a little bit of everything

so i know it has been a while since i have posted anything...i don't know why i thought i would good at this! so now i am way behind and every time i thought about writing i would think, that is just going to be way too much to write about! so i just decided to give some highlights and random thoughts :)

*garza and mom came to visit... it was so fun having garza up here! i so enjoyed his visit and getting to spend some time with him...we decided that he should move up here! then mom came in on saturday morning, so she and i had girls day and garza, adam & rick had guys day! i know the boys had a good time, but couldn't tell you all the details of their day because i obviously wasn't there! i do know it consisted of town hall brewery, u of m tour, and maybe lunch at bww! i do know girls day was oh so fun!! i miss my mom so much, we always have so much fun together (and with nikki too!) so we started the day of going straight to grand ave with the idea of doing some shopping, but we made it through one store and decided we needed lunch in order to effectively shop :) so i took her to cafe latte... i think one of my new favorite places to eat! so mom and i shoved our faces and in between bites had rory & lorelai (mom & daughter on gilmore girls) like conversations! lunch was so so so yummy, and having mom there with me was even better!! then we went to bread & chocolate and samples all the delicious desserts :) then once we were re-fueled we were able to start shopping! we walked all down grand (which by the way it was a perfect sunny day in minnesota and was so fun to be walking outside) and stopped in all sorts of fun stores and boutiques...and of course all the while talking each others ears off! mom got to experience my downtown driving and parking skills...haha...and learned how small my bladder really is at starbucks...i won't go into details and it probably won't be as funny (one of those had to be there moments!) we seriously stopped in almost all the stores, and then headed off to home goods, and then came back home to meet the boys for a good home cooked meal made by all! we got to take both garza and mom to our new church on sunday which was exciting for us to show them our new church home! we then enjoyed a yummy sunday dinner with kelly & gary and then had to send zach back to texas :( while the boys went to the airport mom and i went to get a chick flick (i won't say the name in case people liked it) which mom and i must not have been in a girly mood because we spent most of the movie making fun of it and giggling at the cheesiness :) oops! the next few days we enjoyed mall of america and all it has to offer, general store, zida, pink door, kazolees, and much more! she came and nannied with me mon & wed, and also fell in love with sammy boy! we got to just hang out at the house some too which was nice i know for adam to steal in some time with her! we also had to send mom back to texas which was no fun! we definitely enjoyed both of their visits and would like to remind them and everyone else that our guest rooms are now empty...just saying!! (p.s we have no pictures with mom or garza...sad day! we were just having too much fun to remember to bust out the camera!)

*home shows...all three home shows are done and were huge successes!! i got to "work" one day (pretend i knew all about laminate counter tops, estimates, etc!) at the minneapolis one and it was so amazing at how big it was!! holy moly! the honey-doers booth looked AWESOME and got tons of traffic and lots of leads! the lakeville and apple valley shows weren't as big size wise as the minneapolis one, but got just as much business or more from those two shows together!! for those of you that haven't seen any of their honey-doers work you should check out their site they do phenomenal work...and if you live in minnesota and need some work done you know who to call!! okay i will stop!

*speaking of business...i need to double check with my business partner (jess) before i reveal too much, but let me just say jess and i have come up with a fabulous new business i know you all are going to love...i promise to give an update once i make sure we can officially let the world know!! YAY!! we are pretty excited!!

*march madness...i am not going to brag, i wish i joined a money league because i didn't do so shabby! adam didn't do so shabby in his league and won second place...wahoo! the most exciting thing though is that the TARHEELS W-O-N!! i love me some tarheels...and i think i have a small grandpa crush (aka: kinda wish he was one of my grandpas) on good ol' roy williams!

*dance i actually didn't get to go to ashley's dance show (i had posted previously that i thought i was getting to go) and i was super bummed about that! all the other sisters got to go so i was even more sad to miss out on that part as well :( i heard only wonderful things about the show and can't wait to watch her video! she is such an incredible dancer, and will be sending any daughters adam and i have straight to aunt ashley to learn to dance! speaking of sisters...i am excited because i think adam and i are going to get to make a trip to milwaukee to see dr. deveneau! that is so crazy to write and know that she is a doctor (and from what i have heard, only the world's greatest doctor!!)
*speaking of trips...rick, ashley, spenser, adam, and i will be in CABO in eleven days...wahoo! :) i cannot tell you how excited i am bout this trip! all i can think about these days are warm sun and delicious chips & guac!! YUM!! it will be such a wonderful trip, i cannot wait!

*hair cut...well i am finally using abbey & ashley's christmas present! they gave a certificate to spalon to get my hair cut! i have been wanting to cut my hair off and i finally doing it! i am doing locks of love so i for sure cutting 10 inches, but i think i will do a bit more!! i am not sure if it will look the greatest, but it is hair and it will grow back! :) the is the picture i think i am bringing with me...i might even go shorter...yikes i know!

well this is a pretty lengthy post so i better stop here! i am sure there will be a part two! plus adam and i have a walk to get to w/ harley! then some yummy dinner, maybe a movie, and off to bed! we hope you all have a wonderful week and a fabulous easter!! love you all!
