Things I Love

MY HUSBAND: Saturday we went out on a date! Can you believe it? We went downtown to Osaka's for some sushi, then on to Gerald's martini bar for a drink.    

MY GARMIN GPS: I wasn't super excited about this until today. It is really easy to use and took me everywhere I needed to go!  It even clocks your speed (even though I would never speed...he he )

SADIE'S NEW OT: Today we traveled to Tyler to meet Sadie's new OT. She was intense, but I really liked her.  I know Sadie will benefit from her aggressive treatment plan.

PLANNING BEN'S BIRTHDAY BASH: Ben begins planning his next birthday party the day after his last.  I love seeing him so excited as it draws near.  He is soooooooooo very special to me, and I love celebrating his life.

MY NEW GRILL:  We were gifted with a new grill/smoker from Grandma Deb this weekend after our old one finally went kaput.  My mom bought our first grill around 6 years ago, and we loved it.  The way I see it, the moms can just continue to alternate these purchases (I'm sure they do not find this funny).

FAMILY TIME: We spent a lot of time outside this past weekend.  I loved seeing both kids on their bikes, meeting new neighbors (thank goodness Greg has some social skills, as I DO NOT), and spending time on the patio.

LIGHT FOODS: I have been eating HUGE salads every day. Last night, I baked tilapia and served it with a side of okra and tomatoes.  YUM YUM YUM

GORGEOUS WEATHER: Warm. Breezy. No mosquitos yet. Enough said.

SPRING PROGRAMS: Ben's spring program is entitled "How Does Your Garden Groove?" He has a speaking part and his first solo.  Grandma Deb helped me with the corn costumes, proving that two heads are definitely better than one!  We made 2 costumes together, and I have 1 left.  I loved the way it turned out!

LILITH FAIR: My sis invited me to Lilith Fair this summer, and the calendar actually agrees! This is unheard of.  The calendar never agrees.  I can't wait to spend the day with two of my favorite girls (minus my absolute favorite girl of course; Sadie will go in a few years for sure) listening to some amazing music! SO EXCITED!!!!   http://www.lilithfair.com/
