Here's a couple videos I took on Bella's birthday (9/21/10). I will be posting a much bigger blog of her special day in the next couple days. I took a TON of pics so bear with me lol. P.S. If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong when trying to embed my videos, please share. I include the link in the box and post, but nothing shows up. Thanks.

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?
I would have to say Scottish and this is why ;) Gerard Butler I heart you :)
2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)
Sadly no. I have trouble sleeping most nights due to the aches, but if I have a pillow behind me, one between my legs, one under my head and one to hug, I sleep fairly well. lol My daughters on the other hand can sleep just about anywhere. :)
3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?
LOL! If that's the last option then yes. I do put tp on the seat beforehand though! ;)
4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?
That's a hard one! Hmmm..... I'm gonna go with a comedian. Someone who would keep me laughing and entertained. Someone completely fun to be stuck with for 24 hours. I don't think I would feel too comfortable being with a man though, so I pick Chelsea Handler. She keeps me laughing :D
5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?
Our first couple dates were either with other couples or friends, so I won't go by those. Our first ALONE date was at FunFest Entertainment Center in Harmarville. We skipped the bowling and played pool lol. I didn't want to make a bad impression. Let's just say I bowl funny haha!.
Matt lived almost an hour away from me and that seemed to be our meetup place. I remember him being so shy around me. It was adorable. Brings back very fond memories. :)
Well, tomorrow is Bella's 1st birthday party and I still have a lot to do. Back to cooking more food. Have a wonderful Friday!

On Monday I took the girls to their first tea party. We went over to one of the moms place, I met through the mommy group I joined. I was a bit nervous at first, but quickly felt at ease. She has a lovely home with a ton of toys for the kiddos to play with. Plus, there's nothing warmer than walking into a place that smells of fresh baked cookies. Yummy!
All the girls were having so much fun that they didn't have much time for tea lol. We just let them play while we talked and enjoyed all the goodies Miranda made. She's a great cook. I can't wait to make mummy cupcakes next month :).
Thanks Miranda for opening up your home and allowing us to be a part of your tea party/play date. Alaina keeps asking when we're going to play with the girls, so we will have to do it again soon. Also, thanks Jen and Gretchen for being so welcoming. I look forward to having more meetups with you.:)
my girls :)
She was so excited!

Last Sunday(9/19/10) Alaina and I went out to breakfast and shopping for Bella's birthday, while Bella went with daddy to a car race in North Park. It was her first time in the Mustang. Then my dad came over with Ethan to visit. Nice Sunday.

On Saturday we went to a friend of ours sons 1st birthday party. It was a really nice party. His mom Maria even made all the decor and had the party catered.
Alaina was thrilled to see her friend Gillian. They get along so well. It's adorable to watch. Bella loved seeing all the kids there. She tried to keep up with them, but they were just too fast for her lil feet :). It won't be long baby girl.
John Preston looked so cute eating his smash cake and had a blast opening all of his gifts. He even got a Mercedes ride on toy! Wow! Happy 1st Birthday John Preston! Much love!
