my birthday, a new year and such

Happy New Year!!!!  2012....I am counting on you.  Please be good to me. 


So, yeah!  I had a birthday on the 28th.  Last month.  Last year!  Age to be kept to me.  ha!  I guess that's how you know when you are getting "old."  Age is relative.  That's my story and I am sticking to it!

I enjoyed my favorite....

Margaritas!  Good food.  And good company!  Gotta love the queso on her lip.  Dats ma gurl!

We started at Chacho's for a yummy margarita....then we headed down the street to Pappadeaux!  Yummy x two.  I had some pretty good crab cakes, although I have had better.  That is not a complaint....just an observation. 

I also observed a Swampthing!!!!

Layla got to put her photog skills to use....

I say pretty glass of water....and bread crumbs, eh?!  Ha!  I just adore this....yes!  Because Layla snapped it.  Next up....working on focus....hehehehehe.

{She was proud...that's all love right there!  Pounding her heart to prove it!}
All in all....I really wouldn't have asked for anything more.

New Year's Eve was low key....as it has been for quite some time now.  But - good!  And - safe! 

And then came 2012.  And my idea that I could do our annual mommy and me photo shoot with me, myself and I.  What a joke!!!???!!!

Mommy + Layla + tripod + timer =
mommy and me photo shoot FAIL! 

And just for practical purposes....the sake of my dignity....the wind did not help the situation!

But, CHEERS to trying! 

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

I know where Layla gets her sass! You two have the same sassy pose thing going on. Glad you had a good New Years, I hope 2012 is good to you too.

I sent you an ecard on your bday, but my emails telling me it may not have delivered correctly....sorry my friend, I hope it was fabulous and by the looks of the pics it was.
