50 years ago...

August 26, 1959

I cannot believe my mom is 50 today! Holy cow! What an amazing woman she is though! I've never met anyone quite like her. MY mom is hilarious, generous, smart, truthful, strong, devoted, dependable, beautiful, emotional. She would do anything for anyone. I'm lucky to be able to call her my best friend. Looking back, I cannot think of a time when she wasn't there for me, she always had my back. Always.

MY mom never compared the 4 of us. We're lucky that way.

She is the sweetest, best grandma a child could seriously ever hope for. I wish people could see how much my kids LOVE you! They too are so lucky!

Happy Birthday day, mom! I love you so much and I hope that you have an amazing day because you truly deserve it.
Here's to another 50 years!

This and That

Well, summer is just about over. Kids are back in school.

Ben is already substitute teaching . The nights are cooler. NFL pre-season games are on.

(I must admit, I am a little excited for football season!)

Benson will start pre-school in September. I love this time of year. I also L.O.V.E school supplies! I so miss that part about school. I could seriously browse the stationary aisle forever.

Anyway, here's what we've been up to:

Benson and Hiley pretending to be cowboys with some cute hats and lacross sticks. Girls night out in Salt Lake with Lauren, Sam and Paige.

Mom and Lou coming to visit! While they were here we did some SERIOUS coupon shopping. We spent $94.00 but saved $300. Crazy but so much fun!!! I also got extensions which have been interesting... I'm still getting used to them. Its weird to see myself with long hair. I'll try and get some pictures posted. Anyway, things are going pretty good. :)
