Taking "us" time to celebrate...

I thought I'd better jump on here and do a quick post before another week got by me.
Well, tomorrow is Mister M's last day at work for 2008. He is FINALLY taking some much needed time off. I'm not going to know how to act with him being home with me for 2+ weeks. But I'm excited though. Next week he'll even get to see how much time I actually spend at Jayla's school :-).
Shortly after Jayla gets home from school tomorrow, Mister M. and I are heading to a hotel for the night. And then tomorrow evening, we're going out to dinner for our anniversary at our favorite restaurant. Yep, I said our ANNIVERSARY! It seems like I just did a post about that very event not so long ago. Although all of our anniversaries are special, this year is REALLY going to be. Our actual anniversary is on Wednesday the 17th. And this year we're celebrating 20 years of marriage! WHEW!!! Where did the time go?
Jayla will be spending the evening and Saturday here with her Grandma. And from what Jayla says (thinks), she and Grandma have big plans, lol. Jayla has it in her head that she and mom will be going bowling (mom doesn't drive and doesn't know how to bowl, mind you.) and doing eachothers nails and you know, just "girl bonding" time :-). Mom seemed a little surprised this morning when I asked her about their plans. She wasn't aware of ANY of it :-). But she did say that them doing eachothers nails and the "girl time" will definitely happen. All I have to say about that is...60 second drying time nail polish! :-).
Back to the anniversary celebration for a moment...when we get back sometime Saturday evening, I HOPE to have something very special to share with you. So check back for that.
I know it's been a while since I've given you guys a Flower Fix, so how bout I do that now?
And last, but definitely not least, I'd like to end my post today with a special tribute. On Sunday, December 7th, this little girl had a birthday.
Isn't she the cutest little chubby thing? Well look at her now....

Simply gorgeous! My oldest baby, Briyanna turned 24 years old on Sunday. Happy Birthday sweetie, I love you and I'm SOOO proud of you! Keep up the good work.

That's it for now. I'll be talking to you guys soon. Have a great weekend...I know I will!!! :-)
