Away in Dallas

So remember back to when you were younger and your parents told you that work is its own reward and be the best that you can be? Well as a grown up I completely agree with that advice.
Currently I am at a conference in Dallas, TX for work.
And Shellie the turtle came with us. 🙂

Family BBQ

Today we enjoyed Lepik Palooza where we celebrated our house warming, my birthday, Josh’s birthday and our anniversary and I have to say I had a grand time!!! This was the first party that Josh decided that he wanted to be in charge of so I temporarily denied my party OCD instincts and gave him the reigns.
He had the invitations designed 6 months in advance I kept thinking that I created another OCD party monster (I was so proud). But after giving my hubby 3 friendly reminders to get the invitations printed and mailed out at 8, 6 & 4 weeks then me freaking out because he hadn’t mailed out the invitations much less printed them (remember I DID say temporarily) then since I hit my 3 strikes rule I no longer mentioned the invitations…and then about a week before the party my darlin hubby sent me a text that he asked me to forward as the party invite to my family & friends list (I was thinking that we were definitely NOT going to have much of a turn out) but boy was I wrong!
We had about 50 close friends and family show up today to enjoy the day with us. My mom got Lyss a pool that ALL of the kids enjoyed with Beach Balls and Floaties. We hung out and enjoyed our time with our amazing extended family, so thank you ma famille for a wonderful day!!!
I love you all so very much 🙂
