- Fresh peach shake and a Krispy Kreme doughnut run (Apparently my thinking was I needed to eat enough to hibernate for the winter.. is that called food storage?)
- Sleeping in
- Watching the cheesiest "horror/slasher" flick starring Mischa Barton (I couldn't help it! It sucked me in with how bad it was!)
- Breakfast in bed
It's a beautiful day outside today, I love this time of year. Happy Monday!

Long ago.. long before I met Robert. Long before I started this fun little blog. I was young, single and was having fun dating a bunch of different guys. (I wasn't a playyah.. but I had a little game... wow. I am so white.)
Well I was dating this guy casually, while I was dating another guy kind of seriously. (Don't judge me.. the other guy knew I was still dating around.) The one time in my life I did that. And of course I got busted for it. But that will come later. This certain gentleman was a cute guy, that I dated a few times and had fun with, but it just never got serious. One of the classic cases of.. just not meant to be.
2. Then I started dating the other guy and I kind of lost track of this guy. Well after guy number 2 and I broke up, I started seeing this guy around. I happened to get tickets to an event downtown at the last minute. I was already downtown, so I called him up to see if he wanted to meet me there and join me for the event. He said yes, and drove a separate car downtown. When the event was over he offered to drive me to my car. Well the area was packed and I drive a white Honda Accord. Needless to say there were about a million parked white Honda's. After driving around forever, I finally find my car. (so I thought)
We said our goodbye's and I got out of the car. Unfortunately as I approached I realized it wasn't my car. I started walking really slowly and hoped he wouldn't be a gentleman and wait for me to get into the car. No such luck. I muttered under my breath "See ya!" and fumbled for my keys in my purse, hoping he would drive away. After about a couple minutes I hear him call out "That's not your car is it?". I slowly turned around with my head down, embarrassed. Once again he was super nice and said "Get back in the car!"

This last weekend we threw my sister a surprise party. She has had a rough year and we thought it would be fun to make her feel extra special. I took these pictures of her kids and printed them for her. I know I'm biased since they are my nephews and niece, but I think they are some of the cutest kids out there.

Today's peeps post is about one of my favorite people. My mama bear. Have you met her?
She's a world traveler, chef extraordinaire, a rock climber, an amazing mom. (just to name a few)
She stands by her convictions and beliefs. She loves, cares, and protects her family. She's hysterical, a fun person to be around, and would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it.
She's the funnest person to give a gift to, or share a talent with. She raves and makes you feel as if you are the most amazing person in existence. She cooks like no one's business. She can whip up a recipe off the top of her head and it will knock your socks off.
She's smart. My entire childhood I always knew I could ask her a question and she would know. Or find the answer. She is the best example of someone who practices what she preaches that I can think of.
She would do anything for her kids. She loves her husband and is an amazing example of a strong woman who has a strong marriage. She has always taught me to stand up for myself and be strong. To realize my value.
Something that amazes me is she knows how to do EVERYTHING. She cooks, sews, draws, rock climbs, and has a better top bowling score than I do. (In the 240's!) She went back to school to get her nursing degree just a few years ago. Not a lot of people would have the courage or the drive to do that.
My mom has such a witty sense of humor. She is the best person to get laughing, because it's infectious. My mom has a sense of humor that catches me off guard sometimes with how funny it is.
She amazes me with her strength. Have I mentioned she's pretty? Well beautiful really. She's a mom to be proud of. And I am. I can't imagine life without her. I wouldn't know how to live it. She helps me solve problems, she encourages me. She truly cares.
In a world of mothers who aren't there for their kids, who aren't involved in their lives. I have a hard time fathoming why I get to be so blessed and lucky to have such an incredible mom. We have spent nights laughing our guts out until we are crying. We have been on adventures and a plethora of vacations. She has taught me the love of traveling and how important it is to know what else is out there and to appreciate what our country has to offer.
When I was little she made it a point to stay home so she would be there during the week, and so I would be able to have someone to come home to. She helped me with countless school projects and science fairs. She made the mediocre, magnificent.
I love you mom. I hope you realize how much you affect my life and make it better. I really have been blessed with family. Mom you are my rock, I don't express my feelings very well, but you can rest assured that when I count my blessings and pray and thank Heavenly Father, you are one of the first names I mention.Love you,
