Today is a good day,

And tomorrow will be a better day!  In just a matter of hours I will be taking my husband to a Brad Paisley concert for his birthday, and then whisking him away, unbeknownst to him, to a cozy bed and breakfast on the beach for a weekend getaway!  Whoohooo!

Chocolate...need I say more?

Moonstruck Candies, Portland, Ohio(Courtesy Moonstruck)

Have you been to Moonstruck in Portland yet?  If not, you MUST!  And get the Chocolate Mayan, you'll never be the same.  It was just featured in an MSN article as one of the top confectioners in the nation.  And the picture was so darn pretty, I just had to share.

My big girl

Sagie turned 2 today.  She's getting to be such a grown up little girl.  All I hear all day is "I do it!"  She won't let me get her dressed, put on her shoes, do her buckles, open her juice boxes or string cheese.  She's just too grown up to have people doing things for her.  Which is so funny to me, because I don't think I ever heard Jaxon say that once.  He was more than happy to be taken care of.  I think in the long run, I'll be more appreciative of it, but for now it makes things a little tricky.  Especially when she wants to change her own dirty diapers!  Sage loves her brother, and always refers to him as brother, not Jaxon.  She loves her morning walks, especially when she can bring her baby doll and stroller along.  She loves Life cereal and oatmeal.  She likes to help me clean up, and always pulls out her toy vacuum when I am vacuuming.  She's got a fiery personality, and rather than being calm and rational in situations, she tends to scream.  She's a fantastic screamer.  But she's also so kind and loving.  She knows just when I need a big hug, and always greets her daddy at the door with a huge smile.  She's passionate and fun and she is my little princess, and I love her to the moon and back!  Happy Birthday my big girl. 

I love you!
