Hi! It's me

Hello there! I am posting a picture of myself for my friends that I have not seen in forever. You know, so you don't forget what I look like. Hehe.

Catching up

On Monday Bridget started her new preschool. She is attending Blue Valley Montessori School. It is 5 days a week from 8:30- to 12:45. The school is great. I really think that Bridget will do great in the montessori setting. But this morning, on the THIRD day, this is the conversation:

"Bridget, we need to get you dressed"

"What for mom?"

"So you can go to school"


"Yes, you go everyday, except Sat and Sunday"


"So you can go learn new things"

"But I'm going to get tired of that stuff"

Nice. She only went 2 days and she is tired of the stuff already. She hasn't even met the whole class yet because the returning students start on Thursday. I think she will be happier when there are more kids in there with her, right now there are only 7. So we will see.

Other news.

Schaun and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on August 10. We had a great time. The first reason it was so nice is because it was free. The second reason is what we did.

It was free becuase he managed to get his company to pay for it. They do things like this for him sometimes. They know he is making them more money than anybody else in the company and they do not pay him enough salary for the revenue he generates or for the hours that he puts in.

What we did was stay at the Westin Crown Center for 2 nights. The girls stayed with Stacy (and thankfully that went smooth). We had the "wedding package" which included room service breakfast both days, and the first night we got champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We had a great room with a great view of downtown and Union Station. We had dinner at the Melting Pot on the Plaza. That was so yummy and so fun! The next night we ate at Harrahs at the Buffet and had all you can eat crab legs. Yum! This was Schaun's idea. He likes to gamble a little. I think it is a waste because I ALWAYS lose. He didn't have much fun because he lost. I bet $20 and left with $25. Whoo hoo!

It was a nice time. And the idea of leaving the girls and having alone time is nice, but in reality I missed them lots!
