Turning 30

To my surprise Nick planned a little getaway for my 30th birthday this weekend. We flew to S. Padre for a relaxing weekend. It was the first time for me to leave Vivi and tears were definitely shed when I walked away from them both at the airport. After throwing up on the plane (motion sickness) and carrying what looked like to be a doggy bag of puke out, I was ready to enjoy a weekend with nothing to do. It wasn't quite hot enough to pull out the swim suits but we made the most out of our trip. We walked along the beach, went to a movie, got couples massages ate, slept, ate, slept, you get the picture.
When we arrived home I was just dying to see the kids. Austin was taking a poop when I got to my mil's and the first thing he yelled from the bathroom was, "mom, you get me a toy"? I can leave to go get milk at the store and be gone 10 minutes and he will run up to me and squeeze my neck acting like he hasn't seen me all day. I leave for 2 days and all he can think about is a cool toy. So silly!

I didn't take my big hoopty camera with us but I managed to get a few with my camera phone.

I thank Nick for making my 30th birthday not such a dreaded event after all.

Lots of love

So I have been a slacker when it comes to blogging. Things have been crazy busy around here. Nick is still looking for a new luck yet. Keep praying for us, please.
We did find time to enjoy a week full of all things heart. Austin and I made a heart lunch this week, heart rice krispy treats, heart pancakes and we ordered a heart shaped pizza tonight.
I realize the doritos are not heart shaped...wasn't sure how to pull that one off.

I think the heart shaped pizza is a little pathetic if you ask me but Austin thought it was cool.

Austin also had his Valentine's party at school. We made these cute owls
and decorated cookies.

Teachers Pet

We also had a dinner party celebrating Heart day with our friends at church....thanks to Faith! She put together a cool slide show of pictures of all the couples before they were married and of their wedding day. We also played the newlywed game. Learned a lot about our friends and our spouses. Here are some pics from the beautiful, fun night. I know there are no pics of me and Nick on here. My friend took the couples pictures.
Loved the tables!

The sweets

Me and Faith, the party planner....can I ask one more time what happened to your arm? Just kidding.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's day!
