Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday dear JOSH....Happy Birthday to YOU! (better me writing it than singing it)
I just wanted to wish my husband a very happy 25th birthday. He is such an amazing person, husband, and father! I am very lucky to have such a great man in my life. I hope that today brings him all of the wonderful wishes he has! ..... NOW...I have to go and find him a present!
SO LIFT YOUR GLASSES AND CHEERS TO JOSH BEING A QUARTER OF A CENTURY!!
Well October and November are big months in the Massey household! October 17th is mine and Josh's anniversary. October 24th is my birthday. Then there is Halloween. And November 4th is Josh's birthday! WHEW....so much in such a few weeks.
So Halloween has come and gone. For the first time ever I did NOTHING on Halloween. Josh's parents and sister were here for the weekend visiting. It was rather short, but I know they were so glad they got to see Chloe. It has been almost 3 months since they have seen her! While they were visitng we went to the Nascar Hall of Fame and looked at Josh's Brickyard 400 car he built for Jamie McMurray. I know that his parent's were very proud to see his work on display! I know that I am proud of all he has accomplished.
So...as for Halloween...it was a bust. It seems to me like this year no one did anything. Very sad. Does this mean that the traditional days of Trick or Treating has gone? All I heard about kids doing were "Trunk or Treats" at local churchs and schools. Perhaps this is the new norm? We did not have one single little cutie stop off at our house! Good thing I did not buy any candy! (I don't know what I would have done if they did come!, I think I would have found some spare toothbrush laying around!) Chloe however...did get to wear her sweet Costume to daycare. She was MEOW-TIFUL!
So our next big event is Josh's birthday! He is going to be the BIG 25 tomorrow! I cannot believe that he is gonna be a quarter of a century old! I think we are going to celebrate by going to his favorite restaurant for some sushi! Who would have thought that I would turn a bean, corn, and potatoe kinda guy into a sushi lover!! So happy early birthday to my wonderful husband Josh! I love you.
I found out today that my best friend Elizabeth got mugged last night! This is one of those things that you think will never happen to you! She was walking home last night around the River Market in Little Rock Arkansas and a homeless man grabbed her and pulled a knife telling her to give him everything that she has! Luckly a guy happened to walk out of a bar at that time and saw what was happening, yelled scareing off the guy and called the police. Liz was very shaken up but luckly she is safe and nothing was taken from her. So just take a note that things like this can happen to you and you can never be too safe! So ladies...go out and buy you a nice new can of pepper spray, I know that I am.
I cannot believe that November has so quickly approached us all! It has brought about the beautiful fall weather, crisp cool air, and beautiful fall colored leaves. I think that fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It just brings about a comforting and warm feeling. But best of all it means that the holidays are right around the corner.
Last but not least...I wanted to share some of Chloe's 6 month pictures that we had done. They are fantastic. Debby Flores and Jeremy Deal of LunahZon Photography are amazing photographers that did some fantastic work. So two thumbs up for these two magnificent artist. Chloe did so great and they captured some true memories of our litte peanut.
I must make a confession. I am by far the world's worst blogger! I swear. I really wanna be good at this, however, I have so little time! So, to everyone out there reading this, I am soo sorry.
UPDATE! Since my last post so much has happened. Chloe has gotten SO big. I swear she grows in her sleep. She is now a crazy crawling mobile little peanut!. She is always full of so many big smiles that just melt your heart. Clapping is our newest discovery, and everything according to Chloe deserves a big round of applause. I don't know if God could have blessed Josh and I with a more beautiful, fun, and happier baby than Chloe.
Chloe's first Razorback game! Go Hogs
Josh and I recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary by taking a nice little getaway to Charleston, SC. Chloe got to spend the weekend with her DeDe. It was only the second time I have ever been away from her (much needed), and yes, I cried. Despite the sadness...we had a nice time seeing beautiful Charleston and all it has to offer. Great food, beautiful scenery and homes, ghost stories, and lots of water. I would love to go back and do many more things! I cannot believe a year has gone by! Wow..and what a year it has been for us. Many changes have happened...and many more to come in the near future. So, happy one year to my husband Josh, and many more to come.
