Dave's birthday

Dave celebrated his birthday! I had been asking him what he wanted for a while leading up to his day and all he wanted was to be with Kyson and me. I got him a bunch of gifts, took him out for Hibachi, went to the lake, played in the sprinklers, and watched a couple Red Box's.

Even though it was his birthday, it was a day we all needed! 
Happy Birthday baby (3 weeks late)!
I love you!

that girl is back!

So after a few weeks of me time and pondering the true meaning of blogging, I'm back!! I really had to think back and remember why I even started my blog. It wasn't to get comments and followers or to win the latest giveaways. I started my blog to make an online scrapbook, to document my little family's life together. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the comments and followers but that's just a perk :)
It was important for me to focus on what's really important in life and I'm sorry but blogging just isn't one of those things. It is a hobby though!

So what have we been up to the last couple months? Well, we've kept up on our weekly date nights, we've both been crazy busy at work and Kyson is growing so big and getting so smart! Yes my three year old can count to 100. Isn't that insane?! I like to think he's the next Einstein :)

Summer is just around the corner but if you live in the south, it's already here! Today's high in Texas was 104... I got myself quite the tan going on which is awesome since I sail away into the waters of the Caribbean in 18 days!! Speaking of summer, has anywhere else been invaded by butterflies?? They are EVERYWHERE! And they aren't just any butterflies, they're the kind that dive bomb you and go straight for your face! It's freaky!

We leave for our vacation in a week and a half! If you live in North Dakota or Florida we will be there shortly. Let's play! I can't believe my brother in law is leaving for Africa for two whole years in less than two weeks! I'm going to miss that kid.

Dave celebrated his 25th birthday. Hello insurance discount! 

So that's what been going on with us. We've just been soaking up each other! I'm excited to blog about my break in detail but I need to ease back into this haha :)

Thank you everyone for been so supportive and patient.

 Also I am dying for a new look to my blog but I am not computer savvy.. at all! So please send me in the direction of someone fabulous who will give me a blog makeover!! I'm pretty desperate :)

a quick update

Oh how I miss all my bloggy friends!!
Well it's officially spring and we're taking advantage.. A LOT! I just wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone. Dave and I are doing great and I'm definitely enjoying my "break". I've been slammed at work and so has Dave, we've been very busy! We still go on our weekly date nights, twice this week and it's only Wednesday! Only a MONTH until we cruise away. A 3 week vacation is exactly what we need! 

Let's see what else is going on? I've been doing a lot of shopping lately and it's been fabulous! We found a field full of Blue Bonnets and we just had to stop and take some pictures. Check it out:

Amazing right?

I finally, FINALLY got into Instagram and I need some Instagram friends! Let's follow each other: blondemadsen, I also connect through facebook.
 Dallas was hit with multiple tornadoes yesterday!! I live only two hours away and saw nothing but sunshine all day! But that's Texas weather for ya..

I miss all of you and will be back from my bloggy break soon! I just need some more time to soak up my family. After all, I'll never get this precious time back with them . Life is too short and Kyson is growing up SO fast!
