Scholarship for Babygirl2 and a mini Family reunion

Babygirl2 was awarded The Sean Brunske Economics Scholarship and she was invited to attend a reception in honor of this scholarship. Three other students received this same scholarship.

I am so proud of Babygirl2. It's not been an easy road for her and this honor, her achievement is so awesome. Of all my kids, she has the biggest brains. She also is witty, funny and gorgeous.

Babygirl2 use to tell me that I was too hard on her and that I thought she was much smarter than she really is. Remember when your Mom said stuff to you and you thought she was crazy only to realize later in life that she was right?

I think Babygirl2 realizes I was right:)

Saturday June 13

My Bigbro M and family flew in from Minnesota on Thursday for 4 short days. He has a new GREAT grand baby! He is the oldest and there are 7 of us in total (I'm the baby and yes I probably do still act like the baby!)but still! How we get this old?!?

I manage to get 5 out of 7 of us together. Two brothers couldn't make it.
We met at LaBella pizza for some catching up and some awesome pizza!

This place has been here for 54 years. I use to come here after football games and whenever I wanted great pizza.

Engagement Pictures

No, I am not engaged but babygirl2 is and we got her engagement pictures back just the other day. Unfortunately, the photographers' site does not allow me to download the pictures to my computer. But, being the smart woman that I am, I took a photo of the photo. Pretty cleaver huh?!

Overall, I was not that impressed with the pictures but enough are good that it works out okay. The wedding is coming faster then I can make money! EEK!!!!!!!!

Babygirl2 was awarded a scholarship from the Economics department and they are having a reception today to present it to her. I'm so proud of my babygirl! Pictures will certainly follow!

Six unimportant things that make me happy

Beach getaway

I went to Laguna beach last Sunday with my Mister. We stayed at Casa laguna Inn and Spa. This was my third visit, our second. Remember, we went in March?

I LOVE this place! Romantic and cozy. The staff is awesome and the breakfast is exceptional. Exactly what I needed.
We explored the grounds a little more this time. I was soooo pissed because I forgot the camera! Travel girl is losing it;(

We ate dinner at a place called The Beach House. It sits on the beach (DUH!)and we had a wonderful table overlooking the ocean.
Mister got the Maine lobster and it was excellent. I tried lobster thermador for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.

After a restful night sleep lulled by the ocean we ate a fabulous breakfast and hit the road. We drove along the coast and ended up in Newport beach. Walking barefoot in the sand and chatting about our kids, our future was a nice close to our fabulous 24 hours.

I just wish I had brought the f*&king camera. I much better with pictures then words;)
