Loan #21 Paid Off

HML #21 was paid off last week so those funds are now looking for a new home. My other three loans are paying on time.

Still haven't received the March financials for the Houston apartment complex. They seem to be coming later and later these days. I know the management company reduced staff to help with the cashflow and I'm wondering if this is a result of that.

Happy Monday!

Wow this weekend has flown by!

Lots going on ... fun stuff and work ... so it was a good mix :)

Most importantly, I am aunt :) My cousin/sweetest/favorite person in the entire world had her sweet baby boy this weekend and he is ADORABLE!

Henry Graham Hatfield
(will go by Graham, love it!)


How freaking cute is he?
9.5 lbs!!!
And she was TINY ... barely looked pregnant! Could not believe he was such a big boy!
 I wish they lived closer, I can't wait to squeeze his cheeks and kiss his face ha!
(even if he is a Tennessee fan hahahaha jk love you all!)

Next on the baby train ... my friend since high school/does my hair/BarreAmped owner teacher, Leigh Ann, had her baby shower this weekend!

First let's talk about how pretty she is ... talk about a glowing pregnant lady ... so pretty!


Pictures were taken by her friend, Abby Custer, who is an amazing photographer in IN ...
"Like" her Fbook Page HERE

I love her pics! They are awesome!

Sew Jwl did it again with her amazing monogram skills haha ;)

How cute are these burp cloths and gowns I got for Savannah ...



Love everything she makes!
If you are local and not using her for your monogram items you are missing out!!
Visit her Facebook Page and "Like" it HERE

I forgot my camera at her shower :(
But did get a couple cute pics of the candy bar...



Loved all the bedazzled candy jars :) lol

It was a great shower, can't wait for baby Savannah to get here! Congrats Leigh Ann! XO

Soooo Saturday night was my 10 Year High School Reunion...
I really didn't feel old prior to this event, and I still sometimes kind of feel like it was just yesterday when I was roaming the halls of PLD trying to figure out how to leave school early ha
But something about the word "reunion" kind of made me feel old all of the sudden lol

I was still really excited to go and see people and mingle :)


And of course I drug Chris along for moral support, like any good boyfriend should do :)


I wore an Alice & Trixie maxi dress... cute and comfy :)


Emily and I


Miss you Casey!! XO


Me, Megan & Leigh Ann <3


Me, Maggie & Caroline :)  

It was a LOT of fun, more fun than I expected that's for sure! I'm so glad I went. It was good catching up with everyone who I don't get to see all the time due to everyone's crazy busy lives!

Lastly,

Do you watch Bill & Giuliana??


I love them. I think they're so funny and down to earth.

Giuliana found out last October she had breast cancer, and had been trying to have a baby for a while so it was sad that after the diagnosis, she found out she couldn't even try to get pregnant for 2 years!

Well this morning on the TODAY show they announced they are having a baby!
You can read about it HERE

Ok, that's all for today!
Hope you have a fabulous Monday :)

Easter Recap

Two catch up posts in one day... very rare :)
Easter is my favorite holiday. Period. I love it, love everything about it.

I love that everyone gets a new Easter outfit to wear to church :) I love coloring and hunting for easter eggs. I love relearning that Jesus rose from the dead for us. I love Easter baskets and goodies. I love those chocolate bunnies in the yellow box with the Peter Rabbit story ha. I love peeps. See? Love everything about it ha.

The kids left the Easter bunny this letter and snack haha I died..


He must have liked it because he left them these... ;)




And don't think he forgot this sweet stud muffin ;)



They each got these cute little shirts to wear for their easter egg hunt ha!


Chris even got a little bucket of his own ;)

I made "Easter Kabobs" ... via Pinterest... They were so cute!


Peeps, Homemade rice krispy treats, and fruit :) super easy!

We went to Chris's sister's house in Louisville for the afternoon after church to eat and hide eggs!
It was so fun!

She has a chalk painted door in her kitchen and I am OBSESSED with it...


How cute is that?? Love it!


Chris and I got zero cute pictures of us the entire day :(
My dress was so cute too ... I can't wait to wear it again... it was Lily P and super colorful ! Wish I would have gotten a better pic :(


The kiddos looked adorable as always :)

Chris's nephews are the cutest... how sweet are these pics?

A Golf Birthday & Papaw

My brother's birthday was over Easter weekend... my papaw and aunt & uncle come up to visit and go to Keeneland every year around his birthday so we can all be together and celebrate :)
My brother is obsessed with golfing. He played golf in school. Loves it.
His girlfriend found these cupcakes on Pinterest and I just thought they were too cute not to share... If you have a golfer in your life... you should try them! They were a hit :)


Is that the cutest thing you've ever seen or what? Love them! My brother was so excited :)
Leslie did an awesome job!
Email me or comment if you want the directions and I'll get them from her!

We went to Bonefish for dinner...


