Andrew Broxton has arrived!!

Last Monday morning I flew from Fresno to San Diego bright & early because my sister was being induced!! I was so excited I could not sleep even though my alarm was going to go off at 4:15am. I got to SD, Mimi & Papa picked me up and we headed to the hospital. In the time I was up in the air, Jill got an epidural. She was in great spirits. Josh was so excited for the process to get going too & he was also very happy to see Jill more comfortable! My sister was so amazing. She had a realitivly smooth labor...she progressed quickly and baby Andrew looked great! My poor sister pushed for 4 hours & 15 minutes!!! YES, 4 hours and 15 minutes...Crazy but she was so strong and didnt give up! Josh was the best support for her and her biggest cheerleader! The people next door must have thought he was watching the NBA playoff game and cheering them on! Andrew Broxton Halsey was born on May 27 at 9:03 pm!! He weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces and was 21 inches!! He is perfect in every way! I could not be more happy for my sister and brother-in-law!!! It was so fun snuggling with him! We also did a little photo shoot action while they were still in the hospital!!

My surprise birthday lunch!

On May 7th my girlfriend Sabrina had invited me to go to lunch for my birthday! We decided to go to Max's, one of my favorite lunch places. She said she wanted to do it before my birthday because of my sister being due a week after my birthday. She didnt want me to be gone early and not get to celebrate. I walked in to meet her and was looking down at my phone, much to my shock when I looked up was 6 of my sweet friends!! I was shocked! One of my closes friends Danielle and Sabrina worked together to set up this sweet lunch! Danielle moved to Corona Del Mar in Feb, so I was really shocked to see her standing there. It meant the world to me that Sabrina and Danielle set this up. It was a wonderful afternoon full of friends, great food and blueberry martinis!! My girlfriend Alli had just had twins weeks prior and my friend Nanita has a busy work schedule so the fact that they took time out of their busy schedules to spend this special time with me meant a lot! The very best thing I got out of working For Omni for 3 years was my friend Jessica!! She is the sweetest, most caring, down to earth girl and I couldn't have been happier that she used her lunch hour to come!! These girls know me well and for dessert they had Dodgers cookies made!!
