Mother's Day!

Ok, so I am a little behind on posts....none the less, my sister threw a FABULOUS Mother's Day Luncheon! She really did a great job and we were so thrilled to be able to celebrate both our mom and Mel's mom-in-law. Thanks for a great day Mel!
Mom, I love you to pieces and am so thankful for our friendship! You are the best friend and mom a girl could ask for and I don't know where I would be without you!

The Secret
One day, one friend asked another,
"How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
and you never seem to get down."
With her eyes smiling, she said,
"I know the Secret!"
"What secret is that?"
To which she replied,
"I'll tell you all about it,
but you have to promise to
share the Secret with others."
"The Secret is this:
I have learned there is little I can do
in my life that will make me truly happy.
I must depend on God to make
me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply
according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time
I don't need half of what I think I do.
He has never let me down.
Since I learned that 'Secret', I am happy."
The questioner's first thought was,
"That's too simple!"
But upon reflecting over his own life
he recalled how he thought a bigger house
would make him happy, but it didn't!
He thought a better paying job
would make him happy, but it hadn't.
When did he realize his greatest happiness?
Sitting on the floor with his grandchildren,
playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
a simple gift from God
Now you know it too!
We can't depend on people to make us happy.
Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that.
Trust HIM!

And now I pass the Secret on to you!
So once you get it, what will you do?

Here's to 27!

Yesterday was my 27th birthday!! Woohoo!! I had the most amazing birthday weekend....Blake really outdid himself! Have I ever told you how much he spoils me? Well, let me just explain how my birthday weekend went....

Friday afternoon Blake told me to pack a bag. Hmmm...what should I pack in this bag? Lots of cute outfits, a dress or two, and a swimsuit. Then he whisks me off to yummy Mi Cocina in HP of my favs! We enjoy fajitas and ritas and a little shopping at Anthro to top it off!

Then off to the next destination....where we would spend the rest of the weekend...

A weekend at the super chic and fun "W" Hotel!!! It was nothing short of fabulous! The weather did not cooperate as much as would have liked and the ultimate pool scene was a no go. But we did get to sleep in, have mimosas and go see a movie.
Later that night, we got all dressed up and headed over to Sambuca for great food, great music and even a little dancing.

Then on Sunday, the partying continued. We met JT and Noelle for brunch at Ozonas :) Yum!

We enjoyed the rest of the afternoon watching the Mavs, walking around a park and relaxing. The last big surprise was huge birthday dinner with all my favorite people! Lots of friends: Michelle and Eric, Kambry and Brian, Amy and Brandon, Tara, Joanna and Justin (and Pierce) Lots of family: Mom and Dad, Melissa and Ryan (fresh off the plane from Hawaii), Burson and Blair (and Cooper and Mason)!

Mom and Dad even brought me a yummy yummy cake from Raspberries 'n' Creme!! It was gorgeous!

Thanks to all who helped me celebrate - I had a fantastic birthday AND thank you baby for all your hard work and planning! I love you! Here's to 27
