No place like 'home'

While John was in New Orleans this past weekend celebrating Matt's last night of freedom at his bachelor party, I got on a plane and headed north to Ft. Worth.
Friday night when I got in to town I went with my mom and Tim to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Saturday morning the girls got up and got mani/pedis and then we went out to Grapevine to take my nephews to ride Thomas the Train. They had the tarantula train 'dressed up' as Thomas.


'Cowboy' and Jared

After the train ride we walked around the area they had set up. There was a petting zoo, a magician, music, carnival food and other fun stuff to do. Me and my sister being the big kids we are jumped in the petting zoo and couldn't resist the new baby pot belly pigs!

There was also this blacksmith shop set up that was actually started by my great grandfathers brother.

And of course we had to take full advantage of all the other photo props out there!

I had some problems getting up! ;)

Saturday night we went out to dinner with the family in Grapevine then went back to the house and watched a movie. Sunday morning my mom made waffles, we did a little shopping, then had dinner at my Grannie's house with the whole family before my plane left to head back to Houston.

Everytime I go home it makes me miss it even more and makes me want to move back there so bad.

Don't worry momma. I'll be back one day! :)

3 years...

John -
I know you thought you got jipped last week when I wrote a big long paragraph about Pixie and nothing about you, but this is why :) I told you you would get a special post all to yourself soon so here it is!

March 2008 -
March 29, 2008 was the best day of my life so far. You took me to eat Italian food and then to the zoo for our first date. After our date you dropped me back off at my apartment and I should have known then that when you wanted to see me again later that night, that we would be inseparable. We had our first kiss at my apartment that night ;) We also realized you were allergic to cats... When you loaded up on claritin and zyrtec the next day so you could come over again is when I absolutely knew you were here to stay for awhile!

April 2008 -
A couple of weeks after our first date, you invited me over to your house for the first time and I met your roommates and most of your friends for the first time that night. The next weekend I had a trip planned to Ft. Worth and I trusted you to cat sit for me. I should have known then you were going to be great daddy to my babies ;) You also left me flowers at my apartment for when I got home!

May 2008 -
We took our first "trip" together and spent a weekend in San Antonio on the riverwalk. We took another weekend trip to DFW where you met most of my family for the first time at the lakehouse. I met your family that same Sunday. We also said our first "I love you's"

June 2008 -
You supported me as I had the Lasik surgery I had been wanting and even had flowers delivered to my apartment as a "test" for my new eyes :)

July 2008 -
You took me to my very first Met's game! Who would have thought I would be just as big a fan as you now?

December 2008 -
I got robbed :( However this showed me exactly what kind of partner you will be during the bad times, not just the good. When I called you hysterical, you immediately left your friends at the Rockets game to be with me, stayed up with me through the night trying to get things put back together and even took off work the next day to help me get through it. You also let me stay at your house for the next 2 weeks until I could get into another apartment. You were my hero during this time. We also had our first Christmas together at your parents house. I had to work but I got to spend Christmas Eve with you and your family. We had our first New Years Eve together too!

3 years ago today was truly the best day of my life. I honestly don't know what I did to deserve a man like you. You are my best friend, my soul mate, the man of my dreams... These past 3 years have been absolutely incredible and I am so lucky that I get to wake up next to you every day. I love you more and more each day and I can't wait to see what God has in store for us!

Happy Anniversary, Babe!!
