Just a quickie

I am kicking myself now for not taking my camera with me this past weekend on my very quick but very fun trip to Kansas City to spend the evening with my husband who was attending the Western Division conference for his college fraternity. Josh is a Western Division Vice President for Delta Tau Delta, a Chapter Advisor and a Director over 22 college chapters. Just a little something he does in his spare time.

On Saturday morning I flew to KC, spent a relaxing afternoon laying in my hotel room (since Josh was a presenter at the conference), ordering room service and watching the movie Valentine's Day on TV. I was actually able to eat my food while it was still hot and I was able to watch the movie from the beginning to the end without having to pause it for potty breaks. Once you become a mom, it's the simple pleasures like hot food and a good movie on HBO that can easily turn your day from being just okay to being GREAT!

That evening Josh and I attended the formal dinner for the conference where Josh won an award for Outstanding Alumni of the Year. I am very proud of my husband and all the hard work he has done for the Delts. On Sunday we slept in late, had lunch and then headed back home on a flight to Dallas.

It was a quick trip but just the little break we needed since we have both been so busy lately!

Laugh Every Day with the Tickle Monster

If you have young children and you do not own the book Tickle Monster, you have to buy it.

No really, you need to hop in your car right now and find your nearest Barnes and Noble or Borders bookstore. Well, okay I guess they might be closed since it's 11:47pm. In that case you need to log onto Amazon right now, order it and have it shipped to your house. That's probably easier anyway. Plus you will save gas.

Jonah and Meredith love and I mean LOVE this book and have requested it every night since Santa brought it to them for Christmas!

What could be better than adorable blue furry mitts, belly laughs and smiles on everyone's face every night before bedtime??

Snow Day 2011

We had a our first and probably only snow for the year yesterday! Jonah was so excited as the sleet falling slowly turned into tiny snowflakes, then into larger snowflakes, until finally the ground was covered in a white blanket of soft snow. I just love the way the yard looks when it’s completely untouched. It’s just beautiful. But it wasn’t long before we were outside crunching our way through the yard, making snow angels, attempting to build a snowman, and strategizing our snowball fight!
