Update

This month has been a good month. I have stayed very busy planning, and working on decorating for a stake Enrichment activity coming up in March, which I love to do because I love to decorate, but it does take a lot of time. Dan's mom, Sue, came to visit last weekend and we had a stupendous time hanging out and relaxing. I owe her a huge thank you because I put her to work. She helped me with decorating and painting projects for Enrichment.

It is getting even warmer here, which is always great in my book. Dan and I are planning a romantic get away trip to Austin in a couple weeks and I am counting down the days until we go. I once heard that you should give yourself something to look forward to everyday. Good advice. Today was a great day because I ordered 5 boxes of Samoa girl scout cookies and one box of thin mint cookies and they came today. I don't like the thin mint cookies though, they are for Dan. Something about mint and chocolate mixed makes me think of toothpaste in my chocolate. Not very appetising. Anyway, I have almost eaten an entire box of the Samoa cookies just today. Where is my self control? I better pace myself or these bad boys aren't going to last for much longer.

For Valentines Day, Dan and I saved our shekels and splurged big time by going out to a fancy pants restaurant called Three Forks. Sometimes I don't think we should spoil ourselves like that because it's hard to go back to our regular, affordable restaurants after tasting such fine dining.

Hope all is well for all of you!

I can't believe you think thin mints taste like toothpaste!!! I love ALL girl scout cookies. Hmmm, haven't seen any here in AK yet, I'll have to be on the lookout.

At least you spoil yourselves once in a while. Don't forget to do that. It's easy to forget while you're in school.:)

you are so lucky to be in enrichment. i just got released and i'm so sad. i'm in sunbeams. a 3 year old yelled at me when i tried to tell him he has 2 dads. he's there yelling at the top of his lungs, "I ONLY HAVE ONE DAD!" be grateful to be amoung adults. have a good time on your get away.

Lindsey, would it shock you entirely if I told you that Somoans are my favorite girl scout cookie?
