{Bath Time}

I gave Bella her first bath, and let's just say that it took 3 ppl to get it done! 1 person holding her down, 1 shampooing, and 1 taking pictures ;) Since she's so small, I decided to do it in the bathroom sink where she can actually stand. It was a sight to see, she was so scared and kept trying to climb out. She got the full treatment with blow drying, grooming, and the works!

Today we also had an appointment to get her 3rd puppy shot. The vet gave her another exam and everything looks perfect! She still only weighs about 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 lbs even though I feel that she got bigger since her last appointment.

I just luv her adorable puppy eyes and check out her new hairdo LOL

CeLebrating G-Pa's 80th Birthday!

On Sunday we went out to The Golden Dragon to celebrate my grandpa's 80th Birthday. He's been so sick lately, so it was nice for him to be able to get out and spend some quality time with the family. I am sooo lucky to still have both of my grandparents and I want to enjoy every moment of it, because with their health nothing is ever certain.

We had a great time just talking and enjoying each others company, as you can see from all of these fun pics!

~The whole gang at the table!~

~Gotta Luv the cake the lil' cake they made for him~

We barely have any pics with our grandparents, so this is definitely a keeper ;)

Night Out at the Fountains

After the wedding, we took Bella to the fountains for the first time. It's a very popular place for people to do some shopping, get a bite to eat, and just take a relaxing stroll, so as you can image it's usually very busy and crowded. Today was no different, and we pretty much saw almost everyone we know there, including old friends that I haven't seen in ages.

Bella was so scared of everyone at first and I could barely get her to walk on her leash; however, she got the hang of it towards the end. She was definitely the center of attention everywhere we went. Everyone loved her and wanted to pet and hold her, especially the kids. Poor baby was sooo worn out, she's definitely going to be sleeping good tonight!

Spring Wedding!

Today our good friends Anna and Roman got married! I couldn't be happier for them, and wish them all of the happiness, love, and God's blessings in the world!

My poor hubby was working all night on Friday so as soon as he came home Saturday morning, he passed out on the bed. I on the other hand spent all morning with my mom and aunt creating fruit arrangements for Anna's wedding. We've done them before for my engagement party and wedding and they turned out really nice, so she asked us to make 2 to put on her wedding table. I think our effort payed off, as you can see they turned out really cute.

The wedding was beautiful and Anna looked gorgeous ;) I especially loved all the food, soo yummy, and the program they had was very humorous and entertaining. I even sang a song for the bride and groom along with my sisters and friend Julie. Their mics weren't working that great, but either way it turned out pretty good. It was such a blessed day, I don't think they could have asked for anything better!

Taking a quick pic with the bride and groom!

Me and my gorgeous sisters, they were both bridesmaids at the wedding.
Looks like my hubby found himself a new girlfriend ;)

The New Cake Diet!

I've had a long week at school, with everything due at the same time, and I'm glad that it's all finally over for now. After spending the whole Friday relaxing in my pjs, I randomly decided to bake my hubby's favorite cake. It turned out delicious as always ;)

I definitely need to go on a diet and start working out more, I gained like 5 lbs in the last month and seriously need to lose it before summer! I think it's probably from all the stress that I've been having from school. I'm hoping to start a new diet and exercise routine on Monday, but we'll see how that goes.

BAP Family Picnic

On Saturday I took Bella to the park for the first time where we had our Beta Alpha Psi family picnic. It was so much fun and I finally got to introduce my hubby to all of my school friends. Everyone brought their kids and families and we even had a few alumni come. We spent the day eating barbecue, listening to music, and playing games like sumi wrestling, musical chairs and the water balloon toss. Everyone loved Bella and couldn't get enough of her. Poor baby she was so worn out after the picnic, that she slept the whole way home!

Happy Easter!!!

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter Sunday filled with many blessings, I know I definitely did!!! We started off the morning with an Easter Egg Hunt for my sunday school class. I never knew they were so competitive! They were sliding up and down the grass, and pushing anyone who was in the way just to collect the most eggs and win the "grand prize" chocolate bunny. They were too funny to watch. The grass was still slightly wet from the morning dew and some of the kids had a little too much fun in the dirt (I hope the parents won't be too mad ).

We had a huge Easter Lunch at my parents house, with all of our friends and relatives there. I took Bella with me and dressed her up in the cutest Easter dress ever, let me say nobody could get their hands off her. My poor baby, she was so worn out from everyone trying to pet her, take pictures, and play with her.

The service tonight was wonderful and very close to the heart. We had some amazing preachers, with great words of wisdom. Our worship group sang beautifully and my choir sounded phenomenal. You could tell we all worked really hard to make this the best Easter Service ever, and it really showed!

I'll leave with a couple of cutie pics of Bella

My Baby BeLLa

I've been devastated ever since my puppy passed away last year, and I've waited quite a while before deciding that it was finally time to get another one. I was soo attached to him and it was hard to let go and start over with a new puppy. Once my hubby and I decided for sure, I started researching immediately. I was on Spring break the whole week, so it was the perfect timing! I found a breeder and probably called her like a million times to make sure that we were making the right choice and knew what we were getting into. I arranged to meet with the breeder at the vet, and anxiously waited for a couple of days to finally meet her.

When I first saw her, I could barely believe it, she was sooo tiny. She was only 1.6lbs and looked more like a fluffy little squirrel than a dog xexe.

Ever since then, Bella has been such a joy. You can't look at her adorable little face without smiling :) She's very smart and already knows how to use her potty box. She loves to cuddle with me and follows me around the house where every I go!

Been trying to take some pics of her, but can't get her to stay still. Here are some that I got from the breeder and a few that I managed to actually take.

Only a puppy, and already all blinged out ... What do you expect, she's a girl ;)

Larry's 25th Birthday

My hubby turned 25 on March 30th and I've been planning a surprise B-day party for him for the past 2-3 weeks. Its been sooo hard cuz he's always really sneaky and finds out everything before I even get a chance. Especially since I'm really bad at keeping secrets, so he usually gets it out of me anyways.

But this time it was different, I kept my mouth shut and he totally had no clue what was going on when I brought him to the hotel. I told him that we had to pick up some tickets from my dad and he completely fell for it xexe.

Everything went great just as I planned it! The decorations and table setting were beautiful, the food was delicious, and the company was hilarious. We all had so much fun playing games, and telling good stories about Larry (he obviously didn't like that too much).

The one thing I forgot to do was to charge my camera, so that explains the lack of pictures in this post :( Looks like I'm going to have to hunt down the guests for some more pics to post later!

Vegas Day 2 & 3

Vegas was so fun!!! After the initial bad day everything definitely started getting better. There was so much to do and so many places to see that we didn't even know where to start. We must have walked the strip up and down like 10 times LoL I went gambling the first time ever and won $65!!! ... Not bad for an inexperienced gambler like myself. We watched a couple of shows and ate at a few kool restaurants. Everywhere we went there was something new so we took tons and tons of pics for memories. It was great but I don't know we're going to be coming back anytime soon. Too much smokers and drunks all over the place, not really my kinda crowd!

Anyways... Here are a few pics from our trip (And by a few I mean a lot). Thanks again to my hubby for this wonderful surprise ... you're the best ;)

They had the coolest fountain show... This pic doesn't do it justice!
Looks just like the real thing ;)
