March is always one of my busiest months for birthdays in my family, February falling a close second. Beginning on the 11th I have Tavis, 12th my mom, 13th my sister in law Tiffany, 15th my older sister Jenn, 23rd my niece Kaitlyn, 27th my niece Destiny, and finally on the 29th my little sister Courtney.
Every year I try to hold a huge birthday get together for my family in March to celebrate all the birthdays. Especially my mom.

So on the 11th Tavis, Peyton and I went to dinner with Tavis' mom. It was our first real outing with Peyton and she was a champ. Just very content the whole time we were out. I felt bad that we couldn't really do much for his birthday but he had work all day so that was a real downer. (Tavis when he was a baby:))

On the 12th I had planned to have the whole family over for Dinner for the birthdays, But before dinner I went with my older sister Jenn to get her birthday present. Her first Tattoo. When we were younger we always figured Jenn would be the first of us to get a tattoo. She was the bad girl in the family so we we were all a little surprised when I got mine first. But it was nice to live vicariously through her and i can't wait to get my next one. I love her tattoo and she was such a champ getting it didn't even flinch or shed a tear. :) She got it between her shoulder blades.

Once we were done with that we went back to my place and got ready. We made Taco soup, and Funfetti cake. Everyone but my brother and his girls came, but i was so happy for the turn out we did have. It was a lot of fun and My nephews got to know their uncle Tavis just a little more while he babysat them while we were out. (my mom and dad)

On sunday Tavis' Dad and his Fiance' came over to hang out with Tavis and Peyton for his birthday it was nice for Peyton to see her Grandpa Albertson a little more since we are rarely able to get over there to see him. Although she was a little fussy turns out she caught a cold from the day before, poor girl.

Anyway yeah that would be the birthday weekend.

Today I had my first Dentist appointment in 6 years. Come to find out I need major oral surgery. Something i'm not excited about. I'm going to need 6 possibly 8 teeth removed. Unfortunately I'm not insured anymore and this is something that just can't wait. So finding a way to pay for it sucks even more. I have barely been able to eat anything since Friday night. Blah.... Is all I have to say about that. :(

On a happier note, Tomorrow St. Patrick's Day marks 3 years that Tavis and I have been together.
Three years ago at around 2 in the morning, Tavis and I had just gotten back from GCLI in Colorado a few hours before and were passed out at my house. We had woken up and oddly continued our game of what was 20 questions that begin 12 hours before when leaving Colorado, but was like infinity questions... Anyway Tavis turns to me and says, "Ok i have a good question. Will you be my GF Homeslice?" I'm looking at him like, did you really ask that and reply, "be your what?" "My girlfriend."
And that is how we began. It blows my mind that that was really 3 years ago and so much has happened since then. I love you Tavis so so so much and love that I get to call you Husband. I love what a great dad you are to our little girl too. :) Thank you for so many great memories. (This is us in Colorado just before we started dating)


  1. awww i can't get over how precious your little girl is :) and the part about your teeth made me feel so bad! i haven't been to the dentist in a little over a decade due to insurance poo that stuff sucks... :( but things always fall together in the end it will be okay :)

  2. Thank you Paige! we need to have a play date. I miss you and River. Yeah it totally sucks not having insurance. thanks for the encouragment.
