Everyone is getting sick!

On Saturday I met my parents at their house because we were going to go cake tasting and order Alexa's first birthday cake. As I was on my way to their house I found out that my parents picked up my nephew because Aron and Ashley were really sick with the flu and needed time to relax. I felt bad for them because the Flu is the worst! It seems like everyone has been sick on Facebook and I'm really happy that I have not caught it. I have been there and done that twice in the same month about 3 years ago. Now that I think about it it seems like it was yesterday because I was deathly ill, it's crazy how time fly's by so quickly. Anyways my parents left their car at my brother's and took his truck so we could all ride together to the cake place. I told my mother that I did not want to drive in his truck because it may have some little bit of germs that I do not want to catch or have Alexa catch. She and my dad thought I was overreacting because it was just a truck and that Aron and Ashley were containing it at their place. I told them that I will just drive my car with Alexa and they can take his truck. My daughter comes first, so I don't care how careful I'm being if that means Alexa and I are healthy.
So my parent's left early Sunday morning because they had a funeral to attend today in Arizona. I didn't want to call and bother them so I decided to just wait for my mom to call me since she always want's to check on Alexa. Well she called this afternoon and guess what my mother told me? She has the FLU! I told her "SEE, I knew I wasn't overreacting!" Alexa did wake up in her crib this morning with vomit in her crib, but she seems just fine. I think she may have stuck her fingers in her mouth a little too far and so her dinner came up, or maybe she had a little bug and is over it. I don't know, but she seems perfectly fine now. :)
These pictures have nothing to do with this post, but I just love her in this beanie and wanted to share!

I need to get better at this!

I haven't blogged in a really really long time. We have been super busy with school, family, and bunch of other things. I'm proud to say that Matthew and I have a resolution to not eat out and we have been clean for 20 days now haha! We realized that we spent so much money on fast food these past few months and that we really needed to stick to buying food in the grocery stores.
Right now Matthew and I are trying to buy our first house in Corona. I know I know, first we moved out of my parent's house to Corona then we move to Anaheim Hills and now back to Corona. It's really cheap out there and you can get a lot more for your buck. So far we have made a few offers on some places, but because they are short sales it may take a while before we hear anything. We would really like to be out of our apartment before July, because that is when our rent goes up, but it really doesn't matter because it also gives us time to save more money the longer we wait. We are really excited to buy our first home together and we really want this one townhouse, so wish us luck that we hear some good news! I just have to say that since we have been trying to buy a house, Matthew and I watch nothing but the DIY channel. (At least until Vampire Diaries comes back on next Thursday YAY) For those of you who don't know it's the do-it-yourself channel about home remodeling. We love watching it! Our really good friends that were our neighbors here in Anaheim Hills moved to Corona in December, so it will be nice to be close to them again. I'm super excited because it's going to be a new chapter in our lives.
Speaking of a new chapter, my adorable daughter is turning the big ONE next month. I have no idea where the time has gone. I remember the morning my water broke at 2AM and riding in the car thinking about meeting Alexa as if it were yesterday. She isn't walking yet, but she pulls herself up to a stand on EVERYTHING and she crawls really fast and get's into EVERYTHING! Planning her 1st birthday party has been really fun because I've made a lot of her party decorations and I also made her party invitation from scratch. Her theme is Minnie Mouse and we are going to have food, fun, and more fun! My dad rented a bounce house that has Minnie and the other Disney characters on it, so it's going to be awesome! I just really hope the weather is beautiful like it has been the last few days. Maybe my grandparents in Heaven will put in a good word and clear the skies for me! :) I have really enjoyed this past year with Alexa! She has touched so many hearts and she is the best baby I could have asked for. She smiles all the time and she is great with everyone!  I'm in a really great place in my life right now and I'm having a blast!
I made her Tutu and I took her picture against a wall  that we put a bed sheet over! It wasn't the best place, but it worked out perfectly!
