It's time for another...

PHOTO BLOG! I swear things have been C.R.A.Z.Y lately!! I have been letting entirely too much time go between blogs and then I become completely overwhelmed with the mere thought of having to write about ALL of it! So your gonna get a few paragraphs and the rest will be pictures. However, I pledge to write a blog every other day! You heard me folks! Every...Other...Day!! I know what your thinking! "No way is she going to do that!" I didn't say they were going to be amazing, prize-winning blogs, but there will be a blog. I started this blog mostly for a journal that my kids can look back on, and I feel like I am shorting them by not documenting things enough. Does that make any sense?

So, here we go!
It seems like we have been celebrating Leila's birthday for the entire month of March! Thank you to our friends who joined us at Buffalo Wild Wings for a small celebration here in St. Louis on her actual birthday. Our kids are so lucky to have such wonderful people who care about them. We truly are blessed!

Next, on March 14th at 12:32am my Great-Grandmother began her journey to Heaven. She was greeted by my Great-Grandfather Robert Young and her son Forrest Clay. Even though she didn't get to actually meet her youngest great-great grandson Alex, we all truly believe their paths crossed. My brother's flight did not get in till 2:00pm on the 14th, however, he and Alex were on United flight 1232! Coincidence?! I think not! She definitely passed them on her way!

While we were up in Kansas City, we had some fabulous quality time with family! I was sad that my sister-in-law Rebecca was unable to make the trip with my brother and Alex. It just didn't feel complete without her! Alex and Leila absolutely adore each other, I got to hang out with my brother and sister, and Josh got to chill with his BFF! It was good times had by all! Of course, Lisa wasn't sure when my dad would have all his kids and grandkids together at the same time, so she was quick to grab her camera and catch some fabulous shots!

After coming home for a few days, we were headed BACK up to KC for Leila's birthday party with family and friends in KC. Again, thank you to those that came and showered Leila with your love. For those of you who know me, know my obsession with hair bows! Well my Grandma found the mother of all hair bows!! OMG! Just take a look! It looks like Leilicious is wearing a Loofah on her head and I LOVE IT!!

Best thing since I last blogged: We have one week left of the biggest loser at work! I have reached my goal of 25lbs and I'm neck to neck with one of the Dr.'s for the 1st place prize! It will come down to that final weigh in!!
Worst thing since I last blogged: I'm pretty much exhausted and looking forward to staying home the next few weekends to get my energy back for our long weekend in Chi-town!

That bow is hilarious! My mom made us ridiculously large bows when we were little. I have some pictures of me in bows the size of my head. When I was far too old to be wearing them. :) Congrats on the 25 lbs! Impressive!

I think that may be why I'm SO obsessed with girly things for Leila, aka, bows, dresses, frilly, etc. because I was SO NOT GIRLY!!!

I jokingly told Josh the other night while watching "Little Miss Perfect" that I couldn't wait to enter the pagent scene (totally not my thing, and I would never do it) and he told me with my competitive nature I should NEVER put myself in that situation :)
