Lots of work but some fun

I started my new job, well hospital orientation. Even though it's not physically demanding, hospital orientation is such a yawner that it wears you out mentally. Bright side: I get paid:)

In between orientation and my full time job, I've managed to have some fun.
Babygirl2 turned 22 on July 1. Since babygirl1 was coming to visit in a few short days, we decided to celebrate on July 3rd.

We had an awesome dinner at P.F Changs, a chain Chinese bistro. it's Americanized Chinese but tasty all the same. Even more interesting is that my ex husband and his girlfriend were there along with my mister. We have certainly come a long way!

Buddy and me! My baby boy is ginormous at 6'1". Yikes!!

Babygirl1 and hubby

Babygirl2, BBoy and son (I need a nickname for my new grandson!).

Me and my Mister;)

After a good, filling dinner it was time to sing happy birthday to my pretty girl!

My girl Loathes the singing part but didn't mind dessert:)

We really had a good time. In 2 short months, babygirl2 will be married and will be Bboy's wife. It's so hard to believe that my feisty, gutsy, beautiful, intelligent baby is old enough to be a wife. Where did the time go?? I feel good that I can look back and not wish I had more time when she was young. I enjoy my babygirls and my buddy in their youngness.

The family and my kids' Dad. Look how buddy towers over his Dad!!

The kids and me!

I am grateful for my fabulous kids! It wasn't always easy or fun but, so very worth it!!

I'm a redhead!

I so needed a change in my life. Feeling overwhelmed, and a little restless I decided to do this:

I LOVE it. Just what I needed to get through these next 2 months.
Oh, and this is what happen when my Mister saw me...

Oh Yea;)

Yesterday, Babygirl2 turned 22!! I will write a post on that later.

Scholarship for Babygirl2 and a mini Family reunion

Babygirl2 was awarded The Sean Brunske Economics Scholarship and she was invited to attend a reception in honor of this scholarship. Three other students received this same scholarship.

I am so proud of Babygirl2. It's not been an easy road for her and this honor, her achievement is so awesome. Of all my kids, she has the biggest brains. She also is witty, funny and gorgeous.

Babygirl2 use to tell me that I was too hard on her and that I thought she was much smarter than she really is. Remember when your Mom said stuff to you and you thought she was crazy only to realize later in life that she was right?

I think Babygirl2 realizes I was right:)

Saturday June 13

My Bigbro M and family flew in from Minnesota on Thursday for 4 short days. He has a new GREAT grand baby! He is the oldest and there are 7 of us in total (I'm the baby and yes I probably do still act like the baby!)but still! How we get this old?!?

I manage to get 5 out of 7 of us together. Two brothers couldn't make it.
We met at LaBella pizza for some catching up and some awesome pizza!

This place has been here for 54 years. I use to come here after football games and whenever I wanted great pizza.

Our guest of honor

Pictures before gluttony:

My awesome Kids! Look how ginormous buddy is next to his sisters!

What an awesome day!

Engagement Pictures

No, I am not engaged but babygirl2 is and we got her engagement pictures back just the other day. Unfortunately, the photographers' site does not allow me to download the pictures to my computer. But, being the smart woman that I am, I took a photo of the photo. Pretty cleaver huh?!

Overall, I was not that impressed with the pictures but enough are good that it works out okay. The wedding is coming faster then I can make money! EEK!!!!!!!!

Babygirl2 was awarded a scholarship from the Economics department and they are having a reception today to present it to her. I'm so proud of my babygirl! Pictures will certainly follow!
