Best 29th Birthday!

Yep, you all heard it 29! One more year to 30 :( Birthdays are so much more exciting with kids, Sami was so happy and excited. I got great gifts and had a very nice dinner at Olive Garden with Paul, Sami, my in-laws, sister-in-law and soon to be brother-in-law!

Dora Show

Samantha is 95% potty trained. Only a diaper at night. For her reward we promised her the Dora Live Show. The only day we could go was on Easter, but it worked out great. We went to the 11am show and with it being Easter we drove into the city in 30min and got out in 45. She had a great time and was very star struck :) I think Daddy had the best time with his Star:)

We're off to see the Wizard.....

Sami's favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz. Last month I saw a commerical that it was coming to Madison Square Garden Theater, so of course we got tickets. Sami had a great time she was so excited. Her favorite part was Munchkin Land and her favorite charater was Toto. After the show we walked around the city, had dinner at Planet Hollywood, took Sami to Toys R Us and went home on the train. We had a great time and Sami says she loved it. This was our test to see if she can sit through a broadway and she did wonderful, so hopefully this summer we take her to Little Mermaid :)

Crazy Hair Day

Every friday at daycare they have a "special" day. This last week was crazy hair day. As you can see she was so excited. When I got her to school, we were the only ones that remembered it :) She was still excited. We also have great news, she is almost completely potty trained! Yeah!!! As her reward Paul and I are taking her on Easter to Radio City Music Hall for the Dora Live Show, she is so excited. I am so happy that in April and May when we come to Utah no diapers to have to worry about! Yeah! :)

Daddy's Girl

Sami is definitely Daddy's Girl. Lately every day when he comes home from work she hides in the dining room to jump out yelling boo. Paul will act all scared and she gets the biggest kick out of it. It is so sweet to see the beautiful bond they have. She has always been a very loving snugly baby, but lately she is very loving, especially with her Daddy. I hope you all enjoy the pic, I think it is one of my favorites! :)

The Challenge is On!

Paul and I started a weight loss challenge January 6th to May 19th. As you all may know we have Megan's wedding May 28th and Dani's (my cousin) wedding in St. George June 5th. I am the Maid of Honor for both weddings & Paul is an groomsmen in both. We figured we better get our hineys in gear! For a little motivation, at the end of the 20 weeks, the person who lost the most percentage (to be fair) of weight gets to take $1,000 from our savings account and do what ever they want with it. This first week went great, we ate very good, didn't even cheat once :) I have been working out every morning for 40 min on the elliptical, every night for 50 min and with my weight trainer on friday nights. Paul has been working out when he can, but he has been very busy with work and working late hours. We had our first weigh in last night and my hard work paid off, I lost 5.6lbs, Paul lost 2 lbs which was great considering he only was able to work out one night. I am way above my goal! Wish me luck, I want that $1,000! :)
