A Year Ago Today

A year ago today, Matt and I were married.

A year ago today, I officially became a step-mom.

A year ago today, I got ready for my wedding day with these lovely ladies. 

A year ago today, I remember being excited and anxious to see Matt.

A year ago today, I remembered it rained on our wedding day and I could have cared less.

A year ago today, I remember thinking "a girl could get used to this".

A year ago today my parents threw Matt and I a fun and wonderful wedding.  My mom is smiling because the wedding day was beautiful and all of her hard work paid off.  My dad is smiling because he doesn't have to write anymore checks.

A year ago today, everyone at our reception was on the dance floor for the YMCA.

A year ago today, there was some serious booty shaking going on.

A year ago today, we were surrounded by our family and friends as Matt and I got married.  It was a wonderful day and the perfect way to start off our marriage.

A Weekend in Lexington

I spent this past weekend in Lexington, KY visiting my sister and her husband with my mom and family friend Beth.  We arrived on Friday night and had dinner at Onizum's and it was delicious.  Bottles of wine were half priced which of course sealed the deal for me.  The food and company were great and it was nice enough we could sit outside.

Saturday morning we went to the farmer's market.  My mom and Beth work in food service and if they aren't working with food, they are talking about food.  They stopped at every booth and bought some spinach and onions.  After the farmer's market, we took a trip out to Irish Acres to check out the antiques and have lunch at The Glitz.

The Glitz is the restaurant in the basement of the school house turned into an antique store.  Its a perfect place for ladies who lunch and the food is great.  There is only one problem, it looks like it was decorated by demented fairies.

The picture on the left does little justice to the decor but you get the hint.

My favorite part of the decor is this fantastic 80's lady riding a horse.  The best part of this painting was the lady in the lower right corner has a strong resemblance to the lady in the painting.

Demented fairies are at work here.

After lunch, we walked around Irish Acres and checked out the antiques.

I feel like someone is watching me.  The dolls were everywhere.

This bedroom suite could be yours for $48,500.  And yes, the comma is in the right
place and that is the correct amount of zeros.

There is my sister Laura showing off one of the antiques.

Why is the dog/horse/whatever so small in the corner of this picture?

After Irish Acres, The Glitz and a quick trip to the garden and home show we went to the Lexington Cemetery.  I know, a trip to the cemetery sounded creepy to me too but the tulips we saw were worth it.  If we would have visited a week later, we would have missed the opportunity to see the tulips in full bloom.

My sister, me and my mom

It was a good weekend and the weather was beautiful.  It was also great to see my sister and to catch up.  It always amazes me how different Lexington feels compared to Indianapolis.  It has a southern charm to it and things are a bit slower (or at least they feel that way to me).  Its not good or bad, just different and sometimes different is nice.

Now Things Are Really Looking Different

Daulton lost another tooth last night.  Just like the last one, it had been loose for a while and last night he was finally able to pull it out.  I think the corn on the cob we had for dinner also helped to loosen it up.  He is now missing one front top tooth and two lower front teeth.

I don't know how he is going to eat corn on the cob now.  My guess is he will figure out how to make it work.  The boy loves corn on the cob.

Daulton also turned 7 at the end of March.  I cannot believe this kid is 7 years old.  When I met Matt, Daulton was only 3 years old and he was this short, chunky, adorable little boy.  When you looked at him, you wanted to pinch his cheeks and snuggle him all at the same time. 

And now he is a tall, lean, smart and still adorable little man.   He tackled me the other day and I would have fallen over had the couch not been there to hold me up.  He is reading chapter books and no longer wants to hold my hand in public (this one breaks my heart).  I still pinch and kiss his cheeks and try to snuggle him, but he is a little bit more resistant to that now.  He has homework and tests and responsibilities like feeding the dog and returning library books on time.

Its hard to admit he is growing up.
