Confessions of a now 30 year old

The things I've learned about me...
*My husband is perfect for me, makes yummy cinnamon rolls, and is great at snuggling.
*Nothing makes me smile like my 3 beautiful kids who smother me with kisses and surprisingly think of me as perfect. 
(slightly skewed insight I know, but hey I'll take it!)
 *My favorite pair of jeans are uncomfortably snug, but I can still breathe when I button them.
*I can survive night after night of interrupted sleep.
*Justin Timberlake makes me feel like the 15 year old groupie I never was.
*I still need my mommy when I'm sick.
*I have the best friends a girl could ask for.
*A good haircut can make the extra 10 lbs just seem to melt away.
*There is something to be said about spending the moola and buying a Victoria Secrets bra.
*Exercise is overrated.
*Chocolate is not.
*I can still play a mean game of hide-and-seek.
*A mini van excites me more than I would like to admit.
*Diet DR Pepper is a girl's best friend.
*I am still afraid of the dark.
*I know that chest hair should gross me out, but I kind of like it? (only Lloyd's of course)
*I am finally starting to accept I will never have another growth spurt.
*I couldn't imagine my life without the Gospel and am so blessed to have it.
*I couldn't be happier and have had the best birthday a girl could ask for.
... and my diet will start tomorrow!

Not just any Rice Crispy Treat

Matt was in charge of the treat for FHE and after much deliberation, decided that rice crispies were the best option. But we couldn't just leave well enough alone. We decided to put strawberry marshmallows in them, cut them out in star shapes, dip them in white chocolate, and then last but not least top them off with sprinkles. SOOOOO GOOD!

My BIG Helper

Call me crazy... I had never thought to just remove and disassemble the entire dishwasher when I was unloading it. Makes sense right?

Matt turns 5

So Matt is the BIG 5!!! The day started with his requested doughnuts for breakfast, then off to preschool, then that night a pizza party with his cousins and grandparents. We had such a fun day and I can't believe that he is already 5. He requested this football cake (like the one he had last year) We can't get enough of his fun dance moves and his great smile. WE LOVE YOU MATT! Happy Birthday.
