rest of my birthday and my wicked awesome time in Dallas!

First of all, i need to tell you about our trip to dallas, it was about a month ago. we went to do the susan g. komen in dallas, it kinda holds a special place in our hearts and memories together. bonus, we got to spend time with di and angel, my sister and parental units. so we stayed the night with the quints on friday and saturday. it was so nice to be around them again. they are truely a blessing to us and we are so blessed to have them in our lives. so we got in and went to dinner at campisi's (honestly next to my friends is what i miss most about dallas), then we went back to their house and i ironed on letters on a shirt for noah for the race, since i don't really believe in ironing, i had to wait until we got there because we don't have an iron. angel was attempting to sew on patches to his uber cool scout uniform. he actually sews alot better than i can. then we all kinda crashed and got up the next morning really early. di had school and angel had a scout thing he was doing. we went to the race and i must say i did alot better than i thought i would. i finished in 1 hour and 24 minutes! isaac finished in 24 minutes-overachiever! it was good and they had all kinds ok SWAG, but people were getting really crazy with it and like pushing people and yelling, it was really not cool. i even saw this lady yelling and a survivor-really super not cool. people were piling in fruit, yogurt and water into their bags like it was the end of the world and that was the last bit of food left. we got lost from eachother for about an hour, which really stinks because i didn't have my phone. it was a big mess, but when the crowd dwindled we finally found eachother, it was a beautiful moment. we went back to take showers and meet up with my sister and her friend jenn to go to the fair. we had a good time, except it felt like the surface of the sun. i always forget why we don't go in the afternoon until we are already there. however, i did get my corndog that i didn't get last year. we don't really go to play games and such, we go for food and for the car show. we looked and dreamed about the cars we will get when isaac gets out of school and it was really fun. we also indulged in a shared turkey leg and ice cream. life was good but we were so tired from the race that i am not sure we were in the right mind set for fair time. we then headed back to the quints to meet up for dinner. we went to BJ's with my parents, sister, jenn and the quints. it was really nice to spend time with all the people we love. we then we BACK to the quints for a nice saturday night rest. it was a long day and the rest was more than welcome. we got up on sunday and got ready for church, we couldn't stay the whole time, but we were excited to be back in our old ward. angel and di made us french toast for breakfast and it was truely a treat. di introduced me to corn syrup on french toast, which is really good. we went to sacrament and then we headed home. when we got home we just poured ourselves into the couch, it was a bittersweet moment, we were glad to be home, but sad to leave the company of family and our best friends.
Now, my birthday! work was good, I had a big ticket client come in, so that was really nice. Then, we went to Buca di Beppo (my traditionaly b-day spot next to Texas Land & Cattle). we had coupons for an appetizer and a dessert for my b-day, hey I am not above coupons. we got my $40 b-day dinner for $20!!! I am not complaining. I got "the holiday", a gel bicycle seat and cute new booties to keep my toes warm. i loved all my gifts, my sweetheart knows me so well and always gets things i can use. then we went home and watched TV. it was such a nice birthday. so now, i have caught you up hope you enjoy.

It's my birthday!!!

Yeah!!! I am so glad, ok so I am a little sad I am so close to 3o, but you can't really avoid it. The daytime doesn't really feel very special to tell you the truth. Isaac has to work and we have no family and not really alot of friends down here. So, it is just like any other friday. Went grocery shopping and taking care of Noah. Although, I am going to try to get out and get myself a new birthday outfit. I have to work tonight...I know it gets better and better. After that I get to go on a date with my two favorite boys for dinner. i am really excited! The best thing is I do have Noah this year, las year I can remember being so preggers and so ready to have him and this year we get to share all those special moments together. I did get new borthday hair lastnight, which is really nice. I know I sound kinda down, but it has actually not been such a bad day. Will write more and let you know how the whole day was. OOh, i did get one of my birthday presents..."Shopaholic and Baby", I am excited I finally get to finish the whole series.

Mi Vida Loca

Ok, so I know that I owe an explaination as to why I haven't posted in a while. Here we go.
They sent me to an endocrinologist to find out what is going on with my "lazy thyroid", come to find out it's not lazy it's almost dead...humm...wish Lee Pace would come and bring it back to life (Pushing Daisies joke). So they bumped up my meds a whole lot and so far I am feeling much better. Still need some work but much better.
In other news and possibly the most stressful, my daddy was having some chest pains last week and went to the doctor. He can't have stress tests because it literally almost kills him, so they were supposed to order a heart cath. He gets to the hospital where he was supposed to have his heart cath and what did they order? That's right, a stress test, so he didnt' have it done. Flash Forward to the next day and he gets a heart cath. Come to find out he has a 70% blockage in the back of his heart so they can't get to it any other way but surgery. You guessed it...Bypass surgery number 3!!! ON HALLOWEEN!!! So, I drive 6 hours with Noah on Thursday night and got to Tyler around 11 or so, went to bed around 1 got up at 4:45 to get ready to got to the hospital. He went into surgery at 7 and everything went really well and what was supposed to be a single bypass turned into a triple bypass. I had to leave before he got out of surgery, but they were wiring him back together when I left so I felt pretty good about leaving. Anyhow, he is doing well with the possibility of going home tomorrow.
Anyways, I will write about our super awesome tubular time in Dallas pretty soon, I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on.
