Vacays and birthdays.......

Hello friends! Long time no blog, I know. Sorry about the delay. Ever since the hub and I arrived back in Macon Sunday we have hit the ground running. Me- getting back into the daily grind; Adam- working and looking for a new job. This is probably a really dumb question to ask in this shitty economy, but does anyone know who (if anyone) is hiring? So not a fun topic, so let's move on to more important stuff........

My 27th birthday is tomorrow. Woot woot. Okay, I'm not that cool........I FREAKIN' LOVE BIRTHDAYS! Especially mine. ;) Adam and I have no huge plans right now, and that's totally fine with me. I preferred to be surprised anyway. Sunday, a good friend of mine is having a little birthday get-together for both me and another friend who shares a June birthday, also. We plan to have a girls day, lay by the pool, drink margaritas, and hang out. I can't wait. I'm especially glad that it is only girls for our little partay', because this stomach is in no shape to be bared to the public (meaning guys and people I don't know). I'll just say that A LOT of fried shrimp was consumed on family vacay. Oops.

Family vacation was fantastic. Thanks to the many hours spent by the pool (the beach wasn't my favorite) I have a pretty good tan. My mission to get the "tan on" was completed. Friday afternoon me, Adam, my mom, and my sister went to the Beau Rivage. Oh my gosh, it was amazing. The place is gorgeous. I wish I had taken more pictures of the actual hotel, but my mind was on nickel slots and vodka pineapples. The casino was too much fun. I literally sat down at a nickel slot machine within the first 20 minutes of arriving at the casino, put five bucks in the slot, and won $75! I'm not kidding. It was pure luck because I had no idea what the hell I was doing. Here's a picture of me (still so happy from my win) watching my sister, Megan, play the penny slots:

I so would have taken more pictures of the Beau, but got into trouble with a security guard. Hehe........no photography in the casino for some reason. There you go, our first casino experience!

Friday night, my family and my grandparents hung out at our condo and had a birthday party for both me and my dad. My dad will be turning 51 in July. Here's a pic:

That cake is absolutely delish, by the way.

We also headed out to the beach to take pictures. Here are a few:

I told Adam to wear white. He follows directions so well, doncha think?

Seriously cracked up.

The whole Todd/Mosely clan. I kinda love this pic.

We said goodbye to my dad Saturday afternoon. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Just because we've said goodbye before when he left for Iraq in 2005, does not make it any easier this time around. It was actually harder. When he left four years ago, he was younger, a little faster, and situations were different. It's a whole different ball game now, and it's scary. He is the bravest man I know, and I am so incredibly lucky to call him my dad.

Godspeed, dad! We love you so, incredibly much.
