Birthday Weekend

Happy Birthday to me.  Friday was my birthday and it was a great day overall.
On Thursday we went to the Bees game as part of my birthday celebration because Robert and Baby were flying to California first thing Friday morning.

Here are a couple of pictures during the game.



Then we headed to dinner and it was enjoyed by all.


On my birthday Robert gave me these:
I was surprised by my best friend with these:

The weather was beautiful and I was able to grill our dinner:
The following day we headed over to some friends to celebrate:


and the kids even got a treat with candy sushi

I am grateful for my friends and family with all the birthday wishes. Not too bad for turning 38!
Now the birthday rotation will begin... Caroline will have a birthday in two weeks, two weeks after her birthday is Drew's birthday.  So we are in for some crazy weekends.  Hope you had a great weekend and enjoying this beautiful weather.

Emotions...today I feel....

Today, I felt like I was walking in a cloud all day.  Not really here, not really paying attention to anything, not really getting anything done. Kinda like the kid who is kicking the stone around in the middle of the street kind of feeling.

Okay... I have to back up.  On Sunday we found out that someone very dear to us in our family passed away.  She was battling cancer, we thought it was in remission but something happened 8 weeks ago and her health took a turn for the worse. She is now no longer suffering, she is with her maker, she is loved and will be terribly missed.

With the news, I have been left feeling empty. Not really knowing what I am supposed to be doing...my head in the clouds.  During the beginning of the week I was fine, I felt like I was handling everything okay...but now I just feel lost.  I understand that I am grieving.  But there is something more and I can not figure it out. I miss her and I am sad.

With my head in lala land. when the door bell rang I was confused. What? Did I forget something? Did I have an appointment that I forgot agian?  I was not expecting a visitor...oh no another solicitor.... so I answer the door. To my surprise  I was handed this....

Beautiful flowers delivered to my house for ME and my family!!  I started to cry.  The poor delivery man probably thought I was crazy.  I thanked him and I continued to cry.  My amazing friends Juile and Cheri sent me flowers to cheer us up. I can not express the gratitude I have right now for this simple and kind gesture.  It is amazing that we live thousands of miles apart...but today I felt a huge hug from them today... Just when I needed it.  THANK YOU SO MUCH JULIE AND CHERI!

I am still in mourning but healing slowly with the love and support from friends and family from across the country I will get through this.  It just sucks...in the last week I have had friends dealing with Death. I realize that it is part of life.  But it still sucks.

Tomorrow... will be a better day. It will be a better day knowing I have a healthy loving family and that I have AMAZING friends that surround me to help make me a stronger person to get through this tough time.

Happy Easter

I just got back from walking with a group of friends. It was a great way to get my Saturday going.  We have so much planned for the weekend.  Hopefully I can remember to take some pictures.  Hope you are able to spend some time with your family this weekend too.

I just wanted to share a card I made using the Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Shapes. I used the Teresa Collins Bunnies Shape and Teresa Collins Basics.  Paper is the Teresa Collins Designs Sweet Afternoon Collection.


Hope you have a great Easter.
