Mom's 60th Birthday

So I guess I'm just going to have to work one blog at a time to catch me all up! There is soo much to catch up on I don't know if I can do it all.
We'll start with the most fun though :)

A couple weekends ago we made a trip to Las Vegas to surprise my Mom with a birthday party for her 60th Birthday!! My sister, Sara, lives in town and was able to contact everyone to come and make it a great turnout! After much planning and searching for the perfect decor, style, cake, food, etc etc etc, it all came down to that day! We decided that I would be the one to get her out of the house for a few hours so they could come set up and get everyone there and everything all set up (since the party was being held at HER house lol).
After a few hours of shopping, manicures and pedicures, we were ready to head home. Long story short, she walked in and was SHOCKED!! There were so many people who came to celebrate and surprise her. It was an amazing time and I'm so glad she enjoyed herself.

She is by far the best Mom on the face of the earth and deserves nothing but the best. I am so thankful that God blessed me with her as a Mother, and if I grow to be half the mother she is, I'll die happy.

Love you Momma!

Here are some picture from her party :)

Worst blogger EVER!!

Oh my gosh! I'm like the worst blogger on the face of the earth!
I promise I'll get back into this...
There has been so much going on. We've been insane busy. My health has been top priority and hopefully once that all blows over, I'll be back in my routine.
I am getting surgery this Friday for my gallbladder, to have it removed. I'm completely terrified (to say the least). I've NEVER had surgery of any type, ever! So the thought of going under and not waking up has been top in my head. It's awful and I know I shouldn't think like that, but I can't help it. It's a huge fear of mine.
I also will be traveling to Vegas at the end of April/early May to have spine surgery on my neck.
I am excited to have all of this behind me and move on with my life with hopefully less pain. I am hopeful that these two things will just make a huge difference in how I feel day to day. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers that I will make it through surgery this Friday (and in May) with flying colors and for peace in my own head about it.

Hope you all are having a great 2011 so far!!!
