My husband rocks!

My husband is so sweet. My neck has been bugging me for a week now, making me crazy (or more crazy than I all ready am) So he came home from Austins lacrosse game on Sat with a surprise for me. He gave me two fun magazines and sent me off to Starbucks with a gift card to get a yummy drink (banana smoothie) then at 3:30 he told me to read this card. It said go down to the spa and get a massage. Isn't that sweet? either he feels guilty cause he gets one every week from work or he is sick of me complaining of the pain. Either way it was wonderful, I'm so lucky!

just look at our lucky charms!

We have a tradition in our family where we decorate a box and leave it out for the leprechauns. Sometimes the leprechauns will do silly things, like make messes and sometimes they leave treats in the box. One year we didn't find the box for 2 days it was hidden so well! With all the red hair you would think there would be some Irish in us, nope just Norwegian and English. Top of the morn to ya!

OK today is suppose to be the day I go to see my granny. But....... Tanner woke up at 3:00am coughing and coughing he didn't want to go to be so he sleped on the couch. I then tried to go back to sleep but could not so went to the gym at 4:30am you heard right, and yes I am crazy! I get home at 7:15 and Britton said he was sick and Tay said he had a tummy ache, so I guess I wasn't going anywhere. Then Tanner was like I want to go to school I feel good, he wasn't coughing any more so I thought OK. Britton looked fine and just said his head hurt, I thought (you are so faking) I made him go to school. I just dropped off Tanner and was getting on the freeway to go to Bountiful, when Bry called and said that Britton felt sick and wants to come home, so off the freeway I came turned around and picked him up. So now my cute little granny is alone today and I feel so bad. Tay says he wants to go to school so I guess I'm going to let him. As Tay was getting on the bus I get a call (I'm not kidding) that Tanner had fallen in the bathroom and hurt his arm, and he won't stop crying. So off I went again to Crescent View to pick him up. I didn't look broken or out of joint or anything so I just gave him some ibuprofen and an icepack when we got home:(

so that was my morning and afternoon, since I'm home today I decided to try out some gourmet cupcakes. I am planning my Nieces wedding shower and we are doing cupcakes and little mini cakes . So for research purposes I'm making the chocolate mint ganosh filled cupcake today. This is the problem It calls for 5 sticks of butter and 8 eggs um can you say cholesterol? but just look at the finished product and can I just say they taste like heaven. these are totally going in the keeper file! If you live by me come on over I will never eat these all. just looking at them I've gained 10lbs. :)

My little sis

My sister just came out from New Jersey to see us. (I say "us" wishing it was just me but she had to see all her friends mom and dad and the in laws) I wish we had more time to spend with each other. I took her to my favorite little shee-shee store Dear Lizzy and we ate a yummy sandwich and a mint brownie. (then I had to buy another one to take home) Marcee doesn't love to shop so indulging me was so nice! If she lived here we could go shopping all the time, (Maybe thats why she dosn't live here) someday she will return to her roots here in snowy Utah I just know it!
Love you Marcee I will come out soon to NY to see you so have those great little shopping places ready for me. It will only be a few days you can handle a few days of shopping right?:)
