Back Splash, Owie, and Crafts!

I can't express it enough: I am the luckiest girl ever! I love my new back splash, and the husband who afforded me to have it!

Look at my poor son! "Daddy, can I get a backyard now that mommy got her tile???"
"Oh I wish, I wish daddy would add grass, a swing set, a purgala, and a hot tub for me and my friends!"
I have learned a thing or two about home renovations...they are EXPENSIVE. So my extra curricular activities need to be significantly cheaper. Look what I created out of $10.00!

A night without the kiddos...

We spent last night out with our friends Amy and Tony. With them having twins, and us having Owen you can imagine that getting together without the kiddos is quite a feat! We had so much fun, and it was nice to have some stimulating adult conversation with two very intelligent and funny people. If you haven't eaten at the White Chocolate Grill, you are surely missing out. They have the most delicious white chocolate brownie for dessert!

Wow, I must have said something really funny!

Yes folks...here she is...the mother of all desserts!
The gang!

We were able to visit Albuquerque a couple weekends ago. This was my first time going back since our move in January. We made the trip back to visit our dear friend's new baby girl, Emery. She is SOOO beautiful! I had to steal some pictures from her blog for you all to enjoy! Loved meeting her, and seeing our "Albuquerque Family"!
We also had the pleasure of revisiting our first home. It was uh...interesting! I thought for sure I would want to pack up and move right back to our starter home, until I realized that we lived in the freaking ghetto. Why did we not see the signs when their was a drive by shooting across the street, or the woman who came to my door in the middle of the night to tell me her boyfriend tried to kill her. We were blinded by the sanctuary we created on the inside...trying to forget the chaos on the outside. So to all our friends and family who came to visit, and never suggested that we get the heck out of that neighborhood...feel lucky that we are still alive!Meagan and Liz pre-children! Not sure why I thought it was okay for my tummy to be showing.
This is Emery. Isn't she perfect!
Thanks for a great visit guys!
