Birthdays, baby shower, and rainy days off...

Hopefully this weekend was the culmination of my busy month...until a family wedding on February 20th. This weekend was full of blessings!

Friday night my entire family was all together. It has been a few months since that's happened. We celebrated my beautiful mother's 55th birthday. I am so blessed to have this amazing woman in my life. She has taught me so many things about life and I am honored to call her my mother and my friend. We blessed her with a new sewing machine. I am also blessed by the CRAZY people that I call family. I think I am the luckiest person to blessed with such amazing people. I cooked dinner at my sister's house for everyone!
On Saturday I was able to bless my beautiful friend with a fun and sassy baby shower. 5 of us girls got together to throw THE BEST baby shower EVER!! Our theme was zebra print and hot pink and we had so much fun blessing Jessica and baby Sarah Marie. I am again honored to have all of these beautiful women in my life. I couldn't do it without you girls!!
On Sunday I was felt like I could finally breathe again after the last month of holidays, family emergencies, birthdays, baby showers, etc. I took quite a few hours to clean up my cluttered and neglected house.

Today was my day off and I organized my closet! I took things to Goodwill and traded in some books at the used book store.

I'm looking forward to getting back to normal life...that is until the FUN family wedding that we have coming up in a month.

Looking back on this weekend I feel extremely blessed to have the amazing women in my life that I do. I was a little saddened on Saturday because I was not involved in the baby shower of a person who I used to hold so dear in my life. I thought that I would one day be involved in the birth of her children. However, God gave me a beautiful reminder that I am still so loved and treasured and that I am surrounded by people who can see that I also am a beautiful treasure in their lives. I was able to bless my amazing friend Jessica with what I consider to be THE BEST baby shower around. It didn't matter that I wasn't able to be involved in this other person's baby shower.

Here's to the amazing women in my life!!


  1. Love you Joc!!! I wish we were able to see each other more often...but I enjoyed our time together on Saturday! And yes, it was THE BEST baby shower ever!!!

  2. You girls rock! Thank you for blessing me beyond belief!
