First, you must know it's my birthday tomorrow. And last night, Corey and I were sitting on the couch and he got this serious look on his face.

"I need to tell you something about your birthday plans."

"Okay... What's up?"

"You won't be going in to work on Friday. And you need to pack a bag tomorrow for two nights." 

I don't know much else other than I need to bring a nice dress and we are driving there. Needless to say, I am super excited to find out where my husband is whisking me away to. I thought this year was going to be a more low-key birthday, but I guess I was wrong! I'm turning the big 2-5, and husband wants to celebrate! I can't wait to tell you all about it Monday. But for now, I must bid you farewell for the weekend! Hope you have a good one, and look out for a Formspring Friday post tomorrow!

{Easter Weekend Snaps}

This weekend was spent entirely with family, and it was so amazing. Friday night Corey and I took Henry on a long walk and picked up dinner and ate it in the park. The weather was so beautiful, everyone was out enjoying it. When the sun shines in Portland your heart feels extra full and it's hard to wipe the smile off your face.

Saturday the sun was actually producing warmth - like 70+ degrees warm! My in-laws had a little BBQ shindig so family and friends could come by and meet baby Emma. There are few things I love more than a sunny day spent with family (including cute babies) and delicious food. It was truly blissful!

This weekend, we finally got to meet our adorable two-month old niece, Emma. And let me tell you, she is even more beautiful in person than she was in all the pictures and videos I saw of her! I spent the weekend taking mass amounts of photos of this little angel, and I just had to give you a little taste of how freakin' precious she is. Yes, that's right, these 11 photos are just a tiny preview. Because I have so many more to show you from this weekend. So stay tuned. For now, meet Emma. The cutest baby in all the world.

Around the Apartment

We had friends over for shrimp tacos and margaritas last night. I set the table and then decided it would be as good a time as any to snap a couple photos of our little 'ol apartment. Just a couple quick pictures to wet your appetite as I've had quite a few requests lately. I'll show you details and such some other day... Hope you had a great Thursday! I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for the weekend!!

Corey and I have been busy chasing a BIG dream recently... I really hope it comes true so I can tell you all about it! Cross your fingers for us!

Tulip Fest!

This weekend, my Mom, Corey, Henry and I met up with my coworker and her adorable son at the Tulip Fest. It's about 45 minutes outside of Portland, and you just go and enjoy these expansive tulip fields, cute little miniature windmills and wooden clogs. It was truly beautiful. The big bummer of the day was I got to the Tulip Fest only to realize I had left my camera battery in the charger back at home. I was so bummed. But I still went wild with my iPhone! Here are a few snaps from the day. If you're ever in the area I highly recommend you go!
