Fill in the Blank Friday

It is that time of the week....

FILL IN THE BLANK FRIDAY!!!  PLease join in!

My greatest strength is - being happy. I know that no matter what life throws at me, I can take it.

My greastest weakness is - I am really hard on myself.

People always compliment me on - my smile.

If you found me procrastinating you'd probably find me - drinking wine and reading.

The most cozy place in all the world is - at my parents house, upstairs under one other their blankets.

Something new that I tried recently was - slushies with alcohol - K had them at her wedding rehearsal dinner- AMAZING!

This weekend I would like to - see friends and relax!

Baby K turns 1!

This weekend one of my very best friends in the entire world's little girl turns 1. 1!! I am so excited. B and I are going to the ATX to celebrate!

I cannot believe a YEAR has flown by so quickly.

Of course she is getting spoiled by "Aunty A" :)

So far:
A cute outfit
Crayon holder embroidered with her name
2 coloring books
3 reading books
New plates (mom stated that baby K needed new plates since she is feeding herself these days)
Balls (mom said she was really into rollowing balls around)

She also has her presents tied up with beautiful ribbon that has her name on it that I got from Royal Ribbons  (I bought Ribbon a while ago and used some for Christmas and the rest now). I would take a picture...but it has her full name on them. The ribbon truly makes it even better! It turned out perfectly!

My life

Sometimes I wake up and think "is this really my life?" I truly wake up every single morning feeling so blessed to be where I am.

I work at a job that I love. (Most of the time...everyone has bad days at work!)

I have the most supportive family who I love dearly. (I don't see my brother nearly enough, but cell phones are wonderful so we can keep in touch!)

I have friends who truly are the lifeline to my soul - they just GET me.

And I have a love. I have what I always wanted - a love - a great never ending love.

Somtimes I just have to check myself to remind myself that life is beautiful - wonderful and truly I am blessed. Sometimes the pettiness in wants, people and the media make me think that I don't have this incredible life - but I do.

No, I am not bragging, I am reminding myself to let go of the negatives because I have such an amazing life.

The Rodeo

I'm from Texas we have Rodeo. I know other states do too. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a BIG deal here.

B and I went with some friends to the BBQ Championship two weekends ago - Free GREAT food, free booze and Free live music - what isn't to love? (Free because we had tickets through work.)

Last night we went to the Rodeo and saw The Eli Young Band. It was fantastic - and free - Thanks work! :)
