11 months and counting

I know...I know this is super late but better late than never!
On February 13, 2012 Grace turned 11 months old! I cannot believe that she is going to be 1 year old next month! Where had the time gone???
She is getting cuter and funnier by the minute! She loves to play peak-a-boo and she claps when she is happy. She is very stingy with the kisses but Blase makes up for that! She is not to fond of people or strangers. She loves Mommy and if I leave her site she is not very happy. She knows to raise her hands when you ask her how big Grace is and she is learning to really annoy her brother! She likes to knock over his towers (which i find funny! him not so much) But she is also very loving with her brother and he is learning to tolerate her.

Grace doing so big!

Happy Girl

Look at those big blue eyes

The BIG 30!!!

Now that I have left my 20's and have entered my 30's I thought it was only right to take a look back at my 20's.
Now that I have started thinking about it I met Jason when i was only 23.
I went to The University of Tampa and graduated in May of 2005 with my bachelors in Elementary Education. Once I graduated I got a job at DeSoto Elementy teaching 3rd grade. On July 9th I went home for my cousins going away party. He was joining the Marines and we were having a party for him and unknown to me my mom and aunt had invited Jason. He had just started working at the Ihop and was actually living in Lakeland (not to far from me in Tampa!)

This picture was taken at The Keg in Denver when i went to meet the parents

In November of 2005 Jason proposed. We both knew that it would not be a very long engagement. On June 10, 2006 at the age of 24 I married my best friend. We had a great party er i mean wedding! lol

I welcomed 2007 in with two big adventures! In January my brother Michael and I ran our first 5k. Then right before my 25th birthday Jason and I closed on our house. Also, in 2007 in August we found out that we would be expecting a baby. We chose not to find out what we were having! Jason said that it was the only surprise I could not ruin!

I welcomed 2008 and turned 26 I had a great birthday dinner at olive garden with family and friends (and got to meet Alexis's new boyfriend and eventual husband Vinn). Then one of the best things happened on May 18th we welcomed Blase Carl into the world!

We lived life and welcomed 27 and 28 without to many life changing events! Then in July of 2010 I found out (although i totally knew) that we were pregnant. In October we found out that it was a little girl! 2011 I said hello to 29 and then in March said hello to Grace Alexis!

And now here we are at 2012 welcoming in 30! I have to admit it was not nearly as bad as i thought it would be! I had a wonderful dinner with the people that matter the most to me! Jason, the kids, and my parents. The only thing that would have made it even better was if my brother and his family were able to come!
Looking back over the last 7 years I have to admit that I am extremely blessed. I thank God each night for all the blessings i have. So what I am getting older! (Still no grey hairs!) I am getting older with my best friend and our two loving kids! Guess you cannot ask for more than that!

Grace New Trick!

Well this is a first!! She is cruising!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!! This was Grace's first one!! Last year I picked up (after season) these adorable little Love Bugs from Hallmark! After the kids went to bed on the 13th I got the table all set up for them! Special table cloth, new bowls and plates, their love bugs, candy, balloon, and a card! I had full intentions to make a nice special Valentine's Day breakfast but when they both choose to sleep in and we had school to get to (we were late :/) that did not happen. So Mr. Blase had some scrambled eggs and french toast and Grace ate what was left! LOL
Blase had a party at school so we had his Valentine's all ready to go and made some whoopie pies for the class.
Poor Jason gets hit with two major holidays in one week!! (Valentine's Day and my Birthday) so this year is the first year that we said we were not going out and actually did not go out! Granted a lot of that had to do with the fact that he had to work till 9 and did not get home till 11:30 which totally sucked for me!
Blase and I had Mcdonalds for lunch and then just ate leftovers for dinner! How romantic! Although, i do remember last year being 9 months pregnant and we got Taco bell for dinner! LOL one of the best dinners ever!
