1 Year Anniversary

This past year has been amazing, everything we ever dreamed of, and our Anniversary celebration ended our 1st year together on the same magical note it began on.

John planned a surprise anniversary for me.
 Well, not a surprise since I knew there was a plan, let's call it a "blind" anniversary since I knew something was being planned but I didn't know what it was.

First he started by flying my sister out to baby sit the kids, then whisked me away to Atlanta, yes, Atlanta.
Maybe not the most romantic place... unless of course he has planned a private dinner at our wedding venue to recreate our wedding!!
I have talked non stop about our wedding day for the past year saying I wish the day lasted for ever so he took the opportunity to take me back and recreate it.

He got the same lady to make the same flavored cake, a delicious dinner and a a photographer to capture every moment.

I was even able to get my swarovski crystal head piece from Mummy to wear.

We danced to our 1st dance song, he re-read his vows, I wrote something new, and it was amazing!

For almost 4 years now we have talked about how amazing our 1st kiss was and I have had this vision of it in my mind for so long so I thought the perfect gift was to have an artist re-create it for me, and luckily he loved it, even more than I expected him to.

He got me the  most delicate, beautiful very "Becca" ring.  I keep telling him it makes me feel like a perfect present.  I love it!

Then, yes, there is more!  We stayed at Chateau Elan where we stayed our wedding night.  Talk about a flashback day!

As one of my friends pointed out, every day in my life with John is romantic, but this day was amazing.  It was like our wedding all over again!
I will never forget this anniversary, good luck topping it next year John!! lol (I'm sure you will find a way.)

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
