Fugo De Chao- Birthday Celebration!

Friday the 14th was my 26th birthday and Rusty surprised me with a great birthday dinner. We both had off on Friday and he planned a great day for us ;)

He told me that we were going out to eat somewhere at the inner harbor in Baltimore and somehow he was able to keep the secret from me (which is not easy, I usually try to pull it out of him!) He even made the reservations on Monday, which is really impressive for him (he is not a planner at ALL!)

We ended up eating at Fugo De Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse which was AMAZING!!!! The loaded salad bar, meat, fried corn critters (not sure what they are really called), and loaded mashed potatoes were all very good!!!!! Not to mention the Chocolate Molten Lava Cake..... absolutely wonderful!!!!! I wish I had a picture to share, but it is on my phone and still have not figured out how to put them on the computer (still learning my new phone!)

It was a great birthday.... hard to believe I am another year older! Getting close to 30......haha

I so can not wait for the next three days.... I am FREE!!!!! I will be spending tomorrow with this wonderful guy....

Tomorrow is my 26th Birthday and both Rusty and I are off to celebrate, I can not wait! He has a special birthday dinner planned.... it is a surprise and I can't wait to find out where we are going.

I have off the rest of the weekend as well, three days off in a row (a very rare occurrence for me!)

Until next time.... I will be enjoying my freedom and relaxation!!!

Self Worth......

According to, self worth is defined as "the sense of one's own value or worth as a person; self-esteem"

Also according to, self esteem is defined as "a realistic respect for or favorable impression of oneself"

Does anyone else also struggle with both of these two words???

Happy Birthday Snickers!!!

New Years day we celebrated Snickers 3rd Birthday.... hard to believe he is already three years old! I remember (just like yesterday) the day we first got him.... he was so excited to meet his new parents that he had a little accident on Rusty's shirt (nothing like some fresh pee on your shirt-ha).

We had a little birthday party at the house with Snicker's best friend (Sophia, of course!) They celebrated with peanut butter cups for dogs.... they loved them!

Here is the birthday boy.... I think he had a good day :)

Happy New Year!

I can not believe another year has gone by and we are starting 2011! I guess time really does fly when you are having fun :)

2010..... you were a good year, filled with fun, excitement, changes, sadness, and many memories! Here is a highlight of our year....

My grandmother passed away on 12/31/09... we started off the new year celebrating her life and saying our final good-byes, I am happy to not be attending a funeral at the start of 2011 (not a lot of fun!)

We celebrated my 25th Birthday at Walt Disney World in the FREEZING cold (but still a good time)

I resigned from my position at the in-patient hospice unit and accepted a new position closer to home doing home hospice care: scary change, but very good decision!

My niece Hannah was born and I became a godmother for the second time :)

We celebrated Rusty's 30th Birthday at Walt Disney World... this time in the heat of July and also celebrated the 4th of July (wonderful fireworks at Disney!)

We finished our home office.... nice place for me to do some work from home with my new job!

Sophia celebrated her 2nd Birthday.... of course with a little birthday party :)

We vacationed with Alex and Fred at Disney and celebrated their engagement!!

Overall, we have had a great year!! We had a very low-key New Years Eve- just me and the hubby (besides the neighbors stopping by for a quick visit). We ate crab cakes, steamed shrimp, and taco dip- all VERY wonderful!!
We entertained ourselves with Season 8 (the final season) of 24! I love me some Jack Bauer!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today we are celebrating New Years Day and Snicker's 3rd Birthday! I will do a post on that next. We also went out to dinner with our best friends Danny and Julie and played some pretty awesome Wii games- always a good time!!!

Hope everyone is having a great start to 2011.... I know we are!
