Hello Birthday!

I had a wonderful birthday on Thursday. Elaine made a really yummy dinner and then this yummy cake.






My sweet husband sent me these...





And my mom bought me this book and cute apron.





This book has totally inspired me. I plan on creating every cupcake in it. So for my birthday I picked out one and my mom, Courtney, McKenzie and I got to work.








In the end, this is what we got.









I am in love! If anyone is looking for me over the next few weeks I will be in my kitchen baking up a storm!

Reagan


I forgot to post about our fun weekend with my family. Justin and Lyra are in town for the week, which means Reagan is here!! It is amazing how much she has grown since December. She is now 13 months old and cute as can be. She is her father's daughter for sure. What a determined little thing. Did I mention she knows sign language?? I guess she is just brilliant! She gets that from both her parents. I simply adore her and can't wait to go back on Friday to get my fill.

Twix

I has been a really long time since I have had one of these...






Gosh what was I thinking! They are amazing.

What's your favorite candy bar?

The why

Well there is a reason we decided to go private. We had a threat against our lives last week. I know, it sounds dramatic and unrealistic, but it is true. Since the person knows about our blog and has visited it we both thought it would be best to make it private for the time being. It wont last forever and in a few months when the dust has settled we will open this blog again to the masses. I am not a fan of private blogs, sorry to those of you that have them. I just feel like it is a lot easier to keep up with blogs when they are public. Oh well. Such is life. The good news is, now that we are private we can be more open about things because only select people are able to read our blog. I still hope to update at least 1-2 times a week. So please check back often.

A little update on how we are doing:

My birthday is next week on the 27th. Can't believe I will be 27! Robert is loving his new job. He actually looks forward to Mondays. I still like mine as well, but can't wait to start our family and be a stay at home mom. (By the way, on that note we are hoping to start IVF in the next 5-7 months. Since I know some of you have asked when we would start pursuing treatment.) Life is really good. We love our home and are slowly putting things away. I will have to post some new pictures soon.

Thank you for keeping up with us.

Buyer Beware...

Robert has been eyeing a mini PC for a few months. After a lot of searching he found one he really liked a Best Buy. So as part of our date-night on Friday we went to Best Buy to pick-up the one he wanted. We asked lots of questions to be sure it was the right fit. We took it home and after lots of searching he realized it didn't have the Internet security and blockers we needed. So we took it back on Saturday morning after owning it for 16 hrs. Boy were we surprised when the sales guy told us we would have to pay $45 to return our $300 computer! What! Come again! Yes, a restocking fee of 15% of the purchase price would be applied. After explaining that we were not told by the salesman the night before about the charge and that we did not agree with their policy he begrudgingly told us, "Well, I can make an exception this one time. But next time I wont be able to do this for you. It is on the back of our receipt and we can't tell every customer about our return policies. That just isn't possible. But I can make just this one exception, but next time it wont happen."

WOW! What a saint! I think he needs an award... right. So needless to say we will no longer be shopping at Best Buy. Which is a bummer because we have some tech buys we will be making in the not so distant future and they are usually the place we head to. Well they have lost our business for good. Beware before you buy at Best Buy.
