Birthday Boy!

Yesterday was my grandson Cameron's 2nd birthday. So all three of the grandbabies went to lunch at Panera's and shopping at Target. And we picked "flowers". LOL These three melt my heart. Happy Birthday Cameron! You have the best smile and laugh in the world and seeing the three grandbabies play together and love on each other the way they do is priceless. And that's all I wanted to say today so have a great day!!

I've been off planting pansies....

I really have no excuses as to why I've been missing in action on my blog the past few weeks. Well, my computer died and I had to get a new one and I've been playing around with it trying to learn it. It's a IMac and I've never had one before so it's a little different from my old computer but it's so much fun! :-) So hang with me while I figure out things like how to get to all of my photos(for some reason I can only see a few and the rest I have to figure out by their numbers). I'll figure it out because that kind of thing bugs me until I get an answer to it. Haha.. I'm such a nerdy geek!!
Anyway the girls came over to help me plant a few pansies in some pots. I just couldn't wait to plant a flowers. They had so much fun but I think they liked digging in the dirt more than planting the flowers. LOL
I hope everyone is enjoying the Spring. Spring is one of my favorite times of year and here is what one of my favorite authors(Karen Kingsbury) wrote in her newsletter today:
You have one chance to write the story of your life! One chance to love, one chance to laugh, one chance to truly live! Choose life this spring, and make sure to hug the people you love. The characters in your life story won’t be there forever.

Thinking Spring and another year older....

So today's my birthday! Yes, I am officially another year older and much wiser. LOL Thanks bloggy friends for being there for me this past year and making me smile when at times the last thing I wanted to do was smile. But you guys sent me funny emails to lift my spirits and checked in on me even when I wasn't being the best bloggy friend out there. Bloggy friends are the best, they really are.......So I am very hopeful for my new year and I am here to tell you that you don't actually die of a broken heart but you learn that you are stronger than you ever thought and that God is the one constant that will never leave you. So that's enough of the serious and mushy stuff....LOL
Yesterday, I was running around doing errands and it was sunny and beautiful out and when I came home these flowers were waiting for me. The photos were taken on my cell phone so the quality is not that great. Remember how I watched little Lexi a few weeks back, well her Mommy and Daddy sent me these beautiful flowers and cute note for my birthday! The note says "Dear westside mom, thanks for taking great care of me. Hanging with you was terrific. Maddie, Sas and Cleo are the greatest. If you ever want company, my toys are packed. Mom and Dad say thanks too: we wish you an especially great birthday. Love , Lexi Cute huh? It made my day!!

So what are my plans today? Well, I'm going to Red Lobster with my Dad and family for lunch and than I'm taking my little girls to the creamy whip(today's the official opening of the creamy whip) for ice cream and than I am going downtown to my son's restaurant tonight and meet the people who mean the most to me and celebrate my birthday! A busy and full day but it should be fun. And I bought a new outfit to wear tonight. I'm a big TJ Maxx shopper, I love a deal but every once in awhile I splurged and that's what I did this week. One of my favorite stores is White House Black Market and this Spring they have added pink to their black and white clothes!! know I'm all about pink. So I bought the following top and accessories to wear tonight and I'm not going to feel one bit guilty about spending the money!

Isn't this top just so pretty? It's so soft too but I don't do off the shoulder and you can wear it covering the shoulders and it looks great!!!
Than I got the matching clutch purse! They had the cutest tiny pink purses but I need something bigger to hold my camera and cell!! I love it!
And than I really did it and bought these strappy sandals(I just hope I don't kill myself in these, LOL). I'm wearing jeans with the whole ensemble...haha.....I'm sure I'll have some pics of it all put together tonight!! I hope everyone has a great weekend planned and this next pic has nothing to do with my birthday or anything else but it just screams Spring! This is Target's(I heart Target) new line coming out. Is this not the cutest stuff???? Oh how I wish I would have waited to buy my bike.....I love that bike!! Have a great weekend everyone!!
