ONE. Volleyball in Dallas.
Belle's team went to Nationals this past weekend. So crazy!
Not sure where they ended up placing...they finished 3-4.
TWO. I forgot to post about Easter.
Aren't these two girls just the cutest? Only 74 years between them.
My little Easter gang...minus Iz and I. They hunted eggs and got Easter baskets.
Instead of our traditional ham, we had hamballs. Big hit. Everyone was so full, there was no room
for ice cream sundaes for dessert. Rocket was most disappointed.
THREE. Because he really likes ice cream.
How I know this, is a mystery.
I kid. He actually likes everything. But he can devour a McDonald's kiddie cone (still free!) in about
15 seconds flat. And most of that is to crunch the cone up. The ice cream is gone in about three slurps.
So he takes after me that way.
I'm so proud.
FOUR. I tried the Pink Drink at Starbucks.
No... not the unicorn concoction. That has coffee in it.
This is coconut milk, strawberries...and evidently, gold dust. Because a grande is almost 5 bucks.
So this will be my one and only Think Pink. Sorry Starbucks. Just not worth it.
FIVE. Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth!
You know how sometimes you have friends that you only see in one place/situation?
Like only church... or only work? And then you see them somewhere else and it's weird.
There's a lady in my Kiwanis club (yep...I am a Kiwanian!) and she's just the neatest person.
I always love to sit by her and chat. We found over the months that we both really admire Queen Elizabeth.
We both dislike Prince Charles. We both watch The Crown... you get it.
Anyhoo... Queen Elizabeth's birthday was Friday, April 21. She turned 91. Same as my mama.
They are just three weeks apart. I think that's partly why she has this little special spot in my heart.
I asked my friend from Kiwanis (also named Elizabeth) if she wanted to go to lunch to celebrate the Queen's birthday.
Absolutely, she said.
I have to confess. I was a little nervous. This was outside the Kiwanis club. Just the two of us.
I didn't want to talk too much, or seem weird. Ok, weird-ER.
It was SO much fun. Delightful, in fact. And I think we'll do it again soon. :)
And she brought me daffodils! Ian asked why I had flowers...so I told him about our lunch.
Then he proceeded to talk in an English accent for the next hour. A darn good one, too.
Maybe not aristocracy or anything...but he could probably pass for a dock worker.
He's pretty awesome.
He will also still say I love you and give me a hug in front of his friends.
I may never let him leave.
SIX. My Baby Boo's are coming up!!!
I took the dome off my seeds and may have squealed a little. (a lot.)
24 out of 25 little Baby Boos are up now, and the uncooperative one better shape up. I'm so excited.
Baby Boo pumpkins are those cute little teeny white ones. Yay!!
And one little Japanese Black pumpkin seed is up!
