Thankful November {November 17}

Day #17

Today I am thankful for the 11 years of marriage I am so lucky to have had with my husband. What an adventure we’ve had. Two kids, moving across the world, twice! I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. I love you, Omar!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

 

Some of my favorite pictures from our wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fall day to get married. Really can’t believe that was eleven years ago. So happy to have the rest of our lives together. I love you baby.

Day #16

Today I am thankful whatever cleaning bug got into me that enabled me to clean my house. Or at least my first floor. It’s amazing how much less stressed I feel when my house is tidy. Now if only I could keep it that way!

Soccer is OVER!

So Omar had his end of season soccer pizza party. It was a sad day because these boys had an awesome soccer season. We had a great coach and a great team. Unfortunately the coach is deploying so he won’t be able to coach next season. Military member heavy sports teams have downfalls!

So we got the boys together, had pizza, drinks, and dessert. They got to play on the playground and we got to reminisce about the season. One loss!

I felt bad because we hadn’t talked about doing a coaches gift, so at the last minute we picked up a green (our team color) lei. And a card. And then I felt awesome because we were the only family to do anything. (Yes I am such an ass, I know)

Omar got a pretty cool trophy that he can’t wait to put on his trophy shelf (whenever I get one hung up).

We really had a great season with these kids and are looking forward to either playing with them or playing against them next season. (January! When BOTH kids are going to be in soccer!)

Day #15

Today I am thankful for another birthday. It has been a wonderful year since my last birthday and I am looking forward to what the next year has in store!

Birthday Girl!

Yay, it’s my birthday!

So I had no plans for my day, was just hanging out at home, but my mom would hear none of that!

She told me to get my booty outta the house and get some alone time in at the beach. I hemmed and hawed but finally got into gear and was off.

All I have to say is: Thanks, Mom. Genius plan.

 

I also stopped to grab myself some birthday lunch (T-dragon roll for the win). All in all not a bad birthday if I do say so myself.

 

Came home to some surprises left on my doorstep! Nothing like flowers to make a girl feel a little better about getting older!

From my darling husband. Man I love me some tulips! They are just starting to open and are beautiful.

Also got some sweets:

 

 

Mckenna was confused by the box. It said on the side: ‘contents may disappear after opening’.

From my mom I got some fabulously fragrant lilies.

 

Every time I have fresh flowers in my house I ask myself why I don’t have fresh flowers more often. (And then of course realize it’s because they are way too expensive!)

So even though it just ended up being me and the kids for my birthday, it was a pretty good day. Looking forward to next year when I’ll have my husband home to celebrate with.
