Oh... Okay.

"Mom, if you notice I didn't eat the green fruit loops this morning. I thought they might be poison or something."

The countdown is on!

We are just about a month out from the end of the school year. Thank goodness! I'm so over it this year.

We just had a big Easter weekend together and now we are rolling into the last weekend in April. How is that even possible? As I put together Georgia's Easter basket Saturday night I was chatting with friends how I felt as though Christmas Eve was just the other day....Surreal. Why is life moving so fast?

Over the weekend we had our regular schedule of Easter Egg dying at my moms and dinner Saturday. Afterward I had booked a suite at Reliant for Disney on Ice and we met a bunch of friends up there to see the show! So much fun!! It's always a blast to see the kids playing together and their antics are hilarious.

Sunday we woke up bright and early to see what the Easter Bunny brought Georgia in her basket. He's always so good to her ;) I cooked breakfast (Nailed those bunny shaped pancakes again- #winning) and then we were off to church! Hands down best part of my weekend happened here. At the end of the service the pastor began to talk about asking Jesus to be your savior. Then came the "repeat after me" prayer if you are ready. As we are sitting there Easter Sunday I hear the tiniest voice next to me begin to pray the prayer (out loud) asking Jesus to be her savior. Needless to say, I got a little teary. At the end she opened her eyes with a big smile and said "Mom, when can I be baptized?" Best Easter Ever.

We then headed out to the country (aka Laura's house) for Easter Day egg hunts and dinner. My sister and brother in law took great pleasure in making me hold all the farm animals they have accumulated out there. I suppose holding a chicken wasn't as frightening as I imagined. When Noah came up with a duck though and I wasn't expecting a reptilish foot to be placed on my arm and then it was I did scream like a maniac. I recovered quickly and moved on....The usual run down occurred- egg hunting, eating, trampoline jumping and kite flying with the kids. Then time to go!

We wrapped up with a trip to the theatre to see "Rio 2". I think I napped during the show but Georgia liked it!

This past week was another pretty busy one with dance practices (The big recital is coming up!) we had dress rehearsal last week. Sooo cute! We also went to the Skeeter's opening night last night. What a great stadium- it was the first time I had been and I want to go back. It's so family friendly and has a fun little kid area with a carousel that Georgia adored.

Another packed weekend is about to begin- we are going to end 1st grade with a bang. ;)

"Sometimes It's Just Now Or Never..."

"Sometimes it's just now or never"

Birthday Month has ended and what a whirl wind! Georgia and I lived it up all month long hitting up the rodeo as much as possible and dining out around town eating as much birthday cake as we could stuff in. Luckily we have a month break before her birthday month begins in May and her calendar is all ready filling up with trips to NY, Arkansas and Chicago. She is quite the little jet setter. ;) Luckily mommy gets to join her on a couple of trips!

I can't say which part of last month was my favorite but I know for sure my amazing family and friends helped kick off one of the best birthdays yet. 28 was such a fabulous year I have to say I was a little apprehensive about leaving it in the past- I know now 29 has the potential to be even better and I can't wait. :)

Goals for the next year is to wrap up all the loose ends. Business wise things have been insanely hectic but I'm looking forward to continuing to put in the effort in hopes that it all pays off around this time next year and hopefully I won't feel pulled in 5 million directions soon- I can see the light at the end of the tunnel....I think.

For now I hope to make it to the end of the school year in one piece- I've never looked forward to summer so much. Juggling the schedules this year has been tough and a well choreographed dance Georgia and I have jumped through. We are almost there and boy do we need the break. Luckily with the vacations coming up we will be able to sit back and relax a tiny bit prior to summer starting.

All for now! I'll try to come back and picture update one of these days...