I am also another year older since my last post as well! October is such a crazy month for us. And Josh's birthday is 2 week after mine...so he is soon to be the big 25! It was a very relaxed birthday. I was woken up with a smile and a card from both my husband and my little munchkin, taken to the mall, and dinner at one of my favorite places. Birthdays just are not what they used to be when you get older....and I really hate that.
WELL....Halloween is on it's way! We normally go to a friends house in a nearby neighborhood where everyone Trick or Treats...but this year, I think we are gonna just stay at home. Josh's family is coming to spend the weekend with us. I cannot wait to get little miss Chloe in her costume! It is a kitty kat, and super precious. I will post pics asap
I guess that is is for now! I promise I will try harder to ensure a better effort in the blogging department.
I know that it has been a while since I have updated...SORRY! Life with a little one is hectic. We made an as always quick trip back to Arkansas last weekend. It was due time for the grandparents to see Chloe. It was a nice relaxing weekend full of family, good friends, and good food. (I hate getting on the scales after going home.)
So I now that Christmas is far away, however, I already know exactly what I want and have not hesitated to let everyone know. SO if I don't get it, then I will know for sure that no one is listening. I have decided that I need a GOOD "big girl" camera. I want a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and i am super pumped about it. Chloe better just brace herself, I am gonna be "that mom" with the camera in her face at all times. I cannot wait! So to all who are concerned...I want money for Christmas to buy THIS camera.
My creative juices just don't get enough work these days, and they are itching to get out here in the last few weeks. This surge is never a good thing. So, I have decided that I need a project of some sort. The problem is, there are too many things that I would really like to do. Most of them take up alot of time, which I don't have, or they cost too much. So here I am stuck with an itch for creativity, and no where to release it. Poo!
Well yesterday I went and saw "Eat, Pray, Love." Let me tell you, this movie made me want to stop my life and sell all I have and travel. Julia Roberts did a great job (as always) of playing such an inspirational character. Elizabeth Gilbert is a very motivating and ambitious character that put the "real" meaning of life into perspective. This movie showed me that there is a wide world out there that most of us here in this small part no nothing about! I really enjoyed this movie and cannot wait to read the book.
SAY WHAT?? Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th. No, I do not suffer from this phobia, however it was quite a day for me.
First off...I went to the doctor because I have completely lost my sense of smell! I have noticed it in the last few weeks and really became concerned about it. Of course googling it did not make matters any better! It said I could have any of the following...
Skitsofrenia, severe head injury, brain tumor, or nasal polyps! I mean...I guess it is never a good idea to google something...it will always give you the worst case senario and bring out the hypochondriac in anyone. Eveyone I work with decided it was definantly Skisofrenia! SO like any concerned person, I called my Doctor.
"Mrs. Massey what seems to be the problem?"
"I think I lost my sense of smell" (pause on the other line)
"Okay, we can get you in at 2!"
How embarassing. My docotor had a good little chuckle when I told her, but assured me that she did not think that there was anyway that I have a brain tumor nor was I Skitsofrenic. (though many would disagree.) All it was was severe inflammation and nothing a round of steroids wouldn't cure. GREAT! Steroids, one more thing that is gonna make me fatter. OH well...hopefully now I can smell again.
Also, last night was the first of many to come. ..Chloe threw a huge fit while we were out to dinner. I was so embarassed. We had to get our food to go! I didn't know, nor do I still know what happened? It was like someone snuck up and pinched her, and WHAM....Chloe freaked out. She never does this. I mean it was one of those back arching, breath holding, break a swet kind of fits. We were kind enough to go outside and ask for our food to go and let the rest of the restaurant eat in peace.
The best part of my day however was receiving this great picture of my precious little peanut!
Photo by Debby Flores! SHE is awsome. Check her out at Lunahzon.com
All in all my Friday the 13th did not bring about any phobic feelings, ghost, or freakish hauntings, just an average day in our circus of a life!
Just wanted to say a big congrats to my friend Mary. She just finished her last final exam in Nuclear Medicine School and passed with flying colors! I am so proud of her. Now she is done with college! WHOOO HOO!
