A fabulous Weekend

This last weekend Nate and I went to Park City kidless!!! It was so wonderful. A HUGE thank you to Karen and Fam, and Chad & Abbi. Thank you for taking such great care of our boys! We stayed in a condo, went out to eat, watched movies, shopped, and relaxed. Then on Saturday night, Nate surprised me and had my good friends waiting at the restaurant when we got to dinner for my birthday. I had no idea! It was so great to hang out with them. I loved it! Here are some pics from the night.Here we all are!Here we all are!

Lindsay and Steve. Nice Linds! :)

Just the girls

Overall, it was a fabulous weekend! Thank you Nate. I love you so much and Happy 6 years!

Do I Have To Answer?

I went to the dentist yesterday. The Dental Hygenist is the nicest thing, but kept asking me questions when she had all that in my mouth. Am I really suppose to answer? It just cracked me up!

A Day Late....

Mother's Days was a good day! It was hard with it being the day it is and it being exactly a month after mom passed away. The boys spoiled me! I got all of my favorite things all throughout the day. Chocolate glazed donut holes, grape Propel, a yellow rose, chapstick, Mint Oreos,Tevas, and a Sunday nap. Ok, so really not the healthiest of stuff! Yikes! But I loved it all! Nate made me a yummy roast dinner with carrots and potatoes. It was so good!

We then went to see Nate's mom and had chocolate cake. Overall, it was a good day! I love my little men and I have to say it isn't so bad being the only girl in the family because I sure get spoiled! I will take that!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Home Once Again

We are home once again. It has been an emotional last couple of months. The Memorial Service for my mom went really well. It is still all so surreal. I keep having to remind myself she is gone. Not a fun reality to face. I MISS HER! As much as we knew this was coming, it doesn't make it any easier. It is bitter sweet. We will miss her dearly, but she is free and happy. That brings me joy during this sad time. You can look at her obituary here if you are interested. The week leading up to the Memorial Service was so busy. It is like planning a wedding in 5 days, but it is really sad. I almost didn't want the Memorial Service to end, because then I knew I had to move on. It is a weird feeling. One blessing from this experience is that our little family pulled together. It was amazing. We were all there for each other. I love my brothers and sisters and Dad so much! I admire each one of them.

We are trying to get back into the swing of things. Things are going ok. I think about my mom ALOT. I know it just takes time for it to get easier. So I will just take it one day at a time.
