Loved this one too! Perfect for the shopaholic in your life!

It's been awhile! Seasonal Affective Disorder got the best of me this winter - this long, long, no good, very bad winter!!!

Anyway, feel like I am emerging from the depths a bit here. Saw this and loved it! I would love to do it in all white and cream buttons.

Amazing Birthday!

Wow! I had the best birthday day! We started the day bright and early with brunch at the Monte Carlo downtown.

Next we hopped the choo-choo from 1st Avenue to the Metrodome (or Target Field as Yvette likes to call it! :)

The plaza at the dome was packed!!!

Bill, Jeanine, Yvette, Todd, Me and JohnWe thought our sunglasses made us look cool!!! LOL!The game ended in an overtime win for the Vikes!!! They did it just for my birthday! Then Bill and I literally ran to the choo-choo to get back to our car so we could get to Brennan's Rebels 8U Championship game!The boys played great and won 28-7!!! What a great year of football and coaching this was!!!Yvette even made signs for the car! We ended the evening with a lovely dinner at Biaggi's in Maple Grove. It was one of the best birthdays ever!!! Thank you to great friends!!!

Abundantly Blessed - In just one weekend...

I am finally getting around to posting about our amazing October - there was not one single day that was not scheduled (well, except the 18th - but I did manage to fill that one up at the last minute too!) The highlight was the middle weekend which started with Erin's Sweet 16 Formal Dinner Party for her friends. What a surprising, incredible, fun night. The kids just stepped up to the plate so well. They were well behaved, polite and so sophisticated. I was thouroughly impressed. Thanks so much to John and Yvette and Janet for helping - we couldn't have done it without you! The next night was dinner club at Hoffman's. They had us all in the dungeon in the garage. It was spooky and beautiful all at once! Delicious meal and amazing company!
Then Sunday morning was Erin's confirmation service. I am pretty sure I cried through the entire thing! I was overwhelmed by the significance of the occasion, moved by Pastor Morrie's poignant sermon and so touched by my baby girl singing from her heart. It was so wonderful!
