I'm alive, I'm alive

I have been so busy! The week of my birthday was just ridiculous. We had so many cakes and celebrations, it was just a big blur of fun!

Still have nine-thousand other things to do to get back on track but I wanted to share the discovery I made last Friday at Northpark.

The Gap just started selling their Nursery Collection.

Can I just say awesome!

Makes me ready to have another baby!

I really, really, really love The Gap.

More of an update soon, promise!

So we had a very interesting night last night.

There are lines and lines of storms pushing through our area right now (it IS spring in Texas after all) and we were awoken to a big part of it last night. I heard the rain hitting our windows at a strange angle which naturally made me think tornado. I got up to look out the back yard, our power was off - my brand new umbrella that I'd bought for our patio was broken into several pieces and slammed up against the back doors. The patio table was turned over, chairs were missing. The rain was slanted.

I got back into bed and told Rodney that I thought a tornado was coming. 5 minutes later, the tornado sirens started going off.

I jumped out of bed and ran into Rylee's room. I scooped her up and yelled for Rodney to come get in the bathtub with us (he was looking outside). The sirens went off for a little while. It got really quiet for a few minutes and I was sure it was coming right for us. Thankfully, the sirens stopped and we were in the clear.

Tornados really scare me. I was actually in one when I was in 2nd grade, in Austin. Since then, storms like this make me very nervous.

Just down our street this morning, I noticed that several people's fences were completely gone and two different buildings were in complete shambles. All that was left was some mangled up metal. Very scary.

Even though I lost the umbrella that I JUST BOUGHT LAST SATURDAY, I do still have some things to look forward to.

Tomorrow is my birthday and tonight The Office is back on tv.

How long has Target been selling Guittard baking chips?

I just noticed them yesterday and I had to do a double take! (of course I bought some for my very own birthday cake)

How this has evaded me, I will never know!

We are soso busy this week. Three cakes, 60 cookies, 12 cookie cutters, birthday dinners and much, much more!

Kelly, I know Jess has ordered a necklace for me and I am SO excited!!!

Daddy's return

Rodney was in LA most of last week, transferring the spots they just finished up for American Airlines.

He brought Rylee this:

The Kid Robot store was a few blocks away from his hotel so he decided to stop in and pick it up for her.

Clearly it says AGES 3 + on the box. On the back of the box, it also says "THIS IS NOT A TOY. THIS IS A PIECE OF ART." He decided to give it to her anyway, knowing that she would definitely mess it up.

Not even 24 hours later, Foofa has a yogurt stain and the flower on top of her head is being held on with super glue.

Rylee couldn't be happier though.

PS. I promise to have more of an update tomorrow. Between Rodney being out of town, a very time consuming order and STILL BEING SICK, I've just been trying to get by!
