Hailey celebrated her first Easter!

If that's not a good reason to post, I don't know what is! =)

My baby girl has officially celebrated her very first Easter.

I am going to show you just how ghetto fabulous I am and post a picture of her picture with the Easter bunny. I didn't purchase the CD and I don't have a color scanner, so there!

Aside from my ghetto fab "pic of a pic", LOOK HOW CUTE! My baby smiled! I am so happy with her Easter bunny picture!

Hailey and I met up with "Auntie Dee" at the Galleria and I had completely forgotten I needed to have Hailey's picture taken w/ the Easter bunny. I had her dressed in that cute little white eyelet tank, jean shorts, legwarmers (Yes... LEGWARMERS LOL) and her cute little pink Vans. You can't really see anything but the shirt, and a little bit of the legwarmers but I would have been happy if the rest of the outfit was showing! It's not a fancy easter outfit, but I still loved it!

I loved it so much I happened to take this pic before we left that morning...

 On to Easter!

The Easter bunny paid Hailey a little visit...
Some how the Easter Bunny stuffed animal Auntie Jennifer got her hopped up in the basket too! =)

Hailey getting ready to dig into her basket

Ohhhhh Ahhhhhh

LOL... she's SO excited.

Daddy made us pancakes for breakfast... MMMMMMM! Never did I think those words would form a sentence together!

After breakfast, we got ready and headed over to "Great Aunt Keem's" to CELEBRATE!

We are SO festive... not only did we wear almost the exact same thing, but we both wore BLACK on Easter! Kinda sad, huh?

Me and my little princess

Happy little family!

Hailey had another first on this day... SWINGING! She loved it.

I feel so bad, I meant to get at least ONE pic of Hailey with some of her cousins (some of her other cousins were camping and werne't able to be there) and I didn't. Bad mommy!

Hailey's first Easter was a "great success"! I hope she enjoyed it as much as we did.

The Big 3-1!

As much as I would like to, I guess I can't let my 31st birthday slip by without mention =)

April 7th was my 31st birthday. I tried and tried to just let it creep by without notice but my friends and family weren't letting that happen.

Everyone kept asking what I wanted to do, but I couldn't think of a thing. Birthdays are a little different than they used to be. Not because I can't go out and party like I used to ;) But more because, well 31 seems kind of on the "downhill" LOL I know that sounds horrible but I don't feel like I have any birthdays to look forward to anymore. It's just a number, oh well! As long as I can celebrate with the people I love, I will be OK!

People were suggesting "get a sitter and go to dinner w/ you hubby?". WHAT?!?!??! No way... my first birthday with Hailey (outside my belly) and I wasn't about to pawn her off. I was 100% sure I wanted her there to help me celebrate =)

Thursday, the "actual birthday" rolled around and it started off a little blah, as I wasn't really looking forward to it. Strange, I have never felt that way about a birthday. For some reason 31 didn't feel special, I wasn't excited, I just wanted the day to be OVER.

I am a lucky girl and I have some special people in my life who weren't about to let my birthday slip by un-noticed.

I dropped Hailey off at my aunts and when I arrived she had a giant bottle of wine, a pretty plant and a card holding some cold hard cash waiting for me! She knows me well =)

The day rolled on and my Facebook was FILLED with birthday wishes... I honestly didn't think that many people cared. I am a lucky girl.

I went to lunch with two of my best friends... Chili's of course. A birthday isn't complete without chips and salsa! And yes... I made room to stuff myself with some enchilada soup and a yummy salad.

When I got back to work (FULLLLL as could be) my boss handed me a gift certificate for another favorite of mine, SUSHI!!!!!!!! I headed to a friends office to help her with something (Work-related, if you can't believe that ;) she says to me "did you see your cake?" to which I replied "Huh?" and she says "OOPS! I think I spoiled a surprise". When I got back to my desk my boss and another co-worker had busted out a giant "pig pickin'" cake. I was so surprised (well for the most part LOL I had kinda heard something about it already".

By the time I got home, I didn't even want to think about dinner. Doesn't sound like I ate THAT much but it wasn't sitting well. I'm normally a super healthy eater, so eating some of the things I don't eat regularly all in the same day made my stomach ache! I wasn't hungry so Craig whipped up a frozen pizza LOL it smelled so good I had to have a couple slices... and you can't have pizza without a couple of beers. I know most people don't think of frozen pizza as much of a birthday celebration meal but it was perfect for me. Craig and I have a special place in our hearts for frozen pizza LOL we often celebrate holidays that way! I sat back, relaxed and hung out with my two FAVORITE people for the rest of the evening!!!!

Finally, the weekend rolled around. Craig Hailey-sat so I could get my hair cute and my friend Deidra met me there and her husband came to our house to "help" Craig. Deidra and I headed from my hair appointment to get pedicures. MUCH needed. I never have time to do my toes anymore! I know it sounds crazy, just takes a few minutes but I am a busy girl and I rarely get the time.

Later we met up with some family for dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. MMMMM more chips and salsa AND of course some beer =)

Me and my girl!

Me and my other girl ;) 

Me and my man!

Just for the fun of it

Maybe I will write a little blog post! =) I know they are few and far in between these days but I have a few pics that you might like to see.

If we are friends on Facebook, you may have already seen some of these.

Big girl jumping in her "Jump a Roo"

After bath time... LOVE this pic!

We had brunch at my aunts where I took advantage of some other people being around to get a picture of Craig and I... it's been awhile!

Mimosas were flowin'

YAY... a family picture!

And one of Mommy with her Hailey!

There hasn't been much going on, but I can't lie, that's the way I like it! =) I am sure the summer is going to get crazy, so I am enjoying this while I can!
