Laughter & Hockey

I do not know how I got so lucky to have such a happy, healthy baby! She brings us so many smiles and joy!! Here is a quick video of her riding her 4wheeler Santa brought her! Her laughter is Priceless!

On another note, I went to my first Areos Hockey game last nigh! It was sooo much fun! My brother, who is now working for Toyota has great hookups for any event going on at the Toyota Center! We had special seats in a huge suite with free drinks and private seats! It was really fun! The arena wasn't really filled so we were able to go down lower to get front row seats up against the glass - it was so exciting to have the players slamming into the glass, right in front of us! We lost, but it was still fun! Here is another video, of a score! You can hear can hear the die hard fans yelling "SHOOT THE PUCK" and then everyone bangs on the glass when they score!!!

This was taken from our original, suite seats!

Front Row Seats!!!

I can't wait to go back!!!

Cookoff, Superbowl, Birthday, Valentines, Oh My!

So last weekend (2/5) was the Humble Rodeo Cookoff! I went out to support our friends, Caddy Shack Cookers and hang out!! The food was SO yummy and the drinks weren't bad either! We had a lot of friends and family up there (although James wasn't able to go, he had to be up early Saturday for work) to hang out with so it was a lot of fun!!
Saturday (2/6) Bridget and a few other friends went to see Dear John. It was such a good movie, heavy on my emotions though! I cried like a baby through most of the movie. I haven't cried in a movie in a long time!
Sunday (2/7) We went and had Cori's Valentine pictures done!! It was also the Superbowl! We had a party at the house to watch the game. I became a bandwagon fan of the Saints and to my surprise they won! It was a fun game, even though I never watch football! James cooked hot dogs for everyone so it was nice to hang out. That was a busy buys weekend! Monday came fast and early!!
Isn't she the cutest?
This one is my favorite!!
When did she get so big??

This this past week was pretty eventful as well!
I turned 24 on Thursday (2/11). It was just another day though! Now that I have Cori, birthday's are for her! I went to work as usual and then later that night, Yaya watched Cori so James and I could go have dinner and a few margaritas! It was nice to just have time with my husband - he makes me laugh so much!! My boss brought me a cake and a gift card to Pappas so that was exciting too!
Friday (2/12) Another trip to the dermatologist for Cori too - I have HAD IT with this spot on her back that will not go away. I can not afford more prescriptions that don't work, and copay's to see a doctor that tells you the same thing as last time! I'm getting aggressive towards this spot now. I bought her new soap, and lotion to use, clothes detergent and these huge waterproof band aids and I'm piling on the ointment and taping her up! I don't think she'll be able to get these band aids off! The small ones she gets off easily so we'll see with the big ones, so far so good! I am so tired of packing away NEW clothes that she's never worn and outgrown b/c I have to keep her looking like a scrub in onsies, so she doesn't scratch! Prayers for the stubborn spot on her back are appreciated! She now has a new spot on her shoulder....ahhhh it's never ending!
Saturday (2/13) was an awesome day! This is the day we celebrated Valentines (as a whole family! Well, minus Cori.....she went and spent the night with James' mom) We made reservations at HB Steakhouse - Japanese Hibachi style food! They cooked for us on the table we were sitting at. It was SO delicious, expensive, but so worth it. My daddy paid for everyone's dinner! Then, we all (myself, James, my brother, SIL, mom and dad) headed downtown to see STOMP. That was amazing! I went a long time ago when we went to New York but I had forgot just how fun it was! The whole time, I was wishing I could do something like that for a living - the people on stage looked like they were having so much fun! We then headed back to our side of town and found a small taven in Old Town Humble to have a few drinks at. Its not often that I get to hang out with my mom in the night life because she usually has Cori when we go out - so it was fun! That place got a little boring so we went to Mulligans for some Karaoke - well we just watch the karaoke....It was fun! I had a bad headache and was exhausted so we snuck out early and went home to get in bed!
Sunday (2/14) was so nice! I slept in until NOON - I haven't done that in years!!! Got up did a little bit of laundry and then my little Valentine came home!!! I missed her so much! Its so different when she goes to James' mom - she seems so far away. My mom lives 3 houses down so when she's over there it doesn't even feel like she's gone. James cooked us steaks for dinner last night and we hung out around the house and watched some tv. Monday morning came toooooo soon today! Oh and btw, I think I saw a ghost in my bedroom this morning....seriously. I'll write a whole blog for that one!

I can't believe I didn't take many pictures this week!

Its been a while!

I have a lot to update.

Last weekend was not a good weekend for us. Cori was sick all weekend and Monday. She couldn't keep anything down and just kept throwing up. Poor baby, I feel so bad for her because she can't warn us. We took her to the dr. on Monday and he said she had a stomach bug and it would pass on its own. She stayed home from Daycare on Monday. She never had a fever but the vomiting and diarrhea was enough for me to keep her home. She's feeling much better now!

on the 27th, Sydney Wyckoff was born. My childhood friend Ashley and her husband Chet brought their first baby girl into the world. She is soooooo adorable and I can't wait to meet her. They live in Fl. so it will be a while I imagine that I'll get to hold her and kiss her...so Ash...you better keep up with your blog and keep the pictures coming!!!

Friday (1/29) was James' 27th Birthday! James and I both took vacation days to hang out with each other! We started off by Taking Cori to the dr. for her 15 month check up. She is getting so big!!! 25 lbs already! Dr. said she is perfect and her not eating is not a problem. Cori went to daycare after that! We then headed to the post office to renew mine and get James a passport for our cruise! I was so surprised how nice the guy at the post office was!!! He was such a happy guy for his job! After we left there we went to the mall to see Avatar in 3D - such a great movie although I could only watch about 1/2. Stupid motion sickness. I can't wait to see it in full on dvd. It was fun to spend time just James and I. He had friends over for his bday that night, and Cori and I just went to bed early!!! I love early bed nights!

Us seeing Avatar in 3D!

Saturday, I stayed home in bed most of the day. I was feeling really icky. Sore throat and head ache. I was hoping it was strep, but no one else in my family seems to be bothered by it. I've lost my voice too! It was nice to stay in my jammers alll day long! We went to my brothers Saturday night for dinner, and it turned into a bunch of friends hanging out! I went away from my diet with my Bud Lite Lime....it was fun at the time, but man, I feel so guilty now! Gotta get back on track. Speaking of Diet, I've lost 7 lbs so far....still working hard and have a long way to go!

Sunday was pretty un-eventful too! I tried my hand at some cabbage soup. It was soooo delicious! I made enough to feed my entire family - everyone really enjoyed it and it was super yummy and healthy!!! I even have lefts overs here at work with me for lunch today!

So today starts the month of LOVE, and my Birthday!!! I'll be 24 in 11 days... My mom got us all tickets to see Stomp on the 13th so I am really looking forward to it!!!

I think that is all for now....if something exciting happens, I'll update =)
