Mommy's Birthday Weekend

Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me...

It just doesn't seem right to be blogging about my own birthday, but I must do it nonetheless... how else can I post the adorably cute new pics of the Cade-man?! :)

Sunday was my official birthday... 27 years..."woah"  and "blessed" are the two words that describe this birthday best!! Both for obvious reasons... and I'm not much in the mood to go into the great deep about either, so woah and blessed will have to do!

My birthday weekend started off with Pei Wei take-out on Friday night... complete with a nice glass of yummy white wine after Cade-man went to sleep! One of the greatest things about Caden sleeping through the night... enjoying a glass of wine knowing that I have a good 12 hours before I have to feed Caden again! Love that! Oh and the sleep is great too!

Saturday morning we went to grab bagels and coffee at my favorite breakfast place... a bagel and schmeer is my breakfast love language!! And second to that would be scones... which I got on Sunday morning courtesy of KK and Albi!!

The rest of Saturday was pretty relaxed... pool time, family time...THEN... fun, fancy dinner out with KK and Albi. They came into town just for dinner and took us to Siena... a yummy Tuscan Italian place we have been wanting to try for some time... it was fabulous! If you are ever in the Austin-area... you must make a trip! It was such a treat to get to eat such yummy food with my favorite people in the world!!

At the restaurant we took a few pics outside to be festive! AND because Caden looked too cute in his outfit... I found him these seersucker pants at a consignment store and well... I just couldn't pass them up...Justin dressed Caden for the evening out and I think he did one heck of a job... what about you??

Thank goodness Caden got his daddy's eyes, so everyone can actually see those pretty eyeballs of his. Mommy's eyeballs... well that's another story and the reason kids called her Connie Chung in middle school... sigh!

I have NO idea where I got those squinty eyes from though... NOT my parents... NO WAY!!

I had to give the picture below a good crop so you could get a better look at my handsome young man!!

Sunday was business as usual... church, lunch, naps... EXCEPT... Nana and Paps treated me to a special birthday pedicure ... so while the boys napped and hung out by the pool Mommy got her toes did! :) And read about 100 pages of my new obsession... 

Yes... the Twilight series, I know, I know judge if you must... but it is good!! The second book is WAY better than the first... I can't wait for the third... I get it this weekend when I see KK! :)

KK and Albi surprised us and Caden with TONS of new stuff on Saturday... all I can say is, if you haven't bought stock in Toys 'R Us or Fisher Price... now is probably a great time! One of the things was this cutie-boy outfit... also seersucker!! He wore it to church on Sunday...

Serious Sam...
Best birthday present ever... this little boy right here... those legs...that smile... those goofy hunched shoulders... can't get enough of him! His daddy's pretty special too... after all I do have him to thank for the Cade-man... it takes two you know... :)

All in all it was a great birthday... isn't every birthday a good birthday though?! One more year of life to celebrate... Praise Jesus for another year, another day, another hour, another minute!

A special thanks to all of those who made my birthday extra special!!

Here's to another year!!
