A Somewhat Shakin' Bakin' Tuesday + Some Other Stuff

Well Monday I gave you an update on my appointment, but didn't say much about our day.  It really wasn't all that exciting but we did make our weekly Wal-Mart trip and I got some cute pictures I wanted to share.
Before we went I picked up Hadley a smoothie and cheese quesadilla from Taco Beuno. (Helps the time pass that and Veggie Tales on Netflix via iphone.)

Oh and I guess there was one pretty exciting part of our day.  We I decided, after the nurse broke the bummer news, what out vacation was going to be this summer.  We've been going back and forth and it always kinda came back to this one, it's..... (drum roll)
I know, I know...we went last year, but we I figured this would be our last chance to go for a while.
Here's how I let my crazy out and coaxed Andrew into it.
1- *Pity Party* "The doctor just told me I'm not aloud to start trying for another baby for 8 more months.... I NEED this trip." *all with a pitiful face* =)
2- *Guilt* If we don't do this trip now it will probably be a L--O--N--G time before we can go again, here's why:
1- Hopefully next year we'll have a baby and we wouldn't take them for at least a few years.
2- By the time hypothetical baby #2 was old enough Hadley *big sniff* will be enrolling in Kindergarten, meaning we'll have to plan vacations around her school schedule.
3- And at the same time your schedule will be changing into super crazy mode because you'll be in residency.
4- If we wait till you're out of residency Hadley will be, 9.  That's almost 7 years!!!  Are you prepared to tell Hadley or me that we're not going back for another 7 years? I don't think so. 
5- Plus we have a military discount that we need to take FULL advantage of while we still have it.
Needless to say, it worked and we booked our trip that night.  =)

Yesterday was a busy day.  It started with me dropping Hadley off for school, then off to Hobby Lobby to pick up paper to make a banner for my nieces 3rd birthday.
It's going to be bright.

After Hobby Lobby I went to lunch with some girlfriends from church, which was great.  Some of them I feel like I haven't seen in forever so it was nice to catch up.

When I picked Hadley up from school it was a race to get home and start cleaning because we had people coming over and had some serious picking up to do.  In the midst of picking up I also switched out my wax scent to this little yummy.  
My house smells like a birthday party and I LOVE it!!

We had the Owens family over tonight for pizza and games.
Hideaway is a popular (and delicious) place here in T-Town.

Shortly after digging into our meal we started up a friendly game of MadGab.

Its so funny to listen to this game and even more hilarious to see how frustrated the coaches get when their partners can't here it.

I loved this picture because Ross just kept shaking his hand in Jessica's face trying so hard to get her to say it.

I had to include this picture as you can see both Hadley and Jessica are coaching Ross this round.  Hadley came running in from the living room because of something she thought she heard Ross say and then just kept yelling, "Say dragon!  Say dragon!"  We laughed so hard.

 While we played the girls entertained themselves with Hadley's Tinkerbell friends.

Mid game we took a short baking break.

Princess Valentine Cookies!

The girls were so helpful.
Note Hadley's shoes and how they REALLY make the outfit.

These girls had a lot of fun.

After they left I got to work on the birthday banner.

I also made this little plaque with her invite on it.

 A peak at the finished banner.  I'll post more pictures from the party this weekend.

Today Hadley and I just hung out and met a friend for lunch.  Its been a pretty relaxing day, I'll take it.  =)

Thanks for checkin' in!!
