The one with a Birthday!

This past week has been lots of fun!  I always love Birthday's, and I have had a lot of fun since I met Brett, feeling like I'm "in charge" of making his birthday special!  Anyways..This week however, was MY birthday!  I had so much fun!  The actual day was Tuesday, which is my LONG work day, so I was at work till about 8PM, and didn't get to see Brett, but they got a cake for me at work, and sang Happy Birthday, so that was sweet, and kinda made it actually feel like my birthday!

On Wednesday Brett took my out for a date!   First we went to dinner at Louie's Bar and Grill .  We had some yummy food out on the patio (the weather was perfect).  They had the Macho Chicken Nachos on the special that night for Ladies Night, so we had an order of those.  SO YUMMY!!  It could have just been my meal! (sorry about how blurry this pictures are, I only had my phone with me!)
After dinner we went to Putt-Putt.  We love going to together.  Mostly, because we like to talk crap to each other, about who will win.  We had lots of fun...

After Putt-Putt, which Brett beat with a 43, and I had a 47, although I got hole-in-one's. ( I guess that says something about how I did on the other holes! ha!), we went for Ice Cream at Shake's. It was a fun night, and  good to be together! 

Friday night I got to hang out with my BFF and her husband, my sis in law, and brother Joseph, my brother John, another couple we hang out with a lot - May and Evan, and then my sweet hubby!! :)  We had a lot of fun! 
W/ my Sister in law, and brother's!
w/ my BFF Faith, and her hubby!
Trying to be Sassy!
It really was a fun night, and a great birthday!  I was happy to see everyone, and let the celebrations continue! :) Which speaking of...Today we had birthday's w/ Brett's side of the family.  It was his Nanny's 88 birthday, Uncle Terry's 72, my 23rd!  We laughed that all together that 184 years!  Man we're getting old! :)  
Brett's Nanny is SO special to us.  Brett has loved her dearly, and talked wonders about her before I ever met her.  Once I did, I new why he loved her so much!  It makes me wish my grandparents lived closer, but I'm so thankful to have her!  We love her dearly!  Since she adores Brett so much, so thought she'd like to have the picture of the two of them from Brett's graduation day from the Police Academy.  So, I decided to get crafty, and make a frame!  It's not perfect, but I had fun doing!  I think I'll end up making more! 
This is what I started with!

So, that's a little update on our life!  Back to work tomorrow, and looking forward to Easter Sunday with my family!! :) little flower pot is showing some white! I'm guessing that's the flower!  Hopefully it's going to bloom!

Let's try this again....

So, last week I was a little over half-way through a long blog posts with updates on our life.  Sadly, my computer shut off for no apparent reason, and I lost my post.  

In an attempt to start writing on my blog weekly, I've decided to just start with this weekend, instead of trying to go back and write a gigantic post on the past few months.  So, the update will start with Friday night :)

My little brother Jason, turns 11 on April 14th (2 days after my birthday), and since Brett had to work Friday night, I decided this would be a good time to spend some time with Jason for his birthday!

First, I took him to get some ice cream, because for some reason I was starving, but it was to early eat dinner.  So we went to Cold Stone Creamery.  I had never been to the one here in Fayetteville, so it was a fun, new place to check out! 
After ice cream, we went to do some shopping.  Joel, Brett and I decided to go in together and let him pick out some shoes or something he wanted for his birthday.  We ended up with these from JcPenny.  They had a good sale on the shoes, blue we got an extra 10% off due to a "one day only sale"  (and is it just me, or does JCPenny have a "one day only sale" everyday?!?)

Then he wanted to go to Cracker Barrel for dinner, so we headed to Springdale, and had some yummy country food.  Side Note:  It made me think about the first time I went to dinner with my best friend and her now husband, Casey.  It was right after a friends wedding, and we finally got to sit and talk and hang out just the 3 of us!  anyway.../memory lane. 
Cracker Barrel was fun!  I love the Country Store, and Jason and I had a ton of fun looking around!

Of course this is a highlight of CB.  I'm not even sure what it's called, but he got it on the 3rd try, but then we couldn't do it a 2nd. 

Saturday morning, I had to work for a few hours, but then came home and Brett, Jason and I went to the opening day of the Farmers Market here in Fayetteville.  It was packed full of people, but I just think it's so fun and refreshing to go!  Plus, they have some great stuff!  

Then we went to the batting cages so Jason could practice with Brett.  Brett has played baseball his whole life, and even played in college until he hurt his shoulder.  He is very talented at it, and had some great pointers for Jason!  Jason was hitting all the balls that got pitched to him by the end!  We can't wait to watch some of his games!

After Brett left for work, Jason and I went to Putt-Putt where I won by 4 points, and got a hole-in-one on the the 18th.  I was so excited, I had to call Brett right away :) He was so proud! haha

Today has been a pretty lazy day for us. I'm trying out my green thumb.  Or what I hope is a green thumb. 

I'm trying this "Flowe in a pot", before I try anything out in Flower Bed, where the whole world can see  it ;)
