Celebrating Tina

We celebrated Tina's birthday a little early.  You see, her wonderfully, thoughtful, generous husband is taking her someplace she's always wanted to go for her birthday...NEW YORK! 

For our birthdays Mom always fixes us our favorites!  You can always count on Tina to request twice-baked potatoes.  So yummy!
 We also had ham, creamed corn, homemade rolls, and some salad that was delicious!!!  Mom, once again you outdid yourself!!  (I couldn't resist taking a picture.  Leslie, I knew you'd understand!)
 Picture Time
(We  missed you, Grana!  Hurry home!)
 What a beautiful family!
 LOVE my sisters and any excuse to spend time with them!

Spring Break Kick-Off

The past couple of years Kelly and I taken nearby trips to kick-off the beginning of Spring Break.  It kind of helps us get school out of the system and ready for relaxation and fun.   This year we decided to stick around home in an effort to save money.  (Imagine that!)

My kick-off started a little early with dinner with 4 of my favorite people, aka the Fab Five!  I can't believe it's been so long since we all worked together.  I love that we still keep in touch and can pick up right where we left off anytime we're together.  Girls, I love you!  (And can't believe I didn't get a picture!!)

Friday, I went to dinner with a few girls from work.  It was so much fun to get to know these ladies better!  I love that we all share a passion for kids and our jobs!  After the good food, conversation, and laughs, I felt so relaxed. 
 Saturday was absolutely gorgeous!!  Seriously, it was THE PERFECT day for a horseback ride!!
Spring Break was off to a great start!!


Has it really been THAT long?

I can't believe it's been a month and a half since I've posted!  Wow!  A lot of living has taken place since then.

I LOVE being surprised with a snow day!  There happened to be several in January.  On this day, the sun was shining and it was a a great day to be out playing in it.  I drove over to Tina's to watch the boys have some fun.

 (She just found out there was NO SCHOOL the next day!)
(which brought lots and lots of shoveling)
(We missed you, Woffords!)
We got together to celebrate Tonya and Michelle's birthdays.  We ate at St. Michael's.
We went to see "Just Go With It" after dinner.  It was a great movie!!  GayeAnn was a little added bonus of entertainment when she couldn't stop laughing.  I mean could not stop laughing!  We all (rows in front and behind) got tickled at her.  I haven't laughed that hard in a while!
You can't be downtown and not stop at The Cup!
Hopefully I can get back in the habit now that I'm somewhat caught up!
(Getting behind overwhelms me and adds to the procrastination.)
