Happy: One Week Ago

One week ago....
...Gage & I loaded up in the car, and made a road trip to my Aunt Wanda's house. She's a shitzu breeder.

We got this little love muffin!
His name is Happy, and he's my mother-in-law's new little lap dog.

Below: Gage, my Aunt Wanda, & Happy.

Happy rode in Gage's lap almost the whole way home....

Just look at my mother-in-law...She's so in love!

And...Gage is in love too.

After all that playing, they were both pretty tuckered out!

Mommy's Special...but she's not THAT special. all started with this song...

I am special
I am special

Don't you see?
Don't you see?

Someone very special.
Someone very special.

Because God made me.
God made me.

Gage: "Well, God didn't make ME."
Mommy: "Yes he did."
Gage: "NO! You made me in your tummy!"
Mommy: "Well..." {think fast Mom! How do you explain all this to your 3 year old!?}
Gage: "Are YOU GOD?"
Mommy: "Well, no..."

And then we proceeded to have a conversation about how yes, I did grow Gage in my tummy, but only after we wished, hoped, and prayed for a baby. And God gave Gage to us as a blessing.

I don't know how much he understood or retained....but the conversation had NOTHING to do with sex {thank goodness!} and ended with Gage saying "YOU'RE NOT GOD!"

...and there you have it, folks.

Father's Day...2009

Well, we woke up at the hotel.
Hubby was chomping at the bits to go get Gage, who spent the night with his mom.
So, we headed to her house.
We loaded up on the golf cart & headed to their neighborhood pool.

After that...lunch at Snuffer's {gotta love the huuuuuuge salads & loaded cheese fries!}, and home for a nice loooooong nap!

6/20: Dad's Wedding....

Here are some pics from last Saturday....

Before the wedding...

Heading to the wedding....

At the wedding & reception...

After the wedding...
...we went to a restaurant in downtown Dallas. You know I love food. You know I love dining out. You know I'll give you a review.....

I don't normally like sushi. I prefer my meat cooked. I can't get past the thought of uncooked meat/fish/whatever. I have tried sushi several times now. Not for me. The taste of the seaweed wrapper stuff...not for me.

They have veggie sushi that doesn't have seaweed in it. It's wrapped in cucumber & that sticky sushi rice {seriously, forgive my inadequate description of sushi & sushi ingredients}.

The restaurant has a rooftop deck/patio, pool, hot tub, misting system. Nice hang out area....but I gotta say---we were a little too early for the late-night crowd, and for some reason---I just picture the rooftop as "makeout-central" late at night, ya know? Really, is there enough chlorine in the world to make me get in that hot tub? No, no there isn't. I'm just sayin'.....

But, we had a lot of fun there, and a lot of great food!
The group that went out to Fuse was: the bride & groom, Hubby & myself, and Miguel & Jennifer (Miguel is Dad's friend, and Jennifer is his wife. They're a ton of fun!)

So....after that....we called it a night. We headed back to the Ritz (Thank you, Daddy!) for the night....and I ended my day in a rose-petal-filled bathtub. It was fabulous....

The Wedding....Rehearsal Dinner....

This post will mostly be pictures.

So, my dad & his 24 year old bride got married.

Rehearsal Dinner....

Allen & I were posing for the camera...

Me & Hubby....

This is my Gammy! Isn't she so cute?

Hubby made a toast....

The menu was delicious. As ALWAYS. Hattie's is one of my favorite restaurants ever. It's in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas. I had fabulous Mimosas, made with freshly squeezed orange juice, yummy tomato bisque with mini grilled cheese, pecan crusted catfish, and finally---banana almond bread pudding. The entire meal was just delicious. Like I mentioned---it always is!

Cupcake Cousins

A few weeks ago, my mom, my sister, and nephew all came over to hang out for the day.
Darnin (a.k.a. my mom, a.k.a. mamasita) made cupcakes.


Trystan & Gage loved them!

I have a bunch of pictures from that day....but they'll have to wait for another time.
