Mr. Romantic

Mondays are hard to get moving, right? I always feel like I'm carrying an extra 50 pounds. This last Monday was no different, it was a rough one for me. Until after school......I pull up to the house (around 4:00) and notice Taylor's truck in the drive way. YAY! He's home early. I proceed to walk into the kitchen where I notice a single rose and a card. I immediately started thinking, "oh, crap! What special day did I forget?" I opened the card and started reading. I'll spare you the details, but basically my adorable hubby asked me to go on date with him. Our date was scheduled for Wednesday night at 8:00pm. Kinda late for a school night but of course I agreed to go.
Wednesday came. I had a meeting that evening so I wasn't going to be home until around 8:00. To my surprise, I came home to the lights off, kids in bed, and no babysitter. Taylor greeted me at the door and asked if I was ready to go. He then walked me into the kitchen and sat me down at the kitchen table. He magically pulled out "take out" from AZUMA! My favorite restaurant right now. He then pulled out candles and champagne glasses (for Martinellis). Awwww! My heart melted! He knew just what I needed after a hard week. After dinner we watched a movie. It was a late night but well worth it!
I love my Taylor. He is so romantic. Always full of surprises and always knows how to make me laugh. I love you babe! Thanks for the great evening.

Monday Morning Confession

Now that the kids are back in school I find myself with lots of time on my hands. You'd think that would mean I have completed a ton of projects, such as cleaning out closets, rearranging bedrooms, organizing drawers but NO. It actually means the opposite. I am thoroughly enjoying sitting around and being lazy. I occasionally get up to feed myself or play with Eli but for the most part we are worthless. Eli is demanding and it takes everything in me to care for him during the day. I need a dose of motivation! Anyone know where I can get some??

Cody Wayne turns 5

Yesterday August 11th was Cody's birthday. I can't believe he is 5 years old. Where has time gone?!! We love our little Cody man! He is such a sweet boy (when he wants to be). He has always loved cuddling with me. He offers the greatest hugs and kisses. He can be quite a brute with other kids but all in all he is a wonderful guy. We love you C-DO!!!!

He thought he was pretty special when I showed up at his class with a treat. After school we had a family party for him. He chose to go to Dions for dinner. We came home, opened presents, and ate cake and ice cream. He had about a million phone calls from family and friends. By the end of the day he was tired of talking. To those of you who tried to call, thank you very much and I'm sorry he wouldn't chat.
