No energy to Post

A lot has gone on in our family over the last week and I ask that you keep us in our prayers and lift us up in this time. I promise to write more soon but for now enjoy the pics from this weekend.

Here is how I spent last night.

Making this:

and this:

If I did not have a few things to do tonight, I am sure I would be doing more of the above as well as another craft I have decided to do this holiday season. Stay tuned for more pics of my new crafts.

Oh and here are two more pictures from my birthday. This is the cake Cutler and Anthony bought for me. Cutler insisted on helping me blow out my candles.

Catching Up

Well last week is finally over. Customer Service Week, Cutler's birthday, my birthday, and my second camping trip. So customer service week was wonderful and I have received a ton of compliments from it. Cutler had a wonderful birthday as did I. Our second camping trip was great, we actually relaxed the whole time and it was definitely needed in my book. Here are a few pics from camping.

Very relaxing weekend with great friends and great food. I planned to run all weekend but got lazy and decided to just give in and relax. Weighing in this morning made me hold my breath but believe it or not I stayed exactly the same (and that is impressive due to the amount of food I consumed this weekend). We are planning a winter camping trip at the end of December and I am super excited about it. Cold weather, hot chocolate, camp fires, no Internet, no cell phone, what else could I possibly want?

Oh and one more picture:

we had ice cream sundaes at work one day and I forgot to take my ice cream scoop out of my purse so Anthony took a picture of it since I have been carrying it around for a week.

Turning 30

I finally did it, I turned 30. No idea what all the fuss is about either. I am fine with and really looking forward to what is ahead in life. I had a great 30th birthday, too! This week is customer service week nationwide and I am organizing the festivities within my office (well, I am the customer service manager so I guess it is part of my job description or something). We have played BINGO, had "happy hour", taken personality tests and worn items that reflected this. And on yesterday, my birthday, we had a decorate your cube contest. My cube (office) was "the destruction zone of my twenties," I had a blast doing it and everyone was so nice all day. I got home and Anthony had a new Ipod and cake for me. We went out to eat and started packing for our camping trip this weekend. The girls at work did let me take a few pictures of them so here they are.

Personality test...
Destruction Zone...
So, this thirty thing, I thought I was going to cry all day and absolutely flip out about being 30, but I didn't, I realized that I am in a great place in life and I can't wait to see what is in store for the next 30 years. People say your 30's are the best years of your life...if that is so these next few years are going to be awesome because I have already had some truly awesome years prior to now. I guess I am saying I worked myself up over nothing at all, I anticipated the worst and it was nothing more than a dud. Check out the pics on my Picasa web, the link is on the left hand side of the page, for more pics of Cutler's bday and soon to be pics of my bday as well.

3 Years Old!

Cutler's third birthday party was this weekend at SportsBlast, and boy did he ever have a blast.

Most of his friends and family were there and he played soccer for an hour, what more could he want.
I have to say this birthday in a box idea is wonderful, no more birthday parties at my house! We arrived with very few items in hand, the party room was already set up, the instructor was ready for the kids, pizza ordered, cake on the table, and a super friendly staff.

Well Honey and Nanny are coming through town today on their way back from Texas and I plan to meet them for lunch. This week is also Customer Service week at work and the crew is playing match the baby picture, bingo, decorate your cube, personality profile and a few other fun games.

If they let me take their picture I will be sure to post some!

A boy after my own heart...and Kid's Market

This week has been by far one of the most hectic weeks ever. Tuesday night Anthony, Cutler and I went to the Masonic Lodge in Alabaster for family night and dinner. We all met some of the people Anthony hangs with every week and had a good time. All week long we have been preparing for Cutler's 3rd birthday party which is tomorrow, OH MY GOSH! HE IS TURNING 3! OK I am better now. Last night Anthony took Cutler to his very first soccer fundamentals class ever and from the pictures and Cutler talking 100 miles per hour about it this morning, I take it he had the time of his life. See for yourself, and by the way, I think he is a natural athlete already. I couldn't be prouder.

And while Anthony and Cutler were playing soccer, I was...

With my buddy K!

Yep, you guessed it, I missed my sons very first soccer class to go to KIDS MARKET.
I told you guys it was a cult and there is no way I was losing a limb over soccer:)

Wish us luck tomorrow at the soccer birthday party.
