Happy Memorial day and birthday to me!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. This past week was pretty busy with all the showings on our house; which we have to leave for each time. We had 4 showings one day! It's great, but also a little stressful to keep the house perfect all the time, and be out of the house (especially if its during dinner or close to bed time! lawsy lou!) So, it's Sunday night right now and I dont know what Edwin has cooked up for my birthday tomorrow! I know I get to pick where we go for lunch, and he took me shopping to pick out what I wanted for my birthday. That was fun! 

Besides a bunch of showings this past week and weekend, we went swimming at our cousins; Chuck and Misty's house on Saturday during a few of the showings. Edwin and the boys were playing basketball and Keira was still in the pool. Misty and I both had our clothes on and were just sitting and talking; watching Keira in the hot tub (she took her floaties off, because she could reach the bottom of the hot tub). I guess she forgot she didnt have her floaties on and she got into the big pool. We were still watching her, but she was just on the steps. She can also swim well enough, to swim to the edge if she fell in! All of a sudden she jumped off the steps and started to swim out; than started sinking. I think she got freaked out that her floaties weren't on; because she could swim back to the edge, if she wasn't in shock! She expected to float, but sank instead, and that scared her. I ran down the pool steps to get her out; clothes, shoes, watch, and all! 
Good thing I was with Misty so she could give me some clothes to change into; and laughs! It was ONLY funny, because I got her before she even went under water and she was fine. It took her a few minutes to calm down though, and realize she was okay. 

Last but not least, Edwin decided to cook dinner for me tonight (I was just planning on making spaghetti). 
This is how it started (it ended yummy though!)

Cinderella, Cinderella; you can't go to the ball until everything is cleaned!
What a good man. Cooked dinner, cleaned up his mess, and did the dishes. I also got an early birthday candle in my garlic bread! haha.
Kai's kindergarten graduation is this Thursday, so I'm planning on making some graduation cookies. You'll have to check my cooking blog for the recipe and pictures!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great Memorial Day! I'm now the big 28. I feel wiser already....


  1. Happy Birthday!!! You're only a few months older than me. I'll be 28 in Sept. We close on our house that we're selling in Ohio on Wednesday. Hope you guys get it sold soon.

  2. Happy Birthday!! I hope it is a great one -- you deserve it!!


  3. Now those pictures are just funny. Edwin, you're just darn adorable. Michelle, we'll call you in the morning! Enjoy opening your birthday box! Happy Birthday to you!! We Love you!

  4. Now I'm laughing all over again...all I can say is you got quick instincts, girlie! Noone will ever get the full picture without a visual of you with a wet line that went to your chest! Too bad your camera wasn't handy! And you're right, it's only funny b/c Keira was ok! Happy Birthday...have a great one!

  5. Happy Birthday Michelle! Hope you have a GREAT day!
    So glad to hear Keira's OK. Bless her heart...I know that's scary. (for you too!) Sorry you had to get soaked...that's 2 days of getting wet by the pool! :0 From now on you if you are going to be in close proximity to a pool, you might want to put on your suit just to be on the safe side!!!! lol (Bruce told me about the diving board incident....OOPS...what can I say?.....he's really just a big kid!) Happy 28th!
