What it's all about...

I'm a 39 year old wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt & friend. That should tell you who I'll be writing about most of the time.

Some Stuff...

As I said before, my wife bought me a new wedding ring for my birthday. I liked it, but we decided to see what else they had that I might like better. As soon as we walked up to the case, I found the right ring. Plus, they had one in my size. AND it wasn't as expensive as the one she chose. We had them clean and polish it, and it was mine. I love it so much and it's so comfortable. Shell is happy that I'm wearing a ring all the time again and that I am happy with it. Here it is:

We spent Mother's Day with my parents. My dad got some Carne Asada meat and grilled it to go with fresh tortillas, homemade guacamole, grilled corn on the cob and watermelon. We brought angel food cake, sweetened strawberries and cool whip for strawberry shortcakes. Plus, we had grilled shrimp as a snack when we first got there. It was all so yummy. The kids watched Kung Fu Panda, which is easily my son's favorite movie right now. Shell & I borrowed my mom's computer to buy tickets to see Wicked again this Fall. We are taking Dana & Jeannie with us, since they've never seen it. I love sharing the theater with others... Plus, our seats are in the 10th row, which is pretty awesome. I think this may be Shell's favorite of the shows we've seen. We've seen Phantom of the Opera (3 times), Miss Saigon, A Chorus Line, Beauty & the Beast, The Nutcracker ballet (2nd row seats, she fell asleep) and Wicked (twice for me, once for her so far). We're going to see Rent next month, and I'm really excited about that one. Yay for the theater!
Monday we went to an art show put on by the kids school that my daughter was entered in. She made a clay sculpture of a gargoyle, with a puppy's face. It was really cool. She didn't get any awards, but we were all really proud of her regardless.
Tuesday night was my son's final band concert of the year. This was his first year in band and he loved it. I think he's going to continue it next year. I'm so glad that both of my kids are interested in music and art.
Tonight is our hair appointment and then we are going over to Dana & Jeannie's to grill brats. Shell spent the day today with Dana shopping, so I'm sure she'll want to show me everything they bought. My wife loves to shop so much and loves to buy things for those she loves. I'm sure she bought Dana some clothes while they were out, probably some for me too. The objective was to get some summery clothes for the kids plus swimsuits for them to wear to Field Day tomorrow. With the temperature in the 70's & 80's for the next week, it sure feels like summer is close.
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day and that the weather is beautiful wherever you are.

Juju and I saw Rent on Broadway, second row! It was a fluke-- we did the backstage lottery thing, and just happened to get in. It was AWESOME--- you will LOVE it.

Your bbq sounds great--- all my favorites, especially strawberry shortcake!

Love the new ring, too-- very pretty!
