I keep thinking I am going to find some time to write/post something and it just never happens.  Seriously, I started this post several days hours ago and I am only on the second sentence. 

Last week I was in lovely
Actually it wasn't bad but it was a LONG week.  The kicker was during my trip I found out I have to go back next month for another week.  Timing couldn't be worse ... it is the week of Mr. ESPN and Bia's birthdays.  Yeah crappy huh?  I am trying to think of special little surprises to have for them while I am gone.  Which means I have to have something special for Chatty too so she doesn't feel left out (it's always a competition at our house). 

Speaking of competitions, we spent last weekend watching Chatty play a lot of this:
She had a tournament last weekend and has another this weekend.  Then the season is over!  Amen!  Can you tell I am excited?  I need a little break from soccer.  She will still have clinics and some other stuff but the main season will be over.  Last weekend we had some good friends come watch her play.  Chatty loved having her own cheering section (even if they did lose).  Thanks Cottrell's and Pattersons for coming out! 

Bia is still dancing, well sort of.  She was asked to perform a few weeks ago at an event and froze on stage and cried.  Chatty (not at all shy like her sister) just didn't get it - "Why isn't she dancing mom?" 

This is the best time of year to live in the desert.  Beautiful weather, lots of fun activities going on ... so much so that I think we have something planned every single weekend between now and Easter.  Between family pictures, birthdays (Mr. ESPN, Bia and Chatty), birthday parties, spring basketball for Chatty (coached by Mr. ESPN), dance for Bia, church stuff, work, etc., it's crazy (good) around here. 

I better hit publish post now, otherwise it may be a few more days before this gets posted!

UGH! We are home on a snow day today. Can't wait to we hit those nice weekends. Nothing gets down at home, but we have so much fun.

How about you just post pictures of all your fun and fantastic things that you do in your beautiful weather so that we can all drool! said...

I bet it's hard being away from the girls for a week at a time! That's sweet you will leave some surprises for them. I also know what you mean about finding the time to's hard! However, being at stay at home mom right now, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I hit "publish"! Cheesy...I know!

I agree, it is such nice weather right now! I miss my business trips to New Jersey as every quarter I knew I could get a little dose of weather!
