Bennett was baptized last Saturday and it was a nice little "service". We had it at my Parents' house and were hoping to have it outside, but the weather told us otherwise. I didn't get any super good pictures because I didn't really have anyone around that could take pictures like I would have wanted, but that's okay. The end result is still the same. I will be dressing B up in his little outfit and hat again this weekend though... and taking some more pictures myself. I need to document it somehow!!! I will admit that I almost cried because it felt so good to watch him be blessed... 

My little sister and her boyfriend were in town as they are his Godparents. They flew in on Friday and left yesterday. It's always nice to have them in town. My sister is a riot. She always says the funniest things! Sunday we celebrated an array of events...Liz's Birthday, Michael's Birthday, My Birthday, Father's Day (for my Dad), Belated Mother's Day, my Parents' Anniversary (sort of), and Bennett's 1/2 birthday (sort of again). It was a lot to fit into one day, but it worked out in the end. Now that we already did that, I feel like I don't even have a birthday coming up, but I do. I will be 28... 24 on Sunday. ya ya ya... okay, fine. I will be 28. But I feel like I should be 24...so there! :-P
I'm not sure what we're going to do... probably nothing special. We are planning to go to dinner at Benihana on Saturday night, just Patrick & myself to celebrate. If you aren't signed up, you should be... the "Chef's Table" and you will get a coupon e-mailed to you for your birthday month which is good for a free dinner!!! (Up to 30$ value) I love deals, so this is right up my alley. :) Of course I am going to be taking advantage of this. I also cannot resist their shrimp sauce... can any human??

I got a lot of cool stuff for my birthday and look forward to using my new Shape-Up shoes soon! (thank you and love you, Patrick!) 

We found a house and are hoping to finalize everything soon. Such an exciting, yet stressful time in our lives. Just trying to keep my sanity during all the chaos. Happy Tuesday.


  1. Sounds like you've been busy living life! Good luck with everything coming up and keep us updated when you can. And 28 is an awesome age! I'm 28 and love it. I feel so young and I'm actually really looking forward to turning 29 and even 30. Yikes! I have no idea why turning 30 sounds exciting and fun. Ask me again in another 14 months or so!

  2. Bennett is so cute. (I found your blog off of my friend's blog list. I'm also on Babycenter.com. Hope you don't mind me following your blog!)


  3. Sounds super busy!
    Funny, I also got some shape up shoes for my birthday! I got the Reebok easytones! I'm going for a walk today to try them out :)

  4. Happy early birthday!!

    That's such a great picture of little B! I can't wait to see pics in his baptismal outfit!

  5. Sounds like you had a crazy busy weekend! Glad to hear everything went well. Lucky you you get to celebrate turning "24" twice....lol. I turned 28 in January...It sounds wrong to me...haha. Hope you have a great birthday though. Congrats on the house!!!!! YAY!

    Can't wait to see the pictures of his outfit. the one you have up is cute though, as always!

  6. Tell me how the shape up shoes are!! I almost bought them the other day and then changed my mind. Happy early birthday! I look forward to new pics of the little guy.
