I am back and of course oh so tired. I have lost my voice (shocking I know). But boy did I have a great time. The highlights for me were getting to see my dear friends Katharina Doyle, Cari Locken, & Deanna Hutchinson. That is always nice to be able to hang out and catch up. But the Abbottsford show was really fun. The classes were fun, we had fun in the booth and had lot's of adventures. One night Cari, Katharina & I were whisked away to a charming store in Port Moody, "Cherish your thoughts". This has got to be the most perfect little store that welcomes you in with both arms. It has a little fancy kitchen in it where they serve you lattes & cookies WHILE you shop. Their store is so full of character and little things to always keep looking at. We enjoyed our escape. Then we went out to a Thai restaurant and oh so yummo! I LOVE Thai. It could be my little love for anything coconut, but it was so good.
Did I tell you how beautiful BC was in general. The green green grass, pink magnolia trees everywhere. I LOVE spring. And to arrive home to wonderful weather was such a blessing. I don't want to see snow for at least 7 months!
Upon returning I of course ran into friends at the airport. It is a running joke in our family that I can't step foot in the airport without knowing someone. So far I think out of hundreds of flights only once I didn't know someone. weird. But I ran into Lani & Darren & their dad. So that was cool and Lani told me her sister Marlys just had a baby boy, Chase!!! So congrats Marlys, Chris & Grayson on the little tikes arrival. Can't wait to meet him.
What else to tell? Ireland is calling me daddy all day. I guess since bot of us were gone, she is sure missing her daddy. But the cutest thing ever. When I got off the plane the kids were there with my mom to pick me up and baby girl was sporting some new attire. pink genuine cowboy boots. Oh was this little cowgirl working them too. So I guess that my mom did a little shopping for the kids before they took them to a bull sale yesterday. Too funny. When we saw my brother Shane & Andrea yesterday, Andrea had on boots too so Ireland sure thought that was cute. Oh speaking of which...
I can share some great news. I am going to be an Auntie again. WOOHOO. My brother Shane and Andrea are due in September. So excited. Congrats!!!!
