Food for thought . . . .

Yesterday, I treated myself to some time with friends. I had done my chores and decided "I need lunch!" So . . . my friend, Kelly, picked me up and we headed to Olive Garden for some soup/salad/breadstick action. We even got the shrimp scampi appetizer and topped it with a Diet Coke! YUM!

Afterwards we headed to Poppy's and perused the place. She had never been and was overwhelmed but we coveted many things. I bought only one thing - I know, amazing! - but was proud considering how as of late, I've spent an average of $150 each visit! Last visit cost me over $250 - for my bench. But I'm loving it! Still need to get the landscape around it looking at peak but it's beginning to warm up now and I may head out to prune and weed and plant before the rain hits again on Sunday.

After returning home, teaching a few lessons (5) and getting kids to clean their rooms (finally done! even went through their drawers and packed up some bags for DI), it was time to head to the theatre. Geoff got home late from picking up Kylee from dance, but I can't complain. He took her for her PPI (Personal Priesthood Interview) and ice cream. They had a great talk he said. Nothing huge and earth-moving, well except for her, but they had a chance to really bond. I love that he takes the time to do this with each of my kids once a month. We try and have time as a family but it's the one-on-one that they really relish in. I did a little blog-reading last night and took a test that I saw. I guess I act my age (well, a few years younger)!

You Act Like You Are 34 Years Old

You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
You're responsible, wise, and have enough experience to understand a lot of the world.

You're at the point in your life where you understand yourself pretty well.
You are figuring out what you want... and how to get it!

Well, now I'm off to get ready for my day! I did my workout, but we are foregoing our 4 mile walk this morning in order to make it to the stores when they open at 10am. JT, KB and I are doing lunch and Rustic Hutch today!! Yea for me! Super excited! Oh and sidenote: I booked our hotel last night! YEA! Feb. 15-17th I'm gone, baby! YAHOO!!

I love the new picture on the blog. You all look wonderful!

Lunch without kids - wow. Ham starts school in 4 years, maybe we can go have lunch then.

I took that thing too, and I didn't post it because I got the same answer you did. Which, I guess is fine since I'm 33. :)

I want to go to that Poppy's! Wow!
