Daddy's Birthday

Yesterday was my daddy’s birthday, and we celebrated it in typical Schoenberger style… the Boat, The American Legion, and some cocktails (NA cocktails for yours truly!). Before we met up with my sister, uncle and aunt I wanted to give daddy his birthday gift.

Gable and I got him a Tervis Tumbler with his NASCAR’s Drivers number on it. #18 Kyle Bush… I can’t stand his driver (I think he is a whiny jerk), so he was very surprised that I bought this for him. It was pretty hard not to give him my driver’s number (Go Carl Edwards!!!). He LOVED his gift and immediately washed it out so he could make his first birthday drink in it.
 Sitting outside on the water with our family (minus Gable... his plane was stuck in NYC)

 My uncle and aunt got him a new walkie/ radio for his boat.
We had so much at my daddy birthday dinner. I laughed so hard that my belly was starting to hurt and tears where running down my checks. I am so thankful for my family!

Our Babymoon Recap

This past weekend Gable and I went on our Babymoon. The original plan was… Gable told me to dress comfy for walking/ sightseeing, and pack us a beach bag. He was taking me to Gasparilla Island during the day to do some exploring. I was so excited to go to a new place that either of us has never been to. Then he told me in the car that after we are bored with Gasparilla Island, then we were going to St. Armond’s Circle to do some shopping, visit the place that we got engaged, lay out at the beach, have a romantic dinner then head home and rent a movie. But Tropical Storm Debby changed our plans… I didn’t care at all. I had Gable all to myself; you would have thought I was a 5 year old going to Disney.

Our bags are packed and ready for the adventure of the day!
 Gasparilla Island took us about two hours to get there. Thankfully we are going back in October for a wedding and will be able to explore the Island a little more and swim in the crystal clear waters. When we arrived to the adorable town it was raining. Gable found us a great resturaunt to eat at and then we did some window shopping. The stores were a bit out of our price range (kids belts for $95) so we didn't really care to shop that long.

 This is the resturaunt that we ate at. It use to be an old train station, and it had some great sea food. I think it was called the Loose Caboose.

After spending sometime in Gasparilla Island we wanted to go to St. Armond's Circle. I could not wait to see the place where Gable and I got engaged. It had been over 6 years since we had been back. But before we made it to our location Gable noticed a Tervis Tumbler store (every southern girls best friend) and then asked me if we wanted to stop and see it. This is not really like him to make a random stop, we usually just reach the destination and don't explore. I couldn't tell if I was more excited to see the store or go off plan :).

The store was my heaven, and they had some great deals that we couldn't pass up. We got a birthday gift purchased and some Christmas gifts (yes I said Christmas... you can never start to early).

When we finally arrived to St. Armonds we did some shopping, got Ice Cream and my favorite Orange chocolate. Then we drove down to the spot that Gable asked me to be his wife. How he proposed is kind of a funny story... or at least to us. But on this board walk they have ZERO street lights, it was pitch black so when he asked me to marry him I thought he was joking (couldn't see the ring!). Well all of these years he swears a light post was around... he was wrong.
 It is crazy to think that a little over 6 years ago we were standing here and he asked me to be his wife. God is so good and we are more blessed than I could have ever imagined!

After exploring for awhile I was noticeable starting to drag a bit. We called it night and started heading back home. Before we made it home we picked up takeout and a movie. It was the perfect night to end the perfect day. I think Gable was upset the day didn't turn out as planned, but I had so much fun. Exploring a new place with my hubby, revisiting one of my favorite places ever and just spending the entire day with no interruptions. Perfect... just perfect!

On Sunday is was planned to be day two of the Babymoon. We were going to go shopping, then dinner to at Bella's. That is the place he took me on our One year Anniversary. But thanks for Debby we were stuck at home!!!! Our houses in the neighborhood are high enough but the streets were all flooded. The best part was we littaraly had nothing great to eat.  
 That is our dock, the seawall disappeared for three days.
 I found brownie mix in our pantry, then we shamefully put a hurting on it.
 Then to occupy our time a litte more we place the Dance game on our Kinect (I think that is what it is called)
 I was playing until my Cankle's started hurting. One of the many joys about being pregnant!!!
 I was clearly sad that I had to stop playing.

That night we watched some TV and then headed to bed a little early. We definatly did not have the conventional Babymoon but it worked perfectly for us. Now we are just going to have to wait for our little guy to arrive! I can't wait to meet this miriacle we are going to be calling our son!

PS... I love you HUBBY!!!!



What I am loving this Wednesday...

I am loving the new show on TLC called Craft Wars. I like to believe that I am somewhat craft savvy but these ladies would put me to shame!
 I am loving that we survived Tropical Storm Debby! Does anyone else think that is a horrible name for a Tropical Storm... she should have been named Debra. Debby makes me think of the Little Debby Cakes, those aren't scray.

I am loving that we are going to Lake City this weeked to celebrate my nephews 10th birthday (I think he was six here but I am working off another computer). He is getting so big and so so so smart!!!

I am loving that TODAY is my daddy's birthday!!!! I can't wait to give him the gift that Gable and I found for him. He is going to love it, and I can't believe that I am the one getting it for him.

I am loving that this handsome hubby is flying home today. And I am loving even more that he doesn't have another business trip planned till late August!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My Work Shower

I know I still need to show everyone pictures from my big shower that my sister hosted, it is coming. But until then...

My work shower was so much fun. The two ladies that hosted it are going to be the two people that I will miss the most while I am away. Caleb was spoiled again with so many wonderful goodies, and the best part was they collected enough money that Gable and I could get our car seat (I have been told this is importantJ), stroller, the extra car seat adaptor, and the stroller accessories. That was such a blessing to have received that gift.

Regina and Carolyn the wonderful hosts

 The best card I have ever seen. My girlfriend Jasmine gave this to me with a matching pair of frocks (fake crocks... to match Gable's). I couldn't stop laughing!!!


take me out to the ball game...

Every year my place of work will have team building days that you can pick to go to. This year we could choose between two different Rays Games or bowling at Splitsville. Of course this girl chose a Rays Game!!!

They give us awesome tickets, money for food, and a day off work.
 The other fun part about going to the Rays Game was this was the event my momma had chosen to go to as well. We had so much fun acting like kids at a ball park; Dip n Dots Ice Cream, doing the 7th inning stretch chant and visiting the Rays tank (at our stadium we have live Rays that you can go pet/ feed).
 Although our team lost horribly we still had the best time! I am really going to miss my coworkers while I am on maternity leave.


Picture Conversation

One of the things that I adore about Gable is he gets me. Take this picture text conversation we just had.

Just another normal conversation between us.



Some of the things that I am loving this week...

This Sunday is Father's day!!!! I have a cute gift to give Gable for his first Father's day. Caleb has no idea how lucky he is that Gable is his daddy. And I also get to spend some time with my amazing daddy.

I have started scrapbooking again. It feels so good to get my creative juices flowing. I ordered some photos and will have to show you my pages when I get done with them.

This Saturday Gable and I are having a date day. He has promised me that I get him with no work interfering, no iPad on, nothing. Just him and me the entire day, I can't wait. So we have planned to go to the beach during the day and layout/ swim/ maybe play frisbee. And then that night we are going to a local beach restaurant to see the sun set. 

And you will rarely hear me say this but Go Gators!!! My cousin plays baseball for UF and they are in the College World Serious. So make sure to route for them!

I am also loving the giveaway Miss Southern Prep is having. Lets cross our fingers and hope I win!!!
