Whynot Friday- Birthday Edition!!

Ok so I can never make a blog in time for Whatnot Wednesday so I thought I would have a Whynot Friday cause well why not? J  I also do not have one of those cute buttons for this either so lets just pretend that there is one here.  Ok so I cannot promise this will be an every Friday thing but it will be this Friday. J Please bear with me I am kinda in a silly mood.  Well this is my birthday edition for this Whynot special. 

-         So the day of my birthday I was woke up by the sweetest birthday wishes from all of my boys.  Singing Happy Birthday to me, what a way to start my day!
-         After I got out of the shower to my surprise there were a couple of cards and some presents waiting for me!  My favorite was the cards, I don’t know why but I just love cards, they make me feel special!  Josh has gotten me a pair of shoes I had wanted but probably would not have gotten.  And my sweet SIL got me 2 5th Ave candy bars.  I just love those things.  We had a conversation one day about our favorite nostalgic candy bars and I loved these things as a kid…who am I kidding I still do!
-         When I got to work one of my friends there Kimmons made me a very YUMMY breakfast…eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and chocolate gravy!  What you have never heard of chocolate gravy before either, yeah well one day we were talking about breakfast foods and she mentioned this and I was like WHAT?  She said it was like gravy but chocolate!  Ok can never go wrong there.  Well it was really, really YUMMY!!!
-         Oh I almost forgot to tell you about my umm first birthday wish when I got to work!  So I was sitting at my desk when I heard this noise behind me….I turned around to look, nothing.  Turned around again and something dropped, when I saw something I thought at first it was a wasp and went to go get the fly swatter.  To my surprise the wasp started climbing up the wall…wait what they don’t normally do that!  Oh that is because it was a MASSIVE ROACH!!!!  Oh how I despise these things, I quickly got a can of Raid and sprayed the mess out of that thing!  Happy Birthday to me! J
-         Well my sweet hubby took me to lunch, we went to Zaxby’s because they have this fabulous birthday cake milkshake and well since it was my birthday, he thought I needed one.  I really enjoyed getting to eat lunch with him because we do not get to do that very often and I really cherished that!  When I got back to work I had a very delicious cake waiting for me that a co-worker had make for me! Mmmmm!
-         My birthday fell on a Wednesday so when we got back from church Jessica had made me another cake!  Yes I was on a sugar high for the next couple of days…yeah I am still on one!  Well she let the boys help make my cake, which I love and they wanted to put sprinkles on it cause a cake without sprinkles is just not a cake. J  As Jessica turned around to help them Taylor had the sprinkle container turned upside down in his mouth!  Well then that just made Caleb want to do that too and before I knew it they were trying out every sprinkle thing before they put it on my cake.  I guess I should be thankful for that J 
-         So all in all I had such an amazing birthday and I can not thank everyone enough for the calls, cards and wonderful FB messages!!  Hope you have a great Whynot Friday!!!

Mother's Day reminds me how blessed I am

You know when I first found out that I was pregnant I did not know what to expect, I mean for most of my life all I really wanted to be was to be a mom.  I can remember a conversation with my grandpa where I told him how I did not think college was for me and that I knew someday I would be a mom and wanted to stay at home.  Well about 3 years later after that conversation my wish came true and I would never want it any other way.  Now at the current time I do not get to stay at home but we are working (for – remove) hard to get me back home!  Being a mom has taught me so many wonderful things about myself; although not all the time did I think they were all wonderful.  I have 3 amazing boys in my life and they bless me everyday and I feel so lucky to be the wife of one and the mother to the other two.  Now there are days I feel like I could probably pull all my hair out but when I hear just 4 words it is all wiped away…I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!! 
Poor Caleb had to be the little guinea pig while I tried to work out all of my issues and then come to find I will work on those for the rest of my life.  I don’t want to sound like every thing is perfect in our family, but I do feel so blessed.  Sometimes I wonder if this is really the life I am living!  Well I hope all you mothers out there had a great Mother’s Day and even if you are not a mom yet I pray you still had a great day!

If you do not mind I would love to tell you a bit about my weekend.  It started on Friday; I rushed home to try to make my self look decent for my date night with my hubby!  We went to one of my favorite restaurants…The Melting Pot and it was so yummy!  We went with some great friends so that made for some great birthday memories! Anyone who knows me would be very proud to know that I ate a bite of lobster and part of a strawberry…yes I said strawberry and can say that I still do not care for either one. J

Well Saturday Josh took the boys out for a daddy day! I just love that he is such a great father to them, I hope they grow up to be half the man that Joshua is.  Anywho so what would any girl do when she has about 3 hours of time to herself…watch a chick flick, take a long bath, paint my nails no rather I spent the entire 3 hours cleaning!  I put away winter clothes and went through some of my own clothes to toss out.  We went to the pond while daddy had to go to work for a little while, where Caleb jumped into the pond went all the way under and popped back up! He was very proud of himself…mommy was a tad nervous and well you should ask his uncle who was in the water with him how nervous he was J
Sunday morning the boys surprised me and when I say surprised I actually mean Taylor kept trying to tell me what I got and the kind of card I got J My favorite thing was Josh let the boys pick out my mother’s day card and well they decided to get me a birthday Avatar singing card!  I loved it because it is what they picked out J Oh and I finally got my flower from Taylor that he had been telling me about since last Thursday.  My 3 boys did the cleaning that I did not get to on Saturday and Josh’s dad and sister cooked an awesome dinner!  All the boys helped clean off the table.  So yes I can say I had a wonderful, amazing, blessed day!!!
