I am a widow for this week so I've had my hands full. And my in-laws are in town. Well, not all of them...just my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law. They are here because it is Spring Break and because the boys in the family are riding bikes down in Moab. Not all the boys got to go. The Man is here and the Boy has to stay with the girls. Still, he got to try out Grampa's equipment before they left. My sister-in-law is a senior in high school this year. Her main objective on this trip was to find a modest prom dress (secondary objective was to tour BYU). So we went shopping for a dress. It was so much fun, like having my very own, life-sized Barbie doll! She looked amazing in everything so I got to make her try on dresses that I would have loved to wear. "Try this one next!" "But I wore green last year." "Who cares? Try it on!" "But it's over $300." "Come on! I must live vicariously!" She did find an amazing dress (the ruffly one in black with a white sash). Now she just needs to find a date.
Tomorrow I am assisting in da Boo's preschool field trip to the Bean Museum. Should be fun! Then I get to go spend the night with the Man up in SLC. He's promised to take me out to a really nice restaurant. "Really Nice" means they don't ask if I want fries with that. Also, we're supposed to go shopping for a bedroom set. We have our clothes in laundry baskets and rubbermaid drawers since we got married. I think it's time my nightstand doesn't have a snap-on lid...

I've missed you Jessiemadoodle!! What fun dress shopping. I miss those days. My favorite dress has to be the beautiful one your mom made for me. I loved that dress. I wish I was that small again :( Oh well, the price you pay for being a mom.
