Yay for a short work week!

The weather was just too gorgeous Monday morning to go to work so I opted for a quick trip to Galveston with Chris and Cassie. 70 degree weather just doesn't last long enough around here so I want to take full advantage of it while I can ;-)

Cassie wasn't so sure about running her feet through the sand, or getting her shoes dirty, but she quickly adapted and loved every minute of it.

My favorite from that day:

I'll be back with more soon! Happy Wednesday!

Flying high

Somehow, on what was supposed to be a quick diaper run to Toys R Us the other night, we ended up with some extra goodies in our shopping cart for CB. One of those was this awesome Brobee kite that we just couldn't resist. I haven't given a good CB update in a while, but just to briefly catch you up, her thing right now is Yo Gabba Gabba. Or No Bagga Bagga as she prefers to call it. It makes me laugh when I'm at work and I'm suddenly bouncing the theme song around in my head, "Muno, he's tall and friendly! Brobee, the little green one!" and so on, and so on......

So anyway, we picked up a kite for Mikey too since it wouldn't be any fun for him to just come over and watch us play. He was mad at us at first because he wanted the Brobee kite, but as you can see from the photos below, he quickly got over it. Cassie had a blast, Mikey had a blast, in fact I think the adults did too, right Chris? Being there and watching the kids play brought so many memories of my own childhood. I think that's just one of the many bonuses of having a kid sometimes, having fun doing the simplest things with them.

Rodeo Recap

I'm finally back with some more photos from our trip to the rodeo. I hope my followers, yes all eight of you, have not given up on me ;-) Life has been hectic (in a good way) so as much as I've wanted to update the blog, I just haven't had the time to do so. I'm going to make more of an effort though because truly, it's always fun for me to come back and relive those moments.

And just for fun, click here to see how little she was this time last year :-)

(how you'll usually catch me: fixing her hair!)

(amazed at the sight of the ferris wheel)

I'll be back tomorrow with more of Cassie & Mikey's kite flying adventures, but for now here is one of Brobee......

Her eyes say it all

Last week we took Cassie to her second trip to the rodeo. She was amazed by all of the lights, the sounds, the colors, the rides, the people. I love this photo of her because it will always remind of that day and how hard she tried to soak it all in.

An unexpected day off

Lately, the urge to get to work has slowly been fading for me. I dread the traffic, the 2+ hour commute, the short lunches that leave me tied to my desk because I have to make up the time for being late each day, the mean co-workers that are quick to throw me under the bus, the unfairness of working in a politically charged environment where it's not what you know, but who you know.....but even all of that combined will never equal to how much I hate having to leave Cassie and how I long to spend my days with her.

So how happy do you think I was when I realized I accidentally ripped into my last contact this morning, leaving me unable to drive? For what was the first and probably only time ever, I was actually excited about being legally blind! I quickly got on the phone and left my boss a message explaining to her that I wouldn't be in because I couldn't drive in. And let me tell you, pretending to sound disappointed about calling in was not an easy task!

So instead of heading into work after getting my new contacts, this is how I spent my afternoon:

With my cowgirl, who looks like she's ready for our trip to the rodeo next week!

My Sunshine

After a beautiful and sunny weekend, I am really going to miss my girl when I go back to work tomorrow. I hate Mondays.
