Happy Birthday to You...

Happy Birthday to my sweet, amazing, wonderful fiancé!

I hate that I am not there with you (I left for San An today to take my dance kiddos to their national dance competition) but wanted to give you a little blog shout out!

Ricky and I haven't shared very many birthdays with each other even though we have been dating a little over 6 years. His birthday fell on the Miss Texas Pageant the first 4 years we were dating and on this nationals for 2 others, so the ONE birthday of his we were together I threw him a big surprise party. And my bday is 11 days before Christmas, or final exam week for SMU law school (my last 4 birthdays) and undergrad the one before that. So Ricky if you are reading... I am totally due for an awesome surprise party this next year, wink, wink...

As I prep for the LONGEST day of competition tomorrow I couldn't help but think about my special man on his special day. It was literally love at first sight as I saw him across the room and asked to be introduced by a mutual friend 6 years ago and here we are, planning our wedding. I could not imagine my life without him or picture a more perfect, wonderful man to spend my life with. He is the calm in my storm, my voice of reason, my reason for love and he makes me laugh...

And when I am 80 I can't think of any two better things to have shared with your life partner, love and laughter.

I am so thankful for him and to celebrate another wonderful year of his life.

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses...

Hello Blogworld, sorry for my short term hiding. I have had a crazy last month, but am almost done... I promise!

I don't think I have touched base since before Memorial Day! Wow! So bad.

Well my fiancé was working on a big trademark project for the BBB so he was taking out laptop into work everyday, excuse 1 why I haven't been able to write.

Then for Memorial day we headed to the beach with some of our dear friends, Ricky's Best Man and his girlfriend Erica, for a much needed weekend getaway. It was a blast, but also served as excuse #2.

Then we put our house on the market, #3...

I had my recital... so amazing but seriously like 4 days of nothing but work. #4

Then I had a week off whoo-hoo.... But Ricky has been studying for the bar, so while I was pool side and off lunching with friends he was working on the good ole computer. #5

And then I had the most insane week of my life. We started back summer dance, had nationals rehearsal and had Miss Texas Dance Troupe rehearsal.(excuse #6, #7 & #8)

So today and tomorrow I will be wrapping up the Miss Texas biz, Wednesday I will leave to take my kids to nationals for a week and THEN I will be WHOLE HEARTEDLY BACCCCKKKK! Whoo-hoo! I can't wait. Maybe, just maybe we should do a giveaway to celebrate my return!

Wow... it feels like forever since I have been here. Don't hate me, sorry! These last few weeks have been crazy for us. Ricky has been working on some important stuff regarding trademark laws for the BBB and has taken our laptop to work almost every day, boo. Not to mention we have been getting the house ready to put on the market TODAY... and having done it for the first time I think it is more work than actually moving... and I am over it! ha!

However, we did have a wonderfully refreshing weekend away with some great friends and were able to celebrate 6 years of dating bliss together. Whoohoo! So glad that we will be newlyweds during the so called '7 year itch'! I promise a full recap later this week of our trip to the beach with Ricky's Best Man Jon and his sweet, sweet, sweet gf Erica!

I am a little overwhelmed with all of the fun, exciting, exhausting stuff going on in June... here are a few of the highlight... hope we get though it and that I have a few moments to blog between them all!
