Our crazy little life lately...

Well, where to begin. Things have been hectic as usual! Last week, Chloe and I had a hair cut date. We both got trims. Chloe got a few layers and about an inch cut off! It was her first REAL hair cut! She always does really good for long as she can spray the water bottle!

Happy as a clam with her water bottle! :)
Chloe has really enjoyed our new patio...well, the few moments it has not been raining anyway. Here is she is marking her territory with the sidewalk chalk!

Last Wednesday was Grandy's Birthday! The whole Jenkins Crew ate dinner at the Country Club. I did not get a group pic but here is Sandy opening our gift. We gave her a gift card and a pictures of all 3 of us from Easter!

We had a nice Memorial Day Weekend. Monday after work, we headed to Don and Sandy's for a cookout. Chloe had on the most adorable dress. She had a big time riding her bike and hanging with Chandler. Well, Chandler snoozed most of the time, but I know Chloe will really enjoying having her to run around with soon enough!
I guess I caught her about to take a drink!
Riding her trike!

Chloe and her KK!

Jenks, Chloe, and Grandy. So sweet. I completely love that she is actually smiling for the camera now! YAY!
Last night, Blake and I went to the Flying High Preview Party. Flying High is a fundraiser put on by the Clarksville Museum every year. It is such a fun event for the Community. I am on the Museum Guild and helped raise donations for the event this year. The Preview Party is a fun time to see some of the major art pieces and for the Museum to say thanks to the Volunteers and Underwriters. It was at the new Water Street Event Center, which, by the way, is an amazing space if you are looking for a place to host something! Here are a few pics from the event.

This is probably not a big deal, but I have recently been letting Chloe walk up and down the stairs without me standing right beside of her. Stairs have always made me nervous. The other day she wanted her "basketball hoop shoot" so I told her to go upstairs and get she did. She went up and down with ZERO problems. I am just so worried she is going to tumble down. Here is a pick of her coming down....

Playing Basketball :) Uncle Scottie would be proud!
Daddy making a "Dog" for Chloe...or maybe it was a bicycle. I can't remember :)
Hope you all have a good weekend. It will hopefully be a relaxing one for us :)

Yay for Concrete!

Who ever thought that I would say that? Yesterday, our neighbor, Josh Dennis poured us some new concrete! We have been talking about doing this for about a good year now...glad to have this project behind us! We had our driveway extended about 15 feet, a side walk poured, and our patio extended. This weekend, my Dad is getting Chloe the swing set she has been talking about for 6 months (SHHH! She does not know yet :))! So, after they assemble that, our yard will be complete! I can't wait! Here are a few pictures!

Jenkins Family-Mother's Day 2009

I had to steal this from Casey--this is a great Jenkins Family Picture!

It's My 100th Post and It's a Long One!!

Well, it has been a bit since I have posted. My partner in crime (Casey) has been out on maternity leave so things have been pretty steady at work. I am definitely not complaining...I would rather be busy than not! :)
Two weekends ago, I went to Nashville for Whitney's Bachelorette Party! We met at Cabana's in Nashville (if you have never been, you need to go)! It was really fun. We sat in an actual Cabana (hence the name). We were able to hook up an Ipod and listen to our own music. It is fun and funky place! After that, we headed to the Hilton to have her Lingerie Shower. She got lots of fun and frisky things! After that, we headed downtown...I had to retire early so I did not hoot with the owls...but, it was a fun Saturday night for sure!

The Friday before Mother's Day, I was invited to a "Mother's Day Tea" at Chloe's School! It was so cute! We had breakfast together...she then presented me with my present. It was a sweet flower she had planted and her little hand print with a fun little poem. It will definitely be something I cherish forever! Here is my sweet girl. Sorry it is not the best camera decided to die right after so this is all I got!

I have to say that I had the most amazing Mother's Day weekend. It started off Friday with the Mother's Day Tea. Saturday, Chloe and I headed to gymnastics. She is really getting into it. I need to take video of her doing the stretches. She does EXACTLY what the teachers do! It is precious! After that, we headed to do some Mother-Daughter shopping. Later in the afternoon, we went to Max's 4th Birthday party. Jimmy and Sarah have been great friend's of ours for quite some time! I always enjoy celebrating their boy's birthdays with them! Chloe loves to play with Max so we hung out well after the birthday party!

Chloe and Max playing with the Treasure in the Treasure Box (It was a Pirate themed birthday)!

Chloe decorating cupcakes. Isn't that the cutest idea. All the kids got to decorate their own! Love that idea.

Sunday (Mother's Day) was AMAZING. I was woken up to Chloe bringing me my Mother's Day Present....and BOY did she do good. She (with some help from Daddy I am sure :)) got me a Essentials Facial from Eden and the sweetest card. Blake gave me the best present of ALL. He got up at 2am and brought my car down to the Dealership. He fully detailed it (took him 4 hours). I mean, washed, waxed (twice), buffed, vacuumed. It was immaculate. I was so thrilled! For those who don't know...I am a clean freak and I love getting into a clean car!

The reason why I get to celebrate Mother's Day--my pride and joy :)

The best Family Picture we have ever taken (it only too 2 1/2 years :))

I have to say that I am truly blessed to be Blake's Wife and Chloe's Mom. I really believe that God knew early on that Blake and I were meant to be. 10 years later, we are going strong and now have a beautiful and bright daughter to share our life with! Thanks Blake and Chloe for making my day so very special. I love you both :)

After that, Blake cooked me, Chloe, and my Mom breakfast! What a Man!! We then headed to Church and then to Lunch at Edwards with the Jenkins Clan. If you have not eaten there, you definitely need to try it! YUM! My Dad paid me a visit with a dozen roses in hand while Blake and Chloe were sleeping.
All in all, best weekend, hands down!

First Meeting....

Went wonderful! Chloe met Chandler last night for the first time! She did great. I think Chloe will really love having a playmate. Watch out Chandler..Chloe will probably want to hold you all the time!!! It was really cute watching her sit down next to her and pat her blanket. Here are a few pictures. Have a good weekend!

Grandy and her girls :)