Me, my Papaw and Chris

In case you need a refresher on my 87 year old, amazingly funny Papaw, click HERE hahaha


The girls looked adorable :)


My brother had a great dinner! Then we went to our house for a mini party :)


Leslie (Chris's gf), Chris, his friend Preston, and his gf


Photo Op ... Aunt Cathy, Papaw and my momma :) So cute.


My brother went to blow out his candle, and right before he went to blow it out ... Jake did it for him
hahahaah too funny. Jake is obsessed with my brother, and like wise Chris loves him too, so it was pretty funny.


Little stinker! ha.  
So glad Chris had a great birthday!
Love you brother!  <3

Well hello there :)

Long time no read/talk/catch up! :( Things have been a little crazy in my world and I miss catching up with everyone's blogs!! I have taken a little break due to working 60 hour weeks, going to NYC for a week, Easter holiday etc etc... but boy do I have LOTS to share!
 
I don't even know where to start ... maybe I should have put this is outline form lol.
First and most important ... my KY Wildcats are the National Champions in case you've been under a rock for the last couple of weeks ha! Couldn't be happier!!! I knew we would have a great year :) And even more exciting, is that my bracket ended up being amazing... I don't know anyone who had more wins than me :) Just sayin' ha.
Here are some of my favorite pics from the CATS craziness...


My favorite CATS day shirt! How cute are those? Of course I got a white one too... no brainer!


LOL that's just plain funny.


I got Ella & Ava a KC&Go Cats shirt too ;)  We wore them in NYC on the National Championship Game Day!


So cute!!!


We've discussed before how my assistant Emily is ALWAYS around famous people haha so it should come as no surprise that the night the guys got home, she was of course at the same bar they were :)
So jelly of her!
 
Ok now for the NYC trip down low..
We had SUCH a good time! It went by so quickly ... but it was everything I expected and more!
LOVEDDDD it there!!!!
 
I took a million pictures of course ;) But here are just a few of them to suffice for now ha.
 
Our hotel was AMAZING
 
Hotel Gansevoort on Park Ave.
I would HIGHLY recommend it anyone planning on going to NYC. It was a great location and just so so nice! Well worth it!
1. The rooms were a nice size for NYC hotels... very clean, and they change your bedding and clean your room every day while you're gone :)
2. There were massive purple chandeliers in the lobby ha loved them
3. They had HUGE Houndstooth chairs in the lobby that matched my bedroom window treatments lol
4. There was a Lacoste in our hotel lobby... I'll say no more ha.

 1. We rode the Farris wheel in the Toys R Us in Timesquare :)
2. Times Square was CRAZZZZY ... I can't even explain. But awesome.
3. We went to the ginormous M&M store ... it was really cute.
4. We got our picture taken with Spiderman and Ironman ... Jake has never been more excited in his life ha.

We of course had to go to The American Girl Doll store... it was really cute.. and huge! The girls got "Look Alike" dolls with matching pajamas, etc Too cute.

1. We went to the underground Apple store... it was so cool! And packed like you have never seen anything packed before in your life. Literally you couldn't move.
2. We passed Trump Tower, where I really wanted to go in and ask for Donald and apply for The Apprentice lol ... not a joke.
3. We were SO excited to go to Dylan's Candy Bar ... it was fabulous!
4. Can't you tell by the kids faces how excited they were to be in the largest candy store in the country hahahahaha


The floors were literally glass over top of candy ha


It was 3 levels of nothing but every kind of candy in the entire world!


So fun! :)

We went to the American Natural History Museum ... I wasn't super excited about this beforehand but it was literally the neatest place ever... so huge... we were there half a day and didn't see everything. It was really cool ...







We had more crazy pictures taken than you can imagine ha and let me tell you what, they rip you a new one with those suckers ha... $20 each!! Ridic!
We visited FAO Scharwz and played on the big piano :)

 We also went to the Muppet Maker Workshop inside FAO Scharwz and I think that was the kids favorite part of the entire trip... you design your own muppet on charts and then come back in an hour and they make the puppet exactly how you wanted it. It was pretty cool... they turned out so cute! :)

 The Statue of Liberty was sooo nice!
We had a blast...

We took the ferry across over to see the Statue of Liberty and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day either! It was so nice!



Next we went to the 911 Memorial at Ground Zero in Battery Park ... this was my favorite part of the entire trip I think ...
1. In the preview site and gift shop they had all sorts of memorabilia from 9-11 and it was so surreal. They have a Statue of Liberty that is clothed in pictures and items of people who died on 911 and items that were either found or donated to the memorial. It was awesome.
2. They are rebuilding the twin towers... almost finished... pretty neat.
3. They had one tree that was left standing after 911 on ground zero ... everything else was literally demolished but this one little tree was still there... they have chained down now. But it was neat.
4. Almost everything down there is rebuilt and really nice now! I was really surprised!
 







 
We had such a blast!
Can't wait to go back again!
 
Sorry for the picture overload.. that is about 1/10 of the ones I took ;)
 
More posts to come this week about Easter etc!
XO,
