Week 15

Hello and welcome back.  Here we are well into April.  What a week last week was!  More birthdays, more travel, and more rain. I've got to make this quick--meetings, meetings, and more meetings all stacked up for today.

Here's a look at how last week went down:

Day 95- Monday, 4/4/16
It's been warm and sunny and nice enough to open some windows which Rusty appreciates.  He loves taking in the fresh air, listening to the birds, and watching the bugs. Later John and Tyler watched  the college basketball championship game together. It was a nail biter and sadly John's Carolina team lost in the end.

Day 96- Tuesday, 4/5/16
I'm loving all the new spring flowers.  These were shining in the morning sun as I went to coffee at work. After work Brandon and I hit up Petco to get some birthday presents for Bella.  This is his happy place.  Seriously!  I should shop here for HIS birthday ;0)

Day 97- Wednesday, 4/6/16
Driving into work I noticed my odometer hit 111,111 so I had to pull over and take a picture.  After work there was a swim meet for the Raiders that I timed at.  Tyler is on the opposite side of the pool under a towel protecting himself from the blaring sun as he counts laps for a teammate.   It was a warm one today!

Day 98- Thursday, 4/7/16
Happy Birthday to John and Bella!  Interestingly enough they both turn 49 today--him in people years and her in dog years.  How cool is that?!

Day 99- Friday, 4/8/16
Here we go on another college tour trip.  We flew out early this morning and spent most the day at UC Irive, home of the Anteaters, and then made our way to UCLA, home of the Bruins.  As you can see it's rained on and off which is not what you expect visiting LA but we were prepared so it was all good.

Day 100- Saturday, 4/9/16
Today was all about UCLA.  The general tours were booked through April so we thought we'd have to self tour, but at the last minute we found an admitted student's tour which was perfect.  The campus is amazing and the school spirit is infectious.  I fell in love with the buildings and Tyler fell in love with Pauley Pavilion ;0)  They have so many great programs too like "Puppies on the Hill".  What?! Yep!  They bring puppies up to the residence hall hill during finals to help the students destress.  Where was that when I was in college?  I could go on and on.  This place is a top contender for sure.  Time to head home.

Day 101- Sunday, 4/10/16
Back at home it's back to regular Sunday happenings- grocery shopping, laundry, car maintenance, and playing outside.  We're all so happy the rain is taking a break now. A couple soggy days is enough in the spring.

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.


  1. What a busy week with tons to celebrate! Can't wait to hear the college choice!

  2. UCLA sounds like a winner! When does he have to decide? Love the spring flowers and happy birthday to John! You have a couple birthday during this time! Hope you have a great week!

  3. That's FUN that John & Bella both turned 49 on the same day! :)
    My car just went over 100,000 as I pulled into the driveway a few weeks ago, so I snapped a picture as well. Way to catch it at 111,111!
