What a cutie! Carson, this was the best date I've had in a long time. I had so much fun with you. You are so very sweet and a joy to be around. You just fill my heart sweet boy. I love you more and more each day. You'll always be my sweet little sugar bear!

I will be busy this weekend updating each of the links...especially on my Hide and Seek Boutique blog. I'll have all of my products and fabrics available online now, which I'm so excited about! Keep checking back over the next few days and hopefully I will have the majority of it up.
Let me know what you think of the new design? Is it easy to navigate through? Keep in mind, I'll be adding a ton of content over the next few days!!

Then for our main course, he grilled. And, oh did he grill! We had grilled yellow squash, ribeye steaks and grilled portobella mushrooms. The steaks were topped with melted gorgonzola cheese, finely chopped portobella mushrooms and a blackberry wine reduction. Hello?!? I had no idea he knew how to make a reduction, actually I had no idea how to make a reduction! Everything was so incredible!
We had so much food left over, we'll be eating this for days. Sorry to those of you who freak out about leftovers, but this was not going in the trash!
Thanks Chaddy P. for an awesome dinner. We were so stuffed, there was no room for dessert, we just had coffee instead!
Tomorrow of course is Easter and after mass, we'll be celebrating at my mom and dad's house. We're celebrating my bday at the same time too! This year I got to pick out my own cake with whatever I wanted on it, I haven't done that in years! So, I went to Merritt's, told them what I wanted, and here's what they came up with...
It's perfect, exactly what I wanted! Since we're going on a cruise for my bday I thought it'd be fun to do a tropical cake. Merritt's did a great job!
Happy Easter everyone!

When they came in, they dumped their bags on the kitchen floor and started going through everything and taking a little taste of everything too...sugar high here we come!
It's a beautiful spring day here in OK...hope everyone is able to get outside and enjoy this weather!

Right before we left for the ER last night, we found out our neighbor, Lloyd, had passed away earlier that day in his home. His son is thinking it was something sudden...maybe a heart attack. He was such a good man, probably in his 50's or 60's, very healthy, rode his bike everywhere and he was always outside working in his yard. It's so hard to believe that he is gone. He was so sweet to the kids and often bought them little gifts here and there. He gave them each an Easter basket last year, which was so sweet of him. Please keep him in your prayers today and his family as well.
To top it all off...it's my 30th birthday today. What a day for a birthday! If Kennedy is feeling ok this evening, then my mom is going to come over so Chad and I can go out to dinner. That will be a nice break for today! My real gift comes at the end of April...Chad and I are flying to Orlando and taking a cruise to the Bahamas for 4 days! I can't wait for that...

Here's our conversation about the picture...
Mom: "Oh wow, Carson, that's a busy picture! What did you draw?"
Carson: "MO-OM" (that's a two syllable mom!) "It's a picture of your messy house."
Mom: "Are you kidding?"
Carson: "No and I'm giving it to Mrs. Craig!"
Mom: "I'll have you know that this house is S.P.O.T.L.E.S.S. today and the only messy room is your play room so ha!"
And, that was the end of our conversation. Luckily, Mrs. Craig has 5 kids...she'll understand!
They are little Hershey's miniature candy bars wrapped in personalized paper! The writing on the wrapper reads "Happy Easter! Love, Carson & Kennedy Potter".
