A 1st Birthday Party!!

Brady's 1st birthday party was absolutely amazing!! And the outpouring of love that I felt made it one of the best days of my life... so far!

When I got to my parent's house, everything was perfectly decorated, all the food was prepared, and I was told to just enjoy the party. My mom, grandmother, and father had done an amazing job with everything and I just can't thank them enough for all they did!!!!




The nautical theme turned out beautifully. My friends were more than generous with their gifts and I am so appreciative of them driving all the way to celebrate Mr Man's first birthday.

It was an absolute blast to have had them there. And I am pretty sure Mr Man, could he have thanked them all himself, would've said the same thing!

Have you ever met a stranger?

"Nope!" Was my response. And that, my friends, is the truth.

My mom tells stories how I would just walk up to strangers and start talking to them and singing to them.

Last night, my girlfriend E and I went out to dinner, and by the end of the night, we had hooked up with this fabulous table of 5 women and 1 guy. It was wonderful to get to spend time with old friends, and meet new ones.

The DJ even bought me a beer, just so we would stay around and keep the party going :)

That, my friends, is a heck of a way to spend a Thursday evening :)

Hope you all have a GOOD Friday!

Happy Good Friday!!!

Got this from JulieQ and about peed my pants. ENJOY!!

Maybe I'm Ok?

With being alone?

There has been some adjustment, going from a 7 + year relationship to nothingness, but as the dust clears, I think this may be exactly what I need.

This coming Friday will be my very first weekend ALONE. And I am talking ALONE people!

Yes, I am having dinner with fabulous girlfriends... but coming home, later that evening, to a VERY empty house is going to be a sobering experience.

I think when you are married, you never really think about single people. I sure didn't anyway? I always thought their life was glamorous, in some sick way?

No one to have to talk to, or ask what they want for dinner, or cater to when their sick. But now... maybe its a blessing to always have someone to share your thoughts with, to have someone to get you theraflu when you feel like you are knocking on deaths door, or maybe... someone wants to cook YOU dinner?

Maybe it is a blessing both ways?

Eh... who knows.

Life is a learning experience (or that is what I tell myself these days, anyway) and each day is a new journey.

Sometimes its bumpy, sometimes its fun, other times it just plain sucks. But... there are ALWAYS lessons to be learned.

The New Pad

Is coming along nicely :)

Hey... its no Taj Mahal... but its home, and B and I are lovin' it!!!

Here is the best part... the view!!!

The fireplace... which B has found he loves to eat... yummy!
Mr Man's new (Giants themed) room! WOOT!

My bedroom



And Kitchen... fabulous job on the cabinets L!

There are some things that I still haven't gotten used to like:

A) climbing 8,003 stairs to get to my apartment, all while carrying a diaper bag, a filled purse and a 23lb small man - but hey, look on the bright side - in 2 months my ass is gonna be smokin'! Feel the burn baby, feel the burn!!!

B) I have yet to figure out how to carry 2 loads of garbage and said man and diaper bag and purse DOWN the stairs - that one still has to be figured out? Suggestions?

C) I am loving cleaning this place. Um... hello vacuuming 5 min. Walking all of 3 minutes to the washer and dryer and dishes for one (sometimes throw a bottle in there) can I get a hell yeah!

D) I just got TV last night, and to be honest, it was kind of nice not having the option to hear the depressing news. I have no DVR (gasp!) and no cable to speak of. I have bunny ears (the newest model) but still. Humble pie for one. Thanks!

Overall, B and I are adjusting well. It has been a struggle, and I have fiigured out I royally SUCK at being alone, but over time I am sure things will be alright! The first few months are always an adjustment period. I am just trying to look on the bright side of every situation, including this one.

Ciao Darlings!
