60th Birthday Surprise!

My mom turned 60 on February 24th, 2014.  She is the kindest, most thoughtful, giving person I know.  It was only logical to throw her a surprise party with her closest girlfriends.  My sisters and I planned a "Favorite Things Party" centered around my mom.  It was so great to see so many faces from all parts of my moms life.  To say that she is LOVED would be an understatement indeed!   
She had NO CLUE any of this was going on.  We were all dying because she stood at the entrance of the room forever in total shock and disbelief. 

We LOVE you mom!  You are indeed a "favorite thing" in all of our lives!

Valentine's Day.

We had a very random Valentine's Day this year.  We had been talking about getting away and going somewhere fun but between school and work schedules it never seemed to happen.  My sister Emily offered to let us use her hotel deal, we just had to meet her in Ontario.  Long story short, we met up with the Martinos and Menloves for a teppanyaki dinner in the Inland Empire and then Adam and I stayed at a Marriott in Ontario of all places.  We went shopping for the weekend, ate out, relaxed. and totally enjoyed our time away from the business of life.  I loved reconnecting and just focusing on each other without the distractions of kids, work, phones, etc.  It is safe to say that we still love each other after all these years!
