Mommy & Me Day...

Kids are off today, so I took off and we headed out to do some shopping at Justice, followed by a nice seafood lunch (it's Lent, can't have MEAT!)  My kids LOVE shrimp...and I'm not talking that fried crap, I'm talking grilled and garlic style...they also love mommy's Salmon!  They now want to try, next time...cha-ching!  Geesh, their taste is getting a bit expensive now...:)

Since we were at the mall, I thought maybe I could try and shop for ME, real quick run into Express...but we were not in there 2 seconds and Ashlee proclaims "can we leave, we've been in here for 10 hours..." followed by deep sighs of boredom!  Ok, so we headed into Victoria's Secret...I had $20 coupon and wanted to buy more of my fave perfume...real quick stop...but as I turned to try on samples of the perfume, I see my girls feeling up the mannequin...Mortified, we were so outta there...clearly I need a ME day!!!  Wine is on the menu tonite!!!

One Month

Today, at 5:15pm, marks ONE MONTH since my dad long month, yet the pain still feels like yesterday.  It's impossible to go into my parents home and not feel his presence.  When I walk up the stairs to his bedroom, that is when I really feel my sorrow most!  I miss you dad, and I pray that you are at peace!

Happy St. Pat's, 2011

The luck of the Irish is being with loving family and friends...that I must admit, I'm totally blessed with!!!!  I took today off, and plan to head to '10 East Tavern' to have some fun!!!!  Friday is another family party for St. Pat's...and Saturday another party for my aunt's bd...what a great time!!!

It's the first St. Pat's w/o my dad here, and we struggle daily to learn how to adjust to this life w/o him in it.:(  But, we stick together and remember the fun memories...and I feel much better knowing he is up there watching over us!

Twice as nice...
