May Birthday's

My sister and her family do not mess around with the May Birthdays.

May 1st, is when this precious baby girl was born.

Her mom's birthday is May 7th.
I think she looks great here, especially for having the baby six days before this!

And her son's birthday is May 11th.

Dad's birthday is not in May though. Still 3 out of the 4 in the family in a two week period.
Happy Birth-Day LeiLani!
Happy Birthday Anniversary Amber & Bradley!

Cap'n Bobby

My husband and Cap'n Bobby have a bro-mance. Something I appreciate most days, because because I know to many men that don't really have any friends other than their wives...

Cap'n Bobby is everyone's favorite uncle/buddy/drinking partner/friend. We went over there the other day when it was cold and rainy to go in the hot tub, and this is what he came out in, ready to go in the hot tub.

Yes ladies, he is single, and a sexy beast.

Birthday Extravaganza

My birthday, was well over a month ago. In the midst of having three part time jobs I have not put up the pictures from that day yet. Wait, who am I kidding, in the midst of being unemployed it is not like I got pictures up any sooner. In my defense, I do not have internet at home. If I did, I am quite confident that I would get posts up in a more timely fashion.

So, my birthday was on a Saturday, so I wanted to go wine tasting with all of my friends. Even with a month's notice, most of them could not show up at the end of the day, so here is who we had.

My brother-in-law is on the end, who does not normally have a black beard, and is in fact blond, but was going to a giants game later in the weekend, and died it for the occasion. Dirk, my friend from Sacramento is next to him, then me, and then the husband. This is our first or second stop of the day.

This is my sister, aka the driver's, self portrait. Sad face here for not being able to taste with us. In our defense, she was driving because she was pregnant.

And the husband and I somewhere along the road.
Shortly after this, and me being disappointed that most of my friends bailed out, we decided that next year we are not going to have any b-day parties.

New shoes, new shoes, la, la, la, la, la, la!

For those who read my site semi-consistently, they know that I love my TOMS SHOES. So, I have been wanting to personalize a pair for a long time now. The primary problem with this is that I am not artistic, at all.

Enter my bestie's cousin. A "starving student/artist" who isn't starving at all, but is going to SF Academy of Art, and looking for ways to get a little extra side cash coming in. So, the bestie bought me the shoes for my b-day and delivered them to her cousin. I wrote here a note saying I was thinking a paisley/floral/grassy something... And, this is what I ended up with a month later.

Oh yes, they are AWE (wait for it) SOME!

The problem continues to be, that they have so many awesome shoes on their website, I want more. I love the green crochet TOMS they have in right now for summer, but I think the next pair I need to get should be a pair of high hills, since I have heard good things about them... So many shoes, so little time.

The Baran's

Something you need to know about the Baran's, is that they pretty much don't pass up an opportunity to drink, my in-laws, my husband, and his brother are all like this.

So, here we are on Sunday after I have had about 2 hours of sleep, and just before we go to see Baby LeiLani, doing some wine tasting, in true Baran form.

May Day

The most precious May Day gift did not come in a basket this year, but from my sister. My newest niece was born May 1st at about 5:21 am weighing 7 lbs, 12 oz.

Here she is, LeiLani Angelina Silva being weighed.
And the family, Dad, Thomas, and Mom, Amber.

Her big brother did come meet her a couple hours later. Apparently he was disappointed she was not bigger. He wanted her to be big enough so he could play with her now. He was there for a few minutes, then announced that he needed to go because he had a party to go to and he had to go see his friends.

Auntie Pie finally getting to hold her, with the the doctor in the background.
Uncle Steve meeting her for the first time later that day.

My MIL and FIL were in town too. So, they would not pass up the opportunity to meet her. Especially since she gave her five home-made stuffed animals that were very precious. I am quite sure after holding this precious baby, my MIL will not be satisfied until the husband and I have one.

My oldest niece was very excited about finally having a girl cousin. Since she is the only girl with two brothers, and four boy cousins. I asked her the other day if she was going to be ok with another princess in the group, and she informed me that she could teach LeiLani everything that it takes to be a princess. I told her that was good, since she is the oldest and will frequently have to set the example. However, after realizing that she is the oldest princess, she thought for a moment, then exclaimed, "I could be QUEEN!!!!"

Congratulations Amber, Thomas and Bradley...
Jenica too, who has wanted another girl cousin for a long time.
