Nanny's Birthday

Thursday, March 18th was Nanny's 80th birthday! Nanny is my (Shelbee's) dad's mom. When we were kids, my sister and I would spend a few weeks each summer at Nanny's house in Tulsa. When my grandpa died in 2004, Nanny came to live with my parents in Duncanville. She has been a big blessing to my family. About a week before her birthday, she had a health scare where she thought she was literally dying. She came out of the bathroom and passed out in my sister's arms. I am so grateful my sister was there because Nanny would have really hurt herself if she would have fallen on the tile. She spent 3 days at Charleton Hospital. They said that it looked like her new prescription medication, mixed with cold medicine, had caused some pretty bad heart arrhythmia's. Luckily, Nanny got through it and she says she is feeling better. I am very grateful for Nanny and all she has done for me and my family over the years. Happy 80th Birthday Nanny!!

26th Birthday!

Friday was my 26th birthday! I had a great birthday weekend. Evan did a spectacular job of keeping me entertained and well fed. Friday started with me waking up to birthday streamers and a table full of some of my favorite goodies. We got to work and my secret pal had a gift waiting for me. On our birthday, our team buys us lunch and everyone eats together. We ordered some Mr. Jim's pizza. At about 1:00, our office attendance clerk brought in a box of beautiful flowers. (Ps. This is the first time Evan has gotten me real flowers. I have gotten artificial flowers, fruit flowers, and even paper towel flowers).

After work, I went home and took a quick nap (I have been so exauhsted in this last part of my pregnancy) and then woke up and we met my best friend Amanda Churak at Red Robin for a free birthday burger. It was a great birthday!

Saturday was a PTA fundraiser called "Jam the Gym" where teachers play basketball against each other. Here is Evan and his coworker Richard after the game. It was alot of fun.

We came home, I took another nap, we did a little shopping and then headed to Dallas. We had dinner at Uncle Julios and then came the big surprise! Evan's birthday present to me was a night stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Dallas. Our room was on the 24th floor and had a great view. This picture was taken on the roof by the pool. Our stay was complete with 2 breakfast buffets that were oh so yummy. Rylee was definately well fed. Sunday night was my family's birthday dinner at BJ's. The service was awful but we still had a great time. Overall, it was a very nice birthday. Evan did alot to make it extra special. I am very blessed to have him as a husband. :)

Rylee's Room

Well, I finally put some of the finishing touches on Rylee's room last weekend before the shower. Here are pictures. I'm still thinking the wall with the bows needs something else, but I haven't quite decided what. I'm open for suggestions.
