So my hubby came home to us for good, from Korea a week ago today. WE couldn't be happier!
Austin hasn't wanted anything to do with me since his daddy stepped off the plane but I understand. Its been non stop fun with dad! Between playing the Wii , Tech Deck stuff and all his new speed racer cars they went out and bought . Austin doesn't think there are enough hours in the day! We have also been going to the baseball field in the evenings when it cools off a bit. I am trying to keep him hyped up about our move to Japan (he is a bit sad ) Baseball starts a few days before we get there and I intend to get him playing right away , so he makes new friends soon after we arrive.
I have been busy with all the moving details and I think after a few phone calls to update our new address all will be done...finally. The movers get here on the 10th of June and should have everything packed and gone on the 13th . Its all happening rather quickly!
I am excited for our little trip to LA before we leave , with our great FRIENDS the RODARTES .
I am not sure how I would have ever survived this past year without Maria or her hubby !
We will be spending Fathers Day out on the SANTA MONICA PIER with the kids
Then we are going to take them to the TAR PITS
and other touristy stuff that's fun for kids. Hopefully Maria and I will have enough free time to stop in to Sweetpeas&Snapshots !
We will say our goodbyes in California and head up to Seattle to see my mother in law and her 2 sons before flying over to Okinawa. I will have the laptop and be checking in on the blogs from time to time and maybe making a few quick posts.
Tonight us girls are doing dinner and going to see the much anticipated SEX AND THE CITY which I have to admit ... I have never watched a single episode! Cant pass up hanging out with the girls though!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

- I can hardly believe in a month I will be leaving AZ and on my way to Japan. We have everything pretty much ready to go , movers scheduled, flights arranged and we went in and got lots of shots (OH WHAT FUN) but better safe than sorry. My wonderful hubby will be home soon (11 days)and I am so ready to have him back for good! A year is a very long time....
- Oh musnt forget that the sweet hubby that he is sent me gorgeous red roses
- I think then I will be able to get excited about our new adventures to come!
- For now I am too busy separating what we need to take and what needs to stay in storage, not a very fun task !
- Oh and on a side note if anyone is looking for a new summery scent , I was given MARC JACOBS PEAR from another great friend and let me tell you , its SO YUMMY!
Well that's all for now. I guess I should get washing the laundry that wont wash itself, oh that would be a WONDERFUL MOTHERS DAY PRESENT ...lol!

Wow its been a while since I have even been able to sit down and read any blogs or post on my own. I know I owe a few emails as well , didn't forget you all. I just had a rather busy ON THE GO kind of week.
I turned the big 34 last week . Eww ..haha!
It was a wonderful week though, lots of shopping and lunches with friends. A wonderful birthday night out including a fabulous dinner at a Italian restaurant , put together by my wonderful amazing friend MARIA. I cant tell you how much fun that was ! I will have to post about the most wonderful thoughtful gift she gave me as soon as I take photos or get all the photos emailed to me from the other night. Needless to say just reading the CARD I CRIED!!!! I love you girl!!!!
Then we all headed out to the SANDBAR for some drinks and dancing. Thanks again to all of my wonderful friends for such a great night!!! I love you all :)
I received my JUNQUE SWAP from BRITT and have yet to take any pics, but that's on the list of must does this week too..haha!
Short post for today though, I am supposed to be getting ready for my girls day lounging by the pool. Lots of yummy food and relaxing with friends for CINCO DE MAYO!
Be back soon!!
