All family’s come with their own annoyances and aggravations and yes, we did have our moments at times where we did get under each other’s skin, but I have to say it was a pretty darn good vacation for us Balla’s (My maiden name.) It was hard for my dad who had just broken his leg three weeks back, but he did ok and did his best to join us out at the pool every once in a while.
Driving down on my birthday wasn’t the best thing in the world, but I got over it. Kate, (my sis-in-love) not only wrote me the most wonderful poem on her blog, but also gave me an adorable shirt with a hot head band to go with and also surprised me with another gift when we got down there. It was a HOT sexy purple dress!! You saw it on my silent Sunday post a week back. I LOVE THAT DRESS. Thanks babe!!
My other sister-in-love gave me a gift certificate to my favorite spa to get a facial. LOVE their facials!! And my mom and dad… well, they haven’t given me that present yet. My mom is giving me a tattoo!!! We wanted to do it down there, but it was too crazy; so hopefully we will be getting that done at home soon. We’ll see!! :)
My amazing friend Kasey also wrote this thing on her blog for me. She is like a sister to me and I cried when I read it. She is a blessing to me and it really touched my heart! To top it off she also got engaged last Friday and I was SO excited for her. I saw her on Saturday after we got back and took pictures of the lovely ring. You can see it on my photography blog if you want! Her man did a good job!!! ;)
There is so much I could say about this week… but I think I’ll just leave you with a few pictures to round off the week. All these pictures are all on the same day, but… it sums up a lot.
Birthday dinner and the Beach!
And Jayden playing with his Uncle's cigar!!Ok, so I know this looks bad. The boys were having cigars and Jayden when up and wanted to be like the big boys and put the cigar in his mouth. It was too funny not to take a picture. I mean... look at it. In his mouth the first picture and then LOOK at that face in the second?!?!? He wanted to be one of the guys!!! It was hysterical. Don't worry... this was not lit! :)
When I got home, I was surprised with a gift from a blogger friend Kayla as well. I got a gift certificate to Starbucks! So thanks dear! I really missed blogging this week, but it was some good much need time with the fam! I have been doing my best to catch up on all of you from last week. Hope you all are having a great week!!
