The Birthday Proposal

Love is in the air, let me tell ya. I’m engaged, about 70% of my friends are engaged, and now the most important person in my life is also engaged- my mama!  
Today is her 43rd birthday, and her amazing boyfriend, (whom somehow sticks around even though my mom and I probably drive him bonkers…) decided to propose. With some careful planning and sly fox-ness, we were able to pull it off. I am so so so glad I was able to snap some candids.

   

  

  

  

  

  

And here is my favorite. I believe it’s most likely my favorite because it shows how happy we truly are. We have been through so much. Things we didn’t think we would be able to stay strong enough for, and yet here we are. Lucky and in love with a beautiful life ahead of us. This past year has been one for the books.

  
Of course, my monkey was jealous he wasn’t in the pictures, so he made me take some of him on the way home. Hee hee.

Easter Sunday Adventures!

Happy Easter! It is such an amazing day! I know everyone is busy with family, friends, and the Easter bunny, but I thought I would share some pictures of our wonderful day! 

We started the day with lunch at Geoffrey’s grandparents house! My baby boy was so cute today! 

  
  
Next, we all went and played some basket ball and enjoyed this lovely weather! Look at my handsome boys!

  
After that, we went to see my mama at work, and it’s a crazy beautiful drive to her work!

  
And we kind of pigged out a little bit….vegetarian pizza, 4 cheese pizza, veggie rolls and Cajun salmon rolls!

   

  
  

Had a little childhood throw backs, and played dig dug!

  
Now we are just relaxing, watching movies and being beyond thankful for today. I hope everyone had an amazing Easter Sunday!

Weddings & Family Fun Snapshot

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather! Well, it’s beautiful here in Texas I don’t know about in other countries where some of my readers are from. But, I hope it’s as nice there as it is here! It’s a windows open to let the sunlight in kind of day!
The only time I can ever really write is when my Monkey is asleep, so this one will be a fast post! 

  
Yesterday, I got to attend one of my future family member’s weddings, and it was BEAUTIFUL! You could literally feel the love! I’ve only been in one other wedding, so it was nice to attend a wedding for the first time! I took a trillion pictures so I thought I should post a few so you all could see the beauty in the details of my favorite things!

Here are a few of the flower arrangements. I’m in love.  

   
   

 

Here is our seats, even little Jace had a place card. Heehee.  
This is where I spent most of the reception because I decided to wear a little black dress when it was 40 degrees outside!!

  

And of course we had to get some family pictures! Rarely do we all dress up this much, so it was necessary! 😉

   
   

And now Jace is awake. Perfect timing, gotta go change some diapers & do some mommy duties.

Farmington New Mexico / Durango Colorado Snapshot 

Hello hello hello! 

First off, I am thrilled to be writing this. I previously had a blog titled “lifeofmamamia” but ended up deleting it thinking I wouldn’t have time to post. I quickly realized when you love doing something, you make time for it. Crafting, creating, and writing are all too important to me to give up. So here I am, back at it again in the blogosphere! 

I thought what better way to display where I’ve been at mentally and physically in my life since leaving my last blog. My fiancĂ©, Geoffrey, and I left for a few days to his hometown, Farmington for his birthday. It was a 12 hour drive there, 12 hours back, but definitely worth it! Plus when you’re traveling with you’re best friend, it goes by fast! 

  
  
  
If you’ve never been there, it’s a small town that is basically all…brown. The dirt, the buildings, everything! It was such a new experience for me, considering I live in the most concrete jungle part of Texas! 

We also went to Durango, Colorado which I LOVED. It was like being in a movie. Too unbelievably beautiful and breathtaking to be real. 

There’s all of these quaint little shops, restaurants, and bed and breakfasts all surrounded by mountains. 

  
  
  
Even though we had a blast, we ended up coming home a day earlier than planned. This trip was our first time not being with our little boy, Jace, so we missed him too much to stay that last day. 

All in all, it was worth the drive, and I am so lucky to have gotten to see where my love was born and raised! 

We will be back again to see you, NM & CO!
