Girls Weekend in Park City

My best friend, Mandie, and I decided that we deserved some time to be girls. Away from husbands and kids, even if it was only one night. We headed up to Park City and our first stop was to get manicures and pedicures. Surprisingly enough...this was my first experience with both. I assure you, it won't be my last!!

Here we are enjoying the massage chairs.
And here are my cute painted toes!

After our lovely afternoon at the spa we decided to go chill in the hot tub at the hotel. Then it was off to a night of dinner and shopping. I found a great new purse at Liz Claiborne for$17.99! It was originally $50!

This is not the one I chose.

We were kindof in a silly mood and decided to find some matching earrings to remember the weekend by. We walked into Clairs and I saw the ear peircing station. I have been wanting to re-peirce my upper left ear for a while now. I have had it done twice before and both times it got infected for different reasons and I had to let it grow over. So, on a whim...I asked Mandie if she would be willing to get hers done too.

I was brave and went first. I did appreciate the teddy bear to hold onto. :)

Right after. Owie!

Mandie's turn...she looks nervous!

All done!
Our ears look pretty red...but it really wasn't too painful.

Chillin' in the hotel. We found some girl scout cookies on the way up!
Mandie is proud of her savings!

At the Utah Olympic Park.

It was quite a windy day.

I Love Lucy chocolates were a little out of our price range for chocolate.
I want to thank Mandie for such a great time! I hope this is something that we can make happen more regularly. Anyone else interested in coming next year, just let us know. :)

Sean turned 2

My Baby Sean is 2 years old. What are we to do?? :) He started early with his 2 year old attitude. Then he is the sweetest baby when he wants to cuddle. According to my dad (we always measure the kids at age 2 then double it to see how tall they are supposed to be) Sean will be 5'7". Not too short, but definitely shorter than his brothers. He is my little runt! We had a small family party yesterday to celebrate his birthday. We love you, Sean!

His cake

He has such helpful brothers when blowing out the candles.


Mom & Dad got Sean his very own slide!

(Should of just got him a box!)

Damon's baptism

We had a very special day in our family yesterday. Damon was baptized. We are so proud of him and of the example he is to his younger brothers. Thanks to everyone who participated and came to support him. We are so blessed to have such a big, wonderful family.

My goal update

So, I am a little embarrassed to report that I only lost 1 pound total in Feb. I have no one to blame but myself. I was up and down all month and the only good news is that I ended down at least a little. It is a new month and I am ready to go! I've got 3 months before boating season and I intend to look good in my swim suit! I'll keep you updated.
