Birthday Pics!

I had a wonderful birthday! I loved that I got to spend it with my closest family & friends. After my hair appt. we realized that we weren't going to have time to go to the places that I wanted to go, but we did go to this store that was in the mall where I got my hair cut at, and I bought a cute top and some dressy pants for work. Then we rushed back to my moms house, Matt went in his car to buy sodas and a few other things, and me and my sis went to costco for this chocolate cake that is to die for! It's sooo chocolatey, all you need is one bite for a complete chocolate fix for a week. We got back to my mom's just in time to help fix the table and we were ready to get our grub ON! My 3 sisters came with their hubbys and kids, and 3 of my best friends came with their hubby's and kids.
me all cheesey!

Mish, rach, Christina, and me . We were sooo full, all we wanted to do was sit there til tomrrow.

My 2 nieces.

The lovebirds.

My lil nephew getting his grub on.

1, 2, 3, make a wish!

After cake and ice cream, we hung out in the living room. Good times.

and I opened my gifts.....

Me and my nephew! Luv him!!

I got super blessed!

On Sunday Matt closed the weekend off by taking me to a play at the local college to watch:
I aint gonna lie, I have never read the book nor did I know what the play was about, we got there about 10 minutes late, and I could not for the life of me catch on to what the play was about, and I could hardly understand what they were saying because of their accents. It was actually kinda funny that I was sitting there the whole time trying to figure everything out, and by that time it was over, and everybody was standing up and applauding.

After THAT, we went back to my moms because she had a whole tray of food leftover from the night before. My niece also had a baseball game in the area, so my sis and her fam showed up at my moms after her game. My niece is an excellent baseball player, she hit 3 home runs on Saturday!! and one on Sunday. And she plays on a team with 14 and 15 yr olds and she's TWELVE. Ya that's my girl!!

It's My Birthday!

Have I mentioned that I loooove my birthday, I think it should be a national holiday or something. =P just kiddin'. But I do love getting spoiled by my hubby and fam bam. Here's the plans for the day: 11am - i have a much needed haircut/color appt.. I am so excited for this, my hair is nasty right now. After that Matt's gonna take me shopping either to Victoria Gardens or Old town Pasadena, both have thee bomb stores for shopping. Then around 6ish, my mom's cooking me dinner = my fave = green chili chicken enchiladas. My sisters & hubbys & all my nieces and nephews will be there, and a few of my close friends. Yay!

Gotta go get ready now! Here's a pic from last night as we were getting ready for our Safe Zone event we have at our church on Halloween. The guys went out and bought pizza for us, and they bought me a guy version "cake"! =) (the candle is a straw. lol)

Another decision

So before I applied for this job I applied for a job with a nearby's a part time administrative asst. position. When I applied I really really wanted it! So anyways, I dropped off my application but I knew I would have to wait awhile because the closing date for apps. was Oct. 9th. So then I got this job that I have now. Well on Friday I got a letter in the mail from the City saying I got accepted for the 2nd part of the interview, which is the "written" part. Oy! I really want to go but the thing is, it's Oct. 31st and we have a company mtg. (which i'm supposed to coordinate) the exact same time as the "interview"! I'm going to pray about it, and if God makes a way for me, and gives me the boldness to ask for half a day off, then i'm going to go for it. I just can't turn down an interview for a city, especially because it's part time, and the pay is 2 more dollars than what I get paid now!

Pray for me for wisdom!


My hot diggity man

he's such a multi-tasker...he kills me every time he wears those headphones. =P

Job Update

So it's been a full week working at my new job. I seriously didn't think I was going to make it this far. The night before my first day, I felt sooo sick, I was such a nervous wreck! I felt like i had to puke, I was actually crying because I didn't want to go afterall. Matt encouraged me to go, "it's not like you're married to this job" he told me, just try it out and see how it goes. So I put on my big girl panties and went. And now I love it!! Funny huh?? I can't believe how nervous I was! The owners of the company are SO great! It's a women that's 40, she's the president and a women that's 27, shes the vice president. Then there's about another 15 other employees. I'm the administrative asst. to both the pres. & vice pres.. They are sooo nice and make me feel so comfortable. And best of all it's right across the street from the mall!! I'm just waiting for my first paycheck and it's on! =)
