Florida Fun

Last week Scott and I ventured down to Florida. I wish he was able to relax, but he was busy at work with his Hoodz convention. I was able to go and relax, unwind, and spend two days at the spa! We stayed at the Westin Diplomat on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Florida. What an amazing resort.
Each night we would have a social gathering with the other 375 conference attendees. One evening they reserved a yacht. We had dinner, dancing, and lots of fun! 

One of the best reasons to attend these conferences are the people we get to see each year. One of our favorite families are the Sargent's. They live in St. Louis and continue to be lights in our lives. We love you Marty and Roxane!
They truly bless me by bringing Ethan along. He is a 4 year old fire ball. My best friend on the trip is a cute 4 year old boy. We are inseparable during these few days. While everyone is drinking wine and talking to adults, I am at the table playing games and watching Sponge Bob Square Pants with E!

This year they also brought their daughter Eli (short for cute is that) along. Again, we love this family. We hope to make it to their lake home and spend some time out there...SOMEDAY.
The last night there was a cocktail hour and banquet. One of the best parts of Scott's job is, he works with one of my most cherished friends Michael. We have been buddies since college, and now Scott and him work together everyday. The best part about the three of us is we laugh ALL THE TIME.

We were decked in pink to honor Miss Izabelle! She wanted to be out in the pool and beach with all the other kids. She also really loved it when I was at the spa. She kept kicking and letting me know how much she liked being pampered!
Some of my new friends from....where else? The most magnificent city in the world...NEW YORK. We had so much fun chatting about the city, being moms, and family stories that made me laugh until I cried. I am honored to have met such great ladies.

Cheers to our wonderful trip to Sunny Florida. I can't believe another convention has come and gone. Next year there are rumors it will be on the west coast. California perhaps?! 

Father I Adore You...Lay My Life Before You...How I Love You

Last week I went to Clinton to celebrate and participate in their 2011 Confirmation. I was sweet Abby's sponsor. I've known her since she was in kindergarten. She is one of the most beautiful girls inside and out.

I was delighted to participate in her special day.
Abby, I wish you the brightest future. I know you have a beautiful relationship with our heavenly Father. I hope it continues to grow and flourish throughout your days. May you always be surrounded by peace and light. I adore you!
Father I  adore you
Lay my life before you
How I love you

About Me

My photo
Dreams really do come true. I have shared many days with the love of my life, Scott. We met in the winter of 2003 and married in the spring of 2008. We welcomed our sweet bundle of joy to the world August 2011. Izabelle has been a true blessing from our Father. We also have a furry pal named Bernie. I love my family and couldn't be more thankful for friends. My hope is that our blog will help share our days with the ones we love.
