Over the weekend, Kristoffer and I had some time ourselves, it was fabulous. Trine and Barry took our children Saturday afternoon over to Sunday afternoon, so we had an overnight alone, so nice!! We tooled around town and just had so much fun being together...alone! Later that evening, we went to the BYU men's volleyball game.
It totally made me miss being on the court. I played in HS, and I really miss it!!
Just being a little weird.
Ok, so this picture below. The man on the left was handing out programs/flyers for the game and these two blondies to the right were completely rude to him. This guy is quite old, heavyset, very gray in color (which, as a nurse, tells me he has at least a few other things going on), can hardly hear, and who knows how much oxygen his brain is getting. So these blonde brutes come in, and start haggling with him that those three seats are theirs, they've paid for them, we had this problem last night, you need to move out of our seat, blah blah blah. It was so uncomfortable to watch, because this poor guy can hardly walk, or hear, or even understand what they are saying, and these girls....in a room with more than one empty available seat on the front row are just raking him over the coals. They looked back at us for maybe some validation, but they weren't gettin' any from me. I get it, you paid for three seats, and this guy is sitting in one, and there are two of you. But why ya gotta be a jerk??
We met up with some friends from Saratoga Springs. So this is Claire and Dan. We met them in NY six years ago when they were living there and we had come back to visit. I was pregnant with Marin, and she was pregnant with her first girl also....we ended up delivering within a day of one another, how funny! I'm telling you, Claire and I seem to go through such similar things at almost the same times...it's uncanny. SO SO good to get together with them!
Then we drove back up to Salt Lake and stayed the night at a little hotel. Our room was super tiny, with no fan, so I was dying that night, and poor Kristoffer felt so bad. I just love that he made an effort to get us out of the house.
Sunday we went to church, without children...which was also very strange, and then Trine and Barry came to drop off the kids shortly thereafter. They ahd taken the kids to Thanksgiving Point's Dinosaur Museam, and Marin got some cute, colorful rocks...just like my girl.
She's my sweetie!
That weekend, Trine and Barry picked up their brand new 8 week old English Golden Retriever puppy, Sofie. She is just adorable!
It was pretty nice out that day, so I took my girl across the street for a walk in the park. We made a little tiny ice house for the fairies.
It was on our walk I remembered that Marin was going to be the student spotlight that week, and I hadn't made a poster! I scrambled to find some pics and had them printed at Walgreens (I know, I know....) and threw this poster together. I think it turned out OK!
Marin had been depserately wanting to make cupcakes using a recipe she had found. I was a little hesitant looking at the recipe...it didn't seem like it was going to turn out, but we made them anyway; and they so di NOT turn out. Poor Marin, she was so disappointed.
When I was sick last week, my sweet and wonderful husband bought me some gorgeous roses. I love that guy, he is the best things EVER.
