I'll nap with you any day, Lola.

We miss T and Lola. It's been way too long, and we felt like little Lo may be growing up without us. That, of course, is a problem that needed to be solved, so a visit was quickly arranged. I couldn't wait for Saturday - and no one really cared what we did, as long as we didn't have to leave the house - and we got to (finally!!!!) drink our Canadian bubbly.

The morning of, Andy packed up the kids with their bags of love notes, and I packed up my snowpants. Because I got to go sledding with my students! It was cold, but we were more than ready to spend some time outside.
It took 15 years (literally), but finally, Andy and I had a valentines dinner together - spaghetti and meatballs and the two little loves of our world - couldn't get much better...

Birthdays definitely evolve as one ages... I remember birthdays of past, while others are a bit hazy. My 36th birthday was pretty perfect, and began with some of the best birthday messages from T and Dad, Mom, and Colie and (of course) the obligatory Facebook messages that made me smile throughout the day. After school was spent at Bennett's winter conference, where we heard how smart, and witty and kind our dear boy is...

On the eve of my 36th birthday, I'm posting about a first. Had I wanted to be annoying, or ridiculous, or simply like many annoying ridiculous people I know, I would have Facebook-ed it. My status would have been:
Five miles before 5am.
But, I'm only semi-annoying so I told T, and decided to blog about it. Now, I can be happy knowing my bestie is proud of me, and probably my mom and Ms. Anderson, too.
I'll approach it one foot in front if the other. Cheers to 36.
I am going to be 36, right, mom??

Almost 100 days down, and what better way to celebrate than with a 100s project? We talked about several ideas, and AP and the boy came up with an eyeBALL.

Thursday night happy hour was invaded by the husbands. Boo and I were trying to plan a shopping list for an upcoming freezer stocking session, and be very conscious of our budget. Enter AP and Rick, and soon we were buying 40# of chx and 40# beef. AP thought we could "bust out 100 burritos - easy." Go big or go home, that's what they say... Why did we include them? is what I say...
The next morning, we hit up Sam's club, with our list and a strict timeline. We needed to be in and out of that store, because we had a few other stops - which include Jimmy's Pourhouse.
