Friday Favorites 11/11

I can't believe last week I was Universal Islands of Adventure in Florida.  Since then I've seen Train perform for a intimate crowd, been to the Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios, flew home for Emily's 5th birthday along with all the normal day to day stuff.

I traveled to Orlando last week for the National Association of Realtors Expo and Conference where I got to network with realtors all over the world, learn about issues affecting homeownership, and have a little fun as well.  We got to go to Universal Islands of Adventure, Magic Kingdom and on our last night Universal Studios was closed for NAR.  Universal Studios was our favorite of all three; it didn't hurt that we had the park to ourselves.

We felt so guilty for going to Disney without our girls.  Let's hope our 5 and 2 year old don't end up on the blog, lol.

We flew home and went straight to celebrating our little girl who is 5 going on 15.  She is strong willed and high energy (which can be exhausting) but she is the kindest, most empathetic person I know.  She is EXTREMELY helpful around the house and aims to please.  She's an exceptional big sister and always puts everyone before herself, which I think is very strange for such a young girl.  On one hand I can't wait to see the young lady and woman she will become and on the other I want to FREEZE time!!! I keep asking her if she will stay small and she laughs and says no.  I don't pretend to think I have perfect children but I am so beyond proud of this little girl.  She made me a mother and forever we will have a special bond.  Wishing this angel the best year and I can only pray I will be here to celebrate decades of birthdays with her.

All the grandparents came over to celebrate Emily with pizza, cake and ice cream.

Emily is scoping out the American Girl Doll catalog because for her birthday we told her that grandma, Voa Voa and I are taking her to the American Girl Doll Mecca for her to pick out a doll and have a girls trip.

She also got new bedding for her birthday and although the pictures came out blurry I had to share them because she was ecstatic.

Thank you to Beddy's for sending Emily all new bedding and even a Beddy's Buddy which she instantly fell in love with.  Stay tuned for a room makeover with the best bedding you will ever find!

Also during my week I had the absolute pleasure of touring Expo Party Rentals here in Fresno.  I was extremely impressed with their show room, services, supplies and especially their team.  I can't wait to share more with you, so stay tuned.
