All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Happy Birthday to me!!

Yep, the big 3-8! Some of my past birthdays:
age 8: My family was staying at the beach in Niceville, FL. My dad fixed me a homemade German Chocolate Cake, and I loved it! It's still my favorite cake, especially with the homemade icing. Unfortunately, I'm getting a Duncan Hines German Chocolate cake today... at least it's a cake, right?
age 18: My parents took me and my bestest friend, Kenna (who just so happened to have her sweet Ella on July 18, 2003...), to Red Lobster in Austin. I think we went to the Highland Mall afterwards, or maybe Barton Creek Mall, or maybe both.
I thought I was soooooooooo cool!
age 28: I was 6 months pregnant with Jacob, and very hot. Literally... no pun intended! LOL!! That summer just so happened to be record-breaking heat wave, and it was horrible! We
rented a house with only window units, so I was not always a happy camper. I so do not even remember my birthday that year because I think the heat fogged my brain or something!
