Today is my good friend, Audrey's 27th Birthday!! (Youngin! Haha) Over the past 3 years or so Audrey and I have become very close and I feel that she is truly one of my great friends I will have forever! We talk almost daily online, and try getting together at least a few times per year. (We live about 3 hours away from each other) Her husband, Zach & Eric are good friends as well, and when the 4 of us get together it's nothing but laughs all day! Audrey is such a sweetheart and I wish her the best birthday yet!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUDREY!
On a side note, my sister and her friends are flying in from Cancun today. I hate that she had to come home early from her vacation, but it will be good to know she is home, safe, and healthy. She is going to see the doctor tomorrow to double check she did not catch the swine flu before Austyn gets home. Better to be safe than sorry. So thank you for your prayers, they definitely helped!
Last side note for today: Stellan is going home today!! That is such great news! God definitely listened to the thousands of prayers daily for that little baby boy!
This weekend was fun and yet still trying to get healthy again. Friday night I met friends at Mesa Rosa for a drink after Bella went to bed. It was nice to catch up with them and relax a bit.
Saturday we ran errands with Bella all day and got to play in the driveway with her new sidewalk chalk. She loved it! The weather was yucky all weekend, so we mainly stayed indoors. Saturday night we went to Carlos N Charlie's with Sandra & Mark and ended up at Third Base playing darts with some of their friends. It was a lot of fun and great to get out for a bit. I was coughing the whole time but managed to still have fun and have a beer as well! Ofcourse I was DD since heavy drinking was out of the question!
Sunday we cleaned and grocery shopped, and relaxed the whole day.
I am still fighting whatever it is I have, and hoping it gets better asap. I hate coughing and feeling crappy all the time! Today I woke up and my left eye is bright red and yucky. It's not pink eye, because I've had that before and it's painful. This doesn't really hurt, just hard to see. The coughing has since stopped, which is a plus. Just wanting to feel totally better already!

Today I am feeling better, still have no voice, and coughing ever so often, but feeling better. Let's hope this weekend I'll be fine!! Happy TGIF!!

Today is Eric's friend, Travis's birthday. Happy Birthday Travis! We are going to the Salt Lick in Driftwood tonight to celebrate. Incase your asking what the Salt Lick is, it's a world famous BBQ joint, that's located about 15 minutes south of dowtown Austin, (aka about an hour south of our cozy house nestled in North Austin!!) They really do have great bbq, so it should be lots of fun!
Lastly, Happy Earth Day! Although I am not big on recycling at home, I do recycle all paper, plastic, and aluminum at work, plus we're really big about bringing our Eva Longoria HEB bags when we go grocery shopping to help out as well. Just our little part in helping this world. So Happy Earth Day, give Mother Nature a boost today and recycle!

Update: Nothing on Bella as I am still at work, but please help me in praying for Baby Stellan as he underwent surgery in Boston this morning. We are all keeping him and his family in our prayers! I think of how much I worry when Bella coughs, I could not imagine watching my little baby going through a heart surgery! Lord please be with them today and everyday.

This weekend was such a blast. On Friday night we headed home to GP. My Dad & Mary were waiting for us when we got there, and Bella was so excited! She stayed up until 11 p.m. which is way past her bed time, but since she doesn't get to spend much time with them, we let her stay up.
Saturday we went to see Carol & Jack, and mainly Jack's Dad who was not doing too well. He will be missed, and it's good to know he is with God, his family, and friends in Heaven now.
Afterwards, we took Tanya to Cuba Libre for lunch. They have the best queso ever!! And if you're a Texas girl like me, queso is very important! That night we met up with Tanya and her friends to celebrate her birthday at the Glass Cactus in Grapevine. That place was so much fun, Eric just loved it! We ended the night by meeting up with some old friends at a nearby bar and catching up with them as well, which was so much fun!
Sunday we had Easter dinner at Dad's and then headed home. Overall, a great weekend!
This morning I took Bella to the doctors, because she has had a cough forever it seems, and this was the 3rd appointment for her to get checked out. She has a sinus infection, and will start on antibiotics tonight. Hopefully it will make her all better asap! Have a good Monday, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS! Love you!

Tomorrow I pray it will be beautiful and sunny in the DFW area! I am so excited to see my family, and I just want to have fun and no worries all weekend. Bella is already saying "I'm going to Papa's!" all morning! We had to keep reminding her that she has to go to school first and then we'll go to Papa's. She also keeps asking if she gets to see "Ausyn" (her cousin & my Godson, Austyn), I can't tell you how excited she gets when she gets to see him. He is 9 years old, smarter than any kid his age, and just loves Bella! They can play together for hours, and when they get together they usually do!
So, I hope everyone has a safe, fun, & dry weekend!

I am so excited for Bella to see her Papa, Aunt Tanya, Cousin Austyn, & Mary all weekend. She talks to them on the phone often, but getting to see and play with them will be such a treat for her!

Eric is not someone who stresses, that's usually my job since becoming a Mom. Lately, he has come home stressed out almost nightly. I hate seeing him like this, and although I know it's really a good thing for his company and for him to be so busy, I just see the toll it's taking on him. Please help me pray that his job gets just a little less stressful and he returns to his normal happy go lucky self! Thanks!

Saturday was a ton of fun! We started by going grocery shopping around 7 a.m. (we always go that early to beat the crowds, but usually on Sundays) Afterwards we grabbed some breakfast and headed to the outlet malls. Banana Republic was having 40% off everything in the store, so I ended up getting 2 cute spring shirts. Love them! Bella was getting fussy, so we left and went home to get her a nap. We both ended up taking naps as well, which is always nice! When she woke up we grabbed lunch and headed to the Dell Diamond. The Budweiser Clydesdales were in town, so we went and Bella got to see the biggest, most beautiful horses ever! She LOVED it! We also walked around and found the dog that travels with them. She hated to leave, but it was starting to rain so we headed home and grabbed a little Rudy's to eat dinner.
Easter Sunday we woke up around 6 a.m. to get ready, let Bella find the Easter Eggs the Easter Bunny left her, and head to church. Right as we were getting ready to head to church it started pouring! Bella's been sick with a cold for weeks now, and I wasn't going to take the chance of getting her all wet and more sick, so we ended up staying home and missing Mass. I was so disappointed, but decided reading bible verses would help me. It did! Around 10 a.m. we headed to Eric's parents' house for Easter Lunch. They also go Rudy's! (Great minds think alike!) Bella got to go Easter egg hunting there as well. The weather moved out and was bright and sunny that afternoon! Perfect egg hunting weather! We also watched The Masters and cheer Tiger and Lefty on to a 4th & 5th place victory! ;) All in all, a great Easter weekend!
This weekend we are heading to my hometown, Grand Prairie, TX to visit my family. It's my sister's birthday, so we are going to celebrate!

Tomorrow we have many errands to run that are usually left until Sunday. I am in desperate need of work sandals and springy tops, so we'll be heading to the outlets. Also at the Dell Diamond the Budweiser Clydesdales are showing so we want to take Bella to see them.
Sunday we are going to mass at 7:30 a.m. Bella will be up way before then anyway, so hopefully being so early will avoid the massive crowds. We're going to Eric's parents for Easter lunch, and then I will be making a little mini-Easter dinner for the 3 of us.
From The Muñoz Family to yours... Happy Easter!

Overall, it was a nice relaxing Wednesday evening. We never really go anywhere on the week nights let alone sit down and have dinner, so it made it extra special!
