Birthday, Baseball & St. Patty's Day......

March 17th was St. Patricks Day. It was also hubs birthday. We had his family over to celebrate. His mom makes his favorite cake every year. Chocolate and mint chip ice cream layered cake. SEVEN layers. So good! I wish I got a picture of it. In fact, I didn't take very many pics that day.

It was busy with two different baseball games. Nate & Lo had their first games of the season. The weather was not great at all. Bone chilling cold for the first morning game and rain and hail for the later game. I passed out all my & hubs sweatshirts, thermals, jackets, gloves, hats, and umbrella's to the family for the second game. We were prepared.......Come what may! The game was called by the 5th inning....Too much rain!

It was fun and crazy, no doubt.

I think hubs had a good birthday overall.

March Madness....


I've been pretty busy this month. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. There have been reports to help write, running to practices for the boys little league everyday, and birthday parties to host. Last weekend my family came over and I had a ham and potato dinner to celebrate my dad's birthday, (as well as the hubs and me). March is a busy month for birthdays. Tomorrow I'm having the hubs family over to celebrate his birthday. We also have the first two baseball games of the season to watch....Logan's at 9am and Nate's at 5pm. Next weekend I'm traveling and co-hosting a ladies luncheon for my cousin who is about to have her first daughter any day now. Let's hope she has her "birth" day after the party...hahaha. Pretty soon when I have a moment to breath, March will be over. To add the icing on the cake, I'm currently sporting a finger brace on a sprained finger and my knee is giving me hell from an old injury. My mom seems to think it's my meniscus.....Ugh! More doc appointments to follow.

I will admit, even though I go a little crazy and stress out some when my plate is full, (or overflowing), I think it's better than being lonely and not having anything to do at all, right?!

Flowers to Brighten my Day....

The hubs left for work this morning and he knew I woke up not feeling to well.

About 3 hours later I hear the front door open and I called out, "Hello?"

When he's gone to work, he's gone for hours. I don't ever expect a surprise visit during the day.

Hubs responded back and asked where I was.

"In the laundry room."

I turned and he had flowers for me and said he had hoped it put a smile on my face....

it did.

Hittin' the Beach in March.......

I knew it was going to be a warm weekend here...in the mid 70's.....and in March. I asked the hubs to take us to my favorite place on the planet. The beach! We had some family come join us and we enjoyed a picnic, cupcakes, the sand, the surf and warm sun. It truly was a fabulous day and the kiddos had a blast.

Here are a bunch of (unedited) pics to enjoy :o)

Flowers & Faces..........

These freesia's were hand picked by my grandfather from his own yard. Arn't they lovely? I love flowers. The glass I put them in seemed fit. I found it, (plus three others), at the thrift store.

Awww, my sweet faced girl. Isn't she a beauty?


She's a firecracker!

My Birthday Month....

Today marks the first day of my birthday month. I know....kinda silly right? It's this thing that my hubs does every March. He spoils me even more during this month and I can't complain. He's a great guy, what can I say.

The last couple of months have been somewhat challenging and I'm hoping things will start to look up. I looked out the window this morning and saw a rainbow. There's a good start! This month is also the hubs birthday. Our birthday's are 10 days apart. He chooses not to make it a big deal like I do. I guess that's fine, but I try to make his day a special one.

Some fun things are planned ahead. I can't wait!

Welcome March!
