High Five For Friday

And it's actually my Friday!!!! I didn't have a very eventful week. I worked Sunday - today, 3pm - 11pm. A lot of my fall shows did come back this week!!!

I am dedicating my Friday post to my wonderful friend Stephanie Polanco.
I met Stephanie in 2010 while I was living in Los Angeles. I was working at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and she had just gotten a job there. We didn't hit it off right away, I actually couldn't stand her at first, but over time we got to know each other. She eventually became one of my closest and dearest friends!

When I moved out of Los Angeles and back to the East Coast we were able to keep in touch, which I am very grateful for. We would talk on the phone every so often and update each other on what was going on in our lives. Last summmer (2011) she met a boy, Frankie, and fell head over heals in love with him and knew that he was "the one." That fall I got a picture text message of a pregnancy stick showing positive!!!!!!!!!! STEPHANIE WAS PREGGERS!!!! I could not have been happier for her! She was very excited herself. On Christmas Eve Frankie proposed and Stephanie said YES! In March, Stephanie held a baby shower in her home state of Ohio. I drove up from Virginia to be there. She looked fabulous in her stretchy pants, as always! For my shower gift, I gave her 3 children's books: "The Runaway Bunny," "Harold and the Purple Crayon," and "The Mouse, the Red-Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear." Those were three of my favorite books when I was little! I wasn't able to go to the wedding, but on April 18th they were married in Las Vegas, baby yeah!

On May 4, 2012 Frankie Junior was born. He's so freakin' cute!

This past summer Stephanie, Frankie, and Frankie Jr moved back to Ohio to be close to Stephanie's family. I drove up to Cincinnati in July to visit. FJR is getting so big! Here are a few pictures ~
He can't read yet, so he'll just eat "The Runaway Bunny" instead!

Until next time ~ *erica*
