Gosh we were so stinkin' cute, if anyone can see any of us in the pics being that we were all trying to squish in this little booth and then fight for picture space, it was hillarious, good memories, good times!!!! :)

I sware I want to write every freakin' day and I just don't have the time. I have really been trying to get more focused at work and at home, Haaaaa, yea right, maybe at 11 when I am ready for bed would I have the time to sneak on the computer and blog, but I am tooo tired then.

Anyway, I received the most beautiful flowers ever today and Boy, was I surprised. Thank you my love!!! I appreciate you so much, you always know how to brighten my spirits,bring the joy back to my heart, and make me smile all over. I love you baby!!!

Life is a garden,
Good friends are the flowers
And time spent together,
Life's happiest hours.
And friendship, like flowers,
Blooms ever more fair,
When carefully tended
by dear friends, who care.
Thank You My Friend!!

I got something similar but more beautiful then these today:

Fresh Flowers

There are so many things I want to BLOG about, but just never enough time in the day, between work, emails, kids, dinner and TV. I keep thinking I will make more time to BLOG, because I have a running list of things I would like to write about going on in my head. Last night, I just decided to write in my journal, because I was already in bed snuggled under my covers when the need to write came about as I listed to this new cd, of a new artist, she is fabulous, if you are a Norah Jones fan, I think you will like her. She has a very soothing, calming voice. One that she would be singing about killing people, destroying the universe and I would’ve never caught on, because the sound has taken me to my own place of comfort.

So, I was thinking about the “ex” last night, the bad/good one, Ryan. I came across something that instantly made me reminisce about some beautiful times we had together and I got out the photo album while listening to beautiful music and looked at the pics and cried. It was just an emotional cry, I miss him!!! I don’t miss all the bad times, who does, but I miss the good ones. I miss the way he treated me like a princess and just wanted me to be happy (when things were good) he loved to see me smile and I appreciated that about him. I came across my first bday with him which was a few weeks after we started dating and he went all out for me, I was so impressed.

He took my daughters’ to get me a present and asked them what they wanted to get me. They told him they wanted to fill a room with flowers for me and a cake, so he took them to the store and told them to grab as many bouquets as they could carry in their arms and let them pick out a cake too and decorate it. I had to stay up in my room and when they were ready he blind folded me, walked me downstairs and surprise…. My babies started singing, the whole kitchen floor (it was empty we were moving) was filled with flowers of all kinds and colors and in the middle of the floor was a cake lit with candles with the words Happy Birthday Mommy written on it in the cutest hand writing. I was blown away and taken back and overwhelmed. What an amazing gift!!!!!! Later that day I received a heart shaped diamond necklace that he asked my friend to help him pick out. Good Times, Good Times!!!!!

The flowers filled two pitchers and a vase, this is just one pitcher full!!!

I tried to load pics, not working, DAMN blogger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why doesn't it give me an error message instead of trying to fool me with the "done" and then nothing. I will try again on Monday!!! :( Syke, it worked, finally

Oh and I didn't go a day, not one, w/o fresh flowers from this day forward for 7 or 8 months, he was pretty charming, I got cards for no reason too.

and Here she is...... Nia

An Angel

Look how Big she is (remember people this was a natural birth)
And the kids (can someone photoshop Ci into this pic?) with Momma
The Proud Poppa (should read "The tired Poppa")
And of course I am the proudest Auntie in the world, I have more pics with the Nia then I took of anyone else with her. She is a doll baby, honestly. She seems to only fuss if the diaper is wet or she is really hungry, otherwise she is just chill, what an amazing little girl!!!!

I love you little N.A.M!!!! :)

One Year and it continues

One year, it’s been one whole year; 52 weeks, 365 days and I have survived it and feel incredible. I can’t believe I did it. I never ever thought I would be able to, but here I am SINGLE and happy. This is a huge accomplishment for me. Since I was 14 and had my first boyfriend I have gone w/o one until last July. I have always been very co-dependant and labeled myself as such and others have too. Not anymore people!!! I am NO LONGER CO-DEPENDANT!!!! I am INDEPENDANT!!!

For most this probably wouldn’t be a big deal to be single for a year, however this is one of those things I never thought I would get through, being alone, w/o a man. Not only have I done this for myself, but for my beautiful daughters’, so they know and believe you don’t have to have a man to validate who you are as a woman. I think I believed this for a long time that if I didn’t have a man that something was wrong with me or I would be judge as such and I am not sure at what point in my life that stuck, but it did.

So, here I am one year later from the best/worst relationship in my life and I am happier today then I have ever been in any relationship. I guess there really is something said about being alone and giving yourself time to find you and fall in love with you/ME. I love me and I am glad that it is no longer a chore to be alone. I am actually in no rush to hop in to another relationship and I am so much closer to my daughters’ now that I can truly focus on them and dedicate myself to them and only them. This would be the first year they have had me all to themselves in 11 years.

Don’t get me wrong I have my days I go through thinking “I will never find the one” or “I am going to be alone forever”, but I wouldn’t have given this experience up for either of those. I believe that God will bring me my mate in time when I am truly ready. I trust that when I have gone through all I need as a single person, the right one will walk in to my life and I will not settle. I know that I am much happier and stress-free then I was in any relationship and I don’t have to worry about how to manage my time between man, friends and kids. I know there are many benefits to being married or in a healthy relationship and I look forward to those, but for now, I will continue to enjoy my new found freedom.

I tried to enter my fat happy picture but No luck, you will just have to trust me on this one.

Baby Girl "Noname" (No name) is on her way

I haven't even had a chance to post from the baby shower and the baby is on her way this morning. I woke up to feed the dogs and it was super early for us in the house, so I walked downstairs in my t-shirt (thinking no one will be up anytime soon) and then Sean is standing at the top of the stairs as I am stumbling up them saying, "Pssst Pssst, it's time". Of course I don't realize what's going on and I say, "Time for wha... OH IT'S TIME!!!!! The baby is coming!!!!!!!!!" and he sends me to go check on her while he goes to brush his teeth and gather himself. Sure enough contractions are coming and I am running around trying to get whatever she needs and then I realize I am still only in my tshirt, of course she doesn't care at this point. I send them off, lay down for five minutes and hop in the shower, get Baby Ci ready, wake up the kids and here I am at work!!!! I can't wait to hold my new precious baby girl, I can't wait to snuggle her and smell her and hear her little voice, see her beautiful eyes and sing to her. I will post pics in the next couple days!!!!

Congratulations Aim and Sean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh here's one pic from the shower, they are both having girls, B's is coming soon in a few weeks!!!!
