The weather is warming up here in AZ and Sofia and I have already headed to the Y a few times to enjoy the wonderful pool!

This past week the company that I work for held it’s annual awards banquet. I was lucky enough to find a babysitter so I was able to attend. Now understand, this event ends each year with a party – that is “what happens at spring training, stays at spring training” style! I mean some of the stuff you see makes it a little difficult to look across the meeting room at some of your coworkers! Anyway, just a pic of my and two of my BWFs (best work friends)!
Me, Steph and Jacque
What makes me happiest about this picture (other than being with these lovely ladies) – the dress is a 10 and yes that makes me VERY happy – side zip with no holding anything in makes for a happy girl!
Anna, Jen, Michelle (she just had a baby at 25 weeks and he is coming home soon) and me
Michael, Glenda, Me, Steph and Jacque
Glenda, Me and Jacque
Awww, Me and Jacque – she was my “date” for the evening because her (well technically her daddy’s credit card) bought our drinks!
It is very rare that I go out and I must say it was a really fun night! Me 2 drinks and 1/2 glass of wine and home by 11 (to kill a scorpion on the outside wall of my house) – all in all, a great night!
What a wonderful Easter we had! We went to an amazing Passion Play at our Church on Good Friday – it was awesome! Earlier that day, Sofia had also been invited to a wonderful Easter pool party! She decorated eggs, cookies, had an egg hunt (her prize was her very own Bible) and swam. Oh and of course the bounce house and cake! It really was a great time!
On Saturday, we went and watched the local Easter parade – very small town feel in a big ole town! Pretty good but maybe not something we need to go to again. We decorated eggs that afternoon at home.
Sunday morning the Easter bunny had left Sofia some lovely treats and then she hunted eggs. Not the same hiding the eggs in rocks and along the sidewalk! But since Sofia woke me up at 6am ready to hunt eggs, it was the best I could do.
After the egg hunt, we headed to church and then took a few outdoor pics of us. That afternoon we had a yummy lunch of ham, asparagus and carrots. Then (just when we thought we had had enough Easter fun) we went over to a friend’s house for more food, egg decorating and hunting! WOW, we really maxed out this Easter!
Check out the “Jazzy Poms” – out favorite part of the parade!
So the Easter bunny left the chocolate bunny in the car a little toooooo long and his face got a little smushy!
Well, it’s not really a “do”. Anyone that knows me knows that I am very LOW maintenance. I don’t get my nails done, I don’t wear tons of make-up (but can’t live without my bare minerals) and I don’t really do much to my hair. Well, since I have lost 30 pounds I decided I needed to spruce it up a bit for Spring and Summer. Confession – I had not had my hair cut since October….2008! Yes, disgusting I know but my hair grows very slow. I also had not had color on it for 3 years or so. Anyway, got it done about a week ago and Sofia snapped some pics of me after church one day.
PS –I have a really big nose, don’t I? I mean I know I am judgmental about my pics, but isn’t my nose big? Be honest – I can take it!
