Mother's Day

This Mother's Day was awesome for me. Saturday we took a drive to Monterey to have lunch and hang out for part of the day--it was a little chilly there, but we had a good time. Today we just hung around the house. Brad made us sandwiches so that we could take a little walk to the park and have a picnic. Lexxa is such a big girl and she rode her new Dora bike with training wheels instead of her tricycle! She is so good at it. We hung out under a tree and had our lunch and Lexxa played on the playground for a little while.
Logan just started walking and he became a pro at it over night it seems (I'll post a video of him walking soon)! It's so fun watching him grow up and watching his personality develop more and more every day. He's very inquisitive and just wants to check everything out.

Lexxa told me on Wednesday: "Mommy, we went to the paint place and made you's a surprise." She was talking about Glazed Creations in Morgan Hill, similar to Petroglyph. So, she kind of killed that surprise which Brad expected. It turns out that the gift wasn't ready by Mother's Day anyway, so I have yet to see what it looks like. According to Lexxa "We can't take it home yet because they have to put it in the oven first." So, I thought what she actually made would still be a surprise until yesterday or the day before she told me "we made you a cup and plate." Oh well, I'm still really excited to see it when it's ready! She's too funny.

And, even though Brad is the one who is home with the kids every day, he did such a great job of making it all about me this gotta love him for that!

I have so much to be thankful for this Mother's Day. Do I have to go back to reality tomorrow?

Memories Courtesy of Facebook

So, I won't use specific names on this post (at least I'll try not to). I recently connected with an old friend on Facebook and he is friends with a guy I went out with a couple of times (and my ex-boyfriend, but that's beside the point). I wouldn't have noticed that they were friends on Facebook until one of my girlfriends mentioned that she saw this guy's picture and that he was completely bulked up and owns a gym now. I couldn't believe she even mentioned his name because it brought back some crazy memories! Of course I had to log on to Facebook as soon as I got home to just see the picture of this guy. Yep, it sure was him (I never knew his last name by the way), and he looked hot!

It all just made me think back to a time before kids and before marriage, when I was completely care-free. I always went for what I wanted with no fear because it was fun! What's the worst that could happen? I would get rejected and move on. Those of you that knew me back then know that I had a lot of fun during that time...of course I felt much hotter and thinner then too! I only went out with this guy once or twice and nothing really came of it, but he was smokin hot (amongst other things, but this is a family blog!) and I couldn't help but think back to how crazy I was. I met Brad shortly after that and sure enough, the guy called! Doesn't that always happen? The guy calls you up after you find someone else.

I guess everything happens for a reason. But, it's fun to think back to those fun and crazy memories from the past! Maybe I should have a Flashback Friday just to talk about the crazy stuff I've done...or not, but maybe I'll make it a point to post some of my crazy stories once in a while.
