Our Arrow

Two weeks ago Hubby & I found out that our Baby is in Heaven. Focusing on Psalm 127, our Baby was a gift, and was our Arrow :) All Arrows' goals are to hit their target. It has been a great comfort to know that our Arrow has already hit the mark!
We decided to get memorial tattoos to always have with us for our Baby. Mine is on my forearm, and I love it! It came out so much better than I was imagining!
Hubby's is on his calf, and is much bigger than mine, contrary to how these 2 pictures make them seem. I love how his turned out as well!

We will always have the memory of our Baby, and cannot wait to hold him or her one day!

My Baby

Our Baby is in Heaven.

Psalm 127:3-5a Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them...

Our Arrow has already hit it's target.
We were able to share some very special memories with our Baby during it's short life. I am truly grateful for the amount of time we had with our Arrow.
We found out we were pregnant on my 31st birthday! Baby & I ate Pho & went shopping at Hong Kong Market with my Sister's & the kids to celebrate!
The next day we told everyone about Baby at my birthday party! We have a very loved child :)
Daddy & Oma took us to a TobyMac concert! We had a such a great time!
We walked a 5k with Nanny, Aunt Jamie, Uncle Craig, & Daddy. Anything for chocolate right?!
We met Santa! He was very happy to hear about Baby's first Christmas!
Mommy & Daddy took Baby to see 2 movies! The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2, and Star Wars Force Awakens (I think Baby liked Mockingjay more, but don't tell Daddy)
Daddy's Christmas gift to Mommy & Baby :)
and Baby's Christmas gifts from both of us. We had a wonderful celebration of Jesus' Birthday with our Baby!
11 weeks, we had 11 wonderful weeks to spend with our Baby! We love you! Mommy & Daddy can't wait to see you and hold you!

Christmas Tamales

Did you know that Christmas Tamales are a thing? How did I grow up in TX & not know about this?! It seemed this year all my FB friends were talking about their Christmas tamales, which made this pregnant girl need some tamales!!
 The day after Christmas Hubby took me to his favorite place to get tamales, Dallas Tortilla Factory :) We walked in & the lady behind the counter was telling her customer they only had beef tamales left. Then it was our turn, and she told us she had one dozen beef tamales left! All my FB friends must have cleared them out ;)
So we took the last dozen tamales (sorry to the ladies who walked into the store as we were leaving!). They were just what Baby ordered! Goodness they were good! We will be going back to try other flavors! If you are in the market for good tamales & don't have a little grandma in your family who makes them, then I recommend trying these! Just maybe not the day after Christmas!

Best Birthday!

 Ghost has an announcement :)
 Thursday was my 31st birthday & I had the greatest gift! That morning I found out I was pregnant! So I bought this shirt & surprised everyone at my birthday celebration :) Everyone has been so excited! We truly appreciate all the well wishes and prayers!
With all the baby excitement I forgot to take pictures of the actual party, but he had a Blue Bell Ice Cream social :) Had to celebrate Blue Bell coming back to TX!!
 Then Hubby & his mom took me to a TobyMac concert!! I love him!!
 Dallas loves him!!
 Then we went to a 5k on Sunday. I gave all my chocolate away ;)
It was quite the festive weekend! Monday marked 5 weeks for the bundle of joy growing inside me! I am so excited and nervous all together! Fourtunately, most of my friends have had kids & don't mind my weird freakout texts & questions :)
We are going to have a BABY!!!!!

Zagun Latin Cafe & Bakery

Yesterday we celebrated our friend Eric's birthday :) We ate at Zagun Latin Cafe & Bakery on Oak Lawn.
We ate so much great food! This is the Cachapas (Venezulan/Columbian sweet corn turnover) filled with beef & cheese with plaintain chips. It was very very yummy! We also had beef, chicken, & cheese empanadas. My favorite was the Tequenos (Venezuelan cheese sticks) instead of being breaded the cheese was wrapped in dough & fried - Amazing!
We ended the meal with Dulce De Leche, see that bite of caramel on top? I saved that bite for last ;)

Happy birthday Eric!! Thanks for inviting us to your celebration! Make this an amazing year!!

My Truck

This is my very first vehicle :) 1997 Ford Ranger, I love this truck, I drove it for 12 years! But it was stolen from our driveway almost 3 weeks ago :( I did not handle the situation well at first, I discovered I was to emotionally attached to an object. I asked for a lot of prayer & prayer works!
Today Hubby & his Dad went truck shopping based on a list we compiled from online ads. This 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac was #1 on my list, and they decided it was in great shape & bought it for me! :)
It is beautiful & I am very thankful!!

Welcome Back Blue Bell

Blue Bell was welcomed back to Dallas with open arms (& open wallets) this morning! By the time we made it to the store, the shelves were bare (they did have some Dutch Chocolate in the front, but we were looking for Homemade Vanilla)! I called 3 other stores, also with bare shelves!
Then we found it!
They already have a Blue Bell factory up & running in Heaven ;)
Hubby's Mom's pup got in on the action as well :)
She licked the bowl clean!
So have you had Blue Bell today yet? Is it back where you live? If not, don't lose hope, it's worth the wait! :) Welcome back Blue Bell! As the store shelves prove, you were missed!
