Fabulous Friday Returns Again

1.  It's crazy to think an entire week has gone by since we were at Disneyland.  We had such a fun time as a family and I can't wait to see them again.  Saturday mom, dad and I drove back to Phoenix while listening to conference in my new car.  I forgot to tell you what I got.  After trying all the cars I thought I wanted including the highlander, I purchased a 2016 Sante Fe.  I love it!  My cousin Emily also has one and her husband works at the factory, so he helped me in getting a great deal.  I was sad to let Betty go, but now I have Ivan.
I really wanted a white, red or gray car but the 3 toned brown interior won me over.
2.  Sunday we spent the day at Aunt Leslies.  I loved having breakfast of omelets made by Uncle Gordon.  It is a conference tradition and he makes the best.  We watched conference and also had dinner when Deb and her kids came over.
3.  Monday was dooms day.  It was nice to have mom and dad here.  I wasn't as sick as I had expected, but it still wasn't a breeze.  Dad left Tuesday morning and I slept most of the day, because I needed to feel well rested for Wednesday.
4.  My friend Kirt who I fell for in grad school came to town for a meeting on Wednesday.  I picked him up from the airport, had lunch with him, took a short nap while he was in his meeting, had dinner with him and his collegues and then he came over to see mom and eat a pumpkin muffin.  It was so good to see him and definitely too short of a time.  I can't wait to visit him and his 6 acre farm outside of New Orleans hopefully soon.  There are so many things I like about this guy.  He never makes me feel insecure, he makes me laugh and he is a hard worker.  I loved hearing about all the things he has done on his little farm that he purchased just a few months ago.  Oh and yes he has some fantastic lips.
5.  Last night mom and I went to see a program on Irving Berlin.  It was a one man play of his life story.  He wrote many songs including White Christmas, Happy Holiday and God Bless America. The talent of this man and the actor was incredible.
6.  Mom left yesterday morning.  She has been with me for a month.  I'm so grateful she was able to be with me through my chemo treatments.  She did so much for me while she was here.  I do have the best mom and can't imagine my life without her as my mom.
7.  This afternoon I stopped by Laura's and held her twins.  Poor things had their shots today and were a little fussy.  I spent the evening at Deb's.  We had dinner, watched Anne of Green Gables and she made delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  I admit, I've never read or watched Anne of Green Gables, but it is such a fun film.  I love that it is October and we are eating and drinking everything pumpkin, even though it is still 100 degrees. 


  1. New car, seeing an old friend with nice lips, holding those babies, Disneyland, omelettes at my parents, pumpkin cookies at Deb's, having your mom around for a month... you are living life to the fullest as always! I love it!

  2. Ha, I don't know if I feel that way, but when you say it, it sounds like I am!

  3. Dito to what Jennifer said, especially the nice lips part!!!!! Its always so fun to see you and it was extra fun seeing your parents!!!
