Birthdays!

So today is Jason's birthday and it is also my dad's birthday! Yes, they have to share their birthdays now, but it is kinda crazy that they actually have the same birthday! I won't reveal my dad's age...but Jason is celebrating his last year in his 20s...yes, he's 29! I know this may come as a surprise to many of you, speaking of, the other day the pizza delivery guy asked if he was the owner of the house because he looked so young:) I guess that is a compliment, right? So this might just be the last birthday Jason wants to celebrate:) We'll see! So I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the 2 men in my life!

New Camera!

So Jason brought home a nice new bright shiney Nikon D80 camera yesterday! I was very excited! I've been wanting this camera for months now. I've been playing with the camera ALOT and becoming familiar with all of its features. I still don't understand most of it, but boy does it take amazing pictures! So I set up a flickr account so I could share the photos without having to do a blog post each time I want to share a picture. You will find the link to the right-->
Hope you enjoy them....oh and I am still an amateur, so don't judge too harshly:)

Galveston

We took a quick spontaneous trip to Galveston and Moody Gardens yesterday. We took Ashlyn to the Moody Gardens' beach last year, but she had never actually been to the real ocean before. The weather was beautiful and we got to see some pretty cool things at the Moody Gardens Aquarium Pyramid. As Ashlyn says it was "the best beach day ever"!

Things you might not know about me:)

I got tagged by my mommy friend Karen! So I guess I will dive deep into who Sarah really is and things that might be a little interesting about her. Ok....I'll stop talking in the 3rd person now:) Here goes...

Here are the tagging rules:
Post the rules on your blog
Write 6 random things about yourself
Tag 6 people at the end of your post
If you're tagged, DO IT and pass on the tag


1. I am an avid reality show/competition watcher! I can't help it...I just have to know what happens next. Even if the show is very shallow and absolutely ridiculous. Big Brother, The Mole, The Hills, America's Next Top Model, Beauty and the Geek, Project Runway, American Idol, Bachelor/Bachelorette, and the list goes on. Some of the shows I think are worth watching, but come on...Beauty and the Geek...what is wrong with me! I am making an effort to cut back this year!

2. Most of you know that I am a twin, but did you know that my twin sister and I really did not like each other growing up. I know...most twins are like best friends, but we were far from that! I don't know what caused us to be like that...except for the fact that we were totally different and looked nothing alike and were still called "the twins" and people got us mixed up all the time. But now we are the best of friends!

3. Yes, I played volleyball in college, most of you know that. But, when I was a junior in high school, my friend and I entered a sand volleyball competition for fun in Houston. We ended up winning that, went to Corpus Christi and won that tournament, and won a free trip to California to play in the Junior National Sand Volleyball Tournament. It was an amazing trip and we ended up placing 3rd in the Nation, losing to 2 California teams. It was a crazy experience!

4. When I was in elementary school I did gymnastics. I actually did competitions and stuff where I won medals! Now I was definitely no Nastia Lukin or Shawn Johnson! But I could do a cartwheel on the balance beam! And I did not quit gymnastics because I moved on to bigger and better things, I quit because I was doing a back handspring and landed on my head...ouch! I was too chicken to do many things after that, so I knew my gymnastics career was over:(

hmmm...I'm running out of interesting things...

5. I really do not like reading books. When someone recommends a book to me, I just wonder if it is a movie yet. I really have never liked to read...even growing up. I only read just what I had to get by in school. I do on the other hand, read for information, like when I was pregnant, I read a few books on pregnancy. The other things I like to read are emails, blogs, pottery barn catalogs, and the newspaper:)

6. I am somewhat of a germ-a-phob! Ever since I had Ashlyn I am just paranoid about germs! I use hand sanitizer all the time and use clorox wipes to clean everything! After getting a stomach virus from eating raw brownie mix and getting strep throat from walking around Walmart, I can't help but be anti germ lady. And don't worry, I don't go overboard and not shake other peoples hands and stuff like that...I try to control myself a little, but don't think I don't notice when you sneeze or cough on your hand and then open a door or touch something I'm about to touch. I just get my trusty hand sanitizer out after you're gone:) I know I'm too paranoid!

Well, that's enough info about me...I probably shared too much!

So now I tag:

1. Casey
2. Monique
3. Kasey
4. Catherine
5. Rebecca D
6. Sarah C.

Polka Dot Shower

We had a baby shower for my good friend, Morgan, at my house last weekend. We did a polka dot theme that matched the decor of baby bobby's room. I think it turned out great! We had polka dot food (fruit kabobs) and a yummy polka dot cake that Karen made. We also had lots of balloons, two polka dot mobiles that Erin made, and a yummy candy bar so the guest could take some yummy treats home with them. We all had a great time and Morgan got some great gifts!

Yummy polka dot cake!

Candy bar and bags

Another Wedding Weekend!


Congratulations Liz and Chris!

This past weekend, my good friend Liz married the love of her life, Chris Dammel. I got to be a part of their big day. My sister Rachel and my other good friend, Casey, were bridesmaids in the wedding and I got to be the wedding videographer. It was so fun to be a part of their big day! The wedding was at Ashelynn Manor in Magnolia, TX. It was so beautiful and everything went smoothly. Here are a few pics from the wedding:
