10/25: Friday faves

Hi friends! Let’s all do the Friday dance! Or the piñata dance? I’m just now getting a chance to get to the computer, since Livi and I had to rush on base early this morning. I had to get some blood work done, and since kids are no longer allowed in the base clinic (so…

Happy birthday, Pilot

You’re kind of like a fine wine. 😉 Thank you for taking such wonderful care of your family, of our love, and for always supporting my crazy dreams and ideas. (Even when you tell me, “Gina… that doesn’t make any sense.”) It’s been a crazy eight years, and I have a feeling things will continue…

Livi’s first birthday party

We spent a large portion of our Monday hanging out with family and friends, playing in kids-friendly exhibits, eating pizza, cupcakes, (I had them set up on beautiful silver cupcake tiers and forgot to take a pic. Womp womp) oh, and making slime! 😉  Today we had our *big* party for Livi’s first birthday at…

Books, babies and bows.

Some of Livi’s favorite things 🙂 It was an amazing day to celebrate an amazing little girl. Lots of “Happy Birthday” singing in the morning, breakfast together and then after her first nap, we headed to the zoo. The weather was gorgeous and nana joined us for our adventure. We had a blast walking around-…

Birthday

Welp, another birthday, another year older. Shall we begin the special treatment? Bahaha. Birthday pomp and circumstance makes me a little shy. For starters, whenever anyone draws attention to me and sings “Happy Birthday,” especially if a Japanese drum and fruit boat are involved, I look like a beet afterwards. A card and a cake…

It’s a celebration

(lyrics to one of the songs that was on the “banned from the wedding” list along with “Electric Slide”) Indeed it was 🙂 When the Pilot got home from work, the entire family was here and dinner was hot and waiting. Madre grilled steaks, and I made twice-baked potatoes (with turkey bacon, chives, veggie broth…

Happy Birthday, Pilot

I can’t help but think of birthdays a little differently now. Sure, it’s a great day to celebrate the people you’re close to, but at the same time, I find myself thinking of the nervous anticipation and excitement their parents must have felt. I now know what that feels like, and it’s incredible. So today,…

Birthday Zumba

Good morning! Happy Saturday to you 🙂 Hope you’re having an amazing weekend so far. [She was in another world for that pic, but usually Bell will give me a smug face when the Pilot is petting her. Like “See? I win. Be jealous.”] The Pilot and I got a lot done around the casa…
