay and this weekend totally blew it for me! I don't know why I did that. My bad.
  • Note to self: Make sure you put Elvis' shoes on the right foot so they don't rub his feet raw and give him blisters to the extent that he can't wear shoes.

Weekend Rewind

This weekend was full of maxin' & relaxin'! I told myself I wasn't going ANYWHERE or doing ANYTHING! And I didn't! Every weekend we've had somewhere to go or someone to see. Also, I've been dieting for weeks on end so I wanted to eat lots of good food too. My goal this weekend was to lay out by the pool and have some drinks, eat lots of good food, & watch a ton of movies. Goal achieved! :)

Friday Kennedy went back to her Dad's and Lindsey was working so me and E we're all by our lonesomes. We went and ate a slice at Joe's Pizza for din and then we came back and watched Rango. Pretty cute movie. E fell in love w/it and watched it about a thousand times this weekend.After we watched Rango we went swimming. E had a blast! Apparently the maintenance left the water hose on and he was squirting anything and everything. He didn't even really swim b/c he was so fascinated by the water hose.That was pretty much it for Friday: Pizza, movie, & swimming. Saturday Lindsey got up early to meet his Dad to go ride so once again E and I were all by our lonesomes. I got up and drank my morning cup of joe while watching the Lincoln Lawyer w/Matthew McConaughey in all his hotness. Bad ass movie by the way.After my movie was over E and I headed up to Whataburger and got some breakfast. I got a potato taquito w/cheese and some hash brown sticks and a Dr. Pepper. Told you I was pigging out this weekend. Just wait it gets even worse! After breakfast we just chilled around the house. I cleaned a little bit. Did some Shredding. As soon as Lindsey got back we went to In and Out Burger and I got a Double Double (Animal Style) w/crispy fries and a chocolate shake! Ouch the calories in that chocolate shake! E feel asleep while we were out so we came back and ate and put him down for a nap and we napped ourselves. After we all woke up we went down to the pool for a swim and some beers. After we went swimming we went and rented some movies for E and we got some dinner. We decided on Taco Cabana. I got a chicken soft taco, a beef soft taco, & a personal order of bean & cheese nachos. Oh my goodness it was so good. Needless to say I was totally stuffed at this point! I couldn't move so I just went to sleep! Easy solution. Sunday I let the boys sleep in and I got up and got ready for church. Finally woke them up about 10am and we headed out. After church we went out to eat w/our pastor and his wife and their little girl who's about Elvis' age. We went to Ameila's in Rowlett. I totally chowed on the hot sauce chips like they were going out of style and then I had 3 cheese enchiladas, beans, & rice. Grace and Elvis made a HUGE mess; they're probably never going to let us come back! Lol! Oh well...it was worth it b/c it was deelish! After Lunch we headed back to Frisco and E took a nap while watched yet another movie...Born on the 4th of July w/Tom Cruise...an oldie but a goodie!After our movie and E woke up we headed to Toys R' Us to get a Little Tikes Basketball Goal. At church E was going crazy over the basketball set up there and Toys R' Us had them on sale for like $25 so we went and got him one.After Toys R' Us we went and got some froyo. Yummy! I got Birthday Cake w/Strawberries and little pieces of Cheesecake. Cake on top of cake = heaven. After our froyo trip we went swimming again and had some more drinks poolside. I was a total lush this weekend and pruned from all the swimming. We came back from swimming, gave E a bath and headed out for a drive to get him to sleep and to pick us up some dinner. Got Jack In the Box... Breakfast Jack, Curly Fries, & a Dr. Pepper. Breakfast for dinner is the best!

So that's it. That was my gluttonous weekend! I didn't do anything all weekend long but eat, sleep, & swim and it was great. Just what the doctor ordered...a weekend of relaxation.

Congratulations Holly & Drew!

This past weekend we attended the nuptials of our friends Holly & Drew. The ceremony was at the First United Methodist church in downtown Ft. Worth. The church was beautifully ornate. The service was perfect! Holly looked absolutely amazing!

From the ceremony we headed over to the D.R. Horton Tower for the cocktail hour while the wedding party took their pics. Open bar + hor d'ourves = dangerous.

The reception was located in the same tower just different room and it was absolutely stunning. Super high ceilings, huge crystal chandeliers, mirrored walls, great view of down town Ft. Worth. The ambiance was great...candles & flowers everywhere. It was a pretty traditional reception...dinner, drinks, dancing, toasting, cake cutting, etc. Except for the fact that Holly is Egyptian and they did the lifting of the bride & groom in the chairs... pretty cool; not sure what it symbolizes, but it was neat! For the dinner they had an open pasta bar which was absolutely delicious but my retarded ass had a little too many glasses of wine and forgot to put the sauce on my pasta and didn't notice until I started eating it and thought it tasted a little bland. I ate it anyway. Oh well.

Here's some pics from the event. Excuse my photography skills. The pics were taken from my Blackberry and like I said... I was inebriated so that didn't help too much either! :)
