With Chad's Birthday, Valentine's Day, and Parties over and done, we are finally slowing down! It was fun but I am ready to stop the stress! So I hired a Maid! It was the best decision, seriously! She is awesome and so thorough! If you don't have one, for sanity sake get one! It was a necessity after buying a bigger house! Now I have plenty of time to just play with my kids and not worry about scrubbing things! Oh I also forgot to post some of the Valentine's day fun we had in my last post.
These are the gorgeous earrings Chad got me, they match my ruby necklace he got me a few years ago.
The essential Valentine's Day roses
Oddly enough, even more than the earrings and the flowers, this card is what I would prefer for any occasion. I guess I am just sentimental. I have a hard time liking flowers because they just die. Expensive jewelry isn't my thing either, probably from my kids ripping it off me and my fear of loosing it. This was just perfect for me, lucky for Chad I am a cheap Valentine!
We went out to dinner that night to Samarai 21. Apparently I was too enthralled with the tricky chef to look at the camera and smile. It was really fun and yummy! Afterward we went to get an Ice cream cone. It was a great escape for Chad and I to spend some great quality time together! Happy Valentine's Day Chady!
Chase found these funny little glasses in the toy room that go to Mr. Potato Head and he insisted that they were his to wear ALL day long! He just makes me laugh so hard!
My Brothers and their families came to visit us over the weekend! So we went out to dinner, all 12 of us! How long is the wait for a party that big on a holiday weekend? 1 1/2 hrs.!!! Ya right! after shopping I was starving and ready to just go to Wendy's because everywhere we went the wait was the same and anyplace we tried to call didn't do reservations! We finally settled on the Olive Garden. I told my brother that whenever we go out to eat with Mom and Dad we instantly got seated! He said that's because Dad just tipped the Host $100 and they would do whatever he wanted! I thought why couldn't you have been there Dad? Ha, Maybe one day when I can justify tipping $100 to the Host I might not have to wait so long! ha ha
The girls didn't seem to mind though, they were our entertainment! Emma was doing gymnastics and Taylor was singing! They also did a lot of hanging on people like monkeys too!
They gave us a whole room to continue our chaos in
That "cheese" just shows you the goofy people we were surrounded by
