Friday's Fabulous Five!

It has been a little while since I have posted anything, but Adam is gone for the week out of town and so I thought that if he could read something posted from Caroline and I, it would help him feel not so far away!
1- Adam is one day closer to being home! He is out in D.C. staying with our wonderful friends, thanks Gardner's!, for a week and attending a patent bar review course. He will be working so hard, in training classes all day. I really am so proud of Adam, and miss him fiercely.
2- It was Gigi's, my grandmother's, birthday this week! She turned 84 years old and is the most unforgettable, amazing person. She is classy, funny, smart, and spontaneous. Once she took my siblings and I on a picnic in Wyoming just on a whim. She will beat anyone in Trivial Pursuit. She did a headstand not too long ago just to prove she could still do one. She knows a song for every word that exists. She's an artist. She has overcome so many physical ailments and blessed us with her presence everyday. We LOVE you Gigi!!
3- Gigi opened my taste buds to her favorite restaurant in Ogden Canyon. We went for lunch with my mom, Aunt Joan, cousins Melissa and Hope, and my brother Matt. Rainbow Gardens...ring a bell to anyone? If not, I highly recommend it, the food was divine, the dessert...even better. It was also so fun to be with extended family to catch up.
4- I don't work on Tuesdays anymore! I can't explain the excitement I feel, the freedom. Caroline get ready to party! That day off will be so cherished.
5- Valentine's was romantic, and a mini vacation! We went out of town to downtown! Thanks Gae for watching Caroline. I don't know what it is also, but reservations are so romantic to me, and Adam made them at Spencer's steakhouse...mmmm. I guess it's just the thought that goes into that. And flowers delivered to work?! Another big plus for memorable.

Friday's Fabulous Five

1- Happy Happy Birthday Mom!! My mom is the best. She goes above and beyond for anyone, especially her kids. It seems like she knows how to do anything, cook it, fix it, make it...she's a whiz and I want to learn all she knows how to do. I love all of the handmade things that she makes for Caroline and for me!...sweaters, quilts, skirts, dresses, socks, etc. We have so much fun hanging out and gallivanting around town. She's always there for us, even when I have been thousands of miles away she would call or e-mail often. We love you mom!
2- No work today!!! Woo Hoo, it was the best. Caroline and I had such a blast looking for pinecones outside, coloring (and tasting crayons), dancing, and putting on several pairs of shoes.
3- One of my old roomies and dear friend from highschool got engaged recently! It has been so fun talking about wedding plans with her and going with her to look a dresses...can Adam and I do it all over again? I would LOVE to.
4- We have been planning some family trips for summer...I am always up for a trip!
5- We have so so many people who help us out so much when we need it. Thanks for giving us so much of your time and for loving our sweet little Caroline!!

My Sweet Girls

So Andrea does most of the blogging, cleaning, loving, cuddling, budgeting, working, and just about every other action verb that you can think of around our house. I sure am lucky to have her! Here is a picture of one of those precious moments with momma and her little girl. I love you both!!!
