Trying to catch up after 2 days on the road...

It was so fun meeting up with you - even Josh said he had a great time. My Dis friends are the best - and I think that secretly, he loves Dismeets.

Nope, I was a good girl - no flip-flop stores for me.

I loved the bagel-banana for Ariana... It was too funny!

I just loved meeting up with all of you - it was definately the highlight of our trip to TN. Annnnd... A little birdie has been plotting a trip back over Christmas vacation -GIRLS & MM included this time. Longer trip... but with a detour trip to Ashland, NC to see the Biltmore mansion decorated for Christmas. Alli would go CRAZY with her camera for that one - I am sure!

Love to all of you - seriously - you are the bestest friends a girl can have. (((Hugs)))

yes!!! we will be going into every Camera shop around the greater Chicago area...

put it this way.. Just imagine how many shoe stores there are in MOA.. Yeah we hit every single one of them I love shoes just as much as the next one.. Yet each store HAD THE SAME PAIR OF FLIP FLOPS!!!

I still love the gals...
Well, I ended up sharing the couch with someone during the movie last night....

Brian hurried and finished his school work so that he could watch the movie with me. Yes, there were no kids at home, but there we were watching an animated Disney movie together. We both had a Blizzard...and then had to snuggle under blankets to keep warm. It was a fantastic night!

Yep, that is exactly what D~ told me you said about the flip-flop shopping... "every store had the SAME flip-flops!" And she defended herself by saying "You never know who has the best prices..."

Y'all are too funny, and I cannot wait to hang out with all three of you someday!

I hope beyond hopes that you make it back for Christmas!!! I get lots of paid time off during the two weeks of Christmas and New Years, so a day trip to Knoxville would not be a problem at all. I would LOVE for our girls to all get to spend a bit of time together, I have a feeling V and Jillian would get along great.

I have never gone to the Biltmore, but my BFF is a photographer and makes an annual pilgrimage to that place...so yes, Alli will have a field day there I am sure!

I love that you and hubby cuddled under blankes after eating your ice cream to watch Frozen. That is just too sweet.

for the Mickey mail. I'm so glad Disney did it for all three kids.

I am quite certain that we will. I agree- If we make it down, I would really like to spend a whole day together somewhere... Don't know where? But I would love for the girls to spend some time together. I agree- I think they would get along great!

Jealous.... That is all. Now that you've met Josh - maybe you understand my woes? LOL

Pixie Dust from Canada, Eh!

I was on the road for 8 hours Saturday going to pick up my kids from their week at my parents' house for Spring Break. While we were on the road, Brian texted to tell us we had a package from CHEEKY that had arrived.

We got home, and the kids had to tear into it right away:





A sweet little Bambi card:



Birthday and Easter goodies for Charity:



I had to get a close up of these earrings, because they are SO CUTE!! (and according to my girls "food earrings are all the rage right now", so you did REALLY good Cheeky, LOL!)



Easter treats for Jillian and Gabe:



We are totally playing the Bunny Ear Ring Toss Game on Easter Sunday!!!



I tucked the glow bracelets away for the cruise...

And fun stuff for me too:



Cheeky sews thEsE super cute kitchen sets now to help fun her Disney addiction, and she was so sweet to send my favorite one to me. Can't wait to use that tea towel to hang in our bathroom on the cruise...since it is Halloween themed. Check out her FB page to see what other cute sets she has to offer: https://www.facebook.com/groups/203706209840448/

Once again, Cheeky brought so many smiles to our home. I can never say enough how much this friend means to me, and to our family. LOVE YOU CHEEKYPOPPINS!!!!

Okay, wanna know what the BIG HIT was with everyone? The Kinder Eggs. I have not gotten to try them yet, due to this diet thing...but I will try one this weekend. Meanwhile, the kids have gone nuts over them! You should hear the "oohs and aahs" going on when they eat those things.

I was so surprised they got something back! That, of course, was the intent when the letters were written, but I had heard from many folks that they never got anything in return. So, that was a VERY pleasant surprise for us!
